Reduce Oxidative Stress with Water
Many people are searching for ways to reduce oxidative stress in repair cellular damage. That’s because there is a growing awareness that oxidative stress and cellular damage are the main causes of disease in our bodies. The number one way to treat a disease that you may have and to prevent future diseases is to reduce oxidative stress levels and the only way to do that is through antioxidants.
What is Oxidative Stress?
Oxidative stress is a measurement of the damage done by free radicals that bounce around our cells. As these free radicals hit things in our cells, they do damage to them. Too many free radicals bouncing around our cells can cause a lot of damage. Over time, this accumulated damage can weaken our cells so much that they make our bodies susceptible to diseases.
A free radical is an unstable oxygen molecule. These unstable oxygen molecules are created by food digestion, exposure to environmental pollutants, emotional stress, physical activity, and impurities in our diet like chemicals. To neutralize a free radical and reduce oxidative stress in our cells, you need to ingest a food or a beverage with an extra ion to give. Foods and beverages that have an extra ion to give are called an antioxidant. Foods that are high in antioxidants include blueberries, tomatoes, raspberries, blackberries, melons, oranges, grape fruits, lemons, and a whole host of other fruits and vegetables. Beverages that are high in antioxidants are beverages that are made with pure extracts of these fruits and vegetables or water that has been exposed to an energy source such as the sun.
Natural water, like water that you can find in a natural spring or a glacial stream, is energized by the sun and these extra ions combined with the hydrogen in the water to form a hydroxyl ion. A hydroxyl ion is the antioxidant in water. You are supposed to drink least 8 ounces of water every single hour in order to stay hydrated. But the problem that most Americans have is that the water they are drinking is not exposed to any energy source and therefore does not contain any antioxidants.
You Can’t Reduce Oxidative Stress with Bottled or Tap Water
There isn’t any tap water or water that has been bottled that contains any antioxidants in it. That’s because ions in water do not last for very long. After about two to three days the ions will fizzle out of the water at about the same rate that carbonation fizzles out of a soda. Any water that is coming from our tap that is municipal treated is water that has been sitting around in tanks for weeks at a time before it’s ever pumped out to our homes. Meanwhile, bottled water sits in trucks and on store shelves for weeks before we ever get a chance to drink it.
The only way to get antioxidants in our water is to drink directly from a glacial stream or a longevity spring or to get a water ionizer for your home, which replicates the sun’s natural process of ionizing the water. EOS water ionizers are so effective at creating hydroxyl ions that there are more antioxidants in a glass of alkaline ionized water than there are in a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice or blueberry juice.
So, the best way to reduce oxidative stress levels in your body and to repair cellular damage is to eat a diet that is full of alkaline antioxidant foods like fruits and vegetables and to also drink a water that is ionized from the sun or from a water ionizer. It may be expensive to move next to a glacial stream or longevity spring, but it only costs about $0.02 a liter to ionize water in your home with an EOS water ionizer.
To your health!
