An online article recently addressed the issue of health benefits as they pertain to different brands of bottled water. More specifically, the article questioned whether the water used for these brands was actually suited to the human body’s natural pH. Although many brands of bottled water might fall under the heading of being alkaline, it does not necessarily mean the water has a pH level attuned to the body’s own. In fact, in order to obtain the best health benefits from bottled water the pH level should be close to 7.4.
In close examination, the Waiakea brand of bottled water stood out as having a pH level more in sync with that found in the human body. Ranging between 7.6 and 8.2, the Waiakea water pH level allows for better absorption into the cells. The absorption process also allows the cells to be nourished by the minerals this particular brand of water is enriched with. This Hawaii volcanic water becomes imbued with calcium, magnesium, silica and potassium as it travels through many layers of volcanic rock, which also makes the water naturally alkaline.
As someone who had always enjoyed Hawaii’s pristine environment and fresh water, founder and CEO of Waiakea water Ryan Emmons, decided to use the water’s own positive aspects in its promotion. In order to maintain the water’s pure state as well as help preserve the natural resources on the planet, Ryan Emmons chose to take a different approach to the way the water was bottled. This process not only uses significantly less energy in its operation, it also helps preserve the planet’s resources by lowering the release of carbon emissions by 90 percent.
The volcanic water benefits found in the Waiakea brand are a direct result from the environment through which the water is obtained. The small town of Hilo sits in close proximity to Hawaii’s Mauna Loa volcano, which is responsible for the numerous underground layers of volcanic rock. The water used for this brand goes through a natural filtration process as it passes through more than 14,000 feet of porous rock, which also enriches it with many beneficial electrolytes.
