Alkaline Water: The healthy drink you should be choosing more of | Mr Vitamins

Water is water isn’t it? Well yes and no… not all water is equal.

For example, when your body becomes too acidic due to exposure to environmental toxins, bad diet, and stress, regular tap water can’t help alkalize your body due to its contaminants and chemical toxins. An acid or toxic body is the perfect breeding ground for sickness and disease. Alkaline water helps you stay healthy by neutralizing acidity in your body.

Benefits of drinking alkaline water

  • Detoxifies your body
  • Fights free radicals that cause disease and aging
  • Provides vital antioxidants
  • Helps balance the body’s PH Levels
  • Boosts the immune system

What is alkaline water?

Usually created using an ionizing Water Filter, Alkaline water is water that has been separated into alkaline and acid particles by natural electrolysis in the Magnesium and Calcium ions. The acid particles are then removed.

Alkaline water supports your health

  • Balances PH levels. Your body is constantly fighting a battle with acid from everything from the foods you eat to your environment both physical and mental. This type of water helps your pH level stay balanced. Cancer and other diseases cannot flourish in an alkaline environment.
  • Detoxification. Toxins are everywhere and your body is constantly exposed to and affected by them. Alkaline water helps neutralizes the toxins, flushes them out of your body before they have a chance to do damage. Toxins in your body can create cellular damage that causes aging and disease. They also create stress on your kidneys and liver whose job it is to filter them out.
  • Hydration.Alkaline water has the unique ability to increase hydration in your body. The alkalization process makes the water form small clusters that help your whole body; even your cells stay hydrated.
  • Oxygen.Your body needs oxygen to survive so it’s not surprising that your cells crave oxygen too. Alkaline water has negative ions that bind to free radicals and turn them in to cell supporting oxygen. Free radicals are like toxins that cause cellular damage, disease and aging.
  • Supports Immune system. Your immune system doesn’t have to work as hard in an alkaline body. Supporting the immune system is essential for keeping your body disease free.

How to make your own alkaline water

Although there are ionizing water filters that can be used to create alkaline water, you can make alkaline water yourself ate home:
  • 1 litre of Purified or Filtered Water
  • 1 Lemon cut into sections
  • 1 teaspoon of Himalayan Salt
Mix together in the evening and let sit until morning. Drink first thing in the morning before eating. This method creates water that is alkaline but is not as effective or has all the same benefits of ionized alkaline water from a special water filter. Make your water really count by making it alkaline and help your body to stay well. ‘Ask a naturopath’ for more information on how alkaline water can work for you.
