Alkaline Water

Alkaline water is water with a potential hydrogen (pH) value of greater than 7, which is neutral. Water ionizers use a process called electrodialysis, which separates the water into alkaline and acidic streams. The alkaline side contains healthy ionized minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium. Studies have shown that minerals in alkaline water are 30% easier to absorb than food-based minerals.

Properties of Alkaline Water:
Home tap water contains a mixture of minerals, salts, and other substances, some of which are good for you, and some of which are not.
After many of the harmful elements are filtered out, a home water ionizer uses the electrodialysis process to separate the remaining minerals in the water into healthy alkaline minerals, and acidic minerals. During the process, some water molecules are split, releasing hydrogen and hydroxyl ions – charged particles.
The charged water ions – called hydroxyl ions - are short lived, but they combine with the minerals in the water to produce mineral ions, referred to in chemistry as hydroxides. Medical research suggests that alkaline water may get its antioxidant properties from these charged mineral hydroxides.
Benefits of Alkaline Water

Chances are, even with a proper diet you are still not getting enough of essential dietary minerals in your diet to maintain good health. Studies indicate that alkaline water may be the best way to get your minerals and have associated it with these health benefits:
Alkaline water has been used in Asia as a health supplement for years, and Asian countries rank highest in world health surveys. Used properly, alkaline water should be combined with a proper diet, exercise and healthy lifestyle to produce optimum results.
 

The pH scale ranges from 0 on the acidic water side to 14 on the alkaline water side and a solution is neutral if its pH is 7.

At pH 7, water contains equal concentrations of H+ and OH- ions. Substances with a pH less than 7 are acidic because they contain a higher concentration of H+ ions. The pH scale is a logarithmic scale, so a change of one pH unit implies a tenfold shift in the concentration of hydrogen ions.

pH 6 means you are ten times more acid than pH 7
pH 5 means you are a hundred times more acid than pH 7

The Importance of Balancing pH

Living things, including humans, are extremely sensitive topH. Blood plasma and other fluids that surround the cells in the body have a pH of 7.2 to 7.45.

A blood pH of 6.9 can induce coma and death. That is why all bodily systems are secondary in importance to the system of pH balancing. Your body will willingly shut down digestion, alter temperature, rob your bones of calcium, deprive your pancreas etc. just to maintain adequate fluid buffers of alkalinity to balance the `acid tide` we inflict upon ourselves through diet and stress etc.

However your body possesses numerous special mechanisms to aid in stabilizing these fluids so that cells will not be subject to appreciable fluctuations in pH. Substances which serve as mechanisms to stabilize pH are called BUFFERS.

Buffers have the capacity to bond ions and remove them from solution whenever their concentration begins to rise. Conversely, buffers can release ions whenever their concentration begins to fall, thus helping to minimize the fluctuations in pH. This is an important function because many biochemical reactions normally occurring in living organisms either release or use up ions.

Imagine now what a load is taken off your body if it's primary safety system of pH balancing can be `stood down` from a continual `full alert` because you now are alkalizing your body through reducing stress, eating healthier foods, avoiding harmful chemicals and drinking adequate amounts of clean, healthy water!
