Essentia Water The no. 1 selling brand in the natural store channel


My New Years resolution was to be healthier! One of the things I have been trying to do is drink more water. I can honestly say that I now drink more water than I drink anything else. I was quite thrilled to receive Essentia Water to facilitate this feature.  It has a high pH of 9.5 and a blend of electrolytes, which means fast permeation into the body for optimum alkaline health benefits. But, what I like best is that it really does taste great! I can honestly say it is great tasting water.

Here are some more facts:

Most bottled waters have a pH factor of 7.0, which is neutral. Most human bodies are relatively
Health Benefit more acidic from an ideal pH of 7 due to factors like stress, diet and harmful environmental
contaminants. Over time, a high level of acidity can result in a loss of bone density, muscle
strength, and can also negatively impact critical organs such as the kidneys.
Consuming an optimally alkaline, high-pH water helps to neutralize the body’s ongoing acidic
condition and restore it to a more balanced state. Conventional thinking in the health and
wellness community is that disease and infection cannot live in an alkaline environment.

Essentia Difference is that  Essentia removes acidic water clusters and increases the alkaline earth minerals, resulting in an optimally higher pH of 9.5. Essentia’s IST allows for charged electrolytes, easy absorption and,
therefore, optimal hydration.

Essentia has been shown in a clinical pilot study to contribute to rapid rehydration of firefighters
under extreme physical exertion and harsh environmental conditions.
