Water Ionizer GuideIf you have found that searching for a water ionizer has left you frustrated and confused, you are not alone. It seems like every company claims to be the best and many go out of their way to bash their competition. How can you possibly get a good feeling about any of them?
You are also faced with the “quack watcher” types and those who market other types of water filtration products who claim that it is impossible to ionize water. What is troubling is that nobody in the water ionizer industry makes an effort to explain how and why water ionizers work so that people can feel confident in buying a water ionizer.
Finally, for most of us, there is always that nagging question at the back of your mind: “Why are such simple machines so expensive?” There is no need for the process to be confusing because the answers are really quite simple.
How water becomes ionizedThere are two kinds of water ionizers: electric and natural. Both types of systems infuse the water with energy by producing free hydrogen. The water will help you become more alkaline over time and act as a powerful antioxidant that will neutralize free radicals. Natural water ionizers will also add essential elements such as Magnesium and Calcium that are vital to your health.
When you read comments about water ionizers being a scam, the authors may mean well, but they haven’t done their homework. It is true that pure water can’t be ionized, but it is also true that alkali elements in the water can be ionized. The hydrogen that is liberated in the ionization process becomes a source of pure and healthy energy for your body.
Electric water ionizers concentrate the alkali elements available in your source water at a negatively charged point anode on their electrical plates and then direct them to the drinking rod. Natural water ionizers simply add alkali elements. It is the reaction of water molecules combining with energy donating alkali elements such as Magnesium and Calcium that creates ionization.
How your body can become more alkaline over timeDespite what you might read on the internet, you can alter the pH of your body fluids over time. While the body has mechanisms to keep everything in equilibrium, it is a well documented medical fact that an acidic diet leads to your body becoming more acidic over time. It only stands to reason that if your body can become more acidic with the consumption of unhealthy acidic foods and drinks, it can also become less acidic or even alkaline with a different dietary strategy. There have been many scientific studies conducted (which can be seen on the American National Institute of Health website www.pubmed.com) which confirm that drinking alkaline water can and does make your body more alkaline over time.
The naysayers argue that your stomach is acidic and will neutralize alkaline food or water. They are correct, but they are only giving you one half of the scientific equation. When the cells in the walls of your stomach create HCl (hydrochloric acid) to facilitate the breakdown of food, they also create alkaline bicarbonates as a by-product of the balancing half of the scientific equation.” You can’t create an acidic reaction without also creating an alkaline reaction.
The alkaline bicarbonates enter your intestines at an alkaline pH level of approximately 8.2. Your body requires it to be ”just so” in order to function properly. When your diet includes unhealthy acidic food and liquids, the cells in the stomach wall will not be required to produce as much acid, which means that you are not producing the bicarbonates that your body needs.
Your stomach doesn’t know the difference between healthy alkaline food and healthy alkaline water when it comes to the acid/alkaline balance in your body. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that drinking alkaline water will produce the same healthy results that make you look and feel younger.

Things you should know before buyingThe goal should always be to drink “clean” (contaminants removed) and “healthy” (full of energy) water. Water ionizer systems vary widely in their capability to deal with both the “clean” and “healthy” sides of the equation.
