Weight Loss and Alkaline Water: Why it Works
Water for Life USA sponsored the Healthy Weight Loss Challenge in the Montgomery County area of Maryland in 2012 where we gave 12 contestants a free Genesis Water Ionizer and they drank EOS ionized water for a three month period. The contestants were wildly successful in losing weight, but what is the real connection between ionized alkaline water and weight loss?
For many years now blogs, published articles, and even celebrity doctors and health practitioners have been pushing ionized alkaline water as a way to lose weight. But many Americans remain skeptical and that’s understandable because it’s hard to understand why ionized alkaline water creates weight loss whereas purified, bottled, and tap water don’t. Yet, it’s true and here’s why.
Alkaline Water and Weight Loss: Antioxidants are the Key
The key difference between ionized alkaline water and purified, tap and bottled water is ionized water has antioxidants. With our modern society and technology we have put ourselves in a predicament where we’re not drinking water from natural sources anymore. Tap water is pumped out of aquifers and stored in tanks for several days before it is pumped to your home. Bottled water is removed from natural springs and streams and stored in cheap plastic bottles for months before you ever drink it.
The problem with all of this storage is the antioxidants in water have a short lifespan. Water’s antioxidants are created when ions from the sun or, in the case of an EOS water ionizer, a water electrolysis chamber, combine with the hydrogen to form a hydroxyl ion. Alkaline ionized water is microclustered, meaning the water molecules are about three times smaller than tap, purified, or bottled water, so these hydroxyl ions are easily absorbed into our cells where they scavenge for free radicals and neutralize them, turning them into oxygen, which our body absorbs as energy.
Hydroxyl ions are the key to “alkaline water and weight loss” because they detoxify your body and make your body healthier at a cellular level, elminating your body’s need to store toxins in fat cells.
Purified, tap, and bottled water don’t have these antioxidants. It only takes 2 to 3 days for all of the hydroxyl ions to fizzle out of water just like carbonation fizzles out of the soda. Combine that with the free radicals that attack water when it’s removed from its energy source and exposed to air and water becomes stagnant very quickly. Even if water was bottled from a pristine source full of antioxidants, it will be stagnant by the time you drink it meaning it won’t help you lose weight!
Alkaline Water and Weight Loss: How Alkaline Ionized Water Helps you Lose Weight
Fat cells are only created by your body when it is overwhelmed by toxins and pollutants and excess fat and calories in your diet. If your body were to allow all of these toxins and fats to interrupt the delicate balance between your heart, lungs, liver, and other vital organs, you could die. So, your body’s solution is to store the unwanted pollutants in fat cells as far away from your vital organs as possible.
Ionized alkaline water detoxifies your body so your body no longer needs to create all of that extra storage. That’s why when you drink alkaline ionized water, you lose weight quickly.
A glass of ionized alkaline water has more antioxidants than a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice! As soon as you start drinking it, your body will detoxify. You’ll sleep better, feel better, have more energy, and lose weight!
Most of us don’t live next to natural springs and glacial streams to get ionized water direct from nature. Luckily, water ionizers were created that replicate the sun’s process of infusing water with ions to create hydroxyl ions. EOS Water ionizers also purify your tap water to 99.99% purity using a 16 stage dual water filtration system, so all of the pesticides, chlorine, fluoride, left over pharmaceutical drugs, nitrites and nitrates and ever other contaminant are purified from your tap water, leaving it clean and ready to be ionized.
So, when it comes to alkaline water and weight loss, don’t be skeptical! There are 35 years worth of published peer-reviewed articles that you can read about the benefits of electrolyzed (ionized) water at www.pubmed.gov. Water ionizer are one of the most researched medical products ever created and with an EOS water ionizer, you can get this premium health-enhancing water for only about three cents a liter!
To your health!
