According to the CDC (Center for Disease Control), sixty two percent of American adults are either overweight or obese. This is a stark figure that puts into perspective the health problems evident in our society, and has created a huge demand for weight loss products and dietary programs. In fact, according to the same institution, a third of all adult Americans suffer from obesity !
Obesity causes and contributes to a huge range of acute and chronic health problems. This places a great deal of pressure on families, individuals, doctors, and hospitals. The end result of this is that our society is simply not healthy enough as a whole and needs to take a new approach to the problem.
Looking Beyond the Diet Industry
The sad truth is that the obesity epidemic has created a huge weight loss industry that essentially profits from the failures of people to actually lose weight long-term. This has also resulted in many people not trusting in diets and healthy foods in general, which exacerbates the problem.
Recent thinking suggests that our bodies actually benefit if we ingest more alkaline foods, including legumes, nuts, fruits, and vegetables. In fact, many people swear by the so-called alkaline diet, and report that it provides the following benefits:
- Better and deeper sleep,
- More energy,
- Better digestion,
- More elastic skin, and
- Less minor illnesses, such as colds and flus.
At the very least, the diet suggested is in keeping with many conventional diet plans that allow a person to lose weight and maintain good eating habits.
Our alkaline bottled water is rated at pH 9.0 (very alkaline), and because it contains negative hydrogen ions, it also acts as a powerful anti-oxidant. By getting rid of the harmful oxidizing products in your body, you protect your cells from damage. We think that this is a great complement to a properly conducted alkaline diet and looks beyond the mere fads of the weight loss industry.
