If you are a health enthusiast you would probably have heard the claims about the health benefits of Alkaline water. You might also be wondering that since we are drinking eight glasses of water a day, why not get the best out of it?
What exactly is Alkaline water? When we take a look at the word “alkaline” in “Alkaline water”, it mainly refers to its pH level. A pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. Alkaline water generally has a pH of 8 or 9, while normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Apart from the pH level, alkaline minerals and negative oxidation-reduction potential (ORP) may impart substantial alkalinity to water as well. ORP is the ability of water to act as a pro- or antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more anti-oxidizing it is.
It is claimed that the slight increase in the alkalinity of the water can neutralise the acid in your bloodstream, as well as prevent diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
There are also tons of said benefits of Alkaline water. One claim that Alkaline water enthusiasts have is that its increased hydrogen provides greater hydration than regular water, especially after an intensive workout.
When it comes to health, Alkaline water touts pro-aging properties, as liquid antioxidants can absorb more quickly into the human body, other benefits include improved metabolism and increase in energy, improved digestion and reducing acid reflux, and lastly, reduces bone loss.
One can argue that soft drinks are notoriously acidic with a pH level of 2.5 to 3.5 with very positive ORPs, which lead to many problems. On the other hand, properly ionised and alkalinised waters have highly negative ORPs which mean more antioxidants. A great example of a drink rich in antioxidants and slightly negative ORPs is green tea.
Searching for the perfect Alkaline water dispenser for your home can feel slightly overwhelming due to the number of brands and features that fit your unique needs. If you are planning on purchasing an Alkaline water dispenser for your home, this article hopes to provide you with our top picks of AmGlow on our favourite Alkaline water dispenser in Singapore to support your access to healthy and hydrating water.
All of AmGlow’s home water filtration systems have undergone rigorous testing by independent bodies such as NSF and SGS. Additionally, all of them include a sediment filter, a granular activated carbon filter, a carbon block filter, and a post-carbon filter.
This 4 Stage Undersink Water Filter System provides you with the necessary features needed in an undersink water filter system. The benefit of an undersink water filter is that it is out of sight. Since these are installed underneath your sink and in a cabinet, they are out of sight and off your countertop. This is great if you have limited kitchen top space.
This system’s AMF filters can help regain optimum pH through calcit, giving you hydrating Alkaline water conveniently. The filter even fully cleans your water to the highest standard, eliminating 99% of all contaminants including chlorine, bacteria, harmful metals/ nonmetals, and other minute contaminants.
Getting it done at the source and pleasantly away from sight is also a feature of AmGlow’s 5 Stage Undersink Water Filter System. The effective water filter system not only eliminates 99% of all contaminants including chlorine, bacteria, harmful metals/ nonmetals, and other minute contaminants, but it also adds minerals to the water, producing high-quality and healthy drinking Alkaline Water. At the 5th stage of filtration, its alkaline remineralisation filter balances the pH value of the water and reintroduces healthy minerals like calcium, sodium, and potassium, to lend a rejuvenating boost to each sip.
Purchasing either the 4 Stage Undersink Water Filter System or a 5 Stage Undersink Water Filter System will present you with a complimentary luxury gooseneck faucet. All AmGlow’s products are completely free of lead or BPA, providing optimum purification and security in the knowledge that no harmful contaminants will ever reach your body.
If you are looking for an undersink water filter alternative, you may opt for a countertop water filter instead. Compared to under sink water filters, a countertop water filter requires very little installation, and some are ready to go from the moment you unbox them. Another advantage is its portability since they do not need any permanent installation. Lastly, countertop water filters tend to be more affordable than Under sink water filters.
However, one drawback is its bulkiness. A countertop filter would sit on your counter, which means it takes up space. If you are someone who wants a clutter-free countertop, you may want to look into under sink filters instead.
Our top pick for the hot cold water dispenser for your home is the AmGlow Touchscreen Tabletop Hot & Cold Water Dispenser. What we enjoy about this product are its dark, sleek design and its ergonomics. This touchscreen tabletop water dispenser is a beautiful addition to your kitchen.
Apart from Alkaline water filters, this system contains two other filters including Ultrafiltration, sediments, and Carbon blocks. These filters provide pure and fresh drinking water at just a touch of the screen.
One of the reasons why this water dispenser is suitable for your home is due to the dimension of the system. The system is slimmer than tankless models with a dimension of 21 x 45 x 40cm which allows it to sit nicely on your kitchen island or kitchen counter. The best part is that no manual refilling of the machine is required since it is direct-piped. It is also certified NSF/ ANSI standard 58, 100% BPA free and Lead-free. This device also has safety features, which include child-lock, essential when there are toddlers at home.
This system is also suitable for smaller office spaces. However, if you are looking for a device with greater capacity, you may want to consider two devices, Sensor Direct Piping Standing Dispenser and Sensor Standing Water Dispenser (Bottom-Load).
Finding alkaline water in Singapore should not be a difficult task, especially if we are supporting our family’s health and hydrating needs. Take the time to select the right system for your home needs because picking the right water filter system with ideal features is important for a sustainable and satisfying purchase.
