Alkaline Water Explained: Properties, Benefits and More
What is alkaline water?
Let’s take a trip back to our high school chemistry class. A neutral pH level sits at 7. This is where plain tap water sits. Now, if we decrease the pH levels below 7, our water will become acidic. However, if we increase the pH levels above 7, we find the holy grail that is alkaline water.
Basically, water that is high in minerals that up the pH level and are good for our bodies is water we refer to as alkaline. Don’t worry, alkaline water still tastes just as refreshing as neutral tap water. You won’t even notice the difference!
How is alkaline water created?
You can find alkaline water in natural settings. Take New Zealand, for example; due to their naturally mountainous and volcanic terrain, they have an abundance of naturally created alkaline water. The water that runs down from mountains, through springs and streams, generally flows over rocks that are high in minerals such as magnesium and potassium. These minerals are absorbed into the water, transforming it into an alkaline state.
What this particular product does is take standard, neutral tap water and incorporate minerals to increase the pH level, transforming the plain tap water into an alkaline state.
What are the benefits of alkaline water?
In all honesty, there haven’t been nearly enough studies around the benefits of alkaline water. There have, however, been many firsthand accounts from everyday people who have added alkaline water to their diet and found that they’ve seen vast improvement in their health.
There have been mentions of alkaline water improving energy levels and curing acid reflux, due to its ability to help offset acids in our diet. It’s also been known to improve gut health, assisting in helping thwart gut problems with its antimicrobial properties.
So, what do you think? Have you introduced alkaline water into your diet to improve your health? How did it work out?
