A pH below 7.0 is acidic. A pH above 7.0 is alkaline. Good things to know, but what does it all mean for your health and longevity? This week we talk with Ralph McRae from Leading Brands, the company behind Happy Water. Happy water is an alkaline water which combines spring water with mineral water.
