Special bioceramics, obtained from the combustion of minerals and metals, react upon contact with water, thus allowing mineral ionization. With this chemical process, water takes on the same characteristics that it would obtain from treatment with an electronic water ionizer. In fact, it becomes pure, alkaline, oxygen-rich, antioxidant (electron-rich) and finely clustered.
Knowledge about water treatment with carbonized minerals and metals is very old and especially wide-spread in China, Japan and Korea, where ceramics were already fired between 3000 and 2000 years ago. Subsequently, functional ceramics have been developed that can change the pH and redox (ORP) values of water.
SANUSLIFE® INTERNATIONAL has embraced this ancient knowledge. Numerous tests have been performed to identify the weaknesses of conventional filter mediums, and to adapt them to the characteristics of today’s water. Practically, the whole process has been revised: from the materials, to the length of combustion, to the composition of the ingredients. The result is surprising: the ECAIA cartridge is able to ionize even hard, calcareous water, which is found everywhere in the world.
Depending on the values of the water available, a pH value up to 9.5 and an ORP value even less than -300 mV can be reached.
In areas with very hard water, high-performance ionization cannot be guaranteed, which is why a low to very low pH value and/or a redox value in the plus range can also be observed.
