What are the benefits of consuming alkaline water
- Ionization raises the pH of tap water from around 7 to 10 and increases the anti-oxidants in the water. Ionized water acts as solvent on acidic waste stored in the body and dissolves it to be removed by the blood.
- Ionization cuts the size of the water molecular cluster in half. This smaller cluster can penetrate the cellular membranes of the body easier, thus speeding new tissue building and waste removal.
-Ionization splits the water molecule into H+ and OH- ions. By drinking the water with the alkaline, oxygen rich OH- ions more oxygen is made available to enrich the blood whcih can increase one's level of energy and promote quicker healing.
-The ionized OH- molecules have extra electrons that neutralize destructive free radicals circulating throughout the body and thus allow the natural healing processes of the body to predominate and promote health. These four benefits make ionized water a superior anti-oxidant., that promotes health as well as anti-aging.
Can bacteria survive in ionized alkaline water?
During electrolysis, all bacteria will be killed. This process in itself makes it impossible for bacteria to survive in ionized alkaline water.
Will the quality of ionized alkaline water deteriorate when boiled?
In this case, the oxygen content in the water and its alkaline properties may be reduced but not its mineral content. When compared with other purified water, ionized alkaline water will still be a rich souce of mineral that is healthy for consumption.
Is ionized alkaline water recommended for children?
Yes. It is recommended that for the first 7 days they consume alkaline water at level 1. After that it can be increased to level 2. The rich calcium content in ionized alkaline water is exellent for children growth.
Is any water with high pH good?
The higher the pH the more OH- ions in the water. However, it is dangerous to conclude that any water with a high pH is good. I can add potassium cyanide into water to raise the pH, but that water would obviously be fatal. High pH water, obtained from 'drinkable' water by filtering out pollutants and removing acid minerals and enhancing alkaline minerals that were in the original water, is good. Not just any high pH water.
Could any harm be done by drinking too much alkaline water with a pH as high as 10
The answer is no. It takes 32 glasses of this alkaline water to neutralize the acidic effect of a glass of well-known brand cola with a pH of 2.5. Alkaline water with a pH of 11.5 will neutralize this cola drink on a one to one basis.
Can the ionizer produce alkaline water without creating acid water?
No, unless the original water was acid free to begin with. In that case the pH of the alkaline water will be about 0.3 higher than the original water pH and the acid side water pH will be near 7, a neutral value.
Can I buy alkaline water in the store?
Not yet. High pH alkaline water must be bottled in glass bottles. Plastic bottles allow carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to pass through and it forms carbonic acid, H2CO3, thus lowering the water pH. Because the alkaline water is saturated with calcium ions, the carbonic acid can form calcium carbonate, CaCO3, and precipitate to the bottom of the water bottle
