What is the pH of Waiākea?
Waiākea's pH ranges between 7.6 and 8.2, still making it one of the most naturally alkaline water brands in the world.
pH (potential hydrogen) is the measurement of the ratio of hydrogen ions (H+) to hydroxide ions (OH-) in a solution that expresses its relative acidity or alkalinity on a scale that ranges from 0-14. The higher the concentration of hydrogen ions in a solution, the lower its pH, and vice versa. A pH of 7 is neutral. Anything below 7 is acidic and anything above 7 is alkaline.💦
Naturally alkaline water has a chemical makeup that is vastly different from artificially alkaline water. Artificially alkaline water has undergone a process they call ionization or electrolysis to “trick” the water into thinking it has a certain pH, but possesses none of the minerals that are responsible for the health benefits of naturally alkaline water.
Lab-made alkaline waters might register a high pH (some touting a pH as high as 10), however, most of these waters are devoid of the minerals and electrolytes that actually make alkaline water so good for you.
