Determining the Alkalinity of Water
Most people don’t know that the alkalinity of water can determine whether your drinking water is healthy or not. Water exists on a pH scale that ranges from 0 to 14. 0 is extremely acidic and dangerous to your health. Anything above 7 is considered alkaline. Anything below seven is acidic water. You shouldn’t drink acidic water but most tap water and bottled water is, in fact, acidic.
You can determine the alkalinity of water by using a simple bottle of pH reagent drops. These drops come with every EOS water ionizer that you purchase. Reagent drops are simply red cabbage juice, which has the miraculous ability to change color that shows the alkalinity or acidity of the substance that it comes in contact with. If you add a few drops of pH reagent drops to alkaline water it will turn blue or purple. If you add a few drops to acidic water, it will turn yellow or red.
Bottled and Tap Water Are Mostly Acidic
Most bottled water is purified through a process called distillation or reverse osmosis. This removes the minerals from the water and leave the water in an acidic state. If you measure Dasani or Aquafina with pH reagent drops it will be yellow in color which means it is a moderate acid that you shouldn’t drink. Most of the tap water in the US measures at neutral or slightly below neutral have a 6.5 acidic pH.
If you drink an acidic water, it will oxidize your body. The stronger the acid, the stronger the oxidation. Oxidation in your cells means cellular damage. Another way of saying cellular damage is oxidative stress caused by the oxidation. Your body likes to eat and drink food and beverages that are alkaline and full of antioxidants. If something is acidic it can’t have any antioxidants in it. That means that there isn’t any bottled or tap water that you can drink that has antioxidants in it, so they won’t cleanse your body.
The only way to get antioxidants is to eat alkaline foods or drink alkaline beverages including alkaline ionized water from EOS Water Ionizers. An EOS water ionizer replicates the same natural process the sun uses to make water alkaline and to create antioxidants. Ions from the Sun combine with hydrogen in the water to form what’s called and hydroxyl ion. This is the all-important antioxidant that you will find in water. But you won’t find it in any water that comes from a bottle or from your tap.
Creating Antioxidants in Your Drinking Water
You can replicate the sun’s natural process by getting a water ionizer. A water ionizer uses platinum titanium plates to infuse your water with ions and to create millions and millions of hydroxyl ions to detoxify your body. The alkalinity of water from an EOS water ionizer is controllable by you by pressing the alkaline buttons. The lowest alkaline water level is a mild alkaline water at an 8.5 pH, which is good if you’re just starting to drink ionized water. The best drinking water level is the number 3 alkaline level, which is a 9.5 pH, and has the same amount of antioxidants that you would find if you were to measure the water coming from the Fountain of Youth in Lourdes, France.
You can also create a super alkaline ionized water using an EOS water ionizer. This water is strong enough to neutralize oil based pesticides from your produce or neutralize any other oil based stains. The byproduct of creating super alkaline ionized water is super acidic ionized water, which can be used to sterilize bacteria and kill viruses in your home. Just put this super strong acid water in a spray bottle and you can spray it around your kitchen or bathroom and keep them sterile.
In conclusion, the alkalinity of water is very important. A strong acid water is great for cleaning but you would never want to drink acid water. The best drinking water is alkaline and full of antioxidants and unless you live next to a longevity spring in China or the Fountain of Youth, you can only get alkaline ionized water by purchasing an EOS water ionizer from Water for Life USA!
To your health!
