Alkaline ionized water can contribute to improved health.
Several Asian countries, including Japan, have been using water ionizers for over 40 years as part of their daily drinking routines. The people of these Asian countries have found that ionized water can contribute to fighting a variety of illnesses including; arthritis, digestive problems, skin disorders, fatigue and many others.
Alkaline ionized water has three main benefits for the body. The first main benefit is that it can aid in restoring the body’s pH balance. People who often feel tired or lethargic, or who suffer from colds and infections on a frequent basis, may suffer from high acidity in their bodies. The higher the acidity in a human body the higher the strain put on the immune system, making it more likely a common cold can be caught and other common ailments cause suffering.
A high acidity level can be caused by the kind of diet a person eats. It can also be caused by the environment a person lives in, if there is a lot of pollution in the air the body can become too acidic. High acidity levels are very common and can cause people to feel ill without them realising why.
Drinking alkaline ionized water can assist in neutralizing acid and can assist in returning the body’s optimal pH balance. When the body is at a neutral pH balance the immune system begins to work at its’ optimal level, thus becomes more efficient at fighting off disease and pain.
The second main benefit is that alkaline ionized water is a potent antioxidant. Free radicals can be a cause of damage to cells in the body. Antioxidants help to slow the oxidisation process in free radicals and prevents them causing damage to the cells in the body. Antioxidants help to keep the immune system operating at optimal levels. Therefore, antioxidants can help to maintain the body’s overall well-being.
The third main benefit is the fact that alkaline ionized water is absorbed quicker into the body, so hydrates the body quicker. Water molecules from a tap come out in a cluster of between 15 and 20 molecules. When the water is ionized it breaks the molecules clusters into smaller clusters of between 5 and 6 molecules. The smaller clusters of water molecules are absorbed much more efficiently by the body and re-hydrates the body faster. Water makes up about 60% of the human body. The more efficiently the body absorbs lots water the better a person will feel. The more hydrated a body is the better it is at flushing out all the toxins and waste that build up in the kidneys and liver. It also affects how easily the body can cool itself on a hot day. The better the hydration the cooler the body can stay.
