10 Health Benefits of Structured Water for Your Family
Structured water10 Health Benefits of Structured Water for Your FamilyAlso known as hexagonal water, structured water contains molecules that form a hexagonal cluster. Structured water shares similarities with water that hasn't been contaminated by human processes. In its original form, it comes from natural and unpolluted sources like mountain springs and glacier melts. However, it's believed that water molecules can be altered to form EZ water, which essentially returns it to the natural structured water frequency. Below, we'll discuss the benefits of this type of water for the health of your family. » Want structured water in your home? Learn how to make structured water What Makes Structured Water Unique? The water that flows out of our taps undergoes treatment that destroys its natural structure—both vibrationally and chemically. The chemical formula for normal water is H2O, which means each water molecule contains two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. On the other hand, the chemical formula for structured water is H3O2, which means three hydrogen atoms combine with two oxygen atoms to form one molecule. This results in more energized water, with properties of viscosity, alkalinity, and denseness. One of the benefits of structured water that makes it stand out from different types of water is that its molecules have a higher level of electrical charge vital for cell functioning. To enjoy all these benefits and more, you can make your own structured water with the help of Mayu Swirl. This amazing water can also be used for more than just human consumption, as some of its advantages also include the following: When used in spas, it lessens the chlorine requirements for pools and jacuzzisHelps gardens, lawns, and house plants bloom and thriveImproves the development of crops with expanded biomassLowers the freezing point so crops and plants can be sustained at lower temperaturesHealthier fish and livestockLowers the water surface tension for better penetration. 10 Health Benefits of Structured Water Below, you can read about some of the specific benefits structured water can bring you and your family. 1. Fresh and Invigorating Taste Structured water has a better taste than tap or filtered water. Hexagonal water is often described as smooth, sweet, clean, and soft water. This is because the surface tension of structured water is lower than that of regular filtered water, which prevents bitter-tasting water. » Does your water taste metallic? See if this is bad for you 2. Optimal Hydration Because of the hexagonal structure of EZ water, it's more efficiently absorbed by the body's cells. This results in optimal hydration, which reduces fatigue and provides the body with more energy while also giving you hydrated, restored skin and making dry hair cleaner, smoother, and glossier. 3. Improved Weight Management Proper hydration is essential for all bodily functions, including those that affect weight loss. Structured water helps improve digestion, eliminate constipation, and strengthen the microbiology in the gut. A healthy digestive system helps maintain weight and promote weight loss. 4. Increased Detoxification Drinking enough water is essential for detoxifying the body. Structured water enhances this process because the water molecules are able to move more efficiently across cell membranes as well as in and out of cells. This helps “rinse out” any toxins within the cells so that the body can flush them out. Structured water also helps dissipate and change the form of many toxins, making them less absorbable. 5. Increased Immune System Function Drinking structured water supports and boosts immune system functioning and longevity in several ways. Hexagonal water promotes optimal bioavailability of nutrients and makes it easier for the cells to absorb oxygen, resulting in the optimal functioning of your system. 6. Better for Your Pets Structured water has the same benefit for your pets and other animals as it does for humans. Giving your pet structured water will increase their immune support and detox their bodies. 7. Improved Absorption of Minerals, Vitamins, and Nutrients Drinking EZ water enables enhanced reception and absorption of minerals and nutrients on a cellular level. The increased vitamins and minerals from the water bolster the body's metabolism and residue excretion. Structured water also provides deep intracellular hydration and optimized mineral uptake. 8. Cartilage and Disc Regeneration The pressure of daily activities takes water from the stores in the discs, which contributes to cartilage degeneration and results in difficult and painful movement. Cartilage doesn't function well in an acidic environment, which is why more alkaline water like structured water improves cartilage and disc regeneration. Increasing the water's pH levels will help rehydrate the discs, allowing them to regain their cushioning quality, size, and shape. Proper hydration also washes away toxins in the joints. » Need to lower your water's pH level instead? See how to do it naturally 9. Cell Recovery Drinking structured water helps the cells recover faster, as water is a vital building block in every cell of the body. Structured water is able to hold an energy charge, so it saves energy in the body on a cellular level when you drink it. As a result, the cells are able to use this energy without having to process it, helping the cells recover faster. 10. Increased Energy Levels The human body requires sustainable, balanced, long-lasting energy. EZ water increases the mitochondrial energy output in the body, which helps cells across your body function more efficiently. In addition to aiding the absorption of minerals to increase energy, drinking structured water increases your overall energy naturally, working better than caffeine. Reap the Health Benefits of Structured Water Structured water is beneficial for our overall well-being. Drinking hexagonal water makes it easier for our bodies to absorb optimum levels of minerals and vitamins to stay hydrated. Structured water provides our bodies with the energy required to live a quality life in a safe and fresh-tasting way. The best way to access structured water and reap these benefits with your family is to make it at home with ease using the Mayu Swirl Carafe.

