Commercial Water...

Post by victor » Fri Jul 07, 2006 2:46 pm

I've seen many advertisement...and one of them is advertising mineral water product. Nowadays, we see that mineral water is "equipped" with more dissolved oxygen.
My question is, would this excecssive oxygen in those mineral water products give much effect to our body? :?

I can say that oxygen equipped water is made just to optimize the oxygen intake to our body beside from respiration (considering that the air is so polluted so that there's not much oxygen left.. :lol: )..
or any info about this??

Marketing trick, In my opinion... ANd I really do not believe that it could in any way affect the oxygen intake of our bodies.

My local farmer's market sells sthis stuff called "structured water". I'm not quite sure what it is but I think I ruined the batch by shaking them up :evil:

Then, I've also heard that beside this 'more oxygen equipped water', there also hexagonal water, which is said better than ordinary water (which said to be in pentagonal form)..
They also sell the machine that can "change" pentagonal structured water into hexagonal structured one..of course I can't believed it just like that !!!

Now the question is, is there any benefit that we take a hexagonal water instead of pentagonal water into our bodies??

@Canalon
I agree....marketing is tricky.. :lol:

I'm just curious about the advertising...:lol: and it start to make me feel suspicious also because they even show the structure in the advertisement which is really hexagonal shape which as long as I read in the literature will only be formed in crystal phase... :lol:

Well, thanks for the explaination :mrgreen:

They're all just a marketing ploy used by companies to make consumers feel as though they are drinking something "special", when in fact they just drinking ordinary water.

Water can only exist as H2O. The additional oxygen has a similar effect to taking in a small breath of air. It is just ordinary oxygen. The oxygen cannot be chemically integrated into the molecule through covalent or ionic bonds. Otherwise it would form hydrogen peroxide.

Can these "crystal water" companies be sued for fraudulent advertising?

I don't think that they can be sued..because all they do are advertising..not harming people's health..
But I can say that this is a legalled lie :lol:
