What’s in your water?

When you think about your personal health and nutrition goals, what food or nutrients do you usually consider to be most important? Consider this: Our brains are made up of about 70% water, our bodies about 80%, surely water should be considered one of the most important things we put into our body on a daily basis. Each morning when you rise, you are already 2 cups dehydrated.

To enhance your daily protocol whatever it may be now, you can do one simple thing that will give you more energy, help you focus, and reduce cravings. Can you guess what that one thing is going to be? Upon waking, drink at least 2 cups of filtered alkaline water. We wake up about 2 cups dehydrated, so starting your day off with coffee or some other form of diuretic can lead to further dehydration throughout your day. Start with water first, then move on to something else if you wish.

Your Tap water is generally a mixture of chlorine, antibiotics, hormones and other metals that will go straight into your system.

Impure water can cause a weakened immune system and an array of other illnesses that occur when the immune system is vulnerable. You’re also in danger should anything contaminate the public water sources. I’m sure from time to time you’ve heard or read about the acid/alkaline balance that’s so crucial to staying healthy. When our bodies are too acidic, we experience low energy, fatigue, digestive issues, weight gain and other side effects that are completely avoidable just by drinking pure water and eating fresh organic vegetables with a healthy acid/alkaline balance.

Use an alkaline water filtration system whenever possible. Alkaline filtration systems can be costly, ranging from 1-3k, however you are able to find personal Alkaline wands at your local health food store for around $30. Ideally, fresh spring water is the absolute best water for you to drink.

Alkaline water recipe:

  • 1 pitcher (64 ounces) of clean filtered water
  • 1 organic lemon, washed, cut into eighths
  • 1 tsp Himalayan pink salt

Directions: Fill pitcher, add in Lemon wedges (do not squeeze!). Then add 1 tsp.Himalayan Pink Salt, cover, and let sit overnight (8-12 hrs.) at room temperature.
