6 Benefits of Bottled Water
Water is such a versatile beverage, with many different options making it easier than ever to get adequate hydration throughout the day. Bottled water has grown more popular over time due to the many benefits it can offer, from convenience to health.
Here at Exell, we are committed to providing you and your family with quality spring water delivered straight to your door.

We genuinely believe in the benefits that bottled water has to offer, and we want to provide convenience and availability within our community.
So, what are the benefits to choosing bottled water over other options, you ask? Let’s take a look!
Benefits of Bottled Water
First things first, convenience is a priority among most consumers. Our body requires a suggested 2-3 liters of daily water intake to stay healthy and energized, and it is important to eliminate as many obstacles as possible to help ensure that hydration is always met.
The attractiveness of a grab-and-go option is undeniable. Bottled water is highly available in varying sizes, making it the easiest option out there. It is common to get distracted during the day and forget the importance of hydrating.
When busy, we often reach for caffeinated options, which act as diuretics, increasing the risk of dehydration. Having a bottle of water serves as a physical reminder to drink, as well as a portable option that can easily be transported with you throughout the day.
Taking a stroll down the water aisle at the grocery store can be overwhelming. It is hard to know what you are looking for when there are so many buzzwords out there.
Let’s take a look at the various sourcing options that are available in bottled water:
- Purified Water has been mechanically filtered or processed to remove impurities. There are many different types of purification, distillation being one.
- Distilled water is a form of purified water that has been boiled to rid the water of its contaminants. These impurities include inorganic minerals or metals which have a higher boiling point than 212°.
The idea behind distillation is that the water is boiled into vapor, leaving behind the impurities which do not boil at that low of a temperature. The vapor is then condensed back into a liquid and bottled.
- Spring Water is defined by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as being “derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth.” The water’s life cycle provides vital nutrients gathered from the soil it passes through. Simply put, it must originate from an underground aquifer to be labeled as spring water.
Bottled water goes through a rigorous regulation process to meet the standards that are required by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unlike tap water, it consistently has a neutral flavor. This can be attributed to the fact that it is bottled in its purest form, leaving little room for impurities and contaminants to be reintroduced during preparation.
There is also the option to buy brands that are enhanced with flavoring agents. This offers a healthier option to sugary drinks.
Bottled water is available at almost every retail store, whether stocked on the shelves of grocery stores, in facility vending machines or micro markets, or in checkout aisle coolers.
This means that the consumer can go about their day as planned, knowing that once they run out of their current bottle, they will be able to easily get their hands on another.
In addition to the fact that water is the only zero-calorie, zero-additives option, it has an overwhelming list of health benefits to offer. Proper hydration is used to regulate body temperature, and maintain physical and cognitive functions.
In most cases, tap water is sufficient, but is that the standard we want to set when describing what nourishes us? Those with compromised immune systems should take extra precaution to ensure that their water is free of any contaminants, specifically Cryptosporidium.
The CDC recommends looking for water that has been treated with reverse osmosis, distillation, and filtration with an absolute 1 micron filter.
There are also fortified options that include nutrients such as electrolytes, B vitamins, and vitamin E. These are great options to help replenish minerals lost during a sweaty workout session.
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) recommends that everyone have water on hand in the event of an emergency. It can be seen first-hand how difficult acquiring water can be in the light of an impending emergency. Bottled water stores easily and has a long shelf-life, making it an ideal solution for emergency preparation.
Bottled water also makes it easy to determine how much each family member needs by dividing it up into smaller increments that are sanitary and ready for consumption. This takes the guesswork out of portioning.
