Studies have shown that drinking water with high alkaline levels can help people maintain pH balance, and even cure symptoms related to high acid.

The Benefits of Alkaline Water special section was created by Conversioplanet in partnership with Dailyindepth, AlkaLife, leading doctors, health experts and other evangelists – people who have made the change to alkaline water and now swear by the stuff.
The levels of alkaline and acid in water determine pH balance. Water has a natural pH balance of 7, on a scale of 0 to 10. The higher the pH balance, the more alkaline that is present. Consuming foods like meat, dairy, sugar and some citrus, tips the scale towards the low end, and that is what causes things like heartburn, indigestion, asthma and even esophageal cancer.
“Most diseases start when our pH levels drop below a 7.0," says Merrily Milmoe, a certified massage therapist and holistic health researcher at the Healing Arts Studio in Mill Valley, Calif. “Your blood’s pH level should stay within a certain range of alkalinity to remain healthy.”
In order to avoid these negative occurrences, some experts suggest concentrating on balancing pH levels. Studies have shown that drinking water with high alkaline levels can help people maintain pH balance, and even cure symptoms related to high acid.
AlkaLife founder, Sang Whang, started drinking alkaline water in his 50s after it was recommended to him by his friend, a nurse. He immediately saw results in his physical appearance and overall health. By balancing his pH levels, he claims he was able to slow down the aging process and live a happier life.
It is also important to consider the quality of water we’re consuming. “Many of the bottled waters we drink are acidic or dead water,” says Milmoe. “By adding a few drops of alkaline, you can increase the pH level and improve your health on the go.”
