Dr. Otto Warburg in 1931 was given the Nobel Prize in Physiology and discovered the cause of cancer. He stated, “Cancer grows in oxygen deprived acidic tissue. Disease can not live in an alkaline body.”
There’s no question drinking water is crucial to your survival given that we are made up of about 60% water. A good rule of thumb is to drink half your body weight in ounces daily. A person weighing 1401bs should drink at least 70 ounces of water daily. One way to efficiently hydrate your body and keep it at a healthy pH level is to consume alkaline water.
WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER?
Human blood has a pH level of 7.4, which is slightly alkaline. The pH range goes from 0-14 with 1 being very acidic and 13 being very alkaline. Consuming a diet high in processed foods, saturated fats and sugars can cause acidity levels to rise and cause serious health problems such as different cancers, diabetes and Alzheimer’s to name a few.
Alkaline water is less acidic than regular tap water and it contains calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium and bicarbonate (antacid). All these agents help “buffer” acidity in the body. Keeping the body more alkaline (non-acidic) has been shown to reduce free radical damage to cells, which can help prevent disease (certain cancers and keep cells healthy longer.)
ALKALINE WATER IS BENEFICIAL TO ATHLETES
Alkaline water aids athletes by helping the body’s buffering capacity and allowing performance to remain high. Intense exercise causes muscles to kick off hydrogen ions, which raise acidity levels and then can reduce performance and increase fatigue. Endurance athletes in particular (long distance runners) use alkaline water to keep cardiovascular/respiratory stress at bay for maximum performance.
OTHER BENEFITS/ADVANTAGES TO CONSUMING ALKALINE WATER
Consuming alkaline can help prevent osteoporosis by preventing your body from taking precious minerals from bones in order to keep the body at a normal pH level. This is extremely important as we age and lose bone mass. It also aids weight-training athletes by keeping bones strong and preventing injury.
Alkaline water has also been shown to aid in gut health. Alkaline water possesses extra “disinfectant properties” protecting the GI tract from harmful microorganisms.
Other benefits that have been shown by drinking alkaline water in addition to better overall hydration are lower cholesterol, increased mental clarity, reduction in joint pain, protecting against certain cancers and slowing the aging process by protecting cells from free radical damage by acting as an antioxidant.
