Alkaline Water FAQ

Alkaline water

Most bottled water is either pure, distilled water or mineral / spring water. To prevent bacterial growth and promote sanitary packaging, some manufacturers use chlorine dioxide (ClO2) in bottles as a sterilant. This gives the water slightly a acidic pH value. As discussed above, regular consumption of alkaline water promotes better, long-term health.

The hardness of water depends on the density of calcium and magnesium salts contained in it. Water is considered hard if the amount of minerals is over 150mg per liter of water. Slightly harder water contains natural calcium and magnesium. The activated calcium and magnesium in ionized water has been shown to be are beneficial to general health. In the right amounts of these ions give the cells of our blood vessels special protection.

We do not generally recommend the use of unprocessed ground water with an ionizer drinking water system. Ground water is not tested nor treated by city or municipal water works. Heavy metal or chemical impurity is often possible. We recommend ground water to be treated before it is suitable for water ionizers.

To get the full effect of Ionized Water, it should be consumed fresh right out of the ionizer. We recommend use within 18 hours of electrolysis. Water directly from the ionizer is loaded with hydroxyl ions will have thousands of tiny bubbles in it. These ions (shown by -ORP) provide the antioxidant benefits from drinking ionized water.

Ionized water has several household uses. Alkaline water can be used for drinking, cooking, washing food (removes oil and dirt) and cleaning. Acidic water can be used for washing food (removes chemicals), washing, bathing, and as an antiseptic.

Reduced Water: Alkaline

Drinking –
Alkaline water is more effective to human body because it is more easily absorbed by the body. It helps combat fatigue and helps recovery from illness or exertion. Drinking a glass of water before bed improves sleep.

Cooking –
Alkaline water allows rice and other grains to absorb water more easily.Food cooks faster because of the smaller water molecules in alkaline ionized water. Alkaline water also enhances natural taste.

Mixing Beverages – Tea, Coffee and others –
Alkaline water adds flavor and brings out the best in beverages. Beverages taste smoother and don’t have an acidic taste.

Washing Vegetables –
Alkaline water helps you get the maximum taste and flavor from raw vegetables. It removes some of the bitter tastes that some acidic vegetables have.

Oxidized Water: Acidic Water

Skin care –

Acidic water is very effective astringent that for skin and hair. External use can bring back the smoothness to skin and shine to hair.

Flowers – Stay fresh longer when soaked placed in diluted acidic water (1:2).

Disinfecting and sterilizing –
Acidic water kills many types of bacteria. Use it for brushing teeth to remove plaque and fighting gum disease and sore throat. It also helps remove some external fungus and relieves itching.

Cleaning – Acidic water sterilizes work surfaces, cups and dishes.Treat athlete’s foot, minor burns, insect bites, scratches, etc.

Healing – Hyperoxidized water has proven effective in Japanese hospitals in the treatment of bedsores and operative wounds with complicated infections.

A home water ionizer filters and conditions water using electrolysis. When in use, the system produces ionized or electrically charged water that has different chemical properties than the original tap water. Taking filtered tap water in, the system outputs both alkaline or reduced water (water with concentrated OH- ions); and acidic or oxidized water (water with concentrated H ions) through separate exhaust ports. The water produced provides many health benefits for animals and human when consumed and that has many other beneficial household uses. A home water ionizer also protects your health by also filtering your drinking water. It ensures that the water you drink and cook with is properly conditioned, clean and healthy.

Scientific, peer-reviewed literature usually refers to ionized water as “electrolyte reduced water”, or ERW. Scientific research and literature has shown that ERW exhibits strong health-enhancing benefits. Most importantly, it has an antioxidant effect. This is due to the presence negative hydrogen ions.

H-ions are present in the water in a clustered form, wherein each negative hydrogen ion is surrounded by a cage (or cluster) of water molecules. The ionized water also shows a reduced cluster size and reduced surface tension. The reduced cluster size and reduced surface tension, which are created by the presence of the H-ion, are also believed to have beneficial health effects when the water is consumed.

The electrolysis treatment makes three important changes to the water chemistry.

  1. Electrolysis changes the ORP value of tap water from +500mv to -150~-800mv.

Alkaline water (reduced water) carries a negative ORP (-250 to -350 mV) which provides a powerful anti-oxidant benefit to regular user of alkaline water. It helps neutralize harmful free radicals found in acidic water that are associated with aging and health problems.

Ionised alkaline water keeps your body biological molecules undamaged that are less susceptible to infection and disease. Alkaline water helps excessive fermintation in the digestive tract resulting in a cleaner stool within days after this water is taken on a regular basis. In 1965, the Ministry of Welfare of Japan announced that reduced water obtained from electrolysis can prevent abnormal fermentation of intestinal microbes.

