Did you know that your tap water can be contaminated with chlorine, dioxins, arsenic, mercury, and even pharmaceuticals? Our tap water contains over 80 regulated pollutants and some are not even regulated, such as perchlorate. Oh, have you ever heard of perchlorate before? This is because this substance is otherwise known as rocket fuel.
In addition to removing these toxic chemicals, alkaline water is great for restoring the acid-base balance in the body. Acidity or acidosis is the buildup of free radicals in the body. When there are too many of them, we are at increased risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, autoimmunity, obesity, etc. But toxins and disease-causing bacteria cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. Maintaining an alkaline environment inside your body is the first step to health. While there are a range of alkalizing vegetables and fruits, take a moment and think about the water you drink every day. Since tap water is treated with substances that affect the pH level, we recommend that you create your own alkaline water.
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate), lemon and salt are key ingredients that make any water alkalizing.
Your body does a great job of keeping your cells alkaline. But various chemicals and preservatives added to your cosmetics and home cleaning products, along with environmental pollution, stress, lack of sleep, poor diet and smoking can all disrupt its activity. A low alkaline cell environment can weaken your immune system, and lead to chronic disease.
Benefits of alkaline water
Prepare such water from time to time to help your body. Alkaline water has a number of health benefits, including:
1. Maintaining gut health
Alkaline water has disinfecting properties, protecting the digestive system from unwanted microorganisms that can affect colonies of beneficial bacteria in the intestines. And since 70 percent of your immune system is in your gut, you need to take care of it.
2. Reducing the risk of diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease
By lowering glycation levels and liver damage, you can protect yourself from diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

3. Accelerating recovery from intense exercise
Due to its high mineral content, alkaline water reduces the reaction of lactate in the blood and relieves cardio-respiratory stress that occurs after intense physical activity. It also benefits from quicker recovery, which will help you be ready for your next hard workout faster.
4. Improving the general condition of the body
If you suffer from headaches, bad breath, or even insomnia, your body is likely to have too many acids formed. Alkaline water contains elements that bind to free radicals and flush them out of the body, so you’ll feel better all day long.
5. Maintaining the health of the skeletal system
When your body is deficient in alkaline minerals, especially calcium, it begins to take stores from the bones. This can increase the risk of fractures, osteoporosis, and all types of pain.
But it is worth remembering that this recipe is not recommended for people who have kidney problems. As excess minerals can start to build up in your body.
4 glasses of clean, filtered water
½ teaspoon pink Himalayan salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 lemon, cut into slices
Add all ingredients to the pitcher, stir and leave at room temperature overnight. After that, the drink is ready to drink. Enjoy!
