One of the most common reasons we see offered by those who discount the benefits of alkaline water is something like this,
“under normal circumstances your body does not need any help in maintaining pH or in neutralizing acid.”
That quote was taken from Dr. Roach, a doctor with a syndicated column in many newspapers and newsletter across the country. Kind of like the Dear Abby for health. Scroll down to the bottom of his column from the St. … Read the rest
To the alkaline water salesperson, that statement causes all sorts of reactions. Frustration, eye rolls, unbelief, etc. Typically it is countered with an answer like these.
“Too much baking soda isn’t good for you”
“there are side effects with too much baking soda, like gas and diarrhea”
“that’s not alkaline, see, my pH meter (or drops) doesn’t show pH increasing”
The first 2 are accurate, but a little misleading, the 3rd is just dumb. All illustrate a fundamental misunderstanding of … Read the rest
Equating alkaline water with an alkaline diet is probably the biggest misconception within the alkaline world. It stems from the fundamental misunderstanding of differences between pH and alkalinity. We’re told drinking alkaline water is like eating a big kale salad.
But it’s not.
Our bodies need both hydrogen (pH) AND minerals (alkalinity). Hydrogen for things like cellular fuel and antioxidant protection, but alkaline minerals to cancel out and balance acid waste buildup. We can’t expect a glass of water with … Read the rest
For anyone looking at alkaline water, the title of this post might seem a bit conflicted. We all know the most advertised and marketed aspect of alkaline water is the pH number. The first thing new distributors at Enagic or MLM brand X learn how to do is put some pH reagent drops in the water and show how purple = alkaline. From their conclusions are drawn as to how this water can change the alkaline levels in our bodies … Read the rest
What if we gauged marathoners by how well they ran a 100 meter race? Would that to be a sound predictor for how they would perform over 26 miles? How about a marriage based on the first date? Or what if a movie was given awards based on the first and last 10 minutes only? Nothing in between was viewed.
Would anyone who suggested these ideas be given any credence?
No. But somehow it works when selling water filters.

That’s not really a fair question. It’s comparing apples to oranges because we
are fundamentally different than the other water ionizers you typically run
across. Here’s just a couple
1. We don’t use any complicated parts, electronics or
expensive metals. Nothing to wear out,
break or be repaired. Just solid
construction and a simple design. Natural ingredients that perform well and an easy delivery method to create alkaline water. Quality doesn’t have to be expensive…at least
that’s what our … Read the rest
