acqua alcalina maniva e sport


When sports are practiced, a lot of oxygen is consumed and the energy is metabolized by working the muscles. These processes create free radicals, lactic acid and a light metabolic acidosis, decreasing the pH.

A proper replacement of liquids helps maintain the hydration and favors both one’s health and physical performance. To favour the correct hydration, we recommend consumption a few hours before the sports activity, as well as during it.

The consumption of alkaline water, that has alkaline forming minerals such as calcium, magnesium and potassium, positively interferes in all acid products induced by physical activity.6
