Alkaline Animals
How High pH Water Can Benefit Your Pets/ Livestock

Research has proven that ionized alkalized water (structured water) is very beneficial for humans; you can imagine what it can do for your pets and livestock!  Veterinarians and pet owners alike have seen the benefits that alkalized ionized water offers, and believe that an alkaline animal is a healthy animal.  When testing this kind of water in a scientific setting the results can only be tainted by the human mind by something known as the placebo effect. This isn`t true with animals, when feeding ionized alkalized water to pets and other livestock populations, the placebo effect is not a factor. If you are testing a product such as this on animal populations, it either works or it doesn`t work...end of story.

Even though specific tests on all species of animals have not been performed, most of the preliminary research was done on animal populations. This research validated the use of alkaline water for pets in the reduction of stillbirths, increased fertility rates, elimination of intestinal pathogens, and the reduction and elimination of certain types of tumors and other forms of cancer in animal populations.

Drinking structured water is one of the best prophylactic ways to maintain good health that is available today; whether you are human or an animal. Some of the benefits that you will notice when providing alkaline for your pets and/or livestock will include: skin itchiness and dryness will be relieved, their fur will be shinier, smoother and softer, they will have fresher breath and their feces and urine will not be as potent smelling. If you raise dairy animals, there will be an increase in their fertility rates, and milk production will increase as will the quality.

Even the acidic water that the ionizers produce is useful in helping to treat and to kill pathogens and insect pests, fungal and bacterial skin conditions, acidic water even works on skin abrasions and cuts!

Alkaline water is a tremendous overall antioxidant product that you can feed your furry friends to keep them healthy.

In Asia, the use of this type of technology and its benefits are well known.  It has gotten to the point where alkaline water is used in place of tap water as the sole source of water for dairy cows on many farms.

Below you will find a synopsis of the benefits (provided by individual farms) that structured water has to offer, as reported by a group of large animal veterinarians.

Dairy Farm: Shikawa Ranch
Location: Momembetsu, Hokkaido
Spokesperson: Mr. T. Shikawa

1. There was a noticeable improvement in the quality of the milk.

Location: Nomura, Hokkaido
Spokesperson: Mr. G. Kasahara

1. The milk output had increase from 7,000kg o 8,900kg or an increase of 27%.
2. The use of the alkaline water had instilled a preventive approach to the overall health condition of the dairy cow in lieu of reactive medical means.
The overall health condition of the herd had improved dramatically.

Dairy Farm: Yamamoto Ranch
Location: Amashio, Hokkaido
Spokesperson: Mr. M. Yamatani

4. This farm is utilized as a model ranch in the use of alkaline water.

Dairy Farm: Yamatani Ranch
Location: Kamikawa, Hokkaido
Spokesperson: Mr. M. Yamatani

Dairy Farm: Ueda Ranch
Location: Akan, Hokkaido
Spokesperson: Mr. T. Ueda

1. The fortified calcium through the electrolysis water has strengthened the legs of the cows.
2. Due to the dramatically-improved health conditions, the quality of the milk has improved.

Dairy Farm: Okura Ranch
Location: Asahi-kawa, Hokkaido
Spokesperson: Mr. Y. Okura

1. The alkaline water has produced healthier cows.
There were no changes to the diet or the environment but the cows became healthier.
2. Increased their monthly sales by $20,000.00 through increased milk output.
(NOTE: There were no other comparative numbers provided to determine the actual increase in productivity levels.)

Dairy Farm: Hamanasu Ranch
Location: Mombetsu, Hokkaido
Spokesperson: Mr. S. Nakagawa.

1. The coloring of the udder became extremely healthy.
2. In result of alkaline water consumption and it`s natural healing ability, the amount of injury to the udder had diminished.
3. The milk output has increased by 800 kg per cow.
