The claim is that alkaline water, with a higher pH and altered chemical structure, is easier to absorb, which facilitates hydration. Not so fast… Health professor Dr. Dan Heil from Montana State University says there’s no solid scientific data to support those claims. Because our body neutralizes pH on its own, nothing we drink can affect our pH. However, alkaline water is a little sweeter than standard water. So if that helps increase your water intake, it certainly couldn’t hurt to sip it.
