Alkaline water is negatively charged and an “antioxidant.” Antioxidants reduce cellular and DNA damage caused by free radicals.
Getting older and aging is not the same thing. Getting older relates to the passage of time, while aging relates to the breakdown of tissues in the body.
The not-so-pleasant outward signs of aging include wrinkles, sagging skin and weight gain. Getting older by itself does not cause aging. Aging is the result of damage to body tissues by organic acids and by active oxygen (free radicals).
Facts about aging baby boomers should know:
Organic acids in the body break down tissues, causing aging and age-related diseases.
Common waste products in the body include acetic acid, carbonic acid, fatty acids, lactic acid and uric acid.
Active oxygen (free radicals) causes oxidative damage to molecules within cells of the body.
Free radicals are associated with a numerous diseases, including arthritis, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.
Drinking alkaline water can help neutralize these acids and scavenge free radicals in the body.
