Waiakea Water is a powerhouse bottled water company stationed on the big island of Hawaii. Introduced to the global market back in 2012, Waiakea Water is sourced from an aquifer located at the base of Mauna Loa. The aquifer produces water naturally filtered through miles of volcanic rock. The filtration not only makes the water 100% alkaline but infuses it with natural vitamins and minerals. From a health perspective it is some of the healthiest water one can drink. This is a big plus for Waiakea because bottled water is highly focused on health aspects.
Bottled water circumvented tap years ago. One of the chief reasons people replaced purchased water for the working water out of every faucet in their house was based on health. Tap water is not filtered, it is not purified, and it also contains chemicals like fluoride. As society began to lean more and more towards healthier living in the 90s the popularity of bottle water began to grow. Now it is a market worth ten billion dollars. Every company selling bottled water has to work hard to stand out because they are all selling the exact same product. One way to that it to offer health advancing quality. Drinking water that actually makes your body healthier.
A recent trend in the health considerations of water is pH balance. pH refers to the acidity in the water. Water with too much acidity is not healthy for you. Alkaline water helps the body retain balance and the big movement in the bottled water world is finding brands that respect pH. Luckily for volcanic water benefits their chief quality is 100% alkaline. Waiakea is one of the only brands out there that offers complete pH balance in its water. This makes it very health to drink and makes it stand out from the competition.
The company came from the discovery of one Ryan Emmons, a frequent vacationer of Hawaii. His family owned property with access to the Mauna Loa aquifer. Emmons noticed that the aquifer water was special, and being a health advocate himself he decided to share his find with the world.
