Why drinking alkaline ionized water by Dr. Hayashi

water ionizer

Every time we try to understand if there is life on the planet Mars or other planets, scientists first thing in trying to determine whether there is a possibility of the presence of water. Why? Because life on earth totally depends on water.

A high percentage of living organisms, both animal and vegetable are born in the water. All life on earth is thought to be derived from the water. The body of all living organisms are composed for the most part water. About 70 up to 90% of all organic matter is water.

The chemical reactions in all plants and animals that support life take place by means of the water. The water not only provides the medium to make life possible through reactions that supports, but the water itself and often an important reactant or product of these reactions. In other words, the chemistry of life is water chemistry.

Water is the universal solvent. Icona acqua alcalinaWater is a solvent superb, universal due to its marked polarity of the molecules of the water and its tendency to form hydrogen bonds with other molecules. A water molecule, expressed with the symbol H2O, consists of two hydrogen atoms and an oxygen atom. Seen alone, the hydrogen atom consists of a positive proton of its nucleus with a negative electron orbiting now in a three-dimensional circuit. Oxygen on the other hand, contains eight protons in its nucleus with eight electrons orbiting now. In the annotations of chemical oxygen is represented with the letter O surrounded by eight electrons that represent the four pairs.

The single electron hydrogen and oxygen eight electrons represent the key to the chemistry of life because this is where the hydrogen atoms and oxygen combine to form water molecules, or they can divide to form ions. Hydrogen tends to ionize losing its single electron and form single H + ion, which in reality is simply a proton isolated as the hydrogen nucleus contains no neutrons. A hydrogen bond occurs when the electron of a single hydrogen atom is shared with another negative electric charge of an atom such as oxygen that lacks an electron. Polarity of the water molecules . In the water molecule , two hydrogen atoms are covalently bonded with an oxygen atom .   But since the oxygen atom and the largest of the hydrogen atom , its attraction for the electrons of the hydrogen atom is accordingly larger, then the electrons are drawn closer to the casing of the oxygen atom as larger and therefore more distant from the package of the hydrogen atom is smaller .

This means that even if the water molecule is stable as a whole , the great mass of the oxygen nucleus tends to draw in all the electrons in the molecule including the electron shared with hydrogen giving the portion of the molecule in the oxygen side a charge weakly electro- negative . The shell of the hydrogen atom , for the fact that its electrons are closer to oxygen , acquires a small positive electric charge . This means that the water molecules have a tendency to form weak bonds with other water molecules because the oxygen carries a negative charge on one side and the hydrogen bears a positive . A hydrogen atom , while remaining covalently linked to ‘ oxygen of its own molecule , can form a weak bond with the oxygen of other molecules . In a similar way , the tract of oxygen with negative charge can form weak bonds with the terminal hydrogen of other molecules . For the fact that the water molecules have this polarity , water constitutes chemical entity continues .

To illustrate the ability to split water into other substances, consider a simple example of putting a small amount of table salt in a glass of tap water. In the absence of water, and then with the dry salt, NaCl, the attraction between the sodium Electro positive and the chlorine is very strong electro-negative as long as this molecule is not in contact with the water. At the time that the salt is put into water, the attraction of the oxygen electro negative with the molecules of the sodium electro positive, and similarly the attraction of hydrogen with those of the positive electro electro negative chlorine are larger than the mutual attraction between the most represented sodium ions and of those. In the presence of water the ionic bonds of the molecule of sodium chloride are easily broken by the action of the numerous competitive water molecules. As we can see from this simple example, even the delicate configuration of individual water molecules, allow him to be able to break the bonds relatively strong through their conversion. That’s why we call water the universal solvent. It is a natural solution that can break the bonds of larger and more complex molecules. This is the chemistry of life on earth both in water and on land.   Redox reaction in essence, the word reduction means the addition of an electron , its place , oxidation , means removal of an electron . The addition of an electron , reduction, allows to accumulate energy in the substance reduced. The removal of an electron , oxidation, means removing an electron , and then removing , in other words the release of energy . As a rule , each time that a substance is reduced another is oxidized . To clarify this, consider any pair of molecules , for example A and B when the molecules A and B come into contact , this is what happens : B acquires an electron from the molecule , then the molecule is oxidized because it loses an electron. The net charge of b was reduced for those who have acquired a negative electron ( e- ) . In biological systems , removal or addition of an electron constitutes the most frequent mechanism oxide reductive reaction . These redox reactions are often simply called redox reactions . Acids and bases an acid is a substance able to increase the concentration of hydrogen ions (H + ) in water . A base is a substance able to decrease the concentration of hydrogen ions , in other words , increasing the concentration of ions idrossidrile (OH – ) .

