Water is vital for our health and overall wellbeing. But did you know that you can make your water not only cleaner by filtering it, but also better, with improved and more beneficial health properties?
Yes, there is a way! By structuring your water!
Not many people are aware that this method exist, but in fact, it has been widely used in the past for improving water quality.
Let’s get started!

What is water structuring?
What is water structuring? The simplest answer to this question is, “We change the molecular structure and electrical charge of the water to improve its quality and hydrating properties.”
Structured water is also called hexagonal, gel, ordered, and liquid crystalline water, as well as 4th phase, EZ water, or simply H3O2. 
Evidence suggests that structured water it is 10% denser than regular water and is also higher oxygen, with more alkaline pH and electrically charged, compared to normal water (H2O). Those properties make this type of water exceptionally hydrating. 
Besides, according to Dr. Gerald Pollack (scientist, biometrical engineer, and professor at the University of Washington), hexagonal water occurs naturally in our body cells, as well as in the cells of plants.  Here, it’s important to mention that even though the water we drink is usually not structured, our body splits the water molecules and “structures” them into hexagonal water to ensure proper hydration and function of the body cells.
In fact, in his lecture, Dr. Pollack emphasizes the fact that without hexagonal water, the body cells are unable to function properly. He also suggests that there are several ways to ensure you have enough structured water in your cells:
- Provide sufficient hydration (with regular water)
- Drink green juices (as the plant cells are pure EZ water)
- Drink turmeric and coconut water
- Stay under the sun
- Grounding (walking barefoot)
Benefits of drinking structured water
A 2019 study published in the Journal of Applied Biotechnology and Bioengineering has looked into the health benefits of drinking 1 liter of structured water for 30 days.  The research results showed various positive physiological aspects:
- Weight loss (due to reduced body fat percentage)
- Lower creatinine levels (waste product from muscle and protein metabolism)
- Improved glomerular filtration (filtering excess fluids and waste products from the blood)
- Improved kidney function
- Improved heart and lung functions
- Increased energy and adaptability
- Quick recovery and resilience
- Reduced stress levels
- Improved water-salt metabolism
How to structure water at home?
A 2018 review paper published in the International Journal of Agriculture Sciences suggests that there are various methods that you can use to turn regular water into structured water  :
- Running it through obstructions like smooth stones, or blending it to create a vortex
- Placing a water container close to a magnet
- Swirling water into a container (again, to create a vortex)
You can also find special gadgets that can help you structure water at home.
Besides, taking into account that structured water is also called liquid crystalline water, there are some unconfirmed hypotheses suggesting that certain crystals, like zeolites, can change the structure of water when they come in contact with it and eventually convert it into hexagonal water. 
Water treatment with zeolite-like crystals has been associated not only with changed water structure but also with reducing the level of water contamination and positive pH changes. 
Drinking enough water daily is essential to maintain your health and wellbeing. That being said, some types of water have more beneficial characteristics in regards to your health.
Drinking structured water in the form of green juice, coconut water, or homemade EZ water can offer you various health benefits, including improved organ and cell function, better stress resilience, and fat loss.
Additionally, you can improve your body’s ability to structure water by walking bare feet, drinking enough liquids, and staying under the sun for at least a couple of minutes per day.
