The sought after magical water is said to return anyone who drinks or bathes within it, back to their youth. These tales of sacred and restorative water go all the way back to the 5th century B.C.. Unfortunately, this proverbial fountain has never been found. Or has it?
Water that can reduce the signs of aging, reduce hair loss, help regulate blood sugar and more, can it be true?
It is, but not under the mythical name we've all come to know. This magical water has a more modern term that some people may not realize is the 21st century's version of it's predecessor, Alkaline Water.
For example, a 2012 study has shown that drinking water with a pH of 8.8 can help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux.
In another study, it was found that people who drank alkaline ionized water were to have lower blood pressure, reduction in their cholesterol levels as well as benefits for those with diabetes.
But what about the youth part you ask? Well, take a look at some of the different ways alkaline water can help slow down, or in some instances, reverse the aging process.
REDUCE THE SIGNS OF AGING - YES! Alkaline water helps fight the aging process because of it's high negative oxidation reduction potential. Oxidation is the process where oxygen chemically bonds with other substances. This can damage and destroy cells resulting in different signs of aging and diseases.
HYDRATION - Glowing skin is a sign of healthy skin. In order for your skin to have that healthy glow, it must be flushed of all the toxins. Hydration speeds up your skin's ability to for a better toxin expulsion.
HAIR LOSS REDUCTION - Oxidative damage can result in hair loss as well. The antioxidant properties of alkaline water help flush out free radicals that cause this process.
GUT HEALTHY - Alkaline water may promote a balanced gut environment. This is due to its ability to supply additional hydroxyl ions that get rid of oxygen in the gut.
MORE ENERGY - To transport oxygen to each cell of the body, red blood cells do this by having a negative charge that lets them keep separate and repel each other. When the body is acidic, too much acid can disrupt the negative charge and result in compromised blood flow in the capillaries decreasing the amount of oxygen distributed and the rate at which it’s delivered. As a result, energy levels are decreased and this can also weaken the red blood cells which can produce more acid. Drinking alkaline water to stabilize body pH levels may reverse or prevent this from happening.
REDUCES GERD SYMPTOMS - Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when stomach acid and enzymes, including pepsin, travel back up the esophagus causing acid reflux. Alkaline water may neutralize pepsin and reduce GERD symptoms. This benefit is recorded in a vitro study from the Voice Institute of New York. The study found that drinking alkaline water with 8.8 pH helped in deactivating pepsin and may provide relief for the participant with acid reflux.
HELP WITH WEIGHT LOSS - Alkaline water may also help in your weight loss journey. Drinking around 8 to 10 glasses of cold alkaline water every day may improve the body’s resting metabolic rate.
