Why is AOX a better option vis-à-vis Electrolysis Alkaline Water Ionizer?
Unlike Electrolysis Alkaline Water Ionizer which uses electricity to ionize the water, shall we say – an artificial way, AOX uses a 100% natural process by infusing your tap water with natural minerals and antioxidants to turn it into alkaline water rich in antioxidants. Requires NO ELECTRICITY at all. Using the electrolysis method to ionize the water into H+ and OH-, the by-products of this reaction are acid water and harmful electro-magnetic radiation which are commonly associated with an alkaline water ionizer. With AOX, you do not have these problems. Moreover, there is no risk of drinking water ionized by possible rusty metal plates.
AOX is proud to bring you the best of both worlds! Natural antioxidant alkaline water but none of the harmful effects or risks associating with an electrolysis alkaline water ionizer. That is why AOX is your Natural Choice!
Can I use AOX water with medication and supplements?
Yes, definitely! Unlike ionized alkaline water which might interfere with medication and supplements, AOX is 100% natural, therefore, it will not interfere with medication and supplements at all. With smaller water molecule size, medication and supplements are effectively absorbed by the body. Hence, AOX is widely used by medical professionals such as Novena Medical Centre, Thomson Medical Centre, Renci Nursing Home, Healthway Medical Group and many more clinics all over Singapore.
Does AOX need electricity to work?
Not at all. AOX natural filtration system does not require electricity to turn tap water into alkaline water rich in antioxidants. The ion exchange takes place in the patented filters, not the electrode plates. Electricity is only used for the chiller and boiler in the hot and cold range.
Does boiling AOX water cause it to lose its good properties?
AOX water has added natural minerals such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium and silica, therefore, boiling AOX water does not cause it to lose its alkaline minerals. However, antioxidant properties would diminish with boiling as these antioxidant properties are unstable, which is a natural process.

What are the benefits of AOX water?
AOX water has anti-aging effects. It also increases metabolism, improves immune system, supplies essential minerals, neutralizes acid wastes and uric acid, restores pH balance in the body, improves blood circulation and many more benefits.
What will happen if my body becomes accustomed to drinking AOX water and I have travel to places where I have no access to AOX?
It is always good to drink AOX whenver you can. When you are travelling, you may bring along an AOX-10 Portable Antioxidant Alkaliser T-bag which costs only $99 and can produce up to 30litres of AOX water with each T-bag.
What is pH and why pH body balance is very vital for health?
pH is the quantitative measurement of acidity or alkalinity of a substance or solution. The pH scale is based on the number of hydrogen ions in the solution and runs from 0 to 14. Ordinary tap water with an equal amount of hydrogen ions and hydroxyl ions is measured as neutral or having a pH of 7. Acid solution is below pH7 while pH above that is alkaline.
The reason why pH is so important for health is that living cells are ultra-sensitive to any changes in pH. Blood pH is maintained within a very narrow range, from 7.35 to 7.45; variances in anything more than a few tenths will most likely result in death. Cancer cells live in acidic environment while healthy cells in alkaline environment.
The acidic foods and beverages we consume daily affect the body’s pH, so do the environment contaminants in the air we breathe and toxins that result from the agricultural practices. In fact, the pH balance in our diets is a largely overlooked issue in today’s health, fitness, and our physical energy.
The proportion of acid minerals relative to alkaline minerals is the major factor we use to understand what is happening internally. Body chemistry has a delicate range between pH 6.8 to 7.4 for proper maintenance of health. The pH range internally is necessary for the whole body to function well physically, emotionally and mentally.
A person who has properly balanced pH will be happy, free of body aches and muscle cramps. They will enjoy being emotionally stable and mentally clear. The results are extraordinary because the tissues will exist in their natural and optimal alkaline environment, conducive for health.
What happens to the alkaline water once it reaches the stomach, which is highly acidic?
by Sang Whang
Among the people who question the validity of alkaline water, the biggest question is, “What happens to the alkaline water once it reaches the stomach, which is highly acidic?” People who have some knowledge of the human body, including medical doctors, ask this question.
Let me answer that question once and for all to erase any doubts about the health benefits of alkaline water.
In order to digest food and kill the kinds of bacteria and viruses that come with the food, the inside of our stomach is acidic. The stomach pH level is maintained at around 4. When we eat food and drink water, especially alkaline water, the pH level inside the stomach goes up. When this happens, there is a feedback mechanism in our stomach to detect this that commands the stomach wall to secrete more hydrochloric acid into the stomach to bring the pH level back to 4. So the stomach becomes acidic again. When we drink more alkaline water, more hydrochloric acid is secreted to maintain the stomach pH value. It seems like a losing battle.
