Because of poor diet and lifestyle habits, many people are developing very serious illnesses much earlier in life. Most people in the Western world consume a predominantly acidic diet. Continuing this way of life for a long period of time will eventually lead to acidosis, which is the perfect environment for disease to develop and thrive. Those in the alternative health community already understand that it is nearly impossible for disease to thrive in an alkaline environment. Consuming alkaline water can help you keep your body’s pH level balanced and neutralize acid in the body. Drinking this water regularly can help improve your overall health.
