During exercise muscles are required to work at a higher active rate and as this rate is increased they begin to produce lactic acid which lowers their pH level. This build up of lactic acid and the lowering of the pH level results in muscle fatigue and post-exercise muscle soreness.
Some research indicates that drinking alkaline water before, during and after exercise can help to neutralise the increase of lactic acid in your muscles helping to avoid post-exercise soreness.
The brain is one of the most important organs in your body, it requires water to create electrical energy for all functions, such as thought and memory processes, when dehydrated, your brain actually shrinks in volume (a ‘dehydration headache’ is caused by this shrinkage), dehydrated symptoms such as headaches and poor concentration can be felt.
Brain cells require more energy than any other cell in the body, Keeping your brain fuelled by regularly hydrating is essential to maintain this process – it is believed water provides this energy more effectively than any other substance.
