What is acid waste and body acidity ?
Every living cell within our body creates waste products. The nutrients from our food are delivered to each cell and they burn with oxygen to provide energy for us to live. The burned nutrients are the waste products that affect body acidity. Whether you eat the best of foods or the worst, all foods generate waste products. Foods, when classified as good or bad, are based on the amount and quality of the acid waste products they produce.
Our body will discharge this waste through urine and perspiration. Basically, all waste products are acidic, that is the reason our skin and urine have a low pH level. The real problem is that our body does not get rid of 100% of the waste it produces. Our life style, such as lack of rest, types of foods we eat and our environment helps produce these waste products, but does not help us eliminate them. In the vast majority of Westerners, diets heavy in meat, fried foods, soft drinks, and sweets build up acid salts in the body, as does stress and exposure to environmental pollutants.
What happens to those non-disposed acid wastes? As they build up within our body, these waste products become solid wastes, such as cholesterol, fatty acid, kidney stones, etc. This accumulation of non-disposed acidic wastes is called acidosis. This condition accelerates the degeneration of cells, tissues, and the body as a whole. It accelerates the aging process. Drinking alkaline water makes it easier for the body to dispose of acid wastes. Just as the accumulation of wastes accelerates the aging process, the reduction of acid wastes retards the aging process. If consumed regularly, alkaline water reduces acid waste, allowing a natural health improvement.
You reduce an acid, by neutralizing it with a base (Alkaline). The stronger the acid, the stronger the base required to neutralize the acid. You require alkaline foods, minerals and water to help your body flush out and neutralize the acid wastes in your body.
When it comes to water there are two things that are important around how powerful an acid neutralizing substance it is..
- Alkalinity – Alkalinity is a measure of the capacity of water or any solution to neutralize or “buffer” acids.
- pH (Potential of Hydrogen)- pH represents the amount of Hydrogen ion in the water. More Hydrogen ion means more acidity and pH is lower. The pH scale is logarithmic, so every pH unit represents a ten-fold change in acidity or alkalinity. The scale goes from 0 to 14, with pH = 7.0 being neutral.
Our Alkaline Water Jug increases the Alkalinity of the water by as much as 75% over regular tap water so this is a really good acid neutralizing substance. It also increases the pH to between 9 and 9.5 which is 100 times more Alkaline than regular tap water. When the pH is higher it also increases the amount of Oxygen atoms available for the body to use.
Another benefit the jug has it that it produces Hydrogen Rich water which is an extremely effective antioxidant. This water has been proven to be effective in aiding the body to combat more than 63 oxidative stress related diseases like, Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, to name a few.
The combination of Hydrogen and Alkalinity is why the Designer Water Jug is not just another water filter.
