How to Best Use Alkaline Ionized Drinking Water

The ideal pH level of alkaline ionized water for long term human consumption is between 8.5 and 9.5 (and no greater than 10.0) with the ideal ORP value around -250mV to -350mV (and in no way significantly greater than -400mV). PH values significantly higher than 10 are unfit for human consumption as indicated by the World Health Organization and the Environmental Protection Agency. In fact water with high PH values such as 11 is found in ammonia solution and a PH value of 13 is the PH value found in household bleach!

When you produce alkaline ionized water the antioxidant hydroxyl ions (ORP) are fleeting in nature and will only last a maximum of 18 to 24 hours. For this reason it is best to drink the water immediately upon leaving the machine or within 6 hours time. Bottling or storing the water will not prolong the life of the hydroxyl ions and in fact you should only store what water you will be drinking during that same day. The best container to store your alkaline ionized water in is a dark glass container that is sealed and kept in a cold dark location such as your refrigerator. Exposure to oxygen in the air and light will speed up the process of decay leading to a faster loss of its antioxidant proprieties.

Due to the fleeting nature of the antioxidant hydroxyl ions bottling or storing alkaline ionized water is in no way capable of preserving the therapeutic antioxidant effects of the water. For this reason purchasing bottled alkaline water is not as beneficial as drinking the alkaline ionized water when it is fresh from the machine or in 6 hours time of its creation. Notice that when you purchase bottled water it is called "alkaline water" and not "alkaline ionized water" because of the fact that all of the hydroxyl ions have decayed. The water cannot legally be sold and called "alkaline ionized water" because all of the antioxidant hydroxyl ions have evaporated, it must now be sold strictly as "alkaline water".

When you purchase "alkaline water" you may still get water with a higher pH (the higher PH value will remain for several months while the ORP value will dissipate completely within 24 hours) but it won't have the same antioxidant properties as water that is fresh from the machine since the majority if not all of the ORP has evaporated from the water.

To receive the most therapeutic effects from your water ionizer be sure to drink your alkaline ionized water when it is fresh from the machine or within at most 6 hours time. If you have to take the water with you to work or on the road bottle it in a dark glass container and try to keep it sealed while placing it in a dark cold location.
