What kind of water should I use with the BE:Hydration stick?
Just use tap, bottled or filtered water… any potable (drinking) water. The BE:Hydration stick does not filter water, it just adds essential minerals to create alkaline antioxidant water. Our Pitchers cooler and counter top units filter the water.
How long does it take to make the water alkaline and how high does the pH increase?
The BE:Hydration stick will start making the water alkaline immediately and it typically takes 15-25 minutes for the water to reach an optimal level over 8 PH. For optimal life of your BE:Hydration stick, remove after one hour. Some people leave there sticks in longer which is perfectly safe. It can just shorten the life of the stick.
Can the pH get to high?
Don’t worry about the pH climbing to high, as the minerals dissipate, the water absorbs it. The water saturates at around 9.5, well within the safe range. If you find that it is strong to your taste after leaving in too long, just dilute with more water. The time it takes to climb in pH can vary depending upon the pH of the source water.
What is pH?
pH stands for the potential of hydrogen, which is a measure of hydrogen ion concentration. The pH scale ranges from 0-14 used to measure how acidic or basic a substance is. A pH of 7 is neutral. A pH less than 7 is acidic, and a pH greater than 7 is basic.
What is ORP?
The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is a measurement of the presence of oxidizing agents in drinking water. A positive ORP indicates oxidation (aging/deterioration) potential whereas a negative ORP indicates antioxidant (anti-aging/beneficial) potential. Most tap and bottled water typically have a positive ORP. BE:Hydration alkaline stick decreases the ORP to a negative level in as little as 5 minutes to create antioxidant water.
What is micro-clustered water?
A water molecule is made of two hydrogens atoms and one oxygen atom to make up the commonly known H2O ‘water’ molecule. Not so commonly known is that water comes in clusters of molecules, typically up to 13 molecules in tap water. The BE:Hydration Alkaline stick reduces cluster count to allow for greater permeability within the cells to quickly hydrate and replenish.
How long do the BE:Hydration Sticks last?
BE:Hydration sticks last for up to 2000 liters, or around 528 Gallons. If you drink 3-4 BE:Hydration 27 oz bottles a day… your stick would last about 2 years! So that’s a cost of only $0.02 per liter or $.075 per gallon…!
How do I test the pH of the BE:Hydration water?
To test the pH of the water, use Phenol Red.
***** Please note that test strips do not work. They have buffers that don’t provide proper results with alkaline water.****
Is the water safe for my Pets?
Cats and dogs love the BE:Hydration water! Most people are impressed how when their pets are given the choice, they always go to the BE:Hydration alkaline water!!! (and so should you!!!)
Is BE:Hydration water safe for plants?
Plants love BE:Hydration’s mineral rich water!
Is there side effects from BE:Hydration water?
Good health is the side effect of proper Hydration and adding essential minerals with BE:Hydration to your diet! Although when first using the BE:Hydration water, some people can experience a detox, which can have similar to flu like symptoms…. Frequent trips to the bathroom, ect. If you experience this it generally goes away in a few days. If you experience this, people usually notice some big changes in their health and can also experience weight loss over the next few weeks! That is a sign of severe dehydration and lack of minerals. Detoxing can be unpleasant but should be welcomed as it shows your body is flushing toxins!
