Improve Your Water, Improve Your Life

Most babies are born healthy, hydrated and alkaline. As we age our bodies often become more toxic and acidic.

Transform ordinary water in just minutes

Now you can transform ordinary tap water into alkaline water fast! Just add water to the Healthy Habits® IonPod® to raise the pH and lower the ORP in less than five minutes—all without electricity and bulky, expensive machines.  It’s easy to use and easy to maintain. You can use it to alkalize hot, cold or room temperature water safely.

The Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) is a measurement of oxidizing agents in drinking water. A positive ORP indicates oxidation, like rust on metal (aging/deteriorating) potential whereas a negative ORP indicates antioxidant (anti-aging/beneficial) potential. Tap water, many bottled waters and other beverages have a positive ORP.

IonPod® water has a negative (up to -153) ORP after about  five minutes, which means your drinking water now offers powerful antioxidant benefits.

  • Creates silky smooth, fresh tasting water in minutes
  • Increases hydration
  • Alkalizes pH by up to 2000
  • Generates negative ORP antioxidant water
  • Contains silver spheres
  • Purge your body of toxins & acids
  • Reusable stainless steel construction
  • You can drink straight from it
  • Take it with you on the go
  • Use it daily & watch your acid levels drop
  • Alkalize & energize ordinary water or purified water

The Healthy Habits® IonPod® contains two proprietary mineral pods which are the secret behind the transformation. This state-of-the-art technology utilizes the minerals in tourmaline, maifanshi, zeolite and nano-silver to enhance, purify and ionize the water, while raising the pH to an optimal level, for improved hydration, detoxification and protection of your cells.

The IonPod® is portable and lightweight (less than 15 ounces), and is made using high quality stainless steel. It holds up to 13 ounces of water. The bulky water alkalizing machines cost up to $4000. Save a fortune and get the original alkalizing water bottle– The IonPod® exclusively from Healthy Habits®.

Want to see how acidity is affecting you? Use the pH Test Strips from Healthy Habits®. Test your urine and use another strip to test your saliva (nothing in your mouth for 30 minutes prior to testing). Test both urine and saliva at the same time of day.

pH Rules:

  • Urine pH should be between 6.0 and 6.5
  • Saliva pH should be between 6.5 and 6.8 (nothing in mouth)
  • Saliva pH should not be lower than urine pH
  • The total of urine pH and saliva pH should be close to 12.8

    “I have been using the IonPod for three weeks and noticed within days an improvement in my digestive problems that I have had for about 40 years. My husband has also been using the IonPod and has had to cut down on his insulin at night.” –Norma, CA

  2. Rating by Joy on January 9, 2019 :

    “I have tried many different ionizing contraptions in the past. All of them work but the water they created always tasted terrible. I like the IonPod because it’s affordable, it works and the water tastes great. I prefer the taste of IonPod water over regular water because it is so refreshing.” –Loraine, MI

  3. Rating by Joy on January 9, 2019 :

    “I love the IonPod. I am a diabetic, so I am very concerned about what goes into my body. Since I have been drinking from the IonPod I have much more energy. This works better for me than my sister’s $4000 water ionizing machine. I recommend the IonPod to all of my friends and family.” –Glendora, TX

  4. Rating by Joy on January 9, 2019 :

    “I had terrible swelling in my ankle. I have been drinking the IonPod alkaline water for a few weeks now. The swelling in my ankle is now gone. I can’t tell you how much of a relief it is to not have that swollen ankle anymore.” –Vicki, MA

  5. Rating by Joy on January 9, 2019 :

    “I used to test my urine pH everyday on awakening. I used baking soda in my water to keep a good pH. I now use my IonPod all day and still keep a good pH. The water tastes better and I feel better about not putting so much sodium in my system.” –Rose, IL

IonPod® Q & A

Q: Is there a mineral insert to purchase separately?
A: The initial upper Mineral Pod comes with the IonPod®. This Mineral Pod will last at least 6-12 months depending upon use. We encourage purchasing a replacement after 12 months, or when the water starts testing weak, whichever comes first. The replacement Mineral Pod is only $19.95 and may be ordered at any time. This is the top filter in the IonPod® which may be removed by pulling the handle. Use this path to order the IonPod® Refill Mineral Pod: > SHOP > Product List > IonPod Refill Pod

Q: How large is the IonPod®?
A: It is a stainless steel water bottle designed to be carried with you wherever you go. It weighs 14.6 oz. It is 2-5/8″ diameter and 7-7/8″ high. It holds 11 oz. water. Allow up to 10 minutes for it to work its water magic. It will continue to treat the water.

