I drank my first and likely last bottle of alkaline water on Saturday.
There weren’t any ingredients listed on the bottle so I can only assume it was just water, which is exactly what it tasted like. It was cold, refreshing, and bland. Just like water should be. I didn’t have any superpowers after drinking it and I didn’t feel alkalized.
Probably because I wasn’t alkalized and my pH stayed the same.
That’s equilibrium for you.
So, what about water actually matters?I’d be more concerned whether or not your water is fluoridated and whether or not your drinking water is clean. I’d also like to point out that minerals in the water can also change pH, so increased calcium in water = increased alkalinity.
So pure water, in the literal sense, without any minerals in it should have a pH of 7, if there are minerals in the water the pH may rise above 7 which is then more alkaline. Reverse osmosis water (often your lowest price bottled water that doesn’t say Spring Water) has a pH often sitting below 7, more acidic.
Orange juice pH- 3
To think it would is so basic. (nerd joke… get it?)
