What Is Ionized Alkaline Drinking Water?

 Water has long been considered to be the key to a long life. Ponce de Leon, a Spanish explorer, began looking for the mythological “Fountain of Youth” in the 15th century. In more recent times, a Romanian scientist and Nobel Prize winner Dr. Henri Coanda became totally fascinated with the longevity of the Himalayan Hunza people who habitually live to between 120-140 years of age. The Hunza Valley located at 7,999 ft. in northern Pakistan is encircled by the Himalayan mountains which rise above 25,000 ft.

For over 60 years Dr. Coanda and his protege Dr. Patrick Flanagan have studied the Hunza people and their lifestyles. Dr. Coanda’s comprehensive study led to his conclusion that the Hunza’s drinking water had a unique construction and composition that was responsible for their noteworthy longevity. Their water source came from the high Himalayan glaciers and it definitely had a measurably different viscosity and surface tension. They found this water had a high alkaline pH and an extraordinary amount of active hydrogen (OH- ions) which is hydrogen with an extra electron. This “Hunza” water also had a high, negative Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) as well as a high colloidal mineral content.

After decades of clinical studies, medical and scientific researches, in 1965 the Japanese Government officially recognized the health and medical benefits of ionized alkalized water. In fact, ionizers manufactured by Enagic Corporation, have been granted a license as medical devices by the Japanese Ministry of Health. These Enagic water ionizers convert ordinary tap water into “Kangen Water” which is a trademark of Enagic and means “return to origin”. This amazing “Kangen Water” goes through an electrolysis process originally invented by Michael Faraday in the 1800’s. This water technology was further developed by Russian scientists in the early 20th Century then by Japanese scientists in the 1960’s and 70’s. During electrolysis the water is spaced into acidic and alkaline water. The alkaline drinking water has three measurable properties that are very similar to the water of the Himalaya glaciers: (1) it has a high alkaline pH (2) it is rich in antioxidants (active hydrogen OH-) giving this water a high negative ORP rating (3) It is high in colloidal minerals.

Alkaline antioxidant water is also restructured in such a way that the body can absorb it easier. During the process of electrolysis, the water molecules become hexagonal and micro-clustered, meaning simply that the water molecules form into littler clusters of 4-6 molecules wheras regular water forms clusters of 13-15 molecules in size . This micro-clustered water, once inside the body, basically hydrates the cells better and helps detoxifies the body better. In other words, the smaller clusters are able to carry more of the good stuff into the cells while cleansing more of the toxic waste out of the cell as well.

Dr. Hiromi Shinya, world renowned colon specialist and inventor of the colonoscopy, highly recommends “Kangen Water”. In his popular book, The Enzyme Factor, Dr.Shinya states that Kangen Water (alkaline antioxidant water) is considered the very best drinking water because of its incomparable ability of hydration, detoxification and anti-oxidation. Drinking alkaline antioxidant water solves two of the major problems that cause aging and diseases by shifting our bodies to a healthy alkaline state as well as by providing plenty of antioxidants needed to slow down the aging process itself. “Kangen Water” just could be the modern day “Fountain of Youth”.
