Alkaline water is water that measures anywhere above 7 on the pH scale. If you are unfamiliar with the term, pH is used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. In the case of water its pH level is 7 and lies perfectly in the middle of the scale which ranges from 1 to 14. Solutions with a pH measurement below 7 is considered acidic and solutions above 7 are basic or alkaline hence the term alkaline water.
Alkaline water is produced by running normal everyday water through a water ionizing machine. Such a machine separates the water into two components – acidic and alkaline. The resulting alkaline water has a pH balance close to 8 and is about at the ceiling safe level for human consumption. And the acidic water does not go to waste either as it is ideal for watering plants and cooking.
Consuming alkaline water is said to benefit the human body because of the generous amounts of antioxidants it supplies. Antioxidants as you know combat the damage done to your body by free radicals and in effect puts the ageing process at bay as well as strengthen the immune system. Alkaline water, or ionized water as it is also called, also delays the progress of degenerative diseases like arthritis, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
And because of the alkaline nature of ionized water, the human body’s chemistry is balanced out. The imbalance in the body’s chemistry is caused by excessive consumption of soda’s and processed food that you can’t really avoid eating unless you employ an organic diet and lifestyle. By drinking alkaline water you can help your body regain its balance.
Many have testified to the improvements that alkaline water has done to improve their health. These real people feel healthier and ailments that plagued them before have significantly lessened.
Ionizing machines that produce alkaline water is available for everyone but it does carry with it quite a hefty price tag. An example of these ionizing machines, the Kangen Water Machine, can cost as much as PhP 200,000. But don’t let the price alone put you off.
Think about this. A good health and lifestyle are among the best investments you can make. And just like any investment it will cost you money. However the payout you will receive from investing in your health will be repaid tenfold in the long run.
And if the machine is not for you, you can still get your supply of ionized water from bottled variants like the Bottled Kangen Water.
