The pH level of drinking water can vary. Some water sources are more on the acidic side, while others are more alkaline. There are several factors that affect water pH, including chemicals, minerals, pollutants, bedrock or soil composition, and any other contaminants that interact with the water supply. The ideal pH level for drinking water is between 6.5 and 8.5. However, water that is more alkaline with a higher pH of 8 or 9 can provide numerous health benefits.

Benefits of Alkaline Water

Alkaline water offers many health benefits, including:

  • Supporting the immune system
  • Improving metabolism

Make Sure You're Drinking the Best Water Available

Creating alkaline water can be done easily by adding essential minerals to your drinking water. You can achieve this through the use of the Mayu Swirl Essential Mineral Drops, which make it simple to create alkaline water in the comfort of your own home. Another way to improve the quality and pH level of your water is to restructure the water molecules to create structured water. The Mayu Swirl carafe uses a unique swirling motion to aerate the water, rejuvenating it, improving its taste, and increasing its pH level.

For the best quality water, it is recommended to use both the mineral drops and the Mayu Swirl together. To get started, the Mayu Starter Kit contains both the mineral drops and the carafe, making it easy to create alkaline, structured water that is both delicious and beneficial for your health.
