Water is health. Water is life. Today is World Water Day. Indeed, it is also a day when we must remember, honor and feel grateful for this most precious resource that our Earth is blessed with. You must be aware that 70% of our bodies is composed of water. In order to have it functioning optimally, we must constantly replenish the water lost. No, cold drinks do not count. As a matter of fact, they are extremely harmful for our bodies. The high sugar and caffeine content leaches our bodies of water and important minerals.
Did you know that you need to drink 12 glasses of water to neutralize the bad effects of 1 glass of cold drink?
I remember the days of yore when bottled water had not taken over our lives. I remember that water filter came into our family much later. I also remember drinking water from the roadside from the water vendors without a qualm and never really falling sick. Perhaps our immunities were better or that our water sources were not this depleted and polluted. Either way, these days we cannot do without our RO (reverse osmosis) or filtered water to ensure that it is safe for consumption for us and our kids.
There is nothing that actually quenches our body’s thirst like pure water.
We carry filtered water everywhere feeling safe that the water we are drinking is good for health. But recently I found out some very surprising information about purified water. RO, tap water, filtered water and distilled water have water that is acidic as all the essential minerals are removed from it. Acidic water is unhealthy for human body. This water also has high Oxidation-Reduction Potential (ORP) which means that it is replete with free radicals that cause many diseases like acidity, constipation and even certain types of cancers. Alkaline, ionized water with anti-oxidants is healthy. It protects the body from infections and diseases and keeps it healthy.
Did you know that our body is always maintained at a pH of around 7.365 which is alkaline? This means that the more acidic water or acid producing foods like alcohol, chips, colas, etc. we consume, the more difficult it is for our bodies to maintain its optimal alkaline pH. If this pH is not maintained then problems like fatigue, depression, acidity, headaches, muscular pain, constipation etc. surface. Long term diseases like cancers, osteoporosis etc. may also occur.
An easy solution to this problem is by drinking alkaline water of pH 8.5+.
The benefits of drinking alkaline ionized water are:
- Keeps the body well hydrated to function optimally and stay healthy.
- Facilitates weight loss
- Maintains good skin
- Enhances immunity and prevents diseases
- High oxygen levels in water help in better delivery of nutrients to body cells. These cells function efficiently and thus stay healthy.
It is time to seriously think about the water that we are consuming every day. If you fall sick often and do not feel well and energized, do reconsider your food and water choices. Try to consume more vegetables and fruits. And pay special attention to your water. Drink alkaline ionized water.
