The aim of the present study was to
investigate the beneficial effects of magnetized water for human and
There was an improvement in water quality when exposed to the magnetic field with considerable change in the pH,
total dissolved solids, total hardness, conductivity, salinity, dissolved oxygen, evaporating temperature, minerals, organic matter
and total count of bacteria. Therefore it’s penetration into cell wall would be facilitated which can accelerate ordinary diffusion of
water that is vital for growth of different organs. Patients uses magnetic water for digestive, urinary and nervous problems,
ailments like mastitis, pains and swellings, painful urination and many other disorders. Magnetized water has been found
effective in alleviating colds, coughs, bronchitis, all types of fever and more, arthritis pain, reducing blood pressure, recovering
quickly from a stroke, and it helpful in the regularization of women's menses. Also, treatment with magnetic water was very
effective in breaking up kidney and gall bladder stones into small particles. The water also prevented further formation of stones
in the kidneys and gallbladder. Magnetic water may prevent aging and fatigue by increasing the cell membrane permeability.
Effectiveness of magnetized water in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis has been shown in some animal and human
studies. It has been reported that magnetic water help unclog the arteries and veins of deposits of cholesterol and salts and
normalize the circulatory system. Also, magnetized water can be helpful in weight control, as an adjutant to a correct diet because
this water improves metabolic activity, it may be helpful in burning up excessive fatty tissue. Magnetized drinking water
improves nutrient digestibility, saves water consumption, optimizing rumen fermentation parameters, and it could an effective
way to reduce methane production and contributing to mitigate environmental impact in livestock, positive animal health, which
is reflected in the increase in milk yield and its component and improves blood picture and antioxidant status. Magnetized
drinking water caused increase milk production, mutton, and wool in sheep not only that, but more weight gain in geese and egg
production and hatchability in turkey can be achieved, and increasing in milk yields in dairy cows and ewes. It can be concluded
that magnetic water treatment improved blood picture, biochemical parameters, semen quality, and antioxidant status in human
and animals. So, magnetic water must be used to mitigate the harmful effects of drugs, toxins, and environmental pollutant on
human and animals.
Animals, Antioxidant Status, Bioeffects, Histological Structure, Human, Magnetic Water, Physiological Aspects,
Water is Paramagnetic meaning that it holds a magnetic
charge. Para-magnetism occurs primarily in substances in
which some or all of the individual atoms, ions, or molecules
possess a permanent magnetic dipole moment. Water has a
dipole moment and is, therefore, subject to paramagnetism [1,
2]. Magnetic water means passing water from magnetic tubes,
by putting a magnet in water so properties of water turn into
very fertile and active, causing high oxygen ratio, velocity of
dissolved salts and amino acids in water. Natural water after
sterilization is called dead water, so magnetic water transfer
water from dead to live [3, 4]. There was an improvement in
water quality when exposed to the magnetic field with
considerable change in the pH, total dissolved solids, total

hardness, conductivity, salinity, dissolved oxygen,
evaporating temperature, minerals, organic matter and total
count of bacteria. The increase of salinity of water due to the
magnetic exposure could be attributed to increasing soluble
salts which concurred with the conductivity, while increasing
dissolved oxygen could be due to the decrease in organic
matter n magnetic water . Physics shows that water changes
weight under the influence of magnetic fields. More hydroxyl
(OH-) ions are created to form alkaline molecules, and reduce
acidity. Increasing both the electric conductivity and the
dielectric constant of water was documented [2, 5, 6]. Normal
water has a pH level of about 7, whereas magnetized water can
reach pH of 9.2 following the exposure to 7000 gauss strength
magnet for a long period of time [2, 7].
