The importance of drinking water cannot be stressed enough. As we know the body consists of 70 % water. Every little chemical reaction occurring in your body – needs water.
Water transports the nutrients to the cells and transports toxins away from the cells. It makes up our saliva, humidifies the lining of the stomach, hydrates our intestines and lungs, etc. etc. But it’s important to know what kind of water we should drink…
If you live in the US, your tap water may be a total hazard. It’s more like a chemical soup.
Everything from fluoride, soap residue, pesticides, cadmium, copper, arsenic, sulphuric acid, hormones, lead and chlorine…. The list can be made longer… But we think you get our point. Then there are inorganic minerals like iron, sulphur, calcium, magnesium, plaster and chalk, etc. etc.
In our opinion the best water we can drink is clean ionized water. And you can decide what pH you want your water to have. We think the best ionizer water machine on the market, is the Kangen water machine from Enagic. It has a whopping negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) number of minus 400, which makes the water a powerful antioxidant. The Kangen water is 6-16 times stronger than Vitamin C and 3-8 times stronger than green tea.
The 3 most important properties of Kangen Water:
1) It has a pH range from 2,5-11,5. The water you drink starts at 8.5 pH. When the bodies become more alkaline, it can repair itself, which it cannot do in an acidic environment. After 2-3 weeks you can enhance the pH to 9.0 and eventually drink 9.5 pH. The more alkaline, the more your body can cleanse itself.
2) The effective antioxidant of minus 400 of ORP, means that it has the ability to eliminate free radicals, which in turn is responsible for 70 % of all diseases, including some types of cancer, diabetes and premature aging. Negative ions are good for the body and positive ions are bad for the body.
3) The molecules of Kangen water is restructured into a hexagonal shape. Water molecules in their pristine environment are always hexagonal. After miles and miles in water pipes, the water has lost 1 molecule and becomes pentagonal instead.
A hexagonal molecule penetrates the cell membrane more efficiently than the pentagonal water molecule, which is the shape of regular tap water. According to Dr. Batmanghelidj, most illnesses can be reveresed by drinking enough of the right kind of water. See his book: ”The Healing Power of Water”.
As late as 2003 Dr. Peter Agres was awarded with a Nobel Prize in chemistry for his discovery of ”aquaporines” in the walls of the cells, which transports the water to the cells. These water channels have proven to be very important for the hydration of the cells, the transportation of nutrients to the cells and the elimination of toxins from the cells.
How much water should we drink per day?
As a rule of thumb, between (0,5)-0,8-1 ounce/1 lb body weight.
