Reverse osmosis is a popular form of water purification in which feed water passes through a membrane and is separated into filtered water (permeate) and waste (brine). Although reverse osmosis filters waste from the water, it also captures all the essential minerals present as well.
Recent epidemiological studies suggest that water purified through reverse osmosis may increase the risk for cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, coronary heart disease, and gastric ulcers. The increased health risk is due to the lack of necessary minerals that are usually present in natural water.
Our bodies require minerals to increase metabolism. It is fundamental in the growth and development of children. The main minerals contained in natural water are Calcium and Magnesium. Calcium makes up our bones and teeth. Lack of calcium intake has been linked with osteoporosis, nephrolithiasis, and colorectal cancer. Magnesium, on the other hand, acts as a fundamental element found in intracellular fluid. Magnesium deficiencies are associated with endothelial dysfunction, increased vascular reactions, and decreased insulin sensitivity.
After RO Biocera Alkaline Water Filter eliminates the problem with demineralized water by adding in the essential minerals to soft water. The Biocera After RO filter uses state of the art Biocera Balls developed to input essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium to make clean, healthy mineral water.
