2. Acts as an Antioxidant
Alkaline water provides negative hydrogen ions to the body. This is a powerful antioxidant. Drinking alkaline water will help speed up the healing of wounds and other injuries as the water will encourage the production of fibrinogen. Fibrinogen helps to reduce bleeding from wounds, allowing them to heal at a much faster rate. Antioxidants are very powerful and also help to slow down the process of free radicals within the body. Free radicals are known to cause many types of disease including cancers.
