ionized water – mith or fact

Apa ionizata- Proprietati si Beneficii pentru sanatate demonstrate

Apa ionizata -adevar si/sau  fals .

Introducere

Oricine a fost abordat de cineva ce vinde aparate purificat –  ionizat apa (ionizator cu filtru apa) dorește mai multe informații.

Dar avand in vedere ce reclame pompoase se fac ,cate din acestea sunt si adevarate?

Ca sa va convingeti, dati o cautare pe un motor cautare  gen Google si veti vedea fel de fel de afirmatii ale diversi   promotori de apa ionizata precum : schimbati viata cu apa ionizata, vindeca diabetul si cancerul si “toate bolile”.

Cate din ele sunt adevarate si cate sunt false ?

Internetul este adesea primul lucru la care  oamenii  recurg pentru cercetare, si gasim adesea două extreme: fie oameni care încercearca cu orice pret sa va vanda un aparat de filtrat/purifcat – ionizat apa si il vor ridica in slavi ca fiind solutia magica la toate probleme dvs, fie cei care afirma ca aceastea sunt o fraudă si nu au nici o dovada

Deci,pe cine si ce să crezi cand vine vorba de apa ionizata si aparate purifcat -ionizat apa?

Poate ca cel mai corect si simplu raspuns la prima vedere ar fi sa cautati sa discutati cu CONSUMATORI de apa ionizata( oameni ce folosesc aparate purificat- ionizata apa pentru uz pernsonal si NU vand astfel de produse ) si sa aflati opinia lor, bazata pe experienta lor personala dupa mai multi ani de consum .Acestia nu au interes nici sa  ridice in slavi apa ionizata nici sa o blameze.Cu siguranta acesta este un punct de reper mult mai bun decat vnazatorii sau cei ce neaga total din alte interese.

NOTA AUTORULUI: personal am aflat despre beneficiile apa ionizata intnad in contact cu fosti bolnavi /oameni cu diverse afectiuni care au relatat ca apa ionizata (alcalina si acida) i-au ajutat sa-si depaseasca conditia de sanatate

Totusi, cum fiecare organsim e unic si nu toti suntem construiti la fel deci corpurile noastre nu raspund/reactioneaza  la fel la lucruri identice(deci nici la apa ionizata ),  haideti sa plecam de la ce se cunoaste referitor la apa ionizata si aparate purificat -ionizat apa.

Notiuni precum   apa filtrata / “purificata” minerala – apa minerala FARA contaminanti apa alcalina cu  pH EXTREM de alcalin ,  apa bogata in oxigen activ ,  apa cu  milioane de ioni de hidroxil per pahar si apa ce ofera un puternic ANTIOXIDANT , numit -ORP  , apa structurata cu legături de hidrogen,  apa structurata molecular în grupuri/clustere apa  de 4 – 6  molecule H20 , apa cu  formă  hexagonala( apa fulg de zăpadă -apa Masaru Emoto), apa VIRGINA – apa ” PURA “ (apa a carei  memorie electromagnetica EMF a fost  RESETATA la ZERO) , apa VIE (NUMAI apa ionizata alcalina are această calitate) , apa cu proprietati super conductive ,  apa cu tensiune joasă de suprafață si altele sunt proprietati cunoscute asociate cu apa ionizata , proprietati care fac apa ionizata superioara altor tipuri si surse de apa din zilele noastre, proprietati pe care si  laureatul premiului Nobel, conationalul nostru, Dr Henri Coanda le-a studiat in apele ionizate naturale care apar in vaile nedistruse inca de om: Valea Hunza, Vilcabamba (Euador), Georgia din fosta URSS si alte cateva locuri izolate din lume.

 

DA, corpul uman este 70-80 % apa(deci apa este foarte importanta, mai importanta decat ce mananci si pina nu iti spune cineva ca esti 70-80% apa nu realizezi cat de importanta e apa pentru viata de fapt), DA, apa ionizata de un purificator – aparat apa hidrogenata / ionizator apa de calitate( care are si filtre apa ce elimina toti contaminantii dar lasa o apa pura si minerala si foloseste materiale de calitate precum placi de ionizare apa din platina titan ce necesita putere electrica mica , certificate a nu emite lucruri toxice in apa precum iridium sau nichel (electrozii din otel inox home-made)  si nici platina( precum placile de ionizare apa DIPPED)  ) ajuta/poate ajuta  cu multe  afectiuni si probleme de sanatate, insa de aici si pina la a promova un purificator – ionizator de apa pina la solutia minune pentru toate problemele doar pentru a justifica preturile supraumflate datorate politiclor MLM(sistem piramidal) e drum lung.

