The Mayo Clinic website reports alkaline water neutralizes acid in blood, boosts energy levels and metabolism and helps the body absorb nutrients more effectively. Bone Health Alkaline water in combination with adequate calcium intake showed reduced bone resorption in women. Bone resorption is a natural process the body undergoes as it ages. This process tends to reduce bone density as bone replacement becomes slower. Reduced bone resorption means greater bone density and lower risk of osteoporosis. This was the conclusion of a 2009 study published in the journal, “Bone.” The study compared alkaline water to calcium-rich acidic water. The decreased bone resorption that results from drinking the alkaline water increased bone density and bone strength.
In the September 2010 issue of “The Journal of the International Society of Sports Medicine,” an American study by DP Heil out of Montana State University showed an improved acid-base balance and hydration status of individuals who drank alkaline water as compared to regular tap water. The article concluded that habitual alkaline water consumption may be a valuable nutritional vector for influencing both acid-base balance and hydration status in healthy adults.
