People have been drinking alkaline water for centuries from protected springs like Nordeneau in Germany, and Carlsbad Mineral Springs in the USA. These legendary alkaline waters have helped people overcome many health challenges. Alkaline water, whether it’s from a mountain spring or a water ionizer provides three important benefits to the body that can contribute to improved health:
- Minerals – 4 in 5 Americans are mineral deficient, alkaline water is the best source of minerals
- pH Balance – Alkaline water can raise body pH (measured through urine testing)
- Hydration – Alkaline has been shown to improve hydration status
Your body absorbs minerals from water 30% easier and faster than it does from food or supplements. Alkaline water supplies calcium and magnesium which has been shown to be good for your heart. One of the largest studies on the benefits of minerals from alkaline water states: “The more alkaline the water, the greater the protective effect on human arteries”. Virtually every process in your body needs calcium and magnesium, deficiencies in these minerals contribute to many health problems.
A low pH balance in the body (measured as urine pH) is linked to a serious health problem called metabolic syndrome. The symptoms of metabolic syndrome are: Obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, bone loss and kidney stones. Alkaline water can raise the pH of urine, which can help:
- Maintain healthy bones – Raising urine pH can slow calcium loss
- Improve kidney health – Increasing urine pH reduces stress on the kidneys
- Prevent urinary infections – Alkalizing the urine helps prevent infections
- Fight metabolic syndrome – Higher urine pH is associated with less risk of developing metabolic syndrome
Proper hydration is essential for good health. Research has shown that alkaline water can hydrate better than plain water. A glass of water could even save your life! Dehydration can contribute to high blood pressure by making the blood thicker, which can lead to a heart attack or stroke.
Alkaline water makes a health easier
Alkaline ionized water may be the best choice for better health, hydration, and pH balance. Simply because it is such an easy choice. Alkaline ionized water tastes sweeter and more refreshing than regular water. That makes it easy for you to choose water over other beverages.
Many things you do for health are challenging, such as dragging yourself to the gym for a workout. Alkaline water is the easiest way to improve your health simply because it’s such a pleasure to drink it!
