Fewer Sick Days

Being short staffed can have a huge impact on business performance and profits and can be a strain on the rest of the workforce. Filtered water can improve the immune system in a number of ways. Water filters remove toxins from the water supply, which can build up and weaken the immune system over time. Water also helps oxygenate blood and flush toxins out of your body. Drinking clean and healthy water helps your blood carry oxygen to the cells in your body. Water is essential in the production of ‘lymph’, a clear liquid made up of white blood cells. Without adequate hydration these white blood cells cannot travel all over the body and attack infections. Good, clean water helps your team stave off colds and stops the spread of illnesses throughout the office.
