Someone recently pointed out an article that claimed that water ionizers create “artificially alkaline” water. The claim is that the alkalinity of the water is artificially raised through the electrolysis/ionization process – that the pH is “artificial” because of a gap between the pH of alkaline ionized water and the actual presence of alkaline minerals in the water.
This is yet another false rumor in a long list of misinformation out there about water ionizers and the alkaline water industry. Here’s a rundown of the “artificial” claims and the facts about alkaline water created by water ionizers.
The health benefits of ionized water are based cell hydration and anti-oxidation. Through ionization, the water molecules are altered decreasing their cluster size by half and restructured into hexagonal rings. These smaller water molecules are more easily absorbed by the body. Absorption is further boosted by living organism’s natural preference for hexagonal structure.
