Acidic Water vs Akaline Water
Improve your health, supercharge your immune system, and fight the aging process with antioxidant-rich alkaline water! The benefits of ionized alkaline water are vast and remarkable!
What is alkaline water?
Walk into a convenience store and go to the drink cooler. You’ll probably see an array of choices for water. What’s up with all these waters? Natural spring water is much higher priced than the generic brands, but it also boasts to be from natural springs. Water from natural springs is called alkaline water.
To understand the recent trend of alkaline water, we need to understand some fundamental acid-base chemistry. Alkaline water has a higher pH than other sources of water, so let’s start with what pH means. pH measures the concentration of free hydrogen ions in a solution. The equations for analyzing the concentration ions are complex, so the number we use for pH is inverse to (or the reverse of) the amount of hydrogen ions in the substance. Having a lot of hydrogen ions means the solution is very acidic and that it has a low pH level and rating. Solutions with very few hydrogen ions are not acidic and have a high pH level and rating.
We call solutions that have a low pH acidic, and we call solutions that have a high pH basic, or alkaline. Basic solutions have a lot of hydroxide ions, which have a negative charge. The scale for pH ranges from 0 (the most acidic) to 14 (the most basic). A solution with a pH of 0 is pure sulfuric acid, or close to the acid in our stomachs, which has a pH of 1.5-3.5! A solution with a pH of 14 is pure sodium hydroxide. Our bodies, for reference, have a pH around 7, and most tap water is a similar pH. Alkaline water, in contrast, usually has a pH around 9 or higher. It contains basic minerals such as calcium, magnesium, or bicarbonate. These compounds bind to hydrogen ions in solution, making the water more base.
The 5 Major Alkaline Water Benefits:
Alkaline water detoxifies your body to remove normal acidic waste products accumulated daily. Plus it remove toxins accumulated in your body from your environment, prescription drugs, unnatural foods and from the “normal” process of aging. Note: Acidic wastes collected in the body can lead to more serious health conditions. Drinking alkaline water daily can help neutralize the acidity that builds up in the body and wash acid waste products from cells and tissues.
Alkaline water hydrates 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 is rich in important alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium, and it’s super-hydrating and energizing as a result of electrolysis filtering. Ionized alkaline water is filtered and ionized, removing the harmful contaminants and leaving only the vital minerals.
3. OXYGENATE / ANTIOXIDANTS
Higher alkaline pH 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. Note: Cancer and most other illnesses cannot survive in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.
4. ALKALIZE YOUR BODY’S pH
Alkaline rich 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. It is important to alkalize your bodies pH, from acidic to alkaline pH, as cancer and many other illnesses cannot live in alkaline environments. Alkaline is the “normal” state of healthy persons. Restoring the proper pH balance of the body leads a boost in energy and overall health and wellness.
5. ENHANCE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Alkaline water enhances your immune system to maximize your body’s ability to fight off disease and heal itself. A pH imbalance (due to highly acidic diets the majority of people eat) can cause the body’s cells to suffocate. When this happens, those cells start breaking down and eventually die. As a result, the systems that support the immune system become weakened by the suffocation and therefore the immune system starts to break down. Proof: Alkaline (commonly called living) water and acidic (commonly called dead) water have different impact on germination of seeds. Alkaline or living water accelerates the germination process of seeds, while acidic or dead water inhibits germination and blocks growth and development.
