Frequently Asked Questions:
1. Why is hiOsilver Oxygen Water supplied in glass bottles? Wouldn't it be
more convenient in plastic bottles?
Glass bottles retain oxygen. Oxygen diffuses out through
plastic. It would be less costly in plastic bottles, but our top priority is maximum oxygen concentration.
Also, plastic imparts taste and potentially health-damaging chemicals to
water. Now, Oxygen Water is also available in 16-oz aluminum
cans. There is a liner in the can so that the water does not contact
2. How much oxygen is in oxygenated waters in plastic bottles?
The other oxygenated waters that we have tested have had from 10 mg/l
(equivalent to 10 parts per million or ppm) to 40 mg/l, as compared to the
50 mg/l to 70 mg/l in hiOsilver. Plastic bottles lose most of the
oxygen within a few months. The oxygen in hiOsilver is retained for
3. What is the best way to drink hiOsilver Oxygen Water?
Straight from a chilled bottle or can -- this provides you with maximum oxygen content.
You can also drink it at room temperature or over ice in a glass.
4. What about the fine bubbles in my glass of hiOsilver?
You need to shake a bottle (gently) or take a big drink from the bottle
to see bubbles (it will take about 15 seconds to see the bubbles). The bubbles are pure oxygen, slowly escaping the water. Just as it takes time
for the carbonation to bubble out of carbonated beverages, it will take an hour or two for
most of the oxygen to bubble out of Oxygen Water.
5. Can I reseal the hiOsilver Oxygen Water bottle?
Our bottles take twist-off caps, but these are not resealable. Even so, kept cold
in the refrigerator, 90% of the oxygen will still be in an opened glass bottle a day
6. Where can I buy hiOsilver Oxygen Water?
In the Western U.S., Chicagoland, & New York City, hiOsilver is available at groceries,
natural food stores & restaurants. If hiOsilver is not available near

Water. In some areas, we have home and
In the rest of the U.S., you can order online, by
phone or fax.

7. Can I purchase a case of bottles or cans at a discount?
Yes, most of the time! Our bottles and cans come 24 to the case. Most
stores will give you a 10% case discount if you ask.
8. What about the name "hiOsilver"?
"hiO" is for high concentrations of oxygen. Our founder grew up in
Silver Spring, Maryland, which was named for a natural spring. There is no silver in
hiOsilver Oxygen Water.
9. How many times a day can I drink hiOsilver?
You can drink hiOsilver Oxygen Water as many times a day as you want. hiOsilver
contains no sugar, no artificial sweeteners, no calories, no caffeine, no sodium. It
does contain a superior spring water with oxygen. Try a bottle in the afternoon,
instead of a soda or cup of coffee. It gives many people a natural lift.
10. How does hiOsilver Oxygen Water freshen a person's breath?
Are you concerned about bad breath (halitosis)? When you drink hiOsilver, the high concentration of oxygen bathes your tongue and the
inside of your mouth. Oxygen encourages good (aerobic) bacteria in your mouth to
flourish. At the same time, oxygen inhibits bad (anaerobic) bacteria. Anaerobic
bacteria are responsible for bad breath, tooth decay and gum disease.
