Rich in Natural Minerals
Better health & silky smooth taste

Minerals are vital to our health. Minerals are utilized by the body’s organ systems for growth, development, movement, energy production and maintenance of internal homeostasis, including regulating body temperature and blood sugar. In addition to producing enzymes and hormones, minerals play a significant role in the composition of tissues, bone, teeth, muscles and nerves.

Minerals in water are the most overlooked, understated factor and are a direct differentiator in water quality.

Minerals in ‘natural’ bottled waters, which include only artesian and spring sourced waters, are naturally present. The combination and amount of minerals is determined by the makeup of semi-porous rock which confines the artesian aquifer. In springs this is determined by the ground soil composition. It’s these natural occurring minerals that provide water with its taste, mouthfeel and added health benefits.

In bottling natural waters these minerals remain intact in the bottling process. The complete opposite occurs when bottling ‘processed’ waters. ANY BOTTLED WATER WHICH IS NOT SOURCED FROM ARTESIAN OR SPRING IS SOURCED FROM TAP/ MUNICIPALLY SUPPLIED WATER AND IS CLASSIFED AS ‘PROCESSED’.

Tap/ municipally sourced bottled waters are classified as ‘processed’ due to the water prior to bottling must undergo a manual or chemical filtration process which strips 99% of the water’s natural minerals and compounds.

Consuming water devoid of minerals is unhealthy and leads to disease. This is evidenced by the 2005 published study ‘Nutrients in Drinking Water’ by the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) which is comprised of multiple independent studies.(*1) Aware of the health risks, bottlers add chemically processed manmade minerals into the water, most often at undisclosed amounts.

There is an even greater cause for concern as some bottlers, showing a complete disregard for health, to this very day add chemically processed manmade alkalinizing agents such as sodium bicarbonate (commonly known as baking soda) or potassium bicarbonate (a low-sodium alternative to baking soda) directly into filtered tap/ municipally supplied water. They then market their product on the merits of its increased pH and/ or alkalinity.

If adding baking soda to water makes it “healthier” why haven’t the multibillion-dollar baking soda and antacid companies marketed their products for daily consumption? The answer is their products are labeled not to exceed the daily dosage and not to consume longer than 2 weeks. Furthermore, the F.D.A. categorizes these products as category C which advises against their use by women who are pregnant, intending to become pregnant, or currently breastfeeding.(*2)(*3)(*4)

Long-term consumption of sodium bicarbonate can increase a person’s risk for potassium and chloride blood deficiency, worsening kidney disease, worsening heart failure, rise in sodium levels, muscle weakness, cramps and increased stomach acid production.(*5)(*6) The Canadian Society of Intestinal Research states that consumption of sodium bicarbonate should not exceed two weeks.(*7)

It’s apparent our culture has been misled and misinformed with regard to bottled water. This statement can be supported with a question.


Name a single natural food item that is healthier due to being processed?


There is not a single item, so why do we accept this in our bottled water?

If given the option to consume, for example orange juice. One option is freshly squeezed from organic oranges the other is processed, i.e. altered by man. This processed version is stripped of its natural properties and then reformulated with man-made ingredients.  

The answer certainly is organic. But why do we as a society allow ourselves to be sold that water does not adhere to this?

Natural is always better than processed, period. Comparing natural water to processed water cannot be done as they are in two different classes of goods.

Processed bottled waters are easy to identify: (a) All processed waters are required to include an ingredient label due to the addition of ingredients. Artesian water contains only the water from the source with nothing added thusly does not have such requirement. (b) Processed waters are also required to label the contents of the bottle as filtered, processed or purified and/ or the method utilized, such as distillation or reverse osmosis, referred to as R.O.. Since artesian sourced water is not subjected to these harsh processes, labeling as such is not applicable.

REVEL, being sourced from an artesian aquifer is 100% natural, nothing removed and nothing added. Our water is rich in natural minerals. As the water passes into the aquifer it’s filtered by the encapsulated semi-porous rock upon which minerals from these substrates are absorbed into the water.
