How Fitness Water’s high PH 9.5 can help Alkaline and Anti-oxidize, leading to better health and performance?

There are many benefits that are gained from drinking Alkaline water. Human beings are born alkaline but we are soon exposed to an acidic diet through what we eat and drink throughout our life. By drinking alkaline water your body can experience miraculous changes and health benefits.

It is well known among athletic trainers that chronic over-acidity is the underlying cause of pain, inflammation and poor performance. The body draws upon alkaline minerals stored in the bones and tissues to buffer the over-acid state caused by the food.

Most athletes are locked into a dietary pattern that is acid-producing. They do not consume enough alkaline, mineral-rich foods, such as nuts, fruits, and vegetables. Instead their diets contain high amounts of acid-forming foods, such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy, energy bars sweetened with high fructose corn syrup or other unhealthy sugars, and acidic energy or sports drinks. Because of this dietary imbalance, they may be at risk to increased acidosis which affects overall health and sports performance. Since proper hydration is a key factor in preventing exercise fatigue, consuming restructured ionized.

The use of ion-rich alkaline water is proven to increase competitiveness and overall performance in world class athletes. A diet that supports alkalinity is also recommended by sports nutritionists. Consuming ionized, alkaline water will reduce the accumulation of acidity in exercising muscles, improving work-out intensity and recovery time.

Former Denver Bronco, Bill Romanowski, was introduced to the power of “ionized” water late in his career to maintain his competitive edge. Competitive bodybuilder, personal trainer, author and speaker, Wade T. Lightheart, advocates the use of Kangen WaterTM produced from the Enagic Leveluk SD501, and credits it for motivating him to come out of retirement. (watch their videos and testimonials here…)

KANGEN WATER TEST:

We had seven athletes who we classified as “crampers”.

We started the week before our 9/26/09 game and continued for the rest of the season.

No cramping episodes from any of the seven during this time. We did experience cramping episodes from athletes not on the program.
They all loved it because they felt like they could drink and drink and never feel bloated.” – Dan Willyuette – Martial Arts Instructor

Muscle Soreness – by Dave S., Melbourne Beach, FL

I was introduced to Kangen water 3 months ago and immediately experienced benefits after only one day. I was complaining about muscle soreness and stiffness in my joints for the past 4 weeks, due to an increase in intensity in my workouts.

After drinking the water for one day, I awoke the next morning to find 90% of my soreness and stiffness was gone. I then began to research the science behind the water ionizer and was convinced enough to purchase the SD501 for myself.

After drinking the water for 2 more months my cholesterol came down from 255 to 178. My doctor had been trying to get me on medication for over 2 years but I refused and tried every natural way I could find to get it down. Every six months I would have my blood checked and the doctor told me it was still high and that I was just one of those people who’s liver just produces too much cholesterol.

After he saw the sudden drop in my numbers he wanted to know what I had done. I told him about the water and he was very intrigued and told me to just keep doing what I’m doing. I keep drinking the water and now have noticed the arthritis in my knees is less painful and I can now play sports that I haven’t been able to play in years such, as Judo and softball. I now tell everyone about my experience.

Amazing improvements in performance have taken place for athletes who have introduced Kangen Water® into their lifestyle and training regime.

Kangen Water has changed the possibilities for numerous athletes. Marathoners are running better times than when they were 20. Hockey players are coming off the ice with no body aches. Gymnasts are more flexible. Even weekend warriors are getting better muscle definition with less strain.

Effects Of Kangen Water® for Athletes?

There are numerous effects that Kangen Water can provide for muscular movement, performance and flexibility. Every breath you take, every time a muscle contracts, there are metabolic acids that are produced, such as lactic and pyruvic acid. The presence of these acids creates a burning sensation in the muscle, muscle fatigue and muscle weakness. This prevents further exertion of the muscle until recovery takes place.

