The natural bio ceramic media in phwatr produces alkaline water to naturally help balance a body’s pH, ionizes the water for a powerful antioxidant effect, reduces water cluster size for super hydration and restores beneficial minerals such as calcium and magnesium. Our enhanced technology ensures the water is extremely efficient at hydration and powerful in antioxidant capabilities. The antioxidant properties in phwatr are an essential component. While some may be alkaline, very few water products in the market are alkaline and antioxidant.
phwatr products are made in Canada of imported components, independent 3rd party lab tested, allowing us to monitor the exceptional quality of our products.
The cartridge significantly reduces chlorine, chloramines, DBP (disinfection by-products such as trihalomethanes, haloacetic acids, bromate, chlorite), herbicides, pesticides, VOCs (volatile organic compounds), taste & odor.
How do our cartridges beneficially alter water?
Raises the pH to 9.5+
Creates antioxidant properties
Creates negative oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) values
Restores beneficial minerals such as calcium and magnesium
What do other leading filters do?
Other leading filters work to reduce chlorine and may reduce the TDS (total dissolved solids).
Below are external links to studies published in medical journals that reference the science behind our filters. We strive to find articles that are available online, either through the publishing journal or a third party full-text provider.
Acid-base balance and hydration status following consumption of mineral-based alkaline bottled water
STUDY BACKGROUND: The present study sought to determine whether the consumption of a mineral-rich alkalizing (AK) bottled water could improve both acid-base balance and hydration status in young healthy adults under free-living conditions. The AK water contains a naturally high mineral content along with Alka-PlexLiquid, a dissolved supplement that increases the mineral content and gives the water an alkalizing pH of 10.0.
Supplementation with alkaline minerals reduces symptoms in patients with chronic low back pain
STUDY BACKGROUND: The cause of low back pain is heterogeneous, it has been hypothesized that a latent chronic acidosis might contribute to these symptoms. It was tested whether a supplementation with alkaline minerals would influence symptoms in patients with low back pain symptoms. In an open prospective study 82 patients with chronic low back pain received daily 30 g of a lactose based alkaline multimineral supplement (Basica®) over a period of 4 weeks in addition to their usual medication. Pain symptoms were quantified with the “Arhus low back pain rating scale” (ARS).