Ce este FAPT este ca apa ionizata e folosita in spitale si centre medicale din Japonia, Korea, China si alte tari din Asia ca si tratament adjunvant STANDARD(vorbim ca medicina primara, NU alternativa) cat si pe scara larga –  uz curent de catre oricine de peste 30 ani

  • Știați că 15 % din populația din Japonia, care bea apa alcalina ionizata de la ionizatoare de apa au o speranță de viață de 10 ani , IN PLUS, mai mult decât cei din Statele Unite ale Americii ? Și au băut apa ionizata pentru o medie de doar 12 de ani! Gândiți-vă în cazul în care s-ar fi apucat de băut apa ionizata de la naștere !

Acestea sunt locatiile unde s-au efectuat cele mai multe studii stiintifice si teste clinice cu apa ionizata, lucruri care au inceput sa se petreaca si in tari vestice :

Cateva cuvinte despre cine suntem noi si de unde venim, pentru a intelege de ce vrem sa va prezentam fapte:

EMCO TECH (ex Jupiter Science )- CEL MAI MARE  PRODUCATOR aparate purificat – ionizat apa din LUME

Compania AlkaViva / EmcoTech reprezinta cel mai vechi si cel mai inalt standard de calitate in domeniul aparate ionizt- purificat( filtrat ) apa din LUME si nu isi permite sa cada in mirajul falselor afirmatii in ceea ce priveste beneficii si proprietati apa ionizata si purificata , riscand sa-si pericliteze renumele mondial, renume care in domeniul sanatate alternativa( “vestica”) nu e tocmai usor de obtinut.
Vrem sa va punem la dispzitie tot ce este necesar pentru ca dvs sa cunoasteti tot ce doriti despre apa ionizata :
Mai întâi vom clarifica terminologie esențială. Două măsurători de apă care sunt utilizate pentru a evalua performanta ionizatoare apa  pH și ORP.
1. Ce este pH-ul?
Este o scară de acid-alcalin care variază de la 0 la 14. neutrul este 7. Mai puțin de 7 este acid și mai mare decât 7 este alcalin. Când măsurăm pH apa  ionizata de fapt  măsuram cantității de ioni de hidrogen prezente în apa ionizata. pH< 7, apa ionizata acid se referă la cantitatea de ioni de hidrogen (H + ) majoritari în apa, în timp ce pH-ul>7 apa ionizata alcalina se referă la compuși majoritari care doresc să se lege cu hidrogenul ( OH-) PH-ul este o funcție exponențială. Un pH de 10 este de zece ori mai alcalin ca un pH de 9 și o sută de ori mai alcalin ca un pH de 8, și așa mai departe.
Limitele stabilite EPA pH apa potabila acceptabile pentru consum  sunt între 6,5 și 8,5.
Nu este indicat a se consuma apa cu pH >10.
Proprietatea de pH apa ionizata-adevar sau mit? Adevar.
Poate fi masurat pHul apa ionizata? Desigur.
Cum paote fi masurat pHul apa ionizata? Utilizand fie un pH metru bine calibrat de un laborator certificat si calificat sa faca astfel de calibrari si masuratori sau, daca doriti sa verificati acasa, metoda ‘babeasca’ dar mai precisa decat un pH metru care nu e calibrat corespunzator este cu picaturile reactive functie de pHul apa ionizata care vin impreuna cu orice aparat ionizat-purificat(filtrat) apa AlkaViva (Jupiter) sau cu hartii turnesol reactive functiede  pH apa ionizata.

2 . Ce este ORP apa ionizata?

