The Water Tree Store

Our crowded, modern world is more polluted than nature intended, and it takes a toll on our water. According to the EPA, common water contaminants in US municipal water include microorganisms, disinfectants, inorganic chemicals (like arsenic, fluoride, lead, and mercury), organic chemicals, and even radiation! These pollutants in our water can hurt our well-being, but we can’t avoid our need for water—it is necessary for life. Water is the best way to stay hydrated, focused, and aware. We need it to operate smoothly, facilitate digestion, lubricate joints, push out toxins, prevent fatigue from dehydration, & give us energy. Water is the easiest way to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

At Dream Tree Family and Water Tree Stores, clean, pure water is only our starting point! More often than not, bottled water companies and filtration systems end up removing both the good and the bad from water. This leaves what we call dead, acidic water—water with a lower pH and without the essential minerals of water found in nature.

Our health is very closely linked to the pH levels of the water and blood circulating in our bodies. A low pH contributes to an acidic body that is a breeding ground for disease which is why Dream Tree & Water Tree Stores offer alkaline water solutions. Alkaline water helps to raise the pH of your body so that it can function like it should and hydrate more efficiently.

A higher level of acidity in your body isn’t the only factor that contributes to poor health. Dehydration can slow your metabolism and lead to weight gain, impair your mental abilities, and leave you feeling exhausted, hungry, and grumpy. This is another area that we go above and beyond because many of our products are able to create very small clusters of water molecules, or microclusters. Water that is delivered to your cells in microcluster form are able to hydrate you faster and more effectively.

And don’t be fooled by other alkaline water companies that use electrical ionizers to zap water into a dead alkaline condition! Our patented ceramic conversion process transforms water to an alkaline state while adding essential minerals and antioxidants. Dream Tree water is living water! That's why we offer water solutions for the way that we live! From Antioxidant Alkaline Water to filtered shower heads & Whole House Systems we have something to offer every need and budget.

Drinking Water May Provide Mental Boost

Wow!  If this study was done with "plain old water", the results would have been off the charts with alkaline water!

Drinking plain old water may help improve mental performance, at least on certain brain tests, a small study suggests.
In the study, participants who drank about three cups of water (24 ounces, or 775 milliliters) before taking a battery of cognitive tests performed better on a test that measured reaction times compared with those who did not drink water.
This finding was particular true for thirsty people. The researchers speculate that the sensation of thirst may take some attention away from the task at hand, and thus impair response time.
These results suggest that a "freeing up of attentional resources" occurs when people quench their thirst, the researchers wrote in the July 16 issue of the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience.
However, water consumption may not always improve cognition. In a separate test of rule-learning, participants actually fared better if they did not drink water before the test. Future research should try to explain why drinking water appears to have beneficial effects on some cases, but negative effects in others, the researchers said.
"It might be that physiological processes [of drinking or not drinking water] affect performance on different tasks in different ways," said study researcher Caroline Edmonds, of the University of East London School of Psychology in England.
"Thirst might lead to better performance on some tasks," because the hormone vasopressin, which activates the thirst response, has also been linked to attention and arousal, Edmonds told LiveScience.
Earlier studies in adults have suggested that dehydration can decrease mental performance, and studies in children have suggested water consumption can improve memory.
In the new study, 34 adults were asked to abstain from food or drink starting at 9 p.m., and come into a laboratory the next day for testing. Participants visited the laboratory twice: On one occasion, they were offered a cereal bar for breakfast along with water, and on another day, they were offered a cereal bar and no water.
For the reaction test, participants had to press a button as soon as they saw an object on a computer screen. Reaction times were 14 percent faster among the water group than the no water group.
Water consumption did not significantly affect performance on other tests of cognition, such as memory of words.
It's important to note that it is possible to overdose on water — known as water intoxication — which occurs when water dilutes sodium in the blood.