Q: How does it work?
A: The internal mineral pods at the top and the bottom of the IonPod® are responsible for the beneficial effects. The Healthy Habits IonPod® can transform ordinary water to alkaline water without electrification at anywhere any time desired by utilizing new materials and technologies. The core component of the IonPod® is a mineral pod consisting of state-of-the-art material designed for optimal water treatment. Formed under high temperature by melting and conjugating effective ingredients from high-energy biochemical ceramics and pumice mineral stone with potent rare earth, the IonPod® is highly catalyst-sensitive and capable of rapidly ionizing and alkalizing water. Tourmaline – helps reduce surface tension – provides FIR & ionization; Zeolite – absorbs and retains heavy metals and toxins; Maifanshi – absorbs toxins and supplies trace minerals; Additional Proprietary Ionic Mineral Blend – cleans, mineralizes and ionizes the water. The Healthy Habits IonPod® is a revolutionary device.*

Q: What are some of the minerals in the IonPod® mineral pods and why are they used?
A: Tourmaline — A complex silicate mineral material with natural electric properties. The electricity carried by tourmaline is static direct current. Tourmaline is a polar crystal; it produces a positive electrode at one end and a negative electrode at the other end, naturally and eternally. The positive electrode and negative electrodes are usually in an unsteady state, which produces the electric potential. It is because of this electrical potential that tourmaline has static electricity. This current is only 0.06 mA, which approximates the bio-current of our body. This is extremely important to human movement, since the 0.06 mA bio-electricity supports our health. Tourmaline starts to ionize water immediately and helps to create an alkaline nature. Alkaline water will detoxify the active oxygen radicals; activate cells to support normal metabolism; assist to purify the blood; relieve fatigue; help balance the nervous system; support healthy immunity and nervous conditions; support allergy immunity; help prevent premature aging and promote health. Tourmaline radiates far-infrared energy with a wavelength of 4-14 micron. This far-infrared energy is called “The Light of Life” and matches the far-infrared wave of the body, thus supporting proper micro-circulation of blood and nutrients.*

Maifanshi — A mineral rich in porphyritic pea gravel. In Asia, Maifanshi has traditionally been used for bathing due to its ability to absorb toxins and supply immense trace minerals. Maifanshi helps to ionize, clean and mineralize water.*

Zeolite — In China, this stone is referred to as the “cell cleaner.” As a natural mineral, xeolite is mainly composed of silicic acid, iron, calcium, manganese, magnesium and other minerals. Water is the foundation of health and the lifeline of food and beverages. Zeolite is an ideal water purifier due to its intensive absorption to heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, hydrargyrum, arsenic and hexavalent chrome. Zeolite has the ability to absorb unfavorable materials. Long-term drinking can support healthy detox, regulate a healthy metabolism and support healthy blood circulation. This stone promotes urination, supports stomach function and liver protection. Zeolite is a mineral group having a four-sided honeycomb structure and a negative magnetic charge. This allows Zeolite to attract heavy metals and toxins and permanently absorb them. Zeolite absorbs carcinogens, free radicals, heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, viral particles and other positively-charged toxins.*

Nano-Silver — Nano-Silver supports healthy epithelial cells. When exposed to water it enhances and improves water quality.*

Mineral Pod Mix — The above elements and the rest of the proprietary mineral mix has the effect of adjusting the water pH value and conductivity of water to make the water be more alkaline. It also reduces the water molecular chain to form small clusters of water (microwater), which improves its penetrability, solubility and diffusion. This increases cellular efficiency and metabolism by increasing the exchange of water inside and outside the cell membrane. It creates a favorable environment for the excretion of injurious acid metabolites and waste, which promotes greater immunity and longevity.*

Q Is the IonPod® just as effective on distilled water or reverse osmosis water or soft water as on tap water?
A: The IonPod® may be used with any type of water. Distilled water will take longer to treat due to its lack of minerals and acidity. You should never drink soft water, no matter if in IonPod® or from the tap. It is our opinion that no one should drink tap water, but treating it with the IonPod® is certainly a much better option than drinking from the tap.*

Q: How do I use the IonPod®?
A: Simply pour regular or purified water into it, wait at least 2 minutes and drink as desired. Depending upon your source water it may take 5-10 minutes to generate the positive pH and negative ORP desired. The change is exponential with time. It also helps speed up the process if you fill the IonPod® just barely over the top filter so there is room for the water to move through the filters when turned upside down a few times.*

Q: Can I use my IonPod® to treat the water and then pour the treated water into another container for storage?
A: Yes, but you will lose the anti-aging, anti-oxidant (low ORP) quality of the water with 24 hours. The alkaline pH will remain if you store the water in glass and away from light. This is why you cannot go to the store and purchase high-quality anti-oxidant water. The low ORP is very sensitive to light, motion and air. Thus, the IonPod® has great value to create and store anti-aging water. You are well advised to purchase several IonPods® and store your drinking water in them for future use. The water gets stronger with a longer storage time.

Q: How long do I need to let the water sit in the IonPod® before attempting the experiments in the User Manual?
A: It depends upon the water source you are using, but an hour is a good place to start. It will takes less time if you oscillate the IonPod® , allowing the water to flow through both the top & bottom mineral pods several times. It must be remembered that the experiments require a very Low ORP and a high pH, so the longer the water sits in the IonPod®, the better the experiments will work. This is again evidence of how important it is for you to have several IonPods® storing your water so it has the maximum treatment when it is time for you to consume the water.

