Why Alkaline Water is best for a person health wise. For www.dietarysupplementnews.com
By Dr. Keith Kantor
One must first understand alkalinity and acidity to understand why we need alkaline water. Our bodies pH is normally between 7.35-7.45 for our bodies to work properly. Above a pH of 7 is alkaline and below 7 is acidic. Our body is very good at maintaining this pH with the systems it has in place.
The problem we have is we eat and drink too much acidic foods (sugar) and acidic liquids ( alcohol, sodas, and certain sports drinks). Too much acid causes acidosis, which causes inflammation. The CDC says that inflammation adversely affects up to 85% of all chronic diseases. So what we have to do is eat less acidic food and drink less acidic liquids to help our bodies.
Acid comes from the H+ ion. The H+ ion is weakly bound to many molecules and easily breaks off, in many cases forming H3O (Hydronium). This acid build up, even with the correct pH adversely affects our insulin mechanism, our body flora and many diseases like arthritis, cancer, IBS etc. through the inflammation it causes.
Alkaline water helps buffer the acids which helps reduce inflammation. You should drink 1/2 you body weight in ounces per day for good health. So if you weigh 120 pounds you should drink 60 ounces of alkaline water.
Unfortunately alkaline water only buffers (dilutes) the acid. What we really need to do is eliminate the acid not just buffer it. The best way to do this is with a hydroxide water that happens to be alkaline. Hydroxide water has lots of OH- ions in it. The OH- ions search for and bind to the H+ ions forming water which we eliminate from our body through urination. This is the safest and most effective way to eliminate inflammation and help the health of our body. Through my research the best, purest hydroxide water I found is AQUA OH-!. It is all natural and made from limestone. Also, it comes as a concentrate where one quart of concentrate makes 32 diluted quarts. Because it is a concentrate it is 250%+ less expensive than other alkaline waters and works better (eliminating acid instead of just buffering it). It can be found at www.getaquaoh.com.
