What is the Best Water to Drink? This question is a Major Health Question You Need to Ask
Healthy Water: Signs Your Children may not be Getting Enough
h/t today.com More than half of all U.S. kids are not getting enough hydration probably because they’re not drinking enough water, researchers reported Thursday. Even mild dehydration can cause headaches, irritability, poorer physical performance, and can hurt learning, and the team found thousands of children and teens had clear evidence of dehydration. Black children and boys were at higher risk than whites and girls, Erica Kenney and colleagues at the Harvard School of Public Health found.
Your body is about 75% water. Your brain is about 85% water. Doesn’t it make sense to make sure your and your children are getting enough healthy water? Notice we are not saying water, but healthy water. Here is the problem, we may be thinking are drinking healthy water but we are not. So parents get confused when their children are drinking a lot of the water but still but still showing symptoms.
SO how do you know if water is healthy?
To help answer the question, what is the best water to drink, here is some more in depth discussions on the subject:

Here are 3 conditions for healthy water:
1. What is the Best Water to Drink? It needs deep Water Filtration
Water should be filtered to the NSF 52 standard, NSF 273 Standard and not just to the 42 standard. If you are drinking water from a ‘filtered pitcher’ or your refrigerator, it’s almost a certainty filtered for taste or clarity, almost the definition of NSF Standard 42 – Aesthetic Effects. And, therefore, they are giving you no health advantage. To the point, take all the bad stuff out.
2. What is the Best Water to Drink? It needs a Higher pH
[8.5 -9.5] Value
Most Water is highly acidic. The best water to drink is has a higher pH value of 8.5 – 9.5. Your body makes enough acid in our saliva and stomach for digestion of food. You do not have to add any more to help out. In fact modern lifestyles and diets do just that; adding acid leading to an acid reflux condition. The rest of the body likes a higher pH while sickness and disease like a more acid environment. The benefits of water with a pH of 8.5 to 9.0 is good for your body and not as good for disease.
This little test on some well-known water may shock you.
3. What is The Best Water to Drink? It Needs An Alive Water Full of the Right Minerals
The mineral content of your water is closely associated with the pH or alkalinity of water. Typically, the more minerals, the higher the pH. So this leads us to ‘dead’ water. RO or reverse osmoses treated water is very clean water but it is also very lacking in minerals and therefore very acidic and unhealthy. So that means, we need water with all the bad stuff taken out but with minerals added back in.
