Deep in the Carpathian Mountains there is a wondrous place known to be one of the few forests on Earth where Sequoia trees have taken root outside their natural habitat. This place is called, unsurprisingly, Valea Săcuieului or Sequoia Valley.
This area of breathtaking nature was formed through volcanic eruptions 145 million years ago. In the aquifers hundreds of meters deep begins the story of our spring water.
The natural volcanic filtration that AquaVia undergoes beneath the surface makes it so pure that nothing needs to be added or taken away. AquaVia is bottled at the source to preserve its elements and unique properties.
This is the raw power of nature.
pH is a measure for the hydrogen ions concentration in the water you drink or food you eat. Alkaline water with a pH over 7.0 has a higher concentration of negative ions. The body’s natural pH is at 7.4 but this is often lowered due to the consumption of acidic processed foods such as dairy, sugar and red meat. Naturally alkaline water with a stable high pH helps prevent this and keeps your bodily functions running smoothly.
Total Dissolved Solids or TDS refers to the total quantity of minerals, salts, metals, cations or anions dissolved in water. The higher the TDS, the less water we absorb as sediments are left behind. AquaVia has low TDS compared to most waters on the global market and a wonderful and refreshing taste.
Naturally high pH water which passes through rock and soil picks up various minerals containing alkalising compounds such as calcium, silica, potassium, magnesium, and bicarbonate. High pH and antioxidant capacities are much more stable with natural spring water than in the case of artificial processes and techniques.
Artificial alkaline water is water which undergoes human and mechanical intervention. This water is vapor-distilled or purified by some intermediate process, then either has electrolytes and/or minerals added, or is otherwise processed to make the pH more alkaline. The commonly used ionization machines generate acidic water as waste and are not the first choice of an environmentally conscious consumer.
