Alkaline water is any water that has a PH above 7.0 This can be achieved in many ways. You can add baking soda to tap water or bottled water to make it alkaline. You make water alkaline in so called Natural Processes by adding alkaline minerals to the water.
Alkaline Ionized Water
Alkaline ionized water is created by water ionizers in a process called water electrolysis. This process occurs inside the electrolysis chamber of the water ionizer machine. You must understand that there are no health benefits to drinking alkaline water.This is because alkaline water is not the same as alkaline ionized water. The key term here is Ionized and this is what makes alkaline water and alkaline ionized water two completely different things. The confusion stems from the fact that the phrases Alkaline Water and Alkaline Ionized Water are used interchangeable and are easy to confuse for the same thing to the uneducated consumer. Sellers of so called Natural alkaline water filters prey upon this confusion to trick naive shoppers in only what can be called an alkaline water scam by selling them a high priced off the shelf mineral adding filter to raise the PH of the water, just like if you raised the PH of the water by adding baking soda.
Anti-Diabetic Benefits of Alkaline Ionized Water
There have also been a number of scientific studies that indicate that alkaline ionized water may be effective in preventing and reversing diabetes. For instance, one medical study found that alkaline ionized water helped to improve glucose levels and glucose tolerance in both Type 1 diabetic and Type 2 diabetic mice. Another research study credited alkaline ionized water ability to destroy ROS with helping to prevent the type of cell damage in the pancreas that can lead to diabetes. A third study came to a similar conclusion: Alkaline ionized water protects the cells in the pancreas from ROS damage that can lead to diabetes. A fourth scientific study has found that adding alkaline ionized water to one s regular diet can lower not only glucose levels, but also other important indicators of health, such as triglyceride and total cholesterol levels.
Prevention of Other Diseases
Because alkaline ionized water acts as an antioxidant and removes ROS from the body, it can also play a role in the prevention of aging. It does so by preventing the cell damage that leads to the physiology of aging. There is also evidence that alkaline water can play a role in the prevention of other diseases and problems caused by free radicals, such as Parkinsons disease, ulcers, arteriosclerosis, and certain degenerative problems affecting the retina of the eye.
Improved Hydration due to smaller Water Clusters
Finally, alkaline water provides improved hydration for those who drink it. As mentioned earlier, alkaline ionized water consists of smaller groups of molecules than does regular tap water. As a result, these smaller groups of molecules are more quickly and easily absorbed into cells of the body. The ionized water, then, provides faster and more efficient hydration than does regular un ionized water sources.
Science behind the Health Benefits of Alkaline Water
Because alkaline ionized water contains so many active hydrogen molecules, it is able to act as a powerful antioxidant
that searches out and destroys free radicals, called reactive oxygen species (ROS). These ROS are created by many of the
metabolic and digestive processes in our bodies. As they travel throughout the body, they can damage cells and DNA,
leading to many diseases and cancers. The formation rate of diseases such as ulcers, cancers, and diabetes are encouraged
or increased by this damage. When the hydrogen molecules of alkaline ionized water search out and neutralize these harmful
free radicals, they help to prevent and lower the risk level of developing many of these diseases.
1) Our body creates fat cells to trap and neutralize acids in the system.
2) The modern diet includes meats grains, beverages and as tea, coffee, soft drinks and alcohol which has a very high level of acids in it.
3) Thus, more the intake of acidic food more are the formation of fat cells.
4) Some of the fat cells are removed from the body via waste but most of them get saturated in the body which leads to obesity.
5) The alkaline water neutralizes the acids and free radicals without creating fat cells.
6) The micro clusters of water flushes most of the fat cells and reduces obesity (fatness).
1) Ageing happens due to damage of body tissues by organic acids and by free radicals(active oxygen). 2) By reducing the accumulated waste products from the body, we can look younger. 3) The alkaline water neutralizes acidic wastes and flushes them out making you look younger.
Benefits of drinking antioxidant alkaline water
2) Detoxification of body:
a) removal of toxic products accumulated due to eating unnatural foods.
b) removal of acids from body.
3) Hydration: forms your waste into micro cluster which gets absorbed in your body more easily. Thus super ‘hydrating’ your body.
a) alkaline water acts as an antioxidant.
b) an anti-oxidant damages free radicals and convert them into oxygen.
c) this oxygen is used for energy production and tissue oxygenation.
d) cancer and most other illness cannot servive in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.
5) Alkaline you Body’s PH:
a) our body tends to be acidic because of high acid food diet, stress and exposure to environmental toxic products such as smokes, fertilizers etc.
b) the alkaline filter maintains body’s ph level from 8.5 to 9.5 ph.
c) this body tends to be
