The build-up of acids within the human body significantly alters the natural balance needed to maintain a healthy physical state. The acid concentration of the foods and drinks we consume impacts the body in multiple ways leading to declining health outcomes that compound over time. Things that most of us eat and drink every day can play a factor in the body’s ability to sustain a positive pH balance. 

Yet, many people interested in reversing the process of acidic damage still ask the question, “Why should I drink water with a pH of 10?” In this article, we will briefly cover pH and why the value of 10 is essential when looking for alkaline water that can improve your well-being and is necessary to counter years of acid build-up in the body.

The pH Scale Explained

All water can be measured on the pH scale, determining how alkaline or acidic the water is. The scale ranges from 0 to 14, with 0 being completely acidic and 14 being completely alkaline. Different factors affect pH, such as mineral content and room temperature. Everything above a pH of 7 is considered alkaline, while everything below 7 is acidic. 

Keep in mind that just because something is alkaline does not necessarily mean that it is healthy or safe to drink. Ammonia is highly alkaline and also highly toxic! 

Many people think they can simply drink bicarbonates to get them into the body (such as drinking water mixed with baking soda). They do not realize that bicarbonates have a much lower pH and do not produce as many alkaline minerals when digested. Additionally, drinking baking soda may end up making salt in the blood, which is unhealthy.

Why Should Alkaline Water Have a pH of 10?

When Alkalife founder and Reverse Aging author Sang Whang patented the original Alkalife formula, ionizers were bringing water to a pH of anywhere from 9 to 12. Whang believed that a water pH of 11 or 12 might be safe for short-term cleansing, but sustained drinking of alkaline water with such a high pH might pose issues connected to alkalosis or too much alkalinity in the body. 

Whang then conducted bio-feedback studies and found the ideal mineral combination for Alkalife. With careful science, he created a formula that brought water to a safe and optimal pH of 10 with only a few drops.* Since then, Alkalife has been used by hundreds of thousands of people in over 50 different countries for the past 30 years.

What Are theHealth Benefits of Drinking Alkaline Water?

There has been research done on the benefits of regularly consuming alkaline water. Recently, two small studies have shown a correlation between increased alkaline water intake and the successful treatment of acid reflux disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). In the case of those with acid reflux, it is believed that alkaline water may permanently deactivate an enzyme that causes heartburn. Regarding IBS, individuals who consumed alkaline water with a pH between 8.5 to 10 reported a higher quality-of-life state than those who did not drink alkaline water. Further research is needed to fully understand the connection between alkaline water consumption and its effects on acid reflux and irritable bowel syndrome.

Another study done in China found that people who had previously had high blood sugar, high blood lipids, and high blood pressure lowered the levels of all three of these health factors after consuming alkaline water for a period of 3 to 6 months.* They also found that alkaline water improved blood viscosity after exercise, which may assist in the reduction of cardiovascular pressure caused by post-workout dehydration.* Some of these results have been disputed, and further studies are needed.

As researchers continue to unravel the links between alkaline water and improved well-being, it is important to remember that healthy lifestyle choices, including the regular intake of alkaline water, have positive benefits for the human body.

Not All Alkaline Water Is Created Equal

When choosing an alkaline water supplier, it is vital to make sure that the water they are selling has the proper mineral make-up to be beneficial for the body.

It may be surprising to learn that some alkaline water brands may not even help with the reduction of acidic waste due to their mineral make-up. It is essential to know what minerals have been added to the water and not just if the water is pH 10. Alkaline water causes alkaline minerals (bicarbonates) to be produced by the body, but the body also has to have suitable materials to make bicarbonates to complete the process.*

Alkalife has a patented mixture to make alkaline water because of the body’s need to make potassium and sodium bicarbonates.* With the right minerals available, the body can efficiently and effectively create these bicarbonates. Ionized water generally ionizes calcium in the water, and calcium bicarbonates are formed in the body.* All three of these bicarbonates can effectively reduce acidic waste. Other minerals, such as magnesium, may raise the water's pH without offering the right minerals to make sufficiently strong bicarbonate.* It is important to know your water, live healthy, and stay alkaline!

pH 10 Alkaline Water for Improved Health and a Better Life

Alkaline water with a pH of 10 has resulted from in-depth analysis and carefully conducted biofeedback research performed by Whang. Through his years of experience providing high-quality alkaline water products to reverse the acidic conditions found in the human body due to poor diet and environmental factors, Whang has formulated safe alkaline water with a pH of 10 that can reverse the harmful effects of acid.

Alkalife is a leading provider of alkaline products to improve your body and overall well-being.* For two decades, health-conscious individuals have come to Alkalife for high-quality solutions to acidic build-up and the negative effects on the human body.* Join the countless others that have made the switch to alkaline water products available exclusively from Alkalife.
