The pH level of the water you drink is critical. the pH scale goes from 0 to 14 with 0 being the most acidic, 14 being the most alkaline, and 7 being neutral. The body works its best when the alkalinity is at 7.4. Most brands of water don’t help get to 7.4 because their water is somewhere in the range of 4-7. One of the unique brands of water that does help get the body to pH 7.4 is Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water. It is an average pH in each bottle of 8.8 which makes it a fantastic antioxidant and healthy source of water.
Another way that the alkalinity of Waiakea Water helps the body is by neutralizing stomach acid. This helps people not develop ulcers. This water is also a natural bicarbonate which means it counteracts pepsin. This can also help with such conditions as acid reflux and keep the body well hydrated. The Journal of the International Society of Sports Medicine once published a research paper which indicated that people who drank alkaline water were better hydrated than those who stuck to drinking tap water.
As a naturally sourced Hawaii volcanic water, Waiakea Water is rich in minerals as well. Water falls on the Big Island’s Mauna Loa every day of the year excepting five days on average. This water flows down through the volcano and at the bottom it is collected and bottled. As Mauna Loa is 33,000 feet high the water flows through a lot of volcanic rock, picking up valuable minerals such as calcium and magnesium.
Many national publications have written about Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water. Among these are Environmental Leader, Forbes, Organic Authority, Good Morning America, People, and others. They have also won numerous awards over the years which has no doubt helped them become a company that grew 4200% in its first three years. Waiakea Water can now be found in many retail establishments including among others Albertsons, Whole Foods, Gold’s Gyms, Wawa, Hi-Health, Bristol Farms, and Central Markets. There are also many other locations you can buy this water in more than 30 states across the nation.
