Learning How to Ionize Water to Boost Your Health
Ionized water is more hydrating for your body, can help restore your pH balance, and fights aging and disease. They may sound like pretty bold proclamations, but the science behind ionized water and how it is formed means that these benefits to the human body are real.
So finding out how to ionize water to get all of its benefits is important. But the problem is that there are so many different products that claim to give you ionized water, and some even masquerade as ionized-water-producing products when they are in fact not, that you can end up being duped into buying something that won’t give you every one of the health benefits above.
So let me make this easy for you. If you want to find out how to ionize water so that you receive every benefit that this special water can bring, you need a water ionizer machine. And it would be helpful to understand how these machines make this possible, too.
How to Ionize Water the Right Way
A water ionizer machine is equipped with the technology to turn tap water into something which other man-made products cannot: micro-clustered, alkaline and antioxidant-packed water all in one drinking product.
You can only get ionized water with these properties from a top water ionizer machine, like the Genesis Platinum or KYK Genesis. You can’t receive water with all of these properties from an alkalizing flask. You can’t get it in bottled-form either. You can only get it direct from your home taps from an ionizer installed in your kitchen (or another place where you have a sink and taps).
But learning how to ionize water the right way is one thing. What is the science that proves this type of water will have multiple health benefits to humans?
Learn How to Ionize Water and Receive Better Cellular Hydration
To get a better idea of how ionized water is beneficial to the human body, we need to look at it scientifically. A water molecule, or H2O, consists of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom, hence the scientific name.
Standing on its own, the hydrogen atom contains one positive proton at its core, with one negative electron revolving around it in a ‘shell’. Oxygen, on the other hand, contains eight protons in its nucleus and eight more electrons revolving around it.
You could say that the key to all life is the combination of these two atoms. The single hydrogen electron and the eight electrons of oxygen help hydrogen and oxygen atoms combine to form a water molecule, or split to form ions. This happens because hydrogen tends to ionize by losing its single electron to form single H+ ions. A hydrogen bond (which I’m sure is a familiar term from old science classes) occurs when the electron of a single hydrogen atom is shared with another attracted atom such as oxygen that lacks an electron.
Water is not single molecules of H2O though, it forms in clusters. And the difference between ionized water and tap water is that the clusters of the former are formed by fewer molecules, hence the term ‘micro-clustered’. This smaller cluster size means ionized water gives better cellular hydration, as the smaller clusters more easily penetrate our cells. Better hydrated cells means toxins are flushed from the body and cell damage is reduced, both of which help combat aging.
Learn How to Ionize Water and Receive Antioxidants
Micro-clustered water occurs because of the electrolysis process inside an ionizer machine and this has another positive effect on water. Electrolysis is performed using a platinum-coated titanium electrode in the unit’s electrolysis chamber. This causes cations, which are positive ions, to gather at the negative electrodes creating reduced water. Negatively charged ions, called anions, gather at the positive electrode to make oxidized water.
This ionized, reduced water not only has micro-clustered properties, it also has water molecules in it that have an excess amount of electrons (e-). And it these positive ions that give ionized water its antioxidant properties as their excess electrons prevent cellular stress by neutralizing electron-hungry free radicals inside our bodies.
So learning how to ionize water the best way leads to a better understanding of the science behind what makes this type of water terrifically healing for us all to drink.
