Bio-mineral replacement cartridge - To increase minerals in rainwater, deficient tap water and RO water, Dealer
Packed with approx 95 natural minerals and trace elements, specially formulated, excellent to introduce to rain water, soft water and Reverse Osmosis systems, that are deficient of minerals.
It contains clay balls and Maifenite, (Wisdom stone - which is also renowned in China/Japan and other parts of Asia as the Health Stone. It is also called Maifanshi.
Maifanite is produced in the valley streams of porphyritic pea gravel, called Maifanshi in ancient China.
Maifanite is weathered granite, diorite comprised of plagioclase, black mica, quartz, hornblende, chlorite, etc. It is packed with minerals. Japanese call it "longevity stone" while Koreans called it "medicine stone." Chinese have used it for many centuries to maintain good health. In China it is called ‘wisdom stone’.
Modern research found that it may trap and remove microorganisms and heavy metals like lead, cadmium, chromium, arsenic, mercury, etc, from the human body. It is cardiotonic, liver nurturing and may help support immunity and maintain healthy cholesterol level.
Maifanite has been used as medicine, to mineralise drinking water, but also for bathing.
Maifanite contains a wide range of minerals. Its chemical composition shows that it also contains rare earth elements.
Maifenite or Maifanshi is non-toxic, harmless and has a certain biological activity of compound mineral or medicinal rocks. Its main chemical components are inorganic aluminosilicate. These include Sl2O3, Fe2O3, FeO, MgO, CaO, k2O, Na2O, TiO2, p2O5, MnO, etc., but also contains all the necessary constant elements which are needed by humans and animals, such as: K, Na, Ca, Mg, Cu, Mo and many other trace elements.
The scientific appraisal of which contains 62 elements (one constant element 14, 33 trace elements, and about 15 REE (rare earth elements/minerals))
Its contents meets medical and health standards. Maifanshi in drinking water satisfies the human needs for a variety of minerals, and trace elements. The long-term consumption of such enhanced water supports the absorption of such minerals and nutrients, assist to eliminate toxic substances, and improves metabolism.

FYI: rain water in plastic tanks is 5.9pH acidic, without minerals
Generally: Remineralising is required when water is stripped of minerals such as rain water, reverse osmosis and distilled water. It is also advised to remineralise very soft water.
Rainwater generally lacks minerals and is acidic at a pH of approx 5.9, unless it is stored in a concrete tank, then the pH would be higher.
Plastic tank: If the rainwater is stored in a plastic tank, the water remains to be acidic at pH5.9 and lacks minerals. Rainwater as a regular drinking source leaches the body of minerals. As a result, drinking rainwater longterm without remineralisation is not recommended.
Concrete tank: In a lot of cases the concrete walls of the tank offer the rainwater alkalising minerals, lifting the ph into alkaline, and providing Ca and Mg minerals for the ionisation. A remineralser would not be needed for most of the time, however the range of minerals is very limited to a few minerals: Calcium and Magnesium.
it is recommended to install a remineraliser also for a concrete tank.
IONISATION and minerals:
For ionisation to work, it is necessary to introduce minerals to rainwater. It is particularly relevant for being able to create higher pH 9.5 - 10. In that process ionisation is also offering a better presence of antioxidants.
Reverse Osmosis water: it is stripped of contaminants, which is a good thing, however it is also stripped of minerals, which is an unfortunate outcome. Further the reverse osmosis water is acidic at a pH of approx 5.9. To ionise reverse osmosis water, we need to remineralise it first. > Remineraliser
Made all the difference

We purchased a Bio-mineral replacement cartridge for our system and it arrived yesterday. After over a week without this vital cartridge, we truly could taste the difference it made to our water again. What a brilliant product! We will make sure that we always keep one cartridge in the shelf, so that we will never run out of that beautiful mineralised ionised water again!
