After 65 days at sea, surrounded by salt water, without a drop of land or fresh water in sight, I bet the pilgrims couldâ€™ve used a tall glass of alkaline water. The hydrogen and antioxidant-rich alkaline water wouldâ€™ve given them an ultra boost of hydration as they set foot in the New World.
Unfortunately for the first pilgrims, alkaline water ionizers didnâ€™t exist in 1620, but, thankfully, they do exist today. This Thanksgiving, as we consider the things that are most important to us, make sure to give thanks for alkaline water!
Water ionizers are wonderful machines that take normal tap water and turn it into delicious, healthy alkaline water. By siphoning water through a series of filters and charged plates, Tyent’s water ionizers are able to remove dangerous impurities from water while imparting a negative charge. The result is alkaline water with a higher pH than normal water which gives alkaline water it’s signature antioxidant benefits.
Antioxidants are good for the human body because they help prevent oxidation by free radicals. Among other things, cell damage caused by oxidizing free radicals is responsible for aging and cancer so it is important for people to reduce the number of free radicals in their bodies. One way to do that is by eating and drinking antioxidant-rich foods and alkaline water.
Water Ionizers Help the Planet
There are two reasons that bottled water is bad for the environment:
- Energy is Wasted
â€śMaking bottles to meet Americaâ€™s demand for bottled water uses more than 17 million barrels of oil annually, enough to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year.â€ť (Not including oil used for transportation)
– Pacific Institute, 2007
- Plastic Pollution
â€śAmericans used about 50 billion plastic water bottles last year. However, the U.S.â€™s recycling rate for plastic is only 23 percent, which means 38 billion water bottles â€“ more than $1 billion worth of plastic â€“ are wasted each year.â€ť
– Fast Company Magazine, 2007
A water ionizer and refillable bottle can help to reduce the environmental effects of bottled water production and if saving the planet is not enough for you, water ionizers can also save you some dough.
Alkaline Water Ionizers Save You Money
Water ionizers produce an endless stream of filtered alkaline water that can be used to refill bottles for a few pennies. Regular use of a water ionizer will save you hundreds of dollars each year as compared to bottled water.
â€śAt an average cost of $1.22 per gallon, consumers are spending 300 times the cost of tap water to drink bottled water.â€ť

Give Thanks for Alkaline Water
The pilgrims didnâ€™t have the luxury of alkaline water but, luckily for us, access to alkaline water has never been greater. For your health, for the planet, for your wallet, give thanks for alkaline water!
