The benefits of drinking Alkaline Water

Drinking water –ah where do we start, well one things for certain if you’re drinking tap water make it filtered, this is a very special filter jug as its also alkalising

Maintaining a correct body pH balance is vitally important if we are to enjoy good health. Proper body pH balance promotes health and vitality from cellular level. It keeps the body properly oxygenated which in turn helps to energise the body and support high levels of immunity.

We are alkaline by design but unfortunately modern diets, lifestyles, stress and environmental pollution can put excessive stress on our body's natural buffer systems leading to excess acidity in the blood and tissues. This in turn if not corrected can lead to serious health problems.
Most of know that excess acidity in the blood and tissues is a major result or cause of degenerative disease and good healthy alkaline antioxidant water is the most important nutrient people can take to help reduce excess acidity.

Drinking good alkaline antioxidant water is also great for the skin.  
The Biocera Alkaline Antioxidant Jug filters and alkalises your tap water turning it into mineral rich health promoting alkaline water which has antioxidant properties. The alkaline antioxidant filteruses a new generation of special natural ceramics that affects the water as it flows through it. Filtration through the Biocera alkaline jug filter changes the water that passes through it in four different ways by:

1.     Increasing the pH of the filtered water typically to between 8.5 and 9.5
2.     Changing the oxidation/reduction potential of the water (ORP) to between -100mV and -250mV.
3.     Reducing the size of the clusters of water molecules so that the water is more easily absorbed in the body.
4.     Putting into the water beneficial alkaline minerals such as potassium, magnesium and calcium.
The jug has a capacity of 1.8 litres of filtered water, suitable to fit most refrigerator doors. The waterfilter improves the quality of tap water and provides clear, clean water to be used for tea, coffee, cooking and for drinking water . In addition to creating high alkaline antioxidant water the alkaline jug filter cartridge reducing heavy metals, in addition to chlorine and dissolved organics such as pesticides.

 The filter jug looks like an ordinary jug but in operation is quite different.
1.   The jug filters the water passing through the cartridge, then the special minerals in the cartridge transform the water.
2.    If you use an ordinary filter jug the filtered water will probably be acidic which we do not consider to be best for health.
3.   The pH of the filtered water from the Biocera Jug is typically between 8.5 and 9.5.
4.   It's got antioxidant properties.

5.   The effect of the natural minerals in the water changes the structure of the water making it the water more readily absorbable in the body. It is better at hydrating the body.

6.   The reaction between the water and the natural minerals results in the release of active hydrogen. Research is showing that active hydrogen helps to work as an antioxidant by neutralising harmful free radicals.

7.    Alkaline antioxidant water from the jug is much more cost effective than buying bottled water – in addition to its health and environmental benefits
