The Health Benefits of Alkaline Water

Updated on July 1, 2012

There are a lot of drinks available in the market like sodas, energy drinks, various fruit juices, teas and the list goes on, but what do you think is the best for your health?

Not just a plain and simple bottled water, alkaline water can be the best available. Health enthusiasts favor alkaline water because it contains useful antioxidants. Water ionizers converts normal tap water into alkaline water and into an acidic ionized water by virtue of the electrolysis process. The hydroxyl ions are then formed in the alkaline ionized water.

These hydroxyl ions searches for and counteracts free radicals to help the body thwart cancer. Free radicals can wreak havoc on cells and may pave the way for disease and/or premature aging. When the hydroxyl ions reduce the effect of the harmful free radicals, and outcome would be a body that is loaded with oxygen and energy.

Moreover, drinking alkaline water also aids in balancing the body’s pH level. Keep in mind that the body that is acidic is more likely to acquire diseases. Alkaline water can also act a cut above hydrator and at the same time a potent detoxifier. One of the chief causes of disease is the chronic cellular dehydration, a situation which makes the cells of the body in the recurring state of weakness.

      I am blessed to be able to fill up my 1 gallon containers with alkaline water for the equivalent of 15c!

      We have machines in the streets here that sell it!

      Just this weekend I cleaned out the cupboard and found a bottle of unopened liquid oxygen. Apparently it does the same thing, which is to purify the water.
