Alkaline Water Benefits

The pH level of all water varies dependent on the source for that water. Experts state that natural water
from a spring typically has a pH that is acidic. Those that are advocates of alkaline water believe that
drinking water that is alkaline will help neutralize acid in the bloodstream, leading to increased oxygen
levels as well as increased energy and metabolism. However, clinical research has not been able to
validate these benefits.

Claims of Alkaline Water Benefits


1. Antioxidant Properties
Water that is alkaline has antioxidant properties that help by counteracting free radicals. These free radicals can cause pre-mature
aging and other types of conditions. The antioxidants are in liquid form which allows for quicker absorption into the system. So
these benefits are significantly clear since alkaline water has anti-aging and anti-diseases properties. It is also believed that in this
water for drinking there are certain elements that will aid in developing cancer resistance.
2. Cleansing Features
Other benefits of alkaline water are that it will help to cleanse the organs; particularly the colon. As this unclean buildup in the
colon continues, it eventually becomes poisonous and in some cases lethal. Using alkaline water is safe and will easily remove this
fecal material. It will remove build up that is weeks or even years old and this leads to a more thorough and effective process of
elimination. This helps decrease the recurrence of constipation and other unhealthy issues. As you drink it regularly (daily) and
keep the system cleansed and in good working order you will become less susceptible to stomach viruses, flus, colds, and other
illnesses that are fairly common.
3. Physical Appearance Benefits
Along with the body cleansing of the inner systems, water that is alkaline also rejuvenates the skin and keeps it hydrated. It aids
the skin in replacing tissues and as well contributes to its elasticity and the overall health of the skin. It will also help with
detoxifying the skin and causing it to look smoother and leading to fewer breakouts. When the balance in pH is kept in check by
eating good food, nutrients can be more readily absorbed by the skin. This contributes to a younger more youthful look. Water that
is alkaline aids in your goals for weight loss by the breakdown of fatty essentials in food. It can also be seen and used as a natural
suppressant of appetite since it has no calories yet is able to leave you satisfied and refreshed. All of these physical improvements
combined will make you feel revitalized and younger.
4. Other Health Benefits
Other features of water are that it also lubricates muscles and joint to help with stopping injuries. This helps those who are prone to

sprains or who may suffer from arthritis. As well dehydration can harm organs such as the heart to work harder. Clean organs do
not have to work as much when they are clean nor expend the energy to maintain functioning.
Scientific Facts about Alkaline Water
1. What is PH?
Within chemistry, pH is the measure of the acidity or basicity of any aqueous solution. Solutions that have a pH less than 7 are
referred to as acidic and solutions having a pH greater than 7 are alkaline. Pure water has a pH that is close to 7.

2. Science Behind Alkaline Water


Since alkaline water has a pH level that is higher than tap water, there are plenty of proponents who make the claims you have read
in this article. However this is not the opinion of the physicians and researchers. They have not been able to verify or reproduce
any of these claims in the lab or other medical setting.
Some studies do make the suggestion that alkaline water can help slow bone loss but further research is needed to decide if this has
any influence overall on bone mineral density and if the benefit can be maintained over the long term.
3. Cautions of Drinking Alkaline Water
Theres also the issue of water pH acidic water versus alkaline water. There are a lot of amazing health assertions about alkaline
water, but are they really true? Most of them arent. It is best to drink water that is between 6.5 and 8 pH levels. As for being
harmful to drink alkaline water over the long run all we do know is that it has been shown to be harmful to plants and animals.
In the case of alkaline water that is naturally there is no problem in drinking up to 2 liters a day. Since the alkalinity is a result of
naturally minerals such as magnesium and calcium, the body is capable of using these minerals if needs and discarding or storing
any excess. You will not become too alkaline by drinking alkaline water that is naturally.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT ALKALINE WATER THAT MAKES IT SO


HEALTHFUL?
The body is perfectly capable of maintaining its own pH balance provided it receives the proper
nutrients. When the body is not getting enough alkaline minerals from food and water, it must rob
calcium from its own bones to neutralize acidity. This is not ideal and once the body's readily available
alkaline mineral supplies are depleted, it becomes overly acidic.
It is important to note that water can be either naturally alkaline or artificially alkaline. Why? Naturally
alkaline water contains the alkaline minerals the body needs to combat acidity. Artificially alkaline

water, such as water from a typical alkaline water ionizer machine, has a pH that is artificially
increased and does not have any more alkaline minerals than the original water used to supply the
machine. Artificially alkaline water has also been proven to cause side effects, and from a chemical
perspective, such a water cannot be found anywhere in nature.
"Eat what Nature provides. Whenever people have attempted to 'improve' on Nature, they go
wrong." - Wallace D Wattles
It makes perfect sense. What benefits could artificial alkalinity provide when it passes through the
stomach which has a constant acidic pH? Only the alkaline minerals found in naturally alkaline water
can create alkalinity past the stomach. Artificially alkaline water is completely neutralized in the
stomach and offers the body no additional alkaline minerals to combat acidity. Only naturally alkaline
water has the minerals the body needs to combat acidity and build its acid buffering reserves.
When drinking artificially alkaline water continuously, side effects can develop. To read more about the
two types of alkaline water and the side effects of consuming artificially alkaline water, please read the

ALKALINE WATER SHOULD BE THE FIRST THING YOU T RY


There are many health benefits associated with drinking alkaline water. So many, in fact, that if you are
experiencing any health issues, alkaline water should be the first thing on your list to try. Without
drinking an adequate amount of alkaline water daily, as nature intended, anything else you are doing to
improve your health may be limited in its success.

