Part 4. The Role of pH and Healthy Living.
Hydrate with Acid pHreeä because
dehydration is more than a lack of electrolytes and water.
Although water functions differently than nutrients, it is the most significant nutrient, because it is essential for life. Unlike food, water is absorbed almost immediately. The body holds water inside (intracellular) and outside (extracellular) the cells. Water is the medium required for chemical reactivity, which is called ionization. This reactivity allows intra- and extracellular fluids to be balanced. Electrolytes enable the maintenance of the proper ratio of fluids in the body. Electrolyte molecules form two components: negatively charged acid forming anions and positively charged alkaline forming cations.
Water as a valuable oxygen source.
Most of the oxygen in the body comes from water. Water contains vital oxygen molecules. The consumption of carbonated beverages produces more carbon dioxide than oxygen. Boiled water is oxygen deficient and distilled water is dead water. Water is an essential source for providing the body with oxygen it needs and the ability to dissolve nutrients in the blood and body fluids. Enzymes, hormones and coenzymes dissolve in the fluids and then act on metabolites (amino acids, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals), which are then similarly dissolved. Water also acts as a solvent for body waste - urea, carbon dioxide and various toxins. The body of a newborn baby is approximately 80 to 85% water. Dehydration slowly occurs and dehydration rates increase as we age. Water accounts for only 70% of body weight by the time of middle age. This loss of water continues in all the tissues of the body, producing signs of age degeneration such as wrinkles.
The balance of acids and alkalines the body and the buffering systems determine the pH. The body requires a pH level of about 7.30 to 7.40 in the bloodstream to function. Unfortunately, modern lifestyles, environment and diet cause too many systems that arc acidic. The body utilizes soluble minerals and electrolytes to neutralize acids. The consumption of low pH foods cause an over acidic condition in the body. Since today's diet is more acidic than alkaline, the body utilizes essential electrolytes from the cells and organs to neutralize acid. As a result the body uses nutrients from the bones, cells and tissue to compensate for this lack of soluble minerals. This is a debilitating process over time and can cause nutritional deficiency and disease, as well as premature aging.
What is important about water is the acid and alkaline content. Acid pHreeä provides acid neutralizing action to assist the body manage the pH balance vital for good health. Acid pHreeä assists in encouraging the utilization of essential minerals like potassium, calcium, sodium and magnesium for improved nutritional well being. (Note: Acid pHreeä is manufactured in compliance with AWWA standards for drinking water.)
Overview of Health Mechanism of Acid pHreeä .
Give water energy and beverages enhanced
flavor without the acid.
Enhance absorption of nutrients and enhance essential minerals, such
as potassium, calcium, magnesium and sodium.
Promote oxygen intake and energize cells.
Assist the body in maintaining vital pH (Acid/Alkaline) balance.
Flush acidic waste and aid in the elimination of toxins to promote healthier cells.
Substitute for macrobiotic diet and ionized water to counteract high acid diets.
Counteract ingestion of some types of contaminates in water and food.
Inhibit and control acid stomach upset
and acid reflux due to over consumption of
acidic beverages and food.
Help keep the digestive tract clean and disease free.
