This post will explore the topic of ions in water. Water dissolves minerals as it runs in a stream in nature. Therefore, water contains minerals while being clear in appearance. These minerals are called ions and they have a charge.
Some examples of ions in water are: Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium, Chloride and Sulfide. The mineral composition of water will differ depending on the source or where it is found.
Civilizations that get their water from snow caps of mountains are usually drinking highly structured and ionized water because of the snow-freezing process that produces glacial ice.
Some types of ions make water structure stronger and other types weaken it. Strengthening ions include: Calcium, Lithium, Sodium, Zinc, Iron, Copper, Silver and Nickel.
Ions that break down structure of water include: Magnesium, Potassium, Rubidium, Aluminum, Chloride, Bromide, Fluoride and Iodide.
How do we know if certain ions hold or break structure? The answer is found in the way they interact with the water molecule and the ions’ dimensions. Water forms hydration layers around ions.
Two other substances, Vitamin C and Germanium, also structure water. Distillation would remove both structuring and de-structuring minerals from water. So water maintains its best probable structure when ions are left in the water.
