The biological effect of alkaline water consumption is object of controversy. The present paper presents a 3-year survival study on a population of 150 mice, and the data were analyzed with accelerated failure time (AFT) model. Starting from the second year of life, nonparametric survival plots suggest that mice watered with alkaline ionized water showed a better survival than control mice. Interestingly, statistical analysis revealed that alkaline ionized water provides higher longevity in terms of “deceleration aging factor” as it increases the survival functions when compared with control group; namely, animals belonging to the population treated with alkaline ionized water resulted in a longer lifespan. Histological examination of mice kidneys, intestine, heart, liver, and brain revealed that no significant differences emerged among the three groups indicating that no specific pathology resulted correlated with the consumption of alkaline ionized water. These results provide an informative and quantitative summary of survival data as a function of watering with alkaline ionized water of long-lived mouse models.
Alkaline water, often referred to as alkaline ionized water (AKW), is commercially available and is mainly proposed for electrolyte supplementation during intensive perspiration. Early studies on animal models reported that alkaline ionized water supplementation may exert positive effects on body weight improvement and development in offspring [1, 2]. Even biochemical markers were analyzed, suggesting that alkaline ionized water intake can cause elevation of metabolic activity. In particular, hyperkaliemia was observed in 15-week-old rats and pathological changes of necrosis in myocardial muscle were found .
More recently, studies were carried out on alkaline ionized/electrolysis reduced water (ARW), referring to electrolyzed water produced from minerals, such as magnesium and calcium, which is characterized by supersaturated hydrogen, high pH, and a negative redox potential ORP. This hydrogen-rich functional water has been introduced as a therapeutic strategy for health promotion and disease prevention .
Alkaline ionized/ electrolyzed reduced water have been shown to exert a suppressive effect on free radical levels in living organisms, thereby resulting in disease prevention . Various biological effects, such as antidiabetic and antioxidant actions , DNA protecting effects , and growth-stimulation activities , were documented.
Although a variety of bioactive functions have been reported, the effect of alkaline water on lifespan and longevity in vivo is still unknown. Animal alkalization has been shown to be well tolerated and to increase tumor response to metronomic chemotherapy as well the quality of life in pets with advanced cancer . Therefore, we performed a study based on survival rate experiments, which play central role in aging research and are generally performed to evaluate whether specific interventions may alter the aging process and lifespan in animal models.
2. Materials and Methods
Biological effects of alkaline ionized water were evaluated on a selected population of 150 mice (CD1, by Charles River, Oxford, UK). Pathogen-free mice were purchased and placed in a specific breeding facility. No other animal was present in the room. Contact with animal caretakers was minimized to feeding and watering. The population was divided into 3 groups, each consisting of 50 individuals, as follows:
- Group A: 50 mice conventionally fed and watered with alkaline ionizefd water produced by the Water Ionizer (mod. NT010) by Asiagem (Italy). The Water Ionizer is a home treatment device for producing alkaline drinking water.
- Group B: 50 mice conventionally fed and watered with alkalized water obtained by dilution of a concentrated alkaline solution (AlkaWater by Asiagem, Italy). AlkaWater is a concentrated alkaline solution for preparing alkaline drinking water.
- Group C: 50 mice conventionally fed and watered as conventional (control group) with tap water. The local water supply was evaluated weekly for assuring the absence of toxins and pathogens. The pH values were in the 6.0–6.5 range.
All procedures involving animals were conducted in accordance with the Italian law on experimental animals and were approved by the Ethical Committee for Animal Experiments of the University of Padua and the Italian health Ministry (Aut. no. 39ter/2011). Efforts were made to minimize animal suffering.
2.1. Histological Examination
Treated aged mice were sampled postmortem and subjected to histological examination. Animals belonging to the populations treated with alkaline water, A and B, were sacrificed after 24 months and compared to mice treated with tap water. Samples from kidneys, intestine, heart, liver, and brain were fixed in 10% neutral buffered formalin, and 4 μm sections were analyzed by optical microscopy.
2.2. Statistical Analysis
In order to investigate the biological influence of alkaline water on mouse longevity, we employed the accelerated failure time model (AFT) , which allows formally exploring the possible effect on survival curves of the applied three-level treatment, that is, examining the role of group membership as a covariate of lifespan. As a more robust alternative to the commonly used proportional hazards models, such as the Cox model, the use of AFT models is advised in the field of survival analysis when the goal is to investigate if a covariate may affect the lifespan in a way that the life cycle may pass more or less rapidly. In fact, whereas a proportional hazard model assumes that the effect of a covariate is constant over time, an AFT model assumes that the effect of a covariate is to accelerate or decelerate the life course.
The relevance of AFT model for biomedical studies has been already recognized in the literature . With more specific reference to the issue of aging, Swindell  observed that some genetic manipulations were found to have a multiplicative effect on survivorship which were well characterized by the AFT model “deceleration factor.” Moreover, Swindell  argued also that the AFT model should be utilized more widely in aging research since it provides useful tools to maximize the insight obtained from experimental studies of mouse survivorship.
To perform all calculations, we applied a parametric survival analysis approach using a class of 3-parameter AFT distribution models implemented within the statistical software Minitab, version 17.2.1 . More specifically, we employed three types of random distributions, namely, log-logistic, log-normal, and generalized Weibull.
The experiment consisted in an initial 15-day acclimatization period. After acclimatization, animals (50, group A) were watered with alkaline ionized water (pH 8.5), obtained by the Water Ionizer , whereas group B animals (50) were watered with water alkalized at pH 8.5 by a concentrated alkaline solution for 15 days. Group C animals (50), control group, were watered with the local water supply. This period has been identified to gradually accustom the animals treated with alkaline water. At the end of the second period of acclimatization, group A and B animals were watered with alkaline ionized water at pH 9.5, while animals of group C were watered with local tap water.
After the first year, the most aggressive individuals were moved to other cages within the same group and an environmental enrichment protocol was employed in order to decrease the hyperactivity. This phenomenon was observed especially in animals of groups A and B.
Table 1 reported basic statistics on mice survival of treated and control animals.
|Treatment level||Mortality rate |
|Lifespan mean (std. dev.) |
|Group A||88||679 (209)|
|Group B||92||671 (180)|
|Group C||96||667 (185)|
Regarding group A, animals (50) were watered with alkaline ionized water (pH 8.5), obtained by the Water Ionizer (Asiagem, Italy). As for group B, animals (50) were watered with water alkalized at pH 8.5 by a concentrated alkaline solution for 15 days. Regarding group C, animals (50), control group, were watered with the local water supply.
A first look on experimental data is provided in Figure 1, where nonparametric hazard and survival plots seem to suggest that even if no macroscopic difference emerges, starting from the second year of life mice watered with alkaline ionized Water and those treated with AlkaWater overwhelmed control mice.
In order to explore the possible effect of different treatments, that is, to examine the role of group membership on longevity, we applied a parametric survival analysis approach using a class of 3-parameter survival distributions that represent flexible accelerated failure time, AFT models. First of all, using the Anderson-Darling goodness-of-fit statistic, we compared three specific survival distributions, that is, log-logistic (AD = 6.397), log-normal (AD = 6.519), and generalized Weibull (AD = 6.447). Since the best fitting was shown by log-logistic model, we adopted this one as final survival distribution model. The straight lines in the log-logistic distribution QQ plots (Figures 2(a) and 2(b)) indicate that this distribution provides a suitable fit to our survival data.
Finally, by including our treatment as covariate, we performed a parametric distribution analysis whose results are graphically represented in Figure 3.
Starting with the second year of life, it is worth noting that both alkaline water treated groups denote a decreasing hazard curve over time, while the corresponding curve for control group is monotonically increasing. To more formally compare the treatment levels, the proposed analysis provided also suitable pvalues. Since the p values related on the null hypotheses of equality of location, scale and threshold parameters were, respectively, less than 0.001 (for both locations and scales) and 0.634 (for thresholds) at a 5% significance level; we can state that there is enough experimental evidence to conclude that the treatment significantly affects the mice longevity; in particular the alkaline ionized water provides a benefit to longevity in terms of “deceleration aging factor” as it decreases the hazard functions when compared with the control group. Note that the treatment effect cannot be directly related to no one of the three distribution parameters. Anyway, using the estimated parameters, it should be possible to provide an estimate for the effect of each treatment on survivorship: setting the reference survival time to 1000, 1200, and 1400 days, Table 2 summarizes the estimated point and 95% interval survival probabilities by each treatment level.
|Treatment level||Time (days)||Estimated probability||Lower 95% CI limit||Upper 95% CI limit|
As final remark, it should be noted that even if our parametric AFT survival analysis was performed using the log-logistic distribution, our conclusions are consistent with results obtained using the generalized Weibull distribution, while via log-normal distribution no significant effect was found.
3.1. Histological Examination
No significant differences emerged from the histological examination among the three groups. In all examined samples, renal tissue was characterized by a mild-to-moderate lymphoplasmacytic interstitial infiltrate and few occasional glomerular changes as glomerular size reduction and increasing of Bowman’s space (Figure 4).
Final diagnosis was mild chronic progressive nephropathy for the three analyzed mouse groups.
The microscopic examination of the liver revealed a multifocal nodular pattern of the parenchyma and diffuse mild-to-moderate hepatocellular cytoplasmic hydropic degeneration with multifocal binucleation in all explored animals (Figure 5).
Mild-to-moderate anisokaryosis was the most relevant alteration, with few pleomorphic nuclei and frequent intranuclear pseudoinclusions and karyomegaly. A specific mild perivascular infiltrate was occasionally present. Final diagnosis was mild-to-moderate diffuse hepatopathy with multifocal hyperplastic hyperplasia.
The pulmonary parenchyma showed mild multifocal areas of interstitial thickening of the interalveolar septa due to moderate congestion and mild cellular mixed infiltrate (Figure 6). Mild areas of emphysema were detected at the periphery of the parenchyma. Final diagnosis was multifocal very mild atelectasis and mild vicarious emphysema.
At the same time, no relevant histopathologic histological changes have been noticed in intestine (Figure 7), brain, and heart.
The present work presents a 3-year survival study on a population of 150 mice and the data were analyzed with accelerated failure time (AFT) model. Kaplan-Meier statistical analysis of the survival data indicates the possibility of a positive effect of alkaline ionized water on mouse lifespan and AFT model allowed evaluating differences starting from the second year of the survival curves. These results provide an informative and quantitative summary of survival data as a function of watering with alkaline ionized water on long-lived mouse models. It should be pointed out that, from the standpoint of aging research, this statistical approach presents appealing properties and provides valuable tools for the analysis of survival. The observation of tissues of deceased animals was performed for the assessment of the state of internal organs to be compared with similar analyses of untreated animals. The renal lesions observed at histology were specific and common for the three animal groups. Chronic progressive nephropathy has been well described as normal aging change in mice [11, 12]. In our cases animals did not show any clinical sign of nephropathy or any other histological evidence of specific kidney disease and we ascribed the lesions to the aging process [11, 12].
The examined livers were also affected by typical lesions of mature subjects, such as hyperplastic nodules. Furthermore, well known aging changes were individuated in the hepatocytes, such as karyomegaly, nuclear pleomorphism, and pseudoinclusions cysts [11, 12].
A 3-year survival study on a population of 150 mice was carried out in order to investigate the biological effect of alkaline water consumption. Firstly, nonparametric hazard and survival plots suggest that mice watered with alkaline ionized water overwhelmed control mice. Secondly, data were analyzed with accelerated failure time (AFT) model inferring that a benefit on longevity, in terms of “deceleration aging factor,” was correlated with the consumption of alkaline ionized water. Finally, histological examination of mice kidneys, intestines, hearts, livers, and brains was performed in order to verify the risk of diseases correlated to alkaline watering. No significant damage, but aging changes, emerged; organs of alkaline watered animals resulted to be quite superimposable to controls, shedding a further light in the debate on alkaline water consumption in humans.

