Reverse Osmosis Water
Our FreshPure™ Waters system pre-filters city water, then forces this
filtered water, under very high pressure, through a semi-permeable, reverse
osmosis (RO) membrane. RO membranes imitate the ability of human cells to
filter out impurities. They work on a molecular level to remove up to 99%
of any contaminants and minerals in the water remaining after pre-filtration.
The FreshPure™ RO Water then passes through carbon post-filtration
in order to enhance its taste. As a final safeguard just prior to dispensing,
the water is sterilized by high-intensity ultraviolet light.
For great taste, try FreshPure™ Reverse Osmosis Water. With trace amounts
of minerals, and none of the impurities found in tap water, FreshPure™ RO
Water is our most popular drinking water – a taste favorite! It makes a
superior cup of coffee or tea.
In the deionization process, water first passes through the pre-filtration
and the reverse osmosis systems (above). It is then filtered through
a special deionization medium, which further “polishes” the
FreshPure™ RO Water by removing the 1-2% of trace minerals that may
remain. This deionized water can exceed distilled bottled water in
its purity. Use FreshPure™ DI Water anywhere you would use distilled
Choose FreshPure™ Deionized Water whenever ultra-pure water is desired.
Comparable in purity to distilled water, FreshPure™ DI Water is ideal
for cleansing fasts and special diets. FreshPure™ DI Water is truly water
and nothing but water!
Minerals and Drinking Waters
There is much controversy about minerals in our drinking water. As a
species, humans evolved consuming surface water found in streams, rivers and
lakes. Surface water is naturally low in minerals. When humans began
to dig deep wells, they tapped into groundwater with a much higher mineral
content. These minerals exist in a form and quantity that the body cannot easily
absorb. Consequently, they tend to build up in the organs and tissues,
instead of being utilized by the body. FreshPure™ RO Water contains only
trace levels of minerals (typically 5-20 ppm), similar to the low levels found
in fresh surface water.
Optimally, the minerals needed by the body are obtained from either a diet
rich in whole foods, or through food-based supplements. All FreshPure™ Waters
systems are located inside reputable natural food stores. We encourage you
to contact their knowledgeable associates for more information and for recommendations
on how you can improve your diet, health and well-being. The simple step of
adding high-quality water back into your diet can help improve your health
