Drinking plenty of water daily is the wisest steps you can take to maintain good health. Unfortunately, not all water is of good quality. Tap water is much different than bottled water, and bottled waters also available in varieties. Most bottled waters are acidic, unhealthy and expensive and can leach toxins from the plastic bottle damaging your body.
According to health experts, alkaline drinking water is considered to be the healthiest water for the body and the most superior drinking water. Alkaline water is one of the most powerful antioxidant, which also provides our body with an abundance of oxygen which in turn gives us energy. The alkaline drinking water can balance the body's pH, and thus prevent diseases in the human body. Alkaline water can also make food taste better, assist vitamin and antioxidant absorption, and generally help the body digest food more efficiently.
The human body is naturally about a 7.4 on the pH scale, which means that it is slightly alkaline. To help the body maintain its pH balance, it is necessary to ingest alkaline foods while avoiding acid foods. In fact, many experts believe that the human diet should be as much as 80 percent alkaline foods, with only 20 percent of our calories coming from acid foods. Drinking alkaline water can also help keep the body toward the right end of the scale.
Many people don't realize that alkaline foods can make a huge difference in their health and overall well-being. For ages, man has suffered from acidity. Its effects are digestive problems, ulcers, low energy, fatigue, vulnerability to cold and even obesity. The cause of acidity is the imbalance in alkaline-acid level in body fluids. The cure is drinking alkaline water to restore the balance.
Let's remember the reason we need to increase our alkaline water intake: to remove impurities, toxins and acids from our health system and to provide pure water for our bodies to use.
