Ionized alkaline water seeks out free radicals and converts them into oxygen which your body can use for energy production and tissue oxygenation. It is thought that cancer and most other illnesses cannot survive in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.
This type of water is also known by scientists as Electrolyzed Reduced Water (ERW). It has been shown to reduce the harmful effects that oxidation can have on the body. In much the same way that we are encouraged to eat antioxidant foods, alkaline water is thought to have the same benefits.
It has an antioxidant-like effect due to its negative ionic charge and can therefore effectively scavenge for free radicals which seek to destroy our cells. In addition to the free radicals our bodies fight on a daily basis after being subjected to acidic food and drinks, pollution, negativity, extreme workouts, etc. our bodies generate free radicals themselves! Free radicals speed up the aging process so neutralizing them may slow the aging process and appearance of saggy skin, lines and wrinkles.
Ionized Alkaline Water Research
It can pass right through the blood/brain barrier, so it can deliver its antioxidant potential to the brain unlike other types of antioxidants like Vitamin C and E. Animal studies have already shown how effective this kind of water is in treating various different types of illnesses.
Due to the massive cost required to perform clinical, double blind, placebo controlled studies it is unlikely that there will be many studies done in humans. At the very least it shows that it holds promise as a method for protecting the brain from oxidative damage.
Ionized alkaline water is smoother and lighter due to its micro clustered structure, which allows you to drink your daily limit without feeling bloated or waterlogged. Being fully hydrated is one of the best things you can do for your body, as water is necessary for all basic functions, and we naturally lose about two liters a day. Many common ailments like lack of energy, headaches and hunger pangs are signs of dehydration, so drink up for better health. We recommend consuming around 1 litre for every 25kg of body weight of 9.5 – 10.5 pH ionised alkaline water daily.
It naturally enhances the flavours of food, so you won’t need to use as much butter and seasonings. Try soaking your meat or fish in ionized alkaline water before cooking to tenderize and kill bacteria. It makes rice fluffier and soups and stews tastier. It also boils water faster, cutting cooking time by about 25%.
This type of water also aids in the detoxification process as its smaller cluster size can penetrate our cells deeper than conventional water. Even those on a raw food vegan diet living in rural areas experience toxins on a daily basis and can benefit from the detoxifying effects of Chanson ionized alkaline water.