Alkaline Water and Longevity: A Murine Study
Articles from Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Medicine : eCAM are provided here courtesy of Hindawi Limited
A Randomized Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Pilot Study
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the ingestion of alkaline-reduced water (ARW) is helpful in improving the symptoms of diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Twenty-seven patients (male, 25.9%; mean, 41.7 years old) with diarrhea-predominant IBS were randomly allocated to two groups. For eight weeks, the ARW group (n = 13) ingested at least 2 liters/day of ARW, while the control group (n = 14) ingested placebo water. IBS symptom scores (quality-of-life, abdominal pain/discomfort), stool form, and frequency were assessed before and after treatment via questionnaires.
Eight patients (61.5%) in the ARW group and six patients (42.9%) in the control group indicated that their symptoms had improved in more than four out of the eight weeks of treatment (p = 0.449). The IBS quality-of-life score significantly improved from 57.2 to 30.8 in the ARW group; this improvement was significantly greater than the slight improvement from 48.7 to 42.2 observed in the control group (p = 0.029). The abdominal pain score improved from 1.8 to 0.9 in the ARW group and from 1.8 to 1.1 in the control group, with no significant group difference (p = 0.232).
Drinking ARW for eight weeks improves the quality of life in patients with diarrhea-predominant IBS.
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is a functional intestinal disorder accompanied by abdominal pain and bowel habit changes, without evidence of an underlying injury. It is a very common disease, occurring in about 11% of people worldwide . According to the Korean National Health Insurance System database, 5.1% of men and 6.9% of women were diagnosed with IBS . IBS is one of the most common illnesses in primary care, with a repeated cycle of deterioration and relief over the years. Improving symptoms through appropriate treatment is important; IBS lowers the quality of life and increases medical costs [2–4]. Patients with IBS also suffer from anxiety, major depressive disorder, and chronic fatigue syndrome [5, 6]. However, the cause and mechanisms underlying the various symptoms are not entirely understood. Many hypotheses have been proposed, including small bowel bacterial overgrowth syndrome, genetic factors, food hypersensitivities, gastrointestinal motility disorders, gut-brain axis alterations, hypersensitivity of the intestine, and psychosocial factors [7–10]. Recent studies indicate that the intestinal microbiota is one of the important factors affecting the onset of IBS [11, 12].
Various drugs have been used to improve symptoms, including antacids, antispasmodics, and drugs that stimulate gastrointestinal motility (prokinetic agents). However, with a lack of convincing evidence for a pathophysiological basis, conventional therapies have not achieved complete symptom improvement. Therefore, several alternative therapeutic methods, including dietary changes, probiotics, and other medications, have been proposed [13–16]. Furthermore, mineral water with various electrolyte compositions has been utilized in the treatment of functional gastrointestinal diseases; mineral water supplements have been reported to improve functional dyspepsia associated with IBS by controlling gastric acid output and intestinal transit time . In addition, carbonated water not only attenuates the hunger but also improves dyspeptic symptoms and heartburn [18, 19]. Drinking sulfur-rich mineral water for more than three weeks was found to be effective in treating constipation by increasing frequency of bowel movements . Bicarbonate-containing alkaline-reduced water (ARW) has also been hypothesized to affect various digestive functions. Although animal studies have provided evidence that ARW is effective in treating functional bowel disease, human studies are lacking [21–23]. Therefore, the purpose of this randomized double-blind pilot study was to evaluate the effect of ARW ingestion on diarrhea-predominant IBS.
2.1. Ethical Approval
This study was conducted in accordance with the ethical principles for medical research involving human subjects in the Declaration of Helsinki. This study was approved by the Seoul National University Bundang Hospital Medical Ethics Committee (IRB number: E-1405/250-002) and aspires to protect the lives, health, privacy, and dignity of the research participants. Thus, the purpose and characteristics of the clinical trial were fully explained to the participants. Only patients who voluntarily signed an informed consent were included, and patients were allowed to stop participating at any time during the trial. All results obtained in this clinical study are confidential.
2.2. Study Population
Men and women aged 18–75 years who met Rome III criteria  for diarrhea-predominant IBS, had no underlying disease of the colon on a sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy performed within 5 years prior to screening, and could understand and respond to the symptom questionnaires were included. Rome III criteria for IBS involve recurrent abdominal pain or discomfort at least 3 days/month in the last 3 months with two or more of the following: improvement with defecation, onset associated with a change in stool frequency, or onset associated with a change in stool form . Diarrhea-predominant IBS involves loose or watery stools in more than 25% of bowel movements and hard or lumpy stool in less than 25% of bowel movements.
The following were excluded: patients with a psychiatric history; patients with untreated malignant tumors; patients with severe liver or kidney disease (AST, ALT levels 3-fold greater than the normal upper limit, and serum creatinine levels 1.5-fold greater than the normal upper limit); patients with severe heart failure; patients with acute gastrointestinal tract infection within the last 3 months. In addition, patients who were taking medications during the study period that could affect the results were also excluded. This included drugs that might influence IBS symptoms, such as antispasmodics, laxatives, prokinetics, anticholinergics, antianxiety drugs, antidepressants, analgesics, thyroid hormone, antibiotics, and steroids.
It is difficult to predict the therapeutic response rate between the test group and the control group since similar studies related to ARW have not existed before. This is a small-scale preliminary pilot study to investigate feasibility, adverse events, and improvement before a full-scale research project. This study was planned with 30 participants per group, which is the minimum number of participants recommended in a pilot study [25, 26]. Given an estimated dropout rate of 15%, at least 35 people per group were planned to be enrolled.
2.3. Randomization and Allocation
Patients who were diagnosed with diarrhea-predominant IBS by Rome III criteria were equally allocated to experimental and control groups. Randomization was performed using a 1 : 1 computerized block randomization with a predetermined random code. Because both the investigator and the patients were blinded, a research coordinator performed the random assignment. The research coordinator did not provide information on randomization to the patients and researchers until the end of the study. Neither the participants nor the researchers could distinguish group assignments.
2.4. Study Design
A flowchart of the study design is provided in Figure 1. Patients completed screening tests (blood, urinalysis, colonoscopy, and a past medical history questionnaire) 1–3 weeks before participating in the study. Laboratory evaluation included assessments of liver function (albumin, total bilirubin, aspartate aminotransferase, alanine aminotransferase, and alkaline phosphatase levels), kidney function (creatinine and blood urea nitrogen levels), electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, and inorganic phosphorus levels), and the complete blood count (CBC).
Baseline questionnaires on the IBS quality of life, abdominal pain/discomfort, stool form, and stool frequency were completed at the start of the study. The IBS quality-of-life questionnaire is an indicator of abdominal discomfort and consists of 34 items (each recorded as 1–5 points: 1: not at all, 2: slightly, 3: moderately, 4: quite a bit, and 5: extremely) . Symptom scores for abdominal pain/discomfort were rated on a scale of 0–4 (0: asymptomatic, 1: mild, 2: moderate, 3: severe, and 4: very severe) and were based on the worst level of the day. Abdominal discomfort was defined as an uncomfortable sensation not described as pain. Stool form was assessed using the Bristol stool scale, which is a diagnostic tool designed to classify the form of human feces into seven categories. In general, types 1 and 2 (hard or lumpy stool) indicate constipation, and types 5–7 (soft or watery stool) indicate diarrhea . In addition, the number of bowel movements was recorded daily.
The experimental group ingested ARW from an installed test device, while the control group ingested placebo water from a sham device. Both groups were instructed to ingest more than 2 liters per day for eight weeks. Participants visited the hospital every two weeks and completed self-administered questionnaires on compliance, adverse effects, the amount ingested, symptom scores (abdominal pain/discomfort), stool form, and the number of daily bowel movements. Questionnaires on the IBS quality of life were completed only at the end of the eighth week. If adverse events occurred during the trial period, participants were instructed to stop the medication immediately and visit an outpatient clinic.
The primary outcome was the proportion of participants with adequate symptomatic improvement in more than four weeks of the 8-week treatment period. The secondary outcomes were changes in IBS quality of life, symptom scores (abdominal pain/discomfort), and stool form/frequency.
2.5. Research Equipment
ARW with a pH of 8.5–10.0 was produced using an alkali water ionizer (Kim Young Kwi alkali water ionizer, KYK33000). Placebo water was prepared using a sham device (model name: sham KYK33000), which was not able to generate ARW, but had the same appearance as that of the test apparatus. The devices were installed at the patient’s home and patients were allowed to drink water as needed.
2.6. Statistical Analyses
Statistical analyses were performed using SPSS for Windows (ver. 22.0, IBM Corporation, Chicago, IL, USA) and STATA software (ver. 14.0, STATA Corporation, College Station, TX, USA). Group differences were evaluated using Student’s t-test for continuous variables and the Chi-square or Fisher’s exact test for categorical variables. Group differences in treatment-related changes in variables related to IBS (abdominal pain/frequency, stool form, and frequency of bowel movements) were evaluated using a linear mixed model with an interaction term between group and time (before and after treatment). Changes in the IBS quality-of-life score were evaluated using the paired t-test. Two-sided p values less than 0.05 were considered statistically significant.
3.1. Baseline Characteristics
Only 29 were enrolled in the study and 2 dropped out during the study; because the patients were burdened with drinking more than 2 liters of water a day for a long time, we failed to enroll the intended 70 patients. Finally, 13 patients in the ARW group and 14 patients in the control group completed the study (Figure 2). There were no significant group differences in baseline characteristics (Table 1). Ten out of thirteen (76.9%) patients in the ARW group and ten out of fourteen (71.4%) patients in the control group were women. The mean age in the ARW group was slightly higher compared to that of the control group, but without statistical significance (43.3 versus 40.1, p = 0.584). At the beginning of the study, IBS symptom scores (quality-of-life, abdominal pain/discomfort), Bristol stool form, and stool frequency were not significantly different between the two groups. In addition, the consumption of water was similar in the two groups (ARW group: 2,124 ± 900 ml/day; control group: 2,052 ± 648 ml/day, p = 0.834).

