The “alkaline” in alkaline water refers to its pH level. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0 to 14. For example, something with a pH of 1 would be very acidic and something with a pH of 13 would be very alkaline.

Alkaline water has a higher pH level than regular drinking water. Because of this, some advocates of alkaline water believe it can neutralize the acid in your body.

Normal drinking water generally has a neutral pH of 7. Alkaline water typically has a pH of 8 or 9. However, pH alone isn’t enough to impart substantial alkalinity to water.

Alkaline water must also contain alkaline minerals and negative oxidation reduction potential (ORP). ORP is the ability of water to act as a pro- or antioxidant. The more negative the ORP value, the more antioxidizing it is.

Does it really work?

Alkaline water is somewhat controversial. Many health professionals say there isn’t enough research to support the many health claims made by users and sellers. Differences in research findings may be related to the types of alkaline water studies.

According to the Mayo Clinic, regular water is best for most people. They state that there is no scientific evidence that fully verifies the claims made by supporters of alkaline water.

However, there are a few studies that suggest alkaline water might be helpful for certain conditions.

For example, a 2012 study Trusted Source found that drinking naturally carbonated artesian-well alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 may help deactivate pepsin, the main enzyme that causes acid reflux.

Another study suggested that drinking alkaline ionized water may have benefits for people with high blood pressurediabetes, and high cholesterol.

more recent study that included 100 people found a significant difference in whole blood viscosity after consuming high-pH water compared to regular water after a strenuous workout. Viscosity is the direct measurement of how efficiently blood flows through the vessels.

Those who consumed high-pH water reduced viscosity by 6.3 percent compared to 3.36 percent with standard purified drinking water. This means blood flowed more efficiently with alkaline water. This can increase oxygen delivery throughout out the body.

However, more research is needed beyond these small studies. In particular, research is needed to answer other claims made by alkaline water supporters.

Despite the lack of proven scientific research, proponents of alkaline water still believe in its proposed health benefits. These include:

  • anti-aging properties (via liquid antioxidants that absorb more quickly into the human body)
  • colon-cleansing properties
  • immune system support
  • hydration, skin health, and other detoxifying properties
  • weight loss
  • cancer resistance

They also argue that soft drinks, which are notoriously acidic, have very positive ORPs leading to many health problems, while properly ionized and alkalinized waters have highly negative ORPs. Green tea is rich in antioxidants and has a slightly negative ORP.

Possible side effects and risks of alkaline water

Although alkaline drinking water is considered safe, it may produce negative side effects.

Some examples of negative side effects include the lowering of natural stomach acidity, which helps kill bacteria and expel other undesirable pathogens from entering your bloodstream.

Additionally, an overall excess of alkalinity in the body may cause gastrointestinal issues and skin irritations. Too much alkalinity may also agitate the body’s normal pH, leading to metabolic alkalosis, a condition that may produce the following symptoms:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • hand tremors
  • muscle twitching
  • tingling in the extremities or face
  • confusion

Alkalosis can also cause a decrease in free calcium in the body, which can affect bone health. However, the most common cause of hypocalcemia isn’t from drinking alkaline water, but from having an underactive parathyroid gland.

Natural or artificial?

Water that’s naturally alkaline occurs when water passes over rocks — like springs — and picks up minerals, which increase its alkaline level.

However, many people who drink alkaline water buy alkaline water that’s been through a chemical process called electrolysis.

This technique uses a product called an ionizer to raise the pH of regular water. Makers of ionizers say that electricity is used to separate molecules in the water that are more acidic or more alkaline. The acidic water is then funneled out.

Still, some doctors and researchers say these claims aren’t backed by quality research. The water quality of the original source, before ionization, is crucial to ensuring contaminants aren’t present in the drinking water.

Some scientists advise using reverse-osmosis to adequately purify water before connecting an alkaline ionizer, which can raise pH and add minerals.

A study published by the World Health Organization Trusted Source cautions against drinking water with low mineral content, which is created by reverse osmosis, distillation, and other methods (without additional mineralization) on a regular basis.

