Why Is Ionized Water Better Than Bottled?

If you're one of those who generally drinks bottled mineral water in preference to tap water then you really should consider switching to alkaline ionized drinking water instead.

As a rule, most bottled mineral waters are pH neutral or acidic and come to you having been sat in plastic bottles for weeks or even months. Add to this the overall cost of bottled water and we can quickly see how using a water ionizer makes both practical and financial sense.

Here's The Maths - Hold on to Your Hats Because it's Pretty Amazing...Ionized Waterater

What we're going to do here is give you two examples. The first example simply compares the cost, to a family of 4, of consuming 6 litres of mineral water a day versus drinking the same 6 litres of water from a Jupiter Science / Emco Tech ionizer.

The second example is perhaps more realistic, because it assumes that the family of 4 uses their ionizer not only drinking water but also for washing vegetables and using the acid water for cleaning etc. Clearly, few people use bottled mineral water for food preparation as well as drinking because of the cost - but many people would like to if they could afford it, so we've done the comparison, just to see what results we get.

This is what you get with ionized water - the ability to use water that is antioxidant, alkaline and oxygenated, for both drinking and food preparation!

Comparison of Drinking 6 Litres of Mineral Water Per Day Vs. Using An Ionizer for the Same Amount of Drinking Water

It is recommended that we all drink 2 litres of water per day. However, we know that most of us don't do that. To account for this and to show the remarkable savings you can make by switching to using a water ionizer instead of bottled water, we have assumed only 6 litres of drinking water is consumed between a family of 4. They really should drink more water - but even so, look at the savings!

Comparison of Using An Ionizer for Family Drinking Water As Well As Food Preparation and Cleaning Vs. Using Bottled Mineral Water for the Same Purpose

Here, we assume using a more realistic 10 litres per day from your ionizer used for supplying all the family's drinking water as well as some general food preparation such as rinsing fruit and vegetables. See how the price per litre comes right down and the incredible saving you make were you to use bottled mineral water in the same way.

Plastic Bottles And Chemical Leaching

We're all aware of the concerns regarding chemical leaching from plastics into our food supply and many people work very hard to avoid using or consuming food from plastic packaging.

However, bottled water, one of the most widely consumed foodstuffs, is almost ALWAYS supplied in plastic bottles!
