Benefits of Alkaline Water

Drinking alkaline ionized water every day is more effective than drinking green juice. Alkaline ionized mineral water with a ph level of over 8 is very beneficial because it is easily absorbed in the body and enhances body metabolic rate and body resistance.

Anything that is not alkaline water, such as distilled or purified water, cannot neutralize the effects of acidic waste. This kind of water should be avoided, as it has had all the minerals removed from it using various processes resulting in pure H2O. The lack of minerals in the water leaches minerals from your body and makes you more acidic “the longer one drinks purified water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state. Disease and early death is more likely to be seen with the long term drinking of purified water. Fasting with purified water can be extremely dangerous since it quickly depletes the body of its vital minerals.

Improved Energy Levels – The body’s pH level can also affect a cell’s ability to produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is important to the body’s energy level. This process normally takes place within a cell’s mitochondria. If the body’s pH level is too acidic, this process does not take place as effectively.

Healthier Teeth and gums – A high level of acid and bacteria in the mouth will also increase a person’s chances for tooth decay. Many people note an improvement in their overall level of oral health after switching to a diet program that promotes an alkaline pH level in the body

Improved immunity - When the body’s pH is too acidic, cells cannot function at their optimal level. This is why a person is more likely to become ill, develop infections, or even develop cancer when their diet is acidic as compared to alkaline.

Reduced Pain and Inflamation - If you eat a diet that has an acidic effect, the body is forced to use more magnesium to help neutralize it. However, magnesium is also a useful nutrient in the body that helps to support joint and tissue functions. By eating a diet that has an alkaline effect on the body instead of an acidic effect, your body will have more magnesium available to help reduce tissue and joint pain and inflammation.

Slower Aging - When cells are subjected to an acidic environment, they function much less efficiently. Premature aging can also occur when cells are not able to get enough oxygen, and when they are not able to rid themselves of toxins. An alkaline diet can help prevent all of these scenarios.  Plus, as an added benefit, an alkaline diet program will also help you maintain a healthy weight.

Osteoporosis -  Alkaline water in combination with adequate calcium intake showed reduced bone resorption in women. This was the conclusion of a 2009 study published in the journal, “Bone.” The study compared alkaline water to calcium-rich acidic water. The decreased bone resorption that results from drinking the alkaline water increased bone density and bone strength.

Beneficial Antioxidant Properties – Alkaline water has antioxidant properties that help counteract free radicals. These free radicals can lead to pre-mature aging and other various conditions. The antioxidants being in liquid form allow for a quicker absorption into the system.  It is also believed that some elements in this water drinking water can help develop cancer resistance.

Cleansing Features – Other ionized alkaline water benefits are that it helps to cleanse the organs and is particularly effective in cleansing the colon. As unclean elements cling to and build up within the colon, over time they can become poisonous and even lethal. Using ionized water can safely and easily remove these fecal matters. It can remove build up that is weeks or even years old leading to a more effective and thorough elimination process.

Improves Physical Appearance – Along with cleansing the body’s inner systems alkaline water also rejuvenates the skin and keeps it hydrated. It helps the skin replace tissues and contributes its elasticity and overall health. It can also help detoxify the skin causing it to appear smoother and leading to fewer breakouts. When the ph balance is kept in check vital food nutrients can be more readily absorbed by the skin. This helps contribute to a younger more youthful glow.

Weight Loss – Alkaline water can also aid in your weight loss goals. It aids in the breakdown of fatty elements in food. It can also be viewed as a natural appetite suppressant since it has no calories yet can still leave you refreshed and

The recommendation to drink six to eight glasses of water a day to prevent dehydration “is not only nonsense, but is thoroughly debunked nonsense,” argues GP, Margaret McCartney in this week’s BMJ.

But drinking  better water, and less of it, is better

How it works

Ionized alkaline water contains negatively charged ions which act as powerful antioxidants. The negatively charged water attracts positively charged contaminants which detoxify the body at a cellular level and allows toxins to be flushed out of the body. The negatively charged ions in alkaline water produce high pH levels and –ORP potential.

Our bodies function best when they are neither too acid nor too alkaline. Unfortunately most of us have become acidic due to diet, drink, and stress–both psychological and from pollution. Acidity or alkalinity is measured by “pH”, which ranges from 0 on the acid side to 14 on the alkaline. Neutral is pH7. Our blood system is always working to keep itself in the narrow range of pH 7.35 to 7.45. Drinking alkaline water helps the body maintain a healthy pH level

While fruits and vegetables are alkaline foods, many other common foods are acid producing. Stress, smoking, alcohol, and a sedentary lifestyle also add to the acidity of the body.

How then do you reduce harmful acidic toxins in the body?

