Now you may have heard the hype around alkaline water and the word from advocates who claim that it has many health benefits.
We know that our bodies thrive when it is well hydrated but what benefit does drinking alkaline water provide and what exactly is it?
Alkaline water occurs naturally when water passes over rocks, such as a spring, and picks up minerals. You can also buy alkaline water that has been created through a process called electrolysis. The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level of alkaline water is higher than that of regular drinking water, because of this, advocates of alkaline water believe this is the crucial component that enables it to provide its numerous health benefits. Some research findings suggest alkaline water may be advantageous for alleviating certain conditions.
Some of the health claims proposed by alkaline water advocates also include:
● cancer resistance ● colon-cleansing properties ● weight loss ● anti-aging properties (via liquid antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body) ● immune system support ● hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties ● Reduced bone density ● Improved digestion
Water is important to every tissue, cell, and organ in your body. Increasing your water intake is one of the most effective ways you can enhance your health.
