5 Benefits Of Drinking Alkaline Water

Alkaline water is also known as ionized water. Alkaline means that it has a high pH. Its pH is higher than regular water. There are many benefits to drinking alkaline water. Here are five of the most important.

1. It makes your body less acidic.

Ionized water makes the pH of your body more alkaline and less acidic. When your body is too acidic, it can lead to acidosis. This is a condition that causes symptoms such as diarrhea, anxiety, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis. When the body's pH is too acidic, it leaches minerals from the bones to even out the pH. High acidity can also impair the immune system and make cells heal more slowly. Studies have shown that drinking alkaline water improves the pH balance in the body.

2. It helps prevent cancer.

An acidic pH makes cells repair themselves less efficiently. It is believed that the environment created by a low pH in the body can allow cancer to take hold. Drinking alkaline water balances the pH and reduces the risk of cancer. Studies have shown that tumors have a higher acidity than normal tissue.

3. It helps with stomach issues.

A study done in 2012 found that alkaline water can neutralize pepsin. Pepsin is one of the acids in the stomach that cause acid reflux. It has also been said that ionized water can improve the balance of good bacteria in the digestive tract. Proper pH balance can have a positive effect on the growth of good microorganisms and inhibit the growth of bad microorganisms.

4. It improves energy.

Alkaline water can help with the body's ability to repair tissue. This means that people recover from workouts more quickly when they drink alkaline water. Also, when alkaline water is mixed with electrolytes, it helps the body absorb the electrolytes faster. Electrolytes help keep the body hydrated and help muscles recover faster from exertion.

5. It improves fertility.

An acidic environment in the body leads to unbalanced digestive system flora. When microorganisms are out of balance in the intestines, it throws off the hormone balance of the body. Disruptive microorganisms like fungi, yeast, viruses or bacteria can deplete the enzymes that help balance hormone levels. Drinking alkaline water helps balance the pH of the digestive tract, which balances the good and bad microorganisms that grow there. This in turn balances hormone levels, which increases or normalizes fertility.

There are two types of alkaline water. There is naturally occurring alkaline water, which has minerals that create the high pH. The minerals get into this water as it runs over stones in nature. This is spring water that can be found sold in bottles. There is also alkaline water that is created in an ionizer. Ionizing water at home is the cheaper of the two options.

An alkaline water jug is the most affordable way to get alkaline water. It is less expensive than an ionizing machine. It is also more portable and can be taken on vacation. In addition, it is cheaper than buying bottled alkaline water at the store. It also creates less waste than bottled water. An alkaline water jug is easy to use. Just pour water in, and let the filter do its work. It is a great way to try alkaline water to see if works for you.
