We all know that water makes up 70-75 percent of the body weight of an average human being.
Water distributes essential nutrients to cells. It also removes waste products, including toxins that the organs’ cells reject, and removes them through urines and feces.
Water participates in the biochemical breakdown of what we eat. Water has a large heat capacity, which helps the body adjust in a warm or a cold environment.
But do you know the right kind of water that we should be drinking?
In a study done by a British journalist for the Guinness Book of Records, the world’s oldest documented living person was revealed to be a 115-year-old man, Shigechiyo Izumi from Japan. The journalist was amazed by Izumi’s vitality and the fact that he worked until the age of 105.
Researchers discovered that the kind of water Izumi and other islanders drank was different from water found anywhere else in the world. Not only did it contain many essential minerals, but it is also very alkaline, with a pH between 7 and 8.5.
Researcher found this highly alkaline pH of the water to be very beneficial, giving the body an acid-alkaline balance.
It was also observed that people in other parts of the world, like the Hunzas of North Pakistan, the Tibetans, Armenians, Azerbajans, and the Titicacas of Peru all lived long and healthy lives, with no degenerative diseases.
Doctors, health practitioners and researchers attest that the key to good health is to have an alkaline lifestyle coupled with proper diet and exercise, to promote overall positive well-being.
The same Japanese technology is used in every Izumi alkaline water ionizer, which is now here in the Philippines.
Distributed by AqualiPure Water Systems & Equipment, Inc., the Izumi 5P Antioxidant Alkaline Water Ionizer is a convenient, economical, safer, hassle-free way of producing alkaline water by passing filtered tap water through a water ionizer.
The ionizer electrically splits the filtered tap water into alkaline antioxidant water for drinking and acidic water for beauty and medical uses.
The alkaline water produced by Izumi 5P has antioxidant properties that help reduce oxidative damage, and because it is highly oxygenated, micro-clustered, it is good for faster hydration. Its alkaline pH level neutralize acidic waste in our body.
