What is the difference between artificial and naturally alkaline water?Updated 2 years ago

Naturally alkaline water has a chemical makeup that differs significantly from artificially alkaline water. Most alkaline waters on the market use ionizers and processes such as electrolysis, or even added baking soda (sodium bicarbonate).

Why is this artificial? All water found in nature has a pH that perfectly corresponds to the alkaline minerals in the water such as calcium and magnesium. The problem with ionized or artificially alkaline water is that the body thinks it receives more alkaline minerals than what is actually present in the water.

If it is the minerals from alkaline water that the body needs, what is it possibly getting from an artificial pH? An artificial pH merely has an abundance of OH- and less H+. Can the body utilize these ions as if they were minerals? The answer is no.

From a natural standpoint, artificially alkaline waters are the GMO’s of the water world. If our goal is to be healthy, why would we drink or eat anything artificial?

Waiākea is proud to be one of the most naturally alkaline waters in the world. No artificial processes, no decreased pH over time.
