It can take years for the water to pass through the limestone collecting alkaline minerals such as calcium, bicarbonate, potassium and magnesium.
Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body, and about 99% of the body’s calcium is found in our bones. Calcium is also important in many enzymatic reactions in the body, is necessary for the contraction of muscles, the release of neurotransmitters, regulation of heart beat, and the clotting of blood. Calcium deficiency may ultimately lead to acidification as well as osteoporosis, which thins and weakens bones making them frail.

Bicarbonate is an important buffer for maintaining PH balance in the blood.
PH8 Natural Alkaline Water contains 267 mg/L of Bicarbonate
Potassium is critical in maintaining proper electrolyte and acid – alkaline balance. Potassium plays a fundamental role in cellular exchanges. Potassium deficiency may lead to poor energy, lack of strength as well as cramping.
PH8 Natural Alkaline Water contains 2.8 mg /L of Potassium
Magnesium is well known for its calming effect on our nervous system, as well as its stimulating effect on the immune system. It is vital in assisting in calcium and potassium uptake. A deficiency interferes with the transmission of nerve and muscle impulses, causing irritability and nervousness. Magnesium is also a crucial element in maintaining proper pH balance.
PH8 Natural Alkaline Water contains 21.5 mg /L of Magnesium
Selenium supports immune function and neutralizes certain poisonous substances such as cadmium, mercury, and arsenic that may be ingested or inhaled.
Selenium also acts as an antioxidant against free radicals that damage our DNA. Selenium is incorporated into proteins to make selenoproteins, which are important antioxidant enzymes. The antioxidant properties of selenoproteins help prevent cellular damage from free radicals. Free radicals are natural by-products of oxygen metabolism that may contribute to the development of chronic diseases.

Silica is what holds us together, so without it, we could fall apart! It is a trace element, a mineral that is only present in the body in minute concentrations).
It is critical for healthy organ, connective tissues, bone, cartilage and collagen formation. It is also important for our overall bodily function.
Benefits of Silica:
Improve skin elasticity, enhance collagen formation, strengthen teeth, gums, hair and nails. Silica also helps to remove aluminium from the body and stimulates cell formation.
