Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP), also known as redox potential (from the English RedOx-Reduction/Oxidation) is a unit of chemical activity of elements or compounds in reversible processes associated with the change of the ionic charge. The value of oxidation-reduction potential (Eh) for each redox reaction is calculated with a fairly complicated formula, expressed in millivolts (mV) and can be both positive and negative. In nature, the Eh value is in the range from -400 to +700 mV.
Normally, the ORP of the internal environment of the human body is in the range from -100 to -200 mV if the organism is in the regenerated state. ORP of normal drinking water (tap water, bottled water, etc.), measured in the same way, is almost always more than zero, and generally lies in the range from +200 to +300 mV. The difference in ORP of the internal environment of a human body and drinking water means that the electron activity in a human body is much higher than the activity of the electrons in drinking water.
If the drinking water supplied into a human organism has the ORP value close to that of the internal environment of the organism, the electric energy of cellular membranes (vital energy of an organism) is not spent –on the adjustment of water electron activity, and the water is absorbed immediately, since it is biologically compatible. Balancing of the mechanisms of redox processes regulation in the human body is considered by scientists to be the main cause of many diseases. When normal drinking water penetrates into the tissues of a human (or another) organism, it removes electrons from tissue cells, which consist of water from 70 to 80%. As a result, subject to the biological structures of an organism is the subject to oxidative destruction.
This organism wears out, ages: its vital organs lose their functionality. However, these negative processes can be slowed if the water incoming into an organism along with food and drink has properties compatible with those of the internal environment, i.e. has protective and regenerative properties. This fact has been confirmed by numerous expert studies and science centers around the world. In order to ensure the optimal use of drinking water by an organism in metabolic processes, its ORP must correspond to the ORP value of the internal environment of the organism.
The required change in ORP of water in an organism takes place on account of electric energy of cellular membranes, i.e, energy of the highest level, the energy that is actually the end product of the biochemical chain of nutrient transformation. To normalize the balance redox control system (to strengthen the immunity of an organism and the functions of vital organs and to enable the body to resist various diseases independently) is possible for drinking water with the least value of ORP and pH of the greatest value.
