More about Structured Water

The best way to describe structured water is to compare it to the water contained in uncontaminated glacier melts and natural springs. Anyone who has had the opportunity to experience water from either of these sources is quick to point out how much better it tastes and feels than regular water available to us! But is structured water real? While a relatively new concept, it is believed that structured water occurs naturally in rainwater, springs, and glaciers.

Supporters of structured water argue it offers enhanced absorption, improved taste, supports heart health, and potentially even combats cancerous growths, but does structured water really work?

Research published in the Oxford Academic Journal of Animal Science found that animals drinking structured water for a month demonstrated notable health benefits. These included an accelerated growth rate, decreased oxidative stress markers, improved blood sugar response, and healthier cholesterol levels. These positive effects have been consistently documented for over two decades.

Corroborating these findings, MedCrave Journal of Applied Biotechnology & Bioengineering reported similar health improvements in humans. Consumption of structured water resulted in a reduction of fat mass, improved kidney function, and enhanced heart rate variability, mirroring the animal study results.

Despite being a relatively new field of research, structured water shows promising potential for hydration and overall health improvement. Even with the skepticism surrounding the 'structured water hoax' allegations, structured water appears to hold substantial health benefits.

Our Methodology

In our assessment of the MAYU Swirl, we explored various aspects to determine the effectiveness of this device in creating structured water. We assessed the device's design, ease of use, and functionality, with a focus on its unique vortex action. This swirling action is claimed to not only aerate and oxygenate the water but also remove various contaminants like chlorine, carbon dioxide, and other volatile organic compounds.

Our evaluation also included a taste test to compare the water before and after the MAYU Swirl process. Furthermore, we considered the device's safety certifications, power requirements, weight, and dimensions to evaluate its overall practicality for everyday use.

By scrutinizing these aspects, we aimed to provide a comprehensive and objective review of the MAYU Swirl's ability to deliver on its promise of creating refreshing, structured water.

Overview of MAYU Swirl

MAYU Swirl is one of the most efficient and convenient ways to create structured water. This device seeks to restore water's natural structure through the use of vortex action, which simultaneously aerates and oxygenates the water. This swirling process also aids in the removal of various contaminants, such as chlorine, carbon dioxide, odors, and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ultimately providing you with revitalized, structured water.


For a starting price of $179, the MAYU Swirl delivers a value-for-money package. The product includes a 1.5L borosilicate glass carafe, a handcrafted porcelain base, a charging cable, a USB adapter, and a stainless steel pouring spout. Users also benefit from a 2-year limited warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee.

User Experience

MAYU Swirl is designed with a user-friendly approach in mind. Its portable design ensures a seamless operation for up to 6 hours on a full charge. It's as simple as filling the carafe, placing it on the base, and touching the power button. The result is an elevated drinking experience within minutes. The device is compact and, due to its long charge, can even serve as a conversation piece that you have on a coffee table in your living room.

In our experience, the water is tastier when it's been structured in MAYU Swirl, and it's much easier to remember to drink it when the eye-catching carafe is right there on the counter, table, or desk.

How It Works

Through its vortex action, MAYU Swirl oxygenates the water, while unwanted elements like chlorine and other VOCs evaporate away. This process yields structured water, identified by a unique H3O2 molecular formula that creates hexagonal clusters, akin to the purity of glacier water.

By enhancing the water's taste and texture, MAYU Swirl encourages healthier hydration habits, leading to potential improvements in overall wellness. Using it eliminates chlorine and reduces bacterial buildup, while simultaneously reducing plastic waste and transportation costs, and contributing to an environmentally friendly future.

Is MAYU Swirl Worth It?

Installing a filtration system and repeatedly buying filters is probably more expensive than most people are willing to pay. Other options like a water delivery service or buying cases of bottled water can be problematic as well. With a single purchase, you can have a beautifully crafted portable device that not only provides water considered to be more beneficial than processed water, you are also reducing plastic and the associated transportation cost.

Clearly, MAYU Swirl is worth it.


What are some lesser-known benefits of structured water?

Thanks to its unique structure, structured water is absorbed more efficiently by the body, leading to superior nutrient absorption and effective cellular detoxification.

Does swirling water increase pH?

Yes, the unique swirling process not only enhances the pH of the water but also elevates its taste.

How long should the water be swirled?

Depending on the fill level of the carafe, a full (1.5L) carafe should ideally be swirled for 5-7 minutes.
