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

“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.
