1. Why is PURE drinking water so important?
Pure drinking water is a fundamental part of good health. It ranks only second to oxygen as essential for life. Did you know that you can survive for thirty days without food but no more than three days without drinking water? In fact, 70% of your body is made up of water and without it you would be poisoned to death by your own waste products.
Drinking water aids digestion and absorption of food, regulates body temperature, carries nutrients and oxygen to cells and removes toxins and other wastes. The body’s water also cushions joints and protects tissues and organs including the spinal cord from shock. Conversely a lack of drinking water or dehydration can be the cause of many ailments.
* Maintains healthy skin condition
* Flushes toxic waste from your system
* Aids weight loss
* Prevents fatique and headaches
* Protects against colds and flu
* Improves Concentration
2. What are the advantages of purified water?
Peace of Mind
By filtering your tap water you have the peace of mind that you are eliminating cancer causing chemicals and organic compounds while leaving you with healthy minerals like magnesium. Aside from producing healthier water, water filters also produce better tasting water for drinking and cooking thus providing a healthy environment for your whole family.
Purified water will prevent many skin diseases and skin problems. Exposure to chlorine has been linked to health problems such as skin irritation, bronchitis, asthma, and even cancer. Chlorine has been proven as one of the major causes of early aging skin and hair. Removing the chlorine in shower water will result in younger, softer skin and healthy looking softer hair.
Improve Air Quality
Chlorine vapors can lead to severe respiratory problems like asthma and chronic bronchitis. Whole house water filters will dramatically improve indoor air quality inside your house by preventing the release of chlorine vapors.
You’ll have more energy because your body doesn’t have to work as hard to filter out chemicals and unwanted substances that may cause stress to the lungs, liver and kidneys.
What is Water’s Role in the Body?
To help understand importance of water in the body, the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA at www.bottledwater.org) lists 13 things water does in the body:
1. Brain is 75% water. Moderate dehydration can cause headaches and dizziness
2. Water is required for perspiration
3. Regulates body temperature
4. Carries nutrients and oxygen to all cells in the body
5. Blood is 92% water
6. Moistens oxygen for breathing
7. Protects and cushions vital organs
8. Helps to convert food into energy
9. Helps body absorb nutrients
10. Removes waste
11. Bones are 22% water
12. Muscles are 75% water
13. Cushions joints
What happens to drinking water before it reaches my home?
Even if it is treated by the public water supplier, before it reaches my home, our drinking water will pass through a long line of pipes that may carry unwanted substances such as mentioned above and a lot of contaminants like lead, rust, dirt, asbestos, etc. This means that the water coming out of my taps is not 100% clean. In addition, while chlorine is used to treat the water, chlorine is harmful to our bodies. Here is an example of an underground water pipe:
Why is drinking water chlorinated?
As per our research, chlorination is necessary for two reasons. First, almost all sources of surface water contain microbiological organisms (bacteria & viruses) or contaminants, which have to be removed or killed in order to prevent the outbreak of waterborne diseases such as typhoid fever and cholera. Second, once the treated water leaves the treatment plant, it may travel through water mains and pipes sometimes at significant distances, before it reaches it’s destination. During this time, it is necessary to maintain a residual level of disinfectant in the water to ensure no possible regrowth of microorganisms.
Why is chlorination of drinking water bad?
Did you know that when drinking water is chlorinated, chlorination disinfection by-products (CDBPs) are formed called Trihalomethanes (THMs)? THMs are a group of four chemicals that are formed along with other disinfection by-products when chlorine or other disinfectants used to control microbial contaminants in drinking water react with naturally occurring organic and inorganic matter in water. The trihalomethanes are chloroform, bromodichloromethane, dibromochloromethane, and bromoform. They are Cancer Group B carcinogens (shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals). Trichloromethane (chloroform) is by far the most common in most water systems. Dibromochloromethane is the most serious cancer risk, (0.6 ug/l to cause a 10-6 cancer risk increase) followed in order by Bromoform (4 ug/l), and Chloroform (6 ug/l). Current regulations limit the concentration of these 4 chemicals added together (total trihalomethane or TTHM levels) to 100 ug/l.
What is Reverse Osmosis?
Reverse Osmosis is:
* An advanced water treatment process
* Forcing filtered water through
* a specially engineered MEMBRANE at
* HIGH PRESSURE to
* remove impurities such as dissolved salts, viruses, pesticides and most organic compounds.
Reverse osmosis is a filtration process that is often used for water. It works by pressure to force used a solution through a membrane, retaining the solute on the one side and allowing the pure solvent to pass to the other side. This is the reverse of the normal osmosis process, which is the natural movement of solvent from an area of low solute concentration when no external pressure is applied.
What is FIR (FAR INFRA RED)?
FAR infrared rays are part of the sunlight spectrum which is invisible to the naked eye. The wavelength of the far infrared rays range from 4 microns to 1000 microns. The recent studies in biotechnology field revealed that the FIR played an important role for formation and growth of all living organisms. For this reason specific FIR are called biogenetic rays.
Water and protein are the integral parts of all living organisms on earth. Water molecules are exposed to oscillating action of 8 -10 micro wavelengths. The resonance occurs between the two oscillations.The resonance causes ionization of water into hydrogen ion at extremely high speed (10/12sec). This ionization is called water activation. If such activation of water occurs in the human cellular tissues the metabolism of cells and extraction of residues from cells or nutrition are enhanced.
Water makes up 70% of the mass of the human body. FIR is able to activate, revitalize, reactive, develop and strengthen various organs in our bodies when it is absorbed.
Frost’s Carbon Filters have a layer of Bio Ceramic Infrared Balls(Red balls) that is activated with FIR rays to enhance the purification process of the water.
The Effects of FIR in our body:
* Activates water molecules in our body
* Improves O2 level in our bodies
* Warming and eliminating fats, chemicals and toxins from our blood and thus smoothing the flow of blood.
* Eliminating of other wastes in the body
* Reducing the acidic level in your body.
* Nervous system functionality improvement.
