WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER?
The pH (potential hydrogen) scale runs from zero to fourteen, and 7 is the neutral middle. A substance with a pH of less than 7 is an acid. A basic or alkaline substance has a pH of greater than 7. Your tap water is generally a mixture of chlorine, antibiotics, hormones and other metals that will go straight into your system after you drink it.
This kind of impure water can cause a weakened immune system and an array of other illnesses that occur when the immune system is vulnerable. When our bodies become too acidic, we feel 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
IMPORTANCE OF ALKALINITY
Food can determine our overall pH levels and that has been known for centuries. Dr. Otto Warburg of Germany, who was a Nobel Prize winner in 1931, discovered that that up to 95% of all cancers have the acidic environment as the cause behind them. He also managed to prove that cancers cannot thrive in an alkaline environment where the pH level is 7.36 or more.
According to him, acidosis (excess of acidity) is not only connected to development of cancer, but it could also cause other diseases like osteoporosis, diabetes, heart disease and almost all other chronic diseases which we suffer from nowadays.
- 1 lemon
- 1/2 a cucumber

- If you keep adding new water, they will last around three days.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Lemon possesses numerous pH balancing properties. It has quite an acidic taste, but it is inherently alkaline and helps the body maintain its balance. It is also a powerful disinfectant and antibacterial compound which helps in the treatment of numerous conditions from bad breath to cholera, and has even 22 anti-cancer properties!
