Defiant is the ultimate and most effective 6-stage purified alkaline water filtration system on the market. Defiant is considered the “Next Generation” of reverse osmosis systems. Not only does it provide pure filtrated drinking water for the home, but it also provides alkaline water in the process. Defiant is popular because of the ease to operate and maintain. Reverse osmosis units provide an answer to the challenges of treated water in our communities, and help in eliminating the need to buy bottled water. Many municipal water sources in the U.S. use either chlorine or its most common substitute, chloramine, as disinfectants. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) states that the byproducts of chlorine and chloramine in water may act as human carcinogens (cancer-causing agents). Although the Defiant reverse osmosis unit uses a combination of carbon filters to remove most contaminants, it also sends the water through an extremely tight membrane that filters particles that carbon filtration alone cannot do.
For example, if there’s lead in your water, the ultra-thin film membrane of the Defiant unit will remove 95% to 98% of it. If your water has a high amount of sodium, the same ultra-thin film membrane will remove 91% to 96% of it. Sodium is not removed by normal filtration. The Defiant reverse osmosis membrane, in conjunction with the carbon filtration that accompanies it, is the best technology available for the removal of sodium and the chloramine which many city water systems now use instead of chlorine.
The Defiant reverse osmosis system includes alkaline media that balances the pH level of the water being produced by the unit. Typically, water purified by a system of carbon filters and a membrane is acidic. Defiant marries the purified water and balances the pH levels to produce alkaline purified drinking water.
Alkaline water is water in which the oxygen molecules outnumber the hydrogen molecules and it has an extra electron. The benefits to alkaline water come in the form of antioxidant bubbles called hydroxyl ions. These ions act to remove free radicals from the blood and decrease oxidation and aging, two factors in many types of cancers, claims Beat Cancer.
As time goes on, factors such as a poor diet, stress and smoking increase the acidity of the blood, making the body more susceptible to diseases such as cancer. Cancer cells find it difficult to grow in an alkaline environment because alkaline water gives the cells an inhospitable environment in which to grow.
