Picture with colloidal silver

Perhaps you have already heard about the alkaline water craze. According to its proponents, this type of water has more benefits than regular tap water. The research available to date seems to support these claims, but the truth is that at the moment, only natural alkaline water is a safe substitute for tap water.

The main difference between natural alkaline water and the artificial kind is the method through which it is obtained.

Natural alkaline water, as its name implies, is alkaline at the source. Its pH level is the result of high content of healthy minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium, to name just a few.

Natural Alkaline Water Colloids

Artificial alkaline water is obtained from any kind of water through a process called electrolysis. It may or may not contain minerals depending on the nutrient content of the water used, and it could even be contaminated when obtained from unfiltered well water.

With this in mind, it is clear why natural alkaline water is the safest and healthiest choice. Furthermore, apart from the minerals mentioned above, natural mineral water can also contain some surprising – and healthy – elements able to enhance its properties. Here are three of them.

1. Colloidal Silver

Alkaline Water with Colloidal Silver

Historically, silver has been widely used across civilizations for an array of different purposes. Ranging from jewelry, tableware and fine cutlery, silver was always considered to positively affect the health of users of all ages.

Silver Nanoparticles (or colloidal silver) are defined as solid silver particles with a size in the range of 10-100 nm dispersed in a liquid environment. These particles represent a promising candidate for extended research as microbicides due to their effectiveness in small doses with minimal toxicity and side effects.[1]

Perhaps you already know that silver is one of the most powerful antibacterial agents. It helped ancient nobles deal with outbreaks of cholera and other nasty diseases in an era when antibiotics were not yet a thing.

AgNPs are attractive because they are non-toxic to the human body at low concentrations and have broad-spectrum antibacterial actions[2].

In fact, it is well known that Ag+ ions and Ag-based compounds are toxic to microorganisms, possessing strong biocidal effects on at least 12 species of bacteria[3]

For this reason, some people claim that colloidal silver supplements can enhance your immune system and help your body fight a number of diseases, from common colds to cancer.

Some studies name Silver Nanoparticles as Virucidal Agents as they act directly and rapidly rupture the viral membrane. Nevertheless, the interaction of AgNPs with viruses is still an unexplored field.[4]

While some doctors advise against taking colloidal silver by mouth, scientists agree that small quantities of this metal have no harmful effect and are safe to ingest.

2. Colloidal Gold

Gold is another element one wouldn’t expect to find in drinking water, and that is more renowned for jewelry making rather than its health benefits. Nevertheless, colloidal gold has been studied by many scientists and researchers found that it enhances the immune system function.

Gold could help fight inflammation and improves the transmission between nerve cells. As such, it is a great supplement in the treatment of joint pain, arthritis, rheumatoid disorders, and also to boost your memory and concentration.

Colloidal gold also has a soothing effect and provides stress relief; thus, it is widely used to treat depression and anxiety.

3. Silicon

One of the most abundant materials in the earth’s crust, silicon is often found in natural alkaline water in the form of silica. This mineral plays a crucial role in helping our body eliminate aluminum.

Aluminum is an allegedly non-toxic metal that we can find in many foods, pharmaceuticals, and beauty products. However, research has found that aluminum intoxication can lead to dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and it may also be linked to autism.

Natural Water With Silicon

According to several studies, drinking silica-rich water aids the human body to eliminate the aluminum, protecting you from all the undesirable side effects this metal could have.

Natural alkaline water, such as Aur’s Gold, is much more than mere water with a higher pH level than the regular stuff. It is a source of valuable minerals as well as other elements that can enhance your overall wellbeing. A more than valid reason to start drinking it.

We’ve all heard about wine sommeliers. Any respected winery or restaurant employs them.

Many know what beer sommeliers are, too. But have you ever heard of water sommeliers?

As intriguing as it may seem, this is a real job – and an interesting one, as Claudia Benea, the first water sommelier in Romania, tells us.

How did you become a water sommelier?

Nothing is accidental in life. Everything happens for a reason and somehow at the right time.

Halfway through life, I happened to receive a challenge in a completely new sector for me at the time, which became the most extraordinary adventure of my life.