The more water that you have available in the tissues, the easier it is for these acids to be removed from the muscle tissue. This can hasten recovery time and lessen micro scar tissue and weakness from the metabolic acids. When this water is Kangen Water®, then the higher alkalinity will reduce acidic residue even further and faster, with less possibility of injury. Athletes and trainers know that even small changes in pH can really affect performance, because muscles do their best work in a very narrow pH range. This is why when metabolites lower pH muscle function is reduced and the production of ATP energy is also reduced. So the more acidity that is present, the less muscles can contract. Even the electrical stimulus necessary for peak performance drops significantly.

Fitness and Health

The important thing to know is that just because an athlete is fit, doesn’t mean he’s healthy. In fact, many athletes suffer from chronic injury, inflammatory disorders, even early cancer. The high level of metabolic acids chronically present in muscle tissue could be a strong factor. Combining Kangen alkaline water with an alkaline-dense diet is the answer. By increasing alkalinity and reducing acidic byproducts, the body’s buffering systems can work more efficiently and effectively.
Getting away from the high-protein, high carb, energy bar, sports drinks pattern and turning to more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts can be more than supplying food; this new pattern can be therapy.

Super Hydration and Athletic Performance

The super hydration that is the hallmark of restructured Kangen Water makes performance amazing. Electrical signaling is lightening fast, more oxygen gets to the cell increasing VO2 max and acidic waste that is often stored in fat cells is easily removed. And this type of hydration is unique because it reaches every cell. Hydration drinks used by athletes have high levels of acidity, which rob the body of alkalinizing minerals and steal vital calcium from bones, cartilage and tissues.

Enagic Kangen Water® SD501 Demo 3 Properties of Kangen Water Anti-Oxidation Micro-Clustering Alkalinization

Susan Lark, MD, The Chemistry of Success: Secrets of Peak Performance

In her book, The Chemistry of Success: Secrets of Peak Performance, Susan Lark, MD, talks about the role of acid/alkaline balance in peak performance and health. The following is her assessment of alkaline water.

“The benefits of the alkaline water created through electrolysis far exceed just its ability to gently raise the pH of the cells and tissues of the body and to neutralize acids. Because the alkaline water has gained a significant number of free electrons through the electrolysis process, it is able to donate these electrons to active oxygen free radicals in the body, thereby becoming a super antioxidant. By donating its excess free electrons, alkaline water is able to block the oxidation of normal tissue by free oxygen radicals.”

She continues by noting that another significant benefit of the electrolysis process is that the cluster size of the alkaline water is reduced by about 50 percent from the cluster size of tap water. “This allows ionized alkaline water to be much more readily absorbed by the body, thereby increasing the water’s hydrating ability and its ability to carry its negative ions and alkalizing effect to all the cells and tissues of the body.

“If you are overly acidic, an alkaline water device can provide a safe, gentle, and effective way of restoring the pH balance of all the cells in your body as well as providing excess free electrons to act as super antioxidants,” Lark recommends.

Most people, including most athletes, do not consume enough alkaline mineral-rich foods, such as nuts, fruits, and vegetable. Instead their diets contain high amounts of acid-forming foods, such as meat, fish, poultry, eggs, and dairy. Because of this dietary imbalance, they may be at risk for increased acidosis that affects overall health and sports performance.

Since proper hydration is also a key factor in preventing exercise fatigue, consuming ionized Kangen Water before, during and after exercise can help.

In addition to a compromised performance, not consuming enough water can lead to muscle cramps, general tiredness, and a lack of coordination.

In short, an athlete who is adequately hydrated will almost always perform better than one who is not.

Is Your Body too Acidic?

Imagine if physicians and other health-care professionals routinely ignored a fundamental aspect of health. That is just what happens when it comes to recognizing imbalances in the body’s pH (acid-alkaline ratio)

Conventional medicine ignores pH balance — while holistic doctors recognize that our bodies are continually striving for this balance, and that chronic imbalance leaves us susceptible to disease. Most important: Acid-alkaline balance is easy to regulate. You can make very simple changes to your diet — and improve your body’s pH balance within hours.

pH stands for “potential of hydrogen.” The concentration of hydrogen atoms in a solution determines its pH value, measured on a scale of 0 to 14, with lower numbers indicating higher acidity. Water, which is considered neutral (neither acidic nor alkaline), has a pH of 7. (To do a simple pH balance test yourself, see below.)

