Alkaline Water: is it really better for you?

We’ve seen many fad water marketing ideas come and go over the years. But one that seems to be sticking around is alkaline water.
It’s the best of the best if you are a bottled water marketer.. but does it really help our health?

Why is alkaline water so special?

Alkaline water, AKA ionized water, has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Certain brands of bottled alkaline water have a pH level of 9.
Non-alkaline water typically sits at 7 – right in the middle of the pH scale. (Some can be much lower – acidic.

The pH scale has a range of 1 to 14. It allows us to determine how alkaline or acidic a liquid is –
pH1 = high acidity
pH 14 = very alkaline.

Let’s investigate alkaline water’s benefits.

We always fill up our stainless steel water bottles here at home from our UltraStream water filter and slurp as we pump at the gym. Of course, with UltraStream water it’s not just the natural alkaline minerals – it’s also the hydrogen infused in the water.

Today we understand the awful environmental; result of our rampant single-use plastics. An area larger than France in the Atlantic is covered with plastic waste. But that’s not all. We now know that our plastic addiction means we are ingesting the equivalent of a credit card of plastic every day.

How to alkalize at home.

  • Lemon
    Grab a bunch of lemons and start squeezing!
    Lemons are acidic, scoring between 2 and 3 on the pH scale.
    But post-metabolism, lemons leave an alkaline footprint. You’ll gain their alkalising effects (and zing) Jsimply by making a habit of adding a slice (or two) for reshly squeezed lemon juice to your drinking water.
  • Baking Soda
    As an alkaline substance, baking soda (AKA sodium bicarbonate) can raise your drinking water’s pH level. Mix half a tablespoon with four litres of clean, potable water. Wait for it to dissolve before you start drinking.
  • Alkaline Booster
    Of course if you really want the full effect of alkaline minerals it’s best to use a form that gives you the right amount of the big four – calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium in the right proportions. Our Alkaline Booster, formulated by our in-house naturopath to optimise absorption is as simple as one teaspoon a day in water. If you are a workhorse who carries your water with you, the AlkaSachets will do the same job in your portable bottle.
    You can even alkalize water naturally using liquid alkaline drops – a great way to alkalize when travelling.
  • Water filter systems
    Enhance tap water’s alkaline properties with bench top or undersink filters that help raise the pH levels. Not only does this help purify tap water, it also makes regular drinking water go from neutral to alkaline on the pH scale. Once installed it’s the easiest way to get your alkaline top-up every day. And if you decide on our UltraStream, you’ll also be getting added antioxidants in the infused molecular hydrogen, and an extraordinary level of protection from a huge range of modern contaminants, viruses, bacteria and more.

    And of course, once installed, you’ll be saving hundreds of dollars plus doing your part in protecting our fragile planet. In the end, any way you go to alkalize is going to support your body’s ongoing fight against acidic dehydration and inflammation. It’s a scientific fact; alkaline neutralises acid!
