Mineral water is such an important part of our busy lives. It helps us stay hydrated on the go. Did you know that 90% of the mineral water brands available online and in-store are packaged and RO purified water brands which are completely demineralised? RO is also known to cause anywhere from 75 - 90% water rejection. Even the World Health Organisation warns against drinking demineralised RO water, calling it detrimental to the environment and human health. Our body is 60% water, yet we pay so much attention to what we eat and not what we drink. We want the vegetables we eat to be organic and farmed, but what about the water that we are drinking? Should our water come from a remote area relatively untouched, made by Mother Nature, or an urban factory in the middle of a major city? Natural mineral water like Aava that's sourced from a protected underground aquifer is alive with the goodness of naturally-occuring minerals. Aava's essential minerals and electrolytes like calcium, magnesium, bicarbonates, sodium etc contribute to your overall health and wellness. Moreover, bottling Aava requires no RO, UV, Ionization or Ozonization so there is zero water rejection.Aava was western India's first natural mineral water under IS 13428 to launch in 2005. For the last 17 years, it has been internationally awarded and recognised as one of India's most premium natural mineral water brands and is served at the best hotels, airlines and institutions.

2. Every bottle of Aava Water saves 3 litres of bottled water.
Aava water is originally bacteria-free and mineral-rich hence it requires no RO, Ionization, Ozonization or UV Radiation. In reverse osmosis (RO), water is purified in a manner that filters out unwanted molecules, sediments and bacteria. But this also removes all the essential healthy minerals in the water. For every litre of packaged water purified using RO, 2 or more litres of water is wasted. In fact RO filters cause up to 74% water wastage.
3. Aava Mineral Water is a 100% natural, alkaline and healthy for you.
Studies show how the bioavailability of minerals from natural mineral water like Aava is good and can be compared with the values derived from milk. Aava's balanced natural composition of calcium, magnesium, sodium, silica, bicarbonates, sodium and alkaline pH 8 top up the health-boosting mineral reserves you ingest through a balanced diet. Aava's natural minerals protect heart health, mood and memory function, benefit bone density, aid digestion, reduce acidity, and could help prevent deficiencies that cause diseases such as osteoporosis, especially when supplemented with the right nutrition.
