What is Alkaline Water?
Alkaline Water is water that has a pH of 8 or higher which is more than regular drinking water and contains such minerals like potassium, magnesium, calcium and sodium. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body. Alkaline water also has an oxygen reduction potential (ORP). This rating refers to how much anti-oxidation the water can perform. This relates to the pH of the water and as you drink it, determines its effectiveness as an antioxidant in your body. The higher the pH, the more oxygen reduction potential as an antioxidant within your body. Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9. However, pH alone isn’t enough to impart substantial alkalinity to water.
