Alkaline Water: Benefits and risks

Alkaline Water: Benefits and risks

The 'alkaline' in alkaline water refers to its pH level.

The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14.

Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water.

Thereby, alkaline water is believed to neutralize the acid in your body.

Alkaline water is believed to have pro-aging properties, colon-cleansing properties, immune system support, hydration and skin health properties.

However, there is a lack of proven scientific research to support the claimed health benefits.

Alkaline drinking water is considered safe and there’s no evidence that demonstrates negative side effects.
