Why the Quality of Water Matters.
We have always been told to drink water, but do we know why?
The human body is approximately 60-80% water, our blood is 90%, the brain is 83%, lungs are 83%, Kidneys are 85%, eyes are 95%, the heart is 75%, cartilage is 80%, and the muscles are 75% water. If we are not keeping ourselves properly hydrated with high quality water, our body begins to go into survival mode and our organs aren't functioning at the proper rate that they should.
Unfortunately, according to the Institute of Medicine, almost 75% of Americans suffer from chronic dehydration, leading to inflammation, and serious illnesses and disease.
Symptoms of dehydration include, but are not limited to:
•pain and inflammation in the joints
•kidney stones and kidney failure
Even though many individuals are drinking plenty of water, they're still dehydrated. How is this? Simple. They're not drinking high quality water. Quantity means nothing if quality isn't there. In fact, most water that is normalized in today's society does more harm than good.
Here's some educated advice, stop drinking tap water, water bottles, and Reverse Osmosis.
Tap and water bottles contain toxic chemicals and substances that poison us and lead to serious health issues. Reverse Osmosis may seem like the smarter thing to do, but I assure you it isn't. Since RO removes all substances from the water, including the good ones it is considered "dead water", it contains little or no dissolved oxygen, and has absolutely no way of actually hydrating the human body.

Let's talk about true hydration.
Japan is #1 in the world in leading health and lifespan. The leading brand of water ionizers are produced in Japan, and are the highest quality in the world. They have created innovative water technology that restructures your water. Most water contains 15-20 molecule clusters, too big to penitrate the cell wall. So even though you may be drinking enough water throughout the day, if you're not drinking restructured high quality water you're not getting hydrated.
The water produced from this technology contains 5 molecule structures, which is able to hydrate the brain in 30 seconds, and penitrate the cell wall 6X faster than "normal" water.
This machine takes your water through the process of electrolysis - where electric current is passed through the water, which:
•Replaces soluble acids in your drinking water with trace minerals, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and sodium.
•Reduces the oxidation reduction potential (ORP), turning your water into the highest antioxidant liquid on the planet.
•Breaks large water clusters into micro-clusters, increasing the overall hydration of your body.
•Aids in the displacement of acids through urination, sweat, and other normal channels of elimination through your Kidneys, bowel, lymph, and skin.
•Works to turn your body into an alkaline state where sickness and disease cannot thrive.
Along with the quality, you should also be considering the pH of your drinking water. Below is a pH chart, you can see that 7 is a neutral pH. Anything below 7 is considered acidic, anything above 7 is considered alkaline. If you are consuming beverages such as soda pop, sports drinks, bottled water, etc. Your internal environment is acidic. At the pH of 6 cancer cells turn on and you are much more susceptible to chronic diseases. At the pH of 8 the cancer cells start dying, at 8.8 they shut off completely. If you are concerned about becoming "too alkaline" I can assure you that is not going to happen. Whatch a video on that here https://youtu.be/-ILQlbRW7nc.
In the book "Killing Cancer Not People" by Robert G. Wright, he speaks about restructured, ionized Water and how it could save your life. So if you don't want to take my word for it, take his.
In conclusion I would like to say that not all water is created equal and yes, the source matters. Start taking preventive measures today so that your health doesn't suffer tomorrow.
