What is Alkalizing?
Alkalizing is where you change the structure of your drinking water. Tap water and most bottled waters are acidic, with a pH of lower than 7.0. To make alkalizing water, we need to increase the pH to at least 7.5, but preferably higher to about 9.5. This restructuring of your drinking water makes it more alkaline. This is important as our body has a natural pH of about 7.1 – slightly alkaline.
Importance of Minerals
Through the use of filtration systems, minerals are often lost while trying to eliminate chemicals. The loss of sodium, calcium, potassium, and magnesium from water will result in serious problems to the brain, kidney, heart, and nervous system. Getting the right balance between water intake and the level of minerals is vital.
Alkalizing water is absorbed into the body tissues more quickly than tap water. This helps to improve the speed of cellular growth and renewal. Higher oxygen levels of alkaline water make it more efficient at supporting the cells for assimilation of nutrients and neutralizing acids.
Drinking alkaline water acts as an antioxidant and rids free radicals from our drinking water and body through a process of ionization.
Our body thrives in an alkaline environment. Therefore, no disease can exist in an alkaline body. Disease exists only in a body that is not at ease and is fighting to get back to balance and harmony.
Obesity is a disease and can easily be treated through drinking alkaline water and eating alkaline foods. Weight loss can be dramatic as a body that is properly alkaline is able to rid itself of unwanted fat and acids.
Any disease or disorder will be eliminated from the body once in an alkaline state.
How to Alkalize Water
A simple way to alkalize your water is with a dash of baking soda. Adding lemon or lime juice or liquid minerals to water can also help to alkalize the water.
There are now supplements available to alkalize water, usually in the form of drops and powders. The best ones contain essential minerals such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium.
By drinking healthy water, you will help to protect yourself from any illness. Alkalizing results in boundless energy, toxin detoxification, and a stronger immune system.
