Ionized water is the product of mild electrolysis which takes place in the ionized water unit. The production of ionized water, its properties and how it works in the human body are described in the next section. Ionized water is treated tap water that has been filtered and reformed to create reduced water with a large mass of electrons that can be donated to active oxygen in the body to block the oxidation of normal cells.
Normal tap water, for example, with a pH of 7 is approximately neutral on the pH scale of 0 to 14. When measured with an ORP (oxidation potential) meter its redox potential is approximately +400 to +500 mV. Because it has a positive redox potential, it is apt to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules. Reduced Ionized Water, on the other hand, has a negative redox potential of approximately -250 to -350 mV.
This means it has a large mass of electrons ready to donate to electron-thieving active oxygen.
Before discussing the properties of Ionized Water further, let's take a look at what happens inside an Ionized Water producing unit.
The Ionized Water unit, slightly taller and thicker than a large dictionary on end, is an electrical appliance connected to your kitchen water supply to perform electrolysis on tap water before you drink it or use it in the kitchen for cooking or cleaning.
A special attachment re-directs tap water out of the faucet through a plastic hose into the Ionized Water unit. Inside the Ionized Water unit, the water is first filtered through activated charcoal.
Next, the filtered water passes into an electrolysis chamber equipped with a platinum-coated titanium electrode where electrolysis takes place.
Cations, positive ions, gather at the negative electrodes to create cathodic water (reduced water). Anions, negatively charged ions, gather at the positive electrode to make anodic water (oxidized water).
Through electrolysis, reduced water not only gains an excess amount of electrons(e-), but the cluster of H 20 seems to be reduced in size from about 10 to 13 molecules per cluster to 5 to 6 molecules per cluster.
The reduced water comes out of the faucet, and the oxidized water comes out of a separate hose leading into the sink. You can use the reduced water for drinking or cooking. The oxidation potential of the oxidized water makes it a good sterilizing agent, ideal for washing hands, cleaning food or kitchen utensils, and treating minor wounds.
Provide direct current to both poles of the electrolytic cell in which the diaphragm is installed. The movement of electrons gives the water at (+) pole more hydrogen ions, and the (-) pole more oxalic acid ions. These hydrogen and oxalic acid ions activate, and the water with more hydrogen ions and dissolved oxygen becomes acidic, and the water with more oxalic acid ions becomes alkaline. Alkaline ionized water contains much inorganic mineral and becomes drinking water. Acidic ionized water has sterilizing properties and can be used for healing skin problems. Acidic ionized water is also compatible with the external pH of the human body which is about 5.5 pH and it is used as face and body wash for beautiful skin, and hair protection.
On the pH scale, which ranges from 0 on the acidic end to 14 on the alkaline end, a solution is neutral if its pH is 7. At pH 7, water contains equal concentrations of H+ and OH- ions. Substances with a pH less than 7 are acidic because they contain a higher concentration of H+ ions. Substances with a pH higher than 7 are alkaline because they contain a higher concentration of OH- than H+. The pH scale is a log scale so a change of one pH unit means a tenfold change in the concentration of hydrogen ions.
Living things are extremely sensitive to pH and function best (with certain exceptions, such as certain portions of the digestive tract) when solutions are nearly neutral. Most interior living matter (excluding the cell nucleus) has a pH of about 6.8.
Blood plasma and other fluids that surround the cells in the body have a pH of 7.2 to 7.3. Numerous special mechanisms aid in stabilizing these fluids so that cells will not be subject to appreciable fluctuation in pH . Substances which serve as mechanisms to stabilize pH are called buffers. Buffers have the capacity to bond ions and remove them from solution whenever their concentration begins to rise. Conversely, buffers can release ions whenever their concentration begins to fall. Buffers thus help to minimize the fluctuations in pH . This is an important function because many biochemical reactions normally occurring in living organisms either release or use up ions.
While natural antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene are important to a healthy and balanced diet, there is an even better source of free electrons. Alkaline, Ionized water.
Water treated by electrolysis to increase its reduction potential is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free electrons to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals. Reduced water ??alkaline, ionized water ??with an excess of free electrons to donate to active oxygen, is the most effective solution because its lower molecular weight allows the electrons to reach all tissues of the body in a very short time