Q: How much IonPod® water should be consumed daily?
A: An average adult body in a sedentary condition is designed to take around 64 oz water per day or one can follow the formula of 1 oz. water per 2 lbs. body weight. Those with health issues should gradually increase the volume. Do not suddenly start drinking this much water daily if you are not accustomed to it. Also, consult your doctor. You could have health issues at odds with sudden increased water intake.

My best times to drink water:

  • After morning awakening on empty stomach
  • 10 AM
  • 3 PM
  • 1 hour before sleep
  • Do not wait until you feel thirsty. Drink whenever you can.
  • Drinking small amounts often is more efficient for the body.

My personal water formula:

  • Divide weight by 2 (i.e., 120/2=60).
  • Water requirement is 60 oz daily.
  • Divide weight by 40 (i.e., 120/40=3).
  • Water dose is 3 oz.
  • Daily water formula is 60 oz daily, no more than 3 oz at one dose.
  • Note that this water formula should not all be consumed as IonPod® water. Follow the rules under the CAUTION category regarding IonPod® water.*

Q:  Are there certain minerals that are increased by the action of the IonPod® on water?
A: Yes. Alkaline minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium and Potassium are increased. Magnesium is a natural tranquilizer. It is often referred to as the “anti-stress” mineral. It is effective in relaxing nerves, relieving tension, assisting digestion, activating enzymes important for protein and carbohydrate metabolism and modulating the electrical potential across cell membranes. Magnesium is helpful for the production and transfer of energy, muscle contraction and nerve conduction. Magnesium induces restful sleep, purifies and purges body tissues and can lower a fever. Magnesium stored in the bowel, nerves and ligaments is necessary to keep vertebrae properly positioned. Green vegetables and chlorophyll also contain large amounts of magnesium.*

Q: Why does the pH of the tap water and the pH of the IonPod® water, the same? Is my IonPod® not working?
A: It sounds like you are using the wrong test strips or reagent to test the water. You cannot use all pH test strips on water. You must use the liquid pH reagent that is designed for water testing or the special Healthy Habits pH strips that are designed for urine & saliva & water. The test result you are presently reading is bogus if you are using strips not designed for water testing.*

Q: Where can I get the correct pH reagent to test my IonPod® water?
A: The correct pH strips are now available from Healthy Habits since many of you live in areas where pools are not common. Those of you who have ready access to pool supply stores should purchase the liquid pH reagent that measures approximately 5.0 – 10.0 or use the special pH strips from Healthy Habits. NOTE: If the pH strips that come from Healthy Habits do NOT specifically say for water & urine & saliva, then they are NOT for water testing.*

Q: Does the IonPod® remove chlorine?
A: No. The IonPod® does not remove chlorine. The proprietary mineral pod mix alkalizes the pH, lowers the ORP of the water and imparts far-infrared energy (FIR) to the water. The nano-silver provides anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties.*

Q: What if I drink my water 12 oz. at a time instead of, for example, 5 oz. 18 times daily?
A: The body is designed to handle a limited quantity of water in a short period of time. The personal water formula was developed to help you get as close to that optimum water absorption as possible. When you drink excess water in a short period of time, it is simply eliminated by the kidneys and you end up making endless trips to the bathroom. This usually happens anyway during the first few days of increased water consumption as the body slowly adjusts to your new regimen.*

Q: You say not to drink tap water. However, what if my tap water is from a dug well and it is clean? My well water goes through three commercial-type filters to remove iron, sediment, etc. and I have a sink filter as well. Can I drink that water? Can I put it into the IonPod® for drinking?
A: Sounds like you have good water. Yes, you should put it into the IonPod®.

Q: Have you heard of John Ellis water? It is a special distilled process whereby the water comes out full of oxygen and electrons. I use it mixed with tap water and then into the IonPod®. I did the vegetable oil test and the IonPod® water does what you say it does. My question is would the John Ellis water cause any problems using it in the IonPod®?
A: No problem with using that water but we encourage you to use BioVitale-H20® instead. This is available from: Using BioVitale-H20® with IonPod® water is the absolute best way to destroy any disease marker plus gain the benefits of high alkaline, low ORP water!*

Q: We are considering some IonPods® but need to know if the minerals in the container are tested for purity?
A: Yes, we periodically send samples of the water from the IonPod® batch to an independent lab to make sure that the water meets federal standards for drinking water.*

Q: Why doesn’t the bottom mineral cartridge need to be replaced?
A: The bottom mineral cartridge is difficult to access. We decided to extend indefinitely the life of your IonPod® by allowing you to easily replace the upper mineral cartridge. By replacing the top mineral cartridge, it should be years before the bottom mineral cartridge becomes totally depleted. Only when your water doesn’t test correctly even with a new upper mineral cartridge do you need to consider discarding your IonPod®.*

