The gut instincts on pH levels
Explore the link between pH levels and gut health by dipping into this nostalgic litmus test
With growing health consciousness, alkaline water systems have become popular among Singaporean households. Advocates tout its potential to boost immunity, prevent osteoporosis, and lower cholesterol, among other benefits. Others warn about the dangers of acidic water, linking it to various diseases.
If your gut health is a concern, you're not alone – 1 in 10 Singaporeans struggle with irritable bowel syndrome(IBS). Acknowledge and prioritise it, as poor gut health extends beyond bloating and bowel issues. Furthermore, imbalances in gut bacteria can trigger inflammation and increase the risk of colorectal cancer. This type of cancer is unfortunately one of the three leading cancers in Singapore, and it affects all genders and ethnicities.
While alkaline water may seem enticing, there are many other practices to adopt for a healthier gut and body. Make well-being a priority with regular screenings, healthier habits, and a mindful, preventative approach to self-care.
Lastly, make sure you are covered with a critical illness plan to be prepared for life’s uncertainties.
