There are two different kinds of alkaline water. There is bad alkaline (chemical additive) and good alkaline (electrical restructuring of molecules).
Or you can also say there is a difference between alkaline water and alkaLIZED, or also known as Electrolyzed Reduced Water or H2 Water among other names.
For example, “bad alkaline” can be found in bottled alkaline waters which are an imitation or counterfeit of good alkaline or alkaLIZED water. In most of the bottled alkaline waters you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate” which is just baking soda.
Look at the elements of Essentia 9.5 bottled alkaline water for example, and you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate”.
Then go read the directions on your baking soda bag or container and you’ll see warnings that if you ingest too much it can build up in your system and cause health problems. And it usually describes the kind of health problems that can occur if you ingest too much baking soda.
Read the directions on your baking soda container to see the warning to not ingest too much.
Bottled alkaline water can mess with your stomach acid since the baking soda or sodium bicarbonate that is in the water is an antacid.
But there is a difference between “alkaline” and “alkaLIZED” or a difference between bad alkaline and good alkaline.
Bottled “alkaline” waters can cause an imbalance in your body because the chemical additive(s) or inorganic mineral(s) can build up in your body. This possible build up of inorganic minerals can cause an imbalance and consequently this water can make you too alkaline, again due to the possible build up of inorganic minerals. Our bodies treat these chemical additives or inorganic minerals as toxins and too many toxins can cause an imbalance to the health processes of our bodies.
while alkaLIZED water, which has been restructured on a molecular level with electricity does not cause an imbalance in your body because there is no addition of chemicals or inorganic minerals. Instead alkaLIZED water balances out your body by alkalizing your body by helping to carry out acidic wastes or toxins from within your cells. Again, alkaLIZED water doesn’t have anything additional to it, but rather has had its molecular structure reorganized with electricity causing the drinking water to become high alkaline or reach a high alkaline pH due to the H2O molecule being divided into H2 and -OH and the positively charged acidic hydrogen ions being pulled out of the drinking water. This water has been changed with electricity.
This restructuring of the water causes the molecules within the water to be able to penetrate thorough within your cells and consequently carry or flush out acidic wastes or toxins. This detoxifying course of action is what alkalizes your body. Or when you think of detoxing your body, think of alkalizing your body and vice versa.
AlkaLIZED water is living water because of its extraordinary similarities and which similarities do not last more than a few days. This water needs to be drank fresh in order to enjoy its benefits. consequently this water cannot be bottled and sold in stores because the similarities of the water would be gone before this water already got to the store shelf. This water is found high up in the mountains from glacial melt water, a few scarce springs around the world such in Lourdes, France, or can be made in the home with a water ionizer that has the Gold Seal Certification from the Water Quality Association.
The reason I bring up the Gold Seal Certification from the WQA is because just as bottled alkaline water is the imitation or counterfeit to alkaLIZED water, there are also imitation or counterfeit ionizers that simply add in an inorganic mineral into the water to artificially raise the pH the same as these bottled alkaline waters artificially raise the pH by adding baking soda into the water.
The bottled alkaline waters you see in the store are the imitations of alkaLIZED water.
Beware of imitation machines or imitation water. For example there is a difference between “alkaline” and “alkaLIZED”.
Those “alkaline” waters you see in the health food store simply have an inorganic mineral additional to the water such as “sodium bicarbonate” which is baking soda. Look at the elements of Essentia 9.5 bottled alkaline water and you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate”.
Then go read the directions on your baking soda bag or box and you’ll see warnings that if you ingest too much it can build up in your system and cause health problems.
Or for those of you who are more scientific, the water that runs by a true ionizer (not imitation) is divided between alkaline (or alkaLIZED) and acidic.
I learned the good alkaline drinking water has a lesser quantity of the acidic H+, positively-charged hydrogen ion. H+ is positively charged and consequently it is acidic.
So the alkaline drinking water has a smaller amount of H+ making it alkaline on the pH extent, while on the acidic side, the acidic water has a higher concentration of H+, making this water measure acidic on the pH extent.
Again the Enagic ionizers are the only ones in the world that have the desired Gold Seal Certification from the Water Quality Association (WQA).
All of the imitation/counterfeit ionizers could not pass all the tests from the WQA and consequently none of them currently have the Gold Seal Certification. Many of these imitation companies will tell people that they are members of the WQA but being a member of the WQA is not the same thing as being awarded the Gold Seal Certification for their products.
And to help you understand the difference between bad alkaline and good alkaline refer to the comparisons below…
