is the most crucial factor in establishing and maintaining proper acid-alkaline
balance. Since your body is 70% water, it is extremely important to constantly
replenish your supply of it. The body loses 2.5 liters of water every day just
through normal bodily functions. The quality of the water that you drink is just
as important as the quantity of water you drink. The water you put in your body
must be able to prevent toxins and chemical substances from accumulating and
creating destructive influences on cells. Water must also transport minerals and
nutrients required for cell metabolism, and remove any substances that can
damage the cell. Ideally, the water you drink should have a ph between 9 and 10,
and you should be drinking 3-4 liters of it daily.
order to hydrate your body optimally, you need to drink water that is alkaline
Alkaline water helps to neutralize stored acids and toxins. Once these acids are
neutralized, they can then be removed by the body. Alkaline water containing
ionic minerals also acts as a conductor of electrochemical activity from cell to
cell. Reports from studies suggest that ionized, alkaline water can help the
body resist disease and slow aging by:

What are Antioxidants?
do they come from? Everywhere. Not only does your body produce them as part of
normal metabolism, there are also many external sources such as air pollution,
alcohol, pesticides, sunlight, tobacco smoke, drugs and fried foods. Even our
stressful lifestyles are related to excess oxidative stress.
come in. Antioxidants are scavengers that neutralize free radicals. Although
your body produces its own antioxidants, they are often insufficient to protect
against the total oxidative stress we all experience. In fact, scientists have
already linked free radicals to many different types of diseases.
a diet rich in natural antioxidants, like those that come from fruits and
vegetables, may help protect against free radical damage
What are Antioxidants? Benefits of Antioxidants
(HealthCastle.com) Antioxidants are substances or nutrients in our foods which can prevent or slow the oxidative damage to our body. When our body cells use oxygen, they naturally produce free radicals (by-products) which can cause damage. Antioxidants act as "free radical scavengers" and hence prevent and repair damage done by these free radicals. Health problems such as heart disease, macular degeneration, diabetes, cancer etc are all contributed by oxidative damage. Indeed, a recent study conducted by researchers from London found that 5 servings of fruits and vegetables reduce the risk of stroke by 25 percent. Antioxidants may also enhance immune defense and therefore lower the risk of cancer and infection.
How might antioxidants prevent cancer?Antioxidants neutralize free radicals as the natural by-product of normal cell processes. Free radicals are molecules with incomplete electron shells which make them more chemically reactive than those with complete electron shells. Exposure to various environmental factors, including tobacco smoke and radiation, can also lead to free radical formation. In humans, the most common form of free radicals is oxygen. When an oxygen molecule (O2) becomes electrically charged or “radicalized” it tries to steal electrons from other molecules, causing damage to the DNA and other molecules. Over time, such damage may become irreversible and lead to disease including cancer. Antioxidants are often described as “mopping up” free radicals, meaning they neutralize the electrical charge and prevent the free radical from taking electrons from other molecules.
