Water is an essential liquid for our body’s nutrients. The type of water that you choose to put inside your body is especially critical since most water we drink nowadays is processed and purchased in bottles. For the last several years, people have been deciding whether to drink tap water and to filter it separately or to purchase bottled water straight from the store that is already filtered at a plant. The price of bottled water almost matches that for soft drinks and other processed specialty drinks which was not the case 40-50 years ago. In a January 2018 article by Stephen Ray, he explores one such bottled water maker, Waiakea Water. We will discuss his article but first, a few words about Waiakea Water.
Waiakea, Inc. is a well-known wholesaler of the Hawaii Volcanic Water brand. Waiakea boasts being one of the healthiest premium waters in the world as it contains essential healthy minerals, electrolytes, and natural alkaline. Waiakea water pH is listed as high as 8.8 which ranks high among premium waters. The founders report that their water is also on a highly sustainable, charitable and ethical platform.
Waiakea has also claimed many awards during the last several years. They have picked up awards from the National Restaurant Association, BevStar, World Beverage Innovation Awards and Best in Biz Award. They have been proudly featured in such media outlets as Good Morning America, Forbes, People Magazine, and Beverage World. Below, we will explore Stephen Ray’s article in more detail.
Stephen starts out by letting others know that people must research the different bottled waters to ensure that their claims are valid. He warns that purchasers should research that the source that the bottled water company claims is actually true. Stephen assures that Waiakea Water’s claims are all true and come from the quality source that it claims. He also states that this is evident due to the pH data of Waiakea’s water which is beneficial to our health. With a pH range of 8.2-8.8, the water is away from the lower acidic values and right in line with providing benefits to the human body.
The Waiakea Water brand is reminiscent of the Hawaii home base in that it brings a magical feeling coming from the Mauna Loa volcano which is one of the purest environments on earth.
