About 1-1/2 years ago I started drinking bottled alkaline water on + off. Then I started using the water in my products. My philosophy is that @ least 90% of what we eat for skin health can be applied topically for healthy skin.
Finding out about the benefits of alkaline water started with my sister-friend Angelina Killane-Sims who mentioned that her husband drank alkaline water. This was the same time I found a malignant lump in my breast, had surgery + chemo. Part of my interest in alkaline water was what I heard, “that dis-ease cannot survive in an alkaline environment.” After having a malignancy, I started looking @ ways to protect my health. Sooo, on and off I looked @ water ionizers but didn’t take action until recently.
A few weeks ago I accepted a 21-day “fresh” alkaline water challenge. The difference in this challenge is that I was only drinking alkaline water poured freshly from the faucet as opposed to drinking water that has been bottled + sitting on a shelf for who knows how long. The difference in bottled vs. fresh water is like night + day.
Why Drink Alkaline Water?
Ionized, alkaline mineral water delivers nutrients to the cells; it hydrates the body better; it cleanses + detoxifies your system, contains natural anti-oxidants that neutralize free radicals and energizes.
10 reasons to drink alkaline water:
I’ll elaborate on the 10 reasons to drink alkaline water, along with the benefits of acidic water 1 @ a time over the next two months.
In the middle of the water challenge, I decided that getting a water ionizing filter was no longer an option . . . so, I determined that it was time to invest in an alkaline water filter.
What is a Water Ionizer?
Water ionizers work by using electromagnetism to change ordinary tap water into ionized alkaline water with acid-fighting alkalinity and antioxidant potential. Plain water is a mix of alkaline minerals and carbonate – dissolved CO2. A water ionizer separates the carbonate from tap water from the alkaline minerals. The alkaline minerals, and the acidic carbonate are discharged in a separate streams of water. By separating the alkaline elements in tap water from the acidic elements, a water ionizer enables you to get the benefit of the natural acid-fighting alkalinity the alkaline minerals in your water like calcium and magnesium. These alkaline minerals, once freed of the carbonate, gain antioxidant potential and acid fighting alkalinity.
After looking @ a few water ionizing filters, I made the decision to invest + better health for me + my girls. The winner is (drum roll, please):
The Life Ionizer M-13 UC
That’s it for now.
Helping to keep you hydrated, exfoliated + well moisturized!
