Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body. Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9. Your RO and package drinking water has a pH of 3 to 5.
The body creates fat cells in order to neutralize the acidity. Drinking alkaline water will help neutralize those acids and reduce fat storage. Thus, another secret to weight loss is proper hydration.
Alkaline water, made using electrolysis, has a smaller water cluster size that penetrates into our cells much faster, hydrating us and absorbing essential nutrients from within. In addition, it carries the nutrients and oxygen to our cells more efficiently and removes acidic cellular waste with greater effectiveness. Maintaining this level of hydration and a healthy pH means glowing skin and an increase in the elasticity of your skin which is beneficial in the long run.
Drinking alkaline water can help to neutralize acid found inside the bloodstream. Neutralizing the acid can result in increased oxygen levels, improve your energy and ultimately boost your metabolism

Alkaline Ionized water helps promote osteogenesis
Metabolic disorder of calcium is considered to be one of the causes of osteoporosis that has an increasing number of cases these days. Therefore we conducted a series of tests by feeding rats with different amounts of calcium and gave them tap water, calcium lactate solution and alkaline ionized water at leisure. According to examination of their bone and blood composition, osteogenesis rate was found in the ascending order of tap water, calcium lactate solution, and alkaline ionized water.
Especially under the condition of low calcium levels in the feed, alkaline ionized water was considered to great effects on improved osteogenesis.

Alkaline ionized water and clean water was given to 163 volunteers who suffered from abdominal discomfort at the amount of 500ml per day for four weeks.
Overall rate of improvement was significantly higher for those who were given alkaline ionized water.
As a result of comparative double blind clinical tests, alkaline ionized water was proved to be effective against constipation, and most importantly its’ safety was verified. It is considered a departure for using medication where side effects are unavoidable to a certain extent.
The effectiveness of alkaline ionized water is very high at 80.5%.
“Many different forms of arthritis and gout are the result of acid accumulation in the joints. Heavy people add more pressure on their joints, thus speeding up wear and tear; however, a young person seems to do fine even if he is heavy. It is the accumulated acid that damages cartilages and irritates the joints. Unfortunately, the joints are where the blood cannot carry out wastes easily.
Gout is the accumulation of uric acid in the joints. According to Webster, gout is a disease resulting from a disturbance of metabolism, characterized by an excess of uric acid in the blood and deposits of uric acid salts in the tissues around the joints, especially of the feet and hands: it causes swelling and severe pain, especially in the big toe.
In today’s medicine, there is no effective treatment for these types of degenerative diseases. Because it is painful, one instinctively takes pain killers; however, aspirin types are acidic and they can further irritate the joints.
The sooner we accept the fact that these diseases are the result of too much acidic waste, the sooner we will find the cure for these problems.” Page 58 of Dr. Sang Whang’s book “Reverse Aging”.
Alkaline Water Dissolves More Uric Acid
Since uric acid is one of the primary contributing factors to the painful symptoms experienced by gout sufferers. Therefore, controlling the production of this substance is key to getting symptoms under control. One of the techniques that are now being used to accomplish this is by changing the pH level of the body in order to manipulate its uric acid production.
pH stands for the power of hydrogen and refers to the acidity level in the body. That is, when the pH levels of the body are raised, it becomes more alkaline, while lowering pH levels makes the body more acidic.
Therefore, by raising the pH levels in your body, you are effectively putting into practice a natural gout treatment. The theory behind this is that by making the body more alkaline, the uric acid levels will be reduced.
This is because uric acid can be diluted by drinking water, and the more alkaline the body is, the more water-soluble uric acid becomes. And so, the higher the ratio of alkaline to acid in the body, that is, the higher the pH level of the body (or the number on the pH scale) the more alkaline your body will be, and the more uric acid will be dissolved into the water you drink.
If the uric acid level of the body is kept below a certain level (6.0mg/dL for men and slightly less than that for women) then gout crystal formation will be much less likely to occur.In order to make your body more alkaline, the most commonly recommended technique is to drink alkaline (ionized) water.This is water that has additional OH oxygen as opposed to O2. You can drink it or cook with it.
The first clinical test conducted in Korea shows that water can control diseases!
3 December 2003: The Natural Medicine Research Institute of Hansuh University had invited 15 patients suffering from diabetes and started a clinical test for them.
The scientists divided the patients into two different groups; they stopped insulin treatment completely for the first group of the patients, and they had them drink the Ionized Water (ARW) instead, and the other group of diabetics had been allowed to continue their hospital treatment as well with receiving insulin as usual.
The blood glucose levels have been lowered on the whole, and the blood glucose levels, which had shown wide variations daily before were being stabilized. But the blood glucose levels for those who had not taken the Ionized Water (ARW) but continued receiving insulin everyday under the hospitalized state continued to show wide variations with their blood glucose level.
7 January 2004: Comparison of blood glucose levels before and after experiment conducted. 5 litters ARW/day administered for the 2nd group of patients.
A significant decrease of blood glucose levels for all patients on AKW. Some examples are:
1. Patient Lee, 14 years old, blood glucose level: 250 After drinking the Reduced Water for 36 days: blood glucose level: 204
2. Patient Hwang, 17 years old, blood glucose level: 254 After drinking the Reduced Water for 36 days: blood glucose level:144
3. Patient Lee2, 9 years old, blood glucose level: 324 After drinking the Reduced Water for 36 days: blood glucose level: 210
4. Patient Lee3: 20 years old, blood glucose level: 400 After drinking the Reduced Water for 36 days: blood glucose level: 168
The experiments indicated that the effectiveness of Ionized Water (ARW) was better than insulin.

