Ionised water in Sports and Gyms - What do international athletes say?


Personal Sustainability

It does not seem to matter whom you talk to at the moment, there are common themes of so much to do, busy-ness and challenge. We are taking the time in this newsletter to give some understanding about athletes and the benefits that they get from drinking ionised alkaline water. To me I think we are all the champions in our own lives, and equally need the support of the best body and mind to meet the demands. Ionised water is great support enabling the body the opportunity to de-stress. Stress creates the worst conditions in our body and encourages the right conditions for a plethora of illnesses to establish. In the longterm relieving acidity out of the body, caused by stress, means more even emotions and greater capability to maintain balance so helpful in these times.

 Starting cycling and jogging again:
"Recently I have been pushing myself to get out there and do some sporty stuff. I realised being around 52, that I have become a bit lazy in the last few years, and need to do more for my body again. Soooo ...... to action: I  bought myself a second hand road bike, a Peugeot classic similar to one I used to have 30 years ago. It was about 6 months ago, a few days into it, I was going hard out, pushing up long hills, quite a challenge for the untrained ...... I was so sure that I would be so sore. But no, I was hugely surprised that I wasnt. That made me thoughtful already then, remembering from years back that I always had issues with sore muscles, and at times cramps.
More recently I also started jogging again. Going for 40minutes within a week of starting, again pushing hard, and the same experience, not sore! How is that possible....?"

" I used to suffer from muscle cramps..."

Greg Ueckert, Cyclist and dentist, about his work out and ionised water:
Greg has been drinking ionised water for 2 years: “I do cycling as a hobby but I like to compete, I do races, and commute on my bike. I live in a really hot part of my country. So it is important to hydrate and be hydrated. So I did not know anything about what good water was, up until I met a mate. And he explained to me that there was the issue of acidity and cluster formation of the water. I got a machine, and I could immediately tell the difference when drinking the water because you can feel in the throat, due to the way the water clusters. I suffered from muscle cramps my entire life, and I really noticed in the last 2 years from using the water, that my cramping is much much less. I still when I have really hard efforts, I can cramp, but it is nothing as it used to be. It used to be debilitating, now if I have it, I can still ride through it. It is much less frequently as it used to be. And hydration wise, I get massage regularly, and my masseuse tells me that my skin looks well hydrated.
I also enjoy drinking it,... I became a bit of a water snob, because I can taste the difference. I can tell whether I want to swallow it, I know what that is like it is like little finger nails hanging onto my throat when I don't like water. 
My performance is better, I am using iW when I make my cycling drinks instead of buying Gaterade, in particular also with the hydration tabs, that have the electrolytes in there that you need when you are performing like that. But I always have one bottle because there is just nothing like water. The nice thing also was, my wife never was a big water drinker, and normally it was due to flavour and the acidity in the water and the whole thing, when swallowing it was not comfortable, and the minute she tasted this water, it was like a light that went on for her. Now we use it for the whole house, kids and supplements. ……"

What to Drink for Proper Hydration During Exercise

How much water is needed.....?
Water is essential for athletesStaying hydrated is essential for everyone, but athletes have an even greater need to maintain proper hydration. Working out, we require several liters of water a day. Even without workout we ought to drink between 2-4 liters depending on the size of the body.
Water is the most important nutrient for life and for our body. It has many important functions including regulating temperature, lubricating joints, and transporting nutrients and waste throughout the body.

Hydration During Exercise
Adequate fluid intake is essential to performance, and safety. The longer and more intensely you exercise, the more important it is to drink enough water, and the right kind of fluid. With heavy work outs, it pays to take supplemental electrolytes.That in combination with ionised water would be ideal.

Ray Giles –World Champion, Professional Trainer, Coach & Conditioner has had outstanding results for Athletes with ionized alkaline water.
 "Personally I have never felt better since I started drinking ionised water. I feel so much more alert and sharper. It’s like a fog has lifted. As for the athletes I train, I would never have believed it unless I had seen it. That ionized water could make such a remarkable difference to ones performance. They have more energy, don’t fatigue as quickly under stress and stay hydrated for longer. As their bodies are not as stressed they are more settled and relaxed in themselves. This allows them to make and execute great decisions under extreme pressure...."

Malcolm Howard – Olympic Gold Medalist – Rowing
” As an elite athlete, I have to do everything I can to be in the best possible health so I can do the training necessary to be a champion.  What I put in my body is just as important as how hard I train.  Alkaline water is an important part of my hydration in training.  My body is a high performance machine and water is its fuel.  To be at my best and strongest , I drink the highest quality water."

Jenny Abbott, Motueka/Nelson    Specialist in Nutritional Balancing, Chemical and Heavy metal detoxification and Sports Performance Nutrition:
"Water is our body’s most essential macronutrient, it’s a universal solvent and is the medium for transporting food materials to be used in the body.  Whether you are an elite athlete or an enthusiastic participant, it is vital to not only have optimal free radical scavengers but also to be able to deliver necessary fuel source directly to the cells as required.  Alkaline ionised water serves both of these requirements therefore, significantly improving recovery time and endurance. My findings in the practice  and my own cycling and gym training have shown noticeable benefit when incorporating alkaline water."
