Tap water contains heavy metals, nitrates and hundreds of phytosanitary products. Water is certainly “clean” for consumption, since microbes are killed by chlorine, but many substances harmful to health are present. By drinking this water, you accumulate all these poisons in your body. When you cook with this water, it’s even worse: the poisons mix with food and other nutrients, becoming even more easily assimilated…
Little by little you accumulate toxic elements in the liver and other sensitive organs, which do not become truly dangerous until after several years, after their slow accumulation.
The solution does not lie in the filters to be placed on your tap or in the filter jugs because their filters only serve to mask the taste of chlorine and remove the largest particles. These filters do not filter the finest particles which are the most toxic because they settle deep inside our organs.
Alkaline water is proving to be a solution that helps maintain the acid / basic balance in your body.
In the context of an acid-base imbalance, many health problems cannot be excluded; which means that acidity is responsible for many ailments. We are exposed to pollution on a daily basis. Added to this is the stress due to our rhythmic lifestyle. Foods available on the market do not help our situation either.
Indeed, they emit acid waste in our body. This is why we are almost all victims of acidosis. Acidosis results in increased acidification of the body.
Indeed, during the transformation of food in the digestive tract, the digestive environment becomes acid to allow the dissolution of chewed food into nutrients. During this chemical process, certain foods lead to greater production of acid, because these foods are difficult to convert into nutrients.
Excess or habit of consuming these foods will in the long run promote functional dyspepsia also called gastric acidity. This stomach acid is manifested by stomach pain during and / or after meals, belching, bloating or heartburn.
These pains are quite annoying, uncomfortable and sometimes painful. Fortunately, most of them are transient. It should be emphasized however that these evils which are often temporary can become your daily life if you do not change your eating habits.
Another way to end this discomfort and stomach pain is to consume alkaline foods or drinks such as alkaline water.
Alkaline waters are not yet widely known in Europe, but they have been widely used in the USA, Japan and other Asian countries for more than 40 years. This equipment for alkalizing water is certified as a fully-fledged medical device by the Korean and Japanese Ministries of Health. This proves the real benefits of alkaline water on disease.
What is Alkaline Water, what does pH mean?
The pH, abbreviation of Hydrogen Potential is a coefficient which allows to know if a solution is acidic or basic (alkaline) or neutral. For a pH below 7, the solution is said to be acidic; neutral if it is equal to 7; and basic or alkaline if it is greater than 7.
As a reminder, the pH of human blood is between 7.35 – 7.4, therefore slightly alkaline. To maintain this level, the human body uses bicarbonates and minerals present and active in your bones, cartilage, hair or teeth.
As part of significant acidity, your body systematically suffers from demineralization. To meet your body’s mineral needs, consider drinking 1.5 or 2 liters per day of alkaline water. This must obviously be accompanied by a healthy lifestyle, that is to say, a healthy diet, rich in vegetables and fruits.
