Why Alkaline Water Benefits Your Health

If you need a good reason why you should switch to Alkaline Water, here are three main reasons to consider:

  1. Alkaline water is a powerful liquid anti-oxidant that is easily absorbed into the body and neutralizes free radicals.
  2. Alkaline water has ions (lots of them) to balance and maintain a proper body pH (6.9~7.2). This creates an environment that inhibits bacteria, in flammation and disease.
  3. Alkaline water has a smaller molecule structure. This facilitates more hydration, faster nutritional intake and better detoxification.


Alkaline Water produced by a Chanson Water Ionizer offers anti-oxidant protection which makes it anti-inflammatory


Alkaline water contains more bio-available alkaline minerals than regular water. It has the ability to help the body buffer excess acidity.

Alkaline Water Benefits Testimonials



Drinking the right kind of water could have a significant benefit for your health.  There are  over 40 studies on the benefits of alkaline water that show there are benefits that you don’t get with plain water. Alkaline water has been shown to positively affect many different parts of your body at the same time. For example: When you drink alkaline water for weight loss, you’re also detoxing. While both of those things are happening, your rate of bone loss decreases, as does your blood pressure. All this happens as beneficial probiotics flourish in your gut, which is why in clinical testing, 88% of people with mild digestive upset found gradual relief from just drinking alkaline water!

Weight lost: 12 pounds in two months

A study called The effect of daily consumption of 2 liters of electrolyzed water for 2 months on body composition and several physiological parameters in four obese subjects on obese, middle aged people showed the benefits of alkaline water for weight loss. Patients in the study lost 12 pound in two months, just by drinking alkaline water! There was no will power or diet changes involved, they just lost the weight. There’s several reasons alkaline water could spur weight loss: Better hydration may increase your metabolic rate, so you burn calories faster. Alkaline water supports beneficial probiotic microflora in the gut, and those beneficial bacteria break food down into the form needed by your body to produce energy. If you have weak probiotic microflora, then harmful anaerobes will turn your digested food into the form that your body stores as fat.

Hydration: 17% Better than regular water

Multiple studies done at Montana State University have shown that one of the benefits of alkaline water for both athletes and everyone else is that it hydrates faster and more thoroughly than plain water. The studies found that alkaline water re-hydrated athletes faster than regular water, and that it hydrated them more thoroughly than plain water. The Centers for Disease Control have found that about 3 out of 4 Americans suffer from chronic dehydration. Chronic dehydration can lead to many health problems such as constipation and migraine headaches. So chances are, getting hydrated with alkaline water will make a difference in your health that you can feel.

Liver health: Hangover help and protection from oxidative damage

Alkaline water has been shown to have the potential to help you detox from a hangover. It works by breaking down hydrogen peroxide, a harmful oxidant, into water and oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide is a metabolic byproduct of alcohol metabolism that kills liver cells. By breaking it down, alkaline water helps protect the liver. At the same time, it helps rehydrate the body, and dehydration is a major part of what causes the morning after headache that comes with a hangover

Digestive health: 88% of people with mild digestive upset found relief

Clinical trials from Japan showed that 88% of people with chronic mild digestive upset found gradual relief from their symptoms just by drinking alkaline water. There’s a couple of reasons for this, alkaline water:

  1. Neutralizes pepsin – The enzyme that triggers GERD
  2. Contains magnesium hydroxide, the active ingredient in Milk of Magnesia.
  3. Supports healthy probiotic microbes in the gut

The painful burning of gastroesophageal reflux is triggered by an enzyme called pepsin. Alkaline water permanently neutralizes pepsin, so the harmful burning sensation of GERD is never triggered. Alkaline water is actually the only known safe method for controlling GERD. Long term use of the medications commonly taken for it called proton pump inhibitors, have been linked to dementia and alzheimer’s.

Magnesium hydroxide works to counteract acidity to stop the painful burning of acid indigestion. Alkaline water acts to both counter some acidity, and dilutes acidity at the same time.

The beneficial probiotic microbes in your gut are called anaerobes, and they hate oxygen-rich environments. Alkaline water supplies antioxidant hydroxyl ions, which act to displace oxygen in the gut. This helps tilt the balance in your gut away from the harmful anaerobes, and towards the beneficial probiotic microbes. The researchers in Japan that conducted clinical trials on alkaline water observed several different changes that showed this change in gut microflora was happening, including

  • Reduced flatulence
  • Healthier stools
  • Reduced constipation

Detoxification from 10 heavy metals

Two Swedish studies showed that the pH of the water you drink can protect you from heavy metals, specifically mercury. They showed that Swedish women who drank water from wells that was alkaline absorbed calcium, magnesium, and other beneficial nutrients from the alkaline water they drank. Women who drank water from wells that had acidic water absorbed higher amounts of acidic elements like mercury and boron. The results were definitive, which lead the researchers to suggest that one of the important benefits of alkaline water is that it may protect against the harmful effects of mercury.

