There is a paradigm shift where people are seen talking about the benefits of consuming a healthy diet that includes essential superfoods and supplements,along with emphasising the importance of exercising regularly to boost one’s immunity. What has completely missed our attention is the most vital component of our body, water. Water consumption, which makes 60% of a human adult body, is paid the least attention.
People in general lack awareness of the fact that the water they drink daily is not fit for consumption. They are comfortable with a simple RO system but are unaware that it drains the water of many nutrients crucial for the body. It lowers the pH value of the water we drink, making it acidic, corrosive, bitter in taste, which is hard for the body to absorb. Alkaline water is one of the significant steps that one can take towards boosting the immune system.
How can Alkaline Water boost immunity?
Alkaline water is something that has been ionized and hence has a higher pH level of about 8 or 9 compared to a pH value of 7 found in regular tap water. It neutralizes the acidic content in the body, thereby, preventing a number of ailments and chronic diseases from attacking it.
Alkaline water that has several benefits, is easily absorbed by the human body and helps to let it stay hydrated for a long time. It improves the functioning of the circulatory system that increases the amount of oxygen carried by the blood to vital organs. Alkaline water is infused with a variety of minerals, including calcium, potassium, sodium, magnesium, and other trace elements that play an important role in improving the immune system. It also prevents the growth of free radicals in the body, which slows down the ageing process. Drinking alkaline water is also beneficial for people suffering from high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
According to a study published in Evidence Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine, alkaline water is known to increase longevity and improve the survival functions of the body. Another study published in the Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine states that regular consumption of alkaline water reduces the chances of osteoporosis and protects the pancreatic beta cells. Another study that was published in the Public Library of Science shows that drinking alkaline water enhances hydration, improves the body’s acid-base balance and the anaerobic exercise performance of the body.
