Ready for some water 101?
FACT: Not all drinking water is created equal!
Let’s talk about pH and ORP.
If some of you are scratching your heads here, allow me to explain …
You may or may not have noticed that different brands of bottled water have varied ranges of pH. The power or potential of Hydrogen (pH) is a measure of acidity or alkalinity of water soluble substances. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 with a pH of 7 being neutral, values below 7 indicate acidity and values above indicate alkalinity. (I’ll give you a few minutes to go and check the labels of your bottled water NOW 😉 )
“The ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) is a measurement of the presence of oxidizing agents in drinking water. A positive ORP indicates oxidation (aging/deterioration) potential whereas a negative ORP indicates antioxidant (anti-aging/beneficial) potential. Most tap and bottled water typically have a positive ORP.”
It has been argued that the best water to drink would have a high pH (alkaline) and a negative ORP (antioxidant).
So how do we get our hands on this?
Alkaline antioxidant water
Enter DYLN …. pour any purified or filtered water into this surgical-grade 316 stainless steel bottle and it will create alkalized antioxidant water in minutes.
It will decrease the ORP to a negative level in as little as 5 minutes and it will take 15 to 25 minutes for the water to reach an optimal level of over 8 pH.
How does it do this?
The bottle comes with a VitaBead diffuser and a tool piece to attach or detach it. The VitaBeads are made up of a blend of all natural minerals including magnesium, tourmaline, zinc and silica. This is what enhances and revitalises the water.
It’s interesting to know that water comes in clusters of molecules and these minerals help to reduce the cluster count which allows for easier absorption into the cells resulting in faster and more effective hydration.
The diffuser has a lifespan of up to 400 uses after which you will have to purchase a new diffuser to continue enjoying optimal benefits.
Once you purchase a DYLN bottle, you can register it online to track your usage and you will be reminded when the diffuser needs to be replaced.
Why I love my DYLN ….
I know drinking water is so important for you but I never seem to drink enough of it. I’m very active, always on the go but sadly I forget to hydrate effectively and suffer the repercussions (fatigue, headaches … especially in the summer months). This bottle is helping to kick my bad habit and is fast becoming my BFF. I’m now up to drinking 2 x 750ml bottles a day, which for me is a huge deal. The alkalised and antioxidant water seems to taste better too, almost sweet?
I love that the bottle is made of high quality stainless steel (NOT plastic) which is corrosion resistant and does not leach.
Oh and we’re currently doing up a house and in an attempt to become more eco-friendly and economical, we are going to do away with buying plastic bottled water and get a Reverse Osmosis system put in. But whilst RO systems are great at removing impurities from our drinking water, in the process they usually also tend to remove some beneficial minerals. I thought the DYLN bottle and it’s magic beads would be perfect to bring our RO water back to “life”.
I have to say that I do feel more energized after consistently drinking 2 x 750ml bottles of water a day for over a week. Is it just because I am drinking more? Is it because of the type of water I am drinking? I honestly don’t know. But what I do know for sure, is that I’ll be sticking to my DYLN for a long long time.
Want one? If you’d like to get your own DYLN bottle you can do so locally from Just Organic in Main Street, Naxxar.
