Benefits of alkaline water

Alkaline water and its benefits are one of the newer trends to have made its way into the already overcrowded wellness and health conscience world. Drinking alkaline water offers more health benefits than one. It helps slow down the aging process, regulate pH levels of the body and prevent various chronic diseases. Alkaline water refers to neutralizing acid levels in the body, which normal/purified water cannot do.

 

Alkaline water has a pH level of about 8 or 9 and the pH level of normal tap water is 7, which is neutral. It is believed that alkaline water helps people with excess acidity as it helps neutralize the acid in the body; thanks to its alkaline nature. This process of neutralizing acids in the body helps prevent various ailments. There are ways to increase the alkaline properties of water by using special filters, faucet attachments, and additives that raise the pH levels, making normal tap water go from neutral pH to Alkaline. Water always changes. Human beings evolved, adapted, and survived by drinking the changing spring water. The following is generative progress of the water; River, seawater > separation, evaporation > snow, rain (alike reverse osmosis) purified water or electrolysis alkaline ionized and hydrogen water > soil, sand, stones (alike BIOCERA crystal balls) > generating life-giving water that has auto therapy power containing minerals, alkaline, oxygen, anion, reductive power, far-infrared energy, etc.

 

Artificial antibiotics, such as drugs have a superb, good effect initially. However, it is said that it is resistant to the human body when used continuously. To avoid the harm, we apply BIOCERA crystal balls that have auto therapy power as nature to artificial electric usages such as reverse osmosis or electrolysis alkaline ionized water & hydrogen water and use in the field of purified water, mineral water, food, agriculture, livestock, etc
