How does a water ionizer work?
Water ionizers convert regular tap water into ionized alkaline water with acid-fighting alkalinity and antioxidant potential using electromagnetic. Alkaline minerals and carbonate – dissolved CO2 – make up plain water. A water ionizer separates carbonate from alkaline minerals in tap water. Separate streams of water release the alkaline minerals and the acidic carbonate. A water ionizer works by separating the alkaline elements in tap water from the acidic elements, allowing you to benefit from the natural acid-fighting alkalinity of alkaline minerals like calcium and magnesium in your water. Once free of carbonate, these alkaline minerals gain antioxidant properties as well as acid-fighting alkalinity. This article explains the operation and importance of a water ionizer for your home.
How does it work?
Water flows between charged plates within a water ionizer, which are separated by a unique membrane known as an Ion-Permeable Membrane. Ions - energetically charged atoms and molecules – can travel through that barrier. It prevents the passage of energetically neutral atoms and molecules. Because water molecules have no energy charge, they do not flow through the barrier. Because both alkaline mineral ions and carbonate ions in water have energy charges, they are permitted to pass through. The alkaline minerals are separated from the acidic carbonate in this way.
The positive energy charge of alkaline minerals in water gives them positively charged ions.
Similarly, the negatively charged ions of acidic carbonate in water have a negative electrical charge.
A water ionizer separates such ions using electromagnetically charged plates. The negative plates are attracted to the positively charged alkaline mineral ions. The positively charged plates attract the acidic carbonate. Both positively charged alkaline mineral ions and negatively charged carbonate ions pass through the ion-permeable membrane, which splits these ions into two chambers.
When the ions in both chambers are separated, they react with the water in each chamber to produce alkaline and acidic fluids. Out of the water ionizer, each kind of water is released in its own stream. Alkaline minerals are released as alkaline mineral water into the alkaline stream. As a carbonic acid solution, the acidic carbonate is released into the acidic water stream. Carbonic acid is formed when CO2 is dissolved with water.
Importance of balancing pH
pH is very sensitive to all living things, including humans. The pH of blood plasma and other bodily fluids that surround cells ranges from 7.2 to 7.45.
A pH of 6.9 in the blood might cause coma and death. That is why the pH balancing system takes precedence over all other body systems. To maintain appropriate fluid buffers of alkalinity to balance the 'acid tide' we impose upon ourselves through diet and stress, your body will gladly slow down digestion, change temperature, rob your bones of calcium and your heart of magnesium, as well as deny your pancreas.
Your body, on the other hand, has a number of unique systems that help to stabilize these fluids so that cells are not subjected to significant pH variations.
Buffers are substances that function as pH-stabilizing processes.
When the concentration of ions in solution begins to rise, buffers have the ability to bind them and remove them from the solution. Buffers, on the other hand, can release ions as their concentration begins to diminish, reducing pH swings. Because many metabolic events in living beings either release or consume ions, this is an important function.
Imagine how much tension your body will be relieved if its major safety mechanism of pH balance can be turned off from constant high alert because you are alkalizing your body by lowering stress, eating better foods, avoiding hazardous chemicals, and drinking enough clean, nutritious water.
What about tap water?
On a pH scale of 0 to 14, regular tap water measures about neutral 7, or slightly on either side; acid in rainfall, alkaline in chemically altered municipal supplies or in locations with harder water.
The redox (oxidation reduction potential) of this water is +400 to +500 mV, which may be evaluated with a pH or ORP meter. It is more likely to acquire electrons and oxidize other molecules since it has a positive redox potential, and subsequently deprive your body of electrons in the form of energy.
Ionized Ions Reduced The redox potential of water, on the other hand, ranges from -250 to -900 mV. This indicates it has a significant number of electrons available to contribute to active oxygen, which steals electrons. It's 'Live Water,' with an atomic structure comparable to the water the Hunzakuts drink directly from glacier streams high in the Himalayas.
