Cerra Water is Super Hydrating and Excellent for Our Health
Getting your body in an alkaline state is one of the easiest things to do that can positively impact many areas of your health. The first question you may ask is:
What Is Alkaline Water?
The alkalinity of water is determined by testing its pH. We can measure the pH on a pH chart that tells us if the water is Acidic, Neutral, or Alkaline. This chart is logarithmic to which means a 8pH is 10x more alkaline then a 7pH and a 9 pH is 100x more alkaline then a 7 pH.
By drinking alkaline water you can quickly change the pH of your entire body as the alkaline water is absorbed into all parts of your body. Our blood and other major organs all are naturally slightly alkaline and need maintain this alkalinity to ensure your survival. Frequently what will happen is the body will have to draw alkaline minerals from your muscles, bones or skin to keep these critical organs in an alkaline balance. While this keeps you alive it does put your body into an acidic state which can lead to various types of sickness, diseases and pain.
When you drink the correct alkaline water you are providing this needed alkalinity to every cell in your body. This allows your body to balance its pH correctly and ensures you stay in optimal health. The majority of foods we have are not alkaline along with the type of drinks we have. On the below chart you can look at what you consume most to see its alkalinity. Remember if you have anything that is a 3pH you would have to counter balance this with 10x as much of something that is a 10 pH or 100x as much of something that is a 9pH.
You will notice the majority of foods considered to be healthy are alkaline but the majority of the western diet consists of acidic foods. It is pretty easy to see that the types of food that keep us in good health are also alkaline.
Anti-oxidants are vital to our health and have typically only been associated with certain fruits and nutrition supplements. Anti-oxidants fight free radical damage in our bodies which are breaking down our bodies. What makes Cerra Water really amazing and sets it apart from all the other alkaline water products is its ability to add anti-oxidants into your water.
The Cerra Water cartridge restructures the water which results in negatively charged groups of ions with abundant electrons which work as anti-oxidants. Every single cell in our body is being hammered by free radicals- about 10,000 times daily. Free radicals are unstable molecules that are missing an electron and attack healthy cells to steal an electron. Free radicals cause oxidation which is the process of a nail rusting, an apple turning brown or a body turbo aging. Free radicals cause cellar damage and increase degeneration. Cerra Water has a very high level of anti-oxidants which may help reduce inflammation, pain, and slow down the aging process.
The mechanism in the Cerra Water cartridge uses the special minerals in combination with the standard water which is poured through the cartridge to generate the H2 molecular hydrogen and the micro clustered negatively charged hexagonal water (based on the resultant OH– Ions).
Molecular hydrogen is another form of Antioxidant which reduces oxidative stress. As well there appears to be a mechanism within molecular hydrogen to provide cell signaling, which provides cellular information for proper cell function.
What is Hexagonal Water? For billions of years, water has been hexagonal—an organized matrix
of six water molecules often referred to as "structured micro-water". When water is exposed to pollution, however, the molecules hold onto this new traumatic memory and cluster into what is commonly described as "non-structured macro-water". This cluster is comprised of hundreds of water molecules. Even after water has been filtered and purified, it retains this memory imprint and continues to macro-cluster. Cerra Water has the unique ability to remove this pollution imprint from the memory of the water molecules and restructures them back to the hexagonal micro-clusters. The regular consumption of the liquid crystals known as hexagonal water has been recognized as one of the most important keys to improved health. It has been associated with rapid hydration, heightened immune function, the efficient removal of toxins, better nutrient absorption, longevity, weight loss, and overall greater health.
This micro clustered water is also now known as; exclusion-zone (EZ) water or the fourth phase of water. The OH– Ions in the Cerra Water form the micro-clustered hexagonal water which is also referred to as H302 which has the characteristics including having the negative charge and being alkaline.
The nature of the water molecules in our bodies cellular structure is also now believed to have this same “structure”.
