Water for Better Health
Proper hydration with
alkaline water plays a critical role in your health and well being. As
the majority of the foods we eat, like soda pop, create acid wastes in
This particularly true as acid water (pH<7)
allows microorganisms, bacteria and viruses to grow and thrive. The
purpose of high pH (8.0 to 9.5) water for your health is not only
hydration for our bodies to use in the functions that it performs
daily, but also to help flush the body of acidic wastes, impurities and
Acid wastes from the lifestyles we lead, food and
we consume, stress in our lives, and pollutants we come across are all
dumped into the bloodstream and lymphatic system and then are
transported to the liver and kidneys to be removed and eliminated from
Alkaline water may well be the best supplement you can put in your body! The Japanese have researched this
for over forty years and have found that drinking restructured alkaline
water can relieve or reduce the three main causes for
pre-matureaging,sickness, disease and:
and Free Radicals.
Acidosis: The pH level
our bodies fluids affects every cell and being overly acidic can have
can have a big impact on the health of our bodies.
over acidic creates an extremely negative environment which affects all
cellular functions from the beatings of the heart to the brains
function. This condition is called acidosis.
all health care provider either alternative or mainstream, will agree
that most health problems, including cancer, begin in an acid
environment within the body. Most people don’t know that if your pH
drops below 5.8 you cannot absorb the vitamins A, B, E, F, and K. Nor
absorb valuable minerals like sulfur, potassium, calcium, vanadium,
chromium, iron, or zinc. It doesn't matter how much of these
supplements you consume, you may literally be flushing huge amounts of
money down the toilet.
We are meant to be alkaline on the
inside of our bodies. Alkaline water is the fastest and most efficient
way to alkalize your body. If you do not believe this I suggest you
or Die by Dr. Theodore A. Baroody.
Estimates are as high as 90% of the population is
dehydrated and they don’t even realize it. Research has proven a body
needs one-half of its weight in fluid ounces of water per day just to
remain properly hydrated.
All water does not hydrate
efficiently. One example is distilled water. It is devoid of all
minerals, extremely acidic, and will tend to dehydrate you. The average
pH of distilled water is 4.5, and that is almost 1000 times more acidic
than your blood, which has pH of 7.365.
Distilled water must be
neutralized within the body and if there is not calcium in
diet, your body will get it from other sources from within.
Reverse Osmosis water has many of the same
problems, no minerals
and an average pH of 5, more than 100 times more acidic than your
blood. Remember that most bottled water and even some purified spring
water use reverse osmosis in their bottling process.
Alkaline water is
slightly higher in pH than the blood, thereby relieving the stress on
the body to keep your pH balanced where it is supposed to be.
order to hydrate your body optimally, you should be drink water that is
alkalizing and mineral rich. This water also acts as a
conductor of electrochemical activity from cell to cell.
water should have a pH between 8 and 9.5. As you hydrate your body
properly, you’ll develop more of a thirst for water. Food cravings are
often the body’s cry for water. You might already have more of a thirst
than you even realize.
Free Radicals: Have been shown
be the major cause of premature aging. They are atoms, ions, and
molecules derived from oxygen that cause cellular damage within our
bodies. They are so destructive because they are missing an electron to
Free radicals seek out available molecular
electrons to bond to,
thus becoming balanced but in that process causing cellular damage in
our bodies. This damage contributes to aging as well as disease.
radicals are a part of the normal operations of our body and their
numbers are effected by our diet, amount of exercise, lifestyle habits,
as well as our environment.
The body’s defense system for free
radicals are called antioxidants. Antioxidants act as neutralizing
agents within the
body. They give up the necessary electron to the free radical and by
doing so block the damage to cells within the body. Antioxidants are
supplied by our diet and can be fortified by additional
supplementation. There is a lot of research showing a relationship
between antioxidants and the strength of our immune system.
water functions as a super liquid antioxidant! This is because it is
loaded with negative hydrogen ions to help neutralize free radicals and
rid your body of this acidic waste material. Sparing your cells from
the damage that leads to aging and disease. Just by drinking your ideal
daily goal you properly hydrate your body, rid yourself of acidic free
radicals and strengthen your immune system.
So what is Alkalized Water?
Alkaline water is the result of an electrolysis process. This process
actually electrifies the water between two points: a cathode (-) and an
anode (+). This separates the water into alkaline (70%) and acidic
water and concentrates the alkaline minerals and acidic
alkaline water minerals are potassium, magnesium, calcium and sodium.
The acidic water contains the acidic minerals which are chlorine,
fluoride, lead, sulfur and phosphorus.
Another process also takes
place during this electrolysis. The alkaline water molecule structure,
groups of H20 molecules, is reduced from approximately an 11
molecule clusters to a 5 or 6 molecule clusters. Its restructured size
gives it great permeability in our bodies allowing it to cross cellular
barriers more easily thus providing maximum hydration.
alkaline water also has an oxygen reduction potential (ORP).This rating
refers to how much anti-oxidation the water can perform. This relates
to the pH of the water and as you drink it, determines its
effectiveness as an antioxidant in your body. The higher the pH, the
more oxygen reduction potential as an antioxidant within your
Over time alkaline water has the ability to turn
your tissue into an
alkaline state and will begin to dissolve acid formed matter. Things
such as kidney stones and gall stones. The alkaline water has a pure
clean taste, is easy to drink and sometimes people say that it is a
“wetter water.” This is due to its smooth texture and reduced molecule
How do I get Alkaline Water?
we think of increasing the quality of our drinking water, we naturally
think of a water filter such as a Britta™. Make no mistake, these handy
and affordable filters go a long way towards making our drinking water
more beneficial and healthful. But if you are looking for life-giving,
energy-boosting nourishment from your drinking water then these really
will not do the job.
Taking your water from being something
that simply quenches your thirst to being
something that you crave due to the energy and vitality it gives you is
not a complex, difficult process, nor does it have to be expensive.
ionizers are products that ionize water. It's a machine that sits on
your kitchen counter and attaches to your faucet. This unit actually
turns your tap water into a liquid antioxidant. The treated water
contains mega electrons that act as scavengers that fight the free
radicals that are attacking your cells.
Unlike distilled or reverse
osmosis, the water contains sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium in
such a way that the body can absorb them better. It actually helps the
body to heal itself!
This is exceptionally beneficial as the alkaline water is then used for
drinking, while the acidic water can be used on the outside of the body
as it is proven to kill many types of bacteria.
How Else Can I Increase the Alkalinity of
home water ionizers will give you pure water with varying degrees of
alkalinity. If you chose not to purchase one of these units you can
still increase the alkalinity of your drinking water by doing the
either of the following:
- Squeezing fresh lemon or lime juice into the
- Adding an alkalizing, pH boosting supplement to the water such as
sodiun chlorite (NaC1O2) or hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). Adding five drops
per eight once glass of water.
