What inspired you to study, research and specialise in water alkalinity?
When my daughter was born, she had a very bad skin condition called atopic dermatitis. It was a big problem for us. The sight of her suffering was so painful to me as a father. So I resolved to find ways to cure her skin problem. I researched it and read many books about it and I met with a lot doctors until I found out the cause and the cure. The main causes are the food we’re eating, the water we’re drinking and the air we’re breathing. And, the cure is alkaline water, which is the reason why I worked very hard on developing products that alkalise water. So, my daughter’s skin problem was the reason why water alkalinity is my passion and business.
What are the foods and beverages with the highest level of alkalinity?
There are various kinds of foods and beverages that contain alkalinity such as apple, banana, green tea, broccoli, lime, mineral water, etc. Scientifically speaking, the more minerals in the water, the higher its alkalinity.
Does this mean that we should drink alkaline water every day? How do we know if we’re drinking too much alkaline water?
The pollution in the places we live in and the stresses brought about by our daily living cause the acidity level in our body to go up, which eventually causes ailments and diseases, if left unaddressed. So, as a scientist, I always recommend drinking a minimum of two litres of alkaline water every day to maintain a balanced pH level. If you opt to drink more than two litres every day, it’s no problem at all.

What are the benefits of using the HomePure Alkaline Jug and the HomePure Alkaline Stick?
QNET’s HomePure Alkaline Jug is very portable and every household can use it in alkalising their drinking water without having to need for electric power. As for the HomePure Alkaline Stick, you can bring it with you wherever you go, ensuring that you get to drink alkalised water wherever you are and whatever you’re doing.
Alkalised water from the HomePure Alkaline Jug and Stick has an antioxidant effect that helps prevent ageing. It improves the quality of the water at a molecular level, making the elimination of body waste more efficient. The Alkaline Stick supplies minerals that promote better metabolism and stabilise and protect the body’s cells.
Why the need to change the HomePure Alkaline Jug filter? What happens when it’s due for replacement but we fail to or don’t change it?
The filter of the HomePure Alkaline Jug alkalises 150 litres of water only – that’s three months worth of drinking water for a two-person household. At the end of the 3rd month, the filter should be changed as it’s no lnger as effective and besides, bacteria can potentially grow in it if it remains unchanged.
As for the HomePure Alkaline Stick, it should be replaced every 6 months.
QNET makes the HomePure Alkaline Stick and Jug available to you in your eStore under Home Care.
