Testing, only as good as…

What if we gauged marathoners by how well they ran a 100 meter race? Would that to be a sound predictor for how they would perform over 26 miles? How about a marriage based on the first date? Or what if a movie was given awards based on the first and last 10 minutes only?  Nothing in between was viewed.

Would anyone who suggested these ideas be given any credence?

No. But somehow it works when selling water filters.

Milk – Does it do a body good?

Late last year, a study came out drawing conclusions on some of the health benefits typically associated with drinking milk.  Things we constantly hear like “builds strong bones and teeth”.Gotmilk

Or in the sake of time…a few highlights from the study.

Keep it between the white lines

After 4 years in this natural alkaline water world and a few years before that with electric ionizers, we’ve lost track of the number of times we’re asked, “will this fix (fill in the blank symptom)?Flat_Road

Our standard answer has always been a form of “we don’t know”.

Not because we haven’t had tons of people with nite and day improvements or because we don’t think the water can help, but because there are countless variables that contribute to our … Read the rest

Are You Magnesium Deficient?

Spinach

An important read for those serious about their health as magnesium often gets overlooked, so much that it has been dubbed the “invisible deficiency”.

“Magnesium is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in your body. It affects everything from your heartbeat to your muscles to your hormones,” says Dr. Danine Fruge, Associate Medical Director at the Pritikin Longevity Center in Miami, Florida.

Fortunately, if you’re drinking lots of Vitev water, you’re already on the right track as it’s one of … Read the rest

Vitev is expanding to Asia

Over the summer and fall, we worked closely with a group based in Hong Kong.  They contacted us because of a growing interest in both clean water (many places in Asia are absolutely horrible) as well as alkaline water.

After several months of testing, we solidified an agreement and began customizing our MAXX system for deployment across Asia.  Different connectors, low pressure pumps, smaller tank options, etc.

Those first systems arrived in Hong Kong a little over a … Read the rest

Celebrity Chef Pete Evans stance on Fluoride

pete-evans-fluorideCelebrity Chef Pete Evans from “My Kitchen Rules”, has apparently been causing quite a ruckus with some doctors with his stance against fluoride and by joining the rebel alliance: Fluoride Free WA.

We get asked about fluoride removal quite often as it’s a growing concern for many people so we figured this would be something worth sharing. Regardless of your stance, it’s a good read for those who are interested as there are always two sides to a story … Read the rest

10 cans of Coke. Every day. 1 whole month. Insanity.

While we doubt any of you in your right mind would try this in any lifetime, this just helps illustrate the effects of soda on a human body.

Trying to lose weight and get healthy?

Here’s a tip: change your diet, which includes a big portion of what you’re drinking. Soda and even juice have so much sugar you might as well just be eating doughnuts for meals. Exercise is important but you’ll be surprised how much your body … Read the rest

Fluoride Perspective

We also want to make sure you are aware of some common misconceptions and things we didn’t even realize until talking with the experts who make the filtration media.  It … Read the rest

Why is your REMIN more expensive than others I’ve seen?

Over the last few years, we’ve seen a growing interest from reverse osmosis users who want an alkaline water. They’ve begun to realize that in an effort to eliminate the bad, they’ve also been drinking a water void of the good as well.  

So they want to put the minerals back in.

The market has responded to this need with a flood of “alkaline” or “remineralizing” cartridges.  Huge companies like Culligan, Rainsoft, etc have jumped in because their customers are … Read the rest

Alkaline water with no bells or whistles

Most of us go through an evolution where we think our parents are the greatest thing ever.  As we hit our teens, that opinion changes by 180 degrees.  But thankfully, over time, it swings back in their favor. 

I remember my Dad saying years ago how he didn’t want anything electronic when he was shopping for a new truck.  He wanted to open his door with a key, not a remote, crank the window down and flip a lever to … Read the rest
