Water has some unique properties which are only now beginning to be understood. One of these is the memory of water. In fact, water can retain some properties of materials that were once in contact with it. This might be due to formation of structured water. Specialized bottles that claim to enhance this property have emerged in the market.

The current study explores the possible effects of shape, volume, material and color of different containers used for storing water. Additionally, we have also investigated and compared the properties of water filled in some so-called “vitalizing” bottles versus that filled in standard containers.

Using the computerized biophysical Gas Discharge Visualization (GDV) method, we demonstrate significant differences among various types of containers and conclude that the color, shape, material and volume of a container can influence the properties of water.
