Water Ionizers From China or Taiwan…What You Need to Know

We love a bargain as much as the next person.  Buying something fabulous for a lower price during a sale is great!  However, getting a sub-standard alternative just because it’s cheaper, isn’t so great.

In other words, cheap doesn’t always mean good value.

A deadly bargain?
A deadly bargain?

East Asia and Water Ionizers

Water ionizers aren’t cheap, nor should they be. Ionizers have been imported from East Asia for over half a century, but which country those machines hail from matters enormously.

If you’ve had your head turned by one of the cheap models available from Taiwan or China, then put your wallet back in your bag and read on.

The Dangers Slipping Past the FDA

There is a real problem with the ionizers coming out of China and Taiwan.  The machines are slipping past the watchful eye of the seriously overstretched FDA, which exists as the vanguard between dubious goods being imported into the US, and their intended customer base.  Since the advent of internet shopping, more and more suspect products manufactured overseas are finding their way here, with less than 1% of those products actually being inspected.

And it’s not about cosmetic problems such as loose connections, buttons that don’t work or a cracked plastic casing (it’s worth noting here that Tyent’s above counter units are the only ionizers that feature a genuine stainless steel front).  Lead, one of the deadly contaminants turning up with alarming regularity in domestic sources water across America, is used frequently in manufacturing in China.  Can you imagine the irony of buying a water ionizer to provide you with clean, health-giving water, only to find that the very product itself contains lead?

Fraudulent Assurance

We’ve mentioned China, but the very same issue affects products from Taiwan as well.  Don’t be fooled by supposed “Lead Free” certifications either – there’s a whole separate trade in providing this bogus certification.

The Real Thing!

Japan and Korea, on the other hand, are a very different story.  The birthplace of water ionizers in many respects, both countries export high quality, lead-free ionizers which demonstrate some of the finest design and engineering in the world.  In fact, water ionizers were certified as medical devices by the Health and Rehabilitation Ministry of the Japanese Government over half a century ago.

Not all cheap is bad, but when it risks your family’s health, then avoid at all costs.

Water 101: How Much Water Does Your Body Need?

You’ve heard the facts: The human body is made up of approximately 80% water. Water is made of hydrogen and oxygen. We need clean water to survive. But when it comes to your day-to-day life, are you getting enough water, or are you forcing your body to run on empty?

Without enough water, your body doesn’t function as well as it should. Some possible effects of drinking too little water include:

  • Feeling tired
  • Being unable to concentrate
  • Lacking energy to do everyday activities
  • Headaches

Many adults feel these symptoms every day, and don’t even realize that they’re really suffering from dehydration. Hydrating your body can make a huge difference in the way you feel—no prescriptions required.

Water needs vary for every person, so no one-size-fits-all recommendation will work for everyone. But these are a few approximations you can make safely:

  • Men need roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of water per day.
  • Women need about 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of water per day.
  • You probably need to drink more water if you’re sweating a lot (due to exercise or a hot climate) or feeling ill.

We do ingest some water through food, and all liquid beverages do contribute somewhat to overall hydration. But there’s nothing like pure water to replenish your immune system and get your body functioning at its highest level.

Still, not all water is created equal. At Tyent USA, we specialize in offering the highest-quality water ionizers on the market to provide you with water that goes above and beyond hydration. Our alkaline water fuels your body with antioxidants and hydroxyl ions, and hydrates you more quickly than ordinary water.

Learn more about all of our water ionizers and filters that can give your body the water it needs, along with additional benefits to your health that you’ll notice right away.

Five Tips to Get More Antioxidants in Your Body

Every day, you should consume antioxidants, those natural fighters of free radicals and disease, which we all could probably use more of.  Antioxidants protect your body’s cells from heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and many other immune problems, so it’s a good idea to intentionally squeeze them into your diet (unlike soda or sodium!).

For some sneaky ways to get more antioxidants into your body and to maximize your health benefits from them, try these five antioxidant-rich tips.

Brighter is better. At the grocery store, but can’t remember which foods have the most antioxidants? Go for the fruits and veggies with the brightest colors. Blueberries, watermelon, tomatoes, and corn are each vibrantly-hued foods that are full of antioxidants. In general, vegetables and fruits with bright colors are the most antioxidant-saturated.