Q: Why are there magnets in the top and bottom of the IonPod®?
A: Magnets are in the IonPod® because, just like the Earth is a magnet, with N & S poles which helps keep the water flowing around the planet, the magnets are in the IonPod® to help with the transformation and movement of the water especially when it is sitting still and the water is not flowing over the minerals.*

Q: If I freeze IonPod® water, will the pH hold?
A: Yes, it will. We have not tested to see if the ORP will hold. When we do that, we will post the results here.*

Q: How do I best store and dry the mineral inserts inside the IonPod® if I am not going to be using it for a while?
A: Make sure all water has been removed from the IonPod®. Leave the cap off, remove the top mineral pod and let everything air dry. You may then replace the cap and store the IonPod® wherever you like. Some have asked about dishwasher. Yes, you may place the IonPod® upside down in upper dishwasher tray for cleaning. DO NOT USE SOAP!*

Q: Where can I find the pH reagent mentioned in the potency experiments? By the way, today I started to drink IonPod® water for the first time. I did the pH test of my urine before drinking IonPod® water, and the result was extremely acidic (the lowest end of spectrum). I haven’t done the saliva test yet.
A: The correct water testing pH strips will soon be available from Healthy Habits since many of you live in areas where pools are not common. The liquid reagent is also available from Healthy Habits. Your Urine pH appears to be very acid. You should always do your Saliva pH at the same because what they are together at the same time can tell you a lot about your state of health. For more information on this see the online IonPod® Manual.*

Q: Someone told me water alkalizers are like snake oil and are actually harmful long term. This persons mother had one of the expensive counter top units and was drinking the water daily and developed osteoporosis.
A: This person misunderstands the basics. The reason why we encourage you to continually monitor your urine pH and saliva pH is to make sure that you are not getting too much of a good thing, i.e., pushing both your urine pH and saliva pH too alkaline. When you see this, you simply cut back on the IonPod® water. Simple as that. Regarding this person’s mother, how long was she excessively acid? Drinking alkalized water, even for several months is not going to completely reverse the effects of years of excess acidity which is responsible for osteoporosis. This is just common sense. Depending upon your age, it may take years of consuming alkaline water to reverse the damaging effects of excess acidity. The point is to “start now” while you still the opportunity to do something about it.*

Q: Apparently, if you use alkalized water on plants it will kill them and if you try to give it to your dog or cat eventually they will not drink it. I am just curious and it seems like just about anything out there has two sides to it. I am wondering if long-term it is going to cause an issue. What are your thoughts on this?
A: Alkalized water is for humans and animals. We have never mentioned anything about giving it to plants. Regarding cats & dogs, they will almost always choose alkalized water, if given a choice. Later, when/if they stop choosing it, it is likely because they innately know that they no longer need it. In some ways, it would be nice if we had the ability to listen to our body as do animals. Excess alkalinity can cause issues in the long-term, but, given the toxic, radioactive state of affairs in our current environment, it is difficult to achieve this “too much of a good thing” status. Nevertheless, this is why we encourage everyone to continually monitor the urine pH and saliva pH.*

Q: How do you test the water to verify that it’s 8.5 to 9.5? One of the local health food stores that produce alkaline water says you CANNOT use their urine and saliva strips. They used some type of drop.
A: They probably cannot use the pH strips that they have available. Healthy Habits® is now shipping German-made pH strips with the IonPod® that can be used to test water. You will know this because the strips specifically state for use with water. If you do not have the strips, they are now available as a separate item from Healthy Habits®. The pH reagent is also available if you would rather use it. Personally, I prefer the pH reagent. It works instantly versus the strips which can take up to 2 minutes to change color when used to test water. The strips are great for testing urine and saliva due to almost instant color change due to urine/saliva both being a “buffered” solution.*

Q: How long is too long to leave water in the IonPod®?
A: There is no too long. The water simply continues to be treated which means that some people may not like the slight hydrogen peroxide taste that an extremely alkaline, low ORP water may have, but not always.*

Q: Can I store my IonPod® water in the refrigerator?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I over alkalize my body?
A: Certainly. This is why we urge everyone to periodically test their urine pH and saliva pH. Guidelines are listed above. If you are overly alkaline, it is a good idea to reduce your intake of alkaline water until your urine comes back to the 6.0 – 6.5 range.

Q: What is best way to store the IonPod® when not in use?
A: You may store the IonPod® upside down with cap off. I always keep them in the refrigerator full of water. I love drinking water that has been stored in the IonPod® for several days.

Q: Is it OK to refrigerate the top mineral pod?
A: Yes.

Q: How many glasses of water can the IonPod® be expected to make before needing to replace the top mineral pod?
A: With normal use, the top mineral pod should last 6 – 12 months. You can easily tell when it is time to replace by using the liquid pH reagent to test the water after it has been in the IonPod® for 15 minutes. If the water does not test at least 8.0, then it is time to replace the top mineral pod. An easier way is to simply replace the top mineral pod every 6-12 months.

