About 70% of our body mass is composed of water, and this has a great influence on the vital processes that occur in our bodies. Human beings can survive longer without food than without water. We often misleadingly feel hunger, when it is water that our body actually needs. Having all of this in mind, everyone should always remember one simple rule: stay hydrated every day. However, it is not only the amount of water you consume that matters. The quality and properties of the water you drink matters just as much. The question still remains: do we really take full advantage of all the properties that water has to offer?
A multitude of studies show that acidification of the body is at the bottom of all disease. Accordingly, an acid–alkaline balance is the prerequisite of good health. As a matter of fact, the maintenance of vital functions of the body depends on adequate blood alkalinity level within a narrow range of 7.35 and 7.45 pH. Only high alkaline blood is able to supply the organism with nutrients and eliminate metabolic waste that our cells produce.
In modern conditions, however, this is quite a challenge. Inappropriate diet, stress, negative emotions promote the formation of acidic waste. This may not be a problem at a very young age. However, with the lapse of time the ability of the body to eliminate waste declines and the latter starts to accumulate. The body’s inner environment is gradually acidified and the increasing prevalence of positive hydrogen ions shows up. As a result, the blood alkalinity level drops and the risk of related diseases grows.
Alkaline water is distinguished by a negative oxidation-reduction potential (ORP=-100…-200mV), indicating powerful antioxidant properties. This means that it has plenty of free electrons to give away to free radicals.
Oxidation-reduction reactions or exchange of electrons between atoms or groups of atoms are the basis of all natural chemical processes. Atoms lacking electrons try to steal them from other atoms. These are called free radicals – unstable molecules with an unpaired electron. They form as a result of oxidation reactions in the human body (oxidation is the gain of oxygen). Free radicals have high positive oxidation potential. Seeking out electrons, they continuously attack healthy cells, thus disturbing their normal activity and even destroying cellular structure. This process may trigger uncontrollable chemical reactions, leading to a number of pathological conditions in the human body.
Ionised acidic water is obtained through the process of electrolysis in a container separated from the alkaline water receptacle. Ionised acidic water has a weak positive electric charge. It can be distinguished by its sour taste and acidic odour with a slight whiff of chlorine.
The unique characteristics of acidic water (otherwise called dead water) are determined by the presence of negative chlorine, sulphur, phosphorus and hydrogen H+ ions in its composition. The greater concentration of hydrogen ions means stronger acidic qualities and lower pH values. Ph is a negative hydrogen ion concentration logarithm and is also known as the hydrogen index. As the concentration of hydrogen H+ ions increases in the fluid, its pH value drops. This means that acidity increases and alkalinity decreases.
It is recommended to start drinking ionised alkaline water at low levels (between 8.0pH and 8.6pH). Once your body have adjusted to the new antioxidants-enriched water, which is around 1-2 weeks, then you can drink your chosen pH level every day.
Please avoid to take medicines with alkaline ionized water and persons with achlorhydria should avoid to drink alkaline ionized water.
Persons with chronic symptoms or with weakened physical condition should consult their doctor before drinking alkaline ionized water
If you feel abnormal or strange after drinking or if there are no apparent improvement in symptoms despite continued drinking, please terminate drinking the ionised water and consult your doctor.
Free radicals are molecular structures lacking one electron. They form naturally within the body as a result of vital processes and play a crucial role in protecting us from various bacteria and viruses by destroying altered cells. The issue arises when body produces a surplus of free radicals. The need to acquire the missing electron force free radicals to constantly attack healthy cells, thus impairing cell and organ functions, which leads to various diseases.
The recommended water pH for daily consumption is 8.4-8.8. Based on the recommendations of nutrition specialists, a person’s daily intake of water should be 30 ml of water per kg of weight (for example, a person that weighs 70 kg should drink 2.1 litres of water a day (0.03 l x 70).
It varies from person to person. You might start noticing a positive response in as little as one day or within a few weeks.
ORP is a measure of anti-oxidant power. A negative ORP means that a substance can donate free electrons, making it an antioxidant. A positive ORP means that a substance steals electrons, making it a free radical. The lower ORP level the more anti-oxidant characteristics a substance have.