The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution is measured in terms of a known value called pH , I stands for the concentration of hydrogen protons . The pH is measured on a logarithmic scale and is the negative logarithm of the concentration of hydrogen ions : pH = 1/log [H + ] = -log [H +] What is pH ? On the pH scale , which ranges from 0 to 14 in the acid part in quell’alcalina , a solution is defined neutral when it falls in the middle that is, at pH 7 . At pH 7, the water contains a concentration equal to hydrogen ions (H + ) and hydroxyl ions (OH – ) . Substances with a pH less than 7 are acidic because they contain a higher concentration of ions ( H + ) . While substances with a pH higher than 7 are said alkaline because they contain a high concentration of hydroxyl ions (OH – ) higher than that of the hydrogen ions (H + ) . The pH scale and a logarithmic scale , therefore, the change of a pH unit means 10 times the change in the concentration of hydrogen ions . The importance of balancing the pH living organisms are extremely sensitive to pH and function best (except for certain exceptions, such as a portion of the digestive system ) when you are in a state of neutrality. Most of the living matter ( excluding the cell nucleus ) to a pH of about 6 . 8 . The plasma of the blood and other fluids that surround the cells of the body not to pH ranging from 7 . 2 to 7. 4 . There are numerous mechanisms that work to stabilize these fluids so that the cells are not subject to fluctuations of pH sensitive . Substances that serve to stabilize this mechanism of pH are called buffers . The buffer substances have the ability to bind and remove ions from the solution when their concentration begins to climb . Conversely, buffers can release ions whenever their concentration begins to run low . The swabs then help to minimize the fluctuations in pH. This is an important function because many chemical reactions normally occur in living organisms by releasing or absorbing ions. NOTE : Dr. Hayashi is a Heart Specialist and Director of the Water Institute of Japan . Oxygen : Too much of a good thing ? Oxygen is essential for life . It is relatively stable in the air , but when it is absorbed in an excessive way from the body can become active and unstable and has a tendency to attach itself to any biological molecule , including molecules of healthy cells. The chemical activity of these free radicals and due to one or more pairs of unpaired electrons . About 2% of the oxygen we normally breathe becomes active oxygen , and this amount was increased by approximately 20% when doing aerobic exercises . This type of radicals with unpaired electrons are unstable and bring with them a high oxidation potential , which means they are capable of stealing electrons from other cells.

This type of mechanism is very useful for creating disinfectants such as hydrogen peroxide and ozone which can be used to sterilize wounds or medical instrumentation . In our body these free radicals are of great benefit to their ability to attack and eliminate bacteria, viruses and other waste products .   Active oxygen in the body Problems arise , however , when too many of these free radicals begin to circulate in the body where they can damage healthy tissue . The decay is a process that is when microbes invade the air as proteins, peptides , amino acids of eggs , fish and meat. The result of this is a set of disgusting substances such as: Hydrogen sulfide ammonia histamine indole phenol skatole However, these substances are also produced naturally in the digestive tract when digiriamo food , from this it follows that the odor is not pleasing take on the stool. The putrefaction of food gone bad is caused by microbes in the air ; and this process is duplicated in the digestive tract by the same microbes . All these waste products produced by the digestion products are pathogenic , which means that they themselves can cause disease in our body. Hydrogen sulfide and ammonia are toxic to tissues and can cause liver damage. The histamine contribute to allergic reactions such as atopic dermatitis , urticaria and asthma. Indoles and phenols are considered carcinogenic . Since these waste products such as hydrogen sulfide , ammonia , histamine , phenols and indoles are toxic , the defense mechanisms of the body try to eliminate them by releasing neutrophils (a type of white blood cells called leukocytes corpuscular ) . These neutrophils are able to produce active oxygen , this oxygen is able to attack and break up the tissue through the acquisition of electrons from the molecules of these toxic cells .

