Alkaline Water super-hydrates the body
Water molecules come in clusters rather than single molecules. Tap water, distributed under pressure has large clusters of 15-20 molecules. The ionization process breaks the electrical bonding of water molecules and restructures the water down to about 4-6 molecules per cluster. This smaller cluster size means that the water becomes better absorbed into our body cells, thereby
– providing superior hydration for the body, and
– help dissolve and flush out acidic solid waste and toxins that have accumulated in the body.
The importance of good hydration
Since our bodies are made up of 60% water, the quality and quantity of water we consume will have a significant impact on our overall state of health. Every healing and life-giving process that happens in our body happens through water!
And yet, many people do not hydrate themselves enough or choose to drink coffee, tea, fruit juices, soft drinks, power drinks, and alcohol instead of water. The fact is that these beverages contain acid-forming substances which reduce our ability to absorb and retain water. In fact, in the case of alcohol and caffeinated drinks, kidneys get stimulated to produce more urine, causing further water-loss.
Water is, without doubt, THE most important nutrient available to us, yet it is also the most frequently overlooked. Remember, a person can only survive a few days without water. Indeed, scientists rank water second only to oxygen as essential for life.
Approximately 60% of our total body weight and 80% of our brain is made up of water. Water is essential in all bodily functions. It is the main component of all the blood that travels through your body – carrying oxygen to your cells, muscles, and organs. Water is a universal medium for biochemical reactions, joint lubrication, nutrient delivery, waste disposal, heat dispersion, and temperature regulation.
And yet, many people are so dehydrated that they become sick. In his book, Your Body’s Many Cries for Water, Dr. F. Batmanghelidj reports that many diseases get worse by chronic dehydration. Thus, drinking sufficient amounts of water (our most important nutrient) can resolve many of these health concerns.
When we don’t drink enough water,
– our bodily processes slow down,
– electrolytes and other nutrients are not transported correctly,
– cell function reduces,
– heat-loss becomes difficult, and
– waste products and toxins are not efficiently eliminated through the kidneys, thus building up in our body over time.
