Did you know most of the beverages you consume in your daily life are oxidants? Every sip that you're taking from your coffee or favourite drink is compromising your health and accelerating the aging effects. One of the methods scientists use to measure the antioxidant ability of liquids is through “Oxidation Reduction Potential” better known as O.R.P.
We've compiled a small sample of beverages just so you know what your body is absorbing:
The higher positive(+) numbers = unhealthy
The higher negative(-) numbers = healthy
Here's how alkaline levels affect your health: pH allows scientists to measure if things are acidic (harmful) or alkaline (healthy). A lot of ailments such as diabetes, arthritis and even obesity thrive in acidic environments. The more acidic your body is the more likely you'll have a hard time living a healthy life. Most of the foods and drinks we enjoy (meats, junk food, alcohol) are acidic.
If we cut down on the harmful foods and consume more healthy foods you could turn your health around. Unfortunately, with our modern lifestyles that option is difficult to achieve. That's why water is so effective. After all, our bodies are roughly 70% comprised of it.
Acidity and disease
Many diseases such as diabetes, arthritis and cancer thrive in acidic environments. This means the more acidic your body is the more vulnerable it is to ailments. It doesn't help that most of foods and drinks we enjoy such as meats, junk food, and alcohol are acidic. Nor does it help that according to many scientists today, the stress of modern life is a super-acidifier.
Alkalinity and healthy bodies
Balancing out the acidic foods we eat is the key to healthy disease free bodies. Some fruits and most vegetables are alkaline, so consuming more of these foods will help offset the acidity level in your body.
Eating right is obviously the key to health, but unfortunately, with our modern lifestyles, we need all the help we can get.
Alkaline Ionised Antioxidant Water
May be the answer to balancing acidity in your body and feeling great. Our bodies roughly 70% comprised of fluids. What makes more sense? Drinking water or changing your diet (to fruits and vegetables)?
Alkaline water may assist in neutralizing the acidity in your body and bringing it back to its healthy balance.
Becoming healthy could be that easy.
The AlkaStream is comprised of 8 filter layers that delivers the cleanest possible water out of your tap. Unlike many water filters on the market, the AlkaStream absorbs excessive minerals, and actually remineralises with healthy alkaline minerals in so your body receives all the proper nourishment. You've never tasted water quite like this.

AlkaStream’s unique water is created through 8 layers of filtration and energising media working synergistically. The process is based off of scientifically proven research by Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, Director of the Water Institute of Japan. For a full breakdown of each layer and their functions please see below:
8. Neodymium Magnetic Field to stabilize the IONIC charge and reduced molecular size.
7. Catalytic Carbon and KDF to improve final taste and remove unwanted non-beneficial trace elements.
6. Trace Minerals and Far Infrared energise and soften the water with negative hydrogen ions.
5. Energizing Media creates anti-oxidants and reduces the size of water molecules thereby increasing hydration.
4. KDF and Magnesium in an activated carbon media removes heavy metals such as lead and mercury and creates free hydrogen.
3. Catalytic Carbon reduces organic contaminants, colour, odour, taste, pesticides, THMs, chlorine and VOCs.
2. Ion Exchange Media (NSF approved) reduces hard water and neutralizes fluoride. NSF is a non-profit organization which promotes and supports research and education in the sciences.
1. Ceramic Filter Membrane stops all sediment, and bacteria over 0.2 micron in size.

- Can I connect it in-line to my cold water pipe under the sink?
- Can I connect it in-line to my existing RO?
An AlkaStream filter will last 6 months – depending, as always, on water conditions. When the filter is replaced (a 3 minute job) your AlkaStream returns to full filtration, pH and ORP power. Please note that filter life always depends on input water quality. The AlkaStream has as its first stage, a ceramic membrane that halts sediment entry. Most filters simply let it in and replace the filter when flow slows up due to accumulated sediment. The AlkaStream filter can be removed and ‘sanded’ down with the included cleansing sheet to remove all sediment and restore flow.
Connected to your faucet with the robust steel diverter valve, the alkaStream may be activated by a simple twist of the diverter lever. This passes water from the faucet into the AlkaStream, through the filter and out into your glass.
In a special laboratory created ‘witches’ brew’ of pesticides, volatile organics, fluoride chlorine, and minerals, the AlkaStream changed a pH of 6.5 to an output pH 9.5. Please be aware that like any water ionizer, pH output is always dependent upon the mineral makeup of the input water. However the advantage of the AlkaStream is that in areas of hard water with excessive levels of alkaline minerals, it will reduce these minerals and then re-infuse the water with lower, healthier levels of alkaline minerals (as well as micro clustering and ionizing the water). See the results here
The AlkaStream has two filter choices; hard water and soft water. The hard water option uses ion exchange resin, which performs a dual function.
(a) it reduces the level of total dissolved solids and
(b) It absorbs fluoride.
Please note that ion exchange technology works to absorb fluoride until it can absorb no more. At that time it can release fluoride, and will no longer absorb it. For this reason we recommend a six month filter changeover.
The soft water filter removes less fluoride.
The hard water filter is recommended for water that exceeds a TDS of 300. In this situation it will absorb minerals in the water and elute its own level of minerals in alkaline form. This is in contrast to a standard water ionizer that concentrates minerals as it separates acid and alkaline. In hard water areas this means calcium may cause problems including clouding of glassware, accretion in kettles etc for electronic water ionizer users.
Yes, the AlkaStream can be connected to your RO in place of your faucet. It will add powerful alkalizing and ionizing abilities to your ‘neutral’ RO water.
Yes, the AlkaStream can be attached but you'll need a optional kit available form your dealer plus a small hole in your sink bench top.
