What are pH and Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)? They are measurements of some of the most important properties of drinking water. Learn about how pH and ORP influence the quality of water, and what kind of water a water ionizer makes.
The tissues and tissues of the body have varied pH levels, some are alkaline, and others are acidic. Some studies point to a link between acidity in the body and health problems. Learn about how acidity may affect the body.
Alkaline water is relatively new to the US; most of the research done on alkaline water benefits has been done in Japan. Learn about some of the most promising research, what it reveals, and what remains to be studied.
Bottled water can cost up to 1900% more than tap water and may actually be nothing more than filtered tap water! One study done by the Environmental Working Group found toxins in 10 popular brands of bottled water.
Learn about the three-step process that LIFE Ionizers uses to filter and ionize water. To make sure the water you get is as clean as possible; every LIFE Ionizer includes a free pre-filter which is configured based on the toxins we find in our evaluation of your local water quality report.
Proper hydration is essential for good health. Get the facts on hydration including how much you should drink. Athletes benefit from proper hydration as well. Studies on hydration have shown that as little as 2% dehydration impairs athletic performance.
Acidic water has a pH of below 7. Acidic water is used externally, for hair and skin rather than consumed. Strong acidic water can be used to sanitize kitchen counters, cutting boards, and other surfaces.
Alkaline water has been consumed in Asia for decades to improve health. Discover the facts about alkaline water based on the latest research, and learn what the Mayo Clinic has to say about it.
Ionized water contains minerals that have either gained or lost electrons. There are two kinds of ionized water; ionized alkaline water and ionized acidic water. De-ionized water has no minerals in it, and it can't be ionized. De-ionized water is not found in nature, it is made using distillation or reverse osmosis.