Wine Aerator vs. Decanter: Key Differences & Benefits
Wine aerationWine Aerator vs. Decanter: Key Differences & BenefitsFor those of us who love wine, understanding the difference between an aerator and a decanter is an essential part of our wine education. While both techniques help "open up" the flavor profile of the wine by exposing it to oxygen and serve the same purpose of enhancing flavor, they have different processes and benefits. Knowing how and when to use each one properly will ensure you get the most out of your wines. » Can all wines be aerated? See if you should aerate cheap wines Wine Aerator An aerator is essentially any device or method that invigorates wine with oxygen to release its aroma and flavor. Although this can include simply swirling the wine in a glass, using a special aerator tool is recommended for getting the full benefits of this method. We aerate wine to soften tannins and help integrate flavors, resulting in a smoother and more balanced taste. If you want to enjoy a glass of the finest red or white wine at home, you might want to consider investing in an aerator, which is designed to instantly aerate wine by passing it through a nozzle. In general, aerators are best suited for wines that are heavy-bodied and tannic, like Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, and Nebbiolo, to name a few. These wines are described as "closed" or "tight," and the aerator helps open them up, allowing the flavors and aromas to be more prominent. Most white wines as well as more fragile vintages don't need to be aerated. How To Use It To properly use a wine aerator, follow these steps: Remove the stopper or cork from the bottle of wine.Place the aerator device on top of the bottle, ensuring it's securely attached.Pour the wine slowly into a glass and watch as the aerator mixes in oxygen to the wine.Enjoy your newly aerated glass of wine! Benefits Aerators are convenient and ideal for single glasses of wineThey're inconspicuous, easy to clean, and simple to storeThey aerate wine instantaneously » Learn more about aerating wine without a decanter Wine Decanter While a decanter does aerate wine, it's primarily a vessel used to separate any sediment from the wine before it's served. Decanters are made of glass or crystal and feature a wide base that gradually tapers to a narrower neck, allowing for easy pouring of wine. Most wine decanters have a spout at the top of the neck, which helps control the flow of wine when pouring. The wide body provides ample space for the wine to swirl, allowing oxygen to mix with the liquid and resulting in a significantly more balanced taste. A decanter should be used when decanting young or strong red wines with harsh tannins. It's definitely a good idea to decant Bordeaux, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Malbec wines. While reds generally have more sediment than whites, decanting can benefit most types of wine, except sparkling wine. Bubbly wines should never be decanted, as they need their "bouncy" effervescence to stay fresh. How To Use It Remove the cork carefully from the bottle of wine.Place the decanter on a flat surface and begin pouring the wine slowly into the decanter in one motion, making sure any sediment stays in the bottle. If you see any trace of sediment, stop pouring. Through this process of decanting, you've already started aerating the wine. Depending on the type and age of the wine, allow it to sit for a few more minutes before serving to let it breathe before you drink. Benefits Decanters can be used to aerate larger batches at onceThey remove sediment from older wines and aerate younger wines Aerate Your Wine to Get the Most Out of It Taking the time to understand when to use an aerator and a decanter will help bring out the best qualities of each bottle of wine, allowing you to savor every sip. And if you're looking to further improve your wine-drinking experience, the Mayu Swirl can serve as your alternative to wine decanters, helping you easily aerate your wines. This way, you'll be able to get the most out of your wine and aerate like a professional. » Elevate your wine-drinking experience with Mayu Swirl
