Metabolic Syndrome is a “constellation of physiological screwups” that happens when a person’s body can’t
regulate its pH balance. When you have metabolic syndrome, your vital organs are slowly being destroyed by acidity, and if it’s left unchecked, metabolic syndrome will cost you your life. But research performed at the University of Pittsburgh medical center gives new hope: Ionized Alkaline water was shown to both increase antioxidant levels, and decrease harmful cholesterol levels. Other studies have shown that ionized alkaline water can help you raise your pH balance, which could help you beat metabolic syndrome.
The Symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome
The most visible symptom of metabolic syndrome is obesity. If you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher, then you may have metabolic syndrome. Your BMI is calculated by dividing your weight in kilograms by your height squared in meters. Here’s how it’s done:
- Multiply your weight in pounds by 0.45 to convert it to kilograms
- Multiply your height in inches by 0.025 to convert it to meters
- Square the answer you got for your height
- Divide your the answer you got for your weight by the answer you got for your your height
Other symptoms need to be checked for by a doctor. Those symptoms are
- High blood pressure
- Kidney stones
- High blood sugar
- High cholesterol levels
If you have a BMI of over 30 and any of the above symptoms, talk to your doctor about metabolic syndrome.
Lower cholesterol levels – in just 8 weeks!
The study demonstrated that alkaline ionized water improved the antioxidant status, and lowered cholesterol levels of people who suffered from Metabolic Syndrome. In just 8 weeks, the people participating in the study saw a 39% improvement in their antioxidant levels, a 43% decrease in levels of harmful free radicals, and a 13% decrease in harmful cholesterol levels. Researchers concluded in the study that ionized alkaline water has tremendous potential for both treating and preventing metabolic syndrome.
12 Pounds in Two Months: Study
A second study that examined the effects of ionized alkaline water on middle aged people with metabolic syndrome reported similar results: Improved antioxidant status, and lower cholesterol levels. The study, “The effect of daily consumption of 2 liters of electrolyzed water for 2 months on body composition and several physiological parameters in four obese subjects” also monitored the test subjects weight and found that the people in the study lost an average of 12 pounds in two months. Keep in mind that the people in the study changed nothing else: They still ate the same foods, got the same amount of exercise, and the pounds just came off. Researchers also noticed a detox effect. Drinking alkaline water caused the people in the test to excrete 10 different heavy metals.
What you need to know about ionized alkaline water and metabolic syndrome
The people in both studies discussed in this article drank between one and a half to two liters of ionized alkaline water per day. To get the same benefit that was observed in the studies, the alkaline ionized water you drink must have antioxidant potential. The bottled alkaline water you see in stores does not have antioxidant potential. The only way to get ionized alkaline water with high antioxidant potential is to make it yourself, with a water ionizer.
