Jana
Scientists have confirmed that Jana natural artesian water began its long journey from the surface to a depth of 2700 feet well over 3,000 years ago. Jana Water is bottled at the source at an underground depth of 2700 feet in the picturesque Croatian village of Saint Jana. Croatia, a country known for its water, has the largest supply of drinking water in all of Europe. Croatia has more than 1000 islands, situated along the coast of the Adriatic Sea, many lakes surrounded with lush forests, and many more hidden natural treasures.



Jana 's well, is one of the deepest in Europe. Jana Water's purity and freshness is a result of the slow and natural filtering process, through a vast aquifer of layered mineral rock. It is additionally protected by a layer of granite above the well basin. During this long natural journey, Jana natural artesian water is enriched with minerals, in particular calcium and magnesium. Jana water also contains silica, which promotes healthy cartilage, skin, hair and nails. The water has the perfect pH level of 7.4 - the same pH as your body which yields better cell absorption and flushing of toxic waste. 

Jana natural artesian water boasts an exceptional stable mineral composition that is regularly monitored throughout the year. This guarantees Jana Water's smooth taste and its appealing freshness and silky texture. Daily quality checks are also performed to ensure that the water in the bottle is exactly as nature intended. 

The essence of Jana Water's pureness lies in the fact that nothing comes between you and Jana. The latest state-of-the-art aseptic bottling technology enables water to be pumped directly into the bottle, without any contact with the outside world. Therefore, the unique properties of this extraordinary water are delivered to you untouched, just as nature intended.

Birch Water - Revisited
This is not just a picture of trees, and a path (Could almost be the inspiration of Robert Frost's "The Road Not taken" ....two roads diverged in a yellow wood......) It's actually a source of water.



We mentioned Birch Water in our November edition of the Fountainhead. It is one of many new ventures into the "plant-based" waters, making their way to grocery store shelves. Maple water, Artichoke water, Olive water, Cactus water, and now Birch water are all following suit after the leader, Coconut water, which has made such an impact.

The thin, watery sap is tapped from birch tree trunks in early spring and has been a popular drink in areas such as Russia and Northern China for centuries thanks to its health benefits.

The benefits of Birch water are many, and too numerous to mention them all, but it claims to flush out toxins, eliminate cellulite, cure bronchitus and arthritis, treat liver disease, dandruff, eczema. You get the picture? If you'd like to read, or see more, there is an extensive article and video here.


Everyone Affected by Boil Water Advisory
A citywide boil water advisory has finally been lifted, in Winnipeg, however, for two days, even the primates at the city’s Assiniboine Park Zoo were limited to drinking bottled or boiled water.

A couple of residents of Gardena, CA are saying this is what their water looks like, yet water officials are saying, it's safe to drink. Hmmm


Dr Suess Encouraging Kids to Drink Water

A book by Dr Suess, "Oh, the Things You Can Do That Are Good For You: All About Staying Healthy" was recently used by Michelle Obama to read to a group of Washington DC school children. The book contains several passages that promote water as a healthy drink choice. A couple are shown here.

 "Then reach for some water, it is delicious to drink. You can fill your own bottle from a fountain or sink." (Obviously, we would have preferred if it had also mentioned bottled water.)

"When you're thirsty just listen, your body says, ‘think.’ I need to get water, please drink, drink, drink, drink."


Do You Remember the Food Pyramid?
The original food pyramid, containing Bread, cereal and rice, with fruit and vegetables on top of that, followed by milk and cheese, and meat and poultry, and finally fats, oil and sweets on the top, was replaced my "My Plate" in 2011. A simpler format divided in portions, showing Protein, Vegetables, Grains, Fruit and Dairy.

Well, if the University of California's Nutrition Policy Institute, along with the IBWA International Bottled Water Association get their way, there may be another revision. They have jointly petitioned the Dietary Guideline Advisory Committee (DGAC) to add water to their graphic. The new plate is also shown below.



Believe It Or Not
From Poop to Potable

If you look closely, yes, that's Bill Gates. He is standing in front of what is called an Omniprocessor. This device has been funded by Bill Gates to help improve the sanitation conditions in developing nations, particularly countries in Africa. It is an efficient sewage processing system that takes waste in on one end, and converts it to pure drinking water and electricity out the other end. Accomplishing two goals, eliminating waste, a huge factor for helping to control disease, and also providing drinkable water, a scarce commodity, in many parts of the world.



Gates recently made an appearance on The Tonight Show to talk about the new Omniprocessor, and to prove that the device can really convert poop into drinkable water. The “ultimate taste test” was set up. Click on the image below to watch Fallon's reaction.

More water is used in the bathroom than any other place in the home.
