People have long recognized the importance of boosting immunity and its many benefits. Immune boosting is associated with improved mood, increased metabolism, disease prevention, anti-inflammation, better cognition, gut health, and skincare. The advent of the Covid-19 pandemic has only made us more aware of the need to boost our immunity to stay healthy and away from the potentially fatal Covid virus.
What is Ionized Water?
Some studies highlight the benefits of drinking ionized alkaline water in boosting immunity. Water is rated on a scale of 0 to14 to know whether acidic or alkaline. Numbers below seven are considered acidic whereas those above seven indicate alkaline in nature. The higher the number, the higher the alkalinity level of the water.
Generally, regular drinking water has a pH of 7; it is neither acidic nor alkaline. The U.S. Environmental and Protection Agency which monitors the quality of public drinking water across the United States, recommends that tap water pH should be at 6.5 to 8.5.
Water that comes from springs and flows over rocks is naturally alkaline as it picks up minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, and silicates on its way.
Most of the alkaline water that has been prepared for commercial usage has been ionized through a chemical process called electrolysis. Manufacturers use equipment known as an ionizer to bring the pH of the water between 8 and 9. During the ionization process, a molecule either gains or loses an electron. The first group is called “negative ions”, which are beneficial for health; whereas the latter is known as “positive ions”, which are harmful to humans. Acidic and alkaline molecules are separated during the ionization, with only the alkaline molecules preserved. In some cases, nutrients such as adding baking soda may be added to water to increase its pH level.
How Ionized Water Helps the Immune System
Ionized water contains millions of healthy negative ions. These negative ions increase our body’s oxygen intake, which in turn, improves our immunity, energy, and mood.
There is an excess amount of toxic compounds in the body. These toxic compounds cause the body to work extra hard to maintain its biological functions and may lead to weakness. Ionized water, on the other hand, neutralizes these toxic compounds present in the body. More easily absorbed by the body, ionized water allows your body to use the water you drink effectively. Toxins and harmful substances are flushed out of your system more easily.
Drinking ionized water regularly alters the quality of blood in such a way that more oxygen is carried to vital organs. Ionized water makes the immune system stronger to fight foreign pathogens and infections.
Other Benefits of Ionized Water
The basic nature of ionized water neutralizes the acidic content in the bloodstream. The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) of the water is decreased, resulting in bringing out its antioxidant nature while introducing a variety of natural minerals. Drinking ionized water offers multiple health benefits including the following:
1. It Has Detoxifying Properties
As mentioned earlier, toxins and harmful substances are flushed out of your system more easily when you drink ionized water.
2. It Has Antioxidant Properties and Helps to Fight Free Radicals
Drinking ionized water can help to prevent the growth of cell-damaging free radicals, which can accelerate the aging process. According to a report published in Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, ionized water provides higher longevity in terms of deceleration in aging as it increases survival functions.
3. It Improves the Performance of Your Circulatory System
In a study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition, a significant difference was observed in the whole blood viscosity of participants after consuming ionized alkaline water as opposed to drinking regular water after a vigorous workout.
4. It Aids in Digestion and Assimilation
Drinking ionized water supports food digestion and assimilation. It also relieves acid reflux, which often affects people who eat cuisines that tend to be spicy.
5. It Strengthens Bones
Some studies suggest that ionized water might help slow bone loss and improve overall bone mineral density. A study published in Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine indicated that drinking ionized water may prevent osteoporosis. It can also protect pancreatic beta cells with its antioxidant effects.
6. It Helps in Weight Reduction
Our bodies are in a more acidic environment because of all of the processed foods, sugary drinks, and caffeine we consume. To neutralize acidity, the body creates fat cells. Drinking ionized water will help neutralize those acids and reduce fat storage. With a healthy level of alkalinity, people will not produce the fat cells needed to neutralize the acid that enters the body.
7. It Promotes Better Hydration for the Skin and Body
Ionized water provides better hydration than regular water because it is readily absorbed into the body. Because of its hydration benefits, most athletes will turn to alkaline water.
Introducing blu’s Ionic Shower Filter (and Its Advantages)
All the previous discussions focus on the benefits of ionized water when consumed by drinking. Did you know that every home, including yours, has a built-in natural ionizer? It’s all in your shower!
When water is naturally purified and ionized, and absorbed through the pores, it is thrown into the bloodstream. As with orally consumed ionized water, negative ions result in umpteen health benefits including:
- Improvements in concentration, mood, and sleep
- Negative ions can protect the body from induced physical stress according to researchers at the Russian Academy of Sciences in Moscow
- Relief from migraines, asthma, and depression
- Negative ions can help keep serotonin levels up and prevent fatigue from gaining hold
- Elimination of airborne pollutants, bacteria, germs, and viruses
- Negative ions cluster around dust and pollutants to form larger particles that become too heavy, and fall down and out of the way of people breathing problems. Dr. Albert Krueger has also proved that negative ions could kill many microorganisms
- Treatment of wounds and various skin diseases
- Negative electric ions when permeated into the surface of the skin demonstrate good metabolism of the cell membranes and strengthen the body’s immune system
- Relief from joint pain
- Research on burn victims and arthritis patients show that exposure to negative ions significantly helps reduce pain levels and heal faster against infection
- Strengthening immunity and physiological response improvement
- Negative ions significantly improve all physiological states, particularly during rest. Biologically active, they affect the body’s circadian rhythmicity
Leveraging advanced technology in ionization, blu has developed an intelligent health solution that will improve the lives and well-being of people with an affordable yet effective product that addresses health problems – the Ionic Shower Filter.
blu Ionic Shower Filter has the potential to deliver all the health benefits we have discussed so far and many more. It addresses health issues at the root cause specifically hair and skin issues.