It was the spring of 2017 when I was offered the opportunity to become the representative of a unique water company, Aur’a.

It was a sort of love at first sight and I took the step without hesitation, swapping professional spheres completely – from legal to food and beverage.

Several factors influenced my choice. On the one hand, the story of water, a new world, a particular industry and extraordinary people. On the other hand, my open, curious, adventurous nature.

Admittedly, it was like a reset.

My new professional journey involved water studies, hours of courses, and reading countless books.

That’s how I first learned about water sommeliers such as Martin Riese, perhaps the most famous water sommelier in the world, as well as other people who share this special passion.

I began my own research, took some surveys in the hospitality industry, and came to the conclusion that in Romania, there is little knownledge about water, despite it being such an essential element for our existence.

Moreover, I also found that Romania had no water sommelier and that’s what made me decide this was the way to go.

Subsequently, I attended a sommelier course (FNDA), obtained my Aqua Sommelier diploma and became the first woman in Romania to work as a water sommelier besides becoming part of Aur’a water team.

What does being a water sommelier mean?

Thirst is universal. When you are thirsty, a simple sip of water sends you on a journey; it opens up a story.

Simply put, a water sommelier is a specialist in mineral waters who has acquired, through study and practice, the ability to recognize and distinguish the various aromas as well as the mineral properties of water.

An Aqua Sommelier can recommend the right pairing between food and mineral water, and also between water and wine or other beverages.

As it happens with wine, a good pairing of the water with a dish can enhance the flavor of the food, no matter how simple or sophisticated it may be.

It is also amazing how taste perceptions can change significantly for wines and spirits in combination with the right water. Moreover, that’s where the sommelier steps in, recognizing the identity of the water and suggesting the best pairings.

What are the similarities and differences with wine sommeliers?

Like wine, mineral water is closely linked to the territory of origin. Its taste can vary almost as much as the taste of wine.

Various wines can complement different dishes. Likewise, the right still or sparkling water can add flavor when paired with the right meals.

It’s easier with wine. The aromas of fruits or spices are specific and you can quickly identify them through smell. On the other hand, tasting water can be tiring.

The sommelier must recognize the water and classify it on much more intuitive elements, such as the smell of earth, stone, forest and so on.

However, each water has a unique imprint and taste, with exciting shades. Tasting is about sense, and both wine and water sommeliers educate their senses by tasting as many varieties as possible.

How widespread is this profession worldwide?

In my opinion, it is not as widespread as it should be, especially since water is the most consumed beverage globally.

Some countries brag with a water culture, with specialists and specialized water stores, as well as international competitions. Romania certainly doesn’t fall into this category.

Our country has exceptional quality water, but a less-educated group of consumers. People ordering water in a restaurant usually only make one distinction – either still or sparkling.

Romania is home to 60 percent of Europe’s mineral springs; it is a country with extraordinary resources and enormous potential.

I think the role of aqua sommeliers will increase in the following years as the health benefits of hydration and the part of premium water in the luxury market will expand.

What to consider when choosing a particular water?

Water is an essential beverage. Yet, most people think that water is just water, that it has no smell or taste.

Drinking water is not just about quenching thirst, though. Water incorporates a variety of flavors given by its minerals and other precious compounds.

It is also important to remember that water must be suitable for one’s health. For example, water with a high concentration of salt is not ideal for people suffering from high blood pressure or kidney diseases.

You must also pay attention to how you balance a meal.
Alkaline water pairs perfectly with hearty meals, enhancing the aroma of food and drinks. Highly mineralized water is more appropriate for vegetarian or vegan diets.

Unlike plain spring water, still or carbonated mineral water originating from an underground aquifer deposit captures its qualities deep underground.

This ensures its stability, temperature and constant content of mineral salts, regardless of the weather conditions on the surface.

This type of water brings an important contribution of natural minerals to your body. People need to learn to read the label before choosing their water.

Which is your favorite from all the waters in the world?

There are over 5,000 different water brands on this planet and they all taste differently. From very smooth notes, almost silky and sweet, to very complex, slightly bitter and salty depending on the pH and amount of minerals.

Over the years, I tasted many types of water, and don’t necessarily have a favorite.

