What Is Alkaline Water?
Today, many people are realizing the benefits of using alkaline water. Alkaline water has a higher pH (potential hydrogen) than regular tap water, and it helps to neutralize the acidity in the body. This in turn helps to strengthen the immune system, properly hydrate the body and prevent disease. Because our bodies are made up of over 70% water it is vital that we consume high quality water in order to maintain optimal health.
5 MAJOR BENEFITS OF DRINKING ALKALINE WATER
- Detoxify your body to remove normal acidic waste products accumulated daily, plus remove toxins accumulated in your body from your environment, prescription drugs, unnatural foods and from the “normal” process of aging. Acid wastes collected in the body can lead to more serious health conditions. Drinking alkaline water daily can neutralize the acidity and wash acid waste products from cells and tissues.
- Hydrate your body: this is basic to maintain or regain optimum health. During ionization your alkaline water filter forms your water into micro clusters that are more easily absorbed at the cellular levels thus “super hydrating” your body.
- Alkaline water acts as an antioxidant, scavenging for and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Because alkaline water has the ability to give up electrons, it can effectively neutralize and block free-radical damage to the body. Ionized alkaline water seeks out free radicals and converts them into oxygen which your body can use for energy production and tissue oxygenation. Cancer and most other illnesses cannot survive in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.
- Alkaline water helps balance the body’s pH, which tends to be acidic because of our high acid food diet, stress and exposure to environmental toxins such as smog. Alkalize your body pH from acidic to alkaline pH, because cancer and many other illnesses cannot live in alkaline environments. Alkaline is the “normal” state of healthy persons.
- Enhance your immune system to maximize your body’s ability to fight off disease and heal itself.
Most of us do not realize what is truly coming out of our taps. It may be time to have your household water assessed, to protect you and your family.
