Rejuvenation through Ionized Water
Ionized Water is a Powerful Antioxidant. Imagine having the ability to take normal tap water and turn it into an antioxidant with a NEGATIVE ORP (or charge), which retards the aging process. Put simply, a high or rising ORP causes oxidation and therefore aging. The negative ORP of Ionized Water literally retards the aging process by counteracting this rising ORP. Ionized Water essentially renews us at a cellular level. This is as close as we can ever hope to get to a Fountain of Youth, as incredible as that may sound.
For instance, real fresh squeezed orange juice has a negative ORP of -250. Although we can only drink a few glasses of fresh orange juice in a day, we can drink as much Ionized Water as we wish to a day. Many people drink as much two gallons of Ionized Water per day.
Ionized Water’s other Antioxidant property which also provides the body with lots of oxygen. The other Antioxidant quality of Ionized Water is hydroxyl ions. These are oxygen molecules with an extra electron attached to them as are all antioxidants such as vitamins A, C and E. Hydroxyl ions scavenge for free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that cause damage to us. Once the hydroxyl antioxidant and free radical have canceled each other, the result is that the body is provided with lots of oxygen and therefore lots of energy. Oxygen is one of the most exhausted nutrients in our body because of our diet and the Earth’s oxygen-depleted environment today. Oxygen destroys cancer cells as well as bacteria and viruses invading the body. It carries away acid waste from body tissue. It is vital to human health, perhaps our most important nutrient. A glass of strong Ionized Water first thing in the morning naturally helps you to wake up.
To get the full power of Negatively Charged, Antioxidant, Oxygen-Rich Ionized Water, it must be consumed fresh and strong, right out of the tap. Slow the water flow down on the Water Ionizer and the glass you fill will have thousands of tiny bubbles in it. Those are hydroxyl ions, which is the antioxidant and the reason for the Negative ORP. The ORP is the most fragile aspect of Ionized Water lasting only a maximum of 18-24 hours. You can also run water through the unit that is slightly tepid and not too cold to get full ionization potential.
Ionized Water is very Alkaline and helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our diet comprised of cooked foods, pasteurized or otherwise processed foods. Soft drinks are the most acid substance a person can put in their body. This acidic condition creates an ideal environment in our body for disease to thrive. For example, accumulated acid waste in the joints encourages inflammation and arthritis. Because it is very Alkaline, Ionized Water dissolves accumulated acid waste and returns the body to a balance. Keeping ourselves Alkaline is the first line of defense in fighting any disease.
Ionized Water is up to six times more hydrating that conventional water. Water is one of the most important element in the body, which is over 80% water. Ionized Water is fundamentally different from conventional water. This is because the size and shape of the water molecule cluster has reduced in size and changed in shape to hexagonal, which allows the water cluster to pass through our tissue more easily. One of the primary causes of disease is chronic cellular dehydration, a condition which leaves the body’s cells in a perpetual state of weakness and defense. One of the major causes of chronic disease is not providing the body with sufficient water. We simply do not drink enough water (at least half our weight in ounces) to keep ourselves properly hydrated and therefore healthy.
Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying. This is also because of the reduced size and shape of the water molecule clusters. Once reduced, these water clusters pass through the body’s tissue much easier and push out toxins and acid waste quite effectively. Water Ionizers have several levels of strength so people who are toxic can begin by drinking mild Ionized Water, slowly drinking it stronger as they acclimate to it.
Minerals that are ionized are more bio-aviailable, meaning that the body can absorb them much more efficiently and make use of them where they are needed throughout the body. Water soluble trace minerals of any knind can be added to your water source through the filter on some Water Ionizers. Minerals are some of the most important nutrients the body needs, yet mineral deficiency is common. Ionized Water is an efficient and effective way for the body to get minerals.
Ionized Water improves the taste of food. Ionized Water hydrates food better, helps bring out its flavor, lowers acid levels of any food including coffee, tea & juice. It ionizes the minerals in the food which helps make them bio-available.
Having Ionized Acid Water on hand is worth the price of a Water Ionizer
Ionized Acid Water is great for the skin. Applying Acid Ionized Water regularly works like an astringent to tighten the skin and remove wrinkles, however, there is NO chemical residue. It soothes and helps keep the skin clear of acne and other blemishes.
At its strongest level, Acid Ionized Water kills most bacteria on contact. It improves hair and skin conditions of any kind, including fungus, cuts, scraps, even serious wounds. It takes the itch out of mosquito bites, the sting out of other insect bites.
Acid Ionized Water has been used successfully in treating diabetic ulcers. This is a condition that develops in diabetics where a fester opens in the skin, usually in the legs or feet, which can result in amputation if not promptly treated. These ulcers can become very serious. However, soaking the ulcer in Ionized Acid Water has tremendous healing effects.
Acid Ionized Water promotes substantially healthier plant growth.
