Is bottled water the only way to quench your thirst? Buying a bottle of water is easy, but how about all the chemicals that end up in your body?
Water keeps our bodies hydrated and running. Our bodies are 70-80 percent water, meaning we need plenty of water to stay alive.
You can easily grab a bottle of water on the go and sip it on the way to work. But, chemicals found in bottled and tap water harm your health.
Alkaline water hydrates your body and provides a wide range of health benefits, including:
1. Antioxidant Properties
Alkaline water has strong antioxidant properties which fight free radicals and prevent premature aging and other health problems. Some experts believe that alkaline water can prevent cancer.
2. Cleansing Features
Alkaline water cleans organs, especially your colon. When your colon is loaded with toxic buildups, these become poisonous to your body and drinking alkaline water is the best way to flush them out of the body. Keep your colon clean and free of toxins to reduce the chances of getting stomach viruses, flu, cold, and other common diseases.
3. Physical Appearance
This water rejuvenates and hydrates skin. It aids in tissue restoring and improves skin's elasticity. Alkaline water stimulates weight loss because it helps the breaking down of fatty acids in your body.
Alkaline water provides many benefits, but buying it is pretty expensive. Make your own alkaline water instead of buying it. Here is a simple recipe, and all you have to do is follow these instructions:
- A pitcher full of filtered water
- 2 organic lemons
- 2 tbsp pink Himalayan salt
- Cut your lemons in quarters and add them to the pitcher full of water. Do not squeeze them!
- Add in 2 tablespoons of pink Himalayan salt.
- Leave the mixture overnight at room temperature.
- Your alkaline water is ready for use!
