‘Alkaline Water Works’ is not a new budge in the industry, its rather making rounds from years rather a few decades but still, the message is unheard by many and unclear to a lot who have heard about it but are not ready to rely on its authenticity and tenacity.
And, there is nothing wrong in it, to not to accept something unless one is sure about how it works, what are the side effects, and is it worth to go for it?
Yes, the questions are many, and so are the answers, but are they authentic is the real question evolving in our minds. Here, we will try to clear the cobwebs and take out the thought process from the never-ending labyrinths, where it has landed in our quest to search but have yet to reach the right answer that could pacify our rational mind, logical thoughts, and pragmatic behaviour.
What is alkaline all about?
Before embarking on a thoughtful journey, let us first understand the crux we are going to hover around.
Anything present in our nature could be in three forms when measured on a pH scale of 1 to 14. It could be either neutral with a pH scale of 7, or could be acidic in case it has a pH of less than 7, or it could be alkaline (what we are trying to understand here) in case it has a pH of more than 7.
So, anything with a pH from 7 to 13 is alkaline. It will remain as the main subject of our concern throughout this blog.
What does our body need?
Our body tends to remain alkaline to efficiently run all body systems from blood circulation to metabolism and from digestion to excretion.
It implies that our body has to maintain the alkalinity inside it, irrespective of what we eat or drink. Or in other words, we can understand it in simplicity that if we eat food or drink water that is alkaline, our body can readily act on it and can smoothly run our body systems.
But on the contrary, if we are consuming acidic food or drinks, then to maintain the equilibrium of the system and to keep the balance intact, our body has to draw alkalinity from somewhere else in our body. Otherwise, it would be difficult for it to run the system correctly and would result in several sorts of illness depending upon the area from where it is trying to tap the alkalinity to maintain the balance.
So, by now, it is clear that it is the alkalinity that is desired by our body for its proper functioning.
What if we do not eat alkaline food?
As mentioned above, if we are not consuming the right food as per the body’s requirement our body would be working on it and digesting it but with a surcharge on rest of our system without our knowledge, unless the ill-effects, the symptoms and the side-effects become enormous enough to start getting reflecting by physical or external means.
Our body to retains its alkaline percentage will overwork on the acidic or non-alkaline food to digest it and to produce energy to keep our system running and to keep us alive.
To retain alkalinity, it draws alkalinity from our bones, muscles and other tissues. It means that to create energy and build our muscles and bones; it is damaging already stored energy in our body and then creating a small percentage of the energy of what it had consumed besides making our system vulnerable to numerous diseases as this process intensively reduces our immunity.
So, if we are consuming non-alkaline food, it is instead doing more of harm rather than any good to us.
How drinking alkaline water helps us in maintaining our body systems?
Alkaline water provides our body with the necessary alkalinity that it direly needs to maintain its alkaline level and run our bodily systems smoothly.
It prevents the body from drawing necessary alkalinity from our bones, muscles and tissues and thus prevent it from degrading our system. It helps in building the body even if we are consuming food that is non-alkaline, as all foods are not alkaline, and to survive our body do needs acidic foods also, but in limited percentage and that too without tilting the alkaline balance in our body.
So, far so good.
There is another angle of viewing it; ORP, commonly known as Oxidation Reduction Potential.
The higher level of alkalinity in our body leads to antioxidant effects, which combats the impurities and other stored toxins in our body at the cellular level and works hard in flushing them out.
So, the billion-dollar question here is, are all alkaline water creates the same antioxidant effects?
No, all alkaline water does not create the same antioxidant effects, and this is precise, what differentiates the different type of alkaline water available around us from the Chanson Alkaline water.
How one can differentiate between the alkaline waters?
The water, which is ionized results in alkaline water with antioxidant effects.
The antioxidant of alkaline water can be measured in terms of ORP, the Oxidation Reduction Potential, by using an ORP sensor and meter.
What is Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)?
The ORP is the capacity of any water to either release or gains electrons, which leads to the oxidization of the material surrounding it.
How ORP works?
Water with high negative ORP has a high propensity of forming bonds with the excess positively charged ions available in its nearby surroundings, as it has a good number of negatively charged ions available with it.
The negative ions on combining with the surrounding positive ions (H+ or acid content) neutralize these positive ions and thus flush them out from our system.
Thus, more the negative ORP more is the ability to save our body from these positive ions or the free radicals present in our system, which in turn otherwise break our cells, to draw an extra electron from them and neutralize them to become stable. This extra electron is drawn from either our bones, muscles or tissues and this process is commonly known as oxidization.
This oxidization, could result in deadly diseases as deadly as even cancer, genetic disorders, and many others. in addition to ageing turning one old with a weakened body, reduced immunity, sagged and wrinkled skin, and loose muscles besides early premature death.
How is this water otherwise different than our regular tap water?
As we know, the water molecules come in clusters, and it is the size of these clusters that makes similar looking water different from each other. It is something which cannot be make out by just viewing it.
The tap water comes in large clusters as big as comprising of 10 to 13 molecules per cluster. During ionization, these large water clusters are broken down to micro clusters, which comprises of 5 to 6 molecules per cluster only, and it is here, where all the difference lies.
The smaller the cluster, the higher is its antioxidant property and higher is its hydration properties owing to its higher solubility that makes it easily permeable to our cellular system.
You must have observed, that many times it so happens that even after drinking several glasses of water we do not feel satisfied, whereas sometimes even a single glass of water is good enough to quench our thirst and made us feel jubilant, energized and vibrant.
The difference is just in ORP, where the water with negative ORP is better observed by our cellular system to provide us, so desired immediate relief in comparison to the regular tap water.
Conclusion: Antioxidant alkaline water is the elixir of life in the type of world we are living nowadays. It is not possible to stay away from the acidic foods, like pizzas, burgers, cold drinks, meat and much more to count here, which are in abundance all around and are for sure, a sumptuous treat for our taste buds.
So, the wisdom lies in combating this acidic effect by drinking antioxidant alkaline water and stay healthy and fit besides being wealthy and wise, as it drastically saves our money by ruthlessly slashing on our doctor’s visit and medical expenses.