Q: I have read that silver can turn a person’s skin a blue or gray color. I see you have silver in the IonPod® mineral cartridge. Will that happen to someone drinking IonPod® water?
A: That is a possibility for someone over consuming colloidal silver but it is rare. IonPod® water is not colloidal silver, nor does it contain enough silver ions to turn anyone’s skin blue.*

Q: What important minerals are increased by the IonPod®?
A: Keep in mind that this answer depends upon the source water, but the testing we have done shows an increase in the following minerals to the levels indicated:

  • Chromium – 1.2 mcg/L
  • Magnesium – 49900 mcg/L
  • Manganese – 3.4 mcg/L
  • Potassium – 18300 mcg/L
  • Silver – .08 ppm
  • Sodium – 140000 mcg/L
  • Vanadium – 19.2 mcg/L
  • Molybdenum – 6.76 mcg/L
  • Zinc – 61.8 mcg/L

Q: Should I store my water in the IonPod® in the refrigerator?
A: You can do this, but not necessary.

Q: After 10 minutes my IonPod water is still only 8.5. Is something wrong?
A: Change in pH and ORP is measurable at the 3 minute mark. Depending upon source water quality, it can take up to 10 minutes before substantial pH and ORP changes are achieved. This is why we like the 3-pack. Leaving water sit in the IonPod is ideal and more easily accomplished when you have more than one.*

Regarding pH 8.5, that may be the best you can get depending on your source water. That is still pretty good for drinking water. Consider getting an ORP meter to measure the ORP because that is the key anti-aging feature of the IonPod.*

Another potential issue is the pH strips. We are unhappy with the strips’ ability to properly test the water. We have changed to providing liquid reagent with the IonPod®. We urge you to order the pH reagent or obtain some locally for testing water. It is an instant measurement and much more accurate than the strips, which are likely NOT giving you a true reading.*

Q: If I put my IonPod® water in a separate container to store, do I ever dry the IonPod® when it is not in use?
A: There is no need to dry the IonPod® but you can if you desire. Remember, storing the water in a separate container is acceptable, but the negative ORP (anti-oxidant / anti-aging status) gradually dissipates and is pretty much gone after 48 hours. Be sure the container is closed and stored in a dark place. The best choice is to have several IonPods® and store the water in them so the water is continually being treated while being stored. We are working on an IonPod-Maxi® for greater storage capability.*

Q: What evidence is there that anti-oxidant water (low ORP) is beneficial separate from the fact that the water may be alkaline?
A: I am sure there is plenty of info on the Internet. I do know that a Dr. Uchiyama, Japan, has established that healthy people have a urine ORP of less than +50 and diseased people have a urine ORP of 75+. Exhausted or overworked systems also show a high ORP. Drinking alkaline, anti-oxidant water is a great way to help maintain a low ORP. In my clinical studies I have seen the same thing that Dr. Uchiyama has observed.*

Q: What is ORP and where can I buy a meter?
A: ORP is “Oxidation-Reduction-Potential.”
It is a measurement of the oxidizing (aging) status of a substance.
It can only be measured by a meter. I prefer the ORP meter made by American Marine. Inexpensive, works great.
You can find them on the Internet for approximately $100.
Bleach (very oxidizing/aging — you wouldn’t think of drinking it) is about +500.
Tap water (due to chlorine content) is approximately +200-+400.
Diseased and premature aging people have a urine ORP of 75+.
Aging people with few symptoms have a urine ORP of +50-75.
Healthy (so-called normal) people have a urine ORP of 0-50.
Very healthy people have a urine ORP of less than 0.
The lower the ORP, the more anti-aging is the substance. Want to live long? Keep a negative ORP urine. Live accordingly.
IonPod® water has an ORP of -50 to -200 depending upon source water and how long you leave it in the IonPod®.
Water is the most important thing you can put into your body. The ORP status of the water is very important if you are interested in anti-aging.*

Q: My gauss meter, only when set on high-sensitivity, records high emissions from the IonPod®, especially the top and bottom. What does this mean?
A: This means that the IonPod® is working. There is a magnet in the cap along with minerals in the top and bottom of the IonPod® that effectively ionize and alkalize the water, creating an alkaline pH and a low ORP. This is super for anti-aging and helping to absorb the acid toxins that create problems for health. You will notice that if you do not press the high-sensitivity button on your meter, that the readings emitted from the IonPod® are well within the safe zone.*

Q: Do you put the cap back on after drinks?
A: Yes, the materials inside the cap are part of the ionizing process that the IonPod® imparts to the water.

Q: Can I store the IonPod® water in a different container?
A: Yes, but it should be a closed container, in a dark place and with an IonShield® or two placed in it to maintain the low ORP. The alkaline pH does not degrade over time.

