We recently had the pleasure of sitting down for a chat with the director of Saka Water, Richard Ayoub.
Richard has been actively involved in the wellness industry since the late 80’s, after spending years researching water. Not only did he become an expert in the field, but he has also devoted his life to helping thousands of professionals and entrepreneurs to live the alkaline life that they truly deserved.
With his depth of knowledge about water and wellness, Richard tells us about his journey and some key tips on why choosing good quality water can enhance our lifestyle.
CAN YOU TELL US WHY YOU CHOSE TO GO INTO THE WATER INDUSTRY?
After my wife’s kidneys failed, I researched chronic disease, which led me to understand the importance of acid/alkaline balance in the body. After looking at many supplements and ways to do that, I realized we are mainly water and the quality of water we drink affects us in more ways than most people know. I spent over 2 years researching 1247 brands of water looking for the healthiest water on the planet and that’s how Saka Water came to Australia.
CAN YOU GIVE US A LITTLE INSIGHT TO HOW THIS KIND OF WATER IS DIFFERENT TO OTHERS?
Natural Alkaline Water has many benefits in the body, besides better hydration, it replenishes essential key minerals lost during the day and supports the body with a healthy alkaline balance. Our bodies run on electricity and we are simply made of minerals and water. Saka is simply Natural Mineral Water which provides your body what it needs to function optimally.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT FROM ALL THE OTHER BRANDS OF BOTTLED WATER?
Most brands of water are acidic and many are simply filtered tap water. These are ‘dead’ processed waters that don’t hydrate and satisfy your body. While most people have caught on to the benefits of Alkaline Water, sadly not many people understand the differences in water. More and more artificial alkaline waters are hitting the shelves. These waters again are not the same as Saka Water. Saka is created by Mother Nature with nothing added and nothing taken away. Anyone can tell the difference when they drink a sip of Saka Water and any other brand or type of water. Instantly they can taste and feel the difference and how much better Saka tastes and feels. Long term drinking of Saka Water provides best benefits.
After getting to know why Richard got into this industry, we can see just how important it is to not only stay hydrated but finding water that helps you with your health as well.
When anyone tells you that water is good for your body and keeps you hydrated, they are right. It is definitely more important to drink the right amount of water before worrying about the type of water. You can get dehydrated and sick if you are not drinking enough water. And the right amount of water to drink is 1 litre for every 22kg of your body weight.
Similar to food, the source of water we drink should be as close to natural as possible. The more it is processed, the less life giving it becomes. Here are some labels you should look for: Natural Mineral Water, Natural Artesian Water, Raw Water (if tested clean), Natural Spring Water, Alkaline Drinking Water, Purified Water, Table Water, Deionised or Demineralised Water, Potable Water, Distilled Water, Drinking Water and Sparkling Water.
There is a certain time of the day to drink water. Here are some important times you should drink water:
- Drink 500mL for men and 350mL for women when you get up. Squeeze a lemon in your water and it will alkaline your body.
- Drink 500mL about 20 minutes before lunch and dinner. This will help moisten your intestines and make it easy to digest your food. This also helps to prevent constipation.
- Drink about 500mL of water before going to bed and during the night. Your body needs water and minerals to repair itself. If you don’t drink water, the body will get the water from your brain which is around 85% water. This is the cause of most headaches and migraines. Drinking before going to bed will also help to reduce the risks of stroke or heart attack.
We got a lot of information from our chat with Richard and now know the importance of water in our own life and what it can do to bring us health and improve our immune system.
