What Is Reverse Osmosis Water?
Reverse osmosis was is water that has been purified using a deionization (also called demineralization) process that forces water molecules through a Reverse Osmosis membrane. The process removes all molecules that are larger than the water molecule effectively removing impurities, contaminants and pollutants resulting in pure drinking water. The process also removes all chemicals that are normally used to clean and purify water by eliminating microorganisms like bacteria.
What Are The Dangers?
Unfortunately, the process does not only remove harmful molecules but also essential nutrients or minerals like calcium and magnesium. This can result in severe calcium and magnesium deficiency which in turn results in a range of health issues. These health conditions appear in a relatively short period of time, normally within a few weeks or months of drinking only pure reverse osmosis water.
The most common complaints include:
– Muscle cramps and weakness
– Fatigue and tiredness
– Cardiovascular conditions and disorders
These are very serious side effects and can result in long-term health problems.
Even more worrying is the fact that the water does not just lack essential minerals but dilutes minerals that are already present in the body. This effectively leaches the minerals out of the body into the water, further resulting in calcium and magnesium deficiencies.
The leaching effect means that increasing mineral intake through food sources and supplements is basically ineffective at resolving the deficiency. The process contributes to the speed at which the side effects and health problems appear.
A lack of calcium and magnesium disrupts the electrolyte balance in the human body. This means that other essential minerals and nutrients can take over leading to an excess of these minerals (such as potassium and sodium) in the body which carries another set of dangerous side effects and symptoms.
Water is essential to just about every function within the human body right down to maintaining the integrity of cell structures. Electrolytes are just as essential to the body’s metabolism and ability to maintain homeostasis. In effect, drinking reverse osmosis can adversely affect, disrupt or compromise the normal functioning of every organ in the body.
While chemicals used to clean water may also be detrimental to health, the effects take much longer to appear and the dangers or risks are not as severe as those associated with drinking reverse osmosis water. Purer water simply does not mean healthier water.
At Chanson Water Canada, we provide Canadians with the best water ionizing equipment so everyone can have access to good, filtered drinking water. We specialize in alkaline water which has been scientifically backed to prove that is better than drinking regular tap water. Alkaline water is less acidic than regular water as it has more properties of alkalizing components like silica, potassium, magnesium, and calcium. Alkaline water has been proven to eliminate acid reflux, absorb nutrients better, and balance urinary pH which is great for your digestive health. If you have more questions about alkaline water, please call us at 1-888-666-0837 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
