Why You Need Antioxidant Water
We have 10 to 13 gallons of water in our bodies, according to Dr. Robert Young, author of the pH Miracle for Weight Loss. That means approximately 70 percent of the human body is made up of water. 75 percent by volume of your heart and muscles, 86 percent of our lungs, 83 percent of your brain and kidneys, and 95 percent of your eyes is made from water. It’s not so much ‘we are what we eat’ but ‘we are what we drink‘.
Knowing this, we should all be fuelling our bodies and tissues with the very best type of water possible: antioxidant water. Like its name suggests, this type of water is not only full of antioxidants that heal our bodies, it is also very alkaline, which neutralizes acid in the body.
However, the reality is that Americans are all drinking something very different, and it’s having a catastrophic effect on our health…
Unfortunately Acid Water is on the American Diet, Not Antioxidant Water
When the average American goes food shopping, we fill our bags with lots of things, and most of it is not great for us. We all know the chief offenders by now – sugary and fatty foods that can lead to health problems and obesity.
But there are other things we should start paying attention to that lead to the same health problems: acidic foods. Just as antioxidant water is alkaline, stuff like Coke and soda is extremely acidic. So is beer and wine. And it is an unfortunate reality that these are the types of liquids that most of us are filling our bodies with.
The Trouble With Acidic Drinks
The human body is not built to cope with the sheer amount of acids we are flooding it with. Coke and soda are the biggest offenders by acidity level, but it’s not just drinks. Foods like red meat, butter, oil, eggs, dairy products, and many other staples of the American diet are also highly acidic. And when we are consuming all of these types of foods on a daily basis, our system is overloaded , causing acidic waste to be stored in the fatty deposits of our body instead of being processed by our livers and kidneys.
Remarkably, so toxic are these foods to our well-being that the human body is making the judgement call to preserve our vital organs instead of processing these acidic foods, so it is stockpiled inside of us and never gets processed. If we leave this process to continue, the health implications can be destructive: heart disease, gout, osteoporosis, and an increased risk from cancer, as well as poor metabolism, digestion and energy levels.
Antioxidant Water Can Save Your Health
If you suffer from an acidic diet, alkaline antioxidant water is the best drink for your body. Consumed regularly (from a water ionizer machine, not in bottled form as that can be acidic), alkaline antioxidant water is a wonder liquid that can detoxify your body from acid build-up. It helps reduce the damage from harmful free radicals that get inside us from pollution in the environment, having the effect to reduce the overall oxidative stress on our body cells. So that nasty effect that acidic foods has on our insides is effectively neutralized with this healing water and the risk from disease, illness and health complications is brought right down.
Antioxidant water from an ionizer also increases your blood’s oxygen level. This provides your organs and muscle tissues with oxygen and improves endurance. Your immune system will also benefit, allowing you to recover from sickness faster. This is the reason why ionized alkaline water is used in hospitals all over the world for post-surgery treatment, as it helps patients recover faster and heal better.
So the next time you feel like quenching your thirst, think about what you are putting inside of you does to your body. Knowing all the facts, we would be crazy not to switch to antioxidant water as our drink of choice because of its numerous health benefits.
