Alkaline Water Articles
Ray Kurzweil Ph.D. Scientist, well renowned author & inventor “There are more benefits to alkaline water than simply the alkalinity or pH. The most important feature of alkaline water produced by a water ionizer is its Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP). Water with a high Negative ORP is of particular value in its ability to neutralize oxygen free radicals. The negative ions in alkaline water from an electrolysis machine are a rich source of electrons that can be donated to these free radicals in the body, neutralizing them and stopping them from damaging healthy tissues. This is the key benefit of the alkaline water produced by a water ionizer that is not available by
Another benefit of drinking ionized alkaline water is that it assists in the absorption of minerals. We know that if the body is not absorbing enough minerals, itwill rob minerals from the body's mineral reserves, chiefly calcium from the bones. By drinking high Negative ORP alkaline water, you combat metabolic acidosis and improve absorption of nutrients. Drinking ionized alkaline water helps reduce the burden on the limited alkaline buffers which are needed
for the body's natural detoxification processes.”
Stefan Kuprowsky N.D. “The most amazing property of ionized alkaline water is its antioxidant properties. This means that the alkaline water itself has the ability to neutralize free radicals. This is because alkaline ionized water contains hydroxyl ions with an overabundance of electrons which can be easily donated to neutralize free radicals. This is like taking antioxidant vitamins and minerals in the water you drink. One glass of ionized alkaline water has the same antioxidant activity as one glass of fresh juice. This is a powerful benefit of alkaline ionized water and worth the unit cost because of this one feature alone.
Alkaline ionized water is up to six times more hydrating than regular water. The smaller clusters are able to scavenge free radicals with greater ease, increasing the antioxidant properties. Ionized alkaline water also improves the detoxification qualities of water because of its improved hydration of body tissues.”
Ben Johnson M.D., Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.), Naturopathic Medical Doctor (N.M.D.) “As an alternative medical doctor and especially treating cancer, the most important psychological issue was emotions, but the most important physical issue was pH. In 1931, Otto Warberg received the Nobel Prize in Medicine for discovering that a low oxygen environment in the tissues was the cause of cancer. The cause for a low oxygen level in tissue is acid pH. When I learned about alkaline water, I became very excited. We are now able to inundate a person's body on a very basic level.
Since a body is made up of almost 70 percent water, changing the alkalinity of that water would be a huge
accomplishment. Alkaline antioxidant water changes everything physiologically. It allows the enzyme systems to work the way they should. The alkalinity allows oxygen to get to the tissues. More importantly, it provides ready antioxidants to keep our bodies from rotting and rusting through the process of oxidation. The question is often asked: ‘Who should be drinking the alkaline antioxidant water?’ The answer is simply, everyone from children to octogenarians.”
Robert O. Young Ph.D., N.D. “When the fish is sick, change the water. We don’t feed the fish medicine. We give them clean water. When the cells of our body are sick, we must change the water and fluids in which all cells and tissues are bathed.
High pH water, such as the water that comes from a good ionizer, neutralizes acids throughout the entire body. Since acids underlie all disease entities, nothing makes more sense than neutralizing these acids. I can't think of any investment that is better for a person or a family than a good water ionizer.”
Fereydoon Batmanghelidj M.D. researcher & advocate of the simple and the natural in medicine “Chronic unintentional cellular dehydration painfully and prematurely kills. Its initial outward manifestations have until now been labeled as diseases of unknown origin. You are not sick, you are thirsty!”
Hidemitsu Hayashi M.D. Heart Surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japan Dr. Hayashi believes that ionized water is our best source of antioxidants. “There is no substitute for a healthy balanced diet, especially rich in antioxidant materials such as vitamin C, vitamin E, beta-carotene, and other foods that are good for us. However, these substances are not the best source of free electrons that can block the oxidation of healthy tissue by active oxygen. Water treated by electrolysis to increase its reduction potential is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals. We believe that reduced water, with an excess of free electrons to donate to active oxygen, is the best solution because the reduction potential of water can be dramatically increased over other antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements, and the molecule weight of reduced water is low.”
Theodore Baroody D.C., N.D., Ph.D., Dipl. Acu. Author of the book Alkalize or Die "I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone. The countless names attached to illness do not really matter. What does matter is that they all come from the same root cause: too much tissue acid waste in the body."
David S. Dyer N.M.D., Ph.D. “Even with good health, I don’t want to challenge my immune system every time I go to the tap for a drink of water. A recent research project using specially bred mice that have a weakened immune system had some astonishing results. One group of mice was given plain tap water resulting in an average life span of 235 days. A second group given restructured alkaline water had an average life span of 346 days. The restructured alkaline water significantly increased the second group’s life span and strengthened their immune system.
All water does not help hydrate the body efficiently. Take distilled water for example. This water is dead and devoid of all minerals. It is very acidic and will tend to dehydrate you. All distilled water I have checked is about a 4.5 pH, that means this water is 1000 times more acidic than your blood, which is a 7.35 pH. Distilled water must be neutralized and where do you think your body gets the calcium to accomplish this? I’ll leave that deduction up to you. Reverse Osmosis water has many of the same problems. R/O water averages around a 5 pH, 100 times more acidic than your blood.
What most people don’t know is that if your (tissue) pH drops below 5.8 you cannot absorb vitamins A, B, E, F and K. Nor can you absorb valuable minerals like sulphur, potassium, calcium, vanadium, chromium, iron or zinc, no matter how much of these minerals you take. The majority of people we check have a urine pH below 5.8 and don’t realize that they are wasting their money on supplements. Restructured alkaline water is the fastest and most efficient way to alkalize your body.
The Ph level of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated.... indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. The most powerful program to reduce or eliminate these effects is to remove acid from the blood and tissues with an alkaline lifestyle and wise dietary and water consumption choices. If someone were to ask me, ‘What is the one thing I can do to have better health?’ The answer would be very simple, start drinking alkalized and ionized water!"
