How to Choose the Healthiest Bottled Water
“You are what you drink.”
Good morning fellow health nuts, I’m your host Pete back today with a continuation of my best bottled alkaline water article. Yesterday, I shared the top 10 best bottled alkaline water brands in 2019. In today’s article, I discuss what to look for when choosing the best bottled water for your health.
With all the different bottled water brands available today and the ability to order them online straight to your door, it’s a challenge to choose the right one.
By the end of this guide, you’ll confidently choose the best bottled water for your health and your family’s too. After all, we all have different needs and wants.
How to Choose the Healthiest Bottled Water
The key determinants when selecting the healthiest bottled water are:
- Water source
- pH level
- Mineral content
- Plastic bottle chemical content
- Company transparency
- Product reviews
So how can you find the cleanest and best tasting bottled water in the world?
Well, buying online is your best bet.
Through my research, I’ve discovered several brands that are the healthiest available, and you may have trouble finding them locally.
We’ve all heard the saying, “You are what you eat.” Well, you are what you drink as well.
Not all water is created is equal.
Why is pH important?
Alkaline Water Machine Source’s mission is to spread the good word about the amazing proven health benefits of alkaline ionized water.
I battled chronic fatigue for nearly a decade, and before I began drinking alkaline water, I suffered from a wicked case of heartburn.
The SAD (Standard American Diet) is acidic for the most part, and most popular bottled water brands are acidic. Watch the proof for yourself below:
Once I began drinking alkaline water, I felt better overall, and eventually, my heartburn problem went away for good.
The night I woke up to a fire in my throat was one of the most painful experiences of my life.
Now, I am able to eat and drink without worry as I did before the heartburn problem.
The best pH level for drinking water is between 8 and 10. A neutral pH of 7 should be the absolute minimum for any water we drink.
Avoid Plain Reverse Osmosis Water
Reverse osmosis seems good in theory, but the reverse osmosis process strips water of all its minerals and leaves the water with a slightly acidic pH.
Alkaline ion water contains essential minerals that our bodies need on a daily basis to function properly.
BPA-Free bottles should be standard
BPA free bottles should be standard at this point.
It’s important to buy water from a company that has the environment and your health in mind.
There are other chemicals beyond BPA, and for this reason, it’s critical to buy water from companies that go the extra mile for your health.
This is where company transparency comes into play.
Look for companies that offer as much information about their water as possible. This includes source, pH, mineral content, testing results, mission, etc.
What are other people saying?
People who already bought the water are the best source of valuable information. Don’t worry, I’ve done the research to save you time.
Below, you can check out my picks for best bottled water for your health.
And last but not least, taste. Reviews are the best place to find information about taste.
Personally, I love the crisp, refreshing taste of alkaline ionized water the most.
Healthiest Bottled Water Brands
Now that you know what to look for, here’s my list of healthiest bottled water to buy in 2019:
1. Evamor Natural Alkaline Artesian Water
If you are in the market for 100% natural water with a high pH, Evamor water should be at or near the top of your list. The company is completely transparent and uses PET1 BPA free plastic. The water has a pH range of 8.8 to 9.1, and since it’s unaltered, the pH will stay the same while stored. The natural minerals found in Evamore make it great to drink for overall health and hydration.
2. Triumph Alkaline Water
Triumph water is my top pick for alkaline ionized water for several reasons. First, I love that it’s sourced in the USA from an untouched spring aquifer along the Appalachian Trail. Second, it’s ionized with natural minerals from the Earth, yet fluoride free. The bottles are also BPA free. The company even goes the extra mile by donating a portion of its sales to the National Park Foundation.
3. Essentia Water
The most complete water on this list could very well be Essentia Water. It has the largest fanbase and is endorsed by professional athletes. It’s also both ionized and alkaline with a high pH of 9.5 or higher. Essentia is packed with electrolytes, making it great to drink before, during, and after a workout. The bottles are BPA free. Essentia is also a pioneer in the bottled alkaline water market, having already been in business for 20 years.
4. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water
Waiakea water is in the same class as Evamor, and it’s sourced from beneath a volcano in Hawaii. How cool is that? The water starts as natural precipitation and filters its way through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock. Imagine the energy boost you get when you drink a glass of power-packed natural water from Earth. The water has a naturally alkaline pH of 8.2, which is higher than the popular Fiji water. The bottles are BPA free and 100% RPET. The company obviously cares about your health and the Earth. I love it.
5. Qure Alkaline Water
The last item on my list is an alkaline ionized water brand packed with electrolytes. For those of you who want a high pH, Qure has the highest on this list with a pH of 10. The company also guarantees a “silky” taste that you will surely love. Qure water is fluoride free, and the bottles are BPA free. Qure uses a 9-stage coconut and mesh filtration process to achieve superior tasting water.
Now you know everything there is to know about choosing the best bottled water for your health.
I spent hours researching different brands to help you save time and make the most informed decision.
Which one do you think is the healthiest bottled water?
Cheers to longevity!
