Body pH Level
PH8 Natural Alkaline Mineral Water is named after its high alkaline pH level of 8.3 from the source.
A thick layer of limestone alkalizes the water as it filters through to the aquifer.
The degree of acidity or alkalinity of a solution is measured in a value between 1 – 14 known as pH ‘Power of Hydrogen‘. Alkaline water contains a large concentration of molecules that have one or more extra electrons. Alkaline water gives up an extra electron to acidic Hydrogen molecules that have been stripped of their electron.
It is essential that the bloods pH is carefully maintained by various systems of the body to stay between 7.35 and 7.45. When the blood gets overloaded with acids, alkaline minerals such as bicarbonate, magnesium, potassium and calcium is drawn from the body to maintain the blood’s pH. If the body lacks reserves of these alkaline minerals, acid is stored in the muscle and fatty tissues. In order to remove acid waste from the body, the blood requires alkaline minerals to buffer the acid toxins stored in the body tissue.
