Benefits of Alkaline Mineral Water


You’ve probably heard the saying “you are what you eat”, describing the importance of providing our bodies with healthy food.

But, did you know that our bodies are made of over 60% water? It is equally as important to provide our bodies with healthy water, too.

The reason the earth can sustain life is because it has water. Nature provided us with sources of water all over the planet. Wherever there is life – plants, animals & humans – there is water. Unfortunately, a lot of the water that we have available to us today, in stores or from taps, looks NOTHING like what is was intended to by nature.

We all know by now that we shouldn’t be consuming processed foods… So what makes it “okay” to consume processed water?  Not all water is created equal, and water sourced to us through our taps or in stores is generally void of all of the amazing properties of natural, healthy water.

What makes water “healthy”? 

Healthy water contains many essentials minerals, and is naturally alkaline.

Our bodies work hard every moment to keep us alive by maintaining a pH level of 7.36 (which is just slightly basic). In order to do this, the blood draws from stores of healthy minerals such as calcium, phosphorous and magnesium in our body.  If our bodies do not have adequate stores of these minerals, the blood is forced to draw them from organs, glands, and tissues, leaving these important components deficient and risking their proper function.

Drinking water that is alkaline, and full of many important minerals, is extremely important for ensuring our bodies won’t have to work too hard to keep our pH balanced and for the overall health of our entire body.