The body’s pH balance strongly influences the risk for osteoporosis, sarcopenia (muscle loss), fractures and kidney stone formation — and possibly diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, thyroid problems, cancer and other insidious conditions.

When the body’s fluids become too acidic, minerals are pulled out of bones and tissues to compensate — leading, in the long term, to thinner bones and lower muscle mass. Overly acidic tissues also make one susceptible to inflammation (a known risk for many chronic diseases), impair enzymatic reactions in cells and overload the lymphatic system, impeding the body’s natural detoxification process.

UNDERSTANDING ACID AND ALKALINE

Whether or not you realize it, you already understand some of the basics of acidity and alkalinity. Dill pickles get their tartness from vinegar, an acid. And milk of magnesia, which is alkaline, can help settle an upset (overly acidic) stomach.

Physicians learn in medical school to recognize the symptoms of renal acidosis (a sign of kidney failure) and ketoacidosis (muscle tissue breakdown in people with type 1 diabetes). They also recognize that when urine is more alkaline, you are better protected from developing a certain type of kidney stone. However, doctors often miss more subtle signs of low-grade metabolic acidosis (roughly translated as a chronically acidic system) that can affect long-term health.

How common is this? There are no clear statistics, but my hunch is that low-grade metabolic acidosis affects the majority of people, based on the fact that a healthful diet makes for a healthful pH — and most Americans consume too much salt and not enough fruits and vegetables. Most of the patients I test have acidic readings. With healthful changes, their health problems often improve as their urine readings (which reflect blood pH) become more alkaline. (The opposite condition, a chronically alkaline system, is called alkalosis, and it is extremely rare.)

NUTRIENTS THAT AFFECT YOUR PH

Unfortunately, the importance of acid-alkaline balance to one’s health is controversial, which helps explain why it is not a more common part of health and wellness discussions. The original research was published almost a century ago, and there has not been much scientific study done since then. Books written on the subject rely on anecdotal evidence — and many contradict one another. In recent years, researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, have begun to establish a sound scientific foundation for understanding the health problems associated with chronic low-grade acidosis.

The dietary problem is not one of eating single foods that are acidic, such as tomatoes or oranges. Rather, it’s how several specific nutrients in foods influence your blood pH, which is optimal at 7.35 to 7.45. Even small increases in the acidity of your blood can have pronounced ill effects on your body’s cells.

Helpful nutrients. Foods rich in calcium, magnesium and especially potassium or bicarbonate are alkaline forming, meaning that they shift the body toward a neutral or alkaline pH. This pH enables bones to hold on to calcium, which helps keep them strong. Fresh fruits and vegetables are major dietary sources of alkaline potassium (raisins and spinach are especially rich).

Problematic nutrients. Foods rich in chloride, phosphate and sulfate are acid forming, meaning that they shift the body toward greater acidity. Any food with added salt (sodium chloride) should be suspect, including processed foods in jars, bottles, cans and boxes, as well as restaurant meals, especially fast foods.

BAD FOR THE BONES…AND MORE

When it comes to pH, the kidneys rule. They play a central role in maintaining the body’s pH. When acid-yielding foods lower the body’s pH, the kidneys coordinate efforts to buffer that acidity. Bones release calcium and magnesium to reestablish alkalinity, and muscles are broken down to produce ammonia, which is strongly alkaline. By the time the response is complete, your bone minerals and broken-down muscle get excreted in urine. Over a lifetime, this slow breakdown of bone and muscle catches up with people. In fact, acidosis seems to increase with age, which may reflect a lifelong poor diet. Researchers now believe that weak muscles set the stage for falls and fractures in the elderly.

The kidney stone connection: When our bones release calcium to buffer acidity, there’s a risk that some of the calcium will separate and form a kidney stone.

