AQUA Hydrate: a great tasting, clean and refreshing high pH alkaline water that not only hydrates your body, but also helps to supports your overall health and well being.
Spring has finally arrived in Montreal!
After such a long winter, it's not uncommon for our attention to turn to the current state of our mental and physical health. For those of us who have suffered the effects of winter blues: (staying in, curling into a ball, and probably eating more than we normally should!) we can now truly delight in the fact that the days are getting longer and the temperature is gradually rising.
Maybe, like me, some of you have been hit hard with a bout of seasonal flu, due to changes in the weather. I take my health to heart. Promoting a healthy lifestyle is about keeping fit, looking and feeling good about oneself, preventing illness, and preventing any existing illness from becoming worse.
Spring in Montreal is celebrated by locals putting on their running shoes and going for a run in the Old Port, renting a BIXI bike to get around the city fast and efficiently, spending quality time with friends on Sundays at the Mount Royal Park Tam Tams, bringing out the water sports equipment or simply slipping on something sexy & comfortable and going out and having a good time at various clubs and bars. Promoting an all round healthy lifestyle is essential to Montrealer’s overall wellness.
One of the essential and often overlooked factors in maintaining a healthy body and system is overall hydration. The average adult should consume between 2 and 3 liters of water per day and the amount increases with the amount of physical activity undertaken.
I would like to share with all of you my recent discovery of a unique beverage with proposed health benefits: AQUA Hydrate: a great tasting, clean and refreshing high pH alkaline water that not only hydrates your body, but also helps to supports your overall health and well being, while promoting your body’s natural balance.
AQUA Hydrate alkaline water has a unique blend of electrolytes that has been achieved by electrolysis (electric currents) that supercharges the water. The water is enhanced with 72 different electrolytes and trace minerals sourced from the mineral-rich marine regions of Utah. Because of this process, the pH level is raised from a neutral pH7 to an alkaline pH9 state without the use of liquid concentrates or additives.
You could wonder: Why is the pH factor important?
Several of the processed foods and drinks we consume are acidic in nature. While acid production in our body is nearly impossible to avoid, it could have negative long term effects on the way our system functions. A human body that suffers from an excess amount of toxic acidic waste could eventually experience: decreased bone density, loss of strength, muscle and kidney deterioration, decreased vitality or general lethargy. It is the opinion of several doctors and nutritionists that a preventive measure to this acid accumulation is to consume food and beverages with high alkaline metabolizing effects.
Because AQUA Hydrate alkaline water has a higher pH level than does other bottled water or plain tap water, its advocates (such as actor Mark Wahlberg and incendiary producer Puff Daddy), say that it could potentially neutralize acid in your bloodstream and help your body absorb nutrients more effectively.
Personally, what caught my interest is that when asked, a couple of my trainer friends mutually agreed that word among the fitness community is that a frequent consumption of alkaline water can help boost your metabolism, prevent disease and slow the aging process. Great motivation to keep hydrated.
This summer, there are tons of interesting activities that I am eager to cover and I will certainly be heading out in the city to have fun in the sun.....With a couple bottles of water under my wing.
AQUA Hydrate is available in over 200 sales points around Montreal.