The problem arises when there are too many of these active oxygen molecules in the circulation , also called free radicals that are produced in the body . These are extremely negative and can also attach themselves and normal tissues , healthy cells and damage the genetic makeup. This active oxygen radical , stealing electrons from healthy molecules . This theft of electrons from the oxygen oxidizes the tissues and is therefore due to the disease . Since this active oxygen damage normal tissue , it is essential to eliminate this oxygen from the body before it causes disintegration of healthy tissue . If we were able to find an effective method to block the oxidation of healthy tissues caused by active oxygen , then we will be able to prevent disease.    Antioxidants block dangerous oxidation a way to protect healthy tissues of the damage caused by oxidation by the active oxygen, is that of providing free electrons to active oxygen radicals , these are able to neutralize the high oxidative power and thus prevent that these can react with damaging healthy tissue . The research to demonstrate the relationship between nutrition and cancer is far from complete , but there is much evidence to suggest that what we eat causes an effect on our predisposition to cancer. Some foods seem to have a defensive power against cancer while others promote it. Most of the damage caused by carcinogenic substances contained in foods may be related to their oxidative capacity within the cells. In this process , one molecule of oxygen bizarre this can damage the genetic makeup of the cell. Some researchers believe that substances that prevent oxidation , called antioxidants , are able to block this damage. This naturally leads to the theory that the solution of natural antioxidants may represent an important aspect for the body in the defense against cancer. There are substances that some believe can inhibit cancer including vitamin C , vitamin E, beta-carotene , selenium, glutathione (an amino acid ) . These substances act as reducing agents. They are able to supply electrons to the free radicals and thus block the interaction of the radical book with the normal tissue.   How to avoid disease as we mentioned before , the presence of toxic waste such as hydrogen sulfide , ammonia , histamine , the indoles , phenols and Scatoli , are responsible for the nauseating smell of human feces . In the medical profession , and it is well known that patients suffering from hepatitis or cirrhosis have bad smelling feces and nauseating . Feces particularly offensive due to the presence of toxins , are indicators of certain types of diseases , and the body responds to the presence of these toxins producing neutrophils are able to release active oxygen in an attempt to neutralize the damage to the body that this type of waste product food cause. However when product is an excessive amount of this active oxygen itself damages the cells in the same way that neutralize toxins.

