These machines pass a current over conductive plates, generally made from Platinum. When the water is passed through these electrically charged plates, the effect is creating smaller water molecules that are more easily absorbed by the body, translating into better overall hydration, something of paramount importance to everyone, especially in our regional climates. Ionizers can also create water that is:
Counteracting the body’s acidic composition and acting as a natural detoxifier. Increasing the body's antioxidant levels has been linked in numerous studies with higher energy levels, anti-aging effects and disease inhibiting properties in everything from ulcers and arteriosclerosis to diabetes and even cancers.
Cooking with alkaline water dramatically improves the flavor of vegetables, rice, pastas, soups and teas. In addition, though most plants prefer slightly acidic soil (see below), certain plants such as eucalyptus, ficus, juniper, aloe, yucca, lilacs and irises thrive on alkaline water.
Higher Alkaline water levels (pH of 10 or more) are great for thoroughly washing fruits and vegetables to remove harmful bacteria and pesticides; makes a great stain remover for removing coffee, oil, grass and other stubborn stains; and dramatically enhances kitchen, bath and other household cleaning chores.
When Acidic water is applied topically to skin, it exfoliates the skin removing dead cells and acts as an astringent which tightens the skin, removes fine lines and wrinkles. And, because acidic water kills surface bacteria on the skin, it also helps fight acne and blemishes without harmful chemical residues. Shampooing and rinsing your hair with acidic water enhances shine, manageability and reduces breakage. Acidic water can also enhance certain plant growth such as roses, sunflowers, begonias, many vegetables including squash and melons, azaleas, rhododendrons, hibiscus, tomatoes, strawberries and blueberries.