Clinical research in the US showed that people who were new to alkaline water discharged 10 different heavy metals in their urine after starting to drink alkaline water. The reason it works is that raising the pH level of your urine increases renal clearance of toxic metals such as fluoride and mercury.

Benefits of Alkaline water: It may protect against Alzheimer’s and dementia

Oxidative stress, which is caused by free radicals and Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) is a major contributing factor to Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Your brain cells are especially sensitive to oxidative damage, and as you age, your body’s defenses against oxidative damage decline.

Antioxidant supplements can’t protect your brain from oxidation, because they are blocked by the blood/brain barrier – a membrane that all blood entering the brain must pass through. Alkaline water isn’t blocked, so it passes right through the blood/brain barrier and into the brain where it can break down harmful oxidants before they have a chance to destroy brain cells.

Alkaline water safer than drugs for bone health

The strongest clinical proof of the benefits of alkaline water is for bone health. Multiple studies have shown that drinking alkaline water lowers enzyme markers in the blood that doctors use to measure bone loss. This bone-saving effect has been shown in both young and older people. Drinking alkaline water is quite literally one of the best things you can do for better bone health.

There are side effects to the bisphosphonate bone drugs like Boniva, which are commonly prescribed for bone health. These drugs help for a short term, less than five years. But after five years, they can have serious side effects such as jaw necrosis: Rotting away of the jaw bone. Alkaline water is the only thing that is beneficial for bone health that has no side effects.

Even milk has problems, milk acidifies your body when you drink it, which interferes with your ability to absorb calcium. This has lead some researchers to speculate that middle-aged people who drink milk for bone health may actually be doing more harm than good.

What’s wrong with milk? Middle-aged and older people’s bodies’ ability to neutralize acidity declines with age. A younger person’s body buffers the acidity in milk so they can absorb the calcium in it. An older person’s  may not be able to buffer that acidity well enough for that person to benefit from the calcium in milk. If your digestive tract is too acidic, your body doesn’t absorb calcium very well.

The calcium you need for better bone health is easier for your body to absorb from water than it is from food. According to The World Health Organization, calcium is 30% easier for your body to absorb from water than it is from food. Because of this, the WHO recommends that you get 10 – 20% of your daily needs for calcium from the water you drink. Alkaline water for a water ionizer is an excellent source of highly bioavailable calcium.

Half of a pH could save your life!

What harm could half of a pH cause? It could be a sign that you have Metabolic Syndrome: A “constellation of physiological problems happen when your body is in a constant state of low-grade metabolic acidosis. People who have metabolic syndrome are slowly dying, their organs are shutting down as they are destroyed by acidity. The five symptoms of metabolic syndrome are:

  1. High Blood Pressure
  2. Obesity
  3. Blood Sugar Problems
  4. Bone Loss
  5. Kidney Stones

The common factor in all these symptoms is low urine pH balance. The difference between having all of the symptoms of metabolic syndrome, and having none? It’s just a half of a pH!

Benefits of Alkaline Water for Cholesterol reduction

Another one of the benefits of alkaline water which has been documented in studies is cholesterol reduction. Alkaline water has been shown to be especially effective at reducing the levels of the two most harmful forms of cholesterol: Triglycerides and Very Low-Density Lipoprotein (V-LDL) cholesterol. Some health experts who have studied alkaline water’s effect on cholesterol believe that alkaline water helps by improving the body’s uptake of magnesium.  Just like calcium, your body absorbs magnesium from water 30% faster and easier than it does from food or supplements

Benefits of Alkaline water and Gatorade: Supercharged workouts

This really works! Drinking alkaline water mixed with an electrolyte drink mix such as Gatorade, will supercharge your workout. A study done on athletes who drink alkaline water mixed with Gatorade were able to work out significantly harder and longer. The study showed that It lowered the perceived effort that the athletes felt they needed to accomplish a workout. As a result, the athletes in the study simply had more energy and could go harder before hitting their max.

It works because drinking alkaline water speeds absorption of electrolytes into your system. It’s higher pH balance also boosts the muscles ability to neutralize and  flush out oxidative wastes. This means that you can go harder before your muscles start to feel that performance-robbing burn.
