Are You Drinking Enough Akaline Water? 5 Great Reasons to Drink It

If you are interested in improving your health and the health of your family, you have no doubt come to realize that “alkaline water” is one of the biggest buzz words on health websites and forums.

However, rarely do these sources define this term so you may be wondering, “What is alkaline water?”. The most simple definition of alkaline water is the following:

Water that has a pH greater than 7. The pH of alkaline water used for drinking purposes usually ranges between 7.5 and 9.0.

Like most things in life, however, a more meaningful answer is a bit more complicated so let’s explore this subject a little deeper.

Suppose you were to put three glasses on your counter. In the first glass, you pour in tap water from your home. In the second glass, you put a filtered version of that same tap water. In the third glass, you put filtered alkaline water made from the same tap water. If you were to closely examine the water in all three glasses, do you think you could see a difference?

Try as you may, you will not see a difference between the filtered tap water and the filtered alkaline water even if you squint and take a very close look. However, looks can be deceiving as they say!

If you were to were to do a taste comparison between these two types of water made from the same tap water, you would definitely notice a big difference in taste, with almost everyone preferring the taste of the filtered alkaline water.

Depending on how contaminated your tap water is, you may be able to see a slight color difference between the plain tap water and the filtered tap water. However, there will be no color difference between the filtered tap water and the filtered alkaline water.

What makes the filtered alkaline water taste so much better than filtered tap water?

This is due to changes made in the molecular structure of the water when it is alkalized. Simply put, the water molecules are arranged differently! Instead of the water forming big clumps of ten to twelve molecules like you find in unfiltered tap water and most bottled water, only four or five water molecules on average clump together in alkaline water. This gives the water a delightful velvety feel on your tongue.

Alkaline water also has a lot more negatively charged hydrogen ions. This is why alkaline water is sometimes referred to as, “ionized water.” These extra ions give the water a more refreshing taste!

Let’s go back to our original question, “What is alkaline water?”

When plain tap water is converted into alkaline water, you can certainly taste the difference but you can’t actually see the difference because the changes take place at the molecular level.

More importantly, when the molecular structure of tap water that has been converted to alkaline water using something like a portable alkaline ionized water pitcher, it becomes similar in molecular structure to natural spring water.

In other words, it has the same molecular structure that Mother Nature provided in streams and creeks that our ancestors drank from on a daily basis.

5 Great Reasons for Drinking Alkaline Water

  1. Lowers Cholesterol Levels
  2. Antioxidant Cleaning
  3. Weight Loss
  4. Anti-Aging
  5. Better Hydration

It stands to reason that the human body evolved in a way to absorb the smaller water molecule clumps found in natural spring water than the artificially produced large clumps formed in industrially contaminated water.

Likewise, the human body evolved to be nourished by water that has a much higher level of negative hydrogen ions than you find in tap water. It evolved to favor the ion levels you find in natural spring fed creeks and streams!

Alkaline water is what the human body evolved with and this is why it is so much healthier to drink than the industrialized water we find in tap water and bottled water.

Portable alkaline ionized water pitchers come with two ways to convert tap water into water that simulates what you would draw out of an natural spring fed creek. First, it filters out a good portion of the pollutants. Second, it makes the water alkaline again, de-clumping the water molecules and increasing the negative hydrogen atoms that form one of the most powerful antioxidants known in nature!

If you suffer from a debilitating disease such as diabetes, chronic inflammation, or chronic fatigue syndrome, alkaline water can vastly improve these conditions.

Alkaline water also shows great promise in reducing age related diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease For more info check out

If you have children, a spouse, or an aging parent at home and want to protect them, one of the best ways to do this is serve them alkaline water every day. Portable alkaline ionized water pitchers make this super easy to do and very affordable.