  1. Reach for the java. Caffeine is an antioxidant, and coffee is currently the number-one source for antioxidants in the American diet. That doesn’t mean you should skip the produce and rely exclusively on your morning brew du jour, but enjoying your morning coffee does contribute antioxidants to your daily quota.
  2. Cook with olive oil. Instead of cooking with plain cooking spray or butter, start cooking with olive oil to add antioxidants to whatever you’re whipping up. Olive oil is made of unique plant compounds that may slow the development of cancer cells. To reap the most benefits, choose extra-virgin olive oil instead of pure or light.
  3. Eat the right spice. You can consume more antioxidants by cooking with a few special spices.  Cinnamon, oregano, and ginger add tasty flavor and nourishing antioxidants to your diet. Even if you don’t cook often, ordering restaurant food made with these spices can boost your antioxidant levels.
  4. Drink alkaline water. Normal tap water transforms into an antioxidant-rich elixir for your health after it’s been ionized. All water rejuvenates us, but a glass of fresh alkaline water contains as many antioxidants as a glass of orange juice, with none of the calories and sugar in a serving of O.J. With Tyent USA’s lineup of the best water ionizers available, you can consume as many glasses of antioxidant-packed alkaline water as you like every day.

Our newest ionizer, the Under Counter Extreme UCE-11 Turbo water ionizer, lets you pour alkaline water straight from your faucet into your cup, while hiding the nuts and bolts beneath your countertop. The UCE 11 makes your kitchen an antioxidant factory to help you take your health to the next level. Thanks to the science of Tyent’s water ionizers, antioxidants can be as simple to consume as turning on your faucet.

Five Things That Aren’t as Healthy As You Thought They Were

Every day, we hear people and publications pushing new super-foods and supplements for the betterment of our health. But after a closer look, a few supposedly golden foods and habits aren’t quite the pinnacles of health that we thought they were. Check out these five things that aren’t as healthy as public perception would have it:

1. Granola. Think health food, and you probably think granola. Substitute a handful of granola for bread or chips, and you’ve got a healthy snack. Right? Well, granola may have less sugar than a bowl of kids’ cereal, but most granolas on the market are still highly artificially sweetened. Look for a granola sweetened with dried fruit or honey and chock-full of nuts so that you get some protein with your snack.

2. Salads. Salads have become synonymous with eating light, but the way that salads are served in most restaurants, you’d come out even by just ordering the hamburger. Eat This, Not That lists 20 restaurant salads worse than a Burger King Whopper. Some salads on the list boast more than 1,300 calories! In general, avoid fixing or ordering salads with creamy dressing, excessive cheese, Iceberg lettuce, anything with the word “crispy” (unless it’s referring to raw veggies or nuts), and croutons.

3. Rice cakes. Although they taste light and airy, many rice cakes aren’t a light snack option. Today’s highly-flavored rice cakes are held together with sugar and tons of sodium. You might not consume too many calories if you watch your serving size, but you’re also not getting much of anything good for you by eating rice cakes—they’re not really nutrient dense, which means that you’ll be consuming scant calories but getting no nutritional value or full-feeling from them. Snack on high-fiber whole-grain crackers, carrots, hummus, or yogurt instead.

4. Low-fat foods. Many grocery-store foods now come in low- or reduced-fat varieties: peanut butter, cereal, cookies, chips, bread—the list goes on. But when companies take out the fats in foods, they often replace them with sky-high amounts of sugar and starch, which actually can lead to weight gain. Isn’t that the opposite of what you were trying to do by buying low-fat? Make sure your diet includes plenty of good-for-you fats from healthy oils, fish, nuts, and avocados.

5. Drinking water. Most diet and exercise regimens remind the healthy faithful to drink more water, and it’s a great idea to consume more water as a rule. But all water isn’t created equal. The stuff coming out of your tap could be filled with contaminants, and it most certainly isn’t helping to add antioxidants and healthy hydroxyl ions to your body. Alkaline water from a top-notch water ionizer is the best way to drink the water that your body craves, and to do more for your body than simply hydrate it.

As a rule of thumb, read the nutrition facts to assess if a food’s content is really as healthy as the label or commercial claims. The next time you hear people declare that something is super-healthy, ask questions about how nutrient-dense it is—you’ll sound like a nutrition guru, and you’ll be reminding them to take their health into their own hands and question what healthy really means.

Top Three Tech Tools for Your Health

True: You can use technology to be lazy. With today’s nearly movie theater-caliber TVs and sound systems, it’s more tempting than ever to use technology to become a regular couch potato. But recent advancements in technology can also do the opposite to actually help you become healthier.

These three tech tools score big when it comes to using technology for the betterment of health. Along with your favorite smartphone games and e-readers, these tools can fit into your busy day to encourage a well-rounded lifestyle.

Workout-tracking apps. If you’re a runner or walker, check out apps like RunKeeper and MapMyRUN to log your distance daily, get a bird’s-eye view of how you’re doing with your fitness goals, and interact with other like-minded users. If you’re the iron-pumping type, try JEFIT for the ability to track your bodybuilding, get new ideas for exercises and muscle groups to strengthen, and share your results with other JEFIT community members. The social aspect of exercise-tracking apps can help keep you accountable so you’re less likely to fall off the fitness wagon.

