Water Quality Impacts Ionizer Performance

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:

Extreme Water Quality Tolerances

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 ]

Other Considerations

 

water Softeners

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).
  • Install an AlkaViva Remineralization Cartridge after the ReverseOsmosys system (an easy solution).

Soft Water Treatment Solution

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.

Well Water

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.

Important Notes:

  • 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.

 

Water Ionizer Cleaning Systems: Why DARC II auto cleanse is the best electrode cleanse

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.

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.

Water Ionizer cleaning with White Vinegar

Water Ionizer cleaning using citric acid / White Vinegar as water ionizer cleaner

 

Although AlkaViva water ionizer company(exclusive distributor of best brand water ionizer companies :  EmcoTech water ionizers (ex Jupiter Science) / Ionia water ionizers & BionTech water ionizers) have the most advanced water ionizer cleaning systems for electrode / water ionizer plates responsible for water electrolysis / ionization of water (MARC, DARC, DARC II , the water ionizer cleaning system  used in Samsung Vesta water ionizer, etc.) that prevent any mineral deposits / buildups from hard water on the water ionizer chamber platinum plates (the water ionizer chamber is the heart of any water ionizer!!) and makes AlkaViva water ionizers the most durable in the industry of water ionizers ( and  simply the best water ionizers on the market)  , because hard water mineral deposits can buildup on other parts or internal parts that are less critical , AlkaViva water ionizer repair / service department for water ionizers presents below  a simple method for internal water ionizer cleaning  using white vinegar/citric acid, that should be done periodically at home by any user who wants to protect his/her investment in a water ionizer.

If there is very little water coming out the water ionizer hose that drains into the sink (the grey acid  water ionizer hose), the water ionizer alkaline water machine may need cleaning because of mineral build-up on the water ionizer plates / electrodes.

This usually does not become an issue for until at least 12-24 months of water ionizer use.

The safest way to clean the water ionizer and alkalizer so as not to damage the water ionizer plates/ electrodes in the water ionizer chamber is to recirculate WHITE VINEGAR/citric acid through the water ionizer system using a small fish tank pump or small water-garden pump ($15 — $40).

Here is how to perform a water ionizer vinegar flush:

1. Unplug the Water Ionizer unit from the electrical outlet.
Remove as much water from the Water Ionizer and purifier by blowing through the silver water ionizer hose,  inlet water ionizer hose and acid ionized water hose  – please refer to water ionizer installation DVD for details.
Also remove the water ionizer filter and shake as much water from it as you can then replace the water filter. The water filter must be securely placed in the Water Ionizer for cleaning the water ionizer in this method – the water ionizer circuit must not be interrupted

2. Prepare a container of WHITE VINEGAR for the water pump.
Attach the INLET water ionizer hose to the water pump. Depending on the water pump you purchase, this may require some minor modifications so that the water ionizer hose will fit into the pump properly.
Submerge the water pump into the white vinegar.

3. Plug the small fish tank water 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 water ionizer hose / tube and acid water ionizer hose into the white vinegar container so the entire water ionizer circuit system is recirculating.

5. At first, there may be very little flow through the silver water ionizer hose. However, as long as the slightest amount of vinegar is flowing through the silver water ionizer hose , the vinegar will eventually dissolve the calcium that is blocking the water from flowing out the water ionizer system .

6.Water Ionizer cleaning takes about  2-12 hours depending on how much calcium and other minerals have been deposited on the water ionizer platinum plates/ electrodes in the water ionizer chamber or on the water ionizer hoses that are in(ternal) the water ionizer circuit system .

7. Reattach the Water Ionizer hose to your water source and flush the water ionizer unit with clean water for 10-20 minutes to clean out the vinegar from the water ionizer system.

8. Begin using the Water Ionizer purifier and alkalizer again.

Calcium buildup on the water ionizer platinum plates / electrodes  in the water ionizer chamber causes the pH of the ionized alkaline water to drop because the source water is not coming in contact with the water ionizer platinum plates / electrodes. Once your Water Ionizer is cleaned using this method, the pH of the ionized alkaline water will be higher because the water is now coming in direct contact with the clean water ionizer plates/ electrodes.

Tip: You can also remove the silver water ionizer hose from the water ionizer 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 water ionizer alkaline side of the Water Ionizer alkaline water machine is because the high pH of the alkaline ionized water causes the minerals in the alkaline ionized water to precipitate out of the water and become displaced.

The water ionizer alkaline water machine must be unplugged from its power source while performing water ionizer vinegar flush in this manner.

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 :

  1.  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 nutrition facts’:

 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

pH ScaleLiving 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

PEER REVIEWED ARTICLES ON ALKALINE DIET BENEFITS FROM INCREASING ALKALINITY IN THE BODY

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.

 

MOLECULAR HYDROGEN

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.
