Water is the essence of life. That is why it is important that the water we drink be clean, pure, sanitary, and without contaminates. There are many benefits to drinking more acidic water. For example, it is much more sanitary.
Alkaline water is perfect for this reason. Ionized water typically has a pH balance that lies anywhere between 7 and 10. This is why alkaline water has been used in the food industry to sanitize food products, as well as remove bacteria which may be harmful to us.
