We all know that water is a crucial to our health and well being but what may people don’t know is that not all water is created equal. So before you fill up your glass, there are three main properties that make ionized water (also known as magic water in our office) different from any other water. It has anti-oxidation, micros-clustering and alkaline properties which is like an h20 superpower that basically kicks tap water to the curb. It works like this:
Tap water enters the ionizer where it passes an internal filter where impurities and chemicals are removed. The filtered water then passes through a series of electrically charged electrodes or “plates” where a positive and negative charge separates the ions of water into two streams. One of the streams is acidic or “positive” water and one is alkaline which is “negative” water. That ionized or negative water is loaded with active hydrogen which serves as an antioxidant that neutralizes the free radicals that try to steal the good energy from your healthy cells. Not only that, but due to the micro clustering of ionized water your body is able to absorb the water molecules more effectively which means faster hydration! Test it out sometime at the gym or on a hike, you’ll notice the difference!
Lastly, as if you needed any more reason to switch over, ionized water is like a natural detox for your body. Most people have no idea about the importance of maintaining a balanced pH level in their blood. A major imbalance of the blood’s pH can lead to severe problems and even death in extreme cases! When pH values adjust to dangerous levels, the body will steal rich minerals from other areas of the body to to compensate and re balance your blood. Doesn’t that sound like robbing Peter to pay Paul? Your body is an amazing thing, but stealing from itself doesn’t seem like the brightest idea. It is a temporary solution to but could lead to complications or death later on. You may notice that you are excusing yourself to use the restroom at bit more in the first week or so, which is actually a really good thing– it means you are getting rid of toxins!
In a nutshell, drinking alkaline rich water replenishes the necessary minerals, balances the acidity in your body and gets rid of toxins. Therefore keeping you healthy, hydrated and alive! You can find bottled versions of ionized water at your local health food store or spend a pretty penny on an ionizer for your home!
