Do you know H20?

Do you know that water is the most important nutrient in your body?

  • That's right! Water is your body's most important nutrient because it is involved in every bodily function. It makes up 70- 75% of your total body weight.

  • Water helps you to maintain body temperature, metabolize body fat, aid in circulation and digestion, lubricate and cushion organs, joints and muscles, transport nutrients, keep your mind alert and flush toxins from your body.

  • Everyone should drink at least 64 ounces per day, and if you exercise or are in the heat or are overweight, even more. Water has no calories, no caffeine, and no cholesterol! So drink up!

Do you know the symptoms and consequences of dehydration?

  • Dehydration can cause headaches, arthritis, heartburn, memory loss, weakness, dizziness, irritability, water retention, weight gain, nausea and fatigue.  Do not wait until you feel thirsty to re-hydrate your body!

  • If you are not getting enough water, your body will react by pulling it from other places, including your blood. This causes the blood to become thicker, more susceptible to clotting, and harder to pump through your system.

  • It is always better to drink water instead of caffeinated drinks. These products actually increase your need for fluids because caffeine is a diuretic. Diuretics force out stored water along with certain essential nutrients which can cause dehydration. Also, these types of drinks tend to have lots of calories which can lead to weight gain.

  • Water is one of the most significant factors in successfully losing weight and keeping it off. When your body is dehydrated, your brain may confuse the signals with hunger, causing you to overeat. Luckily, water is a great natural appetite suppressant and can help you shed unwanted pounds.

Do you know the different types of bottled water?

Here are the most popular types:

  • Spring Water: Water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth. Spring water must be collected only at the spring or through a borehole tapping the underground formation feeding the spring The spring water at our facility then goes through processes of Multi-Stage Micron Filtration, UV Sterilization and Ozonation to ensure a good quality product (please see our process page for more details).

  • Distilled water: Water that has virtually all of its impurities removed through distillation. Distillation involves boiling the water to 100° C. Because dissolved minerals have boiling points above 100° C, they remain in the heating container. The water vapor, now free of dissolved minerals and other substances, is condensed back to water into a clean container.

  • Purified Drinking Water: Water that usually originates from public water sources and then goes through a multi-stage filtration process and reverse osmosis. The carbon and micron filters are used to remove undesirable tastes and odors by absorbing substances such as organic compounds and chlorine, which essentially stick to the surface of the filter. Reverse osmosis is a purification process in which water is forced under pressure through membranes or semi-permeable separations which remove nearly all dissolved minerals.

Do you know how to store your bottled water?

  • Bottled water should be stored at room temperature (or cooler), out of direct sunlight and away from solvents and chemicals such as gasoline, paint thinners and dry cleaning chemicals.

  • Our natural product contains no chemicals or preservatives. As a result, extended exposure to the sun can cause algae growth. To prevent this common and natural process from occurring and to maintain the quality of your bottled water keep the bottle out of direct sunlight.

  • Bottled water can be used indefinitely if stored properly. FDA has not established a shelf life for bottled water.

Do you know that bottled water IS regulated?

  • Despite claims in recent news, bottled water is comprehensively regulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and state agencies. These stringent standards help ensure bottled water's consistent safety, quality and good taste. By law, FDA bottled water standards must be at least as stringent and protective of the public health as the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) tap water regulations.

  • Our water is frequently tested and monitored at the spring source. Also, once the water goes through our purification process and is bottled it is tested by an outside laboratory regularly to verify that we meet and exceed all federal and state regulations.

  • Bottled water is a safe, healthy and a refreshing food product that is used because of its convenience and because it is a good way to stay hydrated.

Do you know that bottled water containers are 100% recyclable?

  • That’s correct!  Bottled water containers are 100% recyclable and we encourage all consumers to recycle all plastic containers through their local municipality system that is set in place.

  • Bottled water is just one of hundreds of thousands of packaged products used by consumers every day.  Despite claims by the media, PET water bottles account for a very small part of the waste stream.  These bottles accounted for less than one-third of one percent of all waste produced in the US last year. 

  • At LIVIE® Bottled Water we are committed to being an environmental partner.  While many bottled water offerings are marketed at 18-24 grams of PET plastic, at LIVIE® we are demonstrating our social responsibility by offering .5 Liter PET packages with only 13 grams of material.  That is 30-45% less plastic per bottle! What’s more – our 3 & 5 Gallon bottles are returnable so that they can be washed, sanitized, and re-used up to 75 times over their four year life-span before they are removed from the marketplace and recycled. 

So now that you know H20, drink more LIVIE® brand bottled water and Live Life Refreshed!
