How Water Quality Impacts water Ionizer Performance
Water quality will play a significant role in how your water ionizer – in fact any water ionizer – performs and its longevity. A water ionizer requires mineral content to create those valued ionizations/ alterations in pH, ORP and to also produce molecular hydrogen H2 in water. Minerals are not only required, they are good. Calcium, potassium and magnesium all naturally occur in water and are called the “essential alkalizing minerals” because they are essential to our health.
The minerals in water are conductive. Conductivity allows for the electrical charge that produces the alterations we are seeking in alkaline, ionized water. Minerals provide a certain “vitality” to water.
Water that lacks mineral content, such as water from reverse osmosis or distillation, as no conductivity and is considered by many to be “dead” or denatured water. It is important to note that all water found in nature has some level of dissolved mineral content, so these types of “pure” waters are literally a man-made phenomenon. Our bodies are designed to drink water with minerals, to use calcium for bones and magnesium for the heart etc. and mankind has been doing so since the dawn of time. It is only in the last few decades, that we have been exposed to pure and mineral free water – often in bottles.
The more mineral content your water has, the more easily your water ionizer will alter/ionize the water and the better water ionization performance(pH,OR, H2) it will achieve and conversely. Water with a high level of mineral content is called hard water, while water with a low mineral content is called soft water.
That stated, all AlkaViva water ionizers will produce an ideal range of healthy drinking water, in both hard and soft water areas, unless used in extreme water quality situations. Please contact AlkaViva Technical Support if your water is unusually hard or soft as you will probably need pretreatment (more details below).
Hard Water Explained
What is Hard Water?
If you live in a hard water area, perhaps you have noticed mineral deposits on your dishes and hot water kettle, or rings of insoluble soap scum in your bathtub. These are signs of hard water. Hard water is water that contains high levels of scaling calcium, iron or magnesium mineral ions. These minerals do not pose any health threat, unless in very high amounts, but they can engage in reactions that leave deposits or scale that may damage surfaces or appliances.
Hard water mineral deposits or “scaling”, is the precipitation of minerals which form lime scale. Scale can clog pipes and can decrease the life of virtually all appliances in the home, especially those that use hot water. Scale can do the same thing to your water ionizer, decreasing water flow, water ionization performance and longevity of the water ionizer .
Signs of Hard Water
* Difficult to form lather with soap * White mineral deposits on your glassware * Soap scum in your bath tub * White mineral deposits on your shower head * White mineral deposits in your tea pot, iron, or other electrical appliance that uses water
Water Hardness and Water Ionizer Performance
A water ionizer requires mineral content to operate because minerals conduct electrical charge that produces the alterations found in ionized water. Water that has little or no minerals has no pathway for the electrolysis or “ionization” to occur. water Ionizers are designed to perform optimally within a specific range of mineral content in the source water; too many minerals may damage any water ionizer, too few you may experience decreased water ionization performance. With the right range of conductive minerals your water ionizer will easily alter the water and produce expected water ionization performance measurements in H2, pH and ORP.
Hard Water Treatment Solutions
To protect your investment properly, you must first determine the level of hardness in your water. You can use the Hard Water Test Kit that is supplied with every AlkaViva water ionizer, have your water tested, or get test data from your supplier. The following are AlkaViva’s recommended treatment solutions:
AlkaViva does not recommend using a water ionizer without pretreatment of water that has one or more of the following measurements :
Hardness (or Calcium Carbonate) over 150 ppm (8.5 grains).
Iron over .3ppm.
TDS below 40ppm or over 600ppm.
Calcium above 50ppm.
Note: some reports will show “ppm” some will show “mg/l” – they are the same. Knowingly operating your water ionizer above these levels may void your warranty and/or decrease your water ionizer’s performance. In no event shall AlkaViva or its dealers be liable for any direct, indirect, incidental or special consequential damages to property whatsoever, arising from use of its products with improperly treated or untreated hard water.
AlkaViva’s AquaSafe Water Quality Assurance Program
Many water ionizer companies will sell you an expensive water ionizer and never mention hard water. If you live in an area that has hard water, that is like throwing money down the drain! To properly protect the investment you’ve made in your ionizer, and ensure you get the right pre-treatment at a great price, we are proud to offer our AquaSafe Water Quality Assurance Program.
AquaSafe Water Quality Assurance Program offers you two important water quality “insurance” benefits:
Hard Water Test Kit. Each AlkaViva water ionizer / H2 Generator includes a highly effective Hard Water Test Kit. The kit includes a simple-to-use hard water test strip which in less than a minute will determine how hard your water is (if at all). The test results fall in ranges of hardness. We include our recommended pre-treatment solution for each range.
The Most Complete Range Of Hard Water Solutions. The AquaSafe Water Quality Assurance Program allows you to purchase the appropriate pre-treatment solution within 30 days of purchasing your water ionizer ]
AlkaViva does not recommend using a water ionizer downstream (or after) a sodium or potassium based ion-exchange water softener. If you have a sodium or potassium ion-exchange water softener, you will need to do one of the following:
Bypass the system (if the source water meets the above Water Quality criteria).
Change the plumbing connectors and install the water softener on the hot water only.
Install a Reverse Osmosis water prefiltration unit and water ionizer Remineralization Cartridge. The Reverse Osmosis will take out the sodium or potassium while the remineralizing cartridge will add healthy minerals back into the water.
Reverse Osmosis (RO) and water Distillers
water ionizers will not work well downstream (or after) a ReverseOsmosys or water distiller. Many homes with an ion-exchange water softening system will have an RO system. These systems remove virtually all the mineral content and leave the water with no conductivity. If you have an RO or distiller, you will need to do one of the following:
Bypass the reverse osmosys prefiltration system (if the source water meets the below Water Quality Tolerances).
Soft water is very low in mineral and dissolved solid content which gives water its conductivity. Such water would have a TDS below 40 ppm.
In areas with extremely soft water (or if using a rainwater catchment system), it may not be possible to achieve optimal water ionization performance of your AlkaViva water ionizer. In this situation, an AlkaViva Remineralization Cartridge is recommended. AlkaViva has incorporated a proprietary blend of 70+ organic and inorganic minerals into its Remineralizing Cartridge.
The quality of well water can vary greatly and pose some health risks if not tested and mitigated. Well water needs to be tested before using with a water ionizer. Most wells are perfectly suitable for water ionizer operation; you just don’t want to be on the wrong side of that equation unwittingly.
The use of well water poses a number of questions when considering use of a water ionizer. In addition to measurements of water quality for water ionization performance and durability /longevity, health safety related issues are also important considerations when using well water.
Recommendation: Many states require a well water test report in the closing documents of a home sale. Many local governmental Health Agencies offer free testing of well water. We recommend contacting them first. AlkaViva offers at a discounted price a Professional Water Test done in a certified laboratory. More details here.
Please contact AlkaViva if your water falls into any one of the above categories. If your situation requires additional technical assistance, AlkaViva Technical Support will work with you to find a happy solution. If your water is within 10% of two or more of the Extreme Hardness categories, you could possibly experience performance issues with your water ionizer. You may require pretreatment. Please contact Technical Support for guidance.
If you are uncertain of the water quality in your area, please contact your local water supplier and request the specific Water Quality information above. The appropriate phone number will be on your water bill. If using well water, contact your county or state health department to inquire about water testing services.

Here is a sampling of industry-first innovations AlkaViva has brought to market:
AlkaViva introduced the first automatic reverse cleaning system – MARC with Melody jp104 water ionizer. A single reversible motor driven system that creates a 1:1, acid to alkaline cleaning ratio, to protect water ionizers from damaging scale build-up. It eliminates the need to wait during cleaning.
Launched DARC the first dual solenoid-driven automatic reverse cleaning system with the highly effective 1:1, acid to alkaline cleaning ratio, with no wait for ionized water while cleaning – in Athena JS205 and Delphi IO 400 U water ionizers.
What you need to know about water ionizers performance…
water ionizer performance is NOT absolute. It depends on three important variables: water quality, the power applied at each setting and water flow rate. In addition to these three variables, performance year-in and year-out is important and depends on how well a water ionizer’s electrode cleaning system works to keep the electrodes and membranes clean. Beware of any company or sales person who tells you “our water ionizer will do “X”. It is simply not true. What is true is that when you understand the variables, and water ionizer cleaning systems, you can make an informed choice. Learn how our AutoAdjust technology helps overcome the three variables and why DARC II cleaning keeps water ionization performance optimal over time. Be smart.
Truth: over the years, the alkaline water ionizer industry has run rife with undocumented water ionization performance claims around pH and ORP and now molecular hydrogen (H2).
Truth: many people who sell alkaline water ionizers state performance absolutes, as in our water ionizer will do “X”.
Truth: you can cut through all this. Below are four things you need to know about water ionizer’s performance metrics in ANY electric water ionizer.
Your Source Water Matters.
This first point cannot be emphasized enough. water ionization performance levels are significantly impacted by source water – whether you are talking about H2, pH and/or ORP. Any water ionizer running on hard water, or water with elevated levels of minerals or high Total Dissolved Solids (TDS), will always perform better. The harder or more mineralized the water, the better the top-end water ionization performance. Conversely, the exact same water ionizer on soft water with low mineral content will always perform lower than it can in hard water.
Comparisons are only legitimate if done using the exact same source water. Beware of importers in hard water areas who over-state performance. For example, Life Ionizers™ is located in Carlsbad, California. They have extreme TDS – over 600ppm1. To contrast, our TDS in Reno is 10% of that at between 60 – 70 ppm. Any credible water ionizer company will state a range of water ionization performance. Not absolutes.
Your water Ionizer’s Flow Rate Matters.
The second important point is that a water ionizer’s flow rate will affect water ionization performance. All things being equal, slower water flow rate will produce more water ionization performance as water will stay longer in contact with the electrodes. Some manufacturers intentionally produce water ionizers with slower flow rates to compensate for less efficient electrodes. Slowing the flow will also typically raise pH, and high pH water doesn’t taste good to most people. The vast majority of alkaline ionized water drinkers settle on lower pH ranges for regular drinking.
water Ionizers offer selectable alkaline levels – typically four – that you choose with a push of a button. Each time you choose a higher level, more power is sent to the electrodes and incrementally more water ionization performance is achieved. water Ionizers that advertise high power (some go as high as 800 watts!) are ironically only advertising that they have inefficient electrodes and membrane systems. An incredibly important and often overlooked point is that water ionizers that utilize higher power will experience higher electrode heat. When electrodes get hot, the platinum plating deteriorates. Compromised plating delivers less water ionization performance over time. Many water ionizers tout higher power as the solution to water ionization performance. In the long run, it isn’t.
AutoAdjust in AlkaViva water ionizers detects the hardness of filtered water and dynamically adjusts/sets power applied on electrodes to what is required.
The effectiveness of a water ionizer’s electrode cleaning system affects water ionization performance over time. This is also an overlooked point. You can have the perfectly mineralized water, the greatest electrodes, proper water flow rate and power, but if your water ionizer can’t eliminate scale, its water ionization performance will drop. Quickly, if you have very hard water. We have tested scaled up water ionizers that do not produce any alteration in the water. To achieve optimal water ionization performance the electrodes must be kept clean – over time. How effectively an water ionizer’s electrode cleaning system works is critical. Don’t be misled by gimmicky marketing names for electrode cleaning systems – it all boils down to the acid to alkaline cleaning ratio. When shopping, ask what the cleaning ratio is and how the system achieves that. If you do not get a lucid answer, run. Fast.
The Ultimate Solution.
While we can’t control source water, we do offer you the most advanced and effective solutions to all the other variables.
Convenience. You want a water flow rate that is fast enough, but not too fast. Super-fast flow rates will not only lower water ionization performance but they will significantly compromise water filtration. Water filters work on contact time. The faster water flow, the less contact time, especially in GAC and vitamin C water filters. The AlkaViva H2 water ionizer Series runs at 3 lpm which is the ideal balance between great water ionization performance and great water filtration.
molecular hydrogen H2 Infusion Technology. We employ the highly advanced Smart Electrode design and manufacturing. Next, we match the Smart Electrodes with our own proprietary membrane technology that is optimized to produce optimal molecular hydrogen H2 and ORP -water ionization performance.
Efficiency. AlkaViva H2 water ionizers employs the most sophisticated and advanced power delivery system. The correct current density ensures the longest electrode life and is only possible using more advanced (smaller sized) plates. You get power efficiency and water ionization performance. While other less advanced water ionizers are required to use maxed out power of up to 800 watts to achieve water ionization performance, AlkaViva H2 water ionizers run 150 watts of peak power ensuring fantastic power density, unmatched water ionization performance and long durable plate/electrode life. Our power supply also includes Auto Adjust which automatically adjust the background power using pulse width modification technology – optimizing water ionization performance. You get great water ionization/alteration – even at the better tasting and lower pH levels that most people drink.
Independent testing. AlkaViva is the only water ionizer company to have commissioned an EPA-certified, third party, independent laboratory to document the water performance results of different brands and prove our point about efficiency and performance. Bigger just isn’t better. When it comes to technology – including water ionizers – smaller is.
Note on molecular hydrogen H2 Performance: while we understand the basic science of how molecular H2 is produced during electrolysis, it is a new focus in our industry. No one fully understands all the unique nuances of this delicate electro-chemical process. We don’t fully know how certain properties, in addition to hardness and TDS, affect molecular H2 performance. Apart from TDS and hardness, it is entirely possible that certain water chemistries lend to better performance, and others to less.
That is a lot of information. However, we feel these are all important points for properly informed customers to consider before simply reading – and believing – a company’s declaration that “our water ionizer does X”.
We drink alkaline ionized water for the healthy properties. The electrodes create the water electrolysis /ionization which deliver those benefits. When it comes to water ionizers, understanding electrodes in the water cell is like understanding the importance of your cardiac system to your overall health.
The water cell is the heart of a water ionizer. It consists of a series of electrodes (plates), each separated by a membrane. This page will explain how water ionizers electrode technologies differ and what that means to water ionizer performance and ultimately your health.
There is so much hype and misinformation about water ionizer electrodes or plates. Some say bigger plates are better. Others make you think that more plates are better. Some advertise more power applied on electrodes– like 800 watts – as if we were powering 20-inch sub-woofers. We are ionizing water. The reality is that bigger or more plates or more power means inefficient engineering and lower quality materials and manufacturing. More or bigger DOES NOT mean better water ionization performance. An often overlooked yet incredibly important point is that more power also means more heat, which means the platinum plating breaks down faster on the surface of the water ionizer electrode. This equals poor water ionization performance over time.
There is hype too around water ionizers electrode/plate type. water ionization performance is not about the electrode/ plate type, but rather the sophistication of the engineering and the quality of the materials and manufacturing. Educate yourself on some basics and you will easily see why our Smart Electrodes offer you the most advanced engineering, along with the best materials and manufacturing. This means more efficient water ionization performance and lasting durability for electrodes/water cell/water ionizer. That is powerful. That is smart.
All things that smart shoppers look for.
Smart Electrodes start with the highest quality materials. We use certified 99.9% pure titanium from Japan and the highest quality platinum.
The electrodes are engineered employing an advanced flat design that offers more effective surface area than slotted or mesh plates of the same size.
Then the electrodes are robotically electro-plated using a proprietary technique. A computer controlled robotic arm is used to apply the platinum, under pressure, multiple times and from different angles that allows the most precise plating application. The resulting plate surface can direct a uniform electron flow and provide the most efficient power saturation.
AlkaViva’s proprietary electroplating process and the resulting Smart Electrodes feature technological advances and enhanced water ionization performance characteristics which allow superior water ionizer performance in the following ways:
Superior platinum adhesion
Superior conductivity which allows for lower power and higher water ionization efficiency
Increased surface area; up to 3x the number of vertices as smooth dipped plates
Optimized water flow dynamics over the plate surface due to vertices (increased water ionization performance proven in independent US EPA certified testing)
When you discover more about water ionizer Electrodes, you can easily understand what puts Smart Electrodes in a league of their own. Get your PhD in electrodes by clicking on each topic below.
Titanium is the base material in every water ionizer electrode/plate, because it has proven safe and effective. It is corrosion resistant, has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any metal, is very durable, and demonstrates the ability to easily change polarity, which is critically important in the water ionization process. The best water ionizer plates are coated with platinum because it was determined in a 1992 study by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, that platinum is the only entirely safe material to use in water ionizer plating/coating.
There are three basic types of plates:
Flat Plate/electrode: The most common, basic and simple plate design.
Mesh Plate/electrode: The most technically advanced configuration; also the most expensive to manufacture.
Slotted or “Hybrid” Plate/electrode: A less expensive and less effective version of mesh plate technology.
Regardless of what you read, the most critical part of an water ionizer electrode is not the type but rather how the electrodes are engineered, what materials are used and how they are applied or manufactured.
There are three, distinctly different, types of electrodes / plate designs offered in the market today and each has its own advantages or disadvantages. These are solid plates, slotted or “hybrid” electrodes / plates and mesh electrodes / plates.
These differences have a dramatic effect on power delivery inside of the cell. All three types of plates can deliver the electrical current to the water, but why are AlkaViva electrodes / plates the most efficient? Easy … our highly advanced Smart Electrode Technology!
Traditional Flat electrodes /Plates
A low quality flat plate has no way to organize or channel the current being delivered, meaning it has an inconsistent saturation of electrons. They move across the electrodes / plate finding the path of least resistance, often channeling together and are not effectively or evenly dispersed. This is like watering a garden and having the water run to the low spots and pool there. This results in an inconsistent delivery of power and less efficient / effective water ionization results.
Slotted electrodes /Plates
In contrast to a flat electrodes /plate, with slotted electrodes, there is a clear path for the electrons to travel in more predictable directions – effectively distributing the power in a consistent pattern. When we till our garden into rows and irrigate we are channeling the water to be delivered to the roots where it is needed most. The slotted electrodes /plate is more effective than the traditional flat electrode/ plate. Often has a less effective surface area, depending on the size of the slot.
Mesh electrodes /Plates
A mesh electrode /plate uses the same principle as the slotted plate, but improves upon it by providing cross-channeling to more evenly direct electron flow. The applied current more evenly saturates the plate, increasing the effective delivery of electrical current to create better alteration /ionization in your water. Can have a less effective surface area depending on the design of the mesh electrodes .
Long term research and development findings derived from a 1992 study by the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare indicate platinum to be the only entirely safe material for use in water ionizer plating/coating.
Two distinct methods – Plating (dipping) and Coating; are employed to apply the platinum surface to the titanium electrode/ plate:
Plating: Also known as Cladding or Dipping, plating is the process by which a titanium plate is submerged in a platinum solution. This is the most commonly used manufacturing process due to its cost efficiency.
Coating: Also known as Electroplating, coating is a technically advanced process designed to achieve a higher degree of consistency and uniformity.
The two biggest differences between plating and coating are:
The amount of titanium crystals produced
The surface coverage characteristics
The following examples visually illustrate two distinct platinum application techniques, Plating (dipping) and Coating (Electroplating).

