What's In Our Water?
PUR2o’s Alkaline Plus Drinking Water System provides water straight from your tap that is Filtered, Purified and then Re-Mineralized – adding Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium with added Molecular Hydrogen making it high in Oxygen, as well as Antioxidant and enhanced with Electrolytes.
In a nutshell… we provide Healthy Alkaline Water!
Filtration is a physical process where particles are separated from a suspension. In terms of water, filtration can come in various forms to filter particles of various sizes. During our filtration process we remove large particles such as soil, sand, dirt, and heavy metals as well as smaller particles that you cannot see with the naked eye, such as parasites, bacteria and chemicals.
Purified Water is water that has gone through the process of “Purification”. This means that it has been either filtered or gone through a process to remove all the "good stuff” and “bad stuff” in it, so it has a TDS reading of Zero. After Filtration, our Alkaline Plus System Purifies the water using Reverse Osmosis, ensuring the water is as clean as possible before it heads to the Re-mineralizing stage.
PUR2o naturally Ionizes water using high quality natural essential minerals, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium, not through Electrolysis. When water makes contact with Magnesium the natural reaction that occurs releases Oxygen and Hydrogen, therefore Ionizing, Oxygenating and Hydrogenating the water. When water molecules are ionized, they can be absorbed faster and better by the cells in our body. In the case of drinking PUR2o water, you are absorbing your essential nutrients.
The pH of water measures how Acidic or Alkaline the water is. pH stands for potential of Hydrogen – measuring the amount of free hydrogen in a substance. pH also identifies ORP – Oxygen Reduction Potential – where the more Acidic a substance is, the less Oxygen it has, and the more Alkaline the substance is the more Oxygen it has. As a basic rule, virus cells and disease cells HATE an Oxygen rich Alkaline environment, and thrive in Acidic, low Oxygen surroundings. PUR2o water measures Alkaline, usually falling somewhere between 9 & 9.5 pH. But be informed; not all Alkaline Water is Equal...
Ionized water benefits go hand in hand with many of the other points we are discussing, such as Alkalinity and Hydrogen. But when water is Ionized it "hangs out" in smaller clusters, which for our body makes it easier to absorb into cells, muscle tissue and vital organs, including our brain and skin. Basically, you get hydrated faster and better. Ionized water also helps your body detox better, getting rid of unwanted toxins in your cells including fatty acids and heavy metals.
Anti-oxidants in water neutralize the ability of free radicals to cause damage to our cells. Free radicals damage our cells by stealing electrons. The hydroxyl ions present in PUR2o ionized water are the anti-oxidants, which give electrons to the free radicals, so that they do not steal from our body.
Electrolytes are water soluble minerals that carry an electric charge. In our case PUR2o water provides electrolytes through Ionized Potassium. Potassium’s job in the body is to help keep your cells clean by removing waste, and healthy by allowing nutrients in to your cells. When you drink water such as distilled water that has no electrolytes, the body takes electrolytes from itself and adds them to the water to aid in the digestion, ultimately diluting the electrolytes in the body. Lack of electrolytes in the body can be linked to medical symptoms such as tiredness, weakness, headache, muscular cramps and impaired heart rate.
Hydrogenated water becomes a powerful antioxidant, helping to prevent oxidization and cell damage throughout the body. Oxidative stress on your body is linked to the main causes for cancer, dementia, other neurological conditions as well as cell aging. Hydrogenated water will help your body combat oxidization of cells and support your body to be functioning optimally and in the healthiest way.
Calcium is the most abundant element in the body and is a friend to other minerals and elements, supporting them in stimulating the body functions such as bone and tooth growth, cell rejuvenation and life cycles, nerve impulses, muscle contractions as well as blood clotting.
Aside from helping to provide the sweet taste in our water, Magnesium is one of our body's heroes! It helps keep your muscles, nerves and bones healthy, supports the heart, and helps manage auto immune conditions such as diabetes and osteoporosis. It also supports a healthy digestion, and helps calcium absorption.
Potassium 's number one role is to balance electrolytes and fluids within the body. It reduces blood pressure, and reduces water retention, supports stress levels and reduces anxiety, it also regulates nerve signals and muscle contractions, and last but not least, it is vital to neural function... meaning that all important brain power!
Aside from all the health benefits of Alkaline Water, you save a tremendous amount of money with our on demand at home drinking systems!
Did you know?….If you drink eight glasses of water each day, it will cost approximately $55 per year; vs $1,700 if you were to drink the same amount of bottled water instead. The PUR2o system pays for itself in only one year by one person’s recommended daily water consumption... and it's straight from a dedicated faucet in your kitchen.
Say No To Plastic
Okay... so we know that these last two are not what is "in" our water... but it is in us as a company... an important part of our mission is to help eliminate plastic bottles from polluting our planet and our bodies by providing the best water out of your tap and reducing the amount of plastic we dispose of. This has been estimated as more than 1500 bottles per second in the United States, and 50 billion bottles globally each year.
