What Is Alkaline Water?

The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. pH numbers measure how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale from 0 to 14. The higher the pH level, the more alkaline (and less acidic) the substance is. The alkaline water systems that we at Miami Water & Air install work by increasing your water’s pH levels through the addition of calcium and magnesium. As a result of a more balanced, neutral pH, your water will taste better.

Is Alkaline Water Better for You?

Alkaline water is a bit of a controversial topic, but only because there isn’t enough research to say with 100% certainty that it’s better than other types of water out there. However, some studies have suggested that alkaline water might be beneficial for certain bodily functions and ailments, including:

  • Acid reflux – Drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux.
  • Stool – A study conducted in Japan showed that drinking alkaline electrolyzed water slightly improved stool in 60 participants.
  • Blood flow – Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels, and a study of 100 people in 2016 found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a workout.

These scientific studies show that there are benefits to drinking alkaline water, and proponents of this type of water often believe it has even more health benefits, including:

  • Pro-aging properties
  • Colon-cleansing properties
  • Weight loss
  • Cancer resistance
  • Immune system support
  • hydration and skin health

However, more studies need to be conducted to prove these claims. Fortunately, alkaline drinking water is considered safe, and there is no evidence that demonstrates any negative side effects. As a result, you have nothing to lose by drinking alkaline water, and may even gain some health benefits along the way.
