Alkaline Water – Truly Beneficial or BS?

Alkaline Water - Truly Beneficial?

The human body’s total weight is made up of about 60 to 70 percent water, so it seems to me that water plays an important role in our daily lives, right? I’d say so! But, is there a difference between drinking tap water and drinking Alkaline water or bottled water? To understand the importance of Alkaline water we have to first understand what it is.

What is Alkaline Water?

The acidity or alkalinity of your water determines what its pH level is. The pH scale runs from zero to 14, with 7 being neutral, and anything below 7 being acidic. Anything above 7 is considered to be alkaline, with very alkaline substances having a pH of 14. There is no clear concrete evidence about the benefits of drinking Alkaline water, so its up to you to make your own conclusion today, is drinking Alkaline water truly beneficial or is it just a bunch of BS? As you’ll see below, some studies suggest great things about drinking Alkaline or high pH water but your biggest concern should be staying hydrated. Drink a well filtered water free of high levels of fluoride and other possible carcinogens. That’s step one! You might be shocked to learn that fluoride in your drinking water may be damaging your brain.

Some Studies Attribute Big Benefits to Drinking Alkaline Water

While there’s certainly more research to be done, according to recent studies, those who drank Alkaline water lost a total of 12 pounds over 2 months. The benefits of drinking Alkaline water are said to help maintain metabolism, reduce appetite, support healthy probiotics, and promote healthy weight loss. You can read in more detail about Alkaline Water on Life Ionizers Website.

The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake of fluid, including water, for men is roughly about 13 cups and for women it’s about 9 cups total per day. It seems to me that drinking Alkaline water will definitely help with, but not guarantee, different health benefits. The main fact is that drinking water is the #1 important thing to consume before, during and after a workout.

According to Fit Life TV, during ionization your alkaline water filter forms your water into micro clusters that are more easily absorbed at the cellular levels thus “super hydrating” your body. (Fit Life TV)- Check out Fit Life TV For more information on the benefits of drinking Alkaline water.