3.2. Primary Outcome Measure
Table 2 shows the number of responders (a favorable symptom improvement in more than four weeks of the eight-week treatment period) and nonresponders in each group. Although the proportion of patients responding to the treatment was higher in the ARW group (8/13, 61.5%) than in the control group (6/14, 42.9%), the difference was not statistically significant (Fisher’s exact test, p = 0.449).
|Alkaline-reduced water group (n = 13)||Control group (n = 14)||p value|
|Responder, n (%)||8 (61.5%)||6 (42.9%)||0.449|
|Nonresponder, n (%)||5 (38.5%)||8 (57.1%)|
3.3. Secondary Outcome Measures
After eight weeks of treatment, the IBS quality-of-life score had improved from 57.2 to 30.8 points in the ARW group and from 48.7 to 42.2 in the control group (Table 3), with a significant group difference (Figure 3(a), p = 0.029). The abdominal pain score improved from 1.8 to 0.9 in the ARW group and from 1.8 to 1.1 in the control group, without a statistically significant group difference (Figure 3(b), p = 0.232). Abdominal discomfort, stool form, and stool frequency were somewhat improved in the ARW group; however, there were no significant group differences (Figures 3(c)–3(e)).

3.4. Adverse Effects
One of the patients in the control group visited the emergency room due to vomiting and abdominal pain during the second week of the study, but improved with conservative treatment. There were no specific adverse effects associated with ARW ingestion during the eight weeks of the trial.
IBS is one of the most common gastrointestinal disorders in the general population . In addition, because the effects of medications are often temporary, patients may increase the dose of the medication or take several medications, resulting in the occurrence of side effects. Thus, interest in alternative therapies that do not have side effects (even after long-term use) is growing [13–17]. Numerous animal studies have investigated the ability of controlling the electrolyte balance or acidity of the drinking water to treat functional gastrointestinal disorders. For example, animal studies have shown ARW to be effective in treating gastritis because it permanently denatures pepsin . In addition, an animal study demonstrated that ingestion of more than 1.5 liters of bicarbonate-alkaline mineral water for 30 days improves dyspeptic symptoms . It has also been suggested that a regular course of crenotherapy with bicarbonate-alkaline mineral water can be used to treat functional dyspepsia, improving gastrointestinal motility and secretory function by modulating the secretion of peptide hormones and regulating the movement of digestive organs . These studies support the hypothesis that ARW can effectively treat IBS; however, prior to the present study, there were no supporting human clinical trials. Given this preclinical basis, we aimed to investigate whether ARW ingestion for eight weeks improved the symptoms of IBS.
This randomized controlled, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was designed to determine whether the ingestion of ARW could improve the quality of life, abdominal pain/discomfort, stool form, and stool frequency in diarrhea-predominant IBS. In terms of the primary endpoint, the proportion of responders (IBS patients who had improved symptoms in more than four weeks of the 8-week treatment period) was higher in the ARW group than in the control group, but the group difference was not statistically significant. This is likely due to the small number of patients who completed the trial; however, it is hard to predict an effect size, as no similar studies exist. We believe that a positive result could be obtained in a larger-scale study. In contrast to the primary outcome, a significant group difference was observed in the secondary outcomes. The IBS-related quality-of-life and abdominal pain scores were decreased to a greater extent with ARW ingestion compared to those with the ingestion of placebo water. This is a meaningful result because it demonstrates that it is possible to reduce IBS symptoms simply by ingesting water with a different pH, without taking any other medication. In addition, ARW has few adverse effects; thus, it shows potential in becoming an important complementary therapy for functional bowel disease. However, there were no significant group differences in the stool form and frequency improvements. At the beginning of the study, the frequency of bowel movements in both groups was 2-3 times a day, which is less than that for the definition of diarrhea (more than three times a day). Thus, the patients in both groups mainly had mild diarrhea, which may explain the lack of a significant change in symptom scores with treatment.
The mechanism by which ARW improves IBS symptoms remains unclear. ARW refers to water with a pH of at least 8.4; in contrast, most tap or bottled water has a pH between 6.7 and 7.4 . ARW is thought to increase the pH level of the stomach given its large amount of bicarbonate ions. Interestingly, just infusing a small amount (0.1 mol/L) of acid into the stomach can aggravate indigestion in most people . In addition, acidification of the duodenum exacerbates dyspeptic symptoms by inducing proximal gastric relaxation and inhibiting gastric accommodation to a meal . In one animal study, duodenal acidification-induced gastric hypersensitivity could be the cause of dyspepsia in patients with IBS and serotonin 5-HT3 receptors play a key role . Furthermore, in patients with pancreatic insufficiency, such as cystic fibrosis, the small intestine is exposed to an acidic environment, resulting in impaired absorption. Rapid neutralization of gastric acid in the proximal portion of the duodenum and tight regulation of the gastrointestinal pH play important roles in maintaining nutrient absorption and function in the intestines . In addition, mineral water with a unique electrolyte composition may help improve the symptoms of indigestion [18–20, 32]. Carbonated water could regulate gastrointestinal motility diseases by stimulating bile flow and pancreatic exocrine secretion. Furthermore, drinking carbonated water for more than 15 days has been shown to improve gallbladder muscle contractions . The ingestion of water containing a lot of mineral salts has been shown to improve gastric emptying in patients with indigestion . It is presumed that the various ions contained in mineral water directly or indirectly (via neuroendocrine secretion of vasointestinal peptides) stimulate the smooth muscle involved in gastrointestinal motility. These actions appear to improve the symptoms of IBS by improving intestinal transit time and excretory capacity. These actions are thought to not only reduce the bowel transit time, but also promote gastrointestinal hormone secretion, thereby improving abdominal bloating. We expect that large-scale studies on ARW with various electrolytic compositions will proceed in the future.
Gut microbiota appear to be one of the important factors contributing to the cause and pathophysiology of IBS [11, 12]. Postinfectious IBS should be suspected when the patient complains of dyspepsia or abdominal discomfort after acute gastroenteritis . Postinfectious IBS is thought to be due to persistent low-grade inflammation and alteration of gut flora intestinal microorganisms. The composition of gut microbiota is also associated with the pathophysiology of IBS and the host immune response . Abundance of Cyanobacteria is associated with bloating, satiety, and increased abdominal discomfort. The amount of Proteobacteria is associated with pain threshold . Therefore, it was suggested that probiotics, antibiotics, and fecal microbiota transplantation might be effective in the treatment of IBS . Many gastrointestinal disorders, including IBS, are caused by an imbalance of residential microflora of the intestinal tract. Human intestinal microbiota consist of 96–99% anaerobes and 1–4% aerobes. Microorganisms have their own intrinsic reduction potential (Eh) for each species, and aerobic and anaerobic bacteria grow at different oxidation-reduction potentials. Aerobic bacteria require a positive potential of +400 mV and facultative anaerobic bacteria require negative electric potential between −300 and −400 mV. Electrochemically generated reduced water has a negative potential of 0 to −300 mV, while the tap water has a potential of +300 to +450 mV . By drinking reduced water, it is possible to improve symptoms of functional bowel disease by accelerating the growth of anaerobic bacteria (Lactobacilli andBifidobacteria) and inhibiting the growth of aerobic pathogens.
The present study has some limitations. First, the statistical power was weak because of the small sample size. Second, patients with IBS tend to be somewhat less adherent due to the distrust of conventional therapies and hospitals. Third, although IBS is a highly prevalent disease, there were some difficulties in recruiting patients. Because the participants expressed difficulty in drinking more than 2 liters of water a day, we could not enroll as many patients as intended. In addition, subjects were already taking several medications before participating in the study, so it was not easy to stop them all and treat them with ARW only for 8 weeks. Patients’ compliance should be taken into account when designing large-scale studies on this topic in the future. Fourth, the lifestyle and diet were not controlled except for the medications. These confounding factors may be somewhat offset in the randomization process. Despite these limitations, the main strength of the present study is its randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled design. Moreover, ARW is a simple and inexpensive treatment that physicians can easily consider in the treatment of IBS. To our knowledge, this is the first study to show whether ARW can improve IBS in humans, irrespective of the mechanism.
In conclusion, the present study suggests that ingestion of ARW can improve the quality of life and reduce abdominal pain in patients with diarrhea-predominant IBS. We hope that this pilot study provides a cornerstone for future large-scale trials on the effectiveness of ARW in the treatment of IBS.

