What does filtered ionized water taste like?
1. What does ionized water taste like?
Ionized alkaline water is colorless and odorless. Many tasters remark that ionized water tastes smoother than conventional water. This is because the molecule cluster size itself is smaller and shaped smoother than the traditional H20 molecule. It tastes smooth because it is smooth. Due to the micro clustering, ionized water will not bloat you the way conventional water tends to as it is immediately absorbed by the cells.
2. How much do they cost?
This is where many people get sticker shock and run away, even after I explain the benefits my wife and I have gotten from our machine. First of all, if you compare them to medical equipment, they’re not expensive at all. But I’ll explain how the expense breaks down.
The majority of the cost is in the plates. Platinum is right now selling for over 50.00 per ounce! Each plate in the water cell (which is the heart of the water ionizer) is coated with this expensive platinum. Water ionizers have between five and seven of these plates.
The second greatest cost is in the research, development and production of the machine. These are very scientifically developed and intricate machines and the researchers don’t typically receive grant money for it either. Finally, thse water ionizers are built to last decades, 20 to 30 years. So, it’s primarily a lifetime purchase. With regular maintenance, they will give you health benefits of ionized water for a very long period of time. When you break down the expense into the number of years of use, the cost is simply minimal while the price of a bottle water at the supermarket increases annually. Your cost depends on your budget, your usage, and the improvement in your health. Also, the cost of bottled water never goes away.
3. Do you have a payment plan?
Yes and no. The best way to get one of these is on your own line of credit which puts you in control of the payments. We do offer other plans which require a good down payment and monthly payments geared towards 6 monbths. I am working on another financing program as well. I strongly recommend finding the money any way you can as soon as possible as I did.
4. How much alkaline ionized water do you drink?
Personally, I began with a gallon per day and have since increased that to half my body weight in ounces. My legs were cramping at first, but that went away. My body told me to keep going. This water has actually increased my apetite but I continue to lose weight. Besides ionized water, fresh fruits and vegetables are a great additions to you diet. An advanced method of determining if you are drinking the optimum amount of ionized water is to check that you have good stools. It is essential that everyone recognize his/her own body chemistry and determine the best schedule and amounts to drink.
5. Does this really work?
The Water Ionizers have been in use worldwide for more than 40 years for home and industrial applications. In Korea, it has been approved by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. Millions are already in use in Japan in homes and hospitals. In the USA thousands of enlightened individuals have been using alkaline water ionizers for many years, but the word is really just beginning to spread quickly
6. Does ionized water have any negative effects?
Ionized water is good for the gastrointestinal system; however, follow recommendations for regular consumption of ionized water. In rare cases, drinkers may experience constipation or diarrhea for several days or several weeks after starting to drink ionized water. If you experience this reaction, reduce your drinking volume down to a half or a quarter for a period of time. When the symptoms subside, resume regular drinking of ionized water, but in smaller volumes than before. Ceasing to drink produces a negative bodily reaction, so you should continue drinking. If the symptoms do not subside, consult with a doctor or a pharmacist. Drink only the alkaline water. NEVER DRINK THE ACIDIC WATER. We have never seen a single negative effect from Ionized Water, either alkaline or acidic, as long as it is used properly.
7. Can I use my combine the effects of a water softener with my water ionizer?
Water softeners remove virtually all calcium and replace it with sodium. Our machines will concentrate the sodium instead of the calcium when doing what they do to the water. Sodium is not good for the machines, and the lack of calcium drastically reduces the benefit of the water. So, we do not recommend using our machines with these types of water softeners, nor do we recommend drinking water depleted of calcium.
8. Why would I want to drink alkaline ionized water rather than regular tap, filtered tap or bottled water?
Good question. There are five reasons why you should drink alkaline ionized water rather than regular tap or even bottled water: Ionized water facilitates the elimination of acid wastes from your body.
Ionized water performs a thorough filtration of your Tap water. Ionization splits the water into smaller clusters of 5-8 molecules thus making it easier to get the water into your cells. Ionization reduces the Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP), so that your water becomes an antioxidant. It costs less than One dollar or less per day produce all the alkaline ionized water you and your family can drink. Blood oxygen levels will rise in varying amounts with regular use of strong Ionized Water. Thereby, it increases stamina and endurance. Also, it provides muscle tissue and organs with high amounts of oxygen which the human body often lacks. Regular folks and athletes benefit greatly from ionized water.
9. Which brand/model makes the best water?
Out of the water ionizers I’ve personally tried , Iâve concluded the Genesis makes the best alkaline ionized water. In addition to the ORP [Oxidation Reduction Potential -- or Antioxidant quality of the water] and pH of the ionized water, I base a lot of my judgement of which is the best water ionizer on the type of internal cleaning the water ionizer does, the price, and the warranty.
