The importance of drinking water with an alkaline pH
Water with an alkaline pH and essential mineral content can help the body resist disease and slow aging by:
- Increasing Intracellular Hydration
- Replacing Depletion of Essential Minerals
- Stabilizing and Protecting Cells
- Helping To Maintain Normal Blood Flow and pH
- Flushing Out and Preventing Wastes from Accumulating in Cells
- Preventing Free Radicals from Forming
pH balance is an important aspect of a healthy balanced body. Maintaining an alkaline balance in your cells is critical to cellular health. The bloods pH averages 7.35 to 7.4
A pH of less than 7.0 is considered acidic becoming more acidic as we move to 1.
Mount Aqua Spring Water has a pH of 7.8 making it slightly alkaline (naturally) and thus a perfect aid in maintaining the ideal pH level of your body.
Important information on some of the essential minerals found in Mount Aqua Bottled Spring Water.
Calcium is extremely important for your body. In addition to it being essential for bones and teeth, it is also important to keep your muscles and nerves working properly. It helps blood clot and keeps your heart beating properly.
It is very difficult to take too much Calcium as excess Calcium is easily removed from the body through waste. Mount Aqua Spring Water contains 13.3mg/l of Calcium to add to your daily calcium needs.
Magnesium is the 4th most abundant mineral in the body and plays a key roll in at least 300 enzymatic reactions. It maintains normal heart rhythm and converts blood sugar into energy. Mount Aqua Spring Water contains 16mg/l of Magnesium to assist good daily function.
Sodium is both an electrolyte and mineral and helps keep the water and electrolyte balance of the body. It is also important for nerve and muscle function. Mount Aqua Spring Water contains 11.8mg/l of Sodium which is just enough to increase your electrolyte balance but not too much so as to effect the taste of the water or effect a low sodium diet.
The human body is made up of over 60 percent water. That water contains a mixture of minerals, including sodium, calcium and potassium. Those minerals collectively are known as electrolytes and are essential for body function. Mount Aqua Spring Water contains all of these essential minerals ensuring a good electrolyte balance in your body.
Negative Health effects from drinking demineralized water. (as published in a document by the World Health Organization Geneva 2004).
Demineralized water is defined as water almost or completely free of dissolved minerals as a result of distillation, deionization, membrane filtration (reverse osmosis or nanofiltration), electrodialysis or other technology.
It has been found that consuming large quantities of demineralized water has a negative effect on homeostasis mechanisms, compromising the mineral and water metabolism in the body. Drinking demineralized water leads to dilution of electrolytes in the body water which may compromise the function of vital organs, symptoms of which may include tiredness, weakness and headache as well as muscular cramps and impaired heart rate.
