Alkaline Water Filters and Good Health
We all know that drinking plenty of water is good for us. It seems to be the home-made remedy to just about every common ailment. ‘Drink plenty of water’ is advice regularly uttered by our doctor. Our mother’s have often told us the same thing. So have our partners when we’re run down. So it’s commonly accepted that water is a good thing.
But if you are going to be flooding your bellies with the stuff, you want to be drinking the best water. And to get the best water, you need a water ionizer with alkaline water filters. That’s because, whilst water is good for you, it’s not quite all good. Here are the reasons why.
Alkaline Water Filters Protect Against Contaminated Water
Water from taps without a water ionizer with alkaline water filters pours straight into your glass from a long way away. It looks crystal clear and is perfectly drinkable, so what’s the problem, you may ask? Well, because it has been on such a long journey to get to the pipes in your house, it is inevitable that it will have picked up contaminants on its journey. Water supply pipes suffer from leaks, cracks, rust and joints. To combat this, a small amount of chlorine (that pungent chemical that gives swimming pools their smell) is added to the water supply to act as a disinfectant. And whilst the chlorine in tap water kills bacteria, it’s a dangerous chemical element that can harm our well-being. It can cause problems to our respiratory system, cause irritation to our eyes and skin, damage the mucous system in our nose and mouth, and trigger allergic reactions in certain individuals.
If that is not bad enough, traces of fluoride, benzene, lead, bromate and other hazardous chemicals can be found in our water when there are no alkaline water filters present. And you don’t want those inside you.
Alkaline Water Filters Guard Against Acidic Water
Contaminants and chemicals in water without alkaline water filters effects a negative change on its chemical balance too.
In order to better understand why this is, we need to look at water at a molecular level. Water molecules are network-like structures that become hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions. Alkaline and acidic H2O contain both H plus and OH ions. When the H plus exceeds that of OH, the liquid becomes acidic. On the other hand, if it’s the other way around and there are more OH ions, the liquid is alkaline. So simply speaking, the more alkaline a water is, the more antioxidants it contains.
The pH level determines the alkalinity or acidity of a water, so If you want healthier water with more antioxidants, its pH should be above 7. The ideal pH level for pure drinking water is an 8 or a 9 in fact, which can be achieved by using alkaline water filters and the water electrolysis chamber inside each water ionizer.
Unfortunately, impurities in filter-free tap water tends to tip the scale toward higher acidity. And if you drink acidic water too much, your body gets stripped of its nutrients and minerals in a process called oxidization. This will leave your body cells more vulnerable to disease. Alkaline water filters in water ionizers can act as a guard against these harmful effects.
Alkaline Water Filters Ensure Healthier Drinking Water
Research has shown that drinking alkaline water from water ionizers with alkaline water filters has many benefits to our health. State of the art alkaline water filters inside water ionizers can help pump water with powerful antioxidants that destroy free radicals in our bodies that can damage our cells.
And it’s these free radicals which we are exposed to on a daily basis – from pollution, smoking, lack of exercise, or a bad diet – that stay in our body and leave us more vulnerable to developing disease.
What Alkaline Water Filters Can Do For You
So, not only can alkaline water filters, as part of a water ionizer, help restore your body’s pH balance by improving cellular hydration and reduce our body cell oxidative stress levels through good water, they can also supply your body with more oxygen. And the off-shoot of that? More energy!
When you have more oxygen in your body, you’ll also notice that not only will you have more energy, but your brain function improves, stress levels will decrease, and depression is more easily warded off.
So when you think about it, investing in a water ionizer with alkaline water filters is a no-brainer really.
To your health,
