A Guide To Alkaline Drops For All Beverages

More than one-third of Americans are considered to be obese; about 1 in 10 have diabetes, and it's estimated that nearly 1.9 million people will have been diagnosed with cancer by the end of 2022. The writing is on the wall: we are facing a health crisis and it is reaching epidemic proportions.

What’s driving this cycle of disease? The truth is it’s primarily our diet, sedentary behavior, and stressful lifestyle. Experts agree that the biggest factor contributing to the current epidemic of degenerative diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and cancer is the modern diet.

Think about it: if someone dies from heart failure due to arterial blockages, the cause of death would be listed as “heart disease". But the truth is, it was probably their diet and lifestyle that was the key contributor to the death.

While there is no magic bullet or quick fix that can neutralize or reverse the impact of a poor diet and unhealthy lifestyle on our mind and body, there’s something that can set you on a new path towards well-being and offer health benefits that you can enjoy for a lifetime – alkaline drops (also known as pH booster drops).*

What Are pH Booster Drops?

To understand what pH booster drops are, it is important to begin by learning about alkaline water. Alkaline water is just regular water that has been ionized so its pH level lies between 9 and 11. The “pH” stands for potential hydrogen, which is a measure of alkalinity or acidity. The pH level of any substance represents the activity of its hydrogen ions in terms of molecules per liter.

The pH value has been devised into a scale of whole numbers from 0 to 14 to make it easier to measure and quantify. With a pH level of 0, a substance is considered very acidic. On the other hand, a level of 14 means a substance is highly alkaline. At a pH value of 7, hydrogen ion activity is exactly neutral. The more active hydrogen ions are in water, the more health benefits it offers. That’s why health professionals use the word “hydrate” to mean the consumption of a healthy amount of water.

For good health, both the amount and quality of water are of critical importance. Quality water doesn’t just mean clean water, but the water that is rich in electrons and has the ideal molecular structure to optimize hydrogen ion activity (i.e., hydration).

Simply put, alkaline water promotes good health. In alkaline water, the hydrogen ions can move freely because the molecular structure provides plenty of space to do so. Unfortunately, alkaline water doesn’t occur on its own. It either has to be produced in a water ionizer machine, or it can be created by adding pH booster drops to ordinary drinking water.

Alkalizing booster drops are a potent combination of electrolytes, essential minerals, and purified water. For example, Alkalife® pH Booster Drops™ use a combination of potassium hydroxide and sodium hydroxide to create the perfect formula. Just adding a few drops of this mixture can turn ordinary tap water into antioxidant-rich pH 10 alkaline water that helps the human body fight off damaging free radicals, thus preventing sickness and disease.*

Do Alkaline Drops Really Work?

When you add alkaline drops to a glass of water or any other liquid substance (coffee, smoothie, soup, etc.), they quickly dissolve and ionize. By ionizing the water, these drops make it easy for your body to absorb hydration as alkaline water contains smaller molecules. It also gives calcium and magnesium a negative charge so the body is able to identify them as absorbable easier.

Multiple studies have been conducted since the early 1950s regarding the benefits of alkaline water. One study showed that drinking water with a pH balance of at least 8.8 may help reduce the levels of pepsin, which is the main enzyme that leads to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

A similar study observed a group of athletes taking alkaline water for three weeks while training and monitoring the effect. The results showed that the alkaline water enhances hydration, improves acid-base balance, and increases anaerobic exercise performance.

People who drink alkaline water have reported feeling the following benefits:

  • It slows down the aging process.*
  • It regulates the body’s pH levels.*
  • It helps with colon cleansing, i.e., flushing toxins from the system.*
  • It reduces high blood pressure.*
  • It prevents chronic disease.*
  • It helps in lowering dangerous cholesterol.*
  • It reduces the risk of diabetes.*
  • It helps with weight loss.*
  • It supports the hydration and detoxification process.*

Athletes and those who enjoy working out may benefit greatly from drinking alkaline water. It allows active people to hold on to more fluid in their cardiovascular system while reducing their urine output and blood osmolality, which is a measure of chemical particle concentration in blood.* High plasma osmolality is linked to an elevated risk of a fatal stroke. 

High osmolality is the efficiency of the process that causes a liquid to pass through the wall of a living cell, equalizing the concentration of the solution on both sides of the membrane. Intense exercise causes your muscles to create more hydrogen ions than the body can efficiently eliminate. Alkaline water can help alleviate this, which is why the benefits of alkaline water drops may be more apparent in those who frequently exercise.*

Furthermore, organs deteriorate and disease sets in over time if you don’t flush out acidic waste. The most important organs to protect against acidic waste are the lungs, kidneys, and skin. The kidneys regulate the acid and alkaline balance in the bloodstream and eliminate solid or fixed acids through urination.