2. Electrolysis changes the pH value of the water

Human body maintains a blood pH level at around 7.35-7.45. Enzymes and other proteins function properly within this optimum pH range. Acidic foods in our diet like (meat, starch, sugar, alcohol & other processed food products) and other environmental factors may stress body imbalance the optimal pH value. The body uses many methods to maintain pH values at optimal range, it relies on high pH fluids such as:
water – that acts as solvents to neutralize acid residues.
Utilize electrolyte buffers like sodium, calcium and potassium to bind acids and finally removed through urine.

This forceful method by body to maintain pH may have negative effects in the long term. People trending acidic physique tend to have a weaker immune system and may experience a general physical deterioration, emotional tension, poor metabolism, weaker excretion system, and a propensity to constipation. Long sufferers are prone to illness such as hepatitis, cancer, palsy, hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, nervousness diseases and others.

Alkaline water helps balance the body chemistry and maintain optimal pH levels. Drinking alkaline water improves the body’s ability to buffer acids and flush acidic residues.
Regular use of Alkaline drinking water can help flush acidic residue from the body and help restore our optimal pH balance. Alkaline water also contains many beneficial mineral ions like calcium, magnesium, potassium and other beneficial trace minerals. These electrolytes carry a (-) charge that improves the absorption rate in the body.

3. Electrolysis temporarily alters the molecular structure of water

Promotes better Hydration The bonds between the water molecules are fragmented and the cluster size of the molecule becomes temporarily smaller. This smaller molecule cluster size allows for better absorption by the body. This promotes better hydration and quicker recovery from fatigue.

Other Benefits of Alkaline Water include:
Cleansing the liver – Alkaline water has been shown to increase levels of antioxidants that protect the liver and help it work more efficiently.

Lowering Cholesterol Levels – research has shown that drinking alkaline water can reduce your cholesterol level, while increasing the ratio of good (HDL) cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.

Weight Loss – Alkaline water can help the body rid itself of stored fatty acids. Drinking water naturally suppresses the appetite and helps the body metabolize fat.

IonTech water ionizer electrolyzes water with direct current voltage (DCV). Water is first filtered through activated charcoal. Next water passes through specially engineered electrolysis chamber equipped with platinum-coated charged titanium electrolysis plates. As the water flows, the water is ‘Ionized’ by the electrical charge from the titanium plates. The conditioned or ‘Ionized’ water then exits through two ports; (an alkaline port and an acidic port).

The (-) cathode attracts minerals such as sodium, magnesium, potassium, calcium and others and the water surrounding the terminal becomes alkaline with an increase in hydrogen ions (H+). The anti-cathode terminal attracts ions such as oxygen, sulfuric acid, sulfur and the water surrounding the terminal becomes acidic with an increase in hydroxide ions (OH-). The water discharged from the alkaline port has a higher pH value and contains minerals, like Calcium and Magnesium, that are in a form that is more suitable for the body to assimilate.

Calcium, Potassium, Magnesium and other minerals can normally be found in drinking water. But these minerals in are complex, inorganic and very stable. These are not easily assimilated by the body. However, minerals in ionized water are separated into ions with (-)ORP. These ions unite with the acidic residues with positive ions. They act as buffering agents that are easily assimilated and eliminated by our bodies.

pH (Potential Hydrogen)
The pH value of a liquid is measured on a scale of 0 to 14 with extreme acidity being 0 and extreme alkaline being 14. pH values represent the hydrogen ion (H+ and OH- ions) activity within the liquid and reflect the tendency of hydrogen ions. Pure (neutral) water contains equal concentrations of H+ and OH- ions and has a pH around 7 at 25 °C (77 °F). This pH value varies with temperature. When an acid is dissolved in water, the water will contain a higher concentration of H+ ions and the pH will decrease to less than 7 (if at 25 °C (77 °F)). When an alkaline is dissolved in water, the water will contain a higher concentration of OH- ions and the pH will increase to more than 7 (if at 25 °C (77 °F)).

ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox Potential)

ORP is a measure of the presence of oxidizing or reducing agents in a solution. During a reaction between components in a solution, there is a tendency to transfer electrons between the components. The component with a lower (more negative) ORP will have a tendency to lose an electron and is said to be “reduced”. The component with a higher (more positive) ORP will have a tendency to gain electrons and is said to be “oxidized”. ORP of solution is measured in millivolts (mV) with a specialized electrode meter. The more negative the OPR reading, the greater the substances’ tendency to give away electrons and be reduced; the more positive the ORP reading, the greater the substances’ tendency to pick up electrons and be oxidized. Ionized water units simultaneously produce water with two levels of ORP, one with a high reduction potential → alkaline water; and one with a high oxidization potential → acidic water.

Water purifier is usually a basic device for home use that filters chemicals and impurities. Purifiers are unable to change the pH values, ORP values or the structure of water molecules. A water ionizer uses electrolysis to alter water pH and ORP values and molecular cluster structures of the water. It regulates the water chemistry for the user as per their needs. The pH value of the output can be selected for different uses; drinking, cooking, washing, healing, beautification etc.
