This article will discuss how to make alkaline drinking water. Alkaline water has been known to be useful water for our body as it can balance the pH of our digestive system. Our body tends to be acidic with pH around 4. This is because of the nature of the inner system and also because of our food. Foods like processed food or alcoholic drinks may store acid deposit into the body, thus causing acidic condition inside us.
The first principle to make alkaline drinking water is of course the source of water. Since you want to make the water drinkable, you have to use tap water, or other water source that has been certified to be safe for consumption. This water is usually not alkaline water, just neutral water with pH around 7. To make the water alkaline, add something that will increase the pH, like baking soda.
Baking soda can be used to increase the pH, just add around half teaspoon of it into a gallon of normal drinking water. Shake it and make sure the water is mixed completely. Now buy a pH test which you could normally find on chemical store, immerse the strip into the water and check whether it has already be alkaline. If it is not as you want it to be, just add more baking soda. Test it again. If you find it suitable with what you need, then no need to add more baking soda. Write down how many teaspoon of baking you have added, so next time you do not have to do such trial and error again.
Although you now know how to make alkaline drinking water, I would still suggest you do more than that. It is true that the alkaline water will make your body healthier, but if you can afford to make alkaline ionized water, then it would be much superior than ordinary alkaline water. Alkaline ionized water not only will balance the pH of your body, but it will also remove any toxic complexes inside our body system. It also acts as our anti-aging soldiers. The benefits of alkaline ionized water are far best compare with normal alkaline water. To make the ionized water, you will need a water ionizer. No need for fancy and expensive water ionizer machine as long as the important features are available, you can get a quite inexpensive water ionizer.
You have learned how to make alkaline drinking water. However, I strongly recommend that you move forward to produce your own alkaline ionized drinking water at your home.