This led us to the conclusion that we can minimize the harmful effects of this active oxygen , active oxygen radicals , reducing the latter with a large dose of electrons Water, the natural solution there is nothing that can replace a healthy balanced diet , especially rich in elements and antioxidants such as vitamin C , vitamin E , beta-carotene , and other foods that are useful to us .     However , these substances are not the best source of free electrons able to block oxidative effect in our normal tissues by the active oxygen . The treated water through electrolysis so that you can increase your potential reductive, is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free radicals to block the oxidative effects of healthy tissue by active oxygen free radicals . We believe that ionized water , water C an excess of free electrons to be able to give active oxygen , is the best solution for the following reasons : the reductive potential of water can be dramatically increased beyond all other antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements. The molecular weight of ionized water is very low , this makes it easily absorbable and therefore able to react quickly and depth of the tissues of our body.  What is ionized water Ionized water is the product of a moderate electrolysis that occurs within a device able to ionize the water . The production of ionized water , its property and how it works in the human body are described in the next section . Ionized water takes origin from the tap water treated , which is not only been filtered , but has also been reform is so that it can provide a large amount of electrons can be donated to active oxygen in the body to block l ‘ oxidation by that of normal cells. The device for manufacturing ionized water Tap water : What it is and what it is not Normal tap water , for example , with a pH of 7 and approximately neutral on the pH scale that goes 0 to 14. When we measure its redox potential with a device ORP , its potential and about +400 up to +500 mV. Since this water in a positive redox potential , it is more likely to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules then . The reduced ionized water , on the other hand carries a negative charge oxide reductive ranging from approximately -250 to -350 mV. This means that this water has a large mass of electrons ready to be donated to active oxygen that steals them . Before we discuss in more detail the properties of ionized water , we take a look at what happens inside a device to produce ionized water . How does a device to produce ionized water a water ionizer , it is a little bigger and thicker than a large dictionary, it is an electrical appliance connected to your kitchen water faucet is able to activate an electrolytic process water faucet which is fed before that this water can be consumed by you or used for cooking or cleaning the house . A special connection via the tap water through a plastic tube directly to the ionizer . Inside the unit, the water is first filtered through a filter of active carbon , and then the filtered water passes through an ionization chamber formed by titanium plates subsided platinum , occurs precisely where the electrolysis process . The positive ions , called cations , are captured by the negative electrodes thus giving rise to reduced water . Ions , anions , negatively charged and are attracted by the positive electrodes produce anodic water ( oxidized water ) Through the process of electrolysis , the reduced water not only acquires a large amount of electrons , but also clusters of water are reduced by aggregates of magnitude of 10 13 molecules per cluster 5 6 molecules . The reduced water out of the tap , while the oxidized water comes from a separate tube directly on the sink. You can use the reduced water for drinking or cooking . Put the oxidising potential oxidized water makes it a good sterilizing agent , ideal for washing hands washing food or kitchen utensils , or treat minor wounds , and so on. What produces an ionization of water comparison of the redox potential after the electrolytic process that takes place inside the machine, the reduced water comes out from the cathode to the anode, while the oxidized water comes out . Compare these measures for these three types of water : tap water before electrolysis , reduced water and oxidized water . In this case the crucial parameter is represented by the redox potential and not pH . Traditionally we have always valued the power of water , starting from its pH , in other words , we evaluated whether the water was acidic alkaline . According to Dr . Yoshiaki Matsuo PhD. , inventor of the device water ionization says : “In my opinion the redox potential is more important than pH . The importance of pH and overestimated. For example , the pH of the blood in the average is 7 . 4 a condition of acidosis or alkalosis is defined according to the deviation of three values ​​6 . 9:07 . 4 . Nothing , however, has never been discussed regarding its redox potential ORP ” The pH of tap water is about seven , that is neutral . When the tap water undergoes the process of electrolysis and becomes ionized water , this water reduced to a pH of about 9, while the oxidized water to a pH of about 4 . So even if you produce alkaline water with a pH 9 by adding a solution of sodium or take off acid water at pH 3 by adding a solution of hydrochloric acid , you will find very few changes in the value of the two redox ORP water . On the other hand, if you divide tap water through an electrolytic process , you can see that its ORP may fluctuate by + / or -1000 mV. Through the process of electrolysis can then get water reduced C1 negative redox potential that is good for our health . < / strong > The use of ionized water what makes ionized water . The ionizer of water produces two types of water with different redox potential , with one another reductive potential and the other with another oxidative potential .  Reduced water reduced when the water is taken internally , having redox potential between -250 and -350 mV , is ready to donate electrons to oxygen radicals bizarre and blocks the interaction of active oxygen with normal molecules. A biological molecule highlighted as BM remains intact and not damaged . Biological molecules that do not undergo oxidative type damage by oxygen free radicals, and less susceptible to infection and disease. Ionized water gives an extra electron and reduces the active oxygen (AO ) , and then renders it harmless . In this way the active oxygen AO is reduced without that he can continue to damage the molecules around him . Substances that have the ability to attack the active oxygen through the donation of electrons are called scavengers in the sense that O sanitation workers clean up the filth . Reduced water so it can be called water scavenger water or garbage man . When ingested , the effect of water is reduced immediately. Ionized water inhibits the excessive fragmentation in the digestive tract indirectly reducing metabolites such as hydrogen sulfide , ammonia , histamine , indole , phenols and Scatoli , the result is to have stool cleaner and less during only after a few days from when you start to drink water on a regular basis . In 1965 , the Minister of Labour Japanese announced that reduced water obtained with the electrolytic method to prevent the normal fermentation of intestinal microbes . Oxidized Water  water oxidized to a redox potential of +700 to +800 mV is an oxidizing agent and can steal electrons from bacteria and kill them then . The oxidized water produced by the device to the ionized water , can be used to clean hands , kitchen utensils , wash fruits and vegetables , sterilize cutting boards for kitchen or type of minor wounds . Clinical trials have shown that the oxidized water is effective for treating the so-called athlete’s foot, minor burns , insect moved , wounds, and so on. Dr. Yoshiaki Matsuo , Japanese Deputy Director of the Institute for the water, has developed another apparatus capable of producing water for the oxidized with a redox potential of +1050 mV or even more , has a pH less than 2. 7 . tests have proven that this super- oxidized water can quickly destroy Methicillin -resistant bacteria , such as MRSA staphylococcus aureus or Escherichia coli. Although the water to the oxidized a powerful stabilizing agent , it is not harmful to the skin . In fact can be used to treat wounds. The water for the oxidant approved its efficiency in Japanese hospitals to treat folds and decubitus lesions with postoperative infectious complications . Beyond this , the look more exciting for the future application of water to the oxidized and certainly in the field of agriculture where it has been used very efficiently on the plants to kill fungi and other diseases. The water for the oxidized non-toxic , so agricultural workers can apply it without wearing special protection because there is no danger to the skin or respiratory system. Another benefit of the use of water for the oxidized and to spray the plants as this produces no harm to the environment , in particular as regards the accumulation which instead produce chemicals in the soil .