To assist the body in being more alkaline you can choose to: eat an 80% alkaline food (fruit and vegetable)/ 20% acid food diet (grains, meat etc.); or supplement with alkaline substances (such as vegetable juices–especially beet, carrot and greens).

But you should also know that our research shows that for many, alkaline diets can be difficult to follow and may become boring after time. Probably the easiest way to assist your body in becoming more alkaline is to drink alkaline water, the product of alkaline water ionizers.

Experts speak about alkaline water:

Bill Clinton’s Link –

Although the word “alkaline” is never used, the diets referred to — by Dr. Esselstyn and Dr. Dean Ornish — are alkaline diets, based on beans, vegetables and fruits, and avoiding meat, dairy products and chicken.

Mr. Clinton tells us that not only has he lost 24 lbs., but his whole metabolism has changed as a result of this diet. Mr. Clinton goes on to say that “82% of the people since 1986 who have gone on a plant based, no meat, no dairy diet have begin to heal themselves. Their arterial blockage breaks up, the calcium deposit around their heart breaks up”.

And here’s what these two prominent physicians, advisors to Mr. Clinton, have to say about the alkaline diet:

Esselstyn tells us “if the truth were known, coronary artery disease is a toothless paper tiger that need never exist, and if it does exist, it need never ever progress”. He is referring to the fact that we eat and drink our way into coronary artery disease, and we can prevent or even reverse heart disease with a proper diet.

Dr. Ornish then explains the great changes made by Mr. Clinton to reverse his chronic hear disease and then elaborates: “We also show that these same changes (dietary changes) stop and reverse the progression of early prostate cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, and elevated cholesterol.”

International studies show that populations with little or no history of illness, such as cancer, drink higher (pH) alkaline waters. After all potential risk factors were considered and factored out, it became evident that they had been drinking waters with a pH of 9.0 to 10.0.” Dr. Leonard Horowitz in “Aids and Ebola”

Alkaline water rids the body of acid waste. After carefully evaluating the results of my advice to hundreds of individuals, I’m convinced that toxicity in the form of acidic waste is the primary cause of degenerative disease.” Dr. Sherry Rogers, author, “Detox or Die”

“I am a big fan of electron-rich and alkaline water made from water ionizers that give water a pH of almost 10. Plants love the acidic water. I actually call this water, plasma-activated micro-ionized water, that has a smaller molecule cluster of 1 to 2 molecules versus 10 to 24 in most tap water.” Sam Graci, Creator of Greens+, and an internationally-renowned researcher, formulator, lecturer, consultant, and author in the field of optimal health and nutrition.

Since the waste products we are trying to discharge are acidic, the right kind of water is alkaline water. My personal recommendation is to enjoy the foods that we like, but do not over-eat or exclude any food. Eat in moderation following professional dieticians’ “balanced diet” concept, and let alkaline water do the job of cleansing acidic wastes. Do not use food to cleanse wastes, thus running the risk of creating nutritional deficiency or imbalance.” Sang Whang (“Reverse Aging”)

 

It is my opinion that ionized (alkaline) water will change the way in which all health practitioners and the public approach their health in the coming years.” Dr.Theodore Baroody in “Alkalize or Die.”

“Alkaline water, produced by a Water Ionizer has become the most important advancement in health care since Sir Alexander Fleming’s discovery of penicillin.” Dr. William Kelley, College of Metabolic Medicine, author “Cancer Cure”.

Peak performance and optimal health depend on the body’s ability to maintain a slightly alkaline state in virtually all of our cells and tissues…Drinking four to six glasses of alkaline water a day will help to neutralize over acidity and over time will help to restore your buffering ability.” Susan Lark, M.D. in “The Chemistry of Success”.

Microwater first came to notice in Japan, where researchers noted that people drinking water that came from certain fast-moving rocky mountain streams enjoyed extraordinarily good health. It turned out that this naturally occurring water was alkaline and had a different structure and electrical properties.” Larry Clapp, PhD. in “Prostate Health in 90 Days”

  Hear what President Bill Clinton and Dr. Dean Ornish have to say about the alkaline lifestyle.
  “The cells and fluids in most people’s bodies…are overly acidic. This can cause a lot of health problems. It prevents your body from neutralizing and disposing of harmful, poisonous toxins and leaves you more susceptible to the cell-damaging free radical oxidation that leads to cancer and other diseases.” Dr. Robert Atkins, noted author, health and diet expert.Just about every condition I can think of, from arthritis to diabetes to cancer, is associated with acidity” Dr. Robert Atkins, noted author, health and diet expert.

