What are some of the Benefits of Alkaline Water?
Numerous studies have proven that alkaline water has a positive effect on the body. Here are some of the findings:
1. Powerful Antioxidant
Alkaline water has been found to be high in antioxidants. This is good news as the body is exposed to free radical damage every day through the air, food, water, skin, etc. Free radicals have the capacity to harm the immune system leaving you open to infection and various diseases. By drinking alkaline water you can help protect your body to combat the effects of free radicals in your environment.
2. Balances the pH Levels of the Body
The body has an innate intelligence which seeks to keep your pH level within a tight pH range. Outside of this ‘safe’ pH range you would essentially die in a short space of time. Typically our western diet is highly acidic. If we continue for many years on a diet that is very acidic the body will deposit acid wastes where disease will thrive. Disease thrives in acidic conditions. Alkaline water helps neutralize the acid levels in the body, thereby providing a more healthful environment for your cells.
3. Promotes Better Hydration
The smaller molecular content of alkaline water makes it easier for your body to absorb. This means your body is being hydrated much more effectively than if you were to drink straight tap water.
4. Helps Detoxify the Body
We all know that we need sufficient water every day to maintain good health and to flush out toxins. Alkaline water such as is found in Aqua Mountain Alkaline water filter systems delivers water that is free of harmful chemicals and impurities such as bacteria. This means the body can more easily carry out the detoxification process because of the purity of the water.
5. Boosts the Immune System
Excess amounts of acid present in your body weaken your immune system and can cause several diseases. On the other hand, if your body is alkaline, it will function better. Alkaline water acts to neutralize the acids present in the body and enables it to flush out the toxic, acidic waste. As it is rich in antioxidants Alkaline water assists your body to fight the aging process and numerous degenerative diseases.Because the alkaline water is able to reduce the build up of acidic waste in your body it makes your body less susceptible to degenerative diseases including gout, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure as well as heart disease.
6. Can Help Weight Loss
The typical western diet includes a lot of ‘fast foods’ which are highly acidic to the body. As a result, the body creates more fat cells to neutralize the acid buildup. This inevitably leads to weight gain. As alkaline water neutralizes acids in the body, the body will no longer need to keep producing extra fat cells. This means drinking alkaline water can significantly assist weight loss as fat storage is reduced. A body that is at a healthy level of alkalinity will lose weight more effectively than a body with a high level of acidity.
7. May Assist the Body to Fight Cancer
Cancer cells thrive in an acidic environment. A healthy body requires a pH level of approx 7.0 to 7.2. By drinking alkaline water you have a better chance of providing a healthy pH level in your body where cancer cells cannot survive. Cancer cells do not live in a neutral pH environment. Besides including more alkaline foods into your diet, drinking alkaline water can be an effective cancer prevention.
8. Assists in Preventing Diabetes
Some studies have confirmed there is an important relationship between alkaline water and our sugar intake. Dr. Theodore Baroody talks in his study about the dependency of our pancreas on correct alkaline diets. As a result, the pancreas will produce alkaline digestive enzymes and sodium bicarbonate, reducing the acidity excess. Dr Baroody states – “The pancreas also regulates blood sugar balance which creates energy in body. Thus, to have proper blood sugar balance, maintain a primarily alkaline-forming diet.”
Drinking alkaline water can help keep your body at a healthy pH level – out of the harmful acid pH levels which have been linked with diabetes.
9. Can Help Relieve Psoriasis
Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis are both relieved by drinking alkaline water. Body wastes are acidic in nature. Your liver and kidney, the primary organs responsible for eliminating toxins from the body, are continuously working to eliminate these acidic toxins from your body to keep your blood pure and healthy. Your skin plays an important role by providing an exit to these acidic toxins in the form of psoriasis scales on various parts of your body. Alkaline water neutralizes the acidic toxic residues accumulated in the body cells. The cleansing and detoxifying effect of drinking water can be multiplied if we convert this water into alkaline water.
As your body is made up of more than 60-70% water, then you can’t ignore the importance of drinking alkaline water for psoriasis treatment. Out of all the water you drink, replace 2 litres with alkaline water. You can drink this much amount of alkaline water everyday without any after effects.
10. Can Give More Energy and Increase Metabolism
Alkaline water optimizes blood pH to increase oxygen level. This has the effect of speeding up the body metabolism and making you feel more energetic.
There are many more benefits of Alkaline Water for your body and overall health. Suffice it to say that the more proactive we can be in raising the pH level in the body the better our health will be.
