Alkaline Water – what is that?
The scale of pH, or potential hydrogen, ranges from zero to fourteen, so 7 is the neutral middle. Therefore, if the substance’s pH is less than 7, it is acid. On the other hand, if the pH is higher than 7, the substance is alkaline.
Your Tap water is generally a mixture of chlorine, anti-biotics, hormones and other metals that will go straight into your system. Impure water can cause a weakened immune system and an array of other illnesses that occur when the immune system is vulnerable.
Many time our bodies become too acidic, we feel low energy, fatigue, digestive issues, weight gain and other side effects that are completely avoidable just by drinking pure water and eating fresh organic vegetables with a healthy acid/alkaline balance.
Alkalinity importance to our body
In 1931, Nobel Prize winner – Dr. Otto Warburg discovered that about 95% of all cancers thrive under an acidic environment. Dr. Warburg showed that cancer could not excel in an alkaline environment in which the pH level is 7.36 or above.
He claimed almost a century ago that acidosis (excess acidity) is not only connected to development of cancer, it could also cause other diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and almost all other chronic diseases which we suffer from nowadays.
