Water Ionizers Both Clean and Ionize Your Drinking Water for Better Health
Ionizers transform ordinary tap water into the healthiest drinking water available. Using advanced water ionization technology, Ionizers create great-tasting alkaline drinking water with an abundance of negative ions that neutralize active oxygen (free radicals). The ionization process also breaks regular water molecules into easily absorbed micro-clusters, resulting in better hydration.
First developed in Japan in the 1950s, water ionizers use an electrical charge to split water into alkaline water (with a pH above 7.0) and acidic water (with a pH below 7.0). The higher the pH of the drinking water, the more effective it is at combating the damaging effects of acids in the body.
Ionized and Energized water is alkaline and is the healthiest water available, addressing many health issues. Ionizers make the most of one of our most important & abundant natural resources on the planet - Water.
The majority of your body is comprised of about 70% water, and your brain is about 80% water. Most body functions are regulated by water, such as pH balance, waste removal systems and temperature. These systems are all heavily affected by the amount and quality of your water intake.
Water ionizers are different from filters because ionized water has undergone a scientific improving alteration, while a filter merely filters out harmful elements.
Ionizers can eliminate contaminants from flowing into your house, while ensuring that all valuable minerals are still passed through to you. The unit is small & easy to use, and the investment you make in will be repaid many times over in the benefits you receive by drinking this improved water.
Normal tap water is not beneficial to your health, in fact it can endanger your health. Ionized water provides many things that you would not get in your average tap water, such as superior hydration, alkalizing potential and antioxidant properties.
Superior Hydrating Quality
Ionized water has exceptional hydrating qualities, making nutrient delivery to your cells more efficient, and cellular detoxification more effective. Your digestive system benefits with higher water quality, leaving you healthier. And this can even help you lose weight, as the high intake of ionized water has been linked to the gradual decrease in fatty deposits in the body. Your waste removal system can also function better, allowing your body to get rid of more toxins, giving you more vitality.
Ionizers have been used doctors and the public for many years, supported by medical and scientific research that has produced these high quality machines classified as "medical substance providers" by the government of Korea.
Ionizers generate Ionized water with high antioxidant qualities. This creates an abundance of negative ions that neutralize free radicals, known to contribute to aging and disease, especially cancers. Negative ions also energize your body.
Water undergoes a scientific process to become alkalized, micro-clustered and ionized. This process occurs within the actual ionizers. The unit is attached to your water supply and will dispense ionized water. It's easy to install and the benefits provided are immeasurable.
The water enters the water ionizer chamber and undergoes the process of electrolysis or ionization. This process causes approximately 70% of the water flowing into the ionizer to become OH- , which is alkaline water. The other approximately 30% of the water is converted to OH+ , which is acidic water. The acidic water can be collected and utilized around the house and used on plants, while the alkaline water is for drinking and cooking.
Water ionizers run water (that has already been filtered to remove contaminants) over positive and negative electrodes in a process known as electrolysis. The electrodes ionize the water, negatively and positively, creating acidic and alkaline water at the same time. Acidic water is shunted into one chamber while alkaline water is shunted into another.
Water molecules typically cluster in groups of 11 to 16 molecules. Water ionizers break large water molecule clusters apart, creating smaller clusters of 5 to 6 molecules. Smaller clusters of water molecules are more easily absorbed at the cellular level, improving hydration and detoxification, as well as improving the delivery of nutrients at a cellular level.
Both Alkaline and Acidic Water Have Benefits
Alkaline water is ideal for drinking, cleaning vegetables, and cooking. Its antioxidant properties promote health. Acidic water is a natural cleanser. The astringent properties of acidic water in the 4.0 to 6.0 range are ideal for cleaning and toning your skin. Used as a rinse when washing your hair, acidic water helps the scalp, reduces tangles and gives hair a radiant shine. It also helps the hair and skin of pets. In higher concentrations, acidic water has strong disinfecting properties and can be used for cleaning around the house and for cleaning toothbrushes, hands, and even as a mouth wash.
The Benefits of Alkaline Water
Restores the pH balance in the body.
Alkaline water can neutralize the acidity of the body caused by stress, modern diet, air pollution, and many bottled waters.
A higher pH in the body reduces the need for fat and cholesterol to protect the body from damaging acids.
Alkaline water is negatively charged and an "antioxidant." Antioxidants reduce cellular and DNA damage caused by free radicals.
Negatively charged alkaline water creates energy by giving up ions to positive ions.
Alkaline water tastes lighter with a pleasantly sweet flavor.
Using water with a higher pH level improves the taste of beverages and food.
Cooking with alkaline water improves the taste and quality of foods and using acidic
water when boiling eggs improves their quality.
Provides superior hydration and nutrition at the cellular level.
Ionization breaks clusters of water molecules into smaller micro-clusters, reducing the size of the clusters from the 11-16 molecules in standard water to just 5-6 molecules in ionized water. Smaller clusters pass through cell walls more easily and hydrate the cells more quickly.
Faster hydration allows the body to regulate its temperature more efficiently.
Micro-clusters of mineral-bearing ionized water also deliver nutrients more efficiently to the cells.
Detoxifies cells more efficiently than standard drinking water.
Due to their smaller size, micro-clusters of ionized water molecules are expelled from the cells more efficiently, carrying damaging toxins out of the cells and flushing them out of the system.
The negative charge of ionized alkaline water will attract the positive ions of acids and neutralize them within the body.
