Has anyone looked into the PH levels of bottled water?  It dawned on me last night that I have been drinking different brands of bottled water throughout the week and my heartburn can be worse at some times than others (even if I am eating the same thing.  This article says anything under 7 is acidic.  Most of the bottled waters you buy at the store are way under 7.  What are we supposed to do when water gives you HEARTBURN??!?!?  I tried finding a local retailer for Evamore but no one carries it.  Getting it online is too expensive.  Any thoughts?

wow. That just gave me something more to think and worry about. I never even thought about that. I have noticed that at times drinking water does not help and sometimes it does. Like you I buy differant brands all the time, usually the cheapest on the shelf since I drink so much water. Wonder how you find this out without buying a PH kit and testing each brand and bottle.

Raydio - if you look on the link posted above, it lists the PH in most store bought brand. I've heard you can buy PH testing strips online. I usually do as you do, we buy whatever is on sale. The highest PH level water you can buy at the store is Fiji. I bought some last night and will let you know if I see a difference.

You can also buy alkaline drops off amazon to add to water

I bought Iceland pure spring water ph 8.88 at Walgreens. Everytime I go into a store now I look at the ph.

I ordered these test strips from Amazon to test drinking water pH. I tested the pH of Evamor and Essentia. They seem fairly accurate.

I found out that filtering tap water reduces the pH down to about 5 - so I stopped using the jug filter. Didn't help my symptoms though. What are the drops called please?

I think 5 is still very acidic. Arrowhead is a 7 and Fiji is a 7.5
