Study examined people who were determined to get sufficient calcium from their diets to find out if calcium-rich alkaline water could reduce the rate of bone loss. The study compared alkaline water to acidic water to see if alkaline water worked better.

In calcium sufficiency, the alkaline water led to a significant decrease of PTH and of S- CTX (two important markers of bone loss). The acidic water did not reduce bone loss. Tap water may not be calcium rich. However, the reduction of bone loss markers was also shown in the study which used ordinary tap water treated by a water ionizer to make it alkaline water that was not calcium rich. Study examined four people who drank alkaline water made with a water ionizer for two months. The study examined two markers of bone loss: serum osteocalcin measures bone formation by osteoblasts. N-telopeptides and NTx measures bone resorption (loss) by osteoclasts. The study showed significant reductions in bone loss markers (N-telopeptides and NTx) for all four test subjects There was no significant effect on bone formation (serum osteocalcin).
A natural alkaline mineral water with a pH of 8.7 was evaluated to see if it reduced blood pressure in people with low magnesium and calcium levels. Waterborne mineral supplementation may reduce blood pressure in people with calcium and/or magnesium deficiency.
Alkaline water was shown to enhance the antioxidant activity of Ascorbic acid (vitamin C).
Most of our clients are acidic when they are tested with pH paper in their saliva and also via Biofeedback testing. When we recommend using alkaline water, they report measurable and significant health improvement in all aspect of their health.
Achieving alkaline pH of 7.34; full hydration and full oxygenation are the keys for total wellness and to live to 101+
