What is alkaline water?

Michael Hutchinson Updated by Michael Hutchinson

Natural water on our planet ranges in pH from 6.5 to 9.0, depending on surrounding soil and vegetation, seasonal variations and weather, and even time of day responses to sunlight. Human activities, such as industrial processes that result in a barrage of toxic pollutants, further influence the pH of our water.

Alkaline water can be produced in a number of ways. Santevia alkaline water is created through the addition of natural alkaline minerals which work to raise the pH of the water to between 8.5 and 9.5 on the pH scale.

Drinking and cooking with alkaline water has been found to increase vitality and energy levels, clean and detoxify the body and decrease the symptoms of some illnesses.