Q: Do you leave the top filter in while drinking from the IonPod®?
A: Yes.

Q: Can the IonPod® be used with bottled spring water? Or, is it necessary to use bottled water? Please answer BOTH questions.
A: Yes, it can be used with bottled spring water. It is not necessary to use bottled water or purified water if the source water is chlorine free. If the source water is not chlorine-free, then you should consider using the Ion-AnyWater®. It is an amazing unit that creates equally good water as the IonPod®, plus it removes chlorine, all without electricity.*

Q: I am wondering what are the benefits/advantages of drinking IonPod® water versus water with minute amounts of food-grade hydrogen peroxide?
A: The IonPod® water will have a higher mineral content; higher electrolytes; higher pH; lower ORP, all of which are desirable and cannot be achieved simply by adding minute amounts of food-grade hydrogen peroxide.*

Q: I ozonate all of my drinking water. Can this be done inside the IonPod®?
A: You may pour ozonated water into the IonPod®.

Q: When rinsing with hot water, is the filter rinsed as well as the container?
A: Yes.

Q: When drinking, is the filter left in or out?
A: Leave it in, but it IS optional.

Q: When pouring the treated water into another container, leave the filter in or out?
A: Leave it in, but it IS optional.

Q: Can you pour IonPod® water into another container and then add more IonPod® water to that container?
A: Yes.

Q: Can I test my urine pH and saliva pH with the liquid reagent supplied with the IonPod®?
A: No, you need to order pH strips from Healthy Habits® or find some at your local pharmacy (probably more expensive). The liquid reagent is only for clear water testing.

Q: Does the IonPod® really work? What pH can it achieve?
A: I guess you must be new to Healthy Habits or you would already know that if the IonPod®, or any other product, did not work, we wouldn’t be making it available to you. We are a family owned company. The Martin Family prides itself on Quality – Integrity – Longevity. Depending upon the source water, the IonPod® will raise the pH to 10, if the water is left in the IonPod® for long enough. It is advantageous to own multiple IonPods® so you can leave the water for long periods of time to gain the maximum water treatment benefits.*

Q: I bought 2 IonPods® and followed the directions to the letter to initialize them. Used them for a couple of weeks and then just decided to finally get the pH testing strips. Lo and behold, water from the IonPod® raises the water pH by only about 0.3. My water starts out about 6.2 and after 30 minutes it is only 6.5! This is true for both of the units.
A: Most pH strips are not suited for testing water. This why we include a liquid pH reagent with the IonPod®. pH strips may be used for testing urine/saliva, or other buffered solutions, but they will return a false reading when used with an unbuffered solution such as water. Yes, there are specially-designed pH strips which are designed for testing water, but they are rare, and still return varying results. Do not use pH strips for testing IonPod® water. After 30 minutes, the IonPod® should raise the pH of most water to well over 8.0, perhaps as high as 10. If it doesn’t, you either have the wrong test strips, or your IonPod® upper cartridge is reaching the end of its life and needs to be replaced (not usually for at least 6-12 months).*

Q: I have an IonPod®. Is it good that the bottom part of the IonPod® is not removable? It is always wet. Could this grow mold? Please let me know how to keep it dry?
A: You should always have water in the IonPod® so the bottom being wet would be a non-issue. The longer water sits in the IonPod®, the better it gets. Mold is not an issue mainly due to the silver ions present in the bottom cartridge.*

Q: Are the “Ion” that you are referring to the same as what is produced by air purifiers ?
A: In a way, yes, but, generally, no. The air purifiers depend upon “negative ions” being emitted into the air to attract dust particles and other positive ions, to “clean” the air. Our “Ion” products are designed to protect the body from conflict energy produced by the EMF from man-made electrical devices.*

Q: I have been using the IonPod® for a couple of weeks. I seem to be sweating more. Is this common?
A: Yes, it is common, especially if you were previously drinking water or fluids that weren’t being absorbed as well as the IonPod® water, which is highly absorbed due to the smaller molecule.

Q: I just received my IonPod® and have a question. I have a Culligan Water purification system that is hooked up to my ice maker. Is there a problem if I pour my alkaline water from my IonPod® over ice made with water that is not alkaline, i.e., Culligan water?
A: There is no problem as long as you realize that the Culligan ice will be diluting both the alkaline pH as well as the anti-aging negative ORP of the IonPod® water. It is impossible to know how much it is diluted without testing both the pH and ORP before and after the ice. You can use the included pH reagent to do the pH testing. The only way to test the ORP is to use a digital meter. We recommend the one sold online by American Marine.