AlkaViva UltraWater filtration technology
Simply put, AlkaViva UltraWater filtration is the best alkaline water ionizer filter you can buy. In fact, it is the best water filter — of any type — that is currently available. Our unmatched Independent EPA / NELAP certified lab tests prove it. We often get asked how we can achieve such stunning water filtration/contaminant removal results.
Smart Shopper’s Shortcut
What you need to know about UltraWater filtration…What good is healthy water if it isn’t also clean water? Better than 0.01 micron UltraFiltration or a series of external water filters, UltraWater incorporates Sediment shield, BioStone Booster, BioStone Carbon Block with Impregnation Plus(zeolite and silver), Bioceramic Tourmaline with Scale Guard, UltraWater Disc Technology to offer ultraclean alkaline ionized and molecular hydrogen water and most important has been tested and certified by a governmental laboratory for efficient removal of 172 water contaminants – UltraWater filtration technology – the most thoroughly tested and safest water filtration option available.
Here’s How We Do It
Let’s start with an analogy: turbocharged gas engines. When they first came out, they combined new and existing technologies in a novel way. The result was a powerful new combination and unprecedented performance. Similarly, UltraWater filtration technology starts with the water industry’s proven top-performing media, adds in cutting edge medias in a new application, and then creates a new twist on existing manufacturing techniques. The result isn’t just a water filter. It’s a proprietary water filtration technology. This unique combination effectively “turbocharges” the media and water filtration processes, allowing better water filtration performance and better results.
Standard GAC water filters do not offer this component. It is an electrostatic wrap comprised of polypropylene spun fiber. It is designed to provide a mechanical barrier to sediment – meaning it traps the sediments.
Comprised of NSF certified CaSO3 slow-eluting bio-ceramic balls. They target chlorine, chloramine certain heavy metals. CaSO3 is more effective than granulated active carbon or KDF. One hundred grams (100g) of CaSO3 will outperform carbon and KDF by a factor of x2.
BioStone Carbon with Impregnation Plus
Our NSF certified carbon is catalyzed with an oxidizer and has the highest oxidation and adsorption pore concentration available. The carbon is impregnated with natural zeolite(vulcanic rock) and silver(antimicrobial).
The zeolite provides increased heavy metal reduction and a slight ion-exchange effect.
The silver prevents bacteria growth between uses.
We use both carbon block and loose bed applications.
Our carbon blocks are sintered and compressed under high temperature and heat (not extruded) resulting in a superior carbon block. Either way, our proprietary process greatly increases the surface area, contact time and the resulting capability.
UltraWater Disc Technology
This leading-edge technology is the real turbocharger in UltraWater filter. It combines a high-tech NSF certified reticulated foam which is impregnated with three different medias. All are NSF certified. All offer unmatched heavy metal and organics reduction allowing us to target contaminants that other alkaline water ionizer filters can’t – such as arsenic.
Bioceramic Tourmaline with Scale Guard
The tourmaline is in a very hard, slow-eluting biocermic ball from. It releases FAR infrared energy lowering surface tension. Scale Guard is a sequestering agent that is a highly effective anti-scale media. It is in a slow-eluting crystal bead form and is there to protect the water ionizer from hard water damage.
What it Does
UltraWater is the ONLY alkaline water ionizer filter tested for 172 contaminants. Independent EPA / NELAP certified lab testing shows UltraWater is the ONLY water filter that can reduce virtually all contaminants up to 99.9% — even the toughest including arsenic, chromium VI, lead, VOCs and pharmaceuticals
UltraWater filtration technology selectively reduces the bad contaminants while allowing the good, naturally occurring minerals to pass through. This alkaline water ionizer filter design is used in AlkaViva’s UltraWater electric water ionizer range to produce electric ionization.
UltraWater filtration can also be formulated to create natural water ionization without electricity. Some of the world’s renowned sources of healing water are passively ionized by contact with certain earth alkali minerals, silicate and crystalline complexes. We have formulated an exclusive “passive water ionization” technology inside our non-electric Elita Series which contains the same type of mineral complexes. As water passes over the passive water ionization media we create increased pH, –ORP and molecular hydrogen (H2 water). While multiple beneficial minerals are dissolved, it chiefly infuses magnesium, which is shown to be absorbed best by the body when dissolved in water.
So regardless of which AlkaViva water product you choose, ultraclean and effective UltraWater is the best answer!

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.

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:
- having a pH range between 2.0ph and lower than 7.0ph
- having an ORP of +800 to +1200
- having a hypochlorous acid component from 1-30 mg/l
- being micro-clustered
- 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.

