We’ve gone over the immense benefits, now it’s time to learn how to make it!
In this segment, we’ll highlight a few ways that you can go about making alkaline water at home.
Before we begin, there are a few important things that need to be addressed and understood, through and through.
Firstly, make sure that you pay the utmost attention to detail when working with the ingredients. A slight off-balance of pH can be a little disorienting, and awfully inconvenient if not made properly. Hence, it’s a good idea to get all the details right.
With that said, here are the best ways you can go about making alkaline water!
Ionized water with Lemon Juice
The first method that you can use to make ionized water at home is via lemon juice.
Generally speaking, the citrus in lemon is highly acidic, with a pH around the range of 3.
However, the alkaline component comes into play when the juice reacts with water and gives off alkaline by-products.
This is what effectively raises the pH of the water.
The correct proportion, though it might vary from user to user, is about ⅛ tablespoon to 8 ounces of water.
Alkaline water with Baking soda
The next best method to make alkaline water is by adding baking soda.
Alkaline in nature, this is a very simple process. However, you’ll have to make sure that you get the proportion right, or else the drink might be unpleasant.
The ratio of tablespoon to water is the same as lemon juice. Make sure that you mix thoroughly till no droplets remain and the drink is clear!
Alkaline water with pH drops
pH drops are also a very convenient way to make alkaline water on the go.
Since they are so small and easy to carry, pH drops are highly recommended if you’re on the go or need to make your water alkaline at any point during the day.
In most cases, all you’ll need are a few drops and you’ll have ionized water in front of you. The drops contain the relevant minerals and electrolytes that make water alkaline!
Alkaline water with Water filter pitcher
A water filter pitcher is another easy way to get alkaline water. However, the main downside about this is that you can’t really get higher pH with this technique.
What the pitcher does is that it effectively removes chlorine from the water, which increases the alkalinity. This system is dependent entirely on the type of filter used.
In other words, the water filter pitcher is only as good as the filter.
Alkaline water with Filtration system
Water filtration systems are those that we’re most familiar with.
In most models, a mineral ball often comes as an accessory that can be inserted into the filter.
This makes sure that the water that comes out is a little alkaline in nature, and contains the relevant minerals and electrolytes required.
Water ionizers come with the prime purpose of turning normal water into alkaline water.
They’ll help you immensely down the road, and will make sure that you get the performance and water quality that you’re after!
We hope that the aforementioned techniques suffice. If you’ve got any pointers you’d like to throw our way, or want to share your experience with the techniques mentioned above, do share them in the comment section below!
