We all know that our bodies need water; water is one of the most vital things that keep us running. Most of the world is made up of water; our bodies are of course made up mostly of water. We need water to function and to stay hydrated, and without water we would die … literally. With all this water around us we need to make sure we are drinking enough water.

Water is the solvent of all of the food you eat, and it is the medium by which all chemical reactions related to digestion happens. Water helps turn food into energy, enabling your body to function. But for water to do its part, you need to fill your body with the right kind of food.
When you eat artificial, unnatural foods, the natural metabolic process will not happen properly. You will not get your much-needed nutrients, and will in fact poison your body from the toxins that are released. These toxins are closely related to an increased acidity level, which leads to all sorts of illnesses and ailments: obesity, hypertension, heart disease and osteoporosis, to name a few.
Consequently, our body needs more water to balance and eliminate the unnatural/unhealthy substances, which will leave us in a state of dehydration. If you like to eat artificial food, you should be conscious that you will need to drink more water to supply the loss.
Toxicity is closely related to increase of the acidity level which leads to all kinds of illness and alignments, obesity, hypertension, heart diseases and osteoporosis, been only few of them.
This doesn’t mean that acidic foods are automatically bad for you. In fact, your body needs a balance of acidic and alkaline-producing foods. In general, acid-producing foods can be found in animal products, while fruits and vegetables are examples of alkaline foods.
What this does mean is that you should avoid artificial, unnatural products. If you regularly consume these types of foods, you must drink more water to balance and eliminate these substances.
So now that you know all you have to do to battle bad food is drink extra water does not mean do that. You should still eat healthy while drinking water because this gives you energy. We are all after all seeking for more energy and being healthy.
