Alkaline Water

So, I've heard of this stuff but the logic behind it seems like a great way to part with your money.

Anyone experience it? This stuff snake oil or any truth to it?
So I love the Okanagan but it's a place best enjoyed from atop a very large pile of $100 bills. - Spocky

As far as I know, the human body has compensation mechanisms to adjust and stabilize pH, so in the end (unless you have kidney issues that inhibit said mechanisms) any attempt to change your body's pH is utterly useless

There are products for this altho I think taking some apple cider vinegar is equally as helpful if you can take it. Also eating less foods that cause acidity like whites and sugars.. Believe it or not acidic looking foods like citrus have an opposite reaction in our gut. you can balance with foods alone.
If I won the lottery I would take each and every one of you to a secluded island in the sea for the biggest party you have ever known. One way. Those of you who love me when you find your way back would be my friends.