Acest acronim vine de la Potential de Reducere Oxidare(ORP)
.
Functie de tipul de ionizare apa ales,apa ionizata poate fi apa oxidativa (apa ionizata acida, cu exces de H+) sau apa antioxidant (apa ionizata alcalina, cu exces de ioni OH-)
Caracterul oxidativ/ antioxidant apa ionizata e dat de sarcina electrica ( deficitul sau excesul de electroni ). De exemplu, electronii liberi in exces din apa ionizata alcalina( abundenta de OH- implica un exces de electroni liberi donori) se vor cupla cu radicalii liberi de oxigen si vor anula astfel daunele de oxidare .
Când o moleculă renunță un electron , molecula este oxidata. Pe partea cealaltă a ecuației, atunci cand o molecula are un electron in exces acesta este redusa.
Proprietatea de ORP (caracter oxidativ sau antioxidativ) apa ionizata-adevar sau mit? Adevar.
Poate fi masurat ORPul apa ionizata? Desigur.
Cum paote fi masurat ORPul apa ionizata?  Numai un ORP metru bine calibrat de un laborator certificat si calificat sa faca astfel de calibrari si masuratori .Nu se recomanda testarea acasa cu ORP metre care nu sunt calibrate exact.De foarte multe ori in practica, citirile cu ORP metre acasa s-au dovedit false(fie arata mai mult sau mai putin dar de purine ori exact) ,
Măsurarea ORP implica simplist măsurarea milivolților din apa  creati de molecule care doresc să ia electroni și de molecule care doresc să doneze electroni.
ORP pozitiv indică potențialul pentru mai multe molecule dornice să ia un electron( H+) decât moleculele dornice de a da un electron(OH-). In tratamentul traditional apa cu clor, măsurarea ORP pozitiv poate indica puterea de oxidare a clorului în apa.
ORP negativ indică faptul că există mai multe molecule dornice să renunțe la un electron și sa devina oxidate decât invers(molecule OH > molecule H+). Aceste molecule sunt antioxidanti, deoarece acestea anuleaza molecula de oxidare, oferindu-le ceea ce doresc – un alt electron.
Este teoretizat ca efectul de sănătate de molecule antioxidante este capacitatea lor de a proteja tesuturile organismului de a fi oxidate, se sacrifica prin renuntarea unui electron la oxidant.
 NOTE:
2.a. Cand vine vorba de pH si ORP apa ionizata alcalina,aparatele purificat / filtrat – ionizat apa AlkaViva (IonWays) / EmcoTech ( Jupiter)  sunt garantate pentru a surclasa orice altă marcă, indiferent de pret aparate purificat /filtrat – ionizat apa sau dimensiuni placi ionizare apa si putere electrica aplicata pe placile de ionizare apa. Aparatele purificat /filtrat – ionizat apa AlkaViva (IonWays) / EmcoTech ( Jupiter)  sunt cele PERORMANTE, FIABILE  si DURABILE  aparate purificat / filtrat – ionizat apa din LUME,asa cum rezulta si din testele laborator stat, guvernamental, certificat EPA SUA cat si din practica.

Aparate purificat /filtrat – ionizat apa AlkaViva (IonWays) / EmcoTech ( Jupiter)  necesită mai puțina putere aplicata pe  plăci electrod de ionizare apa  si placi de ionizare  apa mai compacte, ocupa mai puțin spațiu și sunt garantate pentru a depasi in performante ionizare apa orice alta marca de purificator- aparat apa hidrogenata / ionizator apa, indiferent de preț aparat purificat /filtrat – ionizat apa  .
Alte marci de aparate purificat /filtrat – ionizat apa  de ce nu pot prezenta astfel de teste INDEPENDENTE, CERTIFICATE? 
2.b. NU toate ionizatoarele folosesc DOAR electroliza apa pura.Manualul pentru modelul LeveLuk făcută de Enagic® (apa alcalina se numește apa Kangen®)  prevede folosesc un lichid “amplificator electroliză,” deși nu se specifică ce conține. Enagic® folosește, de asemenea, calciu Acid glicerofosforic pentru a crește concentrația de pH.
Uneori(poate chiar de multe ori) unii dealeri Kangen incearca sa induca in eroare afirmand ca ” apa kangen ” este altceva.Totusi acest articol nu isi propune de dezbata “apa kangen”.Adevar si mit apa kangen aici