Dehydration is the main condition that encourages pathogenic growth and disease in the body. Although many people ( athletes) drink copious amounts water they are still chronically dehydrated. Recent surveys have indicated the 90% of American are chronically dehydrated. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak it is mistaken as hunger. Even mild dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%. A mere drop of 2% hydration can trigger fuzzy short- term memory, trouble with basic math and difficultly focusing. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) proves that the Cerra Water clusters are less than 1/3 the size of a regular water cluster hence more absorbable. The smaller water clusters have a much easier time crossing the cell membrane through the aquaporins (portals into the cell), leading to enhanced hydration as the water’s molecules are more easily absorbed by the body’s cell structures. Cerra Water is far more hydrating than regular water since it is a much smaller water cluster and can easily be absorbed into the cell. Cerra Water is one of the few water companies to have done the nuclear magnetic resonances of water clusters proving its micro-clustering effects.
You can perform your own home demonstration of enhanced absorption by using the teabag test. Place a new black tea bag into a glass of Cerra Water and another one into a glass of tap water at the same time and compare the difference in colour. The Cerra Water immediate absorbs the tea as indicated by the much darker tea coloured water as compared to the tea regular water.
Energized - Biometric Frequency Infusion Technology
All our Cerra Water cartridges are infused with our propriety Biometric Frequency Infusion Technology ( BFIT) which imbibes the water with full spectrum of healing frequencies. Its been proven that water holds memory or frequencies. This is the basis of homeopathy. Cerra Water not only removes all the previous negative energetic frequencies in the source water but now put in a full spectrum of over 18, 000 healing frequencies in to the Cerra Water. Regular water is transformed by the energy frequencies it absorbs as it passes thru the Cerra Water cartridge. This has a very subtle but profound effect on one's health.
It has been proven that if a substance is placed in water then the water will carry the memory of the substance even when no measurable molecules of the original substance remain. The water will absorb the frequencies of the substance which can have a negative or positive effect on our health. Simply removing the contaminants and toxins form the water is not enough. We must remove the energetic impressions of the chlorine etc and other contaminates from the water to truly make it healthy, life giving water. Cerra Water is one only filter that has this BFIT that not only removes the energetic contaminants but to infuse the water with thousands of healing frequencies.
Other water ionizers only addresses the material properties of the water while ignoring it's profound energetic properties.
- The electric ionizers put out a very strong EMF's as measured by a Gauss meter. We are now finding that these toxic EMF frequencies are in the water and have a very gradually but long term negative effect on our health! One cannot put highly charged water that is created by running electricity thru the water without some long terms effect on our delicate magnetic field.
- The cheap imitation alkaline pitchers can have lead, aluminum, mercury etc in their filter cartridge. Independent laboratory tests have proven that the aluminum does leach into the water. What are these heavy metals doing energetically to the water? The energetic signature of heavy metals then is in this alkaline water and will have a negative effect on our energetic field.
"Water is the life blood of the earth. When water is healthy it has a complex structure that enables it to communicate information, carry energy, nutrients and healing, to self-cleanse and discharge wastes."
~Viktor Schauberger, Forester, Naturalist and Water Visionary
Is All Alkaline Water The Same?
You can create alkaline water dozens of ways but simply being alkaline does not mean you will receive the health benefits of alkaline water. You can add baking soda, cheap calcium or even bleach to water all which will spike the alkalinity but none will actually provide the benefits of alkaline water. This is because our body needs absorbable and balanced alkaline minerals in the water. We can only absorb so much of a single mineral so simply dumping 100g of calcium into a glass of water bringing it to a 10pH won’t do you any good, you will probably only absorb 1-5g of the calcium leaving your body to process out the rest.
The secret behind Cerra Alkaline Water is adding the perfect profile of alkaline minerals including calcium, magnesium, zinc and potassium in correct amounts and ratios that the body can effectively absorb. When you drink Cerra Alkaline Water you get all the benefits of the alkaline water.
