MANILA,  APRIL 9, 2010
(STAR) Did you know that for one to have a healthy body, he needs to drink two to three liters of water every day? Water makes up 60 percent of the human body — not to mention 83 percent of one’s blood is water, which is used to transport nutrients, as well as expel wastes.

Water is indeed a vital part of one’s daily routine. However, very few people know the benefits of water, especially its alkaline and acid properties.

The increasing number of degenerative disease sufferers worldwide, from cancer victims to diabetics, has gotten medical practitioners, the media, and public talking about alkaline water’s restorative properties.

Dr. Leonard Horowitz, renowned health advocate and author of AIDS and Ebola, said, “International studies show that population with little or no history of illness, such as cancer, drinks higher (pH) alkaline waters.”

Dr. Sherry Rogers, well-known educator and author of Detox or Die, also discussed in her book that alkaline water rids the body of acid waste. After doing her own set of researches and evaluation, she is convinced that toxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause of degenerative diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

Ideally, acidic water, which is the reverse of alkaline water, is a perfect cleaning agent for moldy kitchen sinks and bathrooms, since its acidic properties promote the reduction of unhealthy bacteria, and are way too harsh for the human body.

But alkaline water is proven to do wonders for the body. In fact, Aquali­Pure, an expert in water systems and equipment, recently introduced a breakthrough product in health and wellness: the Izumi Antioxidant Water Ionizer, to promote the great benefits of alkaline pH water.

According to Fatima Morales, an alkaline water advocate and spokesperson of AqualiPure, “Balanced acid and alkaline levels inside the body is critical to optimal health.”

“With poor diet, stress, lack of sleep, and a polluted environment, it is very easy for the body to produce an acidic environment. But with drinking alkaline water, it can help one restore the body’s chemical balance and one’s mental and emotional state,” she said.

The Izumi Antioxidant Water Ionizer can produce acidic, neutral, and alkaline water to fulfill one’s water needs. It has an LCD screen and easy-to-follow interface to maximize the use of the machine.

First-time alkaline water drinkers should press alkaline level 1 for initial drinking, because it takes two to three weeks for the body to adjust from drinking acidic water to alkaline water. Then, gradually step into the next alkaline level after two weeks.

If one is taking maintenance drugs or vitamins, he should press the green button. Izumi will then produce neutral pH water so as not to interfere with the medicine’s curative properties. Moreover, the body easily absorbs ionized alkaline water together with its powerful antioxidants because of its reduced molecular size. Antioxidants can reverse the signs of aging and restore the normal function of organs and cells.

“Moreover, Izumi offers practical solutions to homemakers. Instead of buying a five-gallon alkaline water worth P40 to P50 every day, Izumi’s state-of-the-art cartridge set can produce 6,000 liters of alkaline water which means a lot of savings per family,” said Morales.

Another great thing about having Izumi in homes and offices is that one can have access to fresh ionized alkaline water anytime of the day. Fresh alkaline water means more antioxidants for the body — the more antioxidants we have, the healthier we become.

AqualiPure, distributor of quality water systems and equipment, offers after-sale services and long-term warranty for Izumi users. For more information, call 288-3858, 288-7331 or 288-2231 or visit
