castle_rock_water The right water can change everything.  That can be hard to believe because water is everywhere. It comes out of our taps, out of our shower heads, and we buy it in bottles. Water is just water… it’s as common as the air we breathe and we just don’t give it a second thought. When someone says that there’s a kind of water that’s different from other water, or water that can change lives, we tend to be more than a little skeptical. And rightfully so. Do some research though on living water versus dead water. Look into structured water that contains natural minerals and compare it against demineralized and filtered water. You’ll learn that there truly is a difference and that your body will benefit from drinking water that’s naturally sourced from Earth’s purest springs. Water that’s sucked out from underground aquifers or pumped out of rivers needs to be chemically altered and filtered before it’s ready to drink, and that process can be harmful to your health and to the planet. Living structured water is filled with naturally occurring minerals and is scientifically proven to be full of energy and life. Structured water directly affects how cells are nourished. Reverse osmosis and the treatment that tap water receives deplete those natural components and creates “dead” water because it removes water’s structure and thus its life-giving vitality. Structured water happens when the water is free to flow through nature, is naturally filtered, and is not manipulated or treated by people. Castle Rock Water is a prime example of structured water. Castle Rock is glacier-fed natural spring water that is never processed. The water source is sustainable and the glaciers, high atop Mt. Shasta, are growing.  On top of all of that, Castle Rock proudly has the IMO “For Life- Social Responsibility” certification, which means we treat our employees and the environment right while paying a fair price to the community that owns the springs. 
 Think about this: Castle Rock Water is the only bottled water company in the world that is fairly dealing with our natural resources. If every company that takes natural resources from the earth would pay fairly for them, our government could be paid for and we could have a country with much lower taxes.  Castle Rock Water is making a stand to show it’s possible and, as small as we are, we have already paid close to $500,000. The big four bottled water companies in the United States currently pay nothing. If they paid the same as we do, each would give 500 million dollars, for each bottling plant, to the local governments and bring taxes down substantially. That’s billions of dollars going unpaid.  Castle Rock Water is bottled water done right and we hope more companies follow our lead. It’s the right thing to do. Plus, Castle Rock Water is consistently named as one of the best tasting bottled waters in the world. It’s water that’s better for your body, and better for the planet.  Have you tried Castle Rock Water yet?
RO As the tap water crisis continues to spread across America, many people are turning to the installation of reverse osmosis water filtration systems in their homes. Reverse osmosis promises a pure water that’s suitable for drinking, and of course the resulting water is indeed purified. However, we should look at the definition of reverse osmosis to truly understand what we are getting when we drink it. Reverse osmosis, commonly referred to as RO, is a process where water is demineralized by pushing it under pressure through a semi-permeable membrane. There’s a key word here: demineralized. One of water’s greatest benefits is hidden in the total dissolved solids that are in good quality drinking water. Minerals and electrolytes such as sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, chloride, and calcium are essential to a healthy body. Reverse osmosis removes them completely. In fact, according to a research study we mentioned last month, drinking reverse osmosis water not only resulted in the decreased intake of vital minerals, it actually increased the elimination of sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, and magnesium ions from the body. Reverse osmosis water was proven in that study to lose its taste qualities and not quench thirst like a natural mineral water would. The study also highlights the importance of calcium and magnesium and says that people who drink demineralized water may be become deficient in those minerals when their diets fail to provide the required daily intake. Drinking natural mineral water may make up for that deficiency. For about 50 years, studies in many countries all over the world have reported that water low in calcium and magnesium is associated with increased morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease (CVD) compared to water high in magnesium. While it’s true that drinking reverse osmosis water will remove impurities dangerous to the human body, it also removes minerals vital to the body’s health and survival. Don’t just take our word for it, read the study, do your own research, and decide for yourself.  The best drinking water is one with natural minerals and healthy electrolytes that hasn’t undergone filtration or other chemical processes to make it fit for consumption. Castle Rock Water is one of the few bottled water brands on the market that meets all of the standards for being a whole, living, healthy water that tastes great and hydrates naturally. Instead of reverse osmosis, think Castle Rock Water.  
nature copy It’s summertime in the Unites States and that means people are getting outside with their boats, picnic blankets, and camping gear. Whatever your outdoor activity of choice this season might be, make sure you stay hydrated in the summer heat with the right kind of water. You might assume that any water will keep you hydrated, and the “right” kind of water is the kind that is wet. Here’s the thing, though: not all water is the same. Water from the tap can contain harmful chemicals or simply lack the essential minerals and electrolytes your body needs. Castle Rock Water is especially essential in the summer because it’s an alkaline, natural whole water. What does that mean? Our water is not artificially filtered, treated, or modified in any way. It contains natural minerals including magnesium, sodium, potassium, and chloride; minerals your body uses fast and needs to replace in the summer heat. Unlike other bottled waters, Castle Rock Water comes from crisp mountain streams that originate high in the glaciers of Mt. Shasta. That water is renowned globally for its exceptional purity and taste. This summer, as you explore the beautiful natural areas this country has to offer, make sure your bring a water that is as pure as the lands you’re exploring. Your body needs it.      