“When I was serving in the Fire Insurance Association, I used to examine many diabetic patients. Besides treating them with drugs, I provided them with ionized water. After drinking ionized water for one month, 15 diabetic patients were selected and sent to Tokyo University for further test and observations.
Initially, the more serious patients were a bit apprehensive about the treatment. When the ionized water was consumed for some time, the sugar in the blood and urine ranged from a ratio of 300 mg/l to 2 mg/ dc. There was a time where the patient had undergone 5 to 6 blood tests a day and detected to be within normal range. Results also showed that even 1 1/2 hour after meals, the blood sugar and urine ratio was 100 mg/dc 0 mg/dc. The sugar in the urine has completely disappeared.”
NOTE: More Americans than ever before are suffering from diabetes, with the number of new cases averaging almost 800,000 each year. The disease has steadily increased in the United States since 1980, and in 1998, 16 million Americans were diagnosed with diabetes (10. million diagnosed, 5.4 million undiagnosed) Diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States, and more than 193,000 died from the disease and its related complication in 1996. The greatest increase-76 percent occurred in people age 30 to 30.

“Due to a higher standard of living, our eating habits have changed. We consume too much proteins, fats and sugar. The excess fats and carbohydrates are in the body as fats. In the present lifestyles, Americans are more extravagant a food compared to the Japanese. Due to this excessive intake obesity is a significant problem. Normally, one out of five males and one out of four females are obese.
The degree of “burn-out” in food intake largely depends on the amount on intake of vitamins and minerals. When excessive intake of proteins, carbohydrates and fats occurs, the requirement for vitamins and minerals increases. However, there is not much research carried out pertaining to the importance of vitamins and minerals.
Nowadays, many people suffer from acidification that leads to diabetes, heart diseases, cancer, liver and kidney diseases. If our food intake can be completely burned off, then there is no deposition of fats. Obviously, there will be no acidification problem and hence there should not be any sign of obesity.
The ionized water contains an abundance of ionic calcium. This ionic calcium helps in the “burn-off” process. By drinking ionized water, it provides sufficient minerals for our body. As a result, we do not need to watch our diet to stay slim.
Hence, ionized water is a savior for those differing from obesity and many adult diseases, providing good assistance in enhancing hood health.”

