The "Natural Water" Shungite Filters
The "Natural Water" Shungite Filters
The "Natural Water" filter has been designed to make high quality drinking water rich in such minerals as magnesium and calcium. The components of this filter change the structure of tap water into a natural one. As a result, your water obtains the properties of spring or healing water.
Why is tap water bad for your health?
If you live in a city, big or small, tap water is probably bad for your health, because the water purification technology used by water supply plants was designed for once pure lakes, rivers and aquifers. Water treatment plants found in cities treat water with chlorine (for disinfection) and aluminum sulfate (for coagulation). Reacting with water’s organic substances, chlorine forms highly toxic chlororganic substances, while aluminum salts have a neurotoxic effect. Chlorinated water causes corrosion in low quality water system pipes. As a result, the concentration of iron salts found in tap water that we use in our homes exceeds maximum permitted levels.
Regular water filters
Water filtering systems can be a solution. A number of water treatment techniques have been designed, including activated carbon filtering, ion-exchange resin filtering, ion-exchange membrane filtering, electrodialysis, osmosis, and more. While most water filters retain toxicants (some more, some less), they also remove such components as magnesium and calcium salts that are essential for human health. But most importantly, water filters remove microelements inherent in natural water. The water ceases to be biologically active, and you drink pure but “artificial” water.
Filtered water that is good for your health
Natural Water filters remove all organic substances (including oil products and pesticides), many metals and nonmetals, bacteria and microorganisms from water. With a Natural Water filter, you can get pure, biologically active water that is good for your health. The water treatment technique used in Natural Water filters is similar to natural water filtration as it occurs in Lake Onega – a lake with the purest and softest water in the world. The exceptional quality of its water can be explained by the fact that there are shungite deposits on the bottom of this unique ancient lake. “Martsialnye vody” and “Tri Ivana” springs are well-known all over the world for their miracle-working properties obtained because the groundwater is filtered with shungite.
Our experts have managed to simulate and recreate the process of fine purification and conditioning of water in a laboratory, based on the processes occurring in the natural therapeutic waters of Karelia. It has been determined that Karelia waters are formed on a certain complex of geological materials, its two major components being carbonate rock with a specific composition and carbon-bearing Karelia shungite.
How did we manage to recreate this water filtering technique?
Shungite water, dolomite and quartz sand are purifying and conditioning materials. They are subject to chemical and heat treatment. This allows us to improve these sorbents’ filtering properties greatly.
The water passes through three cartridges with filtering media. The first one contains shungite media. This is where oxidation of organic and chlororganic substances, partial absorption of heavy metals, water disinfection and acidification with shungite to a pH of about 5.5 occur.
After that, the acidic water passes through dolomite. Partially dissolving, it enriches the water with calcium, magnesium and other microelements. Also, the water is neutralized up to a pH of 7-7.5. As a result, iron and aluminum hydroxide sediments capture heavy metals and radionuclides.
Then, the water passes through layers of sand that detains iron and aluminum hydroxides allowing the water to restore its natural structure.
The advantages of the Natural Water filter
Below are the main advantages of our Natural Water filter as compared with other water treatment systems:

The effect of Natural Water filters on distilled water
The results of enriching distilled water (see Table 1) confirm that it’s possible to adjust the macro- and microelement composition of purified water by changing the percentage ratio of the layers of filtering media (or by changing the filtration time).
Drinking water low in calcium and magnesium ions has been proven to lead to a number of diseases. For instance, people who drink soft water often, suffer from high blood pressure, ischemia, osteochondrosis, osteoporosis, caries, and allergies.
Compositional changes have been detected in tap water after it passed through a Natural Water filter. Thus, the filter has improved its organoleptic properties. In particular, its odor and taste have been adjusted to comply with the water sanitation regulations.
The iron concentration has been reduced by 950% to a level that is in compliance with the water sanitation regulations, as well.
Moreover, the concentration of heavy metals and organic contaminants has been reduced significantly. The filtering has increased the water’s pH, concentration of calcium, magnesium, silicon and hydrocarbonate ions, as well as hardness and dry residue. This should be regarded as a positive effect because tap water in Saint Petersburg is known to be low in the above elements and salts, and is excessively soft.
It’s generally known that water has better calcium bioavailability than dairy products. Calcium-rich water is especially important for people with a digestive enzyme deficiency.
Silicon is essential for any living creature. It stimulates collagen biosynthesis and bone tissue formation and calcification. Moreover, silicon participates in phosphorus metabolism and lipidic exchange, having a significant effect on calcium levels in the body. The recommended daily intake of silicon is 20-30 mg/l. Those who consume less than that are more likely to have lymphatic system disorders, rickets or cancer.
All of the above elements get into your water from the natural minerals contained in our Natural Water filters. Flint is a source of silicon, while glauconitic limestone enriches water with calcium and magnesium. Also, silicon and glauconitic limestone increase water’s pH to the levels that are in compliance with the water sanitation regulations (neutralizing the water’s acidity raised by shungite).
Tap water quality indicators before and after using a Natural Water filter
Thus, these 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. Check the price for this filter.
