When you think about your individual health and nutrition goals, what food or nutrients do you usually consider to be most important? Consider this: The human body is made of 80% water and the human brain of 70 % water, which means that water intake is extremely important.
Every morning, as soon as you wake up, the body is already 2 cups dehydrated. Therefore, water can solve much more issues in the body you can imagine. It gives body energy, lessens food cravings, helps you focus, and much more.
Therefore, you will enjoy many health benefits if you drink 2 cups of filtered alkaline water as soon as you wake up, and then you can drink or eat whatever you want.
Because you wake up 2 cups dehydrated, with drinking coffee or some other diuretic drinks, you will be even more dehydrated. Also, water from the tap contains antibiotics, hormones, chlorine, and other metals which enter your body.
Impure water can cause a weakened immune system and an array of other illnesses that occur when the immune system is vulnerable. There is also a chance that the public water is contaminated.
The acid/alkaline balance is vital for your health, as, in an acidic environment of the body, the person experiences fatigue, low energy, weight gain, digestive issues, and other side effects, which are all avoidable if you maintain to neutralize the environment.
Therefore, it is of high importance to consume pure water and fresh organic vegetables.
If possible use an alkaline water filtration system. This system can be expensive, going from 1-3k. But you can buy personal alkaline wands in some nearby health food store for 30$. Yet, the best option is fresh spring water.
Alkaline water recipe:
1 teaspoon Himalayan pink Salt

Fill pitcher, add in Lemon wedges (do not squeeze!). Then add 1 tsp. Himalayan Pink Salt, cover, and let sit overnight (8-12 hrs.) at room temperature.
You should drink 2 glasses of it the next morning, as soon as you wake up.
