Scientific Proof of Alkaline Ionized Drinking Water’s Anti-Diabetic Health Benefits

Medical research has proven the anti-diabetic effects of drinking alkaline ionized water since drinking this water “significantly reduced the blood glucose concentration and improved glucose tolerance”(Kim MJ, Kim HK) in type 1 and type 2 diabetes cases. Medical scientist have even advocated its use as an anti-diabetic agent after discovering that “Electrolyzed Reduced Water (ERW) with Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) scavenging ability reduced the blood glucose concentration, increased blood insulin level, improved glucose tolerance and preserved beta-cell mass in db/db mice. The present data suggest that ERW may protects beta-cell damage and would be useful for antidiabetic agent”(Kim MJ, Jung KH, Uhm YK, Leem KH, Kim HK). In addition “long-term ingestion of ARW resulted in a reduction in the levels of glucose, triglycerides, and total cholesterol in the blood”(Dan Jin, Sung Hoon Ryu, Hyun Won Kim, Eun Ju Yang, Soo Jung Lim, Yong Suk Ryang, Choon Hee Chung, Seung Kyu Park, Kye Jae Lee). Further medical research discovered that drinking reduced water prevents Alloxan induced cell damage which causes type 1-diabetes mellitus. Scientist conducting the study concluded “These results suggest that Reduced Water protects pancreatic beta-cells from alloxan-induced cell damage by preventing alloxan-derived ROS generation. Reduced Water may be useful in preventing alloxan-induced type 1-diabetes mellitus”(Li Y, Nishimura T, Teruya K, Maki T, Komatsu T, Hamasaki T, Kashiwagi T, Kabayama S, Shim SY, Katakura Y, Osada K, Kawahara T, Otsubo K, Morisawa S, Ishii Y, Gadek Z, Shirahata S).

Seeing the Benefits

Ionized water benefits the body in many ways especially for diabetic patients since medical research has shown its ability to “significantly reduced the blood glucose concentration and improve glucose tolerance”(Kim MJ) in diabetes mellitus cases. Anti cancer research into alkaline waters benefits has shown that “inhibitory effects have also been observed in the growth of tumor and cancer cells”(Nishikawa RKomatsu T).

In addition to these medically researched health benefits the water clusters produced inside the electrolysis chamber in your water ionizer are micro-clustered. Meaning they possess 4 to 6 H2O molecules per cluster compared to the normal 12 to 24 molecules per cluster in tap, bottled, and distilled water. These reduced size water clusters are easier for your bodies cells to absorb through their cell walls and allow for two to three times faster re-hydration over all other drinking water sources. The smaller sized water clusters also help to detoxify and cleanse your body. In fact when you drink alkaline ionized water you will notice its light smooth texture which allows it to go down faster and easier than ordinary water which has a solid flat texture. Drinking ionized water is the perfect complement to any alkaline diet especially those based on balancing the alkaline balance in the body.

Use the acidic water produced by your machine as great chemical free disinfectant which can be used to wash off bacteria and pesticides from fruits and vegetables. In fact research has shown “electrolyzed water is up to 80 times more effective at killing pathogens than chlorinated water and it does this without the toxicity”(Electrolyzed Water).

With all these advantages over an ordinary drinking water filter system having a water ionizer machine in your kitchen will not only give you many health benefits from drinking the water it also supplies a simple chemical free way to sterilize and “kill food-borne bacteria such as salmonella, E.coli, and listeria”(CNNLiu C) when preparing meals in your home. Please read the additional health benefits below that will soon be yours when you connect a water ionizer to your kitchen tap.
