Water is a combination of hydrogen and oxygen. That’s why you call it H2O. Alkaline water refers to its pH levels. The pH level is a number that measures how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0-14. For example, something that has a pH of 1 would be very acidic and if a pH level of 13, would be very alkaline. Most beverages are around a 4-5 pH level, making them very acidic.
Vodka sodas are carbonated with carbon dioxide leading to an acidic drink that can be harsh on the stomach and throat. Alkaline water assists in greater hydration than regular water. Additionally drinking pH balanced water can also help to improve your mental awareness, prevent heartburn, flush toxins from your body and protect your skin in the sun.
