The harder you work out, the quicker your performance levels drop due to muscle fatigue caused by the body’s buildup of lactic acid and toxins that reduce the body’s pH levels, which in turn limit the muscle fibers from their full potential.
However, increasing your body’s pH (PH refers to the acidity of drinking water) by drinking alkaline water will boost performance and endurance levels during intense anaerobic activities, such as sprinting and weightlifting.
Why? Alkalinity retains the muscles ability to efficiently use oxygen longer during periods of high physical activities through greater hydration at the cell level.
The pH Scale below will provide a snap shot of how pH (Potential Hydrogen) is measured. Keep in mind that too much alkaline is also not good for the body. The scale below is logarithmic, which means that each whole number is 10 times greater than the previous. For example, a pH of 6 is 10 times more acidic than a pH of 7.
Therefore when some alkaline waters sold advertise an alkalinity of 9 + and the body’s pH neutrality is 7. That 9+ PH is 100 times the level of pH from neutral. Not everything greater is better for the body. The recommended range of pH in drinking water is 6.5 to 8.5.
