According to the Cleveland Clinic, uncontrolled inflammation plays a role in almost every major disease. While we hear inflammation all the time in relation to our health, there is still a great deal of confusion surrounding this word and what it really means.
There’s a reason why Google searches for inflammation are up 300% over the past 15 years.
Here’s some quick science to take in.
Acute vs. Chronic inflammation
Inflammation is your body’s first line of defense against toxins, infections and injuries. It’s the immune system’s response to an irritant.
Acute inflammation is short-lived in hours or days. So think of something like germs, bacteria and viruses like the common cold. But acute inflammation helps fight injuries, such as scrapes and sprains where your body is sending help to the infected area to heal.
Chronic inflammation is longer lasting in months or years when inflammation becomes persistent. It can occur in response to other unwanted substances in the body, like when your body is sensing something that should not be there, such as a buildup of toxins. Toxins can come from refined carbohydrates, fried foods, sugar-sweetened beverages, cigarette smoke and even from the environment. It circulates throughout your bloodstream, affecting every zone in your body and is the breeding ground for severe diseases.
What your body does to detox
Your organs are detox workhorses built to flush out the toxins we are all exposed to.
Toxins come in the form of excess hydrogen molecules. They quickly combine with H2O to form hydronium ions.
Hydronium is H3O+ - which is the primary cause of inflammation.
H¹O is on a molecular mission to help remove the effects of inflammation.
H¹O is the only water additive that actually eliminates toxins from your body. Think of it as this heat-seeking missile designed to target these hydronium ions and convert them to water.
That’s the core of what it does.
H¹O comes in and converts these potentially damaging free radicals, pulls them away from the hydronium ions, and turns them into water molecules.
H¹O helps you effectively and safely detoxify.
We like to talk about our bodies as a chain link where everything is interconnected. But everybody has a weak link in their chain somewhere. What H¹O has done is found a way to address that area of vulnerability, remove the unwanted guests that are causing harm to the party - and not so politely show them the door.
