What’s an alkalizer?

An alkalizer is a device that reduces water acidity by passing it through a carbon filter and ionizing it. It is connected to a faucet and is believed to provide health benefits. However, compatibility with other water treatment systems should be considered, and some scientists question the benefits.

An alkalizer is a device that serves to reduce the acidity in water, then bringing it slightly to the other side of the scale, making it a little on the basic side. An alkalizer is usually connected to a faucet that supplies tap water, most commonly to the kitchen, from which the vast majority of water for cooking and drinking is taken. Many companies sell these devices and they are also readily available to order online.

Most units work the same way, through a multi-step process. First, the water goes through a carbon filter to help remove any impurities. Then, it is ionized by passing over the positive and negative electrodes. This is what alkaline water is thought to produce. An alkalizer is also thought to break down mineral clumps in water, thus providing better hydration.

For those who have other water treatment systems connected to their water supply, it is best to seek advice before using an alkalizer. Some systems may not be compatible with all devices and may neutralize any benefits they may otherwise provide. For example, a reverse osmosis system and an alkalizer should not be used together. This is because the device uses the minerals in the water to help produce the desired effects. Reverse osmosis systems, as well as stills, take away the vast majority of these minerals.

Those who promote alkalizers and other alkaline water products also point to a number of other health benefits that water is supposed to provide. These include digestive problems and respiratory problems such as asthma. Alkaline drinking water is thought to produce these benefits by helping restore natural chemical balances in the body.

While it is possible to obtain alkaline drinking water through a number of different sources, alkalizing may be the most common and cheapest way to obtain alkaline water. First, the system can be used to produce many liters of water. Plus, with replaceable cartridges and other parts, the device can be used many times before it reaches the end of its useful life.

While there may be some benefits to using these devices, some scientists believe those benefits are overstated. For example, they say that water is not conductive enough to be affected by flowing it over the electrodes. Furthermore, they argue that any alkalinity in the water would be more than washed out by the natural acidity of the stomach.
