In U.A.E, potable sources of water can be classified as groundwater stored mainly in aquifers and desalination of water, the most common method of water provisions for the Emirate. Both of the water sources are easily and readily available in the markets for our daily consumption along with various exported water, priced relatively high as one may have noticed.
A few months ago, I was introduced to the benefits of alkaline water and more so, the importance and relevance of Bisphenol A (BPA). Since there’s a lack of knowledge on both fronts of alkaline water and BPA, here’s a more in-depth explanation…
Alkaline water, commonly known as ionized water, is water that has a pH level greater than seven. This water is generally produced with the aid of ionizer, or “alkalizer” and features a number of health benefits.
What does BPA mean and how does it effect my well-being?
BPA stands for bisphenol A, an industrial chemical used to make certain plastics and resins which are commonly found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They may also be used in other consumer goods. Exposure to BPA is a m matter of concern due to known health effects of BPA on the brain, behavior and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children.
As I read on more, I researched if Dubai has any company that regards such concerns and sooner than expected, I stumbled up on Aquaplus. A quick call and Aquaplus were kind enough to give a tour of their facility and provide a one on one explanation to their ideology behind BPA and alkaline water as well as an insight to the key health benefits, especially for those who suffer from constant acidity issues, slowly raises hands.
Overall, in the past few months, Aquaplus has grown to be a staple supplier of water at home as personally, I felt and continue to feel the benefits of the water improving my health conditions, mainly acidity and knowing that the packaging of the water is safe without worrying about leaching of harmful chemicals such as BPA during the scorching Dubai summer and on the plus side, the weekly door step delivery is very favorable! For more information, feel free to visit the Aquaplus website.
Disclaimer: The post is based on my personal experience of consuming the water over the past few months, as I mainly felt a need to change the brand of water (due to health reasons) and rest assured, as always, the review posted above is true to my words.
