Alkaline water scam: is alkaline water really good for you?

Alkaline water scam: is alkaline water really good for you?

Unveiling the alkaline water scam: you may be wondering if all the recent hype about alkaline water is real and if the plethora of stated benefits of drinking alkaline water are really real. Is alkaline water really all that it’s cracked up to be? Here is the 411:

When referring to alkaline water, the first thing we must clarify is that there is a difference between bottled “alkaline water” and ionized alkaline water. Most bottled “alkaline water” that you find at Whole Foods and other health stores or supermarkets are usually processed with “minerals” so that they simply read as alkaline, and are not actually ionized via electrolysis which is what gives real alkaline water the many health properties that it’s known for.

So, in a way, it’s not the mere pH level of the water that matters when it comes to your health (because, as we know, an alkaline pH can be achieved by simply adding chemicals like lye and other byproducts to tap water so that it doesn’t corrode city pipes.. does it mean that tap water can technically read as alkaline? Yes. Does this mean that tap water is healthy? Not necessarily..). So, there are several very important steps to consider when assessing alkaline water’s benefits, and this comes down to the source and means by which your alkaline water is produced:

Ultimately, to understand how regular alkaline water and ionized alkaline water differ, it’s important to realize that there is a fundamental difference between pH and alkalinity. The most important concept is that water can have an alkaline pH level but vary in its alkalinity. So, what is alkalinity and why is it all the rave?

Alkalinity measures the ability of water to neutralize acids. Alkaline water can have high alkalinity while having only a moderately alkaline pH because, again, alkalinity and pH are not the same thing. If you are trying to balance body pH and reduce acidity in your body, you want water with high alkalinity to neutralize as much acidity as possible.

The difference is that alkaline water made by a water ionizer has antioxidant potential. Bottled alkaline water doesn’t.

The pH (Potential Hydrogen) of water refers to its ability to attract positively-charged Hydrogen ions (H ). The pH levels in your body are maintained within a narrow range by your body and so this is in part why the pH level of your water isn’t as important as its level of alkalinity when it comes to your health. When you’re drinking alkaline water for health, you’re drinking alkaline water for is it’s acid-neutralizing alkalinity and it’s antioxidant potential, which are produced only by high-quality alkaline water ionizers.

What is Ionization and why is it so important? Ionization is the process by which an atom or molecule either gains or loses electrons and thus turns into an ion or “charged particle.”  When an atom transforms into an ion, its electrical charge can be either positive or negative, which depends on whether the atom gained or lost electrons. The minerals in ionized alkaline water – namely calcium, magnesium, and potassium – gain electrons from the ionization process and the surplus of electrons are what give the water a negative electrical charge. The negative electrical charge is what gives ionized alkaline water its antioxidant potential and, thus, its ability to act as a strong antioxidant.

TAKEAWAY:

The difference between alkaline ionized water and ionized water is that: water that has been chemically manipulated to read as alkaline with the addition of “minerals” (as the majority of bottled alkaline waters are) does not have the true alkalinity value, micro-clustered ionization properties and antioxidant potential that ionized alkaline water does.

ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) – the benefits of alkaline ionized water produced from an alkaline water ionizer

What’s the difference between regular bottled alkaline water and alkaline water produced by a water ionizer? An alkaline water ionizer gives a negative electrical charge into the water it makes. That negative electrical charge then gives the water antioxidant potential which can be measured just like the charge of a battery. The negative charge is called its ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) and, naturally, the more negative the charge value, the more antioxidant properties the water has.

In-vitro (in the lab) studies have shown that water with a high negative ORP value, when mixed with vitamin C, enhances the antioxidant effect of vitamin C. Naturally, then, you must be thinking that you can mix ionized alkaline water with vitamin C and enhance its properties. This is true and one of the many benefits of drinking ionized alkaline water which has a negative ORP! However, the only problem with the antioxidant potential of alkaline water is that it cannot be stored for long periods of time and is most potent when produced fresh by the water ionizer (hence why any bottled alkaline water, even if ionized, do not have the health benefits of water that has been freshly ionized by an alkaline water ionizer). To be more precise, the antioxidant value of alkaline water begins to decline after about 24 hours so it’s best to be consumed fresh from the source of your water ionizer as it is produced.

Alkaline water scam: is alkaline water really good for you?

Why Bottled Alkaline Water has no Antioxidant Potential, but can have toxic antimony in it

Ultimately, bottled alkaline water has no antioxidant potential because the antioxidant potential does not survive prolonged periods of time. Due to this, the healthiest alkaline water is produced and consumed fresh from a water ionizer. The lack of ORP value is just one issue with bottled alkaline water, though.

Another problem with bottled alkaline water is its possible chemical contamination. BPA, phthalates, and antimony have all been detected in bottled water and are considered as potent hormone disruptors and potential carcinogens. Antimony is a heavy metal and a known carcinogen. Alkaline water actually draws antimony out of plastic, so the antimony contamination will be worse with bottled alkaline water than it is for plain bottled water. Another reason why you want to drink freshly produced alkaline ionized water from an alkaline water ionizer.