AlkaViva is able to totally prevent titanium leaching on the electrodes by two methods:
Complete and uniform coverage. Our coating process surpasses all other processes in the water ionization industry to more completely and evenly cover the titanium plates with pure platinum, including all edges and all surfaces.
More efficient use of power. This means we can apply less power more efficiently which creates far less heat and stress on the water ionizer electrode/plate during the electrical load phases.
Optimal water ionization Results Without Additives
AlkaViva employs proprietary technologies which are able to achieve optimal water ionization-alkalizing and acidifying results without the use of (potentially harmful) solutions such as salt enhancers.
All water ionizers employ ion-selective membranes to separate the electrodes and enable the water to “ionically separate” the water into an alkaline and acidic stream. The membrane is absolutely critical in how a waterionizer performs. You can have a well-designed electrode/plate, powered optimally but if you have poor membranes, then you have poor water ionization performance.
AlkaViva’s Infusion Membranes are made in-house and are ultrasonically pressed, rather than chemically bonded. This provides you with a distinctly superior electrode membrane, designed to work specifically with our Smart Electrodes, giving you unmatched water ionization performance-pH, -ORP, H2.
usage of more watts and amps , spreading the same input voltage over a larger surface area results in less efficiency. This does not deliver the power evenly or efficiently and must do so with greater resistance.
More power means more heat, which means the platinum plating breaks down faster on the surface of the water ionizer electrode. This equals poor water ionization performance over time.
Water Ionizer Cleaning Systems: Why DARC II auto cleanse is the best electrode cleanse.
We drink alkaline ionized water to enjoy the profound benefits created from the transformation of water through created through electrolysis – or more loosely “water ionization”.
Here is the situation: Water has minerals/electrolits. Minerals build up on the electrodes and membranes and these are the two components in your water ionizer that transform the water. Scale essentially “coats” these components, compromising their ability to transform/ionize the water. This mean a decrease in pH, ORP and H2 -water ionization performance, which in turn, reduces any benefit you receive from the water – precisely what you bought your water ionizer for in the first place.
All water ionizers have cleaning systems for electrodes, but all plate cleaning systems are not created equal. Most water ionizers employ outdated plate cleaning systems that have been around for years without any advancement or technological improvement.
Smart Shopper’s Shortcut What you need to know about water ionizer cleaning systems…Before you buy a water ionizer, it is crucial that you understand what type of electrode/plate cleaning cycle it employs. This is one of the most important considerations because it determines how well your water ionizer will perform over the long haul. If you are shopping around, ask about the type of electrode / plate cleaning system and how it works. If all the salesperson can do is quote a gimmicky cleaning system name, but can’t tell you the specific acidic to alkaline ratio in their system, or tell you specifically how it works…run. Fast! Then call us. We’ll tell you precisely how DARC II works and why it is the best water ionizer cleaning system available.
The DARC Advantage.
AlkaViva set a new industry standard in 2006 when it launched the patented Dual Automatic Reverse Cleaning system (USA Patent No. 6,951,225). DARC was, and still is – thanks to the patent protection – revolutionary because it cleans the electrodes in the water cell with every use, eliminating damaging scale buildup. It accomplishes this by reversing polarity each time you use the water ionizer.
The revolutionary DARC cleaning system eliminates mineral scaling on the electrodes – protecting your investment and ensuring years of healthy water from your water ionizer. DARC is highly effective because it works in the background to clean your electrode, each time you use your water ionizer and while you are actually using it. The result is a vastly improved acidic to alkaline cleaning ratio, which is critical to keeping the electrodes cleaner than other systems that offer a 15:1 ratio or a 30:1 ratio. The Kangen Enagic™ SD501 which retails at almost $4000, only cleans using a 30:1 ratio1. The importance of this breakthrough cannot be understated.
Additionally, with the dual solenoid system that directs water flow (actually what is patented and what DARC refers to), you never have to wait while your water ionizer cleans to get your alkaline water – an industry first! AlkaViva’s Jupiter Athena JS 205 Classic and UltraDelphi IO 400 U water ionizers employ DARC cleaning for electrodes.
The Best just got Better: the New and Improved DARC II electrodes autoclean system .
AlkaViva once again sets a new industry standard by launching DARC II in its new H2 water ionizer series. Over the 11 years since we released DARC we have learned a few things and consequently saw how it could be substantially improved. DARC II offers you the same highly effective cleaning as the original DARC, and convenience of never waiting, but now gives you increased DURABILITY.
Because the original patented DARC solenoid system is outside the water cell, the solenoids DO NOT benefit from the acidic cleaning. The electronic solenoids in DARC contain a metal actuator that operates on a very tight tolerance. Once it gets even a hint of scale, it becomes susceptible to failure. Over 11 years since we launched DARC this was not an uncommon issue in hard water areas.
We improved DARC II by eliminating the electronic solenoid containing the metal actuators. We eliminated the potential failure of the electronic solenoid and also now employ a mechanical ceramic valve (replacing actuator) that is 100% resistant to any scaling. We did not stop there. Reversing the polarity each time you used the water ionizer did not in reality create the best possible acidic to alkaline ratio – which would be 1:1. Imagine you fill an 8 oz glass, then one liter, then a 16 oz glass, then a gallon and on and on. You don’t come close to a 1:1 ratio – even over the life of the water ionizer. We now reverse the polarity every 5 liters – which creates a ratio much closer to 1:1, thus improving the effectiveness.
DARC II is the new standard in on-board water ionizer cleaning systems borne of experience and research and development. Another AlkaViva first.
Reverse Polarity Cleaning.
Each electrode in your water ionizer has either a positive or negative polarity. Reverse polarity cleaning is simply when your water ionizer reverses the polarity; positive electrodes become negative and conversely. When an electrode is “bathed” in alkaline water containing scaling minerals, it becomes susceptible to scaling. When the polarity is reversed, the same electrode is now exposed to acidic water which removes the scale.
All water ionizers clean using reverse polarity. However, the cleaning systems differ radically in how they trigger it, the interval at which they perform the electrode cleaning cycle, and most importantly, how effective they are.
Understanding other Cleaning Systems.
Since it is the acidic water which eats away the scale, for optimal efficacy the cleaning cycle must feature a good “acid to alkaline cleaning ratio”. The more acidic water that is run to bath the electrodes the cleaner they remain and the greater their water ionization performance and longevity.
The way a water ionizer is “programmed” to clean the electrodes is crucial in determining the electrode cleaning ratio. The most common systems have been in use many years without improvement:
Manual system: you must remember to reverse the polarity and initiate the electrode cleaning cycle yourself.
Timer system: cleans at a set-interval, such as every 15 minutes of use. After 15 minutes of run time, the next time you turn the water ionizer on, the unit starts the cleaning cycle. Most often you must wait while it completes the electrode cleaning cycle.
Volume system: Similar to the timer system, but cleans based on a set volume of water (Say for example 10 gallons) passing through the water ionizer. You must also wait.
Post cleaning systems: while they clean after each use, the clean cycle is extremely short resulting in a poor acidic to alkaline ratio. They also use a finite amount of water to clean – only the water that is in the water cell (since the cleaning is triggered after the water ionizer is shut down). The better post-use systems drain the cell when the cycle is complete, so you do not have contaminated water in the cell that will expel into the drinking water when the water ionizer is turned on. These draining systems are prone to failure at both the PCB and drain valve level.. Not as robust, effective or durable as DARC.
Each has its draw backs: you can forget to trigger a manual cycle, the timer and volume systems have poor acidic to alkaline electride cleaning ratios. The worst drawback is that with each of the above systems you have to wait for the cycle to complete before you can receive alkaline ionized water.
In summary, we love that you have read this far! Because now you can see – emphatically – why cleaning is so important and why and how AlkaViva’s H2 water ionizer Series with its new and improved DARC II autocleanse system for electrodes is your best choice. Consider your searching over!
*1) The Kangen Enagic SD501 water ionizer cleans for 20 seconds for each 10 gallons of use. It would take the Kangen Enagic water ionizer approximately 10 minutes of run time at 1 gpm water flow rate to produce 10 gallons. Therefore, 10 mins X 60 seconds = 600. The water ionizer plate cleaning ratio is then 600:20 or reduced is 30:1.
Peer Reviewed Articles on Alkaline Diet Benefits from Increasing Alkalinity in the Body
“Alkaline water produced by a water ionizer has become the most important advancement in health care since Sir Alexander Fleming’s discovery of penicillin.” — Dr. William Kelly, author, Cancer Cure.
Over the past decade, there has been a growing interest in alkaline diets and living an alkaline lifestyle. Part of this interest may involve drinking alkaline, ionized water from a water ionizer as a way to improve wellness, enhance performance, and prolong vitality. Alkaline, ionized water is water that has been selectively altered in a water ionizer to raise pH from neutral to pH 9 or more and also to display negative change (-ORP). Water above a pH 7 is alkaline and water below pH 7 is acidic. pH can be easily measured by using pH reagent or a meter, and ORP is measured using an ORP meter.
Life on earth depends on appropriate pH levels in and around living organisms and cells. Human life requires a tightly controlled pH level in the serum of about 7.4 (a slightly alkaline range of 7.35 to 7.45) to survive. The ability of the body to maintain this level of pH can be compromised by poor diet, lack of or excessive exercise, pollutants, dehydration, and stress. From available evidence, it would be prudent to consider the effects of alkaline water on the body and an alkaline diet to reduce morbidity and mortality from the chronic diseases that are plaguing our aging population.

Along with this interest in all things alkaline, there have also been some unsubstantiated health claims made. Such claims give rise to pseudo-sciences that undermine the significant body of peer-reviewed, published research into how altering alkaline (pH) levels can bring about health changes. Part of the issue in studying the beneficial effects of an alkaline diet is the lack of funding available for such research coupled with the complexity in trying to isolate what factors are creating change. Indeed, a few studies failed to find health changes from altering diet, although other studies acknowledge distinct benefits. Everyone agrees that more research is needed to further investigate alkaline health benefits.
Not only do AlkaViva water ionizers produce clean, alkaline water, but they can also create a significant amount of diatomic hydrogen (H2) in the water. The peer-reviewed benefits from drinking H2 water are NOT covered in this article.
Below are excerpts from peer-reviewed, ALKALINE diet/water studies along with references as to where the full articles can be found if you wish to study further. We welcome feedback.
Alkaline water Hydration for Athleets
It is the position of the American College of Sports Medicine that adequate fluid replacement helps maintain hydration and, therefore, promotes the health, safety, and optimal physical performance of individuals participating in regular physical activity.

Med Sci Sports Exerc. 1996 Jan;28(1):i-vii.
A significant difference in whole blood viscosity was detected in this study when assessing a high-pH, water versus an acceptable standard purified water during the recovery phase following strenuous exercise-induced dehydration.

After using an alkalizing supplement trained Nordic skiers experienced significant changes in cardiorespiratory, blood lactate, and upper body power output measures. Studies also indicate that drinking alkaline water can enhance the body’s buffering capacity and temper the acidity, thus improving performance. Daniel P Heil, Erik A Jacobson, and Stephanie M Howe, Influence of an alkalizing supplement on markers of endurance performance using a double-blind placebo-controlled design, J Int Soc Sports Nutr. 2012; 9: 8. Published online 2012 Mar 20. doi: 10.1186/1550-2783-9-8.
Supplementing with alkalizing minerals (calcium, magnesium, potassium) decreases cardio-respiratory stress and blood lactate responses, while improving power output in endurance athletes. Alkaline water may work similarly. Y. Kilkian, F. Engel. P. What, J. Master, Markers of Biological Stress, https://www.researchgate.net/publication/308012779.
Consumption of alkaline water was associated with improved acid-base balance (i.e., an alkalization of the blood and urine) and hydration status when consumed under free-living conditions. In contrast, subjects who consumed the placebo bottled water showed no changes over the same period of time. These results indicate that the habitual consumption of alkaline water may be a valuable nutritional vector for influencing both acid-base balance and hydration status in healthy adults. Also, over time, the mineral content of alkalized water could help active people retain more fluid in the cardiovascular system. This might improve overall hydration status and fluid reserves. D,. Heil, Acid-base balance and hydration status following consumption of mineral-based alkaline bottled water. Movement Science/Human Performance Laboratory, Montana State University.
The physiology of intense exercise that produces acidosis is far more complex than originally thought. In the transition to higher exercise intensity, proton release is even greater than lactate production which indicates acidosis is only partially related to production of “lactic acid.” Robergs, R. Exercise-induced metabolic acidosis: where do the protons come from? Sport Science 5(2) sportsci.org/jour/0102/rar.thm, 2001.
The Evolution of Diet
Estimates of the net systemic load of acid in ancestral pre-agricultural diets as compared to contemporary diets reflect a mismatch between the nutrient compositions of the diet and genetically determined nutritional requirements. The result is that contemporary diets generate diet-induced metabolic acidosis in contemporary Homo Sapiens.

Because of the increased incidence of obesity in our population, electrolyzed water at 2 liters/day for 2 months was given to four obese subjects. Statistical evaluation of the results of the present study suggests that electrolyzed water as used resulted in near significant weight loss and a significant loss of body fat in obese subjects.

Alkalinity/alkaline water and Muscles
As we age, there is a loss of muscle mass, which may predispose to falls and fractures. A three-year study looking at a diet rich in potassium, such as fruits and vegetables, as well as a reduced acid load, resulted in preservation of muscle mass in older men and women. Dawson-Hughes B, Harris SS, Ceglia L. Alkaline diets favor lean tissue mass in older adults. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. 2008;87(3):662–665.
Correction of acidosis may preserve muscle mass in conditions where muscle wasting is common such as diabetic ketosis, trauma, sepsis, chronic obstructive lung disease, and renal failure. Gerry K. Schwalfenberg, University of Alberta, The Alkaline Diet: Is There Evidence That an Alkaline pH Diet Benefits Health? Journal of Environmental and Public Health, Volume 2012 (2012), Article ID 727630.

Bone Loss prevention with alkaline water
The bone minerals that are wasted in the urine may not have complete compensation through intestinal absorption, which is thought to result in osteoporosis. An alkaline diet typically does improve the K/Na ratio and may benefit bone health, reduce muscle wasting, as well as mitigate other chronic diseases such as hypertension and strokes. It has been found increases in the alkali content of a diet, may attenuate bone loss in healthy older adults. G. K. Schwalfenberg, University of Alberta, Oct 2011. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3195546/-.
Dietary acid charge enhances bone loss. Bicarbonate or alkaline diet decreases bone resorption in humans. We compared the effect of an alkaline mineral water, rich in bicarbonate, with that of an acid one, on bone markers, in young women with a normal calcium intake. Wynn, E, MA Krieg, JM Aeschlimann, and P Burckhardt. Alkaline mineral water lowers bone resorption even in calcium sufficiency: alkaline mineral water and bone metabolism. Bone.

Excess dietary protein with high acid renal load may decrease bone density if not buffered by ingestion of supplements or foods (water) that are alkali rich. G. K. Schwalfenberg, 2012 https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3195546/.
This work shows that bone depletion is absolutely dependent on extracellular acidification; these cells are inactive at pH levels above about 7.3 and show maximum stimulation at a pH of about 6.9. Bone resorption is most sensitive to changes in H+ concentration at a pH of about 7.1 (which may be close to the interstitial pH in bone). In vivo, severe systemic acidosis (pH change of about -0.05 to -0.20) often results from renal disease; milder chronic acidosis (pH change of about -0.02 to -0.05) can be caused by excessive protein intake, acid feeding, prolonged exercise, ageing, airway diseases or menopause. Acidosis can also occur locally as a result of inflammation, infection, wounds, tumors or diabetic ischemia. Cell function, including that of osteoblasts, is normally impaired by acid; the unusual stimulatory effect of acid on osteoclasts may represent a primitive ‘fail-safe’ that evolved with terrestrial vertebrates to correct systemic acidosis by ensuring release of alkaline bone mineral when the lungs and kidneys are unable to remove sufficient H+ equivalent. The present results suggest that even subtle chronic acidosis could be sufficient to cause appreciable bone loss over time. Arnett T., Department of Anatomy and Developmental Biology, University College London, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14506899.
Humans generally consume a diet that generates metabolic acids leading to a reduction in the systemic bicarbonate and a fall of pH. Chronic metabolic acidosis alters bone cell function; there is an increase in osteoclastic bone resorption and a decrease in osteoblastic bone formation. As we age, we are less able to excrete metabolic acids due to the normal decline in renal function. Bushinski DA., Nephrology Unit, Strong Memorial Hospital, New York, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11842949.
Chronic metabolic acidosis is a process whereby an excess acid load is placed on the body due to excess acid generation or diminished acid removal by normal homeostatic mechanisms. Excessive meat ingestion and aging are two clinical conditions often associated with chronic metabolic acidosis. The body’s homeostatic response to this pathology is very efficient. Therefore, the blood pH is frequently maintained within the “normal” range. However, these homeostatic responses engender pathologic consequences such as nephrolithiasis, bone demineralization, muscle protein breakdown and renal growth. Alpern RJ1, Sakhaee K., Department of Internal Medicine, University of Texas, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9016905.
Excessive dietary intake of protein with consequent increase in metabolic acid production result in compensatory mechanisms that lead to progression of kidney stones, bone disease, renal disease and a catabolic state. Alpern, R. Trade-offs in the adaptation to acidosis, Kidney International 47: 1205-1215, 1995.
The acid load inherent in the Western diet results in mild chronic metabolic acidosis in association with a state of cortisol excess. An alkali balanced diet modulates bone resorption and the associated alterations in calcium and phosphate homeostasis. Maurer, M.; Riesen, W.; Muser, J.; Hulter, H. and Krapf, R. Neutralization of Western diet inhibits bone resportion independently of K intake and reduces cortisol secretion in humans, American Journal of Physiology and Renal Physiology 284: F32-40, 2003.
Osteoclast activity is modulated by small pH changes and is a key determinant of bone resorption in mouse calvarial cultures. Sajeda Meghji, Matthew S. Morrison, Brian Henderson, Timothy R. Arnett, pH Dependence of Bone Resorption American Journal of Physiology – Endocrinology and Metabolism Vol. 280 no. 1, E112-E119.
Alkaline Diet and Growth Hormones
It has long been known that severe forms of metabolic acidosis in children, such as renal tubular acidosis, are associated with low levels of growth hormone with resultant short stature. Correction of the acidosis increases growth hormone significantly and improved growth. Improving growth hormone levels may improve quality of life, reduce cardiovascular risk factors, improve body composition, and even improve memory and cognition. Wass JAH, Reddy R. Growth hormone and memory. Journal of Endocrinology. 2010;207(2):125–126.
Alkaline Minerals (in water) and Back Pain
There is some evidence that chronic low back pain improves with the supplementation of alkaline minerals. With supplementation there was a slight but significant increase in blood pH and intracellular magnesium. Ensuring that there is enough intracellular magnesium allows for the proper function of enzyme systems that improves back pain and also allows for activation of vitamin D. Gerry K. Schwalfenberg, The Alkaline Diet: Is There Evidence That an Alkaline pH Diet Benefits Health? J Environ Public Health. 2012; 2012: 727630.
Alkalinity/alkaline water and Chemotherapy
The effectiveness of chemotherapeutic agents is markedly influenced by pH. Numerous agents such as epirubicin and adriamycin require an alkaline media to be more effective. Cell death correlates with acidosis and intracellular pH shifts higher (more alkaline) after chemotherapy may reflect response to chemotherapy. It has been suggested that inducing metabolic alkalosis may be useful in enhancing some treatment regimes. Gerry K. Schwalfenberg, The Alkaline Diet: Is There Evidence That an Alkaline pH Diet Benefits Health? J Environ Public Health. 2012; 2012: 727630.
Alkalinity/alkaline water and Cancer
Diet-induced acidosis is a potential upstream and indirect trigger in a multifactorial cascade of molecular events associated with carcinogenesis. The American Institute for Cancer Research (AICR) comprehensive global report has compiled numerous studies demonstrating associations between dietary habits and cancer risk. The findings recommend increased or regular consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes, while discouraging excess consumption of sugary and energy-dense foods and drinks, red and processed meats, and salty processed foods. Ian Forrest Robey, University of Arizona, Examining the relationship between diet-induced acidosis and cancer, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3571898/.
Oral administration of pH buffers can reduce the development of spontaneous and experimental metastases in mice, and has been proposed in clinical trials. It is notable that cancer cells maintain a high level of glucose metabolism even in the presence of oxygen, which was first documented by Warburg more than 80 years ago. This is a consistent finding across a variety of cancers, and has been recognized as a “hallmark” of cancer. Maria de Lourdes C Ribeiro, Ariosto S. Silva, Kate M. Bailey, Nagi B. Kumar, Thomas A. Sellers, Robert A. Gatenby, Arig Ibrahim-Hashim, and Robert J. Gillies, Buffer Therapy for Cancer, https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3872072/.
A significant consequence of increased glucose metabolism is the production of acids, such as lactic acid, which can be an independent negative prognostic factor for cancer outcome. Prior mathematical models and empirical studies have shown that solid tumors export acid into the surrounding parenchyma. This is consistent with measurements of tumor pH in mouse models, which have shown that the extracellular pH of solid tumors is acidic. Combined, these observations have led to the generation of the “Acid Mediated Tumor Invasion” hypothesis, which proposes that fast-growing tumors export acid to surrounding stroma, and that reduced pH contributes to the tissue remodeling required for tumor invasion.