Shasta water Clean drinking water is essential to life. In the United States, and in other western countries, we take for granted that our water is always clean and fresh. Recent news has proven otherwise, which has resulted in more people investing in at-home reverse osmosis water filtration. The claims are that reverse osmosis produces a perfectly pure drinking water, but is it as safe as people think? Reverse osmosis essentially strips water of everything, good and bad. That means that beneficial minerals in water are also removed. According to a research study published by the World Health Organization and conducted by the National Institute of Public Health in the Czech Republic, reverse osmosis water can have direct effects on the intestinal mucous membrane, metabolism, and mineral homeostasis or other body functions. Low-mineral water can also mean reduced intake of calcium and magnesium, in addition to other essential elements and microelements. Those losses can also transfer to food prepared with reverse osmosis water.  Since reverse osmosis water is stripped of all dissolved solids, it is more likely to leech chemicals from whatever it touches. That means toxic metals from pipes could potentially end up in the body.  The study concludes by saying,
Demineralised water that has not been remineralized, or low-mineral content water – in the light of the absence or substantial lack of essential minerals in it – is not considered ideal drinking water, and therefore, its regular consumption may not be providing adequate levels of some beneficial nutrients.
In future blog posts, we’ll look at the specific effects of reverse osmosis water on the body. In the meantime, people are better off drinking water that has natural minerals and beneficial elements that hasn’t been purified or treated in any way. Look for natural spring water, bottled in glass, that comes from mountain glaciers and is filtered naturally before being bottled.
Earth Today is Earth Day. Celebrated every April 22, events worldwide are held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first celebrated in 1970, and is now coordinated globally by the Earth Day Network. At least 193 countries celebrate each year. But what does it mean to celebrate Earth Day? At Castle Rock Water, we prefer not to focus on a specific day to celebrate and treasure our planet. We do so every April 22, but also extend that celebration to each of the remaining 364 days in the year. As a bottled water company, we are determined to show the rest of industry how to bottle responsibly and how to devote resources to protecting our precious Earth. Here’s how we are addressing some of the problems faced by our planet:   Responsible use of resources: It’s an ironic truth that most bottled water companies do not take action to protect the environment in which they operate. Unfortunately, nor do they give back to their local communities or pay for the water that they extract from the earth. One of the largest bottled water companies, in fact, has caused controversy by pumping hundreds of millions of gallons of water out of California with a permit that expired about 30 years ago. That issue has resulted in lawsuits and boycotts of the company’s water products. Situations like this are why people want change in the bottled water industry. There are currently no laws saying that any company is required to pay for water that it extracts. Even so, Castle Rock Water, a small family owned business, has chosen to pioneer new ways of bottling water. That’s why our company pays a fair price to its community for the water it uses, and one of the reasons we have earned the coveted “For Life – Social Responsibility” certification from the IMO. Natural health: Since we’re all living beings on Earth, it’s important to nourish our bodies with the purest hydration possible. From glacier to bottle, Castle Rock Water goes completely untouched by human hands to ensure a premium quality product. Our water contains naturally occurring minerals and trace elements, no added artificial chemicals or nutrients. Our water, unlike our competitors, contains naturally structured living water, the way nature intended it to be. Industry change: Castle Rock Water is one of very few bottled water companies in the world that is fairly dealing with our natural resources. If every company that takes natural resources from the earth would pay fairly for them, our government could be paid for and we could have a tax-free country. Castle Rock Water is making a stand to show it’s possible and, as small as we are, we have already paid close to $500,000 to our local communities. The big four bottled water companies in the United States currently pay nothing. If they paid the same rate that we do, each would give 500 million dollars, for each bottling plant, to the local governments and could bring taxes down substantially. Charitable donations: Castle Rock Water Company coexists with its employees, nature, and its community. The company has donated to many non-profit organizations such as Charity: Water, Living Water International, Walk with MADD, Unlikely Hero’s, and many more local charities. When you purchase Castle Rock Water, you’re not contributing to a massive corporation’s bottom line. Your purchase of Castle Rock Water supports a small company’s efforts to enlighten peoples knowledge of how important it is to know what we put into our bodies. Your purchase supports local communities and provides jobs and resources to local areas. You also happen to get the best bottled water in the world. As a consumer, you can choose to be part of the problem or one of the people working toward a solution. We hope you’ll join us in our commitment to keep our world as pure as our water.   
