Want To Learn Why Reverse Osmosis Water is bad for you & how to fix it? Read Below!
Reverse osmosis water is made by removing nearly all of the minerals in tap water, leaving nothing but nearly pure water. Pure water may sound healthy, but it’s not. Your body needs to get essential minerals like calcium and magnesium every day for good health, and reverse osmosis water has no minerals in it.
Soft water is NOT softened water
Water that contains little or no minerals is called soft water. Many people confuse soft water and softened water, but they are not the same thing. Softened water (made by a water softener) contains salt, so it has either sodium or potassium in it. Soft water made by reverse osmosis has no salt in it.
Soft water danger
Large, cross-sectional studies of U.S and European populations show that people who drank soft water had a 15% higher chance of having a heart attack or stroke than people who drank hard water. It is a well-established medical fact: It is good for your health to drink mineral-rich water; it is bad for your health to drink water with no minerals in it.
Re-mineralization puts essential minerals into reverse osmosis water
Owners of Reverse Osmosis systems that want to make their water healthy for drinking need to put minerals in it. This is done with a re-mineralization cartridge, which attaches to the output of the reverse osmosis system. Life Ionizers re-mineralization cartridges put calcium and 74 other beneficial minerals in reverse osmosis water, which makes it ready for use with a water ionizer.
A water ionizer makes re-mineralized water better tasting, and easier for your body to absorb. The combination of a water ionizer and a re-mineralized reverse osmosis system makes the healthiest glass of water you ever drank.
Minimum water hardness (TDS) for good health: 170 mg/L
Life recommends owners of reverse osmosis systems check the hardness – also known as Total Dissolved Solids – (TDS) of their water after installing a re-mineralization cartridge. This is done with a TDS meter. We recommend a minimum water hardness of 170 mg/L (or ppm) because studies show that 170 mg/L total hardness (or greater) is best for heart health. You may need to run more than one re-mineralization cartridge to reach that level of hardness with larger reverse osmosis systems.
How a water ionizer makes re-mineralized water better
If you re-mineralize your water to Life’s minimum hardness recommendation, you will notice that it tastes like hard water, and that’s because it is hard water. Any water with hardness above 90 mg/L is considered to be hard water. A water ionizer makes any hard water including re-mineralized water taste great, and makes it better for you.
Alkaline water from a water ionizer tastes sweeter and more refreshing than any water you’ve ever tasted. It tastes better than bottled water, tap water, and especially reverse osmosis water! A Life Alkaline water ionizer will make your water the best water you’ve ever tasted, we guarantee it.
Alkaline water has health benefits that regular water doesn’t. Studies show a positive link to bone health, better hydration, and the ability to provide gradual relief of mild digestive upset. Pro athletes like 4X World Boxing Champion Miguel Cotto swear by alkaline water’s ability to hydrate better and improve their workouts. When you combine the benefits of minerals in water with the alkalinity-enhancing effect of a water ionizer, you get the ultimate water for health.
