Alkaline Water or Tap Water, Benefits and Cost?

A water ionizer transforms ordinary tap water into ionized alkaline water. There are three main qualities of ionized alkaline water that make it better than plain water. The first reason alkaline water is superior to plain water is that it tastes better. Better tasting water helps you improve your hydration status simply because you drink more of it. Research has proven that alkaline water tastes sweeter and more refreshing than regular water.

Think about this: You have to drink water every day for the rest of your life; you are more likely to drink enough water every day if the water you are drinking is delicious!

Alkaline water clinically tested for digestive health
In Japan, alkaline water was compared to plain water in double-blind, randomized, clinical trials on people with digestive upset. These clinical trials showed that 88% of people who drank alkaline water reported full or partial relief of their upset stomach. Plain water did not show any effect on digestive upset. These clinical trials were conclusive enough for the Japanese Ministry of Health to certify alkaline water ionizers as medical devices for treatment of minor digestive upset.

Fact: The Japanese clinical trials showed that alkaline water leads to gradual – not immediate – relief of symptoms (about 2 – 4 weeks). For immediate relief of digestive upset, you need to take medication!

Alkaline water linked to better bone health
The strongest clinical evidence of alkaline water’s superiority over plain water is for bone health. Alkaline water has been shown to reduce calcium loss, and lower two markers of bone loss. The way to maintain good bone health is to prevent bone loss. Alkaline water has been compared to plain water, and acidic water, and the evidence is clear: Calcium loss is reduced when you drink alkaline water, plain water does not reduce calcium loss.

Even the Mayo Clinic agrees! Studies of alkaline water show a positive link to bone health.

Save money on alkaline water with a water ionizer
Alkaline water is better than plain water, but if you buy it by the bottle, the cost of it can add up quickly! Most bottled alkaline waters cost around $2.50 for a 16 oz bottle. To get enough alkaline water for one person, it would cost $75 dollars a month!

You can finance a water ionizer for about $60 a month, and have it paid off in a year or two. A water ionizer also gives you a lot more alkaline water than you would get buying bottled water. If your long term health plans include drinking healthy water, a water ionizer is a smart investment. You get better tasting water that’s better for you for pennies per gallon.

Compare and save: A year’s supply of bottled water (for one person, one 16 oz bottle per day) is about $900. A good, entry level ionizer costs about $1500. This means that you will break even compared to bottled water in about one year and six months. Two people sharing one ionizer will break even in less than a year!
