What is ionized water and how is it different from other types of water?
Ionized water is obtained in special devices – water ionizers, passing electrical direct current through the water. This process is called water electrolysis. In addition, water molecules decompose into hydrogen ions (H +) and hydroxyl (OH-), but salts dissolved in water – into positive metal ions (calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium) and negative chlorine, sulfur, phosphorus, etc. jonos.
Alkali metal, calcium, sodium and hydroxyl (OH-) ions are attracted to the cathode. That is – ionized alkaline (“living”) water. Acid ions – chlorine, phosphorus, sulfur and hydrogen – accumulate at the anode. That is – ionized acidic (“dead”) water. The main parameters of acidic and alkaline water – ORP and the pH of hydrogen are very different, so the body is affected by such water in different ways.
Ionized water parameters ORP and pH.
Each liquid has a positive or negative charge (potential) – oxidation-reduction potential (ORP). If this potential is negative, then there is an excess of electrons in the fluid and it is an electron donor. Electrons are motion, but motion is life. So the more negative the ORP of water, the more free electrons in it, the more “alive” it is. There is a lack of electrons at the positive charge, therefore such a liquid tries to obtain and attract the missing electrons.
The pH indicates how many hydrogen ions (H +) are in the liquid. Its rate ranges from 0 to 14 units. Neutral water has a pH of 7, which means that it contains the same amount of hydrogen ions and hydroxyl ions.
If hydroxyl alkali ions are predominant, the pH varies from 7 to 14. The higher their number, the more alkaline the liquid. When the indicator decreases from 7 to 0, the liquid becomes more acidic, i. it consists predominantly of hydrogen ions.