Why Not All Alkaline Water Is Safe
Certain types of alkaline water can actually be harmful to the body and are referred to as “artificial alkaline water”. There are several types of artificial alkaline water including electrical water ionizers, some store bought alkaline water, cheap knock off alkaline water pitchers & other units.
These types of artificial, high calcium un-absorbable alkaline water, can all be dangerous as they trick the body into thinking it has more alkalinity then it actually does. This creates a very unbalanced condition in the body. When this happens the body can dump its real alkaline mineral which isn't good. In the short run people may notice positive results but over time artificial alkaline water can produce health problems.
- Electrical Water Ionizers - These types of water ionizers used electromagnetic plates to pull the alkaline minerals to one side and the acidic minerals to another. This can gives the illusion of very high alkaline water with but the presence of the beneficial minerals is very low. Also calcium solutions are frequently added to make the machines produce a 10pH; this level of calcium is not absorbable by the body.
- Store bought or bottled alkaline water – Frequently stores will just add coral calcium to the water and call it alkaline water. Again this does not help the body as the calcium levels are too high that the body cannot absorb and now must flush out.
- Cheap Knock off alkaline Water Pitchers – Most of these other units are coming out of China and mainly just use calcium to increase the alkalinity. They look the same, the pH tests the same but there is too much calcium and the body cannot absorb it and must flush it out. Frequently you will find the water from these units can leave hard water residue.
Cerra Alkaline Water, The Way Nature Makes It
Cerra Alkaline, Anti-Oxidant, MIcro-clustering, Hydrogen Water is one of the only truly natural alkaline waters available as it mimics how the earth has made natural alkaline water for millions of years. There are a few sources of natural alkaline water left in the world, including some hot springs, but most no longer exist due to pollution. In nature when it flows over rocks and clays it picks up these alkaline essential minerals which bond with the water molecules. Cerra Water is produced in a very similar fashion but instead of flowing over rocks and clays the water flows over our Cerra Ceramics inside the filter. These Cerra Ceramics are made up of these specific minerals and clays and mimic how the process occurs in nature.
Why Filtering Water Is Not Enough
Many people think that filtering water is good enough, and if you remove the contaminants it is safe to drink. Unfortunately it is not that simple, while just filtering the water removes harmful contaminants but it also removes the beneficial alkaline minerals in the water! Using a standard carbon filter will actually reduce the pH of water making it 1-2 points more acidic. That means your Brita filter will actually turn your tap water at a 7 pH to a pH of 5-6, 10-100x more acidic. Water is designed to have natural minerals in it and when you strip it of these natural minerals you end up with acidic water that is full of free radicals.
The Cerra Alkaline Water Filters can remove harmful contaminants and pollution from the while also adding the beneficial alkaline minerals and adding free electrons reducing the ORP giving the water anti-oxidants properties plus molecular hydrogen is added.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much water should I drink?
A: If you are new to alkaline water you should start out drinking alkaline water slowly with only a few glasses per day as to not trigger a de-tox. After that you should drink half you body weight in ounces.
Q: Can I have Cerra Water with medication, vitamins or supplements?
A: You can have Cerra Water with vitamins and supplements.
Do not take Cerra Water directly with medication as it will increase the amount you absorb. You may have Cerra Water 15 minutes before or 15 minutes after taking your medication.
Q: Why is the Cerra Water Pitcher more expensive than other Alkaline Pitchers?
A: The Cerra Water Pitcher is made of only high quality materials. Other cheaper alkaline pitchers are sold cheaper because they are made of low quality materials from China which is many cases are unsafe and toxic. We cannot price the Cerra Watre Pitcher at the same price as these other "cheap" alkaline pitchers due to the higher cost of safe quality materials that we use.
Q: Why isn't Cerra Water found in major retail chains?
