A high-quality reverse osmosis system can remove up to 99.99% of the harmful contaminants commonly found in tap water.
Some under the sink RO units even add essential trace minerals back into the water.
When it’s all said and done, your family can enjoy toxin-free, purified, perfectly alkalized water every time.
In this comprehensive guide, we dive deep into the science behind reverse osmosis systems, exploring how they can contribute to your overall health.
By the time you finish reading, you'll graduate with honors in hydrology.
Let’s dive right in!
What Is Reverse Osmosis?
How Does it Work?
When water goes through, all the nasty chemicals and bacteria gets trapped on one side, and clean water comes out on the other side, making it safe and pure to drink.

Benefits of Reverse Osmosis Water
If we take a closer look, benefits of a reverse osmosis become increasingly clear.
Here are some of the best reasons to drink RO water:
- Enhances taste & improves odor
- Removes chemical disinfectants, like chlorine
- Eliminates contaminants like heavy metals, lead, arsenic, pesticides and nuclear waste
- Remineralizes your water with magnesium, calcium and other electrolytes
- Makes perfectly alkalized, balanced pH water every time with an alkaline filter.
- Reduces plastic water bottle consumption, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint
- Offers long-term cost savings
- Provides peace of mind regarding the quality and safety of your drinking water
Additionally, it works to make your water more alkaline while maintaining a balanced pH. Ideally, your water should have a slightly basic pH (8-9) rather than an acidic one. Although more evidence is needed, preliminary studies suggest that drinking alkaline water may have benefits for diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure. A separate study found that alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help reduce acid reflux.
Is Reverse Osmosis Water Right for You?
If you live in a rural area, it protects your family from pesticides, herbicides, and the runoff of agricultural activities. Even for city residents, as we learned from the Flint Water Crisis, the risks are real. In 2016, an estimated 6,000 to 12,000 children had been exposed to lead poisoning due to corroded pipes contaminating the water supply. It's safe to say that these children would have fared much better with RO filters in their homes.
The U.S. military relies on RO technology to transform saltwater into potable drinking water, and in various parts of the world, RO systems become vital during floods and other natural disasters.
Regardless of your background or location, RO water stands as the pinnacle of hydration.
