Alkaline drinking water has well-documented health benefits for the heart that are based on studies of large populations in the U.S and Europe. The reason alkaline drinking water is good for the heart is the calcium and magnesium in it are 30% easier for the body to absorb than they are from food. It is likely that you could be mineral deficient. According to the Centers for Disease Control 4 out of 5 Americans are. There are many other health problems that mineral deficiency is a factor in as well, bone loss, blood sugar problems, weight control, even insomnia. Alkaline drinking water improves your health by supplying easily absorbed calcium and magnesium and healthy hydration.
What is alkaline drinking water?
Alkaline drinking water is any water that has an alkaline pH. That includes hard water and ionized alkaline water made by water ionizers. Ionized alkaline water has more benefits than hard water. But both are better for you than most bottled water.
Hard water actually is good for you, as long as it is clean. Many people won’t drink hard water because of taste or potential toxins in it. A water ionizer purifies hard water and makes it taste sweeter and more refreshing than plain water.

Ionized alkaline water compared to plain water
Ionized alkaline water has higher alkalinity than plain water, which means it can help neutralize acidic body imbalances. The body robs the bones of calcium to correct pH imbalances, and studies show that this bone loss is associated with hip fractures and other problems. The bones also benefit from the calcium and magnesium in ionized alkaline water.
Studies have suggested other benefits from drinking ionized alkaline water as well. Alkaline water has been shown to hydrate better than plain water. For athletes looking for peak performance, hydration is essential. Improved hydration can help the body detoxify, and helps maintain healthy blood pressure.
Tap water is better than bottled water
Research into many of the other benefits of drinking alkaline water is ongoing, but the benefits for heart health are well-documented. Ionized alkaline water from a water ionizer is best, but if you don’t have it, hard water from the tap is better than bottled water. Life Ionizers urges you to make sure the water you drink has plenty of calcium and magnesium in it. Research shows that your water should have a minimum hardness (measures the amount of calcium and magnesium in water) of 170 mg/L for good health. Most bottled waters have much lower hardness, so they don’t have enough calcium and magnesium for good health.
