This cancer-fighting alkaline water is so easy to make and has so many benefits for you health.
Water is definitely one of the most important things that we should intake everyday as our brains are made up of 70% water and our bodies of about 80%. Are you drinking enough of it? In fact, as we rise every morning, we are already two cups dehydrated.
One simple thing that will enhance your health for upcoming engagements for the day is to drink two cups of filtered alkaline water upon waking. This will give you more energy, help you concentrate, and fight cravings throughout the day. Starting the day with coffee or some other diuretic drinks like tea will make you further dehydrated than you are two cups already so you should start with water first then drink something else you like.
Do you drink water directly poured from your faucet? You might want to know what substances are incorporated to it before drinking tap water. It is generally a compound of chlorine, antibiotics, hormones, and other metals that will go straight to your system if taken.
The result of drinking impure water is a weakened immune system and other illnesses that arise when your immune system is defenseless. Contaminated water may also cause various illnesses like diarrhea.
Have you heard about the acid/alkaline balance in our body makes us healthy? When our bodies are in an excessive acidic state, many side effects like low energy, fatigue, digestive issues, weight gain, and even autoimmune diseases may occur. These, however, are preventable through drinking pure water and eating fresh organic vegetables and fruits that will provide a healthy acid/alkaline balance.
Excessive acidity is also linked to many degenerative diseases like arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and cancer. It is proven that cancer thrives in an acidic environment. Dr. Axe says: "High degrees of acidity force our bodies to rob minerals from the bones, cells, organs, and tissues. Cells end up lacking enough minerals to properly dispose of waste or oxygenate properly." To simplify, cells are less oxygenated when your body is more acidic thus preventing them to be detoxified. The build up of waste and other toxins in our cells cause the latter to become cancerous.
An alkaline filtration system is highly recommended for your everyday water intake but the system can be expensive, ranging from 1000 to 3000 USD. An alternative would be water shops that provide ready to drink alkaline water. The most ideal type of water, however, is spring water as it is saturated with minerals and guaranteed fresh from the earth.
