Is Ionized Water a Scam?
Its been 45 years since water ionizers were first developed and sold in Japan and still Google and Wikipedia think they are a scam. So, is there an ionized water conspiracy? We think so.
First lets establish some facts. Water ionizers are used in hospitals all around the world, particularly in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea for over twenty years and have been proven to cut recovery time by as much as half.
Water ionizers are also medically certified to treat diabetes, digestion issues, high blood pressure, gout and more.
If you search for electrolyzed water on www.pubmed.gov, 322 peer reviewed research articles come up. Not one of the says “we tested alkaline or acidic ionized water and nothing happened.”
Yet, the very first results you see on Google and Wikipedia are that alkaline ionized water is a scam. That it’s not possible to ionize water. That it’s snake oil on tap. Even the Wall Street Journal and Wired Magazine have articles suggesting this. If you read these articles, you’ll find that they are not well sourced. In fact their sources seem to be each other. Not one of them makes a reference to the 322 articles that are on pubmed.gov, many touting the health benefits of alkaline electrolyzed (ionized) water or the topical uses of electrolyzed acidic water for sterilization and more.
Ironically, these articles suggest that there is no legitimate research on ionized water. That water ionizers are sold through hype and false testimonials.
Take a Closer Look at Ionized Water Research
But take a closer look on the research that has been done and you will see that dozens of reputable universities in Japan, Korea, and even the United States (including the our own Army) have conducted tests on ionized water and found, that amongst other things, it reduces oxidative stress in your cells because it is a powerful antioxidant. That fact alone means that it’s healthy to drink. If you try to argue otherwise, you are basically saying that antioxidants are not good for you. And everyone knows that there is virtually consensus among doctors and dietitians that people need more antioxidants in their diet.
Major organizations in the United States have taken notice of the antioxidant and hydrating power of ionized water. In fact, many sports teams, such as the Baltimore Ravens, and even Las Vegas casinos, give their players and employees ionized water. It’s sold through hundreds of health practitioner offices such as chiropractors and medical doctors.
Water Ionizers are Medical Products
Our very own EOS water ionizers are certified by the Korean Food and Drug Administration has medical products and listed with the USFDA as medical products. If our water ionizers did not meet the criteria for being a medical product, they would not receive these certifications!
The question remains, then, why is it when you search on Google or Wikipedia do you find at the top results are always articles that suggests that alkaline ionized water is a scam?
We have a theory that these results are profit driven. Major corporations that sell you water and health products would lose a lot if water ionizers became commonplace. If every American could have a healthy source of antioxidants right in their kitchen that kept their oxidative stress levels low in their cells, they would not get as sick. and they would not need to go to doctors as much.
A water ionizer produces a liter of ionized water for only about $0.02 a liter. That is much cheaper bottled water!
Corporations Lie about Ionized Water to Protect their Profits
To these corporations, water ionizers are a direct threat to their bottom line. So, it’s easy for them to publish mis-leading articles on their company blogs and watch those posts get to the top of Google because of the size and power of their websites.
If every American got a water ionizer, it would change the money flow in our economy significantly. It would empower Americans. They would be healthier. People with lower oxidative stress levels flat-out think better and feel better and can be more productive. Bottled water companies would be virtually out of business as we would be able to bottle better water right in our own homes.
Also, if every American had a water ionizer, we would be relying a whole lot less on pharmaceutical drugs and other expensive medical treatment plans. The antioxidants would heal and protect us. It would be a whole new world and the people who are profiting most from our sickness do not want this!
We encourage every single person to do their homework when it comes to water ionizers. Look at reputable medical websites like pubmed.gov and read the peer-reviewed research. We know some of the jargon can be confusing, but the synopsis of those articles generally gets the point across.
Purchasing a water ionizer is it expensive upfront commitment but it is something that will pay dividends to you and your family for years to come. Don’t believe the powers-that-be who try to keep a powerful product like this down. A water ionizer is everything that we say it is and there are forty-five years worth of peer reviewed published articles that prove that fact!
There is an ionized water conspiracy but we will keep fighting to get the facts out. We hope you will join us and spread the truth!
To your health!
