Bottled Alkaline Water isn’t the Same as Alkaline Ionized Water

With the popularity of ionized alkaline water soaring to new heights, many people have begun replacing their


Bottled alkaline water isn’t an antioxidant and it may be toxic

normal drinking water with ionized alkaline mineral water. At the market, people can purchase bottled alkaline water, which is very expansive, and it’s not an antioxidant. Most people don’t know that bottled water bought from the market is not the same kind of alkaline water that is made by a water ionizer. It does not provide the same antioxidant benefits as ionized alkaline water does. Worse than that, bottled alkaline water often contains toxic compounds from the plastic bottle it comes in. Consider these facts related to bottled water:

Bottled Alkaline Water may be Toxic

Before water is put in the bottle at a bottling plant, it is purified as best they can. Most frequently by reverse osmosis – which removes all the minerals from the water. That’s a problem, because water that lacks minerals will work to dissolve whatever it touches, including plastic! As soon as it enters the bottle, it begins absorbing chemicals from the plastic. Heat and light make it worse. If the bottle is exposed to sunlight, the rate of chemical absorption increases. For that reason, pregnant women should never drink water from a bottle that has been left inside a hot car!

Once bottled water is delivered to the store, it is stored on the shelves or at the back of the store. This increases the chance for chemical contamination (Wagner, 2013). The plastic used to manufacture the bottle is derived from petrochemicals, byproducts of the petroleum industry. When you drink bottled alkaline water, you are not just drinking water, you are drinking the chemicals infused with the water as well (Yang et al., 2007).


Why Life Ionizers is the best choice for water purity

A Life Ionizer makes better water. It protects you from the chemicals in bottled water and saves you money.  Life Ionizers has the best filtration of all water ionizers on the market today. Life Ionizers pulls your Federal Water Report, analyzes it, then customizes your system to ensure your water is purified of toxins.  Life is the only ionizer that comes with free custom filtration that is set up specifically for the toxins found in your water source.

Water Ionizers Save Money

You will save a lot of money in the long run by buying a water ionizer instead of a bottle of alkaline water. A water ionizer will be a onetime purchase while buying bottled alkaline  water will be an ongoing expense. With a water ionizer, you will save money and provide your family with safe, healthy drinking water. If you continue to buy regular bottled water, you are putting yourself in harm’s way.

Did you know that nearly half of all bottled water is just tap water? All this time, you were thinking that you were drinking a purified form of water. Worse yet, a study on tap water conducted by NRDC in 2009 stated that at least a third of the 103 brands tested contained chemical and bacterial contaminants. The levels detected cross the limit set by the industry and state (NRDC, 2009). If you are looking for a safe alternative, consider making your water at home. It’s safer and will save you a lot of money.

Indirectly Benefit the Environment

Why do people buy bottled water? Bottled water can be purchased easily and you can drink it on the go. The problem is that plastic bottles create a lot of waste. You can have the same convenience by making ionized alkaline drinking water at home. Then put it in one of Life’s stainless steel 750 ml bottles which preserve the pH and the ORP of the water.  Life also has reusable 2.2 liter and 1 gallon BPA-free plastic bottles. In the United States, six out of seven bottles are not recycled. The toxins from these plastic bottles seep out into the soil and watersheds.

The next time you go to the supermarket, try not to venture into the aisle containing bottled water. Make a wise choice, purchase a Life Ionizer, and have truly purified, healthy water.