One I particularly like is Iskilde, water that comes from an artesian spring in a conservation area in Denmark. It isn’t carbonated, but it has an exceptionally high content of oxygen because it passes through an air bubble in the ground on its way to the spring.

When the water is poured, the oxygen dissipates as the pressure in the bottle drops, causing the formation of bubbles that turn the water cloudy when the glass is shaken — a complex and spectacular chemical process.

But Aur’a remains my favorite water for its uniqueness, for its refined taste and because it’s natural, not to mention it has shown me that there are new and unexpected horizons.

It is fascinating what happens in the glass immediately after opening a bottle.

What is the best shape for a water glass?

Regardless of the beverage, it is necessary that the glass in which it is served can shape the aroma and all other qualities of the drink in the best possible way.

I use wine glasses to taste water. The wine glass is designed to enhance the taste profile of a wine, so there is nothing wrong with using the same glass for water too.

What is the purest water in the world? Glacier water or the industrially purified and bottled water?

Glacier water collected from precipitation is considered the purest. This water is collected and melted under strict purity guidelines to preserve its natural qualities.

The result is water practically untouched by mankind, with little to no traces of minerals.

Table water can come from deep wells, or it can be microbiologically purified. Then, there are deionized waters, distilled waters, water purified through reverse osmosis; all these are processed, mineral-free waters.

Chlorine remains the main solution for the sanitation of municipal water, which has little to no minerals.

On the other hand, mineral and spring waters from natural sources are internationally acclaimed for their mineral composition as the water runs through the ground. These are Mother Nature’s healthy, valuable minerals.

Nutritionists argue that it is not good to drink water during a meal. How else can you do a water pairing?

Opinions are divided between nutritionists and doctors. Some argue that you can drink water during meals, others are totally against it.

After thorough research on the subject, I found that from a digestive point of view, the amount of water ingested during a meal does not influence the concentration of digestive juices.

I recommend drinking water between the dishes because it makes you feel full faster, and at the same time, it cleanses the palate from one meal to the other. In this way, you can enjoy each flavor more.

What is the most exciting part of the aqua sommelier profession, and which is the least pleasant?

Water can be salty, sweet, smooth, fruity, sophisticated, metallic.

The fascinating part of being an aqua sommelier is the ability to pair different types of water with the right dishes, and also with other drinks – a pairing that is always a challenge.

The taste of water has a significant impact on everything you have on the plate or in other glasses.

The least pleasant part is that people hardly understand the role of an aqua sommelier.

Most customers are skeptical; they don’t understand the role of water for health and are not concerned about discovering new things, such as finding out how to pair water with food and other beverages.

However, once you manage to capture their attention, they are fascinated by the fact that a drink with no color or smell can have such a distinctive taste, a thing to which they never paid attention before.

How is water classified?

Like I said before, many people believe that there are only two types of water, sparkling or still. However, water has a very complex classification.

To avoid confusion, I can tell you that all waters are mineral. The main difference is the content of carbon dioxide.

In Romania, water can only be called mineral if its source is registered with the National Agency for Mineral Resources (ANRM). If the source isn’t registered, the producers cannot use the word mineral in the name, so they have to classify it either as spring or table water.

Returning to the content, non-carbonated mineral water – known as still water – doesn’t contain more carbon dioxide than needed to dissolve the carbonated hydrogen salts in its composition in its natural state, and in all cases, no more than 250mg/L.

Carbonated mineral water has naturally occurring carbonation. Artificially carbonated water contains a certain amount of carbon dioxide that has been artificially added to the water.

This is a brief overview. There is much more to be said; however, people need to understand that each water has its mineral richness given by the soil through which the water flows.

The choice a consumer makes is clearly influenced by taste, health, financial possibilities, and education. Or so it should.

Many even try to make a comparison between water and wine, but this is impossible for me. The two beverages come from two different worlds. I like wine, but water will always be first for me.

After all, it is our source of life, a source we shouldn’t waste but honor and recognize.

We’ve all heard about wine sommeliers. Any respected winery or restaurant employs them.

Many know what beer sommeliers are, too. But have you ever heard of water sommeliers?

