Water is one of the key components of life, and governments around the world spend a lot of money on literature encouraging us all to drink more of it. However, the type of water that you drink can be just as significant as the quantity, and there are a lot of concerns about the contamination of drinking water. Most Americans know that the water in Flint, Michigan is seriously toxic, but what they may not realize is that most drinking water is contaminated in some way. Although a report set out four years ago how most water is contaminated with “extremely small pieces…of plastic debris resulting from the disposal and breakdown of consumer products and industrial waste”, and well water “throughout California contaminated with ‘forever chemicals'” or PFAs, the majority of LA residents still drink tap water. One solution to the issue of contamination is an alkaline water dispenser; Urban Oasis explains why.
Avoiding Acidity in Water
One of the big contaminants of modern drinking water is acid, typically from run-off from farmland and industrial sites. This can have a negative effect on the human body, increasing aches and pains and generally poor health. Tap water will generally have a high pH, often of 7 or lower, while more alkaline water, of 7 or above, will help to neutralize some of the harmful acidity already in the body and promote the growth of better gut bacteria. This is particularly important for people with problems such as acid reflux, as alkaline water can stimulate better gut health.
Benefits Of an Alkaline Water Dispenser
There are other benefits to using alkaline water, not just for drinking but also for cooking and even bathing. Firstly, there is some evidence that it can assist with efforts to lose weight, reducing the acidic body’s tendency to absorb cholesterol and fatty foods quickly, and also preventing free radicals from traveling around the digestive system in too great a quantity. Alkaline water often contains a much higher level of minerals due to the alkalizing process, so this can be an added benefit for everyone using the water. By eliminating tap water from the diet, homeowners and office managers can see an overall improvement in the health of everyone using the dispenser, including greater productivity and a reduction in conflicts, through the simple process of encouraging better health and reducing toxins in the diet.
