What is alkaline water?
Alkalinity and acidity are measured on the pH scale, which is a scale from 0-14 that measures the concentration of hydrogen ions in compounds from batteries to food. Neutral is measured at 7.0, while acids are below 7.0 and alkaline compounds (or bases) are greater than 7.0. Alkaline water is water that measures anywhere above a 7.0 on the pH scale.
Symptoms Of Acidic Body
-Muscle pain or cramps after walking short distances
-Easily running out of breath
-Often feeling like you can’t get enough air
Importance of Alkalinity
We have known from century that food can determine our overall pH levels. Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany 1931 Nobel Prize winner discovering that up to 95% of all cancers have acidic environment as the cause behind them. He also showed that cancers cannot thrive in an alkaline environment where the pH level is 7.36 or more.
He claimed almost a century ago that acidosis (excess acidity) is not only connected to development of cancer, it could also cause other diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and almost all other chronic diseases which we suffer from nowadays.
