Which salt should I add to my water ionizer?


Which salt should I add to my salt shaft in my water ionizer to have the redox potential boosted optimally?

  • Whilst producing alkaline activated water you should ask yourself if you really want that. Except for people who have an extremely poor sodium diet, most of us have a sodium excess from their diet. So why add sodium chloride (salt) to the water?
  • Please also check beforehand if your drinking water provider doesn’t use an ion exchanger, which changes sodium for calcium ions, to make the water softer. Also a glance at the drinking water analysis of your water provider wont harm at all. Is there already more than 50 mg/l of sodium in the water? If that is the case, then the activated alkaline water will not really taste good with the salt addition.
  • In most cases the salt addition only to create acidic, hygienic Function water (Anolyte) is useful, which is not apt for drinking. Also you don’t need a special salt. Table salt, bath salt, mill salt or sea salt is enough. Chloride is in everything and after electrolysis works as a strong hypochloride acid which disinfects. It would be senseless to waste gourmet salts like Fleur du Sel or Himalaya salt on this.

About Karl Heinz Asenbaum

The Munich-based journalist has been working on the topic of "alkaline activated water" since 2004. For 12 years he worked closely with the alternative physician Dr. Walter Irlacher, with whom he wrote two successful books: "Service Manual for Humans” (Service Handbuch Mensch) (2006) and "Drink Yourself Alkaline” (Trink Dich basisch) (2008,2011). Since 2014 he has been contributing his knowledge and experience to Aquacentrum and giving lectures worldwide. “Electro-activated Water", the world's most comprehensive book on the subject, was published in 2016. View all faqs by Karl Heinz Asenbaum
