Benefits of Alkaline Water

Diet, stress, and exposure to toxins take a huge toll on our bodies. Much of the food we eat, and the beverages we drink lower the body’s pH, and accelerate damage to tissues, which results poor health and premature aging.

Ordinary water does nothing to help. Today’s drinking water is laden with toxins, and treated with so many chemicals that it has been rendered a lifeless, tasteless liquid. Here is where alkaline water comes into the picture. Alkaline water has a higher pH level than does plain tap water, proponents say that it can neutralise acid in your bloodstream. 

Here is a list of ways you and your family can benefit from alkaline water :

  • Helps neutralise and release acidic waste, which encourages fat loss.
  • Help neutralise lactic acid, which promotes faster recovery time after exercising.
  • Helps boost immune system.
  • Increases energy.
  • Helps promote strong bones.
  • Helps heal minor skin irritations.
  • Promotes better, restful sleep.
  • Helps skin stay soft and hydrated.
  • Has sanitising properties that can be used in topical skin applications.
  • Helps flush out toxins to promote a clear and healthy complexion.
  • Fights free radicals that accelerate ageing.
  • Eliminates the need for many cleaning supplies by sanitising surfaces with its germ-fighting properties.
  • Helps reduce plastic bottle waste because it is eco-friendly.
  • Cleans produce effectively by breaking down and washing away oil-based pesticides and insecticides.

When you start drinking alkaline water, normal side effects may include headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, a runny nose, and other flu-like symptoms.  Also, your stool will likely be darker, softer, or more odorous and you may experience gas.  These side-effects are a good sign, as they are directly related to the detoxification that your body is undergoing as the micro-clustered water penetrates deep into your tissues and expels acid waste and toxins that have accumulated in your body over time. Side-effects will subside once your body has become accustomed to the water, anywhere from 2-3 days to 2-3 weeks, depending on each individual and the level of detoxification that the body needs to undergo.

    Informative post. We should also have a practice of “oil pulling”.
    I personally tried for few months and it was magical.

        See, it’s simple. Every morning when you get up, before drinking water or eating anything or brushing your teeth, take a spoonful of oil, any cooking oil preferably sesame. Put it inside your mouth along with a pinch of salt and turmeric powder. Do not swallow it, keep spinning it inside slowly, otherwise you will feel pain, for 20 mins. Then spit it out. Now, gargle your mouth 20 times with warm water preferably. That’s it. Then you may brush your teeth. There are numerous benefits. It makes your teeth strong, more than you could ever imagine. Saves you from bad smell. Then, also helps saving you from diabetes and other deadly diseases. You can’t imagine. You will never have teeth ache, that’s a promise. It will repair your affected teeth. In fact, I started this when I was facing severe teeth ache issue, it was at its extreme end, not able to control through any tablets. Oil pulling solved it forever. I used to do it with any available oil and just a pinch of salt and gargle with normal water, not even warm. It worked wonders. The problem is to make it a habit. But, once you practice it for 4-8 days, you will start feeling the benefits immediately and you will never be able to miss doing it. Google it and find out the procedure. But, you can stick to a simplest procedure possible 🙂

      That’s a great choice. Some sources say that lemon water has an alkalizing effect, meaning that it can neutralize stomach acid, which may reduce acid reflux. However, this is not backed up by research. Lemon juice is acidic, with a pH of 3, while water has a pH of around 7, which is neutral. This means it is neither acidic nor alkaline.

      I am glad you liked it. For example, a 2012 studyTrusted Source found that drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux. Another study suggested that drinking alkaline ionized water may have benefits for people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. A more recent study that included 100 people found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels.
