The first question is why even make alkaline water? First of all, alkaline water has antioxidant properties which counteract free radicals. Alkaline water cleanses the organs, particularly the colon. It also rejuvenates and detoxes the skin, breaks down the fatty elements in food, and lubricates the joints. Plus, it is very easy to do and costs pennies!
You will need a jar with a tight fitting lid and some PH test strips or tape to test your water. Fill your jar with tap water, filtered water or distilled water, leave enough room at the top of the jar for shaking. Add in ½ tsp baking soda, secure lid and shake. Now test your water, you are looking for a 8.5 to 9.0 pH level. If need be, add a bit more baking soda until you reach the correct level. Keep track of how much baking soda you use so you know how much to use when making additional alkaline water. Always give the jar a good shake each time before drinking.
Alternately you can purchase alkaline drops to use in your water as well.
This is an easy healthy thing to accomplish! Drink to your health!
