The human body has a blood pH of 7.365 and it is essential to maintain this pH balance. Much of what we eat, such as processed sugar, meat, dairy, and coffee has an acidic effect on the pH balance. As an effect, the body has to work extra hard to restore itself to a neutral pH. Alkaline water greatly assists in the balancing process by introducing a higher pH to the body to offset the low pH and therefore, the natural balance is reestablished.
Alkaline water significantly helps the body absorb minerals because of its high oxygen content. This is highly important because, if the body does not have enough minerals, such as calcium, it tries to find it elsewhere and could potentially steal it from the bones in our body. This weakens the bones and could cause major problems later in life.
