Alkaline Water Why If You Drink It For A Sore Throat?
why does alkaline water drink for sore throats? I once tried to buy it because I didn’t know it was normal mineral water or alkaline water … I think with a pH 8 that is different from the usual it is more refreshing when I drink. but after I tried to stop it and drink mineral water that I used to buy gradually my throat improved. why is that? because I read on the web he said alkaline water is good for health when drinking regularly … but I don’t feel that way … and he said it could be for acne and even skin problems .. please explain doc. thank you.
Hello Eka, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Alkaline water is water that contains a higher pH than ordinary water. Normally, water contains a neutral pH of 7, but alkaline water can contain pH 8-9. Alkaline water is widely known by people to overcome several diseases, such as helping to overcome blood pressure, blood sugar, stomach acid, bone health, prevent dehydration, etc.
At present there are several manufacturers of bottled drinks that provide artificial alkaline water. Initially, natural alkaline water is obtained directly from springs that pass through rocks and absorb minerals, thereby increasing pH. While artificial alkaline water is processed using a machine or ionizer that works to increase the pH of plain water.
Until now there has been no research that proves the benefits of the use of alkaline water. So it needs to be careful in consuming alkaline water, especially its pH levels. Drinking alkaline water with a pH that is too high can pose a risk of alkalosis. Alkalosis has the potential to occur in sufferers of kidney disease or severe lung disease. This condition can also reduce calcium levels in the body so that it can cause damage to the bones.
If during consumption you have a complaint that occurs in yourself, then you should stop using it. Consult a doctor immediately if complaints become more severe.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
