Fresh Filtered Water on Tap

Can filtered water heal your gut?

Your gut is important.

It dictates your overall health and keeps everything running smoothly.

So it’s no surprise that an unhealthy gut can cause total havoc!

We discuss what gut health means and how a home water purifier like WFA’s systems can change your gut health for the better.

So, what exactly is a ‘gut’?

What is a Gut

Your gastrointestinal tract (G.I.) is your gut. It starts at the your mouth and ends, well, at your bottom.

It’s important. And it keeps itself pretty busy.

Your gut transports food from your mouth to your stomach, converts it into absorbable nutrients and energy and then pushes all the waste out of your body. It hosts a bacterial flora – trillions’ worth! – to keep everything running smoothly.

Once that flora is disrupted, that’s when things can go awry.

An unbalanced gut can lead to things like stomach upsets, skin irritations, chronic fatigue, impraired immunity, food intolerances, sleep disturbances and even disease.

What leads to a ‘bad gut’?

What leads to a ‘bad gut’

An insufficient diet, poor lifestyle choices, chemicals and toxins, and even a course of antibiotics can lead to an upset gut.

One of the biggest interrupters of your gut is the multitude of nasties that are often found in tap water.

It’s a fact – our water is treated with a stack of chemicals in order to kill dangerous microorganisms that can cause disease. Even the pipes that our water travels through can cause problems.

We’re talking things like chlorine, pesticides, trihalomethanes such as chloroform and heavy metals like lead and mercury.

Does it really matter?

Chemically-treated water


It goes beyond the odd glass of tap water or two.

Think about all the other ways we get in contact with chemically-treated water: bathing, cooking, rinsing fruit and veg, a hot cup of tea…

It all adds up.

And all those chemicals can have a massive impact on your gut flora. Especially chlorine.

Chlorine is a major player when it comes to an unhappy gut. It’s used as a super strong disinfectant to kill bacteria that can cause the body problems.

Think about it: if you’re drinking water with a strong disinfectant to kill bacteria – it’s going to cause havoc on the good bacteria in your gut.

How can filtered water help?

How can filtered water help

Staying hydrated with filtered water is one of the best (and easiest!) ways to keep up the balance of good bacteria in the gut. In fact, it’s considered to be the foundation of good gut health.

A good home water purifier like the ones from WFA help to keep everything in check.

Water Filters Australia water filtration systems filter out all the nasties which means you’re getting pure water that’s good for you and your gut. And because it tastes so good, you’ll be drinking more of it.

A hydrated body equals a happy, healthy gut and a happy, healthy you!


Make sure the family stays hydrated during the warmer months by infusing a jug of filtered water with fruit or fruit-flavoured teabags. It’s a refreshing, sweet treat that will guarantee the kids coming back for more!