…If the blood develops a more acidic condition, then these excess acidic wastes have to be deposited somewhere in the body. If this unhealthy process continues year after year, these areas steadily increase in acidity and their cells begin to die. Other cells in the affected area may survive by becoming abnormal; these are called malignant. This is the beginning of cancer….Modern medicine treats these malignant cells as if they were bacteria and viruses. It uses chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat cancer. Yet none of these treatments will help very much if the environment of the body continues to remain acidic.” Dr. Keith Morishita, “The Hidden Truth of Cancer.”

Alkalize your body and live a healthier, more energized, and ultimately more fulfilling life. Our acid-alkaline balance is a baseline determinant of our physical health. When you break your old eating patterns, you will find yourself getting back to the real you, filled with the vitality and energy that you desire and deserve.” Anthony Robbins, Author of “Awaken The Giant Within”

In 1996 Dr. Lynda Frassetto at the University of California, San Francisco, discovered that as we age, starting around age 45, we lose the alkaline buffer bicarbonates in our blood. By the age of 90, we lose 18% of bicarbonates in our blood. This loss was shown to be diet induced. This is from the published abstract

“Our group has shown that contemporary net acid-producing diets do indeed characteristically produce a low-grade systemic metabolic acidosis in otherwise healthy adult subjects, and that the degree of acidosis increases with age, in relation to the normally occurring age-related decline in renal functional capacity.”

More than seventy percent of the human body is made up of water, so the water that we drink is clearly important to our health. Numerous experts agree that it is extremely beneficial to use a water ionizer. Alkaline water should be consumed every day to replenish the losses and to ensure that all acid is neutralized. Drinking 3 to 4 liters of water from an alkaline water ionizer every day can also help to ensure that the nutrients and minerals we consume are carried to the cells more efficiently.

Doctors advise that the optimal water should have an alkaline level of pH 9 to pH 10. Alkaline water systems, when used in the home, ensure that the water we drink from the tap has this optimal pH. They also filter the water to ensure that there are no dangerous contaminants. An alkaline water ionizer might not be a miracle cure, but it can certainly be a great compliment to a healthy diet and exercise regimen.

University Health Study Shows Drinking Alkaline Water can Improve your Health

The Shiga University of Medical Health recently did a study involving the effects of ionized water when used for the treatment or improvement of abdominal complaints. The double-blind clinical tests used clean water as the placebo and the overall improvement rate was far higher when using alkaline ionized water than that of the group using the placebo. Alkaline ionized water rated higher in the treatment of such conditions as chronic diarrhea and other abdominal complaints. It should come as no big surprise that drinking alkaline ionized water can rapidly improve conditions such as these and provides a greatly reduced effect of other conditions as well.

Alkaline water in combination with adequate calcium intake showed reduced bone resorption in women. Bone reabsorption is a natural process the body undergoes as it ages. This process tends to reduce bone density as bone replacement becomes slower. Reduced bone resorption means greater bone density and lower risk of osteoporosis. This was the conclusion of a 2009 study published in the journal, “Bone.” The study compared alkaline water to calcium-rich acidic water. The decreased bone resorption that results from drinking the alkaline water increased bone density and bone strength.

CLINICAL Impovements Obtained From The Intake Of Reduced Water (Alkaline Water)

Extracts from ” Presentation At The Eight Annual International Symposium On man And His Environment in Health And Disease” on February 24th 1990, at The Grand Kempinski Hotel, Dalls, Texas, USA by Dr. H. Hayashi, M.D. and Dr. M Kawamura, M.D., on : -

The Ministry of Health and Welfare in Japan announced in 1965 that the intake of reduced water is effective for restoration of intestinal flora metabolism.

Study says it has noticed an improvement in people with diabetes, liver function exams in hepatic disorders, in gastroduodenal ulcers and prevention of their recurrences, in hypertension and hypotension, in allergic disorders such as asthma, urticaria, rhinites and atopic dermatitis, in persistent diarrhoea which occurred after gastrectomy and a decline in uric acid levels in patients with gout.

Toxin Neutralisation
Prof. Kuwata Keijiroo, Doctor of Medicine

His patient was diagnosed with cardiovascular disease and deteriorated with conventional medical attention.  It was only when a family member introduced alkaline water, did he recover.

In the United States, cardiovascular diseases account for more than one-half of the approximate 2 million deaths occurring each year…. It is estimated that optimal conditioning of drinking water could reduce this cardiovascular disease mortality rate by as much as 15 percent in the United States) From: Report of the Safe Drinking Water Committee of the National Academy of Sciences, 1977

Is the Ionizing Water Filter just another new, unproved fad?

The Water Ionizers have been in use worldwide for more than 25 years. The same concept has been used for home and industrial applications. In Korea, it has been approved by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare. Millions are already in use in Japan. In the USA large companies such as Costco are now beginning to use commercial alkaline water ionizers for bottling water.
