Alkaline Water and Your Health

WHY Water is Critical to Your Good Health

Your body is designed to be approx. 70% water. The most critical fluid in your body, your blood, is mostly water. Your muscles, skin, and vital organs all contain and need large amounts of water for optimal health. Water also transports oxygen to your cells, delivers nutrients, removes waste, and provides energy to the body.

Signs of Dehydration: Your body loses approx. 2.5 liters of water every day just through normal bodily functions. You lose water through urination, respiration, and perspiration. If you are physically active or athletic, you lose even more water. Although “thirst” is an obvious sign of dehydration, the TRUTH is your body is in need of water long before you feel thirsty.

Symptoms of mild dehydration include chronic pains in joints and muscles, lower back pain, headaches, and constipation. A strong odor to your urine, along with a yellow or amber color indicates that you are not getting enough water.

Why Alkaline Water is good for your Health

Alkalinity = Good Health!
“The cells of a healthy body are alkaline while the cells of a diseased body are acidic.”
Dr. Arthur Guyton (author of the “Textbook of Medical Physiology”)

Is Your Body Acidic?

Some of the symptoms associated with acidic conditions in the body include weight loss problems, insomnia, water retention, arthritis, migraine headaches, constipation, colds, flu, stomach ulcers, acid reflux and even cancer. Many health experts agree that an overly acidic body greatly diminishes the effectiveness of your immune system and usually leads to disease.

Acidic conditions in the body are caused by: junk food, proteins, carbohydrates, fats, sodas, coffee, sports drinks, alcohol, environmental toxins, and stress. Considering this long list of items that can lead to acidic challenges in our body, it becomes very clear why it is so important to drink an alkaline water or beverage like Xtreme X2O every day.

WHY pH balance is critical to your health

In order for the body to maintain optimal health, it needs to manage a very narrow pH range (slightly alkaline) – especially in the blood. In fact, the body will go to almost any length necessary to maintain your blood pH at 7.34 – 7.45 because anything outside that pH range could result in death.

The process of restoring pH balance in your body always includes proper diet and nutrition. This means eating alkalizing foods (vegetables, low sugar fruits, etc.) and getting proper nutritional supplementation. However, the foundation of healthy pH balance is in drinking plenty of alkaline water. And the easiest way to “supercharge” water and make it into alkaline water is by adding an Xtreme X2O sachet! One Xtreme X20 will treat 24 oz of water making it Alkaline Water with a PH around 9.9.

Measuring Acid/ Alkaline Balance: Scientists can determine if a liquid is alkaline or acidic by simply testing the “pH” of that liquid. “pH” means “potential hydrogen.” The pH scale range is from 0-14 with 7 being “neutral.” Readings below 7 are acidic and readings above 7 are alkaline. A one-point decrease on the pH scale represents that a liquid is 10 times more acidic. For example, a drop from 7.0 (neutral) to 2.0 means a liquid is 100,000 times more acidic to your body!

Organic Farming

When shopping I refer to buy food that was grown using organic farming methods and GMO free over conventional methods using GMO seeds, this is not always easy living in the US. We are one of the few first world countries that don’t require GMO labeling on food. Where I live in Maine we are trying to get a law past that would require such a label.

Wholefoods who supports organic farming is making a move to require all their suppliers disclose if products are GMO or not, it has put suppliers in a rush to change ingredients so they can keep that label off their products. Its funny that there is such a demand for such a easy solution to give people the choice of whether or not they eat GMO products. Seems no one in Washington seems to care or maybe the lobbyist are working against the will of the people. hmm money before health, that never happens around here.

Unfortunately this is only partly correct

Jeffery Smiths article on GMO codes

GMO codes are hypothetical

Those that run PLU-universe figured that someday some retailer might want to distinguish between a GMO and a non-GMO for price or inventory purposes. So they created a convention of 5 digits starting with an 8, just in case it catches on. But it hasn’t. No one uses that number 8 as far as we can tell. And why would they? Most Americans say they would avoid GMOs if they were labeled.

Some seed companies don’t even want gardeners to know which seed is genetically modified. One company that sells zucchini seeds outfitted with virus genes announced that they would refuse to sell seed packets in Vermont, since the state legislature requires GM seeds to be labeled.

One other thing I found out recently was just because food has been grown using organic Farming Methods doesn’t mean its 100% GMO free.

http://blogcritics.org/tastes/article/can-gmo-food-be-organic/

Until recently, I assumed GMO food could not be called “organic.” The U.S. and Canada both prohibit 100% certified organic food from containing GMO ingredients. However, contamination of the crops may cause organic feed to contain some percentage of GMO ingredients.

The lingzhi mushroom or reishi mushroom (traditional Chinese: 靈芝; pinyin: língzhī; Japanese: reishi; Vietnamese: linh chi; literally: “supernatural mushroom”) encompasses several fungal species of the genus Ganoderma, and most commonly refers to the closely related species, Ganoderma lucidum and Ganoderma tsugae.