Exposing of water to strong magnetic fields affected the
mineral content of water and its effects depended on the
strength of the magnetic field and exposure time. Nowadays,
the use of magnets to improve water quality is of significant
interest due to low cost compared to chemical and physical
treatments . Water solution passes through magnetic field
acquire finer and more homogeneous structures, which
increases the fluidity, dissolving capability for various
constituents like minerals and vitamins and consequently
improves the biological activity of solutions, affecting
positively the performance of animals [2, 8]. Using
magnetically treated water offered improvements in industry
and agriculture such as scale reduction and increased crop
yields [9, 10]. Researchers found when a permanent magnet is
kept in contact with water for a considerable period of time;
water gets magnetically charged and acquires magnetic
properties. Such magnetically treated water has its effect even
on the human body when taken internally and regularly for a
considerable period of time [2, 7]. Surface tension in
magnetized water is reduced by 10-12% whilst its velocity is
increased in compare with regular water. Therefore it’s
penetration into cell wall would be facilitated which can
accelerate ordinary diffusion of water that is vital for growth
of different organs [11, 12].
Magnetized water was first used in Russia by three
specialists: Drs. G. Gerbenshchikow, I. Shetsov and K.
Tovstoles, all three specialists in urology at the Kirov Military
Medical Academy in Leningrad. They had their patients drink
bi-polar magnetized water. This simple treatment was very
effective in breaking up kidney and gall bladder stones into
small enough particles to be passed through urine without any
pain or danger to the patient. The water also prevented further
formation of stones in the kidneys and gallbladder. Soviet
physicians have been giving internally magnetized water to
patients for over 30 years for digestive, urinary and nervous
problems, ailments like mastitis, pains and swellings, painful
urination and many other disorders [13, 14]. There was a
report of people resolving bladder problems, recovering
quickly from a stroke, alleviating arthritis pain and reducing
blood pressure by drinking magnetized water . Magnetic
water may prevent aging and fatigue by increasing the cell
membrane permeability . Effectiveness of magnetized
water in the prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis has
been shown in some animal and human studies [16-19]. It has
been reported that magnetic water help unclog the arteries and
veins of deposits of cholesterol and salts and normalize the
circulatory system. Magnetized water has been found
effective in alleviating colds, coughs, bronchitis, all types of
fever and more, and it helpful in the regularization of women's
menses [14, 20]. Also, magnetized water can be helpful in
weight control, as an adjutant to a correct diet because this
water improves metabolic activity, it may be helpful in
burning up excessive fatty tissue [14, 21].
Yacout et al.,  concluded that magnetic water treatment
for Zaraibi goats resulted in improved water quality which
consequently improves nutrient digestibility, saves water
consumption, optimizing rumen fermentation parameters, and
it could an effective way to reduce methane production and
contributing to mitigate environmental impact in livestock,
positive animal health, which is reflected in the increase in
milk yield and its component and improves blood picture and
antioxidant status. Magnetic drinking water caused increase
milk production, mutton, and wool in sheep not only that, but
more weight gain in geese and egg production and hatchability
in turkey can be achieved, and increasing in milk yields in
dairy cows and ewes [5, 22, 23]. Al-Fadul,  concluded that
the magnetization of water improves the water properties,
which consequently improves the growth performance, feed
efficiency and saves water consumption for broilers. Attia et
al.,  concluded that magnetic treatment improved water
quality, semen quality, blood picture and antioxidant status
and hence buck fertility. It has been demonstrated that intake
of magnetized water result in reduced DNA damage [12, 26].
In zaraibi goats, magnetic treatment could improve water
quality and consumption, feeding value, ruminal fermentation,
blood picture, antioxidant status and hence milk and labneh
yields especially with 3600 gauss . Cows drinking
magnetized water produced more milk and were healthier than
cows drinking untreated water. Sheep produced more wool
and meat, hens laid more eggs and all farm animals survived
longer when drinking magnetized water . Most of the
previous literatures studied the effects of magnetic water on
organs of a certain animal, but few of them, which studied the
beneficial effects of magnetic water on different organs in
animals, and human. Also, to our knowledge, the evidence
reporting the effect of magnetic water on human and animals
is hardly found. So, the present review aimed to investigate the
beneficial effects of magnetized water for human and animals.
