This day and age, people are starting to realize that not all water is created equal. Lately, a lot of water companies have been branding in support of their pH levels, in attempt to influence buyers to purchase based off of what is told is "best" for them. The only issue is that consumers are not educated in knowing what pH is actually beneficial for us, along with other factors. I definitely had an idea of what is best, but my partnership with Essentia Water has definitely opened my eyes and educated me to understanding what "good water" consists of. Let me give you a quick breakdown:
The human body has to hold a pH of about 7.4 to survive. Because of daily eating habits from products packed with high acidity such as processed foods, high protein foods, grains, sugar, and some dairy products, your body pH lowers towards the acidic side throughout the day. This can be extremely harmful to your body overtime if it is not regulated with alkaline consumption. Not to knock water companies that have neutral pH levels, but if I'm trying to balance an acidic diet with an alkaline beverage, I need a water with a high enough pH to keep me balanced.
The chart above shows the pH levels of some popular bottled water companies. Only two of these brands have a pH above 9.0, and only one of those go through an ionization and purification process so grand that it is the only bottled water listed in the Physicians’ Desk Reference, commonly recommended by physicians for hydration - and I'm not just saying this because I'm a brand ambassador for Essentia - but the proof is in the pudding.
If you ask me, Essentia is the winner.
