Health Benefits of Alkaline Ionized Water (AIW)
Alkaline Ionized Water [AIW] is produced by the process of electrolysis in which the water molecule is reduced in size and is changed in shape to hexagonal. Water molecules cannot stand alone but form in clusters. Normally, a Water Molecule Cluster is around 12 -16 in number. After the ionization process, a Water Cluster consists of 4-6 molecules with a reduction of surface tension.
This smaller size and shape allows the ionized water molecules to more effectively penetrate the tissue and cells of the body and provides for better transportation of nutrients and increased hydration. The decreased surface tension and hexagonal shape of the ionized water molecules makes it easier to remove acid waste from your cells which cause Toxemia, the root of all degenerative diseases such as cancer.
AIW helps balance your body's pH. In general, our bodies are out of balance and have become too acidic. A body that is too acidic provides the ideal environment for diseases to manifest and thrive in. AIW helps reverse the aging process and is especially effective in the treatment of Diabetes, Constipation, Allergies, Migraines, Ulcers, High Blood Pressure, Hypertension, Obesity, Osteoporosis, Cleansing of the Intestinal Tract & Circulator Problems
Alkaline Ionized Water can change the body chemistry to alkaline, which facilitates the Anti Oxidant Process in reducing oxidative stress on the body allowing the cells to discharge excess water and toxins, resulting in weight loss with increased health and energy.
Oxygen levels in our body are depleted through stress, environmental pollution, improper diet and lack of exercise. An enriched oxygen level helps destroy cancer cells, removes waste, carries nutrients and helps in resisting bacteria and viruses that invade our bodies.
Oxidation Reduction Potential [ORP]
ORP stands for Oxidation-Reduction Potential. We are all familiar with iron rusting [oxidizing]. Oxidation means to break down – to burn up -- to rust and decay. Negative ORP helps prevent oxidation from taking place in the cells of our bodies. In general, our bodies are out of balance and have become too acidic which increases the potential for oxidation of our cells, providing the ideal environment for diseases to manifest and thrive in.
With our bodies under such a state of siege [acidity] harmful Free Radicals are produced which create oxidation and destruction of healthy body cells. Through the Negative ORP of Alkaline Ionized Water, Hydroxyl Ions are produced which help increase oxygen production, neutralize harmful Free Radicals, increase our energy level, correct our body's Acid/Alkalinity Balance and increase Cell Hydration, with a general reduction of damage to our cells and less likelihood for degenerative diseases to occur.
ORP is an electrical charge that is produced by the process of water electrolysis. ORP is measured in millivolts [mV]. A high Positive ORP -- such as found in most wells and city tap water -- creates oxidation and accelerates the adverse health effects caused by harmful Free Radicals. Normal tap water has a Positive ORP of about +150 to +450 mV which increases the propensity to acquire electrons from other molecules and create Free Radical Damage to healthy cells. Only a Negative ORP can act as an Anti-Oxidant, negating the adverse effects of Positive ORP.
For maximum health benefits, Alkaline Ionized Water [AIW] must have a Negative ORP of at least -250 mV with a large mass of electrons ready to combine with and counteract the detrimental effects of Free Radicals. Alkaline Ionized Water is a powerful Anti-Oxidant [Free Radical Scavenger] that protects cells from damage and promotes heath. Alkaline Ionized Water is the most effective and economical source of Anti-Oxidant on the planet.
