Unhealthy 'Westernised' diet, lifestyles is causing sharp rise of Cancer.
Alkaline water is water with a pH of greater than 7. The amount of hydrogen mixed in with the water is known Potential Hydrogen (pH). The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14; A pH of 7 is neutral, meaning the water is neither acidic nor alkaline. A pH of 7 through 14 indicates the water is alkaline, and a pH of 0 through 7 indicates the water is acidic. Water with a high pH has acid-fighting alkalinity - the ability to neutralize acidity, as well as add beneficial antioxidant potential.
Alkaline water gets it’s beneficial alkalinity from calcium, magnesium and potassium which appear as mineral hydrates. Hydrate minerals are alkaline minerals that are combined with an antioxidant hydroxyl ion.
Fact: Hard water can also be alkaline if it has a pH of greater than 7. But hard water doesn’t have the same acid fighting ability, alkaline mineral hydrates, or it’s antioxidant potential.
Doctor Plus R.O. treats your tap water and makes it alkaline water - by changing the composition of the minerals in your water. Plain tap water is a mixture of water, minerals, and bicarbonate - dissolved carbon dioxide, which is acidic. The acidic bicarbonate in tap water robs the alkaline minerals of their acid-neutralizing ability.
Mineral hydroxides are very alkaline, and they readily neutralize the harmful acids like the ones our bodies produce. The mineral hydroxides made by a water ionizer - calcium hydroxide and magnesium hydroxide are recognized by the FDA for their contribution to human nutrition (source: FDA Generally Recognized as Safe - foods database).
Fact: Clinical testing shows that alkaline water can raise blood pH if you suffer from metabolic acidosis - a harmful condition where the body is temporarily acidic. In one study, the blood pH of men in the study that had metabolic acidosis was raised by 40 - 70%!
What’s the harm in a little soda? If you drink one 8 ounce glass of soda per day, it will take 18 years off your life! Why is soda so harmful? One reason is that it has a pH of about 2, which is 100,000% more acidic than a neutral pH of 7! Soda damages the telomeres - protein caps over the ends of your DNA that protect it from oxidative damage. As soda eats away at those caps, your DNA is exposed to oxidative damage which accelerates aging and the development of disease.
Another difference between plain water and Alkaline water made by theDoctor Plus Alkaline Purifiers has antioxidant potential. Your body is constantly under attack from oxidants - free radicals and Reactive Oxygen Species. In your body, oxidants attack and destroy DNA and tissues, harm which science shows can accelerate aging. Research shows that drinking antioxidant alkaline water spares the body’s own antioxidants, so the body’s age-fighting antioxidant system can work more effectively. Plain water can actually have the opposite effect - it can act as an oxidant.
