Why Drinking Alkaline Or Purified Water Is Important
Most of you will agree with me that the tap water that is unfiltered is hazardous to health because it contains things like chlorine, fluoride, parasites and other toxins. Which is Why Drinking Alkaline Or Purified Water Is Important for our well being. Doctors, health practitioners and health fanatics have been debating for a long time now about the downsides of drinking purified or distilled water. It is believed that drinking bottled purified and distilled water on a regular, daily basis is potentially dangerous.
When water is purified, it looses all the dissolved minerals such as magnesium. Magnesium deficiency can cause heart beat irregularities and high blood pressure. Cooking foods in distilled water pulls the minerals out of them and lowers their nutrient value. Purified water is essentially mineral-free and hence it aggressively absorbs impurities from the air such as carbon dioxide and making the water acidic. Hence, more the consumption of purified water, more acidic the body becomes. Many other metals and free radicals are also absorbed by the purified water.
The most toxic commercial beverages that we often consume in the form of various cola drinks are made from purified water. Studies have consistently shown that heavy consumers of soft drinks (with or without sugar) spill huge amounts of calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals into the urine. The more mineral loss, the greater the risk for osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, hypothyroidism, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and a long list of degenerative diseases generally associated with premature aging.The longer one drinks distilled water, the more likely the development of mineral deficiencies and an acid state.
On the other hand drinking alkaline water has numerous health benefits and it is the best possible drinking water. Benefit of alkaline water is that, it naturally flushes toxins and acidic waste from our body and is a powerful antioxidant. Alkaline water is the best source of detoxification and makes more oxygen available to the body. It balances the body’s PH level and hence it enables the body to better absorb and utilize nutrients, minerals and supplements.
Alkaline water builds a strong immune system to help fight diseases, illnesses, fatigue and obesity.
