ph Levels in Bottled Water

I am a big proponent of filtered water and alkaline water, in particular. It can be very confusing, however, to choose between the dozens and dozens of types of bottled water out there. I got this email from Jim, over at Good Health Supplements, and he breaks it down easily by ph level.

The body functions best with a slightly alkaline ph level and cannot stay healthy in an overly-acid environment. Where does your favorite bottle water rank on the ph level scale below?

For those of you who are die-hard bottle water drinkers, I offer the following list of popular brands of bottled waters and their pH range. Keep in mind that a pH of 8 and above is the only range that is beneficial to your good health:

Water with a pH of 4.
Penta Water, Distilled Water, Purified Water, Aquafina (made by Pepsi), Dasani (made by Coke), Glaceau Fruit Water, Le Blue Water, Metro Mint Water, Pellegrino (made by Nestle), Perrier (made by Nestle), Smart Water, and Vitamin Water.


Water with a pH of 4.5.
Reverse Osmosis Water and Ice Age Glacial Water.

Water with a pH of 5.
Appalachian Springs Water and Poland Springs Water (made by Nestle)

Water with a pH of 5.5.
Crystal Springs Water, Dannon Spring Water, Pure American Water.

All of the above bottled waters have an acidic ph, which does not support health waters

Water with a pH of 7.
Arrowhead Water, Crystal Geyser Water, Deep Park Water (made by Nestle), Eldorado Springs Water, Supermarket Spring Water.

Water with a pH of 7.5.
Biota water, Fiji Water, Whole Foods 365 Water, Zephyrhills Water (made by Nestle)

Water with a pH of 7.9.
Eden Springs Water.

Water with a pH of 8.
Deep Rock Water, Evamore Water.

Water with a pH of 10
Filtered Ionized Alkaline Water you make with your own Water Ionizer.

The advantage of ionized alkaline water is two fold.

Cost: Less then 2 cents a day for all the water you can drink, high antioxidant, high alkaline and micro-clustered water for more available oxygen for energy.

Improve health, lose weight, and have more energy. Improve the environment as less then 10% of plastic water bottles make it to recycling.

  2. Scott: Glad to be of help. Just added another page on ionized water and ph balance on my main site at
    http://www.askahealer.com/phbalance.htm

    Also added sections covering some of the ways you can use alkaline water and the benefits of drinking alkaline water
    http://www.askahealer.com/alkaline-ionized-water.htm

    And ways to use acidic water for a whole different set of benefits. Note that acidic water should only be used EXTERNALLY

  3. I think you meant to say that Acidic water should only be used externally.

  4. Oh my goodness, YES, Jwistler.

    Acidic water should only be used EXTERNALLY. That was a typo and I so appreciate you bringing that to my attention. I have corrected the mistake.
