YOUR CURRENT DRINKING WATER OPTIONS EXPLAINED

Posted by LivePristine SHOP on

SPRING WATER: it rains chemicals and acid rain (the pollution cycle). When rainwater falls from the clouds as rain, it falls through air filled with bacteria, dust, smoke, smog, chemicals, minerals, gases, radioactive fallout, etc. WATER IONIZERS: remove acids from tap water; you drink acid free tap water. The water is loaded with the same contaminates found in the source water i.e. fluoride, heavy metals, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, disinfection by-products, etc. Check the TDS (total dissolved solids) of the source water with a TDS Meter, then check the TDS of the product water: both have the same TDS. Don’t get me wrong, the...

MAGNESIUM & CONCUSSIVE BRAIN INJURY

Posted by LivePristine SHOP on

Intracellular magnesium levels are immediately reduced after Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and remain low for up to 4 days. This reduction in magnesium has been correlated with post injury neurologic deficits, and pretreatment to restore magnesium levels results in improved motor performance in experimental animals. Decreased magnesium levels may lead to neuronal dysfunction via multiple mechanisms. Both glycolytic and oxidative generation of ATP is impaired when magnesium levels are low. Magnesium is necessary for maintaining the cellular membrane potential and initiating protein synthesis. Finally, low levels of magnesium may effectively unblock the NMDA receptor channel more easily, leading to greater...
