Statistics have shown that Japanese people have the longest lifespan than any other nation. This is why many people have shown such high interest in alkaline water. Alkaline water is believed to help flush toxins out, enhance the metabolism and helps kill cancer cells.
First off, our body consists of 80% water, and in order to maintain perfect health, our pH levels must be alkaline. In other words, our pH value must be over 7, as everything below it is considered to be acidic.
Unhealthy diets and foods make our body acidic. The biggest contributors to an acidic body are coffee, alcohol, refined sugar, salt, processed food, greasy food and a lack of vitamins and minerals. This results in a weak immune system, regular headaches, abdominal pain and other health conditions.
It has been known for a fact that while cancer cells can thrive in an acidic body, they cannot survive in an alkaline environment, which is why we must balance our pH levels. This is easily done with alkaline water, as it can remove the acidic remains without affecting the healthy cells. On the other hand, it helps hydrate the body and tissues and helps maintain proper health and body function.
Down below is a recipe to prepare homemade alkaline water.
Ingredients you will need:
- 2 liters of Purified Water
- 1 organic Lemon (sliced)
- 1 tsp. of Himalayan salt
Take a clean jar, and pour the 2 liters of water in it. Place the slices of a lemon inside, add the salt, and mix everything together well with a spoon. Once done, close the jar and let it sit overnight at room temperature. In the morning, consume three glasses of this mixture on an empty stomach.
Starting from that day, your body will slowly balance out the pH levels and hydrate your system.
