Water is a transparent fluid which forms the world’s streams, lakes, oceans and rain and it is the major constituent of the fluids of living things. It is the cradle of life which is a common heritage. Pure water is a clear, colourless and tasteless and odourless liquid with a boiling point of 100oC , a freezing point of 0oC, maximum density of 1g/cm3 at 4oC.Water is an important but often overlooked nutrient .The normal human body contains 40 liters of water. Water is not only vital for mere existence, but it is also essential for optimum health. An insufficient amount of water causes weakness, problematic skin, a weakened immune system—virtually every health issue under the sun requires water as part of the “healing squad.” Electrochemical system of water treatment has not received adequate attention. Electrochemistry, a link between chemistry and electronic science has been proven to be a clean,versatile and powerful tool for development of a new advanced method for water purification. Electrochemically reduced water is functional water which is capable of destroying microorganisms present in water and also can scavenge reactive oxygen species hence free radicals. The active agents in reduced water are hydrogen (atoms and molecules), minerals and nanoparticles.
