How Much Water Should I Drink?
If you’ve ever asked yourself, “how much water should I drink?” the best equation is to take your body weight and divide it by half and then be prepared to drink that amount of water in ounces each day. Research shows that you should be drinking at least 8 ounces of water each hour. But not all water is created equal.
Did you know that some drinking water, like from bottles and our tap, is acidic? Some drinking water can be so acidic that it can rust metal! If water can rust metal, imagine what it can do to your body. But not all water is oxidizing and can rust. Some water has the opposite effect and can act as an antioxidant in your body, reducing cellular damage, and helping your body to heal. But in order for water to have antioxidants, it has to have hydroxyl ions.
Drinking Hydroxyl Ions
An hydroxyl ion is a molecule of hydrogen combined with an ion. All water has hydrogen but not all water has ions in it. You can only get ions from the Sun, from kinetic energy like the movement of water down a stream bed, or from far infrared radiation that is emitted from certain minerals, but FIR has a very minor effect.
When water is exposed to an energy source, and it’s full of ions, its chemical structure also changes to an alkaline chemical structure, which is much smaller. This is ofter called “reduced” or “microclustered” water. Alkaline water is anything that is above 7 on the pH scale. The ideal water to drink is a 9.5 pH and full of hydroxyl ions. But unless you live next to a glacial stream, or a spring that has ions from the Sun, the water you are drinking is most likely neutral or slightly acidic and doesn’t have any antioxidants in it at all!
You Won’t Find Antioxidant Water in Bottles or Your Tap
There isn’t a single bottled water that you can buy that has antioxidants in it. Also there isn’t any tap water in the USA has antioxidants in it. So, the only way you can get antioxidant water in your body is if you live next to a glacial stream or spring or you get a water ionizer for your home.
A water ionizer replicates the sun’s natural process to create hydroxyl ions. Through the use of platinum and titanium plates, ions are infused into the water, which combine with the hydrogen to form the antioxidants. Furthermore, a water ionizer uses a sophisticated filtration system to clean up all the nasty contaminants in your tap water. An EOS water ionizer uses a 16 stage water filtration system and will remove over a 99.99% of the contaminants in your water including bacteria, chlorine, fluoride, chloramine, nitrates and nitrites, sediment, left over pharmaceutical drugs, and everything else that’s a health risk in our drinking water.
So, if you’re asking yourself, “how much water should I drink?” remember to drink at least 8 ounces every hour. But if you are drinking an acidic water, you are damaging your body even though you are hydrating it. Drinking alkaline ionized water from an EOS water ionizer is the best solution for good health.
To your health!
