Experts from the prestigious Mayo Clinic to the Japanese Ministry of Health have weighed in on this question, and the answer is – for some people – yes. According to Mayo clinic nutritionist Katherine Zeratsky: alkaline water may help slow bone loss, but researchers haven’t verified other health claims. Plain water does not help slow bone loss.
According to the Japanese Ministry of Health, alkaline water is clinically proven to help relieve digestive upset, and may have other benefits as well. In Japan, it is prescribed for mild digestive upset. Plain water has no effect on digestive upset.
Studies Point to Wide Range of Alkaline Water Benefits
Research on alkaline water suggests it has many health benefits, but much of this research is preliminary. Some of the benefits that have been demonstrated by preliminary research include:
- Better Hydration
- Age fighting Antioxidant
- Lowers Blood Pressure
- Lower Cholesterol
- Weight Loss
Preliminary research means that alkaline water has shown promise – compared to plain water – in improving health conditions. Based on those preliminary results, many people have tried alkaline water and experienced the benefits to their own health. Research to confirm the health benefit of anything is expensive – clinical trials cost over a billion dollars! Even though alkaline water shows a lot of promise for improving health, there is no way to get the necessary clinical trials financed.
But is alkaline water better than plain water?
Alkaline water has a long history of improving health. People have been drinking it for centuries from protected mountain springs like Nordeneau in Germany and Carlsbad Mineral Springs in the USA. Most people recognize that mineral water is good for your health, and in fact, alkaline water is mineral water!
Plain water does not have the same impact. Research comparing alkaline water to plain water has shown there is a meaningful difference between the two. Alkaline water is better than plain water for health. Water ionizers make alkaline water even better with enhanced antioxidant properties.
