Benefits of Alkaline Water

Alkaline water has proven to be beneficial in several ways to your body and your health. Water that contains alkaline has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Due to the higher pH, it can assist in neutralizing the acid in your body. Some studies have shown that drinking alkaline water (with a pH of 8.8) may aid in deactivating pepsin, the enzyme that causes acid reflux.

Another study suggested that drinking alkaline ionized water may have benefits for people with high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

Those who consumed high-pH water reduced viscosity by 6.3 percent compared to 3.36 percent with standard purified drinking water. This means blood flowed more efficiently with alkaline water. This can increase oxygen delivery throughout out the body.

Regular tap water has higher acidity than alkaline water. Alkaline water contains Calcium, Silica, Potassium, Magnesium, and Bicarbonate, all of which are vital for maintaining a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Not only can it quench your thirst, but studies have also shown that drinking Alkaline water after working out can help your blood flow more efficiently and deliver oxygen more effectively. Along with minerals, alkaline water also contains negative oxidation-reduction potential. By including ORP, the water can act as a pro- or antioxidant.  

Although more research is needed, proponents of alkaline water still believe in its proposed health benefits. These include:

  • anti-aging properties (via liquid antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body)

  • colon-cleansing properties

  • immune system support

  • hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties

  • weight loss

  • cancer resistance