6 Surprising Ways Alkaline Water Helps You Lose Weight https://naturalgoldwater.com/news/weight-loss https://naturalgoldwater.com/news/weight-loss#respond Thu, 07 Nov 2019 12:17:36 +0000 https://naturalgoldwater.com/?p=252374 The post 6 Surprising Ways Alkaline Water Helps You Lose Weight appeared first on Aura - Alkaline Gold Water.

]]>

In the past years, celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lopez, and even Elton John have replaced plain drinking water with alkaline water for one reason or another.

It may sound like a fancy trend, but natural alkaline water really is healthier than its regular counterpart. Among its many benefits, it can even help you lose weight.

So, whether you’re dealing with a few extra pounds or fight severe obesity, here are six surprising ways alkaline water can help you get rid of that excess fat.

1. Alkaline water can boost your metabolism

The easiest way to lose weight without too much effort is by increasing your metabolic rate, or the rate at which your body burns calories.

A higher metabolic rate means your body can burn unnecessary fat regardless of whether you’re awake or asleep.

According to a study published in the Obesity Journal, drinking water is associated with weight loss independent of diet and activity.

Cold alkaline water can have even higher benefits; indeed, another study shows that drinking cold water enhances thermogenesis, which means your body burns more calories.

While researchers observed the effects of water in general, studies made on alkaline water suggest it is a healthier choice than plain water due to its higher pH level.

With this in mind, drinking one or two glasses of natural alkaline water 30 minutes before your meals, is a great way to promote weight loss.

2. It can stop your cravings

Regardless of how fast or slow your metabolism is, overeating will never have positive effects when you try to lose weight. The main reason many diets fail is cravings.

When you follow a strict, low-calorie diet, resisting those tasty fats and greasy foods is near impossible unless you let alkaline water help you.

The secret is drinking a glass or two of natural alkaline water every time you feel like you’re going to succumb to temptation.

You should also know that more often than not, we can’t tell the difference between thirst and hunger. In other words, you might accidentally feel that you’re hungry even if, in reality, you’re just thirsty.

Hydrating yourself is a great way to feel full and satisfied without ingesting unnecessary calories.

3. Alkaline water rehydrates you faster

At first glance, staying hydrated and losing weight don’t have a lot in common. Considering that the path to quick weight loss is made from a low-calorie diet and exercise, hydration plays a crucial role.

The mechanism is simple. Dehydration leads to fatigue. If you feel tired and sluggish, chances are you’ll have poor performance at the gym – hoping you’ll still have enough energy to hit the gym in the first place.

Proper hydration is key to proper training and improved performance, and one recent study published in the PLoS One journal shows that athletes drinking alkaline water were able to rehydrate themselves faster than those drinking plain water.

This happens because of the minerals and electrolytes present in alkaline water. If you want to enjoy the most benefits, drinking natural alkaline water rich in these substances could be a better choice than consuming artificial alkaline water, which may have scarcer nutritional values.

4. It supports your digestive tract

Besides fatigue, dehydration also leads to a dry colon, the leading cause of bloating and constipation. Two conditions that may hinder all your efforts of achieving a flat, toned tummy.

Regular consumption of alkaline water enhances colon lubrication and ensures its proper functioning.

Not only you won’t feel bloated, but a healthy colon can also flush out all chemicals and toxins that can damage your digestive tract.

For the best results, you should cut off on fatty foods, consume lots of leafy greens, and support the proper function of your digestive tract with alkaline water.

5. It improves your muscle function

Another way adequate hydration can help you lose weight is by improving your joint and muscle function.

Indeed, dehydration often leads to tight, sore joints. Inflammation and joint pain don’t pair very well with a daily exercise routine.

On the contrary, proper hydration keeps your joints lubricated, reducing inflammation and pain.

Studies also showed that proper hydration boosts performance when executing aerobic exercises.

Refreshing yourself with alkaline water before, during, and after your workout can increase your workout benefits, with subsequent weight loss.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that joint pain can also be triggered by improper warming up before training. To prevent joint and muscle damage, always do some stretching before and after a workout.

