The number one thing your body is responsible for in maintaining optimal health is body temperature. Too hot and you get a fever, too cold and you get hypothermia.
The number two thing your body is responsible for in maintaining optimal health is your blood pH. Your blood is responsible, for among other things, transporting nutrients, vitamins, minerals, oxygen, and water to your cells, and responsible for taking cell by-product wastes from your cells and organs for evacuation through your skin, urine, and feces.
In a process beyond the scope of this website known as acid-base homeostasis, our blood’s pH is typically maintained between 7.32 and 7.42 by many complex bodily systems.
According to research, a slightly alkaline blood pH = 7.365 to 7.45 is sufficient to prevent disease in your body.
Although our body’s are incredible at maintaining blood pH through a variety of biological processes, we can logically accept that our body’s ability to maintain an ideal blood pH is affected by what we eat and drink.
Taking a common sense approach, if you consume foods and beverages that are acid containing or acid producing in your body, your body will have to work harder to neutralize those acids, compared to if you consume foods and beverages that are alkaline containing or alkaline producing in your body.
Since your body is made up of 45-75% water, we believe the easiest way to help your body regulate its blood pH is through the water you consume.
If you consume water with a pH > greater than 7.0, known as alkaline water, then you are helping your body maintain its blood pH close to or at the ideal alkaline blood pH = 7.365 mentioned above.
In our opinion, the easiest way to do this is by consuming freshly produced ionized alkaline water with a pH = 8.0 – 9.5 on a regular basis.
Wang Yu-Lian, published a study titled Preliminary Observation on Changes of Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, and Blood Lipids After Using Alkaline Ionized Drinking Water in the Shanghai Journal of Preventive Medicine.
The purpose of the study was to observe changes in blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood lipids in the participants after consuming ionized alkaline water for 3 and 6 months.
The results showed that the levels of all three markers, blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood lipids, all decreased significantly at 3 and 6 month intervals.
To paraphrase, the author concluded that ionized alkaline water may be used as an accessory therapeutic method for treating blood pressure, blood sugar levels, and blood lipid levels.
