Electrochemically reduced water (ERW)

Alkaline ionized water generated by water electrolysis has constantly received increasing attention due to benefits in treatment and prevention of diseases. Electrolysis of slightly salt water or tap water produces a special water very useful and known as functional electrolyzed water. Various types of functional water can be produced depending on conditions of electrolysis, and these types of water are classified into two major categories. One is functional electrolyzed acidic water, which is generated at the anode; the other one, generated at the cathode, is electrolyzed alkaline water. Both, depending on their properties, are widely used in medical, cosmetic and technical fields.

In Japan, research on functional water, especially on electrochemically reduced water (ERW) also known as electrochemically reduced alkaline water (ERAW), is developing at a rapid pace.

Studies on the functions of ERW were initiated in Japan in the 40’s and its application to agriculture was first attempted in 1954. Six years later, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan, admitted ERW as effective for human health against various diseases (external & internal) and authorized ERW producing devices as Medical Device. Korean Food & Drug Administration (KFDA) followed a few years later. Today fast accumulating evidences demonstrate how ERW is health beneficial and active in suppressing oxidative stress-related diseases.     

 

Advanced Water S-100

ADWATIS SA offers a new generation of ionized water called Advanced Water:

  • Unique, 100% safe and non-chemical electrolytic reduced ionized water.
  • Strong efficacy thanks to high pH with unique properties.
  • Environmentally friendly and non toxic.

Electrolyzed deoxidized and ionized water S-100 is made out of innovative electrolytic patented process as well as longstanding expertise and know-how. It has a pH of 12 or about 100’000 times more negative ions than normal water (approx. pH 7). S-100 water has unique properties of a strong “alkali” water, like sodium hydroxide (NaOH) or potassium hydroxide (KOH), but without any toxicity and harmful chemistry. S-100 Water is 100% safe, stable and effective for 3-4 years. It can be diluted with water or mixed with other chemicals while maintaining ionic properties (except organic acids).

Advanced Water S-100 Ionic power : the mechanisms of action

The basic principle

S-100 Water contains negative ions OH-. Once in contact with any kind of surface, material, particles, water ions interact by reorganizing electric charges. The surface remains polarized and actively prevents from any future building up of foreign particles. ("Double electric layer" theory.)

The exfoliation power

Advanced Water S-100, with its army of negatively charged ions, penetrates, encapsulates all kind of particles such as atoms, molecules, mico-organisms, molds and removes them by repulsion effect (due to same polarity) from all kind of even or uneven microscopic surfaces. Isolated particles and pollutants are easily removed by rinsing. In case of cosmetic / dermal applications, the same mechanism happens: e.g. for skin cleansing where ionic work force interacts between lipids (sebum) and skin producing a so-called peeling effect.

Anti-microbial power (removes & kills bacteria & viruses)


     

In case of surface bacterial contamination such as E-coli, the ionization process of S-100 Water quickly polarizes and dislodges the pathogen. Bacteria outer membrane is dissolved by ions force, leading rapidly to the destruction of the cell nucleus, eliminating any chance of re-contamination by injured bacteria.

 

Emulsification power

Dispersion of micro-particles of oil in water (10m or less) thanks to negative ions repulsion process.
No need of emulsifier/solubilizer or surfactant for oil in water mixing.

 

100% Safe & non toxic

Advanced Water S-100 and its derivatives GE-100 and CC6 easily penetrates the different layers of the skin and protects the cell membrane protein, unlike surfactants or alcohol which denature and dissolve the cell membrane.

Water, the chemistry of life

If you thought water was a simple, innocent molecule, think again. Water is from far one of the most fascinating substance on our planet. Water remains one the major mysteries of the Universe. It supports life like no other substance does as chemical reactions in all plants and animals take place in water medium, releasing or consuming water in their metabolism. Life on Earth totally depends on water as living organisms are largely composed of water – about 70 to 90 percent by weight, and above 99 percent by absolute number of water molecules.

Water is vital both as a solvent in which many of the body's solutes dissolve and as an essential part of many metabolic life processes. Without water, these particular metabolic processes could not exist. Most of chemical reactions occur in the cell itself. Water plays a central role in biological and chemical, especially acid-base, processes. Equally important to our comprehension of the structure and dynamics of water is understanding the role it plays as a solvent facilitating long-ranged charge transport of species such as ions, excess protons and hydroxide ions. The excess proton and hydroxide ion, both particularly important in acid-base chemistry and bio-molecular function, plays an important role in the metabolism of all organisms as reflected by the wide variety of chemical reactions in which they take part. Ions are cofactors of enzymes, catalyzing basic functions such as electron transport, redox reactions, and energy metabolism; they are essential for maintaining the osmotic pressure of cells too.

Water, the universal solvent

Water is often referred to as the universal, superb solvent. Mainly due to the marked polarity of the water molecule and its tendency to form hydrogen bonds with other molecules. All of the components in cells (proteins, DNA and polysaccharides) are dissolved in water deriving their structure and activity from their interactions with water. Water dissolves more substances in greater quantities than any other common liquid making water key important in chemical, physical and biological processes.

 

 

Oxidation-reduction reactions

Basically, reduction means the addition of an election (e-), and its converse, oxidation means the removal of an electron. The addition of an electron, stores energy in the reduced compound. The removal of an electron, liberates energy from the oxidized compound. Whenever one substance is reduced, another is oxidized. In biological systems, removal or addition of an electron constitutes the most frequent mechanism of oxidation-reduction reactions, frequently called redox reactions.

 

Water is an acid and a base

Water can be both an acid and a base, depending on how you look at it. Water can even react with itself to form acid and bases. It happens in really small amounts; chemists have determined the concentration of H3O+ at 25°C as being very low: only a few molecules per billion will be dissociated. Dissociation of water forms an acid that increases the concentration of hydrogen ions (hydronium H3O+ also known as hydrated H+) and a base that increases the concentration of hydroxide ions (OH-). This can be amplified by using electrolysis process to drive an otherwise non-spontaneous chemical reaction.

The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution is measured in terms of a value known as pH, which is the negative logarithm of the concentration of hydrogen ions. Scientists have defined a pH scale which ranges from 0 on the acidic end to 14 on the alkaline end, a neutral solution being at pH 7. At pH 7 water contains equal concentrations of H+ and OH- ions. Substances with pH higher than 7 are alkaline as having a higher concentration of OH- than H+ and vice versa for acidic substance with pH lower than 7 containing a higher concentration of H+ than OH-. The pH scale is a log scale so a change of 1 pH units means a tenfold change in the concentration of hydrogen ions.