Alkalinity/alkaline water and Effects on Aging
Changes in renal physiology and function with aging put the elderly patient at risk for adverse effect of drug therapies due to the incidence of common problems like metabolic acidosis. Lonergan, E. Aging and the kidney: adjusting treatment to physiologic change, Geriatrics 43: 27-30, 32-33, 1998.
Authors examined peer-reviewed literature to determine whether systemic acid-base equilibrium changes with aging in normal adults humans. Using linear regression analysis, they found that with increasing age, there is a significant increase in the steady-state blood H+ indicating a progressively worsening low-level metabolic acidosis in what may reflect, in part, the normal decline of renal function with increasing age. Frassetto, L. and Sebastian, A. Age and systemic acid-base equilibrium: analysis of published data, Journal of Gerontology, Advanced Biological Science and Medical Science, 51: B91-99, 1996.
Dietary changes over the last two centuries have resulted in a mismatch between genetically-determined nutritional requirements in humans. Excess sodium chloride, a deficiency of potassium and excess dietary acids that are not mediated by dietary bicarbonates lead to chronic low-grade metabolic acidosis that amplifies the age-related pathophysiological consequences in humans (such as loss of bone substance, increase in urinary calcium, disturbance in nitrogen metabolism, and low levels of growth hormone). Frassetto, L.; Morris, R.; Sellmeyer, D.; Todd, K. and Sebastian, A. Diet, evolution and aging: the pathophysiologic effects of the post-agricultural inversion of the potassium-to-sodium and base-to-chloride ratios in the human diet, European Journal of Nutrition 40:5 200-213, 2001.
Otherwise healthy adults manifest a low-grade, diet-dependent metabolic acidosis, the severity of which increases with age at constant rate described by an index of endogenous acid production, apparently due in part, to the normal age-related decline of renal function. Frassetto, L.; Morris, R. and Sebastian, A. Effect of age on blood acid-base composition in adult humans: role of age-related renal functional decline, American Journal of Physiology, 271: 1114-22, 1996.
Age-induced decline in renal functions explains, at least in part, clinically important age-related conditions including metabolic acidosis. Krapt, R. and Jehle, A. Renal function and renal disease in the elderly, Schweizerische Medizinische Wochenschrift, 130:11 398-408 2000.
Acid-base homeostasis exerts a major influence on protein function, thereby critically affecting tissue and organ performance. Deviations in body acidity can have adverse consequences and when severe, can be life-threatening. Adrogue, H. and Madias, N. Management of life-threatening acid-base disorders, New England Journal of Medicine 338: 26-34, 1998.
Decline in the ability to adjust acid-base balance is a feature of aging. Regulation of pH ultimately depends on the kidneys and lungs, however, the ability of these organs is decreased with physiological aging. Renal insufficiency and/or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and various drugs, such as diuretics, often affect the acid-base balance in the elderly. Nabata, T.; Morimoto, S. and Ogihara, T. Abnormalities in acid-base balance in the elderly, Nippon Rinsho 50: 2249-53, 1992.
AlkaViva UltraWater is alkaline and ionized making it rich in naturally occurring beneficial minerals like calcium and magnesium that help you alkalize and maintain a HEALTHY PH BALANCE.
Alkaline ionized Water and Free Radicals
Active oxygen species or free radicals are considered to cause extensive oxidative damage to biological macromolecules. The ideal scavenger for active oxygen should be “active hydrogen”. “Active diatomic hydrogen” can be produced in reduced (alkaline) water near the cathode during electrolysis of water. Reduced (alkaline) water exhibits high pH, low dissolved oxygen (DO), extremely high dissolved molecular hydrogen (H2), and extremely negative redox potential (-ORP) values. Reduced water suppresses single-strand breakage of DNA b active oxygen species suggesting that reduced water can scavenge different types of free radicals. Shirahata S, Kabayama S, Nakano M, Miura T, Kusumoto K, Gotoh M, Hayashi H, Otsubo K, Morisawa S, Katakura Y., EmoryElectrolyzed-reduced water scavenges active oxygen species and protects DNA from oxidative damage, Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 1997 May 8;234(1):269-74.
ionized water Benefits backed by research.
Over 600 PEER-REVIEWED STUDIES show that molecular hydrogen – or H2 -water / alkaline ionized water has a therapeutic benefit in every organ of the human body and positively affects over 150 disease models and health conditions.
Get your antioxidants – in your water!
Free radical damage causes oxidative stress and is one of the primary causes of aging. Oxidation causes iron or apples to “rust”. Antioxidants prevent or slow that damage. Unfortunately, anti-oxidants are non-selective neutralizing both beneficial and harmful radicals. The molecular hydrogen H2 in UltraWater selectively targets only the damaging radicals – making it the “ULTIMATE” ANTIOXIDANT.
Drink more. Improve your health.
When molecular hydrogen H2 neutralizes damaging oxygen radicals, it creates water (H2O) – increasing your CELLULAR HYDRATION.Great tasting, silky-smooth, alkaline UltraWater is also easier to drink. When you drink more, you enjoy optimal hydration and better health.
Ease your aches and pains.
Oxidative stress damages your cells, causing pain and inflammation. As we age, inflammation increases. Studies show that H₂ neutralizes the damaging radicals. Drinking UltraWater can ease chronic and acute aches and pain.
Go longer. Go stronger.
ATP powers your cells. It is the source of your energy. Research shows molecular hydrogen(water) H₂ helps INCREASE ATP PRODUCTION giving you more energy while decreasing lactic acid levels. Athlete? Exerciser? Just want more pep? UltraWater helps improve performance and recovery.
Plant-based antioxidants compared to molecular hydrogen antioxidant
Due to the fact that molecular hydrogen and plant based antioxidants are different things yet they are both antioxidants we could start by saing molecular hydrogen and plant based antioxidants are complementary – dont ever think that consuming an amount of molecular hydrogen is equivalent to consuming a certain amount of antioxidants from natural foods like fruits and vegetables and nuts and other antioxidant rich foods.
Antioxidants in foods are essential nutrients,1 like vitamin C.2 This antioxidant does more than just neutralize free radicals3, but also plays an important role in areas like collagen synthesis4 , cell respiration/ oxygenation(aka respiratory vitamin), fighting viruses ad other important roles .
an example of oxidation neutralization : compare Vitamin’s C antioxidative power with the antioxidative power of molecular hydrogen ?
Based on stoichiometry, one molecule of vitamin C can theoretically neutralize two free radicals, which is the same for molecular hydrogen.5
However, some of the used vitamin C molecules can be rejuvenated by the body and can be used again6, which is not the case with molecular hydrogen wich is a gaz. On the other hand, molecular hydrogen can upregulate powerful antioxidant enzymes in the body,7 thus providing further protection,8 which vitamin C cannot do. Interestingly, vitamin C intake at high levels may actually prevent this upregulation from occurring.9
Similarities between plant based antioxidants and molecular hydrogen?
plant based antioxidants and molecular hydrogenare both natural to the body.10 (neither artificial nor synthetic)
plant based antioxidants and molecular hydrogen are both potential keys to longevity.11 and promote health and wellness.
Differences between plant based antioxidants and molecular hydrogen?
Molecular hydrogen only scavenges the bad free radicals.12
Molecular hydrogen leaves no waste product after neutralizing a free radical.
Molecular hydrogen also increases our body’s own antioxidant systems.7
Molecular hydrogen also acts as a signaling molecule, thus having many other benefits.13
Molecular hydrogen is the smallest molecule, and can easily enter the cells.14 (Note: H2 only weighs 2 g/mole vs. vitamin C at 176.2 g/mol).5
Molecular hydrogen has no known toxic effects, even at high intakes.15
Molecular hydrogen is easily consumed with no additional calories.
Molecular hydrogen doesn’t replace antioxidants contained in natural foods, but truly works in conjunction with them as well as offers additional benefits.

Even when molecular hydrogen is in the air, it is only flammable above a 4.6% concentration by volume, which is not a concern when talking about molecular hydrogen water.
Doesn’t water H2O already have hydrogen in it ?
The water molecule has 2 hydrogen atoms, chemically bound to the oxygen atom. This is different from the molecular hydrogen gas (H2), which is just two hydrogen atoms bound only to each other.The H2 -hydrogen molecules are not tied up to water H2O
In order for the dissolved molecular hydrogen gas (H2) to beneficial for humans, it must be in an unbound form, and therefore available for therapeutic benefit.
I thought that if water “rich in hydrogen ”, it must be acidic?
If the water is rich in positive hydrogen ions (H+). then YES, water is acidic(pH<7).
But when talking about molecular hydrogen rich water of , we’re talking about neutral (ph=7) hydrogen gas (H2), which is two hydrogen atoms tied together – hydrogen in its diatomic molecular form.
It can be confusing to hear “hydrogen water” because we usually think of hydrogen (meaning the hydrogen ion, H+) as acidic, and that is basically the definition of pH. The p stands for potential or power, meaning a mathematical exponent (in this case a logarithmic function), and the H stands for the hydrogen ion, which is just a proton and no electron. So pH literally means the logarithmic concentration of the hydrogen ion.
But when we say “molecular hydrogen rich water” we are referring to diatomic hydrogen or molecular hydrogen, which is a neutral(ph=7) gas of H2 molecules (one H2 ismade of 2 atoms of hydrogen bond into a molecule), that is dissolved in the water.
I read that if you add hydrogen to water, then it makes hydrogen peroxide?
Molecular hydrogen (H2) gas does NOT bond to NOR react with the water molecules, it just dissolves into the water. Thus it does not create some novel molecule like H4O, which would in fact be chemically impossible to form. Water has the chemical formula H2O, and hydrogen peroxide has the chemical formula H2O2, which by comparison contains an extra oxygen, not hydrogen.
Molecular hydrogen water and hydrogen peroxide are completely different.
Since molecular hydrogen gas doesn’t dissolve very well in water, how can there even be enough for it to be beneficial?
Won’t any dissolved molecular hydrogen gas immediately evaporate out of the water?
Yes, molecular hydrogen as any gas does immediately start coming /evaporate out of the water, but it doesn’t just vanish immediately. Depending on the surface area, agitation, etc., the molecular hydrogen gas can stay in the water for a few hours or longer before it drops below a therapeutic level.
How much molecular hydrogen water should I drink to get the benefits?
That is the same question scientists are asking and is still under investigation. However, the human studies generally provide about 1-3 mg of molecular hydrogen H2, and these doses show statistically significant benefits. So, if your molecular hydrogen water has a concentration of 1 mg/L (equivalent to 1 ppm, parts per million), then 2 liters of molecular hydrogen water will give you 2 mg of H2. Although the effective concentration for some people and some diseases may be lower and/or higher, these doses are simply what have been seen to expert benefits. (see this article also).
Does more molecular hydrogen equal more benefits?
Maybe, maybe not…. there is obviously a minimum required amount of molecular hydrogen (water )needed to offer any health benefits, which may vary from person to person. Importantly, it appears that you cannot get too much molecular hydrogen, as it doesn’t build up in your body—you just exhale it out. In many cases there is a clear dose-dependent effect, meaning the more molecular hydrogen (water) the better or greater the effect. There are also many anecdotal reports that suggest that consuming more molecular hydrogen (water) may offer even more benefits. But more research needs to be done in this area.
Is molecular hydrogen (water) safe (for consumption)?
YES. Molecular Hydrogen gas (in water) has been shown to be very safe at concentrations hundreds of times higher than what is being used for therapy. Here are a few examples:
Molecular Hydrogen’s safety was first shown in the late 1800s, where molecular hydrogen gas was used to locate gunshot wounds in the intestines. The reports showed that there were never any toxic effects or irritation to even the most sensitive tissues.
Another good example of its safety is that molecular hydrogen gas has been used in deep sea diving since 1943 (at very high concentrations) to prevent decompression sickness. Studies have shown no toxic effects from molecular hydrogen when at very high levels and pressures of 98.87% H2 and 1.26% O2 at 19.1 atm.
Furthermore, molecular hydrogen gas is natural to the body because after a fiber-rich meal, our gut bacteria can produce liters of molecular hydrogen on a daily basis (which is yet another benefit from eating fruits and vegetables).
In short, molecular hydrogen gas is very natural to our bodies, not like a foreign or alien substance that can only be synthesized in a chemistry lab.
When was molecular hydrogen’s therapeutic benefits first discovered?
The earliest account of molecular hydrogen gas having medicinal properties was in 1798, for things like inflammation. But, it didn’t become a popular topic among scientists until 2007, when an article about the benefits of molecular hydrogen was published in the prestigious journal of Nature Medicine by Dr. Ohta’s group.
Molecular Hydrogen (water) is a single natural way to reduce pain and inflammation, to improve your energy, cognitive function, exercise performance and recovery ,to neutralize harmful free radicals and support your body’s enzyme and antioxidant production & to also hydrate your cells plus generally support your overall health and wellness. Scientists have discovered that molecular hydrogen H2 water – molecular hydrogen or diatomic hydrogen water – has all of these properties and more. molecular hydrogen H2 (water) has become a major area of scientific research.
The Healing Property In Healing Waters
Around the world there are well-known natural molecular hydrogen rich water sources or springs that offer healing or curative properties. Scientists have recently found H2 in samples analyzed from Nordenau (Germany), Tlacote (Mexico) and Hita Tenryosui, Japan1-3. The existence of molecular hydrogen H2 in these water springs (and others) could be a result of water reacting with alkali-earth metals, or from molecular hydrogen gas-producing bacteria and algae4. Regardless, the available science regarding molecular hydrogen H2 and its benefits seems to explain these H2 waters healing properties.
What is Molecular Hydrogen water?
Molecular Hydrogen water is water that has molecular hydrogen H2 gas in it.Hydrogen is the lightest and simplest element appearing first on the Periodic Table of Elements. Molecular hydrogen is also the smallest molecule consisting of just one electron and one proton. Because of its tiny size, it is able to permeate even sub-cellular structures such as the mitochondria making it extremely bioavailable. It even crosses the blood-brain barrier. It is colorless, odorless, non-metallic, non-toxic and tasteless.
Molecular Hydrogen water Research
The body of science regarding health benefits of molecular hydrogen H2 (water) has advanced rapidly in recent years thanks to the studies done by research scientists around the globe. Over 600 peer-reviewed articles have been published on the impact of molecular hydrogen H2 on humans, animals, and individual cells. It shows that molecular hydrogen H2 (water) regulates over 200 biomolecules and appears to provide benefit in 166 health conditions and disease models, affecting virtually every organ in the human body. Molecular hydrogen H2 operates on human metabolism in three primary areas:
• Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) rapidly and easily converts toxic free (hydroxyl OH-) radicals to water (H2 + 2 OH – > 2 H2O); • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) maintains antioxidant homeostasis. In other words, the body’s own antioxidants are leveraged and maintained; and • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) supports cell signaling, cell metabolism, and gene expression. This impacts inflammation, obesity, and aging mechanisms.
Molecular Hydrogen water is Safe And Natural.
Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) is not foreign to the body like a pharmaceutical drug. Your body produces small amounts of Molecular hydrogen H2 gas from the bacteria in your digestive tract as it digests vegetable fibers, which diffuse into the bloodstream. Research shows that delivering H2 in higher concentrations than your body can produce is much more effective. In fact, drinking hydrogen water was used in most of the studies and is the most effective way to deliver Molecular hydrogen ‘s powerful benefits.
Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) science is moving quickly beyond theory to practical applications.
Hydrogen water ionizers and generators allow medical professionals and consumers to leverage the health benefits of Molecular hydrogen H2 water. “The effects have been reported in essentially all organs covering 31 disease categories that can be subdivided into 166 disease models, human diseases, treatment-associated pathologies, and pathophysiological conditions of plants with a predominance of oxidative stress-mediated diseases and inflammatory diseases.” Medical Gas Research 2015; 5:12
Benefits of Molecular Hydrogen water
“It is not an overestimate to say that hydrogen water’s’ impact on therapeutic and preventative medicine could be enormous in the future.”
Free Radical Research 2010
Why Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) is a Superlative Antioxidant
Chronic oxidative stress has been identified as one of the major causes of aging and modern chronic diseases. Everyone knows that there are many antioxidants available. However, they have shown only limited success in therapeutic trials.
Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) has some distinct advantages, causing researchers to propose it as a NOVEL antioxidant with superior therapeutic and preventive applications.
• Molecular hydrogen H2 is the smallest molecule. Other antioxidants such as Vitamin C or Vitamin E are very large by comparison. They must also be digested, absorbed, transported and finally taken up by the cells.
Molecular hydrogen H2 penetrates the stomach lining quickly and acts inside the cells immediately. It’s able to get into every part of the cell more quickly protecting DNA, RNA, and proteins against damaging oxidative stress. • Each molecule of molecular hydrogen H2 neutralizes two free radicals. It easily separates into two slightly charged atoms that neutralize the free radicals created from our daily oxidative stress. In the process, it creates water thus hydrating the cells. • Molecular hydrogen H2 is selective and targets only “bad” free radicals. Oxygen radicals are extremely damaging. However, your body also produces “good” free radicals, which serve useful purposes. Other antioxidants only partially neutralize radicals, both the good and bad ones. Worse, these antioxidants can then become free radicals themselves once they’ve done their job. H2 selectively goes after only the bad radicals and unlike other antioxidants, neutralizes them completely.
Molecular hydrogen (water) – The Best Anti-Aging Supplement?
Our modern lifestyle has greatly increased the oxidative stress on our body, leading to alarmingly increased rates of chronic disease and poor health. As a culture, we are out of balance and aging and we lack something to naturally and universally address the decline that comes with aging. The science is clear: Molecular hydrogen water is a powerful and effective foundation for better health, wellness, and slowing the aging process.
• Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) reduces inflammation and pain. As we age, we ache more. Molecular hydrogen H2 has been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory. Molecular hydrogen is also can potentially modify the switched on genes that create a constant state inflammation. • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) supports optimal cognitive function. The brain is 2-4% of your body’s weight but consumes 20-40% of the oxygen you breathe. Since 2-5% of the oxygen you breathe turns into free radicals, your brain is highly susceptible to oxidative stress damage. molecular hydrogen H2 (water) neutralizes excess free radicals that occur in the brain. • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) promotes cellular health. Research shows Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) alters cell signaling, cell metabolism, and gene expression. This may explain its anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, and anti-apoptotic (or anti-cell death) effects. • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) activates production of your own antioxidant levels. Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) triggers activation of antioxidant enzymes in the body (e.g., glutathione peroxidase, super-oxide dismutase, catalase, etc.) and/or proteins that protect the cell. Each one of these enzymes takes care of different kinds of free radicals, and they work together to keep the cells healthy.
Exerciser or Athlete , molecular hydrogen Water is Your Secret Weapon!!!
Athletes and people who exercise experience more oxidative stress than sedentary individuals. They are also more vulnerable to the effects of chronic dehydration.
• Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) helps Improve Energy Levels. Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is the fuel that powers your cells during physical activity. Research shows molecular hydrogen H2 increases ATP production, helping you maintain high energy and better performance. • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) Improves Performance and Recovery Time. When you exercise, your lactic acid increases, leading to fatigue, muscle damage, decreased endurance, reduced performance, and poor results. Peer-reviewed research on athletes shows that Molecular hydrogen H2 water decreases lactic acid levels leading to better performance and faster recovery. • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water ) Reduces Oxidative Stress. When we exercise we use more oxygen generating more damaging oxygen radicals leading to increased oxidative stress. Molecular hydrogen H2 easily enters sub-cellular compartments helping to protect them from damaging cytotoxic oxygen radicals. • Molecular hydrogen H2 (water) Improves Your Hydration. When hydrogen H2 molecules combine with and neutralize damaging oxygen radicals, they are transformed into water (H2O) – increasing your cellular hydration. Molecular hydrogen H2 infused alkaline ionized water is also better absorbed by the body than regular tap water.
To summarize, whether at work or play, old or young, healthy or unhealthy, molecular hydrogen water offers everyone a wide range of powerful benefits. Most supplements have one mechanism of action; molecular hydrogen water (and H2 tablets) offers many. It has a very solid and growing body of science to back up molecular hydrogen water’s therapeutic benefits. So if you’re interested in optimizing your health and well-being, enjoying more energy and better mental clarity and improving your athletic performance, then what are you waiting for? Give your body the ability to thrive naturally. Join the molecular hydrogen water revolution. Do what got results in the research and drink hydrogen water. H2 infused UltraWater from AlkaViva is the perfect, easy and convenient way to get the cleanest and healthiest molecular hydrogen water.

Any activity or training above a resting state immediately increases our body’s needs for energy and oxygen to power the activity. Any activity that is more intense than what your body is used to, stresses your system causing a cascade of effects.
The increased oxygen produces more cell damaging oxygen (free) radicals, which cause oxidative stress. Oxidative stress silently attacks your cells behind the scenes leading to loss of cell viability and cell death, causing muscle damage, weakness, fatigue and inflammation.1-3 This is especially true with exercise induced oxidative stress.
If your activity is intense enough, you will use up available ATP for energy and your body will burn glycogen. When that happens you will feel the burn from lactic acid build up, which leads to fatigue and possible muscle soreness. All of this leads to decreased endurance, reduced performance, poor results and less enjoyment.
Molecular Hydrogen Rich Water Increases Your Energy
ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) is the energy currency for all the activities of your body. The food we eat and oxygen we breathe create ATP in the mitochondria, powering each of our cells and our activity.
However, free radicals are also produced every minute from the oxygen we breathe. It’s simply a fact of aerobic metabolism. Free radicals – especially oxygen radicals – damage your mitochondria. When damaged mitochondria cannot produce the necessary levels of ATP, the body turns to metabolizing stored glycogen. Glycogen stores are found mostly in the liver where they are accessed and used for energy.
A growing body of research shows many health benefits of molecular hydrogen rich water, including improved mitochondrial function, increases ATP production and potentially induces mitochondrial biogenesis.4 Molecular hydrogen H2 is the smallest molecule in the universe and so rapidly diffuses through our cell membranes, and neutralizes the damaging free radicals. Molecular’s hydrogen protective properties allow the mitochondria to produce optimal levels of ATP, providing you with more energy. When you have to dig deep and go beyond your ATP production, as we all sometimes do during activity or training, research has shown that molecular hydrogen H2 can support an increase of glycogen stored in your liver.4
The research is in. Drinking molecular hydrogen water shows many increased health benefits including improved energy through improved ATP production while increased glycogen stores help decrease fatigue and muscle damage. Go longer. Go stronger.
Molecular Hydrogen Water Reduces Lactic Acid Buildup
Anytime your body starts burning stored glycogen you start to produce lactic acid. Increased lactic acid buildup in turn leads to greater fatigue, muscle soreness and slower recovery. Exercise-induced metabolic acidosis is common among some highly active individuals and many highly trained athletes. It’s another silent, behind the scenes effect; if you have acidosis you don’t know it, except by seeing and feeling that you are not performing at your best.
One recent study found another health benefit of molecular hydrogen rich water is that it can positively impact athletic performance in elite athletes. Both muscle fatigue and lactate (levels of lactic acid in the blood) were decreased in the control group of elite, highly trained athletes when they consumed molecular hydrogen H2 rich water before undergoing intensive exercise controlled by strict test protocols.5
A similar study found that molecular hydrogen water had a beneficial effect on the maximal rate of perceived exertion and lactic acid build-up at critical running speed during maximal exercise. While the exact mechanism was not identified, the study concluded “… that hydrogen-rich water decreases the physical stress during maximal exercise…”.6
A quote from one of the multiple research papers on this topic says it succinctly: “Adequate hydration with hydrogen-rich water pre-exercise reduced blood lactate levels and improved exercise-induced decline of muscle function.”
Kosuke Aoki, et al Medical Gas Research, 2012
Please note that as molecular hydrogen water is also produced by a water ionizer when the water ionizer produces alkaline ionized water ; as lactic acid is (as the name states) an acid, you can drink alkaline ionized water (AKW) or ERW(Electrolisys Reduced Water) wich also contains molecular hydrogen to get rid of/neutralize that lactic acid buildu and recover faster.read more benefits of alkaline ionized water & more about molecular hydrogen water

Molecular Hydrogen Water Protects Against Oxidative Stress
Being a powerful antioxidant this sounds right , Any increase in activity results in an increased level of oxidative stress. Unusual or intense physical activity over a short period of time causes higher levels of oxidative stress and lactic acid buildup (exercise-induced metabolic acidosis). This causes the symptoms of overtraining such as increased fatigue, residual muscle soreness, micro-tears to the muscle fibers, and inflammation. Oxidative stress in any form, and no matter how you got there, is not good.
Scientists have known for a long time that one health benefit of molecular hydrogen H2 is that it readily neutralizes free radicals, specifically the hydroxyl radical (*OH–) and oxide radical ion (0+).7-9 Especially important is that molecular hydrogen H2 appears to selectively target the hydroxyl radical which is the most toxic to the cells. Other free radicals (e.g. nitric oxide radical) are actually important to cell physiology and homeostasis.7,8 Unlike other “non-selective” antioxidants,molecular hydrogen H2 leaves these good radicals unchanged, making it a superlative antioxidant.
Molecular Hydrogen H2 water Improves Recovery Time and Healing
Studies have found molecular hydrogen rich water to be beneficial in treating injuries and conditions related to oxidative stress and inflammation, and in treating soft tissue sports injuries.10
Molecular Hydrogen water has been shown to help maintain homeostasis of enzymes including glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase and others.4
Molecular Hydrogen H2 ( water ) has also demonstrated cell signaling capability critical to the brain and neurological function.4,13
These properties make molecular hydrogen water far more beneficial to your health than a simple recovery drink focused only on repairing muscles.
Molecular Hydrogen Water Improves Your Hydration
As H2 Hydrogen molecules neutralize the hydroxyl radical and oxygen radicals, the only thing that is left inside of the cell from this reaction is water, leading researchers to deduce that H2 also improves cellular hydration. This also explains why no published study has found any negative effect of consuming hydrogen water.
The molecular hydrogen H2 water Solution
molecular hydrogen H2 water is safe.
molecular hydrogen H2 water is 100% natural. Research shows hydrogen water directly addresses so many of the issues we face in having more enjoyment, success and results in our activities, fitness and athletics. And it is effective for a broad range of conditions related to oxidative stress – far beyond those caused by our activities or fitness efforts. In fact, the majority of research on molecular hydrogen H2 has been focused on chronic disease conditions caused by oxidation.
Studies show hydrogen rich water has many health benefits for a number of conditions that are related to oxidation, like metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and even side effects of cancer treatment.11,12 It’s also readily accessible and affordable.

