Water Ionizers. Alkaline Water Review. Scam Or What?

Article / Review by on December 23, 2010 – 10:20 amOne Comment

What is Ionized Water? What are the experts saying?

Wikipedia quote: “There is no empirical evidence to support claims made by manufacturers that drinking ionized water will have a noticeable effect on the body. Drinking ionized water would not be expected to alter the body’s pH.”

Alkaline Water has also been called an outright scam by some.

However, there seems to be no clinical trial disproving the effectiveness of alkaline water (or ionized water).

Scientists in Japan and throughout Asia are continuously studying, researching and testing the effects of alkaline water on the human body. It has been found that alkaline water neutralizes the acidity produced internally as a result of daily stress, poor diet and excessive exercise. Since most of the foods we eat create acid waste, it is important to drink alkaline water in order to maintain a healthier, balanced life.

Furthermore, the same Wikipedia article goes on to say:

Electrolyzed water has been used by the food industry to sanitize food products; though effective in bacterial solutions, it was found less useful when sanitizing utensils, surfaces and food products. Acidic electrolyzed water (pH 2.3–2.6) may have use as a seed surface disinfectant or contact bactericide.

How do Water Ionizers Work?

Water ionizers are different to water filters because the water you get from an ionizer has undergone an improving scientific alteration, while a filter merely filters out harmful elements from your tap water.

Water undergoes a scientific process to become alkalized, micro-clustered and ionized. This process occurs within the actual ionizers. The ionization process begins with conventional water from your faucet going through two multi-stage filters where it is filtered to 99.99% purity. The first filter is an active carbon filter and the second filter is a ceramic based filter that pre-ionizes the water before moving on to the actual electrolysis chamber. Some manufacturers suggest you buy a pre-ionizer since their models do not have this. Because of this pre-ionization, Tyent produces higher pH and ORP levels than the competition. Next, water goes to the ionization chamber where the water flows over seven (7) platinum-coated mesh titanium electrodes where electrolysis then takes place.

Ionized Water is a Powerful Antioxidant

Orange Juice - An Antioxidant

Imagine having the ability to take normal tap water and turn it into an antioxidant with a NEGATIVE ORP (or charge), which retards the aging process. Put simply, a high or rising ORP causes oxidation and therefore aging. The negative ORP of Ionized Water literally retards the aging process by counteracting this rising ORP. Ionized Water essentially renews us at a cellular level. This is as close as we can ever hope to get to a Fountain of Youth, as incredible as that may sound.

For instance, fresh squeezed orange juice has a negative ORP of -250, although we can only drink a few glasses of fresh orange juice per day.We can drink as much Ionized Water as we wish to in a day. Many people drink as much as two gallons of Ionized Water per day.

Ionized Water’s other Antioxidant property: Hydroxyl Ions

Hydroxyl ions

The other Antioxidant quality of Ionized Water is hydroxyl ions. Hydroxyl ions are oxygen molecules with an extra electron attached to them (this is similar to all antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E). Hydroxyl ions scavenge for free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that cause us damage. When a hydroxyl antioxidant and free radical cancel each other, the result is a body with more oxygen and therefore more energy.Oxygen is one of the most exhausted nutrients in our body because of our diet and the Earth’s oxygen-depleted environment today. Oxygen destroys cancer cells as well as bacteria and viruses that enter the body. It also carries away acid waste from body tissue. Oxygen is vital to human health, and is our most important nutrient. A tall glass of strong, ionized water first thing in the morning naturally helps you to wake up.

Hydroxyl ions

To get the full power of Negatively Charged, Antioxidant, Oxygen-Rich, Ionized Water, it must be consumed fresh and strong, right out of the tap.

Your ionized water will contain thousands of tiny bubbles when it pours out of the ionizer. Those bubbles are hydroxyl ions, which are the antioxidants and the reason for the Negative ORP. ORP is the most fragile aspect of Ionized Water, lasting only a maximum of 18-24 hours, which is why it is important to consume ionized water when it is fresh out of the ionizer.

Ionized Water is very Alkaline and helps balance the body’s pH

The human body tends to be acidic because our diet is comprised of cooked foods, pasteurized or otherwise processed foods. Soft drinks are the most acidic substance a person can put into their body. This acidic condition creates an ideal environment for disease to thrive.For example; accumulated acid waste in the joints encourages inflammation and arthritis. Because it is very Alkaline, Ionized Water dissolves accumulated acid waste and returns the body to a balance. Keeping ourselves Alkaline is the first line of defense in fighting any disease.

Ionized Water is up to six times more hydrating than conventional water.

Water makes up over 80% of our bodies. Ionized Water is fundamentally different from conventional water. That is, the size and shape of the water molecule cluster is reduced in size and changed to a hexagonal shape, which allows the water cluster to pass through our tissue quickly and easily.One of the primary causes of disease is chronic cellular dehydration (or not providing the body with sufficient water), a condition which leaves the body’s cells in a perpetual state of weakness and defense. Most people simply do not drink enough water (at least half our weight in ounces) to keep ourselves properly hydrated and therefore healthy.

Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying

The reduced size and shape of the water molecule clusters also has a detoxifying effect. Once reduced, these water clusters pass through the body’s tissue easily and push out toxins and acid waste quite effectively. Water Ionizers have several levels of strength so people who are toxic can begin by drinking mild Ionized Water, and increase the level of strength slowly as they acclimate to it.

Minerals that are ionized are more bio-available

The body can absorb ionized minerals much more efficiently and can therefor make use of them where they are needed throughout the body. Minerals are some of the most important nutrients the body needs, yet mineral deficiency is common. Drinking Ionized Water is an efficient and effective way for the body to get its minerals.

    Alkaline Water. You have heard a lot about it and you want to know if what is said about it is true or a bunch of hipe. A least those were my questions after my Doctor recommended that I should start drinking it. While the water is not the ware all be all medical cure, it is a step in the right direction of cleansing the body so that it can do it’s job of healing it’s self.
    The realistic fact is that people need to recognize the truth about Alkaline Water and all the benefits it will give you. We need to get the word out about Alkaline Water. The AMA and the Big Drug Companies do not want you to know the water really does work. They would be out of business if we all were healthy and did not need them any longer. The water really works. It cleanses the body of contaminants that we put in it by everyday living, floods your body with antioxidants that lets the body do its job of healing itself, and restores your natural wellness. For instance, this is how antioxidant are measured, the more negitive -mV the higher antioxidant level. Tap Water has positive +400 to +500mV, Wheat-Grass Juice has an negative O.R.P. (antioxidant) of -120mV. Which is good. Real fresh squeezed Orange Juice has a negative O.R.P. of -250mV. Which is better. The LIFE 7600 Ionizers TM can get over -800mV. in one glass. This is as close as we can ever hope to get to a Fountain of Youth. In addition, irrespective what Machine you buy, the alkaline water is going to help you feel better. Check it out for yourself and you make the call. Do You Want To Feel Good for a Change?
