Ionization is the process in which the substance is split into its constituent elements and those elements then exist in the form of ions. Water is a covalent bon between two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. Water can be ionized if it is put in the electrolysis chamber where there are positive and negative electrodes. Water splits into positive hydrogen ions and negative hydroxide ions. All the molecules in the water are not split in this process and the few that ionize gather at electrodes where they are collected.
Water with Hydroxide and Hydrogen Ions
Now we can notice that there will be two types of waters collected in this process namely the water at positive electrode containing hydroxide ions and water collected at negative electrode containing positive hydrogen ions. The water with positive hydrogen ions has acidic properties and is not fit for drinking because in this ionized water pH has reduced below 7. Our body already has acidic properties due to which we cannot drink acidic water because it will destroy metabolism and increase blood problems. While water with hydroxide ions has alkaline properties and in this ionized water pH is above 7. This means that it will neutralize free radicals in our body and make nutrients available for us at most of the times. Naturally occurring ionized water such as rainwater is also acidic because of pollution and so is our tap water due to industrial waste. But in any ionized water pH should not reduce below 7 because it would make it acidic and we do not need it for drinking at least. So we can use this acidic water for cleaning purposes because it has sterilizing properties.
Purpose of Ionized Water
Water ionizing machines create both types of water and both are important but for different purposes. However, main purpose is to create drinking water. Ionized water pH below 7 is a remedy for many problems since it acts as an antioxidant in our body and strengthens metabolism and reduces the aging process. This type of purified water can help us cure autism because one of the main reasons of autism includes excessive need of antioxidants.
