1.Natural alkaline mineral water and artificial alkaline water, which is good?

Natural alkaline mineral water and artificial alkaline water, which type should be used? May frequently drinking a large amount of alkaline mineral water cause kidney stones? (Audience Nguyen Thuy Vy – email address: vy.nt…

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Dear Thuy Vy

Currently, there are no scientific studies or publications on the use of natural alkaline mineral water causing kidney stones.

Whether to use natural alkaline mineral water or artificial alkaline water depends on the financial conditions of your family. If you have the opportunity to use natural alkaline mineral water, you should use it. If you cannot use it for some reason, you can also choose artificial alkaline water.

However, we should note that not all artificial alkaline water meets the standards. For example, if the water source is not clean, there will not be a good artificial alkaline water source. Moreover, it depends on the condition of the water supply line, the installation related to engineering…

Therefore, advice from the doctor is that you should find out at these service providers to see if it is suitable for your plan, living conditions, living environment or not.


2.Does natural alkaline mineral water “leave” residues, harmful to health?

As far as I know, natural alkaline mineral water is bottled right at the mineral source without any treatment technology. If so, will the residues be left out, harmful to health? What criteria should be acknowledged of the water’s safety ? (Dang Dinh Thoai – Thoainh11…

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Hello Dinh Thoai,

In case you choose natural alkaline mineral water, it should be based on the following criteria:

– Based on manufacturer’s brand.

– Evaluation through after-sales services.

– Meet the criteria of the state management agencies prescribed.

This is about the senses. When choosing products based on these criteria, you will feel secure to use.

Many people are concerned that bottled natural alkaline mineral water, bottled at the source, will exist or leave out residues and bacteria for health because it is drilled deep underground. However, to meet quality standards, this water also has important technical criteria:

– Environmental factors: The groundwater extraction area must be far from polluted water, including above and below the ground. Generally, manufacturers required to carry out a lot of surveys and experiments to ensure that the exploited source meet the standards of food safety and hygiene as prescribed by the regulatory agencies.

– Technological factors: The technological process should kill bacteria, remove impurities (if any), yet shouldn’t interfere to change the natural ingredients, mineral and electrolyte complexes, such as bicarbonate, pH is available in natural alkaline mineral water.

A prestigious manufacturer in the market signifies its quality is controlled and registered. These are important criteria to help you choose safe and quality natural alkaline mineral water.

3.Does natural alkaline mineral water help suppress the harmful effects of hot spicy food?

I like hot spicy food, sometimes drink alcohol for socializing purpose, and I do smoke. I found out that these foods increase acidity and it is true that when I eat it, I have a painful feeling in my stomach.

– Would adding alkaline foods cover the harmful effects of acid?

– Having a lot of hot spicy food and then drink alkaline mineral water, is it effective, or do I have to use it as often as plain water? (Bao Tien – quachtien…

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Hello Bao Tien,

Prevention is better than cure. You eat spicy food, drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes and now have gastrointestinal symptoms. Thus, you already know the causes of this condition, you must change it now by:

– Reduce hot spicy food. Since you eat spicy food, it stimulates the secretion of more acid than usual, inhibit the secretion of mucus, so it does not protect the stomach lining. The food you eat rub against the stomach lining and cause harm, as your condition has shown clinical symptoms. You can reduce 50% at first and then continue to decrease gradually.

Quitting smoking is essential. Because smoking not only damages the lungs but also damages many other organs, especially the stomach. Tobacco contains many toxins. These substances will enter the body through the circulatory system to the stomach, increase the secretion of gastric juice, affect the cells of the stomach lining and cause inflammation.

In addition, you can also gradually reduce the amount of alcohol when receiving guests.

You cannot use alkaline foods to offset the harmful effects of acids. Your stomach is already overloaded then adding more foods to “press” the acid is not recommended. The stomach is not a bag, pour in acids and alkalis to neutralize. When you have alkaline foods, the body still has to metabolize, the stomach is overloaded. Therefore, you need to reduce acidic foods and replace them with alkaline foods.

Đây là phòng bệnh và nên thực hành để giúp chữa lành các tổn thương ở dạ dày. Hiện tại, biện pháp cấp thời, bạn có thể sử dụng nước khoáng kiềm thiên nhiên, vì dạ dày của bạn đang có vấn đề nên khả năng chuyển hóa, hấp thu các chất dinh dưỡng cũng bị ảnh hưởng tương đối nhiều.

People with such a stomach condition will face risks such as vitamin deficiency, especially vitamin B group (especially B12), lack of amino acids and quite a lot of minerals that are essential for gastric mucosa to function properly. effective as calcium – involved in cellular metabolism, potassium, magnesium and manganese.

