I heard a fitness trainer say that the best workout was the one you’ll keep doing.
Drinking water is like that. We just need to keep drinking it. Doctors say to take half your weight in pounds and drink at least that number of ounces each day.
It’s simple: To stay healthy, we hydrate. Water helps us:
- Keep a normal temperature
- Cushion our joints
- Protect our spinal cords
- Get rid of wastes
Basically, it keeps everything running smoothly.
*So, if you are passing on the tap water, which water should you choose? Alkaline Water or Spring Water? What’s the difference?
What is Alkaline Water?
Alkaline is the opposite of acidic on the pH scale. Anything with a pH of 7.0-10.0 is considered alkaline.
Another name for alkaline water is ionized water which tells us it became alkaline through a chemical process, unlike spring water. We’ll get to that in a minute.
Why Does that Matter?
It helps alkalize an acidic body. Hold on. I’m not judging you. People eat. Many foods are acidic, like processed foods, red meat, dairy, and sugar. Left to their own designs, these foods can make your body acidic, a dream world for diseases. Why not throw some water at the problem?
Research shows you can live longer by drinking water with a high pH level.
Different studies show these health benefits come from drinking alkaline water:
- Detox heavy metals
- Lose weight
- Reduce acid reflux
- Improve bone health
- Improve heart health
In a nutshell, drinking alkaline water improves symptoms related to diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. A tough act to follow, for sure. But let’s see what spring water has in store…
Spring Water? But It’s Summer.
Yeah, right. It earned its name because it comes from a spring, a place where water moving underground pops through an opening on land. Springs can begin in any kind of rock, but running over that rock is the key to the health value of spring water. Pristine water moving over rocks naturally collects minerals. Those minerals create alkalinity. Say what? Spring water is alkaline water?
Spring water is naturally alkaline water. And we know the benefits of alkaline water, right?
Now let’s start with an even playing field.
What’s Nature Got to Do with It?
First off, make sure the spring water you’re buying is actually from a spring. Do some research. If you want the benefits, make sure they’re there.
Secondly, remember when I said that alkaline water comes from a chemical process? That process uses only a few minerals. Nature tends to have a bunch. And when it comes to minerals and the human body, more is more.
The body responds best to the natural array of minerals spring water offers. It goes beyond the alkalinity. When nature isn’t broken, don’t fix it comes to mind.
Just Like Snowflakes, No Two Springs Are Alike.
The power of spring water lies in its nature. Which also makes it completely unique. What I mean is knowing that a bottle of water contains spring water doesn’t tell you what minerals are in it. Reading about the spring does.
It’s doable. Read the label for the source, and go to the search bar on your phone. The one in your hand right now.
So the Verdict Is…
Spring Water by a drop. As long as it’s legit.
Both Alkaline Water and Spring Water reduce acidity in the body, have antioxidating effects, and do a kick-butt job at hydration. Spring Water just does these things naturally. And nature has its own kind of unstoppable magic. It’s the secret sauce of life.
