Staying Healthy & Hydrated in Quarantine

It’s important to practice social distancing. But it’s also important to stay healthy during self-quarantine. Sometimes it feels like a balance we just can’t quite strike right. We’re here to help you get through this together with some exercise, eating well, and staying hydrated. 

EXERCISE, EXERCISE, AND MORE EXERCISE

Go outside and get some fresh air with a hike or walk. Grab your mat and enjoy yoga or pilates with the sights and sounds of nature. Biking is low impact and gets your heart pumping. Whatever motivates and inspires you is good enough. 

While gyms were open and now are closed, it doesn’t mean you have to stop exercising. It is a great time to continue staying active at home. You only need a desk chair and moderate hand weights (5-10 pounds). Can’t find weights or something heavy enough to suffice? Bodyweight movements are a great way to incorporate resistance in a pinch!

EATING DURING SELF-QUARANTINE

Right now, grocery stores are a war zone. It feels easy to buy snacks and processed foods right now since they have a longer shelf-life in order to buy yourself more time before your next trip. However, eating healthy during this pandemic is imperative. Ways to make this easier include planning your meals in advance and understanding what foods make your body feel best. 

It’s also a great idea to cook using Kangen water due to their awesome health benefits. We’ve talked about it before if you want to check it out

HYDRATING DURING SELF-QUARANTINE

While you may have endless amounts of tap water available to you, making sure you are cognizant of the water you drink in quarantine is essential to your health. Alkaline water is known for its benefits, and investing in an Enagic device can completely revolutionize your health and immune system

Alkaline water boosts your white blood cell count and also helps protect your body from unwanted invaders. In the unfortunate event that you get sick, it can also greatly impact your ability to recover and heal. Slow healing processes can be the result of an excess amount of toxic compounds in the body. This means it will have to work extra hard to maintain its biological functions. Alkaline water neutralises these toxic compounds present in the body. Moreover, alkaline water is more easily absorbed by the body. This allows your body to use the water you drink effectively, and toxins and harmful substances are flushed out of your system more easily.

Drinking alkaline water regularly can improve the performance of your circulatory system, as it alters the quality of blood in such a way that more oxygen is carried to vital organs. All benefits of alkaline water work in tandem to make the immune system stronger in order to fight foreign pathogens and infections.

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.
