The man who wrote the Oath that all doctors swear by even to this day, Hippocrates, wrote that “Water contributes much towards health”. Millennia have passed since the Father of Medicine spoke these words but they are as true today as they were back then. In ancient Greek mythology Ambrosia was used by the Greek gods to look young forever. Ambrosia was described as very cleansing and purifying to all those that bathed in it and could turn back the hands of time. There is only one liquid on our planet that has these unbelievable attributes and that is water.
Let’s be honest we all want to look and feel young forever but most of us are weary of the medical procedures that promise us permanent youth. Going under the knife for plastic surgery is expensive and many people are not satisfied with the end result as it looks less than natural. The good news is something that has been under your nose the entire time can be the solution.
However the problem is many of us do not consume enough water and are in a constant state of dehydration unbeknownst to us. When we are not properly hydrated our blood becomes more acidic and becomes more viscous, this hinders blood circulation. In addition the blood also becomes less effective at removing toxins and carbon dioxide and will not be able to oxygenate the tissue. So how does this translate to our outer appearance? The accumulation of waste and toxins in our cells can cause them to die hence speeding up the ageing process. Dehydration causes the skin to sag, hair loss, memory loss, declining energy levels and even more serious issues like heart attacks.
One of the main benefits of water is the removal of waste and toxins from the body. It also makes our skin tighter and smoother, making us look younger. It can also act as a lubricant in the joint spaces and help prevent arthritis. The onset of diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease can be slowed down and keeping your body hydrated can prevent the loss of memory.
The only thing better than water at slowing down the effects of aging is alkaline water. Alkaline water is water with a pH of 9+. The biggest benefit of alkaline water is its anti-oxidant qualities. When an apple is cut and left for too long it turns brown, this is due to oxidation. When the molecule loses an electron it becomes a free radical which in turn steals an electron from another molecule, forming more free radicals. It’s a vicious cycle that can eventually cause cellular damage. Free radicals are known to be a causal factor in just about every disease including cancer. They’re also a major factor in pre-mature aging. Oxidation is a part of life and occurs every time we breathe and is made worse by factors like pollution, chemicals, junk food, smoking and stress. This is where antioxidants come in; they have extra electrons that can be donated without it becoming unstable. These antioxidants go looking for free radicals and donate the lost electron, thus creating a stable, harmless molecule. In other words drinking alkaline water can slow down the effects of aging and lead to better skin. Alkafresh is Sri Lanka’s first and only bottled alkaline water.
