Alkaline Water: What is it? What are the benefits? How can you access it?
Each time you drink water, you may be consuming something that doesn't do as well as you might think. Many water sources have been contaminated by various factors such as city development, pollution, poor sanitation, among others. Data from the National Resources Defense Council indicate that ⅓ of Americans (nearly 77 million) were served water that violated the Safe Water Drinking Act.
These violations included exceeding health-based standards, failing to test water for contaminants properly, and failing to report contamination to state authorities or the public of hospitalizations are caused by contaminated water. (Find Study about USA water here)
But even being treated by competent bodies, it is not yet ideal for consumption, it needs to undergo additional treatments to be perfect. If it does not, it can facilitate the development of diseases that could be prevented with some interventions.
The good news is that today, it is effortless to have access to this superior quality water, which has all the ideal features to help you achieve healthy longevity. Discover today a way to change your life with water with alkalizing power.
The Best Waters in the World
According to studies by AAFP (American Academy of Family Physicians), the average life expectancy of the American is 78.6 years; in some states, this estimate may be even lower. (USA Life Expectancy) But did you know that there are places in the world where the average expectation is at least 15 to 20 percent higher? In specific regions of the planet, we have several individuals who even passed the hundred years in a much more significant proportion than the rest of the world.
Inhabitants of places such as Okinawa, Japan, the Himalayas Mountain, Sardinia in Italy, Loris in France, and Abkhazia in Georgia are examples of healthy longevity. In addition to living longer, these people have a much better quality of life.
"But what is the secret? What do they have in common?"
Firstly, the inhabitants of these places have a healthy routine, with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and fish, besides exercising and having low exposure to situations that may negatively affect their health.
Apart from all these standard features, there is a prime factor for the longevity of these people. They live in places that have access to 'special' water, ionized alkaline water. The water these people consume has a pH higher than eight, and this is one of the critical factors in maintaining their quality of life. After all, this type of water brings numerous health benefits, helps prevent diseases, also helps in their treatment, and keeps them hydrated with much more quality.
Although the inhabitants of these places are privileged, they are not the only ones who can access this perfect water. Today, there are residential purification systems that mimic the natural processes of filtration, which includes adding minerals and alkalizing our water and deliver water as perfect as those found in the most untouched corners of the planet.
It is an ever-growing worldwide trend to treat water personally, after all, water comes to our home pre-treated, but it needs more processes to reach perfection. An example of this is chlorine, an essential substance in the public treatment of water, but which needs to be removed before human consumption.
Ionized Alkaline Water - The Perfect Water for Health
As already mentioned, water is not enough to be treated, it needs to be perfect for consumption. Did you know that to achieve this perfection, water needs to meet some unique characteristics? These characteristics are indicated by several health professionals such as, for example, Dr. Don Colbert, Dr. Theodore Baroody, Dr. Howard Hay, Dr. Kim Young Kwi, Dr. Peggy Parker, the greatest water specialist in Brazil, Dr. Lair Ribeiro. Clicking here, you will get to know more content that corroborates the need to consume the ideal water and, to be considered perfect, it needs:
Substances can be classified into three categories: acidic, neutral and alkaline. This categorization is done through a pH measurement. It is a scale that goes from number 0 to 14, with the value 7 being considered neutral, everything below this value is considered acidic, as well as everything above it is considered alkaline. Water, in general, has a neutral pH, that is, 7. A soda, for example, is more acidic, having an average pH of 2.5. It doesn't seem like a big difference, but the pH scale is logarithmic, which means that it increases in the form of multiplication. See the table below:
IMAGEM TABELA PH
Alkaline substances are roughly the opposite of acidic substances. Their scale, too, is logarithmic, meaning each level above is ten times more alkaline than the previous one. Studies show how eating acidic foods is bad for your health, facilitates disease proliferation, and severely impairs various body functions. Consumption of acidic foods should be avoided as much as possible, always trying to consume foods that have a pH above seven.
When we are born, we are primarily alkaline, and as we get older, we become increasingly acidic. This transition is one of the prime factors for us to become more prone to advanced age, such as diabetes, hypertension, gastric problems, and even cancer, with advanced age. For this reason, more and more doctors are recommending and recommending alkaline diets.
