The alkalinity of the water you choose to drink can result in big effects on your health. 7 pH is neutral in regards to alkalinity. Numbers above that are increasingly alkaline while lesser numbers are increasingly acidic. Research published in a number of medical journals show that it’s wise to choose alkaline bottled water in order to maintain or improve overall health.
Waiakea is a bottled water company which sources its water from Hawaii’s Big Island. It comes from water that has been naturally filtered by the world’s biggest volcano, Mauna Loa. This naturally filtered water is chock-full of minerals and Waiakea Water’s pH is 8.8. This is great for health as it helps bodies in a number of ways. It hydrates the body much better than tap water or other brands of bottled water and is especially good for those who have heartburn or acidic reflux. It helps to neutralize stomach acids as it is a bicarbonate. It works the same way to neutralize pepsin in the same way that Alka-Seltzer does.
This brand was founded by Ryan Emmons. He lived in California and was going to college when he was invited to go on vacation at his uncle’s home in Hawaii. While there he saw a water source and when he tried it he decided it was the best water he had ever tasted. Once he graduated he decided to build a company built on supplying this water to people across the United States. He said that the volcanic water benefits beyond taste sealed the deal for him and he was convinced to follow his dreams.
The Waiakea Water pH, minerals, and taste are just a few of the reasons to buy this brand of water. Other reasons include it being the first in the industry to be certified as CarbonNeutral. Waiakea Water is bottled in 100% RPET bottles. Using this type of bottle results in using 85% less energy to manufacture them. Another benefit is that this is a socially responsible company that donates 650 liters of water to Africa for every bottle of water that it sells.
