What is Oxygenated Water?

PRACTICE

Oxygenated water is water that has been specially treated using unique proprietary

methods to increase the level of saturated oxygen. The enrichment processes that

create oxygenated water are similar to the way extra amounts of saturated carbon

dioxide are added to soft drinks. Activated Oxygen injection is the last step in our

water purification systems to produce clean healthy water. As soon as oxygenated

water is ingested, the oxygen begins to be absorbed into the bloodstream then

continues on through the digestive system.

One of the most important benefits of drinking water that is oxygenated is that it

aids in strengthening the immune system. Oxygen helps promote the replication of

good bacteria in the body. By drinking water that has been enriched with oxygen, it

creates an environment in your body that promotes a strong immune system.

Higher oxygen levels also offer other benefits, especially while exercising. Oxygen-
enriched water greatly reduces internal muscle burn and enhances overall athletic

performance allowing for longer workouts and faster recovery.

Oxygen injected water has been proven through many significant scientific studies

to provide many overall health and wellness benefits. Our machines provide point of

use healthy, fresh oxygenated water on demand for your whole company!

Are You Drinking Enough Water?

#smm-1

With summer right around the corner and rising temperatures, it is important to stay adequately hydrated! Since up to 60% of your body is water, it is a vital part in ensuring every part of your body is working properly. From flushing waste and toxins to keeping your body at an optimum temperature, water helps to keep us alive!

Throughout the day, your body loses water through urine, breathing and sweat glands. As a result, you have to constantly replenish this fluid, and sugary sodas and coffee do not count toward this requirement. Because of the high caffeine content in these drinks, they can dehydrate your body. Sticking to pure, clean water is best when rehydrating. Once your body has already lost 1-2% of it’s total water content, you will begin to experience your body’s natural mechanism that tells you when you need to replenish your water supply- thirst. However, by the time you are thirsty, your body may already be a bit dehydrated. Studies have indicated that about 66% of us are dehydrated and need to drink more water.

Before your signals that you are thirsty, learn the subtler signs your body sends, indicating you need to drink more water.

  • Fatigue or moodiness
  • Hunger even after a recent meal
  • Infrequent urination, dark concentrated urine

Besides paying attention to the above signs, a good indicator is to look at the color of your urine. You should be consuming enough water so your urine is a light yellow. How often you urinate can also be used to judge your intake of water. A well-hydrated person urinates about 7-8 times per day. If you haven’t gone to the bathroom in several hours, it is a good indication that you may be dehydrated. A good guideline is to drink six- eight, 8-ounce glasses of water every day. Some adults may need more or less, depending on how active and healthy they are and what type of climate they live in. Some good tips for staying hydrated are:

  • Drink a glass after every time you use the bathroom
  • Sip before every meal
  • Keep a glass of water on your bedside table to drink first thing when you wake BEFORE coffee or tea
  • Invest in a reusable water bottle to sip from throughout the day

By depriving ourselves of water, we are continuously damaging our bodies. Listening and being in tune to your body’s signals will help you stay healthier and live happier.

What is Reverse Osmosis?

splashing-splash-aqua-water-67843

If you’ve ever tasted a glass of water that came from a Reverse Osmosis system, you know that crisp, refreshing taste of pure, clean water that is incomparable to anything else.

Reverse Osmosis is defined as “a process by which molecules of a solvent tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated solution into a more concentrated one, thus equalizing the concentrations on each side of the membrane.” Reverse Osmosis is simply the opposite of that process.

Reverse Osmosis or RO is a highly advanced and innovative process of filtering water. An RO filter has a semi-permeable membrane that by applying substantial amounts of pressure, allows clean water molecules to flow through while rejecting contaminants, dissolved solids, and other particles; thus removing sediment, toxic metals, bacteria, and chemicals.

A Reverse Osmosis system works in multiple stages. First, water passes through the particle filter to remove impurities like salt and sediment. Then the water passes through an activated carbon filter that removes minerals and contaminants such as chlorine, mercury and pesticides. The water is then forced through the membrane’s tiny holes where the smallest impurities are trapped and only clean water passes through. Finally, the water flows through another activated carbon filter as a final polish to ensure all contaminants have been removed.