Therefore, using natural alkaline mineral water provides you with some electrolytes, and alkaline pH also helps partially. You can drink natural alkaline mineral water instead of plain water daily. Moreover, it should be emphasized that this is not a treatment solution, not a radical solution, but a support.

4.How to drink natural alkaline mineral water appropriately?

Doctor, is there any proper way to drink alkaline mineral water in regard to the point of time and the amount? (Pham Anh Tuan)

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Dear Anh Tuan,

It seems that you are misunderstanding natural alkaline mineral water as a medicine, so you ask the question of the best dose and time to drink it.

Compared with normal drinking water, natural alkaline mineral water has good effects on health, especially supporting people with gastrointestinal diseases. So you can drink as usual. The principle is to drink water regularly, drink during the day, limit drinking water before going to bed, as the body will have to filter, produce urine and affect your sleep.

As recommended, we should drink 2-3 liters of water a day. It is best to take 1-2 hours apart each time, do not let the time between 2 drinks be too far apart, such as after 3 hours. In addition, limit drinking water during meals, for we already have some water from food. If you drink water with meals, it will dilute the gastric juice, affecting the digestive process.

5.Should alkaline mineral water be used to mix milk, powder, and porridge for children?

My baby is in weaning period, normally I still use this alkaline mineral water to boil powder, cook porridge for my baby, is that okay? Should children use alkaline mineral water? Thank you doctor. (Dinh Ngoc – HCMC)

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

You can use alkaline mineral water to cook porridge, mix powder. For making milk, you can use normal boiled water, let it cool to about 40 degrees Celsius, it will be best and most suitable. Although it is bottled water, you should also boil it. The reason is because of the long time or their negligence in the process of storage (opened, or aired) making the water no longer clean. For children, it is necessary to ensure food hygiene and safety. It is best to boil the water.

6.As a fitness trainer, how much water should I have?

I am a fitness trainer. How much water do I need to drink for such a job? Because I consulted many places and received different answers so I was so confused. I want to change to natural alkaline mineral water, is that possible? Does this type of water help people who practice intense sports like me? (Vo Hoang Hiep – Lam Dong)

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Dear Hoang Hiep,

For people who are physically active and robust, it is necessary to increase the amount of water. Averagely, we drink about 2-3 liters of water, depending on the individual. If we calculate by weight, we will drink 40-50ml/kg. That is for people who are physically active with light intensity, living in normal environmental and temperature conditions.

In your case, if you are physically active, you need to increase your water intake depending on your physical activity level. The amount of water can be increased by about 30% from the normal level. In addition, the amount of water taken in must be compatible with the amount of sweat lost, compatible with the amount of water lost through breathing. Because when you do more physical activity, your breath will increase, water will be lost Thread your breath, then rehydration is essential.

The sign that you have drunk enough water is light yellow urine, clear as usual. In case there is only little urine, its color is dark or you feel thirsty, uncomfortable, dried skin … these are signs that you have not rehydrated enough.

You can use natural alkaline mineral water as the question mentioned. For those who work out, vigorous exercise consume more energy, require more minerals, vitamins, and electrolytes. Through perspiration, you lose a lot of electrolytes, such as sodium and other minerals. Therefore, you can compensate with mineral water to help the body replenish minerals and electrolytes, which will also be good for the muscles.

As you can see, one of the experiences of heavy physical workers or activities that consume a lot of energy, drinking sugar salt water help people feel more comfortable than just drinking sugar water.

In addition, the trainer need to exercise a lot, which produce free radicals, which is an acidic environment. Therefore, using water with alkaline pH will be better, helping our muscles recover quickly, neutralize free radicals, then at the same time drink a lot of water so as to eliminate toxins in the process of metabolism and muscle movement of a heavy body.

7.Why does drinking water make us feel heavy and uncomfortable in the stomach?

Doctor would you please answer me, I don’t understand why every time I drink water, I feel heavy and uncomfortable in my stomach. Is it because I don’t drink water properly? Could you please help me point out what are the common mistakes when we drink water so that I can avoid? (Le Xuan Dung – Ho Chi Minh City)

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Hello Xuan Dung,

If you drink water and have a feeling of heaviness and discomfort in your stomach, it is true that you need to review your habits for the following mistakes:

The first and foremost mistake, you only drink when you feel thirsty, then have a lot to satisfy your thirst. The right way to drink water is to drink it regularly. Drink water every 1-2 hours, whether you feel thirsty or not. Because this feeling of thirst depends on the identification of each person, some people are very sensitive, just a little thirst is felt immediately. But there are people who are not so sensitive, that is the elderly, children, people who take drugs with side effects of central nervous system depression …

The second mistake is drinking too much water at once. About the amount of water, each time we drink about 100-200ml. If we drink more, giving a sudden amount of water will stretch the stomach, stimulate the vagus nerve, this will create unpleasant reflexes such as fatigue, feeling like overwhelmed, slightly suffocated… Sudden distension of the stomach also pushes on the diaphragm, making you feel tight in the upper abdomen.

