Ionized Water and Diabetes: Why Antioxidants Matter
Water and diabetes have a very close relationship. A recent study concluded that those adults who drank more than four eight ounces glass of water a day had a 21% less chance of developing high blood sugar, which leads to diabetes. This is very important news because even if you’re not diabetic, you may be prediabetic and not even know it!
According to the CDC, a whopping 30 million adults in the US have diabetes. But did you know that about 85 million Americans have prediabetes, a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal but not quite enough to be diagnoses as diabetic?
Being prediabetic increases the risk of developing heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. All together that means about one in every three US adults has serious levels of high blood sugar and should seriously be considering the relationship between “water and diabetes.”
We believe that it’s a very good idea for all of us to drink at least four eight ounce glasses of water each day. But drinking ionized water will help us even more.
Water and Diabetes: Benefits of Ionized Water for Diabetic Patients and Pre-Diabetic People
In a German study, Type 2 diabetic patients drank ionized alkaline water for 4 to 6 weeks noticed a drop in their blood sugar by an average of 25.7%. Type 1 diabetic patients noticed a drop of 33.3% over the same time period.
The German study had a control group drinking non-ionized water and they didn’t see anywhere near the same results!
Here are some other benefits that were realized from people drinking ionized water instead of regular tap water:
* Type 2 diabetic patients saw their HbA1c levels were lowered from 9.2% to 7.2%, reducing the risk of blindness by 45%.
* Type 1 diabetic patients saw their HbA1c levels drop from 7.9% to 6.8%, also lowering blindness risk by 45%.
* Type 2 diabetic patients reduced their medication intake by 47%. Type 1 saw a 37% reduction.
* In both type 1 and type 2 diabetic patients, cholesterol, triglyzeride, and LDL levels were reduced while HDL levels increased.
Ionized Water and Diabetes
So, what makes ionized water so much better for treating high blood sugar and diabetes?
The key difference between ionized water and regular water is that ionized water has been electrolyzed by an energy source like the sun or a water electrolysis chamber in a water ionizer, and this water electrolysis has created ions in the water the combine with the hydrogen to form hydroxyl ions.
Hydroxyl ions are water’s natural antioxidants. Ionized water is a direct antioxidant to your body whereas regular tap or bottled water does not contain any antioxidants.
The antioxidants in ionized water reduce free radical damage in our cells, also known as oxidative stress, and as the oxidative stress levels lower, our cells get healthier, and our blood sugar levels improve along with all the other benefits.
It’s not just about ionized water and diabetes. These hyroxyl ions in ionized water made by a water ionizer don’t just benefit diabetes, they improve the overall function of our bodies. Because the oxidative stress levels in our cells are reduced by ionized water, our bodies become less toxic and acidic, and most people notice these other improvements:
* Better Sleep
* More Energy
* Better Mood
* Absorb more Nutrients from Food
* Feel Better
* Less Consumption of Coffee and other Stimulants
* Regular Bowel Movements
* Much More!
The other major benefit to an EOS water ionizer is that it filters your tap water to 99.99% purity. This is a higher purification level than what’s required for tap water. That means virtually all of the peticides, fluoride, chloramine, left over pharmaceutical drugs, heavy metals, nitrates and nitrites, chlorine, and everything else disgusting and unhealthy in our water is removed, leaving just pure water ready to be ionized.
What’s more, this 99.99% pure water full of antioxidants will only cost you about 3 cents a liter over the lifespan of your water.
In conclusion, everyone should be drinking at least four eight ounce glasses of water every day. But if you drink ionized alkaline water from a water ionizer like the EOS DNA Water Ionizer, you’ll also help your cells get healthy and improve your health at a cellular level.
To your health!