|The display panel of the water ionizer does not light up.||Is the power cord plugged in correctly to an active outlet?||*Plug the power cord in properly.|
|Switch does not work.||* Is the power plug connected to the outlet properly? * Is the fuse on the back of the water ionizer blown?||* Plug the power cord in properly. * Check the fuse on the back of the water ionizer and replace it if necessary.|
|Water does not flow out or the water ionizer unit has stopped functioning.||* Is the source water valve line closed? * Is the source water line properly connected to the water ionizer? * Is the white water hose bent? * Is the input water pressure too low? * Is the main water supply turned on or is the line frozen? * Is the water filter clogged? * Running the acidic water on Acidic Level 3 for 10+ mins. through the water ionizer?||* Turn the water supply valve on. * Be sure the water supply hose is connected properly. * Be sure the water line is not bent. * Replace the water filter. * If the water ionizer unit is leaking, turn off the water supply valve and contact customer service. * Replace the water filter. * Turn off the water ionizer at the power switch for 5-10 minutes to allow for a reset period then turn the water ionizer back on.|
|Water is leaking from one water hose at the attachment to the water ionizer.||* Check to see if the water hose is disconnected from the water ionizer||Connect the hose snugly to the attachment to the water ionizer.|
|The ionized or filtered water has a strange odor or tastes bad.||* Has the water ionizer been unused for a long time? * Has the drain water hose been immersed in water?||* Let acidic ionized water flow through the water ionizer & filters for 3minutes or more. If the water does not improve, replace the water filter. * Remove the drain hose from water|
|Even though the filter has been replaced, the filter life indicator still shows no-life.||* Did you reset the water filter counter?||* Reset the water filter by pressing the filter replacement button||\|
|There is a strange noise coming from the water ionizer.||* Unknown.||* Switch off and stop using the water ionizer and contact customer service.|
Calcium in ionized water When filling your cup with alkaline water, white flakes are seen floating in the cup. * This large quantity of mineral flakes in the water may occur right after a filter change or first use of the water ionizer. There is no problem with drinking this water as it is mostly calcium which is not harmful to consume. When high alkaline water is left in a container, the water will form a white film around the edges or on the bottom. The substance is CaCO2 – bonded calcium, which falls to the bottom of the container. If you prefer to not have this white substance in your water, adjust the pH to a lower level which will reduce the possibility of calcium bonding. Calcium flakes form by bonding with hydrogen which is abundant in alkaline water. The presence of calcium is a sign that the water ionizer is functioning properly. If you would like to clean calcium out of any container, put a spoonful of vinegar in the container and fill it with water. Vinegar will dissolve the calcium. Leave the water in the container for 1 hour and shake the water out. FEEL FREE TO CONTACT US FOR ANY HELP: +40758638401 Kindest Regards! AlkaViva Team
Reverse Aging with Alkaline IONIZED Water!
Can Ionized Alkaline Water stop the aging process and even “reverse aging” or is it just a myth/exaggerated claims?
The article below from AlkaViva website (ex IonWays) is a selection of Mr. Sang Whang, a successful inventor, scientist and engineer.
Sang Whang, Korean American scientist and inventor , explains beautifully in his revolutionary “Reverse Aging”.
He says that water has memory (we saw this amazing crystal images of ionized alkaline water- microstructured snowflake water , taken with by MRI of Dr. Masaru Emoto and the early works of homoeopaths) but he goes further .Shang Wang says this memory is expressed as measurable electricity. This energy can be measured in volts (or millivolts, because it is always very small) and can be lost over time. When water has an electrical potential has the ability to make the hydrogen to take two different forms.
Article becomes quite technical.
When the ionized water has electric energy, it causes to hydrogen in the take one of two forms. One is hydrogen, which has a positive electric charge. This ionized water is ‘acidic’. The other is hydrogen, with a link of oxygen and becomes negatively charged. This is the block of life itself with the chemical form of OH-.
An oxygen atom plus a hydrogen atom with negative charge. This is Ionized Alkaline Water. (electric) Ionized water has energy and is alkaline & can now donate energy & alkalinity to any compatible atom in your body. ionized water rich in OH- ions has a pH> 7 it is called “alkaline”.
In both forms, these hydroxyl ions OH-, or atoms now have the ability to precipitate the chemical reaction of other minerals in the water. What does it with health and longevity?
It should always be read and water ionization means and why we need negative ions.
Nothing happens in our bodies without a chemical reaction.
And every chemical reaction only happens when “energy” of only two atoms is compatible. So we can say that we are a chemical organism – by courtesy of electricity.
At the molecular level, beyond cell, trillions of rejection and electrical unification happens every millisecond of our lives. It’s a real orgy of unity, and is happening right now in your body always happens and continues to balance acid and alkaline reactions – the battle between them ends up
Who / what wins this battle ion? Acid – every time. We all know that our body acids take control after we die to damage the body. Let me tell you, acids did this many, many years before he died. They do now! Rust, break, break, burn, oxidize – they are all a natural part of our balanced metabolism.
So .. life as we know it is a “struggle” between the internal positively charged atoms (ions) and negatively charged atoms (ions). We just – but less accurately – say life is a battle between acid and alkaline, because that’s exactly what It means your body’s pH.
measuring the pH balance of the alkali / acid
Returning to the water (ionized) – where there are more H + ions than OH-ions in water, ionized acidic water talk. When there are more hydroxyl ions OH-than H +, talk ionized alkaline water.
Acid or alkali is measured by pH.
pH is a measure of hydrogen ions (atoms).
The more H + ions in water, the more “acidic”.
The more ions OH – in water, the more “alkaline”.
Acidic water and alkaline water can be considered conceptually as electric or hydrogen ion carrying a positive charge or negative electricity.
All chemical processes in your body are initiated and completed when the correct electrical charge is found to match the electrical charge of another atom. Nothing happens without electricity. Electrical and chemical, are therefore the same in the body.
We agree with this?
If not, please assign five precious minutes and reread, because what will come about ionziata alkaline water is based on your understanding so far and is the key to health and anti aging secret Orin Ionized Alkaline Water.
Alright. Ionized water (and beyond) can hydrogen ions in it. An ion is an atom with an electric charge.
We can measure the pH using litmus paper or electronic pH meter. This will give a reading of 0-14, with pH 7 being neutral; or acid or alkali. Or we can use an ORP meter that tells us more. We say A = R = reduction or oxidation of the donation, P = potential of a liquid. That’s what O.R.P. înseamnă.POTENTIAL reduce oxidation
Oxidizing means the ability to oxidize. To burn and produce energy but to destroy, “rust” breaks. “That is oxidation (happens to our bodies after death).
However, oxygen is also necessary for life and the life-processes of living beings. We can not live and can not be healthy without oxygen.
Ionized water oxygenates the body by increasing the ratio of oxygen / hydrogen. Why? Easy-water H20 has one oxygen atom for every two hydrogen atoms. Ionized alkaline, rich in hydroxyl ion (OH-) has an oxygen atom for a hydrogen atom.
All other waters are deprived of this benefit. Implications of this are multiple health, energy and vitality
Ionized water oxygenates your body more effectively than any other treatment “Oxygen” / ozone therapy.
At the same time, measures are needed to prevent and combat the damage caused by oxidation processes-those antioxidants-ORP
The reduction is not as easy to understand. Scientifically, it is giving away, or to donate, so if a liquid “reduce oxidation potential”, he has the ability to donate energy to the body.
Alkaline water has millions of hydroxyl ions per bottle and provides a powerful antioxidant, numti-ORP. No other water has that incredible advantage. Hydroxyl ions help to “neutralize” free radicals that cause cellular damage / oxidative stress and premature cell aging,
Alkaline water eliminates and fights free radical damage – the body more effectively than vitamin C consumption bottles!
is what we say and Dr. Robert F. McCauley, Sr. about the antioxidant power conferred by hydroxyl ions (OH-) in alkaline ionized water and stopping and reversing the aging process
Oxygen derived from the ionized form to the body reaches a very powerful antioxidant, which has attached to it an extra electron, and it is known that the hydroxyl ion (OH-).
It occurs when water is carried over positive and negative electrodes and there is a shift of electrons from one molecule to another.
The hydroxyl ions have an oxygen molecule that carries an extra electron is donated to free radical in the body (see Appendix 4), so it is considered as a street sweeper “” of free radicals.
What remains are two stable oxygen molecules and a higher level of oxygen in the blood (which will ajutasi of the immune system) instead of one that will cause free radical damage.
Drinking ionized water inside your body bathes in a negatively charged liquid, which promotes rejuvenation of each bodily system at a cellular level.
All fresh raw foods also have a negative charge and ORP.
Freshly squeezed orange juice carries a negative ORP -50 to 300 ORP (mμ).
The smaller the negative number, the better it is for the body; higher the positive number, the worse it is.
On average, chlorinated city water has a positive ORP +700 so pretty oxide and should not be consumed.
Anything that is oxidized, or has the potential to oxidize another substance, has a positive ORP.
Our bodies are constantly attacked by the oxidation radicals in the form of; how much older we are, the need for higher negative ORP.
When we drink negatively charged substances such as Ionized Water, this oxidation is retarded and our body cells are in a better position to rejuvenate, or reduce, their age.
Water has a low atomic weight (18) and when water is ionized through electrolysis, it becomes the most absorbent and antioxidant known.
In essence, reversing the aging process. However, we do not become younger in chronological years, 40 years if we do not we become 20 again. Rather, we hold nivelcelular body in 20 years.
This means that the cells that make up my body are as active, productive, communicative and functional as those of 20 years and potentially even better.
So I reversed my biological clock, not chronologically. ”
More on electrical charge alkaline ionized water that gives benefits and unique properties and implications for the optimal functioning of the organism and living beings.
Alkaline water is super conductive properties. ONLY ionized water has an electrical charge that gives vitality water
Alkaline water is living water.
What is / about living water?
All electrons in water are either spin / rotation left or right. The higher the spin speed the more water left electrons is considered to support the vitality, the living water. Only Alkaline ionized water has this quality.
Did you know that filtering devices-ionization (alkalizing) AlkaViva water were tested in the laboratory to what extent vdea vitality water load (how much life force once the water gets through them), and bought with other waters considered to be living including Kangen Water?
Here’s what the tests revealed water vitality, made in Alberta Canada, click here.
Filtering devices-ionization (alkylation) generating water AlkaViva are true living water, as shown in tests, not words without coverage.
“Alkaline living water is regarded by a number of health professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.” Dr Hidemitsu Hayashi heart surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japaniei
And the water is more alive and more asemantoare living in properties with natural waters as found in the valleys of longevity (we studied) than AlkaViva living water?
Alkaline water is the only water that has a low surface tension. The surface tension is measured in dynes (s). This allows for greater absorption of water and with water of nutrients in the body.
Alkaline water has positive polarity.
Almost all other waters are negative polarity. ONLY positive polarity water can effectively help remove toxins and poisons from the body at the cellular level. Alkaline water can help flush toxins and poisons from your body better and with much less negative effects than any other detox program / protocol.
Alkaline water is very positively perceived by the organism and living beings. This allows the cells to efficiently transmit photons with each other. This function allows the production of vital inter-cellular communication.
Alkaline water is a thousand times healthier for your body than any other water. And proof “is in the pudding,” so to speak. Everyone drinking ionized water or milk in its natural state as glacier / glacier milk, or a quality water ionizer (built with quality materials and parts is that ionizes does birth and not overly optimized) lives in health status “light years” from those who do not.
Did you know that 15% of the population of Japan, drinking alkaline water from water ionizers have a life expectancy of 10 years, in addition, more than those in the United States? And drink ionized water for an average of only 12 years! Think if that would be started drinking ionized water from birth!
A glass of ionized water can hydrate the body better than gallons of any water.
Let’s face it; comes a time in our lives when we want some people to be estimated us / “guessed” our age a bit lower than they facuto. Instead of looking for new pills or injections that can take to lessen the aging process, maybe it is time to look at other issues at hand with greater impact related to the lifestyle and the things introduce in our body.
Here are some selections that may be of interest to anyone wondering about how it affects an alkaline diet.
“We were born at the high alkaline blood pH 7.44. As we get older, the blood pH drops to 7.35 or below. Blood pH referred to here is the artery pH Blood. difference of 0.09 pH seems very small, but because the pH is a logarithmic, an amount of hydroxyl ion (OH-) at pH 7.44 is 1.23 times higher than pH 7.35, as 10 = 1.2303. ”
“In some extreme cases, the accumulation of acidic elements are so great that begin to destroy healthy cells around them. Healthy cells must maintain a slightly alkaline pH level. Some cells change their metabolism and functions in order to survive in an acid environment. This is the start of cancer. are acidic in cancer cells while normal cells are alkaline. Although the cancerous tumors are removed surgically or completely destroyed by other means (chemotherapy, radiation but only alternative anti-tumor) as long as they remain under the acidic conditions in the area, chances are that new tumors will develop around aceeleaşi areas.
Exactly where waste accumulates may vary depending on each individual. However, parts of the body where waste accumulates can determine what kind of disease a person may develop in the first place. ”
“Because the accumulation of waste within the body and dauunele caused by free radicals / oxidative damage are strongly correlated with the aging process, helping the body to prevent damage and escape of waste ixidare old the anti-aging process.”
Sang Whang, in his book “Reverse Aging” / “Rejuvenation”
“In general, degenerative diseases are the result of the accumulation of acid waste in the tissues. When we are born, we have the highest concentration of alkali and also body pH is higher. Since that time, the normal process of life is to gradually acidify. That is why these degenerative diseases do not occur when they are very young.
“Rejuvenation” requires two distinct phases: chemical and physical
The first step is to reduce the acidity of the body so as to eliminate acid waste in the blood and cellular fluids safely and easily.
The second step is to remove all of the old waste deposited in the blood stream so that they can be discharged from the body. ”
Alkaline ionized water is highly alkaline pH.
It may be from 100 to thousand times more alkaline than all of the other waters. (PH is a logaritmic scale / measure . The difference between pH 7 and pH 8 is exponential) Alkaline water removes acidosis / over-acidity in the body, the environment installs all diseases and the cause of most diseases (including cancer , heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, bone and joint diseases, infectious diseases and many others)
“Ionized alkaline water body better than any other method (diet 100% organic vegan / organic).” Blake Sawyer

