What are a water ionizer (health) benefits ?
water ionizer – how does it work?
water ionizer defined / definition:
The water ionizer unit, about the size of a bread maker, is an electronic water filter connected to your (kitchen) water supply to perform controlled low voltage electrolysis /ionization on input (tap) water before you drink it or use it in the kitchen for cooking or cleaning.
After water ionizer installation a special attachment redirects input (tap) water out of the faucet through a plastic water ionizer hose into the water ionizer purifier and alkalizer machine .
A water ionizer purifier and alkalizer machine usually has 2 key parts:
1 . first a water ionizer filtration system (1 or 2 water ionizer filters) that cleans the tap water or water you put into your water ionizer purifier unit
2. second a ‘ water ionizer alkalizer ‘system composed composed from a water ionizer chamber ( here is where the water ionizer platinum plates /electrodes are located and water electrolysis / ionization /takes places hydrogen gas is generated more or less depending on water ionizer chamber membranes) controlled by a electronic water ionizer circuit board/ ‘ a dedicated microcomputer, to ensure the exact result time after time.’ – this electronic part takes your alkaline/ purified / acidic water commands and tells the water ionizer chamber what to to with the filtered water that enters it .
By water electrolysis the input filtered water (that enters the water ionizer chamber and comes in contact with the water ionizer platinum plates ) is split into 2 output streams :
- ionized alkaline water that is also antioxidant due to molecular hydrogen gas dissolved in it via electrolysis ( a water ionizer is a generator of hydrogen in water ) and has many clinically proven benefits in various health conditions – a lot of science , research , studies on this topic( usually water ionizer health benefits range from cancer , diabetes , pressure ulcers, weights loss , sports to ionized water for kidney disease / kidney failure / dialysis and much more – alkaline ionized water is good for you ) – we think clinically proven alkaline ionized hydrogen water benefits are more objective than testimonials or consumer reports ; this alkaline ionized water is for drinking (pH <10) . Does alkaline ionized water from ionizer have any side effects / negative effects ? If the water ionizer pH is lower than 10 there are no water ionizer health risks that we are aware of so far (please read the link above hydrogen water safety – you will also find answers regarding water ionizer benefits,water ionizer research, water ionizer study etc ) . If the water ionizer pH is above 10 please do not drink this ionized alkaline water (at least not for a very long time ; rather use this highly alkaline ionized water for cleaning you laundry / washing machine , fruits, vegetables and cooking- ionized water how to – click)
2 . acid(pH<7) ionized water that is oxidative and is usually used externally for disinfecting wounds, skin, eczema or surfaces as strongly acid ionized water kills bacteria : you can use acid ionized water to rinse hair , clean windows and other surfaces ; for more details about acid ionized water home use -acidic ionized water how to- click
The reduced alkaline ionized water (antioxidant hydrogen water) comes out of the faucet, and the oxidized acid water comes out of a separate water ionizer hose leading into the sink. You can use the reduced water for drinking or cooking.
We drink the alkaline ionized water and we apply the acid ionized water externally (did you know that water ionizers were used in Japan for acid ionized water disinfection before becoming aware of the rest of health benefits ) . How simple and how wonderful! I hope I have answered some of your questions regarding things like ‘is a water ionizer good or bad’, what are a water ionizer health benefits / water ionizer health risks / negative effects? water ionizer home use , ionized water truth or fiction ? in case I didn’t please read below

water ionizer pH
The pH scale ranges from 0 on the acidic side to 14 on the alkaline, and a solution is neutral if its pH is 7.
At pH 7, water contains equal concentrations of H+ and OH- ions. Substances with a pH less than 7 are acidic because they contain a higher concentration of H+ ions.
The pH scale is a logarithmic scale, so a change of one pH unit implies a tenfold shift in the concentration of hydrogen ions.
pH 6 means you are ten times more acid than pH 7.
pH 5 means you are a hundred times more acid than pH 7
The Importance of Balancing pH
Living things, including humans, are extremely sensitive to pH.
Blood plasma and other fluids that surround the cells in the body have a pH of 7.2 to 7.45.
A blood pH of 6.9 can induce coma and death. That is why all bodily systems are secondary in importance to the system of pH balancing. Your body will willingly shut down digestion, alter temperature, rob your bones of calcium, deprive your pancreas, just to maintain adequate fluid buffers of alkalinity to balance the `acid tide` we inflict upon ourselves through diet and stress etc.
However your body possesses numerous special mechanisms to aid in stabilizing these fluids so that cells will not be subject to appreciable fluctuations in pH.
Substances which serve as mechanisms to stabilize pH are called BUFFERS.
Buffers have the capacity to bond ions and remove them from solution whenever their concentration begins to rise. Conversely, buffers can release ions whenever their concentration begins to fall, thus helping to minimize the fluctuations in pH. This is an important function because many biochemical reactions normally occurring in living organisms either release or use up ions.
Imagine now what a load is taken off your body if its primary safety system of pH balancing can be `stood down` from a continual `full alert` because you now are alkalizing your body through reducing stress, eating healthier foods, avoiding harmful chemicals and drinking adequate amounts of clean, healthy ionized alkaline water!
Alkaline ionized water restores the body’s pH balance
Alkaline ionized water includes a powerful antioxidant – molecular hydrogen
Alkaline ionized water is a strong source of anti-oxidants since it contains an abundance of free electrons which can be donated to the body in order to neutralize free radicals.
But what exactly is oxidation? Think of what happens to a slice of apple left out on the counter for a few hours: it turns brown due to exposure to unstable oxygen molecules in the air. Inside our bodies, our cells are also continuously subjected to oxidation due to the presence of oxygen free radicals, which are unstable molecules desperately seeking electrons for stability. Free radicals have been scientifically proven to cause cellular and DNA damage that contribute to aging and can lead to the onset of various diseases.
Alkaline ionized water(AIO) or Electrolisys Reduced Water (ERW) is most efficiently produced by using an electric water ionizer & alkalizer . 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 1000 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.
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.
