Alkaline water, also known as ionized water, is water that is neither acidic nor neutral on the pH scale, having a level above 7. The pH level of all water varies dependent on the source for that water. Experts state that natural water from a spring typically has a pH that is acidic. Alkaline water will help neutralize acid in the bloodstream, leading to increased oxygen levels as well as increased energy and metabolism.
Alkaline water detoxifies your body to remove normal acidic waste products accumulated daily. It also removes toxins accumulated in your body from your environment, prescription drugs, unnatural foods and from the “normal” process of aging. Acid wastes collected in the body can lead to more serious health conditions. Drinking alkaline water daily can neutralize the acidity and wash acid waste products from cells and tissues.
Alkaline water acts as an antioxidant, scavenging for and neutralizing harmful free radicals. Because alkaline water has the ability to give up electrons, it can effectively neutralize and block free-radical damage to the body. Ionized alkaline water seeks out free radicals and converts them into oxygen which your body can use for energy production and tissue oxygenation.
Other benefits of alkaline water are that it will help to cleanse the organs; particularly the colon. As this unclean buildup in the colon continues, it eventually becomes poisonous and in some cases lethal. Using alkaline water is safe and will easily remove this fecal material. It will remove build up that is weeks or even years old and this leads to a more thorough and effective process of elimination. This helps decrease the recurrence of constipation and other unhealthy issues. As you drink it regularly (daily) and keep the system cleansed and in good working order you will become less susceptible to stomach viruses, flu’s, colds, and other illnesses that are fairly common.