Ionized Water superior to antioxidant diet Today we read more about nutrition, to what we eat in order to stay healthy. This is the important thing , however , it is surprising that most of us fail to realize that most of what we eat is composed of water. The vegetables and fruits are 90% water , while the fish meat are water for about 70% . Even those who emphasize the importance of vitamin C in the diet, they have to admit that its rated power , the fact that redox potential of this important vitamin , rapidly diminishes with time from the date of preparation . Carbohydrates , which are a major component of fruits and vegetables, have a molecular weight of about 180 while the water has a molecular weight that is much lower than 18 .   The ionized water , with its low molecular weight and the other reduction potential , makes it truly a substance scavenger type upper against active oxygen . But electrolysis inside the ionization chamber not only charge the water with electrons, see also reduces the size of the aggregates , making very small clusters . The analysis with nuclear magnetic resonance reveals that tap water and well water , cluster compounds have from 10 to 15 water molecules . The water which has undergone the process of electrolysis to be ionized , reduces the cluster to a size of 56 water molecules per cluster. The graph above , which shows the nuclear magnetic resonance measuring the size of the cluster through the line width in average amplitude and shows 65 Hz for reduced water and 133 Hz for tap water . This reveals that the reduced ionized water clusters that are half of those of tap water . This is the reason why ionized water is absorbed much steeper mind from the body than tap water . Ionized water penetrates quickly in the body and blocks the oxidation of biological molecules by active oxygen donating a generous amount of electrons, and enabling biological molecules to replace naturally without being damaged due to oxidation which is due to the diseases . Summary and conclusions the pros and cons of the theory prevent diseases before they arise According to Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi , Director of the Water Institute of Japan, In order to eliminate the wide front of pollutants that contaminate the source , we must face the problem head upstream in the water, so the source of pollution, and not in the direction of the current where we can only treat it after it has been polluted with ‘ evidence of damage caused by pollution. Consequently, the contribution of ionized water in disease prevention must be seen as a preventive treatment against type , that is, in the sense that we must educate the public to use it before they manifest diseases. upstream According to our model , we consider the digestive tract upstream where we assume as water and food. Although many people today in the actions of some have grown more skeptical about the organization. However, tend to focus more on what the food contains rather than as foods are broken down in the digestive tract .  

