You have heard about alkaline water in the market, which claims as healthier choice with higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body.
However, we believe that acidity should first addressed by food, not water.
What is alkaline water?
Alkaline water is the water that’s less acidic than tap water. It has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Normal drinking water is generally a neutral pH of 7. So if the water is 7.5, you can say it’s alkaline water.
Many alternative medicine practitioners believe the minerals contained in alkaline water increase absorption that hydrates cells throughout the body, resulted in curing or preventing many diseases. Besides, it contains anti-oxidants that may prevent cells from aging drastically.
Do you need alkaline water?
The concept with alkaline water is: Tap water contains different dissolved elements that influence its pH level. Pure water has a pH level close to 7. Alkaline water has a pH above 7. So the idea is that to create a more alkaline balance in your body, you should drink water with a higher pH.
Nevertheless, Dr Mercola has pointed out some issues based on his study:
√ Balance is Key
Demonstrated in a Swedish well water study, which found both pH extremes to be problematic. Our body simply was not designed to drink highly alkaline water all the time. It is best to be very careful when it comes to water you drink on daily basis.
√ Living Water
Some of the most healthful waters in the world, which emerge from mountain springs are actually acidic in the range of 6.5. That is “living water”, which is living in the same way that raw food is “living food”. If you really want to alkalinize your body, it would seem wise to use the highest quality water possible, which is obtained from vegetable juice.
√ Back to Basics
Nowadays people obsessed with diet loaded with sugar and processed foods, which it makes sense for us to drink alkaline water to buffer the pH in our body. Our ancestors had no problems with pH because they ate healthier, rich in plant foods and high-quality meats. Remember, the food you eat is critical to your body pH.

Could the cure to cancer be as simple as drinking alkaline water ?
Answered by Keck Medicine of USC, comprises of 500+ internationally renowned doctors at a leading academic medical center, drinking alkaline water is “not very likely” to prevent cancer. They offered their expertise insights that our body is really good at maintaining a safe, slightly alkaline level of 7.4.
Take alkaline water, make alkaline urine
“Unless you have a kidney problem, chugging alkaline water by the gallon, you’ll just pee it out in the end anyway because you body has to be acidic to break down the food while pancreatic secretions and enzymes neutralized them back to slightly alkaline.” Our body is an efficient machine, normal water helps us to stay hydrated.
