I’m a big fan of alkaline water, and we use it at ZeLin. The battle in your body is all about pH levels, acidity and oxidation. The more alkaline foods and drinks we can put in our body, the more it will slow down the oxidation (aging) process of free radicals. I spent years eating vegetables with a high alkalinity, not thinking about the water I drink. Many bottled waters contain a pH lower than human blood.
Human blood pH is about 7.3ish, a soda is 3.5ish and green vegetation can be as high as 9 or 9.5. Anytime we consume anything under 7.3ish, there will be free radicals left in the body causing oxidation. To maintain the blood’s pH level, the body will leach minerals from places like bones…so the rest of the body suffers to keep the blood in equilibrium.
The adult human body usually ranges between 50-70% water, and if you are not paying attention to the alkalinity of the water you drink, the vegetation will barely make a dent in your health. If you check the alkalinity of many bottled waters, you will find they are below blood pH. Tap water is typically neutral because substances like sodium bicarbonate are added to it. The health ramifications of these excess substances in your tap water is another discussion completely.
So YES, I am a fan of alkaline water!
