Water Ionizers: Fact Or Fiction?

Growing concerns about clean drinking water have led many people to invest in water filtration devices. Are water ionizers the next best thing?
By: H2O Report
Dec. 23, 2008 - PRLog -- Recent global water contamination issues coupled with mistrust in bottled water has contributed to making water a multi-billion dollar industry. What if you had a water filter at home that not only resolved your concerns about purity issues, but also managed to improve your health? In the last 10 years, the North American market has been introduced to a Japanese technology known as the water ionizer. According to the manufacturers, it is a filter plugged into an outlet and attached to the sink. The water is electrolyzed, effectively splitting the water molecule so that you are left with alkaline water coming out of the hose and acidic water through another.

. The benefits of alkaline water? There are plenty of claims, some of them include:

•   It slows down the aging process.
•   Causes healthy weight loss.
•   It boosts the body’s immunity against disease.
•   Increases absorption of important vitamins and minerals.

The H2O report was recently approached by North American dealers of the Enagic LeveLuk SD501. Enagic is a Japanese trademarked company selling several different machines that vary in price. They call the water their machines produce “Kangen” water.
The SD501 is their higher end product, costing $3,980.00 USD ($4,000 CAD).

The claims are that different levels of pH water offer new benefits. The strong alkaline water at pH 11.5 can be used as a cleaning product. Claims have been made that it is incorporated into some washing machines in Japan to avoid using detergent — these claims could not be confirmed. The acidic water, at a pH of 4.5 is said to be good for skin care. The highly acidic water, at pH 2.5 is offered as an alternative to disinfecting products and pesticides.

But is this just another case of an exotic far away locale (Japan), being used for a faulty science marketing gimmick? The H2O Report hears from believers and skeptics in the article “Water ionizers: fact or fiction?”
