5 Reasons to Buy a Water Bottle

Filed Under: Environment,Water Purification and Storage at 7:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Do you own a reusable water bottle? We hope you do, but if you are still a consumer of packaged-in-plastic water, here are 5 great reasons to buy a water bottle and stop shopping bottled water.

1. Environment

The number one reason to purchase a reusable water bottle is to protect the environment. Millions of plastic bottles are used every day and only about 10% of those actually get recycled. That’s a ton of waste, literally. On top of that, add all the fuel used for transportation and manufacturing of plastic, and we are talking about a huge, and totally avoidable, impact on our environment.

2. Save Money

Shopping bottled water is very expensive. If you calculate the amount of money you spend for bottled water you drink every day, you are likely to stop buying it right away. Drinking the recommended daily amount of water using bottled water can cost an average of $1,500 per year.

3. BPA – Bisphenol A

BPA is an estrogen mimicking chemical in plastic that may affect your health. Studies have shown that BPA may affect brain function, immune function, hormonal function, as well as affecting babies, as some plastic toys contain BPA. When shopping a reusable water bottle, choose aluminum, glass or make sure the plastic ones are BPA-free.

4. Tap Water

Did you know that over 90 percent of public water systems meet EPA’s standards for tap water quality? So, you actually do not need to buy bottled water. If you still don’t trust your local tap water, a filtration system is an excellent way to provide top quality water for you and your family.

5. Bottled Tap Water

You are spending your money on top-quality brands of bottled water only to find out that about 40 percent of bottled water comes from tap water. The Natural Resources Defense Council has confirmed that the majority of brands of water contain a good percentage of water from tap.

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 11:00 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce a new concept of pure, healthy antioxidant water: Alkazone.

Alkazone has developed unique antioxidant alkaline water systems capable of producing healthier water. These water ionizers have helped thousands of people achieve a well balanced diet that allowed them to live a longer and a healthier life. The company introduced the first antioxidant alkaline water fountain in 1996, based on the same technology as the water ionizing systems introduced over 50 years ago in Japan. Through continuous research and development, water ionizing systems have become a major part of everyday living all over the world.

Additionally, Alkazone offers Alkaline Booster, a top quality product which contains potassium bicarbonate as its base ingredient along with calcium, magnesium, selenium, zinc and Aminozone, formulated to enable better absorption by the body. The drops can be added to water, tea, coffee, and juices to raise the pH level and help offset the acidity within the body.

Lucky Vitamin Presents: Klean Kanteen

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 4:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is happy to introduce another top quality brand of water purification and storage: Klean Kanteen.

Klean Kanteen provides affordable, high quality beverage containers and accessories that are good for people, and good for the planet. This eco-friendly line offers an incredible variety of water bottles to give people a safe alternative to plastic or lined aluminum bottles.

In 2004, Klean Kanteen created the first BPA-free stainless steel personal hydration bottle on the market to give health and environmentally conscious people an alternative to plastic. “The Original” Klean Kanteen Classic remains a top seller and is now available in a variety of new colors, sizes and cap styles.

News in the outdoor industry has once again brought much attention and questioning about the presence of the chemical, bisphenol-a (BPA), in reusable bottles. Many scientific studies indicate BPA has the potential to act as an endocrine-disrupter when ingested, and fetuses, infants, and children are most susceptible to develop negative human health effects associated with BPA such as diabetes, heart disease, cancers, infertility, obesity, and neurological disorders.

Klean Kanteen makes bottles from high quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel, a metal superior in both strength and safety that contains no harmful chemicals or toxins, including BPA. In fact, the National Toxicology Program recommends choosing glass, porcelain, or stainless steel containers to prevent exposure to BPA. Unlike aluminum bottles, there’s no requirement for a liner in Klean Kanteen, since stainless steel is recognized around the globe as a safe, food-contact material. Sure it costs more to produce a stainless steel bottle compared to aluminum or plastic, but it’s certainly worth it.

Lucky Vitamin is now offering free shipping on all Klean Kanteen items. Just enter promotion code KANTEENSHIP at checkout for free Standard Shipping and savings equivalent to $5.95 off (cost of standard shipping). A $50 minimum purchase of Klean Kanteen products is required.

