FAQThe following are some of the most asked questions regarding this water. Just click on the questions to read the answers!
Water is just not water in the sense that we understand it to be. The H2o molecule can change its primary structure by either gaining or losing an electron. Water is considered alkaline or pH negative when there is an abundance of OH- molecules. Water is considered acidic when there is an abundance of H+ molecules. Additionally, water stripped of minerals is considered "dead water" because of the tendency of this water to rob your body of minerals.
Alkaline Ionized Water is a special type of water that has an abundance of OH- molecules. This negative pH (potential of hydrogen) effect changes the structure of the water in such a way that this water becomes a scavenger water seeking out damaging positive free radicals within our body. Thus, Ionized Alkaline Water is often referred to as healing water. As a whole, this water is alkaline, detoxifying, hydrating, oxygenating, anti-oxidant, anti-oxidizing, anti-inflammatory and micro-clustering.
To date, there are 4 places on the earth were this water is made naturally by nature. A few of these places are in Lourdes, France and Talcote, Mexico. You perhaps have heard of the healing waters of Lourdes, France?. It is well established that this water has helped people with many different ailments over the course of centuries. In Talcote, Mexico, it is well documented that people line up for hours to get one or two gallons of this water.
Thanks to the advancement of technology, this special water is now produced from the convenience of your home through a water ionizer. The process is quite simple. First, water from your home faucet flows through your machine through water pressure. Your tap water is first filtered, then it is essentially zapped with electricity through the process of electrolysis. Throughout this process, the ionizers' platinum/ titanium plates help filter the water into two streams. One being acidic and the other negatively charged ionized water.
Although there are many water ionizers available on the market, not all are created equal. Purchasing a water ionizer that is quality built is a must in producing quality alkaline water especially when it is to stand the test over the course of time. The source water is also another factor. Some water has an abundance of natural minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, while other areas of the country have very little minerals. This also plays a role in producing quality alkaline water.
Throughout this site, we commonly use different names to express the different names associated with Ionized Alkaline Water such as Alkalized water, Alkaline Anti-oxidant water and even Hexagonal Water. The name Hexagonal Alkaline Water is given to Ionized Alkaline Water because of the unique 6-sided structure that this water forms when it is electrolyzed by a water ionizer or naturally by nature. This hexagonal form is a common occurrence when this water undergoes micro-clustering when only 4 to 6 clusters of H2O water molecules are bonded together.
Most who start drinking hexagonal alkaline water will experience some form of detoxification. This detoxification happens because stubborn toxins are released from your cells and tissues and are released into your blood stream where it is eliminated by the kidneys and colon. This experience is close to the same as a deep tissue massage whereby toxins are released from the massage.
Because of the unique properties of this water, it is not recommended to take medication with ionized water. Ionized water will supercharge the medication and it will behave much differently than intended. It is best to speak to your doctor if you have medical questions.
There are no known risks associated with drinking this water unless you are taking it with medication. Aside from taking it with medication, the water is perfectly safe. It is not recommended to give it to your baby, as babies are naturally alkaline at birth. The recommended age is 2 years old for your toddler.
As we humans benefit from drinking this water, likewise, our animals will benefit at an even greater extent. Most animals inclusive of dogs and cats, have a fast metabolism and can assimilate ionized alkaline water at a faster rate. Animals love this water! There have been many studies made on the benefits of giving alkaline water over the conventional oxidizing water. For more information, visit, Eco friendly Uses for Pets.
Most water ionizers should be able to produce certain pH levels of ionized alkaline water. In general, ionized rich water of ph 8 to 9.5 can be achieved by most ionizers. a pH 5.5 low acid water can be made as well as strong alkaline water of pH 11 to 11.5 and strong acid water of the range from 3.0 pH to 2.5 should be produced. The higher and lower of these extremes signifies water ionizers that have more cleaning and disinfecting punch. As an example, 2.5 pH is 50 times as acidic as 3.0 pH.
Water bottles posses a number of issues for the environment. Producing the plastic bottles consume a lot of energy in the form of oil and fuel costs and most of the non-degradable plastic bottles fill our landfills or end up floating for years in the oceans damaging and killing marine mammals despite our efforts to recycle. Purchasing one water ionizer for life is the most environmental friendly purchase one can make when it comes to drinking water. Please see Our Eco Responsibility for more information.
There are literally a plethora of water ionizers on the market today and this trend has been increasing more rapidly as awareness increases. It is not the objective of this webpage to point out which water ionizer you should purchase but rather to point out the pros and cons of what to look for in a water ionizer.
When looking for a water ionizer, one of your top concerns should be to look for an ionizer that will produce quality alkaline water for a long period of time because the end game is to increase the health of you and your family. So, looking for the cheapest water ionizer on the market may not be the wisest decision. The following is a checklist that should guide you.... (More)
A very good water ionizer should last 10 or more years. In contrast, a cheaper unit should only last one or two years. This is based upon a number of factors such as ionizer plates, power supply, quality of materials and other factors.
