Will you pay more for water purified using nanotechnology?

You are eating at a fancy restaurant eating your favorite food with your friends. Someone makes a joke while you were just about to swallow and you laugh. Hard. Bits and pieces of food shoot up your mouth. You are choking, though hopefully not to your death because you plan to live a gazillion years.

Your 214-pound physical therapist friend is ready to do the Heimlich on you, and you are worried he’d break a few of your ribs. Right in front of you is a glass with your favorite drink. This is the drink that will save you from further humiliation and cracked ribs.

What is in the glass?

Soda? Iced tea? Orange juice? Milk, or perhaps … beer?

For me, that would be water (did you feel the smooth transition?).

Ladies and gentlemen water is an essential component for survival. Yes, I’m using a big word today because I would like you to take a while and appreciate this wonderful creation, this product of nature that many of us take for granted.

Perhaps you are one of those people are appalled at the idea of taking in this tasteless, odorless fluid. Perhaps you are the type who will only take in carbonated drinks or iced tea, and the idea of water to you is … well, eww.

No judgment here – the choice is yours my friend but personally, I prefer water over anything most of the time.

Not just any type of water, I prefer “tap” water over cold water.

Some would say there are health benefits to drinking water that is not cold, that cold water clogs the arteries. For me, it’s just a matter of preference. Okay if I really think about it, perhaps it’s because I can “feel” the cold in cold water? Like when it passes through my system I can literally feel the cold. Bottomline, that’s my choice.

Thing is, I recently went to an event from Aquabest and Evee. There, I got to know my favorite drink more closely.

Those familiar with their Chemistry should know the terms “pH value” and “TDS”.

What do these two acronyms stand for?

According to Wikipedia nobody really knows the true meaning of “pH”, and its origin is widely debated, and probably best left forgotten. However, it refers to a scale that measures the acidity or basicity of an aquaeous solution – erm, liquid.

The more acidic your liquid is, the lower the pH level, while a higher pH level would mean that it is more basic.

Orange juice, for instance, is quite acidic, and has a pH of 3.5 while soap water has a pH of 10. Pure water has a pH close to 7.

There are claims that acidic water is bad for the health, and that a drinking water with pH level higher than 7 may be beneficial. These claims are being disputed though.

According to one website alkaline water is a scam, that while it does nothing to harm the body it certainly does not help.

TDS, on the other hand, stands for “total dissolved solids”, which refers to any substance that are can be found in your water, usually after filtration. Fresh water, for instance, has a TDS < 1,000 mg per liter while seawater as a TDS > 35,000 mg per liter.

If you want to know more about water, I’ll refer you to this guy working at Aquabest named Dante. He knows a lot of great things about water.

Apparently, the folks over at Aquabest have a way to greatly lower the TDS of water while maintaining a higher pH level using nanotechnology.

As of writing, Aquabest is still in the process of rolling out this new system to the water stations, so as of writing they are unable to provide information on pricing, but the technology involved will definitely push the price higher.

At most water stations, the difference between distilled drinking water and alkaline water ranges from 5-10 pesos. Do you think the additional cost for alkaline water is worth its benefits? Would you be willing to pay extra for water purified using nanotechnology?

People today live very hectic lifestyle having to juggle their careers, social lives, among others. Between rushing to and from meetings or parties, people tend to neglect their health. As a result, most people turn to various diets and therapy to help improve their health. What most people don’t get is that drinking lots of water can just be as effective as fancy therapies and diets in keeping you in shape.

Drinking water helps cleanse and revitalize the body sweeping away toxins and impurities in the body. Water also helps keep our energy and alertness levels up all day. Overall, drinking lots of water can lead to greater personal wellness and well-being. However, not all water is the same some are better than others.

Aquabest Granderized water in particular is radically different from other types of drinking water being not only clean but also healthy. Utilizing four unique technologies Grander, Tanwing, Nanogen, and Reverse Osmosis; Aquabest alters the very nature of water to make it better.

Tanwing Technology and Reverse Osmosis are filtration technologies that help eliminate practically all contaminants in the water making them safe and clean. Tanwing works by utilizing two wavelengths of ultraviolet radiation to help eliminate all biological contaminants. At the same time, reverse osmosis filters water at the nanometer level far smaller than a strand of hair to ensure that all impurities are filtered out.

The Nanogen and Grander Technologies work at the molecular level to infuse health giving properties to the water by affecting the molecular structure of the water. Nanogen is a Korean technology that utilizes nanotechnology to neutralize pure water’s inherent acidity. Acidic water is supposed to be a contributing factor to some diseases. Grander Technology from Austria alters the molecular structure of water to improve body absorption.

Normal water molecules are large and irregularly shaped. This causes uneven rates of absorption into the body making it inefficient and disorganized. With Grander Technology the water molecules are compressed and given a uniform shape. This facilitates faster and more efficient absorption into the body.

Overall, Aquabest Granderized Water improves on the inherent cleansing and rejuvenating qualities of water. Each drop reaches deeper into the core of every cell in our bodies allowing them to perform their functions better. Drinking Aquabest Granderized Water will rejuvenate the body at its very core helping people look and feel better.
