Nature’s Perfect Water: Waiakea Water

Imagine if there were a perfect water available to support the body and help maintain optimal hydration and pH levels? Wouldn’t that water be worth a second look? Now, there is the perfect water available for the human body. The name of the water is Waiakea. CEO and founder of Waiakea Water, Ryan Emmons started the company in 2012 after visiting his uncle’s property. He tasted the pure water that runs off the Mauna Loa volcano and wished to share the Hawaii volcanic water with the world.

Mr. Emmons is very eco friendly, so Waiakea Water was started with that thought in mind. The company recieved the first carbon neutral rating ever for a beverage company. Waiakea Water is packaged in plastic bottles that will compost in a fraction of the time it takes traditional packaging with 85% less manufacturing time. Even the water is a highly renewable resource as it rains in the Mauna Loa region 360 days a year. The water is naturally filtered through 14,000 feet of volcanic rock before it is bottled.

So in addition to being very eco conscious, Waiakea Water is very good for human consumption. The Waiakea Water pH rate is slightly alkaline at 8.2%, which is what the body needs to help aid in neutralizing acid. It has been found, over time, that the volcanic water has benefits to those suffering from ulcers and digestion issues such as GERD or heartburn. The water also contains a daily dose of Silica, which has been found beneficial to slow the signs of aging and decreases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.

In addition to the “zero” carbon footprint on the earth and health benefits of the water, Waiakea Water gives back in a big way. The company donates water for every liter purchased to the rural towns in Africa. Waiakea has been partnering with Pump Aid to bring wells and extra water to rural third world towns that have no immediate water. To read more about Waiakea Water, please click here.
