How do portable water ionizer pitchers work?
Portable water ionizers use a technology developed over a 10-year period by Dr. Hayashi and others working in the water ionizer industry. The technology uses magnesium and magnetized ceramics in such a combination that excites the water to ionize spontaneously without electricity. There are several products that have sprung up using this technology, and I have tested just about all of them. Some don't work at all [or very poorly], but some of these portable water ionizers will lightly ionize and give you a slight raise in pH and about -100 ORP [which is a fair amount of antioxidants for a portable device, but not anything close to what an electric water ionizer can do]. The Alkaline Plus Water Filter Pitcher by WellBlue is the best portable water ionizer pitcher that I've ever tested. It will bring the water [even reverse osmosis water] up to 9.5 pH and the antioxidant levels to an exceptional -100 to -400, depending on how much water you ionize at one time, whether or not you give the filter a break between filtrations and how close to filter expiration you are getting.
Instructions for the Alkaline Plus Portable Water Ionizer Pitcher by WellBlue:
Because the Alkaline Plus Water Ionizer Filter Pitcher by WellBlue requires the ability to add alkalizing minerals to the water in order to work, it needs a break between filtrations. It also may work differently according to what your source water is. For instance if your source is reverse osmosis, then the minerals in the filter will surely deplete faster than if you use regular tap water. After lots of experimentation, here is what I've found:
workable alternative to expensive ionizersThe pitcher works. I use city water with a pH of @ 7 and lots of chlorine. Afer putting it through the pitcher, I pH tested the water at @ 8.5 and no chlorine. It's great for traveling too.
Already my health is so much better from this water!!!One week and already my health is so much better from this water!!!
WellBlue Portable Water Ionizer Pitcher Is a Lifesaver!August 2014 will make three months since I've been using the WellBlue Portable Water Ionizer Pitcher. My NYC tap water is acidic at pH 5 and once processed through this pitcher the pH becomes 10. The water tastes fantastic! If you follow the directions to remove the filter and keep it in a plastic baggie when not in use, the filter lasts significantly longer. I've turned several friends onto it and they've purchased WellBlue and LOVE it. I use it for my water-based smoothies and cook everything using it, including boiled eggs just in case the eggs crack while boiling. I even use the alkaline water for my ice cube tray! Obsessed much? Why, yes I am, and happily so! I will continue to recommend the WellBlue Portable to others and plan to buy one to keep in the office so I can stop traveling with the two 24-ounce thermos bottles I also purchased with the pitcher. This is one of the best purchases for my health I've ever made.
