As your body loses water throughout the day, whether it be through your daily workout, hectic day at the office or just working around the house, you need to offer your body something amazing to help replenish the lost water. With the natural balance of our body disturbed through increase in acidic content in our diets, more and more we see a need for an option to provide a better means of hydration. That’s where alkaline water comes in.

Alkaline water is a substance that has an alkaline pH and aids in preventing excess acidity from developing in the body’s tissues. Alkaline water is infused with electrolytes that focus on maintaining the pH level and refurbish the chemical balance of the body. This healthy form of hydration, neutralizes the levels of acidity in the body, and is exactly what the body needs for a healthier future. Utilizing alkaline water as a means to remain actively hydrated improves a person’s mental as well as physical performance.

This mineral infused water is full of minerals such as magnesium, potassium and calcium, silica and bicarbonate. These help our body metabolize nutrients and aids it in expelling toxins more effectively than regular water, as such leading to better health and performance.

The “alkaline” in alkaline water talks about the pH level of the substance. The pH level is used to determine and measure how alkaline or acidic a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. As such, a substance with a pH level of 1 would be considered to be extremely acidic in nature while a substance with a pH level of 13 would be considered to be extremely alkaline in nature.
