Calcium in ionized alkaline water When filling your cup with alkaline ionized 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 alkaline water machine. There is no problem with drinking this ionized alkaline water as it is mostly calcium which is not harmful to consume. When high alkaline ionized 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 water ionizer pH to a lower level which will reduce the possibility of calcium bonding. Calcium flakes form by bonding with molecular hydrogen which is abundant water ionizer gas generated in alkaline ionized water. The presence of calcium is a sign that the water ionizer alkaline water machine 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.
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 ) this alkaline ionized water is for drinking (pH <10) or for washing machine / laundry, fruits and vegetables washing , cooking etc – details below
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 ; details below
A WATER IONIZER PURIFIER AND ALKALIZER MACHINE PRODUCES IN FACT MORE THAN 3 KINDS OF WATER:
Alkaline ionized Water (hydrogen water) ( a water ionizer pH levels range from about 7.5 to about 10.5-11 (we obtained above 12 pH with the alkaviva Delphi H2 water ionizer in Tenerife – the best water ionizer on the market!) on the alkaline side . Alkaline ionized water is harder than any other water to store in such a way as to keep the pH / ORP qualities. Therefore An entire page to show you exactly how to store alkaline ionized water well.
Filtered / purified water (not ionized water , usually neutral pH water (it will have the same pH as your source water). For babies and toddlers it’s best to use filtered / purified water which is neither alkaline nor acidic. pH range 7-8. Also, when you are taking medication filtered water is best as alkaline ionized water increases nutrients and supplements adsorption.
Acid ionized water: If you set your water ionizer unit on and Acidic-level, alkaline ionized water [which is drinkable by the way] will come out the bottom water ionizer hose, Otherwise, acid ionized water comes out of the bottom water ionizer hose or spout when you are pouring alkaline ionized water. Acidic ionized 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, hydrogen rich is the perfect drinking water. It will help to neutralize the acidity of the body and slightly alkalize the body as well as act as an antioxidant and antiinflammatory agent . 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 molecular hydrogen in 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 alkaline water you are drinking with taking your vitamins. Micro clustered, ionized alkaline water will assist in the best and fastest absorption of vitamins into your body.
Illness: If you’re new to ionized alkaline 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 alkaline 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.
Cleaning & Laundry using highly alkaline ionized water:
At the highest levels of alkalinity [10.5 – 12 pH] the ionized alkaline 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.
High alkaline ionized water also has another great use as a stain-remover. Some water ionizer consumers report have 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 – use ionized water high alkaline for laundry in the washing machine( don’t put the water ionizer in the washing machine, just the high alkaline ionized water 🙂 ) .
Here are some other ionized water home use ideas for using the highest water ionizer pH water 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.
water ionizer for laundry / washing machine : You can pour 2 – 4 gallons of high alkaline ionized water in the washing machine for laundry and not need to use detergent.
You can use high alkaline ionized water to clean windows and other greasy areas, , floors, stoves and countertops.
WHEN TO USE JUST FILTERED/PURIFIED 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 water, until they are about 2 years old. After that, you can slowly introduce them to ionized alkaline 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 water ionizer pH level as an adult.
ACIDIC IONIZED WATER [OXIDATIVE IONIZED WATER]
Skin and Hair & acid ionized water: Acidic water at the 3 – 4 water ionizer 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.
Please note that alkaline ionized hydrogen rich water is also great for the skin ( does not matter if you use alkaline ionized water internally or eternally ) below are some clinical trials:
use the water ionizer for 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 acid ionized water at a water ionizer 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.
water ionizer for laundry/ washing machine – Acid ionized water as Laundry Softener: Add acid ionized 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.Also use acid ionized water for windows rinse
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 contANTIBACTERIAL EFFECT OF ELECTROLYZED/IONIZED WATER ON ORAL BACTERIA
water ionizer working principle : alkaline ionized water – what is it? And what is water ionizer pH & hydrogen H2? 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 :
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!

‘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
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.
