No evidence it helps: Alkaline water has a higher ph level than does plain tap water, proponents say that it can neutralize acid in your bloodstream, boost your metabolism and help your body absorb nutrients more effectively. Some even say that alkaline water can help prevent disease and slow the aging process. However, researchers haven't verified these claims.

Water: The healthiest is pure water. Tap water may contain contaminants, chemicals and if comes from well or city town source. Can have it tested. Simple - buy brita water filter. Why do want alkaline water? Guess put alka seltzer in water, voila alkaline water good stomach upset. Shame but pure water hard to find naturally. Bottled ok but plastic bottles problem. Get good water filter.
