Distilled & purified water are devoid of minerals and are acidic. They steal the minerals from your body. Alkaline water is the other way around. It provides minerals to the body and helps balance your body's PH level.

Alkaline water is not better than other drinking water.It's a just promotion of bussiness.Body have its own mechanism to maintain the acid-base equilibrium.
