As a result of comparative double blind clinical tests, alkaline ionized water was proved to be effective against constipation, and most importantly its' safety was verified. It is considered a departure for using medication where side effects are unavoidable to a certain extent.
The effectiveness of alkaline ionized water is very high at 80.5%.
