Did you know? Coffee is the favourite beverage of the Germans. On average, each German drinks 165 litres of coffee per year. The beans are varied, as are the preparation methods. Anyone who values a fine aroma and full-bodied taste should, in addition to the correct beans, pay particular attention to one thing: the ideal water for coffee.
Up to the lakes, down to the sea!
Whatever the time of year, after a hard week at work everyone wants to take it easy, recharge the batteries and chill out. And days out in natural surroundings are a popular choice. Most people wanting a break head for the coast, rivers, reservoirs and lakes. And for good reason! Being near water has a relaxing effect on us. We breathe in the fresh air, listen to the ripples, and enjoy the sight of this powerful element. And we find a sip of cool water particularly refreshing.
More than just a thirst-quencher
Glacier water from Norway - super-pure, oxygen-rich water from Iceland. Water of volcanic origin from the Fiji Islands. Products like these are advertised heavily in the marketplace, and set new trends. Drinking water, these days, means more than just quenching a thirst - drinking water is a cult. However, it does not always need to be the unusual, distant sources that give us health and energy. Home tap water, enriched with a SecoSan Stick, is far cheaper...
Get well soon - thanks to water!
Coughs, sniffs, fever. Whenever it gets really cold and horrible outside, many people suffer from colds. When people have coughs and colds, many doctors recommend expectorants. If the cough is irritating, they prescribe cough suppressants. Your doctor will advise you on whether to take medication and which type. But the most important piece of advice from any doctor is always the same – drink plenty of water! Unsweetened tea or fresh water then becomes the best medicine.
Take it easy!
Don't drink coffee, don't eat unpasteurised milk products, avoid spicy dishes, don't lift heavy objects. Pregnant women get to hear a whole series of recommendations. Many of them come from the doctor and are well-considered, but you can often get around decisions like these. For example, the issue of carrying water containers around. Enjoy fresh, healthy water – straight from your tap. And it will do you good.
Child's healthy sleep
Your child's night-time rest is sometimes disturbed when they wake up thirsty. This is often the case if the child has a fever, or has been over-excited, or if their room is over-heated. In any case, you should provide your child with enough water so that they can drink and get all the water they need. You can prepare for night-time drinks by setting up a water station in the child's bedroom so that there is a constant supply of SecoSan water within reach.
Hot teas, hot trends
In autumn and winter we enjoy being very comfortable and harmonious. Even a large dose of romance is desirable. On cold, rainy winter evenings you can bring this cosy atmosphere right into your living room – with a cuddly blanket on the settee and a pot of hot tea on the coffee table.
Hot and lively
An evening cocktail is always great when starting the weekend or meeting friends. Sociable, merry, lively – That's the ideal lead-in to a fun-filled party evening. But when it's cold outside, the palate is often hoping for a hot drink. And if a hot toddy is just a little too routine for you, why not try out this recipe – a hot Caipirinha! Not only will it warm you up, the lime's vitamin injection refreshes and invigorates at the same time...
Luxury and well-being
The home bathroom is becoming ever more significant. Hardly anyone these days wants to be without a rain shower, nice accessories, pretty soaps and pretty jars of cream as decoration. And furthermore, luxury well-being spas are all the fashion. For the average German, having the greatest possible comfort in the bathroom is increasingly the norm. And, in this respect, everything revolves around the element that is water.
Source of harmony
Water gives us energy and strength, and provides balance and harmony. This was known by ancient Chinese philosophers, who combined wind and water to design the theory of harmony known as Feng Shui. Water is and always has been the elixir of life and the source of harmony and strength for all healthy and nature-loving people.
One glass too many? Water will help!
Alcohol removes water from the body. In addition, salts are secreted in greater quantities. So, if you have had one too many on a Christmas outing, on New Year's Eve or at a birthday party, one thing in particular will help counteract headaches the next day - drinking plenty of water and consciously takingion salts. You will always have refreshing, pure water to hand if you get in a water supply with a SecoSan Stick.
Seasonal, regional – delicious!
Why dream of distant places? The home is where the heart is... This also applies to food which should nourish us daily - but also taste good. A traditional vegetable which is often overlooked is the beetroot. But it is particularly healthy, providing a great deal of vitamin B, iron and folic acid. This aromatic root vegetable is a classic winter vegetable. Beetroot is best bought fresh from regional producers...
A warming soup is particularly ideal after a winter's walk in the icy cold. And strong, exotic spices are an excellent way of reviving your spirits. But an exotic soup is also a welcome warm-up when you are dining with friends. Why not try an Asiatic coconut curry soup with delicious spices – prepared fresh, naturally, with the best SecoSan water.
Quiet, relaxation, well-being: the gentle tinkling of water improves the atmosphere in a room. So more and more people are opting for an indoor fountain. But all the relaxation is quickly forgotten the first time that you come to clean it. Anyone using normal water will quickly need to deal with limescale deposits and algae. A SecoSan Stick in the water will keep your indoor fountain fresh for ages and save you lots of time.
Refreshing & frosty
A tasty dessert is a must-have after a nice meal. And, since it is the norm to feast on the main course, not every palate is up for a heavy, creamy dessert or a warm, bready dish. Yet there will always be a little room for a morsel that is light, refreshing and tangy. If you want to be good to yourself and your guests after a nutritious or hearty meal, and would like to surprise them with a refreshing, frosty little sorbet?
Salt is millions of years old. Nonetheless, the packs that we buy from the supermarket indicate a best-before date. Isn't that a little strange? It's a similar case with water. Bottles of mineral water also indicate best-before dates. Yet natural mineral waters come from subterranean sources which are protected from impurities. However, groceries have to have a best-before date on the label. The law makes this mandatory. But, as experts assure us, water can be kept for an almost unlimited period.
