How toxic is your tap water???

July 15, 2020 PowerTea Management

When you turn on your tap you would expect that the water coming out is safe to drink. Even though most of the water provided to the public meets national safety standards, treated water, when rigorously tested very often still contains dangerous toxins that can adversely affect the health of you and your family. Unfiltered water puts an unnecessary burden on your body to detoxify these chemicals. The best protection is a high quality, high-flow water filter that purifies both your bathing water and drinking water and supplies your whole home. Most people are completely unaware that their bathing water is far more dangerous than their drinking...

June 22, 2016 PowerTea Management

Getting through the day can be hard enough even without having to plan three meals for ourselves. So why do we eat three meals a day anyways?

Can You Build Muscle from Walking?

June 03, 2016 PowerTea Management

You’d rather be building a six-pack than drinking one, but you can’t seem to muster the energy to do more than lift your hand from the pack of chips to your mouth after a long day’s work. You need to exercise, but it feels like if you’re not pushing your body hard, then there’s no point. That kind of all-or-none thinking is a mistake. You don’t need to try and become a professional bodybuilder to build muscle. In fact, something as gentle and simple as walking can certainly build healthy muscle (I’d also like to mention that it’s free!).  Will you...
