Waiakea Water: Modern Changes to the Bottled Water Industry

Posted by eastcoop on

You can barely walk a few meters on the streets before spotting one or more individuals drinking bottled water. This alone suggests that we have an implied trust that bottled water is clean, pure and safe for use. It is a generalized impression of all bottled waters, but the truth of the matter is that not all bottled products are safe for drinking. Selection should not be based on the physical outlook of the bottle but more the product itself. People ought to learn the tips of making proper choices as bland brands do exist. Research shows that the bottled water industry averages about $100 billion, this lets us know that there are tins of bottled waters being sold every day.


Waiakea Water, one of the leading bottled water companies, jumps out as a result of its continued efforts to improve the quality of its products. When executing its duty to produce high-quality bottled water, the company keeps at heart the health aspects of its customers. To improve the quality of its bottled water, the company uses a thorough and exceptional filtration process. Generally, everyone thinks that bottled water is purified through contemporary machines and with the addition of chemicals. But this is not the case when it comes to Waiakea. Waiakea’s filtration process involves the use of a porous volcanic rock, and this is actually the reason why they call the water volcanic water. Moreover, the water is completely natural as no additives or chemicals are added to it.


The environmental concerns of Waiakea is simply exceptional. All their actions are geared towards having a greener environment, and they adopt clean technology when it comes to production, delivery, as well as also disposal. Having collected the well-filtered water, the company packages it in full degradable bottles, a project slated for 2018. Waiakea prides itself on using high-grade 100% RPET, or recycled polyethylene terephtalate, for all of its bottles. RPET is post-consumer recycled plastic and has incredible environmental advantages.


Basically, regular plastic water bottles take over 1,000 years to completely degrade into the environment. However, Waiakea’s bottles will only require a maximum of 15 years, a great thing when it comes to the conservation of the environment. Read This Article to learn more.


After packaging, distribution is made effectively using low-emission vehicles, a move that has not yet been implemented by any other bottled water companies. Finally, Waiakea water recognizes the need to help others by donating water as well as funds to organizations in need by partnering with PumpAid. This allows for the company to help out the community even more and allows them to continue to grow.

Elysium Health’s Supplement Basis

Posted by eastcoop on

Elysium Health is a consumer health company translating advances in science and technology into clinically validated health products that work. The company was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente—the director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. Elysium’s mission is to help people live healthier, longer.


Elysium Health works together with world-class scientists from universities such as Stanford, Yale, Harvard, and others. These scientists guide the company’s research and development of its products.


Basis is the first supplement created by Elysium Health. Basis works by increasing and sustaining levels of NAD+ in our cells. This coenzyme is essential to many of our cellular functions like energy creation, circadian rhythms, DNA protection, and others. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline naturally and those functions break down. Basis is designed to support those cellular functions and our cellular well-being.


Basis is clinically proven to increase NAD+ levels in humans. A randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind clinical trial conducted in 2016 demonstrated that taking two capsules of Basis per day (the recommended dose) over the course of several weeks increased NAD+ levels by an average of 40 percent in adult participants.
