Along with alkaline water’s popularity in Singapore and elsewhere came the onslaught of doubts and criticism as to its health benefits.
Not surprisingly, healthier and more effective alternatives to alkaline water have been discovered and marketed in recent years. Two of these substitutes will be discussed below.
Alternatives to Artificial Alkaline Water in Singapore
Health is of great importance not only in Singapore but for the rest of the world, which explains the apparent boom in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries.
It is precisely because of this boom that consumers are now bombarded with a wide range of products and alternatives. Among the products that have entered the healthcare market and caused a stir is alkaline water.
While there is still no definitive research concluding that artificial alkaline water is harmful to the body, a number of researchers and medical practitioners are questioning its effectiveness, giving way to the introduction of alternatives to alkaline water in Singapore, including the following:
Natural alkaline water. Alkaline minerals are beneficial to the body as they help neutralize acidity and flush out free radicals. Likewise, naturally-occurring alkaline water helps improve blood circulation and aids in better hydration. However, it must be emphasized that these benefits can be reaped only when drinking naturally-occurring alkaline water (i.e. those found in springs and naturally have high alkaline content). Unlike ionized water, spring water with high alkaline content is not laced with chemicals and compounds that can otherwise be toxic or harmful to the body.
HiFloAM water. Another innovation in healthcare products is HiFloAM Water®, a healthier and more effective alternative to ionized water. Not only is this type of water free of toxic compounds, it also boasts a number of health benefits including:
- Improved blood circulation. The key to good blood circulation is proper hydration. Water prevents the thickening of blood and thereby, prevents clogging of arteries and veins. Since blood circulation is vital in the performance of different organs of their key functions, drinking HiFloAM Water® also improves concentration and memory, and reduces the likelihood of developing heart problems.
- Better digestion. Water is essential to good health because it serves as a catalyst to metabolism by aiding in the conversion of digested food to absorbable nutrients. Compared to alkaline water, HiFloAM Water® more effectively extracts nutrients from the food we eat, thereby speeding up the delivery of vital minerals and nutrients to the cells.
- Effective toxin discharge. Another key role that water plays in the body is the flushing out of toxins. The food we eat, the activities we do, and the environment we are in can all increase the amount of toxins in the body. Fortunately, proper hydration can help discharge these toxins from the body and, in the process, prevents constipation and a whole range of pathogenic activities. In addition, since HiFloAM Water® has high levels of dissolved oxygen and hydrogen, it effectively hydrates the skin from within.
As with any other healthcare product entering the Singapore market, consumers must be cautioned not to immediately jump into the alkaline water bandwagon without looking into its effects on the body.
On that note, more effective alternatives to alkaline water must also be duly considered.
At Nature’s Glory Singapore, the HiFloAM Water® system uses water filtration technology to create alkaline water with properties similar to these "miracle" spring waters from France, Germany & Mexico -- a weak alkaline pH, high hydration ability, and the ability to remove free radicals. Compared to other alkaline water systems, our HiFloAM Water® filtration system aims to improve upon taste, higher in hydrogen and oxygen levels to help prevent free radical damage in cells and stronger antioxidant ability.
HiFloAM Water® is fully made in Japan, in a factory with Medical Standards ISO 13485 Certificate, which is considered much stricter and higher than ISO90001 quality standards, giving you peace of mind in your purchase.
