There are two different kinds of alkaline water. There is bad alkaline (chemical additive) and good alkaline (electrical restructuring of molecules).
Or you can also say there is a difference between alkaline water and alkaLIZED, or also known as Electrolyzed Reduced Water or H2 Water among other names.
For example, “bad alkaline” can be found in bottled alkaline waters which are an imitation or counterfeit of good alkaline or alkaLIZED water. In most of the bottled alkaline waters you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate” which is just baking soda. water alkalizer
Look at the ingredients of Essentia 9.5 bottled alkaline water for example, and you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate”.
Then go read the directions on your baking soda bag or container and you’ll see warnings that if you ingest too much it can build up in your system and cause health problems. And it usually describes the type of health problems that can occur if you ingest too much baking soda.
Read the directions on your baking soda container to see the warning to not ingest too much.
Bottled alkaline water can mess with your stomach acid since the baking soda or sodium bicarbonate that is in the water is an antacid.
But there is a difference between “alkaline” and “alkaLIZED” or a difference between bad alkaline and good alkaline.
Bottled “alkaline” waters can cause an imbalance in your body because the chemical additive(s) or inorganic mineral(s) can build up in your body. This possible build up of inorganic minerals can cause an imbalance and therefore this water can make you too alkaline, again due to the possible build up of inorganic minerals. Our bodies treat these chemical additives or inorganic minerals as toxins and too many toxins can cause an imbalance to the health processes of our bodies.
Whereas alkaLIZED water, which has been restructured on a molecular level with electricity does not cause an imbalance in your body because there is no addition of chemicals or inorganic minerals. Instead alkaLIZED water balances out your body by alkalizing your body by helping to carry out acidic wastes or toxins from within your cells. Again, alkaLIZED water doesn’t have anything added to it, but rather has had its molecular structure reorganized with electricity causing the drinking water to become high alkaline or reach a high alkaline pH due to the H2O molecule being split into H2 and -OH and the positively charged acidic hydrogen ions being pulled out of the drinking water. This water has been changed with electricity.
This restructuring of the water causes the molecules within the water to be able to penetrate deep within your cells and thus carry or flush out acidic wastes or toxins. This detoxifying process is what alkalizes your body. Or when you think of detoxing your body, think of alkalizing your body and vice versa.
AlkaLIZED water is living water because of its extraordinary properties and which properties do not last more than a few days. This water needs to be drank fresh in order to enjoy its benefits. Therefore this water cannot be bottled and sold in stores because the properties of the water would be gone before this water even got to the store shelf. This water is found high up in the mountains from glacial melt water, a few rare springs around the world such in Lourdes, France, or can be made in the home with a water ionizer that has the Gold Seal Certification from the Water Quality Association.
The reason I bring up the Gold Seal Certification from the WQA is because just as bottled alkaline water is the imitation or counterfeit to alkaLIZED water, there are also imitation or counterfeit ionizers that simply add in an inorganic mineral into the water to artificially raise the pH the same as these bottled alkaline waters artificially raise the pH by adding baking soda into the water.
The bottled alkaline waters you see in the store are the imitations of alkaLIZED water.
Beware of imitation machines or imitation water. For example there is a difference between “alkaline” and “alkaLIZED”.
Those “alkaline” waters you see in the health food store simply have an inorganic mineral added to the water such as “sodium bicarbonate” which is baking soda. Look at the ingredients of Essentia 9.5 bottled alkaline water and you’ll see the first ingredient after water is “sodium bicarbonate”.
Then go read the directions on your baking soda bag or box and you’ll see warnings that if you ingest too much it can build up in your system and cause health problems.
