Did you know that In the U.S., the average person drinks about 31.8 gallons of
bottled water each year?
And that Bottled water is projected to surpass soda as the No. 1 packaged beverage in the U.S. by the end of 2016, according to the International Bottled Water Association.
Athletes and celebrities, especially, are forgoing typical bottled water, and looking for healthier water, to go along with their alkaline diets. Which give them a balanced body pH, and results in greater energy, more restful sleep, improved digestion and fewer colds according to some medical authorities.
Dr. Jamie Koufman, an internationally renowned expert on reflux, and researcher Dr. Nikki Johnston, studied how alkaline water destroys pepsin, a stomach enzyme that when activated by acid causes painful reflux symptoms that can lead to cancer. According to the findings published in the Annals of Otology, Rhinology & Laryngology (July 2012), natural artesian alkaline water with an 8.8 pH instantaneously inactivated human pepsin in laboratory studies. Ordinary tap and bottled waters had no such effect. And thus, the idea for Akaline88 was born!
Alkaline88, the “5 Hour Energy®” of the alkaline water industry, is favored by Brande Roderick and Tim Tebow, achieves its 8.8 pH level through a state-of-the-art, completely chemical-free scientific process.
Alkaline88 has no calories, no added sugar, artificial coloring or any preservatives. It is made via a state-of-the-art Electrochemically Activated Water (ECA) system, that creates the 8.8 pH drinking water WITHOUT the use of any chemicals. The ECA process uses specialized electronic cells coated with a variety of rare earth minerals to produce scientifically engineered water. Then they add 84 trace Himalayan minerals, considered to be the best in the world. Then they add natural electrolytes. What this all means is you get an amazing tasting water! Seriously, it is like tasting mountain stream water- pure, crisp and refreshing. Plus, Alkaline88 is available in sizes that are not available from its competitors, like 1 and 3 liter sizes, but are in high demand by consumers.
And it's boast of being a 5 hour energy producer is true. Miss Grace drank some last week before dance class, then went to dance class, and drank some during breaks. She came out of the class, much less tired than normal. And when she drank more of the bottle after class, she was quickly revived! As Irish Dance is a form of extreme cardio, this was great to see how well Alkaline88 works for her!
My mother has been having issues post gastro-surgery in October and fighting severe reflux. So we were also interested to see how the water worked for her. I'm happy to report that it worked great! When drinking Alkaline88 she had less reflux, and was able to keep more food down! Yeah!
The larger size bottles have been a huge hit with everyone, especially the convenient carry handle for the 3 liter version! This way it is easy to pull the chilled water out of the fridge one handed! Miss Grace loves the one liter bottles, with the pop tops! The one liter bottles would be perfect for taking with you to any outdoor activity, as they can function as a hand weight, and provide you with adequate hydration and more! Just in time for that last minute push before swimsuit season hits too!
Since Alkaline88 water came on the market, they have obtained national distribution in over 20,000 stores in 50 states, including 37 of the top 75 retailers nationwide, like Albertsons, Safeway, Kroger, 7-Eleven,Whole Foods Market, Associated Food Stores, SuperValu and HEB.
We LOVE this water and it's health benefits, and once you try it, you'll understand why and love it too!
