Why Shower Filters are Good for Your Health

Shower Filter

The best shower filter performs multiple functions of water filtering, hardness removal, disinfection, energizing, and natural medication. They relax the mind and body into the perfect state of stillness which removes the accumulated stress within the skin layers, muscles, and the central nervous system. The influence of the negative ions can heal many of the pain symptoms associated with the neck, lower back, joints and the spinal cord. The ions can also detox the skin and keep it away from the common disorders, infections and the diseases. The deep massaging effects of the far-infrared layers in the shower filter can enhance the circulation and restore the blood pressure to the normal conditions within the shortest span of time.

Water Filtering

The steel filters and the calcium sulfite in the initial layer of the filter remove all the macroscopic and microscopic impurities from the water. The sulfite is a highly soluble ingredient which is highly essential for the skin health by enhancing the protein supplies to the cells and tissues. The healthy effects can be seen in the epidermis, dermis, and the hypodermis layers due to the highly penetrating property of the calcium sulfite. Moreover, it increases the strength of the collagen molecules within the epidermis and the dermis layers. Consistent exposure can increase the tensile strength, flexibility and the elasticity of the skin. The probability of wrinkles’ appearance reduces considerably. In addition it improves the skin immunity levels.

Ullo Wine Purifier Gets Rid Of Sulfites, Aerates

We all love a good glass of wine, but the sulphites added during the manufacturing process as preservatives tend to screw with the taste, and give many people some memorable headaches. The Ullo Wine Purifier uses “Selective Sulfite Capture™” polymers to remove almost all sulphites from your wine, while an adjustable wine aerator can selectively oxidize and mellow the wine right as you pour in into your glass. It is well reviewed and appears to do what it claims, although you’ll have to pay to play: the device itself is $79, while a pack of 6 filters will set you back $20, with each filter being good for only one 750ml bottle.

sploofy-personal-smoke-filter-21752

Ok, you want to quit, but… not just yet. Right? Like, it’s on your to-do list, but you’re just too stressed with other stuff now to add the stress of giving up cigarettes. We understand. Until you get there though, you might want to do something about the freaking smell cigarettes leave behind when smoked in an enclosed space. Sploofy, goofy name and all, claims to make it possible to smoke indoors without leaving any smells behind.

Enjoy smokeless and odorless sessions every time by simply exhaling your smoke into the Sploofy- no batteries needed! Its two-stage HEPA air filter captures over 99% of smoke particles, while activated carbon traps unwanted odors. Watch your smoke convert into clean air in the palm of your hands! It’s light, compact, and even looks discreet

Of course, the proof is in the pudding, but despite the reasonable $20 price tag we’re unwilling to try it because, well, we don’t smoke. Reviews on Amazon seem to praise it though, so there’s that.

The Hipster Is Strong With This One: The dSLR Wheel Of Filters

Filters… we’re starting to really hate them. Popularized by Instagram, they’ve spilled out of the hipster bandwagon and onto the mainstream, where everybody’s breakfast now looks like it was shot in 1969. Why is this cool? Are we just… old? Old fashioned? In any case, these kind of pictures have mostly originated from smartphone cameras, with the dSLR crop so far retaining a modicum of class and elegance. This won’t be the case for long if the dSLR Wheel Of Filters takes off. You’ll be able to take crappy, “artsy” pictures with your $1,000 camera that look just the same as those coming from that $30 plastic Holga from Urban Outfitters. And that, that, my friends, is what the hipster spirit is all about. We feel the same about paying $100 for a T-Shirt that looks like a $5 thrift store reject that we do about taking lo-fi pics with professional level photography equipment. But maybe it’s just us.

Of course our cynicism is going to fall on deaf ears. When something is trendy, it’s trendy. So for those of you that (gasp) are contemplating this purchase, know that the device will fit onto your Nikon or Canon camera, and features a 10-color wheel, and a prism and macro wheel.

For pictures of it, and pictures taken with it, hit the jump.