5 Pro Tips on Aerating Wine for Great Taste & Aroma
Wine aeration5 Pro Tips on Aerating Wine for Great Taste & AromaThe love of wine is an undeniable part of our culture, so it's no surprise wine drinkers are always interested in finding ways to deepen their appreciation of their favorite wine. One way we can achieve this is by aerating wines before drinking them. Wine aeration is the process of exposing the wine to oxygen, letting it "breathe" to enhance its flavor profile. Aeration can be achieved by pouring the wine into a vessel or swirling the wine in a glass to initiate oxidation and convert ethanol into acetaldehyde. As a result, the color becomes more concentrated, aromas and flavors are enhanced, and the bouquet is more appealing. Oxidation also helps evaporate some of the alcohol in the wine, resulting in a smoother taste. Follow these five pro tips on aerating wine to unlock the full potential of your wine. » Learn whether you should aerate cheap wines 1. Consider the Effects of Aeration on Different Wine Types When we let the wine breathe, the oxygen breaks down a phenolic compound called tannins. Tannins are found more abundant in red wine, giving it astringency—that puckering sensation in the mouth while you drink. In younger reds, this can be quite harsh and bitter, but aerating wine can soften the tannins. In general, 10 to 20 minutes of aeration should be enough to soften the tannins in most red wines, while more full-bodied reds require up to an hour of aeration to round out the tannins. 2. Pay Attention to Volume The volume of wine plays a role in the aeration process. When you open a bottle of wine, it's only natural that some air will enter it and some degree of oxidation will occur. However, this doesn't affect the entire bottle of wine, but only the top layer. If you're planning on serving the entire bottle, we recommend pouring it into an aerator. If you only want to aerate a glass of wine, simply pour the wine into the glass, give it a swirl, and let it sit for about 15 minutes before drinking. » Wine aerator vs. decanter: see the difference 3. Don't Forget to Check the Time The difference between aerating younger and older wines is that younger wines usually benefit from more exposure to oxygen, while older wines require less exposure. So, it's crucial that you time it carefully. While aerating younger wines, the goal is to open up the aromas and flavors of the wine by allowing oxygen to interact with the tannins and other harsher elements in the wine longer. When it comes to older wines, too much exposure to oxygen can damage their delicate flavors and balance, so it’s best to aerate them for no more than 15 to 30 minutes. However, over-oxidation can be harmful to all wines, causing them to become flat and lose their color and personality. So, don't be overzealous with aerating your wine. 4. Try an Aerating Device As we mentioned earlier, aerating wine in the bottle is a slow and ineffective method, which is why aerators can come in handy to increase oxygen exposure. When exposed to more air, wine releases its flavors faster, which cuts aeration time and lets you enjoy your wine sooner. Aerating devices can help do the following: Soften tannins and reduce astringency in red winesMimic the aging process in younger wines and cheaper winesHelp evaporate certain sulfites and ethanol compounds to reduce hangover symptoms like headaches and nausea 5. Use a Modern Decanter Our final pro tip is to make use of a modern decanter. Decanting is the process of separating a liquid from solid particles, so it allows for any sediment to settle out of the wine. While these sediments are safe to consume, discarding the gritty particles will make your wine more enjoyable to drink. Aerate Wine Like a Pro With Mayu Swirl After aeration, wine is known to have a smoother and more complex flavor. If you're looking for an easy way to aerate wine to further enhance your wine-drinking experience, products like Mayu Swirl are just what you need.

