Water Ionizers

How would one compensate for the acidity or low pH of distilled water? How is electrolyzing distilled water to a higher pH of 8 or 9 possible without minerals? How does alkaline water reduce or antioxidize the human body? Where can a water distiller that electrolyzes water to a pH of higher than 8 be found?

Minerals are electrolytes, that is they carry electrical charge. Distilled water is without minerals and is therefore neutral in pH not low (acid). Alkalinity is the presence of excess electrons which can counterbalance excess protons (also known as free radicals) which can cause tissue damage. A water ionizer adds free electrons. A water distiller that would electrolyze (ionize) water is an oxymoron since distilled water has no minerals to ionize - so the answer is "no where."