A: Major retail chains are unable to educate consumers of the quality of the Cerra Water technology and quality. When sitting side by side on a shelf next to a $59 knock off alkaline pitcher they look similar. Most retail chains will sell whatever consumers will buy easily and many consumers just want the lowest price possible.
Instead Cerra Water is carried by specialty health stores and distributors who only want to carry high quality products as they care about their customers and want them to take home a product which will improve their health.
Q: How long do the filters last?
A: This depends upon source water. The cleaner the water (low TDS) the longer the filter will last. With poor water it water it will last a minimum of 65 gallons(250 liters), between 2-3 months, but with pre-filtered or very clean water it will last up 200 gallons(750 liters). This is generally between 3 - 5 months. You should be using microbiologically safe water or tap water and not well water or water that has not gone through any pretreatment.
Q: When do I change the filter?
A: The indications that Cerra Water cartridge needs to be replaced are:
- pH drops to less than 8. This means the anti-oxidant levels and the micro-clustering effect has also dropped.
- The water is running thru the filter very slowly despite activation.
- The taste of the water changes.
Q: My water is not very alkaline, what do I do?
A: NOTE: Please insure that your pH testing kit is not old. If your Ph reagent drops have been exposed to light or air it may have some oxidation occurring and it will not give you a true reading on the PH of your water. You may need a fresh pH testing kit to get an accurate reading. The pH strips in the Health Food store are designed to measure the pH of saliva and urine, and they are not accurate for water.
There are 2 reasons why your alkalinity might not be as high as it should be. 1. Cartridge has not been activated 2. The water is channeling in the cartridge
1. Activating the Cartridge
- You need to activate the cartridge by soaking it under water for 30 minutes and then running about 1-2 pitchers of water through the pitcher. If the Cerra-Ceramics are not soaked thoroughly they will not work. Our newest filters take longer to be activated but perform longer with better consistency. Give the pitcher a week to fully activate. Usually the pH will increase daily until it is in the 8.5- 9.5 range.
2. Water Channeling
- To prolong the life of the cartridge it will need to be reactivated. “Water channeling “can happen when the water running thru the cartridge takes the same path every time (the path of least resistance). The water is then touching the same bio-ceramic beads which deplete the bio-ceramics beads. To resolve this issue, take the cartridge out and shake it or tap it to redistribute the bio-ceramics. You may notice that the first water running thru needs to be thrown out because the carbon dust is being flushed out. You should do this every 2-4 weeks when they wash their pitcher. Once the cartridge has been reactivated then you will notice that the pH and ORP return to their former state. The life of the cartridge will depend upon the source water.
Q: How can I adjust the pH, anti-oxidants and micro-clustering in my water?
A: If the water in the pitcher is touching the filter then it will continue to increase in anti-oxidants, micro-clustering and alkalinity. The longer the water is in contact with the cartridge the stronger it will become. Leave the water in the pitcher touching the cartridge overnight and get into the habit of topping up the water in the pitcher every time you use it. This way there is always a full pitcher of alive natural alkaline, anti-oxidant micro- clustered water. If you want to lower the pH of the water, drink the water immediately and do not let it sit in the pitcher touching the cartridge. The maximum molecular hydrogen in the water is also achieved where you drink the water immediately after is passes through the cartridge.
Q: How long will each Cerra Alkaline Filter last?
A: Cerra Alkaline Water Filters will last between 2-5 months depending on your source water. Water that is generally cleaner will last longer while dirtier water that requires more filtering will use up the filter more quickly. You should be using microbiologically safe water or tap water and not well water or water that has not gone through any pretreatment.
Q: What contaminants does the Cerra Water cartridge remove from the water?
A: The Cerra Water Cartridges are designed for use with only potable water. Cerra Water cartridges remove/reduce the following standard contaminants, chlorine, chloramines, iron, sodium, aluminum, antimony, arsnic, barium, berylium, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, manganese, mickel, selenium, silver, thalliium, zinc, sulfate(SO4), bromochloromethane, bromoform, dibromonchloromethane, methyl chloride, mercury.
