Health Benefits of Alkaline Ionized Water
I have the advantage of having 20 years of experience drinking alkaline ionized water. I've seen how it helped me raise my children without allergies and free of typical childhood illnesses. The first water ionizer I used was a far less effective water ionizer than the ones I sell today, but even so I had many alkaline ionized water benefits! I thought it was the best product I ever purchased for my family's health. I have the hindsight to know what a bargain that first water ionizer was, even though I paid a whopping $1,100 for it [back in the mid-90's].
Today you have an even better opportunity to purchase the best water ionizer ever for your family's health, because the water ionizers are not only better today but they are relatively less expensive.
Water is the most important nutrient to all life.When you consider that your body is mostly water, it opens the door to you realizing how important water is to your health. Water is the singular best medium to bring the right nutrients to your cells.
I can't think of a better investment than to invest in the very basis of all health, water. The percentage of water in your body is somewhere between 60% and 75%. Children and very healthy adults are usually closer to 75%, and it is a quite well researched fact that dehydration [too low a percent of water in a body] is associated with dozens of illnesses.

For Best Water - Don't Buy Bottled Water.
Many people are unaware of how easy, safe and superior it is to filter their own drinking water. Buying bottled water is not only inferior to filtering your own water, but it's actually a lot less safe in the long run. The healthiest drinking water is the water you filter yourself, fresh and ready to drink. Read more: Analyzing and Comparing Bottled Water
Also, beware of reverse osmosis water. Reverse osmosis is extreme filtration, which removes healthy minerals from the water. This much filtration can be dangerous, because the water is then so void of minerals that it will leach minerals from your body [bones, joints, muscles, tissues and organs] as it makes its way around your body.
Alkaline Water Ionizer Machines
A water ionizer creates natural, clean, fresh alkaline water which can then provide us with the pH buffers and the hydration that we need. [A buffer is something which helps to neutralize something.] PH buffers can neutralize the acidic elements that are attacking and damaging your cells, and therefore they can extend the life of your cells.
What is a Water Ionizer and What are its Benefits?
This video offers a simple explanation of a water ionizer and the benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water.
Summary of Video: Here's a Recap of the Benefits of Drinking Alkaline Water [What Alkaline Water Ionizers Do]
Alkaline water machines, water ionizers, help you to achieve the perfect body pH-balance in and around your cells.Our bodies need to be alkaline to be healthy, however our typical American diets are way too acidic [meats, grains, dairy, soft drinks, tea/coffee...are all acidic]. Acids have a way of getting trapped in our bodies. They settle into fat cells or joints mostly, and they also solidify into uric acid crystals. They do this to protect us from the alternative: death.
Our cells must be constantly bathed in slightly alkaline pH water in order to be hydrated and cleansed [draw the acids out of the cells].
When acidic wastes get stuck in our cells, it inhibits cell functions.
The inability to rid ourselves of acidic wastes leads to most of America's common illnesses [colds, allergies, diabetes, obesity, acne, indigestion, headaches, and cancer]. To prevent this entrapment of acidic wastes our cells must be constantly bathed in slightly alkaline pH water.
Our drinking water should provide us with the pH buffers and the hydration that we need.
A buffer is something which helps to neutralize something. PH buffers can neutralize the acidic elements that are attacking and damaging your cells, therefore they can extend the life of your cells.
What is ORP?
ORP stands for "oxidation reduction potential", which is another way of saying anti-oxidant. You are probably familiar with the term anti-oxidant because vitamin C and E are anti-oxidants.
Oxidation is a chemical reaction. Oxygen [O2] circulates the body, stealing electrons & damaging the cells. A free radical is an unbalanced oxygen molecule with an unpaired electron. It needs another electron to be stable and steals it from your cells. Ionized water produces a Negative ORP...which is really good. With a Negative ORP you get lots of extra negatively charged electrons to combine with the free radicals formed by oxidation. This makes them stable again and non-threatening to your cell health. There are no better, more easily absorbable antioxidants that a person could consume than those found in the OH- ions in alkaline ionized water.
Microclustered Water With Alkaline Water Ionizers
By creating micro-clusters, a water ionizer creates water that is more easily able to pass through pores, tissues and cell membranes. Therefore alkaline ionized water will hydrate the body and cells better and faster.