Molecular hydrogen water overview-definiton, benefits, research , studies ,safety
molecular hydrogen water might sound new but it is not .
What is molecular hydrogen rich water ?molecular hydrogen water or molecular hydrogen -rich water is water enriched or infused with dissolved molecular hydrogen gas (molecular hydrogen H2 NOT the H2 linked to O), also known as molecular hydrogen. 2 This means that hydrogen molecules or nano bubbles of molecular hydrogen are dissolved in the water, but do not actually bond with any of the H20 water molecules . another example are carbonated drinks are enriched with CO2 (carbon dioxide gas) which gives these drinks their fizzy characteristic.
So we have a gas made of 2 molecules of hydrogen in the water. Please note that alkaline ionize water also has more or less molecular hydrogen H2 gas in it so Alkaline Ionized Water or Electrolysis Reduced Water is also Molecular Hydrogen Water
What is hydrogen gas?
Hydrogen gas is made up of two hydrogen atoms that are covalently bonded (2 atoms of hydrogen that share common electrons). This gas has a neutral charge and is the smallest and lightest gas in the universe. 6 These qualities make hydrogen gas extremely unique because it means molecular hydrogen H2 can get anywhere it wants to in your body, including passing the blood-brain barrier, and into subcellular compartments such as the mitochondria of your cells. Molecular hydrogen is also known as a therapeutic medical gas with amazing medical potential in the scientific literature. 7
Is molecular hydrogen-rich water beneficial?
OF COURSE!!! Molecular hydrogen(water) has been demonstrated to be therapeutic in more than 600 scientific studies for more than 170 human disease models. 8 This means molecular hydrogen (water) has the therapeutic potential to help the vast majority of individuals today. Molecular hydrogen(water) has the potential to help the person dealing with seasonal allergies and to the person facing cancer. 9 Molecular hydrogen is one of the newest and simplest ways an individual can take preventative measures in their health.
Here are some examples of scientific studies refferring to molecular hydrogen) : In 1975, an impressive study demonstrated that hyperbaric molecular hydrogen therapy could be a possible treatment for cancer. In this study, the researchers showed that exposing mice with skin cancer (tumors) to 2.5 percent oxygen (O2) and 97.5 molecular hydrogen (H2) for two weeks produced a dramatic and significant regression of the mice tumors. Here is a quote from the study:
“After a first 10-day period of exposure of the mice to the hydrogen-oxygen therapy it was found qualitatively (i) that the tumors had turned black, (ii) that some had dropped off, (iii) that some seemed to have shrunk at their base and to be in the process of being ‘pinched off,’ and (iv) that the mice appeared to suffer no deleterious consequences.”5
In 2007 when a groundbreaking study demonstrated that molecular hydrogen is a selective antioxidant that neutralizes only the cytotoxic free radicals. The study was published in the prestigious Journal of Nature Medicine.6 The study showed that molecular hydrogen neutralizes the hydroxyl radical (OH*), the most cytotoxic free radical in existence, one that the human body has no natural defenses against, and converts it into water.
Since 2007, medical research on molecular hydrogen has exploded proving this gas has remarkable medical potential.
Research studies and reviews about molecular hydrogen water
The evolution of molecular hydrogen (water): a noteworthy potential therapy with clinical significance
“Hydrogen has marked therapeutic potential to help with the top 8 fatality-causing diseases listed by the CDC.” 7
Molecular hydrogen: a therapeutic antioxidant and beyond
“Overall, the impact of molecular hydrogen in medicine is extraordinary. The non-toxic and rapid intracellular diffusion features of this biological gas ensure the feasibility and readiness for its clinical translation.”8
Molecular hydrogen as a novel antioxidant: Overview of the advantages of hydrogen for medical applications
“Recent publications revealed that, in addition to the direct neutralization of highly reactive oxidants, molecular hydrogen H2 indirectly reduces oxidative stress by regulating the expression of various genes. Moreover, by regulating gene expression, molecular hydrogen H2 functions as an anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, and antiapoptotic molecule, and stimulates energy metabolism. In addition to growing evidence obtained by model animal experiments, extensive clinical examinations were performed or are under way. Since most drugs act on their specific targets,molecular hydrogen H2 seems to differ from conventional pharmaceutical drugs. Owing to its great efficacy and lack of adverse effects, molecular hydrogen H2 has potential for clinical applications for many diseases.”9
Molecular hydrogen appears to be a selective antioxidant. Molecular hydrogen appears to also reduce a powerful oxidant, Peroxynitrite (ONOO-). This would mean that Molecular Hydrogen has the potential to protect our DNA/RNA and proteins from damage (oxidative stress). Importantly, it does this while not perturbing cellular homeostasis;molecular hydrogen H2 does not neutralize beneficial free radicals (NO, H2O2, etc) necessary for the body to function properly.
Molecular hydrogen appears to stimulate the production of endogenous antioxidants via the Nrf2 Pathway, meaning it up-regulates the body’s own antioxidant system. This results in the production of more protective enzymes (antioxidants) such as glutathione, catalase, and superoxide dismutase. These antioxidants are powerful and aid in the reduction of excessive ROS and oxidative-stress within the body, which have been linked to nearly all human diseases.11.5
Molecular hydrogen is a signaling molecule/gene regulator 12
Molecular hydrogen appears to be a novel signaling molecule that participates in gene expression, cell modulation, and protein regulation. This means molecular hydrogen H2 can alter cellular signaling pathways resulting in benefits far beyond its antioxidant function. Research has demonstrated that molecular hydrogen can regulate inflammatory cytokines, hormones, proteins, and much more. Because of these properties, molecular hydrogen has the potential to give anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, anti-cell death effects.
This is a short list of the potential therapeutic benefits for the human body that have been associated with molecular hydrogen H2 research:
Based on scientific studies/evidence, molecular hydrogen gas ( water )therapy has the potential to benefit:
Alzheimer’s 37, arthritis 38, rheumatoid arthritis 39, Type 1 diabetes 40, Type 2 diabetes 41, Parkinson’s 42, COPD 43, asthma 44, heart disease 45, kidney disease 46, stroke 47, cancer 48, tumors 49, ALS 50, dementia 51, psoriasis 52, dermatitis 53, IBS 54, hemorrhagic shock 55, Crohn’s 56, fatty liver disease 57, liver cirrhosis 58, pancreatitis 59, cardiac arrest 60, neuropathy 61, Multiple Sclerosis 62, Hepatitis B 63, atherosclerosis 64, cataracts 65, hypertension 66, gum disease 67, traumatic brain injury 68, sepsis 69, subarachnoid hemorrhage (aneurysms) 70, infant lung disease 71, metabolic syndrome 72, lymphoma 73, retinitis 74, painful bladder syndrome 75, osteosclerosis 76, osteoarthritis 77, osteoporosis 78, glaucoma 79, pulmonary hypertension 80, pulmonary fibrosis 81, autism 82, depression 83, bipolar disorder 84, anxiety 85, schizophrenia 86, inflammation 87, muscle fatigue 88, increased ATP production 89, soft tissue injuries 90, pain 91, wounds 92, burns 93, seasonal allergies 94, autoimmune disorders 95, insulin resistance 96, hearing loss 97, ulcers 98, radiation damage 99, sleep apnea 100, to name just a few as there are studies on over 170 human disease models
Who can drink molecular hydrogen water?
One of the best parts about molecular hydrogen water is that it has been shown to have a tremendous safety profile. This has been demonstrated in a few ways:
Out of 600-plus scientific studies, molecular hydrogen H2 has shown no cytotoxic effects or cytotoxic by-products in the human body. 22
We have a basal level of molecular hydrogen H2 in our blood stream at all times, around 1~5 micromolar or less. 23
Humans can produce up to 10 liters of molecular hydrogen H2 a day with a good diet containing fruits, vegetables, and fiber-rich foods. This is due to the production of molecular hydrogen H2 by our gut flora (gut bacteria). 24
Another reason we know molecular hydrogen H2 is safe is because it has been used to ameliorate decompression sickness in deep sea diving since 1945. 25 The molecular hydrogen H2 concentration has been as high 98.87 percent molecular hydrogen H2 and 1.26 percent of O2, at 19.1 atm with minimal to no adverse or cytotoxic effects. 26 The United States military also has been using molecular hydrogen H2 for deep sea diving since the 60s. 27 Molecular hydrogen has been demonstrated to be extremely safe for the human body. 28
This information tells us that molecular hydrogen-rich water is safe for consumption in all age groups, from children to adults, as a preventive beverage that has the potential to reduce oxidative stress and so much more. Everyone, including children, is exposed to oxidative stress, which has been linked to the pathogenesis of nearly all disease conditions, including cancer. 29 Consuming water infused with molecular hydrogen is exactly what our society needs to aid in the battle against degenerative diseases.
Please note that most studies and research with molecular hydrogen gas were performed using molecular hydrogen rich water
molecular hydrogen water – therapeutic effects and advantages against cancer
We’ll examine some research and bring to light the possible therapeutic effects and advantages biatomic molecular hydrogen water has demonstrated in scientific studies to have against cancer.
Promising anticancer effects
Molecular hydrogen (biatomic – H2)is a new medical gas that can be dissolved in water and administered orally, by inhalation, baths, intravenous drip (IV), etc. 5 Molecular hydrogen water through these administration methods has more than 600 studies, showing therapeutic benefits in more than 170 human disease models, and it is still in its infancy. 6 That being said, molecular hydrogen water is off to an extraordinary start! Based on scientific research, molecular hydrogen water appears to have promising anticancer effects.
Molecular hydrogen water may suppress cancer cell growth and invasion
… however, molecular hydrogen water does not compromise growth of normal cells.
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) has been shown to suppress VEGF (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor), a key mediator of tumor angiogenesis (the development of new blood vessels), by the reduction of excessive ROS (oxidative stress) and through the down regulation of ERK (key growth factor needed for cellular division). 7
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) has been shown to reduce the excessive expressions of MMP genes (MMP proteins are in involved in multiple functions in cells, including cell proliferation, cartilage synthesis, apoptosis, angiogenesis, etc). It has been shown that cancerous cells have a higher expression of MMP genes leading to tumor invasion and tumor angiogenesis. Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) has been shown to reduce tumor invasion and tumor growth and because of this effect, Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) has been shown to have anti-tumor effects. 8, 9
“First, molecular hydrogen water caused growth inhibition of human tongue carcinoma cells HSC-4 (cancerous) and human fibrosarcoma cells HT-1080 (cancerous) but biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) did not compromise growth of normal human tongue epithelial-like cells DOK .” 10
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) appears to induce cancer cell apoptosis (cell death)
… and biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) prevents cell apoptosis in normal cells.
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) appears to shorten telomeres in cancer cells. Telomeres are the “end caps” of DNA. Shortening telomeres can cause cell apoptosis (cell death).
“ERW [Electrolisys Reduced Water aka Alkaline Ionized Water that is also hydrogen water] causes telomere shortening in cancer cells and suppresses tumor angiogenesis by scavenging intracellular ROS and suppressing the gene expression and secretion of vascular endothelial growth factor. In addition, ERW/ Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) induces apoptosis together with glutathione in human leukemia HL60 cells (Tsai et al. 2009a, b).” 11,12
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) appears to stimulate cellular death pathways in cancerous cells.
“Treatment with both H2 waters (HHW and NHW) increased the expression of p-AMPK, AIF and Caspase 3 (cell apoptosis pathways) in colon 26 cells. Thus, H2 water resulted in cell apoptosis mediated by the AMPK pathway in colon 26 cells”. 13
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) effects on healthy NORMAL CELLS
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) in numerous studies has demonstrated an anti-apoptotic effect in health or injured cells.
“These findings indicate that hydrogen-rich saline protects heart and liver from injury by inhibiting cell apoptosis.” 14
“These findings demonstrate that hydrogen-rich saline could decrease DOX-induced cell apoptosis.” 15
“HS (hydrogen-rich saline) significantly reduced neuronal apoptosis (cell death) and improved neurological function at 24 hours after SAH (subarachnoid hemorrhage). The levels of pAkt and pGSK3β (cell survival pathways), mainly expressed in neurons, were markedly up-regulated.” 16
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) may help to prevent genetic mutations
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water )has great potential to reduce somatic mutation through the reduction of excessive ROS (oxidative stress). 17 Somatic mutation is a genetic alteration acquired by a cell that can be passed to another mutated cell in the course of cell division. Somatic mutations differ from germline mutations, which are inherited genetic alterations that occur in the germ cells (i.e., sperm and eggs). 18
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) may protect healthy tissue/cells from anticancer drugs
It has shown through medical studies that molecular hydrogen water has a protective effect against chemotherapy drugs.
“Conclusion: Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) has potential for improving the quality of life of patients during chemotherapy by efficiently mitigating the side effects of cisplatin.” 19
Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) may have the potential to retard the development of some cancers
It was demonstrated that molecular hydrogen water may protect and retard the development of thymic lymphoma in mice.
“However, the radiation-induced thymic lymphoma rate in the Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water )(+) group was significantly lower than in the control group and Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) treatment significantly increased the latency of lymphoma development after the split-dose irradiation. These data indicated that Biatomic molecular hydrogen water (H2 rich water ) protects mice from radiation-induced thymic lymphoma in BALB/c mice.” 20
This is only a glimpse at the promising effects seen from this “simple” molecule. Molecular hydrogen/hydrogen water has demonstrated these anticancer effects in scientific studies with no cytotoxic effects or cytotoxic by-products. This makes these findings even more fascinating and intriguing. Based on the current body of research, the future for this medical gas in the area of cancer and other degenerative diseases looks promising.
According to Tyler W. LeBaron, director of MHF, more research and human studies are required to determine molecular hydrogen’s effect on cancer. However, the preliminary data we discussed throughout these articles and the many testimonials out there is very persuasive.

Electric water ionizers are the most proven and convenient way to create diatomic molecular hydrogen – H2 dissolved in water and have a 30+ year track record of improvements/ patents in this regard.
An electric water ionizer, as a flow through device, produces molecular hydrogen H2 water on-demand; you turn it on and you can instantly enjoy molecular hydrogen H2 water at the ionized alkaline level you enjoy and select.
One added benefit is that, in the water ionization /electrolysis process, the levels of fluoride ions and chemical compounds such as nitrates, phosphates and cyanide are reduced as they get attracted towards the acid water side.
AlkaViva has test results from the University of Nevada at Reno documenting this benefit.
All AlkaViva electric water ionizers employ a patented technology that reverses the polarity of electrodes with every use, ensuring the electrode plates are maintained in a pristine condition and preserving their ability to generate therapeutic levels of diatomic molecular hydrogen – or H2 water.
There is a newer technology for diatomic molecular hydrogen – or H2 water appearing on the market that is a significant departure from both the electric water ionizers and the magnesium-based, non-electric methods that produce dissolved molecular hydrogen H2 in water
These electric moleclar hydrogen H2 water generators are designed to create dissolved molecular hydrogen H2 in neutral pH water. Until they are tested extensively in the market over time, their durability remains unproven but a definite plus is that they can make good levels of diatomic molecular hydrogen water.
We will be recommending UltraWater filter pre-treatment because the two standard water filters (carbon and .01m water filters) are produced in Asia and while they offer a good reduction of microorganisms, offer limited water contaminant reduction.
There are healing natural water springs around the world. Among them, are places like Nordenau (Germany), Tlacote (Mexico) and Hita Tenryosui, Japan. Research has documented that these waters contain dissolved molecular hydrogen1-3 along with alkaline minerals. These water springs get their healing characteristics through contact with natural alkaline earth metals and minerals. It is important to note that the molecular hydrogen level in water from the best natural healing spring is well below the molecular hydrogen H2 water level possible from an average electric water ionizer.
If quality water filters are used in non-electric water ionizers, then contaminants will be removed while helpful minerals are allowed to pass through. This makes a clean, mineralized healthy water that is designed to imitate nature’s healing springs. Unfortunately, today’s tap water is nothing like the water from natural springs. It often contains a host of chemicals, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, and other toxic substances, and it is an oxidizing agent.
Most countertop units that produce molecular hydrogen H2 water do not address the tap water contamination issue. Their water filters remove or reduce chlorine and some other contaminants (but not all).
What is significant about any non-electric countertop water ionizers is that they will give filtered, alkaline pH and ionized water on-demand. Equally significant is that they will NOT necessarily produce significant levels of molecular hydrogen H2 on-demand. This is because the amount of molecular hydrogen H2 water produced depends on how long the water stays in the water filter between uses. Reason is magnesium in these water filters requires a certain amount of contact time with water before it can transform into molecular hydrogen H2. Once you have poured a continuous stream of water or completed a few start and stops, from filling glasses or containers, the molecular hydrogen H2 water production falls off significantly. The level of molecular hydrogen H2 will ALWAYS be highest when the non electric water ionizer has been sitting for a period of time so that the water in it and magnesium can react – the longer the better – just like a stick.
Molecular Hydrogen producing magnesium Tablets and Powders
Another way of producing molecular hydrogen H2 water is from metallic magnesium in the form of tablets or powders. There are a number of these products on the market today. Some are formulated to dissolve in water, producing the molecular hydrogen H2 reaction in a container before you consume the molecular hydrogen water . Others are formulated to be ingested – with the molecular hydrogen H2 being produced in the stomach. Since these products consist mainly of a special form of magnesium – a mineral that most of us are lacking in the diet – it’s normally both safe and beneficial to ingest.
The preferred method to make molecular hydrogen water is to use a tablet that dissolves in water. Why? Molecular hydrogen H2 saturation levels can easily be tested and documented. Using Molecular Hydrogen H2 reagent drops, you can measure the amount of molecular hydrogen H2 produced.4 Testing is impossible when tablets or powders are ingested. Also, the beneficial research results that have been achieved from ingesting molecular hydrogen H2 have mainly come from studies where subjects consumed dissolved molecular hydrogen H2 in water.
Tablets create molecular hydrogen H2 water in approximately 20 minutes. Drop the tablet into an airtight bottle of water, and you’ll see the molecular hydrogen gas bubbles immediately form, infusing it with the powerful health properties of molecular hydrogen H2. In fact, such tablets currently produce the most potent concentration of molecular hydrogen H2 water. Everyone is different when it comes to taste, and some people report that various versions of the molecular hydrogen H2 generating tablets if magnesium have an unpleasant taste. You can add lemon juice or other flavoring without affecting the molecular hydrogen H2 concentration.
While it is true that molecular hydrogen H2 producing tablets dissolved in water can make very high levels of molecular hydrogen H2 saturation, it is equally true that inconsistent performance is a real problem. Molecular hydrogen is the smallest element occupying the first position on the periodic table. Molecular hydrogen is similarly the smallest molecule – and it’s a gas. molecular hydrogen wants to escape and will if not prepared in the right type of container. If the container is not completely airtight, filled all the way to the top, capped tightly and then allowed to sit for the correct amount of time, you will have wildly inconsistent results. If the preparation is botched it is entirely possible to have no molecular hydrogen H2 in the water.
AlkaViva’s H2Viva is a molecular hydrogen H2 tablet product that you dissolve in water and that has been verified to produce a consistent saturation level up to twice the amount or more than that of a new hydrogen stick and will do so in half the time. These are stronger, faster, more consistent and convenient – working any place you have drinking water and a container.
Tablets are an effective way to get good molecular hydrogen saturation – IF you have done everything correctly. There is no doubt they are an excellent way to get the benefits of molecular hydrogen H2 when you are traveling. Overall they are easy to use, very affordable, portable, and – if used properly – consistently produce a high saturation of molecular hydrogen H2 water.
But what about water filtration? This is why at least a NON electric water ionizer with a great UltraWater filtercould come in handy
The idea that you could generate molecular hydrogen H2 in water from metallic magnesium reacting with water was first introduced in the late 1990’s. Magnesium sticks have been marketed since the early 2000s. You purchase the magnesium stick, drop it into a bottle filled with water and cap it. molecular hydrogen H2 is produced when water comes into contact with a reactive form of magnesium metal in the stick. The chemical reaction is:
Mg + 2H2O —> Mg(OH)2 + H2
After waiting a while, and if you’ve done everything correctly, you will have molecular hydrogen H2 dissolved in water. One issue with the sticks is they do not filter the water. Many manufacturers recommend they be used with bottled water only. At a minimum, you should be using properly filtered water.
Also, while they will produce varying levels of molecular hydrogen H2 saturation when new, molecular hydrogen water generating sticks are not as convenient as an electric water ionizer. You have to wait for the chemical reaction to take place in a limited amount of water. Worse, there is no consistency in how long it takes to create the molecular hydrogen H2. Plus there is no data on how long a magnesium stick is capable of producing significant amounts of molecular hydrogen H2. The bottom line is that they work – with some important caveats.
The explosion in published research, covering every organ and over 150 disease models, continues to demonstrate positive impacts on health and wellbeing with no contraindications of diatomic molecular hydrogen( water). With all these choices of ways to take advantage of the benefits of consuming molecular hydrogen (water), there is no reason not to! It seems clear to us, at least for now, that electric water ionizers are the most proven, easiest and most consistent way to get your daily molecular hydrogen water

