What is Alkaline Water?
Put simply, alkaline water is drinking water that’s less acidic than your run of the mill tap water. Pure water is neutral with a pH ranking of 7.0, neither an acid nor a base. It is the reference point for acids and bases. Although the pH of pure water is 7 (neutral), most drinking water and natural water exhibits a variation in pH range because it contains dissolved minerals, gasses and municipal additives such as chlorine and flouride. Water with a pH less than 7 is considered acidic; whereas water with a pH higher than 7 is considered basic, or alkaline. Advocates of alkaline water believe that it can offset the acid in your bloodstream and help you metabolize nutrients more effectively, leading to better health and performance.
But Why is Alkaline Drinking Water Good For Me?
Your body will function more efficiently when it’s alkaline pH balanced. An unhealthy diet, stress and a lack of exercise can all contribute to an improper pH balance. Eating fried foods, red meat & carbs only add to this issue. Drinking alkaline water and reducing the alkalinity of the foods and liquids you intake can help to better regulate your body’s pH levels. Read on to learn more about the health benefits of drinking alkaline water.
Health Benefits of Drinking Alkaline Water:
ALKALIZING YOUR BODY’S pH
An unhealthy diet, stress and a lack of exercise can all contribute to an improper pH balance. Eating fried foods, red meat & carbs only add to this issue. Drinking alkaline water and/or using alkaline concentrate drops daily can help neutralize acid in your blood stream.
ANTIOXIDANTS & OXYGENATION
Alkaline water with a higher pH functions as an antioxidant. Mineral-rich, high-alkaline antioxidant water can neutralize damaging free radicals because alkaline rich water has the potential to give up electrons. This acts as a neutralizing agent, effectively blocking free-radical damage. Ionized alkaline drinking water seeks out these harmful free radicals converting them into oxygen which your body can use.
Electrolytes are minerals in your blood and other body fluids that carry an electric charge. Electrolytes are critical to every function in the body. They play key roles in keeping water balanced both inside and outside of cells so muscles and organs continue to work properly. When electrolyte levels are off, muscles can become weak (or contract too severely). Dehydration and electrolyte imbalances can adversely impact health and exercise performance. Drinking electrolyte mineral-infused water is a much healthier way to give the body what it needs.
Alkaline drinking water contains important alkaline minerals such as magnesium and calcium which can be extremely re-hydrating and leave you feeling more energized. This is a result of filtering via electrolysis. The process of making alkaline water using electrolysis filtration and ionization removes contaminants, leaving only the desired vital minerals.
Not only does alkaline drinking water arguably provide you the best hydration potential possible; it also replenishes necessary organic alkaline minerals that help to naturally expel toxins. Detoxifying your body tends remove typical acidic waste from your daily food routine. Alkaline water is also believed to remove toxins that accumulate in your body from pollution of the environment. Drinking alkaline water or using alkaline concentrate drops can help neutralize the acidic builds-up that occurs in your body and flushes acid waste byproducts from cells & tissues.
