Water is a wondrous molecule for being two simple bonds between two hydrogen and one oxygen atom. It covers over 70% of the Earth’s surface as a liquid and takes many shapes in the air as clouds or floating about as glaciers. Needless to say, water is important to not only the environment, but to our health as well. It is no wonder that our body is even an average of 65% water and the quality of the water we consume plays a critical role in our health.
While it is common to see water in the liquid, gas (steam), or solid (ice) phases, it is not so commonly known that these phases occur in many different ways.  By fine-tuning pressure, humidity, and temperature, one can create a vast array of structures that may be wholly liquid, gas, or solid, but with new and exciting characteristics. This is the foundation behind Stable Water Clusters and why their natural state affords us new and exciting benefits.
So, what are Stable Water Clusters?
In simple terms, it’s best to begin with what it isn’t. Kangen water, structured water, and ionized water are not stable water clusters.  Just as there are many possible ways to exist within each phase of solid, liquid, or gas, these types of water utilize vastly different features we find in water and to equate one to another is akin to equating apples to oranges. Though some terminology may be shared and borrowed, the fundamentals are different though it may not be as apparent as categorizing fruit.
Stable Water Clusters are a special phase of water in which the solidification of water occurs much like freezing into ice (solid water). However, the thermal stability of ice is well known especially now with the summer heat.  Typical ice melts into liquid water with simple heating… Stable Water Clusters do not. It is for this reason that we describe them as stable water clusters, arguably unique from ice as the transition of freezing or melting is not observed for this water solid.  It is for this reason that stable water clusters may very well be a fourth phase of water. It shares some characteristics of ice but defies the conventional definition. In liquid water, Stable Water Clusters contort and arrange with each other to form a double helical structure out of solid water and only water.
For something so revolutionary, one might ask, why now? Why have we not discovered such a profound phase before? The answer is simple: We couldn’t see it. Only recently has technology provided a means for exceptionally small microscopy.  The commercialization of the Atomic Force Microscope provided a means for seeing into the world of atoms. It is on this scale that we could see such a small and rare event occur.
With this new way to view the cluster and confirm its existence, researchers could then investigate the possibilities, one of which began with the observation of stable water clusters around bacteria. The stable water clusters seemed to attach to the bacterium, puncturing and terminating it. This and many other observations led researchers like Dr. Benjamin Bonavida to a series of studies at UCLA that showed promise in other realms of health1. Based off of these studies we know now that Stable Water Clusters may enable specified gene expressions. It is these expressions that help DNA (and overall cell function) to perform its job, leading to a healthier individual.
It is water at its best: a reminder of why we consume it and why the world saw it fit to surround us with it.
