Alkaline water is natural water, it gets its alkalinity from the minerals dissolved in it. Keep in mind, any water with a pH of greater than 7 is alkaline water. You probably already have alkaline water flowing straight from your tap. Most American homes have hard water; hard water gets its hardness from calcium carbonates and magnesium carbonate. These two carbonate mineral compounds make hard water alkaline.
Alkaline water from the tap vs. alkaline water from a water ionizer
Tap water get’s it’s alkalinity from mineral carbonates, but unfortunately it picks up a few other things too as it travels through the reservoirs and pipes of a municipal water system. Toxins like chlorine, lead and fluoride are added, and toxic chemicals from pollution also contaminate tap water.
Alkaline water from a water ionizer is more like mountain spring water than water from your tap. This is because mountain spring water gets its alkalinity from mineral hydrates – calcium hydrate and magnesium hydrate. Because of this, alkaline water from a water ionizer is alkaline water in its pure, most natural form.
When exposed to air, natural mountain spring water slowly loses the natural goodness that it gets from mineral hydrates. This is because of the CO2 in the air; it chemically combines with the mineral hydrates and converts them to mineral carbonates – the familiar form of tap water known as hard water. A water ionizer simply reverses the process of carbonization by splitting the minerals in water from the CO2 that combined with it.
Nutritional value of mineral hydrates
The mineral hydrates in alkaline water give it its healthy qualities, and are the reason it tastes refreshing like mountain spring water. Calcium hydrate is an excellent source of nutritional calcium; it is used as the source of calcium in infant formula and orange juice. Magnesium hydrate is also nutritious, and used to fortify foods with magnesium. Both mineral hydrates are recognized as nutrients by the FDA.
Alkaline water from a water ionizer is actually the most natural form of alkaline water because it gets its alkalinity from the same mineral hydrates as mountain spring water. Because of this, unless you can get your alkaline water directly from a mountain spring, alkaline water from a water ionizer is the best water you can get. People have been drinking mineral-hydrate rich alkaline water for centuries because it is the healthiest water on Earth.
