Systems to alkalize and ionize water
What advantages does the Alkanatur Drops pitcher offer compared to other pitchers in the market?
*Alkanatur is the only company that invests the most within their category in scientific studies that demonstrate the health benefits of our water.
*The Alkanatur Drops jug/pitcher is the only jug designed and manufactured in Spain.
*It is also the only one that has scientific studies that demonstrate its properties, with the most alkaline pH level, reaching up to 9.5 and rich in magnesium with 18 milligrams per liter.
*It is the only filter free of toxics emitted by plastic and that it doesn’t use ion exchange resin in its filter. What is ion exchange resin? Below we tell you more!
Alkalization systems and ion exchange resin
Most conventional water purification pitchers and water purification systems use ion exchange resin within their filters.
The main function of these resins is to lower the hardness of the water by exchanging (removing) magnesium and calcium ions for others such as sodium (most common) or potassium.
The chemical composition of these resins is divinylbenzene (a mixture of benzene and styrene).
Different scientific research associate these chemical materials with damage to the immune system, various types of cancer, arrhythmias, asthma, alterations in vision, female infertility, and so on.
The importance of pH and ORP
To help prevent imbalances such as acidosis and oxidation, alkalizing and ionizing water is a good way to help our bodies *.
The ideal pH value is between 6.5 and 7.25 for urine. And between 7 and 7.5 for saliva.
To measure the pH we have two ways: through urine or saliva, always fasting and the ideal is to do it two or three days in a row and take the average.
For many integrative physicians and therapists, this value is of vital importance to help us improve and prevent many diseases.
You can measure the pH of your body through our test strips.
On the other hand, a study carried out by the University of Vigo shows that in some diseases (type 1 diabetes) the antioxidant capacity of our Alkanatur water reduces oxidative stress (free radicals) in an amazing way.
In the video below, molecular biologist Rosa Monís demonstrates the very high antioxidant capacity with a value of -360 ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential in English) of the Alkanatur Drops pitcher.
There are multiple brands in the market established for a long time in our country that purify water.
These pitchers do not have any type of certification on endocrine disruptors emitted by plastics. Endocrine disruptors are chemical substances outside the body that are capable of altering the hormonal balance of the body.
And not only that, these pitchers offer very acid values in the waters they filter.
In existing studies, the pH levels of various jugs were 5.77 and the law in Europe indicates that the minimum is 6.5.
In addition, they emit chlorides and their antioxidant capacity is zero. You can see it here. The water filtered by these pitchers does not have any antioxidant capacity.
Pitcher made in China
The pitcher shown in the photo is the most popular model on the market. The study carried out at the ICG (Instituto de Cerámica de Galicia belonging to the University of Santiago de Compostela) specifically analyzes the filters of this pitcher.
This analysis shows that the filter of this model emits very harmful substances into the water.
Another analysis carried out with the Food Safety Service (CACTI) belonging to the University of Vigo, shows that this model emits 3 times more sodium than tap water (excess sodium is linked with many health problems).
Regarding the plastic of this pitcher, the manufacturer certifies that it is free of BPA, but they do not certify that it does not contain other endocrine disruptors that plastics release equal to or more dangerous than Bisphenol A.
Pitcher made in Korea
This pitcher of Korean origin, after having been analyzed by the Food Safety and Sustainable Development Service belonging to the University of Vigo that you can see here, gives results that triple the recommended values (0.1 – 10) by the ISO regulations 14911.
The emission values of chlorides (16 mg / l) and sodium (31 mg / l) are very high. To put it in context, tap water has a pre-filter value of 8.3 mg / L for chlorides and 7 mg / L for sodium.
Therefore, this pitcher significantly increases the sodium values in the water. That is, add salt to the water.
The WHO recommends a maximum of 5 grams of salt per day to avoid all the risks associated with its excessive consumption. If you want to know more about the dangers of sodium, you can watch the video of Dr. Marti Bosch.
Regarding the amount of magnesium, contrary to what is advertised, its contribution is poor: 4.6 mg / L demonstrable in the study we carried out. Tap water contains 2.6 mg / l.
Finally, regarding the plastic of this pitcher, the manufacturer certifies that it is free of BPA but like the Chinese jug, they do not certify that it does not contain other endocrine disruptors released by its plastics equal to or more dangerous than Bisphenol A (BPA).
More systems to alkalize and ionize water
There are several ways to alkalize and ionize water. You can do it yourself or through various systems. From Alkanatur we want to present you in the following infographic several formats to be able to do it. Now, it all depends on you.
