ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
On the labelLabel 1:
Alkalized, Antioxidant Stabilized Negative Ions for Ultra Cellular Hydration. E2- Alkalized Antioxidant Water- Taste and Fee This Difference! Real Water with E2- Electron Energized Technology is the most advanced water available today. Through a proprietary process, Real Water is the only Alkalized, Antioxidant water with stabilized negative ions on the planet! Most bottled water has two major problems: 1) it is acidic and 2) it is positive ionized. According to many nutritionists, an acidic body environment is unhealthy. The opposite is an alkalized body that actually helps to promote better health. Since Real Water is Alkalized, it helps your body become more alkalized to improve your health. The second problem is nearly all water is positive ionized because the water molecules have been stripped of valuable electrons. This causes the water molecules to share electrons and clump together. These clumped molecules are not easily absorbed on a cellular level. With Real Water, the molecules are negatively ionized. the negatively ionized molecules contain free electrons and unclump so that they are quickly on a cellular level. As an added benefit, the free electrons act as an antioxidant to neutralize free radicals. So, to truly hydrate on a cellular level, use Real Alkalized Water. Ingredients: Purified water with trace amounts of magnesium and potassium. No nutritional claims made. Bottled by Affinitylifestyles.com, Inc., Las Vegas, NV 89102.
