Smartwater

Smartwater

Dietary Needs:
None

Smartwater is made using purified water, which the FDA defines as: Water that is produced by distillation, deionization, reverse osmosis or other suitable processes and that meets the definition of purified water. Smartwater is re-mineralized by the addition of the electrolytes calcium chloride, magnesium choride, and potassium bicarbonate. Mineral water is best because it is as nature intended.

Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water

Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water

Dietary Needs:
None

We have found that Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water (make sure to only drink this kind as they now also have purified water we do not recommend) is one of the only bottled waters on the market that is pH balanced at a neutral 7.0. We always suggest consuming products as nature intended which is why we favor mountain spring water with naturally occurring minerals. The springs they choose are consistently replenished and the water is filtered naturally. As far as we know, they are the only water company using non-leaching plastic containers (except for their 3 & 5 gallon containers) and that is HUGE in our book. Arrowhead gets a super high rating because they have reduced their PET in the plastic by over 60% in the last 15 years.

Aquafina

Aquafina

Dietary Needs:
None

Aquafina is purified, reverse osmosis water. It originates from public water sources and is then purified through a rigorous, seven step purification process called Hyrdo-7. This process removes things like chloride, salts and other substances that can affect water's taste. Mineral water is always leaps and bounds better, cleaner and healthier but Aquafina's process is good. We are never thrilled with the plastic component of bottled water because of the environmental havoc it wreaks and because who knows how long those plastic bottles might have sat on a truck or in the sun and how much leaching occurred.

Penta Ultra-Purified Water

Penta Ultra-Purified Water

Dietary Needs:
None

Penta water is ultra-purified so it is touted to maximize antioxidant activity because of ease of absorption. The jury is still out on that one because we cannot understand the science behind that and we are wondering where the trace minerals come from? It is one of the most expensive waters out there and when we tested it with our pH strips, it came up acidic. We are never thrilled with the plastic component of bottled water because of the environmental havoc it wreaks and because who knows how long those plastic bottles might have sat on a truck or in the sun and how much leaching occurred.

Crystal Geyser Water

Crystal Geyser Water

Dietary Needs:
None

Their spring water is bottled at the source, double disinfected using an ozonation and micron filtration process (when it is required). What we love most about Crystal Geiser is they do not remove healthy minerals from their water. It was the first US spring water permitted in the European Union and EU standards are stricter than ours so that is a good sign. If you are going to drink bottled water, then we do recommend Crystal Geyser. We are never thrilled with the plastic component of bottled water because of the environmental havoc it wreaks and because who knows how long those plastic bottles might have sat on a truck or in the sun and how much leaching occurred.
