What is Alkaline Water? (Quick Video)

Written by

Hi guys, Tom from Curo Lifestyle here. If you’re not familiar with us, we’re a supplier of natural alkaline water to health food stores throughout Sydney and Melbourne. You can also find us at IGAs, gyms as well but we’re constantly expanding our reach so keep an eye out for us. This video is to share some health information in bite sized chunks so you can hopefully benefit from it because it is quite confusing when it comes to health. There’s a lot of conflicting information out there on the Internet and it’s difficult to know who to trust.

So I wanted to start off with the question “What is alkaline water?” If you recall back to high school chemistry (if you took it), you’ll remember a term acid and base or alkaline which is the same thing. And these terms are used to describe where a substance sits on a pH scale which ranges from 0 to 14, where 7 is neutral. Any pH value under 7 is considered acid, anything over 7 is considered alkaline. Hence alkaline water is any water with a pH value over 7.

Bear in mind there are a couple waters out there in the market that have a pH value of around 7.2, 7.4. These are really considered neutral or weak alkaline waters because they’re closer to that neutral mark. But when you get to a water that has a pH of 8, that’s considered alkaline because when you’re actually moving one point on the pH scale, you’re actually moving ten fold, it’s not linear. So it is quite a difference. Also, there are waters that have a pH of 9, 10. These can get very high and are very alkalising so with anything, it’s important to get that balance right. And so, nothing too high is good, nothing too low is good either.

That’s it for now. I’m going to be sharing more information about the health benefits of alkaline water but that’s it for now hopefully we’ll see you soon. Bye.
