I believe the best water to drink to maximize your health is ionized alkaline water. On a pH scale from 3.0 to 10, ionized alkaline water is between 9.0 and 10. Most commercial bottled water is in the 5.0pH range; New York tap water is around 7.0 the higher the pH value in your drinking water the better it is for your health.
New York City has some of the best tap water in the country but the many chemicals used to make it safe has taken away much of its natural health value. Many of the chemicals used in our water system have been found to be harmful and toxic; chlorine is one of those controversial chemicals. There is a strong movement currently trying to get New York to reduce or eliminate the use of chlorine in the treatment of the cities tap water due to research showing harmful health reactions to chlorine treated water.
Ionized water machines will filter out chemicals and toxins in regular tap water transforming normal tap water into healthy ionized alkaline water with a point 9.0 or better pH value. The best machines will produce the highest pH value of 10 in the ionized alkaline water that they transform from tap water. The reason why the high pH value is so important in preserving health is its ability to reduce the acidity in the body. Excess acids in the body will attack and destroy healthy body tissue, the body protects itself from this by creating fat cells.
Alkaline water can neutralize the acidity of the body and the high pH value in alkaline water will reduce the bodies need to produce fat and cholesterol to protect itself from harmful acids. Most people who drink and cook with ionized alkaline water will experience weight loss another benefit. When detoxing the use of alkaline water can address the toxic effects of mercury and other harmful metals found in the body due to the air that we breathe and our diet.
As we grow older stress caused by the aging process can increase the acidity in our body one of the ways our immune system defends itself is to take calcium from our bones to develop an alkaline buffer to naturalize the acidity. Once the calcium in our bones becomes depleted osteoporosis will develop.
Osteoporosis is a silent disease because bone damage can occur without outward signs or symptoms until something brakes. There is a great deal of research that shows drinking alkaline water can reduce bone loss and become a useful tool in addressing osteoporosis.
My family has used water ionizers for years we currently use the Ionic Oasis Water Ionizer at our Ki wellness center. A good water ionizer in an investment in your health and in time you will find it more cost effective to make your own drinking water. for additional information on this dialog send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
