What exactly is Ionized Water?
Ionization simply means to gain or loose an electron. Water that has been ionized becomes either alkaline or acidic, meaning that the pH has been adjusted up or down.
Alkaline water is full of Hydroxyl ions. This is the water we drink that has many health benefits as described below.
Acidic water is full of Hydrogen ions. This is water that we apply only to the outside of our body. It is also great for plant growth.
How does a Water Ionizer produce ionized water?
Water is run over positive and negative electrodes, which ionizes the water. It is then separated into alkaline and acidic water as it passes through membranes. .It accomplishes this by repelling the water now that it has been “charged” into positive and negative ions.
Why should I drink Alkaline Ionized Water?
There are three main benefits to Alkaline Ionized Water.
Alkaline Ionized Water is a powerful antioxidant. People spend hundreds of dollar a month purchasing antioxidants because they are anti-diseases, anti-aging, anti-cancer, which they accomplish through neutralizing free radicals. Free radical damage or oxidative stress causes us to age and causes diseases.
Since Ionized Water is a liquid antioxidant, it is easily absorbed into the body which makes it a much more effective and powerful antioxidant.
Once the Ionized Antioxidant in the form of Hydroxyl Ions (oxygen molecule with an extra electron) donates its extra electrons to free radicals (oxygen molecule that is missing one electron) you are left with lots of oxygen. Ionized Water gives you energy by providing your body with lots of oxygen! This is one of the most incredible aspects of Ionized Water!
Alkaline Ionized Water balances body pH because it is very alkaline. Our diet is often extremely acidic. Soft drinks, fast foods & processed foods deposit acid waste in our bodies that builds up over time and creates an ideal environment for diseases of all kinds to thrive. Look at any cancer patient for instance – their bodies are invariably acidic to some degree. This is, of course, true even with children. Chronic soft drink consumers such as children put themselves in grave danger by allowing their bodies to build up acid waste. Many end up with serious diseases at a very young age. Maintaining an alkaline pH (7.0-7.3) helps us to maintain an environment in our bodies that is NOT conducive to disease. It may take years depending on how acidic your body is, but Ionized Water, because of its alkaline properties, will flush acid waste from our bodies.
Ionized Water is meant to work as a preventative measure, however if you are ill with any disease it always helps to stay Alkaline.
Alkaline Ionized Water has a smaller molecular cluster size. It contains only five to six water molecules instead of 10 to 13 that conventional water molecule clusters have. It has changed from an irregular shape that is 10-13 molecules to a hexagonal regular shape that is half the size. This smaller or microcluster water is much more hydrating than conventional water.
There are two consequences of this. First, Ionized Water is much more hydrating than conventional water and, second, it is extremely detoxifying.
The detoxification properties of Ionized Water are powerful and astounding. They simply cannot be ignored. A Water Ionizer has different levels of intensity because the average person cannot start out drinking strongly ionized Water. This is particularly true of the elderly, who need to start out at the lowest level and work their way up slowly. People who have spent a lifetime building up acid waste in their bodies will suffer headaches and diarrhoea if they drink too much too soon.
How does Ionized Water taste compared with conventional water?
A common remark regarding the taste of Ionized Water is that it tastes smoother than conventional water. This is because of the molecule cluster size and shape. Since it small and regular shaped, it feels smooth because it is. It also does not fill you up and bloat you the way conventional water can do if you drink a lot of it at once.
How long does Ionized Water stay Ionized?
The Antioxidant (hydroxyl ions) will last approximately 18-24 hours.
The Higher pH (alkaline properties) will last approximately 1-2 weeks.
The smaller molecule cluster size will last approximately 1-3 months.
Does Ionized Water have any negative side effects?
Absolutely none, as long as it is used properly. Only the alkaline water should be consumed. NEVER DRINK THE ACIDIC WATER. We have never seen a single negative effect from Ionized Water, either alkaline or acidic, as long as it is used properly.
Who should drink Alkaline Ionized Water?
Anyone and everyone, young and old, human or animal. It is beneficial to some degree to nearly everyone and everything it comes in contact with.
How does Ionized Water affect athletes?
In an extremely positive way, as you might expect. Blood oxygen levels will raise varying amounts with regular use of strong Ionized Water. This increases stamina, endurance and provides the muscle tissue and organs with high amounts of oxygen which the human body often lacks, especially in athletes because intensive training and excessive exercise caused increased oxidative stress.
Why should I buy a Water Ionizer?
The health benefits of Ionized Water are numerous as stated above. However, it is best to have one on hand because the fresher the water is, the better.
To have Alkaline Ionized Water on hand 24 hours a day is worth the price of the Ionizer alone. Once you have begun to use it and taken advantage of its incredible properties, you will know that you have made the right decision to purchase one.
