11. Raise your body’s pH with alkaline water.
The body functions at its best in an alkaline state. Water used to be neutral, but now it’s acidic and contributes to inflammation. Alkaline water helps decrease inflammation.

BPAs are known carcinogens that may cause cancer and other autoimmune challenges.
