ALL ABOUT WATER
Home / All about water
Water is one of the most important chemical compounds on our planet, and at the same time we need it for our everyday lives, and it’s also essential for the life of all living organisms on earth. It covers an estimated 71% of the earth’s surface, and approximately as much (72%) of it is contained within the human body. Within the water molecule (H2+I O-II), oxygen is stronger, so it’s bound to two hydrogen molecules so that it attracts hydrogen electrons more towards itself. Oxygen has a minus sign (−II), and a hydrogen sign has a plus sign (+ I). As a result, water has several unique and beneficial properties that we can obtain from it using special modern technologies.
It’s actually water divided into anions (-) and cations (+) by electrolysis without the addition of chemicals, retaining all of the original beneficial minerals contained in it. Through ionisation devices whereby electrolysis takes place, we obtain its beneficial properties from water. These devices have chambers separated into two parts with a specialised membrane, these are interconnected by electrodes anode (+) and cathode (-). Two types of water are separately formed in these chambers (alkaline in the ratio of approx. 70% and acidic in the ratio of around 30%). Completely different properties are obtained in this way which can be maintained for a sufficiently long time. These properties are specific for both alkaline and acidic waters, with a pH scale of 0 to 7 being acidic water // pH 7 neutral // pH of 7 to 14 alkaline water.
Alkaline – ionised water
Ionised alkaline water is electron-enriched. 70% of the total amount of ionised water produced by the ionisation process is alkaline (and 30% acidic). Alkaline ionised water is generally intended for inner use. It has more effective hydration properties than ordinary water.
Acidic – ionised water
30% of the total amount of ionised water produced by the ionisation process is acidic (and 70% of an alkaline character). Acidic ionised water is generally intended for cosmetic purposes and surface disinfection.
ORP (oxidation-reduction potential)
ORP is the ability to release or accept electrons. Measured ORP values can be positive or negative and are measured in mV. A negative ORP means that the solution contains free electrons that it can release. Positive ORP means that the solution has a lack of free electrons that will be taken somewhere. In practical terms, all carbonated drinks have a positive ORP, which ranges from approximately +150 to +250 mV. Completely fresh juice from most fresh fruits and vegetables has an ORP of around m150 mV. The human body must correct positive ORP values by providing its own energy source to bring the ORP values back to lower or even negative values that are natural to the body. The alkaline ionised water has a negative ORP, so it can compensate for high positive ORP sufficiently.
By preparing alkaline ionised water, an electron is taken from one oxygen molecule and delivered to the other, thereby making the molecule an antioxidant. All antioxidants have the ability to hold an extra electron, which is also typical of some vitamins. For example, tap water has an ORP of approximately +200 to +300 mV, which means that there is no reduction (antioxidant) potential. Oxidation is actually decomposition or ageing (for example, rust on the iron surface is oxidised metal, or when you cut an apple, it starts to turn brown on the sides of the cut). Oxidation causes damage by free radicals. The emergence of free radicals causes, for example, stress, poor eating. Our body’s ORP increases with age as we oxidise. Antioxidants work against ageing and various diseases by eliminating free radicals by means of their properties.
Tritium (3H) free and Radon (Rn) low
Due to the shallow and well-insulated subsurface storage of this natural resource (approx. 60-70 m below the surface), this mineral water doesn’t come into contact with common surfactants, such as Tritium (3H) and Radon (Rn) that are mostly found in bottled drinking water. This entire source is protected from the surface by a forty-metre (2 × 20 m) layer of continuous, highly impermeable clay, which, according to research, hasn’t resulted in any surface contamination over the past 65 years.
COD (chemical-oxidation index)
Compared to other waters, the basis of this natural mineral water naturally has a very low chemical oxidation index (COD) in the range of 0.20–0.55 O2 mg/l. Thanks to this low COD value, the water isn’t subject to chemical and biological degradation at all, even long term, and can be exposed to extreme conditions while maintaining the same water quality, stability, and microbiology.
Silicic acid (H2SiO3)
Silicon (Si) is the second most widespread element on Earth and one of the most important trace elements. It occurs mainly in the form of silicic acid (H2SiO3), which is more effective for the human body. Silicon has various functions in the human body in terms of its use. It can bind water in the body and combines several compounds to form solid structures. It can also be called a chemical “element of beauty” 🙂