2. Effect of Magnetic Water on Feed
Intake, Water Consumption and Body
Attia et al.,  reported that rabbit bucks drank
magnetized water showed a significant increase in body
weight, feed intake. Also, Yacout et al.,  recorded that
zaraibi goats consumed magnetic water (field of 1200 and
3600 gauss) showed a significant increase feed intake and
water consumption. On the other hand, Feed consumption
80 Shaban Ali Ebrahim and Azab Elsayed Azab: Biological Effects of Magnetic Water on Human and Animals
showed no significant changes, while metabolic factor
increased and body weight decreased only among
magnetically treated water group animals, the highest
improvement was recorded in water consumption in
magnetically treated water groups. Magnetically treated water
makes animals thirsty could be used as a strategy to enhance
body hygiene and immune system .
3. Effect of Magnetic Water on Milk Yield
The daily milk yield of Zaraibi goats, dairy cattle, ewes, and
Awassi sheep consumed magnetic water was significantly
higher than control groups [5, 23, 29, 30]. This increase in
milk production may be attributed to the outcome of the
positive impact of magnetic water on digestion, absorption,
growth of cells and their functions, circulatory system and
udder [5, 31, 32], increasing in the secretion of the prolactin
hormone through the effect of the endorphins hormone, which
increases the stimulation and thus lead to an increase in milk
production [5, 33].
Improvement in milk yield was associated with an increase
in fat and protein production in animals consumed magnetic
water [5, 23, 29, 30, 34]. It may be due to the amount of milk
protein is directly proportional to the amount of milk produced,
or to an improvement in increasing the digestion of crude
protein, where drinking magnetic water works to an increase
in small intestines movement and increase the processes of
digestion and absorption [5, 35], or to a decrease in the
melatonin hormone, which leads to an increase in the (IGF-1)
Insulin-like growth factor-1 or may lead to an increase in the
secretion of prolactin hormone and this increase are important
in the secretion of milk [5, 36, 37].
4. Effect of Magnetic Water on
Animals received magnetic water showed a significant
increases in red blood cells count, and hemoglobin
concentration . Also, Al-Nuemi et al.,  recorded that
holstein bulls treated with magnetic water showed a
significant increases in red blood cells count, packed cell
volume and hemoglobin concentration of treated bulls for age
17-18 and 29-32 month compared with control. Increasing the
RBC’s count has attributed to increase the intensity of water
processor magnetically to that the magnetic field works on
iron attract in the blood and then connect the blood in larger
quantities to the area causing an increase the number of RBC’s
and hemoglobin concentration and therefore carried oxygen
more to cells [4,5, 38]. A significant increase in RBC could be
attributed to magnetic water causing increased production and
transferred large amount of RBC and to elaborate blood vessel
and increase in movement of RBC to changes of nutrition and
transferred of oxygen to cells [4, 23, 39, 40]. The
improvement in metabolic profiles could be attributed to
enhancing metabolic cycles, minerals solubility such as Fe
and/or Cu as evidenced by increasing RBCs and Hb and
nutrients transfer to various body cells, movement of blood
within the arteries facilitating the transport of oxygen bearing
blood and nutrients to different body cells [5, 41].
