Waiakea Water Bottled from a Hawaiian Volcano

Product was given to me by Waiākea in order to post my honest opinion.


Not all water is equal. I have learned that not all water has the same benefits. While I prefer filtering my own water at home, I sometimes need to purchase water while out or on a special occasion. Waiākea bottled water is naturally filtered through thousands of feet of porous volcanic rock that give it a variety of natural health benefits. It has a naturally enhanced with minerals and has an Alkaline 8.8 pH.



Waiākea, Bottled with Mother Earth in Mind


Waiākea Volcanic Water is naturally enhanced with magnesium which regulates transmission of nerve impulses, body temperature, detoxification, and energy production; calcium which strengthens bone structure, teeth, and cell membranes, ensures nerve and muscle impulses are properly transmitted, and helps prevent blood clotting; potassium which aids in the proper flow of flow of fluids and nutrients in cells, helps the brain, nerves and muscles function correctly, and plays an essential role in the  breakdown of amino acids and carbohydrates; sodium which is an essential factor in hydration as it holds water in the cells. It also helps send nerve impulses, and is needed for all muscle contractions; and silica which provides the answer to healthier, younger looking, more radiant skin, hair, nails while promoting good bone health.

The soleus (pronounced SOH-LEE-US) is a powerful muscle in the back part of the lower leg (the calf). It runs from just below the knee to the heel, and is involved in standing, walking and running. If not for its constant pull, the body would fall forward.


Soleus is all about runners! Their line of watches are designed to enhance your experience, whether you’re lacing up for your first run or already a seasoned marathoner. They have a variety of products to choose from, but I am going to focus on their GPS watches.

Product was given to me from Nuun in order to post my honest opinion.


I learned about electrolytes last year and what it means to replenish them after or during a workout. I was first introduced to Nuun earlier this year. They have created a line of Electrolyte Enhanced Drink Tabs that you drop in your water. These naturally flavored tabs are helpful in staying hydrated no matter how much energy you are exerting.