“Too many fats in the diets, which lead to the deposition of cholesterol on the blood vessels, which in turn constrict the blood flow, cause most illnesses such as high blood pressure. In accordance with the theory of Professor Gato of Kyushu University on Vitamin K (because vitamin K enables the blood calcium to increase),or the consumption of more antioxidant water, the effectiveness of the increase in the calcium in high blood pressure is most significant.
The consumption of alkaline antioxidant water for a period of 2 to 3 months, I have observed the blood pressure slowly drop, due to the water’s solvent ability, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels.”
“For over 10 years of my experience, my concept toward minerals, especially pertaining to ionic calcium in high blood pressure and other diseases is most significant. In accordance to the theory of medical Professor Gato of Kyushu University on Vitamin K (because vitamin K enables the blood calcium to increase), or the consumption of more ionized water, the effectiveness of the increase in the calcium in high blood pressure is most significant.
Too many fats in the diets, which lead to the deposition of cholesterol on the blood vessels, which in turn constrict the blood flow, cause most illnesses such as high blood pressure. By drinking ionized water for a period of 2 to 3 months, the blood pressure should slowly drop, because the ionized water is a good solvent, which dissolves the cholesterol in the blood vessels.”
Korean Scientific Reports on the Effects of Ionized Water
After injecting malignant skin cancer cells into cancer-free laboratory mice, they supplied the mice with Alkaline Reduced Water, and compared the size of the tumour after a lapse of 20 days.
The results showed the mice, which were supplied with the Ionized Water (ARW) showed the growing speed of the tumour and tumour sizes had been notably reduced as compared to those that had not taken ARW.

His revolutionary “Shinya Method” has become widely used in colonoscopy procedures worldwide.
“It is widely recognized in the medical profession that a healthy and clean colon is one of the most important precursors to good health and that the great majority of body ailments and diseases originate in an acidic and dirty colon. Water is essential for your health. Drinking “good water;” especially hard water which has much calcium and magnesium keeps your body at an optimal alkaline PH.”

“In my opinion, the wonder of ionized water is the ability neutralizes toxins, but it is not a medicine. The difference is that the medicine can only apply to each and individual case. Whereas the ionized water can be consumed generally and it’s neutralizing power is something which is very much unexpected. Now, in brief, let me introduce to you a heart disease case and how it was cured. The patient was a 35 years old male suffering from vascular heart disease. For 5 years, his sickness deteriorated. He was in the Setagays Government Hospital for treatment.
During those 5 years, he had been in and out of the hospital 5 to 6 times. He had undergone high tech examinations such as angiogram by injecting VINYL via the vein into the heart. He consulted and sought treatment from many good doctors where later he underwent a major surgical operation. Upon his discharge from the hospital, he quit his job to convalesce. However, each time when his illness relapsed, the attack seemed to be even more severe. Last year, in August, his relatives were in despair and expected he would not live much longer. It so happened at that time that the victim’s relative came across ionized water processor. His illness responded well and he is now on the road to recovery.”
Note: In the United States, cardiovascular diseases account for more than one-half of the approximate 2 million deaths occurring each year. It is estimated that optimal conditioning of drinking water could reduce this cardiovascular disease mortality rate by as much as 15 percent in the United States”

“The stomach is readily upset both by diseases affecting the stomach and by other general illnesses. In addition, any nervous tension or anxiety frequently causes gastric upset, vague symptoms when they are under some strain.
The important role of ionized water in our stomach is to neutralize the secretion and strengthen it s functions. Usually, after consuming the ionized water for 1 to 3 minutes, the gastric juice increase to 1 1/2 times. For those suffering from hyperchlorhydria or achlorhydria (low in gastric juice) the presence of ionized water will stimulate the stomach cells to secrete more gastric juice. This in turn enhances digestion and absorption of minerals.
However, on the other hand, those with hyperchlorhydria (high in gastric juice), the ionized water neutralizes the excessive gastric juice. Hence, it does not create any adverse reaction.
According to the medical lecturer form Maeba University, the pH of the gastric secretion will still remain normal when ionized water is consumed. This proves that the ability of the ionized water is able to neutralize as well as to stimulate the secretion.”

Dr Kerijiroo explains that for severe kidney failure, water intake has to be restricted. However whereas ordinary tap water “contains phosphate, calcium carbonate and the acidic ions…. [that] tend to reduce the efficiency of the calcium ions….” he feels that in controlled amounts, Alkaline Ionic water will “strengthen the heart and increase urination.”
He goes on to claim that over the next six to twelve months, the patient should maintain an alkaline diet (reduced animal protein) and continue drinking the Alkaline Ionic water to reduce the amounts of urea and uric acid in the blood. He also feels that, through his clinical experience that patients undergoing kidney dialysis should also drink Alkaline Ionic water as well as those patients with kidney disease who do not respond to drugs.
