					Ways To Obtain Alkaline Water


Alkaline water has some notable health benefits. Most of the health benefits stems from its acid
neutralizing properties. It also has a pH level that ranges from 8.5 to 9.5. Such pH level gives water the
power to neutralize acids in the body. High acid levels in the body causes some of the common human
ailments. This high pH water is branded as the healthy drinking liquid. Alkaline water does not occur
naturally, and that is one problem. You have to produce it, but the question is how.

Using Baking Soda

Altering the ionic nature of H2O is one easy way to come up with alkaline water. With this method, you do
not need to purchase extremely expensive water ionizing machines. This homemade alkaline water is
obtained using baking soda. Use a high-grade one that does not contain too many impurities. Use
distilled water for this purpose. Tap water has some minerals that could alter the resulting solution.
Baking soda is actually sodium bicarbonate, which is a basic (alkaline) compound. When added to water,
it creates an alkaline solution.

You will need a pH meter to test the pH level of the liquid after you add the baking soda. A teaspoon may
do the trick. Pour the liquid into a clean, sterilized container, and then, add the baking soda. Stir the
solution, and then test it using the pH meter. The reading should reach around 9, but if not, add more
baking soda and re-test the water. Take note of the amount of baking soda you put, because you will be
using the same amount of baking soda for the same amount of H2O next time. Store your homemade
water in the fridge. Shake the water well before drinking.

Adding Alkaline Tablets

The baking soda method is quite simple. If you do not like to drink baking-soda-laden water, another
option would be to use alkaline tablets. Check if they are available at a heath supplement shop or in an
online health products store. Add one tablet to a glass of drinking water. If you want to make sure that you
are actually drinking high pH water, test it first before consuming it.

Portable Water Ionizers

Some people want to have a supply wherever they go. A convenient way is to have a portable ionizer that
changes even tap water into alkaline water. The portable device usually looks just like an ordinary water
jug, but actually has substances inside it that release ions necessary for raising the pH of water.

Home Water Ionizers

Alkaline water can conveniently be generated by water ionizers that can be attached directly to your
faucet. Such machines are powered by electricity, allowing you to produce such water with just one push
of a button. However, installing the machine may need the expertise of a plumber. Another disadvantage
of these machines is that they are generally really expensive. You probably would be wondering if the
benefits of alkaline water are worth the price of the machine.
