Diabetes is a very common chronic disease worldwide. In Malaysia, as announced by the Ministry of Health, 1/3 of the population will develop diabetes by Year 2025.
Diabetes is high levels of blood glucose or blood sugar. Diabetes can cause host of other health complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, blindness, hearing disorders, nerve damage, amputation, erectile dysfunction, cancer and even death! Simply put, too high sugar in the blood corrodes the nerves and tissues!
Drinking Electrolyzed Reduced Water or more commonly known as alkaline ionized water has been clinically proven to prevent and reverse diabetes. In a clinical study by National Center Biotechnology Information NCBI, alkaline ionized water can prevent the onset of Type 1 Diabetes on animals. Another study found that Type 1 & Type 2 diabetes mice had their blood glucose improved after drinking alkaline ionized water. A study further show that the animals fed by alkaline ionized water have lower blood glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides. It is evitable that drinking alkaline water regularly has a real tangible impact on diabetic patients.
In a healthy body, the pancreas produces insulin and the insulin manages and helps the body to use sugar and carbohydrates properly. The pancreas produces one of the highest pH body fluids, pancreatic juice, with a pH value of 8.8. A shortage of calcium ions in the body impairs the production and the release of the insulin hormone. This eventually leads to an acidic blood condition. Clogged blood vessels caused by excess protein build up also impairs pancreatic function. Alkaline ionized water, by supplying calcium in an ionized form and by helping prevent excess protein build up, can help prevent and heal this condition.
Since 2007, scientists discovered that the dissolved molecular hydrogen in alkaline ionized water plays a vital role in prevent and treating diabetes. This is because molecular hydrogen is the most potent antioxidant, it is 88 times smaller than vitamin C and it can cross blood-brain-barrier, it is so tiny that it can enter mitochondria DNA to scavenge the Reactive Oxygen Species that damages cells and DNA. When 80% of the Beta Cells in the pancreas are damaged, it is the onset of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes.
Studies show that H2 water protects Beta cells by preventing ROS generation and is useful in preventing Type 1 diabetes. Studies also indicate that H2 exerts metabolic effects similar to insulin and may be a novel therapeutic alternative to insulin which could aid in Type 1 diabetes management.
A study showed how consumption of H2 water improves blood sugar levels and impaired sugar tolerance. Drinking 2 liters of H2 enriched water per day improved the condition of Type 2 diabetes patients. The improvements are due to the ability of H2 water to attenuate oxidative stress which clearly shows effectiveness in inhibiting diabetes.
Oxidative stress plays a pivotal role in the development of diabetes complications. Studies show that H2 water consumption can improve diabetes and diabetes-associated complications. One study concludes that H2 consumption has therapeutic potential for the treatment of renal dysfunction in patients with Type 2 diabetes. Numerous clinical studies confirmed that drinking hydrogen water decreased cholesterol, normalized glucose tolerance and improved insulin resistance.
As per lecture notes of Dr Mona Harrison, the former director of International Water Council. “Drinking alkaline ionized water is beneficial to all vital organs such as kidneys, heart, lungs, brain, intestines, mucous and skin. These organs are electrolytic membranes and they all needs electrolyzed alkaline water.
13 years ago, VWA Cellular Functional Water System is the first water ionizer in Malaysia that positioned as medical device in Malaysia. The water filter provides not just alkaline water or ionized water; most importantly, it produces the highest antioxidant properties and dissolved hydrogen concentration in the world (1600ppb)! By drinking merely 1.5L VWA hydrogen water, it provides the same antioxidant potency of 1496 apples or 2194 bananas. Antioxidant simply means anti-aging, anti-inflammation and anti-diseases!
Over the last 13 years, countless testimonies from diabetes patients as well as other health disorders were published. VWA water even appeared twice on the headline press in 2 astonishing cancer testimonies.
The best doctor in the world is your own immune system, it helps to fight both infectious diseases and chronic diseases. Indeed, all your body systems needed a right environment so that all the cells can do their works respectively. If the biological terrain is polluted, your immune system can be compromised. 90% of our blood is water. Hence, the choice of our drinking water has direct impact on our health. For the health-conscious family, you need more than just an ordinary water filter, you need the best water ionizer to transform your tap into richest antioxidant water for the health and wellness of your entire family!