Improved DARC II Cleaning for water ionization electrodes/ cellsClean electrodes are critical to diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 water infusion/generation performance. Hard Water is the enemy of diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 infusion/generation performance. AlkaViva DARC (DUAL AUTO REVERSE CLEAN) II system cleans electrodes in your AlkaViva H2 water ionizer with every use. It helps ensure that the most critical component of the AlkaViva h2 water ionizer stays free of damaging scale buildup (especially from hard water). You never have to wait for a electrode cleaning cycle to complete to drink alkaline ionized water with dissolved molecular hydrogen.On top of that, clean electrodes with every use implies longer life for your water ionizer plus constant water ionization performance over the years to come
The water cell – the heart and engine of the water ionizer – has two components: electrodes and (ion exchange) membranes.
Diatomic molecular hydrogen- H2 water Infusion Technology is based on the fact that water ionization cell membranes are as critical as the electrodes.
AlkaViva water ionization cell membranes are made in-house(NOT from outside sources) and are ultrasonically pressed, rather than bonded with chemicals. This provides you with a distinctly superior water ionization cell membrane that is designed to work specifically with AlkaViva SMART DESIGN electrodes, giving unmatched water ionization performance.
When you put together AlkaViva advanced SmartDesign electrodes to AlkaViva ultrasonically pressed water ionization cell membranes, the result is a great level of diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 dizolved in water
Technology and better diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 performance(meaning more molecular hydrogen H2 dizolved in ionized alkaline water). This is especially so at the better tasting lower levels of pH(7 up to 10)

Benefits of Diatomic molecular Hydrogen H2
Molecular Hydrogen is the lightest and simplest element making it easy to absorb by your body. Over 500 studies show that biatomic molecular hydrogen or H2 has a therapeutic benefit in 140 health conditions and disease models.
Increase in Energy – Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is the fuel that powers your live human cells during physical activity. Drinking diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 infused UltraWater helps maintain the high ATP production needed during exercise – providing optimal strength, endurance and recovery.
Reduced Lactic acid (Muscle Fatigue, Cachexia in cancer patients) – When you exercise, your lactic acid increases. Same happens if you are a cancer patient and eat sugar. Lactic acid buildup leads to fatigue, muscle damage, decreased endurance, reduced performance, and poor training results and even cachexia in cancer . Peer-reviewed research on athletes shows that diatomic molecular hydrogen decreases lactic acid levels.
Improves your Hydration – When diatomic molecular hydrogen H2 molecules combine with and neutralize damaging oxygen radicals, they are transformed into water (H2O) – increasing your cellular hydration. The water ionization also creates a light, silky-smooth tasting water that is easy to drink(ionized water penetrates cells better).
Incredible Antioxidant Power – Exercise requires more oxygen than most activities. Increases in oxygen can produce free radicals, leading to chain reactions and eventually cell damage. Oxidation is literally the aging process while antioxidants prevent or slow down the oxidative damage. Most antioxidants neutralize free bad radicals, but they can also neutralize the good ones that your body needs. Molecular hydrogen selectively targets only the damaging oxygen radicals, leaving behind the good radicals. This makes it a superior antioxidant.
Alkaline Ionized Water , pH, ORP and Diatomic Hydrogen Water
The ability to produce high concentrations of molecular hydrogen at a pH of around 9.5 is probably the most important thing to consider when choosing a water ionizer.
Alkaline ionized water(AIO) or Electrolisys Reduced Water (ERW) is most efficiently produced by using an electric water ionizer. Alkaline ionized water (also molecular hydrogen water) is marketed by many names. Until recently this water was commonly referred to scientifically as Electrolyzed Reduced Water (ERW).
Now, scientists are often referring to it as Molecular Hydrogen Water. This is because research (especially in the past 10 years) has shown that the dissolved molecular hydrogen gas (H2), present in water created by electric water ionizers, is what is mainly responsible for its many benefits. Perhaps the most accurate name is electrolytically-produced, hydrogen-enriched, alkaline water.
Why molecular hydrogen H2 (water) is good for your health regimen?
H2 molecular hydrogen (water) is the Master Antioxidant Molecular hydrogen is the smallest element and lightest molecule so it easily diffuses into subcellular compartments scavenging dangerous oxygen radicals and so protects DNA and RNA from oxidative stress.
H2 Molecular hydrogen Activates your Body’s own Powerful Enzymes Molecular hydrogen H2 triggers the activation of additional antioxidant enzymes such as glutathione and other cell-protective proteins.
Research Suggests Therapeutic Benefit of Molecular hydrogen in Over 130 Disease Models Over 500 peer-reviewed scientific articles indicate this fact. Drinking H2-Molecular hydrogen saturated water produced the vast majority of the benefits observed.
H2 Molecular hydrogen Can Favorably Alter Cell Metabolism, Signaling and Gene Expression Research suggests that Molecular hydrogen H2 could improve cell signaling functions and provide anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic and anti-apoptotic (anti-cell death) effects.
H2Viva – the most powerful and proven molecular hydrogen.
The Benefits of Molecular hydrogen (water)
Due to the large amount of research, over the past ten years, on the effects of Molecular hydrogen H2 in water, we now know that the hydroxide ion (OH-) is NOT responsible for most of the positive effects observed when drinking alkaline ionized water. The active antioxidant in ionized water is dissolved molecular hydrogen (H2).
In 2010, a review article, published in “Free Radical Research” stated; “It is not an overestimate to say that hydrogen’s impact on therapeutic and preventative medicine could be enormous in the future”. Since that article was published there have been over 200 peer-reviewed articles published, that focus on about 80 different diseases models, and that conclude that molecular hydrogen (water) appears to have a beneficial effect.
Great news for AlkaViva water ionizers customers:
We have tested (using Reno city water as our source) ionized alkaline water from 2 AlkaViva water ionizers, the Vesta GL 988 water ionizer & purifier and Athena JS 205 water ionizer & purifier. Both consistently on demand produced molecular hydrogen H2 concentrations of around .6 ppm at a 9.5 pH. Higher levels can be also achieved by slowing dowm the water flow etc. This is higher than test results obtained from any other water ionizer.
We are also happy to announce we now have a new series of water ionizers with hydrogen infusion technology that include the latest innnovations .
As you can see , the new AlkaViva H2 water ionizers can produce as much molecular hydrogen in alkaline ionized water as 1.6 ppm( up to saturation point!!!)
We compared the new AlkaViva water purifiers (2 filters) – ionizers with Hydrogen Infusion Technology H2. the water purifiers-ionizers(Melody II H2, Athena H2, Vesta H2) , water purifiers -ionizers with Double Reverse AutoCleanse System for electrode / water ionization plates DARC2, water purifiers – ionizers with SMPS power source and AutoAdjust technology (that dynamically & real time varies the power applied to the electrodes according to the varying mineral content of the filtered water that enters the water ionization cell), water purifiers-ionisers with SmartDesign electrodes (low power, small in size but energy effective),water purifiers – ionizers with 2 water filters (a water prefilter and water filter) , and water purifiers – ionizers with the most recent AlkaViva technology: infusion of hydrogen H2
Water containing dissolved molecular hydrogen H2 neutralizes only the free radicals that are directly toxic to cells and do not have a biologically important cell signaling role. Therefore alkaline, ionized water, with a good saturation of hydrogen molecules. appears to be an ideal choice of antioxidant.
The reason why the right brand of electric water ionizer is the most efficient way of producing H2 (hydrogen water) is because it produces, every time, consistent amounts of molecular hydrogen in the ionized alkaline water.
Non-electric water ionizers rely on magnesium in their water filters to make the molecular hydrogen water and the water filters need to remain emersed in water for a good while to get the levels of dissolved molecular hydrogen H2 they advertise. They are therefore more like batch units that will give no molecular hydrogen H2 if used for more than a liter or two of alkalized ionized water at once.
In 1965 the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (JMHLW) approved (electric) water ionizers as a medical substance generator which could help with gastrointestinal symptoms under the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law. Currently Japanese companies still get certified through the JMHLW. In Korea, the Korean FDA certifies water ionizers sold or manufactured in that country.
There have been numerous peer reviewed article published in the past 15 years on the wide-ranging benefits from drinking alkaline, ionized water from an electric water ionizer. In that time there has been no reports of any negative effects.
AlkaViva is the exclusive western Agent for Jupiter Science/ Emco Tech & BionTech water ionizers. These are the largest manufacturers of electric water ionizers in Asia that supply water ionizers to companies such as Samsung, Toyo, LG and Hyundai.
HOW ELECTRIC WATER IONIZERS WORK
Electric water ionizers produce alkaline ionized water containing dissolved molecular hydrogen at the cathode (the negative electrode) and acidic ionized water at the anode (the positive electrode).
Each electric water ionizer contains a water/electrolisys cell with water ionization plates/electrodes. A small electrical current is applied to these water ionization plates/electrodes. Membranes are placed between the electrodes to keep the acid and alkaline ionized water streams from mixing.
Only electric water ionizers are capable of consistently producing alkaline ionized water on demand that contains significant amounts of dissolved molecular hydrogen.(H2) enriched water.
Figure 2. Schematic of how an electric water ionizer works. Tap water is filtered, a salt solution may be added for strong alkaline and acidic waters, electrolysis is performed and the various ionized waters(acidic & alkaline) are produced.
Electrolysis in a electric water ionizer requires conductive minerals/electrolites to be present. In theory you can produce hydrogen molecules (H2 water) using pure water() but that would require a lot more wattage per area of water ionization plates/electrodes than the small amount needed in an electric water ionizer. But this is not good for water ionization plates/electrodes That is why AlkaViva sells a remineralizing water filter for use with almost pure water, such as that produced using a reverse osmosis water filtration unit. It is also beneficial to drink mineral rich water.
Alkaline drinking water (from an electric water ionizer) typically has a pH of 8 – 10 and a Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) of -50 to -750 mV and a molecular hydrogen (H2) level of about .5 ppm. The higher/stronger the -ORP the higher the H2 but there is a level of PH above which the water may taste unpleasant and is not recommended – or necessary. Also, ionized alkaline water with PH>10 is not safe to drink for a long time
Acidic ionized water typically has a pH of 4 – 6 and a ORP of +350 – +750 mV. There is no molecular H2 produced in the acidic ionized water and this acid ionized water is not used for drinking but has many other purposes . It is possible to create a sterilizing 2.5 – 3 pH acidic water solution but this is not recommended as it can, over time, degrade the surface of the water ionizing plates/electrodes.
How Hydrogen Water is Created – using a Water Ionizer
The process of producing alkaline and acidic water is relatively simple (as well as dissolved molecular hidrogen in water): The H+ ions (acid) are attracted to the negatively charged cathode where they are converted to molecular hydrogen (H2) according to the equation: 2e- + 2H+ –> H2. Because pH is the concentration of the H+ ions, and the amount of H+ ions are being decreased (converted to H2) the pH increases thus making the water alkaline. (Note: pH is logarithmic, so a decrease in H+ concentration is an increase in pH.)
At the other electrode, the hydroxide (OH–) ions are attracted to the positive anode where they are oxidized to form H+ ions. Because pH is a measurement of the concentration of H+ ions, and the amount of H+ ions is being increased, the pH decreases thus making the water acidic. (Note: pH is logarithmic, so an increase in H+concentration is a decrease in pH.
At the anode, (acidic ionized water side) the H+ ions, or more accurately H30+ (hydronium) ions, are produced.
At the cathode, an equal concentration of base (hydroxide ions or OH-) is produced.
If the two are combined, there is no change in the pH of the water.
The OH- ion is attracted to the positive electrode (anode) where they are oxidized to form oxygen gas (O2) and hydrogen ions (H+). The OH- ion (hydroxide) is neither an antioxidant or an oxidizing agent. The hydroxide ion is not a reactive molecule – it contains stable paired electrons.
The hydroxide ion is a BASE, but it is not a biological antioxidant.
The H+ ion is then attracted to the negative electrode (cathode -alkaline ionized water side) and is reduced to a hydrogen atom which immediately reacts with another H+ to form H2 – molecular hydrogen gas.
The decrease in H+ ions results in a more alkaline water pH . Since there are more H+ ions (as hydronium ions) at the anode, the pH is acidic.
In other words, as you increase the pH, the H3O concentration decreases by the same amount that the OH- concentration increases. A 1-fold pH increase or decrease is a 10-fold change in the H3O+ concentration; changing the pH by 3 results in a 1,000-fold change in the H30+ concentration.
The actual diatomic molecular hydrogen produced and the pH and ORP vary due to the water ionizer used and the mineral content of the source water.
The ability to produce high concentrations of molecular hydrogen at a pH of around 9.5 is probably the most important thing to consider when choosing a water ionizer.
In ionized water ORP reflects the difference between the presence of dissolved molecular hydrogen H2and the concentration of H+. It measures the capacity of a solution to either release or accept electrons from chemical reactions. Oxidation is the loss of electrons. Reduction is GAINING electrons to become stable .
You can create a negative ORP by decreasing H+ (raising the pH) and/or increasing the dissolved molecular hydrogen concentration. You can make the ORP positive by increasing the H+ concentration (lowering the pH) and/or decreasing the dissolved molecular hydrogen concentration. Ideally it is best not to drink water with a positive ORP because it causes the body to reduce it at the expense of consuming electrical energy from the cell membrane. Tap water and most bottled waters have a positive ORP.
Having a negative ORP does NOT make ionized alkaline water an antioxidant.
The concentration of H2 is the determining factor of antioxidant power of alkaline ionized water .
Negative ORP is a general indicator of the presence of dissolved molecular hydrogen H2 (the actual antioxidant in alkaline ionized water) but it does not accurately measure the concentration. Because water’s pH plays a large role in ORP, you can have one glass of ionized alkaline water with an ORP of -800 mV and another with an ORP of -400 mV but because of the differences in pH the second glass can have more molecular hydrogen than the first.
Also once the pH is above 9.5, ORP is an invalid measurement of H2.
The ability to produce high concentrations of molecular hydrogen at a pH of 9.5 is the most important thing to consider when choosing a water ionizer.
A negative Oxidation-Reduction Potential (-ORP) is indicative of the presence of molecular hydrogen, but it is NOT a measurement of the concentration.
The Importance of ORP
A high positive ORP (+ORP) kills pathogens by stealing electrons from the bacteria’s DNA, cell membranes and proteins.
The high ORP (+ORP) of electrolyzed oxidizing acidic ionized water makes it an effective way to kill bacteria and viruses.
Oxygen has a high ORP and can damage DNA and proteins.
Molecular hydrogen (H2) has a very low ORP (-ORP) and is thus a reducing agent or antioxidant.
Chlorine is added to tap water to kill bacteria because it has a high positive ORP.
The ORP of the internal environment of a healthy person is always on the reductive side (negative). Human saliva and mother’s milk has an ORP of -70 mv, with some redox couples below -350 mV.
Drinking water with a positive ORP causes the body to reduce it at the expense of consuming electrical energy from human cell membranes. Tap water, bottled water, rain water, RO water, have a positive ORP; most between 200-400 mV and as high as 500-600 mV.
Optimal drinking water has a negative ORP. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that the ORP of drinking water not exceed 60 mV.
Freshly made fruit and vegetable juice have an ORP of around -50 mV.
Other Ways of Creating Diatomic Hydrogen Enriched Water
You can breath molecular hydrogen H2 gas, you can inject molecular hydrogen H2 rich saline or use it as eye drops, you can bathe in it, you can put it on your skin, you can increase the production of molecular hydrogen H2 by intestinal bacteria … OR you can create molecular hydrogen H2-rich water created by an electric water ionizer or from hydrogen-producing tablets of magnesium .
Which method of producing molecular hydrogen in water is best?
Early research suggests that the most effective – and easiest approach is to drink molecular hydrogen H2-rich water.
molecular hydrogen (H2) water can be produced using electrolysis, dissolving tablets or dissolving molecular hydrogen H2 gas into water
Magensium tablets that dissolve in water are a convenient way to produce molecular hydrogen H2 rich water. Using the right form of magnesium mixed with other ingredients, a reaction takes place with water to produce dissolved hydrogen gas.[Mg + 2 H20 >>> H2 + 2OH-]. This is the most common method used by scientific researchers for human and animal studies.
This method can achieve high concentrations of molecular hydrogen that is further enhanced when electrically ionized alkaline water is also used. This method produces by far the highest concentration of molecular hydrogen H2 and is a great way to supplement the usage of clean, alkaline, ionized water taken during the rest of the day.
Magnesium tablets that are taken internally without being dissolved in water may also be effective (one published study) but these tablets are hard to dissolve, even in a buffered acid solution.
It may take several hours to release all the molecular hydrogen gas, and this is similar to molecular hydrogen gas produced by gut bacteria.
ATTENTION! There is on the market a non-electric water ionizer unit that claims to be capable of creating high levels of hydrogen water using water flow through (like an electric water ionizer) but in reality after about a liter of water flows through the production of molecular hydrogen H2 drops dramatically because the magnesium does not have enough time to soak and react with the water.

