Drink to your health!
With a pH of 8 and an Alkalinity of 198 ppm, our natural mineral water is a rare and precious resource. Deep sourced natural artesian water that is both alkaline and mineralized seldom exists in Canada or for that matter anywhere else in the world. Most spring or mineral water that has been bottled and brought to market is obtained from shallow surface sources that can be subject to environmental contamination. Other waters are artificially enhanced to increase pH, however without natural minerals to buffer the alkalinity, it is not retained. Water analysis results show that our natural mineral water is rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese and bicarbonates. It is perfectly balanced in both alkaline and mineral content.
A natural source of Electrolytes, our mineral water has Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) content of 280 ppm. This classifies it as a Natural Mineral Water by both Canadian and USA water standards. The TDS in the water is comprised of minerals that would be expected from a natural aquifer water source. All the minerals are regarded as necessary for healthy living and are present in varied quantities.
The rich mineral replenishing content of our natural mineral water is attracting more and more health-conscious consumers because it refreshes and energizes them.
Riva Natural Mineral Water is the only Canadian natural alkaline mineral water on the market in Canada or the world. Unique in its mineral composition, pH and Alkaline balance along with its natural Electrolytes, it rivals other premium mineral waters in its class!
Do yourself a favor and Google the health benefits of mineral water in the human body and you will see why everyone in the world should be drinking it. Also see our promotional video below with a health endorsement by Dr. Roger Drinkwater!
Electrolytes are vital to one's health and survival. They are positively and negatively charged ions that are formed when minerals or other salts dissolve and separate in water. Since Electrolytes carry a charge, they can conduct an electrical current in water.
This characteristic of Electrolytes is important because the current enables Electrolytes to regulate how and where fluids are distributed throughout the body. They include potassium, calcium, magnesium, and bicarbonate, to name a few. The more mineral content there is in the water, the more Electrolytes there are. Riva has 280 TDS (Total Dissolved Solids).
Electrolytes transport nutrients into cells and wastes out of them. The difference in electrical balance inside and outside of cells also allows for transmission of nerve impulses, contraction or relaxation of muscles, blood pressure control, and proper gland functioning.
In addition, the presence of Electrolytes determines the acidity or pH of some fluids, especially blood. Below, is a list of our water minerals and the benefits of them in the human body:
Calcium (Ca) 81.6 ppm. Healthy muscles, bones and teeth.
Magnesium (Mg) 8.4 ppm. Transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature regulation, detoxification, energy production, and the formation of healthy bones and teeth.
Potassium (K) 3.1 ppm. Helps relieve stroke, blood pressure, heart and kidney disorders, anxiety and stress, enhances muscle strength, metabolism, water balance, electrolytic functions, and nervous system.
Manganese (Mn) 0.025 ppm. Healthy bone structure, bone metabolism, building bones, absorption of calcium, proper functioning of the thyroid gland and sex hormones, regulation of blood sugar level, and metabolism of fats and carbohydrates.
Bicarbonates (HCO3) 241 ppm. Necessary for digestion. When ingested, for example, with mineral water, it helps buffer lactic acid generated during exercise and also reduces the acidity of dietary components. It has a prevention effect on dental cavities.
Sulphates (SO4) 58 ppm. Contributes to healthy gastrointestinal, biliary, and digestive function.
Sodium (Na) 5.8 ppm. Partially responsible for nerve functions. Blood serum contains 3.3 g/L sodium. It regulates extra cellular fluids, acid-base balance and membrane potential, partially together with potassium.
Fluoride (F) 0.01 ppm. Fluoride is very helpful in preventing cavities and making teeth stronger.
Lithium (Li) 0.01 ppm. Also known as the "Happy" mineral, minute amounts of lithium are a vital part of a healthy diet according to many nutrition and health experts who believe that daily consumption of up to 2 mgs of lithium may be necessary for a number of important cellular interactions in the brain.
Zinc (Zn) 0.0002 ppm. A powerful antioxidant, helping to prevent disease and sickness. Also is directly involved in proper endocrine function and the maintenance of ideal hormone levels.
Chromium (Cr) 0.0008 ppm. Monitors the blood sugar, aids metabolism, reduces food cravings, regulates fat and cholesterol, prevents hypertension.
Silica (Si) 7.0 ppm. Silica was recognized by the health and science community as an essential trace element in 1972. Silica deficiency is the causal factor in many degenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and is the missing element in all anti-aging programs.
Strontium (Sr) 3.08 ppm. Strontium is chemically similar to calcium. It appears to play a role in the formation of new bone while slowing the breakdown of old bone, and thus may influence bone density. There is some evidence that women with osteoporosis may not absorb strontium as they should.
Molybdenum (Mo) 0.015 ppm. Essential for iron and oxygen utilization in the body. Promotes metabolism, aids enzyme functions, chemical and toxin detoxifier.
Barium (Ba) 0.043 ppm. Improves digestion, anti-stress or anxiety, and chronic fatigue.
Chloride (CI^1) 0.80 ppm. Promotes pH Balance of blood. As one of the mineral electrolytes, chloride works closely with sodium and water to help the distribution of body fluids.
pH 8 The human body's pH is probably one of the most important elements affecting one's health status and body function. Many conditions and diseases have this one basic element in common - out of range pH levels.
Alkalinity 198 ppm. Riva optimum alkaline properties provide a perfect blend of non-acidic balance to the body. Disease cannot live in an Alkaline environment!
