Alkaline water is becoming a popular trend, thought to bring improved health by better metabolizing nutrients and helping the body to expel toxins. However, with so much hype online, television, and in magazines, it can feel difficult to separate the facts about alkaline water from the fiction. Synergistiq Health can help by offering the details of what researchers understand about alkaline water.

The Basics of Drinking Water

Everyone is aware that water intake is a big deal. The human body is largely composed of water, so staying hydrated plays a vital role in digestion, skin health, and overall body function. Some doctors recommend eight glasses of water a day. However, as the world deals with expanding population growth, and subsequent pollution, many people begin to question the quality of our water sources. While tap water in the United States is considered safe, the bottled water market is booming.

Alkaline water, either naturally occurring or processed, is a less acidic option to tap water. The acidity of a solution is noted by the pH level. Pure water comes in with a pH of 7, with alkaline water falling between 7 – 9.5. With a higher pH level, alkaline water is full of alkalizing compounds, which may include things such as silica, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. Although tap water is filled with a variety of elements, the pH level decreases the number of alkalizing agents, taking away the health benefits.

How pH Levels Affect the Health

Many researchers theorize that the Standard American Diet (SAD) leads to chronic, low-grade acidosis.

Inflammation, chronic disease and cancer thrive in acidity. This is not surprising, considering the poor diet of many Americans, often composed of processed, fast food. Low-grade acidosis can create a variety of health and hormonal problems, including bone loss and metabolism issues. Symptoms of acidosis can manifest as diarrhea, anxiety, poor immune function, osteoporosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.

Doctors often suggest that the body needs to remain at a 7.4 pH level for optimal health. Each organ system is responsible for keeping its own, unique range of pH; and the body will work hard to keep these levels in check. Unfortunately, when the acidity in one area is out of range, this may mean pulling nutrients from the bones or blood for proper function.

Benefits of Alkaline Water

Although the benefits of alkaline water are still being studied, researchers know that pH levels are very important to physical health. While more research is needed to confirm the full value of alkaline water, the potential benefits are extensive:

One or more tests may be necessary to diagnosis a thyroid issue. To best determine the function of the thyroid gland, routine blood work will be used to check the TSH, T2, T3, and T4 levels. More detailed testing, such as a CRT scan or ultrasound, can provide a physical picture of the thyroid gland, detecting nodules or any unusual growth. A fine needle aspiration biopsy may be required to obtain additional information on an enlarged thyroid, determining if unusual growth is cancerous or benign.

The best way to determine just how valuable alkaline water can be for you will be through the help of an integrative medicine specialist. Dr. Verma has extensive experience in integrative health, and holds a deep understanding of proper organ system function.