Raafat, and Nabil,  concluded that magnetic treated
water enhanced the normal hemoglobin derivatives and
decrease the non-function hemoglobin form so it improve the
overall hemoglobin health. Hemoglobin molecule is formed
from four globin parts surround a heme atom in the center of
this structure. The magnetic properties of the hemoglobin that
controls the binding process of hemoglobin with oxygen and
carbon dioxide many depends on this magnetic field generated
around the heme atom. By generating many of free radicals
the unpaired electron molecules reach to the heme atom
revealing oxidation process in which heme is highered from
ferrohemoglobin to ferric hemoglobin. In ferric hemoglobin
heme atom is in the higher electronic state which make the
affinity of oxygen very low. Treatment with magnetic treated
water improved the surrounding magnetic field of the water
molecule and enhanced the overall reaction carried out
depending on this property. Enhancement of the normal
oxyhemoglobin in which heme atom is in the ferro state is an
indication of the hemoglobin health . Treatment of buck
and ram with magnetic water caused a significant increase in
PCV and Hb [23, 42, 43]. Magnetic water were induced a
significant increase in Hb in lambs, ewes and in fish [44-46].
Treatment with magnetic water caused a high potential in the
processing of the body’s cells and tissues of different nutrition
appropriate to perform its best of its biological, leading to the
lifting capacity of organs and tissues hematopoietic like liver,
kidney and spleen, to produce blood [4, 33, 47]. Also due to
increase in metabolic reactions in the tissues, raising hormone
which works to increase the production of RBC and thus
increases PCV [4, 48, 49]. The increment of PCV and Hb may
be attributed to increase in production of these cells from bone
marrow, circulatory system under the effect of hormonal
factors [4, 50] or improves the immune system of animals [4,
51] or decreases viscosity of blood and increase movement of
blood in vessels which caused high movement of Hb [4, 52].
Animals received magnetic water showed a significant
increase in white blood cells count [4, 5]. The increase in the
whit blood cells count may be due to increase the severity of
the water processor magnetically to increase the emergence of
these cells configured sites in the bone marrow into the
circulatory system by the impact of some hormonal factors [5,
50], increase in body immunity through the increased
proportion of lymph cells which may be due that magnetic
water increases the content of immune globulin in the blood
and increase the number of defensive white blood cells [5, 53].
5. Effect of Magnetic Water on
Yacout et al.,  reported that Zaraibi goats drank magnetic
water showed a significant increase in glucose level compared
with drank unmagnetic water. On the other hand, the study of
Biomedical Sciences 2017; 3(4): 78-85 81
Alhammer et al.,  showed that magnetically treated water
significantly decreased the glucose level. This may be
attributed to magnetically treated water has increased the
water conductivity, this may increase the blood circulation and
by which increases the glucose uptake by the cells [28, 54,
Rabbits treated daily for 60 days with magnetic water
showed a significant increase in serum concentration of high
density lipoprotein– cholesterol, and a significant decrease in
serums total cholesterol, triacylglycerol, low density
lipoprotein - cholesterol, and very low density lipoprotein
cholesterol concentrations . Also, Zaraibi goats drank
magnetic water showed a significant decreased in cholesterol
concentration as compared with control group . This may
be due to interaction with moving charges and enzymes
activities rates in cell-free systems increasing transcript levels
for specific genes, or interacts directly with electrons in DNA
to affect protein biosynthesis [5, 49]. Exposure to a low
magnetic field decreased plasma peroxide level in stressed rats
. It is possible that EMF can ameliorate the deleterious
effects of Free radicals by decreasing the chemical reactions
that caused damage to DNA, proteins and lipids . The
antioxidant activity of magnetic water was claimed to be
responsible for its hypolipidemic effect .
Drinking magnetic water had beneficial effect on some
physiological aspects manifested by a significant elevation in
total serum proteins of male rabbits, and bucks [2, 42]. The
effect of magnetic water on total protein of blood may be
differed from species to another and increase significantly in
some components of blood without increase in others such as
total protein . Rabbits treated daily for 60 days with
magnetic water showed a significant increase in serum total
protein concentration . Also, Zaraibi goats drank magnetic
water showed a significant increase in total protein, albumin
and globulin compared with drank unmagnetic water .
Elevation of blood total protiens by magnetic water treatment
may play positive role in an increase in growth and the
consumption of protein to build somatic cells [5, 57], and
indicated maintenance of cellular functions, the change in
protein metabolism and EMF also interacts directly with
electrons in DNA to affect protein biosynthesis [2, 49, 58].
