Alkaline water has many benefits such as the ability to help detoxify your body. It does this by removing acidic waste products and toxins that your body has accumulated over the day from the environment, prescription drugs and the unnatural processed foods consumed.

Drinking alkaline water will help reduce the aging process and help fight serious health conditions by neutralising the acidity from your cells and tissues.

Your body also super hydrates while drinking alkaline water, which is the basis for optimal health and energy. This means it will enhance your bodyís immune system and maximise its ability to fight off disease and heal itself.

Now you know the importance of alkaline water here are 5 easy ways you can make it at home:

Baking Soda

Baking soda has a high alkaline pH level, which is why we suggest you add it to your water to increase its alkalinity. But first you need to ensure that you filter you tap water first because too many chemicals are added during the purification process. Itís highly recommended that you either use a filter jug or counter top filter to ensure you are drinking clean healthy water.

With that said, add 1/8 teaspoon baking soda to one litre of filtered water. If you are adding it to your water bottle then shake it around before consuming. Alternatively if you are using a glass simply give it a vigorous stir so the baking soda thoroughly mixes in with the water.

pH Drops

pH drops contain potent alkaline minerals, which are highly concentrated. Follow the instructions on the bottle and add the recommended amount to your filtered water. You can easily purchase some pH drops from your local health food store or online.

Alkaline Filter Jugs

If you are looking for an instant way to alkalise your water simply consider purchasing an alkaline filter jug. You wonít need to purchase an expensive ioniser and itís portable so you can have your jug conveniently closer to you.

Not just this, the alkaline filter jug also simultaneously filters out contaminates in your tap water, then turning it into alkaline water for you to sip straight on. Itís quick, easy and a cost and time effective way to get the benefits of alkaline water.

Lemons

A really affordable way to turn your water alkaline is by adding lemon to your water. Lemons are anionic; this means when you drink lemon water your body reacts with the anionic properties of lemon, turning it into alkaline water as your body digests it.

Simply fill a 2 litre jug of filtered water and cut 1 lemon into eighths, add it to your water with 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt and allow it to sit at room temperature for 8-12 hours. The next morning you will have alkaline water to sip throughout the day.

Buy a water Ionizer

An alkaline water ionizer is a home appliance, which raises the pH level of drinking water via ionization. This water system captures more elements than regular water filters, which ultimately alkalizes the water more completely. This means you have instant purified alkaline water once it passes through the filters. This method can be more costly, which is why some simply opt for more affordable options.

Bottom Line: Drinking alkaline water is really beneficial for your health and well-being and itís something that you should start doing to gain more energy, vitality and better health. There are many ways to make alkaline water and some are more affordable than others. So be sure to choose the method that best suits your needs and budgets.
