Two Best Water Ionizers & Coral Calcium
May 19, 2013
Ah, to wake in the morning to a fresh glass of alkaline water! The taste is soft and slightly sweet. Drink 2-3 glasses without the "stuffed" feeling you get with other waters.
Why sweet? Because there's no acid minerals! Acids taste sour. Indeed, sweetness is a test of any food or water. The sweeter a fruit or vegetable, the less pesticides and other acid chemicals in its making. Dr. Baroody mentions in Alkalize or Die:
"The sweeter the food tastes, the higher its alkalinity."
Of course he means raw foods from nature, not junk food made by machines.
Melody and Orion
Jupter Melody and Orion are our two best sellers. Why? Chiefly because:
- Melody + Orion have an optional Under-Sink Kit with their own faucet – you can plumb them directly into a cold water pipe instead of attaching them to your faucet. This is useful if you want to place your Jupiter away from the faucet, and eliminate the tubing and valve at faucet.
- The cheaper Neptune and UltraTechnos must stand at your faucet because you pull the diverter valve on the faucet when you turn the water on, and hold your glass under their spout. Melody and Orion, on the other hand, have their own spout – see photo below.
Of course you can also connect Melody and Orion to a faucet if you prefer.
- Melody + Orion's five electrode plates are bigger, making their plates the strongest and therefore the best at ionizing – more anti-oxidants, more oxygen for you.
- Melody + Orion have more ionization levels – this helps to accurately choose your specific pH. You switch Melody or Orion to, say, 9, use the included pH test kit to see what pH 9 is, then you can switch it down to 8 or up to 10. UltraTechnos just has low, medium, high.
- Melody + Orion always give alkaline water, even when cleaning. Jupiter is the first ionizer in the world to offer this. Most other ionizers don't give alkaline water during the cleaning cycle.
- Melody + Orion do a unique post-operation automatic cleansing, each silently cleans itself after every use, for an extended lifespan. Most other ionizers have Neptune's auto-cleanse on start-up.
Customer Charlotte C. of Albuquerque writes:
"I was finally able to talk to Jay [importer for Jupiter] and he answered all my questions. It appears that the Melody, in addition to bells and whistles, does produce a higher quality of water (higher ORP and redox), not just the ph, because of the larger ionizer plates. And the calcium port aids in that water quality process."
Charlotte decided on Melody rather than Neptune.
Option for Lay-Away Payments
To help you get the very best – a Melody or Orion – I asked shipper Dan in Michigan to allow for lay-away payments. I myself couldn't afford to buy the Melody in one month.
With lay-away you can pay for your Jupiter over a few months. Dan will ship when the final payment is received. You can also skip months, or pay more in any month.
Calcium Additive Port
All Jupiter models – including the low-cost UltraTechnos – have a separate coral calcium layer *in their water filter.* This assists ionization in cases of mineral deficient water such as tank water, and helps to maintain your calcium balance. This coral layer is unique to all our Jupiter models.
Coral calcium is the ideal 2:1 ratio of calcium to magnesium with a host of essential trace elements. As the water runs through the coral layer in the filter, it leaches calcium out. This layer is designed to last the life of the filter – approx. 2,000 gallons or 9 months.
But naturally you get more calcium with an additive port. If you'd like both Tourmaline with FIR and extra ionized calcium, and to locate your Ionizer away from your kitchen sink, then go for the higher-cost Melody or Orion.
Benefits of Coral Calcium
Unique to our Jupiter models is the coral calcium layer in the Filter. It means that even in Filter Only mode, you enjoy extra ionized calcium – see Stop Osteoporosis.
In addition, Melody + Orion are unique in their *coral* calcium pellets for the calcium additive port. Most other ionizers use calcium *sulfate.*
In The Calcium Factor: The Scientific Secret of Health and Youth, Barefoot & Reich write:
"The human body is only capable of absorbing about 800 milligrams of calcium each day. Unfortunately, calcium is one of the hardest minerals for the body to absorb. Many of the calcium supplements are only in the 2 to 3% absorption range, while the so called "great" supplements are about only 15%.
The cultures like the Hunzas, who consume over 100,000 mg of calcium each day, obviously get their 800 mg absorption, while harmlessly passing the rest in their urine and excretion. With the Okinawans, because of the microbes in the coral, discovered by Swedish scientists in the 1990's, the absorption approaches nearly 100%.
Therefore, taking 250 mg of calcium in an antacid product, which does severe harm to the elderly by wiping out their crucial stomach acid supplies, usually results in the absorption of 5 mg (2%) calcium by the body over a 20 hour period.
There is substantial evidence that the nutrients in coral are absorbed in less than 20 minutes (the blood chemistry undergoes a drastic change, for the better, in less than 20 minutes). Therefore the 250 mg of calcium in the coral results in 250 mg being absorbed by the body in less than 20 minutes, and without destroying the crucial stomach fluids. That's almost "50 times as much calcium, 50 times as fast".
No wonder the coral calcium works so well! In addition, when people have major diseases, the consumption of a triple dose of coral provides the maximum calcium absorption.
Coral calcium was first introduced to Western culture when it was brought to Europe by the Spanish explorers about 500 years ago. The world's oldest drugstores in Spain, which today are historic monuments, have clay pots on their shelves labeled "Coral Calcium, Okinawa Japan". Literature written by doctors of the day told of miraculous cures.
... Coral is very much like human bone and the body does not reject it, and it is conducive to allowing new bone growth. In Germany, surgeons will pack the cracks and holes in the broken bones of the elderly with a coral paste made from coral calcium and water. Within 3 weeks the coral is displaced with new bone growth.
... In the case of "coral calcium", its versatile benefit that has resulted in literally millions of testimonials over the past 600 years is explained by the varied quantity of minerals contained within the coral (as a result of the coral leaching nutrients from the ocean waters for millions of years) and their important role in the maintenance of almost all important body structures and function.
... Japan, China, Russia, Sweden, France and England have tens of millions of people taking coral calcium daily with reportedly millions of testimonials. Coral has only been in America for a few years [written in 2002] but already the testimonies are flooding in."
Barefoot & Reich then quote 19 pages from users testifying to how coral calcium helped their cancer (many types), arthritis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, rapid heart beat, leg cramps, joint pain, and heel spurs.
