Bottled water is increasingly becoming a popular alternative to drinking tap water. Bottled water is safer to drink, it tastes better, it’s easily accessible, and its quality is better than tap water. Yet, there are many differences between the different brands of bottled water, especially when it comes to health benefits. Some brands of bottled water are healthier than other brands. One of the more healthier brands of bottled water is Waiakea, and what makes it healthier than other brands is its alkalinity.
Many brands of bottled water that advertise as being alkaline water are given its pH balance through a machine. Waiakea’s naturally alkaline water comes from the Mauna Loa volcano area and is filtered through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock. The pH balance works on a scale of one through 14. A healthy pH balance for the body to ward off diseases is 7.4. A number below 5.5 is too acidic for the body and can have harmful side effects over the long-term. A higher number means the water is too alkaline, which can also have negative side effects. Waiakea’s water pH balance of 8.2 is a healthy level for the body.
Waiakea water was created by its founder and CEO Ryan Emmons, who was looking for a sustainable source of healthy and good tasting water. He found that source near his uncle’s home at the base of Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii. There is a constant supply of water because it rains up to 360 days a year in this area. The natural filtration process that Waiakea’s water goes through packs it with minerals and provides it with a neutral alkaline balance.
Waiakea is an eco-friendly company that works with emission consultants to help reduce the company’s negative environmental impact. The company also uses sustainable packaging that uses less energy and water to manufacture, and they are involved in reforestation initiatives in Hawaii. Through their environmental initiatives and great tasting Hawaiian volcanic water, Waiakea has become one of the most awarded bottled water company’s in North America.
