Why Drink High Antioxidant, Super Hydrating, Ionized Alkaline Water?Ionization alters water in two significant and measurable ways: ORP (oxidation reduction potential) and pH. Thesealterations to water are what make it very different from other waters you may drink. Research states that the ideallevel for drinking alkaline water is between pH 8 and pH 9.5 with a Negative ORP, which causes the microclustering,antioxidant and oxygenating effects.The Hunza people are uniquely healthy and free of disease, having the longest lifespan in the world and routinelyliving to over 100 years of age in good health, with virtually no cancer, degenerative disease, dental caries or bonedecay. The Hunzas remain robust and strong, and are able to bear children even in old age. Many studies havebeen done and it is believed that their simple healthy diet of carefully grown organic food and the glacial, free radicalscavenging water is their secret to health and long life.Hunza water is an example of perfect natural water. Research has found that this water has a high alkaline pH, aNegative ORP, and a high colloidal mineral content. Similar longevity is found in other remote unpolluted placessuch as the Shin-Chan areas of China, the Caucasus in Azerbaijan, and Vilcabamba in the Andes Mountains ofEcuador. The major common denominator of these healthy, long living people is their local water which exhibits verysimilar properties.Japanese scientists investigated Russian electrolysis technology and found that electricity could be used torestructure the water, giving it properties similar to Hunza water. This functional water technology was firstdeveloped in Japan in the early 1950s with experiments conducted on plants and animals; experiments with thehuman body followed, conducted by Japanese doctors.The first ionizers were large units used in hospitals. Following efforts by Japanese medical doctors, the water ionizerwas approved for medical therapeutics by the Japanese Ministry of Health and Rehabilitation in January of 1966.Later, water ionizers were also approved as medical devices by the government of South Korea. Some 30 millionpeople in Japan have used a water ionizer over the last 40 years.Ray Kurzweil Ph.D. Scientist, well renowned author & inventor “There are more benefits to alkaline water thansimply the alkalinity or pH. The most important feature of alkaline water produced by a water ionizer is its OxidationReduction Potential (ORP). Water with a high Negative ORP is of particular value in its ability to neutralize oxygenfree radicals. The negative ions in alkaline water from an electrolysis machine are a rich source of electrons that canbe donated to these free radicals in the body, neutralizing them and stopping them from damaging healthy tissues.This is the key benefit of the alkaline water produced by a water ionizer that is not available by simply drinking waterthat has had some bicarb or other compounds dissolved in it to make it alkaline.Another benefit of drinking ionized alkaline water is that it assists in the absorption of minerals. We know that if thebody is not absorbing enough minerals, it will rob minerals from the bodys mineral reserves, chiefly calcium fromthe bones. By drinking high Negative ORP alkaline water, you combat metabolic acidosis and improve absorption ofnutrients. Drinking ionized alkaline water helps reduce the burden on the limited alkaline buffers which are neededfor the bodys natural detoxification processes.”Stefan Kuprowsky N.D. “The most amazing property of ionized alkaline water is its antioxidant properties. Thismeans that the alkaline water itself has the ability to neutralize free radicals. This is because alkaline ionized watercontains hydroxyl ions with an overabundance of electrons which can be easily donated to neutralize free radicals.This is like taking antioxidant vitamins and minerals in the water you drink. One glass of ionized alkaline water hasthe same antioxidant activity as one glass of fresh juice. This is a powerful benefit of alkaline ionized water andworth the unit cost because of this one feature alone.Alkaline ionized water is up to six times more hydrating than regular water. The smaller clusters are able toscavenge free radicals with greater ease, increasing the antioxidant properties. Ionized alkaline water also improvesthe detoxification qualities of water because of its improved hydration of body tissues.”Ben Johnson M.D., Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.), Naturopathic Medical Doctor (N.M.D.) “As an alternativemedical doctor and especially treating cancer, the most important psychological issue was emotions, but the mostimportant physical issue was pH. In 1931, Otto Warberg received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering that alow oxygen environment in the tissues was the cause of cancer. The cause for a low oxygen level in tissue is acidpH. When I learned about alkaline water, I became very excited. We are now able to inundate a persons body on avery basic level.
