There’s a lot of misinformation online about alkaline water.Alkaline water, or water with a high pH level, is the new fad in drinking water. For reference, most tap water and bottled water has a pH level between 6 and 7. Numbers closer to 1 represent high acidity, and numbers closer to 10 represent very high alkalinity.A naturally alkaline drinking water typically has a pH between 7 and 8, while artificially alkaline water can have pH of up to 10.So how do you know which water is best for you? What are the positives and negatives of naturally alkaline water and artificial water?Marketing claims surrounding alkaline water range from slowing the aging process, to regulating your body’s pH level, to preventing chronic diseases such as cancer. Some bottled water companies are selling water, modified with chemicals and baking soda, to reach higher pH levels than their competition.But there’s a problem with that.Water in the natural environment becomes alkaline by flowing over rocks and picking up vital minerals along its journey. Castle Rock Water is a great example of a naturally alkaline water that is never modified from its natural form in any way.Artificial alkaline water likely contains fewer minerals necessary for good health than its high pH would have you believe, and overuse of that kind of water could leave you deficient. Water manufacturers often begin with a distilled water, stripped of all beneficial minerals, then add chemicals to increase the pH. This is not only unhealthy water, it can also negatively alter the taste.Because Castle Rock Water is naturally alkaline, its pH can change from bottle to bottle. Typically the water found in Castle Rock’s glass bottles has a pH between 7 and 8, which is in the perfect range to be considered a living whole alkaline water. Plus, it retains its living structure that other bottled waters lose in the storage and treatment processes.Castle Rock Water flows naturally through the streams of Mt. Shasta and is bottled in its purest form, without additional filtration or modification.
