Are Alkaline Water Ionizers any good?

pHion Balance  |  5 Comments

Hey everyone. So...I get a lot of questions about alkaline water ionizers...like these:

•  How do they alkalize water?

•  Are they better than using pH drops (like pHion Booster)

•  Are they worth the money?

Let me try to answer them for you...

How do they alkalize the water?

Water ionizers use electrodes to "pull" positive ions...minerals...out of the water. They then convert them to negative ions. The net result is that the relatively few positive ions in the water have been reduced to none.

Water, however, is considered an unbuffered or low ion solution to begin with. Meaning that there's not a very high
concentration of positive ions to begin with. So while you can reduce the water to an alkaline state, the water that is made is STILL weakly ionized! So, while it may be alkaline, it really doesn't do much to ADD many negative ions or alkalinity to your body.

Are they better than using pHion Booster?

Not so much. First of all, water ionizers should actually be called water alkalizers. Because they do more to alkalize your water than to ionize your water. But, as I just explained, they way they alkalize your water isn't very effective. pHion pH Booster adds or DONATES a whole lot of negative ions into your water...thus making it ion dense. This can be demonstrated in our "Alkaline and Ionic Water Video".

By adding negative ions and alkaline elements into your water, you benefit big time. You'll have better conductivity of electrical charges which will result in higher energy...plus you'll be getting a lot more alkaline minerals that will help to neutralize acids. pHion pH Booster is the only product out there that can ionize (electrify) your water (like gatorade...but without sugar and salt) AND alkalize it. We're putting together a new video that will show you how much better pHion Booster water HOLDS its pH as well. It will be out soon.

Are they worth the money?

I think not!

Here's to your wellness,

I'm in a great confusion about alkaline water & water Ionizers. I just went through few site like ionizerresearch.com & alkaline water.com then I came to know that Ionized alkaline water from Ionizers are good for health, then later i have purchased the top rated Tyents alkaline water ionizer machine, it seems to be good so far.

Drinking water is an essential part of a mans health and so your drinking water should be pure and healthy. Buy water ionozers which provide ionized water that are beneficial to human health..I prefer Tyent USA
Tyent offers the best in class water Ionizers with makes water pure and healthy.

Water ionizers do not do a good job of alkalizing your water because they do not contribute any minerals to the water.

Sir with respect, I am not knowledgeable as yourself in these matters but the way I see this is as follows;
The products (water additives) sold here are excellent as they are versatile in that you can add them to your water wherever you are, at the gym, work, holiday etc
However, the alkaline ionizers are also filtering devices also. The one, I just purchased removes fluoride and pesticides. This of course is for home use as it is not versatile like the premium additives sold here.
So in my humble opinion, I feel there is a use for both products as I certainly wish to minimise my fluoride consumption but I also need a solution when I am at work or generally away from home.
I would most welcome your thoughts on the topic.
Respectfully yours,
John Carter

I bought a water ionizer about a year ago. It seems to work fine.
