The Ionization of Water and What it Means For Your Body
There are these little things known as negative hydrogen ions and they play a crucial role in all life on the planet. The reason the humble negative hydrogen ion (H-) is so important to life on earth is because it is a powerful life-sustaining antioxidant.
And where can you find these H- antioxidants? They are present in natural raw foods and ancient water sources such as glacial water run offs; particularly springs, lakes and wells. But there is one more source where you can get water that has these antioxidant, life-sustaining qualities. The ionization of water process in a water ionizer machine creates a drinking water that is extremely similar to the water found gushing down high-altitude waterfalls from glaciers or mountains, where through velocity, atmosphere, gravity, and violent impact, a natural ionization of the water occurs whilst absorbing minerals at the same time.
Fighting Free Radicals Through the Ionization of Water
The reason why glacial water or ionized water from a water ionizer machine is so life-sustaining is because it neutralizes another abundant presence in living things: free radicals. But what are they? To understand, we need to roll back our memory bank to high school and think about the structure of cells. Humans are composed of many different cells made up of different molecules. Molecules are one or more atoms joined by chemical bonds. Still with me? Well these atoms consist of a nucleus, neutrons, protons and electrons. And it is the electrons that are important here, as the number of electrons surrounding the atom determines how reactive a molecule is inside our body.
Free radicals arise when our body produces unstable atoms missing an electron. These molecules are extremely reactive and destroy healthy cells in our bodies by trying to steal electrons from their atoms. This is bad for our health and can lead to cancer because the damage free radicals do to other cells warps their DNA, resulting in more mutant cells (I.e. disease) that can grow and reproduce inside of us.
And this is why the ionization of water is important to sustain our life – the antioxidants inside ionized water neutralize these dangerous molecules by giving the free radicals the electrons they require whilst staying stable. Once the free radical has acquired what it needs from the ionized water, it becomes inert and its path of destruction is ended.
So though the ionization of water process, we can drink water that not only tastes good, but water that floods our cells with disease and cancer busting antioxidants.
How the Ionization of Water Process Takes Place Inside an Ionizer
Special conditions are required to make rare antioxidant water in the natural environment and a special process is required to produce ionized antioxidant water from a water ionizer.
These machines take tap water and re-direct it into an ionized water unit. Here it fills into what is called an electrolysis chamber that replicates the conditions needed to create the energy that fills the water with antioxidant ions. This works by passing the water through a platinum-coated titanium electrode where electrolysis takes place and the water is imbued with excess healing antioxidants that destroy the destructive potential in free radicals.
The Alkalinity Produced by the Ionization of Water
Glacial and spring water shares another property with ionized water: they both sit at a similar level on the pH scale. This is because, similar to how glacial spring water is turned alkaline through an abundance of natural minerals present in it, the ionization of water turns tap water alkaline through the presence of its antioxidant minerals.
And if we wish to prolong our life expectancy, we need this alkaline drinking water to combat the acidity in our bodies that is caused by a bad diet and lack of exercise. In the end, the ionization of water delivers a double-whammy of healing properties, and it is one of the best processes around for its health sustaining effects.