Q: Will IonPod® water increase my intake of sodium?
A: No more than it helps you better absorb all of the other minerals.*

Q: Will IonPod® water make my pet alkaline?
A: IonPod® water is suitable for pets. Whether it will make your pet alkaline depends upon the body chemistry and diet of your pet, just as it does with humans.*

Q: I wanted to let you know that the lid of one of my three IonPods® does not fit correctly. It doesn’t screw on right. However, so far it doesn’t leak.
A: Please call for an RA #. We will replace the IonPod®. As with anything else, there is an occasional quality control issue and it appears that this is one.*

Q: What percent of the minerals or ingredients from the cartridges gets absorbed into the water?
A: The percentage is unknown. We are not concerned with mineral absorption. The purpose of the IonPod® is to alkaline the water and to lower the ORP.*

Q: Does the stainless steel in the IonPod® ever wear out or does the nickle from the metal affect the quality of the stainless steel after time?
A: We are not aware of any degradation. This is one of the reasons why high-quality stainless steel is used.*

Q: Does the IonPod® filter fluoride?
A: The IonPod® does not filter fluoride. It is not a filter. The Ion-AnyWater is a filter that also increases the pH and lowers the ORP just as does the IonPod®. The IonPod® is designed to be used with purified water.*

Q: Has anyone attempted to pack their IonPod® in their carry-on when traveling by air? The IonDisk® is advertised as great for air travel. Has anyone had experience with any of the Ion water devices at inspection? I don’t want to lose them at check in, but would like to have something on board for my water.
A: We take the IonPod® with us on board airplanes with no problems. You will need to remove the water prior to going through security.*

Q: If the IonPod® is not going to be used for an extended period of time, should I let it dry out or simply replace the cap?
A: Let it dry out if it is not going to be used for an extended period of time.

Q: Does the stainless steel in the IonPod® ever wear out or does the nickel from the metal affect the quality of the stainless steel after time?
A: We are not aware of any degradation. This is one of the reasons why high-quality stainless steel is used.

Q: I bought the container about 6 months ago. The other day I was going to make a batch of Colloidal silver, I usually but distilled water for it but decided to use the treated water. It turned the silver blue and looks like it ate the silver from the electrode, as it is totally white. It usually takes 4 hours to make but it had only been on for 1 1/2 hr. What is going on here?
A: IonPod® water is micro water. The water was blue because of the increased absorption of the silver. If you read the instructions for your silver generator, it likely says to use distilled water. The high pH and low ORP of the IonPod® water, being a much higher quality water, will require less time for the silver generator. There is already silver in the IonPod® water. If you want to add silver, use our Silver Defense. I would not use the IonPod® water with the silver generator.*

Q: I like my new IonPod® but have a question. I think I read a caution about taking prescription medicines with the water? I take NO prescription medicine but I do take a number of supplements suggested by my naturopathic physician. Is there any necessary caution with this?
A: No caution necessary with supplements.

Q: What percent of the minerals or ingredients from the cartridges gets absorbed into the water?
A: The percentage is unknown. We are not concerned with mineral absorption. The purpose of the IonPod® is to alkalize the water and to lower the ORP.

Q: I received my IonPod® one week ago and I am happy with the results so far. I need to know if after the 5 minutes that the water needs to become alkalized, can I leave the water in the IonPod® as I sip it or do I have to transfer the alkalized water to another container?
A: You may leave it in the IonPod®.

Q: Is there a maximum quantity of alkalized water a person may drink where-after the person becomes too alkalized?
A: It is possible, but improbable. The best way is to monitor your urine pH and saliva pH using the Purification Test Strips from Healthy Habits. Make sure your pH’s do not violate any of the pH rules mentioned above.*

Q: There is a company that sells a device for alkalizing water that costs around $1,500, could you tell me what that device does different than your IonPod®?
A: The main benefit of the $1500 unit is that is produces a continuous stream of high pH/low ORP water and it is a filter. You can accomplish the same thing using the Ion-Stream for 90% less money, plus you can put it on the counter like the $1500 unit or under the counter. You can also connect the Ion-Stream to an reverse osmosis unit, which you cannot do with the electric units. The Ion-Stream is like an IonPod® on steroids.*

Q: Our water has a lot of calcium which gives a coating on the parts. Is there a way to clean the calcium deposits without damaging the IonPod®? Should we use water that goes through the softener which takes care of the calcium problem?
A: Yes, follow the cleaning instructions mentioned in the above answers, or in the manual that came with your IonPod®.

Q.The little manual included with the IonPod® says not to use IonPod® water with prescription drugs, but to drink it one hour before or after taking the drugs. Does the same instruction apply to vitamins and supplements? Sometimes I drink these with water, mixing it in the water. Can that be done with IonPod® water?
A: The warning is only for prescription drugs. The reason is that IonPod® water may result in increased absorption, which could act like an overdose in some cases.

Q: Does your IonPod® also micro-cluster the water molecules as implied in Health+ News?
A: Yes.