6. Alkaline water rebalances your body’s pH levels

Perhaps the most crucial benefit alkaline water brings when trying to lose weight is rebalancing your body’s pH levels.

The human body requires slightly alkaline conditions to work well.

Body fat is somewhat acidic, and it contributes to acidifying your body.

By drinking alkaline water regularly, you can restore a healthy pH level, which decreases the acidity and helps burn fat through a series of neutralization reactions.

A simple way to achieve this is by replacing your weekend Margaritas with a glass or two of natural alkaline water that not only tastes heavenly, but that can help you shed off that unhealthy fat.

While there is no miracle formula to help you lose weight instantly, drinking natural alkaline water, such as Aur’a, can speed up the process and aid your efforts.

In the end, the secret to a thinner, healthier body is combining proper hydration with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise. No doubt, this is the best way to lose weight fast.

In the past years, celebrities such as Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Lopez, and even Elton John have replaced plain drinking water with alkaline water for one reason or another.

It may sound like a fancy trend, but natural alkaline water really is healthier than its regular counterpart. Among its many benefits, it can even help you lose weight.

So, whether you’re dealing with a few extra pounds or fight severe obesity, here are six surprising ways alkaline water can help you get rid of that excess fat.

1. Alkaline water can boost your metabolism

The easiest way to lose weight without too much effort is by increasing your metabolic rate, or the rate at which your body burns calories.

A higher metabolic rate means your body can burn unnecessary fat regardless of whether you’re awake or asleep.

According to a study published in the Obesity Journal, drinking water is associated with weight loss independent of diet and activity.

Cold alkaline water can have even higher benefits; indeed, another study shows that drinking cold water enhances thermogenesis, which means your body burns more calories.

While researchers observed the effects of water in general, studies made on alkaline water suggest it is a healthier choice than plain water due to its higher pH level.

With this in mind, drinking one or two glasses of natural alkaline water 30 minutes before your meals, is a great way to promote weight loss.

2. It can stop your cravings

Regardless of how fast or slow your metabolism is, overeating will never have positive effects when you try to lose weight. The main reason many diets fail is cravings.

When you follow a strict, low-calorie diet, resisting those tasty fats and greasy foods is near impossible unless you let alkaline water help you.

The secret is drinking a glass or two of natural alkaline water every time you feel like you’re going to succumb to temptation.

You should also know that more often than not, we can’t tell the difference between thirst and hunger. In other words, you might accidentally feel that you’re hungry even if, in reality, you’re just thirsty.

Hydrating yourself is a great way to feel full and satisfied without ingesting unnecessary calories.

3. Alkaline water rehydrates you faster

At first glance, staying hydrated and losing weight don’t have a lot in common. Considering that the path to quick weight loss is made from a low-calorie diet and exercise, hydration plays a crucial role.

The mechanism is simple. Dehydration leads to fatigue. If you feel tired and sluggish, chances are you’ll have poor performance at the gym – hoping you’ll still have enough energy to hit the gym in the first place.

Proper hydration is key to proper training and improved performance, and one recent study published in the PLoS One journal shows that athletes drinking alkaline water were able to rehydrate themselves faster than those drinking plain water.

This happens because of the minerals and electrolytes present in alkaline water. If you want to enjoy the most benefits, drinking natural alkaline water rich in these substances could be a better choice than consuming artificial alkaline water, which may have scarcer nutritional values.

4. It supports your digestive tract

Besides fatigue, dehydration also leads to a dry colon, the leading cause of bloating and constipation. Two conditions that may hinder all your efforts of achieving a flat, toned tummy.

Regular consumption of alkaline water enhances colon lubrication and ensures its proper functioning.

Not only you won’t feel bloated, but a healthy colon can also flush out all chemicals and toxins that can damage your digestive tract.

For the best results, you should cut off on fatty foods, consume lots of leafy greens, and support the proper function of your digestive tract with alkaline water.

5. It improves your muscle function

Another way adequate hydration can help you lose weight is by improving your joint and muscle function.

Indeed, dehydration often leads to tight, sore joints. Inflammation and joint pain don’t pair very well with a daily exercise routine.

On the contrary, proper hydration keeps your joints lubricated, reducing inflammation and pain.

