Summer is here, the hottest three months of the year when we need to remember to drink lots of water. It’s important to stay hydrated when it’s hot out because your body sweats naturally. Although drinking your water is important, you can also eat it! Many fruits and vegetables are made up almost entirely of water! Here are some of the most original freggies (fruits and veggies) that are made up of more than 90% water:
Radishes. 95% water.
Starfruit. 91% water.
Broccoli. 90.7% water.
Carrots. 90.4% water
Other fruits and vegetables that contain more than 90% water include: cucumbers, strawberries, celery, cantaloupe, grapefruit, watermelon, green peppers, tomatoes, spinach, and lemon. To put more water into your daily diet, eat more of these fruits and vegetables in your diet!
If you’re worried about the water you drink in your house, visit our website (wwww.filtercon.com) to find out how and why you need to be filtering your tap water before you drink it (Hint: there are lots of chemicals in it!).

The good state of California only has so many reservoirs in its groundwater that can be tapped and used for drinking water. Some of these reservoirs are used for the biggest cities, like L.A., San Francisco, and San Diego, as city water that comes through their tap. But other reservoirs lie underneath land bought by bottled water companies like Nestlé and Crystal Gyser. These companies not only take the water underneath the land below them, they also suck up water from entire communities surrounding them. Then those companies sell it back to the people in that community for a profit! What they’re doing isn’t just unfair, it’s environmentally destructive. California’s drought has snowballed into our current situation over the past few decades, and this year it’s getting its worst statistics yet. The bottled water industry is doing nothing to change its course of action because, as CEO of Nestlé says, “It is a good civic responsibility to provide hydration and bottled water to the public.”
Although we agree that the public should be hydrated, bottled water is not the best path to making this happen. Firstly, most plastic water bottles that are used by companies in the industry have BPA. Bisphenol A (BPA) is a synthetic compound based from carbon that doesn’t change form when it comes in contact with water and is clear and tough. So all of these chemicals from the plastics used to make “disposable” water bottles are going into your body.
How can you help stop harmful chemicals from coming into your body while also ceasing bottled water companies from hurting California’s natural resources? The answer is simple, buy a BPA-free, filtering water bottle. By reusing a chemical-free water bottle that filters out the bad chemicals in your city water, you’re not only helping the environment, you’re creating a healthier lifestyle for yourself.
Check out our BPA-free, filtering water bottle that takes the toxins out of approx. 40 gallons of water. Equal to about 300 uses before you have to change the filter!

Research from the University of Georgia has shown that diseased cells are surrounded by unstructured water and healthy cells are surrounded by structured water. Alkaline water only has 5-6 clusters and is the best structured, hydrating, most readily absorbed water on earth. “Structured water” is highly soluble and can easily absorb the body’s minerals. For this reason, minerals, trace minerals, and vitamins combine with structured water to enable the journey of these minerals from the digestive tract to the bloodstream and into the tissues. Alkaline water helps neutralize the acidity of the body caused by stress, the modern diet, and pollutants. If you want pure quality alkaline water, buying a system is the best option. Filtercon Technologies has created an alkaline system that lasts 2-3 years with no maintenance. The system raises your pH to a level anywhere between 8.5 and 10.5, which is recommended by doctors and physicians for a healthy body. You’ll feel safe that you’re not drinking BPA chemicals leaching from plastic bottles and helping the environment. Below is a video explaining more about our alkaline system.
