Pros and cons of buying alkaline water

Have you heard of alkaline or "ionized" water? Promoters claim it has all sorts of healing benefits but health experts say research hasn't verified any of those claims yet. Here's what you need to know.

Alkaline water is not distilled water and it's not filtered water, it's actually been electronically charged to raise the PH level. Our bodies strive to maintain a neutral PH of 7.0, but with our junk food diets, sugary sodas and stress levels we raise our levels of acidity.

Enter alkaline water. The idea is that as you raise the alkalinity of your water, you have this better environment inside you body.

Our health expert Peggy Hall suggest that you not spend the money on the alkaline water, instead buy a box of baking soda which has the same effect.