Storm tides, springs and mermaids
The world of literature can be so light, bright and romantic. And water is so pure, invigorating and refreshing. The two subjects have often been brought together in literature. Because water has always played a prominent role in people's lives.
Precious for body and soul
With many yoga exercises - according to the teachings - we immerse ourselves into the five elements – including water. The motto is "Enjoy the flow of life". Optimally support yourself when recharging with positive energy and power in this way, and drink pure and clean water every day!
Water for an ideal indoor climate
The fire is crackling cosily in the fireplace. The leaping flames are relaxing, and give off a languorous warmth. Whenever the temperature falls, many people turn to their fireplace to give their house that special homey feeling. But the magic of the fireplace will quickly deflate you if you fail to humidify the air. Because your eyes will begin to smart and your mucous membranes will become irritated. By placing a bowl of water on the fire, you will always enjoy the ideal indoor climate.
Get yourself a filter! When it comes to coffees, trends are now reverting back to handicraft. All you need is a porcelain hand filter, a kettle with a temperature display and a coffee grinder. Correct roasting and fresh water ensure perfect coffee.
The power of water
What did the ancient Greeks have in common with us? They too placed great value in pure, clear water. They worshipped the sea god Poseidon, as well as several river gods and water nymphs. After all, water has always been considered as the source of all life.
Water makes you beautiful!
More and more prominent contemporaries are swearing by the beautifying power of water and investing vast sums in mineral water so that they can do something good for their skin from the inside as well as from the outside. Not necessary! Fresh tap water contributes just as well to the outer beauty of people, and when served correctly is just as refreshing as mineral water – if not more!
What thirst has to do with intelligence? A lot. We need up to three liters of water a day for full concentration and fresh ideas. If our body does not get enough liquid, it sounds the alarm immediately and warns us that we are thirsty. A clever system.
Lassie loves me!
Clean water is not only good for us humans. Animals get thirsty too and only deserve the purest refreshment. It only takes a few hours for germs to settle in water dishes. This makes it all the more important to keep the water in it germ-free from the outset.
Soups as fresh as the autumn
Autumn has a lot to offer – including super fresh vegetables direct from your local farms. Use pumpkin, cauliflower and cabbage - tasty and healthy! These nourishing vegetables taste particularly good if you make soup from them. Trendy autumn soups taste even better if they are made with fresh and pure water. Try it for yourself!
Drinking water, eating water
We all know that drinking supplies our body with all the water essential for our survival. The water content we need on a daily basis can be supported by a suitable selection of food. There is food with a higher water content but also food with a lower water content. We will show you how you can very easily "eat" water.
Drinking, the fundamental element
More and more people suffer from gluten intolerance. And they have to struggle with it. Their diet must be completely readjusted. Foods containing rye, wheat, barley, oats or spelt are taboo, and the only treatment is an appropriate diet and drinking plenty of healthy water.
Water – and (almost) nothing else
Less is sometimes more. This motto also applies to our skin care, above all our facial skin. Give your pores a break from lotions and cleaning masks and pamper your skin with warm, clear water. This beauty programme is supported by drinking pure water.
Humans comprise up to 70 % pure water. The large amount of liquid in our body ensures that it stays fit and healthy: it keeps us warm, cools us down, transports nutrients to the organs and oxygen to the brain – for a whole lifetime.
Hydrogen and oxygen are an exciting combination. What results is pure water, which in nature is sometimes liquid, sometimes solid and sometimes gas. Two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen – so versatile but still always pure water.
Happy Birthday – for all!
At a children's birthday party, it is all about sweets: There's cake, gummi bears and chocolate marshmallows. So much sugar and a high-spirited atmosphere makes the little party guests very hyper. Even though it is not scientifically proven that high sugar consumption causes hyperactivity in children - it is by no means healthy! So at the very least leave out the sweet drinks such as lemonade and syrup mixtures - for the sake of the little ones and their parents.
Category: "Health" Happy Birthday – for all!
Why do cats prefer to drink pure running water instead of from a bowl? It's simple! Cats have particularly sensitive senses and reject any water that is stale or even contaminated. They know: "Running water is clean and healthy for me." Therefore go ahead and give your cat a drinking fountain and make sure that this only provides pure and clean water.
Equipped on the way.
Why does thirst give an outing a boost? It's simple: if you are thirsty, you drink a lot. And fluids give the body energy. Provide your children with a healthy source of energy on the go.

Cocktails - pure enjoyment!
Cocktails are loved by everyone and sweeten many an evening on weekends. Whether it is tangy-fruity, seductively sweet or strong and dry. All good cocktails stand or fall with whether or not they are made with just the right amount of ice. Make sure that you have a sufficient quantity of ice cubes in your home bar. But they need to be fresh!
Fit for the journey
Do you prefer go on holiday by car? Even if the destination is worth it – the travel time often seems endless. To stop the journey becoming a nightmare, you need to stay fit and attentive behind the wheel. But how do you manage that over hundreds of miles, in a stuffy car and, if you're very unlucky, with multiple traffic jams? With vitamins, fitness and plenty of healthy water.
Every person spends four months of every year asleep. Many people are not aware of this fact. That's why it is so important for us to sleep peacefully and continuously. But bad eating habits and stress often lead to nightmares that give us restless or even sleepless nights. Before resorting to medication in such a situation, you should try a healthy household remedy: Drinking water!
