I have this love and hate relationship with water.
I used to crave water all the time not until I started to detest available bottled water and the after-taste of filtered water. If it didn’t have a slice of lemon or cucumber, it’ll be difficult for me to chug on a bottle or two.
But, if we are truly concerned and would like to take care of our bodies – water is the primary thing you should be having throughout the day and not your caffeine.
Luckily, Suncoast Lightwater was introduced to me back in 2012 when I was still training, running and organizing fun runs, pikermi’s and the marathon’s like a madwoman every weekend and laced up before and after work shifts.
I used to manage and update a fitness blog: Runaholic.
I’ve witnessed the transition of the running community from being an individual sport into a demanding and discriminating buyer’s market where everything is highly analyzed (which is actually a good thing), even how one gets to supplement’s the body for pre, during and post-races.
As someone who’s sensitive with water (I get to have migraines), I’m pleased to have been able to find ‘the one’ which has been serving me up until today and have endorsed it highly to other friends including their businesses.
I’ve never looked back and opted for other else except Lightwater.
Why is it the best?
- No Taste or After-Taste
Toss soda out to quench your thirst, this one will. A cool glass or a bottle makes you drink not just one but more. If you’re into weight-loss, we all do know that having a glass before a meal can curb your appetite and when you’re out for athletics or training, you wouldn’t need to even worry about proper hydration.
2. Electrolytes in a bottle.
No need to count calories and choose which flavor to have. All you need is plain and it tastes great even when warm. It can nourish your body in an instant. No need for salt packs! It already has the right amount of calcium, potassium, and magnesium in a bottle.(
3. Not Acidic
Aside from knowing that it’s consciously bottled BPA approved, the measure of acidity (PH Balance of 8.2) of the water is exactly what your body can handle. Drinking water PH standard is from 7.5 to 8.5 to calm our internal organs and in preventing acid reflex in at-risk runners. (Koufman, 2012)
4. Hydrates you right
It truly is better water as it helps boosts your body as a natural daily detoxifier and skin moisturizer.
Now that I have graduated from my weekly fun runs and marathons, I’ve carried along the brand with me as the choice for my family to have whenever we’re out in transit, meetings, yoga or pilates sessions or in whatever circumstance that we may need water – Lightwater is always the go-to and we’re happy to know it’s available in Mercury Drugstores, Family Mart, Convenience Stores (Alpha Mart, 7-Eleven, MiniStop) and leading grocery chains in the metro.
Don’t take my word for it. Observe closely over other ‘Bottled Water’ to know the difference yourself. Even if it is just a mental “placebo effect,” drinking and gulping on electrolytes water has definitely helped me stay better hydrated without hating on it and that, for me, is a win-win!
Have you tried electrolytes water yet? What do you think about it? What’s your choice of go-to water?