However, when you understand how the stomach wall makes hydrochloric acid, your concerns will disappear. As pathologists explain, there is no hydrochloric acid pouch in our body. If there were, it would burn a hole in our body. The cells in our stomach wall must produce it on an instantly-as-needed basis. The ingredients in the stomach cell that make hydrochloric acid (HCl) are carbon dioxide (CO2), water (H2O), and sodium chloride (NaCl) or potassium chloride (KCl).NaCl + H2O + CO2 = HCl + NaHCO3, or KCl + H2O + CO2 = HCl + KHCO3.
As we can see, the by-product of making hydrochloric acid is sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3) or potassium bicarbonate (KHCO3), which goes into blood stream. These bicarbonates are the alkaline buffers that neutralize excess acids in the blood; they dissolve solid acid wastes into liquid form. As they neutralize the solid acidic wastes, extra carbon dioxide is released, which is discharged through the lungs. As our body gets old, these alkaline buffers get low; this phenomenon is called acidosis. This is a natural occurrence as our body accumulates more acidic waste products. There is, therefore, a relationship between the aging process and the accumulation of acids.
By looking at the pH value of the stomach alone, it seems that alkaline water never reaches the body. But when you look at the whole body, there is a net gain of alkalinity as we drink alkaline water. Our body cells are slightly alkaline. In order for them to produce acid, they must also produce alkaline, and vice versa; just as a water ionizer cannot produce alkaline water without producing acid water, since tap water is almost neutral.
When the stomach pH value gets higher than 4, the stomach knows what to do to lower it. However, if the pH value goes below 4, for any reason, the stomach doesn’t know what to do. That’s why we take Alka-Seltzer, which is alkaline, to relieve acidic stomach gas pain. In this case, hydrochloric acid is not produced by the stomach wall, therefore, no alkaline buffer is being added to the blood stream.
Let me give you another example of a body organ that produces acid in order to produce alkaline. After the food in the stomach is digested, it must come out to the small intestine. The food at this point is so acidic that it will damage the intestine wall. In order to avoid this problem, the pancreas makes alkaline juice (known as pancreatic juice). This juice is sodium bicarbonate, and is mixed with the acidic food coming out of the stomach. From the above formulae, in order to produce bicarbonates, the pancreas must make hydrochloric acid, which goes into our blood stream.
We experience sleepiness after a big meal (not during the meal or while the food is being digested in the stomach), when the digested food is coming out of the stomach; that’s the time when hydrochloric acid goes into our blood. Hydrochloric acid is the main ingredient in antihistamines and that is what causes drowsiness.
Alkaline or acid produced by the body must have an equal and opposite acid or alkaline produced by the body; therefore, there is no net gain. However, alkaline supplied from outside the body, like drinking alkaline water, results in a net gain of alkalinity in our body.
What are Antioxidants and why do we need them?
Oxidation means to decay or age. It results from regular function of metabolism and cell function. In the human body, oxidation is caused by free radical damage. Free radicals that exist in our body grab an electron from one of our cells to become stable and in the process damage the DNA of the cell so that when it divides, the new cell carries the mutant DNA that in turn passes along to the next cell when it divides. This is the cause of many diseases and it is also part of what makes us age. As we age, our body’s ORP becomes higher because we are oxidizing.
Researchers almost universally blame oxidation for premature aging and degenerative diseases. Pollution, chemicals, food additives, pesticides, antibiotics, etc. are thought to dramatically accelerate the oxidation process, increasing the need for anti-oxidants. Many people are turning to supplements to increase the intake of anti-oxidants. However, the water you drink also contributes to the effect of the anti-oxidants supplements you take.
AOX has a Negative Oxidation Reduction Potential (-ORP) therefore it offsets the higher ORP of our body as we are aging. Thus, we counteract the aging process by putting a negatively charged water which somewhat dampens the ever-rising ORP of our oxidizing body.
AOX gives you an abundance of antioxidants to remove free radicals from your body. With its smallest cluster of water and the abundance of negative charged electrons (-ORP), it permeates into body cells readily to reduce free radicals into harmless water. AOX has the antioxidant properties to protect the body cells from damaging oxidation of “free radicals”, boost up the body’s immune system, innate healing, fat burning, detox, repair and rejuvenate cells.
What do I expect after starting to drink AOX Antioxidant Alkaline Water?