The third mistake is drinking carbonated and soft drinks when thirsty.

– The fourth mistake is to drink water immediately after returning from being out in the sun or doing heavy physical work. At this time, not only drink a large amount of water, but also use very cold ice. This also disturbs the vagus nerve, creating the aforementioned discomfort. Therefore, we need to pay attention that, we need to drink water slowly, drink water at ambient temperature, should not drink hot or cold water, and should not drink soft drinks, carbonated water. You can completely use mineral water, normal filtered water, add a little salt to make you more comfortable.

8.Warning signs that the body is too acidic?

What are the signs of acidic overage, Doctor? Lately, I’ve been craving for water, my mouth is dry and my face has pimples. My friend said it may due to acid excess. What do I need to do to be back to balance, Doctor? What should be concerned in my diet? (Nguyen Thi Hoa – hoanguyen34…

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Hello Hoa,

In fact, it is very difficult for us to recognize the signs of excess acidity, because it is so vague. Immediately recognizable symptoms such as acidosis will often prompt us to go to the hospital. Therefore, if the body has warning signs, it is definitely necessary to go to the doctor and do some tests to diagnose whether there is an excess of acid, or an imbalance of acid-base in the body. Normally, your doctor will give you a blood pH test.

As in your case, if you have symptoms of thirst for water, dry mouth, it is best to see a doctor to be prescribed tests. One of the important tests is the blood sugar test. If a person feels thirsty all the time even after drinking enough water, it is definitely worth checking for a blood sugar disorder.

Currently, if you still have a lot of acne and are also thirsty, you need to review whether you really drink enough water, the right type of water or drink the right water, compatible with the body’s water needs or not. If it is lacking, you must take a supplement.

On the other hand, acne also has many causes. The first is due to skin diseases. The second is because we use cosmetic chemicals. The third is due to an unbalanced and reasonable diet. Usually people consume too much fat, including a lot of fried foods, processed and industrial foods, too much protein of animal origin, too much sugar, salt, but very little of vegetables… acnes would appear more often.

Therefore, it is necessary to adjust the diet. If you are prone to acne, choose alkaline foods such as vegetables and fruits. In which, green, yellow, orange, purple vegetables … are good because they contain a lot of Beta-carotene – a precursor of vitamin A that plays an important role in epithelial cells in the skin, as also contain antioxidants, oxidize. For example, if you eat purple vegetables, you will be provided with a lot of anthocyanins antioxidants that help protect cells, including skin, help improve sebum secretion and create acne.

Fruits should be chosen neutral, less sweet, contained vitamin C therefore prioritize plums, guava, oranges, grapefruits as well as drink lemon juice with less sugar. Do not drink soft drinks, reduce coffee … This would help acne disappear. Besides, you can completely use alkaline mineral water.

9.Does storing water in the refrigerator lose nutrients?

Does storing water in the refrigerator lose the nutrients in the water? I like to drink cold water, so I keep it in the fridge. However, my husband said, in the long run it loses the minerals that water has. (Chau Thi Quy Quychau56…

Specialist Dr.2 Do Thi Ngoc Diep replied:

Bottled, refrigerated water help lower the temperature of the water a bit, if you have a preference for cool water, you can completely use it. In addition, if you have “accidentally” opened the bottle of water, storing cold water will prevent bacteria from growing as quickly as the outside environment. If the bottle is still intact and stored in the refrigerator, this should not affect the quality of the water.

If you use alkaline pH water that added some minerals, this will not affect the water storage temperature at all. So you can safely use it.

Water plays a particularly important role in human health. This is the solvent for the chemical reactions in the body to work perfectly, helping to maintain homeostasis and maintain body functions. Water is also the solvent to help the metabolism of nutrients run smoothly.

Water also provides us with the most favorable conditions to protect cells, in addition to helping to regulate body temperature, maintain respiratory functions, by providing a film coating to help the lungs operate effectively, meanwhile supporting the pericardium and joint membranes to work better.

According to recommendations, our daily water needs should be met in kilograms of 40-50ml/kg for adults. As such, normally required 2-3 liters of water per day. We should drink water regularly, once every 1-2 hours. Drink 100-200ml of water each time.

Choosing safe, hygienic water with added minerals, if possible, the exploitation of natural sources is very good for health. For people with diseases related to the digestive tract, if they have been diagnosed and treated well, priority should be given to choose alkaline pH water with natural minerals to better support the treatment process. Certainly, each of us needs to ensure safety and hygiene when choosing the types of water to provide for the body every day.
