There are no health benefits to drinking water that is slightly alkaline or acidic. The concept of your body being too alkaline or acidic is based on poor knowledge of basic homeostasis and physiology.

Other sources of vegetables that are rich in alkaline are a good substitute for a pricey alkaline water :b_peace:

alkaline water and acidic water in our body shud be balance para iwas sakit, pag alam mo puro acidic food ang kinakain mo at acidic water iniinom mo, thats the time u shud drink plenty of alkaline water to neutralize high acid level in our body.

Sa mga nagtitipid, ibabad sa tubig ang okra overnight tapos inumin the next morning. Alkaline na!

Sa mga kuripot talaga, pwede ring 1 part sosa sa 20 parts water para tipid. Alkaling nga! :yoohoo:

Basically, all drinking water should be pH neutral to slightly alkaline.

Any claims on alkaline water's special benefits are just marketing ploy to purchase their products which is NOT DIFFERENT to other drinking water available in the market.  Ignorance is costly sometimes.

instead of alkaline water... buy BRAGG's APPLE CIDER VINEGAR, put one tsp. to a glass of water... much better...

Agreed. Laging out-of-stock nga lang Bragg's.
Yung ibang brand naman pasteurized at filtered so mas-kaunti yung mga enzymes (long-chain molecules yun na madaling masira sa init). May ibang brand akong napansin na mukhang ok din, pero di ko maalala.

Anyway, try na rin yung vegetable water, lemon water, etc.

Dba the human body is more acidic than alkaline?
I believe the acidity helps to kill some germs.
So why alkaline water?

This article is very useful...

The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0-14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic, and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.

Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body. Normal drinking water is generally a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water generally has a pH of 8 or 9.

Natural or Artificial?
Water that is naturally alkaline occurs when water passes over rocks – like springs – and picks up minerals, which increase its alkaline level. There are companies that sell products, like ionizers, that claim to make water alkaline through a chemical process called electrolysis. Makers of ionizers say electricity is used to separate molecules in the water that are more acidic or more alkaline. Although some doctors and researchers say these claims are not backed quality research.

A study published by the World Health Organization cautions against drinking low-mineral content water on a regular basis.

Where Do You Get It?
Alkaline water can be bought in many grocery or health food stores. Water ionizers are sold in many large chain stores as well.

You can also make your own at home. Even though lemon and lime juice is acidic, they contain minerals that can change the composition of water. Adding a squeeze of lemon or lime to a glass of water can make your water more alkaline. Adding pH drops is another way to make water more alkaline. It’s important to use distilled water when making alkaline water because tap water or bottled water may have other additives.

Does It Really Work?
Alkaline water is a somewhat controversial topic. Many health professionals argue against its use, saying there isn’t enough research to support the many health claims made by users and sellers. According to Mayo Clinic, regular water is best for most people as there is no scientific evidence that fully verifies the claims made by alkaline water proponents.

However, there are a few studies that suggest alkaline water might be helpful for certain conditions. For example, a 2012 study found that drinking alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 can help deactivate pepsin, which is the main enzyme that causes acid reflux. Another study suggested that drinking alkaline water may have benefits for people who suffer from high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.

Is It Safe?
The issue that many health professionals have with alkaline water is not its safety, but rather the health claims that are made about it.

There is not enough scientific evidence to support the use of alkaline water as a treatment for any health condition. Medical experts warn against believing all the marketing claims.

Drinking natural alkaline water is generally considered safe, since it contains natural minerals. However, you should use caution with artificial alkaline water, which likely contains fewer minerals necessary for good health than its high pH would have you believe, and overuse may leave you deficient.

For most people, alkaline water would be a waste of money.
Mas ok siguro just drink water from a variety of sources para balance by diversity.

Huwag lang DISTILLED water unless no choice.

Some have more acid secretions in their stomach. To reduce it you take antacids like soda-mint, creamalin maalox etc. as the need arises. For severe cases, you take generic omeprazole or proton-inhibitors. For mild attacks take dompheridon  30 mins before meals. Better ask your doctor to confirm what I recommend.

Do not take vinegars, alcohol, spicy foods and then you do not need any alkaline/antacid boosters.

Do not spend your hard earned money on a scam like alkaline water machine. You have to pay thousands for the chemical cartridge lasting only a few months. From what I learn these cartridge element is just over-loaded with inexpensive antacids to turn plain tap water slightly alkaline.

very insightful. baka nga mas mura pa na magpaconsult ka nalang din sa doctor mismo and get guidance on your diet para macorrect yung acidity.

Water is beneficial for our overall health, which is why the experts recommend 8 glasses of water per day. We should take water that is neutral to slightly alkaline, but that doesn't mean that alkaline water is the best. Sometimes ignorance is a very dangerous disease because someone simply markets alkaline water and you go buying their brand thinking you'll live forever, water is water, so long as it is pure
