You may be wondering if you should “take the plunge” and invest in an alkaline water machine, or buy bottled alkaline water to try it out first. The fact is, bottled alkaline water and ionized alkaline water from a water ionizer aren’t the same things. Ionized alkaline water from an alkaline water machine has acid neutralizing ability and antioxidant potential that bottled water doesn’t. Antioxidant Ionized alkaline water can’t be bottled, because it doesn’t keep in plastic bottles. It loses its antioxidant potential (ORP) within a short period, often within 24 hours.
Alkaline Water Machine vs Bottled Alkaline Water | pH and ORP
When you buy alkaline water in a bottle, do you really know what you’re getting? Keep in mind that any water with a pH of over 7 can be labeled as alkaline water. This means that bottled water companies can legally filter and bottle tap water with a pH of over seven, and sell it to you at as alkaline water!
FACT: Nearly all bottled alkaline water is no better than ordinary hard tap water, you are better off filtering your tap water and drinking it rather than spending $2 – $3 a bottle for bottled alkaline water.
An alkaline water machine makes antioxidant ionized alkaline water, which is different from alkaline bottled water or tap water. Alkaline water from a bottle or the tap gets its alkaline pH from the mineral carbonates in the water. These mineral carbonates are good for you, but they lack ionized alkaline water’s acid-neutralizing ability.
World-renowned life extension scientist Ray Kurzweil says: “The most important feature of alkaline water produced by a water alkalizer is its oxidation reduction potential (ORP)” The antioxidant potential is the key benefit of alkaline water“
Mineral Hydrates – Why Ionized alkaline water has acid neutralizing ability, and other waters don’t
Ionized alkaline water is made in a two-step process:
Step 1) Tap water contains dissolved compounds called mineral carbonates. An alkaline water machine splits these minerals carbonates in half. The minerals and the carbonates end up in separate compartments (acid and alkaline) in the water ionizer.
Step 2) The alkaline mineral ions in the alkaline compartment combine with water molecules in a chemical process called hydrolysis, which produces mineral hydrate rich ionized alkaline water.
Hydrolysis explained: Alkaline minerals like calcium and magnesium take hydroxyl ions from water molecules. Chemists refer to minerals combined with hydroxyl ions from water as mineral hydrates.
Mineral hydrates give ionized alkaline water from an alkaline water machine acid-neutralizing ability. But you can’t get mineral hydrate rich ionized alkaline water in a bottle because they don’t keep in bottles! Mineral hydrates are highly reactive, they are degraded by sunlight, heat, and even the air itself. Mineral hydrates can actually pull air and CO2 molecules through the plastic walls of a bottle! Because of this, if you put it in a plastic bottle, ionized alkaline water quickly loses its acid-neutralizing ability.
Alkaline Water Ionizers save you money over bottled water
Consider the fact that you will probably drink water every day for the rest of your life. Bottled water is expensive, even though you never see a big bill, it adds up! Especially if you choose to drink alkaline water for health.
Bottled alkaline waters typically cost $1.50 for a 500ml bottle. If you drank just one bottle per day, that’s $45.00 a month! And the fact is, you need to drink a lot more water than 500 mL, health experts recommend that you drink 2 liters (2000 mL) every day. If you drank 2 liters of alkaline water per day, you could end up spending $180.00 a month! That works out to $2,160.00 per year per person if you want to drink alkaline water for health. So a family of four would spend
$8640.00 per year!
A water ionizer can be financed for about $50 a month, and once you pay it off, it’s yours. You can own a high-quality water ionizer for less than you’d pay for three months of alkaline water if your family drank the recommended 2 liters of water per day.
