Drinking alkaline water may be the best thing you can do for your heart. The largest studies on drinking water for health have shown that the mineral content of alkaline water protects the heart and arteries. According to published research that was reviewed in: Hard Water and the Heart: the story revisited: “the more alkaline the water, the greater the protective effect on human arteries.
Minerals in Alkaline Water reduce the risk of Heart Attack and Stroke
A report by the Oak Ridge National Laboratories found that hard water, which is naturally alkaline water, reduces the risks of heart attack and stroke. The report compared the well water of 505 farmers in Wisconsin, aged 35 to 80, who had died of heart attack or stroke, to the well water of 854 living farmers. The study found that the living farmers with hard water (which IS alkaline water!) showed no evidence of heart disease at all!
Hard water is alkaline water because of the minerals in it. Studies show that alkaline water shows a protective effect on arteries when calcium levels are 94 mg/L or higher, and magnesium levels are at least 4 – 11 mg/L or higher.

The Problem with Hard Water
The fact that alkaline water is better for your health has been firmly established for decades. What is astonishing is that most people in the US and Europe have alkaline water flowing straight from the tap but they won’t drink it. People give two reasons why they won’t drink tap water:
- Concern about toxins
- Hard water tastes bad
Many people turn to bottled water to avoid their tap water, and it may be wrecking their health. Most bottled waters have very low mineral content. Hard water, which is alkaline water, is better for your health. Thankfully, there is a way to fix the problems with hard water.
Alkaline water ionizers make heart healthy water
Water ionizers fix both problems with tap water. The water is filtered, to purify it of toxins, and then it is treated with electrodialysis, which eliminates the bad taste. Alkaline water from a water ionizer is sweeter and more refreshing than ordinary water.
The superior taste and purity of alkaline water made by a water ionizer makes it the best choice for heart health. There are two main benefits of alkaline water for heart health:
- Hydration – Maintains proper blood viscosity and body temperature
- Mineral nutrition – Supplies essential calcium and magnesium
Alkaline water from a water ionizer makes it easy for you to stay hydrated, and get the essential minerals you need from water. A water ionizer turns your bitter-tasting hard water into the best tasting glass of water you ever drank, and you get the benefit of the healthy minerals in your water!
