In the internet world of many claims and who knows who to believe, it’s nice to get some statistics you can bite your teeth into. These laboratory tests are undeniable, although I would run the water through the machines a bit slower.
This video shows Dr. Anthony Francis, PHD, and his assistants working for Silver State Analytical Laboratories in Las Vegas, Nevada testing seven top-name alkaline water ionizers. All of their reports are certified and have fulfilled rigorous standards for scientific testing. This is a really well done video.
Here are Dr Francis’s results as seen in the video:

*rH is “relative Hydrogen”. Many now believe that actual "hydrogen" (or relative hydrogen) is the most important factor in ionized water (contributing to good health). Note: If you don't have a hydrogen meter (which is expensive) then the best way to find the hydrogen levels (relative hydrogen or rH) is to use the pH and ORP measurements and plug those numbers into a formula. The formula is: rH = ((ORP + 200) / 30) + (2 * pH). On a scale from 0 to 42 above 28 oxidizing (higher potential to damage the closer it gets to 40) and below 28 is reducing (anti-oxidizing)…the lower the better. Or, a super simple and quick way to compare relative hydrogen levels between water ionizers is to take two samples that are the same pH and the one that has higher (more negative) ORP-levels is the one with more hydrogen in it.
ORP: ORP stands for oxidation reduction potential, which is another way of saying the ability to fight free-radical "oxidation".
