A healthy immune system is something we all want. We already know that eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables helps to support the immune system, but did you know that alkaline water from a water ionizer is a key way to really shore up your immune response?
Alkaline Water is Different to Tap and Bottled Water
Let’s recap what alkaline water is. Ionized alkaline water is produced by a water ionizer machine. Tap water flows into the unit where it is filtered. The clean water then passes over and around electrically-charged titanium and platinum plates which subject the water to a process called electrolysis.

In October last year, research scientists in Italy made the shocking discovery that microplastics are passed from mother to baby in breastmilk. The same team found microplastics in human placentas during research in 2020.
34 test subjects were monitored and microplastics were identified in 75% of the breastfeeding mothers’ milk.
Microplastics & Your Body
We should perhaps not be surprised, as gloomy as the news is. After all, microplastics are everywhere – in the air, our food and packaged drinks. In separate research, microplastics were found in human blood, which means that they are being transported around the human body and organs 24/7.
Your body does not expel all microplastics. It’s too soon to be able to …
