Why Does Water Taste Bitter?
Even though water is considered flavorless, it does have a taste that can be influenced by many different factors. The taste of water is affected by the mineral content and compounds it contains. Tap water takes many routes to houses and is likely to taste different in other areas. Occasionally, the water will acquire minerals that enhance its flavor, or the pipes may cause a metallic taste. Other people's tap water may taste earthy or musty. The flavor of water is heavily influenced by the region, the water source, and the condition of the pipes. What Could Be Causing the Bitter Taste in Water? Typically, if your water tastes bitter, it could be because the pH is off. Additionally, high TDS (total dissolved solids) concentrations can cause bitter water. Hard water is characterized by a high TDS concentration. The corrosion of your home's pipes, which leads to an increase in copper or zinc concentrations, could also be a cause of bitter water. This may also contribute to a metallic taste, but there are also several other causes of a metallic taste in water. » Improve the taste of your water by using the Essential Mineral Drops What Can I Do to Make My Water Taste Better? Ionized water filters can help adjust your water's pH level, thereby enhancing its flavor. If the cause of the bitter water is high levels of minerals, reverse osmosis filtration systems can remove the minerals causing the unwanted flavor. If your water is bitter because of higher TDS levels (which have no negative effect on human health), you can make it taste better by adding fresh fruits and herbs like lemon, mint, berries, and cucumber.

Is It Safe to Drink Tap Water in Tel Aviv & Jerusalem?
The tap water in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem is safe to drink. Bottled water is widely available for those who wish to consume it, but the Ministry of Health recommends drinking tap water. The tap water in Israel comes from a few different sources, including coastal aquifers, mountain aquifers, Lake Kinneret, the Red Sea, and the Mediterranean Sea. Before drinking water is supplied to the public, it's disinfected and treated to make sure it's the healthiest water. » Discover how to naturally increase the pH of drinking water How Is Tap Water Quality Guaranteed in Israel? The Ministry of Health is responsible for ensuring that the water in Israel is safe to drink, quality standards are adhered to, and updated regulations are enforced. These regulations include that water sources are tested in laboratories before they're approved as safe to drink. The laboratories test for over 130 different components, including tests for avoiding microplastics and keeping minerals in tap water. The Water Regulations of Israel The Ministry of Health has issued the following guidelines for water quality: If a water source fails to meet the standard of quality required or has been contaminated, it cannot be used as a drinking water supply.Water treatment plants are constantly monitored by measurement instruments and regularly checked in laboratory tests. The results are reported to the Ministry of Health.Supply systems (pipelines, water towers, reservoirs) are constantly monitored by the water suppliers.All water supplied as drinking water is treated with chlorine. Strict regulations are in place to ensure the quantity of chlorine remains at a safe level. Safe and Clean Drinking Water The water regulations in Israel are among some of the most advanced in the world, ensuring clean tap water. However, a water filter can also be utilized to ensure you are drinking the best possible water.

How to Magnetize Water
Just like oxygen, water is paramagnetic, which means that it is capable of being magnetized and holding a magnetic charge. The molecules of magnetized water form a hexagonal cluster, just like structured water. Magnetized water is obtained by passing the water through specially manufactured permanent magnets that ionize and activate the water molecules to change the structure to that of hexagonal water. Magnetic water treatment is a method that is believed to reduce the effects of hard water by passing it through magnetic fields, making it a non-chemical method of softening water. How Is Water Magnetically Charged? Magnetic water treatment directs water to pass through a strong magnetic field between two powerful neodymium magnets. This process aims to change the structure of the deposits that form because of the minerals in the water, though it does not remove any of the calcium. Magnetic water keeps its physical and chemical properties for 48 to 72 hours. » See how you can make structured water at home Standing Water vs. Magnetized Water Magnetized water and structured water have the same chemical formula of H3O2, which means that three hydrogen atoms bond with two oxygen atoms. The chemical formula of normal standing water is H2O, which is two hydrogen atoms combined with one oxygen atom. Structured or magnetized water molecules form a hexagonal structure that is more easily absorbed by the cells of the body, resulting in optimum hydration. Standard water molecules form irregular shapes and angles and take more energy for the body to absorb. Magnetized water is also electrically charged and has a higher vibrational energy than standard water.

Is Carbon Dust from Water Filters Harmful?
A carbon filter is made with a solid block of compressed carbon, and it's effective for removing chlorine and certain chemicals, odors, and tastes from the water. However, a common concern with carbon filters is carbon dust, which are small carbon particles that appear in the water, especially when a new filter is installed. Can carbon dust affect your health? Is Carbon Dust Safe to Drink? Although the black dust floating in your water might look unappealing, it's not considered harmful. In fact, some believe consuming activated carbon (charcoal) is beneficial for the following: Cleansing bloodWhitening teethDecreasing flatulenceReducing bloating While none of these health benefits have been proven, many activated carbon products are regularly consumed, and these have much higher concentrations of carbon than the dust you'd consume from your water filter. The only concern with consuming activated carbon is that it could absorb some of the beneficial substances you ingest, like water-soluble vitamins and medications. However, there's no research to support this, and the water filter dust is so low in quantity that it's not of any real concern. Nevertheless, carbon dust is still an unpleasant sight, and there are ways to reduce the carbon particles in your water. » On the fence about filtered water? Learn about its health benefits. The Solution to Carbon Dust Carbon filters typically last between 6 and 12 months and should be replaced yearly. Since this could be a pain, a good option is to look for a filter that lasts a little longer and doesn't result in floating carbon dust. When shopping for a filter, it's important to make sure the one you choose is easy to maintain, has a high filtration rate, and is worth the investment. In addition to a good water filter, glass products like the Mayu carafe can be used to make structured water. This is beneficial because the vortex created by the carafe aerates the water, thus infusing more oxygen, evaporating volatile compounds, and raising the pH level of the water. » Carbon dust isn't the only danger in drinking water: Learn about microplastics in your tap water and how to detect them. Low Risk to Health While carbon dust isn't harmful, no one really wants black particles floating in their water. These particles can be removed with the Mayu Water products.

Is the Sodium in Bottled Water Bad for You?
Drinking bottled water is a convenient way to stay hydrated when you're on the go. However, it's important to be aware that some types of bottled water contain sodium. While the sodium levels in most bottled water are within healthy limits, consuming large amounts of sodium can lead to nausea, vomiting, and in severe cases, heart problems. Sodium is added to purified water during the purification process to enhance the water's flavor since filtering impurities can also remove essential minerals that affect the taste. Why Is Sodium Added to Bottled Water? Sodium is commonly added to bottled water to improve its taste. Water undergoes a purification process to remove impurities like bacteria, viruses, and chemical pollutants, but this process can strip away minerals and affect the water's flavor. To avoid this, sodium is often added to purified water to enhance the taste. If you're looking to make your drinking water even tastier and fortified with essential minerals, the MAYU Essential Mineral Drops and MAYU Swirl are exactly what you're looking for.
