Body Performance and Alkaline Water

AP_eagles_redskins_nt_130926_33x16_1600.jpg635969979732636473-1340938375_four_people_exercising_on_treadmill_at_gym_42-16978656.jpg

Whether playing sports or exercising, you are consuming more oxygen and metabolizing energy through muscle work. This process creates free radicals, lactic acid and a mild metabolic acidosis. Have you ever exercised and felt like you were going to puke?  Your body goes into a process of trying to detox or rid itself of toxins stored in your body. Drinking alkaline, ionized, mineral hydrate water can help ameliorate all three of these byproducts of exercise.

I attend local races and schools, set up a table, and hand out free samples of Kangen water, to help educate others on the benefits.  My goal is to make people aware of what they are drinking when it comes to bottled water.

What is so great about Kangen water when talking about exercising or sports?  For one, trainers love Alkaline water! Alkalizing the body is a well-known method of increasing sports endurance. Studies on the effects of alkaline water on exercise show that alkaline water provides these benefits.

  • Improved Hydration
  • Greater Endurance
  • Faster Recovery
  • More Energy

Improved Hydration – Alkaline water hydrates better than plain water.

Greater endurance – Alkalinity counter- acts lactic-acid induced muscle fatigue

Faster Recovery – Alkaline water helps neutralize and flush lactic acid from the body after exercise.

More Energy – The antioxidant effect of alkaline water has been shown to help muscles use oxygen more efficiently. The improved oxygen uptake allows muscles to use aerobic metabolism more efficiently. Athletes who participated in research studies reported that drinking alkaline water made their workouts feel less strenuous.

HOW You Can Drink SAFE & Healthy Water In Owensboro Ky And Surrounding Counties

15000848_880383938764897_6723036536485530913_o.jpgWheatgrass Juice Bar is now serving Kangen Water!  They offer full membership prices of coming to fill up a gallon to membership for the month as well as purchasing a machine for your own home.  It has come just in time!

According to recent reports please read:

new report says some Kentuckians could be drinking a cancer-causing chemical called chromium-6.

Chromium-3 is an essential human dietary nutrient and can be found in many vegetables, fruits, meats, grains and yeast. It is known to enhance insulin, as well as help metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Chromium-6, however, is a toxic form of the mineral. While this form does occur naturally in the environment, from the erosion of chromium deposits, chromium-6 can also be produced by industrial processes. The EPA has reported instances of chromium-6 being released into the environment from industrial pollution — leakage, poor storage or inadequate industrial waste disposal practices.

Studies of chromium-6 have established that breathing the particles can cause lung cancer. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration sets strict limits for levels of airborne chromium-6 in the workplace. The chemical has also been connected to liver damage, reproductive problems and developmental harm, according to the EWG, and presents greater risks to infants and children, people who take antacids, and people with poorly functioning livers.

drinking-water-is-it-safeThe Environmental Working Group, a public health advocacy group, analyzed data collected from samples of drinking water from all 50 states by the Environmental Protection Agency. Of the 85 Kentucky counties tested, the highest levels of chromium-6 were found in the samples from Daviess County.

The average level of chromium-6 found in Daviess County was 1.12 parts per billion, which according to Bill Walker, EWG managing editor, equates to a drop of water in an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

The EPA has imposed a limit for chromium of 100 parts per billion. But that includes both chromium-6 and chromium-3. The latter is an essential element for human function. However, too much can cause skin rashes.

Walker said the EPA bases its limit on the toxicity of chromium-3, not the more dangerous chromium-6.

“It’s two things mixed together and dumped into drinking water, and EPA says we have a standard to cover the combination of these things,” Walker said. “But don’t have a standard for the individual one, which happens to be more dangerous.

Chromium-6 is the carcinogen that was mentioned in the movie “Erin Brockovich.” It is found in coal-burning power plants, used in leather tanning and in the production of materials like chrome plating. Animal and limited human studies have shown that the chemical causes tumors to grow in the stomach and intestines.

“The population is drinking a lower concentration, so these are affects that might accumulate over a lifetime,” said Walker. “There are elevated levels of stomach cancer in communities that have bigger exposures.”

Chromium-6 when inhaled is also known to cause asthma, pneumonia, decreased respiratory functioning, and long-term exposure can produce effects on the liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal and immune systems.

Lanny Brannock, spokesman for the Kentucky Department for Environmental Protection, said because chromium-6 is an unregulated contaminant, the state does not monitor for it.  “We’re following the guidelines the EPA puts forth and we monitor for total chromium, which is what is required,” Brannock said.

