Great Water for Great Smiles

Louisville Pure Tap® contains small amounts of fluoride, or as we like to call it, “Nature’s  cavity fighter!”  Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens your bones and teeth. Fluoride is not found in most bottled water and other beverages. Drinking Pure Tap throughout the day is an easy way to protect your tooth enamel and prevent painful cavities.

Water is also acts as a great ‘mouth cleaner.’ Unlike sugary drinks, drinking Pure Tap after a meal helps to wash away the leftover food and residue that cavity-causing bacteria love to eat. It’s a healthy choice for your body and your smile.

Don’t forget, water also plays a critical role in proper toothbrushing. Pure Tap and toothpaste are the perfect pair for a healthy smile!

Hydrating for Happiness?

Mental health is an important part of our overall wellbeing, but it can be difficult to maintain, especially during life’s more challenging moments. You may be surprised to learn that one simple thing — staying hydrated — can make a big impact on your mental health! Even mild dehydration can impact how we think and feel.

“Staying hydrated allows you to feel more focused, calmer, and clearer. It helps with managing mood, making decisions, and staying healthy overall,” says Ashley Cramer, Clinical Director of the Kentucky Counseling Center. “Proper hydration, exercise, and good sleeping habits are the building blocks of a healthy mind. Building hydration into your coping skills toolbox is an easy, yet effective way to combat mood instability.”

Try drinking a glass of Pure Tap first thing in the morning to help wake your brain up, or reach for a glass when you’re feeling stressed throughout the day. Water may not be able to wash all your troubles away, but the great taste of Pure Tap is sure to make you smile!
