Episode 53: Alkaline Water – Part 1

We all know we need to drink more water. But, do you know that your go-to water source might not be the safest? Access to clean drinking water is a global crisis, but most people don’t realize that this is something that affects even us who live in developed countries! The common ways that people consume their water through household filtration systems, plastic bottles, or even straight from the tap just aren’t doing the trick in ensuring our safety. Jess, a Kangen water expert, is here to share some better options with us!

Jess Millman prides herself on inspiring others. For years, she has used her social media platform to get people thinking more about the choices they make. This includes having a sustainable lifestyle and being more mindful about food and water choices. Jess discovered the magic of using alkaline water a few years back and wants to spread the word! Today, she’s discussing why we need alkaline water in our lives – predominantly because of the dangers that come with drinking your average tap water. We chat about some of the common pollutants that are found in our water supplies, and also why bottled water and simple home filtration systems aren’t sufficient enough to protect us from these toxins. Jess further educates me on why other water purification processes just aren’t as good as the Kangen Machine.

This episode really took me back to the days of high school chemistry – I was having flashbacks of doing pH testing in the lab and wishing I had paid more attention then! But, this conversation is a great introduction for beginners to help understand what exactly alkaline water is and how the Kangen machine really works. Don’t get overwhelmed by the scientific talk – Jess will explain more in Part 2 next week. On that episode we’ll also discuss some of the benefits and different uses of Kangen water and why she believes this machine is worth the investment. This is one of those episodes that’s going to truly open your eyes to an everyday issue that so many of us are blind to, and I hope it is an episode that will help you in making safer choices for your and your family’s health!
