WA­TER, COOLER

Fashion (Canada) - - Rx -

Un­less you’re the science-y type, you prob­a­bly haven’t given the pH of your wa­ter much thought. But a wave of al­ka­line wa­ters has us talk­ing acid­ity. In the­ory, an acidic body is one in which dis­ease thrives; so eat­ing more al­ka­line foods like kale and fewer acidic ones like donuts can help us achieve op­ti­mal health. The pH scale runs from 1 (acid) to 14 (al­ka­line), so al­ka­line wa­ter is higher than the neu­tral value of 7. While our body has built-in sys­tems (like our kid­neys) to reg­u­late our pH, some health ex­perts say gulp­ing min­eral-rich wa­ter and skip­ping the cho­co­late

dip can help. It’s not a cure-all, but con­sider it H2O 2.0.
