Why Alkaline Ionized Water is Best
Prevent disease at the source
According to Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi, Director of the
Water Institute of Japan, "To eliminate the pollutants
in a large stream that is contaminated at its source, we
must work on the problems upstream at the headwaters --
the source of the pollution -- not downstream where we
can only try to treat the evidence of damage caused by
the pollution. Ionized Water's contribution to
preventive medicine is essentially upstream treatment."
According to our model, we consider the
digestive tract upstream where we intake water and food.
Although many people today in developed countries are
growing more skeptical about what they eat, they tend to
concentrate more on what the food contains rather than
the metabolized products of foods in the digestive
example, consider the typical balanced diet of meat and
vegetables. Meat protein is metabolized into amines
while nitrates from fertilizers used to grow vegetables
metabolize into nitrites in the digestive tract. These
amines and nitrites combine to form nitrosamine, a
We've already discussed that odoriferous feces are
evidence of excessive fermentation in the digestive
tract, so reduced water performs a very important
function upstream in the digestive tract by reducing
this excessive fermentation as evidenced by cleaner
stools within days of starting a steady regimen of
Downstream from the digestive tract, starting at the
liver, reduced water quickly enters the liver and other
organs due to, first, its lower molecular weight, and,
secondly, the size of its clusters. At tissue sites
throughout the body, reduced water with its safe, yet
potent reduction potential readily donates its passenger
electrons freely to active oxygen and neutralizes them
so they cannot damage the molecules of healthy cells.
Normal cells are protected from the electron thievery of
active oxygen and allowed to grow, mature, function and
regenerate without interference from rogue, oddball
oxygen radicals which tend to steal the electrons from
the molecules of normal, healthy biological molecules.
The water boom
We are now in the midst of a water boom. In Japan and
other countries consumers are buying various kinds of
bottled and canned water even though water is one of our
most abundant vital resources. Research data reveals
that mineral waters have an ORP of +200 mV, slightly
lower than the +400 mV measured for ordinary tap water.
We can say that at least mineral water is marginally
better than tap water from the viewpoint of ORP.
Compared to any processed water for sale, however,
Ionized Water with its reduction potential of -250 to
-300 mV is beyond comparison due to its ability to
scavenge active oxygen radicals.
