The health benefits drinking ionized water include restoring the body's pH balance, acting as an antioxidant and improving cellular hydration through its alkalizing properties. While these statements have not been sanctioned by the FDA of America, as of 2015, the Korean and Japanese Ministries of Health have acknowledged these benefits.
Unhealthy skin and hair, frequent colds, infections and joint pain are commonly associated with maintaining an over-acidic state in the body. Ionization adds negatively charged ions to create an alkaline state; therefore, drinking ionized water restores the body to an alkaline state. Chemists characterize these states as pH balances. A pH over seven is considered acidic.