Studies also showed that proper hydration boosts performance when executing aerobic exercises.

Refreshing yourself with alkaline water before, during, and after your workout can increase your workout benefits, with subsequent weight loss.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that joint pain can also be triggered by improper warming up before training. To prevent joint and muscle damage, always do some stretching before and after a workout.

6. Alkaline water rebalances your body’s pH levels

Perhaps the most crucial benefit alkaline water brings when trying to lose weight is rebalancing your body’s pH levels.

The human body requires slightly alkaline conditions to work well.

Body fat is somewhat acidic, and it contributes to acidifying your body.

By drinking alkaline water regularly, you can restore a healthy pH level, which decreases the acidity and helps burn fat through a series of neutralization reactions.

A simple way to achieve this is by replacing your weekend Margaritas with a glass or two of natural alkaline water that not only tastes heavenly, but that can help you shed off that unhealthy fat.

While there is no miracle formula to help you lose weight instantly, drinking natural alkaline water, such as Aur’a, can speed up the process and aid your efforts.

In the end, the secret to a thinner, healthier body is combining proper hydration with a low-calorie diet and regular exercise. No doubt, this is the best way to lose weight fast.

Natural Alkaline Water vs. Artificial Alkaline Water – The Real Difference Between the Two https://naturalgoldwater.com/news/natural-vs-artificial-alkaline-water https://naturalgoldwater.com/news/natural-vs-artificial-alkaline-water#respond Wed, 09 Oct 2019 15:36:49 +0000 https://naturalgoldwater.com/?p=248624 The post Natural Alkaline Water vs. Artificial Alkaline Water – The Real Difference Between the Two appeared first on Aura - Alkaline Gold Water.

]]>

Alkaline water is widely acclaimed for its various health benefits. It can allegedly regulate your body’s pH level, slow down the aging process, and even prevent chronic diseases, including cancer.

While all this is true, not all alkaline water was created equal. There is a huge difference between natural alkaline water vs. artificial alkaline water. Before joining the hype, you must learn which one to drink and why.

What Is Alkaline Water?

Alkaline water is water with a pH of 8 or 9, slightly more alkaline than the normal pH of drinking water, which is typically 7 (neutral).

According to research, alkaline water can neutralize the acid in your body, it has colon-cleansing properties, and it regularizes blood pressure, the level of lipids in blood as well as the level of sugars.

Studies have been conducted on both natural and ionized (artificial) alkaline water, and while both have potential health benefits, the latter can produce some serious side effects when consumed as drinking water daily over a long period of time.

Natural Alkaline Water vs. Artificial Alkaline Water

The gist of alkaline water is that all water can be called alkaline as long as its pH is higher than 7.5-8. However, there is a huge difference between natural alkaline and artificial alkaline water.

Indeed, the latter is obtained through a process of ionization during which electrolytes are either added or depleted to achieve the alkaline pH of the liquid.

While the electrolysis process can alter the water’s pH, it can’t add or remove any minerals. Thus, the healthful properties of this water really come into question.

Natural alkaline water, such as Aur’a, has a chemical makeup that’s vastly different from the artificial one and contains a wealth of minerals. These minerals get into the water as it flows down the mountain, and its pH is not altered by any artificial processes.

Why Does It Matter?

The process through which your drinking water has acquired an alkaline pH is more than important.

Natural alkaline water is rich in minerals. Artificial alkaline water may contain some minerals, but more often than not, it doesn’t. It just becomes alkaline due to the ionization process it undergoes before being bottled.

The human body can recognize alkalinity; however, it can’t recognize if there are any useful substances in the alkaline liquid. In other words, artificial alkaline water may trick your body into thinking that it has received minerals such as calcium and magnesium.

By believing the water consumed is rich in minerals, it will start to deplete some of its own mineral reserves, which could potentially result in a mineral deficiency.

On the contrary, natural alkaline water is rich in calcium and magnesium, and it won’t trick your body in any way.

By consuming it, you can maintain healthy levels of minerals in your bloodstream and enjoy their real health benefits.

