Comments You can pour your RO water into the pitcher and have great water that is both clean and remineralized.
Bicarbonate is an incredibly effective buffer which means it will quickly modify the pH to the level the body requires. The pancreas dumps bicarbonate into the small intestine if the incoming pH fluid varies from a 1 pH level.
That is why every RO system seller takes a Cal/Mag supplement of some sort.
VP of a water company that sells tens of thousands of RO systems per year. Well, the thinking has changed day as people now understand that drinking RO water long time will deplete your body of calcium and magnesium unless you use supplements. On top of this, the guy ld me I was an idiot for believing that long time consumption of RO water without taking some sort of Cal/Mag supplement was unhealthy., drinking water devoid of minerals will cause long time health problems. You are correct that the membrane in a RO system is essentially a very fine filter.
It has nothing to do with the acid in your stomach. With RO water, the filter is really a dispenser as the equation filtration part is done by the RO system. RO water was removing essential nutrients and I am convinced that is what caused the nightly cramping. Anyway, one bicarbonate teaspoon mixed in a glass of water will neutralize more acid that 10000 pH liters 10 water as long as water ain’t a buffer. Notice, after a couple weeks of drinking only RO water I started cramping nightly! Fact, feeling horrible and concerned. Now pay attention please. In the short run, it doesn’t matter what any pH is food or drink that you put in your stomach as the body uses bicarbonate as a buffer in the GI tract. Basically, the cramping stopped within the week! We left to my daughters house to visit for three weeks and I started drinking regular tap water and smart water in bottles. For instance, tDS before a RO system will typically have higher TDS after the RO system than an entirely different source water that begins with a lower TDS. When we put in a RO on our fridge I started drinking what I thought was good water.
Maxx for a couple of years in my kitchen and my family loves it.
The water ionizer industry has earned a bad reputation for slimy behavior among the various owners companies. There are also many places where drinking well water without a RO system can cause serious illness. It really depends upon what’s in the source water. That’s right! Buy a low cost, I’d say if you need a less expensive solution. You are wise to be skeptical as long as the internet has lots of agenda driven advice. On top of that, we have the water delivered from a local water company who provides us with reverse osmosis 5gal containers that we mount on a water cooler machine. Seriously.
If you are worried about minerals -get them from food/supplements.
That said, the body doesn’t leach calcium out of teeth and bones and magnesium thyroid out since If a RO system must be used it’s essential to remineralize the water. Why will you injest poisons just to get a tiny percentage of minerals, right? Anyone believing what the WHO says about health is simply naive. They say injedting fluoride and getting vaccines is fantastically healthy! Another question is. If the soil is depleted of minerals what makes you think tap water is beneficial, right? With all that said. Do you know an answer to a following question. It’s a well rO takes out the poisons.
