Features of ionised alkaline water, and its effects on the body
Ionised water is made through an electrolytic process.
Source water gets separated into an acid and an alkaline part, meaning literally that the water gest separated into alkaline and acidic water: the new water that forms at the cathode (negative electrode) is called "alkaline reducing water." This is based on alkaline minerals being attracted to the negative pole, changing the pH of the water congregating around the negative pole.
The new water that forms at the anode (positive electrode) is called acidic oxidized water, again based on acidic forming minerals congregating around the positive pole.
We want to drink the alkaline reduced water because it is rich in active hydrogen, which functions as a reducer or antioxidant!
Reducing is beneficial to the human body because as the antioxidant is available to the cells, in there it reacts with the free radicals. The antioxidant loses its reducing capacity by eliminating the aggressive form of oxygen, the free radical. In this process stabel oxygen is formed, and moves into the blood stream and into the cellular fluids, increasing energy levels.
Although ionised water does not offer oxygen directly, it makes oxygen available to the blood stream and the cellular tissues and fluids through a chain reaction with the free radicals.
Alkaline reduced water is:
1. Hexagonally shaped with great reducing capacity.
2. Quickly absorbed into the human body and rich in active hydrogen and hydroxyl ions (antioxidants)
3. Has smaller water molecules clusters, hydrating the body more efficiently.
5. High in alkalinity assisting the body cells and organs to keep an optimal alkaline balance
PH stands for "potential of hydrogen." The pH scale measures the acidity and alkalinity of substances. Water with a high pH is rich in active hydrogen, which detoxifies our body.
ORP stands for "oxygen reduction potential." This is a scale, which measures the ability of water to reduce or oxidize toxins, and specifically also to reduce free radicals.
A negative ORP means the water can reduce toxins, and can act as an antioxidant to reduce free radicals. A positive ORP means the water can’t reduce toxins, and reinforces an oxidising environment. So, water with a high pH will have a negative ORP because of the high amount of active hydrogen.
When we drink high pH, and medium to high negative ORP water, we detoxify our body, hydrate it well, and feed it with oxygen.
This leads to better digestion, better metabolism, less stress, and more energy. Supporting the body to be alkaline, and hydrating it really well, we support our organs to function optimally. Great aid and foundation for preventative health care!
