What is it about alkaline water that makes it so healthful?
The body is perfectly capable of maintaining its own pH balance provided it receives the proper nutrients. When the body is not getting enough alkaline minerals from food and water, it must rob calcium from its own bones to neutralize acidity. This is not ideal and once the body's readily available alkaline mineral supplies are depleted, it becomes overly acidic.
The difference between naturally and artificially alkaline water
It is important to note that water can be either naturally alkaline or artificially alkaline. Why? Naturally alkaline water contains the alkaline minerals the body needs to combat acidity. Artificially alkaline water, such as water from a typical alkaline water ionizer machine, has a pH that is artificially increased and does not have any more alkaline minerals than the original water used to supply the machine. Artificially alkaline water has also been proven to cause side effects, and from a chemical perspective, such a water cannot be found anywhere in nature.
It makes perfect sense. What benefits could artificial alkalinity provide when it passes through the stomach which has a constant acidic pH? Only the alkaline minerals found in naturally alkaline water can create alkalinity past the stomach. Artificially alkaline water is completely neutralized in the stomach and offers the body no additional alkaline minerals to combat acidity. Only naturally alkaline water has the minerals the body needs to combat acidity and build its acid buffering reserves.
When drinking artificially alkaline water continuously, side effects can develop. To read more about the two types of alkaline water and the side effects of consuming artificially alkaline water, please read the article Alkaline Water Exposed - What They Don't Tell You
Alkaline water combats acidosis
It is important to know the symptoms of acidosis because these are what alkaline water neutralizes.
SYMPTOMS OF ACIDOSIS
- Sleepiness / Fatigue
- Shortness of breath
- Coughing / Mucus
- Heart Arrhythmia
- Increased heart rate
- Increased likelihood of chronic disease
ALKALINE WATER BENEFITS
- Fewer occurrences of headaches
- Increased energy
- Clear thinking
- Easy respiration
- Less throat irritation / Less mucus
- Healthy heart function (worsened by artificially alkaline water!)
- Fewer occurrences of 'feeling sick'
- More stable and regular bowel movements
- Decreased likelihood of chronic disease
Additional alkaline water benefits
Naturally alkaline water helps to neutralize acids and remove toxins from the body. Alkaline water also acts as a conductor of electrochemical activity from cell to cell. Other alkaline water benefits include:
- Increased intracellular hydration
- Decreased likelihood of acidosis
- Constant replenishment of essential minerals for pH balancing
- Increased ability of cells to expel wastes
Because of its ability to hydrate the body and flush out toxins, AquaLiv Water (a naturally alkaline water available from the AquaLiv Water System) helps the body first by eliminating the toxins that can cause acidity. Then, it provides the body with alkaline minerals to help buffer acidity and build acid buffering reserves.
Alkaline water should be the first thing you try
There are many health benefits associated with drinking alkaline water. So many, in fact, that if you are experiencing any health issues, alkaline water should be the first thing on your list to try. Without drinking an adequate amount of alkaline water daily, as nature intended, anything else you are doing to improve your health may be limited in its success.
Which water systems create naturally alkaline water?
In nature, water flows in streams and rivers and absorbs alkaline minerals from rock. Water systems that create naturally alkaline water work the same way. The water flows around a gravel bed to naturally absorb alkaline minerals. What's the best way to determine if an alkaline water system creates alkalinity naturally or artificially? Naturally alkaline water systems are typically much larger than the artificial variety and they do not use electricity.
When you begin comparing water systems, you will find that the AquaLiv Water System truly creates the most healthful water available today. It mimics natural processes to create a structured, naturally alkaline water direct from your tap. No electricity. No shortcuts. Just naturally perfect water that heals.