3 Reasons Why Aerating Wine Enhances Its Aroma and Flavor Profile
Wine aeration3 Reasons Why Aerating Wine Enhances Its Aroma and Flavor ProfileAny oenologist, wine connoisseur, and sommelier worth their salt will attest to the importance of aeration in wine-making. Aeration is a process that involves exposing the wine to oxygen to enhance its taste and develop its complexity. The oxidation causes chemical reactions that can alter the flavor profile of the wine, soften tannins, and release aromas, while the evaporation of harsher compounds reduces any bitter flavors that may have developed during the aging process. In this blog, we'll discuss three reasons why the process of aeration with a wine aerator or decanter affects the flavor and aroma of your wine. » Wine aerator vs. decanter: see the difference 1. Wine Reaches Its Peak Sooner By introducing oxygen to the wine, a wine aerator speeds up the evaporation process and helps the wine release its full aroma sooner. Rather than letting the wine breathe on its own, an aerator speeds up the oxidation process to allow you to enjoy the full bouquet of flavor right away. In addition, using an aerator also removes the sediments and any other impurities that can detract from the flavor of the wine. 2. Volatile Compounds Are Eliminated Aeration enhances the wine's flavor by speeding up the evaporation of volatile compounds, which are molecules in the wine that can contribute to bad hangover symptoms as well as compromised taste and quality. The leading culprits in this regard are: Sulfites – preservatives found in wine that help protect against spoilage. Although they're a natural byproduct of the fermentation process, some wines are further preserved by added sulfites. These can compromise the flavor by giving the wine an overly smoky aroma.Hydrogen sulfide – an undesirable byproduct in the wine fermentation process that gives off a strong, rotten egg smell.Ethanol compounds - the intoxicating ingredient of wine. When aerated, these compounds evaporate slightly, reducing the effects of hangover and alcohol on the body.Tannins - natural compounds found in red wine responsible for its astringent and bitter taste. While tannins are essential for the structure, flavor, and color of red wine, they can cause more severe hangover symptoms. Aeration speeds up the oxidation process and breaks down the tannins in the wine, making it more supple and less headache-inducing. 3. Underlying Flavors Are Elevated The process of aerating wine is essential to the overall tasting experience. When exposed to oxygen, the molecules in the wine interact with each other, allowing for a fuller expression of the flavor profile. You can access a wider variety of subtle and complex notes that may be hidden underneath the more pronounced textures and aromas. Aeration also rounds out the tannins in the wine, which could otherwise make it harsh on the palate. Aeration can also work wonders for cheaper wines, which have a reputation for being dull and flavorless. Many inexpensive wines have fruity and floral notes or smoky and earthy undertones that are just waiting to be unlocked by adding a bit of air. » Unlock your wine's full aroma with our wine aeration tips Enhance the Wine's Flavor Profile With Aeration Aerators will help you get the most out of your favorite wine, be it red or white wine, mature or young. Introducing the aeration process into your wine appreciation routine is quick and simple to do. To make wine aeration even easier, products like the Mayu Swirl will provide the perfect amount of oxygen to any type or quantity of wine you desire. » Elevate your wine-drinking experience with Mayu Swirl
The Science Behind Swirling Wine & How to Do It
Wine aerationThe Science Behind Swirling Wine & How to Do ItDrinking wine is a great way to relax and enjoy yourself, but there’s more to it than just popping the cork and pouring a glass. Learning about wine-enhancing techniques like swirling will bring your wine-drinking experience to a whole new level. Swirling helps oxygenate the wine and soften tannins, which can mellow any bitterness in the wine's taste. Not only does this make the wine taste better, but it also allows you to appreciate the nuances of the wine's flavor and aroma even more. » Unlock your wine's full flavor with our wine aeration tips Understanding The Science of Swirling When wine is swirled, the moving liquid generates kinetic energy as its molecules move faster and collide with each other, slightly increasing the temperature as well. This breaks the surface tension and allows more air to enter the wine and form air bubbles, infusing the wine with oxygen, which is essential for converting ethanol into acetaldehyde, a chemical that deepens the wine's color and flavor. Swirling wine enhances evaporation and releases more of its aromatic compounds, although the wine's aroma also depends on the structure and character of the grape. Aerating the wine brings out hidden nuances in the flavor and wine bouquet, allowing for a deeper appreciation of the wine's personality. While red wines have more berry and spice smells, white wines feature citrus and flowery notes. » Learn why aeration improves the wine's aroma Wine Glass Shape for Optimal Swirling To enhance your wine-tasting experience, you have to choose the correct glass shape for swirling. To do so, consider the following aspects: The best glass shape for swirling has large drinking glass bowl diameters with an increased wetted sidewall area to improve the swirling velocity and release more aromas. The glass should be no more than one-third full, so the wine can be swirled without spilling. How to Swirl Like a Pro It's impossible to say what the perfect technique is for swirling your wine since everyone's technique is unique. Although there are various tips for aerating wine for improved taste, the most important thing is to keep the speed of the swirl consistent so that the wine has enough time to interact with the oxygen in the glass and release its aromas. However, too much swirling can cause the wine to become over-aerated and lose its flavor, so it's important to find the right balance. Follow these steps to effectively swirl your wine in a glass: Pour a small amount of wine into a glass, no more than one-third full Place the glass firmly on a tableHold your glass with your dominant hand by placing your thumb and forefinger on the glass stemMake a small, circular motion so that the wine flows along the sides of the glass while keeping the base of the glass on the tableMaintain this swirling motion for 20-30 seconds, then stop and observe the legs that form on the side of the glassSmell the aromas released from the swirling Your wine is now aerated even without a decanter, and you're all set for that first sip! » Wine aerator vs. decanter: see the difference Get the Most Out of Your Wine With Mayu Swirl While swirling may be an adequate way to oxygenate wine, you may want to step up your wine appreciation with an aerator. Using these devices, you can rapidly saturate your wine with oxygen in whatever volume you like.

