By now, most of us know that Aussie tap water contains some heavy metals (primarily from the soil and rusty water pipes), hormones (from the drugs people and cattle farmers flush down their drains), fluoride (that some municipalities add deliberately) and drug residues (that people flush down their drains). Add to this massive amounts of immune system destroying chemicals like Chlorine.
Although the focus for many has been on water purification, massive benefits can be gained from transforming filtered water into alkaline, antioxidant water, which is now increasingly referred to as hydrogen rich water. Numerous scientific studies have been done on the benefits of hydrogen rich water, and the results have proven improvements in many areas of health.
The Aqua Mountain 6 stage Hydrogen Rich Water Filter system removes or significantly reduces the heavy metals, hormones, drugs, fluoride, and even some other chemicals from your tap water. When independent academics from the University of Edinburgh’s department of engineering tested the Hydrogen Enriched system, they found that it could almost completely remove fluoride, heavy metals, oestradiol (a hormone), bisphenol-A (a toxic substance that leaks from plastic) and chlorophenol (a substance found in pesticides).
What will the Aqua Mountain 6 Step Hydrogen Rich Water Filter System remove from your Town Water?
1. Fluoride. Even at the legally permitted amounts, fluoride may cause osteoarthritis, bone brittleness, impaired brain and cognitive development, obesity, and depression due to the inhibition of the activities of the thyroid. The Reverse Osmosis element in our 6 step system removes fluoride, along with other town water chemicals such as chlorine.
2. Lead – compromises your neurological development and gives rise to a long list of brain and nervous system disorders. As a nation, we complain when it accidentally ends up in our children’s toys, but bewilderingly, we are relaxed when it shows up in our drinking water.
3. Hormones can compromise children’s normal sexual development and affect adult sexual functioning as well.
4. Bisphenol-A causes erectile dysfunction, lower fertility and carries a risk of breast and prostate cancer.
5. Chlorophenol – Many studies have linked chlorophenol to various types of cancer.
What will the Hydrogen Rich Water Filter System remove from your Tank Water?
The main sources of concern in tank water are removed by the Reverse Osmosis step in the Aqua Mountain Hydrogen Rich Water Filter system. These include: Cryptosporidium, Giardia and eColi.
What are the Benefits of Hydrogen Rich Water produced in the Aqua Mountain 6 step system?
- Free of contaminants, chemicals, etc
- Rich in antioxidants
- Alkaline water
- Hydrogen Rich water
- Clean, pure tasting water
The antioxidants which are particularly rich in hydrogen have recently been subjected to an impressive amount of research as a health aid. The molecules are small enough to pass through cell membranes with little effort, and researchers believe hydrogen rich substances to be almost completely without adverse health effects. Hydrogen rich water filters are at the cutting edge of medical science, as some physicians are beginning to prescribe hydrogen saline injections, hydrogen baths and hydrogen gas to inhale. With an alkaline, hydrogen rich water filter, you can effectively have your own medicine on tap! The Aqua Mountain 6 Step Hydrogen Rich Water Filter delivers alkaline water in the pH range of 8.5 to 9.5 over a 12 month period and even longer.
Hydrogen rich water is a potent antioxidant. It can prevent oxidation from causing damage to cells throughout your body, and it can repair cells that have already been damaged by it, thereby preventing them from becoming free radicals that steal electrons away from their neighbouring cells in the process of trying to repair themselves. Alkaline water, such as is produced by the Aqua Mountain 6 Step Hydrogen Rich Water Filter, has been tested specifically and discovered to be one of the strongest antioxidants ever examined. Oxidative damage is one of the causes of many health problems, including cancer, early aging, dementia and other neurological conditions. Damaged cells cannot function as required, which means that no-one with a significant amount of oxidative damage can expect to have energy, mental clarity, and overall good health.
After applying hydrogen rich solutions to cancer cells in the laboratory, scientists concluded that they could shrink and suppress the growth of these cells. Many animal studies have concurred, and since some researchers subjected the laboratory animals to no cancer treatment other than the alkaline water, it appears that the inhibitory effect of hydrogen solutions on cancer cells can be incredibly strong. As always, it is worth mentioning that you should not abandon your cancer treatment in favour of alkaline water; the research has not been repeated on a sufficient number of human beings in their natural settings to risk your life on it. But it can be a powerful addition to your existing cancer treatment.
Drinking hydrogen rich water can protect against the neurological damage of brain injury, caused by surgery or a stroke, or as occurs over time due to oxidative stress. If you are an at risk person such as someone who plays contact sport, or you take care of a relative who has suffered a stroke, or you are horrified at the idea of dementia, Hydrogen Rich water could be a good safeguard for you.
Many animal studies have proven that hydrogen rich substances greatly improve the prospects of sufferers of heart failure and heart attacks. Scientists have proven that hydrogen rich substances (primarily hydrogen saline) can prevent cardiovascular damage caused by oxidative stress and/or inflammation after serious cardiac events.
Hydrogen attacks inflammation. Researchers at the Forsyth Institute in Boston caused inflammatory bowel disease in mice, and proved that drinking hydrogen rich water could relieve the inflammation and even prevent it in those mice who received it before the disease was brought about. Other scientists found that it could relieve inflammatory liver disease and lung inflammation, which could be particularly helpful for asthma sufferers. In fact, when one research team tested hydrogen sulphide on asthmatic rats, they discovered that it did prompt considerable relief. Some experts also discovered that it could slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis and relieve some of its symptoms. Rheumatoid arthritis is, at its core, a condition that causes inflammation in the joints.
Hydrogen rich water improves fat and glucose metabolism, even in people with type 2 diabetes and impaired glucose tolerance. In a study on rats, academics found that hydrogen has an effect on fatty liver, cholesterol, metabolic syndrome and obesity.
Hydrogen rich water supports strong bones and muscles. This will come as no surprise to knowledgeable alkaline water drinkers – it’s one of the most frequently investigated benefits. Alkaline, antioxidant water helps your body maintain the pH of your blood at 7.3 pH without it having to loot minerals like calcium and magnesium, which are stored in the cells of bones and muscles. As a result, it prevents bone loss and osteopenia, which is a condition in which the protein and mineral content of bone tissue is reduced, but less severely than in osteoporosis.
In summation, here’s a list of Benefits of Hydrogen Rich Water:
• Lubricates joints and muscles; our body is 70% water
• Keeps our minds alert; the brain is over 70% water needing hydration to function
• Helps the body absorb nutrients
• Aids in circulation and digestion
• Helps regulate body temperature
• Detoxifies cells and the whole body
• Improves blood pressure, decreases headaches, arthritic symptoms, back pain, and chronic illness symptoms
