Some people claim that water with a high pH “balances” out your body. They add that it can also help lower the “acidity” of your blood. But these claims are not really based on any facts.
The reality is that our body is very efficient, and it constantly tries to maintain a pH level of 7.35 to 7.45, which is safe. Drinking either alkaline or even acidic water won’t magically change your body’s pH levels. In this regard, the claims about alkaline water are not true.
However, this does not mean that drinking it is bad for you.
In fact, if this type of water can encourage people to stay hydrated, then that’s a good thing. It’s a much healthier option compared to soft drinks or other sweetened beverages.
In general, alkaline water is safe, and doesn’t cause any significant health problems. This means that if you want to try and drink alkaline water instead of regular water, then feel free to do so!
Just remember that it’s not the “cure-all” that some people make it out to be.