For example, consider a typical balanced nutrition consisting of meat and vegetables. Meat proteins are metabolized into amines while nitrates from fertilizers are used to grow vegetables , they are metabolized to nitrite in the digestive tract . These amines and nitrates combine to form nitrosamine substance known to be carcinogenic . We have already discussed that odorous stools are the result of an excessive fragmentation at the level of the digestive tract , so reduced water has a very important function because it fails to make an important function of Upstream on the digestive tract by reducing the excessive fragmentation . Evidence of this is the production of faeces much cleaner and less odorants when people take this water on a regular basis . Downstream downstream Following the current following the current in the digestive tract , starting from the liver , reduced water rapidly enter the liver and other organs due to , first , its low molecular weight , the second , the size of its cluster. At the tissue level through the body, reduced water with its margin of safety , and its great potential redox is ready to donate electrons in its path and then to neutralize active oxygen so that it can damage the molecules of the healthy cells. Normal cells are you from theft of active oxygen and electrons can then grow and mature function and regenerate without interference from the active oxygen free radicals which tend to steal electrons from molecules of biological tissues healthy and normal.   The boom in the water we are now in the middle of a water . In Japan and other countries, people buy different types of bottled water in the jar even though the water was most abundant absurd that we as a resource.

Research shows that the mineral water in an ORP of +200 mV for a bit ‘ lower than the +400 mV measured for ordinary tap water . We can say that mineral water is marginally better than tap water if we start from the point of view of the ORP . Comparing to any type of commercial water , we must say , that ionized water as a potential of -250 mV at least 300 goes beyond the possibility of comparison own due to its ability to be able to really sweep away free radicals .

If we were able to find an effective method to block the oxidation of healthy tissues caused by active oxygen , then we will be able to prevent disease.    Antioxidants block dangerous oxidation a way to protect healthy tissues of the damage caused by oxidation by the active oxygen, is that of providing free electrons to active oxygen radicals , these are able to neutralize the high oxidative power and thus prevent that these can react with damaging healthy tissue . The research to demonstrate the relationship between nutrition and cancer is far from complete , but there is much evidence to suggest that what we eat causes an effect on our predisposition to cancer. Some foods seem to have a defensive power against cancer while others promote it. Most of the damage caused by carcinogenic substances contained in foods may be related to their oxidative capacity within the cells. In this process , one molecule of oxygen bizarre this can damage the genetic makeup of the cell. Some researchers believe that substances that prevent oxidation , called antioxidants , are able to block this damage. This naturally leads to the theory that the solution of natural antioxidants may represent an important aspect for the body in the defense against cancer. There are substances that some believe can inhibit cancer including vitamin C , vitamin E, beta-carotene , selenium, glutathione (an amino acid ) . These substances act as reducing agents. They are able to supply electrons to the free radicals and thus block the interaction of the radical book with the normal tissue. How to avoid disease   as we mentioned before , the presence of toxic waste such as hydrogen sulfide , ammonia , histamine , the indoles , phenols and Scatoli , are responsible for the nauseating smell of human feces . In the medical profession , and it is well known that patients suffering from hepatitis or cirrhosis have bad smelling feces and nauseating . Feces particularly offensive due to the presence of toxins , are indicators of certain types of diseases , and the body responds to the presence of these toxins producing neutrophils are able to release active oxygen in an attempt to neutralize the damage to the body that this type of waste product food cause. However when product is an excessive amount of this active oxygen itself damages the cells in the same way that neutralize toxins. This led us to the conclusion that we can minimize the harmful effects of this active oxygen , active oxygen radicals , reducing the latter with a large dose of electrons. Water, the natural solution there is nothing that can replace a healthy balanced diet , especially rich in elements and antioxidants such as vitamin C , vitamin E , beta-carotene , and other foods that are useful to us . However , these substances are not the best source of free electrons able to block oxidative effect in our normal tissues by the active oxygen . The treated water through electrolysis so that you can increase your potential reductive, is the best solution to the problem of providing a safe source of free radicals to block the oxidative effects of healthy tissue by active oxygen free radicals . We believe that ionized water , water C an excess of free electrons to be able to give active oxygen , is the best solution for the following reasons : the reductive potential of water can be dramatically increased beyond all other antioxidants in food or vitamin supplements. The molecular weight of ionized water is very low , this makes it easily absorbable and therefore able to react quickly and depth of the tissues of our body.  What is ionized water Ionized water is the product of a moderate electrolysis that occurs within a device able to ionize the water . The production of ionized water , its property and how it works in the human body are described in the next section . Ionized water takes origin from the tap water treated , which is not only been filtered , but has also been reform is so that it can provide a large amount of electrons can be donated to active oxygen in the body to block l ‘ oxidation by that of normal cells.

