The sudden new interest in Antioxidant Filters reminds me of an actor or musician that seems to come out of nowhere to be a star. How often have we seen a new star suddenly appear who captures the attention of the media and the public? When the star in interviewed, we discover that the performer has been working away at their trade for years.
The elevation of a performer from near obscurity to star status is usually a break through song or screen performance that forces people to take notice.
The free hydrogen technology behind the Antioxidant Filters has been labouring along in near obscurity for ten years. The technology was first introduced ten years ago in the form of a hydrogen stick ten years ago by Dr. Hayashi. The selling price on the hydrogen sticks has been $79 and they have become more and more popular in the last couple of year as people have become aware that they do work to a limited extent.
So why are Antioxidant Filters suddenly bursting on to the scene. The answer comes in four parts.
While hydrogen sticks work to a limited extent, they are a nuisance to work with. You have to stir the sticks around in a glass of water or shake them in a bottle of water for a couple of minutes or let the sticks sit in the water for about 15 minutes. When the stick is finished mineralizing the water, you end up with about 8 to 12 ounces of water. It all seems like a lot of work for one small bottle of water. As a result, most people have chosen to drink bottled water instead.
The Antioxidant Filters hook up to your tap like a regular water ionizer. Water is fed to the Antioxidant Filter using the same type of diverter valve that water ionizers use. While water ionizers use electricity to ionize the water, Antioxidant Filters run water through a magnesium media to achieve the the level of ionization required to provide the same health benefits as those produced by water ionizers.
Antioxidant Filters work. My independent comparison testing indicates that the Antioxidant Filters produce virtually the same results for pH and ORP that the other lead brands produce when it comes to drinking water. My test results have been duplicated by many other people that I trust who have also received test machines. Hydrogen sticks work to a limited extent but I would never use them as a permanent drinking water solution.
Water ionizers don’t purify the source water other than to remove most of the chlorine from the water. Hydrogen sticks don’t purify the source water at all. The new Antioxidant Filters purify the water. Of the two units that I’m aware of, the Alkastream has provided independent lab test results that demonstrate outstanding filtration characteristics. The Revolutionizer has not provided test results yet.
Most water ionizers have been selling in the price range of $2,000 to $4,000. Unless a person attaches a very priority to the health needs, the high cost of water ionizers make them unaffordable. The hydrogen sticks only cost $79, so they are affordable to virtually everyone, but they are not perceived as good value because of the inconvenience factor and the lack of purification, and perhaps fear of the unknown when it comes to the contents of the sticks. At a price of $395, the Antioxidant Filters are affordable to virtually everyone and they will produce up to 1,300 gallons of purified, ionized drinking water for less than 8 cents a gallon.
The Antioxidant Filters work, they are affordable, they are convenient, and we know what is in them. The world’s leading authority on ionized water has documented how and why they work. The news is awesome for consumers, which is why Antioxidant Filters will be a star.