* Switch off and stop using the water ionizer and contact customer service.
Calcium in ionized water When filling your cup with alkaline water, white flakes are seen floating in the cup. * This large quantity of mineral flakes in the water may occur right after a filter change or first use of the water ionizer. There is no problem with drinking this water as it is mostly calcium which is not harmful to consume. When high alkaline water is left in a container, the water will form a white film around the edges or on the bottom. The substance is CaCO2 – bonded calcium, which falls to the bottom of the container. If you prefer to not have this white substance in your water, adjust the pH to a lower level which will reduce the possibility of calcium bonding. Calcium flakes form by bonding with hydrogen which is abundant in alkaline water. The presence of calcium is a sign that the water ionizer is functioning properly. If you would like to clean calcium out of any container, put a spoonful of vinegar in the container and fill it with water. Vinegar will dissolve the calcium. Leave the water in the container for 1 hour and shake the water out. FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US FOR ANY HELP: +40758638401 Kindest Regards! AlkaViva Team
Filtered Water (not ionized, usually neutral pH (it will have the same pH as your source water). For babies and toddlers it’s best to use filtered water which is neither alkaline nor acidic. pH range 7-8. Also, when you are taking medication filtered water is best.
Acid ionized water: If you set your ionizer on and acidic-level, alkaline ionized water [which is drinkable by the way] will come out the bottom hose, Otherwise, acid water comes out of the bottom hose or spout when you are pouring alkaline ionized water. Acidic water stores very well. You can keep it in an open container, tub, etc. and it will remain the same acidity as when you poured it.
ALKALINE IONIZED WATER USES:
Drinking alkaline ionized water: At 8.5 pH to 9.5 or 10 pH alkaline ionized water is the perfect drinking water. It will help to neutralize the acidity of the body and slightly alkalize the body. Alkalizing the body will help to ward off infections, cancer and other invaders to the naturally healthy state of the body. Alkaline ionized water also assists in the safe removal of toxins from the body. In addition to the health-benefits of alkalizing your body, the negative ORP [oxidation reduction potential] of alkaline ionized water will provide the body with lots of easily absorbable antioxidants. Anti-oxidants are important in order to prevent free-radical damage that would otherwise be caused by oxidation within the body. Directions: Start drinking at about an 8.5 pH and slowly work your way up to 9.5 pH. For best results, don’t rush it.
Natural vitamins &alkaline ionized water: Feel free to drink whatever level of ionized water you are drinking with taking your vitamins. Microclustered, ionized alkaline water will assist in the best and fastest absorption of vitamins into your body.
Illness: If you’re new to ionized water and get ill, reduce your level of pH until you are feeling back to normal. Drink extra water at the reduced level, though, to help flush whatever it is from your system. If you become ill when you are a veteran [of at least several months] at drinking ionized water, and you haven’t recently changed anything regarding the pH level of your ionized water, then I suggest simply drinking more ionized water at the level which you have become comfortable drinking. This will help flush whatever it is out of your system faster.Read more –alkaline ionized water & health -click
Cleaning & Laundry using alkaline ionized water: At the highest levels of alkalinity [10.5 – 11.5 pH] the ionized water will emulsify oils. This is great for soaking non-organic vegetables in, because soaking in it will help to naturally remove the oily pesticides from the outer layer of the vegetable. It also has another great use as a stain-remover. I have personally had success with completely removing chocolate, blood, blue-berry stain, peanut butter, pet-stains and other stains from clothing, carpets, tile-grout, and furniture over the years. Here are some other ideas for using the highest alkaline for cleaning [we’ll cover the lowest acid-water later]:
You can pour a bowl of the high alkaline and a second one of acidic water… for cleaning fine washables [like stockings, silk skarf, etc.]. When you do this I suggest to let it soak for several minutes in the high alkaline, then agitate and wring-out the garments. Follow this up with a soak in the low acid water, which will act as a germicidal, softener [removing any residual alkaline minerals], and freshen it up.
You can pour 2 – 4 gallons of high alkaline in with your laundry and not need to use detergent.
You can use high alkaline for cleaning greasy areas, like floors, stoves and countertops.
WHEN TO USE JUST FILTERED WATER
Medications: A neutral 7.0 – 8.0 pH filtered water is perfect for taking medications. For 20-30 min. before and after taking medications it is suggested to only drink filtered water. The chemical make-up of medications and the predicted rate of absorption into the body can be altered by consuming microclustered, ionized water with them. Rather than take a chance of messing up your doctor’s plans, it’s better to just take the safe route described here.
Infants & Todlers: A neutral pH is perfect for babies. Give babies and todlers “filtered” water, not ionized, until they are about 2 years old. After that, you can slowly introduce them to ionized water [i.e., over the next 2 – 3 years use level 1, then do the same for level 2, etc.]. At about 9 or 10, a child can drink the same level as an adult.
ACIDIC IONIZED WATER [OXIDATIVE IONIZED WATER]
Skin and Hair & acid ionized water: Acidic water at the 3 – 4 pH-level is perfect for neutralizing the skin and hair [which should be about 5.5 pH, but because of alkaline soaps and shampoos you use, the skin and hair are usually found to be way off-balanced]. Acid water is used as a… [See more on this page: https://www.alkalinewaterplus.com/beauty-tips ]
Acid ionized water as Skin Toner and Conditioner: Your acid mantle [outermost layer] of your skin is your body’s first line of defense against bacterial, fungal or viral infections. It is important to maintain this acid mantle at about a 5.5 pH. However, because of the nature of soaps [soaps are typically a high alkaline pH in order to emulsify and flush away oils] the acid mantle is often left at too high of a pH after bathing or showering. The consequences of this is a breakdown of the acid mantle, drying out of the skin, and roughness caused by a build-up of alkaline minerals left on the skin. Rinsing with acid water helps to remove the residual alkaline minerals and restore your skin to its perfect 5.5 ph-level.
Hair Rinse withacid ionized water: Shampoo is most often found at a high alkaline pH. A high pH solution applied to your hair will open up the hair cuticles [the cuticle is the outermost hair-layer surrounding each hair shaft], and expose it to becoming dry and damaged. It is most beneficial to the health and beauty of your hair to close the hair cuticle . The cuticle opens with a high pH and closes with a low pH. When you rinse with water at a pH of about 3.0 to 4.0, this low pH water combines with the high pH of your newly washed hair and restores it to its ideal pH of about 5.5. Beauty Secret: Hair that has tightly closed cuticles has a smoothe, shiny, silky look to it and doesn’t split at the ends.
Acid ionized water as Natural, Healthy Coolant: Acidic water can be placed in a spray bottle and brought with you to sports or other outdoor events in hot weather. When you set your bottle to mist, this has an air-conditioning effect of cooling off your body. It’s healthier for you to use acid water at about a 5.5 pH in your mister, rather than regular tap water, because the goal of misting is to cool yourself, not change the pH of your skin. The proper pH of skin is about 5.5 pH.
Acid ionized water as Natural Laundry Softener: Add acid water to your final rinse cycle of any load of laundry. This removes residual alkaline minerals from the clothing, brightens up the colors, and softens the laundry naturally, without the use of chemicals.
Acid ionized water for plants: Acid water at the pH levels of 5 – 7 pH is great for watering plants. Plants love the purified micro clustered water, and they also love the water to be slightly acidic. Flowering plants tend to like lower acidity than green shade-plants.
Acid ionized water as Antimicrobial/Germicidal Water: To kill germs it is best to use acid water at the pH level of 2.5 – 4. The lower the pH the faster the germs are killed, but even at a 4 pH, if you soak something for about a minute it will kill the germs on it. Laboratory testing has proven that exposure to acidic water at a 2.5 pH and lower kills germs on contact.
Alkaline ionized water on long & short terms – RULES and WARNINGS of use / consumption & storage / bottling
How to Use/Drink Alkaline Ionized Water
The ideal pH level of alkaline ionized water for long term human consumption is between 8.5 and 9.5 (and no greater than 10.0) with the ideal ORP value around -250mV to -350mV (and in no way significantly greater than -400mV).
1. long term consumption of alkaline water with a pH >10
PH values significantly higher than 10 are unfit for human consumption as indicated by the World Health Organization and the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact water with high PH values such as 11 is found in ammonia solution and a PH value of 13 is the PH value found in household bleach!
For more details & uses of higly alkaline ionized water for cleaning & stain removal read this article- clic
For long term drinking of ionized alkaline water, a max of 9.5 pH is a good number but more importantly it is good to get a low –ORP (less than -300 is ideal). Trouble is that -ORP is not easy to measure and usually the devices used are inaccurate. Also good for most people to start on low level for first few days or until they feel they can easily go up to a higher level. If someone is very sick and even a low level feels too much then they can always mix low level ionized water with just filtered water from ionizer. I do not like meat but understand also that some people are helped by having a diet that also includes meat. But regardless and in all cases more healthy fruits, vegetables, greens and enough good water are always good.
2. long-term rules/concerns of alkaline ionized water consumption:
Don’t do any alkaline water drinking with meals containing meat or dairy, and watch your body whenever you are introducing a dietary change just for good measure.
Do not drink it while taking medications [natural vitamins are fine though].
In Japan and Korea, population has been drinking ionized water for over 30 years…some even longer. Many hospitals in both Japan and Korea use water ionizers for both its alkalizing/anti-oxidizing properties for drinking and for its acid properties in healing skin sores. Even high-classed hotels have water ionizers in every room.
15% of the population of Japan that drink ionized alkaline water from water ionizers have a 10 plus year longer life expectancy than those in the United States? And they have been drinking the ionized water for an average of only 12 years! Just think if they would have started drinking ionized water from birth!
In those countries their way of life and healing is more holistic than ours. The undeniable benefits of alkaline ionized water have been experienced over a very long time in both Korea and Japan, and with ever-growing popularity and scientific validation, water ionizers are finally becoming more well-known and used in the US.
Innumerable tests have been done on mice, rats, chickens, etc., and in almost every instance there were good results noted and no negative results have ever been able to be replicated. There have been no substantiated incidents of negative long-term effects of people drinking ionized water.
When you produce alkaline ionized water the antioxidant hydroxyl ions (ORP) are fleeting in nature and will only last a maximum of 18 to 24 hours. For this reason it is best to drink the water immediately upon leaving the machine or within 6 hours time. Bottling or storing the water will not prolong the life of the hydroxyl ions and in fact you should only store what water you will be drinking during that same day. The best container to store your alkaline ionized water in is a dark glass container that is sealed and kept in a cold dark location such as your refrigerator. Exposure to oxygen in the air and light will speed up the process of decay leading to a faster loss of its antioxidant proprieties.
Due to the fleeting nature of the antioxidant hydroxyl ions bottling or storing alkaline ionized water is in no way capable of preserving the therapeutic antioxidant effects of the water. For this reason purchasing bottled alkaline water is not as beneficial as drinking the alkaline ionized water when it is fresh from the machine or in 6 hours time of its creation. Notice that when you purchase bottled water it is called “alkaline water” and not “alkaline ionized water” because of the fact that all of the hydroxyl ions have decayed. The water cannot legally be sold and called “alkaline ionized water” because all of the antioxidant hydroxyl ions have evaporated, it must now be sold strictly as “alkaline water”.
When you purchase “alkaline water” you may still get water with a higher pH (the higher PH value will remain for several months while the ORP value will dissipate completely within 24 hours) but it won’t have the same antioxidant properties as water that is fresh from the machine since the majority if not all of the ORP has evaporated from the water.
To receive the most therapeutic effects from your water ionizer be sure to drink your alkaline ionized water when it is fresh from the machine or within at most 6 hours time. If you have to take the water with you to work or on the road bottle it in a dark glass container and try to keep it sealed while placing it in a dark cold location.
Although AlkaViva water ionizers(exclusive distributor of EmcoTech water ionizers (ex Jupiter Science)) have the most advanced interna self-cleaning systems for electrode plates responsible for water electrolysis / ionization of water (MARC, DARC, the clenasing system used in Samsung Vesta water ionizer, etc.) that prevent any mineral deposits /buildups from hard water on the ionization plates (the heart of any water ionizer) and makes AlkaVivaEmcoTech/Jupiter water ionizers them the most durable in the industry of water ionizers , because hard water mineral deposits can buildup on other parts or internal parts that are less critical, AlkaViva service department for water ionizers presents below a simple method for internal cleaning of a water ionizer using white vinegar, that should be done periodically at home by any user who wants to protect hsi investment in a water ionizer.
If there is very little water coming out the tube that drains into the sink (the acid tube), the water ionizer may need cleaning because of mineral build-up on the electrodes.
This usually does not become an issue for until at least 12-24 months of use.
The safest way to clean the water ionizer so as not to damage the electrodes is to recirculate WHITE VINEGAR through the water ionizer using a small fish tank pump or small water-garden pump ($15 — $40).
1. Unplug the Water Ionizer from the electrical outlet. Remove as much water from the Water Ionizer by blowing through the silver tube, inlet tube and acid ionized water tube. Also remove the water filter and shake as much water from it as you can then replace it. The water filter must be securely placed in the Water Ionizer for cleaning the water ionizer in this method.
2. Prepare a container of WHITE VINEGAR for the pump. Attach the INLET hose from the Water Ionizer to the pump. Depending on the pump you purchase, this may require some minor modifications so that the hose will fit into the pump properly. Submerge the pump into the white vinegar.
3. Plug the small fish tank pump or small water-garden pump in to the electrical outlet. (A GFI safety plug should be used for this in order to protect against electrocution).
4. Place both the silver tube and acid water tube from the Water Ionizer into the white vinegar container so the entire system is recirculating.
5. At first, there may be very little flow through the silver tube. However, as long as the slightest amount of vinegar is flowing through the silver tube, the vinegar will eventually dissolve the calcium that is blocking the water from flowing out the tube.
6. Clean the Water Ionizer for 2-12 hours depending on how much calcium and other minerals have been deposited on the electrodes.
7. Reattach the Water Ionizer to your water source and flush the unit with water for 10-20 minutes to clean out the vinegar from the water ionizer.
8. Begin using the Water Ionizer again.
Calcium buildup on the electrodes causes the pH of the ionized water to drop because the source water is not coming in contact with the electrodes. Once your Water Ionizer is cleaned using this method, the pH of the ionized water will be higher because the water is now coming in direct contact with the cleaned electrodes.
Tip: You can also remove the silver tube from the unit and submerge it completely in the WHITE VINEGAR overnight to remove much of the calcium build up.
The reason for the calcium build up on the alkaline side of the Water Ionizer is because the high pH of the water causes the minerals in the water to precipitate out of the water and become displaced.
The Water Ionizer must be unplugged from its power source while cleaning the unit in this manner.

The Untold Truth about water memory & Dr Masaru’s Emoto “What the Bleep Water”
About feelings (love, contentment), prayer and … water memory, ionized water, water crystals as they were captured by Dr Masaru Emoto and the movie “What The Bleep”.
Ian Blair Hamilton Director, IonLife Australia
The amazing film, “What the Bleep” awakened countless thousands of ordinary people to the possibility of a quantum existence; the realization that things may be happening simultaneously on many planes of existence, encompassing all possible outcomes. It was an extraordinary film from a daring and visionary director and producer.
One of the most outstanding images in the film were the subway pictures of Dr Masaru Emoto`s magnified water crystals, because they appeared to assume perfect ice-crystal-like form when exposed to positive thoughts of love and compassion. The inference was obvious; that the expression of love and compassion can alter reality at an atomic level.
Anyone who has read Deepak Chopra`s books would already be familiar with this concept. He describes it as the point where energy becomes matter. In my years in India I found a teaching from the Kashmir Shaivites, the predecessors of Buddhism, called the Spanda Karikas.
In the Spanda Karikas, reality as we see it was described as a continual `flashing forth` or energy in the form of God. If we were to slow down this continual and repetitive `flashing forth` of what we might call slides of reality, we might see that not only do they manifest on this plane, but on all others at once, and that it is merely our attachment to this plane that causes us to experience where we live. Heady stuff indeed, especially when you consider that this theory is almost identical to the core lessons of “What the Bleep”, espoused by some of the more daring scientific minds of our time.
The Spanda Karikas were laid down by yogis sitting in meditation, yogis who had never seen a car, much less a nuclear reactor, the internet or microscopic photos of water crystals. In such basic circumstances, their brilliance of perception and insights into the holographic nature of existence, seems to me to be all that greater than someone who today has the support of the greatest array of available data and research in the history of civilization.
So when I see the wonderful concepts in !What The Bleep! I remind myself of the old Yogis sitting alone in a cave in the Himalayas who had already worked these things out!
Back to the Bleep Water. Dr Masaru Emoto has now conducted thousands of experiments on water from many places and has found that in many cases, water seems to assume a beautiful crystalline structure when prayed over, or even when it has had words like `Love` stuck to a bottle. This is indeed a wonderful idea, but there is a danger in extrapolating Mister Emoto`s findings to include waters that have not been prayed over or emotional affected.
The argument goes like this: Mister Emoto`s water samples, when prayed over, assume a beautiful crystalline form. Therefore waters with beautiful crystalline form are beneficial waters. But what about the trillions of snowflakes that fall gently from the sky, each with a perfect and unique crystalline form? How were these water crystals able to assume this amazing form and yet not be prayed over? To take it a little further, if for instance, a magnetic field could restructure water into a perfect crystalline structure, should we therefore assume it was more beneficial, or had the energy of Love imprinted in it?.
It`s clear that many of us would dearly love to believe that if we had crystalline formed water, we may experience more love in our life, or any of the other wonderful emotions and effects Mister Emoto used to create his specimens. But just as clearly, water with crystalline structure isn`t necessarily imbued with any of these attributes. So what does cause a water to restructure into this crystalline format?
Well, without getting too technical, it all depends on the negative charge in the water. This means that the water holds enough negative hydrogen ions to restructure itself into an eight-sided matrix rather than the smaller matrix of ordinary H2O. That`s all! This occurs as rain precipitates from clouds in the form of snow, (in the right atmospheric magnetic field) and in many modern water filters. In fact you can create your own Emoto water with three of the new Neodymium magnets – the sort used in hard drives. Just strap them around your ordinary fifty dollar water filter and they will create a magnetic field through which your water will pass, restructuring itself as it goes. You can do it even more simply. Tape two of these magnets opposite each other on your water pipe under the sink. The magnetic field they create in the water flowing through the pipe will create the same `Emoto` effect. Total cost: $20 at the most. There are plenty of Neodymium magnet suppliers on the net.
Of course seeing this crystalline structure is much harder than getting the effect. It requires Mister Emoto`s special water freezing process to be able to see a sample of your water in this form. This requires you to send it to Japan plus rather a larger outlay for the testing. However there is a way to see whether your water is what I`d call Emoto water, and it doesn`t take a trip to Japan.
The reason the water changes its crystalline form is the abundance of negative hydrogen ions in the water. These are ordinary hydrogen atoms that have become negatively charged as a result of the magnetic field. Because of this charge, they force the oxygen in the water to bond in a bigger structure or matrix. It is this structure you see in Mister Emoto`s beautiful pictures. So if you have lots of hydroxyl ions in your water, you can be sure that your water would, if you could see it, be like Mister Emoto`s water.
How do you find this out? You use an instrument called an ORP (Oxidation or Reduction Potential meter) If you are really keen you can buy one for about $100. This meter measures the positive or negative charge in a liquid. The presence of a strong negative charge indicates the presence of a large number of Hydroxyl ions; hence, you have Emoto water.
Ordinary tap water, measured by an ORP meter, will be around +250 millivolts. Some water filters with Tourmaline in their filters, or Neodymium magnets in the filter, will reduce this to close to zero. (Tourmaline has many names including some proprietary Japanese ones, but it is used because it has the ability to emit Far InfraRed energy, which has the same effect as a magnetic field in the restructuring and negative charging of the water.) This makes the water nicer to drink, but is it better for you? Yes it is. The hydroxyl ion is often referred to as the primal antioxidant. It is what is `caged` in foods that are known as antioxidant foods. So having Hydroxyl ions in your water, no matter how they are created, is fundamentally good.
So if a little is good, is more better? Of course. The wonderful thing about antioxidants is that scientists say that you will take up what your body needs. You won`t overdose. Of course, if your body is heavily positively charged from exposure to other electrical fields such as mobile phones, computer monitors, TV`s etc, it will need more negatively charged Hydroxyl ions. We are, as author Ray Bradbury said, `The Body Electric` and every chemical reaction that happens inside of us is a fundamental electrical one. So in today`s world, we often feel lethargic because we have far too few negative ions in our body. So how do we get more negative ions?
Interestingly, in the experiments I have done, a magnet strapped to the outside of a water filter has consistently performed better in Hydroxyl ion production that some very expensive imported water filters that claim to create restructured water. By measuring and tabulating the results of various combinations of magnets and water filters, I found that few magnetic or tourmaline-only systems brought the tap water lower than zero in millivolts. Practically, what this means is that it is certainly better than tap water, but it still isn`t contributing a net negative charge to your body.
The only way I could get a reading of negative millivolts, which indicated a net negative charge in the water, and far greater volumes of Hydroxyl ions, was by the use of an electronically controlled magnetic field induced in a purpose-built chamber in a standard Jupiter Science Water Ionizer. The computer-controlled magnetic field was strong enough to separate out the positive ions into a separate stream of water. In this way, I received water that was had far, far more negative ions than any other method. To give you an idea, if tap water was +250mv, the best reading of negative charge I saw on a magnetic or Tourmaline water filter system was +50mv, whereas the electronic water ionizer consistently produced water with readings as low as -400mv. In ideal conditions this reading can be over -800mv.
It isn`t necessary to get all technical here. You can simply look at the differences and work it out yourself. The lower the ORP meter reading, the better the Emoto effect. Pity we can`t see it, Maybe Mister Emoto will create a home crystal maker.
In the meantime, if you want crystalline structured water like Mister Emoto`s, buy a couple of magnets and strap them to your cold water pipe. If you want lots of negative ions, buy a water ionizer from IonLife.
Much of what you will read about water(i.e: from bottled water ,reverse osmosis filtered water to kangen water, alkaline water, structured water,live water, ionized water, etc) on the web and in other places is marketing hype.What is the truth ?
Here is an article by
By Dr. James Lembeck
A great deal has been written about the subject of therapeutic water over the past twenty or so years. The reason for this is that the technology to treat, filter and produce drinkable water has changed considerably. The old theories regarding what is considered to be acceptable drinking water, no longer…hold water.
Much of what you will read about water on the web and in other places is marketing hype. In many cases this information is based on myths that are perpetuated by those who are either selling something and are uneducated, or have just not done their research. This is a problem and only confuses the public more than they already are. The bottom line is that water is probably the most therapeutic substance on the planet; you just have to be able to weed through all the hype to find out what has been proven.
What is the answer to this long standing problem regarding the dissemination of inaccurate information? First we have to define what is truly meant by the term `therapeutic water`. There really is no easy answer to this question because it is such a broad term. But suffice it to say that the water you drink from the tap is not therapeutic, but other forms to varying degrees are.
It would require an entirely different article to go into ALL the different `types` of water treatment products that are being offered on the market today, and how beneficial, or not beneficial they are. For example, there are products that make distilled water, reverse osmosis water, softened water, alkalized water, structured water and several others. All of these methods of treating water to alter it, and therefore affect the way the body assimilates and uses the water to varying degrees. Some are better than others, while those that are `no good`…are really NO GOOD.
One of the best ways (although there are several ways to accomplish this task) to treat and restructure water is via electrolysis. What is that and how does it work? Well, first we have to look at what water is (H2O), and then we can look at what the manipulation of water by electrolysis (making negative ions) can do, and how it can change your life.
Water is a very simple molecule; it is so simple that all of us take its presence in our lives for granted. What it all comes down to is that water is made up of charged particles of hydrogen and oxygen. This is a very basic substance, but when taken in and used in the appropriate manner, it can help us to maintain our health far beyond what is thought to be possible by main stream medicine today. We will not go into the finer details here as to the exact mechanism of action by which alkalized/ionized water is made using electrolysis. So if you want to get more detail regarding this process, please check out the Site Map on this web site for more information.
The manipulation of water (Ionized = increasing the negative ions/alkalized = making water more alkaline) can be done in a number of ways. It can be done chemically, electrically and by the use of earth based materials known as minerals.
NOTE: Please keep in mind that the bottled water that you buy at any store, is NOT therapeutic in any way shape or form (other than possibly providing some hydration). Bottled waters look and taste like water; however they can also be classified as `dead`…what does this mean? Well, to show how `active/therapeutic` water is (or alive it is) you would need an ORP (oxygen reduction potential) meter and a pH meter, both of which most people don`t typically carry around with them. But if they did have these tools, they would show them that `dead water` has a much higher positive charge (+200 to +300) than the highly negative (high ORP) therapeutically (-200 to -700) ionized water does. High ORP water contains a much higher free negative electrical charge than bottled, distilled or tap water. With the right equipment the high ORP water can also be manipulated to either decrease or increase its pH.
Some of the researched benefits of drinking ionized/alkalized water are: 1. It may help to normalize insulin and body weight 2. It may help to maintain proper cholesterol levels 3. It can help to normalize your blood pressure 4. It can help to reduce systemic acidity 5. It can help to maintain proper electrolyte activity 6. It may have anti-aging qualities 7. It helps to promote an increase in energy levels 8. It has been shown to increase bone density 9. It can help to regulate digestive health, and increase immune function 10. It can increase hydration levels 11. Some research has been done that shows it may have anti-carcinogenic qualities 12. Alkaline ionized water can be effective in reducing constipation and diarrhea, and can help to treat skin disorders
Regular `bottled water` in many cases has been found to contain water that is really no different than what you get from the TAP. There are a few exceptions to this rule, but for some reason (great marketing) the general public gets the impression that drinking bottled water is somehow better for you. There really isn`t enough room here to go into all the bad points regarding what can be found in `bottled water` (contaminants and other chemicals such as BPA, and estrogenic plastic polymers just to name a few). So how do you get around these issues? Do you have to spend thousands of dollars to buy a beautiful home based electrolysis unit? Thankfully this isn`t the case, and now you can get filtered high ORP and alkaline water that is fully portable and is also affordable. The best place that such a portable unit is available right now that has been tested is http://www.ionizers.org/portable-ionizer.html. It is called the