Wireless calorie monitors. Pedometers have come a long way. Nowadays, with armbands like the BodyMedia FIT, you can track a lot more than the number of steps you take. The BodyMedia FIT logs your daily calories burned (whether in the gym or in the office) with 95% accuracy. Everyone burns calories differently, so that calorie-tracking feature on the treadmill may not be as reliable as you think. Likewise, you may be pleasantly surprised to find out how many calories you burn by taking the stairs at work. This helpful armband lets you know precisely how many calories you’ve spent each day to give you a better idea of how to control weight.

Water ionizers. Tap water may accomplish the basics of helping to hydrate you, but it’s not packing powerful antioxidants or helping you maintain an alkaline pH (6.9-7.2) within your body—both of which should be concerns when trying to live a longer, healthier life. Water ionizers from Tyent USA feature voice announcement, a touch screen, and the most advanced water purification available. Plus, the alkaline water that the ionizers produce will hydrate you up to six times more than regular water, which is especially important for active people.

Implementing these tech-forward tools every day will make a healthier lifestyle feel less like work and more like having fun with technology, which could help you meet your fitness and lifestyle goals more quickly.

Let us know if you use any other tech gadgets that add a fun spin to healthy living.

7 Top Water Ionizer Technology Must Haves!

If you’re buying an ionizer then hold on to your wallet until you’ve read this.  There are seven major features that are essential to look for when buying an ionizer, so read on to make sure you buy wisely!

Sleek looks and a hi-tech performance.
Sleek looks and a hi-tech performance.
  1. The quality and performance of the plates in your ionizer cannot be stressed enough. Tyent solid/mesh hybrid plates are constructed from titanium and dipped multiple times in pure platinum for an unsurpassed performance.

“At Tyent USA, there is one thing that we know for sure—we have the largest, strongest, most reliable and most powerful plates in the industry.”

  1. Equally as important as the plates are the filters.  Tyent Dual Ultra filters remove 200 contaminants and 99% of deadly lead for peace of mind that can’t be beaten.
  2. Power Output. The most efficient ionizers direct maximum amperage to the plates.  More power means increased ionization and greater negative ORP (oxidation reduction potential).  The greater the negative ORP, the greater the neutralizing action of the water when it comes to fighting damaging free radicals.
  3. Flow rate. Exactly what it sounds like.  Tyent ionizers have a super-fast flow rate that is 40% faster than any other ionizer on the market.
  4. Lifetime guarantee. An ionizer is a reasonably significant purchase for most people, and you need the cast iron reassurance that you’re protected.  Tyent stands out from the crowd by offering a no quibble lifetime guarantee.
  5. Fingertip Control. Being in complete control with the unique Simple Touch® Display, a standard feature on our ionizers.  The intuitive Smartphone touch-screens are perfect for today’s lifestyle.
  6. Convenient Self Cleaning! Our stylish ionizers are self-cleaning units, essential for busy families and hectic lives.

Buying an ionizer is an investment, so you need to get it right.  We’re pleased and proud that Tyent has won the Ionizer of the Year Award 2017, making it our eighth win of that title since 2009.

What Is a Water Ionizer?

Going back to basics is often a brilliantly useful exercise.  We talk a lot about the wonders of hydrogen in ionized water, specifically the effect that all of those antioxidants have on your body and the myriad ways that your health can improve as a result of drinking Tyent water.

Thinking business woman with glasses looking up on many questions mark
What does “going to back to basics” mean to you?

Maybe every now and then, we should look more closely at the source of all these incredible benefits.  After all, how much do you really know about how ionized water is actually produced?

What’s Inside an Ionizer?

That super-sleek finish of the under counter or countertop ionizer conceals the compartments where the magic all happens!

A Tyent ionizer is fitted directly to the tap, so that water flows into the unit and passes through our amazing filters.  We don’t use the word “amazing” lightly; Tyent filters are unmatched, possessing the same filtration capabilities as kidney dialysis machines.

Highly Charged Process

The filtered water then flows into the electrolysis chamber and over electrically charged plates, constructed from titanium plates dipped multiple times in platinum.

Positive and negative electrical charges pass through the water in a process called electrolysis, which separates it into two streams of water – acidic and alkaline.  The final phase is when the ionized, filtered water passes through a membrane before being ready to drink!

The Same Point, En Pointe

It sounds complex and time consuming, but all of this happens at the simple touch of a button!  It might sound like an odd analogy, but it’s a little like watching a Prima Ballerina execute the perfect arabesque.  The moment she does it, it looks breathtakingly effortless.  Behind that flawless moment is years of arduous training and refining her technique.

Dancing ballerina in the summer garden

And so it is when you press a button on your Tyent ionizer, and pure, ionized water flows out.  Behind that simple touch of the control panel is the complex amalgam of superb engineering, chemistry and design that makes Tyent ionizers quite simply, the best in the world!
