Water Ionizer Benefits

Electrically charged water occurs in nature, and can be measured by a milli-volt meter. But this "charge" can be lost during treatment, storage and delivery of drinking water. Water ionizers work to replace this missing natural charge, that allows water to carry, and deliver alkaline minerals in drinking water.
