“After months of searching I finally went for it. & I am glad I did. Water tastes great and I really do feel a difference!”
The usefulness of water in our day-to-day life can never be underestimated. The WHO recommends that every individual should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. Until recently, only the quantity mattered, but newer research has shown that the kind of water you drink makes a difference to your quality of life too.
Pure safe drinking water is a necessity for all and America is one of the countries where tap water is safe to drink. Therefore, it is shocking to know that Americans spend more than $21 billion on bottled water and an equally big chunk is investing in water filters.
Despite the water being safe, the chances of contamination are high and the growing awareness on water’s role on one’s health has prompted a significant number of people to turn to home filtration systems.
There are several filtration techniques that you can use to make your drinking water safe and palatable. But if you want your drinking water to do more for your health besides hydration you can think of investing in an ionizer to convert tap water to alkaline water.
The latest water treatment system in the market today is the water ionizer which converts your regular tap water to alkaline water through a process called electrolysis. Proponents of alkaline water claim that the water is rich in antioxidants (negative ions that react with free radicals) and hence has several benefits like anti-aging, maintaining bone health and making you more energetic.
Dr. Hidemitsu Hayashi M.D. Heart Surgeon, Director of the Water Institute of Japan, states that the best source of antioxidants is ionized water.
According to IFT Member Claudia Fajardo-Lira, PhD, Professor of Food Science and Nutrition at California State University, antioxidants are those compounds which occur naturally in vegetables and fruits and which fight with freeradicals in the body to prevent several diseases and aging processes.
Even Ben Johnson M.D. Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.), who was featured on the bestselling DVD “the Secret,” believes that antioxidants prevent aging which is a result of the constant oxidation taking place in the body. He states that alkaline water rich in antioxidants attacks the two main culprits of aging and disease, namely pH and free radicals.
Expert opinion doesn’t stop here, in fact a study published in The Journal of the International Society of Sports Medicine, states that individuals who drank alkaline water showed better hydration when compared with those who drank only tap water.
The health benefits of alkaline water are many which include curing GERD, slowing down premature aging (as a result of free radicals), energizing the body while also playing a significant role in treating serious diseases like cancer, higher blood pressure and diabetes.
Dr. Robert Atkins,author of “The Atkins Diet,” states that most often the cells in our bodies are acidic and prevent the body from neutralizing toxins; this behavior of cells leading to the production of free radicals which in turn damage cells and lead to serious diseases like cancer.
Another study in 2012 claimed that water with a pH of 8.8 neutralized the hydrochloric acid in the stomach and thus played a huge role in GERD treatment.
A Montana State University professor Dan Heil and his team of students found that individuals who drank alkaline water with minerals were better hydrated than those who drank water without mineral content.
According to Mayo clinic nutritionist Katherine Zeratsky there have been studies that claim that alkaline water does in deed slow down bone loss. She further claims that further research and investigation is needed to prove the claims vociferously made by alkaline water proponents on its many benefits.
The jury is still out on the efficacy of alkaline water though it is very clearly evident that alkaline water does lead to better hydration and improves the fluid reserves in your body. It has also been found to be beneficial in treating acidity, even though temporarily.Therefore, it seems a safe bet to invest one time in a water ionizer than spend several hundred dollars on bottled water each year.
