In nature, water flows down mountain streams and picks up alkaline minerals from the porous rock through which it runs, affecting its pH and making it naturally alkaline. Nothing more is done to the water to make it “alkaline”.
WHAT IS ALKALINE WATER ?
When measuring alkalinity, an alkaline pH can be the result of natural or unnatural conditions in the water. Depending on the conditions that make the water alkaline, the healthful properties of it come into question. Alkaline water is a type of water with a high pH. A water’s pH measures its level of acidity; a low pH indicates higher acidity, while a higher pH (above 7) indicates alkalinity. Too many hydrogen ions result in less oxygen, thus acidic, whereas less hydrogen ions result in more oxygen ions, thus alkaline.
NATURALLY ALKALINE VS. ARTIFICIALLY ALKALINE WATER.
Companies have created machines that makes the water artificially alkaline through ionization or electrolysis process to “trick “ the water into thinking it has certain pH, but possesses none of the natural minerals responsible for healthful benefits of naturally alkaline water. Alkaline water machines replace the good minerals with small amounts of platinum and titanium,found in the plates, as tap water is run over in the ionization process, these metals are toxic. However, you should use caution with artificial alkaline water, which likely contains fewer good minerals than its high pH would have you believe, and may contain contaminants.
miQua® Naturally alkaline water has a chemical makeup and electrolytes from the goodness of volcanic mineral rocks filtration that is vastly different from artificially ionised alkaline water. miQua® Naturally alkaline water is a healthy way to hydrate. Because of its natural mineral content, it replenishes the electrolytes and minerals your cells need. Research shows that alkaline water is faster and more effective at hydrating than standard drinking waters. The bioavailability of Calcium from mineral water is good and can be compared with the values derived from milk.
While tap water has a pH of 7 or below generally speaking, miQua® has a balanced and safe pH between 7.6-8.2.
