Up till recently most of the systems on the market used to produce alkaline ionised water were electrolytic systems.
In recent years there has been an increasing number of mineral based water ionising systems available. They have the advantage of being less expensive, portable and give the water good energy.
These mineral based systems use natural minerals which when in contact with water make it alkaline and also produce hydrogen. They include minerals with more ionising effect than hydrogen such as magnesium (Mg) calcium (Ca) and lithium (Li). Calcium and Lithium are very good at making water with a good structure but unfortunately react too violently with water. On the other hand Magnesium releases electrons as it dissolves in water as shown:
Mg + 2 H20 -> Mg2+ + 2OH- + H2 (H- + H- ->H2)
Magnesium, unfortunately, has several shortcomings. It is relatively poor at making water
structure condensed compared to that of calcium and its effect on water makes it bitter unlike calcium. Its efficiency to react with water for producing alkaline ionised water and hydrogen gradually reduces. In order to make up for these weak points, magnesium’s physical properties have been improved by making special alloys which sustain for a long time its ability to diffuse in water and produce hydrogen with alkaline water.
Other ways can be combined as well: ceramics based on calcium, special minerals which stabilize active hydrogen, natural rocks which make water structure compact as well as increasing water’s solvency, and minerals which can bring about catalytic action. Doing this makes water abundant with hexagonal water (smaller clusters of molecules), supplements the taste, maintains the eliminating power against reactive oxygen species for a long time, and puts in good energy.
Mineral alkaline reduced water has the weakness of needing an occasional acid-cleansing because its hydrogen-producing power decreases after a while, but its simplicity and portability makes it an alternative to systems producing electrolyzed water. It also has the advantage of containing very good energy in comparison to electrolyzed alkaline water. Many of the mineral based systems combine various minerals including natural minerals such as tourmaline and jade which are reputed to give far infrared energy which has known therapeutic benefits.
Interestingly Professor Won H Kim has stated that natural mineral alkaline ionised water showed anti-cancer effects as well as suppressive power against metastasis during animal experiments using mice. Furthermore, it revealed an ability to eliminate active oxygen within cells along with increasing immune functions. More importantly, levels of blood sugar, triglycerides, and cholesterol were lowered in mice with diabetes and obesity; possibilities were seen for treatments of these diseases or ensuing complications.
Mineral based systems are now used in a wide number of applications. Because of no requirement to use electricity, they are used in portable personal ionisers, so that people can enjoy the benefits of ionised water wherever they are. They are also used in undersink filters, in jug filter cartridges and in cartridges which can be used after filtration systems and particularly reverse osmosis systems where they can help to overcome the principal limitation of reverse osmosis water, in that they put back into the water beneficial minerals.
Natural drinking water "calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium" is the general name for all calcium atom, a magnesium atom, a potassium atom, However, here we mean "calcium, magnesium, potassium, sodium" which means calcium element, potassium element, sodium element, rather than atom or molecular. So it can be available and balance in the drinking water.
