Absolutely! Proper hydration sustains the body’s physiological responses in all activities, but the physical and mental stresses of athletic training and competition magnify the importance of hydration. Numerous studies conducted on athletes since the 1940’s have demonstrated that even mild dehydration impairs performance.
Alkaline ionized water is micro-clustered, so it can be absorbed at a faster rate, helping with rehydration of the body’s tissues. Furthermore, blood oxygen levels increase with regular use of alkaline water, providing the muscles tissue and organs with high amounts of oxygen and improving stamina and endurance. Water that has been alkalized also helps to neutralize the exercise induced lactic acid build up in the muscles, and improves recovery time.
