Did you know? A glass of water could prevent a heart attack! Drinking a glass of water an hour before bedtime helps the body remain hydrated while you sleep. When the body becomes dehydrated, blood viscosity increases, which makes the heart work harder. Drinking a glass of water an hour before bed is also associated with reduced risk of stroke as well.
Hydration and your Heart
When you lose just 1% of your body weight in water, you are dehydrated. Dehydration makes the heart work harder, and reduces the body’s ability to regulate its temperature. Drinking water throughout the day is essential for maintaining blood viscosity.

Drinking Water, Mineral Deficiency and High Blood Pressure
Health experts from the World Health Organization recommend that you get 10 – 20% of your recommended daily allowance for minerals from drinking water. Mineral deficiency has been described as a health epidemic by some health experts. Studies show that even if you get enough calcium in your diet, your body may not be able to absorb it.
The best water to drink for mineral nutrition is alkaline mineral water. Alkaline water hydrates 30% better than plain water, and has a higher concentration of beneficial minerals like calcium in it. The minerals in water are what determine its pH. Alkaline water from protected mountain springs is highly prized for its health benefits. Those benefits come from the both mineral nutrients in the water, and the water’s alkaline pH balance.

Where to get Alkaline Water
Bottled water is the worst way to get alkaline water. Plastic bottles leech harmful BPA, and make water taste like plastic! Bottled water is terrible for the environment as well. Bottled water is also the most expensive form of water on Earth.
A home water ionizer is the best way to get alkaline water. The machines filter water, and then use a process called electrodialysis to separate water into alkaline mineral and acidic mineral fractions. The great thing about an alkaline water machine is that it never runs out. You get enough water for cooking, drinking, and have plenty for your family.
Water from a home ionizer is cleaner than most spring water. Sadly, this is because many of the Earth’s natural springs have become contaminated by pollution. A water ionizer filters out the toxins found in tap water, ensuring every glass of water you drink is clean. Alkaline water from a water ionizer tastes better than plain water too.
You can finance a water ionizer for less than you’re probably paying for bottled water! Call us today at (888) 688-8889 to find out how.
