Stage 1 Activated carbon
For our cartridges we exclusively use high-quality activated carbon with an iodine value of 1200 (highest absorption value). Various pollutants such as heavy metals, chlorine, coarse drug residues and nitrate are bound and retained.
Stage 2 Zeolite
Zeolite is a microporous rock that has the ability of adsorpion (i.e. it binds substances to itself), including free radicals, ammonia or dioxins. Furthermore, it regulates the pH-value and as an ion exchanger it attracts the pollutants and releases the minerals contained.
Stage 3 Turmaline Balls
The tourmaline is finely pulverized and then fired into balls. It generates negatively charged ions. Since the effect is even intensified by trituration, the radiation of the negative ions is intensified. In addition, infrared radiation is generated as well as a weak electrical current of 0.06 mA. This bioelectricity is related to the energy impulses in our nerve tracts and our brain. Tourmaline alkalizes the water (pH-value 7 – 7.5), has an antibacterial effect and releases mineral microelements. It is also said to have a strengthening and healing effect.
Stage 4 Silicon Minerals
The last stage takes over the function of a stream as in nature. The water gets back its natural taste. It also releases colloidal traces of silicon. In this form it is particularly bioavailable.
