Everyone knows that drinking H2O is good for you, but could there be a way to make it even better? Water is needed by our body because it regulates our body temperature by the processes like sweating, digestion, etc. It also helps our body to remove waste from our body. Alkaline water has been praised for its claim of having a multitude of health benefits, including weight loss, clear skin and even fighting cancer. However, many have no idea that there is a major difference between plain alkaline and ionized alkaline water.
Alkalinity is all the buzz these days. The human body has developed over thousands of years and it was not until these latter years that the food choices became more toxic. Early on, people ate more natural and healthier foods, than now because many are in a hurry and grab the easiest and quickest option. In other words, we now have this modern acidic diet. To counteract all of these bad acidic producing foods, an alkalized diet has been promoted for many years now.
Unfortunately, today, with low-cost production and big agriculture, our diets have turned into acidic producing machines. To this wise, the body has become difficult to alkalize. However, by working to alkalize our bodies, scientists believe many of the diseases and health challenges we face would disappear.
However, to try and alkalize our bodies the natural way by implementing a dietary overhaul can be exhausting and expensive. So, the remedy would be to drink an alkalized, negative ion based beverage. Alkaline ionized water is a great alternative to help pull the human body back to a healthier position against free radicals.
Ionized water can be either alkaline or acidic. Alkaline ionized water has alkaline minerals in it. Conversely, acidic ionized water from an ionizer has carbonate in it, which makes it a dilute solution of carbonic acid. The minerals in alkaline ionized water – mostly calcium, magnesium, and potassium – gain electrons from the ionization process. The extra electrons give the H2O a negative electrical charge. That charge gives it antioxidant potential.
Drinking alkaline ionized water on a daily basis helps neutralize the acid to maintain or restore the body’s optimal pH balance. When the body is in equilibrium, multiple self-regulating control mechanisms are able to operate in ideal conditions to efficiently deliver nutrients to cells and to dissolve and eliminate waste products through the body’s natural elimination channels.
One of the richest sources of antioxidants is alkaline ionized water. This enhancement is very negatively charged, which neutralizes free radicals. It is easily absorbed into the body due to the fact that the water clusters are small in size. Hence, being able to effectively neutralize free radicals without the need to be metabolized. Free radicals are unstable molecules that cause oxidation in the body, causing cellular and DNA damage that ultimately leads to the onset of various diseases and that leads to premature aging as well.
Another benefit of alkaline ionized water is it super-hydrates the body. Our bodies are made up of over 60 percent H2O. You lose water each day when you go to the bathroom, sweat, and even when simply breathing. This occurs even faster when the weather is really hot, with physical activity, or with a fever. Vomiting and diarrhea can also lead to rapid water loss. If you fail to replace the water you lose, dehydration is the result.
In fact, all the healing processes that happen in the body occur through H2O. This is why it is vital to stay hydrated and to drink only “quality” water. The antioxidants in alkaline ionized water are able to slow down the harmful process of free radicals by donating electrons to oxygen free radicals, this way helping them become stable oxygen molecules.
A lot of people understand the importance of drinking water. However, what some fail to realize is that all water is not equal. Alkalized water is much better than tap water which flows through dirty pipes. But why settle for better, when best is an affordable option. Others have come to understand that alkalized negatively-ionized water is loaded with benefits and is the best choice for health. On the other hand, there still exist people out there who try to dismiss its amazing capabilities. Essentially, because they are not well informed.
Many studies confirm the benefits of negatively charged alkalized water. It is time to elevate and unleash the power of negative ions; experience the benefits of alkalinity, and hydrate like never before. Do the research and learn the possibilities of a healthier and more fulfilling life. Go ahead, do the research and learn the possibilities of a healthier and more fulfilling life simply by changing the type of water you drink.
