Alkalize Your Health with Quality Water

What is alkaline water?
Alkaline water, also known as ionized water, is water with a pH of 7.0 or greater. To get alkaline water you need a running water faucet and a water ionizing machine, which will turn your basic tap water which usually has a pH of 7.0, into electrically charged drinking water with a pH of your choice (8.0pH – 10.0pH). Technology has delivered a clean answer to us in the form of water ionizers. It is by “splitting” of the H2O molecule in a sealed ionization chamber, under exact control of a dedicated microcomputer, to ensure the exact result time after time. As filtered tap water passes across specially designed titanium electrodes, it separates into the two components to form alkaline and acid water.
Benefits of “Drinking Alkaline Water”
Studies have shown that drinking alkaline water on a regular basis will improve your overall health and wellness. It has been proven to balance your cholesterol levels and your blood sugar levels, slow down the aging process, help fight tooth decay and prevent bone loss. Today most people eat a highly acidic diet, take medications, live in a toxic environment, think negative thoughts, and use conventional drugs… which subsequently cause their bodies to become imbalance and their blood pH levels drop, becoming acidic. Alkaline ionized water is rich in alkaline minerals, though of course it depends on what's in your tap water to start with. Vital minerals such as calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, iron, nickel, zinc and manganese help make your body more alkaline and remove toxic acid wastes from your body. Magnesium and calcium enhance the structure of your bones, muscle tissue and teeth; zinc boost immunity and sodium enhances thyroid function. Additionally, it is said that regular alkaline water consumption can help prevent diseases associated with the bone and cellular degeneration, such as arthritis, osteoporosis and assorted types of kidney disorders. Alkaline water also normalizes blood flow as a result of normalizing blood pH levels. Because of the effective way it penetrates the cell membranes many people say ionized water is better at hydrating your body than regular water. On an aesthetic level, ionized water can prove useful in preventing dry hair and skin. In addition to all of the above, water itself being a vital nutrient that we all are deficient of is an element that we cannot survive without.
Buying a Water Ionizer
If you're interested in purchasing a water ionizer, there are several factors to take into consideration before making your final selection.
First, you'll need to decide whether you'd like a removable ionizer that can easily be attached to or detached from your faucet head (Counter-top) or if you'd like a heavy duty ionizer that will be permanently installed beneath your counter. While the heavy-duty ionizers are generally more effective in purging acid toxins, they tend to come with much steeper price tags. Although they may not be as effective as their permanently-installed counterparts, the detachable faucet head units can conveniently be moved from one of your home's faucets to another, thus eliminating the need to purchase multiple ionizers.
When buying a filter make sure it has 3, 5, or 7 platinum titanium coated electrodes (plates). It should also have a built-in one micron activated carbon filter which removes chlorine, and other harmful elements from tap water. The filter you are interested in should also have a color pH meter and an ORP meter to measure the milivolt charge of alkaline or acid water, a calcium port for adding minerals and for maximum cleaning after years of usage, an automatic cleaning alert, hot water shut-off and filter replacement indicator.
The company where I get all my ionic water products is “Water Works 4 U” they have water filters, shower filters, ionic portable sticks and more…
