In today’s world, more consumers are reaching for bottled water as part of their daily shopping habits. Be that because of convenience, taste, quality, or any number of other factors, bottled water is generally considered a superior alternative to tap water. However, not all bottled waters are created equal, and Waiakea Water is set to surpass them all.
Waiakea Water is the brainchild of Ryan Emmons, the CEO and founder of the company. During his time growing up in Hawaii, he couldn’t help but notice the superb quality of the Hawaii volcanic water that he found at the base of the Mauna Loa volcano near his Uncle’s home. He felt it was the best water he had ever tasted, and he was eager to share it with the world.
Along with its outstanding taste, this volcanic water has several health benefits that most people don’t think about getting from their drinking water. It is naturally alkaline (coming it in around 8.2 on the ph scale), which can help the body to process and recover from the amount of acid it is typically exposed to on a daily basis via other foods and drinks. The alkalinity of the water has also been shown to help fight off some of the effects of acid reflux and heartburn over time. Aside from its naturally higher ph, Waiakea Water also contains an average of 32.4 milligrams of silica, which surpasses the recommended daily value of 30 milligrams, and over time, has been shown to aid in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s.
The benefits of Waiakea Water don’t stop within the human body, their environmental efforts are also noteworthy. To begin with, coming from an area of Hawaii that receives rain an average of 360 out of 365 days a year, Waiakea water is incredibly sustainable. The company then goes on to use 100 percent rPET bottles, which require 85 percent less energy to produce than non rPET bottles, and they also use 90 percent less water in their manufacturing process than most bottled water companies.
All in all, Waiakea Water is a highly awarded company on the rise, and the sky is the limit.
