new water with its water clusters reformed
into clusters of only 4 to 6 molecules per cluster is known as
restructured water. Since the number of water molecules per cluster have been reduced by electrolysis, the water clusters in ionized water are molecularly smaller than the cluster sizes in ordinary filtered water, bottled water, distilled water, and reverse osmosis water. The water electrolysis process has created reduced water with smaller cluster sizes and additional free oxygen in the water by breaking the hydrogen bonds between water molecules. These smaller water clusters are absorbed by the bodies cells more readily, allowing for faster re-hydration. Ionized minerals are also absorbed two to three times more efficiently than minerals found in other water sources. Another beneficial quality of the electrolysis process occurring in water ionizers is the ORP or (Oxidation Reduction Potential) of the water. By breaking the hydrogen bonds the water ionizer creates a negatively charged ORP in the alkaline electrolyzed water causing these negatively charged hydroxyl ions to bond with positively charged free radicals found inside your body.
The neutralization of harmful free radicals in your body is an antioxidant detoxification effect of drinking ionized alkalinized water. The process of water electrolysis imparts these beneficial properties into the drinking water. One of these beneficial properties is called Negative Oxidation Reduction Potential or -ORP for short. No other form of alkaline water filtration system breaks the hydrogen bonds between water molecules to create reduced water as in the water electrolysis process. You can even read the medical research studies on the benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water. In these research studies the scientist explicitly attribute the effects to the electrolysis process which created the ionized electrolyzed reduced water used in their study. Make sure you take note of the fact that in the medical research studies only electrolyzed reduced water also called alkaline ionized water has been shown to posses these effects due to the water electrolysis process. It is not the higher ph of the water that is beneficial, it is the antioxidant created by ionization. Purchasing bottled alkaline water or adding natural alkaline minerals to water to raise it's ph is not the same thing. Thus it is not "Alkaline Water" which is beneficial, only "Alkaline Ionized Water" or "Electrolyzed Reduced Water" is indicated in medical research to possess potentially beneficial properties. Making ionized alkaline water by electrolysis is therefore the only researched way of obtaining these benefits in your drinking water.
How to Make Alkaline Water Benefits without Electrolysis?
Other methods used to make alkaline water such as adding baking soda, using natural alkaline mineral adding filters, or using ph booster drops, do not deliver any beneficial qualities and are simply gimmicks or scams perpetrated on a naive customer base. Making higher ph alkalized water by adding baking soda to water can give you kidney stones or even fatal diseases if done in high amounts for prolonged periods of time. There is actually a warning label on every box of baking soda that advises against over consumption. This however is overlooked by people wondering how to make alkaline water with baking soda, ph booster drops, and other cheap "do it yourself at home" methods. These natural alkaline water filters are basically mineral adding filters to raise the ph of water by adding alkaline minerals. People that buy these mineral adding filters or add chemical booster drops to their water to raise it's ph think they have found a cheap or "natural" way to make alkaline water at home. Ignorance may be bliss, but in reality they have fallen for a gimmick due to their lack of understanding between the difference of adding chemicals or minerals to water to raise it's ph, and the difference of using water electrolysis to make alkaline ionized drinking water.
