There are a lot of positive health claims currently being made about alkaline water. Purportedly, alkaline water can help enhance your health and wellness journey by balancing out your body’s pH levels and reducing the effects of oxidization. It also claims to be an excellent antioxidant and helps you stay better hydrated than regular tap water.
Whether you lead a healthy, active, or fairly sedentary lifestyle, alkaline water has a plethora of health benefits that can help improve your overall well-being. At Georgian Water and Air (GWA), we provide state-of-the-art alkaline water filters for the home that can transform regular tap water into highly beneficial alkaline water.
What Is Alkaline Water?
pH measures the acidity levels of various substances—in this case, water. The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14 with the former indicating high acidity and the latter indicating alkalinity. Regular tap water is usually measured at 7 on the pH scale, making it neutral. Alkaline water, on the other hand, measures at around 8 or 9. It also consists of alkaline minerals and what’s known as negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). ORP is water’s ability to neutralize acidity levels in the body and regulate antioxidant levels. Negative ORP values are higher in antioxidant properties and can have amazing health benefits.
For this reason, many consumers think it’s worth having an alkaline water filter system directly in their homes. At GWA, we make installation and usage easy. You can have your very own alkaline water purifier connected directly to your kitchen faucet for convenient access to clean and healthy ionized drinking water at all times.
What Are the Benefits of Drinking Alkaline Water?
Drinking 7 to 8 glasses of alkaline water per day has a lot of potential health benefits. But it’s important to slowly and methodically transition into this way of life to prevent a potential adverse initial reaction. If you don’t typically drink alkaline water, start by slowly incorporating it into your system so that your body can slowly get used to it. Since alkaline water neutralizes the acids in your stomach, avoid drinking it with food. Drink one glass about half an hour before each meal and 1.5 hours after.
Here are the benefits of replacing regular drinking water with alkaline water:
- Increased energy levels
- Slows signs of aging
- Improved digestion
- Faster metabolism
- Reduces bone loss
