A step-by-step guide for testing both the Alkaline and Acidic levels (or pH levels) of the water from your tap and Ionizer. Produced by AlkaViva Technical Support.
pH is a measurement that indicates the level of alkalinity or acidity as measured on the pH scale. More and more researchers and health practitioners understand the importance of balancing body pH to maintain good health. Ionization raises or lowers the pH in water and drinking ionized alkaline water can help you maintain this ever-important balance.
Ionization also alters the water's electrical properties. The way this is measured is through Oxidation Reduction Potential or ORP (redox), which is expressed in millivolts. Alteration to the ORP in ionized alkaline water also indicates an increase in -OH ions that improve alkalinity plus an increase in bio-available H2 molecules - responsible for improving hydrating and antioxidant effects.
Ionizer performance is affected by multiple factors, and only the characteristics that can be measured scientifically should be considered when evaluating a water ionizer.
AlkaViva is the only water ionizer company which has commissioned an EPA-certified, third party, independent laboratory to document the performance of different brands.
