your health


Theoretically, we humans should be better adapted physiologically to the diet our ancestors were exposed to during millions of years of hominid evolution than to the diet we have been eating since the agricultural revolution a mere 10,000 years ago, and since industrialization only 200 years ago. Among the many health problems resulting from this mismatch between our genetically determined nutritional requirements and our current diet, some might be a consequence in part of the many deficiencies that the global population currently experience.  According to the W.H.O., the U.S. and global population are about 70% magnesium deficient. 

Water and nutrients are the building blocks of life.  Your body is made up of 70% water and drinking

water daily, consuming key nutrients, minerals and micronutrients are essential for you to maintain a 

   healthy lifestyle.


Bottled water that is high in alkaline has been the highest growth sector of the bottled water industry.  This is because many health and sports experts believe that high alkaline waters improve health and performance. 


Some medical studies show that water that is 8.8 pH reduces and in some cases eliminates acid reflux.  Several medical studies have shown that the absorption of Alkali supplements decreases bone resorption and increases bone mineral density.  Alkali diets also lower bone resorption. Mineral waters alone could have such an effect.  In several of these studies in humans, bicarbonate-rich alkali mineral waters with low potential renal acid load values were shown to decrease bone resorption markers and even parathyroid hormone levels.  

California MAGnificent is 8.8 pH and also is high in Bicarbonates (370-410 mg).


Minerals and micronutrients are essential for health and how minerals are absorbed is also important.  Minerals absorbed through water do not require the same digestive process and are more easily absorbed.


According to the World Health Organization "W.H.O.", since 1957 more than 17 countries performed over 80 observational epidemiological studies that were related to water hardness and cardiovascular decease risks and which these countries published. 


Most, but not all, these studies found an inverse (protective) association between the cardiovascular disease mortality rate and increased hardness of water (measured by calcium carbonate or another hardness parameter and/or the calcium and magnesium content of water). 




Magnesium is the fourth most abundant mineral in the human body. It plays several important roles in the health of your body and brain.  However, you may not be getting enough of it, even if you eat a healthy diet. 


Below, is the current RDAs for magnesium [1] from the National Institute of Health.  For infants from birth to 12 months, the FNB established established an AI for magnesium that is equivalent to the mean intake of magnesium in healthy, beastfed infants, with added solid foods for ages 7-12 months.


Table 1: Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) for Magnesium [1]
Age Male Female Pregnancy Lactation
Birth to 6 months 30 mg* 30 mg*    
7–12 months 75 mg* 75 mg*    
1–3 years 80 mg 80 mg    
4–8 years 130 mg 130 mg    
9–13 years 240 mg 240 mg    
14–18 years 410 mg 360 mg 400 mg 360 mg
19–30 years 400 mg 310 mg 350 mg 310 mg
31–50 years 420 mg 320 mg 360 mg 320 mg
51+ years 420 mg 320 mg
