Hydration Handbook: Water Categorisation for Optimal Wellness

Hydration Handbook: Water Categorisation for Optimal Wellness

Hydrate or perish. Water isn't just a thirst quencher; it's the MVP for your well-being. From body temperature control to warding off infections, nutrient distribution to joint smoothness – it's the unsung hero keeping our organs in harmony. Despite this, understanding water categorisation can be like navigating a maze. Purified, distilled, mineral – what's the deal?


Purified water isn't just a label; it's a spa day for your water. Bacteria, algae, fungi, parasites, metals – consider them evicted. Lead and copper might sneak into your sip, but an effective water purification system kicks them to the curb. Taste the difference, literally.


Distilled water is like purified water's VIP cousin. Boil, steam, cool –impurities are gone, no more bacteria, viruses, or unwanted chemicals. But it's not all sunshine. Distillation's thorough sweep also removes natural minerals and electrolytes. 


Mineral water is a mineral-rich cocktail. Water from fresh mineral springs includes dissolved gases and minerals like calcium carbonate, potassium and sodium sulfate. You can prepare your own mineral water by adding salts and minerals to filtered water or through aeration (aeration removes the undesirable substances). Your bones, muscles, and heart will thank you for the VIP treatment. 


In the context of ionza, we’re passionate about ionized and nutrient-rich water. Let’s unlock the marvels of both


Ionization involves the separation of water molecules into positively and negatively charged ions. The result? Alkaline water with a higher pH level than regular tap water.


Ionized water delivers various health benefits due to its antioxidant properties that neutralize free radicals in the body. The alkaline nature of ionized water counterbalances the acidic nature of certain foods, promoting a more alkaline environment which supports overall health and well-being.


Hydrogen-rich water is infused with molecular hydrogen, the universe's smallest and most abundant molecule.


Hydrogen is known for its antioxidant properties, which can selectively neutralize harmful free radicals. Some studies suggest that regular consumption of hydrogen-rich water can contribute to improved athletic performance, enhanced recovery and even potential anti-ageing effects.


Remember, water isn't just a life essential; it's the maestro orchestrating bodily harmony.