The device for manufacturing ionized water Tap water : What it is and what it is not Normal tap water , for example , with a pH of 7 and approximately neutral on the pH scale that goes 0 to 14. When we measure its redox potential with a device ORP , its potential and about +400 up to +500 mV. Since this water in a positive redox potential , it is more likely to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules then . The reduced ionized water , on the other hand carries a negative charge oxide reductive ranging from approximately -250 to -350 mV. This means that this water has a large mass of electrons ready to be donated to active oxygen that steals them . Before we discuss in more detail the properties of ionized water , we take a look at what happens inside a device to produce ionized water .   How does a device to produce ionized water a water ionizer , it is a little bigger and thicker than a large dictionary, it is an electrical appliance connected to your kitchen water faucet is able to activate an electrolytic process water faucet which is fed before that this water can be consumed by you or used for cooking or cleaning the house . A special connection via the tap water through a plastic tube directly to the ionizer .

Inside the unit, the water is first filtered through a filter of active carbon , and then the filtered water passes through an ionization chamber formed by titanium plates subsided platinum , occurs precisely where the electrolysis process . The positive ions , called cations , are captured by the negative electrodes thus giving rise to reduced water . Ions , anions , negatively charged and are attracted by the positive electrodes produce anodic water ( oxidized water ) Through the process of electrolysis , the reduced water not only acquires a large amount of electrons , but also clusters of water are reduced by aggregates of magnitude of 10 13 molecules per cluster 5 6 molecules . The reduced water out of the tap , while the oxidized water comes from a separate tube directly on the sink. You can use the reduced water for drinking or cooking . Put the oxidising potential oxidized water makes it a good sterilizing agent , ideal for washing hands washing food or kitchen utensils , or treat minor wounds , and so on. What produces an ionization of water comparison of the redox potential after the electrolytic process that takes place inside the machine, the reduced water comes out from the cathode to the anode, while the oxidized water comes out . Compare these measures for these three types of water : tap water before electrolysis , reduced water and oxidized water . In this case the crucial parameter is represented by the redox potential and not pH . Traditionally we have always valued the power of water , starting from its pH , in other words , we evaluated whether the water was acidic alkaline . According to Dr . Yoshiaki Matsuo PhD. , inventor of the device water ionization says : “In my opinion the redox potential is more important than pH . The importance of pH and overestimated. For example , the pH of the blood in the average is 7 . 4 a condition of acidosis or alkalosis is defined according to the deviation of three values ​​6 . 9:07 . 4 . Nothing , however, has never been discussed regarding its redox potential ORP ” The pH of tap water is about seven , that is neutral . When the tap water undergoes the process of electrolysis and becomes ionized water , this water reduced to a pH of about 9, while the oxidized water to a pH of about 4 . So even if you produce alkaline water with a pH 9 by adding a solution of sodium or take off acid water at pH 3 by adding a solution of hydrochloric acid , you will find very few changes in the value of the two redox ORP water . On the other hand, if you divide tap water through an electrolytic process , you can see that its ORP may fluctuate by + / or -1000 mV. Through the process of electrolysis can then get water reduced C1 negative redox potential that is good for our health . The use of ionized water what makes ionized water The ionizer of water produces two types of water with different redox potential , with one another reductive potential and the other with another oxidative potential .  Reduced water reduced when the water is taken internally , having redox potential between -250 and -350 mV , is ready to donate electrons to oxygen radicals bizarre and blocks the interaction of active oxygen with normal molecules. A biological molecule highlighted as BM remains intact and not damaged . Biological molecules that do not undergo oxidative type damage by oxygen free radicals, and less susceptible to infection and disease. Ionized water gives an extra electron and reduces the active oxygen (AO ) , and then renders it harmless .

