You probably have heard about the benefits of minerals in alkaline water and the benefits of alkaline water . However, you don’t have to look too far to read about negative publicity relating to alkaline water .
The negative publicity claims that your stomach fluids are acidic and you need the acidity to digest the food. Others argue, that the amount of minerals in water can hardly make an impact on the overall pH of your body. The reality is that detractors of alkaline water often have a limited understanding of chemistry and the physiology of the human body. Whether the stomach content is acidic, does not change the fact that the pH balance of most of the body is alkaline. The pH of Blood for instance when in the healthy range should be between 7.35 and 7.45. There is plenty of research showing the link between acidic pH and cancer. Cancer thrives in an acidic environment and cannot survive in an alkaline environment. Cancer cells make your body even more acidic as they produce lactic acid. So if you have cancer, your pH levels are low and your body is too acidic – See more at cancer fighting strategies.
A lot of food we eat today is acidic and that includes grains, dairy products, fish, and meats like bacon and turkey. All in all, the alkaline diet is a healthy alternative. Eating more fruits and vegetables, along with curbing your carb and dairy intake, may help balance pH levels within your body. Once it’s in a stable state, this can reduce daily complications and lower the possibility of greater, long-term risks.
There is no doubt that water can play a vital role in helping maintain a stable body pH. Alkaline water in particular containing minerals and elevated pH will help in maintaining stable pH levels in your body. the minerals are essential for your health and provide buffering capacity to neutralise acids. Water may appear to be a simple molecule ( H20)- but we are yet to learn all about the different forms of water and the secrets of the Hydronium Ion.
There are a range of alkaline water filters on the market and the alkaline filter cartridges can be retrofitted to most Reverse Osmosis Filters. These alkaline water filter cartridges come in all shapes and sizes and usually are connected up with simple but reliable push-in fittings. Some examples are listed below:
Includes far-infrared ceramic balls incl Tourmaline, Mai -Fan Ceramic Stone
Far-Infrared ceramic balls incl Tourmaline:
Tourmaline gemstone is a semi-precious mineral stone well known for its incredible ability to aid in the detoxification process of the human body. It is one of only a handful of minerals that have the ability to emit negative ions and far-infrared rays. Tourmaline is best known as one of the only minerals to naturally emit far infrared heat and ionisation. Tourmaline exerts a cleansing energy on our nervous system.
Mai-Fan Ceramic Stone:
This rare natural mineral stone, combines with water to generate indispensable minerals for the body, such as Calcium, Iron, Silicon, Magnesium and Aluninium, at the same time, revitalising the water, emiting FIR (far-infrared rays) to produce `living water’.
The Mai-Fan Stone also adjusts the pH value and by the process of Ion Exchange neturalises the acids and turns the water into alkaline water.
The filter also produces Hydrogen rich water. “Hydrogen-Rich Water” or hydrogenated water contains active hydrogen ions that act as powerful antioxidants in your body. The ions help eliminate oxygen free radicals that contribute to the development of illness and ultimately are responsible for the aging process. Our body takes in the H2 and converts it into hydrogen anions, H-. or commonly termed as active hydrogen. Active Hydrogen is a powerful anti-oxidant as it is able to remove the active oxygen in our body that is known to be the cause of many types of chronic diseases. Molecular hydrogen also has anti-inflammatory effect besides its antioxidant properties. Inflammation is a silent killer that caused many chronic diseases. Hydrogen has also been found to have an anti-tumor effect.
The KClean Alkaline Cartridge produces potent hydrogen rich antioxidant water and has been proven in laboratories to produce alkaline water and reduced chemical contamination.
The Alkaline filter changes the acidic RO water into a perfect Natural Alkaline Ion Water. The PurePro® Alkaline filter simply gives back minerals such as ionised calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium ion, which were removed by the reverse osmosis process.It produces alkaline water which helps your body maintain a healthy pH level. The PurePro® Alkaline mineral filter is very effective and produces a pH value of 8.00~9.50( depends on contact time)
- Produces perfectly pH-balanced alkaline water, helps minimise the fluctuations of your body’s pH.
- Converts acidic drinking water into alkali calcium ionised water.
- The natural calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium ions can be fully absorbed by the body.
- It is easily absorbed in the body because it has structurally smaller molecules which help the body absorb more water and hydrate more rapidly.
- This filter improves the qualities of clean water by adding minerals necessary for proper human development and health minerals, such as Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium and others readily found in many natural mineral waters.
All these alkaline filter cartridges and also water filters are available on our website
