We sure think so – and a recent study from the University of Arizona recently found that Kona Deep hydrates you twice as fast as bottled spring water and a leading sports drink. Read the full study here.
The wave in our logo is an enso–an ancient, sacred symbol of Zen Buddhism. It has many meanings including strength, grace and completeness. An enso is created in one sweeping motion, using the traditional brushes, inks and papers of Japanese calligraphy. Our enso was hand drawn using these tools and reflects our belief that natural hydration is essential to keeping our bodies healthy and whole.
Kona Deep has a natural pH of 6.7. We don’t artificially change the pH of our water.
In 1974, The State of Hawaii established HOST Park (Hawaii Ocean Science and Technology Park), a site for exploring emerging renewable and ocean based technologies. HOST Park is administered by NELHA (The National Energy Laboratory of Hawaii Authority). As Wikipedia states, “HOST Park is perhaps the largest single green economic development project in the world solely dedicated to growing a green economy.” At HOST Park, NELHA built a special pipe that reaches 3000’ underwater and pumps cold deep ocean water to surface. Also located at HOST Park, Kona Deep accesses that mineral rich deep ocean water and desalinates it using reverse osmosis while preserving its natural mineral and nutrient content.
We add absolutely nothing.
Electrolytes are essential to the function of our cells and organs. Kona Deep has a unique blend of electrolytes and trace minerals that come directly from the ocean. Our electrolytes occur naturally and include Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium, Chloride, Calcium and numerous trace minerals.
Kona Deep comes from a deep ocean current, 3000’ below the surface in one of the most remote and protected archipelagos in the world. Our water is created from melted glaciers in Greenland and Iceland, which, due to differences in salinity and weight, sinks to the ocean floor and begins a 1000-year journey flowing halfway around the world. Ultimately it arrives off the coast of Hawaii. Along its journey, this deep ocean water travels over undersea volcanic fissures and vents absorbing significant amounts of ionically charged electrolytes and trace minerals—becoming a natural part of Kona Deep.
Because the Big Island is the “youngest” Hawaiian Island, no reef has yet been formed. As a result, just off the coast of Kona Hawaii, the ocean floor falls sharply to over 3000’ below the surface. It is this geological phenomenon that allows us to access this deep ocean water in Kona and bottle it at the source.
