Free Radicals

So-called “Free Radicals” describe atoms or molecules with at least one unpaired electron. These ions are volatile and aggressive and they accordingly have negative effects on the human body. Free radicals result from metabolic processes in the mitochondria and also from other influences:

  • UV radiation
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Stress
  • X-rays and other rays
  • Smog and vehicle exhaust
  • Contaminated water
  • Certain medicines
  • Burned fat calories
Free radicals attempt to reach a stable state by obtaining another electron. Healthy cells are damaged through this process and sometimes killed.
The resulting negative effects on one’s health are considerable:
  • A weakened immune system, heart and circulatory problems, and cancer are just some of the illnesses that can result from the effect of free radicals
  • The aging process is also accelerated by free radicals
The body needs sophisticated mechanisms of defense to avoid and contain the damages of free radicals. The necessary ions that neutralize free radicals are not readily available, though, and are actually limited. And the less of these radical-neutralizers that are on hand, the greater the potential for harm to the body. The inverse is also true, however: a reduction in free radicals leads to a decrease in lifestyle diseases. And so we must ask: “How can the number of free radicals be reduced?

With Alkaline Ionized Water and its strong redox potential (a high capacity to give off electrons) you can neutralize free radicals daily.

The fountain of youth for your health, vitality, lifestyle.
