Ionized Alkaline Water and Diabetes
Did you know that drinking alkaline ionized water has been proven to be an effective treatment for diabetes? It has to do with the way that the antioxidants in alkaline water, as part of an alkaline diet, regulate the sugar in your body. That means that with an EOS water ionizer, you can fight diabetes with alkaline water right in our own kitchen!
Dr. Theodore Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die, states that the pancreas is highly dependent on you eating eating an alkaline diet. When the pancreas has an alkaline diet, it is able to produce alkaline digestive enzymes and sodium bicarbonate, which is sent to your blood. Both the alkaline digestive enzymes and the sodium bicarbonate reduce the acidity in your body.
Your pancreas also regulates your blood sugar balance and helps give your body energy. Since diabetes is a disease where your body doesn’t produce enough insulin to keep your blood sugar in check, it is vital to keep your pancreas healthy. You can keep it happy with an alkaline diet featuring alkaline ionized water.
Diabetes Rooted in Oxidative Stress
Most people don’t know that diabetes is largely caused by cellular deterioration. That’s why you can fight diabetes with alkaline water not just because it’s alkaline, but because it’s full of antioxidants.
Cells deteriorate when they are attacked from the inside by high levels of free radicals. The concentration of free radicals is measured as oxidative stress. When there are high levels of oxidative stress in your cells, your cells are damaged.
Fight Diabetes with Alkaline Water
Alkaline ionized water fight diabetes in two ways:
- It gives your pancreas the alkalinity that it wants.
- It lowers oxidative stress levels in your cells because of its high concentration of antioxidants.
An antioxidant is any beverage or food that has an extra ion to give when you eat or drink it. An ion is essentially energy and when the extra ion is given to an unstable oxygen molecule inside your cells, also known as a free radical, that unstable oxygen molecule is neutralized by that ion. Once neutralized, the free radical is converted to oxygen, which your cell can then absorb and use for energy.
If the free radical stays unstable, it will continue to bounce around your cell and damage it. Years and years of this excessive free radical damage deteriorates your cell and that’s what leads to diseases.
Diabetes isn’t the only condition that can develop from high levels of oxidative stress. Did you know that virtually every illness and disease that we face as humans, especially when we get older, is rooted in high levels of oxidative stress? Cancer, arthritis, and high blood pressure are all rooted in high levels of oxidative stress. Even the graying of our hair is caused by this oxidation.
Drinking alkaline ionized water and also eating an alkaline diet high in antioxidants is the best way to prevent and treat diseases like diabetes. So, fight diabetes with alkaline water by hooking up an EOS water ionizer right in your own kitchen!
To your health!