2.c. Toate ionizatoarele apa AlkaViva pot produce niveluri impresionante de pH si ORP  insa sunt optimizate special pentru PH si ORP sănătoase și benefice(ORP bun la valori 7<pH<10) – veti observa ca desi TOATE ionizatoarele AlkaViva ating niveluri impresionante de PH si ORP, NU pH si ORP extreme va intereseaza ci apa cu proprietati , pH si OPR cat mai apropiate de apa naturala, asa cum se gaseste spre exemplu si in “valea de longevitate” Vilcabamba , Ecuador  pe care AlkaViva a studiato. Exista 5 locatiii in lume  unde cercetatorii au descoperit astfel de ape cu proprietati unice ,unde oamnii traiesc peste 100 ani cu sanatate exceptionala, NU au cancere, NU au nici …carii . Hunzaland in Muntii Karkorum, Vilcambamba in Ecuador, o vale muntoasa Georgia, Russia, alta  in Mongolia si una in Peru. Toate au culturi si diete diferite si un lucru comun – apa lor are proprietati similare! 2008145_48624 Am fost acolo si am studiat.Daca doriti sa stiti mai multe detalii vizualizati DVDul GRATUIT- completati formularul : [contact-form subject=’Valea DVD’][contact-field label=’Email’ type=’email’ required=’1’/][contact-field label=’Comentarii’ type=’textarea’/][/contact-form] Aceasta optimizare este rezultatul a peste 30 ani experiente si cercetari , istorie UNICA, ce ne face LIDERI MONDIALI in domeniul ionizatoare apa   ) care, alaturi de  aprobarile medicale  au facut din aparatele filtrare – ionizare apa AlkaViva si alegerea expertilor internationali in domeniu  precum prof Dr. Robert O. Young , Dr. Ted Baroody , Sang Whang si a multor altor experti si spitale si centre medicale.(a se vedea fila APROBARI 

 
Desigur  pH si ORP sunt indicatori  apa ionizata cei mai cunoscuti,insa nu neaparat cei mai importanti.
După cum a spus lauretul premiului Nobel, Henri Coanda, dupa studii ale apelor intalnite in vai longevitate precum Hunza , apa este benefică atunci când ea are următorii parametri: pH apa 7-9, potențialul redox ORP apa -100mV -700mV,  tensiunea superficială apa 43-45 din/cm și structură hexagonală apa . Există, desigur, alți parametri care trebuie considerati cum ar fi puritate apa,  mineralizare apa , conductivitate apa , vitalitate apa și altele.
In contiunuare dezbatem cateva din cele mai importante(inclusiv pe cele masurate de romanul lauret cu NOBEL, Dr Henri Coanda)
3.De examplu apa alcalina ionizata este apa structurata molecular în grupuri/clustere apa  de 4 pana la 6  molecule H20 .
Rezonanța magnetică nucleară a arătat că aceasta este o treime din dimensiunea moleculara a altor ape , care are grupuri de 10 până la 15 molecule .
Această reducere grup ajuta celulele sa absoarba apa ionizata rapid și eficient pentru ca patrunde si dizolva mai usor, fiind apa redusa in dimensiuni cluster(apa microgrupata)
Demonstratia cea mai simpla a acestui fapt o reprezinta testele cu apa ionizata cu pH > 10 in care uleiul de integreaza in loc sa pluteasca la suprafata, apa ionizata in care fructele si legumele si mancarurile isi lasa chimicalele pe baza de uleiuri, etc
Si acest lucru il veti simti si fizic pe pielea dvs pentru caveti bservacaveti putea bea mai mutla apa-apa nu va “pluti” in stomac.
NOTA: NU se iau medicamente cu apa ionizata alcalina tocmai din acest motiv- se dizolva si se absorb mai rapid
4.Apa alcalina ionizata OXIGENEAZA organismul printr-o creștere a raportului  de oxigen / hidrogen .(abundenta de OH- inseamna un raport mai mare de oxigen raportat la hidrogen fata de cel intalnit in H20) Celelalte ape sunt lipsite de acest beneficiu .Implicatiile acestui lucru sunt multiple pentru sanatate , energie si vitalitate Apa alcalina ionizata oxigeneaza organismul dumneavoastră mai eficient decât orice alt tratament ” oxigen “/terapie ozon  si este usor de administrat si tolerat de organism fata de terapiile ozon ce injecteaza ozon gaz in sange sau alte terapii ozon pe care nu toti le pot tolera sau nu si le permit.
Iarasi,un efect pe care il veti simti pe pielea dvs cand veti avea simptome de raspuns imunitar(simptome de raceala, etc) la trecerea la consum de apa ionizata alcalina.De aceea se recomanda trecerea TREPTATA si NU brusca la apa ionizata alcalina, incepand cu apa  alcalina ionizata foarte putin si crescand gradul de ionizare apa pe masura ce orgasnimul dvs se obijnuieste
5. Apa alcalina ionizata este APA VIE .
Ce este /despre apa vie?
Toti electroni din apă , sunt fie de spin/rotatie la stânga sau la dreapta .  Cu cat mai mare viteza de rotire stânga a electroni cu atat apa este considerata a susține vitalitatea -apa vie . Numai apa ionizată alcalina are această calitate .
PROPRIETATE MASURABILA(REALA)-DA.
Stiati ca aparatele filtrare- ionizare ( alcalinizare ) apa AlkaViva au fost testate in laborator pentru a vdea in ce masura incarca apa de vitalitate(cata forta de viata capata apa odata ce trece prin ele), si cumparate cu alte ape considerate a fi vii, inclusiv cu apa Kangen?
“Apa alkalina vie este privita de un numar de profesionisti sanatate ca fiind cea mai buna apa de baut si este listata ca dispozitiv medical in Japonia pt tratarea bolilor degenerative.”  
Dr Hidemitsu Hayashi Chirurg inima ,  Director al Institutului apa al Japaniei
Acestea de mai sus sunt FAPTE.Exista si proprietati asociate cu apa ionizata ce pot fi contestate (intr-ucat necesita aparatura mai sofisitcata pentru testare) precum
6.Apa ionizata are forma hexagonala- apa “fulg de nea”.
7.Apa alcalina ionizata este  APA  ” VIRGINA “- memorie electromagnetica RESETATA la ZERO .
Tot la ce a fost apa expusa lasă o semnătură de frecvențe electromagnetice sau amprenta electromagnetica(de camp magnetic- EMF).
Frecvențe negative ( exemplu : apa de la robinet reciclate de canalizare ca în majoritatea orașelor mari ) sunt asociate cu boli . Apa ionizata este apa virgina , deoarece memoria camp electromagnetic EMF au fost ” resetata”, deci nu are acele amprente nocive, asociate cu bolile.
8 .FAPT IMPORTANT  insa  este ca sistemele purificat – ionizat apa ar trebui sa ofere o pre-filtrare apa minima pentru îndepărtarea clorului si a altor contaminanti fara a demineraliza apa

