There a number of reasons for why someone might choose to drink bottled water over what comes out of the tap at their home. They might believe that bottled water tastes better or is of better quality. They might also question whether what is coming out of their tap is truly safe. However, not all bottled water is the same. Not all bottled water comes from where people would think it originates, for instance. Some bottled water is labeled as “Alkaline Water” as one example when what it is really just regular tap water that has been manufactured to increase its pH level.
For someone that wants real “Alkaline Water“, one of the best choices is Waiakea Water. This bottled water brand is naturally alkaline because it comes from water that has been naturally filtered by Mauna Loa, the volcanic mountain in Hawaii. The water doesn’t come out of water that has sat in an aquifer but instead has continuously moved down through volcanic rock. As a result, its pH is 8.2 which improves peoples health in a number of ways. One medical journal, the Annals of Otology Rhinology, and Laryngology published research showing that this level of alkalinity is optimal as it helps to reduce the symptoms of acid reflux.
Ryan Emmons is the founder of Waiakea and is its chief executive officer. He discovered the water source he uses for his company when he was visiting his uncle’s home while he was still in college. After graduating in 2012 he started Waiakea using this water source he had discovered which he said was the best tasting water he had ever had. He also liked how it was full of minerals such as calcium and magnesium naturally occurring in it.
Today Waiakea Water is sold all over the United States and is also available online through this company’s websites. It is sold at Whole Foods and other national grocery store chains. As Ryan Emmons wants to be as environmentally as possible they ship the water from Hawaii to the mainland using ecologically responsible ways and find other ways to offset the carbon emissions generated.
