From Dr Young: Like the earth on which we live, our bodies are 70% water. Similarly, the pH of our body fluids is critical. Our blood has to maintain a pH of 7.365. If that pH was slightly altered to just 7, meaning it had became more a little more acidic, you would be comatose and die from poisoning by your own blood. How do we become acidic? Much of our modern diet is acid forming. And most of our body functions also produce acidic waste. Those that don't are working to eliminate those acid byproducts. So if we're over acidic then our body becomes over-worked ad it tries to get rid of the acid. This is why alkaline water from a water ionzer is so important. It helps your body maintain the proper balance and takes stress off your system. Stress that results in aging and weight gain. Using a quality water machine has many benefits. Water ionizers can change the pH of your water, how acid or alkaline it is. Water machines can also structure your water, creating smaller molecule clusters, making it easier for your body to hydrate. Ionizers also alter the Oxidation Reduction Potential of alkaline water, essentially making it more energetic for you body's use. The benefits that come when you drink the alkaline water from an ionizer, help your body rid itself of acids, in the form of fats and toxins, that cause aging. In these ways, a quality water ionizer is one of the best investments you can make for your health.
