How Am I Supposed to Choose the Right Water Ionizer for Me?

Being a long-time provider of alkaline water ionizers I have seen my fair share of "water ionizer comparison charts".  It can be very confusing to someone who is just starting to research alkaline water.  I want to give you some pointers on what to pay attention to and what to focus on when you are researching.

Comparison Charts 

A lot of these comparison charts are constructed by individual water ionizer companies.  This is why they vary so widely.  That company is going to state that their water ionizer is the best out of all of them.  Some ionizer companies actually make up fake awards and give it to their own ionizer!

The first thing to look for is to see if you can find the person who published the comparison chart.  If they are not trying to hide anything, you should easily be able to find their name, email, etc at the bottom of the page.  If you can't find this easily, it may be one of these comparison charts made by the company themselves.

Manufacture and Certification

Another thing to look for is where the ionizer is manufactured.  If the ionizer is not made in Japan or Korea then don't buy it!  These two countries are the only ones that recognize water ionizers as medical equipment, so they have the proper manufacture guidelines and certification in place.

Testing and Quality

One really important thing to check out on any comparison chart is if there has been any testing done on the ionizers that they are comparing.  I have found that this is a key ingredient to finding out the truth about an ionizer.  The proof is in the pudding, and in this case by pudding I mean pH and ORP.

I have found through my own testing that the ORP at the drinking level pH will range greatly between ionizers.  The more negative the ORP the better.  Negative ORP indicates the amount of antioxidants in the water. This is something to pay attention to, as it will benefit you!

Does Baking Soda Mixed in Water Really Have the Same Effect as Alkaline Ionized Water?

A lot of you have probably heard of baking soda as an easy and cheap alternative to alkaline ionized water.  I have actually done some testing of this to see if it is really true.  

If baking soda turns water alkaline why would anyone buy a water ionizer if this mixture is just as good?!

I had to find out for myself so I went ahead and tried it out! First of all, it tastes horrible.  Secondly, I found that when I started drinking the mixture, I started getting spider veins on my legs and my pulse became irregular.  I knew then and there that this is NOT a substitute for alkaline ionized water.  But, I like to give hard evidence for these things so I went ahead and did some testing to compare the two.  Take a look at the video below.


So, the baking soda mixture does make the water alkaline, but a water ionizer will do a much better job.  And at the same time the water ionizer adds in plenty of antioxidants as well.  It looks like the baking soda mixture actually oxidizes.

There is also another factor in that the baking soda adds salt to your diet which is never healthy to take in large quantities.  

It seems that the claims that baking soda mixed in water do not hold true in the main.  It does alkalize the water, but it is NOT equal to any water produced by a water ionizer.

How to Use a Water Ionizer

Many people will only use their water ionizer for drinking water.  Well, today I'm going to go over a few other ways you could use your water ionizer.

A water ionizer has three different types of water that it produces: alkaline, purified, and acidic. There are various degrees of alklaline and acidic water and below is a break down of when you would use which:

Alkaline Water

Drinking: At 8.5 pH to 9.5 or 10 pH alkaline ionized water is the perfect drinking water.

Vitamins: Feel free to drink whatever level of ionized water you are drinking with taking your vitamins.

Cleaning: At the highest levels of alkalinity [10.5 - 11.5 pH] the ionized water will emulsify oils.

Filtered Water

Medications: A neutral 7.0 - 8.0 pH filtered water is perfect for taking medications. For 20-30 min. before and after taking medications it is suggested to only drink filtered water.

Infants & Todlers: A neutral pH is perfect for babies. Give babies and todlers "filtered" water, not ionized, until they are about 2 years old. After that, you can slowly introduce them to ionized water [i.e., over the next 2 - 3 years use level 1, then do the same for level 2, etc.]. At about 9 or 10, a child can drink the same level as an adult.

Acidic Water

Skin and Hair: Acidic water at the 3 - 4 pH-level is perfect for neutralizing the skin and hair [which should be about 5.5 pH] See more on this page: http://www.alkalinewaterplus.com/beauty-tips 

Skin Toner and Conditioner: Your acid mantle [outermost layer] of your skin is your body's first line of defense against bacterial, fungal or viral infections. It is important to maintain this acid mantle at about a 5.5 pH.

Hair Rinse: When you rinse with water at a pH of about 3.0 to 4.0, this low pH water combines with the high pH of your newly washed hair and restores it to its ideal pH of about 5.5.

Natural, Healthy Coolant: It's healthier for you to use acid water at about a 5.5 pH in your mister, rather than regular tap water, because the goal of misting is to cool yourself, not change the pH of your skin. The proper pH of skin is about 5.5 pH.

Natural Laundry Softener: Add acid water to your final rinse cycle of any load of laundry. This removes residual alkaline minerals from the clothing, brightens up the colors, and softens the laundry naturally, without the use of chemicals.

Plants: Acid water at the pH levels of 5 - 7 pH is great for watering plants. Plants love the purified micro clustered water, and they also love the water to be slightly acidic. Flowering plants tend to like lower acidity than green shade-plants.

