Ideally, most people prefer plain water than alkaline water. Aside from the fact that plain water is just everywhere and easy to obtain, it is also much more inexpensive. Many have been asking which one is better: “alkaline water or plain water?”.
Let us talk about the difference between alkaline and plain water. They only differ in pH level, a measurement of whether something is basic, acidic, or neutral. Absolutely pure water is neither basic nor acidic; it has a pH level of 7, in the middle of the pH scale.
Those with pH less than 7 are said to be acidic while those with pH greater than 7 are basic. Most of the water that people drink is close to neutral, but may be slightly basic or acidic depending on the water’s origin. Alkaline water is much more basic because it has higher pH level that ranges from 9.5 to 11.
Since alkaline water has higher pH level, some proponents claimed 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 aging process. But these statements, however, have not been verified by researchers.
Furthermore, some studies show that alkaline water may help slow bone loss, but further investigation is needed to determine if this influences overall bone mineral density and if the benefit is maintained over the long term.
A review showed these statements: “Bones store calcium for the body, and also help to regulate the acidity or alkalinity of the blood. When the blood becomes too acidic from a diet high in refined sugar, flour, or lots of dairy or meat, calcium is drawn from the bones to bring the blood’s pH back into the normal range.
If the blood stays alkaline from a diet rich in fruits and vegetables (or from alkaline water, as the filter manufactures claim), the bones don’t need to cede their calcium to the blood, the theory being that this calcium retention makes bones stronger and more dense. In addition to drinking alkaline water, researchers have found that eating a low-acid diet, that is, a diet full of fruits and vegetables and lower in animal protein and grains than the typical American diet, may lead to stronger bones.”
Therefore, it is up to the individual whether they choose the plain water or the alkaline water. If an individual would like to keep the pH level of blood in check, and could not afford alkaline water, try to increase the intake of fruits and green vegetables and shave down the intake of refined sugars, flours, dairy, and meat.
