Water ionizers can dramatically change the properties of ordinary tap water. Through the electrolysis process a concentration of alkaline and acidic water is formed. This process also conditions the water to have a small molecule size, making it more hydrating for the body.
Water ionizers work by concentrating the beneficial minerals in source water.
Through the electro-dialysis process antioxidants are formed. Because electro-dialysis is an electrically induced process, it leaves the water buzzing with extra electrons, which give the water a negative charge.
The negative charge of the water, is measured in ORP. Water ionizers generate water with a high negative ORP, because it concentrates water with spare electrons, or electron donors. These electron-donors have the ability to neutralize free-radicals, and remove them from your body.
In addition to the water ionization process (electro-dialsysis) many water ionizers, including the Junsui Machine include large carbon filters, which remove chlorine, organic and dissolved solids. You can also add advanced outside filtration such as our 5 stage filtration add-on.
To put it simply, water ionizers work by concentrating the “good minerals and molecules” and remove the bad ones – creating an antioxidant rich solution that also helps in restoring and maintaining the pH balance of your body!
You may have seen bottles of alkaline water at your local grocery store. The pH of the water in the bottles of alkaline water you get from the store typically range from 6.0 to 7.8 alkaline, which is safe for drinking.
Here are the main differences between Alkaline Ionized Water (from a water ionizer machine) and Bottled Alkaline Water you get from the store:
- Bottled alkaline water uses chemicals and pH Buffers. Bottled alkaline water is made alkaline with mineral or chemical pH buffers added to the water. Water Ionizers create alkaline drinking water naturally, and are chemical free.
- Bottled alkaline water has ZERO antioxidant value. Bottled alkaline water has a positive ORP. Water ionizers create alkaline drinking water with a high NEGATIVE -ORP.
ORP is the measure of oxygen reduction potential of a substance. In context, ORP is the measure of a fluids level of healthy antioxidants.
ORP and -ORP is measure of oxidation reduction potential in a liquid, such as soda, water, green tea and coffee. When a substance has a -ORP, it is through to neutralize free radicals, and up take rogue oxygen atoms that may damage healthy cells in the body.
You may have heard that green tea is high in antioxidants, which is true. On average a cup of green tea will have a -ORP of 120mV.
On the opposite side of the ORP scale is positive ORP. A positive ORP will cause excessive oxidation, and free radicals in the body. Most soda products (acidic) and carbonated beverages have a positive ORP.
Surprisingly, most bottled water actually contributes to oxidation, because it has a positive ORP.
Alkaline water can help the body manage insulin production (and therefore manage diabetes) in multiple ways. For starters, alkaline water is of a higher pH, meaning that it can help neutralize acidic conditions in the body because ionized alkaline water has smaller clusters of water molecules which are more easily used by cells to help hydrate and flush acidic toxins. At the same time, alkaline water has the added benefit of containing ionized calcium, which is very easy for the pancreas to use.
When you replace the ordinary water that you drink with alkaline water, you will start to see many benefits that are available to you. Over time, the alkaline water will help to balance your system out. Doctors in Korea and japan have been able to use water treatments alone to help reduce and even eliminate the amount of insulin that their diabetic patients needed to use.
Alkaline water is said to help counteract the acid that’s found in your bloodstream. It’s thought that drinking water with a higher pH can increase your metabolism and improve your body’s ability to absorb vital nutrients.
Some theorize that this will starve any cancer cell found in your body because cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment. Introducing something more alkaline is said to slow or stop cancer growth by balancing your body’s pH levels.
Cancerous cell do produce lactic acid, but it isn’t enough to alter the pH level of your entire body.
"BUT THEY DO INFECT OTHER CELLS”
Ionized water works on cancer in three major
ways. Because it is a good antioxidant, meaning it has a very negative ORP
value (Oxidation Reduction Potential), it neutralizes free radicals (i.e. ROS-
Reactive Oxygen Species), making many oxygen molecules available to the cancer
cells, either to slow the growth of cancer or to kill the cancer cells. This is
done with the hydroxyl ions in the ionized water.