Alkaline ionized water & sports
What are the benefits of alkaline ionized water for sports and what unique advantages holds ionized water compared with other alkaline water types ?
To fully understand what happens after exercise and why the body needs negative ions found in alkaline ionized water must read the article about what water ionization means . In short , the result of every move made ( which occurs with energy consumption ) is a positively charged body . molecules in your body are allowed to hold a positive charge. They are unavailable for future ‘ couplings ‘ unless we get a new batch of negative attractive ions quickly .
We will discuss next more common issues about ionized water (not only alkaline water ) and sports such as rehydration up to 6 times faster , remineralization of the body , delivery of active oxygen responsible for energy production , providing preventive antioxidants that protect against oxidation when cells are subjected to produce energy using oxygen.
Most people in general don’t drink enough water and it is a shame as nothing else hydrates like water. In fact, nothing hydrates like ionized water.
There is a new sports drink available from your own kitchen tap… innovative, smart, super antioxidant, rich in active oxygen, rich in alcaline minerals and super hydrating. It’s called ionized restructured water and it’s not sold in bottles anywhere. This water is available only from your own tap, whether you live in the city or the country. Similar to glacier or high mountain stream water, it’s ionized alkaline water made from your tap water !
The New York Yankees use ionized alkaline water during training and during their games! Teams that implement this new technology train harder, longer, and recover in a fraction of the time. They see more flexibility and fewer injuries. It’s the next big wave. Sports teams across the country and in Canada and Mexico are picking it up. High school athletic teams, professional sports teams, men and women’s amateur teams, olympic trainers and athletes…
“Running tap water through a water ionizer creates a miracle that can help put your body into a position of health you never imagined you could achieve.” from Bob McCauley (The Miraculous Properties of Ionized Water) It’s electrically charged with MANY extra negative hydrogen ions and alive with electrons which your body craves. It’s a liquid antioxidant, which is why we can call it the best substance that you can ever put into your body.
Learn more about this new sports drink called ionized water and how you, your family, and your team can benefit. Learn why Shan Stratton, the nutritional counselor for the New York Yankees for the past 14 years, has recommended and implemented the use of ionized water for the Yankees and Diamond Backs.
Read “What Every Athlete Needs to Know About Restructured Ionized Water” – by Wade T. Lightheart. Mr. Lightheart is a three time national body building champion out of Canada and has authored four or five training books that are well respected and easy to read.
He says, “Adding restructured ionized water to your current regimen will amplify your results and make you less likely to crash and burn... I guarantee it.” He says drinking “freshly made ionized, alkaline restructured water will absolutely improve your performance… For young athletes, please listen up – drink ion-rich restructured water instead of the acid-producing sports drinks. You’ll be amazed at the difference in your energy, your performance, and your recovery time.”
From: “Optimum Sports Nutrition—Your Competitive Edge”, by Dr. Michael Colgan
“The most important nutrient in your body is plain water. The quality of your tissues, their performance, and their resistance to injury, is absolutely dependent on the quality and quantity of the water you drink. And you have to drink it constantly. Light exercise in a temperate climate uses half a gallon of water a day in breath, sweat and urine. Athletes in heavy training use over two gallons a day….
You have just finished a tough endurance event. How do you get your body back to normal? First, and most important you are dehydrated. Second, your stomach is in a highly acid condition and almost empty. Third, your muscles are loaded with the debris of metabolism. Fourth, your glycogen reserves are depleted. Fifth, and least important, you are in electrolyte overload, because the percentage of body water lost is much greater than the percentage of body minerals lost. Rehydrate immediately by drinking plain cold water. Sip, don’t gulp. Coax yourself, because the thirst response is still inhibited after performance.”
“Your muscles work well only in a narrow range of almost zero acidity. Your arterial blood works best with no acid at all…As you begin to exercise, the increased use of muscle glycogen for energy produces lactic acid and pyruvic acid. These acids contain a lot of hydrogen ions (H+), which drive muscle and blood pH level down into the acid zone.
The harder you exercise, the quicker you go acid. As muscle pH level drops below 6.5, the acidity disrupts all sorts of links in the energy chain…Acidity also reduces muscle power directly by inhibiting the contractile action of muscle fibers.
So the first thing that a successful ergogenic supplement has to do is reduce the accumulation of acidity in exercising muscle. You can put all sorts of other chemicals into the bloodstream, but unless you reduce acidity during exercise, your muscles will tie up.”

“Alkaline ionized water (AKW) is used for the purpose of supplementing electrolytes and water lost by perspiration during exercise and for preserving health, because AKW is easily absorbed by the body and is excellent at regulating osmotic pressure in vivo.
From: “Confessions of a Body Builder” by Bob McCauley
“Ionized water is a powerful antioxidant that provides our body with an abundance of oxygen, which gives us energy…It balances our body pH…it is a powerful detoxifier and superior hydrator, up to six times more hydrating than conventional water.”
Unless your tap needs a clean, your water is probably as good as it’s going to get. But if you opt for ionized alkaline water, it increases the pH level of your blood ,delivers active oxygen for energy, antioxidants to protect from free radicals damage , improves hydration and more . In this study, mineral-enhanced H20 drinkers lost fluid at a slower rate than regular water swiggers, delivering improved cardiovascular performance.
The benefits? More energy during exercise and faster recovery afterwards.
What our “alkaline” athletes say:
|Michael ‘Rocky’ Katsidis, champion boxer |
“The alkaline ionised mineral water …has proved to be a wonderful partner in helping me move through the various stages to achieve a world championship. The ability of the alkaline waters to quickly hydrate my body cells, provide dissolved oxygen, act as an antioxidant, and help metabolise lactic acid buildup, is helping me achieve my goal of becoming a world champion.”
|Marj Chipperfield, World Champion |
At 82 Marj Chipperfield is a world champion. At this years World Masters Swimming championships in Canada, Marj won two gold (400m individual medley and one kilometer lake swim), two silver (200m backstroke and 100m freestyle) and one bronze (200m freestyle)
.“I have been drinking alkaline ionized mineral water… for the past two years. I simply love the refreshing taste; all the other benefits of increased oxygen content, anti-oxidant abilities, rapid absorption, and its higher pH to neutralize excess acidity are all extra-added bonuses. Thank you,your water is a blessing for the young and old alike.”

Doctor of Osteopathy(D.O.),Naturopathic Medical Doctor (N.M.D.) Dr.Johnson was featured on the best selling DVD “TheSecret.”
“As an alternative medical doctor and especially treating cancer,the most important psychological issue was emotions,but the most important physical issue was pH.In 1931, Otto Warburg received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering that a low oxygen environment in the tissues was the cause of cancer. The cause fora low oxygen level intissue is acid pH.
When I learned about alkaline water,I became very excited.We are now able to inundate a person’s body on a very basic level. Since a body is made up of almost 70 percent water,changing the alkalinity of that water would be a huge accomplishment.
Alkaline antioxidant water changes everything physiologically. It allows the enzyme systems to work the way they should.The alkalinity allows oxygen to get to the tissues.More importantly,it provides ready antioxidants to keep our bodies from rotting and rusting through the process of oxidation.
The alkaline antioxidant water solves two of the major problems that cause aging and disease: low pH and free radicals. It helps you get healthy and stay healthy by the alkalization of the blood and the antioxidant potential or the oxidation reduction potential ( ORP ).
The question is often asked: Who should be drinking the alkaline antioxidant water?The answer is simply, everyone from children to octogenarians.”
Ben Johnson M.D. endorses & recommends Jupiter/ AlkaViva water ionizers
- Robert O. Young Ph.D.,N.D.
In his book“The pH Miracle” Dr. Young says it this way: “Those willing to look again, and with clear eyes,will be rewarded with the secrets to permanent health.We can heal ourselves by changing the environment inside our bodies.Potentially harmful invaders then,will have nowhere to grow and will become harmless.”
High pH water,such as the water that comes from a good water ionizer, neutralizes acids throughout the entire body. Since acids underlie all disease entities, nothing makes more sense than neutralizing these acids.
One of my most often quoted statements goes like this: “When the fish is sick, change the water. We don’t feed the fish medicine. We give them clean water.When the cells of our body are sick, we must change the water and fluids in which all cells and tissues are bathed.”
I can’t think of any investment that is better for a person or a family than a good water ionizer.

- Theodore BaroodyD.C.,N.D.,Ph.D.,Dipl.Acu
Author of the book“Alkalize or Die”
“I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable.I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone.”“The countless names attached to illness do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause: too much tissue acid waste in the body.”
Theodore BaroodyD.C.,N.D.,Ph.D.,Dipl.Acu endorses & recommends Jupiter/ AlkaViva water ionizers
- Hidemitsu Hayashi M.D. HeartSurgeon, Director of the Water Institute ofJapan
Dr. Hayashi believes that ionized water is our best source of antioxidants. “There is no substitute for a healthy balanced diet, especially rich in antioxidant materials such as vitamin C,vitamin E, beta-carotene, and other foods that are good for us. However, these substances are not the best source of free electrons that can block the oxidation of healthy tissue by active oxygen. Water treated by electrolysis to increase its reduction potential is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals. We believe that reduced water,water with an excess of free electrons to donate to active oxygen, is the best solution because the reduction potential of water can be dramatically increased over other antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements and the molecule weight of reduced water is low.”
“Alkaline living water is regarded by a growing number of health care professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as a medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.”
- Ionized alkaline water is living water. All electrons in water either spin to the left or the right. High speed of the left spin of electrons is considered to substantiate that the water is vital and alive. Only ionized water has this quality.Did you know that ionized water produced by AlkaViva water ionizers has been tested for vitality/ Lifeforce, in Canada and compared to other “living waters”? Here are the results
- AlkaViva water ionizers are powerful living water generators, as shown in tests, not by words without backup.
- “Alkaline living water is regarded by a number of health professionals as the best water to drink and is listed as medical device in Japan for the treatment of degenerative diseases.” Dr Hidemitsu Hayashi heart surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japan
- And what is more alive and resembling in properties with natural waters as found in the valleys of longevity (we studied) than AlkaViva living water?
- Ionized alkaline water is the only water that has a low surface tension. Surface tension is measured in dynes. This allows for greater absorption of water and nutrients into the body.
- Ionized alkaline water has Super Conductive properties. Only ionized water holds an electrical charge. This is what gives water it’s vitality.
- Ray Kurzweil Ph.D.
Well renowned author & inventor. Dr. Kurzweil has received twelve honorary Doctorates and honors from three U.S. presidents.
“The most important feature of alkaline water produced by a water alkalinizer is its oxidation reduction potential (ORP).Water with a high negative ORP is of particular value in its ability to neutralize oxygen free radicals.ORP can alsobe directly testedusingan ORP sensor and meter. We have conducted these experiments as well. We found that water coming directly from the tap had an ORP of +290mV, while the water coming out of the water alkalinizer had a negative ORP.The more negative the ORP of a substance(that is, the higher its negative ORP),the more likely it is to engage in chemical reactions that donate electrons. These electrons are immediately available to engage in reactions that neutralize positively charged free radicals.This is the key benefit of water produced byawater alkalinizer that is not available by simply drinking water that has had some bicarb or other compounds dissolved in it to make it alkaline.”

