Am I doing any damage to my body if I just prefer the taste? I get my 5 gallon jugs refilled at the alkaline water store instead of the regular reverse osmosis store; there's no box/bottle waste for me. I pay a little more for it but once again I simply just prefer the taste. Am I depriving myself of needed acidity or some sort of minerals?
The only issue you may run into is slightly neutralizing the acid (raising ghee pH) in your stomach which could affect digestion of food. Almost like taking an antacid, like Tums. Couldn't say how much it would affect the acid level though.

Just to add: just don't drink it around the time you eat or take any medicine.

Alkaline water is totally safe. That's kind of the whole issue. It is essentially just water. The amount of base is negligible.

You would have to eat tablets of solid alkaline base to affect stomach pH. That is what Tums are, chunks of a base called sodium bicarbonate.

If you like it, go for it, but distilled water basically is JUST water. "Drinking water" or "Spring water" have minerals added for flavor and mouth feel.

I find distilled water tastes flat. Drinking water is my preference. (Ozarka, etc)

Also, distilled water works great for nasal rinses and mixed with coolant for your car's engine.
This is false. Distilled water is actually unsafe because it throws off your osmolarity and can cause significant problems over time. See below

"According to studies, drinking distilled water alone without any food intake will kill you because of its inability to replace the minerals our body needs. Distilled water is hypotonic to red blood cells which can be dangerous in the long run. Fasting while drinking distilled water can be dangerous to one's health."

Internal medicine doctor here (and PhD chemist). There is absolutely no health benefit to alkaline water. Your kidneys and lungs are easily able to eliminate thousands of times more acid than this very mildly alkaline water neutralizes. Acidic water tastes better. Transporting water is incredibly inefficient and wastes fuel. The disposable packaging pollutes the earth. Get your water tested. If there are any issues, then get a water filter. Its just that easy. Don't pay attention to this Idiocracy-level pseudoscience stuff. It is just marketing.
Well, at least it doesn't contain fluoride.
If the municipal water systems in the U.S. would discontinue their deliberate addition of toxic fluoride sourced from aluminum smelting and/or phosphate fertilizer industries (often imported from China), then maybe we can discuss the pros & cons of alkaline drinking water.

agreed. but how do we hold corporations accountable when they are in every politician's pocket? or are we just doomed?

Read a study that suggested otherwise. I cant imagine that these alkalinized water products can't have any buffering effect with a pH >8.

That's not a study. They put pepsin in alkaline water and saw if it denatured. That's biochemistry, and to try and draw clinical implications from it is non-sense.
The author is also a famous quack who pushes a likely fictitious disorder (laryngopharyngeal reflux disease) and who thinks upper endoscopy is barbaric/unsafe and should only be done transnasally.

Tums is not NaBicarb, it's CaCarboate. NaBicarb is baking soda.

I'm not sure how much base is in this. But realize even ingesting base only results in transient changes in gastric pH. The stomach responds to any change in pH by trying to pump out more acid. Which is why things like Tums, Maalox, etc won't heal damage to the esophagus (esophagitis) or stomach ulcers, versus medications that result in a sustained increase in gastric pH > 4 (ie, proton pump inhibitors).

Acid is important in absorption of certain vitamins and minerals (eg iron has to be oxidized to Fe3+, calcium in the form of CaCarbonate would need to be liberated in an acidic environment, dietary B12 is freed from animal protein in the acidic stomach with assistance of pepsin, etc.). I doubt this would have any significant effect on absorption, but I still wouldn't take it with say iron supplements (we actually encourage people to drink orange juice while on iron supplements to help with absorption.)

I agree. But I was talking strictly about drinking with food. I guess you are saying the body would instantly respond to the rise in pH by producing more HCl. If that is the case, I guess you could drink all the alkaline water you want during your meals.

Not trying to spread misinformation. Thought you would at least see rises in pH that could affect digestion if you are drinking around the time you eat.

If I am incorrect, it only means I have learned something here. Thanks.

Youve got two MDs here who are saying that alkaline water is too weakly basic to have an effect on anything. I agree that the paper you linked to is written by a quack. The amount of acid in your stomach is so much greater than the base in the alkaline water that the water wouldn't change a thing about the pH.

Two things cure cancer. Alkaline water and smoking the reefer.

TU, but I'm not sure if a bottle/carton of water is enough to drag me in that store. It seems like most of the produce is priced like Whole Foods but without the quality.

What? Sprouts produce sales are the cheapest around. but yes it's probably because they are getting the ildest produce.

It's WAY cheaper than whole foods
Iagree i've gotten very good deals on produce at Sprouts. maybe if it's not on sale it's not that great a price but when you can get cantelope for .98 cents and 16 oz strawberries for $1.50 each, it's much cheaper than the regular grocery store like Vons.
