The smaller hexagonal molecular structure resulting from electrolysis is what makes Enagic water wetter than tap or bottled water. These smaller clusters of water molecules are less than half the size of those found in tap water. The smaller cluster size gives the water excellent hydrating properties, high solubility and good cellular permeability.
Water from a Water Ionizer is “micro-clustered”, meaning it is grouped together in smaller clusters of 5-6 water molecules like clusters found in natural flowing spring water, instead of the 10-13 found in bottled or tap water. This makes it “micro-clustered” so it will be more quickly and easily absorbed and will hydrate cells and tissues more effectively. The hexagonal molecular structure resulting from electrolysis is what makes ionized water “wetter” than tap or bottles water. It is up to 6 times more hydrating than typical tap water. Therefore it permeates cellular membranes quickly to provide a natural energy lift.
The last of the three main changes that occur to water during ionization is in molecular structure. This refers to the way the molecules are organized. The molecular structure has a powerful effect on water s ability to hydrate your cells and to carry energy throughout your body. Water is what chemists call a polar molecule. It has a positively-charged side and a negatively-charged side because of the way the electrons are arranged around each atom. This means that when water is placed in an electric field, the molecules must organize themselves in a very specific manner to stay balanced within the electric field. Water molecules assume a crystal-like, hexagonal geometry that can literally change the properties of the water.11 Although the organization (structure) of the molecules begins to dissipate when the water is removed from the electric field, a certain amount of structure lingers. Crystalline structure enhances the water s ability to hydrate cells, to transport nutrients, to remove waste, to support metabolic processes and to improve cellular communication. In 1986, a new theory referred to as the molecular water environment theory was proposed at a symposium on cancer. The theory stated that replenishing the crystalline (hexagonally structured) water in the human body could increase vitality, slow the aging process, and prevent disease. The theory was based on research that revealed the following: 1. a greater degree of structure in the water of an infant s body than in the water of an adult s body 2. a greater degree of structure in the water surrounding healthy DNA than cancerous DNA 3. a greater degree of structure in the water surrounding the proteins of healthy tissue than in the water surrounding the proteins of cancerous tissue. 4. the ability of structured water to improve bowel transit time and constipation in a clinical trial. 5. the ability of structured water to slow the growth of cultured cancer cells. One of the first questions people ask about the molecular structure of water is: How can a substance that is liquid have structure ? The best way to explain this is by introducing the term, coherence. In quantum physics, the term coherence is defined as a fixed phase relationship between waves or particles. For water to be coherent, molecules must move together, turning and spinning as if they were all connected like a sheet that blows in the wind. In a coherent system, things tend to stay organized for longer periods of time. In fact, quantum physicists are beginning to consider new ways of looking at life itself in terms of coherence and organization. According to quantum theory, the difference between life and death is not so much in chemistry as it is in organization and structure.15 This has huge implications when you consider that the structure of the water in your body can be correlated with sickness and aging. Liquid crystals are special phases of matter with orientational order. Unlike solid crystals, they are flexible and responsive.16 Computer display screens are liquid crystals. Many components of the human body are now considered to be liquid crystals, including collagen and cell membranes. In many ways, water and crystalline quartz are similar. Quartz crystals are used in the computer industry because they vibrate under pressure at a very precise frequency. This property allows them to carry signals with speed and precision like no other material. The molecular geometry of structured water is very similar to the molecular geometry of crystalline quartz based on the...read more
In 1994 I went to Japan with a group of doctors to study acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine. During the course of our study, we spent time in several hospitals. That s where I received my introduction to ionized water. I witnessed a man being treated for gangrene. The majority of his treatment was soaking his feet and lower legs for 30 minutes, three times a day in ionized water. He was also drinking about six quarts of alkaline, ionized water. In just three days, I watched what I considered to be a near miracle. His wounds went from foul-smelling, gangrenous sores to pink tissues that were well on their way to being healed. Japanese doctors in the hospitals we visited were also routinely using ionized water to heal diabetic ulcers, bed sores, psoriasis, and eczema. Not only were patients applying the water externally, they were drinking it for these and other conditions: arthritis, diabetes, gastritis, and blood disorders. The oriental community is well aware of these kinds of benefits which have been highlighted in several public media video documentaries now available on the internet. Ionized water (also referred to as electrolyzed water) is water that has been exposed to an electric current which separates the charged particles. During ionization, positively-charged ions are drawn to the negative electrode. Negatively-charged ions are drawn to the positive electrode. Ions with a positive charge like calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium raise the pH and produce alkaline water. Negative ions including phosphorous, chlorine, and sulfur lower the pH and produce acidic water. As I learned in Japan, both types of water are beneficial when used in specific ways. But ionization transforms the resulting water in ways that go beyond the separation of ions. There are three main changes that occur to water during the ionization process. These changes can be responsible for many health benefits when you use the water. Three main changes to ionized water 1. pH 2. Oxidation/reduction potential (ORP) 3.
