About Alkaline Water
The term Alkaline Water is just a label used to describe ideal drinking water as provided by nature. Alkaline water has more excess oxygen and alkaline minerals than neutral or acid tap water. It is highly oxygenated water with the oxygen in the stable bias OH- form that is needed by our cells. Each of these ions is bonded with an alkaline mineral in the all important colloidal form.
At pH between 8-10, ionized alkaline water will have 100’s of times more excess oxygen than neutral tap water and no acid elements or toxic substances in it.
How is Alkaline Water produced?
- With a Water Ionizer
- By passing water through selected Bio-Ceramic and Bio-stone filters
- By passing water through magnetic fields – this can only reduce the water clusters to make microwater.
- By adding alkaline mineral drops to ordinary water – this does not effect the cluster sizes or ORP of tap water.
Japanese scientists by accident discovered a method that puts back into water the missing ingredients that nature provides to the best natural water like the famed Himalayan glacier water of the Hunzas.
Alkaline water has the following properties, as found in glacier water, that are not present in ordinary tap or filtered water:
Alkaline pH – pH 7.0 – 9.5
Micro-clusters – low NMR
Active Hydrogen – low ORP
Ionized alkaline and acid waters are used in hospitals and clinics throughout Japan and South Korea, where the water ionizer is classified as a medical device.
Ionized water is considered to be one of the most effective and easy ways for your body to:
What is pH Balance?
Our blood pH should ideally by 7.365. At this slightly alkaline pH level our bodies function optimally. Like gravity, we are continuously pushed towards acidity from the food we eat. Even if we consume perfect food, the digestion process will always create organic acid wastes which we will need to remove.
Long term acidity is like rust; it corrodes our tissues, veins and arteries. It interrupts all cellular activity from the beating of the heart to the way we think.
Slightly alkaline blood pH ensures that micro-organisms remain in harmony with the body. When the pH becomes acidic there is a lack of oxygen which causes a proliferation of antagonistic, anaerobic microforms to appear. The acidic body becomes a breeding ground for germs, fungus and viruses. They consume the food we eat and leave us more acid waste excrements! Acidity coagulates blood and clogs up the capillaries.
Over-acidity interferes with life itself, leading to virtually all sickness and disease including heart attacks, cancer, premature aging and obesity.
What Are Experts that Drink Ionized Water Saying?
Ionized Water has been written about and highly recommended in several top health books by independent, eminent authors that drink it. These include: Dr Ray Kurzweil and Dr Terry Grossman, who in their groundbreaking book “Fantastic Voyage: Live Long Enough to Live Forever” state that:
“Consuming the right type of water is vital to detoxifying the body’s acidic waste products and is one of the most powerful health treatments available”.
“We recommened that you drink 8-10 glasses per day of this alkaline water. It is one of the simplest and most powerful things that you can do to combat a wide range of disease processes. It is interesting to note that in Japan , professional sports teams drink alkaline water to improve their performance”
Anti-Oxidant Effects of Ionized Water
“What I am telling the world is to drink alkaline water in order to wash out acidic wastes, the universal cause of many adult diseases…. The important thing to remember is that we age because we accumulate acidic waste products. Therefore, if we get rid of these wastes, we can reverse the aging process. We can even eliminate the symptoms of adult diseases by these processes if no irreversible damage is done all ready. “
Water is the number one nutrient. It is essential for life.
We are over 70% water, and water is required for virtually every cellular function. Studies show that 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated and virtually everyone in the U.S. has one or more toxic chemicals lodged in fatty tissue as a result of ingestion of tap water; 53 million Americans drink water containing potentially dangerous levels of chloro- and fluoro-chemicals, lead, fecal bacteria, as well as pesticides and other impurities associated with cancer and metabolic dysfunction.
In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.
One glass of water deters hunger pangs for 98% of the dieters observed in a University of Washington study.
The biggest trigger of daytime fatigue is lack of water.
Research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, breast cancer by 79%, and bladder cancer by 50%.
