Our bodies maintain a pH equilibrium, which is essential for carrying out a variety of bodily functions. The neutral point on a pH scale, which ranges from 1 to 14, is 7, whereas everything above it is considered alkaline or, more generally, basic in nature, and anything below it is considered acidic. Confused? Don't let the scientific terminology fool you into thinking that these are complicated phenomena. They are fairly simple to comprehend and crucial to the human body. Watch to see how. For those who are unaware, pH is also referred to as the power of hydrogen, which simply refers to determining the concentration of hydrogen ions in your body. Although both bases and acids should be present in a healthy human body, the ratio that is often maintained is 51:49, maintaining the alkaline nature slightly greater than the acids. A typical body's pH is thought to be in the range between 7.3 and 7.45.

What is alkaline water?

Acid is essential, especially in the stomach where it helps to digest and break down food. But some foods are also naturally acidic, and eating too much of them can raise the stomach's acidity and cause a number of issues. Alkaline water has a pH level higher than regular drinking water and is intended to give the body a more basic nature. Calcium, magnesium, sodium, and potassium make up this water. Alkaline water is claimed to aid in preserving the pH equilibrium in the stomach.

Here are some benefits of alkaline water-

1. Antioxidants are substances that prevent the formation of free radicals caused by smoke, pollution, and other harmful substances. This water is a good source of antioxidants.

3. Alkaline water is helpful to give the body's pH level a rapid boost to balance the acidic content.

4. Alkaline water is readily absorbed, increasing our water intake and keeping us hydrated. Additionally, ionised minerals found in alkaline water are essential to our bodies, particularly for healthy blood circulation.
