Why Alkaline Water?
By Dr. Robert O. Young
Like the earth on which we live, our bodies are 70% water. And like the earth, the pH of our body's sea is critical. Our blood has to maintain a pH of 7.365. If that pH is only slightly altered to just 7, more acidic, you would die from poisoning by your own blood.
How do we become acidic? Much of our modern diet is acid forming and most of our body functions—movement, thoughts, etc.—also produce acidic waste. Fortunately, our bodies have processes that work to eliminate the acid by products. But if we're over acidic then our body's "balancing" processes become over-worked as they try to get rid of the acid. This is why alkaline water from a water ionizer is so important. It helps the body maintain the proper balance and takes stress off the system—stress that results in aging and weight gain.
You are, literally, what you drink. If you drink acidic water, you're going to be acidic. If you drink alkaline water, your body will be alkaline. Tap water and many bottled waters just don’t cut it.
If your cells don't get the buffering they need from the water you provide them, they are going to pull alkalizing mineral salts from the bones, muscles, and elsewhere in the body—leaving those areas undefended. For optimal health, you need water that's pure, alkaline, charged with electrons, and has the ideal molecular structure.
Using a quality water machine has many benefits. Water ionizers can change the pH of your water how acid or alkaline it is. Water machines can also structure your water, creating smaller molecule clusters, making it easier for your body to hydrate. Ionizers also alter the Oxidation Reduction Potential of alkaline water, essentially making it more energetic for you body's use.
The benefits that come when you drink the alkaline water from an ionizer, help your body rid itself of acids, in the form of fats and toxins, that cause aging. In these ways, a quality water ionizer is one of the best investments you can make for your health.
