10 Incredible Health Benefits
of Ionized Alkaline Water
What are the health benefits of alkaline water? Let's take a look!
Natural springs and sources of “healing water” have been found around the world.
Such places include the waters of:
- Nordenau, Germany
- Tlacote, Mexico
- Hita Tenryosui, Japan
Water from these sources has been documented to have 2 beneficial properties:
- Negative electrical charge, or pH
- Some level of dissolved molecular hydrogen
Plus, the water is free of contaminants.
Tens of thousands of people visit locations with healing water every day to seek relief from illness and disease. But you don’t have to…
You Can Enjoy Healing Water in Your Home
With a water ionizer, you can transform your tap water into clean water with enhanced health benefits.
Alkaline ionized water from a water ionizer has a negative pH and molecular hydrogen—just like the healing waters of the world.
Ionized Water Is Used As A Medical Treatment in Japan
Water ionizers have been used in Japan and other parts of Asia for more than 40 years. The health benefits of alkaline water have been studied extensively. The name used in research is “electrolyzed reduced water.”
Alkaline ionized water from a water ionizer is recognized as a medical treatment and is used in the health care systems of Japan and South Korea.
10 Health Benefits of Alkaline Water
What benefits can you expect from drinking alkaline water from a water ionizer? Let’s take a look at the facts and what research is finding.
1) Boosts Your Immune System
Drinking alkaline ionized water balances the pH levels in your body and helps fight free radicals. These two things are critical for maintaining overall health and for optimal functioning of the immune system.
2) Helps with Weight Loss
Your body stores excess acids from diet, pollution and stress in fat cells. Being more alkaline neutralizes fatty acids, so the body can let go of its protective layer of fat.
3) Boosts Longevity
In a 3-year study published in the peer-reviewed international journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, mice were broken into 3 groups. All mice were fed the same food. One group drank made with a water ionizer. Another group drank water made with a concentrated alkaline solution. The final group drank tap water.
The group given alkaline water from a water ionizer lived the longest and had the least damage to their organs.
4) Aids in Detoxification
Having ionized alkaline water in your home gives you a gentle, effective body cleansing every day. It helps trap and flush out toxins. Research shows that drinking this type of water helps detoxify heavy metals from the body.
5) Supports Healthy Digestion
After clinical testing, the Japanese Ministry of Health certified water ionizers as medical devices for the treatment of digestive upset. In clinical studies, 88% of patients with mild digestive upset found relief over time simply by drinking ionized alkaline water.
6) Slows Aging
Peer-reviewed studies from laboratories worldwide show that ionized water—due to its high negative ORP (high antioxidant potential)—scavenges free radicals, protecting the body from oxidative damage.
7) Helps Fight Cancer
In controlled lab experiments, Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg discovered that cancer won’t survive in an alkaline environment. Multiple studies are backing up this claim and proving that ionized alkaline water has the ability to fight cancer.
8) Lowers Diabetes Risk
Dr. Keijiro Kuwabara of Japan has been treating diabetes successfully with alkaline water for many years. In multiple studies, ionized water has been found to increase the release of insulin and decrease blood glucose and HbA1c levels significantly.
9) Supports Brain Health
Research presented by the European Society for Animal Cell Technology at a 2011 meeting found that ionized alkaline water has neuroprotective effects.
The researchers said it could be beneficial for the prevention and treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson’s.
10) Assists Heart Health and Reduces Blood Pressure
Alkaline water with a high mineral content has been shown to lower the occurrence of heart and cardiovascular disease. In a 2004 study conducted by a Swedish researcher found that drinking alkaline water reduced blood pressure.
Influence Water ionizers give you drinking water with all these health benefits and more.
