What is Ionized Water?
The world runs on the water it consumes. Water is both life-giving and life-sustaining. Yet, although the Earth is 72% water on its surface, very little of it is safe to be consumed directly by all living organisms. This makes it necessary for water to be purified, or to undergo some natural processes that remove harmful pathogens or chemicals from it in order for it to become safe to be consumed by people or animals. The answer to this problem was thought to be filtration by Reverse Osmosis. However, it is now proven that Ionized Water is the key to preserving the natural goodness of water, even re-energizing it to provide it with the ideal mix of minerals and molecular hydrogen to make it the perfect vivifying drink.
The primary importance of water in the existence of life has led us to study it and devise technologies to filter and purify water to render it not just harmless, but safe to consume to help promote our good health and wellbeing. However, one of the most ideal ways to decontaminate water, ionization, has long been unknown to us, until now. Thanks to research in Japan in the early 1930s, “kangen” water, or water that “returns to its origin” and contains the invigorating source of life was discovered.
However, ionized water has been fighting an uphill battle against reverse osmosis water filter technologies to gain the public’s attention. This is in spite of the fact that the World Health Organization (WHO) has listed reasons why “demineralised water”, what it calls reverse osmosis water, is not fit for consumption. In a paper on its website titled “Health Risks from Drinking Demineralised Water” (located at this URL: https://www.who.int/water_sanitation_health/dwq/nutrientschap12.pdf), the WHO lists 6 reasons why this kind of water may be harmful to people if consumed, which are: 1) Direct effects of low mineral content water on the intestinal mucous membrane, metabolism and mineral homeostasis or other body functions, 2) Little or no intake of calcium and magnesium from low-mineral water, 3) Low intake of some essential elements and microelements from low-mineral water, 4) High loss of calcium, magnesium and other essential elements in food prepared in low-mineral water, 5) Possible increased dietary intake of toxic metals, and 6) Possible bacterial contamination of low-mineral water. It is no wonder that this once touted water filtration technology is now being recognized for the lack of health benefits that it offers those who consume it.
In India, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on the 28th of May, 2019, (URL: https://www.downtoearth.org.in/news/water/ban-ro-systems-if-dissolved-solids-are-less-than-500-mg-l-ngt-64795) had called for the ban on reverse osmosis filters in areas of Delhi based on a petition, where the total dissolved solids (TDS) is at a level lower than 500 milligrams per litre. The reason for this petition was the apparent waste of water that a reverse osmosis filter generates as it purifies the water, stated as being upwards of 80%, potentially. The NGT issued an order to the Union Ministry of Environment, Forest and Climate Change (MoEF & CC) to set down guidelines in this regard, and even though manufacturers of reverse osmosis filters appealed this move, the Supreme Court of India has upheld this decision.
When it comes to Ionized Water, the dual filtration process of first treating the water for dissolved particulate matter and chemical contaminants, before then being subjected to ionization by way of electrolysis, renders the water healthier than other methods of purification. The reason for this is that the electrolysis generates molecular hydrogen in the water, and this is believed to be crucial in helping the body deal with free radicals that enter the body through the food and drink that most people consume nowadays. Furthermore, the alkaline nature of this water makes it ideal for the body as it reduces the overall acidity levels in the body, as well as providing anti-oxidants to the bloodstream to help combat free radicals, as well as minerals like calcium and magnesium that the body needs, to name a few of the obvious benefits.
