HEALTH BENEFITS

ALKALINE DRINKS

Alkaline drinks are believed to have health benefits in regulating the body’s pH level and preventing or reducing the body’s acid level.

Evidence suggests a handful of other alkaline drink benefits:

Helpful for detoxification

Detoxification is important for removing the accumulation of harmful toxins in the body. Toxic overload can lead to chronic fatigue, low energy, bloating, mental confusion, inflammation, and food sensitivities. Alkaline drinks can help detox the body of heavy metals, such as mercury. In a 2003 study published in the journal Ambio, researchers found that alkaline water had a protective effect against mercury in 43 women who lived in an alkaline-rich area in Sweden.

Helps improve bone health

Alkaline drinks could also improve bone health. A 2014 observational study published in the BMJ associated a high milk intake with a higher risk of fractures amongst women. It is thought that alkaline water is a safer dietary source of calcium than milk or dairy. In a 2009 study published in the journal Bone, researchers discovered that alkaline water significantly reduced two markers associated with bone loss – PTH and S-CTX – in 30 female dieticians.

Essential for heart health

Alkaline drinks can reduce certain risk factors associated with heart disease. In a study published in the Shanghai Journal of Preventative Medicine, researchers found that alkaline water consumption for three to six months could significantly reduce blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol.

It was concluded that alkaline ionised water could improve the symptoms associated with diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. Heart disease and hypertension are risk factors for diabetes. In a 2004 study published in the journal BMC Public Health, researchers suggested that alkalised mineral water could lower blood pressure in people with low calcium and magnesium levels.

Provides antioxidant benefits

Alkaline drinks are a natural antioxidant that can neutralise harmful radicals in the body. Laboratory studies have also tested the antioxidant potential of alkaline water. In a 2006 study published in the journal Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology, alkaline water showed potent antioxidant activity when mixed with Vitamin C.

Natural electrolytes – benefits to travel

Worldwide travel is enjoyed by a great many people, however dehydration is a common problem due to the lack of humidity in the cabin air – the air inside the cabin of a plane normally has a humidity level ranging between 10 and 20 percent.

To help counter jet lag (which is often exaggerated by being dehydrated), drinking plenty of our water, which contains natural electrolytes, will keep your body hydrated and will help to replace essential lost minerals that the body needs.

Reduces acid reflux

Commonly known as acid indigestion and heartburn, acid reflux is a condition where stomach acid flows into the oesophagus. People are often diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), where acid reflux is experienced at least twice a week.

Research shows that alkaline drinks can be a beneficial therapeutic treatment for patients with acid reflux disease. In a 2012 laboratory study published in the journal The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology, researchers discovered that drinking alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 results in beneficial acid-buffering activity.

A UNIQUE DRINK

An alkaline water

Angel of Mawdesley Natural Alkaline Water has a unique mineral content, rich in the key minerals and electrolytes required by the body. It is a drink with a pH of 8.2 and as such is an alkaline water.

The unique mineral content results in our helping to replacing lost minerals in the body during hydration, whilst replenishing and revitalising the body.

pH level and alkalinity

A pH level of 7 is considered neutral. pH values under 7 are classified as acidic whilst values over are considered to be alkaline. Our drink has a pH level of 8.2 which leads to it being categorised as an alkaline water.

Alkaline drinks are believed to have health benefits in regulating the body’s pH level and preventing or reducing the body’s acid level.

DENTAL HEALTH

ALKALINE WATER CAN HELP TO MAINTAIN GOOD DENTAL HEALTH

What we eat and drink has an impact on our dental health, from our gums to the enamel that covers our teeth and keeps them strong and hard.

The type of water that we brush our teeth with will affect our dental health. Pure drinking water is neither acidic nor alkaline, it has a pH of 7.0, which is a neutral pH, however tap water might be slightly acidic or a low alkaline.

It’s believed that there are several disadvantages to drinking and brushing our teeth with acidic water.

We are a natural alkaline water with a pH of 8.2