Germicidal Water: To kill germs it is best to use acid water at the pH level of 2.5 - 4. The lower the pH the faster the germs are killed, but even at a 4 pH, if you soak something for about a minute it will kill the germs on it. Laboratory testing has proven that exposure to acidic water at a 2.5 pH and lower kills germs on contact.

Alkaline Water "The Fountain of Youth"

Alkaline water has been compared to the fountain of youth.  In fact, alkaline water can be found in nature in a few spots in the world.  The people that live in these places tend to live much longer than the average in other parts of the world.  So, it does stand to reason that there is something to this alklaine water.

An alkaline water ionizer will give you the same benefits of naturally alkaline water anywhere in the world no matter what your source water is like!

Now, why would alkaline ionized water have anti-aging effects?  Well, this is because alkaline water is rich in antioxidants.  We have all heard of these "antioxidants".  Antioxidants combat the effects of free radicals in the body.  To give you an idea of what this might do, think of an apple that has been cut in half.  Okay, well after a few minutes it will have turned brown right?  That is the affect free radicals have on an apple.  Imagine what it does in the body. 

So, alkaline water will prevent this from occurring.  It keeps the cells and organs funtioning well and prevents the harmful damage from free radicals.

This is the reason why alkaline water has been referred to as the fountain of youth.  It is not a mystical or magical thing, it is actually very scientific.

To demonstrate what alkaline water can do for a person please read these success stories below:

"I've tried the Melody and it is what you say it is...great. Thank you for your good information. I have diabetes and the ionized water is making my blood sugar levels more stable. I hope that this water keeps me healthier longer. I think it will. It feels good to my body to drink it. I'll write more when I get more experience with it...."Susan

A Man in his late 40s presented to my clinic with chronic headaches. Had been seeing his doctor and chiropractor with no changes in his symptoms. On Live Blood examination using a microscope we found he had lots of chemical and uric acid crystals (works on a farm), as well as massive platelet clusters (clotting factors).
After discussing his water source (rain water with chemical drift), he decided it could be beneficial to purchase and use the ionized water from a Jupiter System. He was also prescribed supplements to reduce his platelet size and numbers, feeling this build-up could be causing his headaches (blood vessels to head restrict flow). I normally check the blood after 3 months, but in this case, because I referred him back to a GP, we wanted to look at his blood before the visit, only eight days after the initial examination and only four days after being on the water.
I did not expect to see much change, as normally the supplements take a few months to show radical improvement, but hoped to see a slight shift to show we were on the right track.
Well, we were both amazed, as his blood looked great. All crystals were gone and platelets had reduced to completely normal size and number. He also said that since drinking the alkaline water he had more energy and he'd only had one headache which was before he started the water. (He was having major headaches every second day and dull headaches the other days). He feels the results were to do with drinking the water and I tend to agree as the supplements as great as they are don't usually work that fast. I am glad I'm drinking the water too."...

Alkaline Water and Free Radicals

Alkaline water has helped many people with many different ailments.  I have personally seen it help with skin conditions, gout, energy levels, allergies, spider veins.  The list is endless.  In this post, I want to go over why these things occurr with a person drinking this water, so some of the mystery is resolved.  I have heard people call this miracle water, or the fountain of youth, and after you read this blog, you will understand why.

First and foremost, alkaline water is alkaline. Duh. It says it right in the name! But what does this mean? Well, alkalinity measures how acidic or how basic something is.  Your blood needs to be a certain pH in order for you to function properly.  Most of your organs also need to be alkaline as well. But, a lot of people nowadays lead very acidic lives drinking lots of coffee and soda, eating meat and carbs, and leading stressfull lives.  All of these can cause someone's pH level to drop.  Drinking alkaline water will help keep your body balanced and at the correct pH it needs to be.  The other benefit to drinking alkaline water is that it will allow for your body to more easily get rid of acidic waste, because your body will not have a problem sacraficing some of its alkaline fluids if it has an abundance of it.

Secondly, alkaline water has a TON of antioxidants in it.  The technical name for it is ORP (oxidation reduction potential).  When this number is positive, it oxidizes, when it is negative, it antioxidizes.  Now everyone in this day and age has heard of free radicals, right? Well these are those unstable molecules that go around your body damaging cells and causing mutations amongst other things.  Antioxidants have the ability to knock out these free radicals.  They neutralize them.  Here is a depiction of what free radicals can do:


So, alkaline ionized water can counter these negative effects of free radicals to a great degree!  Water ionizers can vary in the ORP quite a bit.  To get the best results, I would recommend finding an ionizer that has the lowest negative number -the more negative the better- for the pH that you will be drinking at.

Alkaline Ionized water is not only for drinking!

I am a strong advocate of drinking alkaline ionized water for better health.  And I can tell you that after over 20 years of drinking alkaline water, I feel healthier than I did when I was young.  But, today I had another reason to use it.  I ate some chilly for lunch and got a spot on my new ivory sweater.  I thought, what a perfect way to highligt the many uses of ionized water.  I then used the highest setting of alkaline as a stain remover and it worked great to loosen up the stain.  I only added a small drop of soap to get the remainder of the stain out.  See pictures below.

As you can see, the sweater looks practically brand new!  This is a great way to cost effectively get rid of any stain.  I have even, myself, gotten a blueberry stain out of a white shirt before without any harsh chemicals.
