Join AquaPrix’s EMPLOYEE WELLNESS initiative.
What is it?
Many AquaPrix clients have requested water safety information and health tips to pass on to employees, so we created a health and wellness informational program for you to share with your employees. Pure drinking water is the foundation of good health. In keeping with our mission to provide education, in addition to pure, quality drinking water, we’ll regularly send news and information about health and water consumption.
We encourage you to share these articles and announcements with your employees as a supplement to your existing wellness plan and to demonstrate your ongoing commitment to employee health and safety.
If you prefer AquaPrix’s Water & Wellness Alerts to go directly to your employees (and you have a single, universal email address that distributes to all employees), simply enter that in the sign-up box below or contact us with that information, and we’ll add you to our subscription list. You may also use the form below to unsubscribe if you no longer wish to receive the Water & Wellness Alerts. In either case, you will receive a confirmation request at the email address you enter.
Individual employee email addresses may also be entered, and once confirmed via email, they will be added to our subscription list.
Please let us know your thoughts about the Water & Wellness Alerts and how we might make this program more beneficial to your employees and your organization.
Here are a few FAQs we’ve received from our Water & Wellness Alerts program:
Q – What does water do for our body?
- A – Water is the second most important thing we put into our body. Air comes first. Water removes toxins from the body, regulates body temperature and helps all organs function. The human body is 70-80% water. Drinking enough water everyday is essential to good health. That’s water – not soda, not coffee, not anything except pure water.
Q – How much water should I drink a day?
- A – The average recommendation is 8-10 eight-ounce glasses everyday, but every body is different and water requirements vary depending on age, exercise level, what types of foods you eat and levels of stress. The safest way to measure the average amount of water your body needs per day is to divide your body weight by half. The answer is the number of ounces of water you should drink daily. For example, a 170-man should drink about ten 8-ounce glass of water each day. (170 / 2 = 85 ounces.)
Q – Does my body get minerals from drinking water?
- A – NO, Mom was right – eat your fruits and vegetables. Water, as a carrier of minerals, is fine for the plant. The plant converts the inorganic to organic minerals. Then our bodies can assimilate them. We have worked this process in reverse. We consume hard water saturated with calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, silicon, not realizing the body is unable to assimilate these nutrients efficiently. So nature tucks them in the joints as arthritis, in the intestinal walls as constipation, and along the arteries, causing them to harden. We have never realized that these collected minerals from the air and in the ground are all inorganic minerals, which cannot be assimilated by the body unless they are changed into organic minerals.
- A – This is a big controversy, but you can refer to the SFPUC web site where they describe what fluoride is and the effects fluoride can have on your body. Dr. Hardy Limeback, Head of Preventive Dentistry at the University of Toronto said in a recent press release, “there is no question that the risks far outweigh the benefits…Fluoride accumulates in the bones….We should all turn to what the Europeans are doing and ban fluoride from the water supplies.”

- A – AQUAPRIX offers several systems for home users. Click here to learn more about residential water purification systems.
Q – How did innowave® incorporated, A Mutual of Omaha Subsidiary, get involved in drinking water?
- A – Over 5 years ago innowave®, A Mutual of Omaha Subsidiary, spent time and money researching the water quality in the United States. Mutual of Omaha asked two questions: What is the quality of water in the United States, and is it affecting human health? From their research, the results were staggering and compelled innowave® to enter into the drinking water industry.
