Q: What should I expect from drinking Ionized Alkaline Water?
A: This will initially depend on the strength level you begin drinking Ionized Alkaline Water. Ionized Water provides your body with lots of oxygen, which is why it gives us energy, Ionized water is much smoother tasting than conventional water. It makes better coffee, tea, juice, etc. Ionized alkaline water is wonderful to cook with because it helps to hydrate the food and bring out its flavor. However, other changes in your body will be much more subtle. If you have accumulated acid waste in your system, it probably took years for you to get into that condition and it will take some time to reverse it. As the body is slowly brought into pH balance by drinking Ionized water, it will naturally begin to function more efficiently, and problems will begin to correct themselves.
Q: Is there anyone who should not drink Ionized Alkaline Water?
A: Some people must start by drinking very small amounts of Ionized alkaline water, such as 8 oz. of strength level 1 (one) per day. This is especially true of the elderly who often have unfortunately allowed heavy metals and other toxins to accumulate in their bodies. Sometimes years of medication has accumulated in them as well.
Children 3 years and younger should not drink Ionized Alkali ne Water. They may only drink the purified water from the Ionizer. Children between the ages of 4 years and 12 years should only drink Ionize Ionized alkaline water at strength level 1 (one) and strength level 2 (two). Children between the ages of 4 and 12 years of age should never drink Ionized alkaline water at strength level 3 (three) or strength level 4 (four).
Q: Should I take medications or supplements with Ionized Alkaline Water?
A: You should not drink Ionized alkaline water 45 minutes to 1 hour before or after taking medication or supplements. Use purified water or another liquid or water source.
Q: How much water should I drink and at what level?
A: At a minimum, you should drink half your body weight in ounces per day. For example, a person weighing 100 pounds should drink 50 ounces. You should start slowly at strength Level 1 (one), drinking 1- 3 glasses per day for the first week. You may increase the number of glasses per day during the first week if you do not notice any side effects. If you do not feel any flu -like symptoms at the end of the first week. move up to strength Level 2 (two). On strength Level 2 (two), drink 1–3 glasses per day for the first week. You may increase the number of glasses per day during the first week if you’re fee ling good. On average, two to three weeks per level
Q: Should pregnant women drink alkaline water
A: We are often asked the question as to whether alkaline, ionized water should be consumed by a pregnant or lactating woman. We believe the prudent approach is to exclude alkaline, ionized water throughout pregnancy and breast feeding. Due to the increased absorption of water-hydrated cations, like potassium and calcium, coupled with the increased concentration of the same cations created on the alkaline side of electrolysis, creates 3 too highly concentrated electrolyte solution for 3 developing fetus and breast-feeding infant. Switch to the purified mode during pregnancy and until breast-feeding is concluded.
Q: How does a water ionizer work?
A: Our MB 2020 Alkaline Ionizer can be directly connected to a diverter valve at the end of your faucet. Connecting directly to your faucet takes about 10-15 minutes and enables your water ionizer to use a two-step process. The first task is to help filter out harmful components of the water with our built- in dual filter system, which removes chlorine, trichloroethane, phenols, sediment, odor, taste, and organic waste. The MB 2020 achieves this by using multi-stage filters. Then the filtered water passes into a patented chamber equipped with platinum-coated titanium plates. Next, an electrical charge is introduced into this water. This is where the electrolysis takes place. The water is separated into two streams (acid and Alkaline) of Ionized water. The acid water (oxidized) makes up about 30% of the water and the Ionized Alkaline Water 70%. The reduced Ionized Alkaline Water comes out of the faucet, which you use for drinking or cooking. The acid (oxidized) water comes out of a separate hose leading into the sink. The oxidation potential of the acid water makes it a good sterilizing agent, ideal for washing your hands, cleaning food or kitchen utensils, and treating minor wounds and eczema. Cations positively charged ions gather at the negative electrode to create Ionized Alkaline Water, which concentrates available Alkaline minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium from the source water. Anions negatively charged ions gather at the positive electrode to make acid or oxidized water, which concentrates acid minerals such as nitrates, sulfides, chlorides, and fluorides from the source water. Remember in chemistry class, opposites attract. A range of pH settings from neutral to very Alkaline or very acid is available at the touch of a button. The electrodes are cleaned in an automatic cleaning cycle or you can also run a manual cleaning cycle. The electrolysis process breaks the molecular bonding of water molecules and restructures the water clusters from usual groups of 12 or so down to about 5 or 6 molecules per water cluster. “Clustered” water is typically characterized by smaller groups of molecules, lower surface tensions and thus can more easily penetrate the cellular membrane. This clean, healthy, Alkaline Ionized Water is drawn for drinking and cooking through the main stainless-steel spout.
Q: How do I know when the filter needs replacing?
A: An LCD or counter indicator on the front panel gives an indication of remaining filter life. Generally, the 1st filter will last for about 6 months, the 2nd filter for about 12months (when 2.5 gallons of water is produced per day), but this depends on the source of water and the amount of use.
Q: What is the warranty?
A: The MB 2020 Alkaline water Ionizer has a 10-year warranty.
