Why Buy An Ionizer?

by Amanda DeAmicis on September 09, 2016

Many people wonder why it is necessary to purchase a home water ionizer when so many brands of bottled water are available, some of which claim to be alkaline. The first thing to consider is that electrically ionized, hydrogen-rich water has the highest levels of antioxidant activity – when it is first produced. Any time you make alkaline, ionized water and bottle it, transport it, and sell it on the shelf, it will not be nearly as potent.

The cost factor is the next thing to consider. How much would you spend on bottled water over a period of 10 years if you drank the amount recommended? The answer depends on the kind of water you purchase, but a litre of specialty bottled water is rarely less than $1.99, and 2-3 litres a day is a common intake. That adds up! $120 to $180/month … you can finance an AlkaViva water ionizer for much less than that.
Finally, there’s the damage that plastic bottles do to the environment. Plastic bottles guzzle resources … it takes 5 litre of water to make just one plastic bottle and the cost in oil is tremendous … 30 million barrels of oil is required to make the plastic bottles for one year of US bottled water consumption. Not to mention the unhealthy petro chemicals that can leach into the water from the bottle, and the fact that most bottled water is simply denatured tap water.

Don’t forget the physical changes that occur in the water with ionization! The following alterations to water through water ionizers support better hydration and wellness:
Clean Water!

AlkaViva’s UltraWater filtration technology is superior to any similar filtration process available today. The results are documented by EPA-certified lab testing – and UltraWater technology removes almost all hard-to-remove chemicals and toxins to 99.9% while leaving the beneficial alkaline minerals intact. No other water ionizer offers the certainty that you are drinking the cleanest and healthiest ionized water possible.
Alkalinity and Ionized Water

When water is ionized, it also concentrates (on the alkaline side) the essential alkaline minerals like magnesium, calcium and potassium that occur naturally in water. These minerals are partially transformed from bonded particles into charged ionic forms that are more bio-available. Ionized water also contains an abundance of the H2 (or diatomic hydrogen) that penetrates into cells and acts as a selective anti-oxidant.

Redox Potential

Normal tap water, for example, with a pH around 7 is approximately neutral on the pH scale of 0 to 14. When measured with an ORP (oxidation potential) meter its redox potential is approximately +400 to +500 mV. Because it has a positive redox potential, it is apt to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules. Reduced ionized water, on the other hand, has a negative redox potential of approximately -250 to -550 mV (or less). This means it has a large mass of electrons ready to donate to electron-thieving, active oxygen.

Optimal Hydration

The process of electrolysis changes the surface tension and structure of water. Using a method called NMR spectroscopy, scientist have shown a significant reduction in the size of water molecular clusters, from 15-20 down to 5 or 6 water molecules per cluster. It becomes “wetter water” which can more easily penetrate cell membranes, offering a stream of hydration and renewal. The turnover of “fresh water in and waste out” helps our cells to work at peak performance. Foggy thinking, joint pains, constipation and digestive issues often resolve with proper hydration. Proper hydration takes your body from a stagnant “polluted lake” to one that is sparkling and “fed by glacial streams”.

Antioxidant Activity from H2 (Diatomic Hydrogen)

Molecular Hydrogen (H2 ) is the Master Antioxidant that selectively neutralizes free radicals that damage the cells in the body. It has been found in some ancient water sources (like Nordenau). A water ionizer generates molecular hydrogen through electrolysis.

Ionized water (as you change from dehydrated to hydrated) helps neutralize free radicals in the body and block the oxidation of normal cells. It’s like drinking glass after glass of anti-oxidants that cling to and help neutralize the damaging, oxidizing, free-radicals within your body. Over 500 peer reviewed studies have been published since 1990 that deal with the benefits from drinking H2 in water.

So given all the benefits, why NOT buy an ionizer? With affordable financing, the monthly cost can be less than buying bottled water for one person – definitely a money-saver for a family. The only question left is which brand to buy. AlkaViva ionizers are well priced, utilize UltraWater technology, and are the performance leaders among all major brands.

Why Choose AlkaViva Ionizers

AlkaViva has been selling water ionizers for over 15 years in the USA and about 30 countries worldwide.  We have only worked exclusively with the most recognized and established manufacturers to provide a quality range at affordable prices. Quality is especially important when it comes to making sure that your important investment will not only last, but continue to give top perform for many years. That is why all our ionizers automatically clean in the background with every use.

Recognizing that it makes little sense to ionize water that has not first been well filtered, AlkaViva decided to manufacture its own made-in-USA filters. To this end we spent over 24 months and lots of money before having our filters tested by a Government certified (EPA) testing laboratory.  The results are available on the alkaviva.com website and speak for themselves. No other ionizer importer has anything close to this level of filtration.

The Tennant Company, a recognized leader in designing, manufacturing and marketing solutions that help create a cleaner, safer, healthier world, decided to “go green” by using very strong ionized water, which is known to be extremely cleansing, in their machines. Before deciding who would create their ionization technology machines, they spent over $200,000 just in researching all the major ionizer companies to see who the best is. After all that research and money investment Tennant selected AlkaViva, to create their equipment. That’s a tremendous endorsement of the quality of our manufacturers in the water ionizer industry.  

The solid reputation of AlkaViva allows our customers to pay off their ionizers over time for as little as $30 a month. To find out more about financing please visit our website.
