Water’s role in digestion

Drinking plenty of water regularly during the day and one glass of water 1 1/2 hour before meals produces a domino effect.

Water immediately passes into the intestine and is absorbed. Within ½ hr., almost the same amount of water is secreted into the stomach through its glandular layer in the mucous swelling from underneath, readying the stomach for food breakdown.

The act of digestion of solid food depends upon this action.

When acid is poured onto incoming food, enzymes are activated, the food is broken down, and the fluid mass formed can then pass into the intestine for the next phase. Mucus covers the glandular layer of the mucosa, which is the inner most layer of the stomach. Mucous consists of 98% water and 2% “scaffolding” that traps water. It is in the mucus layer where the natural buffer state is established. The cells below secrete sodium bicarbonate trapped in the water layer. As the acid tries to go through this protective layer, the bicarbonate neutralizes it.Without this protective layer, acid would reach below the mucus layer, causing pain and the beginning of an ulcer.

The efficiency of this procedure depends solely on the amount of water in the body or a good hydration. If the water is not enough low acid level  will not be enough to break down the food and digestion slow down and create alkaline linen

There must be enough to hydrate the mucus glands; otherwise, there is little protection from the strong stomach acids. Antacids are designed to attach to the acid in the stomach, neutralizing it and taking away the valuable elements needed for the digestive process, ultimately compounding the problem.

Kangenwater is the right water for the cells. It can help to improve the digestion process because of its high power of hydration and at the same time can it help to increase the alkaline buffers the body needs for metabolic process instead of  taking from the bones.
