A water ionizer (also known as an alkaline ionizer) is home equipment that used to increase the drinking water PH by electrolysis to detached the incoming water stream into acidic and alkaline components. Alkaline water is the alkaline stream of the treated water.
A glass of alkaline water any other day would have no effect on your body. If you drink a gallon of alkaline water every day, your body will have to work harder to retain its pH, which means your body will produce more gastric juices and digestive enzymes over time.
Antioxidants (hydroxyl ions) can last for 18 to 24 hours. The alkaline properties (higher pH) can last around 1-2 weeks. The molecule clusters with smaller sizes would last around 1-3 months.
According to researchers, alkaline water has additional benefits that normal tap or bottled water do not. Alkaline water contains a higher amount of Ph levels than normal bottled water, which helps to reduce acidity levels in the body.
Bottled water contains toxic chemicals like phthalates, which have been related to increased cancer risk. Plastic bottles also contain BPA, which has been related to a variety of reproductive problems.
