ABOUT OUR WATER
With a pH of 8 and Alkalinity of 198 ppm, our natural mineral water is a rare and precious resource. Deep sourced natural artesian water that is both alkaline and mineralized seldom exists in Canada or for that matter anywhere else in the world (see the benefits of Alkaline Mineral water here: Health Attributes of Alkaline Water). Most spring or mineral water that has been bottled and brought to market is obtained from shallow surface sources that can be subject to environmental contamination. These sources are rarely both alkaline and mineralized. Water analysis results show that our natural mineral water is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese and bicarbonates. It is perfectly balanced in both alkaline and mineral content.
A natural source of Electrolytes, our mineral water has Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) content of 280 ppm. This classifies it as a Natural Mineral Water by both Canadian and USA water standards. The TDS in the water is comprised of minerals that would be expected from a natural aquifer water source. All the minerals are regarded as necessary for healthy living and are present in varied quantities.
The rich mineral replenishing content of our natural mineral water is attracting more and more health-conscious consumers because it refreshes and energizes them.
Electrolytes are vital to one’s health and survival. They are positively and negatively charged ions that are formed when minerals or other salts dissolve and separate in water. Since Electrolytes carry a charge, they can conduct an electrical current in water.
This characteristic of Electrolytes is important because the current enables Electrolytes to regulate how and where fluids are distributed throughout the body. They include potassium, calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate, to name a few. The more mineral content there is in the water, the more Electrolytes there are.
Electrolytes transport nutrients into cells and wastes out of them. The difference in electrical balance inside and outside of cells also allows for transmission of nerve impulses, contraction or relaxation of muscles, blood pressure control, and proper gland functioning. In addition, the presence of electrolytes determines the acidity or pH of some fluids, especially blood. On the right, is a list of our water minerals and the benefits of them in the human body.
