If you are like most Americans, you probably don’t get enough minerals in your diet for good health. The Centers for Disease Control estimates that 4 out of 5 Americans are deficient in either calcium, magnesium or both. Mineral deficiency is a factor in many health problems such as obesity, high blood pressure, and bone loss. A water ionizer can help you improve your intake of essential minerals. As a matter of fact, the body absorbs calcium and magnesium easier and faster from water than it does from food or supplements. If you are mineral deficient, a water ionizer could benefit your health by providing easy to absorb calcium and magnesium in every glass of water you drink
Symptoms of Mineral Deficiency
Mineral deficiency is a factor in so many health problems, that it is impossible to list them all here. Every cell in the body needs calcium and magnesium to function correctly. The body also uses calcium to maintain its pH balance when the pH of the blood gets too low. If the body can’t get the minerals it needs from your diet, it steals them from your bones.
Mineral deficiency is a factor in metabolic syndrome, the symptoms of which include:
- High Blood Pressure
- Kidney Stones
- High Blood Sugar
- High Cholesterol Levels
If you have 3 out of 5 of the above symptoms, it is very likely that you have metabolic syndrome (but only your doctor knows for sure!). If you are concerned about metabolic syndrome, you should speak to your doctor. There are simple tests your doctor can perform that can determine to detect metabolic syndrome.
Mineral deficiency is a self-inflicted wound for many people. Americans spend over $16 billion dollars a year on bottled water – and most of that water lacks minerals. In fact, you are better off in most cases drinking tap water! But many people won’t drink their tap water, because it tastes bad. Ironically, it’s the minerals in tap water – that you need for good health – that make it taste bad. Others are concerned about toxins like chlorine
Why alkaline water from a water ionizer can help
A water ionizer fixes both problems with tap water, and leaves the healthy calcium and magnesium in. Alkaline water from a water ionizer is sweeter tasting and more refreshing than regular water. Studies suggest that water with an alkaline pH is better for you. One such study compared alkaline water to acidic water; both had equal amounts of calcium in them. The study showed that the body absorbed more calcium from the alkaline water than it did from the acidic water.
Alkaline water has also been shown in some studies to raise the body’s pH balance, and improve hydration status. All of these improvements, better mineral nutrition, improved pH balance, and better hydration can work together to provide improved health.
