Turapur Pitcher Reviews
About Turapur Pitcher
The Turapür Pitcher, found online at Research.LFB.org, is new water filtration pitcher that likes to describe itself as “a fountain of youth” for the antioxidant benefits it can provide for its drinkers.
How Does It Work?
According to their website, most people know that your body must maintain a steady temperature in order to be at peak health, but most people don’t know that there is another important balance your body must maintain for optimal health, and that’s the level of oxidation in their cells.
The “free radical theory of aging” states that without an accident or serious illness your aging is caused by “electrons getting ripped out of the molecules within your cells.” This is called oxidative damage, and it’s the reason why so many doctors and nutritionists promote the intake of antioxidants through both food and personal products.
The Turapür Pitcher wants to provide people with the best way to fight oxidation that has yet been found – with hydrogen. The website describes hydrogen as “the ultimate antioxidant,” saying that it doesn’t react with other oxidizing agents and because it is so small it can penetrate the important parts of your body that need revitalizing the most.
Hydrogenating water is not a brand new process or concept in the health community, but the Turapür Pitcher is the first small scale, affordable water filter that is able to successfully complete this process and provide their customers with a steady stream of antioxidants.
Currently this pitcher is priced at $39.95 and comes with an automatic enrollment in their “Priority Pass” program. This membership is intended to make sure that you “won't go a day without this amazing water energizing every cell in your body.”
This membership provides that 60 days after you receive your pitcher you will be sent a fresh pack of three filters and your credit card will automatically be charged $45. Customers will continue to be sent a new pack of filters every six months until they cancel their membership.
The website says that since their filters will last six months, your Priority Pass membership is ultimately just 25 cents a day. They say that if you compare it to the $1.50 you would pay for just one bottle of water, and you drink three bottles of water a day, that would add up to $270 every two months without the benefit of ionization.
To find the real savings you would find for your family, however, you would need to consider your own personal water bottle costs.
The sales page of their website says that they offer their customers a 100% Three Year Warranty, which states that your “water pitcher will arrive intact and function perfectly once installed. Otherwise, defective parts will be replaced for free. Filters, however, should always be replaced every two months, and wearing out from normal use is not covered under the warranty.”
Unfortunately, however, it does not appear that they offer their customers any kind of standard Refund Policy at this time.

Unfortunately there simply aren’t any reviews for this product at this time, as it appears to be a fairly new product. There also aren’t that many health reports or studies that have been published discussing the health benefits of hydrogenated water, save for a study conducted and published by the National Institute of Health which showed that hydrogen rich water was able to improve energy levels in cancer patients, though it didn’t show any other measurable health improvements at all.
Customers who are still interested in trying this product for themselves should feel comfortable doing so, however it is important to keep in mind before making this purchase that there is no way to receive a refund for this product.

5 ‘Turapur Pitcher’ Reviews
I wanted to buy this Turapur water filter after watching the video. But I wanted to know what it filters OUT. The video was clear about what it PUTS INTO the water: hydrogen ions. Customer service could not tell me what it filters out. All they said is it removes "bad tastes and smells." I pointed out that bad tastes and smells come from chemicals and other substances in the water. They interrupted me when I said this. They could not tell me what was filtered out chemically. I tried to tell the supervisor I was by this time talking to that most carbon filters filter out chlorine, flourine, bacteria, possibly some drugs. They account for "bad smell and taste," so does Turapur filter these out? She did not know, kept interrupting me. I told her she had bad communication skills and hung up. My Rx? Stay clear of this product!
This product arrived, unordered in a plain box, with a bill for over $100 which I can't find right now. I checked my charge card I use all the time and it hasn't be charged to me yet. I've tried telephoning but all I get is "I can't hear you."
I will not send it back until I get a statement that if they ever bill me I will receive an immediate refund and they will send me a prepaid return label before I return it. WHS.
That 'ol saying applies here. If 'they' build it, some numbskull will buy it. This 'pitcher' and its errant advertising, is for the gullible and they'll sell a few for a while, til the public finally 'gets it' and realizes they've bought a pig'n a poke. Where's the FTC, or Any Consumer Protection agency, when these products show up on the net, or anywhere else? The ONLY processed water, on Earth that does what it says it does, by opening up the Hydrogen bond angle to 113.8degs., penetrates a membrane, increasing blood flow, and raising electrons 3000x greater than ordinary distilled water IS Ellis Water, aka DDW,[ Deuterium Depleted Water] or Light Water. with 13 Int'l. patents and 332 FDA studies, and authenticated by UCLA, Dow Corning, and used by countless Corporations, including; Los Alamos, Sloan Kettering, John Hopkins, Dole, & MDs & Researchers worldwide. Note; I am NOT a spokesperson for anyone but, myself. I am an independent Water-Treatment Specialist of 30yrs. and don't like seeing water products nor any other product on the market, taking advantage of the public, for a buck or peoples health [.]
any scientist knows that this filter does not support their claims: “… part of [TuraPur’s Pitcher] is made of metallic magnesium, which, they tell us, reacts with water to release hydrogen gas, of which a minute quantity dissolves in water: Mg + 2 H2O → Mg(OH)2 + H2. What they don't tell you, as any chemist could, is that this reaction only takes place when the H2O is in the form of steam; Mg does not react with water at room temperature. Another example of exploiting the scientifically ignorant.”
This filter seems to work well. Don't know about whether the hydrogen is actually affected, but it does change the "feel" and taste of the water. I already use a charcoal filter on my faucet and then use the Turapur pitcher. They tell you to clean the filter at least once a week with a vinegar and water solution. It was easy to do, just run the solution through a couple times. There was a difference in the rate of flow through the filter, suggesting it was cleaning it. Their autoship program can be cancelled and you can order at your own rate. Customer service was good. As I said, this seems to affect my already filtered water for the better and I am happy with it.
