Alkaline drinking water is a great way to balance your pH levels. This means naturally alkaline water, not man made alkaline water. Our bodies are often bombarded with acidic foods, environment, and other factors that create disease and illness in our bodies. There is a pH scale that can tell us what level or number a food item or beverage is at. 0 is the most acidic on the scale and 14 is completely alkaline. You don’t want to be completely acidic or alkaline. 7.4 is the happy medium. Surprisingly you would think that bottled water would be relatively neutral, but that is not the case. Many companies bottled water ranges from a startling 4 to a more balanced 7. 5.5 is when drinks or beverages starts eating away at the teeth. How could water do that? Waiakea is aware of how good or bad water affects the body and is socially conscious. Their water is a 8.2 helping balance the body back to alkaline, a state in which it is striving for.
