Alkalinity has become a buzzword in the health community. While some argue it’s a cure-all for a list of ailments, others question whether or not there has been an adequate amount of research to support these claims. Alkalinity is directly related to the pH scale, a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a food or beverage. On the pH scale, which goes from 1 to 14, 7 is neutral. Anything above 7 is alkaline, while everything that falls below 7 is acidic.
Many believe there is a direct correlation between a properly alkalized diet (high pH) and an improved sense of wellbeing. This should come as no surprise, seeing as the most alkaline foods are the ones we know we should be eating (broccoli, bananas, cucumbers, kale, spinach) and the most acidic foods are the ones we know we should avoid (burgers, french fries, sodas, processed flour).
If you have kids or don’t prefer veggies yourself, it can be difficult to eat a healthy balance of nutrients. That’s where Mountain Valley comes in.
Mountain Valley Spring Water has a naturally high pH of 7.8. Mountain Valley contains a higher alkalinity than the vast majority of other leading brands of bottled water. It’s suggested that water with a higher alkalinity helps soothe acid reflux, neutralizes acid in the bloodstream, facilitates higher levels of energy and can lead to improved metabolism. Drinking Mountain Valley can be an easy, enjoyable way to counteract overly acidic diets. While the majority of bottled water rests at least one point below neutral on the pH scale, Mountain Valley has a natural excess of alkalinity to help you find a natural balance.
