There have been many studies done on the topic of alkaline water and whether it has any benefits on our health at all. There have even been numerous books written by doctors on this topic including Dr Shinya's famous book "The Enzyme Factor".
Let me first make a disclaimer here - "Anything I've written here are reflected of my views and are not to be taken as evidence or scientific claims of any sort."
Let's start with the first side of the argument, or rather the positive side. People have claimed they feel more energetic after drinking alkaline water. I feel this could be a placebo effect and they may actually have felt more energetic either way if they were told that "normal" water was "alkaline" water.
Now the other side of the argument, the negative side. The microcluster effect of ionized alkaline water is bogus. There have been many experiments conducted that microcluster water can penetrate at the cellular level. Take a bag of green tea for example. If you pour room temperature tap water into a glass with the green tea bag it will take hours to turn into green tea or even stop drawing out the essence at some point.
However if you put ionized alkaline water into a glass with a green tea bag in it, it will instantly draw out the essence of the green tea and you get great tasting green tea almost immediately!. So whether this has the same effect in hydrating your cells faster and better or not is rather controversial.
There are many other positive and negative claims on the health benefits of ionized alkaline water. Which side do you take?
