Drinking Alkaline Water Doesn’t Fix Your Health Issues
If you come the internet, you will find many sites touting the benefits of drinking alkaline water. They are usually selling products like pitchers, tablets, capsules, and special filters to make your tap water or bottled water alkaline. You will see many claims along with these products such as balancing your body’s pH, reducing the risk for disease, treating existing diseases, etc. But don’t listen to it. Alkaline water alone is not going to make you healthier.
Water in the US is Naturally Alkaline
To understand why alkaline water alone won’t make you healthier, you really only need to look at the source water throughout the US. Source water in the US tends to be on the harder side. That means that it is naturally full of alkaline mineral such as magnesium and calcium. In the southern parts of the US, there is so much magnesium and calcium in the water that it congeals together to form scale.
If you live in Texas, Florida, Arizona, New Mexico, Southern California and many other places, your water is already super alkaline and full of alkaline minerals. But does that make you healthier? No. Statistically, people who drink the hard alkaline water in the southern us are not healthier than people who drink the softer water in the Northern parts of the US. That alone tells us that drinking alkaline water does not make us healthier.
You can also look at it this way: our diets are already rich in alkaline minerals. You get them from the meat that you eat, the vegetables, and many of the beverages that you drink besides water. The average American is exposed to more than their daily need for magnesium, calcium and other alkaline minerals. So these products like the pitchers and the capsules that are making your water more alkaline by adding alkaline minerals, are not doing you any favors at all.
Alkaline Ionized Water WILL Make You Healthier
The reason why alkaline ionized water is beneficial to your health is because of the extra ion that it has to give. When water is ionized, it is no longer H2O, it is OH-. The negative in that equation is the extra ion that it has to give to your body. This ion is called a hydroxyl ion. The hydroxyl ion encounters an unstable oxygen molecule, known as a free radical in your cells and it stabilizes it. This is what they call an antioxidant.
Alkaline ionized water is full of antioxidants, more than virtually any other natural source. So the net result is a whole lot of those free radicals are neutralized and they are no longer bouncing around and doing damage to your cells, and thus your cells get healthier. This helps you to recover from any illness or disease that you are facing, it also helps your body prevent getting sick in the future.
The next time you’re combing the internet and you see claims about alkaline water, remember that drinking alkaline water alone is not going to make you healthier. You need an energy source and in the case of a water ionizer like the ones made by EOS, the energy source is premium water electrolysis made by the best and highest quality plates in the world. This water electrolysis replicates the sun’s natural process of creating antioxidants, and it is one of the best ways to introduce healthy antioxidants to your diet.
To your health!