It is possible for you to notice a change in bowel habits during the first few days if you have serious constipation issues. You may encounter soft stools and more frequent toilet runs. This is the cleansing process and once it is over, you will feel better. Urine frequency may also increase and colour may darken as more water is consumed and impurities are being discharged from the body.
Are there any side effects of drinking too much Alkaline Antioxidant Water at high pH8 and above?
People have been known to drink as much as 2 to 5 litres of AOX Water every day and have benefited greatly from it, and they have not become too alkaline. On the contrary, one of the most common imbalances people have today that leads to health problems is that they are too acidic. Our body’s pH should be approximately 6.8~7.8 (measured through saliva). A lower body pH creates an environment in our body that is conducive to sickness. Blood pH is maintained within a narrow range, ie 7.35~7.45, variance in anything more than a few tenths will most likely result in death. Cancer cells live in acidic environment whereas healthy cells live in alkaline environment.
Is it safe to drink AOX water without boiling?
It is 100% safe. AOX has passed FDA (Food and Drug Administration in USA), AVA, HSA, WHO and SGS Labs tests to be free of toxins and contain natural alkaline minerals.
How much AOX water should I drink?
The rule of the thumb is to drink about 8 glasses of 250ml of water daily. Drinking one glass before you exercise will help to reduce weight and tummy fat very effectively. You should also drink another glass of AOX water after exercising for rehydration purposes.
Is AOX water safe for pregnant woman and baby?
During your pregnancy your body undergoes many changes. Here are just a few of them:
- You lose a lot of alkaline minerals to the baby;
- The baby receives nutrients from you through the umbilical cord;
- When these nutrients are “burnt”, they turn into acidic waste;
- Since your blood vessels are not connected to those of your baby, the baby must eliminate these wastes through the placenta;
- As a result, your body loses alkaline minerals to the placenta so the placenta has enough alkaline minerals to neutralize the acidic wastes of the baby;
- In turn, your blood quickly becomes acidic;
- In major research in Japan, doctors discovered that acidity is a major cause of morning sickness;
- Drinking AOX water may immediately relieve your morning sickness;
- It can also reverse the premature aging that can happen to a pregnant woman;
- Drinking AOX water can help prevent your baby being born with jaundice.
AOX water provides the right nutrients and minerals to ensure the health of both baby and mother are protected.
Is AOX Water suitable for infants?
AOX is beneficial to infants. For infants who are given milk with AOX water, the colour of the faeces becomes golden yellow and they do not fall sick frequently. A study in Japan showed that infants who are given milk in alkaline water maintain their health almost same as the infants who are fed on mother’s milk.
How are acidic wastes produced? How to do get rid of them?
Consumption of junk food, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages and smoking leads to the generation of acidic wastes. Unhealthy lifestyle coupled with stress at work and home also contributes to acidic wastes. If these acidic wastes are not removed periodically, it will lead to various deficiencies and malignancies. The free radicals also damage the blood cells and reduce the oxygen level. All these may lead to degenerative diseases and cancer in the long run. An easy way to get rid of acidic wastes and free radicals is by drinking AOX Antioxidant Alkaline Water regularly to neutralize them.
Is AOX Water suitable for people who are prone to bloatedness?
AOX micro-clustered water is easily absorbed, circulated and excreted promptly, so it does not cause bloatedness. In case you have severe edema, it will be good to drink a small amount of water frequently, rather than to drink a large amount of water at a time.
Will drinking AOX water help those with menstruation problems?
Water can promote the circulation of blood by nature, so it will be better for those who have irregular menstruation or vascular diseases to drink more AOX water as it can be easily absorbed by the body. (Watch Christy Tan’s video testimonial)
How should I store AOX Water for a long time?
AOX water contains lots of natural antioxidants which may be damaged by free radicals from the air. To get optimum benefit, drink it fresh from the dispenser. If you need to bring AOX Water out, it would be ideal to use an air-tight BPA-free water bottle and drink it within hours. Or when you want to chill it, store in air-tight BPA-free water bottle too and drink it within a week.
Can I drink AOX Water for a long time?
Yes, of course. Alkaline water has been approved as a Household Medical Instrument in Japan for the purpose of Health Promotion and Disease Prevention. More than 10 million Japanese have used alkaline water for 30 years, and it has also been proven by the Welfare Ministry in Japan that drinking alkaline water for a long time is good for health without any ill effects on the human body.
How can I enjoy more uses of AOX?