Another issue with bottled alkaline water is its financial cost and environmental impact. Investing in a high-quality alkaline water ionizer that is made with medical-grade parts (like this brand) will save you a lot of money down the line. With an alkaline water ionizer in your home, you can produce an unlimited amount of freshly ionized alkaline water at the push of a button and will never have to buy bottled water again! Imagine the time, energy, and money that goes into buying bottled water – and then imagine it eliminated! This is partly why so many people are installing alkaline water ionizers in their kitchens (which are very easy to install and simply fasten to your faucet) and no longer buying expensive bottled water. High-quality alkaline water ionizers (like those made by 40 year old company, Enagic) are built with medical-grade parts and are made to last a lifetime. This means with one single purchase of a water ionizer you will be able to produce an unlimited supply of pure, ionized, alkaline water in your very own home.

Triple the Antioxidant Potential of Vitamin C with Ionized Alkaline Water

A study called Electrolyzed-reduced water protects against oxidative damage to DNA, RNA, and protein tested the effect of mixing ionized alkaline water with Vitamin C. The result was that ionized alkaline water tripled the antioxidant strength of Vitamin C. It’s simple to reap the benefits of this boosted antioxidant benefit with a water ionizer. Simply mix the juice of a lemon, lime, orange or any citrus fruit with alkaline water produced from your water ionizer and drink immediately.

What is the best, healthiest bottled water ?

The most reliable, safe, non-toxic water ionizer: Enagic Kangen Water LeveLuk SD501 Filter

What is the best, healthiest bottled water?

What is the best, healthiest bottled water? Is it Evian, Smart Water, Perrier, Propel Fitness, Poland? Or is it Essentia? Dassani? Voss?

In an analysis of virtually all bottled water brand products, almost every single bottled water brand tested with an acidic – even brands claiming to be alkaline in pH. So, why are we considering the acidity level of bottled water when testing the value of various bottled waters? Read on below to find out why the pH level of your water matters so much, and which water brand makes the cut.

ph-chart-sickness-health.jpg

First and foremost, the main method that bottled water companies use to purify water, with the exception of just a very few, is to use extreme filtration and ozonation to treat the water prior to bottling it, neither of which make the water healthier and is NOT better than what your local water company does at all. These extreme measures of filtration also tend to make the water acidic.

Why bottled water, including Reverse Osmosis Water, is not as healthy as you think:

  1. Extreme Filtration: The majority of the bottled water companies use extreme filtration [ion-exchange, demineralization, reverse osmosis, distillation, deionization or any combination of these]. Regardless of the source, wells, springs, rivers, lakes, and municipal water supplies, when you use extreme filtration it is proven over and over that you create dead-water (what water is living water?). Dead water is void of all healthy minerals, similar to acid rain. It’s called dead water because of the death of tissues, cells and life caused by this type of water. It takes a while for acidic rain-water to soak into the ground, trickle through layers of calcium and other rock and in the process calcium, magnesium, potassium and other healthy minerals dissolve into it. Then with one foul swoop these bottling companies “treat” the water by removing everything from it, including all of the healthy minerals.
  2. The disinfection of bottled water usually includes ozonation. The process of ozonation is basically infusing the water with oxygen [which is another way of saying oxidizing it]. Oxidizing is the opposite to anti-oxidants (which water is naturally abundant in anti-oxidants?). Oxidization of bottled water is used to kill germs, but creates complications by adding too many free-radicals – more than what is healthy for the body. 
  3. Safety of bottled water vs tap water: The result is that most brands of bottled water are void of healthy minerals, have no electrolytes, and are acidic. An extra problem is that water wants minerals in it and it will dissolve more minerals as soon as it can. It will absorb acidic minerals from the air and alkaline minerals from your bones, joints and muscles in order to fill the void created by stripping the water of its minerals. When you consume a lot of extremely purified water it will rob your body of its healthy, essential minerals as you drink. Not good. (Looking for water that will help re-mineralize your body instead of robbing it? Click here).
  4. A study done by the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, was conducted for the purpose of educating patients on the dangers of dental erosion and tooth decay which is caused by over consumption of acidic foods and beverages. Most of the bottled water they tested had a more acidic pH when tested in the lab than the value listed in their water quality reports.

 TESTING OF 20 DIFFERENT BOTTLED WATER BRANDS:

In testing over 20+ different brands of bottled water, it’s found that almost all bottled water is actually inferior to filtered tap water, and in particular when testing the water’s pH.

DO BOTTLING COMPANIES REALLY FILTER THE WATER BETTER THAN YOUR MUNICIPAL WATER COMPANY?

The answer is, simply, NO. Municipal water companies do a pretty good job of filtering the water, and their quality of filtration is highly regulated. They do add chemicals, such as chlorine, to treat your water, but these can be filtered out if you have a high-quality water filter (like Enagic’s LeveLuk SD501 Alkaline Kangen Water Ionizer which both removes harmful byproducts from your water and also naturally ionizes it to create alkaline, high-anti-oxidant water… it’s no wonder that Obama and his cardiologist both drink Enagic’s Kangen Water!). The water lines going from the water company all the way to your tap are also regulated, by municipal codes.

