It is actually not stomach acids that digest your food, it's enzymes. Water has no calories, so it doesn't trigger digestion or reduce the stomach acids at all, it just goes straight through. So, anyone saying that it isn't good for the stomach doesn't know what their talking about. Of course, if you are eating meat at the time of drinking alkaline water, that would be unadvisable. Meat and other more acidic foods require stronger acids to digest, and drinking alkaline water at the same time as trying to digest meat can mess up the pH balance. It is suggested that you do not drink alkaline water 30 minutes before or after a meal. The stomach can handle all pH levels and can easily create the acids it needs on demand.
The colon requires an alkaline pH. Colon cancer would be much easier to prevent than to cure. Dr Shinya, who invented the colonoscopy, has done a lot of work with colon cancer. He highly recommends alkaline water to help heal and prevent colon cancer. See the video below for more details:
It is advisable to drink a pH of between 9.5 and 10 in order to not give the body too much of a shock to the system. If you want to drink a higher pH I would suggest starting out with a lower pH and gradually working your way up.
In conclusion, drinking alkaline water helps every part of the body to function better. Visit our site to find a water ionizer of your own www.alkalinewaterplus.com.
