STEP 1: Carbon filter is used for reducing taste, odors, and dissolved organic chemicals and removing
chlorine from chlorinated water supplies.
STEP 2: Water softenerremoves hardness minerals: arsenic, fluoride, selenium, silica..
STEP 3: 5-10 Micron Pre-Filter – removes particles, sediments, and
STEP 4: Reverse Osmosis Membrane – water is forced through a semi
permeable, .0002 micron membrane, allowing only pure water molecules to pass.
STEP 5: Storage – water is stored in FDA approved tanks. OZONE be
added to water storage tanks to prevent future bacterial growth.
STEP 6: Alkaline Filtration. We do not use electrolysis to raise the PH of water. We use a natural approach by infusing alkaline minerals into the water
STEP 7: Post Carbon Filtration to remove odors
STEP 8: Ultraviolet Sterilizer –eliminates up to 99.9% of all
Most of the popular alkaline water ionizers sold today use electrolysis technology to separate the water.
You may have heard various health claims about alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?
The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.
Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body.
Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9. However, pH alone isn’t enough to impart substantial alkalinity to water.
Alkaline water must also contain alkaline minerals and negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). ORP is the ability of water to act as a pro- or antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more antioxidizing it is.
Alkaline water is somewhat controversial. Many health professionals say there isn’t enough research to support the many health claims made by users and sellers. Differences in research findings may be related to the types of alkaline water studies.
For example, a 2012 studyTrusted Source
found that drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux
A more recent study
that included 100 people found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels.
Those who consumed high-pH water reduced viscosity by 6.3 percent compared to 3.36 percent with standard purified drinking water. This means blood flowed more efficiently with alkaline water. This can increase oxygen delivery throughout out the body.
However, more research is needed beyond these small studies. In particular, research is needed to answer other claims made by alkaline water supporters.
They also argue that soft drinks, which are notoriously acidic, have very positive ORPs leading to many health problems, while properly ionized and alkalinized waters have highly negative ORPs.
