On top of soothing acid reflux, other claimed benefitsof alkaline water, according to statistics, are that it helps neutralize acid in the bloodstream, which leads to increased oxygen levels and improved energy and metabolism; it contains antioxidant properties (anti-aging and anti-disease); cleanses the colon;
Alkaline water is different from tap because it's less acidic—it has a pH over seven, meaning that it has a lower concentration of hydrogen ions. Time for a basic chemistry lesson: "All liquids have a measure of acidity, which is determined on the pH scale. The pH measures the concentration of hydrogen ions in the liquid, which is expressed on a scale of 0-14. Anything under seven (think black coffee, orange juice, and vinegar) is acidic, seven is neutral and above seven (like baking soda) is alkaline territory".
Alkaline water can be consumed from many sources, including special filters, faucet attachments, and additives that raise the pH. One of the most common (and convenient) ways, though, is through bottled water (such as SIP by SHE), coming soon to grocery & convenient stores.
According to a study in the Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology, alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 can help sooth acid reflux because the higher pH level kills pepsin, an enzyme involved in breaking down food proteins and a main cause of acid reflux.
On top of soothing acid reflux, other claimed benefits of alkaline water, according to statistics, are that it helps neutralize acid in the bloodstream, which leads to increased oxygen levels and improved energy and metabolism; it contains antioxidant properties (anti-aging and anti-disease); cleanses the colon; rejuvenates the skin; and lubricates muscles and joints. Sip by SHE, the new popular brand of alkaline bottled water, states that "increased dietary alkalinity reduces body fat and fatigue, protects bones, supports the immune system, and achieves better overall health."
Alkaline water is also known for its ultra-hydrating ability. In fact, Sip by SHE touts that their enhanced water is "more hydrating than the leading bottled water."
