No. Because it’s so highly concentrated, it costs pennies per day. Here are some examples: A 2oz bottle costs $19.95 and purifies up to 25 gallons of water. This comes to less than $0.80 per gallon. If you drink, say, half a gallon of water a day, the cost would be less than $0.40 per day. A 32oz bottle costs $109.95 and purifies up to 400 gallons of water. This would come to $0.28 per gallon. If you drink half a gallon of water a day, the cost would be $0.14 per day. Compare these prices to what it costs to buy a liter (considerably less than a gallon) of bottled water, very often costing from $0.99 to $1.49. Not only do you save a great deal of money, but by using the concentrate, you decrease the waste stream of plastic bottles by reusing just one bottle as many times as you need. So, using Biotite Concentrate saves resources, decreases pollution, keeps landfills from getting clogged with endless numbers of empty plastic bottles and costs remarkably less too. By the way, we recommend using either glass, ceramic or stainless steel for storing/carrying water, not plastic.

That’s right. Although the water is cleaned immediately, and you can drink it, the cloudiness, if it occurs, may not settle for a longer time. In fact, Biotite Concentrate can be used as a test for the purity of water. If you follow label directions and see no sediments occur, then you know the water you’re using is very clean. And the opposite is true too. If there’s a huge cloud in the water and it takes a long time to settle, then the water was filled with contaminants. We recently ran this test on a high quality spring water that is well known for it’s superior quality, even though over 25 years ago, the EPA stated that there was no longer any source of completely pure water in the continental US. We added an appropriate amount of Biotite Concentrate to this spring water, which came to us in a sealed glass bottle. 24 hours later there were bits of rusty sediment on the floor of the container. We haven’t had the sediment analyzed but this test suggests that even spring water can be contaminated.
Again, this depends on the purity of the water before treatment. Here are a couple examples: if a person uses tap water which has fluoride and chlorine and maybe even ammonia (another water treatment), along with several other things that might be in the water, the use of Biotite Concentrate will clean the water but most likely, a cloud will form and it may take overnight (or longer) to settle. In another example, a household may have a GAC (granular activated carbon) filter system or a de-ionization module, a reverse osmosis unit or a purification system that uses one or more technologies such as UV or ozonation. Biotite Concentrate can certainly be used on any type of water but if the water was initially cleaner than say, raw river or tap water, the concentrate might not produce much of a cloud or any cloud. Should this be the case, it’s entirely possible that only a very small amount of treatment is needed. Since we can’t predict each user’s water quality, the label gives a range of “up to” a certain amount. In some cases, a good deal less than the amount on the label recommendations is all that’s required and the only way to find out how much anyone needs is to simply experiment with different amounts until each individual discovers what works for their own situation.
Yes, it transforms the chlorine into chloride(s), meaning, the chlorine is no longer in the water. It has become various types of chloride salts which fall to the bottom.
Yes, it certainly can. For those who would like instructions on how to dilute the product for this use, it’s simple: just use the same dilution that you do for drinking water, which is approximately 1000 to 1. Other dilution strengths can be used too so it’s a good idea to keep an open mind and experiment a little bit to see what works best for your garden, houseplants, orchard, etc.
Traditionally, It goes like this: take your weight, divide by two and that is the number of ounces of water you should drink every day. Ex: weight–150 pounds. Half of that is 75 so you would drink 75 ounces of water every day, which comes to a little over nine glasses of water, each glass being 8 ounces. It’s important to note that sodas, colas, milk, coffee and a lot of other beverages, do not count towards the total. However, fresh juices, like fresh orange juice, apple juice, etc., do. Some experts suggest drinking one ounce of pure water for every pound of weight of the body. Either way, it’s important to have plenty of pure, structured water to stay hydrated.
Although the article is quite long, some of the facts cited are very educational which is why we recommend having a look.
Yes, that’s the way it’s supposed to be. The strong (electromagnetic) charges of the ionic minerals are attracting each other resulting in these clumps and as soon as the minerals are diluted (by following the label directions), they’re activated and go to work on cleaning up the water.
It’s not a predictable phenomenon. One person might have a headache that lasts an hour or two, someone else could have a rash that lasts for a few days and then fades out. Because we’re all unique in many ways, the detoxing process is different for each individual, not only in terms of how long a detox will last but also, how intense it is. Depending on many factors like age, diet, exercise regularity and dozens of other parameters, detoxing is very often just a brief phase as the body re-balances itself.
“Another way in which the human system transforms the energies it assimilates…..is by virtue of what is known in Western science as the ‘piezoelectric effect.’ This refers to a unique property possessed by all crystalline structures, whereby any sort of vibratory or wave energy applied to a crystal structure is transformed into electromagnetic pulses. The human body contains a variety of tissues with crystalline structures within their matrix, particularly bone, connective tissue and the electrolytes in certain bodily fluids. These crystalline structures have the capacity to transduce various types of high-frequency wave energies to which they are exposed, such as light and sound, producing specific electromagnetic pulses that are conducted by the meridians and nerves and utilized by various organs and tissues of the body. This is the mechanism by which mantra, music and various sacred syllables may be used to balance and heal the body: as the sound waves vibrate through the body, crystalline structures within the tissues transform them into pulsed currents that are then conducted to various organs and glands, depending on the frequency and amplitude of the incoming wave signal.”(from The Complete Guide To Qi Gong–Transforming The Power Of The Universe by Daniel Reid)
In brief, it’s crucial. If you look over some of the information provided in our Resources/Research
page, it becomes clear that proper hydration reduces the daily cellular stress that occurs and is absolutely necessary for the body to carry out the millions of processes that together, we call “life.” Without high quality, energized, structured water, life would cease almost instantly. That’s how important it is.
Although quite rare, in cases where this happens, it’s because the water being treated was already very clean. What’s happening is that some of the sulfate minerals in the Biotite Concentrate are naturally attracted to the glass. This is because really pure water has a pH that is slightly acidic, like 6.7-6.9. When the slight acidity comes in contact with the liquid minerals in the concentrate, the resulting salts are drawn to the glass. The stain is yellowish because the minerals are in a sulfate form and sulfate minerals are yellowish by color. (Sulfur itself is very bright yellow). However, the stain on the glass can be easily removed since it just wipes off. Another option is to use less Biotite Concentrate since you now know that your purification system is doing a really good job. Of course, if you want your drinking water to have a full complement of ionic minerals, you’ll have to decide how much concentrate to use. Again, a bit of experimentation in each situation can bring about a good compromise between pure water and a balance of ionic minerals. After all, Mother Nature always adds other things to water. Some examples: The Great Salt Lake in Utah has ionic minerals in the water, as do the oceans of the world. Mineral springs found in many places around the world also contain an abundance of ionic minerals, and so too, can they be found in high altitude waterfalls and other pristine aquatic environments. To a degree, it’s true to say that Biotite Concentrate is a convenient way to recreate the naturally occurring ions that are present in the waters of the world.
Yes. Clearing the water of possible contaminants and then adding in the ionic minerals produces high quality water. Some people add the concentrate first and then purify their water. While the concentrate reduces and/or eliminates many harmful pollutants and industrial wastes, having a good quality filter system and Biotite is a great combination. The filtering system removes the contaminants but also reduces the energetic structure of the water. Then adding in the concentrate creates the dynamic structured matrix that re-energizes the water.
