Alkaline water is a wellness trend that’s sweeping the nation. Countertop ionizers and bottled alkaline water are touted by some high-profile health enthusiasts who claim that alkaline water can have revolutionary health benefits such as:
- Colon cleansing
- Cancer resistance
- Weight loss
- Improved focus
- Anti-aging properties
If you live in Kennesaw, then there’s a good chance you’ve heard about drinking alkaline water for the health benefits.
But are the health claims valid?
How Alkaline Water Works (or Doesn’t)
Your blood needs to maintain a specific acidity in order for your blood cells to function and your body does an excellent job at balancing its own pH. Drinking more alkaline water won’t change this process.
Additionally, your stomach is acidic enough to neutralize alkaline water and it’s supposed to be that way in order to facilitate digestion. The alkaline water you drink, like any other water, becomes acidic in your stomach and is then made alkaline once again by your pancreas.
There is likely no logical way that drinking alkaline water will make any difference in your biology. More high-quality research is needed to establish the benefits of alkaline water consumption. People who claim to experience the benefits of alkaline water are most likely benefitting from the fact that they are simply drinking more water, period.
