Reverse osmosis water units are important in survival situations or in war zones where the usual water infrastructure has broken down, for example. The idea is that dirty water is pumped through a semi-permeable membrane, which removes salt, some bacteria and other contaminants.
Want the Good News First?
The good news? It works. Nearly everything is removed from the water. The bad news? That includes the good stuff — the elements we need our drinking water to contain.
That’s not a problem in the very short term. However, drinking reverse osmosis water as our main source of hydration carries a real risk of denying our bodies the essential minerals we need to thrive.
WHO Isn’t Happy?
That isn’t a negligible risk either. In 2004, the World Health Organization (WHO) reported that long-term consumption of Reverse Osmosis water, “has a definite adverse influence on the animal and human organism.”
“Demineralised water that has not been remineralized, or low-mineral content water – in the light of the absence or substantial lack of essential minerals in it – is not considered ideal drinking water.”

Scariest Water Ever?
It’s not just that we need minerals in our water. Reverse osmosis water has a slightly more sinister side. Like something from a spooky B-movie, it’s dead water that wants to reanimate itself again. Once it finds itself inside your body, it targets the minerals in your teeth and bones in order to steal them.
It sounds incredible, but it’s true. Reverse osmosis water leaches minerals from your body to try to stabilize and remineralize itself — depleting your supplies in the process.
Minerals from Your Water Ionizer
In contrast, a Tyent Water Ionizer produces naturally mineral-rich, ionized water to energize and support good health.
Tyent Water is also packed with hydrogen, the element that scientists are increasingly convinced is key to dramatically improving health and medical end points.