Pass on the Artificial – Choose Natural Alkaline Water

With all the above in mind, drinking high-pH water doesn’t equate with drinking healthy water.

If you want to maintain your health, drinking natural alkaline water is a must. Experts recommend drinking a “living” water collected from a spring or other natural water source, and that has an organic structure, such as Aur’a water.

While the health benefits associated with this type of water are still under research, you can rest assured your body will receive all necessary minerals, hydration, and detoxification you were looking for.

Superior Taste Award

Aur’a Gold Water received the Superior Taste Award for the fourth year in a row in June 2019. With taste being the #1 attribute valued by consumers when buying food and drinks, the recognition speaks volumes about the water’s quality.

Worldwide Recognition

The Superior Taste Award certification is granted by the International Taste and Quality Institute in Brussels, Belgium and represents the ultimate recognition for the highest quality food and drink products.

All registered products are evaluated by the world’s best chefs and sommeliers for their taste, and only those scoring above 70% are granted the following certifications:

  • Notable taste for products scoring between 70% and 80% (one star)
  • Remarkable taste for products scoring between 80% and 90% (two stars)
  • Exceptional taste for products scoring over 90% (three stars)

For the fourth time in a row, Aur’a Gold Water topped the ranks with its highly-acclaimed pureness and fresh taste and was granted the exceptional taste certification and the Crystal Taste Award.

Jury members included recognized Michelin-starred chefs and head sommeliers from over 20 countries and high-end restaurants including Le Ritz (Paris), former El Bulli and 41 Degrees (Barcelona), and Ledoyen (Paris), to name just a few.

A Distinctive Mark

Taste is a subjective concept. When over 200 jury members conclude that a product is excellent, it helps objectivize the discussions and demonstrates the superior quality of that product to distributors, retailers, and ultimately the final consumer.

Our Superior Taste Award certification makes the difference between Aur’a and other bottled water brands in terms of freshness and taste quality.

Since its first international recognition, Aur’a Gold Water has been served at prestigious events and delighted the palate of some of the wealthiest people in the world. Currently, Aur’a is available in Europe, the Middle East, and was recently introduced to the US market where it immediately received an overall positive consensus from experts and consumers.

Aur’a is not a made up story. It’s not a fictional character in a mythical fairy-tale. Aur’a does not need any marketing cliché or a superimposed image… you feel its energy, you feel its femininity.

Yet “AUR’A” is not just a name. “Aur” comes from the Latin word “aurum” which signifies “gold” and the “A” stands for “argentum”, the latin word for “silver” – both vital nanoparticles present in every drop of Aur’a Natural Gold Water.

Aur’a is a feminine name and the most important element it stands: the woman, who, same as Aur’a, is life giving. Then we have masculine elements, the sun and the king, which exudes supremacy, strength and endurance.

A true natural alkaline water, Aur’a springs from deep within the mountain and its place of collection is “glued” to the slope. From here it reaches the bottling line only a few meters away and then straight into the bottle.

The water does not suffer any transformation, being only passed through particle filters. The content is 100% natural and we do nothing but make sure it reaches the bottle intact.

The water emerges to the surface in a region called “Gold Hawk Mountain” where since Roman times men have harvested rare precious metal ore. The underwater basin is located in an area dressed in endless and vibrant oak, beech and birch woods, arranged as some precious royal robes covering the shoulders of brave soldiers. Away from any potential contamination sources, Aur’a is love at first taste.

Alkaline water has the amazing ability to neutralize and liquefy acidic waste from our bodies and is a source of health and well-being. It has antioxidant qualities that protect cells against the harmful effects of free radicals, energizes, hydrates, regulates, and improves our vitality. A water containing gold and silver colloids has regenerating and anti-aging properties. As a testament, at Ocna de Fier (spring source), life expectancy is very high, over 90 years.

The lack of nitrates and nitrates gives Aur’a the status of non-hazardous water. The absence of organic matter eliminates yet another question mark about the safety of consumption, because something that does not exist cannot cause harm. Water is a living entity. Masaro Emoto has developed an entire theory on this subject and has shown that water lives, is an always changing
dynamic energy.

“Aur’a is an exceptional water whose value you see on the outside and feel on the inside”