The Reverse Osmosis filtration process is highly effective and proven technology that removes over 99% of harmful contaminates including: Fluoride, Lead, Chlorine, Pesticides, Detergents, Nitrates & Sulfates. In addition to removing harmful contaminants, a Reverse Osmosis system also removes harmless nuisances that may change the look, smell or taste of your water. With an RO system, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that your office is drinking clean, healthy and pure water.

Plastics Can be a Danger to Your Health

Plastics can a danger to your health

Recycled bottled water usage is on the rise.  Most people believe drinking out of recycled plastic bottles is more healthy. But did you know plastics can actually be harmful to your health?  Studies have shown the presence of thousands of man-made chemicals in a single water bottle, chemicals such as BPA.  BPA can easily leach from the plastic into the water you drink and impact the hormones in your body.

Bacteria in the water is also a major concern.  According to a North Dakota State University study, by reusing a plastic drinking water bottle many germs enter into the water you drink through salvia.  Some of the tests on the bottles after many days of use even found the presence fecal matter.

Put down the plastic today! For more information:

Local schools testing for lead in water

North Metro School District Plans New Lead Water Testing

September 23, 2016 06:11 PM

The Centennial School District alerted parents this week that they will begin testing all of their buildings for possible lead in the drinking water.

Earlier this month, the district was highlighted in a 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS investigation that showed they had not tested for lead in drinking water since 1998.

“The Minnesota Department of Health recommends schools test their water supply every five years. This is a guideline, not a requirement. Nevertheless, we are finalizing a vendor to test all water supply sources to identify any issues with the drinking water in our schools,” the district wrote to parents.

“I guess I had assumed that was happening,” Centennial parent Alyssa Donely said. “When I got the email, I was kind of taken back that it hadn’t happened in a long time.”

Our news staff poured over the water testing records of more than 600 Minnesota schools and found at least one out of every four of those schools are not following the state’s recommendations that a school be tested at least once every five years.

I met with both Steve (owner) and Nate (Sales rep) to discuss our best options for a hot/cold water cooler. Not only did we get 2 great machines, the customer service was fantastic. These guys were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, customer focused, and they delivered! The water is fantastic and it's worry free...no more loading bottles of water in the fridge everyday and in an office of 24 people that's a time saver for me! I guess the only suggestion I would have for Nate & Steve is to inform customers (and maybe they do for others) that on Mondays, when the cooler has not been used for 24 hours there is a slight after taste but once it starts getting used that immediately goes away. Love the convenience of paying quarterly as well, saves more time & money. I would definitely recommend Minnesota Water to any individual or organization.

We've had our filtered water systems for several years now and Steve has done a really great job helping us maintain them. He and his team make it truly a worry-free experience with their prompt response to maintenance and service request. Over the years as we grew and added sites in different areas of the country, Steve oversaw the installation of systems at those offices as well. There wasn't much that I had to do, which was definitely good for me being that I was hundreds of miles away. He implemented centralized billing too, so that I didn't have to fool around with multiple different invoices coming from the different servicers. All around, it's been a great experiencing working with Minnesota Water. I'm grateful!

Minnesota Water keeps both of our elder-care facilities perfectly hydrated and well served! We are so grateful for Steve and his team and the way they have handled our unique needs. We did extensive research trying to balance cost and quality, and Minnesota Water came out the clear winner. In all cases, when we have needed immediate service, we are treated like royalty--our seniors love the ease and convenience and taste of the water. I wouldn't go anywhere else for water--and how relieving it is that Steve has heart for his customers and will go the extra distance because he truly cares!

This group has done great work for us. They have really good marketing material and provide great service. As a health care group, we are encouraging our associates to drink more water. MN Water has made that easy for us. They also contribute to the surrounding community and are veteran and female owned. Can't beat that.
