Our goal was to make the most Premium Sea Moss gel available in the UK, with maximum benefits, that was affordable and accessible to everyone. So we blend the finest sea moss varieties with filtered alkaline water stored in copper tanks to bring you only the best.
Why Alkaline pH 9.0 Water?
At Mermoss we use key limes in our unique making process. We blend only with pH 9.0 Alkaline water in all our sea moss gels to provide additional health benefits and maximise the power in our sea moss blends.
What Makes Alkaline Water Different?
Water is a combination of hydrogen and oxygen (Hence H2O). The pH level of water determines how acidic or alkaline it is. The pH scale ranges from 0-14. A neutral pH is 7 and the balance between acid and alkali. If water is measured as below 7 on the pH scale, it is considered acidic, and if above 7 it is alkaline.
In the UK water regulations state that tap water pH should be between 6.5 and 9.5. However this varies hugely as the pH of water coming into treatment plants varies from region to region according to geology and a few other factors.
Enthusiasts claim that the increased hydrogen in alkaline water provides greater hydration than regular water.
Water that is more alkaline supposedly reduces acid in the bloodstream and:
- Boosts metabolism
- Improves the body's absorption of essential minerals
- Increases energy (by increasing blood oxygen levels)
- Slows aging
- Improves digestion
- Improves hydration
Mermoss Sea Moss is a great supplement to support an alkaline diet.
Ayurvedic Principles in Mermoss Sea Moss
We store our filtered alkaline water in 100% pure high quality food grade copper tanks for additional benefits.
The concept of storing water in a copper water bottle or other copper vessel has its origins in Ayurvedic principles and the practice is gaining increasing attention from the scientific community.
“If you hold water in a copper bowl... the water takes certain qualities from the copper that are primarily good for your liver, but also for your health and energy in general.” – Sadhguru, Indian yogi, mystic, and philanthropist
Copper vessels have an alkalising effect on the water, making it even more beneficial for your health. This happens when the copper ions are released into the water, increasing its pH. Copper gives water a positive charge, and after the copper leaches into the water, it provides antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant properties. The study that revealed this information also found that keeping contaminated water in copper cups for 16 hours drastically reduces the number of harmful microbes found in the water.
The copper ions that are released into the water over time also serve to provide an additional intake of this important mineral, which supports many important bodily functions. Copper has been found to support the production of red blood cells, the absorption of iron, the regulation of the heart rate and blood pressure, the immune system, connective tissue and bones, the brain and the heart, while also preventing inflammation and prostatitis.
