Thirsty for water? Take the water challenge!
So maybe you’ve been complaining like many others about the gas prices we have had to deal with lately, but I have to wonder, why don’t people complain about the price of buying water?
I mean, every grocery store has at least one dedicated isle to bottled water, when we get to turn on our tap and get it for free! It doesn’t make sense to me especially since most bottled water is actually not very good for you and can actually DEHYDRATE YOU!! Sounds crazy right? I know, I thought the same thing too before I did some research and took the water challenge.
What I am talking about it is your body’s pH which is a scale between 0-14. 0-7 is acidic and 7.1-14 is alkaline. Our bodies function best at around 7.41-8. Being slightly alkaline, our bodies are better hydrated, we have less inflammation (pain), our bodies fight off bacteria and viruses more readily and the list continues of benefits. So drinking bottled water can be very acidic so can tap water. You can do the test yourself! Buy a litmus test from your local pharmacy and test your tap water by dipping the strip into bottled water and tap water and see what the pH is. If it’s acidic, that means every time you drink that water, you are creating more acidity in your body!
What to do? Drink Alkalinized water! Alkalinized water is filtered water that is pure and is more alkaline so that when you consume it, it helps your body’s pH to be at its optimal alkaline state so you are healthier, and more hydrated and feel better. Don’t believe me yet? Do the test or stop into the office to try alkaline water for free!
