The ionized, alkaline water has an abundance of negatively charged ions. Once absorbed by the body, these negatively charged molecules are attracted to positively charged free radicals, which are linked to aging and disease. When the two meet, they exchange electrons and bond. This process neutralizes the free radicals and prevents them from causing cellular damage.
Alkaline water restores the pH balance in the body. Alkaline water can neutralize the acidity of the body caused by stress, modern diet, air pollution, and many bottled waters.
The modern diet of meats, grains, and beverages such as coffee, tea, soft drinks, and alcohol is extremely acidic. Fat cells bind to acids.
While exercise is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, exercise does increase the production of acids in the body, such as lactic acid. Many acids are released through perspiration, but some are retained by the system, causing pain in the muscles. Drinking alkaline water helps in faster recovery by promoting hydration and promoting an alkaline environment for your muscle cells.
Freed of toxins, the body’s cells, tissue, and organs achieve a healthier state. A detoxified, non-acidic body has more energy and vitality.
Recently I have seen bottles of Alkaline drinking water in health food stores.
Important to know is that water that has been made alkaline stays alkaline for up to one month only. Chances are this water was bottled much longer than one month ago and has lost its alkalinity. Alkaline water found in stores IS NOT IONIZED, and therefore is not capable of binding with free radicals and detoxing the body. After electrolysis, the negative ions produced in the water only last for 24 hours. For this reason, it is most ideal to have fresh ionized water on a daily basis for detoxifying. However, the water will remain alkaline for a longer period, as mentioned, and drinking it will continue to help lower the pH of your body.
The Life Ionizer that I use is listed in the Physician’s Desk Reference for Nonprescription drugs, Dietary supplements and Herbs, which is referenced by medical doctors throughout the world. If you are interested in reducing your free radicals (detoxing) short-term or making ionized alkaline water a lifestyle, please contact me (and B.Y.O.B.).