Q: I purchased 2 IonPods® which arrived yesterday. I opened on and tried it out. I don’t understand the value of it as it is so small and you have to be making water all the time. My husband & I drink lots of water so this would not be something we would want to take time to keep making water all day long. Also I did not understand that you could not drink from it without unscrewing the lid. Who wants to drink from a bottle you have to keep unscrewing the lid every time you want a drink? I takes me 3 times to fill my 32 oz. bottle and then it’s not quite full. I would have to make 6 bottles of water to have enough water for just me. Am I missing some information?
A: The value is enormous. Read the above 92 answers and you will see why it is important that you drink alkaline water with a low ORP. In the world of alkaline-ionized water, it is true that you get for what you pay. Keep in mind that there are electrolysis units that sit on the counter, plug into electricity, and will make IonPod® water continuously, but they cost $1000, far from the $49.995 cost of the IonPod®.*

You only need to place the cap on the IonPod® if you are storing it away with water inside. Leaving the cap off will not affect the alkaline pH, but it will cause a faster loss of the lower ORP than if the water was stored in the IonPod® with the cap in place. The IonPod® is great to travel with you and to make small amounts of water.*

Q: I just received my IonPod®, and wonder whether you can tell me how I will know when to replace the cartridge. Is it when the pH chart shows that the water is getting acidic?
A: That would be one reason. Another reason would be if the ORP measures above 5 (ORP meter needed for this). Basically, you shouldn’t need a mineral pod replacement for at least 6-12 months, depending upon usage.

Q: If I only use one IonPod® in a year but buy 3 at once, will the minerals in the other two last until I use them in a year?
A: Yes.

Q: How long can I store the water?
A: As long as you want. The only thing that will be lost is the negative ORP. That will be lost within 72 hours but the high pH will remain.

98: Can I make ice with IonPod® water?
A: Yes.

Q: Does the IonPod® need to be cleaned after every use.
A: No. Clean at your discretion.

Q: There was no cloudy appearance to the water at the first HOT Water application to get it started did I do something wrong?
A: No, the cloudy appearance has as much to do with the quality of your source water as anything else.

Q: Is there an IonPod® that will give a pH of 12.5? if so where can i order one? last but not least, reports say that alkaline water has no benefits, is this true, and which method is best?
A: To obtain a pH of 12.5 it is necessary to use an electric ionizer and even then that may be difficult. Depending upon the source water, leaving water in the IonPod® for 24 hours or more may obtain a pH close to that, but that process is impractical unless you own several IonPods®. Regarding alkaline water having no benefit, that is just plain stupid. Anyone who says that has not experienced working with clients drinking alkaline/ionized water. They are examining it purely from a textbook chemistry point of view.*

Q: Is it ok to drink the IonPod® water with a meal? I am wondering if it will upset the acid needed for digestion?
A: No more than you will consume, I wouldn’t be concerned.

Q: Hello, I got your product today and I have a water cooler in which I use filtered water. I tested it and it was at a 6.0. I followed bottle directions and converted a bottle of the same water and it was 9.0 afterwards. I was happy! I decided to bottle after bottle to fill a 2 qt pitcher of alkaline water to store in fridge. I followed the 5 minute procedure until I got 2 quarts of water made, tested it again and now all that water is coming up a color that doesn’t even match anything on the card. It’s like a green! What could be happening?
A: The problem could be that you are not waiting until the water is alkaline enough before you transfer to the pitcher. The problem could also be the plastic. To test this, you could use a glass container.

Q: I’m a little confused on the several water treatment products you carry and would like a definition of them!

A: IonPod Water – Creates high pH low ORP water without using electricity for superb anti-aging qualities. Does not filter. Great for traveling or at home to convert regular tap water to ionized water.*

Cellfood – Superb trace element and electrolyte water treatment. Increases conductivity in the body for better nerve transmission. Almost everyone is electrolyte or mineral deficient.*

BioVitale-H2O® – Basic premise is that it will destroy the disease memory that is in all water, purified or not. We must stop drinking other people’s disease if we want to be healthy and have longevity. It is also a small molecule water that permeates like alcohol. Add to all fluid consumed.*

Q:  Relative to the drinking of water issue in Health Watcher issue #1, what is the lowest-high pH that will be effective in alkalizing ones body, akin to that, what would be the highest-low ORP to be efficacious? Getting a low ORP,even with some of the best ionizers is most difficult?

A: pH is exclusive to the individual’s body chemistry and their daily nutrition, water and exposure to acidic environment. Generally speaking, people who have adopted an alkaline diet and use alkaline water experience a lower overall body pH. With regard to ORP, the antioxidant potential of IonPod® water has been measured as low as negative 293 (anything lower than negative 100 is very good).*

Q: How do I know when to replace the upper mineral cartridge?

A: Replace your IonPod® mineral cartridge every 10-12 months with regular use. (Up to 64 oz. per day average) or every 6-8 months with heavy use. (Over 72 oz. per day average)

Q: To what pH/how alkaline will the IonPod® make my water?

A: It depends upon the pH of the source water. Ideally, purchase pH test strips and measure it for yourself. Make sure the strips are made to test WATER. Many do not. You may also find them at your local health foods store, pharmacy or swimming pool supply store.
