Rationale: Rigid plastic bottles use BPA, BPS or other stiffening agents that are hormon-disrupting and cancer-causing. Plastic bottles also represent 30% of all plastic waste in oceans.
Aqui-Live advantage: We use glass bottles and a re-fillable soft pouch with food-grade lining.
Rationale: Healthy waters always contain a natural balance of minerals and electolytes, the only way this can happen is if the source is a deep under-ground spring.
Aqui-Live advantage: Our source is a 900 meter deep spring and surfaces naturally, without drills or bores.
Rationale: Waters with a low total mineral count don’t have much taste.
Aqui-Live advantage: Aqui-Live has 1,300 mg/l Total Dissolved Solids.
Rationale: It’s the alkaline minerals that make water alkaline, and only such minerals in ionic form make cells alkaline.
Aqui-Live advantage: Aqui-Live has a naturally alkaline pH of 8,3.
Rationale: Magnesium is required for absorbtion of calcium and for strong bones, more calcium than magnesium results in weak bones, calcification, cramps and heart disease.
Aqui-Live advantage: Aqui-Live contains 92 mg/l magnesium, and 64 mg/l calcium.
Rationale: Australians are chronically deficient in many trace minerals like iodine, selenium, zinc and silica, because they don’t exist in soil (and food) any more.
Aqui-Live advantage: Aqui-Live contains 22 of the 24 minerals required for good health, including rare minerals like zinc, silica, iodine, selenium and vanadium.
Rationale: Water purity, as measured by nitrate, should show that water is un-affected by fertilisers, animal waste and sewage. Nitrate above 4 mg/l means the water is compromised.
Aqui-Live advantage: Aqui-Live’s nitrate is only 0.008 mg/l, it’s the purest water available.