10. Really, how much can I expect to pay for a water ionizer unit?
That question answers with another question. If you continue on like you are now, how much is it going to cost you? If you drank only 2 liters of bottled water a day (not nearly enough water), at only $.89/liter, this would equal 9.70 in bottled water per year. This is for one person and this is a low figure. Over the 10 year expected life span of an ionizer, bottled water would cost you ,497. This does not include the expense of going to get it.
11. Why should I buy a Water Ionizer?
Drink freshly ionized water for wellness benefits. Bottled water does not contain the qualities of freshly ionized water that you can produce at will in your own kitchen. Further, compared to bottled water solutions, it is both economical and environmentally acceptable. Remove the Acidic water from your life for a healthier lifestyle.
12. What is the warranty on the ionizer?
Look for ionizer companies that guarantee against all defects in workmanship and materials for at least five years for parts and labor. Look for companies that allow for units to be returned for repairs or replaced with a similar ionizer of approximately the same age and condition.
13. What is the return policy?
Look for ionizer companies that offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee policy and offer you a 30 to 60 day trial. Keep in mind that you want to use the unit for a longer time to gauge the health benefits. Many companies may request a restocking fee should you return the unit if returned in new condition. Note that the unit should not be scratched, broken or damaged in any way and returned in it’s original packaging with all parts. Many companies request that you contact them prior to returning the unit for proper credit. Communicate with your dealer should you experience any difficulty as they want you to have a pleasant and rewarding experience with your water ionizer.
14. What should I consider when starting to drink ionized water?
Start gradually with a cup of ionized water of a lower pH of about pH8 to 9.0. After about two weeks, gradually increase the volume and raise the pH according to your body-build and physical condition. At a pH level of 9.0 to 9.5, drink the ionized water as soon as possible after making it. It’s recommended that children or elderly persons should start with a lower pH and raise the pH level gradually as they get accustomed to the water. Ionized water is not recommended for infants. As with any change in lifestyle and diet, discuss your general health with your General Physician. However, may physicians are not familiar with ionized water and may even try and sway you away from it.
15. What is so unique about Water Ionizers?
The Water Ionization Filter is more than just a filter. The filter functions effectively using silver activated granulated carbon to purify incoming water, as do 99% of household filter systems. However, there are additional benefits: Primarily the health benefits are due to the alteration to the water molecules such that H20 becomes OH- and HO+ creates changes in the output alkaline water. In other words, there is a change in pH, oxygen content, and lower surface tension. Really effective water ionizers use its own microcomputer to accurately control the rate of pH and REDOX (antioxidant quality) output, unlike traditional water purifiers.
16. How do I get my ordinary tap water once it’s attached?
The water ionizer has diverter lever which directs your water flow from the tap water faucet to the Ionizer. It also has an incorporated aerator for your tap water. Thus, you can easily switch from tap to ionized depending on your household water needs.
17. When and how often should I drink alkaline ionized water?
Drink ionized water as you would eat meals. People tend to eat meals on a regular schedule so drink ionized water regularly too. Drink ionized water regularly 30 minutes to an hour before eating a meal, whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner. By doing so, you allow the ionized water to coat the intestines with a healthy dose of alkalinized water. Also, by the time you eat, your appetite will not be affected by water in your stomach. In addition, your stomach acid will not be diluted by the water. After you dinner, refrain from other food or drink. If you must have something, drink a final glass of ionized water prior to bedtime. Feel free to drink warmed ionized water in the winter.
18. How does ionized water react in the gastrointestinal track?
Ionized water does not cause any abnormal reactions in the gastrointestinal system. Itâs important to note that unhealthy water destroys “good” bacteria in the intestines. We need “good” bacteria for proper breakdown of bodily wastes. Allow for time for the body to enjoy the benefits of ionized water
19. What are some of the harmful organisms and chemicals removed from water by the most water ionizers?
Primarily, chlorine & trihalomethanes, cryptosporidium, parasites, waterborne flu virus E-coli, organic compounds, bacteria and radioactive particulates. Feel free to research any of these items to reinforce your healthy water study
20. Will you still be in business five years from now?
Ask your distributor how long they’ve been in business. You want to see longevity. You want to see how a company adapts to it’s market based on scientific research as well as the economy. If the company has good products and good marketing, they will be successful. Ask your salesperson if they’re a private or public company. If they’re a public company, research their stock history. Do the research to make an investment in your health and pocketbook. However, just about all the companies are having a hard time keeping them on the shelf.