MARIE E., DENVER, CO

DID YOU KNOW THAT WATER CAN BE EITHER NATURALLY


ALKALINE OR ARTIFICIALLY ALKALINE?

It's true. Naturally alkaline water has a chemical makeup that differs significantly from artificially
alkaline water. More important, however, is the fact that artificially alkaline water causes side effects
and should generally be avoided as a daily drinking water.

WHAT THEY DON'T TELL YOU...


READING THIS REPORT WILL ANSWER THE FOLLOWING
QUESTIONS

What is the difference between naturally and artificially alkaline water?


What are the side effects of drinking artificially alkaline water or ionized water?
Why do people see benefits in the first 30 days of drinking ionized water?
Why does continued consumption result in side effects?
Which water systems create naturally alkaline water?
Are there other important aspects of water besides the pH or alkalinity?

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN NATURAL LY AND


ARTIFICIALLY ALKALINE WATER?
When measured in drinking water, an alkaline pH can be a result of either natural or unnatural
conditions in the water. Thus when comparing two waters, each with a pH of 9.5, one can be healthful
while the other causes side effects.
Water ionizers split apart water molecules with electricity to artificially create alkaline water. Why is
this artificial? All water found in nature has a pH that perfectly corresponds to the minerals in the
water. When you drink alkaline water, the body assumes it is receiving alkaline minerals, like calcium
and magnesium. The problem with ionized water is that the body thinks it is receiving more alkaline
minerals than what are actually present in the water. For further explanation, please read The Truth
About Alkaline Water Ionizers - Common Misconceptions About pH.
If our goal is to be healthy, why would we drink or eat anything artificial? For the companies
manufacturing ionizer machines, creating naturally alkaline water simply costs too much. Dont expect
the manufactures to start discussing the issue anytime soon. Most people never question whether water
is naturally or artificially alkaline and these companies prefer it that way.

WHAT SIDE EFFECTS RESULT FROM DRINKING IONIZED


WATER?
Artificially alkaline water only neutralizes acidity where it has direct contact, like the stomach and
upper bowel. When consumed daily, the upper bowel in particular becomes overly alkaline and side
effects begin to appear. Most common are erratic heart behavior, hypertension, nervousness/anxiety,
urinary tract and bladder infections, and stabbing side pains.
We have spoken to numerous individuals who were hospitalized for heart conditions that magically

disappeared when they stopped drinking artificially alkaline or ionized water. Why would anyone
ingest anything unnatural when natural alternatives are available at a comparable cost?
More severe side effects were observed in a clinical study involving rats. The study revealed injury to
cardiac tissue (heart muscle) as a result of drinking ERW (Electrolyzed Reduced Water), or water
created by ionizer machines (artificially alkaline water). In an age when heart disease is a leading killer,
ionized water is simply not a smart choice.
For links to clinical studies demonstrating side effects from ionized water consumption, please see the
bottom of this page.

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE SEE BENEFITS WHEN DRINKING


IONIZED WATER FOR THE FIRST 30 DAYS?
Before the body is stressed by the artificial alkalinity, it enjoys two wonderful benefits from drinking
ionized water- increased hydration and more antioxidants. In fact, if these machines could do what they
do WITHOUT altering the pH, they would not be nearly as harmful. The low ORP (one measure of
antioxidant effects) and microclustering are responsible for 99% of all benefits observed from drinking
ionized water.

IS IT OK TO DRINK ALKALINE WATER DAILY? CAN ONE


BECOME TOO ALKALINE?
For excellent health, it is important to drink naturally alkaline water daily. Doing so supplies the body
with the alkaline minerals it needs to buffer acid. While all of these minerals are not nutritionally
available, they do buffer acid. To learn more about the benefits of alkaline water, please read Alkaline
Water Benefits.
In the case of naturally alkaline water, it is recommended to drink at least two liters per day. Since the
alkalinity is a result of naturally alkaline minerals like calcium and magnesium, the body is capable of
using the minerals it needs and storing or discarding any excess. You cannot become overly alkaline
drinking naturally alkaline water.
If you are drinking ionized water or artificially alkaline water, it is always advised to measure your
body's pH daily and regulate your consumption accordingly. Ionized water should not be used as a
daily drinking water as you can easily become too alkaline and harm the body.

WHICH WATER SYSTEMS CRE ATE NATURALLY ALKALINE


WATER?
In nature, water flows down mountain streams and picks up alkaline minerals from rocks in the stream.
Water systems that create naturally alkaline water work the same way. The water flows around a gravel
bed to naturally pick up alkaline minerals. What's the best way to determine if an alkaline water system

creates alkalinity naturally or artificially? Naturally alkaline water systems are typically much larger
than the artificial variety and they do not use electricity.
When you begin comparing water systems, you will find that the AquaLiv Water System truly creates
the most healthful water available today. It mimics natural processes to create a structured, naturally
alkaline water direct from your tap. No electricity. No shortcuts. Just naturally perfect water that heals.