Since 2008, there has been a rise in companies selling high pH, high alkaline or alkaline ionized water in plastic bottles. There are a few problems with trying to bottle ionized water. The problem is that the negative ORP will always resort back to a positive ORP (oxidizing) within 4 days. The same applies for the alkalinity of the water, however, it takes a bit longer to turn back to neutral. These companies will never tell you this as they are counting on most people being ignorant to these facts.
If you have never tried Alkaline Iodized Water and would like to try it before you are considering on purchasing a machine, then the best way to get it is locally or within your area. Depending on where you live, this may posse a problem. You can get more information on this by clicking through the Contact page!
Aside from great tasting Ionized Water, water ionizers also produce strong alkaline and strong acid water for many uses. Strong alkaline water is used primarily for cleaning while strong acid water is used primarily for disinfecting.
Strong alkaline water can take the place of everyday household cleaning supplies such as windex and comet as an example. One of the best uses of strong alkaline water is the use of cleaning your fruits and vegetables. If you happen to purchase an ionizer that allows salt or a saline solution to be used, then your ionizer will produce sodium hydroxide (strong alkaline) and hypochlorous acid (strong acid) waters. It's the sodium solution that gives these cleaners the strong cleaning ability and pesticide stripping ability of fruits and vegetables.
Hypochlorous acid (strong acid water) is a powerful disenfecting water that is ideal for killing a vast majority of viruses and bacteria. It has been documented that this water will totally destroy the AIDS virus topically within a matter of 30 seconds. This water is also ideal for many forms of skin disease or ailmenets and has been well documented in Japan in killing gangrene when a limp is soaked in this water continuously for a short period of time.

There are many researchers and Authors that have written many articles and books on the subject of the Benefits of Alkaline water. Here are just a few.
Dr. Shinya "It is widely recognized in the medical profession that a healthy and clean colon is one of the most important precursors to good health and that the great majority of body ailments and diseases originate in an acidic and dirty colon. Water is essential for your health. Drinking “good water;" especially hard water which has much calcium and magnesium keeps your body at an optimal alkaline PH."
Dr. Theodore Baroody, Author, Alkalize or Die "I have administered over 5000 gallons of this water for about every health situation imaginable. I feel that restructured alkaline water can benefit everyone."
Dr. Robert O. Young, PhD, Author of The pH Miracle. "The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. In summary, over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and disease!" (More)
Doctor Shinya is best known as the inventor of the colonoscopy for the endoscopic treatment of polyps and without requiring use of surgery. His revolutionary “Shinya Method” has become widely used in colonoscopies, the standard screening for the leading, non-tobacco related cancer killer in the US, colon cancer. Dr. Shinya is world renowned in performing intestinal-related procedures, and is known to have examined more than 300,000 stomachs and large intestines, and has performed nearly 100,000 polypectomies.
In his own words, "I have examined more than 300,000 people’s stomachs and intestines for 35 years and realize that our health depends largely on our dietary life. And from my experiences I would like to teach you healthy, dietary habits to help you enjoy your life!" (More)
Dr. Otto Warburg was director of the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute (now Max Planck Institute) for cell physiology at Berlin. He investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, particularly cancer cells.
In his work The Metabolism of Tumors, he demonstrated that all forms of cancer are characterized by two basic conditions: acidosis and hypoxia (lack of oxygen).
Whereas, acidosis and a lack of oxygen are two sides of the same coin: where you have one, you have the other. (More)
Dr. Ray Kurzweil has had an extensive carer as a doctor and scientist. In 2002, he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame and received the $500,000 Lemelson -MIT Prize for invention and innovation. As a futurist, he maintains a healthy lifestyle by choosing the right kinds of food and drink for a long optimal, healthy life. He chooses to drink Ionized Alkaline Water as he feels it is the best type of water to drink.

Based upon the work of Doctor Otto Warburg and other doctors, acidosis and hypoxia are the two environmental conditions within the body that brings about disease such as cancer. See more on Dr. Warburg Here! Ionized Alkaline water, on the hand, have the properties to fight off acidosis and hypoxia. Ionized alkaline water at a molecular level consist of OH- (Oxygen & Hydrogen with a negative charge). Their is an abundance of Oxygen! While Ionized Alkaline water is rich in oxygen, it has the properties of a higher pH such as 9.5 to help stem off acidosis. And as an extra bonus, the negative charge of the water helps to reduce pollution and toxins within the body by flushing it out of your system. What can be more healthy than negative charged ionized alkaline water?
No! What Hexagonal Alkaline Water does is to create a healthy environment within ones body so that the variety of blood cells, which is a complete self-sustained factory within themselves, can perform and maintain their function of self replication, ATP production and the removal of waste. Multiply this by the trillions of cells within the body and you can see that the blood's medium of water should be of the highest quality of alkalinity.
It is said that, "if the fish are sick, then change the water".
Alkaline water is not approved by the FDA for medical use. The FDA; however, has approved Sodium Hydroxide & Hypochlorous Acid as GRAS (Generally Regarded as Safe).
