Alkaline Water — what is it? The Potential Hydrogen (pH) scale is numbered from 0 to 14.
The middle mark is 7 and at this point the pH level is considered to be neutral. At a figure below 7 the pH level is acidic and at a figure above 7 it is considered to be alkaline.
The tap water you drink comprises of chlorine, hormones, metals and antibiotics which help to strengthen your immune system. If you drink unclean or impure water then you expose you immune system and make it susceptible to opportunistic infections.
