What are ORPs?
What are Orps when Referring to Ionized Water?
The element in water that works for or against good health, in addition to the pH of the water which should be between 7.5 and 10.0 , is known as ORP or Oxygen Reduction Potential. There are two types of ORP — negative ORP and positive ORP.
Positive ORP increases oxidation (not wanted in the body) and can lead to free radicals damage to cells. Free radicals, as you may read about, lead to degenerative diseases and other health issues.
What has Positive ORP?
Positive ORP is found in tap water, bottled waters, distilled and reverse osmosis waters as well as cooked and processed foods. Simply put, there is no antioxidant capacity to help the body to neutralize acidity or prevent free radical and oxidative damage to our cells in these types of waters. They have ZERO nutritional value to you other than helping hydrate the body. They do not do what water is really suppose to do for the body.
What are Negative ORP Benefits?
Negative ORP, however, which is produced with ionized alkaline water, severely retards the aging process. By counteracting oxidative damage to our cells. It does this by hunting down free radicals in our system and neutralizing them. Negative ORP is a very powerful anti-oxidant. and is found naturally in orange juice, glacial runoff and deep underground uncontaminated aquifer or spring water.
