Total Dissolved Solids (inorganic material such as calcium, zinc and copper, chloride as well as arsnic, barium and lead and so many more)
Photo taken by team member, Alyson Nesnick measuring the TDS from the Beyond Organic Springs BEFORE any sort of purification process!
The Beyond Organic springs are located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Georgia. The springs are surrounded by nothing but forest, no threat of run off from anything surrounding the springs, which is why the springs have such a great TDS (total dissolved solids) of 4. The land is certified Organic. For those who have no idea what that means,let me give you an idea of what samples from seven leading brands came back with for their scores. They ranged from 18-247 and that is after the purification process. The springs are measuring at a 4 before any sort of purification process. Jordan had it tested more than once as he did not believe it.
- Lowest TDS (Total dissolved solids) meaning the most H2O and the least of anything else
- Flowing from 130 certified organic acres
- Highest H2O equals most oxygen transporting through body (blood is 92% water where oxygen is transported)
- H2O Transports nutrients to the cell and removes waste from the cells
So why pure water? A few things to share about the water. There is a lot of talk about alkaline water or in other words, mineral water. Jordan’s feeling regarding water is the purer it is, the better. There are two kinds of minerals, organic and inorganic. Organic is what your body is ready to and can easily absorb. An inorganic mineral, from rock, is not easily digested and most is lost.
Example: A growing plant (lets talk about whole grains which provides manganese) converts the inorganic minerals from the soils to a useful organic mineral within the whole grain. When an organic mineral enters the stomach it attaches itself to a specific protein-molecule in order to be absorbed, and then it gains access to the tissue sites where it is needed. Once a plant mineral is absorbed within the body, it is utilized for composing body fluids, forming blood and bone cells, and the maintainence of healthy nerve transmission
Without a healthy organic mineral balance inside and outside the cells, the body will began to spasm, twitch and cramp, eventually deteriorating eventually completely failing if you do not get these. They are not a luxury item. Minerals are small components but essential ones. There are a few inorganic minerals (ones you cannot get from foods but rather from salt itself being added to the food).
The body prefers the richest source of minerals, from foods instead of the hard-to-absorb inorganic minerals from water. Even if human tissue suddenly developed the ability to absorb inorganic minerals from tap water, it would take an enormous amount of water to supply the bare minimal mineral quantities for proper life functions through water alone.
