What is pH

What is pH
The pH or potential hydrogen scale measures the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution. The pH scale
measures the acidity or alkalinity of water. When you have high pH levels, the water has fewer free hydrogen
ions, and when you have low pH levels, the water has more free hydrogen ions. The pH scale ranges from 0 to
14 with 7 being neutral. If the pH of the water you drink is below 7, the water is acidic, and if the pH level is
above 7, the water is alkaline.
Let’s Talk Alkaline Water
Advocates of high alkaline water say drinking it can help your body maintain an appropriate pH balance and
prevent numerous types of diseases. Because alkaline water has a higher pH level than plain tap water does,
many practitioners say that it can neutralize acid in your bloodstream, boost your metabolism and help your
body absorb nutrients more effectively. Some even say that alkaline water can help prevent disease and slow
the aging process. Alkaline water also is said to be better at hydrating the body because it penetrates cells more
Advocates say alkaline water can improve health because when people eat an acidic diet and drink water which
is not alkaline, the body has to balance blood pH by leaching important minerals such as magnesium,
potassium, and calcium from tissues, bones, and teeth. This contributes to bone loss, tooth decay, and cellular
aging. People with systems that are acidic, as measured by saliva pH, can have many symptoms and disorders
including muscle and joint pain, fatigue, headaches, indigestion, excessive mucous and dry skin and hair. On
the other hand, proponents say high-alkaline diets prevent and treat degenerative diseases, such as arthritis,
cancer, heart disease and kidney disorders.
