Dasani vs Nestle Pure Life: Which Water Is Better?
In this water review, we have another water battle!
We’re going to test these waters for three specific properties:
- Oxidation (antioxidants)
- Superior Hydration
Without further ado, let’s begin with the first test!
We are surrounded by free radicals. If you haven’t heard of them before, they are EVERYWHERE! The are in the air, electronics, food, and water.
Free radicals are responsible for cellular disbalance, which leads to rapid aging and sickness. These things are robbing our healthy cells of electrons, which makes them unable to get rid of toxins and take in nutrients.
That’s why antioxidants are important for our body. They come in and give away their own electrons to free radicals, by that saving our cells and keeping them healthy and intact.
Oxidants, or free radicals, are positively charged, while antioxidants are negatively charged. Knowing that we can test our contenders if they are oxidizing our cells, thus making us sicker, or maybe helping our organism fight inflammation!
We’re going to use an ORP meter, a device that shows oxidative-reduction potential. If we get a positive number, that means that the water is creating oxidation. On the other hand, a negative value indicates the water that’s good for our health.
Let’s see how Dasani will do!
We are getting a big positive number, meaning that this water isn’t the best choice for our body since it causes inflammation.
Maybe Nestle Pure Life Water will do better?
Unfortunately, no. Nestle Pure Life Water did even worse than Dasani…
So, both of these waters are oxidizing.
But, just to prove the point that there is water that’s actually good for our health, and has antioxidative properties, we’re going to test the water that I’m drinking!
That’s a huge negative number, meaning that this water acts as an antioxidant!
Let’s move onto the second test!
This test is important since our body should stay in a slightly alkaline environment.
Our blood, for example, has a pH level of 7.36. By taking in acidic food, sodas, tobacco, our blood has a hard time maintaining that level.
But, it manages to do it.
By taking the minerals and nutrients from our body, skin, ligaments, and joints.
That’s how we end up with diseases such as:
- Brittle bones - osteoporosis
- Alzheimer's and other mental diseases
So, for that reason, we want to make sure our blood stays slightly alkaline.
To find out if our water is acidic or alkaline, we're going to use pH drops.
Red, orange, or yellow color indicates acidic water that’s doing us harm, while blue, purple, or dark purple indicates water that is either providing minerals or ensuring our body has exactly what it needs.
As you can see, Nestle Pure Life Water did just a little bit better than the Dasani, and electrolyzed reduced water that I am drinking did the best!
But, to find out if Nestle Pure Life Water is really better, we’re going to do a simple trick to see this result is real. We’re going to blow some air into it, and if the color changes, that means that this result was just "makeup".
It ends up being just as bad as Dasani Water.
This happened because both of these waters are purified, meaning that they were stripped of everything they contain. Including minerals.
So, the producer adds inorganic minerals afterward to improve the taste. Those minerals are not able to fight oxidation, and for that reason, water changed color.
3. Superior Hydration
Due to the condition I have called sickle cell anemia, I always felt underhydrated until I found the right water.
We’re going to find out if Dasani and Nestle Pure Life Water can hydrate us.
By using a tea-bag.
The water we’re drinking should hydrate us, it shouldn’t just sit in our stomach. However, most water brands do just that. And it happens because water molecules are too big to enter the cellular membrane.
In this experiment, a tea-bag represents our cells. If the water is able to enter a teabag, pull out the nutrients, and make tea, then it’s probably good at hydrating us.
On the other side, the water that’s not able of entering the teabag is not able to enter much smaller cellular membranes.
So, let’s see if Dasani vs Nestle Pure Life Water can make tea.
As you can see, Nestle Pure Life did somewhat better, but unfortunately, neither one of these is good at hydrating us.
And now check out how electrolyzed reduced water does it!
This water has no trouble getting inside of the teabag and pulling out the nutrients.
Dasani vs Nestle Pure Life: Which Water Is Better Conclusion
We tested both of these waters for three properties. We found out that both are oxidizing, both are acidic, and neither one is good at hydrating us.
First-round was close, but Dasani did slightly better.
The second round brought us the first tie since both brands tested out as acidic.
And last but not least, Nestle Pure life Water did better in the last, hydration ability test.
All things considered, it’s a tie.
Either way, I wouldn’t drink either of these brands.
