Antioxidant Alkaline Water Benefits Cardiovascular Disease
Our bodies are naturally wonderfully engineered; when our blood pressure is elevated or if we have high levels of cholesterol deposited
in our vascular system it is our body's natural compensating mechanism for a deficiency. Increasingly many natural practitioners are pointing at acidosis as being the root problem. Our blood has a buffer of sodium bicarbonate to neutralise acid wastes from our cells as waste products of our metabolism. When this alkaline buffer level is depleted then we suffer from the problems of acidosis. According to Sang Whang in his book Reverse Aging Dr Kancho Kunimaka, one of the pioneers of alkaline water treatment in Japan, states that virtually without exception, patients with high blood pressure have an acidosis condition. He has many successful clinical trials where acid free high pH alkaline water lowered blood pressure. There are several plausible explanations for this phenomenon. Since the higher pH blood contains excess oxygen, the heart doesn't have to work so hard. Another factor may be that the viscosity of the higher pH blood is low so that the heart does not need to pump as hard. A further reason may be that the calcium ions in alkaline water may be dissolving plaque and cholesterol build up in the artery walls, thus opening up the passage He further states If your blood pressure is always high, chances are that your arteries are getting narrow and it will take a long time, possibly a year or more, for that blood pressure to come down by means of alkaline water. It takes time to dissolve plaque and cholesterol build up but eventually it will work. This slow process has no side effects. It lowers blood pressure by eliminating the very causes of the high blood pressure. Acid waste in the blood is believed to make scratches in the inside of the blood vessels. The body's defence mechanism is to patch these injuries to the blood vessel walls with fatty plaques to prevent life threatening leaks. Hence it is extremely important to reduce this acidic condition by neutralising excess acid wastes. Professor Won H Kim in his book Water of Life; a cure for your body say'sIrregular blood circulation can be called the beginning of all adult-onset ailments. The major cause for this comes from acidic waste materials which get piled up on vascular walls or clog capillary vessels. Crucial organs need a smooth supply of blood, but piled up waste on walls makes vessels get narrower. This coupled with clogged capillaries, results in raised blood pressure to supply blood. This is the general principle behind occurrence of hypertension. Alkaline reduced water resolves hypertension originating from residues of waste on vascular walls. Alkaline reduced water does more than just decrease the acidic wastes by alkalising the blood: it
is effective for hypertension because its superior power to conduct surface activity can dissolve waste matter stuck to vascular wall's.