“Mr. Yamada, the head of Police Research Institute, suffered from severe allergy. He was treated repeatedly by skin specialist, but with no success. Then he started consuming ionized water. The allergyresponded very well and was soon completely cured. No relapse had occurred, although he had taken all kinds of food. He was most grateful and excited about this treatment.
As for myself, I had also suffered severe allergy. Ever since I began to consume ionized water, the allergy has recovered. Since then, I started a research on the effectiveness of ionized water.
I discovered that most allergies is due to acidification of body condition and is also related to consuming too much meat and sugar. In every allergy case, the patient’s antioxidant minerals are excessively low which in turn lower the body resistance significantly. The body becomes overly sensitive and develops allergy easily. To stabilize the sensitivity, calcium solution is injected into the vein. Therefore, it is clear that the ionized water has ionic calcium, which can help alleviate allergy.
The ionic calcium not only enhances the heart, urination, and neutralization of toxins but controls acidity. It also enhances the digestive system and liver function. This will promote natural healing power and henceincrease its resistance to allergy. In some special cases of illness, which do not respond to drugs, it is found, it is found to respond well to ionized water.”
- Prof. Kuninaka Hironage, Head of Kuninaka Hospital
“Too many fats in the diets, which lead to the deposition of cholesterol on the blood vessels, which in turn constrict the blood flow, cause most illnesses such as high blood pressure. In accordance with thetheory of Professor Gato of Kyushu University on Vitamin K (because vitamin K enables the blood calcium to increase), or the
consumption of more antioxidant water, the effectiveness of the increase in the calcium in high blood pressure is most significant. The consumption of alkaline antioxidant water
for a period of 2 to 3 months, I have observed the blood pressure slowly drop, due to the water’s solvent ability, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels.”
- Prof. Kuwata Keijiroo, Doctor of Medicine, Japan
“In my opinion, the wonder of ionized water is the ability neutralizes toxins, but it is not a medicine. The difference is that the medicine can only apply to each and individual case. Whereas the ionized water can be consumed generally and it’s neutralizing power is something which is very much unexpected. Now, in brief, let me introduce to you a heart disease case and how it was cured.
The patient was a 35 years old male suffering from vascular heart disease. For 5 years, his sickness deteriorated. He was in the Setagays Government Hospital for treatment.
During those 5 years, he had been in and out of the hospital 5 to 6 times. He had undergone high tech examinations such as angiogram by injecting VINYL via the vein into the heart. He consulted and soughttreatment from many good doctors where later he underwent a major surgical operation. Upon his discharge from the hospital, he quit his job to convalesce. However, each time when his illness relapsed, theattack seemed to be even more severe. Last year, in August, his relatives were in despair and expected he would not live much longer. It so happened at that time that the victim’s relative came across ionized water processor. His illness responded well and he is now on the road to recovery.”
Note: In the United States, cardiovascular diseases account for more than one-half of the approximate 2 million deaths occurring each year. It is estimated that optimal conditioning of drinking water could reduce this cardiovascular disease mortality rate by as much as 15 percent in the United States.

“For over 10 years of my experience, my concept toward minerals, especially pertaining to ionic calcium in high blood pressure and other diseases is most significant.
In accordance to the theory of medical Professor Gato of Kyushu University on Vitamin K (because vitamin K enables the blood calcium to increase), or the consumption of more ionized water, the effectiveness of the increase in the calcium in high blood pressure is most significant. Too many fats in the diets, which lead to the deposition of cholesterol on the blood vessels, which in turn constrict the blood flow, cause most illnesses such as high blood pressure.
By drinking ionized water for a period of 2 to 3 months, the blood pressure should slowly drop, because the ionized water is a good solvent, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels.”

“Restructured alkaline water may well be the best element or supplement you can put in your body!Did you know the Japanese have researched this subject for over forty years and have found that drinking restructured alkaline water can relieve or reduce the three main causes for sickness,disease and pre‐mature aging?
Restructured alkaline water made using electrolysis has been consumed by the Japanese for over 40 years and has touched and changed every disease and condition imaginable. I have been using this water for over 6 years and have seen similar results when it is used persistently and consistently.The water is smooth, delicious,hydrating, energizing, permeating,pH balancing and a strong antioxidant.Does this sound like the water you should be drinking?I wish you all good health.. .”

“I am a researcher. I have researched dehydration for the past 20 years. When I discovered that the solution to most of the disease conditions of our society is not a money maker,I decided to take my information to the public.My research revealed that unintentional dehydration produces stress, chronic pains and many degenerative diseases. Dry mouth is not the only sign of dehydration and waiting to get thirsty is wrong.Medicine has based its understanding that it is solid matter in the body that regulates all functions of the body. I have explained scientifically at the molecular level that it is water that regulates all functions of the body including functions of solid matter.75 % of our bodies are composed of water.The brain is 85% water. It is water that energizes and activates the solid matter. If you don’t take enough water, some functions of the body will suffer. Dehydration produces system disturbances.When I use the words water cure,I am referring to curing dehydration with water.”
His message to the world is: “You are not sick, you are thirsty; don’t treat thirst with medication.”His ground‐ breaking book, “Your Body’s Many Cries for Water”, has been translated into 15 languages and has sold over a million copies.
- Henri Coanda the Romanian father of fluid dynamics and a Nobel Prize winner at 78 yrs old,spent six decades studying the Hunza water trying to determine what it was in this water that caused such beneficial effects for the body.He discovered that it had a different viscosity and surface tension.
Dr.Patrick Flanagan and others continued the research. They found Hunza water had a high alkaline pH and an extraordinary amount of active hydrogen (hydrogen with an extra electron), with a negative Redox Potential and a high colloidal mineral content.
Similar natural water properties and longevity are found in other remote unpolluted places such as the Shin‐Chan areas of China, the Caucasus in Azerbaijan, and in the Andes Mountains.
There are five locations in the world where scientists have found a type drinking water that exhibits extraordinary physical characteristics and where the inhabitants reportedly live to be over 100 years of age, are in excellent health, have no cancer, no dental caries, are robust and have children in their old age. They are called Hunzaland in the Karkorum Mountains just north of Pakistan in the Himalayas, the Vilcambamba in Ecuador, a high mountain valley in Georgia, Russia, another in Mongolia and the final one in Peru. Though all these areas have different cultures and diets, they all have one thing in common – their water has similar properties.We studied them & tried our best to replicate them!
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’ type=’textarea’/][/contact-form]
In efforts to recreate the Hunza water, Japanese scientists investigated Russian electrolysis technology.They found that electricity could be used to re‐ structure the water,giving it properties similar to Hunza water.
This functional water technology was first developed in Japan in the early 1950’s and the experiments were first conducted on plants and animals.
Full scale development started in 1954 by several agricultural universities on the effects of ionic water,especially acid water,on plants; experiments by Japanese doctors followed, using alkaline ionized water on their patients.
The first ionizers were large units used in hospitals.
Following efforts by Japanese medical doctors,the water ionizer was approved for medical therapeutics by the Japanese Ministry of Health and Rehabilitation in January 1966. Later they were also approved as medical devices by the government of South Korea.
Some 30 million people in Japan have used a water ionizer over the last 40 years.
- Sherry Rogers M.D.
Dr. Sherry Rogers is a medical doctor in private practice for over a quarter of a century.Her specialty is finding the cause of illness and getting rid of symptoms that are undiagnosable. Dr. Rogers has written books, scientific papers,and taught advanced courses to physicians learning these techniques. She has lectured in six countries and over fifty U.S.cities, and has been interviewed on dozens of television shows and radio programs, as well as having written numerous magazine articles.”No longer is a headache a Darvon deficiency.We now have the tools with which any symptom can be turned around,including many cancers,chemical sensitivity, allergies,and much more. “Alkaline water rids the body of acid waste…After carefully evaluating the results of my advice to hundreds of individuals,I’m convinced that toxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause of degenerative disease.”
- Susan Lark M.D.
Dr. Susan Lark, university lecturer and author of “The Chemistry of Success”,says: Drinking four to six glasses of alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over‐acidity and over time will help to restore your buffering ability. Alkaline water should be used when conditions of over‐acidity develop,such as cold,flu or bronchitis. Like vitamins C, E and Beta Carotene,alkaline water acts as an antioxidant because of its excess supply of free electrons. This can help the body against the development of heart disease,strokes, immune dysfunctions, and other common ailments.”
- Prof. Hatori Tasutaroo, Head of Akajiuiji Blood Centre, Yokohama Hospital, Faitama District: “Due to a higher standard of living, our eating habits have changed. We consume too much proteins, fats and sugar. The excess fats and carbohydrates are in the body as fats.
In the present lifestyles, Americans are more extravagant about food compared to the Japanese. Due to this excessive intake obesity is a significant problem. Normally, one out of five males and one out of fourfemales are obese.
The degree of “burn-out” in food intake largely depends on the amount on intake of vitamins and minerals. When excessive intake of proteins, carbohydrates and fats occurs, the requirement for vitamins and minerals increases. However, there is not much research carried out pertaining to the importance of vitamins and minerals.
Nowadays, many people suffer from acidification that leads to diabetes, heart diseases, cancer, liver and kidney diseases. If our food intake can be completely burned off, then there is no deposition of fats. Obviously, there will be no acidification problem and hence there should not be any sign of obesity.
The ionized water contains an abundance of ionic calcium. This ionic calcium helps in the “burn-off” process. By drinking ionized water, it provides sufficient minerals for our body. As a result, we do not need to watch our diet to stay slim.
Hence, ionized water is a savior for those differing from obesity and many adult diseases, providing good assistance in enhancing blood health.”
- Helmut G.Flasch M.D.
The “very clean waters”produced by reverse osmosis (which also issused by most bottled water companies) is called”hungry”or “death” water.It is so clean that nothing is left in it. The water is charged with positive ions instead of negative ions and is also acidic instead of alkaline. The water you drink is supposed to bring all nutrients to the destination and to flush out any free radicals. The only acidic are as in your body should be the stomach and the urine! Keeping your body alkaline, not acidic, is the answer. Having an alkaline body is the ultimate,most underlying answer,according to some of the most respected brains on this planet.All ways of living should be geared towards achieving an alkaline body!
- Keiichi Morishita M.D.,Ph.D.
in his book “The Hidden Truth of Cancer”says:
“If the blood develops a more acidic condition,then these excess acidic wastes have to be deposited somewhere in the body.If this un healthy process continues year after year, these areas steadily increase in acidity and their cells begin to die. Other cells in the affected area may survive by becoming abnormal; these are called malignant. Malignant cells cannot respond to brain commands. They undergo a c ellular division that is out of control. This isthe beginning of cancer.”
“Modern medicine.. treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria and viruses, it uses chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat cancer. Yet none of these treatments will help very much,if the environment of the body continues to remain acidic.”
Prof. Kuwata Keijiroo, Doctor of Medicine, Japan
“When I was serving in the Fire Insurance Association, I used to examine many diabetic patients. Besides treating them with drugs, I provided them with ionized water. After drinking ionized water for one month, 15 diabetic patients were selected and sent to Tokyo University for further test and observations.
Initially, the more serious patients were a bit apprehensive about the treatment. When the ionized water was consumed for some time, the sugar in the blood and urine ranged from a ratio of 300 mg/l to 2 mg/ dc.There was a time where the patient had undergone 5 to 6 blood tests a day and detected to be within normal range. Results also showed that even 1 1/2 hour after meals, the blood sugar and urine ratio was 100 mg/dc 0 mg/dc. The sugar in the urine has completely disappeared.”
- Harald Tietze
Harald Tietze, author of “Youthing“says that”by drinking alkaline water, the aging process can be reversed and the wastes can be reduced in the long‐term to a level of a much younger person. The functions of the organs can be revived.”
- Ingfreid Hobert M.D.
“You do not need expensive medicine with all the negative side effects to regain health… Alkaline water has profound long term effects because it alkalizes your body and provides an effective antioxidant.”

