Dr. Liza Leal FAQ
How much alkaline water should I drink every day?
Doctors say it is beneficial to drink at least 8-12 glasses of water per day. If you are not used to drinking a lot of water, start out by drinking 2 bottles of EarthWater a day. If you have a condition that causes an acidic environment you are recommended to drink 4 ounces four times a day of EarthWater and gradually increase. If you are in great shape and in the heat of exercise you may take larger volumes of EarthWater.
What is the difference between EarthWater and other Alkaline Waters?
The Advantages of Natural vs. Synthetic
As with most things involving our health, the natural usually outranks the synthetic. That’s every bit as true with the water we drink. The alkalinity of water, which is responsible for providing many of the nutrients our bodies need to thrive, can be produced by both natural and artificial means. But the results are far different.
Synthetic alkalinity in water is created by a process called ionization, or electrolysis. Water is poured over ionized plates that use electricity to split the water’s molecules, changing their basic composition.
WHY IS IT BLACK?
Fulvic and Humic Acids are the products of plants which have biodegraded over millions of years to form a mineral-rich layer of soil that feeds new plant growth to make them healthy and strong. EarthWater extracts these valuable minerals and refines them to create our proprietary complex that is added to our waters and other products. Naturally making alkaline water. The Humic mineral complex, combined with the Fulvic complex, is what turns the FulHum water black, but it tastes just like water! It's the minerals you can see!
Are there any side effects related to drinking alkaline water?
When you start drinking alkaline water, normal side effects may include headaches, fatigue, muscle aches, a runny nose, and other flu-like symptoms. Also, your stool will likely be darker, softer, or more odorous and you may experience gas. These side-effects are a good sign, as they are directly related to the detoxification that your body is undergoing as the micro-clustered water penetrates deep into your tissues and expels acid waste and toxins that have accumulated in your body over time. Side-effects will subside once your body has become accustomed to the water, anywhere from 2-3 days to 2-3 weeks, depending on each individual and the level of detoxification that the body needs to undergo.
When will I begin noticing the health benefits?
Each person is different, and as such, the body’s response to drinking alkaline water varies from person to person. You might start noticing a positive response in as little as one day or within a few weeks.
Should I drink alkaline water with meals?
No. Do not drink ionized water 30 minutes before and up to 1.5 - 2 hours after meals. Our stomach needs to be acidic to digest the food we eat, and drinking alkaline water with meals will simply slow down the digestion process.
Can I use alkaline water to take my medication?
Yes and No. While some medications are fine, Do not take thyroid medication with Alkaline water. Wait 30 minutes before and up to 2 hours after taking medication. The alkaline water penetrates the cells in our body much more quickly, and it is best not to interfere with the prescribed absorption rate of the medication. Ask your doctor for your unique medication plan.
When is the best time to drink alkaline water?
Your first glass of the day right when you get out of bed is great way to start your day.
Make your coffee or add your pre and post GPS products with it. Take your vitamins with it.
Does EarthWater taste different?
It taste like a smoothie silkier water. The fulvic and humid minerals combine to make EarthWater black naturally. It is also wonderful to cook with because it helps hydrate the food and bring out its flavor.
What can you say:
The law does limit the claims made on supplements’ labels and on the Internet (even in testimonials and website links). With only a few exceptions, they cannot assert that the supplements treat or cure disease. They may make only “structure/function” or “health maintenance” claims. Here are some examples:
A label can say “helps improve your mood” but can’t say “reduces depression.”
It can say “maintains a healthy circulatory system” but not “prevents cardiovascular disease.”
It can say “maintains cholesterol in a healthy range” but not “lowers cholesterol.”
It can say “supports the immune system” but not “helps prevent colds and flu”
WHY IS IT BLACK?
Fulvic and Humic Acids are the products of plants which have biodegraded over millions of years to form a mineral-rich layer of soil that feeds new plant growth to make them healthy and strong. EarthWater extracts these valuable minerals and refines them to create our proprietary complex that is added to our waters and other products. The Humic mineral complex, combined with the Fulvic complex, is what turns the FulHum water black, but it tastes just like water! It's minerals you can see!
SO, WHY DRINK IT?
There are a variety of healthy reasons to drink FulHum by EarthWater. Here are a few, just for starters.
Better Mineral Absorption
Trace minerals serve a multitude of purposes inside our bodies. They impart fantastic benefits to our overall physical health and well-being, such as improving gut health, enabling detoxification, and diminishing inflammation. The chemical structure of Fulvic and Humic Acids allows them to readily bind with (and even enhance) trace minerals. Their molecules are easily absorbed by the body, so when Fulvic and Humic Acids are integrated with plain water, you achieve not only better hydration, you also ingest important, health-enhancing minerals. And because of its high pH factor, FulHum is packed with powerful antioxidants that help combat the damaging effects of free-radicals.
Generally, we reap the benefits of these minerals through the fruits and vegetables we eat. However, due to over-farming and bio-engineering of plants, these important nutrients are no longer sufficiently available in most of food we eat. EarthWater products deliver these minerals to you in a way that is simple to integrate into your daily routine, and easy for your body to absorb. You drink water every day. Make sure it's water that improves your health.
