It is no news that we should make drinking water a habit in our lives. We are 70% water, and since we use water as part of our normal body functions, it is imperative to replenish it so we don’t become dehydrated, which can cause not only lethargy and lack of energy, but also disease.
What many people fail to understand is we need to replace water with water, and not everything we drink is serving hydrating purposes. Let me explain this a little further. The pH of our blood ranges between 7.35 and 7.45. When we drink things with this pH or higher, we are hydrating, or replenishing our reserves of available water and oxygen in our body. When we drink anything with a pH lower than that, our body needs to re-alkalize those liquids in order to properly absorb them. This means, our body needs to use its reserves to balance out what you just drank. Drinking any kind of liquid that has a low pH actually dehydrates you, and this is the reason why the percentage of people who are dehydrated is so high.
The healthiest and longer living people in the world drink water with a very high pH. And traditional Asian practice has been one of the secrets for their good health and long lives. Water Ionizers were developed with the purpose of separating the water in order to benefit from the best part of it. Drinking this alkaline water helps regulate the pH in the body which helps prevent disease and decay, increase your energy level and stamina, and slow down both the internal and external signs of aging.
Alkaline water also offers the benefit of being an antioxidant. As you may see on the graphic, a drink can either create oxydation or counteract oxydation. Remember those free radicals responsible for oxydation are also responsible for aging and disease. So the more antioxidants we consume through our food and water, the better able we will be to respond to those free radicals and protect our health.
A Water Ionizer has two water outlets, one is the alkaline water and the other is the acidic water. The alkaline water is ideal for consumption, this is your drinking water, and you can also use it for cooking or washing your fruits and vegetables. The acid water is excellent for all cleaning purposes around the house. It is also great for for cleaning your skin and your hair. The pH of your skin and hair is around 5, so it is acidic, this is the reason why using acidic water for cleaning them is so beneficial.
Next time you feel thirsty remember to go for a hydrating drink. Drinking a soda when you are thirsty will dehydrate you even more and can be harmful to your health in the long term. And when you do drink anything with a low pH, it is a good idea to also drink alkaline water to balance out the effect of that drink.
Cheers to your health!
