We hear this question all the time “Do I have to change the filters on my alkaline water ionizer?”
If you yourself have asked this question, the answer is certainly “yes.” You have to change the filters of your water ionizer for you to maintain clean and purified water.
Your water ionizer has an anti-bacterial property which kills bacteria that go through your filter and prevent bacteria from developing inside it. Bacteria easily grows in damp places, and that includes the filter in your ionizer. Your filter will continue to expel the accumulation of bacteria even if you’re not turning your equipment on. So even if you use your equipment frequently or not, the antibacterial element in your filter is still continuously working. After some time, this antibacterial element slowly dissolves until your filter is no longer capable of fighting bacteria from the water that passes through your ionizer.
That is why changing filters on your alkaline water ionizer is crucial.
Every alkaline water ionizer has a mechanism to monitor the amount of water it has filtered and how many pollutants are left for if to effectively purify your water. It may have an on-screen reader which indicates the filter life and if it has reached the maximum number of pollutants that it can filter out. The ionizer also has an alarm or voice alert which prompts that it is about to be out of its filter life-span and that you should change your filter soon.
However, this doesn’t mean that you should only rely on the filter life indicator. No matter how frequently or seldom you use your alkaline water ionizer, note that the antibacterial element in the filter is working nonstop. So its life isn’t relative based only on how often you use your equipment. It is always safe to change your filter after every 12 months, as by then its antibacterial power is likely to have diminished. The ionization process may still remove the bacteria in the water, but you will likely notice that the taste and odor of the water have already changed by this time.
Your alkaline water ionizer is a huge investment in your household to keep your bodies alkalized and in good condition. Alkaline water from your ionizer has antioxidant properties that help fight free radicals in your body. The alkaline water also removes heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum, copper, cadmium, and fluoride which can all intoxicate your body. This weakens your bones, oxygen absorption, and immune system which makes you more prone to illnesses.
That is why you need to take care of your alkaline ionizer for it to keep on functioning properly. No matter how much you use it, always regularly check the filters and replace them after every 12 months of usage. This will give you the optimum purification and antibacterial properties that your water ionizer can provide.
One of the reasons why drinking alkaline water is good for you health is because it helps remove heavy metals that accumulate in the body.
You might be wondering how you could’ve accumulated such substances in the body. The truth is, there are many heavy metals that are added to food and drinks which, when a high enough level of them accumulates in the body, heavy metals can take over the essential minerals and can cause toxicity and illness.
That’s what’s good about drinking alkaline water. The following are the heavy metals that can be expelled by drinking alkaline water.
Below are just a few but highly toxic heavy metals that alkaline water can expel:
Lead can replace calcium in the bones and the blood cells. If the calcium in the bone is taken over by lead, the bone will become weaker, prone to fracture and will cause slow bone regeneration. Calcium that is replaced by lead in the blood cells can cause anemia.
Severely high levels of lead content in the body can cause high levels of lead in the brain and replace vital minerals such as iron, magnesium, and calcium, and this may lead to certain mental issues.
Mercury is one of the heavy metals that can be expelled by drinking alkaline water. It is the most poisonous substances man has ever discovered. It is known to cause damage to any living substances it lands on. If you apply an ample amount of a mercury-filled compound to an animal, it will damage the animal’s brain. A culture in a petri dish that is added with mercury will die. When you inject it into living tissue, the cells start to shrink and will eventually die.
There have been many reported cases in the past about people obtaining severe health conditions and even death because of mercury exposure. However, despite this alarming claim, mercury is still added to many substances. It can be found in canned goods, cultured fish, artificial additives, cosmetics, and in drinking water. It is even used as a preservative in children’s vaccines.
Cadmium is found to be a toxin in the brain. When the brain reaches a certain level of cadmium content, it causes a mental health disorder which is known as “small rebellion.” This triggers a person to have rebellious or violent thoughts and tendencies. A study has shown that when the cadmium is removed from the brain of the infected individual, this “small rebellion” also reduces.
Fluoride is known as the main ingredient in toothpaste. Moreover, fluoride is also present in other cleansing agents and insecticides. However, it is also added to vitamins and other dietary supplements which are then taken internally. High levels of fluoride can intoxicate your body and can even be more dangerous when it is combined with minerals and other substances. Water with fluoride has other minerals and heavy metals with it, which causes more danger to your body.
Although aluminum is a metal, it does not fall under the category of heavy metals. However, it still highly affects toxicity levels in the body. Aluminum can also contribute to the dysfunction of the neural membrane and may cause Alzheimer’s disease. It is an ingredient to make preservatives in food and antiperspirants. It is also present in aluminum cans and foils, and non-stick cookware.
Cleanse your body from toxins of the heavy metals added in your food and drinks. Start drinking alkaline water and maintain a clean, healthy body.
