What’s all the pHuss. Essence pH10 water.

Essence pH10 hibiscus alkaline water. About three weeks ago, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, I saw a post about cancer and the pH scale that correlates.  I admit, I became completely engrossed in the topic.  In 1931 Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for proving that cancer cannot exist in an alkaline, oxygen rich environment.

Wait, what does that mean? I did further research to label which foods are acidic and which are alkaline.  I mean let’s face it, we’ve all been faced with cancer either in our lives or someone close to us.  So some of these foods included:  pastries, red meat, artificial sweeteners, milk, peanuts, processed meats, ketchup, corn oil, canned tuna and ice cream to name a few.  Conversely, alkaline foods include:  green chard, lettuce, sprouts, wheat grass, onions, peppers, garlic, celery and greens!

Just around that time I was delivered two cases of Essence pH10 alkaline water.  I had an opportunity to review and share a giveaway with you all.  In all honesty, I wouldn’t have really given the pH value much thought if I hadn’t seen this cancer correlation a few days prior.  Now, I’m not a doctor or nutritionist but I know foods can heal and work with the body to produce and end result.  I was really interested in testing out this water. Working out 6 days a week, I lose a lot of water through sweat.  I drink about 3 liters of water each day.  So what is pH and why is it so important? As humans, a normal pH of all tissues and fluids of the body (except in the stomach) is slightly alkaline. The most critical pH is in the blood. All other organs and fluids will fluctuate in their range in order to keep the blood a strict pH between 7.35 and 7.45 (slightly alkaline). This process is called homeostasis.

The company states: Essence pH10 is a premium alkaline water that contains 10% of the daily recommended allowance of calcium, magnesium, and zinc acetate. Additionally, we add organic hibiscus making this the only nutritional water on the market. This patented formula is designed to produce a sustainable pH10 that helps to restore the bodies pH balance. Essence pH10 is 100% sodium free.  MIST currently comprises four of the most commonly used minerals – Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc; additional minerals are under development in order to create unique blends that are nutritionally superior to individual minerals and that resemble mineral mixtures found in natural products. So my overall take on the water.  Well, its free of flavor (just what you want in water) and completely hydrating.  I have used it right after my training runs, while I complete my HIIT workouts and even on rest days to hydrate my body.  Overall, I highly recommend especially if it can help balance my pH. I was supplied this product to review as stated earlier but the opinions and review are solely mine. #sweatpink #essenceph10 #superiorhydration #alkaline #hydrate #drinkup Would you be interested in trying out Essence pH10 water for yourself?  Check out the giveaway below.

Best of luck!

  2. I would love to win. I really enjoy your blog and all of your helpful tips. I’ve just started on my fitness journey and I find your daily post on Instagram very motivational! Thanks!

  3. Once you started posting about this I researched the closest store to me that carries it. Of course over an hour away. What sparked my interest though is living in the South and running outside a lot in the heat and humidity. Hydration is so important. I know when I am not properly hydrated my body and skin suffers.

  4. I love alkaline waters and I have to say, I am a bit intrigued by the hibiscus. I haven’t seen this around anywhere, but I’d love to try it!

  5. I’ve been buying Evian water for the past few months because of ita high ph. Would love yo try Ph10!

  6. I would love to try this water. Until a few years ago, I hardly ever drank water and didn’t think there was any differences between different waters. Boy was that wrong. Oh, and the bottle is pretty. Let’s face it, we are all suckers for a pretty bottle! 🙂

  7. I never had given much thought to the acidity of what I am eating. I look forward to doing a little more research on my own of pH values. Thanks for the enlightenment!

  8. This would be an awesome opportunity. I’ll probably buy some even if I don’t win. I have dealt with a lot of inflammation in my life and working with a nutritionist and GI physician I learned about the importance of balancing your pH in your body. I usually try to add lemon to my water which is supposed to support alkalinity but this water sounds like an even better choice! Thanks Robin for all your amazing recipes (life changing and always kid approved) and honest reviews!

  9. I would love to try this product- AND now I’m quite interested in learning more about the alkaline & cancer correlation.

  10. I’m surprised it is flavorless – I can’t remember you saying one way or the other so I’m happy to discover it is plain!

  11. Just like so many of us, I need to increase my water intake. . I love the idea of this water adding even more goodness!

  12. Thanks for the informative article. It was a fun read! I’ve been following you for awhile and I never comment. Can’t wait to possibly try the pH water.

    Ps. I love your insta stories with Dasher!

  13. I love your blog and instagram. you have made rethink the way I eat! You even got me running again, just this week I signed up for my first 1/2 ! Thank you for being so real. I would love to try this water. you have me loving kite hill yogurt . I would love to hear about more of your journey of becoming vegetarian and then vegan.

    1. Beth, Thank you for such a heartfelt and sweet message. My journey from veg to vegan was a quick one. After about 2 weeks of extreme bloating and horrid gas (sorry), my husband suggested eliminating dairy to test my stomach out. Within 2 days I felt amazing! From that point on… I never went back. I’m glad you love the Kite Hill yogurt. It is one of our favorites. Best of luck with this giveaway 🙂 ox

  14. I’ve been seeing a few people on instagram talking about “alkalizing” their bodies in the morning, but had no idea what they were talking about. This is interesting- thanks for sharing what you found! And I love that you said “it doesn’t taste like anything… just like water should”. haha!

  15. I’m so intrigued! I love the idea that water could be even better than it already is. Thanks for the chance to try it!
