Alkaline Water: Benefits and Risks

 

What is alkaline water?

You may have heard some of the various health  claims about alkaline water. Some say it can help slow the aging  process, regulate your body’s pH level, and prevent chronic diseases  like cancer. But what exactly is alkaline water, and why all the hype?

The  “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level is a  number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of  0 to 14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic,  and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.

Alkaline  water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of  this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the  acid in your body. Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of  7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9.


 

Does it really work?

Alkaline water is somewhat controversial.  Many health professionals argue against its use, saying there isn’t  enough research to support the many health claims made by users and  sellers. According to the Mayo Clinic,  regular water is best for most people, as there is no scientific  evidence that fully verifies the claims made by supporters of alkaline  water. However, there are a few studies that suggest alkaline water might be helpful for certain conditions. For example, a 2012 study found that drinking alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, which is the main enzyme that causes acid reflux. Another study  suggested that drinking alkaline water may have benefits for people who  have high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol. A more recent study  that included 100 people found a significant difference in whole blood  viscosity after consuming high pH water compared to regular water after a  strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how blood  flows through the vessels. Those who consumed high pH water reduced  viscosity by 6.3 percent compared to 3.36 percent with standard purified  drinking water. This means blood flowed more efficiently with alkaline  water. This can increase oxygen delivery throughout out the body.

However,  more research is needed beyond these small studies, specifically into  some of the other claims made by alkaline water supporters. Despite  the lack of proven scientific research, proponents of drinking alkaline  water still believe in its many proposed health benefits, which  include:

  • anti-aging properties (via liquid antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body)
  • colon-cleansing properties
  • immune system support
  • hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties
  • weight loss
  • cancer resistance

Possible side effects and risks of alkaline water

Although alkaline drinking water is considered safe, it may produce negative side effects.

Some  examples of negative side effects include the lowering of natural  stomach acidity, which helps kill bacteria and expel other undesirable  pathogens from entering your bloodstream.

Additionally, an  overall excess of alkalinity in the body may cause gastrointestinal  issues and skin irritations. Too much alkalinity may also agitate the  body’s normal pH, leading to metabolic alkalosis, a condition that may produce the following symptoms:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • hand tremors
  • muscle twitching
  • tingling in the extremities or face
  • confusion

Alkalosis  can also cause a decrease in free calcium in the body, which can affect  bone health. However, the most common cause of hypocalcemia is not from  drinking alkaline water, but from having an under active parathyroid  gland.  

Natural or artificial?

Water that is naturally alkaline occurs  when water passes over rocks — like springs — and picks up minerals,  which increase its alkaline level.

However, many people who drink  alkaline water buy alkaline water that’s been through a chemical  process called electrolysis, which uses a product called an ionizer to  raise the pH of regular water. Makers of ionizers say that electricity  is used to separate molecules in the water that are more acidic or more  alkaline, and that the acidic water is then funneled out. Still, some  doctors and researchers say these claims are not backed by quality  research.

A study published by the World Health Organization cautions against drinking water with low mineral content on a regular basis.
