Water is essential to all animal life and with the increasing health consciousness in modern society, people are watchful of what they eat and drink. Being careful of our foods consumed and drinking habits can go a long way toward increasing longevity. The need to consume healthy and adequate amounts of water plays a major role in meeting the health targets we set for ourselves.While most tap water is suitable for drinking there are different factors to consider in choosing a bottled water such as: Mineral content, Bottle BPA, pH – measure of acidity of water

Our Bodies

In 1931 Dr Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for discovering that cancer thrives in an acidic, low-oxygen environment but cannot survive in an alkaline, oxygen-rich environment. Oxidation is the process by which our bodies break down or “age” biologically. Each cell in our body contains a combination of proteins, minerals and fats. As these cellular building blocks are exposed to oxidation, the fats become rancid, the proteins putrefy and the minerals rust – all of which leads to decomposition. Oxidation is a systematic destruction of the body, resulting in wrinkles, degeneration of bones, organs and glandular systems, a weakening of cell membranes and a loss of vitality that can lead to diseases and death.

Free Radicals

Free radicals are the cause of oxidation. We see this in everyday life where metals rust, plants decompose, meat putrefies and oils become rancid when exposed to radicals. Free radicals are all around us – they are abundant in the air we breathe, the food we eat and the water we drink. They are even produced in the body as cellular waste.


Anti-oxidants are the only way to combat these components of metabolic destruction. Independent research has demonstrated that drinking ionized water dramatically reduces the oxidation that causes cancer and biological ageing. Since our bodies are composed of roughly 70 trillion cells which are primarily water – from 76-98% – the water we drink is the water that makes up these cells. Surprisingly water can be the most corrosive substance we can ingest, yet it is essential for life – hence the quality of water we drink directly impacts on our overall health. Ionized water contains large quantities of negatively charged ions that act as anti-oxidants in the body.

Our Water

Wondrous Water uses a municipal source of water and treats this water to achieve its end products. We have two types of water viz. Still Water and Alkaline Water. The Still Water is subjected to a 6 filter process, ozonated and UV treated to remove toxins and heavy metals to achieve a pH of 8.3 which is NOT ACIDIC. Alkaline Water is further treated and micro-clustered to achieve a pH of 9.3 which is highly alkaline. This anti oxidant water helps regulate the body’s free radicals and promotes vibrant health, healing and a balanced pH in the body.

Benefits of Alkaline Water

  • Helps neutralize the pH levels in the body.
  • It is a powerful anti-oxidant.
  • It has a smaller molecular content thereby making it easier for the body to absorb hence hydrating more effectively.
  • Helps to detox the body •Boosts the immune system.
  • Can help to fight cancer and other infections by creating an alkaline environment where cancer and viruses cannot survive
