Alkalized Water
and Bad Drinking Water

Alkalized water can be found in mineral water aka spring water which is perhaps the most natural type of alkalizing water! 

Alkalized water comes with a different balance of minerals and finding one that fits your needs will take a little research. 

Some people are lucky and can get their own water from a nearby spring, but most people will have to purchase this water at their local grocery stores.

Find out what bad drinking water is, so that you can stay away from drinking this type of water to stay healthy.  This includes tap water contaminated with chemicals and toxins.

Health Benefits of Alkalized Water

  • Balances electrolytes and helps with re-hydration
  • Beneficial effects on kidneys and heart
  • Contains antioxidant properties and can decrease blood pressure
  • Helps to produce strong teeth and bones
  • Helps to combat bacteria and fungus
  • Known to reduce pain, aches, and swelling

Minerals in Alkalized Water

Mineral waters will differ on the types of minerals and the amount of minerals it will offer.

The mineral content of alkalized water can include magnesium, calcium, potassium, sodium, iron, sulfate, bicarbonates, and silica.

Traditionally, natural mineral waters also known as spring water would be used or consumed at the source. 

Today, mineral water is usually bottled at the source of a natural spring.  And then it is sold to you.

This type of water can include trace minerals that can be extremely advantageous to our bodies.  This alkalized water can help your body to achieve optimal health. 

Bad Drinking Water

The quality of your water does matter just like the quality of your food matters.  Be sure that you are drinking clean and safe water!

Unfortunately, most people are having to settle for bad drinking water that is really unfit for human consumption.

This type of water doesn't really hydrate your body, lacks vital minerals, and is filled with contaminates.

One pretty good option is to use filters on tap water to remove potential toxins. 

Some people insist that water distillers are the best way to remove toxins or contaminates from tap water.

However, this process does not add any life to your drinking water. 

Drinking large amounts of contaminated water (most tap water) and depleted water (distilled water) will probably both do more harm then good in the long run. 

Also, the so called "alkaline" waters which are made from machines and not from nature can be very hard on your body because they are not "stable" water.

Drink "Real" Water

Some people are lucky enough to have access to "real" water that comes from pristine sources. 

These waters have their own built in filtration system and come with lots of important trace minerals.

When I lived in Sedona I was lucky enough to get alkalized water from a spring that had been tapped into which was on the side of a busy road.

You can try to locate a spring that's closest to where you live by going to Find a Spring