Soak the rice in AOX water for 30 minutes before cooking. The cooked rice will be more fragrant and taste like Japanese sticky rice.
Soak fish from the market for 10 minutes before refrigerating them. It helps to remove the fishy smell and keeps fish fresh for a long time.
Soak the meat in AOX for 5 minutes before cooking. AOX helps to remove the toxins. The AOX small water cluster size will penetrate the meat, making it tender.
Soak the fruits or vegetables before eating or cooking. AOX’s anti-bacterial properties help to eliminate pesticides and parasites. Its antioxidant properties keep the vegetables and fruits crunchy and fresh.
Drinking 200 cc of AOX water 20 minutes before and after your exercise routine will help to detoxify the body. The AOX smaller water cluster size will flush out body fats and toxins resulting in natural slimming effect.
Hot water often destroys much of goodness in green tea. You can brew green tea using AOX water at room temperature and it tastes just as good. Try it! (It is possible because of its smaller water cluster size as compared to tap water.)
With its smaller water cluster size, it helps to diffuse coffee and tea more effectively; resulting in richer and tastier beverages.
AOX natural minerals help plants to grow faster and healthier. Use AOX to see the difference.
How often do I need to change filters?
It is recommended to change all 3 filters every 6-9 months. However, if the water quality is not ideal, filters might have to be changed earlier than the recommended period.
How much does it cost to change the filters?
Cost of changing a set of filters is $288.90, inclusive of GST, transport and labour.
Take advantage of our filter package and get gifts worth up to $240.
Visit our e-shop to select and buy – https://aox.com.sg/product-category/dispenser-filters/
How do I know when to change the filters?
A Filter Change Timer (FCT) will be given to user to monitor filter change. Our technician will set the timer to count down to 270 days. Call our friendly Customer Service or your Sales Consultant to schedule for filter change. Our trained Technician will change filters and provide general cleaning on your dispenser at your premises too.
Instruction Manual for AOX-FCT360
When the timer has counted down to only 10 days, the counter will generate a short alarm every 15 mins. When you hear the alarm, you are advised to call our office at 64564321 to arrange for a change of filters.
How do I disable the alarm?
Press either the “DISPLAY” or “START/RESET” button. This will disable the alarm for 3 days. The alarm will sound again unless the time counter is reset. In the case of low battery, a replacement of the batteries will be required before alarm will stop.
Replacement of batteries
When the batteries are low in power, a short alarm will sound every 15 minutes. The empty battery symbol on the screen will blink until the batteries are replaced. To remove the batteries, slide off the cover case of the battery, pull out the battery housing unit and remove the 2 AA alkaline batteries. Please note that the timer will reset once the batteries are replaced. In order not to miss the filter change time, please note the remaining number of days and call our office at 6456 4321 when the time is up for filter change. Our office will provide a new set of batteries during filter change.
Why are there some traces of carbon particles in the water?
This occurrence is quite common with new filters. Nothing to worry about as carbon is safe for consumption as tested by independent lab. When this happens, flush away about 10 litres of water to clear the loose carbon particles. Repeat until the water is clear, if necessary.
Why are there some traces of white jelly particles in the water?
Unlike normal filtered water, AOX is rich in natural minerals. Over a period of time, the minerals may solidify as white jelly particles in the storage tank. You can contact our service department to do a complete flushing on the storage tank when it happens. They are tested by independent labs to be perfectly safe for consumption.
Why are there drops of water coming out from my TT tap even when I have already turn off the valve?
When the valve is turned off, water is shut off from the source. However, there will be residual water left in the tap which may sometimes flow out over time. The amount of water should be no more than several drops. Your TT tap is working normal and fine.
Why do I experience slow water flow?
Slow water flow could be due to low water pressure at your premises. It could also due to not-so-ideal water quality, causing the filters to be choked. When this happens, do give our friendly Customer Service a call to troubleshoot or to arrange a service call. Following steps could be taken:
- If water pressure is low, we would recommend a booster pump.
- If the cause is choked filter, we would advise changing of the choked filter.
- If it is near the time to change filters, we would advise changing of full set of filters.
Why do I sometimes experience a sudden burst of water from the room temperature tap?
As there might be gases trapped inside the new filters, sudden burst might be experienced because of the purging of such gases. This is perfectly normal and safe.
What should I do when I go for holiday, offices closed for the weekend / public holiday?
You are advised to turn off the water inlet valve to the dispenser. For hot & cold range, drain off the water in the tank and turn off the power supply. This is to prevent leakage.
