Acidosis: Almost any health care provider, alternative or mainstream, will agree that mosthealth problems, including cancer, begin in an acid environment within the body. Many laypeople already know this. What most people don’t know is that if your pH drops below 5.8 you cannot absorb vitamins A, B, E, F, and K. Nor can you absorb valuable minerals like sulphur, potassium, calcium, vanadium, chromium, iron, or zinc. This is irrelevant of how much of these supplements you ingest. Give it some thought, you may literally be flushing huge amounts of money down the toilet, so to speak. The majority of people we check have a urine pH below 5.8 and don’t realize they are wasting their money on supplements. Restructured alkaline water is the fastest and most efficient way to alkalize your body. Weare meant to be alkaline on the inside of our bodies. If you have any doubt about this I suggest you read Alkalize or Die by Dr. Theodore A. Baroody, available in most health stores.

Dehydration has been linked to many of our modern diseases, too numerous to mention here. For detailed research on this fact you should read Your Body’s Many Cries for Water by F. Batmanghelidj, M.D. This book will help you understand the vital importance of water. All water does not hydrate efficiently.