Where do you get it?

Alkaline water can be bought in many grocery or health food stores. It can also be found online.

Water ionizers are sold in many large chain stores as well.

You can also make your own at home. Even though lemon and lime juices are acidic, they contain minerals that can create alkaline byproducts once digested and metabolized. Adding a squeeze of lemon or lime to a glass of water can make your water more alkaline as your body digests it. Adding pH drops or baking soda is another way to make water more alkaline.

If water is properly filtered to remove contaminants, ionized and re-mineralized, or purchased from a quality source, there’s no evidence to suggest a limitation on how much alkaline water can be consumed daily.

Is it safe?

The issue that many health professionals have with alkaline water isn’t its safety, but rather the health claims that are made about it.

There isn’t enough scientific evidence to support the use of alkaline water as a treatment for any health condition. Medical experts warn against believing all the marketing claims.

Drinking natural alkaline water is generally considered safe, since it contains natural minerals.

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. Also keep in mind, drinking too much alkaline water may leave you deficient in minerals.

A heartbroken mother soldiers on, After losing 2 children. Is the timely encouragement for all mothers who after much trials and sufferings not to give up for their children but be sensitive enough for their needs according to this grieving mother..

“Losing a child is next to death.” Six months before what was supposed to be baby Alonzo’s second birthday, Baby Alonzo had just been playing a few hours before his death on Jan. 14.

A few hours later, his lips had suddenly turned purplish while sleeping after being breastfed, said Panganiban who had just finished cooking when she checked up on him. It was just the two of them at home when the incident happened as her husband was at work, she added.

“I tapped his cheeks and shouting for him to wake up but when I held his hand, it’s already cold. I did mouth-to-mouth resuscitation but I can no longer hear his heartbeat,” she said.

Baby Alonzo was rushed to the nearest hospital, Panganiban said.

Doctors had tried to revive him but he was declared dead by 2 p.m.

Panganiban said her second child died of aspiration and sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), according to doctors.

Her first child, daughter Lauraine Amarah, was born premature in 2017 and died when she was 14 days old, according to Panganiban.

“I just kept on crying and continued shouting his name and thinking that he still might wake up. I was there the whole morning and the moment I went out the room just to cook, the next thing I know is he was gone when I came back. Everything happened so fast without a warning,” she told.

Baby Louis Alonzo would have celebrated his second birthday on June 27, his mother said.

“Children may aspirate when food or liquid enters their lungs, according to the Boston Children’s Hospital. It occurs when children are put on their backs and left unattended,” said Dr. Cynthia Cuayo-Juico, pediatrician and fellow at the Philippine Pediatric Society.

“SIDS as the cause of a child’s death is rare in the Philippines,” she added.

“Yung SIDS usually yan nangyayari sa mga batang maliliit o kaya mga premature na hindi nababantayang maigi. Kaya we try to avoid putting the child less than 1 year old na nakadapa. Hindi dapat pinapahiga kasi kung minsan pag less than 6 months di nila mataas ang ulo nila. Especially kung galing lang silang dumede,” she told.

“Today I had the strength to wash the last bottle he used. The last bottle I made for him but bearly touched because until his last moments, he chose to breastfed and lay down on my chest. I am thankful and blessed to be able to breastfed him for 19 months and because of that, we really had that indescribable connection.” She said

“It’s been almost a month now, but there were times that my body still feels him as if he’s feeding on me. I miss him. I miss him so much. And something like this is a big step for me. And I thank God for every morning, for waking me up, that even my heart is totally crushed, He’s waking me up and giving me strength to get up and breath”
she also added

(SIDS usually occurs when small children or premature babies are left unattended. This is why we try to avoid putting a child less than a year old on their back, because they can’t put their head up, especially if they had just been fed.)

The pediatrician also advised parents against feeding their babies with gelatin.

“Hindi nila nakakagat. Pagka nilunok nila minsan, hindi sa stomach napupunta, sa lungs,” she said.

