As you may already know, it is crucial for your overall health to maintain a balanced body pH. An excellent way to do this is by supplementing your daily diet with some alkaline water. While this may sound like your high-school days’ chemistry class, alkaline water refers to water with a higher pH than regular tap water. Most tap water has a pH of 7. The pH level of your body impacts the functioning of your body’s cells, tissues, glands, organs, and systems.


The Human Digestive Tract pH Range
The Human Digestive Tract pH Range

The pH of the body is not homogeneous and different parts of the body have different pH at which they function at their best. The stomach, for instance, has an acidic pH between 1.5 and 3.5. This is necessary for proper food digestion. Then from acidic in the duodenum, the pH increases in the small intestine going from a pH of about 6.0 to 7.4. By ‘internal environment’, we’re referring to the pH of your blood which should be between 7.365 and 7.45. The human body is able to maintain this range at all cost because any change in pH outside of the range can cause many serious health issues if not death.

Why do we have to keep the body’s pH balanced? What made it unbalanced in the first place? The answers to these are all around us in this toxic environment that we live in. Our society is full of so many agents that could affect our body’s pH levels hence our health. We find such toxins every day in processed and sugary foods, polluted air, pesticides and herbicides used on crops. Even the day to day stress people go through could lead to the rise in body’s acidity.

Symptoms such as:

  • Constipation,
  • Confusion,
  • Salt cravings,
  • Rapid shallow breath,
  • Frequent urination,
  • Swelling and bloating,
  • Poor brain function/brain fog,
  • Poor sleep, tremors,
  • Acne and many more

Are the results of the high acidity of the body’s internal environment (Acidosis).

If these don’t scare you yet, then I guess nothing will. It is then necessary to maintain a balanced body pH, and one of the best remedies for acidosis is alkaline water.


As stated earlier, alkaline water is the easiest way to balance your body’s pH. Alkaline water found on the market has a pH ranging between 8 and 9. To make water alkaline, you need to add some alkaline minerals in it. Several studies have proven that alkaline water remedies certain health conditions. People publish testimonies every day about the positive effects of drinking alkaline water. Among other things, they claim:

  • better blood sugar levels regulation for diabetics,
  • great anti-aging properties,
  • proper maintenance of cholesterol levels,
  • It promotes proper electrolyte activity and efficient heart function,
  • Healthier circulatory system,
  • It has great colon-cleansing properties,
  • And it is good for bone and digestive health.

Some suffering from various cancers even claims to have found some relief.

Alkaline water is not synthesized in a classified high-tech laboratory. It is a mix of all natural ingredients, so there is no reason to panic. You can buy it in many grocery or health food stores or even online.

By taking alkaline water on a regular basis, it helps neutralize acidity in the body. Keep acidity in check and live a long and healthy life. The higher the pH of your alkaline water, the faster it will help the body revert the negative effect of acidosis. So when you go out looking for alkaline water, look for one with a pH of 10 if not greater.
