"One of the longest-lived race of people in the world are called the Hunza. These people, located in the northern Pakistan, are found in several high-altitude mountain valleys. Many Hunza claim to be 150 years old; many others are documented centenarians (over age one hundred). For many years, scientists have pondered the mystery of what makes them so healthy, for they rarely suffer the diseases the rest of us know so well. Some researchers are beginning to believe that the Hunza miracle derives from the water that they drink. The mountain water that flows into the Hunza villages comes from the surrounding glaciers. Structured hexagonally, this water is filled with mineral solutes, and it tests out as highly alkaline

As we have said before, the body uses the blood stream system to dispose of wastes; these are removed in liquid form, and are often deposited in the lungs and kidneys. If there are too many wastes to handle, they are deposited in various organ systems, like the heart, or the pancreas, or the liver, or the colon, or in other locations. Sometimes theses wastes are left on the walls of arteries, and over the years can spread throughout the body.

The break-down of this disposal process, especially of acid wastes, is how we define the aging process. To slow down and reverse this direction, one must begin removing acid wastes from the body.

The best way we have found to do this is to drink alkaline water. This water, having a pH of between of 9 and 11, will first neutralize harmful stored acid wastes, and if you consume it every day, will gently remove them from your body. Yet, since the water is ionized, it will not leach out valuable alkaline minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium, or sodium.

Japanese doctors have treated their patients for over four decades with alkaline water. They believe that the immune system looses its power to throw off disease when the body becomes too acidic. They advocate drinking alkaline water, eating alkaline foods."

What science is available to back up alkaline water health claims?

I am more intrigued by the hexagonal water than anything else lol.

Why would you do that? Why not just drink some bicarbonate and fart the acid out. Probably because it is a bad idea. All I can see being accomplished is acid base chemistry in the stomach leading to water formation and possibly a stomach ache. How are you going to get something basic into your body through your mouth without it going through your stomach? It looks like the anal approach will have to do... Anyone for a bicarbonate butt rinse? Sorry was that inappropriate?

On second thought, I didn't let the question percolate long enough. I suppose you could if you put in the elemental form of the cations or something like that. There may be something to this. I imagine it may have an effect similar to lithium? In fact, this may be the antithesis to the fluoride problem...

its not necessary to take some base in side your stomach.. their are various herbs which are basic in nature when decomposed inside the stomach and edible. one can use those....

Flex got it right.

Your stomach as a very high acid concentration in order to chemically break down food.

If you put something alkaline in your stomach (be it alkaline water or anta-acids), they're going to interact and produce a more neutral ph water and salt.

That's just science fact.

So Alkaline Water is really just marketing.

The walls of the stomach secretes a juice called gastric juice which contains hydrochloric acid and when it becomes a lot in the stomach, we experience stomach aches so we need an alkaline to neutralize the acid to produce salt and water.
HCl +NaOH =NaCl and water
acid +alkaline=salt and water

The theory behind alkaline water is, in a nutshell, that alkaline water is a powerful antioxidant with surplus electrons that can “mop up” the dangerous free radicals you have coursing through your veins. Marketers claim alkaline water can correct excess acidity in your tissues, which can then prevent or reverse cancer, arthritis, and other degenerative diseases.

But as with all "healthy" or "eco" marketing you have to be careful and buy it from a trustworthy source. Because so many companies want to make a scam and just change labels without any change in the quality. That's actually sad.
