The following is some research from various sources. ENJOY.
What are free radicals and what is all the hoopla about?
Why are they so important?
A Free Radical is an atom or molecule that has an unpaired electron. These are caused by any metabolic function that requires oxygen to create energy in the body. These free radicals, when they run around in the body, actually steal electrons to repair themselves, from surrounding atoms. To accomplish this, they create a chain reaction of small atomic explosions and this creates cellular damage, cellular stress and ultimately DNA damage. A negatively charged oxygen singlet can donate that specific electron that these atoms/molecules are missing. In other words, it can stop that chain reaction of cellular destruction by providing a negatively charged oxygen singlet, to counteract a positively charged oxygen singlet. So in essence you are able to eliminate free radicals and create bio-available oxygen in the bloodstream. Actually, research has shown that the damage to a body is not caused by free radicals but rather the excess of free radicals. Aside from toxins, pollution and poor diets, the accumulation of free radicals can actually be caused by doing great things like exercise. Free radicals are caused by a metabolic function that uses Oxygen to create energy. So by doing exercise, you actually increase the amount of free radical activity. This all seems to go back to balance and being able to maintain that balance. Balance and normalization of this situation is possible. Our bodies have a built in anti free radical system in a form of blood plasma. Oxygen helps eliminate toxins while hydrogen supports our immune system and helps build our cells and systems. Nutrients need to go in and toxins need to be flushed out. The result will be more energy, a stronger immune system and a healthier body. Allot of people feel they need to look at their water once they see that a problem exists. However they forget that preventative measures make more sense and can be more beneficial.
The benefits of clean ~ clear ~ nutritional water are so important especially today. Ailments from bad water can cause future problems rather than immediate in some cases. We actually found a location that had Giardia once and the customer was fine, they actually got immune to it. The body got accustomed to it, if you think of our senses we get used to smell, noise, taste, and other things on a consistent basis. Does this mean that we are not being affected?
Food for thought. Thanks for reading.
