Water pH and Its Effect on Your Body
First things first, you already learned this at school, but to recap, the pH scale is a method of measuring how acidic or alkaline something is.
pH and Your Body
Your body is constantly making almost imperceptible tweaks and changes in order to precisely control the pH of your blood and fluids, and thus support a robust state of wellness. A healthy blood pH level is 7.40.
We can’t see acidity as such, so it’s easy to assume that your body is just getting on with its job of balancing your pH levels. However, excessive acidity is a very real problem, causing or contributing to serious health issues, including:
- Cardiovascular problems
- Diminished oxygen levels
- Weight gain
- Bladder/kidney conditions
America’s Acidic Diet
So yes, pH levels matter, a lot. But there’s a problem. The modern American diet is excessively acidic. Meat, soda, alcohol, fatty foods, caffeine, sweeteners and processed foods are all common culprits when it comes to acidifying the body. In order to – literally – redress the balance, we need to cut down on the acidic foods we eat and increase our intake of alkalizing ones, such as fresh fruit and vegetables.
Restore Balance with a Water Ionizer
One other way of helping your body to maintain a healthy, slightly alkaline environment, is to drink alkaline water. Bottled alkaline water is a start, but factor in the plastic bottle crisis and the cost of buying expensive specialist water on a regular basis, and it starts to look like a bad idea.
The very best way of drinking alkaline water is fresh from a water ionizer. There is no other way of harnessing the incredible potency and great-tasting freshness of ionized alkaline water. Choose a machine that produces thousands of bubbles of molecular hydrogen per glass, and you’ll feel the effects almost straight away.
Alkaline Water Goals
Drinking alkaline water from a water ionizer and cutting down on acidic foods can help to achieve and maintain that vital pH balance and supports good all-around short and long-term health goals.
Do you make a conscious effort to eat or drink alkaline foods? If you have an acidic diet, then you might feel excited about making some of these changes and feeling the benefits! What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
