What Does ORP Mean? What About Negative ORP?

What Does ORP Stand For?

ORP Stands for Oxidation-Reduction Potential.

It is one of the theories behind drinking alkaline water.   The theory goes that most bottled and tap water today is at a positive ORP - many natural healers consider that harmful to the body because of the oxidation potential.

Essentially, they are theorizing the creation of free radicals and destructive chemicals because of the positive (in this case positive means 'bad') oxidation potential.

Therefore, the alkaline water theorists believe that you want to drink water with a negative ORP.  Hence when you get alkaline water you want it to have a negative ORP for the alleged health benefits.

This alkaline water pitcher produces alkaline water with a negative ORP.   

I hope I've explained what ORP means, but if you have questions, let me know in the comment section below.
