Electrolytes and hydration are an important aspect of your overall health. To get an better start understanding electrolytes, we will begin to explore them in the context of high altitude. For athletes—and especially high-altitude athletes—electrolyte balance is critical to maintain optimal athletic performance and safety. You need to be feeling your best on that fourteener (mountain-person parlance for "14,000-foot mountain")
Vitamin water is a beverage that consists of water with added water-soluble vitamins. Most producers offer different vitamin water flavors sweetened with sugar or other natural and artificial sweeteners.
First introduced in the U.S. more than a decade ago, vitamin water sales continue to grow as consumers recognize the importance of vitamins in their diet and feel that the vitamin water benefits outweigh the added calories.
When individuals or organizations achieve "greatness" in any area, others like to know about it. Whether their accomplishment is demonstrated by winning a championship or receiving an award, it helps people know how to rank them. Drinking water is no different. We all have our favorites, whether we choose based on taste or some other factor. But how do the professionals determine greatness in the area of water quality?
Knowing where your food, water, and clothes come from can be both an enlightening and an empowering realization. In a time where brands and products make claims to certain authenticities, ethics, or health benefits, wouldn't it be nice to be able to just show up at the farm and see if those free-range chickens are really ranging free?
Recently, one writer set out on a journey to discover the water sources used by top-brand bottled water companies—and his quest and passion is something that we at Eldorado Natural Spring Water really respect.
Recently in Boulder, Colorado, residents were warned that the drinking water had exceeded the water standard for haloacetic acids. In other words, haloacetic acid levels rose too high for the water to be deemed safely drinkable.
We’re proud to say that Eldorado Natural Spring Water has won many awards. This includes a Gold Medal last year for Best Municipal Water in the U.S., and Second Best in the World, at the prestigious Berkeley Springs International Tasting. There, in what is referred to as the Academy Awards of water tasting, a panel of food critics and journalists assesses water samples based on taste, odor, mouthfeel, and aftertaste, and recognizes excellence. But, we can’t blame you if you feel that claims of “best” are a dime a dozen. If we were in your shoes, we’d demand some verification.
You may have read on our website that Eldorado Natural Spring Water is "award winning." What does this mean? Are there actually award ceremonies for water? Crazy enough, the answer is yes! Journey with us to the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting for an up-close look at the competition that put us on the map.
We at Eldorado Springs have realized that not everyone is as passionate about water as we are. And that’s ok! It would be a bit odd if you were. With that being said, we would like to nerd out for a moment and reflect on one of the most important weekends of the year for us in the water world: the Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting.
