Waiakea Hawaiian Volcano Water Giveaway ~ 3 Winners!

I’ve been passing out samples of my newest bottled water company I’m drinking. Waiakea Hawaiian Volcano Water. Days later I’ll get responses like, ‘that water you gave me is really good!’ It IS good and I’m excited to tell you more about it.

Waiākea volcanic water originates in Hawai’i through both snowmelt and rain on the pristine peak of the active Mauna Loa volcano- one of the purest environments on Earth. Their water is naturally filtered through thousands of feet of porous lava rock which enhances it with life sustaining minerals before finally emerging as delicious and pure volcanic water.

um, did you read that paragraph? If not, go back and read it. SO cool.

Here are a few of the natural health benefits:

Naturally Enhanced with Minerals and Electrolyte Rich

Magnesium ~ regulates transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature, detoxification, and energy production.

Calcium ~ atrengthens bone structure, teeth, and cell membranes, ensures nerve and muscle impulses are properly transmitted, and helps prevent blood clotting.
Potassium ~ aids in the proper flow of flow of fluids and nutrients in cells, helps the brain, nerves and muscles function correctly, and plays an essential role in the  breakdown of amino acids and carbohydrates.
Sodium ~ is an essential factor in hydration as it holds water in the cells. It also helps send nerve impulses, and is needed for all muscle contractions.

Silica ~ providing the answer to healthier, younger looking, more radiant skin, hair, nails while promoting good bone health. In fact, studies show that drinking 10 mg/day of silica in water can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by 11%.

Naturally Alkaline 8.8 pH

Waiākea is one of the most alkaline natural waters in the world – no artificial processes, no decreased pH over time.

According to the The Journal of the International Society of Sports Medicine, individuals who drink alkaline water have an improved acid-base balance and hydration status compared to regular tap water, as well as increased bone density to help reverse Osteoporosis.

On top of this, Medical News Today found that bottled alkaline water, higher in pH, can help reduce discomfort in those who suffer from acid reflux by neutralizing stomach acid, as well as prevent free-radical damage and premature aging.

Did you know that water could do all of this?!

Waiakea Volcanic Water

And of course I love chatting about how companies are eco-friendly anyway they can be…

Their environmental initiatives include using one of the most sustainable fresh water resources in the world, using only 100% RPET bottles, utilizing low emission shipping, and actively participating in regional carbon offset programs- all of which have led Waiākea to be the first Hawaiian bottled water to be certified CarbonNeutral.

For every liter of Waiākea you buy, Waiākea donates 650 liters of clean water to those in need in Africa and throughout the world, through our incredible partner, PumpAid.org.

Equal Exchange Single Serve Recyclable Coffee Cups {Contest & Discount too!}

I drink coffee from my Keurig almost every single day. I do use the reusable filter most of the time with my ground packaged coffee, but I’ll admit that I do use Kcups too. They are just too convenient and come in such yummy flavors. A little guilt each time I throw it away? Yes.

Now I can feel better about my morning coffee. We’re helping out the small farmers, while reducing the environmental impact that many of those other cups bring. No more guilt!

Comes in three delicious flavors ~ Organic Breakfast Blend, Organic French Roast, Organic Unwind Decaf. I’m loving the breakfast blend and french roast to start out my day. I’ll drink the decaf in the afternoons sometimes or let C’Man have a mug of it…my little twelve year old coffee drinker! What did I start?

We think they really DO taste good! :)

Keep Hydrated #DrinkDripDrop

“Dehydration is a hidden cause of ailments like fatigue, headache, stress, and lack of focus.”

Drip Drop

We try to drink a lot of water around my house. Each member of our family has their own water bottle and they are constantly filled, day and night. This is a good thing, but the kids do complain sometimes that they want something different. I like the idea of Drip Drop because it brings in a little flavor and has added benefits too.

Developed by a Mayo-trained family physician, DripDrop contains a golden ratio of ingredients – including sodium, sugars and potassium –which absorb quickly and help you recover faster than any other hydration product on the market. In fact, DripDrop has been shown to hydrate 34% faster than water alone, and 20% faster than a sports drink.

I’ll admit to you that when our kids are sick, we go out and buy Gatorade for them. Listen to this though…

Drip Drop has 25% more electrolytes than pediatric drinks

Contains 2-3 times more electrolytes than sports drinks

Has 50% less sugar than sports drinks…and no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.

My kids really like the Berry flavor we received. Comes in Lemon too! C’Man was the first to try and P’Diddy had to have his own glass after tasting his brothers. I love the fact they come in single packets that don’t take up much room or can be thrown in my purse for on the go if needed.

Find Drip Drop at leading pharmacies like Walgreens, CVS and HEB. Here is a $2 off coupon!

Connect with Drip Drop on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Could you use a new idea to help your family stay hydrated and healthy?
