The Benefits of Alkaline Water

benefits of alkaline waterIn recent years alkaline water has been one of the most popular trends among health-conscious individuals and within natural health communities. The reasons are compelling and scientifically valid as alkalinity plays a critical role in establishing homeostatic balance. Homeostasis is the state of overall internal equilibrium characterized by an 80/20 alkaline-acid ratio. The blood’s pH must fall within the very close range of 7.35 to 7.45. Serious health crises inevitably ensue when blood pH drops below 7.35. The pH of the human saliva and urine on the other hand should ideally be 7.2 or higher. By using pH test strips on either urine or saliva you can evaluate your body’s pH level as either acidic (<7) or alkaline (<7). The lower your pH, the more unhealthy and disease-prone you become.

Symptoms of chronic metabolic acidosis include insomnia, depression, premature aging, muscle stiffness, edema, constipation, headaches, irritability, osteoporosis, weight gain, poor digestion and assimilation of nutrients (resulting in gastrointestinal problems and malnutrition), allergies, arthritis, kidney stones, and chronic degenerative diseases such as cancer, diabetes, hypertension, and heart disease.

Acidosis is most commonly caused by:

  • Over-consumption of acidifying foods such as meat, eggs, dairy, refined sugar, grains (rice, corn, oats, wheat) and grain products (bread, pasta, noodles), deep-fried and overcooked foods, coffee, alcohol, and carbonated drinks
  • Eating foods full of pesticides, insecticides, heavy metals, hormones, antibiotics, and processed foods containing synthetic chemicals such as food color, bleach, antioxidants, and preservatives
  • Drinking dead, contaminated, or acidic water (including most city tap waters)
  • Breathing polluted air
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Smoking
  • Pharmaceutical drug use
  • Chronic stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • A lack of high quality, hydrating water

People are naturally slightly acidic in nature. Add one or more of the causes of acidosis above and you may have a truly acidic individual. Fortunately the solution is not as impractical or out of reach as it was ten years ago. With the Alkal-Life 7000sL Water Ionizer you’ll never need to settle for water that is barely above the recommended 7.0 pH. Instead, you can augment your own health and select higher alkaline settings, and vitalize your tap water with the same electrical charge found in natural spring water with the Alkal-Life 7000sL Water Ionizer.

Ionized alkaline water has numerous health benefits:

Alkaline, electrically charged water alkalizes the blood. Acidic blood has more hydrogen; alkaline blood on the other hand has higher oxygen levels. By increasing your blood’s oxygen level via the consumption of ionized alkaline water your blood is buffered almost effortlessly. Alkaline blood is one of the prerequisites to longevity. Disease simply cannot thrive and survive in highly oxygenated blood.

benefits of alkaline waterIonized alkaline water is a very potent detoxifying agent. Since the water from Alkal-Life 7000sL Water Ionizer is negatively charged, it will attract and bind with the toxins in your cells and bodily fluids (such as the blood and lymphatic or inter-cellular fluids) for effective elimination. All toxins are positively charged. Drinking water treated by the Alkal-Life over a period of time can significantly reduce systemic toxicity. Eating a clean, whole foods diet and using the BioMat in conjunction with Alkal-Life 7000sL will further magnify the healing and health-giving power of ionized alkaline water.

Clean, alkaline water flushes out the major cause of disease and aging. As your body’s pH goes higher, you lose more acids that are not just causing  disease but stubborn weight gain as well.  Drinking alkaline water slows down internal aging and reverses the physical signs of aging by ridding the body of excessive acid, quelling free radical damage, and providing cells with antioxidants.

Increase your cellular hydration! Alkal-Life Ionization reduces the size of water micro-clusters by one half of their original size, providing superior hydration and oxygenation to the cells.

The simultaneous detoxifying and nourishing action of ionized alkaline water strengthens immunity. Acidic cells are bloated, weak, and toxic cells. If your immune cells are acidic they won’t be able to defend your body from various diseases and infections. Ionized alkaline water solves this problem by removing stored acids from your cells and replacing them instead with oxygen and anti-oxidants. Immune function is optimized, increasing your resistance to disease and pathogens.

Using ionized alkaline water in making fruit smoothies and vegetable soups greatly increases the nutritional content and the rate of assimilation. The antioxidants present in alkaline water combine with the nutrients in the fruits and vegetables, creating a synergy more powerful than that produced by the fresh ingredients alone. Humans are bioelectric beings, and since the water is electrically charged, the absorption of nutrients is enhanced.

Clean and sweet-tasting alkaline water helps you kick unhealthy cravings without really trying. The deep detoxification process initiated and supported by the frequent consumption of ionized alkaline water automatically programs your body to reach out for healthy foods and drinks, those that your body was originally designed to consume such as natural whole foods.
