Alkalinity and Health
Among many of the benefits of drinking water with higher levels of alkaline is the reduction of acid reflex. Bottled water with a degree of 8.2 pH or alkalinity, like Hawaii volcanic water bottled by Waiakea Water, can provide 32.4 milligrams of silica, which is more than the recommended daily value (RDV) of silica. Recent research shows that giving the body the RDV of silica can significantly lower the chances of Alzheimer’s. Other study showed those people who replenished their bodies with water that is high er in pH like Waiakea water ph found in Waiakea hawaii volcanic water stabilize their system against heartburn and acid reflux. Bottled water with lower levels of ph says 1-7, do not have the healthy benefits of fighting against acid reflux as water with higher ph level like Waiakea Volcanic Water of ph level 8.2.
Waiakea water can help reduce the chances of acid reflux and heartburn, while at the same time provide RDV of silica needed for the bodies proper functioning, but when deficit in the body can lead to long-term illnesses like Alzheimer’s. Hydration of the boy is very important, and this is another benefit of drinking water with a higher ph level like Waiakea Water.
Recent research has shown volcanic water benefits and when recommended can lead to a better acid-base equilibrium over drinking regular tap water. Waiakea Water contains sufficient electrolytes for the bodies proper function.
A New Plastic for the Future of Conservation
Waiakea Water adds benefit in the process in which they make their containers. Waiakea Water plastic takes about 15 years to disintegrate, whereas a regular plastic bottle may take as long as 1500 years. Using a proprietary plastic bottle and partnering with TimePlast, the plastic will dissolve 97% faster than ordinary plastic substances. Using better plastics is a significant reduction in Waiakea Water’s carbon footprint.
Awards and Impact
Waiakea Water has been the recipient of many awards since their founding. In 2015 Waiakea Waters received more awards than any other bottled water brand. Hermes Creative Awards (2017), FABI Food & Beverage Award (2015), Best in Biz (2016), World Beverage Innovation (2016), Dujour (2016), Berkely Spring (2016).
Lastly, Waiakea Water, working with emission consultants CarbonNeutral and Ecometrica have reduces their product and business carbon impact to net zero.
