A water ionizer is an appliance that uses the process of electrolysis. This means the structure of the water is changed on the molecular level which will create antioxidant-rich ionized alkaline water, as well as the oxidizing ionized acidic stream of water consecutively. Water ionization or also known as water electrolysis is the method of producing a concentration of alkaline and acidic minerals – separating the oxygen and hydrogen found in water. The produced alkaline ionized water offers an antioxidant and electron rich medium for consumption while the acidic water provides oxidizing water that acts as an antibacterial and also cleanser for external use.
A process called Electrolysis splits the hydrogen ions and minerals from it, releasing two types of water: Alkaline and Acidic. This Alkaline water is called Alkaline Ionized Water.
pH or potential of Hydrogen value indicates the acidity or the alkalinity of water measured on a scale of 1-14. The WHO prefers the optimum pH of drinking water to be in the range of 7.5 pH to 9.5 pH.
- Balances the body's pH. - Has anti-aging properties. - Enhances immune system. - Prevents a host of diseases such as cancer, arthritis. - Helps remove pesticides from fruits and vegetables.
AIW has high anti-oxidants due to low ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) The more negative the ORP, the more anti-oxidants it possesses.
It prevents cancer-causing free radicals and damage to body cells. Helps release body toxins.
AIW splits natural ionic minerals like Calcium, Potassium and Magnesium. No artificial chemicals are added to this process to make it mineral-rich. These natural minerals are absorbed by the cells easily making the water nutritive.

The most common are returned machines with calcium build-up inside. If your source water contains lots of minerals/calcium, the machine gets clogged up (same as in your kettle). The ionizer will then have to be cleaned, or parts replaced. This can be avoided by counseling our customer care support team with some following the instructions.
If you have very soft water (very few minerals, low “TDS”) the ionizer is not able to produce very alkaline water, as the machine needs minerals to ionize the water. The small calcium cartridges that come with most machines can help add minerals, but if this isn’t sufficient we sell a re-mineralizing cartridge expressly for this purpose. If you have excessive minerals/calcium in your water (hard water), we recommend using a de-scalar pre-filter. This takes out a high amount of minerals and will safeguard your ionizer. (To maintain your warranty, this de-scaling is required). Call Customer Care for details:
Most water can be made compatible with your water ionizer. First, obtain a water quality report so we can see what exactly is in your water (hardness, amount of minerals/calcium, iron, etc). Then we can define what kind of filtration is needed to make your water suitable for your ionizer.
The Sediment and Pre Carbon filter take out chlorine, chloramines, organic and inorganic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, and microbes.
You should start slowly. Set the controls to the lowest level and drink one to three glasses per day. Assuming the water agrees with you, increase the amount you drink and the level of ionization intensity. High levels of alkalinity up to 9.0 pH to 9.5 pH are best for drinking water, but the highest levels should be used only for cooking. In a few individuals, the detoxification effects from drinking alkaline ionized water can cause headaches and diarrhea for a short time. And for some older people, ionized water can tend, at first, to open the bowels. This is why a slow start is advised.
MIZUQI Alkaline water is safe for everybody. Even nursing infants. Make sure you give their body the time to get used to alkaline water, by starting on a low level; and going one level up after a week. And since children have usually not accumulated toxins in their bodies, they experience no detoxification symptoms. It’s recommended to not use alkaline water when taking medication use the “purified water” setting instead. Alkaline water is used for horses, commercial dairy operations, and for dogs and cats.
Acid-ionized water is destructive to bacteria and is astringent. As a result, it has found widespread application commercially in nurseries, surgeries, food preparation areas, sprout and wheatgrass growers, florists, hospitals, etc. In the home, it's an excellent cleansing and sterilizing agent, with uses in the kitchen, for hair and skin care, & extending the life of flowers. Your plants will love it!
I’ve had my ionizer a short while and noticed a mineral build-up on my water bottles and pitcher. Is this a bad sign?
