What Difference Does It Make What Kind Of Water We Drink?
In a world where we can get all kinds of information instantaneously, it is often confusing and overwhelming to discern the truth about what really matters. This is no less true regarding what makes for truly healthful, safe drinking and bathing water. Pollution is everywhere in our environment. SMOG, chemical runoff, outdoor allergens, and more threaten your and your family’s health. When it comes to toxic contaminants, the water you are drinking may be the worst offender of all.
First of all, we may not be drinking enough water daily. Chronic dehydration is linked to many diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia. The human body is 70 to 90 percent water depending upon the organ. It is recommended that each person drink daily at least one-half of their body weight (in pounds) as the number of ounces of water. For example, a person who weighs 208 pounds should drink at least 104 ounces, which equals 13 (8 oz.) cups or 6 ½ pints per day.
For drinking and bathing water to be healthful, it needs to:
- be free from contaminants and pollutants (including chlorine)
- be alkaline (above pH 7.0 and below pH 9.0 for most individuals)
- have the right combination of minerals (calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, etc.)
- contain minerals that are easily recognized and utilized by the cells of humans and animals (i.e., be bioavailable).
- have the chains of water molecules broken up for easy absorption and hydration. (The molecular clusters of water carry more oxygen when they are hexagonal in shape. This is achieved through proper magnetization.)
- and to be oxygenated.
