Beyonce Knowles recently made the headlines for insisting on drinking alkaline water during her tour, which she drank at exactly 21 degrees, through a titanium straw. Many mainstream media outlets criticized Beyonce for her choice of refreshment, dismissing her as a “diva”. But a closer look at the facts reveals that Beyonce is setting an excellent example for her fans, and showing the rest of us a way forward.
Health benefits of alkaline water:
Hydration: Due to alkaline ionized water’s smaller water cluster size, alkaline water can hydrate and enter your body cells more effectively than regular drinking water.
Energy: Because of the hydrating effects of alkaline ionized water, you will feel more energized and ready to embark on any challenge. The natural antioxidant and alkaline minerals found in alkaline ionized water will also help revitalize and replenish lost minerals.
Acid Neutralizing: Many of the processed foods and beverages we eat are acidic in nature. While acid production in our body is nearly impossible to avoid, it can have negative effects on the way we feel and operate. Bodies high in toxic acidic waste over an extended period of time experience a loss of strength, decreased bone, muscle, and kidney health, and decreased vitality or sluggishness. Many leading doctors and nutritionists believe that one key measure to prevent Acid Tide is by consuming food and beverages with high alkaline metabolizing effects.
Mineral Nutrition: Alkaline Ionized Water is charged with antioxidant and alkaline minerals such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, iron among many others. These minerals can be found in alkaline foods as well, but alkaline ionized water is also effective in providing these essential nutrients.
Ionized alkaline water is popular for drinking for its health benefits. But for healthy hair and skin, acidic ionized water is the right choice. The hair and skin have a pH range of 3 – 3.5, so ionized acidic water provides the right pH balance for hair and skin
Beauty water is ionized water
Ionized acidic water is called beauty water in Asia, because it is widely used for its beauty benefits. Ionized acidic water acts as an astringent, naturally toning and tightening the skin. Minor skin irritations can be soothed by acidic water, and it can even be used for first aid.
How to use ionized water for beautiful skin
Use mild acidic water, with a pH of 4 – 5. Wash regularly with ionized acidic water to help your skin’s pH balance and improve its appearance. If your face looks tired, splash on some ionized water and it will brighten up your skin for a quick beauty tune-up. Ionized acidic water is a great touch up for puffy eyes.
For irritated skin, soak a clean cloth in ionized acidic water and cover the affected area with it. For soothing skin irritations, the water should be cool to cold. For sunburns and minor burns, use cold ionized acidic water.
Ionized acidic water is a miracle for hair
If you have long hair, you will love what ionized acidic water will do for it. Rinsing hair with ionized acidic water compacts and closes hair follicles. This makes the hair stronger, shinier, and more manageable. An ionized acidic water rinse for damaged or over processed hair can restore health and shine in as little as one treatment!
Ionized acidic water is gentle enough to use every day. Over time, it will help to dissolve and rinse away build up left by styling products and hard water.
How to use ionized water for beautiful hair
Wash your hair normally and put conditioner in as you normally would. Rinse the conditioner from your hair with ionized acidic water. Amazingly, you can even comb the conditioner out of your hair as you rinse it! Ionized acidic water makes the tangles just fall out.

On this beautiful day, we would like to say Happy Valentines Day!
And speaking of love, here is an ode to that we love most…
A Poem by Warren King, L.Ac.
No odor doth thou release to nose
Nor color to the eye
No savor to the thirsting tongue
Now I think that I know why
Repeated drops a canyon carves
And labyrinths of caves
Reflecting all when stillness reigns
Or pounding rock to sand with waves
Two hydrogen they say you have
Is not that the composition of the Sun?
One oxygen combined with these
With the breath of Life you’re one
So mix the spirit fire
With the mind of air
And you get this substance
To which nothing can compare
Cycling through all nature
Ocean, clouds and rain
Flowing in all bloodstreams
Over chemistry supreme you reign
You purify and crystallize
With no seeming effort in your task
No life exists without you
But never thanks you ask
Merely streaming on your way
Without a backward glance
Nurturing at every turn
All being you enhance
Mother I might call you
For all that thou dost give
Or Water, as your common name
I thank you that I live
On this Valentine’s we hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and remember to stay hydrated with delicious alkaline ionized water.

