Alkaline water is a pure and clean water that represents the cornerstone of wellbeing. The water intake is essential for the body to function well. First of all, alkaline water has antioxidant properties, it neutralizes the free radicals, namely those that often cause degenerative conditions, such as cancer. Alkaline water makes more oxygen available to the cancer cells, so their development is slowed down or even stopped. Therefore, the consumption of alkaline water is a cornerstone of wellbeing, keeping the body within the optimal functional parameters.
Alkaline water contains more alkaline minerals and oxygen compared to acid or neutral water. And thanks to the high pH, it neutralizes the acid in the blood flow, enhances the metabolism and helps the body absorb the nutrients efficiently. Further more, this type of water prevents cancer, arthritis, as well as other degenerative diseases.
The most significant benefits
Removes toxic substances. Alkaline water neutralizes the acidity and removes the acid residues from cells and tissues. It helps eliminate the toxic substances accumulated in the body following the consumption of certain foods and medication, and prevents the natural aging process. The accumulation and deposits of acid residues in the body may alter health.
Hydrates. Alkaline water is more easily absorbed at cellular level and thus contributes to maintaining an optimal body hydration.
Oxygenates. Alkaline water acts as an antioxidant, efficiently neutralizes the free radicals and blocks their negative action on the body. Moreover, alkaline water can turn the free radicals into oxygen that the body can transform into energy, and the cancer or degenerative cells cannot survive in an oxygenated, alkaline environment.
Alkalinizes the pH. The body’s pH tends to be acid because of food intake, stress and exposure to the toxic substances in the environment, but alkaline water helps balance the pH and turns the body into an alkaline environment favorable to a normal state of health. Further more, it enhances the immune system by strengthening the body’s ability to fight diseases.
How can homemade alkaline water be obtained?
Besides the costlier alternative of purchasing a water ionizer, alkaline water can be obtained simply with the aid of products that can be found in any household.
Put tap water, bottled water, distilled water or spring water in a large container. The container must not be filled up, to be able to mix later. Add one teaspoonful of sodium bicarbonate to the container and mix well. Test the water’s pH with a special test that you can find in drugstores. The water’s pH level should be 8.5-9%. If this value has not been reached, add a little more bicarbonate. The mixture may be stored in the refrigerator, but don’t forget to mix it before you consume it.
Lemons are the world’s only anionic food. What makes lemons different is that they have one additional electron in their chemical structure. Therefore, when you consume a mixture of water and lemons, the body reacts to the properties of the lemons and turns the water in the mixture into alkaline water as the body digests it. In order to obtain alkaline water, fill a large glass container with water and cut one lemon into eight wedges. Add the wedges to the water without squeezing them. Cover the container and allow it to rest at room temperature for 8-to-12 hours. You can prepare it in the evening and leave it rest over night, so you’ll have the water ready in the morning.
