WATER HEALTH CONTRIBUTES TO BRAIN HEALTH
Purified Water, Healthy Body
Are you aware that 75% of your brain is composed of water, likewise 83% of your blood, 75% of your muscles and 22% of your bones? Water also has a massive role to play in many of your bodily functions.
Surely then, you’d want to ensure the water going into your body is as clean and pure as possible. We hear a great deal today about our municipal water not being completely clean and safe to drink and our rivers, dams and oceans being polluted in a myriad of ways. So how do we ensure the water we are putting into our significantly water-based bodies is pure and healthy for us to drink?

Fortunately companies like Owen Purifiers have developed systems to answer this precise question. This South African company uses a Reverse Osmosis (RO) process that is used for waste water treatment, purification of contaminated water and is even able to produce energy. RO is, in addition, one of the primary processes that makes desalination (i.e. removing salt from sea water) possible.
It has been suggested that ‘the next world war will be fought over the availability of water.’ This is a possibility as in recent times water issues, such as contamination, have become major national and global problems. Water represents life and with threats such as climate change, over- population and other environmental issues, water becomes one of the foremost environmental areas to focus on.
How exactly does RO address most of the issues arising from contaminated water? The RO process takes place when specific pressure is applied to a highly concentrated solution, causing the solvent to pass through a membrane into the lower concentrated solution, leaving a higher concentration of solute on one side and only solvent on the other side. Globally RO is known as the most effective method of purifying water, with nano-filtration and ultra- filtration coming in as the close second and third methods respectively. A good RO system can remove contaminants such as arsenic, nitrates, sodium, copper, lead, organic chemicals, and the municipal additive of fluoride.
Some more Interesting Facts about Reverse Osmosis:
If the water quality in your home contains inorganic contaminants, Reverse Osmosis is an excellent method
to treat it. Some RO units can remove 90% or more of certain inorganic chemicals.
‘High purity’ home drinking water can only be produced through two types of systems: Steam Distillation or Reverse Osmosis.
RO, when combined with a simple carbon filter* WILL provide drinking water which is 98-99% free of organic chemicals, such as chlorine, free ammonia, fluoride, arsenic, magnesium among others.
Some Advantages of using Reverse Osmosis:
Friendly to the environment.
Uses a minimal amount of power.
Can be used for both domestic and industrial applications.
Removes dissolved minerals and other contaminants that cause unpleasant odours, tastes or colours of water.
The purified water tastes pleasant.
Removal of dissolved minerals, metals and other particles benefits household and commercial plumbing systems as there are no contaminants in the water to corrode pipes or form sediments.
Assists in removing harmful bacteria and viruses from municipal and borehole water systems.
