Naturally Alkaline Water: Bottled in Hawaii
Located just outside the quiet town of Hilo and surrounded by rich, bio-diverse forest preserves, a deep well source sits at the eastern base of the Mauna Loa volcano, one of the purest environments on Earth. There, water slowly filters through volcanic rock and emerges naturally alkaline and filled with essential minerals.
What is Alkaline Water?
Alkaline water is any water that falls anywhere on the pH scale above 7. The pH level is a measurement of how acidic or alkaline a substance is on a scale of 0-14.
- Acidic is anywhere between 0 and 6.9
- Neutral is 7 - This is where regular drinking water is on the scale
- Alkaline is anywhere from 7.1 to 14
Alkaline water can be artificially created, or occur naturally. For more information, read The Difference Between Artificial & Naturally Alkaline Water.
Should You Drink Bottled Alkaline Water?
The short answer - yes - but it depends on how the water became alkaline. Contrary to popular belief, a water with a high pH does not equate to a healthful alkaline water. More likely than not, that pH was achieved through artificial processes and has very few of the minerals your body actually needs. That’s where Waiākea is different. Our naturally alkaline water flows down the Mauna Loa volcano and through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock before exiting at its source. As it passes through the lava rock, the water is filtered to a degree that is almost incomparable to other filtration processes. It is during this process that Waiākea picks up minerals that give it its signature, natural alkalinity as well as a unique tasting profile.
