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!

The Ugly Truths Bottled Water Companies Won’t Tell You

bottle-2032980_1280

“Therefore, while much tap water is indeed risky, having compared available data, we conclude that there is no assurance that bottled water is any safer than tap water.” — The Natural Resources Defense Council

Should we be able to cause substantial environmental damage just for the sake of convenience? Consumers purchasing bottled water and their manufacturers certainly think so. Bottled water can cause harm to your health and to our environment, are costly and are a huge strain on our water and energy sources.

Even with the encouraged efforts and attempts to recycle 38 billion (about 80%) water bottles are ending up in our landfills every year. This would, however, not be as terrible if the bottles decomposed but they don’t. Once the bottled water reaches these landfills, they could take 700 years to even begin to decompose. Ten percent of plastic makes its way into our oceans from being trashed by humans or carried by wind and rain. When this plastic is exposed to sunlight, the plastic elements are broken down and toxic chemicals are released, including BPA. These chemicals are then ingested by ocean animals, which are then ingested by humans.

These bottles, however, are not only damaging our environment but also our economy. Would you be willing to pay money every time you filled your water from the faucet? You may already be paying high prices for simple tap water. According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, around 25% or more of bottled water is the same type of water you already have coming from your faucet. Tap water for all intensive purposes is almost free, meaning that when we purchase bottled water, we are paying around 500 times what it is worth. Does that make any sense to be overpaying by that much, when we could turn on the tap for free? US consumers spend around $11 billion on bottled water, that is $11 billion we are overpaying by simply making the decision to stop buying bottled water.

Bottled water manufacturers try to present their products as an ‘eco-friendly and healthy choice’. Bottled water alone uses 17 million barrels of oil every year; this could fuel 1 million cars for a year. The Environmental Research Letters journal estimated that 32 to 54 million barrels of oil are required to meet the demand of bottled water consumed in the US.

All of this damaging harm to our environment and economy could be halted with a choice. A choice to stop purchasing and consuming bottled water.

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.

For 11 years I have been hauling case after case of water from the store to our gym. Tired of the back and forth, I finally met with Calvin from MN Water. He and his team were fantastic, and their water machine is amazing. Everything we discussed was scheduled, delivered and installed on time and exceeded all of my expectations. I highly recommend them as a company and their product!

Just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know we are very happy with our new machine. The guy who came out and installed it was very professional and friendly. He installed the machine, hooked up the refrigerator and cleaned up after himself. Everybody in our office says how much better the water taste.