In this way the active oxygen AO is reduced without that he can continue to damage the molecules around him . Substances that have the ability to attack the active oxygen through the donation of electrons are called scavengers in the sense that O sanitation workers clean up the filth . Reduced water so it can be called water scavenger water or garbage man . When ingested , the effect of water is reduced immediately. Ionized water inhibits the excessive fragmentation in the digestive tract indirectly reducing metabolites such as hydrogen sulfide , ammonia , histamine , indole , phenols and Scatoli , the result is to have stool cleaner and less during only after a few days from when you start to drink water on a regular basis . In 1965 , the Minister of Labour Japanese announced that reduced water obtained with the electrolytic method to prevent the normal fermentation of intestinal microbes . Oxidized Water  water oxidized to a redox potential of +700 to +800 mV is an oxidizing agent and can steal electrons from bacteria and kill them then . The oxidized water produced by the device to the ionized water , can be used to clean hands , kitchen utensils , wash fruits and vegetables , sterilize cutting boards for kitchen or type of minor wounds . Clinical trials have shown that the oxidized water is effective for treating the so-called athlete’s foot, minor burns , insect moved , wounds, and so on. Dr. Yoshiaki Matsuo , Japanese Deputy Director of the Institute for the water, has developed another apparatus capable of producing water for the oxidized with a redox potential of +1050 mV or even more , has a pH less than 2. 7 . tests have proven that this super- oxidized water can quickly destroy Methicillin -resistant bacteria , such as MRSA staphylococcus aureus or Escherichia coli. Although the water to the oxidized a powerful stabilizing agent , it is not harmful to the skin . In fact can be used to treat wounds.   The water for the oxidant approved its efficiency in Japanese hospitals to treat folds and decubitus lesions with postoperative infectious complications . Beyond this , the look more exciting for the future application of water to the oxidized and certainly in the field of agriculture where it has been used very efficiently on the plants to kill fungi and other diseases. The water for the oxidized non-toxic , so agricultural workers can apply it without wearing special protection because there is no danger to the skin or respiratory system. Another benefit of the use of water for the oxidized and to spray the plants as this produces no harm to the environment , in particular as regards the accumulation which instead produce chemicals in the soil . Ionized Water superior to antioxidant diet Today we read more about nutrition, to what we eat in order to stay healthy. This is the important thing , however , it is surprising that most of us fail to realize that most of what we eat is composed of water. The vegetables and fruits are 90% water , while the fish meat are water for about 70% . Even those who emphasize the importance of vitamin C in the diet, they have to admit that its rated power , the fact that redox potential of this important vitamin , rapidly diminishes with time from the date of preparation . Carbohydrates , which are a major component of fruits and vegetables, have a molecular weight of about 180 while the water has a molecular weight that is much lower than 18 . The ionized water , with its low molecular weight and the other reduction potential , makes it truly a substance scavenger type upper against active oxygen . But electrolysis inside the ionization chamber not only charge the water with electrons, see also reduces the size of the aggregates , making very small clusters .

The analysis with nuclear magnetic resonance reveals that tap water and well water , cluster compounds have from 10 to 15 water molecules . The water which has undergone the process of electrolysis to be ionized , reduces the cluster to a size of 56 water molecules per cluster. The graph above , which shows the nuclear magnetic resonance measuring the size of the cluster through the line width in average amplitude and shows 65 Hz for reduced water and 133 Hz for tap water .   This reveals that the reduced ionized water clusters that are half of those of tap water . This is the reason why ionized water is absorbed much steeper mind from the body than tap water . Ionized water penetrates quickly in the body and blocks the oxidation of biological molecules by active oxygen donating a generous amount of electrons, and enabling biological molecules to replace naturally without being damaged due to oxidation which is due to the diseases . Summary and conclusions the pros and cons of the theory prevent diseases before they arise According to Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi , Director of the Water Institute of Japan, In order to eliminate the wide front of pollutants that contaminate the source , we must face the problem head upstream in the water, so the source of pollution, and not in the direction of the current where we can only treat it after it has been polluted with ‘ evidence of damage caused by pollution. Consequently, the contribution of ionized water in disease prevention must be seen as a preventive treatment against type , that is, in the sense that we must educate the public to use it before they manifest diseases. According to our model , we consider the digestive tract upstream where we assume as water and food. Although many people today in the actions of some have grown more skeptical about the organization. However, tend to focus more on what the food contains rather than as foods are broken down in the digestive tract . For example, consider a typical balanced nutrition consisting of meat and vegetables. Back to Scientific Articles Index
