“What are the Alkaline Water side effects?” Many people ask this. We have all seen the pharmaceutical commercials and their insanely long lists of side effects. We are programmed, it seems, to expect some sort of negative response when taking anything. So what are the side effects of this “Miracle Water”?
Most often people do report Alkaline Water side effects such as more energy. Softer, more vibrant skin. Faster recovery after workouts. Many experience weight loss and less aches and pains. Most people also report better sleep, and feeling better rested upon waking. Many people report better bowel movements and a ‘lighter feeling”.
But are these considered “ alkaline water side effects”?
Often slow and subtle are the effects of anything natural. People may or may not notice drastic changes at the onset of drinking Alkaline, Anti-oxidant, Restructured Water. Because ‘natural’ means to work with your body, the usual drastic effects we have come to expect, such as those that come from a chemical induced drug, are less drastic or dramatic. At least…. initially.
The long term effects of the subtle beneficial changes, however will be very noticeable over the years to come. Like drops in a bucket, eventually that bucket will overflow. Softer skin now means less wrinkles in years to come. Better bowel movements now mean less toxicity in our systems in the coming years. Better sleep in the short term looks like less oxidative stress in the future. This in turn looks like less disease and ‘ailments’.
So while the long term “alkaline water side effects” of optimal hydration are drastic, even if the short term effects are often so subtle it is hard to put your finger on. Often I hear stories of people who ‘go off the water’ or who take a vacation and are without “Their Water” for a period of time and suddenly realize a noticeable difference in their energy level, their bowels, their skin or often all of the above. Not to mention aches and pains that you DON’T notice when you don’t have, but seriously notice when you DO.
Having water that works more efficiently in your body just seems to make everything work – well, more efficiently. This usually gives one an over-all sense of well being that is often hard to put your finger on, and, for some, not even all that noticeable at first. Often we hear these amazing stories about people using the water and having some unbelievable over-night success, which is wonderful. The level of one’s starting health, will of course determine the noticeable effects. But for many who are “not sick” (meaning they have no overt symptoms of any kind) what might they feel? What are the alkaline water side effects? Are there any negative ones to consider?
If you consider ridding your body of toxic waste ‘negative’, then, yes.
Your body stores toxins in your fat and tissues, and as these cells get hydrated and cleaned, these toxins can sometimes be ‘felt’ on the way out. Short lived, though they are, people do, occasionally notice a slight headache or more frequent bowel movements while their body is eliminating these toxins. These effects generally last a couple of days and then go away, usually taking inflammation from storing said toxins with it. Since everyone’s’ body is different, it is hard to determine what effects your body might have. But at the end of the day, restructured though it is, it IS still “just water” and can have no negative side effects, and unless you have Congestive Heart Failure or Renal Kidney Failure, (in which case your doctor will have limited the amount of water you should consume), there are NO ‘contra-indications’ to drinking Alkaline, Ionized, Restructured Water. Nor are there any negative side effects.
Here’s to your health!
