The "Ice Age" created a unique aquifer that is the source for EXCEL Natural Alkaline Mineral Spring Water. Our healthy and great tasting water is bottled at the source of the natural spring. EXCEL uses NO ionization or reverse-osmosis processing that others use, which can strip away important nutrients, creating "dead water." EXCEL is naturally alkaline at 7.8+ pH factor and features natural Electrolytes and Minerals to promote Fast Hydration and Better Health by helping your immune system excel. The refreshing taste of EXCEL is unlike any other bottled water you will find. Our Natural Alkaline Spring Water is UV-treated and micron filtered for safety, and bottled in "BPA-free" bottles and contains No Chlorine, No Additives, and No Calories.
You might have learned in Science or Chemistry class that everything you drink has a pH factor, with 7.0 pH being Neutral. Anything below 7.0 is "Acidic" and can be detrimental to your health. Sodas (like Cola) have a pH factor of 3.5 and coffee is around 4.6 pH. In addition, most bottled water on the market is also "Acidic" with a pH in the 4.0 to 5.0 range, all of which drives down the pH factor in your blood, leaving the body susceptible to disease and sickness because your body prefers to be at 7.4 pH for optimum health. EXCEL Spring Water is Naturally "Alkaline" at 7.8 pH factor and includes the Natural Electrolytes and Minerals captured at the source to aid in brain, heart, and nerve function, as well as muscle control and coordination. Plus, the High Alkalinity of EXCEL at 7.8 pH promotes Better Health and Fast Hydration, helping your Immune System to do what it is intended to do.
It is a known fact that your body functions best when Alkalinity is present. You can test EXCEL water with pH test drops and it will turn a bright blue color, indicating that it is around 8 on the pH factor chart. By contrast, other bottled water will turn yellow or green (4 or 5 pH) indicating that they are "Acidic" which does not promote good health.
"Because disease thrives in acidosis, drinking alkaline water is the fastest way to positively impact health and eradicate inflammation caused by excess acidity. High pH water can alkalinize the body at the cellular level and help the blood stream maintain its appropriate pH. This, in turn, helps to increase energy, improve sleep, reduce pain, eliminate acid reflux, normalize blood pressure and weight, and resist disease."--Susan Silberstein, PhD, Founder & President, BeatCancer.org
According to Keiichi Morishita in his book, Hidden Truth of Cancer, when your blood starts to become acidic, your body deposits acidic substances (usually toxins) into cells to allow the blood to remain slightly alkaline. But, this causes those cells to become more acidic and toxic, which results in a decrease of their oxygen levels, and harms their DNA and respiratory enzymes.
Over a period of time, he theorizes, these cells increase in acidity and some die. These dead cells themselves turn into acids. However, some of these acidified cells may adapt in that environment. In other words, instead of dying - as normal cells do in an acid environment - some cells survive by becoming "abnormal" cells. These abnormal cells are called malignant cells. Malignant cells do not correspond with brain function nor with our own DNA memory code. Therefore, malignant cells grow indefinitely and without order. This is known as Cancer.
As you can see, Morishita is describing, from a different viewpoint, the link between pH and cancer, a process by which low oxygen levels turn some cells cancerous. Alkaline water (including the water in cells) holds a lot of oxygen. Acidic water holds very little oxygen. So the more acidic your cells are, the less oxygenated they will be. To make matters worse, the fermentation process cancer cells use to produce energy creates lactic acid in the body, which further increases acidity and reduces oxygen levels.
As you learn more about pH and cancer, you find there is a long history of reversing cancer or at least slowing it down, simply by alkalizing the body. It is one of the basic strategies in the battle against cancer and for improving your health in general. While we are not saying that Alkaline water is a cure for Cancer, it also cannot harm you to drink it daily. It will certainly help to improve your body's own immune system by affecting the pH level in your body. We all need water to sustain life, afterall our bodies are 70% water. Doesn't it make sense to drink the healthiest water available to us? EXCEL Alkaline Spring Water is a great choice.
