Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water Claims

Quixtar itself is very careful not to make health claims about Perfect Empowered Drinking Water. Quixtar does describe the following product charatteristics for its' Perfect Empowered Drinking Water:

Pure Water, Remineralized. Perfect Empowered Drinking Water is filtered to remove impurities, then remineralized to put back the good minerals the filtering and ionization process removes. This is nothing special. Most water ionizer systems are set up to do the same thing at a much cheaper cost.

Microstructured Water. Quixtar's claims its' Perfect Empowered Drinking Water is MicroStructured Water that has unique properties that are rarely found in other types of drinking water. Quixtar claims that their proprietary Microstructuring process produces water that is able to pass into the body cells more easily.  There is no science to back up Quixtar's claims its' Perfect Empowered Drinking Water hydrates the body any better than tap water. If you are looking for "smoother" water, another Quixtar's claims for its' Perfect Empowered Drinking Water, all you need to do is purchase a water ionizer, and connect it to a good filtration and remineralizer. I know, because this is what I have done at home. The result, smoother cleaner water, with a high pH. The difference is, my cost per glass cost me pennies, not dollars.   

Ionized Alkaline Water. Perfect Empowered Drinking Water is alkaline water and the measures pH measures between 8.0 and 9.0. This is what gives Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water the 'smooth' taste.

Oxygen Rich (With proprietary MBO technology).  All water has oxygen in it. Quixtar claims that its' Perfect Empowered Drinking Water is enhanced with oxygen.This, supposedly, will help your muscles and improve athletic performance. But this makes no sense. First, there’s little free oxygen gas in water to begin with; adding more oxygen doesn’t amount to much. According to Duke University researchers, a bottle of oxygenated water had less oxygen than what you get taking a single breath. Most important, it doesn’t matter how much oxygen is in Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water, because we absorb oxygen into our blood through our lungs, not our digestive tracts. And, in general, healthy people’s blood already contains all the oxygen it needs. You can’t force much more in. Bottom line is that there are no  published studies that show that oxygenated waters increase oxygen levels in the blood or muscles or improve athletic performance. There is no evidence that Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water provides any more oxygen to the body's cells, or hydrates these cells any better than tap water. Oxygenated water is a scam.

Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water Benefits

The only real benefit I can see with Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water is that Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water is clean water, as it goes through a proprietary 15-step purification process.

Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water Cost

Perfect Empowered Drinking Water retails for about $54 for a case of 24 16.9 fl. oz. bottles. For the average water drinker, Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water will cost you $20 a day, $600 a month.

I own a water ionizer and drink alkaline water. My water ionizer also remove impurities using several high effeciency filters, and also reminerlizes the water. The difference is my Alkaline Water Ionizer create sa 10 pH water, at 90% less cost. So, instead of me paying about $600 a month, I get a better product with a higher pH, and my cost is under $25 a month. Why such a difference in price?  Quixtar must make a profit, and Quiixtar has to charge a heft premium to pay the Multi level marketing (MLM) compensation plan to Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water distributors (or as they are called by Quixtar, Independent Business Owners, or IBOs).

So is Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water Drinking Water Scam?

So, is Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water really a scam? Well, it depends how you define scam. A scam is commonly defined as a fraudulent business scheme, or a swindle. What makes Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water a scam to many, is Quixtar allows its distributors to make unfounded health claims about Perfect Empowered Drinking Water. While Quixtar itself is careful not to make health claims about Perfect Empowered Drinking Water, it did not stop its distributor's from doing so when their product hit the market. many MLM distributors of Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water teach distributors downstream of them techniques to 'trick' people into believing that just an ounce of Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water can improve strength and flexibility immediately. See the infamous 'Tip test' used to 'prove' the eh he "value" of Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water.  Sad thing is its a modern day reminder of wild wild west snake oil salesman. It was only after quite a it of pressure that Quixtar responded to their MLM distributors by stating publicly that they can only use claims and demonstrations which have been approved by Quixtar to promote Perfect Empowered Drinking Water. Quixtar stated that the list of approved claims is available at drinkperfectwater. com or in the "What's New" section at www.quixtar .com. So with that I paid a visit to the drinkperfectwater .com site to see what kind of claims they make about the water, since they would be the approved claims for their distributors to use, here is what I found in the FAQ section:

What are the benefits of drinking Perfect Empowered Drinking Water? The water has been developed as a premium drinking water and is intended only for that use. No specific benefit claims are made nor represented.

So, while many distributors are still making health and fitness claims for the Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water, Quixtar is not.

Bottom Line on Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water

Quixtar's Perfect Empowered Drinking Water is just clean water that will cost you a huge premium. There is no scientific merit to any claim of any health, strength, or improved flexibility benefits that regular tap water cannot provide.
