The Key to Optimizing Health from Drinking Water

Forget those who try to sell you alkaline water, or bottled water, as they do not optimize health.

Many bottled waters are no better than tap water.

Drinking alkaline water has no effect on stomach pH, or on the pH of blood. Filtered water manufacturers claim that alkaline water, which has a pH higher than tap water, can neutralize acid in your blood, boost energy, speed metabolism and even slow the aging process. Most of these claims are unproven, though limited research has shown that alkaline water may reduce bone loss in pre-menopausal women, according to the health department at Columbia University. For a sure way to improve your bone health and maintain healthy pH levels, eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, along with plenty of calcium and vitamin D sources, such as fortified milk and salmon. No need to drink alkaline water.

*Drink 1 glass 30 Minutes before meal – helps digestion
*Drink 1 glass before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
*Drink 1 glass before sleep – may help to avoid stroke or heart attack.