water ionizers / purifiers FAQ

Water ionizers & ionized water FAQ

Answers to  frequently asked questions about water ionizers/water purifiers  and water ionization technologies.

My new AlkaViva water ionizer has residual water in it. Is it used? Every NEW AlkaViva water ionizer is extensively tested by the manufacturer(EmcoTech/Jupiter water ionizers) to ensure proper operation before they are shipped to the AlkaViva warehouse. Therefore, there may be residual water drops coming from the bottom hose connectors. Not to worry, your NEW AlkaViva water ionizer/water purifier is not used.

What’s the best way to store alkaline ionized water?

“How can I store ionized water from my water ionizer? What kind of container should I use?” Whether you want to take your water to work or out to play, or whether you just want to chill your alkaline water in the fridge before you drink it, there are some things you should know. 1. ionized water from an water ionizer is best if consumed directly from the water ionizer immediately after producing it.  Ionized water has a high electron charge, which gives it its antioxidant qualities. Time, heat and light can cause the water to lose its charge, and therefore lose the unique properties & benefits of alkaline ionized water. Yes, you’ll still have clean, filtered and mineralized water… but you also want to be able to retain the low negative ORP that is one of the primary reasons for owning a water ionizer in the first place. I always use the analogy of fresh fruits & vegetables wich are best consumed right after they are picked otherwise they lose many valuable healthy benefits . Well, the same goes for ionized water. The same can be said about ionized water. When alkaline water comes out of a water ionizer it contains a negative ORP (an abundance of free, unbound electrons).  When stored in a container the ionized water will begin the process of losing its antioxidant quality as it “normalizes” with its surroundings.  How long that process takes to complete is based on the material and construction of the container that the ionized water is in. The antioxidant power in alkaline ionized water can decline in as little as 24 hours without proper storage, and pH levels would fall in about three days. Stored properly, alkaline ionized water can maintain high potency for about a week.

How To Store Your Ionized alkaline Water \

Glass Glass is always the preferred method of storing alkaline ionized water.