Most people understand that tap water is okay for washing clothes or bathing, but it is not recommended for drinking or cooking due to the chlorine and potential contaminants. Everyone knows the story about Flint, Michigan, and sadly there are other municipal water systems with safety concerns. Many people believe the increase in Cancer rates is due to what we eat and drink (including tap water). People assume that bottled water is safer, but not all bottled water is the same. It might surprise you to know that many bottled waters are merely tap water that has been processed (purified) through a machine, but still remains "Acidic," doing more harm to your body than good. EXCEL is very different because it is not tap water and it is not processed. EXCEL is Natural Alkaline Spring Water at 7.8 pH, offering Fast Hydration, quenching your thirst, and promoting better health by helping your body's own immune system to EXCEL.
Some fascinating Japanese research with 40,000 chickens illustrates the health benefits of alkaline water. All received the same feed, but one group was given regular ground water and the other group mineral alkaline water. After one month, the mortality rate of the chicks on the alkaline water was one-eighth the rate of the regular water group. After two months on the alkaline water, diabetic animals demonstrated a 34% reduction in blood sugar levels as compared with the regular water group; also noted were drops in cholesterol values. Most impressive were the cancer results. After only 15 days, the number, size and weight of cancerous tumors were 50% lower in the alkaline water group than they were in the regular water group.

Purified water is a very misunderstood term that is used to describe several bottled waters on the market that have no taste and very little health benefits because they are actually "Acidic." Purified water is defined as bottled water that usually originates from a municipal water source (tap water) and is further processed (purified) using a reverse osmosis or an ionization system to make it "clean" from certain pollutants. Many people think that "purified water" would be good for you, but that is not necessarily true. While purified water might be absent of various pollutants, many of these bottled waters still contain chlorine and they will nearly all test out as (Acidic) with a low pH factor hovering down around 5.0 pH. Another issue is that the so-called purified bottled water brands have been stripped of any electrolytes or minerals that might have been in the original water source. That's why purified water is often referred to as "dead water."
Some bottling companies attempt to add electrolytes or minerals back into their water after the fact, but it is just not the same. Electrolytes are important for proper hydration. Electrolytes aid in brain, heart and nerve function as well as muscle control and coordination. They are crucial for cellular function. Many "purified" water brands lack natural electrolytes. Some of them also try and load up their water with too much sodium which can lead to "bloating" (water retention) as well as contribute to health issues such as high blood pressure.
Unfortunately, Purified water often leaves an unpleasant after-taste and simply does not quench your thirst. Worse of all, virtually EVERY brand of Purified water on the market is actually "Acidic" (below 7.0 pH) which could be more detrimental to your health, rather than a positive attribute. Brands like Dasani, Aquafina, SmartWater, Life Water, Crystal, Nestle Pure Life, and countless others have tested out to be in the 5.0 pH range (Acidic), providing very little value to your health. (pH test drops turn the water yellow or light green in color which indicates the level of Acidity). Don't be fooled by the terminology of "purified" water. It doesn't mean the water is beneficial to your health. Know the pH factor of your water, and choose "Alkaline" water that contains natural electrolytes for optimum health. Also, be certain the bottles are "BPA free" to prevent leaching of BPA (Bisphenol-A) into the water which can be a health hazard. EXCEL Alkaline Spring Water is sold in "BPA-free" bottles for greater safety. EXCEL is All-Natural, not processed and contains No Chlorine, No Sodium, No Additives, and No Calories.
While the pH factor of various bottled waters is well documented, don't take our word for it, get some pH test drops and test the water for yourself and see the difference on the pH color chart.
Go a step farther and test the water in a local lab that has electronic testing. You will not only see the pH level of each water you test, but you will see other harmful contaminants in tap water that you won't find in bottles of EXCEL. Some independent labs have electronically tested EXCEL and found it to be at 8.2 pH. We know that our natural water is always at least 7.8 pH which is why the labels on our bottles state that it is 7.8+ pH.
Alkaline Water (above 7.0 pH) clearly has many health benefits and should be a part of each person's daily diet. Our bodies are made up of 70% water. As a result, everyone needs water to survive, but drinking the "wrong" water such as tap water or inferior "Acidic" bottled water disguised as "purified" water can do more harm than good because of the Acidity. Know the pH factor of your water and make certain it also has the natural electrolytes and minerals you need for good health. There are many differences in bottled water. Do your homework. EXCEL is all-natural, and it is always at least 7.8 pH. EXCEL provides Better Taste and promotes Better Health by helping your body's own immune system to excel.