It is ironic. Millions of people eat calcium-rich dairy products — milk, cheese and yogurt — in an effort to maintain their bones. But most dairy products are acid-forming. That might partially explain why the US has high rates of osteoporosis, even though Americans consume huge quantities of dairy. Eating an overabundance of meat, poultry and seafood is also problematic. Reason: The breakdown of protein releases sulfuric acid, further contributing to an acidic pH. Even whole grains are acid-forming. Trick: Breathing slowly helps to reduce acidity.

EATING FOR A BALANCED PH

Eating to maintain a neutral or slightly alkaline pH is easier than you might think, as a pH-friendly diet is consistent with other healthy eating habits. When my patients eat more healthful foods, their main health problems diminish and numerous other unexplained problems (low energy levels, joint and muscle pain, rashes and acne) start to improve.Here’s what I recommend…

Limit your salt. Salt consists of sodium and chloride — the combination of the two molecules sets the stage for low-grade metabolic acidosis. Healthy people require only up to 1,300 mg of sodium daily. When grocery shopping, read food labels carefully. Good rule: Opt for fresh foods over anything that comes in a package.

Eat lots of veggies. Strive to make one-third of your diet consist of fresh or frozen vegetables and fruits. A study published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutritionfound that high consumption of potassium, found in fruits and vegetables, and the resulting more alkaline pH, were strongly linked to muscle preservation in people age 65 and older. Beware: Most canned vegetables contain added salt, and some canned fruits contain added sugar. Another good rule: Fill half of your plate with vegetables, one-fourth with fish or other lean protein, and the remaining one-fourth with a small amount of starch (such as a sweet potato or brown rice).

Stay hydrated. That means drinking mostly water, not soft drinks, alcohol or caffeinated beverages. There is water in fruits and vegetables, too. Remember: It is especially important to drink more water if you fall short on your daily intake of vegetables and fruits.Interesting: A squeeze of lemon in your water adds taste and has an alkalinizing effect in your body.

Healthful “green” drinks can help balance pH. These drinks, which feature ingredients such as wheatgrass, barley grass and chlorella, come as powders and can be mixed in a glass of cold water or diluted juice at home.

STRENGTHEN WITH SUPPLEMENTS

Studies have shown that supplements of potassium bicarbonate and especially potassium citrate can counteract an acid-forming diet and reverse osteoporosis. In a study published in Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, 161 postmenopausal women with low bone mass were given 1,080 mg of potassium citrate or 2,250 mg of potassium chloride daily for one year. Results: At the end of the study, the control group (those taking potassium chloride) showed an average bone-density loss at the lower spine of 1%, while the group taking potassium citrate had a nearly 2% increase at the lower spine and the hip. This group also excreted less calcium in their urine.

Warning: By law, supplement companies cannot include more than 99 mg of potassium per daily dose. Large doses can alter the sodium-potassium ratio too quickly and lead to an irregular heartbeat in patients with kidney disease and those taking cardiovascular medications. (This is not an issue for healthy people.) Don’t worry about eating too much potassium, though — the potassium in foods (such as bananas) is absorbed more slowly than the potassium in supplements.

As we have seen, eating more fruits and vegetables is an easy way to tip your body’s natural pH into the right balance. Because these foods provide a variety of important nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fiber, eating ample amounts of vegetables and fruits is simply the smartest way to live.

A general rule: All fresh vegetables and fruits help to maintain a neutral or slightly alkaline pH. Most other foods are acid-forming, potentially weakening bones and muscles. The key is striking a balance by eating a good mix of foods. Simply put:Consume a lot of fruits and vegetables, and not too many acid-forming foods, and your body will naturally find the right pH balance.

Acid-forming foods include beef, bread (white and rye), cereal (all, including whole grains), milk, pork, rice (white), pasta, potatoes.

Very acid-forming foods include alcohol, artificial sweeteners (aspartame, saccharine), bread (whole wheat), cheese, chicken, coffee and black tea, eggs, fish (especially cod, herring and trout), nuts (especially peanuts and walnuts), processed (soft) cheeses, rice (brown), sausage.

Alkaline-forming foods include fruits, vegetables.

Very alkaline-forming foods include coconut water, dates, raisins, spinach.
