Ever since I was introduced to drinking ionized water I have incorporated more and more elements of an alkaline lifestyle into my life. I have always been a healthy eater but I did not know the extent to which the water from ionizers goes with other elements such as a diet high in vegetables and fruits and choosing to eat organic and more natural and sustainable foods. For me as I was awaking to this alkaline lifestyle I was fascinated and also shocked to learn that just about all the foods you find in a standard supermarket in the US are highly industrialized and contain so many man made chemicals and derivatives of natural ingredients. For instance the majority of “sugary” items in the supermarket do not contain natural cane sugar, they contain “high fructose corn syrup”. High fructose corn syrup is a derived from corn and and is an artificial man made sweetener found in sodas, juices, cereal bars, breads, cereals, breakfast bars, lunch meats, yogurts, soups, and condiments, pretty much in everything the average american could eat on a daily basis. Now it is “unofficial” weather or not High Fructose Corn Syrup contributes to obesity at a greater rate than natural cane sugar but there is much research point in that direction and the United States is the most obese nation in the world and is also the greatest consumer of High Fructose Corn Syrup in the world. The reason for this being the United States imposes a Tax on imported Cain Sugar which makes High Fructose Corn Syrup cheaper than natural sugar. In fact in the United States the price of sugar is kept artificially high at nearly double the world cost per pound due to government regulation.
Here are some more links on High Fructose Corn Syrup found in many of the foods we eat:
Now this may be new to you and you may now be worried about many of the foods you eat but this is a good thing, what you put in your body is one of the most important decisions you make on a daily basis. And although it may look like all foods contain High Fructose Corn Syrup this is not the case. Just look at the ingredient labels on the foods you buy. If you have a whole foods supermarket or other supermaket that is big on organic and natural foods near you it will be well worth your time to pay them a visit. You will be surprised to find that they carry the same items found in your standard supermarket but you can find alternatives there which contain natural cain sugar and not High Fructose Corn Syrup, and the price is pretty much the same! If you are going through the information on this site then I suspect you were searching for water ionizer reviews because you have heard of the health benefits of drinking alkaline water. However water is not and should not be your main source of antioxidants and higher PH, you need to also eat natural organic foods, vegetables and free raised meats and chicken. It is a whole range of things which we consume in our diet that will either improve our health or lead to health disorders. So do not stop at ionized water, seek out and improve your diet as well.
