The problem is, in nature, water does come in an alkaline state because of the minerals. When you artificially make water alkaline, you split apart the water molecules with electricity to make it alkaline but without the minerals. It's the minerals that add the "x" factor in water, not just H2O. There are problems long term that can occur with drinking artificially-made alkaline water - the neutralization of body acids (stomach, large intestines, and urine). I have found that some people who drink alkaline water end up with the urine of a pH of 9, completely off the scale when it should be 5-6. This breeds microbes. Making your entire body alkaline can create problems with electrolytes (affecting the heart), the muscles, and slow digestion because you need a strong acid stomach.
All that said, Dr. Okeke-Igbokwe explains that the current body of research available on alkaline water isn’t strong enough to support claims of the potential benefits. A healthy, functioning body is already doing what is necessary to maintain your blood pH. Sollid reiterates that alkaline water won’t affect the body’s acidity levels—which is a good thing because the body requires a balanced pH. “Thankfully, the pH of our body is a tightly controlled process that even the most expensive bottled water can’t interrupt,” he says. Bottom line, Sollid says, drinking regular water will keep you hydrated and healthy without the added cost of the trendy alkaline variety.
Balance pH Alkaline: Add real lemon juice to your water or use herbal supplements instead such as ORGANIC ACID 2 ALKALINE (Certified Organic by QAI) from Looking Vibrant.
Most consumers' spending habits are not consistent or based on healthy smart choices / The numbers don't lie!
Ref: Beyond The Numbers
Some consumers are spending more than $4000 on alkaline water machines. (Waste of Money).
$12.3 billion spent on alkaline water in 2013 (Mind you that 99% of these water bottles are Not BPA Free which leads to many diseases, including birth defects and increases diseases such as kidney cancer.) Bon Appetit!
How much does the average American spend on junk food annually? The typical American spends about $1,200 on fast food annually.
How much does the average person spend on entertainment per year? The average family spends $2,900 on entertainment per year. This means a total of $4,700 on average is spent on clothing and entertainment. This is 4.5% of the average consumer unit's income after taxes.
" Starbucks' average consumer spent, anywhere between $3.43 and $4.43."
"If you're ordering a tall drink; it's costing you, on average, $3.34 daily, $1,221 annually and $6,105 over 5 years"!
What about vitamins?
The New York Times: "Americans spend $30 billion a year on dietary supplements — vitamins, minerals, and herbal products. That comes to about $100 for the whole year for every man, woman, and child". That's less than a $10 a month/equivalent to just 2 cups of Macchiatos at Starbucks!! (Remember, the majority of consumers purchase cheap synthetic supplements made by big pharma full of dangerous chemicals and fillers, including your MD prescription vitamins which increase diseases such as cancer and heart disease by 32% according to the book, Over-The-Counter Natural-Cures.)
Why do you spend so much time worrying about your job, your car, your house, your retirement, and your finances? If you don’t have good health, You’ll have none of these to worry about!
If what you thought you knew was true, But you find out It wasn’t, When would you want to know?
What you don’t know, you don't know If it's going to kill you or heal you...
Do supplements have any real health benefits? I thought you might never ask!
In the 1800s, One million British navy died from scurvy (Vitamin C deficiency!)
According to Dr. Peter Osborne: “B12 Deficiency is dangerous and can kill".
Renowned researcher Dr. Bruce Ames noted in his Research Paper (1988) that: “Deficiencies in Vitamin D, ZINC, Calcium, Folate, Magnesium, Potassium, B12, Selenium, Omega-3EFA, Niacin, Choline, and E, Cause DNA Mutations / Damage (Double Strand breaks). Just as if you are taking chemo or exposed to Radiation 24/7 which leads to many diseases including Cancer and accelerates Aging”.
Dr. Rhonda Patrick Says: "A Double Strands Break is a biomarker for inflammation, cancer, and aging caused by nutrition deficiency”.
Dr. Rhonda Patrick Explains the Cause of Heart Disease: "80% is preventable by diet alone”!
IF YOU'RE USING SUPPLEMENTS SUCH AS CENTRUM, GUMMY BEARs, FLINTSTONES, NATURE MADE, MD Physician Vitamin prescriptions or any other cheap synthetic supplements, and thinking that somehow, there are some benefits in using these cheap vitamins sold by AMAZON or your big block retailers, you need to brush up on Hard Scientific Research and read below.
Book Ref: OVER -THE COUNTER- NATURAL CURES;
“Under microscope was a Petri dish containing DNA, SYNTHETIC VITAMIN BLOWN THE GENETIC MAP OF THE DNA TO PIECES"." 99% of supplement companies use it including your MD physician vitamin prescriptions that are produced by drug giants Hoffmann-La Roche and BASF".
"Without CoQ10, the heart fails. Congestive heart failure is the outcome”. Statin Drugs Reduced CoQ10 by 50% in just 30 days. However, "There is a long list of pharmaceuticals drugs that rob your body of CoQ10, Without it, the Heart Fails. Congestive Heart Failure is the outcome".
Approximately every 40 seconds, an American will have a heart attack.
Dr. Al Sears says:
"When we ran one of the first clinical studies on CoQ10, we discovered that 87% of my patients had low levels of CoQ10".
Book Ref: Over-The-Counter Natural Cures, nutrients can solve it all. There has been a nutrient logic code since the 1900s that includes:
Vitamin C cures scurvy.
Vitamin D cures rickets.
Niacin cures pellagra.
Thiamin cures beriberi.
Not a single medication, coffee or alkaline water was used to cure any of these diseases. And the list goes on regarding how dangerous Vitamin and Mineral deficiencies are...
“Good nutrition and vitamins do not directly cure disease; the body does. You provide the raw materials and the inborn wisdom of your body makes the repairs.” – Andrew W. Saul
According to Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum and Dr. Gottlieb’s book, Real Cause, Real Cure: "D deficiency causes tens of thousands of unnecessary deaths every year in the United States from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and dementia"! He continues to say that, “70% of whites, 90 % of Latinos, and 97% of blacks in the United States have low blood levels of vitamin D, reported researchers at Harvard and the University of Colorado in the Archives of Internal Medicine.
*Now, after reading just a few facts regarding how nutrition deficiency can get us sick, cause us to age faster, and even kill us... is there anyone who's reading this article whom will make a decision to start purchasing premium supplements as their top priorities & their loved ones today? The answer is Yes, but how many? Less Than 0.1% of the readers... WOW! (I know... very disappointing percentage...but this percentage is based on google analytics' conversion rate.)