(They can’t chew it. When they swallow, it sometimes goes to their lungs, not their stomach.)

Pangilinan said she hopes her son’s fate would help raise awareness among parents.

“I am torn and shattered but I am breathing. I have to live the life my son left me. I have to try with every strength left with me to share my pain with others so that on a positive note, will inspire them,” she said.

“I know that I am not alone in these dark times. To all the mothers who grieved and who are still grieving, I am with you. I am crying with you…We may lose our children in different circumstances but I know that the pain we are feeling right now cannot be put into proper amount of words. I hope and pray that wherever you are, you have a strong tribe of support who will help you each day.”

Panganiban advised parents to “always keep an eye” on their children. “Always put them first. Always appreciate and be thankful for each day with your children. Motherhood is tiring, yes. But please do not get tired for one second of being a mother. Because no one knows, in just a snap, they will be gone,” she said.

“Hug your children tighter today. Everyday. Love them as if there’s no tomorrow.”

CTTO Gelo Pegares FB Post / Photo from Google

Nagka chronic kidney disease sa murang edad? Alamin at pag aralan ang mga dahilan! Nais ibahagi ng ating bida ang kanyang karanasan upang magsilbing aral sa mga maaari pang makaiwas at hindi matulad sa kanyang dinanas!

Nasa huli ang pagsisisi, ang mga katagang ito ay matandang kasabihan na madalas sabihin lalo na kung may nangyari na hindi maganda dahil sa mga naunang ginawa ng isang tao o bunga ng mga naunang maling desisyon.

Isa na rito ang netizen na si Gelo Pegares na malaki ang pagsisisi dahil sa kanyang pag-abuso sa sariling katawan na humantong sa malubhang sakit.

Sa isang Facebook post, binahagi ni Gelo ang kanyang kwento at kung paano siya nagkaroon ng Chronic Kidney Disease na nasa stage 5 na pala sa edad na 20.

Ayon sa kanya, high school pa lang nang siya ay nagsimulang mag yosi, isang kaha ay kanyang nauubos sa loob lang ng dalawang araw.

Maliban dito, mahilig din daw siyang magpuyat, at malakas din siyang uminom ng softdrinks. Madalas din daw siyang kumain ng mga maalat na pagkain.

Sa umpisa ay nakaranas siyang maging anemic, naging highblood at nakaramdam ng iba pang sintomas tulad ng pagka hilo, pagsusuka, pagsakit ng katawan at pati pamumulikat ng paa.

Ayon pa kay Gelo, wala umanong matinding sintomas ang stage 1 hangang 4, diretso na daw ito ng stage 5 kaya talagang nakakatakot.

Gayunpaman, malaki ang kanyang pasasalamat na kahit maraming tubo ang nakalagay sa kanyang katawan ay buhay pa siya. 

Nagbigay rin ng payo si Gelo sa mga netizens na sana huwag abusuhin ang katawan at alagaan ang kidney.

Narito ang buong post ni Gelo mula sa Trending Viral:

At dahil Hindi ako makatulog tara magkwentuhan tayo.

Ako si Gelo ahmm ganito kasi yan nagsimula yung sakit kong CHRONIC KIDNEY DISEASE STAGE 5(CKD) ng puro ganito.

HS nagstart ako magyosi isang kaha sa dlwang araw. Mahina ako uminom ng alak. Pero softdrinks malakas ako. Mahilig din ako magpuyat kasabay pa ng pagiinom. Mahilig din ako kumain ng maalat ee sympre pinoy ee. Hanggang sa nag ka anemic nko at nag ka highblood nagsimula sa paghihilo pagsusuka pagsakit ng katawan at pamumulikat. Walang sintomas kapag stage 1-4 diretso agad ng stage 5 🙁 So ayun sa edad kong 20 Buhay pako! Oo p*t*ngina buhay pko!

Anong reaction nyo sa kwento ng ating bida? Nais nyo bang makaiwas habang kayo ay bata pa? Nakakabahala ba na siya ay nagka chronic kidney disease sa kanyang murang edad?
