Reverse Osmosis has been known to be a landmark technology when it comes to water purification. As opposed to Osmosis, it involves the movement of water from a medium of higher concentration to a medium of lower concentration through a semi-permeable membrane. This reversal of osmotic pressure is achieved by the application of water with force on the semi-permeable membrane.
RO removes 95% of TDS
The membrane is the most critical part of the purification process. It consists of pores with a diameter in the order of 0.001 microns. Something that is essential to filter out 95% of TDS (Total Dissolved Solids) in water. The only problem is, along with the bad minerals and organic matter, the good minerals found naturally in water are also filtered out. In other words, there is no way the membrane can tell the good ones from the bad ones.
So, what’s the solution?
Thankfully, technology has an answer to this conundrum as well in the form of a TDS modulator or mineralization cartridge. Mineralization cartridges work by infusing the output water of RO with fresh mineral ions before the water is dispensed to you.
Why is Copper important?
In recent years, researchers have identified copper to be a significant mineral that RO filters out. Recommendations to drink water from a copper vessel have flooded the internet. Once they found out that copper is one mineral that can have a wide range of health benefits.
Taking this development into account, RO purifier companies have started manufacturing RO purifiers fitted with a copper mineralizer cartridge that infuses fresh Copper ions into the purified water. Not only does it allow you to rely on the mineralization of your water but also prevents the hassle of storing the water overnight in a copper vessel and consuming it the next day.
If you take the Pureit Copper Water purifier from HUL, it is powered by technology that can smartly sense and schedule copper auto cleaning, ensuring fresh copper infusion each time you use the purifier.
Advantages of using Copper-based water purifiers
Copper kills harmful bacteria
The oligodynamic effect is a biocidal effect of metals, especially heavy metals, that occurs even in low concentrations. Copper has been found out to be having an oligodynamic effect that kills the most common bacteria such as E.coli in our water supply. This in turn prevents the occurrence of gastrointestinal ailments, diarrhea, and dysentery. For those who are not able to afford a high-quality copper-based water purifier, using copper vessels to store and consume drinking water is the easiest way to drink relatively clean water.
Copper keeps the digestive system in good shape
Copper has anti-inflammatory properties that help in the prevention of ulcers and indigestion in your stomach. Thereby improving the absorption of nutrients from your diet. It also detoxifies your liver and kidneys improving their functions of cleansing your internal systems.
Copper helps you heal faster from injuries
Copper is now well-known for its antibacterial, antiviral properties. It clearly helps you heal faster from injuries your body is susceptible to, in your daily life. It helps in the production of new cells, resulting in faster recovery.
Copper slows down aging
Antioxidants are compounds that inhibit oxidation. Oxidation is a chemical reaction that can produce free radicals. Thereby leading to chain reactions that may damage the cells of organisms. The free radical theory of aging (FRTA) states that organisms age because cells accumulate free radical damage over time. Copper with its very good anti-oxidant properties can slow down aging by prevention of fine lines and wrinkles instance.
Copper can help prevent and fight cancer
According to Cancer.gov, free radicals are highly reactive chemicals that have the potential to harm cells. They are created when an atom or a molecule (a chemical that has two or more atoms) either gains or loses an electron (a small negatively charged particle found in atoms). Free radicals are formed naturally in the body and play an important role in many normal cellular processes. At high concentrations, however, free radicals can be hazardous to the body and damage all major components of cells. It includes DNA, proteins, and cell membranes. The damage to cells caused by free radicals, especially the damage to DNA. It may play a role in the development of cancer and other health conditions. Copper with its anti-oxidant properties has been known to battle free-radicals, thus preventing the occurrence of cancers and tumors up to a point.
Copper fight inflammation of joints
Joints are the tissue between your bones. They provide you the support to move freely. Damage to the joints can lead to a lot of pain in your movements and this can either be chronic or acute. It can be mild or severe. Other than this, many different conditions can lead to painful joints, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bursitis, gout, strains, sprains, and other injuries. The anti-inflammatory properties of Copper help fight inflammation that leads to arthritis and inflamed joints.
Copper protects and heals your skin
Exposure to the sun is a chief cause of skin damage. Turns out that copper is an essential element in melanin. Melanic pigmentation is advantageous in many ways: It is a barrier against the effects of the ultraviolet rays of sunlight. On exposure to sunlight, for example, the human epidermis undergoes gradual tanning as a result of an increase in melanin pigment. While melanin helps the body stay safe from sun damage, speeds up wound healing, and covers up scars, the production of new cells is a boon for smooth, blemish-free, and clear skin.
