1. What is alkaline ionized water?
Our machines produce two streams of water, both having uses and benefits. The main stream of drinking water has high pH, meaning it is alkaline, as opposed to low pH which is acidic (used for cleaning, disinfecting, beautifying, and watering plants). Soft drinks, energy drinks, alcoholic beverages, and even bottled water are low in pH or acidic. A precondition for most diseases is an acidic environment. By eating the right foods and drinking alkaline water, the body’s pH can balanced to bring healing, energy, and beautification.
ORP stands for oxidative reduction potential, a measure of antioxidant levels. Water ionizing machines use a process of electrolysis which splits ordinary tap water into alkaline and acidic streams. Ionizing means creating negatively charged mineral ions that turn the water alkaline (creating positively charged ions creates the acidic stream). It is these antioxidants and ionized minerals found in this alkaline water that are such powerful aids in healing, raising energy levels, and slowing aging. Negatively charged ions attract the positively charged ions of harmful acids, free radicals, and toxins, which is why the effects of this water can be felt so quickly and dramatically.

2. The health benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water
As a result of metabolism, the body is constantly creating acidic wastes. However, stress and the poor quality of our modern diets has lead to extreme levels of acidity, thereby overburdening the body’s ability to eliminate these acids through the urine and sweat. This lays the groundwork for disease, chronic pain, lack of energy, brain fog, and premature aging.
The ionization process breaks down water molecules into micro-clusters, allowing it to pass through the cell walls more easily for a superior hydrating effect at a cellular level. This micro-clustered water, because it can hydrate so much quicker, delivers nutrients to the cells as well as eliminates waste more efficiently, aiding in not only the detoxification of the body but greater energy levels as well. Among several other benefits including proper hydration, detoxification, and balance in your body’s pH levels, drinking alkaline water can ultimately contribute to weight loss and anti-aging.
Our water ionizers create micro-clustered water that passes through cell walls more easily, making both hydration and detoxification dramatically more efficient. For this reason, many of our testimonials come from athletes who need to perform at their highest capacity, needing to hydrate and eliminate metabolic wastes as efficiently and effectively as possible. Furthermore, the high antioxidant levels give quickly noticeable boosts of energy and shortens recovery time dramatically as well.
Signs of dehydration are fatigue, dry skin, chapped lips, parched mouth, constipation, and headaches. By the time you feel thirsty, you are already long dehydrated.
Most water these days that are sold are acidic, due to the fact that they are filtered. For example, Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems while taking out dangerous contaminants, unfortunately, also filter out the necessary minerals. This leaves the water acidic, as it absorbs Carbon Dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere.
3. The problems with bottled water and tap water
Through marketing, bottled water companies market their filtered tap water as clean and safe “mountain spring water”. However, investigations into the bottled water industry has demonstrated otherwise. A big part of the problem is that they have only voluntary self regulation, and so their products essentially go untested. Independent tests have revealed a wide range of scandals widely reported in the press. Furthermore, filtered water, while filtering out contaminants and toxins, also strip the water of its natural minerals, causing the water to absorb CO2 from the air and creating carbonic acid, rendering most filtered water and bottled water acidic, potentially harming your health.
There is also an environmental cost, as the amount of plastic trash is rising, in addition to the growing concern of the bottled water industry’s strain on our fresh water systems.
4. Uses for acidic ionized water
Not only is drinking alkaline water beneficial for healing, rejuvenating, and energizing, but there are other uses for the (acidic) water produced by our machines as well.
The acidic water can be used to clean pores, as an astringent to keep them tight, and as a hair softener and detangler.
The acidic water is also an effective disinfectant for cuts, or for cleaning the kitchen, cutting boards, and even medical equipment in doctors’/dentists’ offices.
The acidic water is effective for watering plants, especially ones that may have some sort of disease or infestation.
Another use for acidic water is as a completely toxin-free flea bath for pets.
5. How alkaline water ionizers work
Water ionizers use an electrical charge to split water into alkaline (pH above 7.0) and acidic (pH below 7.0) streams. The water comes straight from your kitchen faucet, and is passed over multiple titanium and platinum plates, that split the streams into negatively charged (antioxidant rich) alkaline water, and positively charged (disinfecting) acidic streams. Both streams of water have numerous uses and benefits to the body’s, and for external use: cleaning hair, skin, and any surfaces that need disinfecting. This technology was first developed in Japan in the 1950′s and has been used extensively in hospitals and clinics in Japan and Korea continuously since that time, bringing healing and vitality to millions.
Our water is made alkaline by passing ordinary tap water over high quality titanium/platinum plates that ionized the minerals, creating alkaline water packed with negatively charged ions (that are natural antioxidants). Alkaline water has a pH above 7.0 and helps balance the pH of your body, taking away the preconditions for most diseases, is packed with antioxidants to help flush out the body of toxins, and aids in efficient hydration and detoxification of cells.
Water is ionized when the minerals take on a positive or negative electrical charge. This happens naturally in nature, and all water is to some extent ionized. Our machines ensure that you are getting healthy alkaline, ionized water that will energize, heal, and beautify. The acidic ionized water is an effective disinfectant, and great for washing hair, skin, and any surfaces.
