FAQ

How does a water Ioniser work?

To ionize means to gain or lose an electron. Direct current flows from (-) pole to (+) pole. Electron current (e-) is opposite to current (I), so the movement of electrons flows from (+) pole to (-) pole.

How can Ionised water provide both excess oxygen and antioxidants if oxygen is oxidising?

While traditional water contains free oxygen (O2) which is actually a free radical that oxidizes the body, ionized water binds oxygen to hydrogen resulting in a safer delivery of oxygen to the cells. Ionized water also has negative ORP (Oxygen Reduction Potential) which means it is full of antioxidants that seek out free radicals.

What is ORP (Oxygen Reduction Potential)?

ORP is the electrical charge needed to reduce or slow down oxidization (decay). Alkaline water must have a negative ORP in order to be considered beneficial to drink. ORP provides the ability to reduce oxygen’s ability to oxidize. ORP can be measured through an electronic hardware device. A negative ORP value (meaning a surplus of electrons) in ionized alkaline water is evidence of its antioxidant power.

What is the “cluster theory” of deoxidised water?

Approximately 15 years ago, with the help of the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) appliance, a theory that water does not exist in single unit molecules was confirmed. Water molecules form molecular clusters of approximately 13 water molecules. These clusters constantly repeat an aggregation/disaggregation process. The quality of water and its ability to hydrate, directly depends on the size of its clusters.

For example, small clusters have active molecules that increase the capacity of water to dissolve elements (solubility), let elements pass through (permeability), and let heat and electric charge pass through (conduction). Electrolysis gives the water molecules similar charge, which causes them to repel each other and break apart.

Ionized alkaline water has clusters made up of five to six water molecules resulting in a lower molecular weight, better solubility, permeability, and conduction. Standard tap water contains about 12-15 water molecules per cluster.

Is your water micro-clustered?

Chanson ionized alkaline water is microclustered, alkaline, ionized, structured, electrolyzed and reduced. Click here to see our microcluster report.
