Your body needs water to survive. You’ve likely heard that you should drink 8-10 glasses of water a day to stay healthy. According to new research, you may need more than that – up to 15 glasses a day. But did you know that it is not enough to just drink water, but that it also matters what kind of water you are drinking?
Many health and wellness professionals agree that drinking pure and preferably alkaline water is the best choice for your health.
Acid vs Alkaline Water
Let’s do a quick refresher of your high school chemistry lesson. Do you remember learning about pH? In chemistry, pH (potential of hydrogen) is a numeric scale used to specify the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution.
The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 0 being the most acidic and 14 being the most alkaline. If a pH is greater than 7, the food is considered alkaline. Most distilled water has a pH of 7, while lemon juice has a pH of 2. Alkaline water is rich in alkalizing minerals, like calcium, potassium, and magnesium, which make it less acidic than tap water, with a pH above 7.
Some studies suggest that eating an excess of acid-forming foods (like meat, caffeine, and sugar) causes the body to pull alkalizing minerals—like calcium—from the bone to neutralize the blood, which weakens the bone.
In order for the body to function at its optimum, it needs to stay in a slightly alkaline state. When your body becomes too acidic, you may start experiencing the following:
- Low energy
- Digestive troubles
- Weight gain
- Frequent colds and infections
- Other issues
The more acidic your body becomes, the more susceptible it becomes to serious diseases, including cancer. Food can determine your overall pH levels and therefore, lead to health or illness, depending on what you are consuming.
Dr. Otto Warburg, the Nobel Prize Winner in 1931 discovered that 95% of all cancers are caused by an acidic environment in the body and that cancer cannot survive in an alkaline environment with a pH of 7.36 or more. According to Dr. Warburg, excess acidity – or otherwise known, acidosis – also leads to other diseases, including osteoporosis, diabetes, heart diseases and nearly all chronic illnesses that are common today.
It is highly likely that many of today’s modern ailments are a result of an acidic environment within your body.
You can easily prevent or change this by keeping your body in a healthy alkaline state by eating fresh organic vegetables and other plant foods, drinking pure water and living a stress-free, positive lifestyle.
What’s in Your Tap Water
By now we all know that our tap water, even though it is treated, is unfit for human consumption. It is full of chlorine, antibiotics, contaminants and metals. Boiling the water, as Indians have been traditionally doing for years to purify water, has only a limited effect.
When you boil water at 70 degrees Celsius, it takes about 30 minutes to kill all pathogens. While it is true that boiling water kills most living organisms like germs, parasites and bacteria, they are not the only things you find in water that can be harmful to you. In addition to these living organisms, there are numerous chemicals found in the water coming out of our taps that are hazardous to us.
These chemicals include:
If you drink this water all this goes into your system creating an unhealthy, acidic environment, weakening your immune system.
How can you Alkalise Your Drinking Water?
Many water purifiers in the market today feature Reverse Osmosis (RO) technology. This is a water purification technology that uses a semipermeable membrane with capillaries as small as 0.0001 microns to remove dissolved impurities such as salts, contaminants, and heavy metals from water. Reverse Osmosis is capable of removing up to 99%+ of the dissolved salts (ions), particles, colloids, organics, bacteria and pyrogens from the water.
However, while removing dissolved impurities, RO Purifiers also remove some essential minerals from the drinking water and make it acidic in the process.
The new Kent-QNet Water Purifier uses RO technology for water purification and has an additional feature that makes it unique. This unique new water purifier not only cleans your water through a multi-step filtration and purification process, it also helps maintain water at a pH level of 8+ giving you healthy, Alkaline water.
The multi-step purification system uses RO, Ultra Violet and Ultra Filtration technology which removes dissolved impurities such as chemicals, bacteria, viruses and salts, making the water 100% pure. The patented mineral retention method using a TDS Controller maintains the natural essential minerals in the purified water.
Some known benefits of drinking alkaline water include:
- Antioxidant properties to combat free radicals in the body
- Promotes better hydration
- Improves energy and metabolism
- Helps neutralise acid in the blood
- Improves bowel condition
- Boosts immunity system
- Increases blood oxygen levels
