High-quality water is the pledge of your health!
It’s been widely known for centuries that water is the substance a living being can’t do without. We spend every day feeling this unbreakable bond with this amazing substance. Thousands of documentaries and feature movies have been made about the miraculous characteristics of water. Lots of publications in scientific and popular editions have been devoted to it. Moreover, world-old stories and legends tell us about “living or alive” and “dead” water that can heal the wounds and make you stronger as well as raise anyone from the dead.
It seems, we should just separate the fiction from everyday life and find the truth basing on the present knowledge. Still, it’s even harder for us to find the truth nowadays and refine it from the fruit of one’s imagination. The matter is that many specialists in lots of different spheres like chemistry, biology or medicine strongly advise us to drink only pure ice water (spring, melt, filtered or ionized water). And they all claim that only such water is extremely valuable for our health. So, what kind of water is really USEFUL? And what advice should we really listen to in order to feel the effect? Let’s study this problem.
Water and us: what is the relation?
No vitally important biochemical process in the human body can do without water. That’s obvious and logical as up to 80% of our body is water. Thus, without water in our body:
- The information exchange and communication would be impossible;
- The mineral (ion) metabolism would stop;
- All metabolic processes would stop;
- Full-fledged nutrients digestion and harmful substances excretion would stop.
These factors are enough to understand the vital importance and benefit of water for every human being. Our smart body can get the necessary volume of liquid for its functioning making its “owner” consume the amount of food and drink it considers necessary. Thus, the useful water is the one that is necessary to support the vital processes in our body.
As for the scientific basis of the water benefit, lots of new discoveries are made in this field every day and one can hardly follow all of them. The number of characteristics of “ideal” water grows at an exponential rate. We aren’t going to mention all of them; we’ll just specify the facts everyone knows that can help us estimate the benefits of water.
Well, there is a number of characteristics grouped for your convenience:
- 1.Physical and chemical profile.
- 2.Physical and chemical characteristics.
- 3.Energoinformational content.
It’s impossible to provide the full description of the influence of every component in the above-mentioned groups on the human body in one article. We’d like to specify the most essential factors:
- Biochemical purity;
- Hydrogen index;
- Mineral composition;
- Surface tension rate;
- Oxidation-reduction properties;
- Electrical conductivity.
The content of all kinds of microgerms and compositions in water is the topic for special discussion. Anyway, it would be OK for everyone to avoid the penetration of different foreign bacteria into our body. As for the water impurities, they can be of two kinds:
According to the undeniable medical data, the human impurities are the substances the human being needs for the life and vital processes. The extra-human impurities are the ones our body doesn’t need: they can be either useless or even dangerous for us.
Our body spends a lot of energy to get rid of this useless unnatural ballast. To preserve this energy for more important purposes, the water we drink must be free (or at least contain the minimum) of these substances. At the same time, the water should keep all the human substances during the water purification process. In other words, the water shouldn’t be “empty”: it won’t make any good. Even worse, it can do harm to you. The tap water standards are developed on the basis of this information. But the water-supply system can be different in different regions: e.g. the index for St.-Petersburg makes 80-150 mg/l and in Central Asia it can reach 2000 mg/l depending on the special characteristics of water in this or that region. It’s absolutely normal for the region inhabitants as their body adapts to the specific mineral composition. Still, it would be better if the balance were the same everywhere (the optimum mineral index for us is 200-500 mg/l).
Hydrogen index (acid-base balance)
This index means the balance of chemical reactions proceeding in every environment. Our body has its own pH level for every liquid but most of them like blood and other liquids are characterized with the weakly alkaline medium – pH>7.0. The tap water, as a rule, has the pH<7.0 level (weak acid medium). The neutral (purified) water has pH=7.0.
The abovementioned peculiarity of the liquids of the human body does not allow to overacidify from the inside. At the same time, the medium pH level should be 7.0-7.5 for the full-fledged control over the toxins. Thus, the weakly alkaline water would be the best variant for us to drink.
We have already mentioned it before: the water impurities should be human only.