Plus, it’s a delicious way to stay hydrated and help balance your pH. You do not get these benefits with other pitchers. With the pHD UltraWater pitcher you get both the cleanest and healthiest water available in a pitcher. Period. Why drink anything less?
It also contains minerals in it such as Tourmaline which is also known as `Electronic Stone`, and is mined in Israel, Brazil and China. The reason it is called the Electronic Stone is because when it is exposed to water it begins the process of electrolysis, and it generates negative ions. The production of negative ions `ionizes` waters molecular clusters and decreases their size. One of the reasons that water is so poorly utilized by the body is because of the fact that the molecules in water have a tendency to `cluster` or stick together; this is because of the fact that they carry positive and negative charges that attract each other. The ionization process reduces the size of the clusters, and makes water as a whole more bioavailable.
Alkalized and ionized water is one of the most therapeutic agents that you can consume. Water is the basis of all life; it is in many cases the deciding factor between a healthy life and one that is filled with illness and pain. The great part is, now you can take it with you where ever you go!

When the ionized water has electric energy, it causes to hydrogen in the take one of two forms. One is hydrogen, which has a positive electric charge. This ionized water is ‘acidic’. The other is hydrogen, with a link of oxygen and becomes negatively charged. This is the block of life itself with the chemical form of OH-.
An oxygen atom plus a hydrogen atom with negative charge. This is Ionized Alkaline Water. (electric) Ionized water has energy and is alkaline & can now donate energy & alkalinity to any compatible atom in your body. ionized water rich in OH- ions has a pH> 7 it is called “alkaline”.
In both forms, these hydroxyl ions OH-, or atoms now have the ability to precipitate the chemical reaction of other minerals in the water. What does it with health and longevity?
It should always be read and water ionization means and why we need negative ions.
Nothing happens in our bodies without a chemical reaction.
And every chemical reaction only happens when “energy” of only two atoms is compatible. So we can say that we are a chemical organism – by courtesy of electricity.
At the molecular level, beyond cell, trillions of rejection and electrical unification happens every millisecond of our lives. It’s a real orgy of unity, and is happening right now in your body always happens and continues to balance acid and alkaline reactions – the battle between them ends up
Who / what wins this battle ion? Acid – every time. We all know that our body acids take control after we die to damage the body. Let me tell you, acids did this many, many years before he died. They do now! Rust, break, break, burn, oxidize – they are all a natural part of our balanced metabolism.
So .. life as we know it is a “struggle” between the internal positively charged atoms (ions) and negatively charged atoms (ions). We just – but less accurately – say life is a battle between acid and alkaline, because that’s exactly what It means your body’s pH.
measuring the pH balance of the alkali / acid
Returning to the water (ionized) – where there are more H + ions than OH-ions in water, ionized acidic water talk. When there are more hydroxyl ions OH-than H +, talk ionized alkaline water.
Acid or alkali is measured by pH. pH is a measure of hydrogen ions (atoms). The more H + ions in water, the more “acidic”. The more ions OH – in water, the more “alkaline”. Acidic water and alkaline water can be considered conceptually as electric or hydrogen ion carrying a positive charge or negative electricity. All chemical processes in your body are initiated and completed when the correct electrical charge is found to match the electrical charge of another atom. Nothing happens without electricity. Electrical and chemical, are therefore the same in the body.
We agree with this?
If not, please assign five precious minutes and reread, because what will come about ionziata alkaline water is based on your understanding so far and is the key to health and anti aging secret Orin Ionized Alkaline Water.
Alright. Ionized water (and beyond) can hydrogen ions in it. An ion is an atom with an electric charge.
We can measure the pH using litmus paper or electronic pH meter. This will give a reading of 0-14, with pH 7 being neutral; or acid or alkali. Or we can use an ORP meter that tells us more. We say A = R = reduction or oxidation of the donation, P = potential of a liquid. That’s what O.R.P. înseamnă.POTENTIAL reduce oxidation
Oxidizing means the ability to oxidize. To burn and produce energy but to destroy, “rust” breaks. “That is oxidation (happens to our bodies after death).
However, oxygen is also necessary for life and the life-processes of living beings. We can not live and can not be healthy without oxygen.
Ionized water oxygenates the body by increasing the ratio of oxygen / hydrogen. Why? Easy-water H20 has one oxygen atom for every two hydrogen atoms. Ionized alkaline, rich in hydroxyl ion (OH-) has an oxygen atom for a hydrogen atom.
All other waters are deprived of this benefit. Implications of this are multiple health, energy and vitality
Ionized water oxygenates your body more effectively than any other treatment “Oxygen” / ozone therapy.
At the same time, measures are needed to prevent and combat the damage caused by oxidation processes-those antioxidants-ORP
The reduction is not as easy to understand. Scientifically, it is giving away, or to donate, so if a liquid “reduce oxidation potential”, he has the ability to donate energy to the body.
Alkaline water has millions of hydroxyl ions per bottle and provides a powerful antioxidant, numti-ORP. No other water has that incredible advantage. Hydroxyl ions help to “neutralize” free radicals that cause cellular damage / oxidative stress and premature cell aging,
Alkaline water eliminates and fights free radical damage – the body more effectively than vitamin C consumption bottles!
is what we say and Dr. Robert F. McCauley, Sr. about the antioxidant power conferred by hydroxyl ions (OH-) in alkaline ionized water and stopping and reversing the aging process
Oxygen derived from the ionized form to the body reaches a very powerful antioxidant, which has attached to it an extra electron, and it is known that the hydroxyl ion (OH-). It occurs when water is carried over positive and negative electrodes and there is a shift of electrons from one molecule to another. The hydroxyl ions have an oxygen molecule that carries an extra electron is donated to free radical in the body (see Appendix 4), so it is considered as a street sweeper “” of free radicals. What remains are two stable oxygen molecules and a higher level of oxygen in the blood (which will ajutasi of the immune system) instead of one that will cause free radical damage. Drinking ionized water inside your body bathes in a negatively charged liquid, which promotes rejuvenation of each bodily system at a cellular level. All fresh raw foods also have a negative charge and ORP. Freshly squeezed orange juice carries a negative ORP -50 to 300 ORP (mμ). The smaller the negative number, the better it is for the body; higher the positive number, the worse it is. On average, chlorinated city water has a positive ORP +700 so pretty oxide and should not be consumed. Anything that is oxidized, or has the potential to oxidize another substance, has a positive ORP. Our bodies are constantly attacked by the oxidation radicals in the form of; how much older we are, the need for higher negative ORP. When we drink negatively charged substances such as Ionized Water, this oxidation is retarded and our body cells are in a better position to rejuvenate, or reduce, their age. Water has a low atomic weight (18) and when water is ionized through electrolysis, it becomes the most absorbent and antioxidant known. In essence, reversing the aging process. However, we do not become younger in chronological years, 40 years if we do not we become 20 again. Rather, we hold nivelcelular body in 20 years. This means that the cells that make up my body are as active, productive, communicative and functional as those of 20 years and potentially even better. So I reversed my biological clock, not chronologically. ” More on electrical charge alkaline ionized water that gives benefits and unique properties and implications for the optimal functioning of the organism and living beings.
Alkaline water is super conductive properties. ONLY ionized water has an electrical charge that gives vitality water
Alkaline water is living water.
What is / about living water?
All electrons in water are either spin / rotation left or right. The higher the spin speed the more water left electrons is considered to support the vitality, the living water. Only Alkaline ionized water has this quality.
Did you know that filtering devices-ionization (alkalizing) AlkaViva water were tested in the laboratory to what extent vdea vitality water load (how much life force once the water gets through them), and bought with other waters considered to be living including Kangen Water?
Here’s what the tests revealed water vitality, made in Alberta Canada, click here.
Filtering devices-ionization (alkylation) generating water AlkaViva are true living water, as shown in tests, not words without coverage.
“Alkaline living water is regarded by a number of health professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.” Dr Hidemitsu Hayashi heart surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japaniei
And the water is more alive and more asemantoare living in properties with natural waters as found in the valleys of longevity (we studied) than AlkaViva living water?
Alkaline water is the only water that has a low surface tension. The surface tension is measured in dynes (s). This allows for greater absorption of water and with water of nutrients in the body.
Alkaline water has positive polarity.
Almost all other waters are negative polarity. ONLY positive polarity water can effectively help remove toxins and poisons from the body at the cellular level. Alkaline water can help flush toxins and poisons from your body better and with much less negative effects than any other detox program / protocol.
Alkaline water is very positively perceived by the organism and living beings. This allows the cells to efficiently transmit photons with each other. This function allows the production of vital inter-cellular communication.
Alkaline water is a thousand times healthier for your body than any other water. And proof “is in the pudding,” so to speak. Everyone drinking ionized water or milk in its natural state as glacier / glacier milk, or a quality water ionizer (built with quality materials and parts is that ionizes does birth and not overly optimized) lives in health status “light years” from those who do not.
Did you know that 15% of the population of Japan, drinking alkaline water from water ionizers have a life expectancy of 10 years, in addition, more than those in the United States? And drink ionized water for an average of only 12 years! Think if that would be started drinking ionized water from birth! A glass of ionized water can hydrate the body better than gallons of any water. Let’s face it; comes a time in our lives when we want some people to be estimated us / “guessed” our age a bit lower than they facuto. Instead of looking for new pills or injections that can take to lessen the aging process, maybe it is time to look at other issues at hand with greater impact related to the lifestyle and the things introduce in our body.
Here are some selections that may be of interest to anyone wondering about how it affects an alkaline diet.
“We were born at the high alkaline blood pH 7.44. As we get older, the blood pH drops to 7.35 or below. Blood pH referred to here is the artery pH Blood. difference of 0.09 pH seems very small, but because the pH is a logarithmic, an amount of hydroxyl ion (OH-) at pH 7.44 is 1.23 times higher than pH 7.35, as 10 = 1.2303. ”
“In some extreme cases, the accumulation of acidic elements are so great that begin to destroy healthy cells around them. Healthy cells must maintain a slightly alkaline pH level. Some cells change their metabolism and functions in order to survive in an acid environment. This is the start of cancer. are acidic in cancer cells while normal cells are alkaline. Although the cancerous tumors are removed surgically or completely destroyed by other means (chemotherapy, radiation but only alternative anti-tumor) as long as they remain under the acidic conditions in the area, chances are that new tumors will develop around aceeleaşi areas.
Exactly where waste accumulates may vary depending on each individual. However, parts of the body where waste accumulates can determine what kind of disease a person may develop in the first place. ”
“Because the accumulation of waste within the body and dauunele caused by free radicals / oxidative damage are strongly correlated with the aging process, helping the body to prevent damage and escape of waste ixidare old the anti-aging process.”
Sang Whang, in his book “Reverse Aging” / “Rejuvenation”
“In general, degenerative diseases are the result of the accumulation of acid waste in the tissues. When we are born, we have the highest concentration of alkali and also body pH is higher. Since that time, the normal process of life is to gradually acidify. That is why these degenerative diseases do not occur when they are very young.
“Rejuvenation” requires two distinct phases: chemical and physical
The first step is to reduce the acidity of the body so as to eliminate acid waste in the blood and cellular fluids safely and easily.
The second step is to remove all of the old waste deposited in the blood stream so that they can be discharged from the body. ”
Alkaline ionized water is highly alkaline pH.
It may be from 100 to thousand times more alkaline than all of the other waters. (PH is a logaritmic scale / measure . The difference between pH 7 and pH 8 is exponential) Alkaline water removes acidosis / over-acidity in the body, the environment installs all diseases and the cause of most diseases (including cancer , heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, bone and joint diseases, infectious diseases and many others)

Comparing Ionized Water Filters with Other Methods Of Water Treatment
It is difficult to directly compare Ionizing Water Filters with other forms of water filtration because a water ionizer is so much more than a water filter. However as many customers have asked us to do so, we present below our comparisons, based on many individual tests and research.
Charcoal Water Filters utilize charcoal derived from coconut husk as a water filter medium. This absorbs impurities as the water passes through. This form of water filter comprises possibly 95% of those in use domestically, because they are simple to install, relatively economical, and filter out the most deadly of water contaminants, Cryptosporidium and Giardia. An average charcoal water filter will last a family 6-9 months. Some charcoal water filters are enhanced by the use of activated silver, which provides extra antibacterial protection. Minerals in solution can still permeate a charcoal water filter. These minerals are essential to health.
• effectively remove pollutants (herbicides, pesticides, solvents); • remove chlorine; • does not remove useful mineral; • improve the taste of water; • reduced cost; • suitable for water from the public network; • very common.
• lose effectiveness over time; • may allow the development of anaerobic bacteria • does not remove bacteria and viruses that may be inwater; • does not filter the water form heavy metals.
KDF water filters
• Effective water at high temperature; • are recyclable; • Remove heavy metals; • remove chlorine; • inhibit bacterial growth.
• do not remove pollutants (herbicides, pesticides, solvents); • Do not remove bacteria and viruses that are in water.
Reverse Osmosis water filters use a fine membrane to filter through osmotic process. They take everything out of the water, leaving pure water . Usually installed under-sink, they require a serviceman to come every few months to install a new membrane.
note: Water filtered with reverse osmosis is NOT healthy to drink .Dangers of reverse osmosis filtered water click here, here(update link ) & here( update link)
Distillers use electricity to heat tap water to boiling point. Impurities are left in the boiling container and the purified water condensate drains back into a clean container. They require a fair degree of power and cannot give immediate supply, because the boiling process must be completed before water is available.
• do not remove pollutants; • do not remove chlorine; • high price and high maintenance cost; • very slow filtration process 2-10 liters of water per hour; • filtered water collection tank required; • de-mineralized water; • electricity consumption; • high consumption of water: 3-8 litersper liter of purified water; • need to be connected to the carbon filterremineralization and active filters .
note: Like Reverse osmosis filltered water, distilled water is NOT healthy to drink .Dangers of distilled water click here, here(update link ) & here( update link)
UltraViolet water filters use a UV light to kill bacteria in the water. They are very seldom seen in domestic units because of the problem of keeping the light clean. Some water ionizers have small UV lights fitted but they have been shown to have little or no effect.
• Sterilizes water;
• limited lifetime of the bulb; • require careful monitoring of operation bulb; • not effective if the water contains turbidity; • complementary to different systems of water filtration.
Ceramic water filters
• used as portable water filters.
• do not remove chlorine; • do not remove pollutants; • require periodic washing of the filter.
Backflush water filters: Every now and then a ‘new’ system appears on the market claiming to offer extremely long life without water filter changes. This is usually a backflush system. There are no proven long-term backflush systems on the market – probably because their claims of long life without water filter change never live up to the facts. They are almost always two to four times the cost of the basic charcoal water filter unit, but justify this by their claims of longevity.
None of these groups provide ionization
OTHER FORMS OF WATER TREATMENT
There are many forms of water filters and all have some merit. These include:
Fundamentally, this involves passing the water over or through a magnetic field. This has the effect of rearrangement of ions. Without the fundamental ‘splitting’ of ions that occurs in the Water Ionizer (H2O to OH- and HO) lasting change is not possible, although many claims are made by the manufacturers. Free standing magnetic water filtration units do not filter the water or change it’s pH. We have tested units that utilize magnetism and have found a wide variation in results.
Energetic water filters
These are usually attached at the entry of water to the home. They ‘align’ the water using various methods based to varying degree on the works of Viktor Schauberger, a pioneer in water research. Although they do ‘soften’ the water, they do not change the pH or the REDOX (Positive or negative charge) of the water, nor do they filter the water. In our experience, water filters attached to systems with previously installed Energizers work extremely well.
Vortex water filters
A number of units use vortex flow of water prior to output. They also appear to soften the water, but do not filter, ionize or change the REDOX potential of the water .
The most well known of these is MICROHYDRIN, a tablet that when added to water, changes the REDOX dramatically. Normal dose requirement per person is 4 per day at about $0.50 each.
A new entry to the market is “Unique Water” which is ordinary spring water with added magnesium carbonate. This wholesales at $0.55 per 600 ml bottle, and for minimum recommended therapeutic use, two bottles per person per day is recommended. For a family of four this comes to $1584 per year and slightly less than 3,000 plastic bottles per year. The water is not ionized.
Pi Water filtration
PiWater is the combination of conventional water filtration (sand bed, charcoal) with magnetic, mineral addition and FIR (Far InfraRed) energetics. It acts like a standard countertop water filter but it also adds beneficial minerals to the water, changes the molecular structure, magnetizes and energizes using a unique form of ceramics. The Pi-Filter will last up to 3 years with normal use before needing replacement.
water filters with resins -ion exchange
• retain lead and other heavy metals.
• filtering is used in combination with activated carbon to complete the spectrum of the filter.
These above are some of the technologies filtration water purification and processing common today.
The range of domestic water filters for AlkaViva water ionizers is wide and can solve any problem your water may have
All filters water filters AlkaViva excellent water contaminants and keeps the body essential minerals naturally present in water(we even a water remineralization over 70 minerals (calcium, cesium, potassium, rubidium, etc.) for depleted mineral waters) and most technologies include filtering / processing machine of the above water as well as others such as tourmaline, which involves:

