With every change in our lives the naysayers line up to convince you that you are on the wrong track. If pure logic doesn’t work, guilt comes second. Here’s a post I got from a guy who works for (I assume) Life ionizers, sellers of a Korean assembled electric ionizer:
He was referring to the imminent release of our new Ultrastream non-electric water ionizer’s use of magnesium to ionize output water.
“Magnesium doesn’t provide a proton donor in alkaline water, It is balanced by a hydroxyl ion. Magnesium hydrate in alkaline water is: Mg++(aq) + OH-(aq) = Mg2OH(aq) + H2O.
You cannot produce a proton donor in alkaline water. You need an acid – like Ascorbic Acid – to donate a proton to the reaction.
Pseudoscience hurts the alkaline water industry. (Ian: The guilt card) Please read the Japanese antioxidant studies carefully. Those studies make it clear that you must have a proton donor to unlock the antioxidant effect of alkaline water.”
I sent Leo an emailed response, but never heard from him again. Here’s our reply:
