Does Alkaline Water Promote Health?
Manufacturers of water ionizers state
that their products produce more alkaline
water, which allows your body to better
absorb minerals and antioxidants from water.
Are these health claims real? Do you recommend
Home water ionizers are just the latest
twist in the ongoing effort to promote
the notion that alkaline water is somehow
protective of your health. The underlying
idea is that you can prevent disease by
balancing your body's pH. Promoters claim
that alkaline water is energizing, hydrates
the body more effectively than regular
water, improves the taste of food when
used in cooking, promotes "regularity,"
helps the body absorb nutrients more effectively,
and on and on. I've even seen claims that
it can cure everything from obesity and
high blood pressure to breast cancer.
None of these claims are true. Furthermore,
your body needs absolutely no help in adjusting
its pH. Normally, the pH of blood and most
body fluids is near seven, which is close
to neutral. This is under very tight biological
control because all of the chemical reactions
that maintain life depend on it. Unless
you have serious respiratory or kidney
problems, body pH will remain in balance
no matter what you eat or drink.
As for water, you should consider the fact
that alkaline water is common throughout
the western states but to my knowledge
it has not protected anyone from the diseases
and disorders that occur elsewhere in the
The health claims for water ionizers and
for alkaline water are bogus. Save your

What is bottled water?
"Bottled water" or "drinking water"
is sealed in a food-grade container, meets all applicable
state and federal standards, and is sold for human consumption.
Bottled water must be free of sugar or other sweeteners,
calories or chemical additives. Flavored bottled water
contains less than one percent of flavor extracts by
weight of the product. Some bottled waters contain natural
or added carbonation. Aerobic Water is just pure water,
with no flavor or carbonation added
Is bottled water safe?
Yes! Bottled water is strictly regulated by the federal
Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Texas Department
of Health. Aerobic Water
is 99.99% free of all contaminants.
Is bottled water "better" than tap water?
Many people prefer bottled water because of its guaranteed
quality and taste. Bottled water is regulated as a food
product, while tap water is regulated as a utility.
Bottled water is sealed in a sanitary container before
it travels to you. Tap water travels to you through
an assortment of pipes and storage tanks. Some people
can detect the taste of chlorine in tap water. Constant
attention to the purification process and consistent
taste make Aerobic Water a choice you can be sure of.
How should bottled water be stored?
Store your bottled water in a cool (comfortable room
temperature), dry place away from household cleaning
products or chemicals such as paint, gasoline, or solvents.
The FDA has not established a shelf life for bottled
water - you can use Aerobic Water indefinitely if you
store it properly.
Will bottled water stored for a long time pick
up a plastic taste from the bottle?
The type of plastic used for Aerobic Water is high
quality, food grade plastic that will not give your
stored water a plastic taste.