Considering this, the very best recommendation is to invest in a high-quality kitchen sink water filter (in particular a medical grade water filter and ionizer like this one) that will safely and effectively remove chlorine, chloramine, fluoride, etc., and ionize the water so that it is abundant in anti-oxidants and more readily absorbable by your body and cells (this is why athletes and top celebrity fitness trainers swear by using ionized water filters, in particular Japanese Enagic ionizers, to help improve athletic performance and overall and health as the structure of ionized water is so small that it is able to be absorbed on a cellular level, providing supreme hydration at an incredibly fast rate… this means no water sloshing around in your stomach!). Among all filtering devices, Enagic’s Kangen Water LeveLuk SD501 Ionizer is the most reliable, effective, and trusted brand for producing high quality, pure alkaline water. Also incredibly simple to assemble, it just attaches to your sink faucet and produces water at the push of a button. See this report to learn more about the health benefits of Enagic’s Alkaline Anti-oxidant Kangen Water and why even Obama’s cardiologist endorses it.

Enagic’s Kangen Water Ionizer provides an endless supply of fresh, naturally alkaline anti-oxidant rich water at the push of a button, saving your health, and your budget

 

Enagic Kangen Water filters are built to last a lifetime and are even used as registered medical devices in Japan’s top hospitals due to the medical-grade materials (all made in Japan, including the box!) that Enagic uses when creating their machines. This ensures the most pure, non-toxic, and reliable water supply straight from your tap. Most other filters and ionizers on the market are usually made with lower quality materials that could potentially leak chemicals into the water as it is being produced. So when it comes to health and budget, going for a high-quality Enagic Kangen Water that is sold by an official, reputable distributor (and not off eBay!) is worth the investment.

SUMMARY OF FACTS ON BOTTLED WATER BRANDS AND HIGH-GRADE WATER FILTERS:

  • All brands of bottled water are a lot more expensive than if you filtered the water properly yourself using a high-grade water ionizer.
  • Bottled water is often acidic.
  • Bottled water brands are not regulated for water quality safety as well as municipalities are for your tap water.
  • Environmentally, consuming bottled water is hazardous as we are filling the landfills with empty bottles and we are not able to properly recycle all recycled plastics.
  • The bottles of bottled water are made with petroleum which is a chemical that leaches into the water.
  • Even with the best “high-quality” alkaline bottled water brands, by the time they get to you they won’t be even close to what they’ve advertised as any more.
  • It is far healthier, more environmentally responsbile, and budget-conscious to install a high-grade water ionizer in your kitchen, which assembles easily to your sink faucet and produces an unlimited supply of naturally alkaline, ionized, high anti-oxidant water at the push of a button! Enagic’s LeveLuk Kangen Alkaline Water Ionizer Filter is the most reputable brand in its industry, is made of materials that are 100% made in Japan, is registered as a medical device in Japan’s top hospitals, and has been the leading developer of alkaline water ionizers in Japan for 40+ years. Enagic is trusted and endorsed by hundreds of healthcare professionals even including Obama’s cardiologist.. it is no wonder that Bill Gates just installed 10 Enagic Kangen Alkaline Water ionizers in his newly built home!

What is Alkaline Kangen Water ®?

Alkaline Kangen Water ® is delicious water created from Enagic’s innovative water technology. Not only do these devices filter your tap water, but they also produce ionized alkaline and acidic waters through electrolysis. These waters can be used for various purposes, including drinking, cooking, beauty, and cleaning.

Problems With Commonly Used Waters

Tap water

Tap water

Tap water is a healthier option than soft drinks. But according to the Environmental Working Group, there have been 315 pollutants found in America’s tap water since 2004, and over half of these pollutants are completely unregulated and can legally exist in any amount.

At the current levels of contamination, the public is starting to question the quality of tap water and wonders if it is safe enough to drink. Based on these facts, it’s no wonder that the demand for Alkaline Kangen Water® is constantly increasing.

Reference – EWG

Bottled water

Bottled water

Bottled water is not necessarily healthier than tap water and yet it costs much more! Although associated with healthy water, bottled water is not guaranteed to be any healthier than tap water. Often the only difference is the added minerals which have no proven health benefits.

A four-year study by the Natural Resources Defense Council shows that 1/3 of the bottled water tested contains levels of contamination which exceed allowable limits. Bottled water can also be slightly acidic, which may affect your body’s pH balance. Finally, the environmental impact caused by the production and disposal of plastic bottles is harmful to our ecosystem.

Reference – NRDC | Contaminants Found in Bottled Water

Reverse osmosis water

Reverse osmosis water

Reverse Osmosis is a filtering process which may be effective in areas that do not receive municipally treated water and is commonly used in bottled water facilities. The problem with this process is that dangerous chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, and chlorine are molecularly smaller than water and can pass freely through the filter. Reverse osmosis removes healthy, naturally occurring water minerals. These minerals not only provide good taste, they also serve a vital function in the body’s system. When stripped of these minerals, water can be unhealthy. Also, 2-3 gallons of water are wasted for every gallon of purified water produced.
