Do you know the PH of the water you are drinking? You should.
Water is one of the most important factors for becoming and staying healthy and vibrant. Our body contains 70% water contents and our blood is 94% water – if we follow the recommendation to drink at least two liters of water per day and this water is acidic and polluted – imagine what this will do to our bodies? Therefore, it’s important to keep that water supply fresh and clean.

IONIZING THE WATER
When considering what water to be drinking, there are 4 different criteria that the water you drink should be judged by: Purity, pH, Mineral Content and Oxygen Content. In order to hydrate your body optimally, you need to drink water that is alkaline and mineral rich. Alkaline water helps to neutralize acids and remove toxins from the body. Ionic alkaline water also acts as a conductor of electrochemical activity from cell to cell.
A water ionizer is an appliance that ionizes water. Ionized water is claimed by manufacturers to be extremely beneficial to human health and marketed with claims that it is an antioxidant which can slow aging and prevent disease.Others note that such claims contradict basic laws of chemistry and physiology.
A water ionizer separates water into alkaline and acid fractions using a process known as electrolysis. It does this by exploiting the electric charge of the calcium and magnesium ions present in nearly all sources of drinking water. When a source of water lacks mineral ions, such as distilled water, or has been filtered by reverse osmosis, water ionization has no effect.
Some research suggests that alkaline reduced water may be useful in scavenging free radicals in the laboratory setting. Tests on in vitro lymphocytes suggest that reduced water can prevent hydrogen peroxide-induced damage to DNA, RNA and certain proteins. However, drinking ionized water would not be expected to alter the body’s pH, and there is no evidence of any claims made by manufacturers that drinking ionized water will have a noticeable effect on the body.
Electrolyzed water has been used by the food industry to sanitize food products; though effective in bacterial solutions, it was found less useful when sanitizing utensils, surfaces and food products.Acidic electrolyzed water (pH 2.3–2.6) may have use as a seed surface disinfectant or contact bactericide.