 

In 2011, the EPA was moving forward to impose restrictions on how much chromium-6 could be present in drinking water. But industry groups like the American Chemistry Council, which represents chemical companies, appealed seeking to delay the rules. Now, the EPA is studying the health effects of chromium-6 in drinking water. The agency cannot take action on imposing restrictions until the studies are finished, sometime this year or in 2017.

Owensboro Municipal Utilities is the main supplier of drinkable water in Daviess County. Other water suppliers, including SE Daviess Co. Water District, West Daviess Co. Water District and East Daviess Co. Water Association, Inc., buy their water from OMU.

Public Relations Manager Sonya Dixon said if acceptable levels of chromium-6 were adjusted by the EPA, the company would work to meet the new requirements.

“When you look at it relative to current acceptable levels — 100 parts per billion compared to 1.2 parts per billion — we have to keep it in perspective,” she said.

The Green River District Health Department covers seven counties including Hancock, Henderson and Daviess counties. Environmental Director Clayton Horton said chromium-6 hasn’t been on their radar. He said they take action when agencies like the EPA or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issue guidance to public health departments on how to educate public.

“We want to make sure our actions are based on stuff that can be backed up,” Horton said.

If the EPA were to eventually impose a legal limit for chromium-6 specifically, changes to levels in drinking water wouldn’t happen overnight. The agency usually gives states and companies time to develop processes to remove a chemical once it’s deemed unsafe at a certain level.

chemical-removal-in-tap-water

Clay Kelly, an engineer with Strand Associates, a civil engineering firm that works with local governments on waste water, said it would still be up to Kentucky to implement the standard. He said that could go beyond a mandate that water companies filter out the chemical. He said coal burning power plants and other producers of chromium-6 could be directed to pre-treat their water before it’s discharged back into streams and lakes.

“Instead of those facilities being able to discharge whatever out of their process, they have to have a pre-treatment to remove something particularly difficult before it enters the public wastewater system,” Kelly said. “They [the government] could at least monitor it before it’s diluted with everything else.”

Elevated levels of chromium were also found in Jefferson, Shelby, Spencer, Bullitt and Hardin counties. The counties with the lowest levels were Henry, Washington, Jessamine, Carter and Calloway.

Trainers Love Alkaline Water

A very popular show on TV  production is The Biggest Loser. About 20 or so severely overweight people are given a chance to go to a fitness ranch to lose weight and learn healthy habits. They also have two trainers that help them learn to eat right and train them in a fully equipped gym. One of those trainers is Jillian Michaels.Jillian Michaels loves Alkaline Water

Jillian is the drill sergeant of trainers. She’s the in your grill, kick your butt type of trainer. She doesn’t take any nonsense and has no tolerance for whining and excuse making. Sometimes that’s just what people need to jolt them out of the habits that have gotten them there in the first place.  I actually have a workout DVD and she cuts no slack.

She also had her interview posted on the treehugger.com website that endorses Kangen.

TH: What do you do on a daily basis that impacts both your health and the environment?

JM: I have gone off the deep end on this. I find that when one has the knowledge and the means they have a responsibility to make the ethical choice. With regard to my diet, I always go organic. I shop at local farmers’ markets whenever possible. I have given up all animal products except for fish that has been ethically fished like ocean caught salmon, farmed arctic char, farmed trout, pacific cod, tilapia, crab, shrimp, and farmed oysters. I use all natural beauty products like Olive Oil, brown sugar for scrubs, avocado and ethical organic brands. My cleaning products are all green – and got rid of paper towels almost entirely and use rags instead. I use a Kangen water Unit  for drinking water and put in stainless steel canteens, never bottled water.

Take a tip from Jillian. Drink Kangen Water!

The Ugly Truth About Bottled Water

My husband and I would always fight over which bottled water to buy.  His was Aquafina and mine was Deer Park Spring water.  I think most people buy bottled for convenience more than anything.  This is why for 8 years I carried the thought of one day I will have my Kangen water machine.  Getting the Kangen water machine was the best thing I have ever done for not only my family but also the earth in general.  I feel as though not am I only helping my family’s health but also saving the earth for a healthier generation as well as a healthier earth!  

So what did we do with the plastic bottles?  They went in the trash.  We were contributing to the factor below which is sad to think!

