With multiple terms used to describe the same basic substance, you may be feeling a bit confused and may like some clarification. As you’ve already learned in the previous pages, structured water is an exciting discovery that could have far-reaching health benefits. Yet, you may have also heard the term hexagonal water used, and wonder what it is referring to.
In simple terms, hexagonal water is the basis upon which structured water is built. How so? Hexagonal water refers to six water molecules which are bound together in a ring-like formation. This larger structure is held in place by a hydrogen bond shared between these six different water molecules (1). You could think of a single formation of hexagonal water being much like a single floor tile.
The next step is to continue building more of these hexagonal structures, which then join together. To follow the same analogy, this would be like laying more floor tiles next to the first one and connecting them together with mortar. In terms of creating structured water, through the vortex process described on the previous page, sheets of hexagonal water are produced and then stacked one upon another. What is the end result?
Water that is fully structured throughout, which has unique properties that may have exciting health ramifications. While science is just beginning to look into this new vista of unexplored territory, researchers like Dr. Gerald Pollack have found that structured water within the body plays a vital role for health. The question that remains is how to get the water within the body’s tissues to structure correctly (or restructure if illness, disease or injury is present). While Dr. Pollack states that further research is absolutely needed, one possible route is to drink structured water to promote health and well-being (2).
