What is Biophotonic Glass?

Are there any benefits to drinking our water from Biophotonic Glass or Miron glass? While the jury is still out, I wanted to dig a little deeper to find out more. In this blog I cover what Biophotonics glass is and what the possible benefits are.

What is Biophotonics?

Biophotonics is the scientific study of the relationship between light, energy and the human body. Placing emphasis on the importance of light and energy in sustaining life, the word itself comes from the Greek 'bios', meaning 'life', and 'phos', meaning 'light'.

What is Biophotonic Glass?

Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply coloured, almost opaque glass which is thought to be energised by light. In use since Ancient Egyptian times, Biophotonic glass naturally filters the spectrum of visible sunlight, only allowing through Infra Red and UVA light, or 'violet' light. Because of its natural ability to block light, Biophotonic glass is commonly used in organic skincare packaging as it protects precious contents from perishing in sunlight, increasing their shelf life and effectiveness.

What are the benefits of drinking from Biophotonic Glass?

While Biophotonic glass is used to preserve cosmetics, it is also being produced for use as water bottles. Violet light has a higher frequency than any other form of light and is also the same frequency as the human nervous system. It can penetrate Biophotonic glass, designed to energise its contents for the benefit of our health by preserving alkalinity and maintaining freshness.

Drinking from a Biophotonic glass bottle is not only environmentally friendly, minimising the use of harmful plastic and BPA/BPS consumption, but some believe it also has the potential to support general wellbeing by maintaining the natural energy our system needs for healthy bodily function. 1 When filled, Biophotonic glass water bottles can be 'charged' in direct sunlight for around an hour to allow UV rays to penetrate the glass and 'boost' the water.

Want to give it a try ? At Nourished Life we sell a range of Miron glass drink bottles because we believe any type of glass, reusable water bottle is better for our environment and our health (compared to single use plastic disposal bottles). Adults should drink approx two liters of water each and everyday to replace the water we lose through everyday activities and which is essential to a multitude of body functions.2Glass is an ideal option for anyone wanting to reduce use of plastic water bottles.
