Water Composition and Benefits
The Benefits of Alkaline Water
All the vital cells and tissues in human body require water to function healthfully. Normally, the pH value of the human body should be around 7.35-7.45*. In addition to eating a balanced diet, drinking healthier water is among the most effective ways of maintaining an optimal pH level within the body.
KRYSTAL® has a unique natural pH value of 8 to 8.8 due to its sodium bicarbonate and alkaline mineral content. Researches have shown that sodium bicarbonate and other trace elements can help neutralize the acidity of the human body, improving one’s body both inside and out.

Various international and local scientific research groups and quality inspection institutes have released technical test reports on KRYSTAL® water, verifying the alkaline quality, mineral content and water quality of our source. These research organizations include the leading global testing company SGS and local authorities like the Beian Disease Control and Prevention Center, the Academy of Quality Supervision and Inspection of Heilongjiang Province, Haerbin Mineral Resources Supervision and Testing Centre of Territory Resource Department, and Research Center of Heilongjiang Hydro-Engingeology Prospecting Institute.
Research has confirmed that KRYSTAL® Nature’s Alkaline Water contains natural minerals and trace elements. These minerals and trace elements supplement deficiencies owing to an imbalanced diet, and help neutralize acidity within the human body.
Unprecedented Mineral Composition
Filtered through the volcanic rocks of the Lesser Khingan Mountains and preserved in aquifers for thousands of years, KRYSTAL® has acquired an unprecedented mineral composition from the region’s geological profile. This mineral composition provides a distinctive character and rich smooth taste.
The mineral and trace element composition includes bicarbonate, calcium, magnesium, metasilicic acid, potassium, silica, sodium, strontium and sulfates (Table 1.0). Health benefits from consuming these minerals include enhancing digestion, nervous system and blood circulation (Table 2.0).

Neutralizes acid within the body and helps reduce muscular fatigue . Other benefits of bicarbonate include aiding stomach ailment recovery , and the prevention of uric acid kidney stones .
|Calcium||Promotes bone metabolism and development which may help the prevention of osteoporosis , and keep our teeth strong and healthy .|
|Magnesium||Helps maintain blood pressure stability . Magnesium is also an integral part of bones and teeth .|
|Metasilicic Acid||Has positive effects on the prevention of blood vessel hardening and enhances the elasticity of blood vessels, contributing positively to the cardiovascular system .|
|Potassium||Regulates cellular metabolism, and maintains the normal functions of the cardiac system .|
|Silica||Silica is a vital component of human skeletal structures and helps maintain the health of bones and teeth .|
|Sodium||Maintains the balance of extra-cellular fluids , regulates blood pressure as well as acid-base balance . Provides support to neural transmission function and muscle contraction .|
|Strontium||Assists in regulating bone calcium metabolism, promoting bone health. Helps to prevent cardiovascular disease .|
|Sulfates||Crucial in maintaining healthy cells .|
