Alkaline water can be very beneficial while you’re pregnant so your body stays hydrated and to account for the extra alkaline minerals your baby needs. Read more about that in our “Alkaline Water and Pregnancy” post.
But before that stage even starts, you can start drinking alkaline water if you’re trying to get pregnant. Why would you want to do that? Because it can help your odds.
How Does Alkaline Water Help You Get Pregnant?
This kind of water can actually encourage your body to be as fertile as possible because it can promote better health through a proper pH balance within your body. Sources that give information on improving your fertility talk about cutting out too much acidic food from your diet and adding more alkaline foods, such as certain vegetables and dairy products. Drinking alkaline water can provide the same benefit.
Sperm cells can have trouble with the acidic environment found in the vagina, so you can help them improve their chances of success by trying to have an effect on the pH levels of the body. Introducing more alkaline to your body could change the cervical fluid and help create more alkaline cervical mucus that is more hospitable to sperm.
In addition to drinking more of this water, think about changing your diet. Add more alkaline-promoting vegetables, including green beans, cabbage, broccoli, cucumber, spinach and more. Also eat nuts, seeds and fruits, including avocado, watermelon, grapefruit, bananas, almonds and pumpkin seeds. Try to cut down on the acid-promoting foods, including coffee, vinegar, sugar, meat, pasta and more.
Another way this water helps you is by providing the benefits of water in general. Drinking a lot of water can minimize the levels of toxins in your body to create a healthier environment. Water is also beneficial for helping your reproductive system work correctly, so it can help improve your odds of conceiving. Ionized water includes micro clusters that make it more refreshing, which encourages you to drink more, and it hydrates your body better by being absorbed into your cells more easily than regular water.
Probably the easiest way to get more alkaline water in your diet is to create it yourself at home. For this purpose, hook up a water ionizer to your tap, and you can change the pH of your water. By making some quick settings on the machine, you’ll easily have refreshing alkaline ionized water to increase your chances of getting pregnant. Then, if you are successful, continue to drink alkaline water during your pregnancy for its benefits during this process.
