All of the benefits found in DIVINIA are uniquely combined to make one special bottle of water, however, many people wonder how DIVINIA compares to specific kinds of water like deuterium depleted or hydrogen-enriched water.
As a company founded by a scientist, DIVINIA places emphasis on pursuing greater research and understanding of our water and all water, in general.
Below we address common questions in comparing DIVINIA to other leading products, while highlighting independent research that substantiates our product.
What is the parts per million of your deuterium? Why don't you have a lower deuterium level? Isn't it better to drink water at 100 ppm deuterium depletion to see a difference? We are asked numerous times a week on the deuterium levels of DIVINIA. By any and all scientific standards, DIVINIA is deuterium depleted at around 130 ppm. Scientifically speaking, deuterium-depleted water (DDW) has a lower concentration of deuterium than what occurs naturally (approximately 155 ppm); the depletion in DIVINIA is independently verified by an American university.
We did not set out to "create" a deuterium depleted water, but rather the depletion is a natural product of our purification; the deuterium depletion in DIVINIA is not artificially driven down or forced.
Most water is around 140 - 155 ppm and, though, 15% decrease may not seem like much, the Griffiths Theory suggests the adverse biological effect of deuterium goes by the square of the concentration. Additionally, more doctors and naturopaths are telling their patients about DIVINIA because the concentration is not too aggressive or drastic. DIVINIA's deuterium depletion matches that of spring or glacial water, making it ideal for everyday hydration! Though useful in urgent cases, drinking extremely low levels of deuterium depleted water daily may be dangerous or have deleterious effects, as it may inhibit cellular growth or turnover.
Does DIVINIA Water have extra hydrogen? Do you put hydrogen gas in your water? The thought of hydrogen water to have particular healing or therapeutic properties comes from the understanding that hydrogen is the smallest and most prolific molecule in the universe. Hydrogen can aid in gut health, reduce inflammation, improve skin quality, etc. by acting as an antioxidant molecule. This is done when hydrogen interacts with the oxygen free in radicals, helping to restrain them by combining with the oxygen to make water. Because hydrogen is so small, it's believed that it easily enters the mitochondria to fight free radicals that may cause oxidative stress.
So, why don't we infuse DIVINIA with hydrogen? Well, there's 2 good reasons.
First reason is that there is no need to. In 2007, overwhelming research conducted by Dr. Rustum Roy (founder of the Materials Research Laboratory at Penn State University) demonstrated a significantly higher energy bond between the hydrogen and oxygen molecules of DIVINIA Water compared to deionized water. The higher energy between the molecules means the hydrogen and oxygen molecules in DIVINIA break apart easier, making the hydrogen and oxygen more bioavailable with less energy to separate and use them biologically.
Secondly, hydrogen gas is very small. When pumped into water and packaged, the hydrogen gas can easily escape and leave the water behind at normal hydrogen levels. Furthermore, hydrogen water companies are relying on aluminum cans and aluminum-lined hydropacks to keep the hydrogen gas in tact. According to blog Wellness Mama, consistent exposure to aluminum can potentially lead to bone disease, nervous system problems, brain disease and disorders, respiratory problems, impaired iron absorption, and many other diseases and ailments.
If you are still considering the purchase of the leading hydrogen water brands, please check the label! Some of the most popular brands use water from Japan, and given the nuclear spill in Fukushima this makes us a little nervous.
