Related to another question of mine on "electrolyzed reduced water". There are a number of companies that sell commercial products claiming to produce such water. I'm guessing it's not by adding "platinum nanoparticles" though (as my previous question), so it might not be exactly the same, which is why I'm asking separately.
The more common name for Electrolyzed Reduced Water is Ionized Alkaline Water. The reason water ionizers make electrolyzed reduced water is that a water ionizer puts a negative electrical charge into water, which gives it reduction potential. [...]
It has been demonstrated that alkaline water can help you recover from a hangover. It is able to do this because when you drink too much, hydrogen peroxide builds up in your liver, which damages and kills liver tissue. In lab experiments on rats, scientists have demonstrated that rats intoxicated with alcohol that drank alkaline water had much lower levels of hydrogen peroxide in their livers than rats that drank plain water.
There's no clear paper cited for that claim/experiment though. So is it true that this has been demonstrated experimentally and is the health benefit of drinking alkaline water as obvious as that seems to imply?
