As one of the purest mineral waters on earth, 18 degrees is also probably one of the most balanced. Our aquifer is the deepest known in Fiji, conferring 18 Degrees advanced natural alkalinity, electrolyte and bicarbonate contents. They are essential to hydration and body balance. Pure hydration improves energy levels, supports metabolism, aids digestion, strengthens immune system, helps prevents muscle cramps and enables the body to flush out harmful toxins.
Bicarbonate, also known as hydrogen carbonate, is responsible for maintaining the balance of acids and bases in your body or the pH value. It is a base or alkaline, therefore an important counterbalance of acids. Bicarbonate works as an acid buffer. Our body generates bicarbonate during metabolism, but generally not enough to regulate the acid/base-balance your body needs to function efficiently.
It helps to strengthen the connective tissues of the brain, nerve cells, and spinal cord thereby improving memory and helping to prevent memory loss. Silica also helps stabilize the pancreas’s release of insulin! If you want your nails, skin, and hair to be healthy, turn to silica.
Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly.
Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. It plays several important roles in the health of your body and brain. It also acts as a calming agent for the body and mind and helps to combat anxiety – a useful aid to relax muscles, support meditation and encourage peaceful rest.
pH is a scale used to specify how acidic or basic a water-based solution is. Acidic solutions have a lower pH, while basic solutions have a higher pH. Neutral pH at room temperature is 7.0. Higher alkalinity in waters restores pH balance by reducing acidity levels in the body.
Electrolytes help your body absorb the water more efficiently to maximize hydration.
Chemically, electrolytes are substances that become ions in solution and acquire the capacity to conduct electricity. Electrolytes are minerals in your body that have an electric charge. Electrolytes are important because they help balance the amount of water in your body for normal function of our cells and our organs. Common electrolytes include sodium, potassium, chloride, and bicarbonate.
