Turapur Water Pitcher Review – Why Buy?
The Turapur water pitcher is a new water filtration device that creates hydrogen-rich water that is purportedly better for your health. Here’s our Turapur water pitcher review.
What is the Turapur Water Pitcher?
The Turapur is a water filtration system that looks similar to Brita and other water pitcher filters. You pour tap water into the top of the pitcher, it passes through the filter, and filtered water comes out the bottom.
The main difference between Turapur and other water filters is that it creates hydrogen-rich water. The pitcher isn’t actually classified as a water purification system: instead, it’s a water filtration system that adds hydrogen ions to your water.
Why would you want to drink water with hydrogen ions added in? The makers of Turapur claim that this water helps you feel more energized. It also promises to reduce the effects of aging on your body.
As the manufacturer of Turapur explains, “Hardly anyone in the United States knows about this fountain of youth.”
How Does Turapur Work?
The makers of Turapur claim to use “specially selected mineral layers” in their filter. When water passes through these mineral layers, it receives hydrogen ions. The mineral layers contain things like magnesium. As the water hits the magnesium, a chemical reaction occurs to create freed hydrogen ions.
Hydrogen ions play an important role in the body because they help to balance free radicals within your body. You know how your body needs to maintain a special temperature balance in order to stay healthy? The creator of Turapur claims you also need to maintain a free radical balance. Free radicals are compounds within our body that create oxidative damage and can accelerate the risk of disease. You combat free radical damage using antioxidants – like the ones found in fruits and vegetables.
The power of Turapur’s hydrogen water is that it produces “a super-powerful antioxidant” in the water you drink every day. So instead of eating fruits and vegetables all day to get your daily recommended intake of antioxidants, you can simply drink Turapur water.
By drinking Turapur water daily, you can reduce the effects of aging on your body, reduce your risk of disease, and access more energy every day – at least, according to the manufacturer.
To make a long story short, drinking water is always healthy for you. Turapur promises to double down on these health benefits by making water even healthier.
The creator of Turapur isn’t just making up these health benefits: check out this study from Japan, where researchers showed that hydrogen-rich water improved lipid and glucose metabolism in patients with type 2 diabetes. Researchers didn’t go as far to say that hydrogen-rich water provides anti-aging benefits, but they did say it can have a beneficial role in preventing diseases like diabetes.
The maker of Turapur cites this study – and others – when he explains the benefits of his pitcher.
The Story Behind Turapur
Turapur comes with an interesting story. The creator of the filter, Nate Rifkin, claims he once met an “eccentric man” about to turn 50 years old – although he only looked like he was about 30 years old.
After speaking with the man, Nate learned that his secret was a “weird-looking machine…about the size of a briefcase.” That machine produced water with hydrogen ions. After receiving a sample of that water, he claims he “could feel in my body this fountain of youth is real.”
Nate paid the man $4,000 for this mysterious machine, then started to test the water himself.
He claims he used something called an Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) meter to measure how much a liquid either reduces the potential for oxidation or creates oxidation. An ORP meter is a real device that uses small electric charges to test water. OzoneApplications.com explains that it’s used to measure the cleanliness of the water and assess the water’s ability to break down contaminants.
Nate used the ORP meter to test popular bottled water, tap water, and the water created by the $4,000 electrolysis machine.
Eventually, Nate teamed up with someone to create a cheaper version of the water filtration system. Instead of paying $4,000 for a machine that creates antioxidant water, you can pay a much lower price for a small pitcher. Then, these two teamed up with a manufacturer called Laissez Faire to produce the pitcher in mass quantities.
How Does the Turapur Pitcher Make Hydrogen-Rich Water?
The first stage is a special filtering layer of NSF-certified activated carbon. This layer strips out bad tastes and odors from your water. Then, the next layer of “Ion Exchange Resin” softens the water – much like your home’s water softener works. These two layers make up the first stage and they immediately make your water taste better.
The next stage uses specific minerals to enrich the water and free its hydrogen content using a mixture of three elements:
- Infrared ceramics
The magnesium starts by freeing up the hydrogen. Water, as you know, is made from H20 (two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom). When water interacts with magnesium, magnesium will attract some of the oxygen atoms and pair together with these oxygen atoms. This causes the hydrogen atoms to split from the oxygen, leaving hydrogen behind.
The other layers – infrared ceramics and tourmaline – free up more hydrogen. Tourmaline is actually a gemstone that promises to transform the water into the hydrogen-rich, antioxidant fountain of youth you love.
Turapur is priced at $19.95 + $4.95 shipping and handling.
The manufacturer claims the normal retail price is $59.95, although the creator of the filter claims he would “happily fork over $4,000” for filtered water like this.
There’s a bit of a catch to this price tag: after buying the filter online from the official Turapur website, you’ll be automatically subscribed to the Turapur autoship program, which sends you fresh filters and automatically charges your credit card.
Your first Turapur pitcher comes with filters that will last you a full 60 days. 60 days after you order, your credit card will be billed $45 for a pack of three filters (a 6 month supply).
Every 6 months thereafter, you’ll receive 3 more filters at a price of $45.
Turapur calls this the Priority Pass membership. You can cancel it at any time.
Oddly enough, Turapur isn’t available to people in California or anyone outside of the United States. It’s only available to people in the 49 states not named California. Thea makers of Turapur claim it’s not available in California “due to California regulations”. It’s unclear what those regulations are.
You can order Turapur by phone at 1-866-444-1501 or online at the official website.
About Nate Rifkin and Laissez Faire
Nate Rifkin created the Turapur water filter. He lists his job title as “Underground Health Researcher” for Laissez Faire.
Laissez Faire is a book company based in Baltimore, Maryland. You can learn more about the company by visiting their official website at www.lfb.org. Or, get in touch by calling 877-453-1177. The company is headquartered at the following address:

Laissez Faire describes itself as “an independent publishing and research firm”. The company sells a variety of print and online publications, books and e-books, films, and international conferences.
Nate’s LinkedIn page doesn’t list anything about working at Laissez Faire. Instead, he claims he’s a direct marketing strategist who has been self-employed in the internet marketing world since 2005.
Nate’s official website [Naterifkin.com] lists him as the creator of eBooks like The Secret Life Changing Exercise and Age Reversing Strength. He also appears to have published a number of other books and manuals over the years. The Turapur water filter is also featured prominently on his official website.
Should You Use Turapur to Reverse Aging?
Hydrogen-rich water has shown some evidence that it can reduce your risk of diabetes and other blood sugar-related diseases. However, it has not been definitively shown to be a cure for aging or the “fountain of youth.”
Nevertheless, if you believe hydrogen-rich water is the secret to staying young, then Turapur can help you make hydrogen-rich water in your own home. The pitcher itself is relatively cheap – it’s priced at $20.
That $20 price includes one filter that lasts 60 days. The pitcher gets more expensive, however, after you’re shipped three new filters every 6 months at a price of $45. The company does this automatically through their autoship program.
It’s also important to note that the Turapur pitcher does not accept other filters: you need to buy filters from the company at a price of $45 for a 6 month supply.
