The Alkaline Water Filter: Why We Need Them
The person who coined the phrase: “What you don’t know can’t hurt you” surely wasn’t from a medical or science background because if we were to apply that saying to the world of health it would be wrong in just about every conceivable way!
Certainly, not knowing about the dangers of tap water can lead to harm. The problem is too many of us are still blissfully unaware. And this is the reason why a water ionizer with an alkaline water filter in the home is a good idea – it will lead to better health and prolonged well-being. Here’s why.
Contaminated Water, Straight From Your Home Taps
I wouldn’t blame anyone not knowing that their tap water could be potentially contaminated. Why would you even question the safety of your water supply living in such a developed nation? But this is the problem. Most people think there’s nothing safer than going to the kitchen and pouring a glass of water to drink. We think that water safety regulations are surely strenuous enough to stop anything getting into our water supply. And we would be totally wrong.
Water supply pipes suffer from leaks, cracks, rust and joints. To combat this, a small amount of chlorine (that pungent chemical that gives swimming pools their smell) is added to our drinking water to act as a disinfectant. And whilst the chlorine in tap water kills bacteria, too much of it can make us ill. It can cause problems to our respiratory system, cause irritation to our eyes and skin, damage the mucous system in our nose and mouth, and trigger allergic reactions in certain individuals.
But that’s not the worst of it. Those American water safety regulations that we all assume are, excuse the pun; water tight, are a little too slack. As a consequence, millions of us each day are exposed to traces of harmful chemicals such as fluoride, benzene, lead, and bromate.
As a result of our contaminated water supply, it’s estimated that around 20 million people in the country get sick each year. If we want to avoid being part of this statistic, we need to find a solution. And an alkaline water filter is a great tool for the job.
An Alkaline Water Filter – The Best Tool to Guard Against Dirty Water
There are a number of options if you want to avoid drinking tap water. You could try buying bottled water. Not the most cost efficient, but bottled water is produced with filtered water at least. The big downside is that bottled water is often acidic (and the body needs the opposite; alkalinity) and has its own contaminants from the plastic that encases the water. So far from ideal.
Secondly, you could choose to filter your water through a distillation machine. These certainly give you clean water (too clean), but the downer is that the reverse osmosis process these machines use to clean water actually takes the good minerals out of water, meaning it’s acidic too. So that rules that out.
The best option, then, is something that doesn’t produce acidic water. Which is an ionizer machine with alkaline water filters.
Clean Antioxidant Water from an Alkaline Water Filter
An alkaline water filter on a top ionizer machine (like the Genesis and Revelation 2 models) takes your tap water and filters it through complex, multi-stage activated carbon filters, often containing tourmaline and coral calcium. The best ionizer filters are replaceable so that you can maintain their effectiveness over long periods.
An ionizer alkaline water filter is guaranteed to take all the nasties out of the water so you are left with clean alkaline H2O. But the water an ionizer produces is not just clean. It is healthy, antioxidant-packed drinking water as these machines put the tap water through an electrolysis process too. This special process promotes the growth of nourishing minerals in the water which is full of free-radical destroying antioxidants.
So now that you know the ionizer alkaline water filter is the best method to protect against dirty tap water, it can’t harm you.
