Water is our body's most important nutrient and it is involved in every body function
In fact it makes up 70- 75% of our total body weight.
Water helps to maintain body temperature, metabolize body fat, aids in digestion, lubricates and cushions organs, transports nutrients, and flushes toxins from your body.
Do You Know?
Our blood pH must stay within a very narrow range or serious illness and death can result? Which also means that we need about pH 7.0 for our body.
When our tissues become acidic, that in turn can result in impaired function of some major systems, including organ, digestion, skin integrity, and repair from injury
How Do We Consume Alkaline?
Sad to say, most of the food that we love most are acidic.
Now that I have my own house, I realize the importance of eating healthily.
I used to think that by eating more fruits and vegetables are adequate, but no realizing that the food that we consumed are so much mire acidic than I thought.
Health body starts from washing the food!
Looking at the chart above, I was really disheartened to see that I cannot enjoy a lot of food that I love. I really don't wish my body to tolerate the acidic level anymore.
I can't be eating the veg n fruits but no meat. I still need my rice and meat daily!
How about drinking Alkaline Water?
Have you heard about Alkaline Water?
Most of our health problems today may have one common cause –
Acid - Alkaline Imbalance
People are generally becoming more aware that the medical profession deals more in “sickness” rather than “wellness” and making the choice to self- manage their future health. They realise that it is necessary to cleanse and detoxify their bodies in order to create an internal environment that does not support illness and disease. Starwater's Alkaline water (RAID)
Restores the body's pH balance
Acts as a powerful antioxidant
Improves cellular hydration
Detoxifies your body
Restores the body's PH
The food we eat provides the fuel to give us energy. When energy is created, minerals are burned and waste is generated which has to be expelled from the body. This waste is acidic. If it is not completely expelled, it begins to accumulate and creates an environment inside our bodies that supports illness and disease.
(Your body can only process certain amount of acids so it is possible to overload the system and for the body to become acidic.)
Alkaline water can neutralize the acidity of the body caused by stress, modern diet, air pollution, and many bottled waters. It restores the PH in the body and detoxifies wastes while providing your body with much needed immunity boost!
It is recommended to drink 4-6 glasses of slightly alkaline water daily (8.5 – 9.5 PH) to detoxify and maintain good health.
Acts as a powerful antioxidant
Just like rust on a car, oxidation can cause damage to cells and may contribute to aging. This oxidation caused by active oxygen species or free radicals cause damage which could bring about conditions such as heart disease, cancer, arthritis, cataract and a weak immune system.
Antioxidants work by binding to the free radicals transforming them into non-damaging compounds and can repair cellular damage. Antioxidants are primarily found in fruits and vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, melons, apples, blueberries, tomatoes, beets, spinach, grapes, etc. Water ionizers produce ionized ALKALINE antioxidant water, not just high pH water. There is a huge difference. These are the same antioxidant properties contained in such healthy fruits and vegetables which have been praised for their ability to fight cancer and diseases.
The most powerful property of this water is its antioxidant property. The pH negative charge (OH-) of the water or negative ions act as a scavenger water that helps to eliminate damaging positive and oxidizing free radicals within our body. And because our bodies are typically over-oxidized, our bodies are thus starved for negative ions giving this property its detoxifying ability.
Improves Cellular Hydration
We are all exposed to thousands of toxins and chemicals on a daily basis at work, in the home, through the air we breathe, our food and water supply, and through the use of pharmaceutical drugs. In addition, we are eating more sugar and processed foods than ever before in human history and regularly abuse our bodies with various stimulants and sedatives.
Drinking Alkaline Antioxidant Water will help detoxify your colon by eliminating free radicals, which boosts your immunity to disease.
The scientific truth that alkaline neutralises acid is a basic natural process that requires no clinical testing. Alkaline water has no nutritional or medical value to cure disease; all it really but essentially does is neutralise the acidic wastes and breaks them down for elimination by the kidneys.
Don't let bad health rob you of your life pleasures; your body was originally designed to heal itself. Live your life to the fullest!
Introducing you STARWATER
Water need not be that tasteless colourless liquid just used to quench thirst. Water can be healthy, and the right type of water can even be beneficial to health. Drinking Alkaline Water from our latest Star Water ionizers are produced by our focused on bringing you the best of health, beauty and flavours.
One of the question that I asked was, what is the difference between distilled water and alkaline water?
In Fact, distilled water is just water that run through the purifier, but StarWater produce alkaline water using distilled water with 5 platinised-titanium electrode plates
So distilled water is the 1st level of purification, but Starwater tap water into Alkaline Antioxidant Water (Alkaline Ionic Water) for Drinking and Acidic Water (Oxidation Water) for Beauty and Sanitizing purposes. The Alkaline Antioxidant Water (AIW) gives you an abundance of antioxidant and electron rich medium for consumption (-ORP) to reduce cells damage whereas the Acidic Water is Oxidized Water which is very effective for sterilisation (cleaning) and external use.
A few weeks ago, I was invited by OMYSG to the event held by StarWater.
While waiting the event to start, we were served Alkaline Water.
You must be wondering how does it taste or how different does it taste when compared with our normal drinking tap water.
NO, no difference at all. No weird taste or any density difference.
So, the event started off with acidic/alkaline test of the various types of drinks.
Left to Right (the more red, the more acidic)
Bottled Drinking Water: Greenish Yellow
100Plus: Yellowish Orange
Tap Water: Blue
Alkaline Water: Purple
Are you wondering if we are acidic?
I was blown away when I saw the results!
He started off with a glass of alkaline water (purple)
and after blowing into the glass, the water actually turned orangey!
We were then taught how to include Alkaline in our daily cooking, and I'm glad that Chef Anna was there to impart her skills to us!
(my tummy was growling)
First dish of the evening!
Korean Pear Salad
This Salad is so easy to make n fuss free, more importantly, the taste is superb and so apt for our humid weather.
Apparently, by washing the ingredients with the Alkaline water, it will actually make the food tastier!
Chicken Herbal Soup
Even more 养身, 很补！
Never a fan of brown rice, but this rice tasted sweet and chewy!
As a tea lover, do you always have to wait a while before the tea diffused?
I was surprise how the tea diffused in a couple of seconds in the alkaline water.
Iced Honey Lemon Mint Cooler
Looks nice on the photo and tasted fantastic!!!
Never like peppermint in my drinks, but this really taste super good! Thirst quenching and so good for the crazy weather in Singapore.
Cooking has never been so easy and healthy, the hubz got 口福!
Mouth watering? I will post the recipe up on my blog soon!
Do you know that this machine can even dispense BEAUTY WATER?
This is the water that we should use to clean our Face Daily cos it does not cause oxidation!
OMG, as a beauty junkie like me, this is another factor that is attracting my attention too.
Imagine washing your face with the perfect pH water, I think my skin will thank me in years to come.
Ending the post with photos of the people behind StarWater. Can you believe that Chef Anna is already 50++?
She started her journey with StarWater many years back and she has never regretted her choice.
Time to look after our body, we will only have ourselves to thank for a healthy and good body.
Thank you OMY and StarWater for the invite.