When most of us think about water, we might visualize a lake, river, stream, ocean, droplets of rain and so on, but we don’t really think much about our ground water. Ground water however, plays a very important role in our water cycle.
When water evaporates and falls in the form of rain or ice, it eventually ends up in the ground. This groundwater then travels through the cracks in the soil and makes its way to a lake, river, ocean or large body of water, where it can evaporate once more and go through the same cycle all over again. As you can see, our water is constantly on a moving cycle.
However, a problem emerges when we begin to think about all of the contaminants we have stored underground. Throughout decades we have been storing things like oil and gasoline underground, we have also built septic tanks and landfills to dispose our waste. These underground storage facilities pollute the groundwater that will eventually make its way to lakes, rivers, rain or even become our tap water.
Pollutants like industrial chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, detergents, fertilizers, lead, mercury, nickel, chromium and even bacteria can be found in our groundwater.
This can be a scary thought specially if you drink or cook with tap water.
Fortunately for us, there are ways we can reduce this harmful pollutants from our drinking water. Think Alkaline offers a great line of affordable water filtering units that generate clean and deliciously crisp drinking water, click here to take a look!
Once again, thank you for reading. We hope you have a wonderful rest of your week.
When most of us hear the word “dehydration” we might think of a thirsty person stuck in the middle of the desert, but that is not always the event in which dehydration occurs. Most of us are dehydrated right now, and we might not even know it!
The truth is that dehydration is very common amongst us. Water is lost in every activity we do throughout the day, exercising, walking, talking, perspiring even breathing. Many of us do not replenish the water we loose during these activities and thus end up dehydrated. Many of us also like to drink coffee and alcohol and these drinks make us loose even more water. Are we replenishing the water we are loosing?
When we don’t replenish the lost water in our bodies, we begin to see the symptoms. Some are very subtle like chapped and dry lips, others are a bit more uncomfortable like nausea, constipation, brain fog, fatigue or headaches. Are you experiencing any of these symptoms today? If so, ask yourself if you have had enough water throughout your day.
Drinking water ensures the transportation and absorption of nutrients, we also need water for the elimination of waste, regulation of body temperature, joint lubrication and tissue moisture. Water also supports the helical spiral of DNA and is involved in the transmission of signals throughout our body, when the amount or quality of the water we drink is compromised, these signals become distorted or short-circuited. So it is safe to say that drinking a lot of water is crucial for good health, in fact many diseases could be avoided by staying hydrated.
Problems like fatigue, constipation, digestive disorders, high blood pressure, cholesterol, respiratory troubles, acid-alkaline imbalance, weight gain, skin disorders, liver, kidney, bladder problems, joint problems and premature aging could all be avoided or reduced by staying hydrated. Who knew?!
Drinking water could help, but did you know that alkaline ionized water has even better results than drinking ordinary filtered water. How so? you may ask. Alkaline Ionized Water goes through a process called ionization where, once filtered enters an electrolysis chamber that generates alkaline ionized water. This water is hexagon shaped and can enter and hydrate cells more efficiently than a regular water molecule. Read more about the fascinating facts of alkaline ionized water here!
Thank you for reading and remember, stay hydrated!
According to WC&P Magazine published May 10, 2010:
Over the last decade, scientists have discovered evidence linking viruses to a common chronic human health concern: Obesity.
At least one of the suspected human obesity viruses may be spread via the waterborne route.
The 2007-2008 prevalence rate of obesity in the US was over 30% for all age groups. Grouping categories of overweight and obese, the prevalence is closer to 68%. Obesity is a known risk factor for chronic conditions such as stroke, heart attack, hypertension, diabetes, cancer and other illnesses that are the primary causes of death in the US. The battle against the bulge is most commonly waged with a formula of fewer calories in than out, but there may be more complicated factors at work including viral infections.