CRW falls copy Reading news that water is good for you won’t shock anyone. Ever since we were kids, we were told to drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to stay properly hydrated. The official recommendation varies depending on the age and activity level of every person, not to mention the kind of climate they live in. Since the vast majority of the human body consists of water, one of the best things we can do to keep it healthy is drink plenty of- you guessed it- water. So if the health benefits of water are so obvious, why are we spending time writing about it? Because there’s another benefit to drinking water, specifically living structured water, that may be slightly less known: The more water you drink, the younger you’ll look. ABC News ran a story with this quote from Dr. Richard Besser, “If you get dehydrated, your body is going to pull water from your tissues, from your skin to maintain the concentration in your blood. When it does that, your eyes are going to look sunken, your skin is going to feel dryer, it’s not going to be as elastic and so you will look a lot older.” It turns out the secret to youthful, radiant skin that glows could be as simple as drinking upwards of 60 ounces of water every day. When your body is properly hydrated, blood circulation can better transport necessary nutrients to all body cells, making you feel and look better. Additionally, water helps eliminate toxins from the body and impurities from the skin. Well-hydrated skin will result in a healthy and glowing complexion. So where does living structured water come in? Not all water is created equal. Structured water is water in its purest form, straight from nature. A University of Washington doctor studied the benefits of structured water and determined that:
This water has measurably different characteristics including: molecular stability, a negative electrical charge, greater viscosity, molecular alignment, and an enhanced ability to absorb certain spectra of light. But here’s the biggest point: He and others have provided evidence that the liquid crystalline phase of water is intimately connected with the generation of life. Basically, this means that structured water has more potential for enhancing hydration and cell-to-cell communication.
If you’re going to drink more water for the purpose of achieving better skin and better overall health, doesn’t it make sense to drink the highest quality water you can find? Living structured water hydrates better and could be exactly what you, and your skin, are looking for.
FrackingWaterGraphic We’ve spent a lot of time here looking at the quality of drinking water from taps across the country. From Michigan to Ohio, New Jersey to Washington, across California and more, poisonous tap water is being found all across the United States. That’s one of the reasons health-conscious people are switching to home delivery of drinking water. Water that comes from a reputable source and is untouched by humans is far more desirable, and trusted, than water that comes from mysterious sources and is treated with harsh chemicals. Sometimes water is tainted at treatment facilities, sometimes in the pipes that enter your home, and sometimes in the ground before it’s pumped into residential and commercial wells. That’s becoming the case in the midwest as fracking operations grow. An investigation by Stanford scientists finds that hydraulic fracturing did indeed pollute an underground source of drinking water used by people who live near Pavillion, Wyoming, according to a paper published this week in Environmental Science and Technology. One article says,
The new research shows that gas wells were not adequately cemented to prevent contaminants from flowing into the aquifer. It also shows that in some cases, hydraulic fracturing and acid stimulation of gas wells took place at depths similar to private drinking water wells, which is not illegal and is more likely to happen in the West because the formations that hold the gas are closer to the surface.
Not only do we have to worry about lead in our municipal drinking water, now we have to beware of chemical compounds and gas in our well water. When water is as nature intended, it’s pure, clean, and fresh. That’s the kind of water our bodies thrive on. Drinking the best water leads to better health and overall vitality, while overly-treated water can lose its health benefits and even have negative consequences. Why take the chance? Consider having fresh water delivered right to your home for drinking. Just click here for more information.

Shasta_american There’s a common misperception that bottled water imported from other countries is superior to U.S.-sourced water. Water imported from Fiji, France, Italy, and Norway is perceived to be more exotic, more pure, and better-tasting. What many people don’t know is that the best-tasting water in the world comes from right here in America. Castle Rock Water is born high in the glaciers of Mt. Shasta in Northern California and won the gold medal at the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting Competition, which names the best-tasting water in the world. Our blog series explores the importance of where your water comes from, large corporate bottlers versus small family owned bottlers, imported water, the social and environmental responsibilities of water bottlers, and how Castle Rock Water stands out in the mass of bottlers.

CRW-best water There’s a giant misconception that imported bottled water is far superior to U.S.-sourced bottled water.  Why is that? Imported water comes from places such as Fiji, Germany, Italy, and Norway.  Why, though, does it make sense to bottle water and ship it around the world? Imported bottled water accounts for about $130 million in sales in the United States. That’s tens of millions of bottles that are put on container ships and sent across oceans so U.S. consumers can make the purchase and send their money back the country where the water originated. Consumers continue to do this because they’ve found that imported brands taste better than the filtered tap water found in America. The truth, though, is that consumers don’t have to look across any oceans to find one of the best-tasting bottled waters in the entire world. Water connoisseurs in the United States are starting to learn that supporting the import of artisan water just doesn’t make a lot of sense because there’s a better-tasting domestic water that is popular among pro athletes, celebrities, and health-conscious people across the country. Every year, Castle Rock Water competes in the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting Competition. Bottled water companies from around the world compete for the title of Best Tasting Water in the World. Castle Rock Water won the gold medal in 2014, silver in 2015, and was also named the best tasting sparkling water in all of North America last year. Why does Castle Rock Water taste so good? That’s a long story that begins at the top of Mt. Shasta where water collects in glaciers. Meltwater from the glaciers flows into cracks and ancient lave tubes in the mountain, where it spends the next 100-10,000 years slowly filtering through the mountain. Along its journey the water picks up vital nutrients and minerals. The water moves constantly during that time and never sits stagnant. When it finally exits the mountain in energetic streams, the water is charged with vitality and living structure. It’s also exceptionally clean and pure. Castle Rock Water has a gravity-fed bottling facility that collects this raw, pure water and bottles it in glass. It’s never touched by humans and never altered from its original form. The water you drink from Castle Rock Water’s glass bottles is the very same water that you’d drink from the pure streams on Mt. Shasta. With the best-tasting water in world right here in your own backyard, why look anywhere else?
