January 3: Immunity boosters have once again become the buzzword among the denizens as the third wave looms big with the huge spike in Covid-19 cases driven by Omicron in India. Thanks to ICPURE (India) for creating India’s first alkaline water ionizer in technical collaboration with the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research’s Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (CSIR-IICT), which comes under the Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt of India.
The CSIR has certificated that the ICPURE alkaline ionized water is an immunity booster, which helps in the prevention of various infections and diseases. The ionizer produces healthy drinking water with different pH values above 8 with negative Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) to boost the health of the heart, liver, kidney and bone structure.
According to the CSIR, the ICPURE machine has been classified as a next-generation ionized water production machine under the ‘Make in India’ programme. The heart of this machine, the Ionizer, is made using the best grade of cation transfer membrane and electrode plates based on platinum-coated titanium for efficient ionization with world-class software to match the required parameters as per standards.
Paahen Mittal, CEO, ICPURE (India), said, “Our Tagline is ‘ICPURE Piyo, Tandurust Jiyo’. Amid the déjà vu of the third wave of Covid-19 in the country, people have been talking about the immunity boosting methods and immunity boosters. The Alkaline water from ICPURE machine is a certified immunity booster from CSIR-IICT, Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India.”
Mittal added, “We aim to revolutionise the water industry by making ICPURE machines available in every household across the country. Alkaline water from ICPURE machine is inspired by spring water which is generated via passing a mild current through platinum-coated titanium plates without infusing any chemical or artificial mineral.”
The machine gives five different types of pHs ranging from 5.0 to 10.5. Neutral water of 7.0 pH can be used for intake of medicines and consumption by children up to 10 years of age, 8.5 pH gives regular alkaline drinking water by normal persons to regulate pH level in the blood to boost the health of heart, liver, kidney and bone structure with extra minerals and antioxidants, 9.5 pH water can be used for making of tea and coffee making and for cooking purposes, while 10.5 pH water can be used for cleaning of fruits and vegetables to remove pesticides and harmful chemicals.
