Water Ionizers Create Artificially Alkaline Water

Water Ionizer Rumor of the Week

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.

Rumor of the Week: Ray Kurzweil Reviews/Recommends Ionizer Brands

blah_blah_blah

Okay – so admittedly I don’t do these on a weekly basis.  There’s just something about the propagating negativity that I find distasteful – at some point I’ll probably change this category to “Fact or Fiction” or something like that.

All that aside, there is something that has been rearing its head again recently that I felt the needed clarification/debunking.  Ray Kurzweil is arguably one of the most tireless scientists, researchers, writers, inventors of our time.  His honors, inventions, accolades and publications are too numerous to mention – and perhaps even keep up with.  What hasn’t this man done?

Well, from my research he hasn’t reviewed water ionizers.  Nor has he come out with an open endorsement of any one water ionizer company, brand, make or model…

Customer experience with alkaline water and high blood pressure.

“Joyce” first noticed an increase in energy and mental clarity along with relief from joint pain.  When she returned to have her high blood pressure checked, the results were so positive that her doctor thought she had been taking prescription medication.

ORP – Alkaline Water vs Alkaline Ionized Water

The ORP of alkaline water is where alkaline ionized water drinkers get the biggest benefits.

“Oxidation reduction potential” or “ORP” as it is referred to in the water ionizer industry, equals antioxidant potential.

While drinking alkaline water offers benefits over drinking regular tap or bottled water, the ORP (oxidation reduction potential) of the water is the true measure of its potential health benefits.

Not all “alkaline water” is equal when it comes to ORP.

Benefits of Alkaline Water

alkaline waterFirst things first – there is a difference between “alkaline water” and “alkaline ionized water.”  Alkaline water is water that above neutral on the pH scale – typically, any water that tests 8.0 or higher is considered “alkaline water.”

Alkaline ionized water is water that both has an alkalinity of 8.0 or higher and has been restructured at the molecular level.
