We do wants the best water on earth. Yes! The best Water…
But the questions is, Can we find it around us?
Allow me to tell you a little story about my experience as an OFW in Saudi Arabia for more than 14 years. We used to drink desalinated water supplied by our company. We drink without knowing that the solids content on the water is above the suggested TDS. Having no information that high TDS in drinking water can cause a no short term effects, but toxic ions to our body. On which concludes why Kidney is the most common decease among OFW in Saudi Arabia.
Scary! but, that sparked an interest in most OFW to find the healthier water.
Until I got a chance to learn how important it is for our bodies to maintain a balanced pH level. Normally our blood is slightly alkaline and ranges between 7.35-7.45.
Luckily, water has come a long way since commercials in social media has been placed.
For five months we religiously drink alkaline water. We took water with us anytime we would be gone from the house for a significant amount of time, we took at least one large bottle of alkaline water with us.
Drinking alkaline water keep us more hydrate unlike conventional drinking water, alkaline water instantly denatures pepsin, rendering it permanently inactive and it has good acid-buffering capacity. Thus, the consumption of alkaline water may have therapeutic benefits for patients with reflux disease.