No. It’s a sign that you’re getting 20-30% more alkaline, bone-building minerals than you would in your tap water. If you wish, you can remove the deposits by filling the bottle or pitcher with water and a few tablespoons of vinegar. Leave for a few hours or overnight, and give it a quick scrub. The deposits will come off easily.
Provide direct current to both poles of the electrolytic cell in which the diaphragm is installed. The movement of electrons gives the water at the (+) pole more hydrogen ions and at the (-) pole more oxalic acid ions. These hydrogen and oxalic acid ions activate, and the water with more hydrogen ions and dissolved oxygen become acidic, and the water with more oxalic acid ions becomes alkaline. Alkaline ionized water contains many inorganic minerals and becomes drinking water. The acidic ionized water has a sterilization effect and can be used for healing skin problems. Acidic ionized water is also compatible with outside-of-the-human body acidity of pH 5.5 and it is used as a face and body wash for beautiful skin, and hair protection.
Little cluster Motility improves when the molecular cluster is smaller. Small clusters make it easier to dissolute and excrete waste matter within the body. This fact is important because the excess waste matter is the reason for aging and disease. Alkaline ionized water has small clusters with high motility and dissolute, so you excrete waste matter from the body rapidly. Abundant active mineral Minerals are also called inorganic matter or mineral matter. There are many kinds of minerals. They are found in animals and vegetables, food, and water. These minerals smoothen our living activities and maintain a balance. ; Mineral absorption - An activated form of minerals is much better absorbed in the body. Good restoration Controls saprogenic bacteria in organs and increases beneficial bacteria. There are about 100 kinds of bacteria, up to a trillion microorganisms living in the large intestine, and are classified as both beneficial and harmful depending on the bacteria species. Alkaline ionized water controls saprogenic bacteria to prevent disease. Alkaline ionized water is the only water that can restore and help beneficial bacteria in the body. Eliminates active oxygen Active oxygen is oxygen that easily bonds or combines with surrounding substances. Active oxygen is unstable and therefore has fewer electrons. The active oxygen possesses higher oxidizing power and is related directly to aging and disease. Abundant hexagonal water Water molecules consist of 15 to 20 molecules. Hexagonal water, water clustered with 6 water molecules, is the most stable and natural to the human body. One human body cell molecule is connected to about 70,000, 60~65% of them are hexagonal water molecules. The body favors this kind of water. The cell that suffers from diseases has less hexagonal water. - Lower the temperature of water like iced water. - Electrolyze water with abundant minerals. - Go through magnetic treatment.
Acidity and alkalinity. pH = the unit that indicates the density of acid and alkaline in water. Water becomes acidic with increased oxalic acid and alkaline with increased hydrogen ions. The measuring unit of acidity and alkalinity is indicated by pH values, e.g., pH 7 is considered neutral. Each numerical increment indicates 10 times more hydrogen ions or oxalic acid. For example, an increase of 1 in a pH table means 10 times more alkalinity. A decrease of 1 means 10 times more acidity. 2) Maintaining pH balance The human body tends to maintain body fluid at pH7.3 according to the homeostasis function. The body tries to maintain the balance of each organ with alkaline body fluid of pH 8.8 from the pancreas as the peak. However, a consistent acidic constitution will result in lowering one's self-protection function in the body. Even though there is no visible sign of disease, alkaline water drinking will support the body with homeostasis functions. Alkaline water drinking also prevents geriatric disease because it defends the body against acidification of the physical constitution.
Water Ionizers are manufactured in two countries, Japan and Taiwan. None are currently manufactured in the United States and India.
Water Ionizers have been available in the orient for over forty years and in the United States for about 10 years. They were popularized in Japan and began to become somewhat common there around the mid-1980s. Several Japanese models imported in recent years from Japan are no longer being manufactured although getting filters for those units usually does not pose a significant problem, although they can sometimes be costly
A Water Ionizer should have a three-prong plug and thick electrical wire. Two-prong plugs encourage overheating as they do with any other appliance. It does not matter whether a Water Ionizer has a fuse or a circuit breaker, although circuit breaker Water Ionizers often have thin electrical wires, two-prong plugs, and weak transformers that overheat. Thus they often require a circuit breaker rather than a fuse which would often need to be replaced.
