What is alkaline water?
The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its potential hydrogen level, commonly called pH. pH is a measure of how acidic or alkaline water is on a scale of 0 to 14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline. 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.
Alkaline water must also contain alkaline minerals and negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). ORP is the ability of water to act as a pro- or antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more antioxidising it is.
Benefits of alkaline water:
Produces antioxidant which protects our cells from damage
Improves our metabolism and helps us process the waste stored in our body
Helps in weight management by reducing potential for fat accumulation
Super-hydrates the skin
Helps to energise body and gives mental clarity