  • If using a glass container, try to use a UV protected glass, which is usually a dark color.
  • Fill storage container up to the top, thus limiting the alkaline ionized water’s exposure to air.
  • Store the container in a cool, dimly lit location. Avoid exposing the ionized alkalien water to heat and sunlight.
  • Drink stored alkaline ionized water within 72 hours for optimal quality and freshness.

Stainless Steel Regular stainless steel bottles are great for keep ionized alkaline water clean, as there is no “leaching” of dangerous chemicals from the container. But, the alkaline ionized water will quickly lose its antioxidant properties as the metal of the container is a conductor of electricity.  Therefore, if you are going to use a stainless steel container, be sure that it is a double-walled vacuum sealed bottle, as those types of bottles will slow down the ORP equalization rate.  Using these types of a bottles not only help to maintain the antioxidant properties of the alkaline ionized water, but are an excellent way to keep the water nice and cold during hot weather.

Plastic containers Plastic should be used as a last resort.for storing alkaline ionized water.  The only plastic bottles you should ever use should be made from certified BPA-free plastic.  Even when using this type of bottle, you are not guaranteed that your bottle will not leach other types of chemicals into your drinking alkaline ionized water.  Therefore, I would stay away from plastic bottles, if at all possible.

Keep Your ionized alkaline Water Refrigerated Refrigeration or freezing helps maintain the potency of alkaline ionized water. The alkaline ionized water should be put in a sealed container, and chilled immediately after it is made.  Also, if you enjoy putting ice in your water I would suggest getting yourself some stainless steel ice trays, and then make ice using your water ionizer water.  You don’t want to use ice that is made from your refrigerator’s ice-maker, as it is likely full of toxins that won’t be removed by the refrigerator filter, including fluoride.

Ionized water Right From The Water Ionizer Is Best There’s nothing more refreshing than a glass of healthy alkaline ionized water. Gotten fresh from a home water ionizer, alkaline ionized water has high negative ORP and a higher pH than plain water.

Drinking alkaline water straight from the water ionizer is always best because the beneficial qualities of the alkaline ionized water remain intact. This is the reason why ionized water cannot be sold as stored , the same reason why miracle waters from Hunza or Vilcabamba cannot be stored & sold. We know – we went to Vilcabamba, Ecuador to meet with the people in the Valley of Longevity and tested their water. If interested, please ask for our FREE DVD on this trip contact us or leave your mail address( we will not share it with anyone)  [contact-form subject=’Valley DVD’][contact-field label=’Email’ type=’email’ required=’1’/][contact-field label=’Comments(optional)’ type=’textarea’/][/contact-form]

Do water ionizers also  remove water contaminants , including fluoride?

This question should be about the water filters used  inside the water ionizers/purifiers. Water ionizers, by themselves, don’t really remove anything from the water. A water ionizer is an electronic device that ionizes water through water electrolysis into ionized  water stremas (alkaline and acidic ).

The question should be regarding water ionizers that include water filters inside them such as AlkaViva water ionizer(manufactured by Jupiter/EmcoTech). AlkaViva’s best water ionizers even include 2 water filters inside the water ionizer/water purifier to filter/remove all the potential contaminants in your water before water is ionized , so that you will enjoy not only ionized alkaline, antioxidant water, but clean yet mineral water as well.Only AlkaViva water ionizers such as AlkaViva Jupiter Athena JS 205 water ionizer & AlkaViva Vesta GL 988 water ionizer include 2 water filters inside the water ionizer /water purifier system. One of these 2 water filters can be a UltraWater Fluoride /Arsenic Shield – a water filter specially designed to remove Fluoride & Arsenic. Our quality Jupiter water ionizers also have water prefilters to prefilter the water before water is ionized. It should be noted that most water filters inside a water ionizer do NOT remove fluoride, because lab testing has shown that fluoride contained in the incoming water happens to “stick” to the acid water stream, and the concentration in the alkaline drinking water side is lessened.  The fluoride is attracted to the positive charge of the acid water, and will be partially eliminated.  But, when we are speaking of fluoride, “partially” is not good enough.  We want to be able to eliminate as much of the fluoride as possible .Why-read more about fluoride in water-click here

What is Ionized Acid Water Acid ionized water can be characterized by the following:

  1. having a pH range between 2.0ph and  lower than 7.0ph
  2. having an ORP of +800 to +1200
  3. having a hypochlorous acid component from 1-30 mg/l
  4. being micro-clustered
  5. being loaded with H+ (hydrogen ions), which acts as an oxidizer

