WHY CLEAN WASSER, BECAUSE:
- On the one hand our activity leads to the pollution of ground water;
on the other hand our level of ecological consciousness is growing. We
want to breathe fresh air, to eat clean food and to drink clean water.
Clean water in the literal, not in the figurative sense, water that
contains only the water molecules, not a solution containing hormones,
medicines, dioxins and other harmful substances;
- We care about our health and want to live a long life. With time, as
our bodies become sluggish, we can develop serious problems with our
health, and although we try to drink two liters a day, we don't always
feel the result. That's why the quality of the water we drink plays
such an important role. The cleaner the water is, the better is its
cleaning effect. As Louis Pasteur said: "A man drinks 90% of his
- We want to enjoy what we drink. The taste of clean and clear,
reverse-osmosis water is comparable with the water from melted snow.
Tea, coffee, soups and drinks made with this water taste better and are
healthier because of the better extraction of flavor and nutrients.
ONE FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION addresses the
content of minerals and micro-elements in water.
The minerals in water are a solution of salts from the earth's crust.
One absorbs, however, bio-available minerals and microelements
primarily through solid food, because these minerals are mainly in the
form of chelat-compounds. The solubility of the microelement is better,
because of the chelat-compound. (Chelats are metalorganic complexes, in
which the metal cation is connected in at least two places with another
bigger organic molecule.) The human organism has limited potential to
build chelats, that's why we get only 5% of minerals and microelements
from water, the other 95% is obtained from the food in our diet (bread,
milk, meat, vegetables and fruits).
Consider these examples: A glass of
contains 100-times more calcium than a glass of city water. This
calcium is better accepted by our body because of the fact that milk
makes it bio-available.
Iron is an important component of a human body. But we can't eat iron.
Even if we were to suck on an iron nail, we would not reap any benefit.
Iron must be taken by the body and be transported in the form of a

What is the most prevalent element in the human body? Water! Nothing
"runs" in our body without water. It is not only the transporting,
cooling, clearing and solubility substance of our body, it is also the
primary building material of the cells. On average, 70 % of human body
consists of water. Some organs contain less, others more. Our brain,
for example, consists of 90% water. Therefore it's not surprising that
a deficiency of water influences our mind and intelligence. In Germany
there is now an initiative "Drink in the Lesson". The idea is to allow
and encourage children and teenagers to drink more water, even in the
classroom and during lessons, something which has been forbidden in a
number of schools.

28.08.06-Ecotest Finds Harmful Substances
New Sorts Of Mineral Water- Frankfurt/Main (AP) In spite of
the "wellness" inscription, a lot of new, aromatic types of mineral
water contain, according to a research by the "Ökotest"
magazine, dangerous components. 5 out of 20 tested products were marked
as "insufficient". None of the types were marked as "very good". Only 3
out of 20 test products were marked as "good". According to the report,
in four of the tested drinks a higher level of the cancer-causing and
elementary cell -harming substance benzol was found. "Ökotest"
bases this on the maximum allowable level of one microgram per
liter.There is at this time no legal limit set for benzol in dewy
drinks. According to the report, eight types of mineral water contained
the preservatives natrium or potassium benzoate, substances which,
under certain conditions can lead to the formation of benzol. Four
drinks contained a higher level of uranium. This heavy metal can lead
to chronic poisoning and injury to organs. The article also criticizes
many products containing flavoring agents and enhanced sweeteners. All
of the products examined were found to have an inferior taste.
17.01.05-Lead In Drinking Water-
23,700 water samples were tested by "Stiftung Warentest" in the last 10
years for heavy metals. An environmental map with the theme "lead in
drinking water" was made based on the test results. Outcome: the
problem of lead in drinking water still exists in many regions. This is
especially true for regions in the north and east of Germany, including
Berlin. These regions show that more than 5% of tested water shows a
lead count that exceeds maximum allowable levels. "Stiftung Warentest"
online explains, counsels, and offers a free download of the
environmental map. The drinking water analysis gives a clear picture of
the pollution levels.
under certain conditions this water can also be used for diabetics,
cosmetic needs (crème preparation, care of the hair and
skin), gastronomy needs (preparation of ice and drinks), care of plants
and aquarium, and also as a basis for the preparation of
iodine-containing drinks to compensate for the lack of iodine.

double reverse-osmosis "baby water" is offered by various firms. Food
experts unanimously agree that water for young children should contain
the least amount of minerals. Because of rapid growth a child's kidneys
must work very hard and are, therefore, loaded with a high content of
inorganic salts. One can better ensure the supply of needed minerals by
feeding children solid food in which the minerals are bio-available.
is a term referring to the reception, secretion and effect of
electrolytes. Natrium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium ions are very
important in maintaining this balance. The function of the electrolytes
is multifaceted. They regulate, for example, the irritability of the
heart and skeleton (cramps resulting from a lack of calcium), blood
clotting, water balance, and blood pressure. The intake of electrolytes
normally happens when we eat food; but problems with digestion, kidney
defects, and depletion through periods of pregnancy and breast-feeding
as well as during a child's period of growth can lead to an electrolyte
deficiency. High levels of tissue destruction have been noticed.
Electrolyte balance is regulated by hormones, in particular the
secretions of the kidney (aldosterone, corticosterone).