Our blood is slightly alkaline, between 7.35 and 7.45, and your body will do everything to keep it at that level. Every time our body is acidifying, it looks for ways to alkalize itself. One of the main ways to achieve the alkaline effect is through magnesium and calcium, alkalizing minerals, and where your body typically find these items? In your bones. It removes these minerals to make compensation, and thus this facilitates problems such as osteoporosis, arthrosis, and others.
Diseases usually need an acidic medium to sustain and spread, so an acidifying diet is so harmful. The consumption of alkaline water helps to rebalance this disorder, making a kind of cleansing so that these illnesses cannot be installed in your body.
Knowing the pH of water is a must for perfect health, but how do we know what pH water level we consume? Most people imagine that they need sophisticated laboratory tests to see the pH level, but did you know that you can do the test in seconds right at home? For this, you only need a pH reagent, a liquid that reacts on contact with water by changing color, the closer the acid is to red water and the closer to the more alkaline dark blue. The neutral pH water is displayed in green.
Want to measure at your home? See illustration in the image below and ensure a reagent, in particular condition, never to be in doubt about the alkalinity of your water.
But, it is not enough just to be alkaline.
Water needs to be free of contaminants, whether organic or not. We cannot drink contaminated water. By the way, did you know that ⅓ of Americans (nearly 77 million) were served water that violated the Safe Water Drinking Act. These violations included exceeding health-based standards, failing to test water for contaminants properly, and failing to report contamination to state authorities or the public. Of hospitalizations are caused by contaminated water. (Find Study about USA water here)-
Rich in Minerals
Water needs to be pure, as we said, but that doesn't mean you have to take everything away from it. It is the opposite of this. You need to remove the impurities, but keep what is beneficial in it, especially the minerals. Minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium are essential for your health. Check out the vital minerals that should be in your water:
- Calcium: Calcium acts on the formation and strengthening of teeth and bones, regulate coagulation, and is a protagonist in neuromuscular functions.
- Potassium: Potassium is present in every muscle function of your body, not to mention that it helps the pancreas to fight diabetes.
- Magnesium: Magnesium is so vital that it is considered the mineral of life by experts; it participates in over 300 functions in the body such as energy transport, protein synthesis, maintenance of cell function, hormonal activity, and many other purposes. The best way to absorb magnesium is through water, so magnesium water is so critical to maintaining health.
Now that you know their importance tell me, do you think you can be healthy without consuming these essential properties?... Of course not.
It may come as a surprise to many, but depending on the type consumed, water can be more or less moisturizing. Water is made up of molecules of H (hydrogen) and O (oxygen), the known formula H2O. These molecules are grouped, usually in groups of 12 to 15 molecules, which makes it "heavy" and eventually does not reach specific locations. Ideal water is known as hexagonal because it is grouped with only six molecules, thus becoming lighter, reaching previously unreached capillaries, so that it hydrates you up to six times more than ordinary water.
Water with Reduced ORP
As we age, our bodies intensify the oxidation of cells, and it is as if we rust over time. This oxidation process is responsible for releasing free radicals in our body, which are molecules capable of causing degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke, infarction, and even cancer. The way to combat this process is to consume antioxidant water, that is, a water that will reduce this oxidation, causing the number of free radicals in the body to fall dramatically. Antioxidant water must have a negative ORP (Oxygen Reduction Potential). Explains here the diseases that are associated with free radicals.
Negative Pral Water
Good Pral is a crucial point that you need to consider when choosing the water you will consume. Much more than being alkaline, it must have alkalizing power. This power is measured through PRAL.
PRAL is an acronym for Potential Renal Acid Load. Remer and Manz described PRAL in 1995. Both were able for the first time to calculate the acid or alkaline charge of food by comparing its consumption with urinary pH measurement.
The kidneys have a limited ability to eliminate acids through the urine, and more and more processed and processed foods, as well as excess sulfur protein intake, have made our diet more acidic. Thus with positive PRAL, it eventually leads to diseases, while alkaline diets with negative PRAL protect us. PRAL is then a metric used to determine if the food has an acidifying or alkalizing power.
Studies have shown that an excellent PRAL diet prevents and treats essential diseases such as diabetes. Recently a study published at a renowned US university published a study proving the benefits of a PRAL Negative diet. Learn more by clicking here.
