(NaturalNews) The chemical reactions in all plants and animals that support life take place in an ionized water medium. Water not only provides the medium to make these life sustaining reactions possible, but water itself also is often an important reactant or product of these reactions. The entire chemistry of life is based around water chemistry.

At the cellular level, water plays a significant role alongside cholesterol and saturated fat as the very bonding adhesives in the cell membrane. Together, these important structures keep the cell strong and help it to resist toxic and infectious invasion.

Some of the many critical roles water plays in the body include:
1.A medium for every metabolic (energy producing) reaction in the body
2.A generator of hydro-electric and magnet energy within the cell giving the body the power to live and function (the bodies most efficient energy sources)
3.A fluid to capture and pull out toxins in the urine and feces
4.Lubricates and protects joints, organs, & tissues
5.Expands sarcomeres (muscle cell units) allowing for optimal cross-bridge attachment and greater muscular power, strength, & endurance.
6.Electrolyte balance within and out of the cell.

Most people in our society carry an excess of acidic wastes. This creates a significant burden in the body. The blood stream must be at a 7.365 pH level, if it rises or falls one tenth of a pH unit it creates an extreme emergency. If blood pH moves two tenths either way, it's lethal. Fortunately, our body has a very sensitive buffer system with our respiration rate and kidney excretion to maintain blood pH. With chronic acidity, these systems get overrun and the body must turn to alkaline minerals within tissues to provide the necessary buffer.

Result: Alkaline buffering minerals are stripped from:
Our bones & teeth (calcium) Our muscles & nerves (potassium)
Our arteries (magnesium) Our joints (sodium)
Excess acidity = stored in fat cells

Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism January 2009

"When fruits and vegetables are metabolized they add bicarbonate, an alkaline compound, to the body," said lead author Dr. Dawson Hughes. "Our study found that bicarbonate had a favourable effect on bone reabsorption and calcium excretion. This suggests that increasing the alkali content of the diet may attenuate bone loss in healthy older adults."

Other research has shown that cancer thrives in an acidic, low oxygen environment. Heart disease and blood vessel disorders are related to low magnesium levels in the smooth muscle within the arteries. Joint degeneration is attributed to poor sodium and fluid content within the synovium that surrounds the joint. All of these effects are due to the common cause of excess acidic wastes within the tissues of our body.

High-altitude mountainous cultures such as the Hunzas in Pakistan and the Vilcabambans of Southern Ecuador have some of the healthiest, longest living people in the world. Many have lived for over 120, even up to 150, strong and vibrant years. One of the unique things about these people has to do with their water supply. Most of their water comes into the villages from snow melt where it picked up highly alkaline minerals in the natural colloidal form as it passed through the mountains on its way down to the villages. Therefore, the water these vibrant cultures are consuming contains an alkaline pH. Based on this notion, water with high amounts of alkaline elements is one of the best ways of regaining your pH balance.
