I’m sure when some one says to you, “oxidative reduction potential” or ORP, it means absolutely nothing to you. In fact, when I first heard it I thought,”Oh no, here comes a headache. I don’t even want to understand this term!” If you are looking for better health, this is a term that you want to become familiar with.
What is it?
ORP is basically a measure of electron activity. In terms of health and the body, it becomes a relative measurement of antioxidant capacity. Electron potential can be either positive or negative. When the electron potential is negative, it has many available electrons readily available to neutralize free radicals. So the more negative the ORP the bigger capacity it has to become a free radical neutralizer.
Most foods we eat have positive ORP values. This means that our diet can constantly produces free radicals into our system by the process of oxidation. This wreaks havoc on our bodies. Even though our bodies are so great at healing, the strain we put on them year in and year out from our diet can get the best of us.
How can you start reaping the benefits of great health in relation to ORP?
It’s most beneficial to eat a diet rich in foods and water that are alkaline. This might be unrealistic just starting out. One realistic step you can start right now is to change the type of water you drink. Drinking the right water will give you all the health benefits.
Drinking water that has an ORP of -200mv is ideal to reach maximum antioxidant benefits. Drinking a lot of this type of water everyday can go a long way to offset any oxidizing processes going on in the body. It will reduce the number of free radicals produced that can damage the tissues and organs of your body.
Is it difficult to produce and drink water with a -200mv ORP?
Like many diets, everything sounds great until it comes time to implement the plan. It’s at this time that most diets becomes too time consuming. Because of this, most people start off doing everything they can in the beginning to just end up giving up because of the difficulty.
This doesn’t have to be difficult at all. In fact, it can be as easy as pouring water, waiting for 5 to 10 minutes and drinking it. The water is not only changed with a negative ORP to offset oxidization, but also contribute many other benefits of healthy living water.
There are many containers that are made with materials that can cause the ORP changes to occur from a positive potential to a more optimal negative potential every time you drink a glass of water. Healthy living water with a beneficial ORP is affordable and easy to produce.
