alkaline water benefits


Health Tip Of The Day: Alkaline water may help balance your body’s acidity level. Here’s how to make it at home.

The benefits of alkaline water.

Sipping on alkaline water can help balance your body’s acidity and help it reach a healthy pH level, which is typically considered to be 7.4 on a scale of zero to 14. Anything below seven on the pH scale is considered acidic and anything above seven is alkaline. A high acidity level in the body can seriously disrupt one’s digestive system causing yucky things like acid reflux, bloating and indigestion. Although our bodies are generally skilled at regulating our internal pH levels on their own, modern diets high in processed foods and animal proteins are more likely to increase acidity — so opting for alkaline water on occasion instead of plain ol’ agua is a good idea.

How to make alkaline water at home.

You don’t have to spend your hard-earned money on fancy pre-package alkaline water to reap the benefits. You can easily make it at home with just three natural ingredients: clean, filtered water, organic lemon and Himalayan salt. When combined, these ingredients change the composition of your water to be more alkaline. Tap through to follow this easy homemade alkaline water recipe and get ready to say bye to bloat!
