This is part of my frequently asked questions section regarding ionization and ionized water. Since this particular FAQ was quite lengthy, I moved it to it's own page. You may access many more FAQ's about ionized water here
Why should I drink Ionized Water? If you've found your way to this page, it is probably because you are looking into different water filtration options for use in your home or office. You may be wondering if ionized water is really better and why. This information is provided courtesy of Ira Marxe at Good Health Supplements.
According to Ira, there are three main benefits to Ionized Water....
First and foremost, it is a powerful antioxidant. People spend hundreds of dollars a month purchasing antioxidants because they are anti-diseases, anti-aging, anti-cancer, which they accomplish through neutralizing free radicals. Free Radical damage causes us to age and causes disease.
Since Ionized Water is a liquid antioxidant, it is easily absorbed into the body which makes it much more effective and a powerful antioxidant.
Once the Ionized Antioxidant in the form of Hydroxyl Ions (oxygen molecule with an extra electron) donates its extra electrons to free radicals (oxygen molecule that is missing one electron) you are left with lots of oxygen.
Ionized Water gives you energy by providing your body with lots of oxygen! This is one of the most incredible aspects of Ionized Water!
Secondly, Ionized Water Balances body pH because it is very alkaline.
This is important because the typical diet today is often extremely acidic. Soft drinks, fast foods & processed foods deposit acid waste in our bodies that builds up over time and create an ideal environment for diseases of all kinds to thrive. Look at any cancer patient for instance and their bodies are invariably acidic to some degree. This is true, of course, even with children.
Chronic soft drink consumers such as children put themselves in grave danger by allowing their bodies to build up acid waste. Many end up with serious diseases at a very young age.
Maintaining an alkaline pH helps us to maintain an environment in our bodies that is NOT conducive to disease.
It may take years depending on how acidic your body is, but Ionized Water, because of its alkaline properties, will flush acid waste from our bodies. more on ph balance
Thirdly, Ionized Water has a different molecular cluster size. It contains only five to six water molecules instead of the ten to fifteen that conventional water molecule clusters have.
Once ionized, water changes from an irregular shape that is 10-15 molecules to a hexagonal regular shape that is half the size. This smaller or "reduced" water is much more hydrating than conventional water.
There are two consequences of this change:
1. Ionized Water is much more hydrating than conventional water
2. Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying.
The detoxification properties of Ionized Water are powerful and astounding. They simply can not be ignored.
A Water Ionizer has different levels of intensity because the average person cannot start out drinking strongly ionized Water. This is particularly true of the elderly, who need to start out at the lowest level and work their way up slowly.
People who have spent a lifetime building up acid waste in their bodies will suffer headaches and diarrhea if they drink too much too soon. more on detoxing safely

Health Benefits Disclaimer: There are those who totally debunk the idea that ionized water has any benefit over even regular tap water. You need to carefully examine all the evidence but, in the end, what convinced me that my body likes alkaline water was the way I felt when I drank it.