Understanding the Minerals in Tap Water—Are They Healthy?
Water qualityUnderstanding the Minerals in Tap Water—Are They Healthy?Drinking water comes from natural sources like lakes, rivers, and underground water deposits. But, before it makes its way to your tap, the water is processed at a treatment facility, where it gets filtered, and various chemicals are added to ensure it's safe for consumption. It is important to understand the mineral composition of your drinking water to ensure that it is healthy. So let's get into more detail about the mineral content in tap water. Does Tap Water Contain Minerals? Yes, tap water generally contains both naturally occurring, as well as added minerals to support our health. Drinking water comes from natural origins, so it will contain all the minerals found in its source. In fact, some tap water is considered “hard water” because it has higher mineral content. Additionally, for health and quality concerns, some minerals and chemicals are added at the water treatment facility. One of the minerals added to tap water is fluoride, which helps strengthen your teeth and prevent tooth decay by up to 25%, according to the CDC. Tap Water Mineral Content and Benefits Calcium: teeth, bones, cell growth, and the production of hormonesMagnesium: bones, the metabolism, and the functioning of musclesSodium: regulating blood pressure, and balancing bodily fluidsCopper: bone and connective tissue, the immune system, and blood clotting There are a few other minerals found in trace amounts, including potassium, phosphorus, iron, selenium, zinc, and chromium. Are Minerals in Tap Water Good for You? Yes, the minerals found in water are usually healthy and aid in the basic functioning of the human body and overall well-being. Our bodies are unable to create these minerals on their own, so nutrient-rich water is an important part of a healthy diet. Water that is low in minerals won't be as effective in terms of hydration. Also, the minerals in the water contribute to the overall health of the heart, as they are responsible for lowering blood pressure and regulating blood flow. However, the contents of your tap water don't only depend on its source and quality control, but on the overall condition of the plumbing system. That's why many decide to take extra precautions and filter their water. Does Filtered Tap Water Have Minerals? No, it doesn't, as filtering water reduces its contents to their basic form, not only removing contaminants but minerals as well. Drinking water that is low in mineral content is generally considered not to be good for your health, so it's crucial you remineralize your water after the filtration process is done. Products like Essential Mineral Drops by Mayu Water can make your water nourishing and healthy again. Infuse the Life Back Into Your Water Mayu Essential Mineral Drops, a 100% natural mineral supplement for filtered water. Taps the source: Holds the mineral composition of the best natural springs.Rich in nutrients: Each drop contains 75 essential minerals.All natural: No added preservatives, flavors, sugars, or sweeteners.Eco-friendly: Do away with bottled mineral water and reduce plastic waste. Essential Mineral Drops by Mayu Water are the result of the analysis of the best water springs found in nature. It not only adds back essential water minerals like magnesium, chloride, and sodium but also 72 ionic organic trace minerals in varying amounts. Does Filtering Tap Water Make It Healthier? It usually does, since besides organic and added minerals, the full composition of tap water may contain various unwanted trace elements as well. Herbicides and nitrates used in agriculture accumulate in soil and can contaminate water sources through irrigation and rainfall. Chemicals such as perchlorate, mercury, and various pharmaceuticals have also been known to cause pollution due to poorly controlled manufacturing facilities and improper disposal. Ultimately, the Flint water crisis was caused by lead contamination, as lead pipes are still widely in use across the US, which is why many water treatment facilities add phosphate to ensure maximum safety. For many, drinking unpurified tap water is not a risk they are willing to take. Taking additional measures such as filtering means gaining full control of the contents of your glass. » Learn more about the health benefits of filtered water Do You Remove Minerals in Water by Boiling It? The general answer is no. Boiling water can help to kill any harmful bacteria in tap water, but even if the water is boiled to over 212 degrees Fahrenheit, it won’t destroy or remove any of the minerals. How to Remineralize Filtered Water There are many ways of adding back minerals to your water, ranging from water filters to more cost-effective solutions like Himalayan salt. The natural mineral balance of spring water can be difficult to recreate, which is why many choose to use mineral supplements, making it easier to know exactly what they're adding to their water. Making the Most Out of Tap Water Tap water is generally considered safe to drink. However, many people prefer to filter their water to remove contaminants and bacteria, and then remineralize it themselves. As we know, water is the source of all life, and studies around the world agree that drinking water low in minerals is detrimental to your health. Therefore, it is important that the liquid that keeps you alive is not only safe to drink, but also in perfect balance with all the nutrients and minerals that it's supposed to provide to you.
