Waiakea water is naturally filtered by running through many layers of the Mauna Loa volcanic rock until it flows out at the base of the volcano. This natural process has made this water some of the purest on earth.
Ryan Emmons, the founder of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, realized that the water was something special, since his family had started using it as a water source years ago. In fact, this volcanic water has been tested and scientists found a naturally perfect alkaline composition (7.8%) with a rich amount of electrolytes (calcium, sodium, potassium, and magnesium) and the ideal level of silica, perfect for keeping the body’s health at a maximum level of wellness. Silica has the extra benefit of reducing Alzheimer’s risks as we age.
Since Waiakea has been founded in 2012, sales of the water have grown more than 5,000 percent from bottling several thousand cases to over 120,000 cases yearly. The water is loved so much that Ryan and his team are building a new manufacturing facility in Hawaii to keep up with production. Waiakea can be found Wawa, Whole Food markets, and 300 other locations across the nation. Waiakea’s website offers several different home delivery plans that offer the convenience of delivery.
In keeping with the renewable spirit of the company, the founder goes as green as possible. The packaging for Waiakea is made from all recycled plastic with no BPA present. The Waiakea spring is a renewable resource and one of the purest sources of water on the planet. Waiakea also works with Pump Aid, an organization that brings water to villages and installs water pumps when appropriate so that villages can have their own renewable water source. To date, Waiakea donates 650 liters of water for every liter of water Waiakea sells. They committed to partnering with Pump Aid to keep the water and wells for villages supplied.
Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water is worth a taste and the ethics of the company are enough to show some support. After all, everyone should drink to their health.
