· Bottled by Mountain Valley. This is considered America’s finest spring water and many people consider it America’s “Evian”.
· pH of 7.8
This is a very alkaline pH for most drinking waters. The pH scale is from 0 to 14. 1to 6.9 is acidic, 7 is neutral, and 7.1 to 14 is alkaline. Most waters are all acidic except for Fiji, Evian, and Mountain Valley. Tap water is neutral but cheap additives are added to change its pH and mask the chlorine and other toxins.
· High in Calcium, Magnesium, and many Trace Minerals
The presence of these alkaline minerals is the reason why the pH is higher and it is so nourishing to the body. It has a small amount of naturally occurring fluoride (teeth) and is low in sodium.
· From a true spring in Hot Springs, Arkansas
Bottled for over 100 years and known nationally for its health improving qualities. It takes an estimated 3,500 years to create this water from a rain drop that travels down the mountain all the way into the aquifer and all the way back up the mountain through a spring. This is how all the different minerals are collected in the water.
· Drinking alkaline water is beneficial for supporting the body’s pH
Just as we teach our customers that Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar and Lemon Juice are both ways to help our body’s pH, drinking water is also an important way to shift the blood to be more alkaline. The blood in the body ranges from a pH of 7.35 to 7.45. Those with a higher blood pH of 7.45 have the capacity to carry 60% more oxygen. That is important for all basic aspects of health but keep in mind that it will help prime the metabolism and help people burn fat more efficiently. Alcohol, coffee, junk food, and stress are all very acidic to the body.
Drinking the My Fit Cocktail, eating our food, and drinking an alkaline water are all perfect ways to enhance pH, detoxification, and wake up the metabolism.