4 Health-Boosting Ways to Remineralize Reverse Osmosis Water
Water quality4 Health-Boosting Ways to Remineralize Reverse Osmosis WaterThe reverse osmosis filtration process effectively removes contaminants that could potentially lead to health implications. However, because this filtration process is so thorough, it also removes all the essential minerals from the water. Put simply, reverse osmosis water is not considered to be the healthiest water, as it can leach minerals from the body when consumed. Thus, if you do decide to filter your water with reverse osmosis, make sure you add back the minerals for maximum health benefits. » Read more about the advantages and disadvantages of RO water Essential Minerals That Disappear During Reverse Osmosis Tap water is usually rich in minerals, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Minerals are essential for our health and proper bodily functions. They contribute to strong teeth and bones, healthy hair and skin, the growth and development of the body, and optimal neurological functioning. Not getting enough essential minerals or having them leached from your body, although you're hydrating with reverse osmosis water, disrupts your system's ability to function properly and leads to possible negative consequences. Our Body's Core Minerals and Their Significance Calcium: teeth, bones, and the digestive systemMagnesium: mineralization of the skeleton, heart-disease preventionFluoride: teeth health and strengthSodium: blood pressure, muscles and nerves, and electrolyte balanceCopper: general health maintenance, bone strength, the immune systemIron: blood oxygenationZinc: overall development, DNA synthesis, sensory functions, and immunity » Add these and more minerals to your RO water with mineral drops So, How Do You Add Minerals to Reverse Osmosis Water? Using reverse osmosis to clean the water of contaminants should only be half the process. Adding back the minerals is a necessary second step to ensure that you're getting the most out of your drinking water. Drinking nutrient-rich water is a vital part of a healthy diet, and strong consideration should be given to remineralizing water if it has undergone reverse osmosis. Remember, having minerals in your water is especially beneficial for the heart, one of the most important organs in your body. 1. Remineralize RO Water With Mineral Drops Mineral drops are a concentrated liquid solution that you drop into your water to increase the mineral content. These drops are considered the quickest and easiest way to replace the essential minerals lost during reverse osmosis. They are also easily absorbed by the body. Mayu's Essential Blend is extremely efficient as it provides an estimated 60 servings per container and suggests adding 8 drops to every 1 liter of water. It's 100% natural, and its contents are inspired by springs found in nature. Each drop contains 75 essential minerals and other ionic elements, so this supplement is crucial if you use reverse osmosis. 2. Add Minerals Naturally Using Salts Salt, especially Himalayan salt, contains all the essential trace minerals that reverse osmosis removes from your drinking water. Be careful, however, it's important to use rich mineral salt and not table salt. This method is also one of the most cost-effective ways of remineralizing your water. You can either add a tiny pinch to every glass of water, or you can add a quarter of a teaspoon to every 4.5 liters of water. 3. Install a Remineralizing Water Filter This type of filter contains minerals, and as the reverse osmosis water passes over the minerals, they're dissolved back into the water. This happens at the end of the filtering stage, and the pH level and temperature of the water determine how many minerals get dissolved. This is another easy solution since you don’t need to worry about doing any manual work. A remineralizing water filter can be added to most reverse osmosis systems. If you're not sure, someone who works at a water filter store will be able to help you choose the right water filter. 4. Restore the Minerals Using an Alkaline Pitcher An alkaline pitcher adds, filters, and raises the pH level of your reverse osmosis water by adding minerals to it. These essential minerals make the water a bit more alkaline, which means the pH level of the water gets slightly increased. This ensures that the necessary and adequate amount of minerals is added to the water. An alkaline pitcher is an easy way to store your water and will automatically remineralize it. » Discover natural ways to increase the pH level of water Is RO Water Remineralization Necessary? Reverse osmosis water is not bad for you. In some places, it's essential to use a reverse osmosis system, or you may be susceptible to water-borne diseases. However, it's better to play it safe and remineralize your water, as the minerals in water are essential for a reason.