Since a body is made up of almost 70 percent water, changing the alkalinity of that water would be a hugeaccomplishment. Alkaline antioxidant water changes everything physiologically. It allows the enzyme systems towork the way they should. The alkalinity allows oxygen to get to the tissues. More importantly, it provides readyantioxidants to keep our bodies from rotting and rusting through the process of oxidation. The question is oftenasked: ‘Who should be drinking the alkaline antioxidant water?’ The answer is simply, everyone from children tooctogenarians.”Robert O. Young Ph.D., N.D. “When the fish is sick, change the water. We don’t feed the fish medicine. We givethem clean water. When the cells of our body are sick, we must change the water and fluids in which all cells andtissues are bathed.High pH water, such as the water that comes from a good ionizer, neutralizes acids throughout the entire body.Since acids underlie all disease entities, nothing makes more sense than neutralizing these acids. I cant think ofany investment that is better for a person or a family than a good water ionizer.”Fereydoon Batmanghelidj M.D. researcher & advocate of the simple and the natural in medicine “Chronicunintentional cellular dehydration painfully and prematurely kills. Its initial outward manifestations have until nowbeen labeled as diseases of unknown origin. You are not sick, you are thirsty!”Hidemitsu Hayashi M.D. Heart Surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japan Dr. Hayashi believes that ionizedwater is our best source of antioxidants. “There is no substitute for a healthy balanced diet, especially rich inantioxidant materials such as vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and other foods that are good for us. However,these substances are not the best source of free electrons that can block the oxidation of healthy tissue by activeoxygen. Water treated by electrolysis to increase its reduction potential is the best solution to the problem ofproviding a safe source of free electrons to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals. We believethat reduced water, with an excess of free electrons to donate to active oxygen, is the best solution because thereduction potential of water can be dramatically increased over other antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements,and the molecule weight of reduced water is low.”Theodore Baroody D.C., N.D., Ph.D., Dipl. Acu. Author of the book Alkalize or Die "I have administered over5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water canbenefit everyone. The countless names attached to illness do not really matter. What does matter is that they allcome from the same root cause: too much tissue acid waste in the body."David S. Dyer N.M.D., Ph.D. “Even with good health, I don’t want to challenge my immune system every time I goto the tap for a drink of water. A recent research project using specially bred mice that have a weakened immunesystem had some astonishing results. One group of mice was given plain tap water resulting in an average life spanof 235 days. A second group given restructured alkaline water had an average life span of 346 days. Therestructured alkaline water significantly increased the second group’s life span and strengthened their immunesystem.All water does not help hydrate the body efficiently. Take distilled water for example. This water is dead and devoidof all minerals. It is very acidic and will tend to dehydrate you. All distilled water I have checked is about a 4.5 pH,that means this water is 1000 times more acidic than your blood, which is a 7.35 pH. Distilled water must beneutralized and where do you think your body gets the calcium to accomplish this? I’ll leave that deduction up toyou. Reverse Osmosis water has many of the same problems. R/O water averages around a 5 pH, 100 times moreacidic than your blood.What most people don’t know is that if your (tissue) pH drops below 5.8 you cannot absorb vitamins A, B, E, F andK. Nor can you absorb valuable minerals like sulphur, potassium, calcium, vanadium, chromium, iron or zinc, nomatter how much of these minerals you take. The majority of people we check have a urine pH below 5.8 and don’trealize that they are wasting their money on supplements. Restructured alkaline water is the fastest and mostefficient way to alkalize your body.The ph level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not welltolerated.... indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. The mostpowerful program to reduce or eliminate these effects is to remove acid from the blood and tissues with an alkalinelifestyle and wise dietary and water consumption choices. If someone were to ask me, ‘What is the one thing I cando to have better health?’ The answer would be very simple, start drinking alkalized and ionized water!"