Depending on the source water there may be other less typical items in the water which are also reduced/removed. All source water varies and there are different levels of substances in the source water.
Q: What minerals are added to the water?
Q: Does the Cerra Water Cartridge take out Fluoride?
A: The Cerra Water cartridge reduces fluoride but does not significantly remove it, as fluoride is very difficult to remove from the water. Any filter system that can take out fluoride also strips of water of all the minerals etc.
The Cerra Water cartridge does remove/reduce the chlorine, chloramines, heavy metals, pesticides etc.
The most reliable way to get rid of fluoride is to use a Reverse Osmosis system which takes out everything-good and bad. Many people with fluoride in their water will prefilter the water to remove the fluoride and then run it thru our Cerra Water pitcher to put all the goodness back into the water; ionic minerals, negative hydroxyl ions, anti-oxidants, molecular hydrogen and restructure the water to make it more absorbable. This is then the best of both worlds.
Q: Why does my Cerra pitcher have this cloudy white film on its sides?
A: If your source water is very hard with lots of minerals the water can't absorb them all so a cloudy film of minerals (calcium and magnesium) will build up on the inside of the pitcher. The easiest way to remove it is to soak in diluted vinegar since the acid will dissolve the mineral build up. Your pitcher is still good to use despite it being a bit opaque. This happens regularly in areas with hard water.
Q: Why does my water have grey with black flecks in it?
A: We use a very fine certified carbon to clean the water. The finer the carbon the better it is at removing the contaminants. When you first start using your pitcher you may notice that some carbon dust has slipped thru the bottom screen.
Q: The taste of the Cerra water is very different from what I am used to. Is this normal?
A: The Cerra Water is loaded with minerals (especially magnesium) and negative hydroxyl ions both of which add a taste to the water. Many people enjoy the taste since it tastes "like real water is supposed to" and can have sweet taste. If you have been drinking very purified water or Reverse Osmosis water it will taste very different since you are not used to the mineral taste.
Q: Why does my Cerra Water suddenly taste a bit strange?
A: If there is a big release of magnesium too quickly then than you can get a very strong mineral taste. Usually soaking the cartridge over night and running it thru the filter will bleed off the intensity of the strong mineral taste. Please be assured that there are no chemicals in the water, just too much of a good thing. The filter will calm down with time. If the mineral taste is too strong then do not leave the water touching the filter but drink the water after it has run thru the cartridge. If the water in the pitcher is touching the filter than it will continue to increase in anti-oxidants, micro-clustering and alkalinity.
Q: Can I use my Reverse Osmosis (RO) water with the Cerra Water Pitcher?
A: RO water is devoid of minerals which is why it is referred to as dead water, but is also very aggressive water. RO water grabs minerals even from your body which is why RO water diminishes your own natural minerals leading to health issues. If you put RO water thru the Cerra Water cartridge, then the RO water absorbs the ionic minerals and hydroxyl ions (this adds anti-oxidants, molecular hydrogen and is responsible for the micro-clustering of the water) better than regular water. This combination is the best of both worlds... clean pristine water with only the best added ( right combination of minerals, negative hydroxyl ions, molecular hydrogen) to make the healthiest water possible. If you are using RO water in your Cerra Water pitcher, your cartridge will last an extra month or longer. When you use prefiltered water the cartridge does not have to work at cleaning the water so it does not deplete as quickly.
Q: What does Ionic Mineral mean?
A: Ionic minerals means that they have a positive (+) or negative (- ) a charge to them. Our minerals have a negative charge to them. In order for minerals to be absorbed thru the aquaporins in the cells they need a negative or neutral charge. A bit like a gate pass you have to present to the gate keeper. That is one of the reasons why our minerals get absorbed at the cellular level. The body doesn't distinguish if the minerals are from a plant source or earth. This is the reason why many of the health food stores now sell ionic minerals.
