In a study entitled: Ionized alkaline water: new strategy for management of metabolic acidosis in experimental animals, by El Mansoura Urology and Nephrology Center, Mansoura University, Egypt. [PMID: 19527469], researches found significant improvement in acid levels – and their renal health – with dogs that were given alkaline Ionized Water – compared with those who were given tap water or purified water.
Alkaline ionized water can be considered as a major safe strategy in the management of metabolic acidosis secondary to renal failure or dialysis or urinary diversion. Human studies are indicated in the near future to confirm this issue in humans. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19527469
This is the not the first time that Ionized Water has been examined scientifically. Here is a compilation of studies on both Acid Ionized Water and Alkaline Ionized Water.
