Dr. McCauley, I have a question! Let’s say I buy your ionizing machine, and fill up my plastic 5-gallon water jugs with it and put it on my water cooler. Does the “effectiveness” of the water diminish the longer my family takes to drink the entire jug? I’ve read on a few websites that it’s useless to drink company-bottled alkaline ionized water because the combination of sitting on the shelf+the plastic used slowly lowers the pH over time.
Good question. The fresher Alkaline Ionized Water – AIW – is the healthier it is. The antioxidant qualities will be gone within 18 – 24 hours, the high pH will last several months, and the smaller water molecule clusters will last a year or longer. I try to drink as much as I can straight out of the tap. The fresher, the better, but even if you fill jugs with it and it takes a few days to drink it is still vastly superior to any other drinking water. PERIOD!
