Water ionizer technology, relatively speaking, is still a fairly new kid on the block.Â Domestic ionizers have only really been available since the 1990â€™s, although the Japanese Government declared that water ionizers were to be classified as health-improving medical devices in 1966, with South Korea following suit a few years later.
However, the way that the benefits of ionized alkaline water are understood have changed since the earliest ionizers were manufactured.
Hydrogen, Not pH, is Key
In what resembles an about-turn from the medical establishment over recent years, hydrogen is now acknowledged as being the key element in terms of vital health benefits, rather than â€“ as was thought …
Â Â Â Â Â Â Ionized Alkaline Waterâ€¦what does it all mean?
Â Â There is much talk these days regarding ionized alkaline water and all its benefits.
We have heard that it balances your pH level, creates an alkaline environment in your system while also breaking down the water into micro-clusters and much more. Â It sounds goodâ€¦but what does all that actually mean?
I wanted to know the answer and also better understand some of those scientific terms so I did some research and this is what I learned.
