Waiakea Hawaiian Bottled Water is a natural alkaline water, that is originated from the melting snow and rain coming from the active volcano peak of Mauna Loa. The water is filtered through the porous lava, which enhances the minerals, turning it into a natural alkaline, and giving the water a remarkably delicious taste. This water has a special composition of minerals an pH, that is full of the electrolytes of sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. It also has just the right amount of silica, about 30 mg., which is perfect for giving a soft and silky mouthfeel. Besides silica has been proven, through scientific studies, that consuming just 10 mg. of silica per day will lower the chances of Alzheimer’s disease by 11 percent. This water was awarded the “carbon neutral certification”, making Waiakea the first American bottled water company to be awarded this prize.
