Why Drink Ionized Water?
There are a lot of reasons to maintain an alkaline diet; it improves your overall health to
increasing your energy levels and boosting your metabolism and the resultant weight
loss that the increases in energy and metabolism will promote. Below are five important
reasons for drinking ionized water:
1). Ionized Water is More Hydrating
Ionized water is totally different from the standard tap water or bottled water. We
become adapted, over many years, to absorb chemical-free, dynamically ionized water.
It is in the Industrial Revolution that our air, water and food have become polluted and
only in the last 70 years that chemicals have been added to our water.
A fact is that when water has been ionized the water molecule cluster’s size is made
smaller and changes its shape. The smaller size and shape of the molecules allow
water to be absorbed by our tissues faster. Furthermore, when the alkalizing minerals
are ionized, it is absobed by our body easier, meaning that they will be more effective. It
is believed that long ago, all water had this size and shape, but while there are still a
handful of locations around the world where naturally ionized water still exist, in
modernize countries it is next to impossible to any longer find a source of unadulterated
2.) It is a Powerful Antioxidant
Over Seventy Percent of our body weight is made up of water and plays a part in many
important bodily processes and functions. In fact, without the proper amount of
hydration the body begins to deteriorate and if the body goes longer than a week
without water, it can die. While water is important for life, it also serves as an
antioxidant to help with oxygen production, a process which neutralizes harmful free
radicals and helps to not only boost your energy levels but also to increase your
metabolism, resulting in effective weight loss.
It used to be that extra ionization was not necessary, but due to our increasing pollution
of the planet, combined with our stress-filled lifestyles we are slowly poisoning
ourselves. The improved oxygen levels imparted by ionized water helps to eliminate
wastes more efficiently carry nutrients to where they are needed more effectively,
increases our resistance to bacteria and viruses but helps through the alkalization of
the bloodstream, to wipe out cancer cells and ensure an environment in which they
3.) It Improves the Taste of Food
Because of its increased oxidation ability, ionized water hydrates food more effectively,
drawing out its natural flavors and goodness and making eating foods that have been
grown with or prepared with ionized water better able to pass along their nutrients.
4.) Acid Ionized Water - As a Beauty Tool
Our bodies are held together with the largest organ of all, the skin. The skin is an acidic
organ and those who wash in acidic water obtain clearer, younger looking skin than
those who use hard water; hard water usually being alkaline due to the presence of
excess calcium. By washing in soft acidic (ionized) water you can clarify excess bacteria
that will help to eliminate acne and work like an astringent to tighten up the skin and
even get rid of wrinkles. Another application of acidic ionized water is to wash your hair
in it to relieve any itchy scalp conditions.
Acidic Ionized water can even be used as a medicinal means to aid sterilize wounds,
treat ulcers, get rid of bacteria and viruses as well as lessen itching caused by insect
bites, skin conditions and inflammation. While you don’t want to drink the acidic water
because of its acid content, we can use it as a skin tonic which will be beneficial in
5.) Alkaline is Ionized Water
Lastly, but probably most important is that ionized water is alkaline, meaning that it will
help to balance your body’s pH level which, due to our highly acidic Westernized diets
and lifestyles (not to mention the acids added to our air, food and water due to pollution)
are usually far too acidic to process our wastes and provide our bodies with the proper
amount of oxygen.
A very acidic body is a friendly host for any number of diseases, and when a body starts
becoming too acidic, the body’s defense mechanisms try to counter the acidity by
leaching calcium and magnesium from the bones. It also reacts by turning acid wastes
which are very dangerous to the body and can cause the organs to slow down and
malfunction into solids, which it then stores in our tissues. The usual result of the body’s
efforts to protect its organs also results in a hardening of the arteries and a build-up of
extra weight as well as crystalline deposits of acids in the joints which cause
inflammation and stiffness, even arthritis.
