Alkaline Water Filter
Benefits of Alkaline Water
Next to Oxygen, Clean Non-Toxic Drinking Water is our most precious resource on earth. Without it (or beverages or foods containing it) we would only last a few days. Our body, just like out planet, is composed of 75-80% water. All of our organs, including our skin and brain need water to function properly. So, exactly what is the difference between Acidic Water, Neutral pH Water and Alkaline Water?
Each type of water has it’s own ideal Benefits and Usages. For instance Acidic Water is not a bad type of water, if you use it for it’s intended benefits. Same with Neutral pH and Alkaline Water. Acidic Water, is best for detoxing your body as it is an empty water (see: Distilled Water). It has little or no minerals, so when you drink acidic water, your body will try and make it neutral pH, it’s normal state, by adding minerals where it can find them in your body, usually by taking calcium and magnesium from your bones and tissues.
That’s why you should use it occasionally unless you are trying to pull junk calcium (indigestible) out of your body, organs and joints. The rest of the time you should drink neutral pH or Alkaline Water. Neutral water is good for normal digestion of foods and if you are eating a properly balanced diet. The problem is that almost 90% of the foods we eat, and beverages we drink are highly acidic. So, there is why Alkaline Water can step in and bring an acidic body back to a normal, well hydrated and healthy state.
How to Use Alkaline Water
Alkaline Water (between 8.5 pH and 10.5 pH) has the necessary minerals your body needs to repair itself, and will make it all the way into your blood cells where it will oxygenate them and your whole body. That’s one of the primary reasons why Alkaline Water prevents, and reverses many chronic conditions, infections and disease. Alkaline water has a mild cleansing action to it, so it helps gently remove sticky deposits in your body, and is lethal to cancer cells.
I personally use Alkaline Water daily! I am a natural bodybuilder, and for anyone exercising or performing athletic sports, then it will help you hydrate much better than any other beverage! It will also help you workout longer (reduces Lactic Acid buildup), perform better (more electrical charge), and it just plain tastes better! Acidic water has a “tinny” or metallic taste to it.
If there is one thing you can do to improve your health right now, it’s to start drinking Alkalized Water regularly. I carry my own water with me in a portable container, and take it to restaurants, parties and friends houses, as most will not have the same quality water. And it makes such a big difference that I hardly ever leave home without it! Having a portable alkaline water filter can make this an easy thing to do.
Best Alkaline Water Filter
The best alkaline water filter is actually an Alkaline Water Ionizer, but you can get less expensive portable ones if it is easiest on your budget right now. Having your own portable alkaline water filter is like having a natural healing remedy always at your side.
It can help when you may have excess stomach acid or an upset stomach (think baking soda), or eating too many carbohydrates (carbs need an alkaline digestion, proteins need acidic) at one sitting. 30 grams of carbs per sitting is ideal unless you’re carbohydrate loading as an athlete. More than that you raise your insulin response.
There are many types of Portable Alkaline Filters, and Purifiers that can be ideal for any situation. Here are the most common types of Alkaline Filters:
- Water Ionizer (makes highly alkaline water, and also highly acidic for cleaning)
- Countertop Filters, (like a PureEffect Fluoride removing Alkaline Filter)
- Pitcher Water Filters, (just fill with tap water and out comes Alkaline Water)
- Bottle Water Filters (makes alkaline water on the go)
Choose the one that is right for your need. I personally use an Alkaline Water Ionizer, and refill my own BPA free bottle, and there is no waste, no environmental trash or concerns using oil to truck water into and out of town. And it’s all in my control, if stores run out of purified water, I can make my own!
