In our new release book GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ, we explore the relationship between drinking water and increasing IQ.
This might fit into the stating the bleeding obvious category, but drinking water really can make a difference to mental alertness and overall cognitive skills.
Here’s why: every time you drink water it increases the brain’s electrochemical activity. Conversely, dehydration slows electrochemical activity and effectively makes you dumber.
Therefore, staying hydrated is a scientifically valid way to keep sharp mentally.
Be warned, though, drinking the right sort of water is as important as drinking enough water. And no, ordinary tap water won’t do the job folks. After all, tap water usually contains high levels of fluoride.
Numerous studies have shown fluoride reduces IQ levels and in some cases even causes brain damage. Never a good thing for those wanting to become geniuses!
In January 2013, physician and author Dr. Joseph Mercola wrote an article for the Huffington Post titled Harvard Study Confirms Fluoride Reduces Children’s IQ.
The article states, “A recently-published Harvard University meta-analysis funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has concluded that children who live in areas with highly fluoridated water have “significantly lower” IQ scores than those who live in low fluoride areas.”
The Harvard study showed that fluoride causes neurotoxicity, which negatively impacts learning and memory.
The Huffington Post article continues, “There are so many scientific studies showing the direct, toxic effects of fluoride on your body, it’s truly remarkable that it’s NOT considered a scientific consensus by now. Despite the evidence against it, fluoride is still added to 70 percent of U.S. public drinking water supplies.”
Besides fluoride, there are a whole host of other contaminants usually found in tap water – such as chlorine and lead – and none of these will do an aspiring genius’s brain any favors.
Those wishing to increase their IQ levels would be wise to only drink pure water. Filtered water (either bottled or from a home/office filtration system) is certainly better than tap water. However, contrary to what filtered water companies tell customers, their product often contains numerous impurities – sometimes as many as are found in tap water.
The only pure water available on Earth is distilled water.
Distilled water…condensed steam.
As American medical doctor Dr. Andrew Weil states on his website, distilled water is “water that has been turned into steam so its impurities are left behind. The steam is then condensed to make pure water.”
Dr. Weil continues, “The process of distillation kills and removes virtually all bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, and other organic and inorganic contaminants. Once distilled, the water is as pure as water can reasonably be.”
It should be noted here that some health researchers believe distilled water can be detrimental to health if taken ongoing and long-term rather than for the more commonly recommended short periods or fasts. This counter theory suggests that drinking water that is completely demineralized, as is the case with distilled water, is detrimental to health in the long-run.
Dr. Weil, however, believes otherwise. He says, “While it’s true that distillation removes minerals as it eliminates various other contaminants from water, I don’t feel this is a problem. We get our minerals from food, not water.
“As far as acidity goes,” he continues, “distilled water is close to a neutral pH and has no effect on the body’s acid/base balance. Distilled water is safe to drink, and the kind of water I use myself.”
If the aspiring genius hunts hard enough, bottled distilled water can be found in some supermarkets and department stores. Otherwise, water distillers can be purchased for the home.
According to our research, distilled water is likely to have the most positive effects on the brain. However, we recommend consult with your doctor first.
