Most people would benefit from drinking more water. But you should be choosy because some water may actually be doing you more harm than good. This is particularly the case with tap water which may sometimes be full of harmful chemicals.
Choosing alkaline water is a great way to boost your health. It helps to reduce the amount of toxins in your body while increasing alkaline minerals that promote detoxification. You can take this even further by drinking alkaline water that has been infused with molecular hydrogen.
A new Indiegogo project wants to make this easy for you. KOR Plus is a reusable water bottle that turns ordinary tap water into hydrogen rich alkaline water.
The gadget removes impurities in tap water with a coconut carbon filter. Ordinary water is pulled through the capsule where it is infused with molecular hydrogen (H2). It also throws essential minerals into the mix including magnesium, calcium and potassium, and upgrades pH to between 8.5 and 9.5.

Although more studies are needed, research has shown that molecular hydrogen has potential therapeutic actions in most organs in the body. This tasteless, odourless gas improves athletic performance by reducing muscle fatigue and lactic acid buildup, and helps neutralize oxidative stress caused by free radicals. It may also be able to prevent and fight diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and risk of stroke.
There is, of course, an app to go along with the bottle. It will provide you with info on how much water you need to drink daily, along with coaching, guidance, personal challenges and a log to keep track of your water intake.
The bottle is built from durable, BPA-free and health safe materials. You do need to remember to change the filter once a month though. So in addition to the cost of the bottle, there is an on-going monthly expense.
