What is alkaline water? Alkaline water is a kind of water which has a PH higher than 7. It is known by its vast effect: prevention of formation of free radicals, flushing of toxins from the cells, provision of essential minerals, promotion of normal blood flow and maintenance of normal blood pH.
As they are very easy to make, there are several ways to make it:
Water ionizers: Experts recognize the method as the most effective as it comes with many benefits which include:
- High pH: it’s easy to set the ionizer to a high pH which ensures that you get high pH water. The machine is also very accurate; therefore, you get the pH that you set.
- Antioxidant rich: studies have shown that the ionization process not only aids in alkalinizing water, it also ensures that the water is rich in antioxidants. The antioxidants play a major role in preventing cancer.
- Smaller cluster size: the ionization process aids in reducing the cluster size of the water. Due to the small cluster size, the ionized water is able to permeate the body cells more easily thus increasing your hydration and less bloating.
- Filtration: ionizers come with in-built filters that remove yeast, bacteria, pesticides, heavy metals and chemicals. This ensures that the water you drink is free from harmful chemicals.
pH drops: they are great when you are travelling. There are many manufacturers making the drops and all you need to do is to buy the drops that you want. pH drops contain high alkaline minerals that raise the alkalinity of the water giving you a great alkaline boost. In addition to increasing the pH of water, alkaline drops are also very portable. Their main flaw is that they tend to be expensive. You also have to filter the water before you drink it.
Water distillers: here water is boiled thus you kill all the bacteria and viruses. The water then vaporizes to separate out minerals, bacteria, nitrates, lead and other contaminants. This does a good job in purifying water. To make the water alkaline you should use alkaline drops.
