Comparing The Zazen Water Filter to Berkey, RO and Ionisers like Kangen

By Janet Parker, CEO Zazen. (Article source )

water filter comparison

Your key to success when a competitive product comes up is to be clear, precise and confident, understanding that the core philosophy of the zazen Water System is to ensure your client hydrates at a cellular level. It is not simply a "Filtration System" or about drinking "Alkaline Water", it is so much more than that!

So, first of all, we know you are not a sales person and you do not need to know all the ins and outs about other "water filter or purification" products.

The Philosophy

Why zazen Water? It is simply like no other water.

zazen Water philosophically asks the questions "What are the properties of water to support optimum wellbeing?" and "What is the purpose of water in the body?"

That is the purpose of zazen Alkaline Water. Water designed to hydrate and support optimum cellular health and wellbeing.This is the foundation to everything that happens in the body.

"One part of the zazen Water design philosophy achieves balanced mineralisation which in turn produces electrical charges in our cells via electrolytes like negatively charged potassium ions leaving the cell attracted to the positivity outside the cell membrane and positively charged sodium ions enter it moving toward the negative charge. This creates a rapid switch in charge generating an electrical impulse on a continuous cycle effectively creating energy "thus moving metabolic waste out of the cell and pulling nutrients into the cell"

Other systems such as Berkey, RO (Reverse Osmosis) and Ionisers like Kangen are NOT designed to create water that hydrates you or your client!

They have been designed philosophically completely differently for other reasons or to solve a problem with water quality!

The questions they may ask are "how do we create safe water?"

With this question, we end up with systems like Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtering almost everything out creating dead water; because they believe that water is just H2O. Pure H2O will not hydrate the body, in fact it will rob the body of essential minerals and cause systemic health issues over time (WHO report 2002 - The life force of water is in the alkaline minerals, structure and energy of water found in healthy hydrating water).

While others technologies such as Ionisers e.g. a brand called Kangen believe that the "more alkaline water is the better", with no thought to filtration or balance or structure or the properties required to support a healthy person. The philosophy here is "more is better" and for a healthy person more is not better! So we move from Acidosis to too alkaline!

While others like the Berkey and Ceramic Pots, have been designed first and foremost as a filter.

None of the above water systems have been designed to create water that supports cellular hydration and wellbeing - because they are philosophically coming from a completely different place.
