Alkaline Water & Weight-Loss?

In the US alone, consumers spend over 60 billions every year looking for a “quick fix” for losing weight, but the only thing that generally loses weight is their wallet.  Research shows that the body resists sudden changes, as evidenced by the fact that people who report losing weight frequently report putting it back on just as fast!

Much of the obesity epidemic in the US is directly attributed to an acidic diet and lifestyle. The traditional American diet causes low grade metabolic acidosis, a condition triggered by the buildup of excess acids in the body tissues.  Most health experts agree the ideal pH for blood is 7.3.

If your blood pH drops below 7.3 by even a small amount (e.g., 7.2 pH), critical enzymes involved in the digestive process no longer work at optimal levels. When this happens, acidic byproducts of digestion are released into your body.  If your body can not flush these byproducts, it creates fat cells to surround the excess acid and protect vital organs from damage.

Raising your body’s pH to become more alkaline taps into your body’s internal mechanisms for weight loss by neutralizing acid and eliminating the need to create and store fat cells.  When your body no longer needs these fat cells, they are released into the bloodstream where they are eliminated through urination and defecation.

How is your weight effected by acid…

  • The body creates fat cells to trap and neutralize acids in the body.
  • Fat cells bind to acids and are stored in the body, resulting in weight gain.
  • The modern diet of meats, grains, and beverages such as coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcohol is extremely acidic.
  • Some acids are voided through urination, defecation, and perspiration, but many acids remain in the system.
  • Excess acids in the body break down healthy tissue, so the body protects itself by creating a natural buffer of fat.

Traditional weight loss methods are doomed to fail…

  • Reducing the amount you eat may not decrease acid intake at all.
  • Reducing calories may not decrease acidity and may actually increase it.
  • Reducing fats in your diet may not reduce acidity or result in weight loss.
  • Increasing your consumption of meats and processed foods will increase acidity.
  • Exercise releases acid from your muscles back into your body and if not neutralized or eliminated are reabsorbed back into your system.


How Alkaline Water Helps You Lose Weight?

When the body is actually losing weight, fatty acids are released from fat cells into the bloodstream. These fatty acids must be converted to glucose for the body to burn them. The conversion of fatty acids into glucose produces acidic wastes. If the body gets too acidic, it can slow down that conversion process. A body has a hard time losing weight in that condition. Alkaline water helps neutralize the acidity caused by the conversion of fatty acid to glucose. By maintaining a higher body pH, a healthy diet is likely to be more effective. Maintenance of a healthy body weight would be easier too.

  • Alkaline water suppresses the appetite naturally and helps the body metabolize fat.
  • Studies have shown that a decrease in water intake will cause fat deposits to increase, while an increase in water intake will reduce fat deposits.
  • An overweight person needs more water than the thin one. Larger people have larger metabolic loads. Since we know that water is the key to fat metabolism, it follows that the overweight person needs more water.


When the body does not get enough water it perceives it as a threat to survival and begins to hold onto every drop. Water is stored in the extra cellular spaces (outside the cell walls). This shows up as swollen feet, legs and hands.

The best way to overcome the problem of water retention is to give your body what it needs--plenty of alkaline water. Only then will stored water be released.

Alkaline Water for Weight Loss

  • Drinking alkaline water is the most natural and effective method for weight loss.
  • Increasing your alkaline intake neutralized acid in your body.
  • Neutralizing acid allows your body to release and eliminate fat cells.
  • Once fat cells are no longer needed, the body will eliminate them-the fat melts away.
  • Releasing fat cells allows your body to return to its natural, ideal weight.
  • Alkaline water is the most effective way to neutralize the acids in your body and help you to maintain a balanced pH.
  • Alkaline water is structured, making it easier for water to pass in and out of the cells, so acidic toxins are flushed out of the body.
  • Returning to your ideal weight increases your energy and vitality.


How Alkaline Water Helps You Exercise?

During exercise, the muscles convert glucose into energy. The process of converting glucose into energy creates lactic acid. The burning sensation in your muscles during a workout is caused by lactic acid. Alkaline water can help buffer the lactic acid, so the muscles can work harder before they feel “burned out”. Many professional athletes – including pros that endorse Fresh Water Depot – Alkalize your body before working out to maximize your performance.

Alkaline Water Detoxification?

Diet and exercise together can put quite a load on the body. When fat cells release fatty acids, they can also release toxins. The toxins in fat cells accumulate as weight is gained, so they must be released as weight is lost. Alkaline water hydrates better than plain water, so it can help flush accumulated toxins from the fat cells. When you combine the three benefits of alkaline water with healthy diet and exercise, it’s easy to see why alkaline water has become popular among people who want to reach a healthy weight.


If you are attempting to use an alkaline diet for weight loss, it is very important you know how to take the balanced approach. When you use alkaline water in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle you will receive the “miracle” weight loss that everyone is raving about. Once you begin drinking the alkaline water on a regular basis, you can move from drinking water with pH 9.0 to pH 9.5 (for adults).

Consuming a healthy amount of this high pH water is guaranteed to aid the body in returning to it’s ideal weight. Also, you should use the high pH water when preparing foods like soup and stews, to balance the acidifying animal proteins or other acidic aspects of the food.

At Fresh Water Depot, we can provide you and your family with clean healthy water that has been filtered properly, has an alkaline pH, and packed full of essential minerals and antioxidants for optimal health. Ensuring the healthiest drinking water for your home and family.
