1. ALKALINE WATER NEUTRALIZES HARMFUL ACIDS
Drinking alkaline water helps to neutralize harmful acids that form in the body due to acid forming foods and beverages that we consume. You will be surprised at what makes our bodies acidic.
2. DRINKING ALKALINE WATER PREVENTS LOSS OF CALCIUM
When our bodies are over – acidic they need something alkaline for balance to be restored. Alkaline water is a powerful alkaline substance. Without alkaline water the body will take calcium which is also alkaline to mop up the acids in our bodies but at a huge cost to our health, for example,
- It will take calcium from our teeth, bones and nerve endings which may lead to calcium deficiency problems like osteoporosis, sleep problems, nerve pain and nail biting.
- Meat causes over – acidity in our bodies so this is going to result in the loss of calcium. because when the body digests protein it forms acids and again the body will lose calcium. Note: A study in the Journal of Nutrition in 1981 found that doubling your protein intake doubled your calcium loss. So if you are a meat lover you need alkaline water!
- Alkaline water also makes calcium more bio-available which means the body can absorb and use this essential health giving mineral.
- .All the nerve endings in our bodies are coated in calcium and because drinking alkaline water minimizes calcium loss, we are able to relax better, we are able to sleep better and we are less likely to experience nerve pain which in many cases is the cause of back problems.
3. DRINKING ALKALINE WATER SUPER – HYDRATES THE BODY:
Normal tap water is measured in clusters of between 12-16 compared with alkaline water which is measured in smaller clusters of 5-8 clusters.
- Alkaline water penetrates our cells at a deep level causing super hydration.
- The body absorbs alkaline water better than ordinary water.
- Alkaline water hydrates the body / skin up to six times more effectively than other water.
- Skin looks younger and fresher. No more need for expensive skin creams!!
4. ALKALINE WATER IS A POWERFUL ANTIOXIDANT:
Billions are spent on antioxidant supplements / products every year. Now you can have a powerful antioxidant pouring from your kitchen tap.
Antioxidant – what is it?
- An antioxidant protects the cells of our body from oxidation. A simple example of oxidation is when a sliced apple is exposed to oxygen (air) and it turns brown (oxides). This type of oxidation occurs inside our bodies.
- Vitamin E and vitamin C are just two examples of antioxidant supplements. Many fruits and vegetables have antioxidant properties and should be part of a healthy diet for e.g. berries, kale, carrots and spinach.
- Even the air we breathe, pollution, and smoking cause oxidation. Oxidation occurs when the cells are exposed to unstable molecules called free radicals.
- Free radical molecules can be very unstable and are missing an electron.
- Antioxidant rich alkaline water is full of electrons and it gives its extra or spare electrons to the free radical making it stable.
- Therefore antioxidant rich alkaline water prevents cell damage, the cause of many auto-immune and degenerative diseases
5. IONIZED ALKALINE WATER IS ALIVE AND FULL OF ENERGY:
- The ionizing (which means adding or subtracting an electron) process electrically charges the water (called electrolysis).
- It separates alkaline and acidic ions in the water leaving:
- Healthy mineral-rich hydrating alkaline drinking water.
- Acidic water for skin problems or anti-bacterial use.
- Ionized water is alive and full of energy as opposed to bottled, stored, tap water and reverse osmosis water which is considered dead water.
6. ALKALINE WATER IS ESSENTIAL FOR WEIGHT LOSS
- You need to be fully hydrated to reach and maintain your ideal weight.
- Alkaline water is essential to optimal hydration.
- A dehydrated body will be acidic and will consequently hold onto fat.
- It makes sense to keep the body alkaline by eating alkaline foods and drinking high pH alkaline water.
- Then the body will release fat and help you lose those unwanted pounds naturally.