Potassium is a key electrolyte used by the body and one of the substances that are eliminated by the kidneys. Its role is to regulate the acid-base balance in the blood and tissues, and control muscle contractions, heartbeat, energy metabolism, and biochemical reactions. The body doesn’t conserve potassium, however, so it needs to be constantly replenished. This is why fluids that are high in electrolytes are very beneficial.

The pH drops contain these essential electrolytes, including sodium, potassium, and bicarbonate. Water enriched with alkaline drops is also beneficial in helping the kidneys to keep functioning at optimum health limits.* The balance of electrolytes controls specific processes, such as:

  • Maintaining the stability of cell walls.
  • Allowing cells to generate energy.
  • Moving water and fluid through the body.
  • Helping in the function of body cells.

Why You Should Be Adding Alkaline Booster Drops to Your Regular Water

The quality of tap water varies a great deal from state to state and from city to city. Most tap water contains chemicals to kill germs, algae, and fungi.

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which mandates control and quality of tap water, requires water suppliers to provide a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) for any area providing water to 100,000 people or more. Water companies must give a detailed account of the source and results of testing. These results are posted online for anyone to see if you want to check the water in your area.

Tap water may contain chemicals that help in treating strong fungi and bacteria, but they come with a number of potential side effects on the body. These harmful chemicals include:

Benzene: It has been shown to have damaging effects on bone marrow, decrease red blood cells, and lead to anemia.

Atrazine: It may cause low fetal weight, slow development of fetuses, and urinary, heart, and limb defects in humans.

Arsenic: It may cause cancer of the bladder, lungs, kidney, liver, skin, prostate, and nasal passages.

Adding alkaline booster drops to your tap water will alter its pH balance by removing most pollutants and impurities.* Plus, if your diet is high in animal protein, grains, sugar, or beer – all of which create a high-acid load on the body – it can damage your kidneys, create kidney stones, and weaken the bones over time. Alkaline water has the ability to flush out the excess acid from your system.* Without a predominance of acid, many diseases can’t develop.

Please keep in mind that while pH drops raise the alkalinity level of water, they don’t automatically filter water. We recommend putting the drops in bottled water or filtered tap water. 

Enhance the Taste and Quality of Your Food with pH Booster Drops

Alkaline drops are not just useful for drinking water, they can also be used in other ways. For example, you can use alkaline water as you cook your food. Cooking in pH-boosted water helps retain the flavor of many vegetables and meats, while also cutting the acidity and bitterness. Unlike acidic water, which can break down the flavor of food, alkaline water enhances the flavor. Simply add a few drops of a pH booster to a cup of water and use it to prepare your meals.

In relation to this, alkaline drop use in the kitchen is not limited to cooking. You may have heard that farming practices include using a lot of chemicals to preserve fresh produce for easier transportation and longer shelf life. Take formaldehyde, for example. It is widely used as a preservative to increase the shelf life of fish and fruits. The problem is, exposure to formaldehyde can irritate the eyes, lungs, throat, and skin. Repeated exposure can also lead to cancer. There are several other preservatives that are known to be carcinogenic.

Alkaline water is an easy way to wash off these harmful additives from your food. Take a big pot, fill it with tap water, add a few drops of Alkalife® pH Booster Drops™, then soak your fruits and vegetables in it. This will remove all of the dirt, pesticides, and other unwanted chemicals, making them safer to eat. You can also clean meats, like poultry and beef, with this water to get rid of food-borne pathogens.

Other Uses for Alkaline Drops and Alkaline Water

Now that you know how healthy alkaline booster drops are, you will be glad to know that you can use them to make all of your favorite beverages healthier!

Coffee

That morning latte or black coffee that you love so much? It has an average pH of 4.8 to 5.10, making it extremely acidic. This might not pose a problem for most coffee drinkers, but increased acidity can adversely impact certain health conditions, such as IBS and acid reflux. By adding Alkalife® pH Booster Drops™ to your coffee, you can drastically reduce the acidity and enjoy the benefits of additional essential alkaline minerals. 

Tea

Generally speaking, black tea and green tea are less acidic than coffee. However, bottled iced teas and teas containing fruit juices have a high acid content. If you add milk to your black tea, that will also make it more acidic. Whether you are suffering from acid reflux or simply want to lower the acidity in your diet, adding pH booster drops will go a long way in making teas even healthier.

Smoothies & Juices

Although freshly-made smoothies and juices are already full of nutrients, it doesn’t hurt to make them even more alkalizing. Just put a few alkaline drops in your daily smoothie and it will ensure that you stay hydrated throughout the day.

Soups & Stews

Alkaline mineral drops work just as well in hot foods like soups, stews, and gravies. You can add them to your dish once it’s ready to be served. The Alkalife® pH Booster Drops™ come in a handy little bottle, so you can carry them with you to restaurants in order to enhance the health of your meals out.

Salad Dressings 

The tasteless, odorless Alkalife® pH Booster Drops™ can be easily added to your homemade salad dressings, no matter if you use olive oil, lemon/lime juice, maple syrup, Greek yogurt, balsamic vinegar, or other ingredients.
