The benefits are derived from the formulation of the all-natural additives along with the high pH of 9.5.
9.5 pH – Detoxifies the body by ridding it of acids. Balances the pH of the overly ACIDIC Western diet. Antioxidant properties naturally flush out cells…and more.
Calcium –Electrolyte and natural antacid, controls blood pressure, aiding in weight loss and its key roll is fortifying bones. Also helps with maintaining heart rhythm, muscle function, and more.
Potassium – Helps control heart and kidney function and blood pressure. Aids in digestion and helps to prevent cramps. Low potassium can result in high blood pressure, stroke, arthritis, and even cancer.
Magnesium – Crucial to all bodily functions. Low magnesium can cause inflammation in joints, heart disease, and diabetes.
Vitamin Water – pH 4.0
Aquafina (owned by pepsi) – pH 4.0
Dasani (owned by coke) – pH 4.0
Ozarka – pH 5.07 – 6.06
Crystal Springs – pH 5.9
Crystal Geyser – pH 6.5
Sparklett – pH 6.9
“Exposure to the threat of heat stress has been cited as a hazard under the General Duty Clause and, therefore, adherence to the OSHA guidelines on worker hydration would seem to be advisable so as to avoid liability under §5(a)(1).
OSHA also states that an employer has the obligation to provide portable water under the sanitation standards of the Code of Federal Regulations. “Portable water” is defined as “ water that meets the standards for drinking purposes of the State or local authority having jurisdiction, or water that meets the quality standards prescribed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s National Primary Drinking Water Regulations. 29 CFR 1910.141(a)(2).
In light of the General Duty Clause and OSHA’s “portable water” requirements, it is strongly advisable for employers to implement a hydration plan and always ensure the ready availability of water on the job site.”

“A number of studies have been done over time linking dehydration to lower physical and mental performance. For example, Wasterlund and Chaseling  studied forest workers in a controlled environment, where one group was properly hydrated and the other dehydrated to an extent of about 1% of body weight loss. The measure was the time required to debark and stack 2.4 cubic meters of pulpwood. The result was a 12% decrease in productivity from the dehydrated group.”

“Avoid designer beverages (Red Bull etc.) because they offer minimal hydration. And avoid carbonated sodas and sugary concoctions. Iced tea is on the borderline, and anything with caffeine is a diuretic and should be avoided. Lemonade, and most citrus beverages are fine, but it’s a good idea to cut them with 50% water. Try also to cut down on cigarettes. In high heat they make it harder to respirate oxygen to where it needs to go.”
“Let’s first focus on OSHA compliance. As stated in the OSHA Technical Manual Section III Chapter four: “Operations involving high air temperatures, radiant heat sources, high humidity, direct physical contact with hot objects, or strenuous physical activities have a high potential for inducing heat stress in employees engaged in such operations.” OSHA recommends the following fluid replacement protocol:
Cool (50°-60°F) water or any cool liquid (except alcoholic beverages) should be made available to workers to encourage them to drink small amounts frequently, e.g., one cup every 20 minutes. Ample supplies of liquids should be placed close to the work area. Although some commercial replacement drinks contain salt, this is not necessary for acclimatized individuals because most people add enough salt to their summer diets.”
“When an employee is performing physical work, sweat output can easily outpace water intake, which will lead to dehydration. And, more severe working conditions can accelerate dehydration. Bishop et al.  observed that fully encapsulated protective clothing increased sweat rates up to 2.25 liters per hour. In the simplest of terms, what fluids leave the body must be replaced or dehydration is inevitable.”