Surface tension rate (flow rate)
The flow rate reflects the water viscosity: the lower it is the more optimized are the processes of the fluid penetration in the cells, vital and beneficial substances dilution and transportation to the necessary place in our body. Besides, the low viscosity allows to excrete the ballast outside the body. When consuming the tap water with the viscosity rate, that is half as high as the rate inside us, we make the body life much more complicated.
Oxidation-reduction properties (potential)
These are in fact the anti-oxidizing qualities of water. Everyone knows today that, when oxidizing, out body gets older. Antioxidants are the substances that can stop or at least slow down this process. Without doubt, they are produced in some amount independently but it would be better to make that amount bigger. So, why can’t we use the “good” water for that purpose?
The oxidation-reduction potential rate can be both positive and negative. That is related to the measuring method relativity. “0” is taken as a model and depending on ORP of this or that solution it can be either higher or lower than “0”. The index itself implies the power or energy that is necessary to separate the electron from the cell. The oxidizer ORP is really high due to the solution character: it “deprives” the cells of its electrons. And vice versa, reductants return these electrons and thus their ORP is really low and sometimes – negative.
The body fluid ORP for a healthy person is about 150-70 mWt. It’s quite clear that the water with the same potential will be beneficial for us. By the way, the ORP of the water from the municipal water-supply system is +150 +300 mWt.
Specific (electrical) conductivity
The human body can’t live without electrical processes. All the brain and nerve termination are passed here and there by means of electrical impulses. That’s why the body liquids must have a definite conductivity level. The signal transmission in the high-level conductivity fluids take much less energy. The regulation of the electrolytic fluid levels is quite normal for a healthy body but you can help it if you take the water with high conductivity level.
So, what water do we need?
No doubt, the human body by itself is an exceptionally harmonious and smart system able of self-control and self-regulation, self-healing and other “wonders” if a person is healthy of course. So, does it really matter what water we drink or our body can cope with its problems by itself? Does it make any sense to think so much about the water quality if we can generate the necessary amount of antioxidants and get rid of toxins all by ourselves?
Unfortunately, people hardly ever think about their health till they really get into trouble. We spend our potential uselessly on harmful habits, unhealthy diet and couch-potato life-style, we spend days and nights by the computer and finally make our body worn down quickly. To trust the Bible legends, we can live many hundreds of years. That might be not just wonderful fairytales but really truthful information about the real resources of our body! And that wouldn’t surprise anyone if we found out that the water these ancient long-livers used to drink met those optimum parameters mentioned above.
Scientists consider that the value of this USEFUL water can’t be overestimated. As its parameters are close to those of our intracellular fluids, it allows to spend our energy stores rationally and direct it at the most vital processes. But where shall we get this most BENEFICIAL water?
Our planet Earth granted lots of sources with unique water to its inhabitants it’s been known for a long time that people consuming water from such sources live much longer and hardly ever fall ill. But only some of us live by this natural wonder.
Our experts have managed to simulate and recreate the process of fine purification and conditioning of water in a laboratory enriching it with macro- and microelements, based on the processes occurring in the natural waters of The Republic of Karelia, Russia. Its lakes are known to have purest and softest water in the world. Such springs as “Martsialnye vody” (The first Russian healing resort was founded by Peter The Great at this spring) and “Tri Ivana” are well-known all over the world for the miracle-working properties of their groundwaters filtered with shungite deposits (To get to know more about healing properties of shungite water click here, and to learn how to prepare it click here). Our unique filters change the structure of tap water into a natural one giving it the properties of spring or healing water with the abovementioned indicators being at the recommended level and 99% of free radicals removed. Moreover, unlike most of modern water filters “Natural water” filters do not remove such components as magnesium and calcium salts that are essential for human health and the absence of which can lead to a number of diseases
Thus, natural mineral sorbents found in the Natural Water filter purify and condition tap water (adjust its salt composition). They improve water quality by removing impurities and reducing toxicity. Moreover, they increase water’s biological activity by enriching it with macro- and microelements. The effect of the techniques and cleaning technology using these natural mineral sorbents is similar or excels that of activated carbon, but they cost less. Using the filters, you can make USEFUL drinking water for your family and yourself.
We wish you live a long and healthy life!