“The stomach is readily upset both by diseases affecting the stomach and by other general illnesses. In addition, any nervous tension or anxiety frequently causes gastric upset, vague symptoms when they are under some strain.
The important role of ionized water in our stomach is to neutralize the secretion and strengthen it s functions. Usually, after consuming the ionized water for 1 to 3 minutes, the gastric juices increase 1 1/2 times. For those suffering from hyperchlorhydria (excess stomach acid) or achlorhydria (low in stomach acid) the presence of ionized water will stimulate the stomach cells to secrete more gastric juice. This in turnenhances digestion and absorption of minerals.
However, on the other hand, those with hyperchlorhydria (excess stomach acid) the ionized water neutralizes the excessive gastric juice. Hence, it does not create any adverse reaction.
According to the medical lecturer form Maeba University, the pH of the gastric secretion will still remain normal when ionized water is consumed. This proves that the ability of the ionized water is able to neutralize as well as to stimulate the secretion.”

Dr. Ecano says that”if the world has accepted antioxidants to slow down the aging process,it should readily agree to the uses of ionized alkaline water as an anti‐aging agent.Their roles are closely linked and intertwined such that a lasting anti‐aging program is incomplete without addressing both free radicals and organic acid wastes.”

“Ionized water improves body constituents and ensures effective healing to many illnesses. The uses of ionized water in gynecological patients have proved to be very effective. The main reason for its effectiveness is that this water can neutralize toxins.
When given ionized to pre-eclamptic toxemia cases, the results are very significant. During my long years of servicing the pre-eclamptic toxemia cases, I found that the women with pre-eclamptic toxemia who consumed ionized water tend to deliver healthier babies with stronger muscles. A survey report carried out on babies in this group has intelligence above average.”

“Eczema is used to describe several varieties of skin conditions, which have a number of common features. The exact cause or causes of eczema are not fully understood. In many cases, eczema can be attributedby external irritants.
Let me introduce a patient who recovered from skin disease after consuming the ionized water. This patient suffered 10 years of eczema and could not be cured effectively even under specialist treatment. This patient, who is 70 years of age, is the President of a vehicle spare parts company. After the war, his lower limbs suffer acute eczema, which later became chronic. He was repeatedly treated in a specialist skin hospital.
The left limb responded well to treatment, but not so on the right limb. He suffered severe itchiness, which, when scratched led to bleeding. During the last 10 years, he was seen and treated by many doctors. When I first examined him, his lower limb around the joints was covered with vesicles. Weeping occurred owing to serum exuding from the vesicles.
I advised him to try consuming ionized water. He bought a unit and consumed the ionized water religiously and used the acidic water to bathe the affected areas. After 2 weeks of treatment the vesicles dried up. The eczema was completely cleared without any relapse after 1 1/2 month.”

Dr Kerijiroo explains that for severe kidney failure, water intake has to be restricted. However whereas ordinary tap water “contains phosphate, calcium carbonate and the acidic ions. . . . [that] tend to reducethe efficiency of the calcium ions. . . .” he feels that in controlled amounts, Alkaline Ionic water will “strengthen the heart and increase urination.”
He goes on to claim that over the next six to twelve months, the patient should maintain an alkaline diet (reduced animal protein) and continue drinking the Alkaline Ionic water to reduce the amounts of urea and uric acidin the blood. He also feels that, through his clinical experience that patients undergoing kidney d ialysis should also drink Alkaline Ionic water as well as those patients with kidney disease who do not respond to drugs.
Clinical Studies and Scientific Research on Ionized Water
Scientists refer to alkaline, ionized water as ‘negative’ water, reduced water, or electrolyzed reduced water (ERW) because of the water’s negative electrical charge, measured in mill volts.
Acidic, ionized water is called oxidizing water or electrolyzed oxidizing water (EOW) because of it’s positive electrical charge.

Ever Seen a Glacial Stream or an Iceberg?
It`s blue with minerals. It tastes totally different. It seems to enter the body lightly. It presents no resistance and you don`t `bloat` like you may do with tap water or even filtered water. And the minerals are there not just to offer you those elements your system lacks, but also to `hold` the real secret of glacial water; its antioxidant power. Strong, pure hydroxyl ions, actively seek out positively charged oxygen free radicals already wrecking havoc on our bodies at a cellular level.
This is naturally occurring ionized water. Now technology has delivered a `clean` answer to us in the form of alkaline, water ionizers. Water or H20 (Two Hydrogen atoms, one oxygen atom) is split into two separate streams of water – acidic waste water and drinkable alkaline water, rich in minerals.
OH- One atom of Oxygen and one atom of hydrogen negatively charged create the Hydroxyl ion. These are abundant in the prized alkaline water that we drink and love.
This `splitting` of the H20 Molecule happens in a sealed ionization chamber, under exact control of a dedicated microcomputer, to ensure the exact result time after time. As filtered tap water passes across 5 specially designed Titanium electrodes, it separates into the two components mentioned above.
We drink the alkaline ionized water and we apply the acid water. How simple and how wonderful!
So What’s all this about “pH”?
Fact:Almost all of us are negativelly affected by excess acidity.
Fact: This need not be. Help is at hand.
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 water!
Tap Water – What It Is and Isn`t
On the pH scale of 0 to 14, normal tap water measures out an approximately neutral 7, or slightly either side; acid in the case of rainwater, alkaline in the case of chemically altered municipal supplies or in hard water areas.
This water can be measured with a pH or ORP meter, and its redox (oxidation reduction potential) is +400 to +500 mV. Because it has a positive redox potential, it is apt to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules, and then rob your body of electrons in the form of energy..
Reduced Ionized Water, on the other hand, has a negative redox potential of approximately -250 to -800 mV. This means it has a large mass of electrons ready to donate to electron-thieving active oxygen. It is `Live Water`, similar in atomic structure to the waters that the Hunzakuts drink directly from glacial streams in the high Himalayas.
How Your Water Ionizer Unit Works
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 on tap water before you drink it or use it in the kitchen for cooking or cleaning.
A special attachment redirects tap water out of the faucet through a plastic hose into the water ionizer unit. Inside the unit, the water is first filtered which helps to remove common pollutants found in city water. Then this filtered water passes into a chamber equipped with platinum-coated titanium electrodes. Here is where the electrolysis takes place.
Cations, positive ions, gather at the negative electrodes creating cathodic or reduced water. Anions, negatively charged ions, gather at the positive electrode to make anodic or oxidized water. By this electrolysis process the reduced water not only gains an excess amount of electrons (e-), but the H2O clusters are reduced in size from about 10 to 13 molecules per cluster to 5 to 6 molecules per cluster.
The reduced ionized water comes out of the faucet, and the oxidized water comes out of a separate hose leading into the sink. You can use the reduced water for drinking or cooking. The oxidation potential of the oxidized water makes it a good sterilizing agent, helpful for washing your hands, cleaning food or kitchen utensils, and treating minor wounds and eczema.
