Essentia Water - FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Essentia Water is supercharged ionized alkaline water that has a pH of 9.5 or higher with a clean, smooth taste.

To create our better hydrating water, Essentia uses a unique, proprietary three-step process. The process begins with purification through reverse osmosis to remove contaminants – making the water 99.9% pure – and is followed by the infusion of a proprietary mineral blend, formulated to replenish the body’s natural mix. Finally, the ionization process removes bitter-tasting acidic ions, which results in a water with a pH of 9.5 or higher with a clean, smooth taste.

To be considered alkaline water, the water must have a pH higher than 7.0.

It’s actually what we take out, not what we put in that results in Essentia’s supercharged ionized alkaline water. Most alkaline waters achieve higher pH from the source (i.e. from minerals that exist based on geographic location and result in higher pH) or from the adding of minerals in (e.g. electrolytes). Essentia achieves alkalinity through its proprietary ionization process. This process not only removes bitter-tasting acidic ions, but also raises the pH level to 9.5 or higher and results in a clean and smooth-tasting water that is quickly absorbed by the body. In a clinical study published in the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN), Essentia was shown to rehydrate better than a leading bottled water*.

We use local water supplies, which goes through our three-step proprietary process that transforms it into supercharged ionized alkaline water with a pH of 9.5 or higher. More information on our unique process can be found at www.essentiawater.com/water/.

Absolutely.  We actively encourage the recycling of our bottles. Our bottles are PET-1, which is BPA (bisphenol A) and phthalate free and can be recycled at virtually any recycling facility in the United States.

We are exploring ways to offer our product in larger formats as well as ways to evolve our packaging. Currently, our largest bottle is 1.5L and made of PET-1 plastic, which is BPA (bisphenol A) and phthalate free and can be recycled at virtually any recycling facility in the United States.

At present and in response to what are customers are asking for, we are focused on providing the best supercharged ionized alkaline water and exploring ways to offer that product in different formats vs. exploring sparkling or flavored water at this time.

The pH level of Essentia is 9.5 or higher and was shown in a third-party clinical study to rehydrate better than a leading bottled water*. You can find the full survey results in the Journal of International Society of Sports Nutrition (JISSN) or at www.essentiawater.com/hydration-study/.

Unfortunately, pH strips can’t provide an accurate reading due to Essentia’s 99.9% purity level and TDS (total dissolved solids) measurement. For Essentia water to be accurately tested, a properly calibrated pH meter must be used.

No, we do not use baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) and calcium chloride to make Essentia water alkaline. Those ingredients, as part of our proprietary mineral blend, are only added in trace amounts (< .005%) for taste and to replenish the body’s natural mix. Our pH of 9.5 or higher is a result of our proprietary ionization process, which removes bitter-tasting, acidic ions and creates our supercharged ionized alkaline water.

No, Essentia Water does not contain fluoride or chlorine.

No. Heating, boiling or freezing Essentia water does not significantly change its pH.

You can drink Essentia in place of all drinking water and other beverages. The health community suggests drinking water equal to half of your body weight in ounces per day.

Anyone with a chronic illness looking to make a change to his or her diet is advised to consult a physician.

We recommend that you consult your physician before consuming any product in question while pregnant.

Due to the specific dietary needs of babies and pets, we recommend discussing the addition of Essentia to their diet with your pediatrician and/or veterinarian.

In order for us to properly investigate, we need to gather specific information about the bottle. We will need the lot code & enjoy by date (found on the neck of the bottle), size and purchase location. You can reach out to [email protected] with this information and any other questions so they can assist you as quickly as possible.

In order for us to properly investigate the water, we need to get more detailed information from you.  Please contact [email protected] with the following: lot code and enjoy by date (found on the neck of the bottle), bottle size, purchase location, whether it was sealed before opening and whether you consumed anything else with the Essentia water at the time. They will look into the issue further and/or answer any additional questions.