AlkaViva Ionized Water Cristals under the Microscope of Dr Masaru Emoto
Have you ever asked yorself what is structured water, hexagonal shape water, “snowflake” water , how it is made and what is the link with…human emotions?
Details(including images & videos ) below.
We’re pleased to announce the testing of AlkaViva(ex Ionways) / EmcoTech (ex Jupiter) Water Ionizers by Dr Masaru Emoto!
Dr. Emoto tested alkaline ionized water from a EmcoTech (Jupiter) water ionizer – results below. The EmcoTech Ultra Delphi uses the exact same water cell technology as in the unit that was tested.
M. Emoto, Doctor of Alternative Medicine, was introduced in the 1990’s to microclustered water (ionized water) and to the technology of Magnetic Resonance Analysis. He then began a quest to uncover the mysteries of water. Renowned internationally, Emoto has published several volumes of Messages from Water, containing photographs of water crystals. His work has also been featured in the film “What the Bleep…”
Experiments consist of exposing water to different words, pictures or music; then freezing and examining the aesthetics of the resulting crystals with microscopic photography.
“We have observed various kinds of water crystals in our laboratory and have found that water containing minerals and in a healthy balance tends to turn out well-ordered hexagonal crystals. Energetically speaking, we believe that water needs to have good Hado to create a beautiful crystal. “
The images of AlkaViva ionized water on this page were taken by Mr. Emoto April 12, 2007. They show Tokyo tap water before and after being passed through a Jupiter Orion ionizer.
“Deepen your understanding and interest toward water when you see the photographs that are reported here.” (Dr.M. Emoto )
BEFORE (Tap Water)
AFTER (ionized water from Orion Ionizer)
Client: ION LIFE alkaline ionized Water Sample: Jupiter Orion Water Ionizer Photography Conditions: -25 degrees Freeze Time: 4 hrs Observation Temperature: -3 degrees Apparatus: Olympus Optical Microscope
The water ionizer that created this crystal has been advanced to a newer model and the same more advanced water ionization technology is found in AlkaViva Ultra-Delphi water ionizer
Mr. Emoto has added watermarks to the crystal pictures created and authorized by his laboratory at I.H.M. If you are in doubt about whether a water crystal picture is authentic, ask the vendor of a water system that displays advertising or a website with water crystal photographs for their watermark and letter of authorization from Mr Emoto. Unfortunately there are many imitators, often very actively displaying unauthorized crystal photos. Also, ask if the model you are interested in has been tested by Mr. Emoto, and what is the authorization number. The I.H.M authorization number for these images is ihm0705090676.
This is the first time Dr. Emoto has tested alkaline, ionized water from a water ionizer.
From the Hado Institute:
“Water is one of the most indispensable substances for the life of human beings. Let’s think about the water inside our body. Generally, it is said that about 90% or more of the embryonic body is water. Regarding an infant, about 80% of its body is water and an adult 70%. As we grow older, the percentage of water in our body decreases.”
The fact that Distilled Water is not like rain water has also been shown by Dr. Emoto using Magnetic Resonance Analysis (see image above). While rain water contains oxygen and minerals and crystallizes into snow flakes, distilled water has no crystalline structure and becomes highly acidic once exposed to air.
“It is not enough to take in a necessary quantity of water inside the body, but we should take the quality of water into consideration. For instance, the district where a lot of long life people live is blessed with high quality from natural resources. In other words, it is becoming common sense that there are a lot of correlations between the health and the quality of water which we drink every day.
Today, even if the water that we drink or use does not contain any detrimental ingredient, the quality of water is not always satisfactory. It is becoming clear that the formation of water crystals reflects the quality of the water. I would be pleased if you would deepen your understanding and interest toward water when you see the photographs that are reported here.”
President of I.H.M. General Institute,
What are the benefits of alkaline ionized water for sports and what unique advantages holds ionized water compared with other alkaline water types ?
To fully understand what happens after exercise and why the body needs negative ions found in alkaline ionized water must read the article about what water ionization means . In short , the result of every move made ( which occurs with energy consumption ) is a positively charged body . molecules in your body are allowed to hold a positive charge. They are unavailable for future ‘ couplings ‘ unless we get a new batch of negative attractive ions quickly .
We will discuss next more common issues about ionized water (not only alkaline water ) and sports such as rehydration up to 6 times faster , remineralization of the body , delivery of active oxygen responsible for energy production , providing preventive antioxidants that protect against oxidation when cells are subjected to produce energy using oxygen.
Most people in general don’t drink enough water and it is a shame as nothing else hydrates like water. In fact, nothing hydrates like ionized water.
There is a new sports drink available from your own kitchen tap… innovative, smart, super antioxidant, rich in active oxygen, rich in alcaline minerals and super hydrating. It’s called ionized restructured water and it’s not sold in bottles anywhere. This water is available only from your own tap, whether you live in the city or the country. Similar to glacier or high mountain stream water, it’s ionized alkaline water made from your tap water !
The New York Yankees use ionized alkaline water during training and during their games! Teams that implement this new technology train harder, longer, and recover in a fraction of the time. They see more flexibility and fewer injuries. It’s the next big wave. Sports teams across the country and in Canada and Mexico are picking it up. High school athletic teams, professional sports teams, men and women’s amateur teams, olympic trainers and athletes…
“Running tap water through a water ionizer creates a miracle that can help put your body into a position of health you never imagined you could achieve.” from Bob McCauley (The Miraculous Properties of Ionized Water) It’s electrically charged with MANY extra negative hydrogen ions and alive with electrons which your body craves. It’s a liquid antioxidant, which is why we can call it the best substance that you can ever put into your body.
Learn more about this new sports drink called ionized water and how you, your family, and your team can benefit. Learn why Shan Stratton, the nutritional counselor for the New York Yankees for the past 14years, has recommended and implemented the use of ionized water for the Yankees and Diamond Backs.
Read “What Every Athlete Needs to Know About Restructured Ionized Water” – by Wade T. Lightheart. Mr. Lightheart is a three time national body building champion out of Canada and has authored four or five training books that are well respected and easy to read.
He says,“Adding restructured ionized water to your current regimen will amplify your results and makeyou less likely to crash and burn... I guarantee it.” He says drinking “freshly made ionized, alkaline restructured water will absolutely improve your performance… For young athletes, please listen up – drink ion-rich restructured water instead of the acid-producing sports drinks. You’ll be amazed at the difference in your energy, your performance, and your recovery time.”
From: “Optimum Sports Nutrition—Your Competitive Edge”, by Dr. Michael Colgan
“The most important nutrient in your body is plain water. The quality of your tissues, their performance, and their resistance to injury, is absolutely dependent on the quality and quantity of the water you drink. And you have to drink it constantly. Light exercise in a temperate climate uses half a gallon of water a day in breath, sweat and urine. Athletes in heavy training use over two gallons a day….
You have just finished a tough endurance event. How do you get your body back to normal? First, and most important you are dehydrated. Second, your stomach is in a highly acid condition and almost empty. Third, your muscles are loaded with the debris of metabolism. Fourth, your glycogen reserves are depleted. Fifth, and least important, you are in electrolyte overload, because the percentage of body water lost is much greater than the percentage of body minerals lost. Rehydrate immediately by drinking plain cold water. Sip, don’t gulp. Coax yourself, because the thirst response is still inhibited after performance.”
“Your muscles work well only in a narrow range of almost zero acidity. Your arterial blood works best with no acid at all…As you begin to exercise, the increased use of muscle glycogen for energy produces lactic acid and pyruvic acid. These acids contain a lot of hydrogen ions (H+), which drive muscle and blood pH level down into the acid zone.
The harder you exercise, the quicker you go acid. As muscle pH level drops below 6.5, the acidity disrupts all sorts of links in the energy chain…Acidity also reduces muscle power directly by inhibiting the contractile action of muscle fibers.
So the first thing that a successful ergogenic supplement has to do is reduce the accumulation of acidity in exercising muscle. You can put all sorts of other chemicals into the bloodstream, but unless you reduce acidity during exercise, your muscles will tie up.”
From: Research by Drs. T. Watanabe and Y. Kishikawa
“Alkaline ionized water (AKW) is used for the purpose of supplementing electrolytes and water lost by perspiration during exercise and for preserving health, because AKW is easily absorbed by the body and is excellent at regulating osmotic pressure in vivo.
From: “Confessions of a Body Builder” by Bob McCauley
“Ionized water is a powerful antioxidant that provides our body with an abundance of oxygen, which gives us energy…It balances our body pH…it is a powerful detoxifier and superior hydrator, up to six times more hydrating than conventional water.”
Unless your tap needs a clean, your water is probably as good as it’s going to get. But if you opt for ionized alkaline water, it increases the pH level of your blood ,delivers active oxygen for energy, antioxidants to protect from free radicals damage , improves hydration and more . In this study, mineral-enhanced H20 drinkers lost fluid at a slower rate than regular water swiggers, delivering improved cardiovascular performance.
The benefits? More energy during exercise and faster recovery afterwards.
What our “alkaline” athletes say:
Michael ‘Rocky’ Katsidis, champion boxer “The alkaline ionised mineral water …has proved to be a wonderful partner in helping me move through the various stages to achieve a world championship. The ability of the alkaline waters to quickly hydrate my body cells, provide dissolved oxygen, act as an antioxidant, and help metabolise lactic acid buildup, is helping me achieve my goal of becoming a world champion.”
Marj Chipperfield, World Champion
At 82 Marj Chipperfield is a world champion. At this years World Masters Swimming championships in Canada, Marj won two gold (400m individual medley and one kilometer lake swim), two silver (200m backstroke and 100m freestyle) and one bronze (200m freestyle)
.“I have been drinking alkaline ionized mineral water… for the past two years. I simply love the refreshing taste; all the other benefits of increased oxygen content, anti-oxidant abilities, rapid absorption, and its higher pH to neutralize excess acidity are all extra-added bonuses. Thank you,your water is a blessing for the young and old alike.”

Health benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water viewed by Leading Doctors and researchers .
Ben Johnson M.D.
Doctor of Osteopathy(D.O.),Naturopathic Medical Doctor (N.M.D.) Dr.Johnson was featured on the best selling DVD “TheSecret.”
“As an alternative medical doctor and especially treating cancer,the most important psychological issue was emotions,but the most important physical issue was pH.In 1931, Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering that a low oxygen environment in the tissues was the cause of cancer. The cause fora low oxygen level intissue is acid pH.
When I learned about alkaline water,I became very excited.We are now able to inundate a person’s body on a very basic level. Since a body is made up of almost 70 percent water,changing the alkalinity of that water would be a huge accomplishment.
Alkaline antioxidant water changes everything physiologically. It allows the enzyme systems to work the way they should.The alkalinity allows oxygen to get to the tissues.More importantly,it provides ready antioxidants to keep our bodies from rotting and rusting through the process of oxidation.
The alkaline antioxidant water solves two of the major problems that cause aging and disease: low pH and free radicals. It helps you get healthy and stay healthy by the alkalization of the blood and the antioxidant potential or the oxidation reduction potential ( ORP ).
The question is often asked: Who should be drinking the alkaline antioxidant water?The answer is simply, everyone from children to octogenarians.”
Ben Johnson M.D. endorses & recommends Jupiter/ AlkaViva water ionizers
Robert O. Young Ph.D.,N.D.
In his book“The pH Miracle” Dr. Young says it this way: “Those willing to look again, and with clear eyes,will be rewarded with the secrets to permanent health.We can heal ourselves by changing the environment inside our bodies.Potentially harmful invaders then,will have nowhere to grow and will become harmless.”
High pH water,such as the water that comes from a good water ionizer, neutralizes acids throughout the entire body. Since acids underlie all disease entities, nothing makes more sense than neutralizing these acids.
One of my most often quoted statements goes like this: “When the fish is sick, change the water. We don’t feed the fish medicine. We give them clean water.When the cells of our body are sick, we must change the water and fluids in which all cells and tissues are bathed.”
I can’t think of any investment that is better for a person or a family than a good water ionizer.
Robert O. YoungPh.D.,N.D. endorses & recommends Jupiter/ AlkaViva water ionizers
Author of the book“Alkalize or Die”
“I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable.I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone.”“The countless names attached to illness do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause: too much tissue acid waste in the body.”
Theodore BaroodyD.C.,N.D.,Ph.D.,Dipl.Acu endorses & recommends Jupiter/ AlkaViva water ionizers
Hidemitsu Hayashi M.D. HeartSurgeon, Director of the Water Institute ofJapan
Dr. Hayashi believes that ionized water is our best source of antioxidants. “There is no substitute for a healthy balanced diet, especially rich in antioxidant materials such as vitamin C,vitamin E, beta-carotene, and other foods that are good for us. However, these substances are not the best source of free electrons that can block the oxidation of healthy tissue by active oxygen. Water treated by electrolysis to increase its reduction potential is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals. We believe that reduced water,water with an excess of free electrons to donate to active oxygen, is the best solution because the reduction potential of water can be dramatically increased over other antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements and the molecule weight of reduced water is low.”
“Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as amedical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.”
Ionized alkaline water is living water. All electrons in water either spin to the left or the right. High speed of the left spin of electrons is considered to substantiate that the water is vital and alive. Only ionized water has this quality.Did you know that ionized water produced by AlkaViva water ionizers has been tested for vitality/ Lifeforce, in Canada and compared to other “living waters”? Here are the results
“Alkaline living water is regarded by a number of health professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.”Dr Hidemitsu Hayashi heart surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japan
Ionized alkaline water is the only water that has a low surface tension. Surface tension is measured in dynes. This allows for greater absorption of water and nutrients into the body.
Ionized alkaline water has Super Conductive properties. Only ionized water holds an electrical charge. This is what gives water it’s vitality.
Ray Kurzweil Ph.D.
Well renowned author & inventor. Dr. Kurzweil has received twelve honorary Doctorates and honors from three U.S. presidents.
“The most important feature of alkaline water produced by a water alkalinizer is its oxidation reduction potential (ORP).Water with a high negative ORP is of particular value in its ability to neutralize oxygen free radicals.ORP can alsobe directly testedusingan ORP sensor and meter. We have conducted these experiments as well. We found that water coming directly from the tap had an ORP of +290mV, while the water coming out of the water alkalinizer had a negative ORP.The more negative the ORP of a substance(that is, the higher its negative ORP),the more likely it is to engage in chemical reactions that donate electrons. These electrons are immediately available to engage in reactions that neutralize positively charged free radicals.This is the key benefit of water produced byawater alkalinizer that is not available by simply drinking water that has had some bicarb or other compounds dissolved in it to make it alkaline.”
Prof. Kuninaka Hironaga, Head of Kuninaka-Hospital, Japan
“Mr. Yamada, the head of Police Research Institute, suffered from severe allergy. He was treated repeatedly by skin specialist, but with no success. Then he started consuming ionized water. The allergyresponded very well and was soon completely cured. No relapse had occurred, although he had taken all kinds of food. He was most grateful and excited about this treatment.
As for myself, I had also suffered severe allergy. Ever since I began to consume ionized water, the allergy has recovered. Since then, I started a research on the effectiveness of ionized water.
I discovered that most allergies is due to acidification of body condition and is also related to consuming too much meat and sugar. In every allergy case, the patient’s antioxidant minerals are excessively low which in turn lower the body resistance significantly. The body becomes overly sensitive and develops allergy easily. To stabilize the sensitivity, calcium solution is injected into the vein. Therefore, it is clear that the ionized water has ionic calcium, which can help alleviate allergy.
The ionic calcium not only enhances the heart, urination, and neutralization of toxins but controls acidity. It also enhances the digestive system and liver function. This will promote natural healing power and henceincrease its resistance to allergy. In some special cases of illness, which do not respond to drugs, it is found, it is found to respond well to ionized water.”
Prof. Kuninaka Hironage, Head of Kuninaka Hospital
“Too many fats in the diets, which lead to the deposition of cholesterol on the blood vessels, which in turn constrict the blood flow, cause most illnesses such as high blood pressure. In accordance with thetheory of Professor Gato of Kyushu University on Vitamin K (because vitamin K enables the blood calcium to increase), or the
consumption of more antioxidant water, the effectiveness of the increase in the calcium in high blood pressure is most significant. The consumption of alkaline antioxidant water
for a period of 2 to 3 months, I have observed the blood pressure slowly drop, due to the water’s solvent ability, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels.”
Prof. Kuwata Keijiroo, Doctor of Medicine, Japan
“In my opinion, the wonder of ionized water is the ability neutralizes toxins, but it is not a medicine. The difference is that the medicine can only apply to each and individual case. Whereas the ionized water can be consumed generally and it’s neutralizing power is something which is very much unexpected. Now, in brief, let me introduce to you a heart disease case and how it was cured.
The patient was a 35 years old male suffering from vascular heart disease. For 5 years, his sickness deteriorated. He was in the Setagays Government Hospital for treatment.
During those 5 years, he had been in and out of the hospital 5 to 6 times. He had undergone high tech examinations such as angiogram by injecting VINYL via the vein into the heart. He consulted and soughttreatment from many good doctors where later he underwent a major surgical operation. Upon his discharge from the hospital, he quit his job to convalesce. However, each time when his illness relapsed, theattack seemed to be even more severe. Last year, in August, his relatives were in despair and expected he would not live much longer. It so happened at that time that the victim’s relative came across ionized water processor. His illness responded well and he is now on the road to recovery.”
Note: In the United States, cardiovascular diseases account for more than one-half of the approximate 2 million deaths occurring each year. It is estimated that optimal conditioning of drinking water could reduce this cardiovascular disease mortality rate by as much as 15 percent in the United States.
From: Report of the Safe Drinking Water committee of the National Academy of Sciences, 1977
Prof. Kuninaka Hironage, Head of Kuninaka Hospital
“For over 10 years of my experience, my concept toward minerals, especially pertaining to ionic calcium in high blood pressure and other diseases is most significant.
In accordance to the theory of medical Professor Gato of Kyushu University on Vitamin K (because vitamin K enables the blood calcium to increase), or the consumption of more ionized water, the effectiveness of the increase in the calcium in high blood pressure is most significant. Too many fats in the diets, which lead to the deposition of cholesterol on the blood vessels, which in turn constrict the blood flow, cause most illnesses such as high blood pressure.
By drinking ionized water for a period of 2 to 3 months, the blood pressure should slowly drop, because the ionized water is a good solvent, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels.”
David S. Dyer N.M.D.,Ph.D.
“Restructured alkaline water may well be the best element or supplement you can put in your body!Did you know the Japanese have researched this subject for over forty years and have found that drinking restructured alkaline water can relieve or reduce the three main causes for sickness,disease and pre‐mature aging?
Restructured alkaline water made using electrolysis has been consumed by the Japanese for over 40 years and has touched and changed every disease and condition imaginable. I have been using this water for over 6 years and have seen similar results when it is used persistently and consistently.The water is smooth, delicious,hydrating, energizing, permeating,pH balancing and a strong antioxidant.Does this sound like the water you should be drinking?I wish you all good health.. .”
Fereydoon Batmanghelidj M.D.
“I am a researcher. I have researched dehydration for the past 20 years. When I discovered that the solution to most of the disease conditions of our society is not a money maker,I decided to take my information to the public.My research revealed that unintentional dehydration produces stress, chronic pains and many degenerative diseases. Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong.Medicine has based its understanding that it is solid matter in the body that regulates all functions of the body. I have explained scientifically at the molecular level that it is water that regulates all functions of the body including functions of solid matter.75 % of our bodies are composed of water.The brain is 85% water. It is water that energizes and activates the solid matter. If you don’t take enough water, some functions of the body will suffer. Dehydration produces system disturbances.When I use the words water cure,I am referring to curing dehydration with water.”
His message to the world is: “You are not sick, you are thirsty; don’t treat thirst with medication.”His ground‐ breaking book, “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water”, has been translated into 15 languages and has sold over a million copies.
Henri Coanda the Romanian father of fluid dynamics and a Nobel Prize winner at 78 yrs old,spent six decades studying the Hunza water trying to determine what it was in this water that caused such beneficial effects for the body.He discovered that it had a different viscosity and surface tension.
Dr.Patrick Flanagan and others continued the research. They found Hunza water had a high alkaline pH and an extraordinary amount of active hydrogen (hydrogen with an extra electron), with a negative Redox Potential and a high colloidal mineral content.
Similar natural water properties and longevity are found in other remote unpolluted places such as the Shin‐Chan areas of China, the Caucasus in Azerbaijan, and in the Andes Mountains.
There are five locations in the world where scientists have found a type drinking water that exhibits extraordinary physical characteristics and where the inhabitants reportedly live to be over 100 years of age, are in excellent health, have no cancer, no dental caries, are robust and have children in their old age. They are called Hunzaland in the Karkorum Mountains just north of Pakistan in the Himalayas, the Vilcambamba in Ecuador, a high mountain valley in Georgia, Russia, another in Mongolia and the final one in Peru. Though all these areas have different cultures and diets, they all have one thing in common – their water has similar properties.We studied them & tried our best to replicate them!

This functional water technology was first developed in Japan in the early 1950’s and the experiments were first conducted on plants and animals.
Full scale development started in 1954 by several agricultural universities on the effects of ionic water,especially acid water,on plants; experiments by Japanese doctors followed, using alkaline ionized water on their patients.
The first ionizers were large units used in hospitals.
Following efforts by Japanese medical doctors,the water ionizer was approved for medical therapeutics by the Japanese Ministry of Health and Rehabilitation in January 1966. Later they were also approved as medical devices by the government of South Korea.
Some 30 million people in Japan have used a water ionizer over the last 40 years.
Sherry Rogers M.D.
Dr. Sherry Rogers is a medical doctor in private practice for over a quarter of a century.Her specialty is finding the cause of illness and getting rid of symptoms that are undiagnosable. Dr. Rogers has written books, scientific papers,and taught advanced courses to physicians learning these techniques. She has lectured in six countries and over fifty U.S.cities, and has been interviewed on dozens of television shows and radio programs, as well as having written numerous magazine articles.”No longer is a headache a Darvon deficiency.We now have the tools with which any symptom can be turned around,including many cancers,chemical sensitivity, allergies,and much more. “Alkaline water rids the body of acid waste…After carefully evaluating the results of my advice to hundreds of individuals,I’m convinced that toxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause of degenerative disease.”
Susan Lark M.D.
Dr. Susan Lark, university lecturer and author of “The Chemistry of Success”,says: Drinking four to six glasses of alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over‐acidity and over time will help to restore your buffering ability. Alkaline water should be used when conditions of over‐acidity develop,such as cold,flu or bronchitis. Like vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene,alkaline water acts as an antioxidant because of its excess supply of free electrons. This can help the body against the development of heart disease,strokes, immune dysfunctions, and other common ailments.”
