Still Water with a Natural pH
The term alkaline water refers to the pH of the water. The pH scale runs from zero to 14, with 7 as the neutral mid-point. Liquids with a pH of 1 are very acidic, and liquids with a pH of 13 are very alkaline. Human blood has a pH of approximately 7.4 and therefore it is slightly alkaline. It is essential that our bodies maintain our pH within a narrow optimal range.
Nowadays, it seems like everybody is saying that alkaline water is best for your metabolism, and it’s true. However, if water is artificially alkalinized (ionization using a process called electrolysis), it doesn’t mean it will actually do the job of alkalizing your body. The only thing that neutralizes acid is alkalinity, not the fact that water is alkaline. If water is alkaline, it doesn’t mean it has substantial alkalinity. There have to be alkaline minerals in the water to start with if it is going to achieve alkalinity.
In addition, the use of an ionizer doesn’t mean that your water is now better: the source remains an important part of water purity. Alkaline ionizers may even be unsafe, because they don’t remove contaminants.
So if you want to choose an alkaline water that will actually work when it comes to neutralizing gastric acid, it should have a naturally alkaline pH, provided by nature rather than by manmade devices.