4 Considerations to Make When Choosing a Reverse Osmosis System
Filtering water4 Considerations to Make When Choosing a Reverse Osmosis SystemReverse osmosis water is considered one of the cleanest forms of water. There are many benefits to reverse osmosis water, as these systems remove up to 99% of lead, asbestos, and 82 other water contaminants. Installing a reverse osmosis system in your home ensures you always have access to quality water that's safe from bacteria, parasites, chlorine, heavy metals, and other potentially harmful contaminants, which is essential in areas with unsafe drinking water. Although an RO filter is a great investment, it can be tricky to choose the perfect system for your household. To help you make the best choice, below we've outlined four important things to consider before you choose a reverse osmosis system for your home. » Learn the health benefits of reverse osmosis water 1. Good Balance of Cost and Quality One of the first aspects you'll need to think about is your reverse osmosis system budget. RO systems can be quite pricey, but it's worth spending a little more to get the desired results. The more expensive systems often feature more stages, or the number of filters used. They also have the ability to filter larger volumes of water at a time and have added features like autoflush. Some of the more high-end RO filters are also able to add valuable nutrients back to the drinking water after the potentially harmful ones have been filtered out. On the other hand, as with any other product, the RO systems on the lower end of the price range might leave you feeling disappointed. They could be made from cheap materials that don't last or filter properly. When it comes to the mid-range systems, they function well enough to get the job done properly, but the higher-end options come with some added nice-to-have features. 2. Water Pressure When choosing your water filter, you'll need to know you have sufficient water pressure for a reverse osmosis system to function properly. The ideal water pressure for an RO system is 60 PSI (pounds per square inch). Any pressure below 40 PSI is considered insufficient, and you'll likely need to boost your water with a pressure booster pump. Low water pressure will result in the RO system filtering less water at a reduced quality. » RO vs. water softener: learn which is better for drinking 3. City Water vs. Well Water When looking to install a reverse osmosis system, you should also know whether you'll be using it to filter city water or well water. City Water City water is supplied from local treatment plants, and it primarily comes from surface or groundwater supplies. The water that enters the treatment plants may contain all sorts of contaminants like arsenic, herbicides, pesticides, parasites, bacteria, and heavy metals. Once it's in the treatment plant, chlorine is added to disinfect the drinking water. Reverse osmosis is a good option for drinking water supplied from the city because it could contain potentially harmful substances that your RO system will remove. Well Water Although most wells get their water from underground aquifers, well water is still susceptible to impurities like microorganisms, nitrate, heavy metals, and other chemicals. Well water isn't treated with chlorine, but reverse osmosis is still a good choice for removing all these potentially harmful substances. » RO water vs. tap filter water: learn which is safer for drinking 4. Dangers of Reverse Osmosis Water While reverse osmosis is highly efficient at removing contaminants and harmful compounds from drinking water, it has its downfalls. Reverse osmosis filtration also removes essential minerals from tap water, including sodium, manganese, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and copper. As some of these minerals are actually good for you, consuming demineralized water can have negative side effects and even cause health issues, as your body doesn't get the nutrients it needs from drinking water. Consuming RO water that's been stripped of minerals for a long period of time can lead to various problems, including gastrointestinal issues. To avoid these dangers, you should remineralize your RO water with solutions like Mayu's Essential Mineral Drops. Adding minerals back to water in the form of drops is among the healthiest ways to remineralize your RO water, and Mayu's Essential Mineral Drops are a convenient way to reap the benefits of RO water without having to worry about the potential dangers. Choose Your RO System Wisely Installing a reverse osmosis system is a great way to ensure you have clean, uncontaminated water. However, it's important to carefully consider the factors that play a role in picking the perfect filter that will improve your water quality while suiting your specific needs. When it comes to reverse osmosis systems, the most important thing to keep in mind is that RO water doesn't contain any minerals and should be remineralized to provide the essential minerals your drinking water should have. Mayu's Essential Mineral Drops are an easy way to achieve this and reap all the benefits of RO water in your home.
