Lemon juice is another method but equally ineffective, the amount of lemon juice it would take to get any beneficial minerals is a lot, this makes a very, very sour water which not only tastes bad, but wears the enamel of your teeth and can cause an upset stomach.
What about others? Bottom line is don’t trust them, they can contain a host of foreign chemicals, supplements, and who knows what to try and “chemically alter” your water to a better state.
Bottled Alkaline Ionized Water
As the Alkaline Movement is making it’s way into the western world, we are starting to see health stores stocking shelves with all varieties of bottled alkaline water. With an average cost of $2.50 – $3.00 a liter, drinking enough Alkaline bottled water adds up fast. If you drink 1-2 liters a day, that means over $2,000 per year in costs. This is more than some ionizer machines cost themselves. What a rip-off.
In addition, one of the best benefits of alkaline water is its antioxidant potential, which begins fading from the water the moment it is produced, most alkaline water should be consumed within the first 48-72 hours of ionization. What about alkaline bottled water that has been bottled, shipped, stocked, and sat on shelves for months? Good luck with any benefits.