There are 2 types of acid water; mild and strong. ‘Mild’ acid water is used for the skin, hair and nails while ‘strong’ acid water is used for cleaning and sterilizing. Uses Of Ionized Acid Water

How To Get The MOST Acidic ionized Water From Your water Ionizer? Although most water ionizers allow you to choose “acid” ionized water , which would then come out of the top stainless steel hose, there is a way to get the most acidic water from your water ionizer (the lowest pH). Set your water ionizer to the highest “alkaline” ionized water  setting that it will produce.  Then, slow the water flow rate down (either on the faucet or on an onboard flow-control valve, if you have one) to the slowest the water can come out while the water ionizer remains powered on. On most water ionizers with water flow sensors, if you slow the flow rate down too much, the water ionizer will shut itself off – so make sure it is slow, but enough that the main power stays on.  Then, collect the acidic water from the acid hose coming from the bottom of the water ionizer in a (glass) recipeint. Doing it this way will give you the most powerful acid water that your water ionizer can make. The results will vary from water ionizer to water ionizer, depending on the strength of the water ionization unit.

How can I tell what contaminants & other things are my tap water? There is a lot that we can learn about our water just by the way it looks, tastes, and smells. If you are concerned about the quality of your water it is always best to have it professionally tested(contact us of interested in professional water testing ), but we can also discover much about it at home. When using a water ionizer many things in our water can be condensed into higher, more noticeable levels. If you are on a public treated water system you can always ask for a consumer confidence report, or CCR. These are done annually to insure the public of drinking water safety. The easiest way to obtain these reports is to call your local water authority and ask for the most recent CCR.You can also ask them if they are using chloramines as a disinfectant. Chloramines are fairly new in the treatment of water systems in most areas, and may not show up on the report. Chloramines are definitely unwanted, and require a different type of water filtration than the standard chlorine water fitration methods. Although it is a great idea to look at your CCR, you can always take it one step further and have the water at your home tested locally. Keep in mind that the water reports provided are shown in averages and may not reflect exactly what is coming in to your home, so , if you are really interested in what;s in your tap water. it would be a good idea to test the water coming right from your tap If you are on a well water system it is important to test your water before running a water ionizer, as well water is generally untreated and can contain contaminants not present in treated water systems. Testing the water in your well can protect your health, as well as the life of your water ionizer. To obtain a water report you can call your local health authority and express concerns for your drinking water. They will usually have a place locally to do the necessary testing. The test you want to ask for is called “A Routine Domestic Panel,” and doesn’t usually cost an arm and a leg. Water reports will list a bunch of numbers that can be a little confusing, but once you learn to read the report you’ll be able to see exactly what’s in your water. The important numbers to look at will be the levels recorded – this is the amount found in your water – and the MCL, or Max Contaminate Level. In comparing these two sets of numbers you can judge if the levels are safe or should be addressed before using your new water ionizer. If the levels recorded for your water are lower than, or close to, the MCL levels you may want to consider water pre-filtration. You would also want to consider water  pre-filtration anytime you have specific concerns especially in areas with very hard water.Of course, you can always use our AlkaViva Reverse Osmosis System For Water Ionizers to remove the most common water contaminant concerns. We will be covering some basic at-home tests for testing drinking water contaminants, what they are, where they come from and how we can remove them.  There are many things the following tests can tell us, but certainly not everything. For example there is no good way to test at home fluoride, bacteria, arsenic, and many other drinking water contaminants without a professional water test(contact us if interested in a professional water testing). For the contaminates that we CAN test for at home, all you will need is your faucet and a clear glass.

The Way That Water Tastes Chlorine or chemical taste This taste is usually caused by normal chlorination, or an abundance of chemicals in either treated municipal water systems, or chlorinated wells. This is normally removed by your water ionizer internal water filter, but if this is not enough to remove the unpleasant and possibly harmful carcinogens we recommend using our UltraWater ionized water filter

Metallic taste A metallic taste is usually caused by manganese, or other heavy metals. These can be present in well water systems, and older homes with metal pipes. To remove these heavy metals we recommend our UltraWater ionized water filter

Water no longer tastes as sweet as it used to This is caused by the lack of iron present in your source water. Some folks complain that there water no longer taste as sweet as it used to. This is caused by the removal of iron. Although iron is a harmful heavy metal, it adds a pleasant sweet taste to the water. Often, after changing to non metallic pipes or adding a heavy metals pre-filter, the lack of sweetness can be present. Usually after a week or two, it is no longer noticeable.

