    You paid $5 for 3 litres of water with baking soda in it.

    How do you feel?

    I went from 9 inches to 13 inches simply by drinking alkaline water...

    Oh wait....never mind.

    There are a lot of benefits. Drink it...but get a machine. Don't buy it bottled. By the time you get it, bottled has lost its alkalinity.

    This one is less than $900 and it identical to ones costing $5K.

    What the fuck am I reading?

    What is the benefits of this? I drink 6 litres of water per day, I drink exclusively bottled magners, bulmers and tap water.

    Our tap water is ph 8.2 which is pretty alkaline... Why is that good?

    I read on other thread someone stating that it tastes like dog poop. Was that you? Go get green tea, I am going to make one for myself now.

    It sucks, life is a lie. I will drink plain water only now on, I hate vitamins and anything the health industry wants you to believe.

    If you have a well balanced diet you don't need to buy vitamins.

    Should have sent with yerba mate. My girlfriend says it gives lots of energy but you must drink regularly and be prepared to pee 50%+ more.

    I'm eating lots of fruits, Pedigree, and salads, better than vitamins in my opinion.

    I cant even tell what the dubious claims of all this are other than typical health benefit claims. It sure reads like total BS and/or science fiction with the emphasis being on the word fiction.

    The health benefits/necessities of alkaline water are pretty obvious. Calcium carbonate raises ph we kind of need calcium and other micronutrients.

    Now how soft in the head do you have to be to believe some marketing drivel about needing to buy it in a bottle. Unless your water comes straight from a peat bog it's alkaline shit bust.

    I have some acai and raspberry keytones you should really buy because a single page site on t-internet says so.

    Edited to add-- I've just read what the Oracle of the information superhighway had to say and I call exaggeration. Drinking water does loads of things but not so prescribed as the marketing claims.

    You can google for plans to build your own alkalizer machine. It's pretty simple.

    Alkaline water does help if you have acid reflux/lpr so its not complete bs.