A Water Ionizer should have at least 3 levels of intensity to chose from. This is mainly because Ionized Water is extremely detoxifying and people who have toxins built up in their system can suffer reactions such as headaches or diarrhea. This is especially true of the elderly because they often have built up many toxins in their bodies over the years. Also, those who have a very poor diet or have taken a lot of medicine. Having 4 levels simply offers the convenience of more levels of strength to choose from, thus allowing people to build their tolerance for Ionized Water more slowly if they wish.
Does the volume of water that a Water Ionizer produces per minute an important feature to consider? Are some Water Ionizers on the market stronger than other Water Ionizers?
All home Water Ionizers currently manufactured deliver approximately 1 to 1 1/2 gallons per minute. There is very little difference between the strength of the various Water Ionizers on the market. Ionized Water with a 10 pH or higher takes only an unflattering taste, almost as though it is salty. The slower you run water through a Water Ionizer, the stronger it will become because the source water has more contact time with the electrodes. This is why the flow rate of Water Ionizers essentially does not matter. If you wish to drink strong Ionized Water then running the source water through it very slowly will accomplish this.
Some water ionizers feature a port or compartment where calcium, magnesium, and other minerals can be added, boosting the intensity of the ionized water. Once minerals have been ionized they are assimilated into the body more easily. The more minerals that are in the source water used to produce the ionized water, the stronger it will be. This is why ionized water cannot be made from distilled, purified or reverse osmosis water sources.
The electrodes are one of the most important components of a Water Ionizer. It is sometimes suggested that there are units on the market that have stainless steel electrodes and this simply is not the case. All Water Ionizers currently manufactured have titanium electrodes that have been dipped in platinum, which is one of the biggest cost of a Water Ionizer. It is important to note that the electrodes are coated with platinum, not electroplated with it
There have been claims made by water ionizer manufacturers that they use solid platinum electrodes. Is this true?
This can not be true because it would not aid in the performance of the water ionizer. Water Ionizer manufacturers use titanium because it is hard and lasts many years. They coat the titanium with platinum because it is good conductor and it durable. However, to manufacture electrodes that are solid platinum would make no sense. It would be very costly, nearly tripling the prices of the electrodes, and it would not improve the quality or strength of the Ionized Water produced by them. Platinum is also a very soft metal, which would not be suitable or practical for producing platinum-pure electrodes since they must be comprised of a hard metal such as titanium if they are expected to last several years. Electrodes comprised of pure platinum would not last any longer than platinum-coated titanium electrodes.
All continuous flow Home Water Ionizers on the market have a carbon filter. The carbon in the filter is silver impregnated in order to retard bacterial growth. The silver that is impregnated in the carbon will NOT leach into the water. Every major manufacturer of carbon filters in the US produces carbon filters with silver impregnation. There are no Water Ionizers currently manufactured that use arsenic in their filters as has been suggested.
The purpose of UV light is for bacterial disinfection. However, on a Water Ionizer, this is completely unnecessary for several reasons. If you have city (municipal) water then your water has already been disinfected through the use of chlorine. The carbon filter on the Water Ionizer will remove the chlorine. The UV light itself loses much of its effectiveness after the first six months of use and should be replaced often, which is of course an expensive proposition. Also, the glass tube that the water travels through in order that it can be exposed to the UV light develops a film on it after only a few months, which greatly lessens the effectiveness of the UV light on the water which passes through the tube.
There have been statements made regarding Water Ionizers removing fluoride from municipal water. Water Ionizers can not remove anything from the water. To Ionize means simply to gain or loose an electron. The amount and type of minerals that are present in the water before ionization is the same after ionization. In every test we are aware of, no more than 50% of the fluoride in the water was lost on the alkaline side of the Ionized Water. This means that half but not all of the fluorides in the Ionized Water after ionization had migrated to the acidic side of the ionization process which runs into the drain. However, it must be clearly stated that the ionizing water does NOT completely remove fluoride from the Ionized Water on the alkaline side.
