What is the Wellness Carafe?
The Wellness Carafe provides clean, safe, refreshing water in a convenient pitcher design!
What are the Benefits of The Wellness Carafe?
- Improved taste and quality of water
- A large 2.2 liter capacity
- Reduced chlorine, lead, and THMs
- Enhanced water with Wellness Technology
- Included forty gallon capacity filter (additional filters available separately)
How does the Wellness Carafe Work?
The Carafe’s multi-stage, gravity-powered filter cartridge will reduce chlorine, lead, and other harmful contaminants. In addition to providing superior filtration, the filter cartridge contains enhancement media, which adds trace alkaline minerals for a unique taste that can be found only with the Wellness Carafe.
Why is the Wellness Carafe Filtration so Effective?
Five layers of natural enhancing media — high-Gauss ceramic magnets; magnetite; Tenko-seki, a far-infrared ceramic that releases negative ions into the water for an antioxidant effect; Bakuhan stone; and Taicho, a mineral with antibacterial and antifungal properties, are combined with a removable granular-carbon filter. This produces energized water with a high antioxidant potential.
One filter cartridge included.
Excellent for plants and taste great too!!!
Have Well Water and wasn't sure if this would work. Bought this to see if i could notice an improvement in my green smoothies and wheatgrass plants. the wheatgrass is growing like crazy. Love this product.
I have disgusting tap water and this carafe helps tremendously, on more funky smells or weird tasting water. Unlike the Brita, this lid is much more secure. The only downside to this is that it does filter slowly, but as long as you fill it after you use it it's really not much of a problem, unless you need copious amounts of water immediately, then you may want to find something that filters faster.
Removed all of the chlorine and off flavors
Despite the fact that the lid broke as soon as I took this out of the box - warning: be very careful with the lid - I love this pitcher. We have really horrid water and this pitcher takes all of the bad taste out of the water. I can't see it taking all the dangerous metals and particles and chemicals out of the water but I trust that it does that too. I'm sure that the taste of the water should be the least of my concerns but frankly I love a really neutral glass of water. Water is what I drink all day - allergic to milk, won't drink sugar pop or chemical pop, coffee makes me hyper. So to have a great pitcher of water in the fridge all the time is fantastic. I glued the cover - it broke again. I called for a replacement - they didn't have one and although I wish it weren't broken ..I still stand by my 5 star rating. I can only say the water is worth the badly designed and broken lid. But I wish they'd replace the lid.
I am impressed, a bit skeptical at first, but what could it hurt, tried it and...,
it really does work, I keep regularity, eat less, feel a difference in concentration/ 'brain fog' (Hashimoto), settles my nerves at work. When i drink the alternative "neutral" water, I feel sick. May be a scam for others, but I am sold!
Water filtration is great, BUT...,
I'm not comfortable "guessing" when I have to change out a filter. If this unit had some sort of filter change indicator--it would be a 5 star product.
Frequently Asked Questions About the Wellness Carafe
When was the Wellness Filter developed?
The Wellness Carafe water pitcher uses a multi-stage Wellness® filter to purify water of chlorine and other contaminants. The Wellness® Filter was developed more than 20 years ago in Japan by Haru Naito, a famous physiologist who coupled purification and Magnetic Resonance Activation enhancement technologies into this water filter.
What is the Wellness Carafe made from?
The Wellness Carafe is made of NAS 30 styrene-methyl methacrylate copolymer. The filter cartridge is made from polypropylene. Both items are BPA-free and are covered by the FDA Regulation.
How does the Wellness Carafe compare to other water purifiers?
The Carafe is designed solely for chlorine and does not contain nearly the same filtration rating the S-III has. The Carafe does not have a formal test format but will remove chlorine to 99.9% since it uses similar cartridges as a Brita, but with enhancement media.
How long does the filter cartridge last?
Filter cartridges are CSA Certified to reduce chlorine and lead for 40 gallons/150 liters of water. On average, this is typically 3 months of use.
Are replacement filter cartridges available?
Yes, replacement cartridges for the Wellness Carafe are available in a package of three.
What does the filter cartridge contain?
The cartridge media contains:
A proprietary media used in all Wellness Filters®, it removes iron, cadmium, and many harmful substances in tap water. In 1990, The Kitazato Medical School of Public Health in Tokyo approved Taichoseki mineral stone as a “natural disinfectant” due to discoveries that water treated with Taichoseki had slowed or even stopped, growth of staphylococcus aureus, bacillus subtilis, aspergillus niger, myrothecium verrucaria, trichophyton interdigitale, and candida albicans, and other fungus and bacteria.
A proprietary media used in all Wellness Filters® that removes lead, mercury, and chromium from tap water. It imparts trace Angstrom size minerals (silica, potassium, and magnesium). The Japanese Government’s Ministry of Health, Drug Approval Division, approved the bakuhanseki stone in 1995 for medical purposes in powdered form, dissolved form, and for use in water filters for bathing and drinking. The Bakuhan mineral adjusts the water to a stable alkaline pH, increases dissolved oxygen, removes harmful substances and enhances the taste of the water.
- SPG Sand
Obtained from volcanic rocks, it has a surface area of 6.16 square meters per gram and provides a highly efficient 0.5-micron level filtration. By removing parasites and absorbing trace heavy metals, SPG sand yields very pure water.
- Granulated Activated Carbon
Made from the highest quality coconut shell carbon and removes chlorine, chlorinated hydrocarbons, volatile organic compounds, tastes and odors.
Having a flux density greater than 4,500 gauss, this creates a magnetic field in the filter for magnetic resonance activation of the water. Magnetite lowers surface tension, increases solubility and increases absorption.
- Far-Infrared Ceramic
Proprietary ceramic media made from far infrared emitting stone that produces hydroxyl ions and hydrogen ions, which neutralize free radicals. Believed to aid the body in fighting immune disorders.
Have any organizations recognized the Wellness Carafe?
Japanese life insurance companies have recognized the efficacy of the Wellness Filter® and now offer reimbursement programs for the filter when a patient receives a prescription from a doctor. This is the only filtration system ever granted this insurance status.
The No. 1-rated medical spa in the world, The Hippocrates Health Institute, ended a 20-year tradition of using only distilled water and now exclusively recommends Wellness Filter® to their patients.
- Before using, hand-wash the Wellness Carafe, preferably with an all-natural dishwashing soap and rinse well.
- Remove the Wellness Carafe Cartridge from its bag and submerge/soak in water for 15 minutes.
- Place the cartridge snug into the Wellness Carafe’s upper reservoir center opening.
- Place the upper reservoir into the pitcher, lining up its spout indicator with the pitcher spout.
- Fill the upper reservoir with tap water, set the Wellness Carafe aside to allow the filtering process to take place.
- Filling the upper reservoir with tap water for the first time flushes out carbon dust from the new cartridge. Carbon dust is a harmless, normal occurrence in cartridge manufacturing and will disappear after one or two flushes. It is recommended that you wash your Wellness Carafe each time you replace the cartridge.
- The Wellness Carafe cartridge is designed to stay wet. One or more days without use may dry it out. To remedy, remove the cartridge and shake it to loosen the media. Soak the cartridge under water for at least five minutes and reinsert into the Wellness Carafe. The Wellness Carafe should be used only for filtering potable tap water that is municipally treated and microbiologically safe to drink. Those with specific water purity needs should consult with their physician before using any water filtration system. Do not filter water hotter than 85°F / 30°C.
