What if…something as simple as changing the water you drink could have a profound impact on both the mental and physical health of you and your family?
Did you know that bottled water, filtered water, distilled water and reverse osmosis water are usually acidic, even though some harmful chemicals may have been removed? Did you know that by drinking these waters your body may become acidic? Did you know that if you are eating acidic and processed foods and/or under emotional, mental or environmental stress your body is likely to be acidic? Yes it is true, you are what you eat and drink.
The human body is comprised of over 70% water. So it should come to no surprise that the quality of the water you drink can have an impact on your health. Think about a fish tank. If it’s properly maintained with clean water, at the proper pH, you’ll have healthy fish. But if the water gets out of balance or polluted, the fish can get sick. The solution!!! You can try to fix the water, or you can drain the tank and start over with fresh healthy water and probably some new fish.
It’s a similar concept with our bodies. If you consume large quantities of acidic beverages and foods, your digestive system is constantly battling trying to keep things in check. Most people don’t realize that many of the most popular bottled waters are acidic. We’re overfed and undernourished… The US population suffers from one of the biggest obesity problems in the world. Some of the fastest selling medications are designed to combat acid reflux and heartburn. You see many of them advertised on TV and in magazines. You may be taking one or more of them yourself. Ionized Alkaline Water is full of powerful anti-oxidants. What are antioxidants? Anti-oxidants are substances such as vitamins C and E, beta carotene and selenium, that may prevent damage to your cells or even repair damage that has been done. Anti-oxidants may also improve immune function and perhaps lower your risk for infection and cancer. Anti-oxidants work by slowing or preventing the damage caused by free radicals that can lead to cell dysfunction and the onset of problems like heart disease and diabetes*. *American Diabetes Association While the body has its own defenses against oxidative stress, these defenses are thought to become less effective as we age. Research suggests that free radicals play a part in a number of degenerative diseases associated with aging, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer’s. **International Food Information Council (FIC) Ionized Alkaline Water contains large quantities of negatively charged ions that act as anti-oxidants in the body. Research has proven that sickness and disease thrive in an acidic environment, and cannot live in an alkaline environment. Ionized Alkaline Water can help the body eliminate more toxins, hydrate more cells, and provide an easy source of anti-oxidants. The scientific community agrees that water is the most abundant compound on our planet, and they also agree that there is so much they still do not understand about water. So please, have an open mind, and open your mouth, try it.