Goats received magnetic water showed a significant
decreased ALT and AST (improvement of liver functions)
when compared to those of goats that drank unmagnetic water
. On the other hand, no significant changes in both aspartate
aminotransferase and alkaline phosphatase activities, and
highly significant increased in adenosine deaminase activity
were recorded in the magnetically treated water groups
comparing to control group . Since adenosine deaminase
activity represents an immunological parameter, consumption
of MTW may improve the immunological status. Magnetic
treatment has claimed to help body against microbial invaders
and improve immune system [28, 59].
Goats received magnetic water showed a significant
decreased in urea (improvement of kidney functions) when
compared to those of goats that drank unmagnetic water .
6. Magnetized Water and Oxidative
Antioxidants are reducing agents, and limit oxidative
damage to biological structures by passive free radicals [5, 60].
Antioxidant enzymes mainly SOD and CAT is the first line
defensive against free radicals which cause oxidative damage
in animal tissues. Catalase (CAT) is one of the most important
intracellular enzymes in the detoxification of the oxidant
hydrogen peroxide. Meantime, the activity of AT and SOD
enzymes is inhibited with high level of toxic metabolites [5,
61]. Glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) is the most powerful
antioxidant enzyme protects cellular proteins against reactive
oxygen species (ROS) in the body [5, 62].
Several studies reported that magnetized water could
influence effectively on the oxidant-antioxidant balance, for
instance, it could decrease the amounts of malondialdehyde,
increase the superoxide dismutase activity in the heart, kidney
and liver and also decrease the amounts of nitric oxide which
all result in decreasing oxidative stress [12, 26, 63-65]. Goats
received Magnetic water showed a higher glutathione
peroxidase (GSH-Px), catalase (CAT) and superoxide
dismutase (SOD) compared to those of goats that drank
unmagnetic water . Rabbits treated daily for 60 days with
magnetic water showed a significant increase in serum
glutathione concentration .
7. Effect of Magnetic Water on
Histological Structure of Heart, Lung
Amer et al.,  reported that albino rats were given
magnetized water with intensity of 250, 750, 1000, 1500 gause
every day for 30 days. Then the animals were sacrificed and
the histological change on heart, lung and spleen was studied.
Histopathology of heart in rats treated with magnetic water
with intensity of 250, 750, 1000, 1500 gause showed no clear
pathological lesion. Lung section of rats treated with 250
gause of magnetic water showed no pathological lesion, while
lung section belongs to rats group given magnetic water with
intensity of 750, 1000 gause showed hyperplasia of lymphoid
tissue in the wall of bronchiole and thickening to the wall
alveoli, in addition the lung section belongs to magnetic water
with intensity of 1500 agues treated rats showed thickening in
alveolar wall. Spleen tissue belongs to magnetic water with
intensity of 250 gause treated rats showed hyperplasia of the
white pulp, while spleen tissue belongs to magnetic water with
intensity of 750 gause treated rats showed a marked
hyperplasia of the lymphoid tissue in the periarterial sheath.
Hyperplasia is an increase the number of cells mainly
lymphocyte. This increase mainly stimulated by high
intensities of magnetic water this result suggest that the
interference by magnetic field with regulation of cellular Ca
signals, the most important evidence in favor of this
hypothesis includes correlation between the magnetic field
changes and the cellular activation status and
82 Shaban Ali Ebrahim and Azab Elsayed Azab: Biological Effects of Magnetic Water on Human and Animals
extent to which lymphocyte DNA synthesis is modified by
magnetic field [66, 67]. Also, spleen tissue belongs to
magnetic water with intensity of 1000 gause treated rats
showed amyloid like substance deposition around the white
pulp. Necrotic area of lymphoid tissue was observed in the
spleen tissue belongs to rat groups given magnetic water with
intensity of 1500 gause .