Bottled Water Is Bad For The Environment

13439012_1060346967368108_6304340899231437895_n.jpg

According to the National Geographic, “Bottled water is a drain on the environment: The U.S. public goes through about 50 billion water bottles a year, and most of those plastic containers are not recycled. Transporting the bottles and keeping them cold also burns fossil fuels, which give off greenhouse gases.” 1500 plastic bottles are consumed every second. Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times. And, it will take 1000 years for the plastic to degrade.

Eco-costs include manufacturing, trucking, shelving, and marketing. And meeting the annual U.S. demand for plastic bottles requires enough oil to keep 100,000 cars on the road for a year, says Janet Larsen of the Earth Policy Institute. Sure, the 70 million empty water bottles the U.S. produces per day can be recycled, but the sad truth is, about 86 percent of them end up in the trash. Hardly worth it, for what flows out of the tap and into a reusable glass for free.

It Can Pose Health Threats

And, by the way, about half of all bottled water is tap water that has been purified. Bottled water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic, but laced into plastic bottles are other chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat or sit around for a long time.

The plastic in bottled water often contains chemicals BPA and phthalates, which are proven to be hazardous to human health.

It’s Not Proven to Taste or Be Better For You Than Tap

truth about water.pngThe non-profit, non-partisan Environmental Working Group (EWG) says, “The government does not mandate that bottled water be any safer than tap water. In fact, the chemical pollution standards are nearly identical.” Historically, bottled waters have even been recalled for contamination with particulate matter, mold and bacteria.

Some bottled water is glorified tap water at 10,000 times the cost.

The label on your bottled water may depict a peaceful mountain stream, but that doesn’t mean the water inside is pure and pristine.

Only some bottled water comes from springs or groundwater sources. It turns out that approximately 25% of bottled water is sourced from … the tap. Sure, some companies filter or radiate the tap water with ultraviolet light before selling it to you at several thousand times the cost of municipal tap water. (Examples include Aquafina, Dasani, and many other brands.)

DANGERS of TAP Water

13227132_1052406881495450_1895511939060617035_n.jpg

Safe and readily available water is a basic human necessity in order to meet health and sanitation needs. However, tap water around the world has consistently been found to be sub-bar, “first-world” countries not excluded. According to the WHO (World Health Organization) some pretty astonishing facts about drinking global water are

  1.  Around the world, at least 1.8 billion people use a drinking-water source contaminated with feces. Contaminated water can transmit diseases such diarrhoea, cholera, dysentery, typhoid and polio. Contaminated drinking-water is estimated to cause 502,000 diarrheal deaths each year. By 2025, half of the world’s population will be living in water-stressed areas. In low- and middle-income countries, 38% of health care facilities lack any water source, 19% do not have improved sanitation, and 35% lack water and soap for hand washing.
  2.  NY Times: Tainted Tap Water in U.S. 35 years after U.S. Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act, some regulators and environmentalists say the law is now so out of date that it fails to protect people from the most obvious threats. In the USA, the NY Times reported on violations of the Clean Water Act, a federal law which governs water pollution, and has shown household water that is contaminated with lead, nickel, and other heavy metals. (Some extreme side-effects of this contamination have resulted in skin burns, rashes, and eroded tooth enamel)  The NY Times has since compiled a database of violations of the Safe Drinking Water act, finding 40% of the nation’s community water systems in violation at least once, exposing millions to potentially harmful chemicals, toxins, and heavy metals.

We’re not telling you that our Enagic® machine is going to solve all of the world’s water problems. But, we’re definitely suggesting that you have your water analyzed so that you know what you are working with. From there you can be proactive in filtering your source water, then ionize it to get the healthiest water on the planet! Think about what you drink!

Kangen Water® is Antioxidant-Rich, Healthy Water for Revitalized Cells and a Healthy Alternative to regular Tap and Bottled Water

Kangen Water® (aka electrolyzed reduced water (ERW), or hydrogen water) begins as tap water. The Enagic® machine filters out chlorine and other impurities from the tap water, then separates the hydrogen and oxygen with a process known as electrolysis. This process adds an electron to the hydrogen creating a new molecule called diatomic molecular hydrogen gas. When this is added to your drinking water, it produces antioxidant-rich Kangen Water®
Oxidant, by definition, is an oxidizing agent while antioxidant is any substance that acts to slow or prevent the oxidation of another chemical. In the human body, oxidative damage plays a huge role in many of our modern day diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. Antioxidants, on the other hand, act to tame the free radicals (or highly reactive chemicals) in the body that have potential to harm cells and cause disease.13445519_584429015069436_655935779649560871_n.jpg
