Ionized Water Studies
Here are a couple studies about alkaline ionized water, also known as electrolyzed reduced water, which discuss some of the groundbreaking research and benefits.
The first few articles discuss the benefits of molecular hydrogen, which is the main antioxidant that water ionizers produce.
Molecular Hydrogen (Antioxidant) Research
Hydrogen increases insulin sensitivity, decreases blood sugar, and blood cholesterol levels making hydrogen a potential therapy for fighting obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.
Hydrogen can calm allergic reactions by modulating cell processes and restoring homeostasis.
Hydrogen-rich water improves mitochondrial function, which are the powerhouses of the cells.
Hydrogen exerts antioxidant, anti-apoptotic, anti-inflammatory, and cytoprotective properties that are beneficial to the cell.
Hydrogen is able to reduce the risk of life style-related diseases and thus can be used to treat various diseases using its characteristic of protecting nuclear DNA and mitochondria.
Electrolyzed Reduced/Alkaline Ionized Water
Reduced waters are expected to have preventive and positive effects on oxidative stress-related diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and neurodegenerative diseases.
High pH, electrolyte water was better hydrating when compared to standard purified water.