Superior Filtration [the best water filters] With Alkaline Water Ionizers
Among the benefits of ionized water is the filtration benefit that most people [even water ionizer owners] don't think about. Most people use a water ionizer to drink alkaline water, which will assist them in removing toxins from their bodies. The excellent filtration available with many water ionizers will help to lessen the amount of toxins going into their bodies in the first place.
A slow-flow of water through a water ionizer [about 1.5 - 2 liters/min.] will help to get Chloramine out you need to run your water through the activated carbon filter slowly. Don't run the water through the ionizer too quickly, if you want best filtration [i.e., to remove the Chloramine, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, or any of the many contaminants very effectively]. Alkaline water ionizers will usually force you to slow down your speed of pouring water just enough to utilize your water filtration to the maximum effectiveness.
Alkaline Ionized Water Testimonials
These are some great testimonials of the fantastic results of using Alkaline Ionized Water! [3:19 minutes] This video is one of many that show hundreds and thousands of people talking about the health benefits of alkaline water.
PH Miracle for Weight Loss
This lady was able to lose weight when she started to regularly drink alkaline water. Obesity is associated with too many acidic toxins in the body. The fat traps the toxins so they don't poison you. Raising your body's pH will help your fat cells release the acidic fats so they can be properly flushed out of your body.
Water Ionizers Help the Stomach and Colon:
Among the benefits of ionized water are improved conditions in the GI tract [including better elimination, digestion, energy, and overall health]. One thing about weight or health problems that many people don't realize is the importance of the pH balance in the gastrointestinal tract and the body in general. Most people do not know that it's not stomach acids that digest your food. It's enzymes. Also, water has no calories, and so it doesn't trigger digestion or reduce the stomach acids at all. It just goes straight through for the most part. So anyone saying that to drink alkaline ionized water is bad for the stomach doesn't know what they're talking about. Of course if you are in the process of eating meat or dairy I don't suggest it, because it could interfere then. But 20 minutes before and after eating to drink alkaline water is not a problem. You also should drink at a reasonable pH-level, such as 9.5 or 10, although I have talked to many cancer patients who report better, faster results when they drink higher pH-levels.
High body acidity is caused by the foods we eat and drink, exercise, tension & stress, to name a few. Ideally our diet should be 60-80% alkaline, but in reality it’s usually just the opposite -- about 60-80% acidic! Animal proteins, grains, dairy products, soft drinks...are all acidic and are potentially going to be stored in the body as acids. [It's not so much that the food itself is acid, although it often is, but it is that the resultant byproduct of digestion of that food is acidic.] Too much acidity in the body is dangerous. Diseases are often by-products of an acidic body environment, so when you "cure" them without changing your daily routine that got you there you take the risk of getting whatever it was back. So, huge benefits of drinking alkaline water lie in the area of giving you the BUFFERS you need to handle whatever comes along.
Water Ionizers: Introductory Videos
Part 1 - Ionized Water Helps the Cells Get Rid of Wastes: In this section they explain how the processes of cells give off wastes, which are acidic. To enable proper cell functions, the cells need to be cleaned of these wastes. Without a proper supply of alkaline (as in alkaline water) the blood will rob the joints and bones of minerals. This “robbing” is a lousy solution, but without sufficient alkaline source, high acidic levels could cause death.
Part 2 - How a Water Ionizer is Really Inexpensive: This section explains how the water ionization process is also the least expensive way to get healthy water into your body. Water ionizers are a great bargain! Reducing our doctor bills alone has way more than covered our costs over the years! In our many years of experience, we have found that there just is not a better, healthier, more cost effective thing you could do than to buy a water ionizer.
The many reasons why you should avoid buying/drinking bottled water are discussed. So many people are purchasing bottled water these days. For the sake of your health, budget and the planet, you should consider switching to taking ionized alkaline bottled water wherever you go! Owning an alkaline water machine is quite cost effective for sure when you compare it to bottled water [which adds up to a far higher cost and not healthy at all].
Part 3 - Antioxidants: In this section Tom and Cathleen explain how the alkaline ionization process also creates an antioxidant effect on the water [ORP, or oxidation reduction potential]. They explain how the water ionization experts even feel this is a more important benefit than the alkalinity. This gives even more compelling reasons to avoid drinking bottled water and how much better ionized water is.
