The difference between alkaline water and regular water

When you’re thirsty, do you reach for a tall glass of water, a bottle of water, or something else? Today, the variety of water options is almost endless. You can choose from a thirst-quenching array of beverages, from mineral and glacier water to distilled and purified water. The dizzying array of water brands and variations can be confusing, but there’s one water that offers just a little bit more than the rest: alkaline water.

More people are turning to water that is alkaline for some or all of their daily hydration requirements. This special mineral water has been shown to improve hydration, boost bone health, and even calm digestive distress. Increasing your intake of any water is good for you, but the right alkaline filter could make the difference between getting hydrated and getting healthy.

What makes this water so different?

1. Back to Basics: Purity and Clarity

Although tap water is subject to strict hygiene procedures to ensure its safety, it can become contaminated at any stage after the purification process. Harmful pathogens can enter the water supply and sicken people and pets. Other contaminants, such as pesticides, herbicides, metals, and chemicals, can leach into the water as it travels to your home.

All of these can pose serious risks to your health, but an alkaline filtering system uses the highest level of filtration to provide you with a steady stream of safe, clean drinking water free of impurities.

2. Never Neutral: Higher pH Levels

Drinking water normally has a neutral pH of around 7. It is neither basic nor acidic. Water that has been treated with an alkaline filter has a pH between 8 and 9.5. The basic pH helps balance the acidic environment in the stomach, which can, in turn, reduce the incidence of heartburn and acid reflux.
A higher pH level also inhibits corrosion and oxidation, which means that water that has been filtered through an alkaline system has antioxidant properties.

3. So Thirsty: Better Hydration

Your body needs a constant supply of water to perform many critical functions. Even a little dehydration can lead to unwanted symptoms, such as fatigue and lack of focus. Unfortunately, because thirst can masquerade as hunger and many people ignore thirst cues, a lot of us are walking around just a little bit dehydrated. Up to 30 percent of older adults are chronically dehydrated!

Our alkaline systems can supercharge your water into a super-hydrating thirst quencher. This is due to the higher “potential of hydrogen” of the water, which allows your body to rehydrate faster and more effectively. Some alkaline systems even infuse water with electrolytes and minerals, which makes them even more potent thirst-busters that restore not only healthy fluid levels but maintain a healthy balance throughout the whole body.

Mineral-rich water sources can produce naturally alkaline water, but most commonly, we need to use an alkaline filtering system to enjoy all the benefits of high-pH water. We offer a wide selection of systems that combine high-quality filtration and purification with alkalinity. From countertop filters to whole-house filtration, each of our units incorporates the latest in water technology and features sleek, elegant exteriors designed to blend seamlessly into any design scheme.

With maximum filtration efficiency and water with a pH between 8.5 and 9.5, our water can help you absorb more of the minerals you need for good health. Visit us today to learn more about our residential and commercial water systems or to discover for yourself how alkaline water is better.
