What is the alkaline water?2011-2-26 11:13:01
Alkaline water is said to be of benefit to people's health because it helps neutralize the chemical imbalances of the body, which some believe tend to run too acidic. Further, proponents note that many common foods are also acidic, further upsetting the balance. It is claimed to aid in the treatment of asthma, help hydrate better between cells, help heartburn, reduce indigestion and aid with many other ailments.
Alkaline water can be obtained from a number of different sources. Most commonly, an alkalizer is added to a tap water system, such as a kitchen sink. From there, it can be used for both drinking and cooking. The other alternative is to buy bottled alkaline water. While this may be the more expensive option over time, it is a simple way to get the product quickly.
Some believe that the stated health benefits of alkaline water are overstated, and that it has little to do with stabilizing or reducing acidity in the body. In fact, some argue the stated health benefits are simply a fabrication of those in the industry and are doubtful at best. In short, they are only mentioned in order to make money.
There are a number of reasons why the health benefits of ionized water may be overstated, according to certain scientists. Some chemists say water is not conductive enough to go through any significant ionization. Also, alkaline water has no benefit once it hits the stomach because of the acids in the stomach, it is argued. For those wishing to neutralize stomach acid, it is easier to use one of the many products available on the market such as acid reducers in pill or liquid form.
The decision to use or not use an alkaline water product is a personal decision. The arguments presented here are simply meant to provide both sides of a debate that is continuing. In the end, like any consumer food or drink choice, personal preference may be more pivotal than the scientific consensus.
Alkaline Water Is Nature's Antioxidant.
Alkaline Ionized Water acts as a powerful natural antioxidant. The human body consists of 70% water - would it not make sense that it is important for us to drink the best water available to fulfill our body's needs? Ionized water contains a negative electric charge which produces hydroxyl ions - these charged particles help with:
Improves hydration of the cells
Neutralizes harmful free radicals
Enhances waste removal from cells
Improves cellular communication
Enhances metabolic efficiency
Improves nutrient absorption
Supports immune functions
Balances body PH
Strengthens immune system
Restores cell function
Improves mental clarity
Increases fat burning
Disease prevention and more!
Alkaline water works as an antacid as well, neutralizing the acidic condition of your body through its diet. The resulting lower acid levels help prevent cell deterioration, which in turn slows or stops some sickness and chronic disease. Ionized alkaline water can help with more well known acid related problems such as acid reflux and chronic heartburn.
Ionized Water has smaller molecules, allowing for better cellular penetration and hydration
EHM Alkaline Water Ionizers produce water that has 5 to 6 molecules per cluster which is smaller than regular water molecule clusters. This smaller particle size allows the water better access to smaller pathways through your tissue - your water literally becomes wetter! This form of "microwater" is 6 times more hydrating than conventional water, and makes more oxygen available to your cells. This accelerates your metabolism and boosts your energy.
Hydroxyl Ions (OH-) in the ionized water have been electrically charged to seek out and neutralize free radicals. Free radicals cause damage to cells and bring about disease and (premature) aging. The result is a body rich in health, oxygen and energy. If you slow the water flow down when using a water ionizer, you will notice that your glass will have hundreds of very small bubbles floating in it. These bubbles are caused by the hydroxyl ions and are visual proof that your water now carries a negative ORP or Oxidation Reduction Potential.
A high positive ORP (such as found in most bottled and city water that have excess H+ ions) causes oxidation and accelerates the aging process. In comparison, when you drink ionized water, you are drinking a powerful, natural antioxidant that renews on a cellular level.
In the modern world our oxygen levels are depleted due to stress, environmental pollution, diet and lack of exercise, amongst other things. Oxygen helps our body to destroy cancer cells, remove waste, carry nutrients and also helps in fighting bacteria and viruses that try to invade your body.
If you make fresh organic juice you will have an antioxidant with a -250 ORP. Ionized water from a EHM Water Machine will give you between -250 and -810 depending on your water source - And you will be able to drink and enjoy as much as you need throughout the day without any negative side effects or added calories.
If you prefer to drink coffee or tea, then try making it with ionized water. Not only will what you drink be healthier but the ionized water will also pull out the taste and flavor much better than other water does.
Restore Cell Function: Alkaline water ionizer machines produce electrically charged water that has antioxidant and high pH properties. Ionized water will actually "donate" electrons to rejuvenate your cells, neutralize acids, and decrease cortisol, a main contributor to stress and aging.
Increase Hydration: Electrolyzed water is broken down into smaller molecular clusters due to its electric charge - molecules are all similarly charged, causing them to repel each other. These smaller water clusters are able to pass through smaller pathways in cells, allowing deeper penetration and hydration. Ionic water is up to six times more hydrating than conventional neutral water!
Neutralize Acids: Most American's have overly acidic diets, resulting in a multitude of health issues. Water Ionizers create alkaline (high pH) water that reduces acid diet levels in your body, lowering your body's need to utilize tissue to buffer acidic foods and drinks into a neutral pH state. Alkaline foods result in more energy and better overall health for the person with a more alkaline diet.
EHM Ionized Alkaline Water is:
Super Charged Energy Water
Save Your Wallet and Your Backyard at the Same Time: The average American spends over $500.00 per year on bottled water*. Instead, drink the world's healthiest water and cut down on un-natural plastic bottles that do the environment harm. Buy a water ionizer and/orfiltration system and drink amazingly healthy water straight from your tap as a fantastic alternative to unhealthy store water and disposable bottles! You can purchase a BPA Free EHM water bottle and bring bottled ionized alkaline water wherever you go! Learn more aboutalkaline water benefits.
Increase your Energy
Ionized Water helps to balance your body's pH through diet, which for most Americans, is too acidic. Symptoms of a toxic diet are:
Acidic environments provide ideal characteristics for disease to manifest and thrive. The human body, in an attempt to decrease acid levels, will absorb calcium from the bones, and magnesium which is needed in the heart. It turns acidic wastes into solids and stores them in fatty tissues resulting in the hardening of the arteries and excess weight.
Additionally, the body stores crystalline deposits in joints that creates gout, inflammation and stiffness. As our body's communication channels break down, cancerous cells may appear, and organs can start to degenerate. Ionized water neutralizes accumulated acid waste (which has low pH) with its alkalinity (the opposite of acid, high pH). The neutralization helps to restore balance without utilizing energy and valuable minerals that are needed elsewhere. Keeping your body alkaline is your first line of defense in fighting any disease.
Water from a EHM Water? Ionizer can reduce your fatigue and give you more energy. In Japan, ionized alkaline water has long been known as a "hangover cure" because it neutralizes alcohol in your system.
Please Don't Waste Another Dollar on Bottled Water
The American People purchase millions of bottles of water every day, which adds up to billions of dollars spent annually. Many of these people trust that bottled water is both cleaner and more healthy than tap water - the joke is on them. While bottled water is indeed "clean" (meaning all minerals and contaminants have been stripped from it), it is over 100 times more acidic than regular water because it has no alkalizing minerals in it - bottled water is more man-made than naturally occuring. Furthermore, the plastic bottles from bottled water pollute our planet and sit forever in landfill.
