Drinking alkaline water can help prevent disease and slows the aging process. Also it stops free radicals from forming, flushes toxins from cells and prevents toxins from accumulating, provides essential minerals, promotes normal blood flow and maintains normal blood pH. Alkaline water also is said to be better at hydrating the body because it penetrates cells more effectively. It helps to neutralize acids and remove toxins from the body.
Alkaline water has a higher pH level than normal tap water. The majority of the foods we eat create acid wastes in our system. Drinking alkaline water might maintain a optimal health and energy, particularly as acid water ((less than pH 7) is a hotbed of microorganisms, bacteria and viruses.
