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.

Mt. Shasta, the source of Castle Rock Water

Where does the tap water in Los Angeles come from, and how is it treated before it arrives at homes, schools, and businesses? That’s a question most people don’t ask because they take for granted the fact that water comes out of the faucet when they turn it on. Here’s a brief rundown of how the water gets to your home: According to the LA Country Water District, water is collected either from the ground or the Colorado River Aqueduct. The Colorado River Aqueduct stretches 240 miles from Lake Havasu on the California-Arizona border to Lake Mathews in Riverside County. The water, in its raw form, is unfit for human consumption and must be heavily treated before it arrives at the tap. Once it’s collected, the water is then disinfected and pumped into the distribution system. How is it disinfected? The LACWD says, “The imported water is generally treated using conventional treatment methods including coagulation, flocculation, sedimentation, filtration, and disinfection.” Here’s what those processes include: Coagulation: The coagulation process involves the addition of a chemical that is rapidly dissolved and distributed evenly throughout the water and causes particles in the water to cling together, or coagulate. Flocculation: Another chemical is added to the water, which is then sent through large paddles and slowly churned to further increase the size of the coagulated material. Sedimentation: After flocculation, the water and floc moves slowly through large basins known as sedimentation or settling basins. The water moves very slowly through these basins due to their large size. This allows the floc to settle to the bottom of the basin. The floc that falls to the bottom of the basins is collected into a hopper by large rotating scrapers where it is removed several times daily by the plant operators. Clear water above the floc layer flows out of the sedimentation basin and to the filters. Filtration: The filtration apparatus is a concrete box which contains sand (which does the filtering), gravel (which keeps the sand from getting out) and an underdrain(where the filtered water exits). After the filter is operated for a while, the sand becomes clogged with particles and must be backwashed. Flow through the filter is reversed and the sand and particles are suspended. The particles are lighter than the sand, so they rise up and are flushed from the system. When backwashing is complete, the sand settles down onto the gravel, flow is reversed and the process begins again. Disinfection: To prevent contamination with germs and bacteria, water companies add a disinfectant —usually either chlorine or chloramine— that kills disease-causing germs. Chlorine has been used to disinfect public drinking water supplies in the U.S. since 1908. Even with all this treatment, the water that arrives in homes isn’t always clean. It must travel through miles of pipes, many of them lead, and can pick up other chemicals and heavy metals that are bad for consumption. LA tap water has been found to contain: Once people learn about the process and the chemicals that end up in their water, they tend to switch to bottled water or investigate a home delivery option. In LA, many people are switching from tap water to Castle Rock Water, since no chemicals are used to treat the water and it only contains natural, beneficial minerals that the body needs to stay hydrated.
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.

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?
CRW Eco-friendly We’re constantly bombarded with messages about the importance of staying hydrated. Well, during summer months, anyway. In the warm season, the importance of drinking plenty of water is broadcast in TV news reports, on health blogs, and in sports training environments. Those reminders can be a little unnecessary because the summer heat can be all the reminder we need. When we’re hot, we get thirsty, and when we get thirsty we crave cold water. But what about the winter months? When the weather outside is cold, snowy, or just not as hot as it is in the middle of August, we can forget to drink enough water. Proper hydration in the winter is just as important as in the summer, but it’s rarely talked about. Skiers, and other people enjoying high-altitude winter recreation, need to be especially aware of their water intake. Dr. Scott Brandt, Medical Director at ThriveMD, said,
There are several factors that make visitors to moderately high altitudes very susceptible to dehydration. Above 6,000 feet, even at rest, you exhale and perspire twice as much as at sea level. This is amplified when enjoying vigorous activities such as skiing, hiking, biking, etc. Over the course of a day, this can amount to several liters of water loss. In addition, higher altitudes mean lower air pressure, which compounds the loss of moisture from evaporation from both the skin surface and the lungs. Add to that the extremely low humidity and it’s the perfect setup for unexpected dehydration.
Dehydration symptoms are often confused with altitude sickness, causing people to rush for canned oxygen when all they need is bottled water. There are also correlations between not getting enough water in the winter and the flu. Is it any coincidence that “flu season” also correlates to the season when people don’t drink enough water, increase their sugar intake, and decrease their activity levels? Staying properly hydrated is vital to a healthy existence. Water with natural electrolytes can fuel your cells with the nutrients and minerals they need to keep your body running at its best. As we make our way though winter, make sure you have plenty of Castle Rock Water readily available. Drinking the pure, living structured water will be exactly what your body needs to keep you feeling great through the winter months.