While overeating, under-exercising, and genetics are the primary factors in obesity, the role of microbial infections is intriguing and gaining momentum.
So where are these microbial infections coming from? WC&P continues to say that
Adenoviruses are readily found in waste water, drinking water and recreational water sources. Clinical isolates of the obesity associated infection, indicate a fecal-oral route of transmission and thus, like other adenoviruses, is very likely spread in drinking water. Many studies state that the virus is susceptible to conventional water treatment methods, such as chlorination.
This is very important, specially for people who drink tap water or are in constant contact with water. It is very important to drink filtered water to reduce the event of contracting this virus. In home water filters are perfect for reducing the chances of drinking bacteria. A2O Water Co. offers a great line of home and travel filtering units that are a perfect alternative to bottled and tap water. Click here to take a look at our filtering units.

Whoa! Talk about a hot Summer 2012, is it just us or has it been a hotter Summer than the last one? According to the Chicago Tribune, July 2012 was the hottest month in the continental U.S. since the government began keeping those records in 1895. There is no denying that temperatures have been increasing gradually throughout the years. In fact, according to Rolling Stone NASA reported that ice all across the vast glacial interior of the world’s largest island is melting. This is a scary and shocking revelation!
There is no denying that a large portion of the reason why this heat has become even more unbearable is our own fault. We humans are using up the world’s resources at a rate that is higher than Earth can regenerate. Our carbon footprint is becoming larger and larger every year that goes by. Populations are growing at significant rates and this of course increases our carbon footprint. Water is being used inadequately and wasted in the United States more than any other country in the world, while other countries barely have enough clean water to survive. We are releasing toxic waste in our oceans and polluting our air. We are a nation that cannot function without oil and gasoline. Is it that we cannot function without it, or is it that switching to cleaner energy poses a problem with most oil companies and they do not want to allow a change? It’s a very sad reality but America has been far much interested in making profits than keeping and preserving our planet, and surely we are all facing the consequences of our actions today and will face even harsher consequences in the future if we chose not to change our affluent ways of living.
It is our choice to make, not the giant oil companies and corporations! We as consumers have the power to chose better alternatives, Green alternatives, solutions! We cannot choose to continue our current ways of living, we cannot continue to waste water, electricity, and things (electronics, plastics, clothes.. etc…) It is just not possible! If we continue we will see even worse climate conditions. Even now, we are experiencing a series of droughts that are affecting crops and farmers. This is serious stuff! We cannot afford to keep tuning it out, we have to make a change now! TODAY!
America, please hear our plea, and make a stand! Only we can save preserve our planet, we must try to keep a humble mind and remember that this planet is not only ours to use up, there are generations after us that will live here as well, let’s give them an Earth We would also love to live in!
So you have made the investment on your health and bought an ionizer unit! That’s wonderful news!! But there are things you must do to keep your unit in the best shape possible!
- Change your filter every 6 to 12 months. By changing your filter, you will increase your water pressure. You will also not be at risk of drinking contaminated water.
- Use a cleaning cartridge before filter replacement. When you use a cleaning cartridge you are reducing the sediment build-up inside the electrolysis chamber of your unit. Sediment build-up is the lead cause of most ionizer problems.
- Use the right filter for your region.Some regions require the use of specific filters due to the water quality and conditions. Examples are apartments in New York, due to the altitude of these buildings, a carbon block filter is often not a good fit, therefore Granulated Activated Carbon (GAC) filters are the best choice.
- Check your water pressure. Water pressure is important, the lower the water pressure the longer amount of time the water will be in the electrolysis chamber, this means the pH of the water will be higher. Make sure your water pressure is good before using machine, if you have a low water pressure, use a GAC filter instead.
We hope these tips help you in maximizing the use of your unit. Ionizers are very valuable pieces of equipment, but without proper care they will not last as long as they are intended to. Remember to love your unit and most importantly, love your health! Thanks for reading!
