Alkaline water helps fight off damage to your system by neutralising the excess acids and removing the toxins from your body. Tap water has a pH level of seven, and is deemed ‘neutral’. However, alkaline water provides a pH range of seven point two, to nine, which is a lot better for the body.
pH describes the level of acidity in the water. If you have too much acid in your body, you will have less oxygen available and therefore not be at optimum health. However, when you are getting enough minerals from alkaline and you’re other meals and drinks contain alkaline, you can function at your best. Alkaline helps provide the oxygen to your body, which is important as it helps you maintain a better level of health, both physically and mentally.
If your body has too much acid in it, then it will be weakening your immune system having to fight off the acid, and this means your immune system can miss the signs of an illness beginning. However, alkaline water helps take the water out of your system and flush out the toxic wastes, making you feel fresher and more ready.
Alkaline water is usually ionised, which is rich in antioxidants and has no bacteria in it, as well as anything else you find in tap water like chlorine or fluorine. Aside from that, alkaline winter also introduces extremely beneficial minerals into your system, which is only going to help in the long-term. The higher the antioxidant level in your alkaline water, the better.
Alkaline water provides a host of other benefits to your system, too. Not only does it strengthen your immune system and help you feel better, but it also helps you fight off the aging process! As we get older, we are unable to neutralise the acids so effectively naturally, but the addition of alkaline water can help stave off the aging process by helping your body combat the neutralised acids, which are an important part of the aging process.
Alkaline water is good for you in pretty much every way, but consult your physician before you start to drink it regularly – you may have to make some changes elsewhere, too, and your doctor or physician can point you in the right direction.
