What is Alkaline Ionized Water?
The term Alkaline Water is just a label used to describe ideal drinking water as provided by nature in places like Hunza and the Alps. It is one of many labels that arise as we explore the hidden, mysterious properties of water.
In health literature alkaline ionized water is also called:

• Micro water
• Micro-clustered water
• Hexagonal water
• Structured Water
• Reduced Water
• Electrolysis Reduced Water (ERW)
• Ionic Mineral Water
• Light Water
• Living Water
• Anti-Aging Water
• Oxygenated Water
• Energised Water
• Miracle Water
Water is like a diamond, it has all these properties, which can be thought of as the different facets of the water diamond.
Alkaline pH is just one of these facets, the most easily measured facet of the water diamond.
Alkaline water is water with excess Oxygen and Alkaline Minerals. It has more OH- ions then H+ ions; it is highly oxygenated water with the oxygen in the stable bias OH- form that is needed by our cells. Each of these ions is bonded with an alkaline mineral in the all-important colloidal form. At pH between 9-10, ionized alkaline water will have 100’s of times more excess oxygen then neutral tap water and no acid elements or toxic substances in it.

Ionized water is produced by electrolysis by a Water Ionizer. This small device first filters and purifies ordinary tap water and then passes it through an electrolysis chamber with platinum-coated solid titanium plates. All alkaline elements in the water are drawn towards one plate, while all acid elements like chlorine, fluoride** and heavy metals that are not captured by the filter are drawn to the other plate to be discarded. You drink the alkaline water and can use the acid water for skin care.

Japanese scientists discovered a method that puts back into water the missing ingredients that nature provides to the best natural water like Hunza water:
• Alkaline pH
• Hydroxyl ions
• Micro-clusters
• Colloidal Minerals
• Active Hydrogen.
The discovery of ionized water/micro water closely replicates the living qualities of high altitude mountain spring water: Fresh, Invigorating, Life Enhancing, Free Radical Scavenging and Delicious.
Alkaline water is drinking water as it should be, and as it is in nature’s best waters like glacier waters. Nature separates water into acid and alkaline – high altitude spring waters tend to be alkaline (for drinking), whereas hot spring waters are acidic (for skin cleansing).

Ionized alkaline and acid waters are used in hospitals and clinics throughout Japan and South Korea, where the water ionizer is classified as a medical device.

Alkaline pH is just one of the facets of the water diamond, the most easily measured facet of the water diamond.
The fact that the water ionizer separates neutral tap water to acid and alkaline can be easily checked by the litmus test or pH meter by anyone – so it is this facet that is the most commonly talked about.
The other aspects or facets of good water such as the Micro-clusters, colloidal Mineral content, ORP values (show if the water is reduced or oxidized), bio-energy levels, and general life enhancing qualities are less easy to measure and quantify by the average person.
Water researchers, particularly in Korea and Japan have researched all these aspects of ionized water. The Medical Case Studies and References section contains a selection of the published research papers.
The message is slowly spreading to the Western countries. UK Universities, for example, now offer courses on Structured Water.
Ionized water is one of the most effective and easy ways for your body to:
• Hydrate
• Alkalize
• Mineralize
• Detoxify

Alkaline water can slowly reverse the aging process, which is a gradual process of acid waste accumulation. It is every effective because the water penetrates deeply to dissolve and remove toxins from the body.
Acid wastes like lactic acid that are insoluble in neutral water become soluble in alkaline water and so can be removed from the body by drinking alkaline water.

What measurable properties does alkaline water have?
• High pH – excess Oxygen: It has more OH- ions then tap or acid water. Blood pH at 7.45 has been calculated to have excess oxygen of around 65% at pH 10, in the stable bias form as compared with blood at pH 7.3. At pH over nine, alkaline water have 100’s times more excess oxygen then tap water at pH around 7.
• Low ORP – Micro-clusters: Abundance of electrons which make it a powerful liquid Anti-Oxidant, more effective then vitamin C because of its smaller molecular size, and it doesn’t need any synergistic elements.
• Low NMR – Reduced Water: The water molecules clump together in micro-clusters (measured by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, NMR). This makes the water better at penetrating and hydrating. The water also has a low surface tension (measured in dynes).
• High Colloidal Minerals: The ionization converts the minerals in the water into an ionic or colloidal form, considered the best bioactive form. Every OH- ion will be bonded with an ionic mineral like calcium. Each glass of alkaline water has many billions of these life-enhancing molecules. Remember, just dissolving calcium in water and drinking does not mean that your body will assimilate the calcium – your body can only assimilate minerals that are in ionic form.
• High Bio-Energy: this is indicated by devices that measure the electric frequency of substances. Alkaline water is alive, charged, life enhancing as opposed to tap water or stored bottled water, which is dead.
