A few weeks back we asked the question, “What’s the Best Quality H2O?” The answer created even more questions, like what is structured water and why is it the healthiest? Today’s guest blogger, Jennifer Kardish, attempts to satisfy our curiosity.
Anyone who has taken an elementary school science class knows that H2O is the chemical symbol for water. It’s the water we drink, bathe in, and use to grow plants, and it has basically been the same (plus or minus a few chemical treatments) since the beginning of time.
However, in this modern era, it seems that nothing is beyond the tinkering of man, and water is no exception. Although you’ve probably never heard of structured water, you may be using it without even knowing.
Have you noticed that there are different types of water? You can likely tell the difference between “hard” water (which may be drying to your skin and leaves your soap with little lather) and “soft” water (which fills your tub with suds).
Structured H2O is water of the soft variety, and it can not only be precisely engineered, it also has several benefits over unstructured water. To start, you may want to understand how structured H2O is formed.
The process begins with filtering the water to remove impurities like minerals, chemicals from pesticides and fertilizers, and bacteria and viruses. From there, the molecules undergo electrolysis as they pass through a structured water device, which actually restructures the H2O molecules. The water is ionized, alkalized, and deoxidized, which means it is basically filtered at a much finer level than a standard filter or purifier could provide. The resultant water has a lower surface tension than regular H2O, is considered more hydrating, and freezes at lower temperatures.
This process itself is fairly technical, but the outcome is simple: structured water is a lot better for you. The reason is because the smaller particles are more easily absorbed into the cells of your body, making structured water much more hydrating than its unstructured counterpart.
While many people have noticed astonishing changes in their overall health after switching to structured water, the only evidence yet garnered from tests concerns the colon. In cases where patients with colon conditions started drinking structured water exclusively, doctors noted an increase colon hydration, but also a breakup of mucoid plaque in the colon, leading to better function and reduction of symptoms.
And keep in mind that water works in all parts of our body, aiding in lubrication of joints, digestion, and circulation. Add to that the fact that as we age, our cells absorb less water, and you begin to see why a system that promotes increased hydration could have dramatic positive effects on our bodies.
Beyond that, structured water is great for plants. In gardens that utilize a structured water device, plants need less water to remain hydrated and the structured H2O allows for a greater intake of nutrients, producing trees and plants that are more vibrant and productive. Cutting down on water usage and increasing growth at the same time is not only great for the plants, it is also good for our environment (and it probably creates healthier produce).
In short, structured H2O is better H2O. By removing impurities and breaking water down into its simplest form, we make it easier to absorb and receive the maximum benefits of this life-giving fluid.
