How Does the PiMag Waterfall Compare to the Turapur

The Nikken PiMag Waterfall reduces many contaminants, like chlorine, chloramine and leadOne of my customers emailed me yesterday asking me to compare Nikken’s PiMag Waterfall with the Turapur countertop water filter from Laissez Faire’s Living Well. I’m always interested to see what else is out there, so I decided to go ahead and take a look.

First, she assumed that I would say that Nikken’s PiMag water filtration systems are better just because I am a Nikken distributor. I have never just said that Nikken’s products are better without comparing the data and I’m not about to now. I’m not blindly loyal to any company whether I earn my income from them or not.

How to Keep Strong Bones

There are many factors to building and maintaining strong bones.Last week I wrote a post about lactoferrin, a protein that does many things in the body including helping maintain healthy bones. Donna Merrill, one of the bloggers that I follow regularly, said that the bone benefit was what appealed to her about that post, so I thought I should share what else I know about how to keep strong bones.

How To Choose the Best Water Filter for You

Choosing the best water filter is a challenging taskOkay, so you need a water filter. You’re on a city water supply and the stuff coming out of your tap absolutely reeks of chlorine, and doesn’t taste very good either. Maybe you’ve read about how dangerous chlorine is. After all, it was put into your water supply to kill stuff, so why would it stop killing just because it is no longer in the pipe?

You’ve probably also tried bottled water.

Some of those taste just as bad.

Some are just filtered city water.

Some are more expensive than gasoline.

What Are the Benefits of Magnetic Insoles?

Nikken has three kinds of magnetic insoles that will help you feel better by taking care of your feet.One of my followers on Twitter recently asked me what are the benefits of magnetic insoles? Instead of limiting my answer to just 140 characters, I decided to answer that question here where I can cover it a little better.

What Are Magnetic Insoles?

Magnetic insoles are inserts for your shoes that contain magnets.

There have been many different companies that have made magnetic insoles in the past, and they are all different. Most of the ones that I have looked at only have a few magnetic nodes and they are spaced widely apart. They do not give your foot good magnetic coverage over the entire surface.

Moving From the Aqua Pour to the PiMag Waterfall

The old Nikken water filter, the PiMag Aqua Pour, is a great water filter, but not as good as the newer PiMag WaterfallAs I said in my last post, I became a Nikken customer and distributor almost ten years ago. One of those many boxes in the picture on that post held my brand new PiMag Aqua Pour gravity water filter. It was great. It held plenty of clean, alkaline water for my family of four. Fortunately, we had plenty of room in our kitchen for it because it was rather large. It was round with a ten inch diameter and almost 2 feet tall. It took up some space and wasn’t going to fit on a countertop under the upper level of cupboards.

I Was a Nikken Customer Before I Was a Nikken Distributor

My daughter playing in my first Nikken orderI was looking for a picture a few days ago on an old backup drive and stumbled across a picture from almost 10 years ago. The picture is of a pile of boxes that UPS left on our front step after my wife and I signed up as distributors with Nikken. Ok, the picture is actually of my daughter playing in the packing peanuts from one of the many boxes. Still, it was our first order. While I was officially signed up as a distributor, I was essentially a wholesale customer for most of the first two years I was with Nikken. I had the big order my first month then followed it up with a much smaller autoship order to get our nutritional supplements every month afterward.
