Ionized Water and Water Ionization
So what is water ionization? We get that question a lot. Technically the terms “water ionization” or “ionized water” don’t mean anything. They are made-up terms that are used to market electrolyzed water produced by our water ionizers. Electrolyzed water is water energized by water electrolysis, which produces the antioxidants that make you healthy.
Both ionized water and water ionization are used to describe the water molecule after it passes through water electrolysis. Water electrolysis, done either by the Sun or by electricity passing through plates inside a water ionizer, converts the H2O water molecule to OH- . OH- is a water molecule with an extra ion to give. That is why water ionizer companies use the term water ionization or ionized water to describe the end product — it has an extra ion to give!
The Extra Ion in Ionized Water
That extra ion in the water molecule is the best part of ionized water. That extra ion is called an antioxidant. The reason why it is called an antioxidant is because it will go into your cells and neutralize an unstable oxygen molecule. These unstable oxygen molecules are more commonly known as free radicals.
Free radicals are a normal part of our body processes. Free radicals are created from food digestion and stress and in a perfect world our body has the enzymes that it needs to take care of them. But our world isn’t perfect and most of our bodies don’t produce enough enzymes, especially as you get older. That’s why you need to supplement your diet with high antioxidant foods and beverages to neutralize the those excess free radicals so they won’t damage your cells and cause diseases.
Antioxidant Water to Fight Free Radicals
The big problem that Americans are facing is that our bodies are being overloaded with these free radicals. We are exposed to very unhealthy diets like fast-food that are full of chemicals and fats and carbohydrates that produce more free radicals than any body has been exposed to before. On top of our very unhealthy diets, we are also exposed to high levels of pollution and high levels of stress. Because of these reasons, the average American body is overwhelmed by free radicals. This is why our cells are deteriorating and we’re getting sick with diseases like diabetes and cancer and high blood pressure at alarmingly high rates.
Before humans made the move to industrialize societies, we were more likely to drink water that was fresh in from natural sources. This naturally sourced water has antioxidants in it because it is energized by the Sun. Now, we are drinking water from tap and water from bottles that has been sitting around for long periods of times and all of those ions have fizzled out. So we are no longer getting antioxidants from or water that is a key player in keeping our cells healthy.
That’s where a water ionizer is magical. A water ionizer replicates the sun’s natural water electrolysis process. The end result is you get water full of negative ions that are an antioxidant for your body. It’s just like drinking from a naturally sourced water.
Water ionizers also clean up all of the chemicals in your tap water. They take out the fluoride in the chlorine and the pipe cleaners and the leftover pharmaceutical drugs and everything else that’s nasty in water. The end result is that you drink water that is perfectly clean and full of antioxidants. Ionized or electrolyzed water is a much healthier water for you to drink.
Considering that you have to drink at least 8 ounces of water every single hour, it makes sense to drink ionized water. What is water ionization? Technically it’s electrolyzed water but it doesn’t really matter. Water ionization and ionized water are here to stay because of what they do not because they are technically accurate. We could call our products water electrolyzers but nobody would know what they are at this point because they have been around for over 40 years as water ionizers!
To your health!