Water tastes fishy, or earthy The fishy, or earthy taste is generally caused by harmless organic matter and is usually associated with surface water supplies. To remove this we recommend that you regularly change your internal water ionizer filter.

The Way That Water Smells Detergent, or soapy smell Sometimes a septic odor. This is usually an indication that you need to hire a plumber, or call your city water authority. This is caused by the leaking of a sewer system into your water supply, and should be addressed as soon as possible.

Water tastes fishy, or earthy The fishy or earthy smell, again, is generally caused by harmless organic matter and is usually associated with surface water supplies. To remove this we recommend that you regularly change your internal water ionizer filter.

Rotten egg smell from the tap Dissolved hydrogen sulfide gas in the source water, or raw sulfur deposits in a well water situation. Sulfur deposits are naturally occurring, and common in some areas. Dissolved hydrogen sulfide comes as a result of organic matter decomposing in a raw water situation, such as plant matter in a well (think of tree roots). This gas reacts in a water ionizer and can become much more noticeable after ionization, and is condensed into the alkaline stream. To remove this gas we recommend using our UltraWater ionized water filter

Rotten egg odor from hot water only Rotten egg odor from the hot water only is caused by sulfates reacting with magnesium anode rod in your hot water system, which will react to create hydrogen sulfide gas and cause this odor to only be present when using hot water. To remove the rotten egg smell you need to have a plumber replace the anode rod with one made of aluminum.

Chlorine or chemical smell This odor is usually caused normal chlorination, or an abundance of chemicals in either treated municipal water systems, or chlorinated wells. This is normally removed by your water ionizer internal filter, but if this is not enough to remove the unpleasant and possibly harmful carcinogens we recommend using our UltraWater ionized water filter

The Way That Water Looks White stains on cookware and in glasses This is a sign of high alkalinity, which is exactly what we do with our ionizers. Completely harmless and nothing to worry about, but not aesthetically pleasing. An easy way to remove this is too soak in a solution of white vinegar and water. Be sure to rinse all the vinegar off before using.

Suspended stuff in your glass This is caused by sediment. It is common in well water using pumps, and in older homes and neighbor hoods. This can easily removed by your water ionizers internal sediment filter(with ionizers such as AlkaViva Jupiter Athena JS205 water ionizer or AlkaViva Vesta GL 988 water ionizer), or with our External Sediment and Bacteria Reduction Cartridge.(contact us if interested)

Green stains on sinks and fixtures Green stains in your sink or on other household fixtures is caused by acidic water with a pH of 6.8 or lower reacting with brass and copper pipes and fittings. Your best bet is to hire a plumber to update these to a more modern system.

Red or yellowish water If water is clear when first poured but turns yellowish or reddish after 24 hours of standing time, there is un-dissolved iron in your water. If it is yellow or reddish when at first poured but clears up after 24 hours then there is dissolved iron in your source water. Iron is a big concern with water ionizers as it can directly cause damage to your ionizer’s electrolysis system. In either case we would recommend using our UltraWater ionized water filter or with an External water prefilter Cartridge.(contact us if interested)

Black tint to water A black tint to water that clears up after 24 hours of standing is usually dissolved manganese. This is easily removed with our UltraWater ionized water filter or with an External water prefilter Cartridge.(contact us if interested) Blacking, pitting, and tarnishing of metal sinks, pipes, and utensils. The blackening, pitting, and tarnishing of metal sinks, pipes, and utensils is caused by chlorides and sulfates (salts) or hydrogen sulfide gas. Both are removed using our UltraWater ionized water filter or with an External water prefilter Cartridge.(contact us if interested)

Milky water If your water looks milky after ionization don’t worry, this is caused by the ionization process and is a sign of both the high alkalinity and the micro clustering. Micro clustering creates air pockets that can make water look milky. The increase in alkaline minerals can also cause this effect. This list in no way can replace the results of full water work up done in a laboratory environment, but can help to troubleshoot quickly and at no cost. All of the external pre-filters that we provide require a pre-filter housing, and these housings can be run in sequence if there is more than one concern.

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!

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.
