Guest Post: The Effects Of pH Balanced Water on Cognitive Function

Seventy-five percents of brain mass is water. Water supplementation improves cognitive performances, as well as mood and hydration state, while inadequate hydration causes brain function to go downwards. Being dehydrated affects your neural pathways negatively as it gets harder for the section of the brain to struggle with problem-solving.

Are you having a hard time with recalling things from just a couple of days ago? Struggling to stay focused? Then the following lines would be definitely worth a read! 

Cognitive function of the brain is in charge of memory, attention, knowledge attainment, encompass reasoning, as well as visuospatial function. Knowing dehydration affects cognitive abilities negatively, you will probably come to this question. Is it possible for pH values in drinking water to have certain influences on the cognitive function as well? 

Health authorities changed the recommended quantity of water intake with time. Two liters a day became three point seven liters. People are wondering how much water they should drink each day, but they never question drinking water quality. Don’t be harsh on yourself even if you come into this category as well. 

Did you know one can drink liters of water a day and still experience serious health issues? It all depends on one single thing – pH value. Speaking of pH, values below 7 indicate to acidic water, while values above 7 point out to alkaline (basic) water. These numbers also define whether drinking water is either soft or hard. 

Intention of a study conducted by Na Zhang, Songming Du, Guasheng Ma et al. was to prove positive effects water supplementation has on cognitive performances of male college students. They were divided into two groups. One group used to drink water as much as they could, while the other group continued with their old water drinking patterns. 

The examinees went through a 7-day testing, after which each of them was subjected to a final test. Students were listening to a list of random numbers. After reading a digit sequence (each sequence begins with three numbers), the students were asked to recall the digits. 

This study provided useful information on the effects of water supplementation on cognitive function among college students. The purpose of the study was to raise the awareness of residents about the importance of good hydration. 

According to EPA standards, pH of drinking water must vary between these two values. Soft, acidic, and corrosive water has pH lower than 6.5, while pH higher than 8.5 indicates to hard water. Differences between soft and hard water are significant. 

Soft water contains pollutants, metals (zinc, copper, lead, manganese, iron) and is toxic. On the other hand, hard water with a pH beyond 8.5 tastes differently and forms scale depositions, but it is doesn’t have harmful effects on human health as soft water does. Either way, EPA claims both excessive values of alkalinity and acidity have a negative impact on human health. 

Now that you know drinking water with excessive pH values has detrimental effects on your health, you can conclude such water has detrimental effects on your brain’s cognitive function as well. 

Only pH-balanced, long-term water supplementation has positive effects on cognitive function as well as on the whole organism. If you want to supply your brain and its cells with everything they need, drinking balanced Kangen water will boosts its function and make you hydrated, more attentive and energized all day long.
