What’s So Bad About Bottled Water?
Bottled Water vs. Ionized Water | There is no Comparison!
In this article, I’ll explain why ionized water is a far better choice than bottled water.
Let’s start with ORP.
ORP stands for oxidation reduction potential: which is another way of saying anti-oxidant potential. On the bottom of this page is a chart that shows the ORP of 58 different kinds [brands or sources] of water. Of all the bottled waters the range of ORP is about +350 to +600 on the average. That means you are getting one heck of a lot of free radicals through your water. Note: tap and well water sources are also in this high range of ORP. If you look on the chart, at the “Jupiter Science Water” row, you’ll see that the ORP of ionized water using a water ionizer from Jupiter Science is up to -850 [and this will vary according to the source water used]. That’s an incredible difference! With a negative ORP of even -300 it is considered a medical grade of ORP. With this kind of negative ORP you can really antioxidize and get rid of the free radicals in your body!
Now let’s take a look at pH.
PH stands for potential Hydrogen. It is another way of saying how acidic or alkaline a substance is. Our bodies need a slightly alkaline pH [7.365 pH] for health, however this is very challenging for our bodies to do with our modern diets. Without the proper buffers for the alkalinity our bodies need, our bodies have no choice but to rob our joints and bones of calcium to buffer the poisonous acid wastes produced by our cells.
If you look at the pH of the bottled water in the above chart, you’ll see that there’s a wide range of pH in these waters. The lesser expensive water, such as Aquafina, is acidic [5.96 pH], and while some of the spring waters are alkaline, watch out! Because many of the spring waters are gotten from valley springs [which tend to be acidic]. If you need to drink bottled water, look at the lable and try to get the mountain spring water. Make sure the word “mountain” is in the description [otherwise surely it is NOT mountain spring water]. To really provide enough buffers for most modern day diets, I think people should drink water at a pH higher than 9 if possible. The only water on the chart that has a pH higher than 9 is the Jupiter water ionizer’s ionized water. And, that can get up to 11 pH!
Sometimes, it’s true, you do need to drink bottled water.
So here’s what I would do if I were going out of the country, and didn’t trust the water [or otherwise HAD to drink bottled water: I’d bring my Waterman Portable Water Ionizer [little 1-cup water ionizer that doesn’t use electricity] and pour mountain spring water into it. I think that would be the best and safest water for traveling into places where I didn’t trust the water. The Waterman Pitcher is so inexpensive and lasts for 800L [you can also refill the cartridge for another 800L for even cheaper], so I think this would be something that anyone could do!
Finally, last but not least, the amount of waste produced by all those bottles isn’t good for the environment.
Even if you recycle, there is a lot of energy waste and pollution caused by so much plastic. The statistics are: a lot of those bottles do not get recycled. Food for some green thought.
My background is in physiology, teaching, nutrition and weight loss. I have raised 5 children who are all grown now. I have a masters degree in education and was a teacher/principal for 24 years. I created Alkaline Water Plus in 2009 to educate people about the benefits of ionized water.
The very best thing I have ever purchased is a WATER IONIZER, and I've been in perfect health ever since I started drinking ionized water 25 years ago!
