Good water and pH factors

Good water is defined as water having a pH of greater than 7.365 (the natural pH of the human body). Tests have been done on several popular brands of bottled

water and it’s shameful to see how we are wasting our money.  Most bottled water is nothing more than municipal water that has been run through a filter.

 Take the Coke product, Dasani, or the Pepsi product, Aquafina—both are bottled from municipal water supplies; nothing else has been done! Buying bottled water is no assurance

that it is any safer or healthier than tap water.

Not many bottled water companies list their pH factor, but Evian has a pH of 7.53 and Dannon Spring Water of 7.84—thus, both are “good” water.

 If in doubt about the pH of your tap water, take it in for testing. To get your water (whether bottled or tap) to an alkaline state of 7.365 or higher, just add a teaspoon or two of baking soda to

each 32 ounces of water that you drink. Baking soda added to water not only increases the pH, but also releases oxygen in the water, increasing its energy potential.  Dr. Robert O. Young, in

his book The pH Miracle for Weight Loss, recommends that you drink water that has a pH of 9.5 to 11.5.

(There are some machines available for purchase that will alkalize your water right at your kitchen sink.)  

It takes about 20 parts alkaline to cancel out 1 part acid. So, if you want to drink a cup of acidic coffee and are concerned about your body’s pH balance,

 you would have to drink 20 cups of “good” water to cancel out the acid that is created in your body from drinking the one cup of coffee.  

(It doesn’t matter if it’s caffeinated or decaf—it’s all acid causing.)
