What is the Healthiest Drinking Water?
The American Consumer is bombarded by marketing telling them which water they should drink. But which water is truly the healthiest drinking water? Is it the bottled water from companies like the Dasani or Aquafina? Is it well water? Is it spring water from a natural spring? Is it a filtered water hooked up to your tap? Or could it be an ionized water from a water ionizer? Let’s explore each of these.
Bottled Water Has Buzz, Not Substance
You might be feeling the most pressure to buy bottled water. There are many commercials that fight for your attention. You see bottled water when you go down the aisle at your supermarket. It’s at baseball games and even in vending machines at your kid’s school. But is bottled water the healthiest to drink? In most cases, it’s not.
Part of the marketing Buzz around bottled water is that they claim it is pure water. They claim that by using super filtration methods such as reverse osmosis or distillation that the water they end up bottling is the healthiest for you to drink. But when you filter out everything from water, you leave it empty. All of the trace minerals, oxygen, and antioxidants are stripped Away from the water using these methods.
When you test a bottled water that is purified through reverse osmosis or distillation, the pH of the water is about a 5.5 pH, which is almost ten thousand times more acidic than your own blood. When you drink water that is this acidic, it puts a strain on your body. It taxes your immune system, it creates oxidative stress in your cells, which eventually leads to cellular deterioration – the precursor for most adult onset diseases.
Also, if your body cannot handle the acid intake on any given day, it puts the excess acid and toxins into storage. That means drinking a bottle of water might actually make you fat. If your body needs to create storage to put the acid and the toxins into, this will add more fat cells to your body and most people don’t like that.
Reverse Osmosis is Not the Solution
You will find a very similar pH drinking water when you hook up a reverse osmosis water filter or a distiller to your home. Places like the Home Depot and other big box stores usually offer good deals on these systems. For less than $500, you can get one in your home. But they create a pure water that has been stripped of everything in water that is good for you.
If you were to get a water filter for your home, it should be carbon-based so that the trace minerals in your water can get through. Trace minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, potassium, and kalium, are essential to the functioning of your nervous system and your immune system. Your tap water is a great source for these minerals.
It doesn’t make much sense to filter these minerals out of your tap water.
A carbon-based home water filtration system is best. But there is one more step that the American Consumer should consider. Just filtering water is not enough. It is not enough to simply remove all of the contaminants from the water because water has one more property that is very important. Did you know that water can have antioxidants in it? It is true. When water is exposed to an energy source such as the sun or kinetic energy from moving along a stream or a river bed, water is given ions. These ions combine with the hydrogen in the water to form what is called and hydroxyl ion.
A hydroxyl ion has an extra ion that it can lend to your body. This extra ion is given to unstable oxygen molecules inside your cells called free radicals. Free radicals are unstable oxygen molecules that bounce around and cause damage to your cells. When an unstable oxygen molecule is given that extra ion, it stabilizes and becomes regular oxygen that your body can then absorb and use for energy.
Antioxidants are very important to your body. Having water that is full of antioxidants is even better than drinking water that doesn’t have any antioxidants at all. There aren’t any bottled water or tap water in the United States that have antioxidants in them. This is because those waters sit around in bottles or in tanks for more than 3 days. If water sits for more than 3 days, all of the antioxidants will fizzle out just like carbonation Fizzles out of a soda. The water becomes flat just like a flat soda. You might also want to call it stagnant water or dead water.
Most animals know not to drink water that has been sitting around too long. They always opt for the water that is moving because instinctually they know that it is healthier. So when it comes to your home, filtering out the contaminants in the water using a multi-stage carbon filtration system is a good idea and it is an even better idea to use water electrolysis provided by a water ionizer to restore the antioxidants.
Water Ionization Creates Antioxidants
EOS water ionizers have been on the market for over 15 years and utilize the top rated plates in the world for creating water electrolysis. They also intelligently ajust the ionization to the mineral content of your source water so that you are getting the best pH water for delivering antioxidants to your cells and making your body healthier.
So, which is the healthiest drinking water should you drink? It should be water that has been filtered so that all of the nasty contaminants are removed. But it also should be water that has antioxidants in it so that your body can detoxify and cleanse itself.
To your health!
