Drinking water is necessary for living. You’ve likely heard that you should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day to stay healthy. According to new research, you may need more than that – up to 15 glasses a day.
Drinking pure and preferably alkaline water is the best choice for your health.
Why Do You Want To Stay Alkaline?
The potential hydrogen – or more commonly known as the pH scale – ranges from 0 to 14 with 7 being neutral in the middle. Less than 7 is an acidic pH and more than 7 is alkaline.
In order to stay alive, your body needs to stay in a slightly alkaline state.
When your body becomes too acidic, you may start experiencing the following:
- Low energy
- Digestive troubles
- Weight gain
- Frequent colds and infections
The more acidic your body becomes, the more susceptible it becomes to serious diseases, including cancer.
Food can determine your overall pH levels and therefore, lead to health or illness, depending on what you are consuming.
1931 Nobel Prize Winner, Dr. Otto Warburg discovered a long time ago that 95% of all cancers have acidic environment as a cause behind them and that cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment with a pH of 7.36 or more. According to Dr. Warburg, excess acidity – or otherwise known, acidosis – also leads to other diseases, including osteoporosis, diabetes, heart diseases and nearly all chronic illnesses that are common today.
It is highly likely that your current ills are a result of an acidic environment within your body.
You can easily prevent or change this by keeping your body at a healthy alkaline state by eating fresh organic vegetables and other plant foods, drinking pure water and living a stress-free, positive lifestyle.
What Is Alkaline Water And Why Is It Important?
This may surprise you, but your tap water is full of chlorine, antibiotics, hormones and metals. By drinking it, all this goes into your system, creating an unhealthy, acidic environment.
Impure water may make your immune system vulnerable to all kinds of conditions, therefore, drinking pure and preferably alkaline water is incredibly crucial.
How To Make Alkaline Water
You can purchase alkalizing water bottles, sticks and/or buy an alkalizing system for your home, but you can also stay on the cheap end by making alkaline water with lemons.
Lemons are potent pH-balancing fruits. Despite their acidic taste, they are highly alkaline, creating an alkaline environment in your body. They are also a powerful antibacterial and disinfectant with 22 anti-cancer properties.
