Hey Guys!, I hope you all are doing well. As the new month hits up, I am back with something exciting😉!
As the title drops some literal hints, let me introduce the term around which this very whole market retails Alkaline water😚,
pH: often referred to as "Power of Hydrogen" in layman terms. It is a scale that denotes the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution.
Now, before we proceed, let's pour some water.
What Exactly is Alkaline Water?
Water with a higher pH level (upwards of 7) on a pH scale.
How it's different?
Now, this is undoubtedly the main point of today's blog. So, to simplify things, we have something for you guys😉.
"Alkalen," one of the largest companies in the Alkaline Water Industry, supplied us with the bottles to feel the difference.
But as usual we did something different😁,
At first, we poured a few drops (s) of ORP test solution, and as the water was alkaline, the test came negative; see the image below, the water turns pale pink, which means it has negative ORP. Otherwise, it would have been colorless.
What does this mean?
ORP stands for Oxidation-reduction potential. It signifies whether a particular substance is an oxidizing or a reducing agent. In the above case, alkaline water turns out to be a reducing agent, enabling it to have anti-oxidant properties. I guess most of us here have heard the word "anti-oxidant," so go check out on the internet the benefits of anti-oxidants!
Also, tap water and regular packed water bottles give a positive reading on ORP Test, meaning they remain colorless.
2. Secondly, we did a pH test as "Alkalen" claims to be India's first Alkaline water brand with a pH of up to 9.5. So, we first dropped a few drops of pH solution in the glass, and instantly the water was hued with blue-purple, and as per the scale that came with the test kit, the pH lies in the range of 9.5-10. So, the claims stand legit in our tests.
3. We did check its TDS (inorganic salts and small amounts of organic matter present in solution in water); it was in the range 94-96 PPM in our TDS meters which makes it absolutely fit for consumption as per standards.
What is the feel?
The people who tasted it for the first time reported a little sweetness over regular water. Please, interpret the meaning of "sweetness" in context to water😅. For me, there was no difference in taste or feel.
What difference does it create?
When asked about its benefits and the difference Alkaline water creates from the perspective of a health freak, I was told that it helps them with better hydration, less muscle fatigue, prolonged workout periods. In contrast, when asked from a lifestyle perspective, people said that it feels light to them, and they feel good about gut health. So, answers are differentiated based on their utility.
Should I adopt it in my lifestyle?
It is purely your call whether to adopt it or not, but I would suggest trying out it once, and if you feel the difference, you can consider going forward for it.
So that is the end of today's ByteBlog, and I hope you guys liked it. I will be back with something exciting next month😙. Till then, I wish you good health😊.