If you are still mixing your shakes the old fashion way, it’s time to give “shaker cups” a try and you’ll be amazed by these efficient and practical products.

Shakers have become a “must have” item for active people and fitness enthusiasts. Running, biking, fitness classes and weight lifting are activities that may require supplementation for optimal results. Powder supplements generally offer the best formulas and are easily absorbed but preparation has always been an issue.

Now, with an easy-to-use shaker, workout enthusiasts can enjoy a smooth mix with no mess, quickly transforming powder supplement into delicious drinks.

The Sundesa BlenderBottle has been the most successful model as this unique, affordable and innovative portable mixer works without batteries and no cord. It’s powerful enough to mix the thickest ingredients with ease thanks to a magic ball named BlenderBall. Made of surgical-grade stainless steel, the ball wire whisk makes short work of your mixing needs and is designed to remain in the cup until you’ve fully enjoyed all the contents. Available in two sizes and in many different colors, the Blender Bottle fits most car drink holders.

On the other hand, Fit & Fresh also offers a premium line of shaker cups including stainless steel models. The Fit & Fresh Power Mixer Pro can mix powdered drinks, batters, dressings, omelets and more. The enhanced motor instantly blends powdered drinks, combining a fast and powerful mixer with a convenient 20oz. supplement cup. An innovative triple fan wand reaches to the bottom of a cup for a smooth mix, combining liquid and powder, simply using AAA batteries. All Fit & Fresh products are BPA (bisphenol A) free, and meet FDA regulations for food grade plastic.

Lucky Vitamin Presents: Santevia

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 5:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

Lucky Vitamin is proud to present Santevia Water Systems to our customers. Santevia products can help you save the environment, save money and save your health.

Santevia Water System transforms ordinary tap water into clean, clear, mineralized drinking water. The eight stage Santevia water process brings clear, fresh mountain taste to every glass of water with a pH of over 8.0. The water is purified by natural ceramics, infused with essential minerals and invigorated by magnetic energy.

Regular tap water is transformed into clean, alkaline water at a lower cost than any other common filter system. More than a water filter, the Santevia Water Process adjusts water’s pH to mildly alkaline by reintroducing minerals that promote ionization and oxygenation, which helps your body maintain its active equilibrium.

Most importantly, using a water system can significantly reduce the waste of plastic water bottles. Santevia can create a more eco- friendly future as every time a plastic water bottle is used it contributes to the growing amount of pollution and toxins released into our fragile ecosystem. One Santevia Pure Earth Water System can eliminate up to 14,600 single use plastic water bottles every year. The average adult spends over $400 every year on bottled water and out of the 28,000,000,000 plastic bottles used each year, 86% end up as garbage.

Furthermore, Santevia Pure Earth Water System helps to eliminate plastic pollution. The Pacific Ocean’s plastic vortex is growing daily and causing widespread harm to marine life.  As the quantity of garbage grows in the Pacific, so does the amount of toxins leeching into the water.  These toxins are contributing to the death of certain marine species that rely on the ocean for their survival.

Lucky Vitamin is now offering this affordable, environmentally friendly, pH controlled Santevia water system at our always discounted prices.

Water: Save, Save, Save

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 3:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

One of the best ways to “save” is to invest in “water” for many reasons. A system for water purification as well as water storage (bottles and pitchers) can help you and your family to save in many different ways.

First, you can save the planet. Millions of empty bottles of water end up in landfills every year. When you buy a reusable water bottle, you can help minimize the number of discarded plastic containers piling up in landfills and rivers. You can buy a top-quality water bottle that will last months, possibly years, and will no longer waste a single disposable plastic bottle.

Second, you can save money. Many people often spend more money than they should in bottled water. The human body needs water for all important functions including digestion, nutrient distribution, energy production and most importantly detoxification. You can’t and should not stop drinking water but you can definitely save money buying a water bottle and refilling with filtered water. You can find several top quality reusable bottles for less than $5.

In addition, water filtration is a priceless investment in your family and it pays for itself in a matter of weeks. Most work places offer filtered water as well as other places such as schools, fitness centers, and gyms. If you still don’t have filtered water at home, an entire water purification system won’t cost you more than $100.

