 Benefits of Alkaline Water 

  • Alkaline water is drinking water charged with negatively charged ions. It can be found naturally in some springs and ground waters in a few areas worldwide. It can also be produced through a process of electrolysis (also known as ionization) and by adding alkaline minerals to drinking water.

  • Alkaline water can have both good and bad minerals in it when produced through electrolysis, ionization, and in spring and ground water. The best way to have high quality alkaline drinking water is to add alkaline minerals to purified water.

  • Modern life and diets can lead to more acidic conditions within the body; the body should actually have more alkaline at a pH of 7.365; the body will go to great lengths to maintain this pH and acidic-alkaline balance which can put stress on bodily tissues, systems, and organs. Chronic acidity interrupts cellular activity and functions leading to negative health effects.

  • When the body gets too acidic and out of balance, it can cause low energy, fatigue, excess weight, poor digestion, aches, pains, and other health complications or disorders.

  • Through modern life and modern diet, the body ingests, creates, and improperly eliminates acids in the body which can lead to an acidic-alkaline imbalance. Other factors that can affect the acidic alkaline balance include stress, air pollution, and acidic contaminants found in many bottled waters.

  • The leading cause of low body pH and over acidity is the consumption of modern processed foods, meats, protein, and carbonated beverages.

  • The body pulls calcium from bones, magnesium from muscles, and iron from red blood cells to maintain the proper pH balance when there is not enough alkaline content available for use, creating bodily stress and often leading to bone & muscle loss, arthritis, and osteoporosis. The body stores ammonia in the kidneys to act as an alkaline buffer, which can cause kidney stones, endocrine imbalance, and cellular stress that leads to cancerous cells. Consuming alkaline water will cause the body to be more alkaline and prevents these damaging alkaline buffer processes from happening.

  • Alkaline water gives the body alkaline minerals and negatively charged ions to make maintaining the correct acidic-alkaline balance and pH more efficient.

  • Alkaline water, through supplying alkaline minerals, raises the pH of the body to counteract acidic conditions. Higher pH levels within the body reduce the need for cholesterol and fat to protect the body from damaging acids.

  • Alkaline water is known to be a very powerful antioxidant as well. The negatively charged ions in alkaline water allow for alkaline water to act as an antioxidant, which is known to reduce cellular and DNA damage caused by free radicals. This is because the negatively charged ions of alkaline water attract the positive ions of the acids and neutralize them so they can be removed from the body.

  • ‚ÄčAlkaline water is known to be a very powerful antioxidant also due to the smaller size of the molecules which allows the water molecules to be expelled and carry out toxins more efficiently.

  • Alkaline water is also known to be beneficial due to its ability to provide better, faster, and more efficient hydration. Alkaline water is composed of smaller molecules than traditional drinking water (5-6 ions alkaline vs. 11-16 ions in size) which allows them to diffuse through cell walls more efficiently. This increased efficiency allows for cells to be better hydrated, regulate temperature more efficiently, and transfer nutrients into cells more efficiently.

  • To maintain the optimal acidic-alkaline balance and hydration levels it is suggested to drink 3-4 liters per day of pH 9-10 water.

  • Alkaline water is also known to increase energy levels because their negative charge allows them to give ions to positive ions, thus increasing energy.

  • Many people believe cooking with alkaline water improves the taste of the food made.

  • Reports from studies suggest that alkaline water can slow aging, resist disease, and possibly cure cancer by:

    • Increasing intercellular respiration

    • Stabilizing and protecting cells

    • Maintaining optimal blood circulation and acidic-alkaline balance

    • Replenishing essential minerals

    • Preventing free radicals from forming and damaging cells

    • Removing waste and preventing waste from accumulating in body

  • Alkaline water is known to have the health benefits of:

    • Improves the immune system

    • Improves hydration and absorption of nutrients

    • Neutralizing and removing toxins

    • Improve blood circulation

    • Maintains the proper acidic-alkaline balance more efficiently

    • Prevent damage to cells caused by free radicals

    • Increased energy and vitality

    • Improving bodily function

    • Decrease bodily stress levels

  • Studies show that alkaline water in combination with glutathione (GSH) has enhanced apoptosis in HL-60 leukemia cells.

  • Studies suggest that alkaline water can resist cancer and down regulates the vascular endothelial growth factor that allows cancer to grow.

  • Studies suggest that alkaline water is an effective factor in preventing disease and cancer formation.

  • Many diseases and disorders stem from an improper acidic-alkaline balance in colloidal connective tissues while consuming alkaline water will aid the body in more efficiently maintaining the body pH and prevents the cellular stress that causes health conditions.
