Our body needs water to survive. Every organ and cell needs to stay hydrated in order for the body to function at its best. Our body is made up of 75% water. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work properly.
Dehydration can occur by not drinking enough water, through excessive sweating, diarrhea, vomiting or exercise. When this happens, it is common to feel faint, have a headache, and experience crampy muscles.
How much water do we need on a daily basis?
The answer is different for everyone. It depends on body weight. A good rule of thumb is half of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weighed 178 pounds you would multiply that by 2/3 and learn you should be drinking about 118 ounces of water every day.
To determine if you are dehydrated is by checking the color of your urine. If your urine is a dark yellow color then you are dehydrated; clear is an indication of over-hydration and can lead to hyponatremia (a dilution of the blood electrolytes). The safe urine color you are aiming for is light yellow for your self-awareness.
It can be challenging for some people to get enough water, so I recommend drinking regularly throughout the day. You could bring your water bottle with you anywhere you go. But for me, I drink my water with electrolyte and make sure you have more than one water bottle available for those longer indoor rides or treadmill runs.
Adding electrolyte to your water can enhance your bodies ability to utilize water.
Products like alkaline ionized water, which is said to balance the acids in your bloodstream to help your body metabolize nutrients more efficiently. Because alkaline water has a higher pH level than plain tap water.
In the general process of water electrolysis, hydrogen ions move toward the cathode, whereas hydroxide ions move toward the anode. Potassium hydroxide (KOH) is normally used in alkaline water electrolysis, thus avoiding the corrosion problems caused by acid electrolytes.
Alkaline Ionized Water raises your source water pH by ionizing or splitting the water molecule (H2O) resulting in the ions H+ (hydrogen with a positive electrical charge), and OH- (hydroxyl with a negative electrical charge), as well as ionic alkaline minerals.
This abundance of OH- ions increases the bicarbonate buffers in the blood, balancing the body and neutralizing and excreting acids and toxins. “Disease cannot flourish in an alkaline environment. Most city tap water and some bottled drinking water are acidic.”
Strong, fresh Alkaline Water contains an abundance of hydroxyl ions (OH-) which donate free electrons to unstable oxygen free radicals, resulting in stable oxygen molecules.
According to experts, drinking Alkaline Ionized Water on a regular basis will increase the amount of dissolved oxygen in the blood.
Stable oxygen (a nonreactive oxygen molecule with evenly paired electrons – no electrical charge) provides us with mental alertness and is invigorating and energizing to the body.
Why Alkaline Ionized Water?
Why should we be concerned about pH levels?
What is pH? pH stands for “Potential Hydrogen” it measures the acidity or alkalinity of a solution, and a pH of 7 is considered neutral, a pH above 7 is alkaline, below 7 is acidic. The human body contains both acids and bases. The body maintains the pH of blood between 7.35 and 9.5.
The tissues of the body have varied pH levels, some are alkaline, and others are acidic. If our body is too acidic it may result in acidosis. The body regulates the pH of blood in a steady range of 7.35 – 9.5, if blood pH gets too low, the body has three ways to raise it:
- Breath – Excess acidity can be exhaled in the form of carbon dioxide
- Urine – Acidic wastes are filtered by the kidneys
- Bone – The body takes calcium from the bones to neutralize acidity
Since most of the body is 75% water, the pH level has intense effects on our body, health, and disease. All regulatory mechanisms (including breathing, circulation, digestion, hormonal production) serve the purpose of balancing pH, by removing caustic metabolized acid residues from body tissues without damaging living cells.
Proper hydration is essential for good health. There is a lot of confusion about hydration and how much fluid we should be drinking. When the people talk about ‘water’ they are often talking about the nutrient water, which you can get from both the fluids we drink and the food we eat. This does, of course, include drinking water.
Ionized water has lower surface tension than regular water. Lower surface tension makes water easier to absorb via cellular osmosis. Why is alkaline ionized water beneficial to health? Alkaline ionized water has two very important differences from tap-water:
1) It provides pH-buffers to help the pH balance of your body, and
2) It contains natural, healing, antioxidants.
Benefits of Alkaline Ionized Water To Health
According to peer-reviewed scientific studies that have been performed in well-respected universities and hospitals around the world, drinking Alkaline Ionized Water can:
- Release excess body fat and stored toxins
- Normalize blood sugar and insulin
- Normalize blood pressure
- Support healthy colon function
- Resolve urinary tract infections
- Relieve asthma and chronic respiratory infections
- Stop abnormal gastrointestinal putrefaction
- Reduce the proliferation of candida, fungus, and undesirable microforms
- Reduce chronic pain
- Improve wound healing
So what is the solution?
I advise you to buy your water ionizer and choose the electric water ionizer with platinum coated titanium plates. There are three main types of water ionizer devices: electric water ionizer, hydrogen water machines, and non-electric filtering water ionizers.
From my experience, the alkaline water benefits with electric water ionizers are superior to non-electric water ionizers, but all three devices have their advantages.
Electric water ionizers and hydrogen machines are necessarily more expensive because to be safe and effective they must have pure titanium plates covered with pure, medical-grade platinum. Electric water ionizers are better and healthier because they will ionize all the healthy, alkaline minerals [such as calcium, magnesium, potassium] and non-electric water ionizers will only ionize magnesium. Ionizing the minerals make them more readily available to absorb into your cells.
All non-electric water ionizers are basically filters, not machines, and are cheaper to make. They filter the water and then add magnesium to the water in the presence of magnetized ceramics.
