TOP 5 BENEFITS OF DRINKING ALKALINE WATER: THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE HYPE

Today’s growing number of health buffs and fitness enthusiasts are spoiled for choices when it comes to shopping for healthy lifestyle products. One of the more recent products that are making waves in the health and nutrition scene is alkaline water. In this blog, let’s dive into the (2) Top 5 Benefits of Drinking Alkaline Water, and if there’s enough science to back up all the hype.

Alkaline Water vs. Regular Water

Water in its most natural state has a pH level of 7. This means that it’s neither too acidic (low pH) nor alkaline (high pH). However, in the United Arab Emirates, limited natural water resources means turning to alternatives. With desalinated seawater and groundwater as the country’s two primary sources of water, your ‘regular water’, in turn, has pH levels between 5 and 6, well below the pH scale and are therefore acidic.

Alkaline water, on the other hand, has pH levels as high as 8 or 9. This leads its health-conscious advocates to believe that alkaline water can restore the natural balance and neutralize the acids in the body. But are (1) alkaline water’s benefits really to believed? Let’s find out!

It Increases Energy

The Science Behind the Hype:

In 2017, the Biology of Sport conducted a study which found that drinking alkaline water after aerobic exercise resulted in a positive effect on urine pH, more efficient lactate utilization and increased body energy. The findings indicated regular consumption of alkaline water can be beneficial for active and healthy adults.

The Takeaway:

Unlike regular water, alkaline water has smaller water molecules for faster absorption, rehydration and replenishment. It also contains calcium for healthier bones, heart, muscles and nerve functions.

It Strengthens Immunity

The Science Behind the Hype:

In a Newsmax Health Review, co-author Robert O. Young claimed that too much acid in the body caused by an unhealthy lifestyle of poor diet, lack of exercise and other environmental factors can result in loss of energy, fatigue and drowsiness. This, in turn, weakens your body’s natural defences, significantly increasing your risk of developing diseases.

The Takeaway:

Alkaline water’s high pH level is believed to neutralize the body’s own acid level, restoring its natural balance and preventing short-term and long-term health-related issues. It also contains magnesium, an essential mineral responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body.

It Improves Metabolism

The Science Behind the Hype:

The Annals of Otology, Rhinology and Laryngology published a study which found that alkaline water with a minimum pH level of 8.8 may help prevent acid reflux. Acid reflux occurs when the stomach’s contents splash back up to the food pipe. Left untreated, acid reflux may further develop into Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD).

The Takeaway:

Alkaline water contains both magnesium and potassium. Magnesium helps convert food to energy, and potassium promotes healthy digestion. With all this in mind, alkaline water’s health benefits may even extend to supporting a healthy weight loss.

It Manages Chronic Diseases

The Science Behind the Hype:

A 2016 study in Shanghai found that patients with diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol showed significant improvement in their conditions after consuming alkaline water over a period of 3-6 months.

The findings are supported by another study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition which measured post-workout blood viscosity. Simply put, blood viscosity refers to the thickness or stickiness of a person’s blood; the lower the blood viscosity, the better the hydration levels. Participants who consumed alkaline water after strenuous workouts had an average blood viscosity of 3.36%, more than half lower than participants who consumed regular water only and had an average blood viscosity of 6.30%.

The Takeaway:

Alkaline water contains sodium which helps regulate blood pressure, a key factor in its ability to help manage chronic conditions. They say prevention is better than cure, but it turns out that alkaline water not only helps prevent diseases but also contains unique curatives properties.

It Slows Down Aging

The Science Behind the Hype:

In 2016, a study found that 150 mice who consumed alkaline water for a period of 3 years aged less and lived longer.

The Takeaway:

Alkaline water contains liquid antioxidants which can prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals, unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental and other pressures.

Is Alkaline Water Good for You?

More energy, stronger immunity, better digestion, improved chronic disease management, reduced premature aging and so many other (8) benefits of drinking alkaline water – what’s not to love about alkaline water?

(1) Natural Alkaline Water vs. (1) Ionized Alkaline Water

(2) Natural alkaline water, as its name suggests, is sourced from nature, passing over rocks and picking up naturally-occurring minerals along the way. For centuries, the miraculous waters of Zamzam, Lourdes and Tibet have been revered for their healing properties. What do all of them have in common? They are all sources of (3) natural alkaline water, of course!

For Dubai and UAE residents who do not have easy and ready access to (4) natural alkaline water, there is always artificial alkaline water, also known as (2) ionized alkaline water.

Thanks to the city’s growing number of health buffs and fitness enthusiasts and increasing demand for healthy lifestyle products, there are now many (1) alkaline water brands offering (1) alkaline bottled water in just about every corner store across all 7 emirates. But not all (3) ionized alkaline water are created equal. That is, not all (4) ionized alkaline water have the same pH level (which should ideally be between 8 and 9) and the same mineral content (which should ideally contain calcium, magnesium, sodium and potassium). Now imagine if you could create your own (1) alkaline water at home. No more shopping around for (2) alkaline water brands and reading confusing labels, and no more plastic waste from (2) alkaline bottled water. Just turn on the tap and enjoy the (1) best alkaline water with SachiSa Aqua Alkaline (RO+Alkaline) Water Purifier, the (1) best alkaline water purifier in the UAE!