Finally, you can save your health. The majority of bottled water brands do not disclose complete information regarding source, purification, testing and advanced treatment. A significant number of brands use municipal water in the production of their products. So, depending on your location, drinking bottled water can be harmful to your health.

The Best Bottled Water is… None

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 1:00 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor

A recent report posted on the web shows scary results of the best and the worst bottled water brands. The study by the nonprofit Environmental Working Group (EWG) analyzed 173 bottled water products to determine if companies disclose information on where water comes from, how or if their water is treated, and whether the results of purity testing are revealed.

The results show that the majority of brands do not disclose complete information regarding source, purification, testing and advanced treatment. Not even a single brand was graded A, only three brands received grade B, a few brands were graded C but the vast majority were graded F “murkiest labels”.

It’s no surprise the results show this much lack of information regarding sources of bottled water. Past reports have shown a good number of brands use municipal water in the production of their products.

More than half of the bottled water products surveyed failed EWG’s transparency test. An incredible 18 percent didn’t say where their water comes from, and another 32 percent did not disclose any information on treatment or purity of water.

So, instead of spending money on “murky” labels of bottled water, buy a water bottle and enjoy pure water at no additional cost to you and our environment.

Buying a water bottle is one of the smartest ideas. You are protecting the environment, saving money, and improving your health by increasing your chances of drinking more water and less soda.

Most work places offer filtered water and, if you still don’t have one, consider purchasing a water filtration system for your home. A water filter is definitely one of the best investments for you and your family as it pays itself in a matter of weeks.

Save Money: Buy a Water Bottle

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 10:16 am | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Bottled water

Water is great for you. Drinking a lot of water is essential for a healthy diet and active lifestyle. But the question is: do you need to pay for bottled water?

The answer is no. Save money: buy a water bottle instead of a bottle of water.

Bottled water manufacturers’ claims their products are purer and safer than tap water. Not always the case. A recent report shows that bottled water may come from city pipes, just like the tap water you drink at home. About 25 percent of all bottled water is taken from municipal water sources, including Coca-Cola’s Dasani and Pepsi’s Aquafina.

Furthermore, according to a study by the Natural Resources Defense Council, about 22 percent of brands tested had at least one sample of chemical contaminants above the strict state health limits.

So, why would you pay for a bottle of water when the quality of the water is just as pure as tap water? Think about how much money you could be saving. If you buy one or two bottles of water a day, you are spending anywhere between $1000 and $1500 a year.

An entire water purification system won’t cost you more than $100. Top-quality water bottles cost anywhere between $5 and $10. We are talking about a priceless investment for your family.

Plus, let’s not forget the environment. Think about it when you take the recycle trash outside (we really hope you do recycle). You can reduce or completely end the waste of empty bottles of water. Approximately 1.5 million barrels of oil are used to make plastic water bottles, while transporting these bottles burns even more oil.

Sounds like a perfect plan. Buy a water bottle, start saving money and protecting our planet.

Are we drinking too much water?

Filed Under: Water Purification and Storage at 12:24 pm | By: Mauricio Matusiak, Senior Editor
Water is essential for the maintenance of our bodies

A recent study published by the University of Pennsylvania raises questions about the daily amount of water needed by average healthy individuals. Are we questioning the good old saying: Drinking eight glasses of water a day is healthy.We all know the importance of water for our bodies. Water prevents dehydration, promotes healthy skin and improves kidney function, just to mention a few. In addition, headaches are often attributed to water deprivation. However, the standard eight glasses of water a day is now proved to be only necessary by athletes and individuals living in hot, dry climates, according to the study by Dr. Dan Negoianu and Dr. Stanley Goldfarb of the University of Pennsylvania, published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.A few things need to be considered when planning your daily amount of water intake.First, your diet. Do you eat enough fruits and vegetables, which may provide you up to 25% of your water needs? Apples, melons, cucumbers, tomatoes? Second, are you exercising on a regular basis? Does your workout “make you sweat”? Are you doing any cardiovascular activity? Do you feel thirsty? Finally, do you have drink enough liquids on a regular basis? Milk, juice, shakes?Drinking eight glasses of water will never hurt you but you might be forcing yourself into an unnecessary routine or be drinking more water than you actually need.Planning a healthy balanced diet and an exercise program should help you decide whether you really need more, less or just eight glasses of water a day.�
