There has been a trend for lower ph water or more alkaline water in the last decade, but does it affect you and your family's health, or is it just some gimmick pushed by marketing agencies. This blog will dive into the actual benefits and detriments to ph levels in your water and what you can do about it.
pH, which stands for "power of hydrogen," is a method of measuring how acidic/basic a liquid is and the sale from 0, the most acidic, to 14, the most basic, with 7 being neutral. Since our bodies maintain a slightly basic, it gave way to the old hypothesis called the Acid/Ash Hypothesis. Because of this hypothesis, for the last decade or so, many diets and alkaline water products have been pushed as a way to prevent Cancer & Osteoperosis; while this at first glance might seem logical, all re-evaluations of the study have found that to be false which you can find links to much of the research at the link below.

Many people avoid getting a Reverse Osmosis System due to the fact that the pH levels are typically between 5-7, slightly acidic. However, the Reverse Osmosis System eliminates excess levels of lead, chlorine, fluoride, and many other toxins/chemicals that have been proven to be extremely harmful. There are side effects from high blood pressure, brain damage, fertility issues, and more from many of these toxins/chemicals. You can learn more about these contaminants and adverse side effects in the articles below. So you can see how the hype of the Acid/Ash Hypothesis has deterred people from a far healthier and more effective solution to water problems related to health.
