Far Infrared Energy in Alkaline Water
Best to See: Latest Water Ionizers at Amazon
Jupiter is the first to include a BioStone with Tourmaline in their filter — giving you healthy negative ions.
Tourmaline naturally emits far infrared energy ("FIR").
I am convinced Tourmaline with FIR gives the best alkaline water. It helps to strengthen our immune system, energize us, and heighten that feel-good feeling of emotional well-being.
The Filter's BioStone is a ceramic layer formed of the gemstone Tourmaline, which is a group of minerals composed of cyclo-silicates that contain boron. Silicates have negative ions of silicon and oxygen, combined with a metal like calcium or magnesium.
Tourmaline generates negative ions as soon as water makes contact with it. Negative ions are the good ones, they're in the mist from a waterfall. They make us feel good.
Research shows that Tourmaline promotes animal and plant metabolism. It also helps to improve circulation, relieve stress, increase mental alertness and strengthen the immune system (Niwa Institute for Immunology, Japan, Int J. Biometeorol 1993 Sep; 37(3) 133-8).
It has anti-bacterial and deodorant qualities to better purify your water.
Tourmaline water on the skin is moisturizing and better absorbed. We can see how it moisturizes and hydrates our inner cells too.
Even in Filter Only mode, Tourmaline also:
- Enhances the taste of water — it's sweeter tasting,
- Minimizes water odor,
- Increases Dissolved Oxygen, and
- gives the water more negative antioxidant ions, which is a positive for you!
In the ionization chamber, Tourmaline acts like a 'supercharger' enabling the water cells (electrodes) to alkalize quicker, because the water coming in already has extra negative ions. You get more antioxidants with the alkaline water, without an accompanying increase in alkalinity.
Far Infrared Energy (FIR)
Best of all, Tourmaline naturally emits far infrared energy (FIR). This means that even when you select Filter Only mode (or alkaline or acid water) then with FIR:
- the water boosts your metabolism through better conductivity (shuttles molecules along quicker) — this alone gives you more energy;
- the water is 'wetter' and easier for your cells to absorb, because FIR reduces water cluster size and changes the surface tension of water (surfectant effect) which tension is closer to plant juices than common water;
- the water is 'warmer' from the FIR energy, we know that FIR opens up blocked capillaries and improves blood circulation;
- the water is 'activated' through the resonance phenomenon, and when it touches the water layers surrounding proteins, they in turn resonate together, protecting the proteins from invading bacteria and helping life enzymes to stay active. Every protein is encircled by three layers of water, and FIR water gives these layers a tighter integrity, through resonance.
Drink FIR Water for Energy
What is resonance absorption? It means when wave A meets fellow wave B traveling at a similar wavelength (the distance between crests) and similar frequency (the number of crests that go by per second) then wave A gets absorbed into B and amplifies B, making it a stronger wave with stronger integrity. It's harder now for anything to break into the wave.
The natural wavelength of water molecules, and of organic matter (which is mostly water) and FIR, is 8 to 14 microns. When water and living proteins absorb FIR of 8 to 14 micron wavelength, they experience resonance absorption. Their molecules vibrate more energetically, and this extra energy:
- strengthens the integrity of proteins — gives them stand-alone power,
- fuels cell activities, and
- boosts metabolism.
- It's invigorating!
Normally the chemical reactions of our enzymes are "pushed" by ATP, an energy molecule we make from the carbohydrates we eat (see How We Get Energy from Food). Now it's clear the very water we drink can charge our enzymes up, give them more energy to perform their work.
Sang Whang writes in Reverse Aging:
"FIR wave frequencies are in the same range of the natural resonant frequencies of molecules of water and organic substances [like proteins] so the latter absorb energy easily from the FIR wave, and become the radiator of the frequency as well as the receiver.
FIR waves are the safest and the most beneficial electromagnetic energy sources available."
Properties of FIR
Far Infrared Energy has three properties: radiation, deep penetration, and resonance absorption.
Radiation — means it reaches your cells directly just as light does. This is a plus — for years I've used the Tri-Lite photo therapy unit from Light Energy Company, with its red LED's (light-emitting diodes) to speed up healing of cuts and burns, and for acupressure. Red light speeds up the repair process (e.g. gives energy to the DNA to make proteins faster) quicker than any molecule of matter can reach the injury site. Very often, with severed or clogged capillaries, molecules can't get through at all. But radiation — electromagnetic energy — can.
Deep Penetration — means FIR reaches well into subcutaneous layers of the body, generating internal warmth that activates the molecules in living tissue. This applies to FIR clothing too, e.g. I often wear a FIR glove and wrist-band at night to improve blood flow in my finger joints and carpal tunnel, after a long day typing.
Resonance Absorption — means that the molecules of living tissue absorb the FIR energy.
"A married couple sleeping together lives long ... while sleeping, they act as transmitters and receivers of FIR waves to each other."
I guess that's true of my dog Scooby and cat Peaches too? We all sleep together in my bedroom.
So far as I know, no other ionizers have BioStone with Tourmaline, it's unique to the Jupiter models.
