3 Reasons Why Not To Drink Alkaline Ionized Water

Do not drink alkaline ionized water

Drinking Alkaline Ionized Water Can Be Hazardous For Your Health

In recent years, there has been a rash of water alkalizing machines and marketers are advocating an alkaline water protocol which is claimed to be the basis of excellent health. This is gross misinformation and extremely dangerous. Please read this information about drinking alkaline ionized water before you invest your hard-earned money on an over-prized machine that can potentially harm you and your family.

Drinking alkaline ionized water long term can be hazardous for your health.There has been much research done to demonstrate the adverse effects of drinking alkaline ionized water[1]. Here are just 3 good reasons why.

1) Drinking alkaline water will weaken your stomach acids.

Your stomach need to be acidic to digest food especially proteins. Digestion of proteins require the action of the enzyme pepsin which can only work if there is sufficient acidity in the stomach. Moreover stomach acids inhibit the growth of bacteria and yeast.[2][3]The stomach is our first line of defense because stomach acids prevent germs from entering the body.

Dr Jonathan Wright has tested thousands of individuals who complained of heartburn and indigestion and found that their digestive problems are most often associated with under-acidity in the stomach.[4] For hundreds of years, a traditional remedy for indigestion is to consume vinegar which is highly acidic. Hydrochloric (HCL) supplements are often prescribed today to improve digestion.

2) Drinking alkaline water will impede the absorption of essential minerals and other nutrients.

“You can trace every sickness, every disease, and every ailment to a mineral deficiency.”  Twice Nobel Prize winner Linus Pauling

Absorption of minerals can be hindered if there is insufficient stomach acid present. Mineral deficiencies are linked to many disease conditions.It is therefore important that we have a strong digestive system to receive the full spectrum of essential minerals necessary from our food and water.

Silica, for instance, is a very important mineral for bone health, and is also essential for healthy hair, nails, teeth, tendons, ligaments and arteries. Numerous conditions including osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, heart disease, etc are the results of insufficient silica. Which is also responsible for wrinkles and cellulite since silica is essential for elastin formation.

We need 50 plus major and trace minerals for robust health and vitality. 

An acidic environment is also required for the uptake of certain vitamins such as B6, B12 and folate, which are essential for numerous functions including the normal functioning of the brain and nervous systems, DNA repair and formation of blood. They are also needed for the production of stomach acids in the first place. So if the stomach acids are constantly neutralized by alkaline water, the stomach’s ability to generate stomach acids is impeded. Therefore the lack of stomach acid will lead to further declines in stomach acid. It is a viscous cycle downhill.

As stomach acid levels decline naturally with age, minerals and vitamin deficiencies are so common in the elderly. So, if you want to speed up the production of “age-related disorders” a simple way to do this is to neutralize your stomach acid. This can achieve this by drinking alkaline ionized water daily.

3) Drinking alkaline water will result in arterial plaque and joint disorders.

Alkaline water machines channel water into an electrolysis chamber where water molecules are ionized and split into the acidic stream, containing positively-charged hydrogen ions (H+), and the alkaline stream, containing negatively charged hydroxyl ions (OH-). The alkaline stream of water is recommended for drinking by proponents of alkalizing machines.

Water from our tap contains naturally occurring minerals. Negatively-charged hydroxyl ions (OH-) are attracted to positively-charged mineral ions (calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium) to form alkaline compounds in the alkaline stream of water. The most common alkaline mineral compounds that form in alkaline ionized water are calcium hydroxide (lime), sodium hydroxide (lye), potassium hydroxide (caustic potash), and magnesium hydroxide (milk of magnesia). These compounds are very stable being held together by strong electrical forces and are not easily broken down. So the alkaline minerals are not available for use in the body. Not only do these caustic inorganic mineral compounds neutralize stomach acids, they may also end up as mineral deposits in your joints and tissues.

Many long term alkaline water drinkers have digestion problems, frequent infections and joint pains. Don’t be the next victim. Instead, drink nature’s fresh pure mineral water which is the most natural and healthiest water for you and your family.

You can create your own pure, clean, structured mineral with Adya Clarity, a natural mineral extract from black mica, which is the substance that nature uses to  clean-up our Earth of toxins and to restore the Earth to balance. This process is happening continuously in our oceans and fresh water bodies. Black mica is nature’s best kept water healing secret and it comes to you now in an easy to administer extract known as Adya Clarity.

    Well, I hardly agree with you.

    Alkaline water is a competitor to your company, that is why you try to downgrade it. Not nice strategies…

      We are just warning the public of inherent dangers of drinking alkaline water long term. No strategies involved here, only stating scientific facts. Many natural health gurus such as Dr Mercola, David Wolfe, Dr Mark Sircus etc have been talking about the adverse effects of alkalizing machines for a long, long time.

    Total misinformation and a very badly written article to promote your product (which maybe a good one for all what I know). Let me tell you and the readers of this article why they should disregard everything said here.

    Alkaline water does NOT dilute stomach acid (unless of course you drink gallons of it while you eat). Your stomach acid is NOT present in the stomach when there is no food there (because if there was acid in the stomach all the time then it would digest itself). So the alkaline water dilutes stomach acid and all of the arguments following that are completely invalid.

    Secondly there are two kinds of Alkaline water. The one kind is what you mention which is the sub optimal kind which is electrically dissociated water, which recombine quite fast and actually may do nothing for you in terms of being Alkaline. The second kind is water that is alkaline through the infusion of alkaline minerals that are beneficial to the body. These minerals are able to get to a cellular lever faster with alkaline water and none of these purported bad effects have been observed. If anyone wants to understand the benefits of alkaline water and alkalizing the body they should read up the work of Dr Robert O Young.

      Thank you Ravik for your comments. We wholeheartedly agree with you that water infused with alkaline minerals are beneficial for the body and we advocate drinking such mineral-rich water. It is really not about pH but mineral content in the water. In the article, we are actually writing about artificially alkalized water through electrolysis. Some of these has pH as high as 9.5. While it is true that stomach acids are not present when there is no food, it is a fact that food is almost always present in the stomach during our waking hours. Considering that food remains in the stomach for hours after ingesting, it is inevitable that stomach acids are weakened when we continually ingest water with high pH.