8. Effect of Magnetic Water on
Magnetic water can increase ability of body for production
general and sexual hormones, transport of food in blood, and
improved semen characteristics, fertility rate [4, 44, 68-70].
Attia et al.,  reported that rabbit bucks drank magnetized
water showed a significant increase in fertility, sperm
concentration, mass motility and total live sperm. The
improvements in fertility and semen quality concurred with
significant increases in testosterone hormone,
immunoglobulin A, antioxidant enzymes, and with decreases
in lipid peroxidation biomarker malondialdehyde and
thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances . The increase in
testosterone due to magnetized water may have led to
increased sexual desire as demonstrated by the decrease in
the reaction time and the increase in fertility and semen
quality . Al-Nuemi et al.,  reported that holstein bulls
treated with magnetic water showed a significant rise in testis
dimensions and scrotal circumferences as compared with
control bulls for age at 17-18 month. Also, a significant
increase in testis dimension was recorded in magnetic water
treated buck, and lambs [42, 72]. This benefit of magnetic
water on testis dimension and scrotal circumferences may be
this magnetic water enhance the digestion absorption of
growth functions cell and circulating system [4, 31, 32], and
increase the feed conversion efficiency by reducing the surface
tension and increase the permeability of the cells, and this
allows the expansion of the gut to take advantage of food and
therefore, an improvement in the dimensions of the body .
Hafizi et al.,  investigated that the effects of magnetized
water on height of epithelial cells in pre-implantation stage
endometrium and fallopian tube and number of corpus lutea in
female mice. Data analysis showed a significant increase in
the mean number of corpus lutea and the height of epithelial
cells in fallopian tube comparing the case with the control
group whereas uterus epithelial cells of the case group showed
insignificant increase in height, in compare with the control
group. The potential hypotheses could be regarding to the
effects of magnetized water on oxidative stress and cell
growth which result in bio-activation improvement in
epithelial cells. Magnetized water is probably effective in cell
growth by increasing oxygen concentration, mineral solubility
and accelerating transfer of water and nutrients in all
compartments of body via improvement of permeability of
cell wall as a consequence of decreased surface tension and
electric conductivity [11, 12, 73]. The effect of magnetic field
on intracellular fluid and substances results in enzyme
activation and increased biochemical reactions in the cell, the
reduction of suspended solids and pathogenic bacteria is
another assumable factor that can explain this result .
Regarding the role of fallopian tube epithelium in secreting
colony stimulating factor 1 (CSF1), epidermal growth factor
and interleukin 2, the effect of magnetized water on epithelial
cells of the fallopian tube could be in favor of fertility. The
uterine epithelial cells and corpus luteum play an essential role
in the implantation phase. Increased number of corpus lutea in
association with increased height of uterus epithelial cells may
support the establishment of pregnancy .
9. Effect of Magnetic Water on the Bones
Neto et al.,  reported that the consumption of water
treated by magnetic field for 45 d provided an effective way to
improve the bone mineral density, bone mineral content, and
bone resistance in Wistar rats.
It can be concluded that magnetic water treatment improved
blood picture, biochemical parameters, semen quality, and
antioxidant status in human and animals. Magnetic water very
effective in breaking up kidney and gall bladder stones, and
prevent further formation of stones in the kidneys and
gallbladder. It alleviates arthritis pain and reducing blood
pressure, prevention and treatment of atherosclerosis, help
unclog the arteries and veins of deposits of cholesterol and
salts and normalize the circulatory system, helpful in weight
control. Also, it mitigate environmental impact in livestock,
increase in milk yields and its component in dairy cows and
ewes, mutton, and wool in sheep and improves blood picture
and antioxidant status, more weight gain in geese and egg
production and hatchability in turkey. So, magnetic water
must be used to mitigate the harmful effects of drugs, toxins,
and environmental pollutant on human and animals.
