Santevia Water Systems began because of a problem – a health problem. Co-Founder, David Anderson was diagnosed with chronic acid reflux and his doctor recommended a pharmaceutical which he would be on for the rest of his life. Co-Founder, Yvonne Anderson, a kinesiology graduate and health advocate didn’t like the idea of a ‘drugs for life’ solution. This led to research in blood chemistry and an understanding of the role of pH in the body and the need for an acid/alkaline balance solution. David was acidic, and this manifested as acid reflux, so the goal was to get him more alkaline. The remedy - alkaline food, better and more hydration with mineralized and alkaline water and more exercise. Alkaline food and exercise were readily available but finding cost effective mineralized and alkaline water was not easy.
The Andersons found their way to an Eastern solution that used Japanese technology to transform ordinary tap water into clean, healthy, mineralized drinking water. Santevia water has a fresh mountain taste, and a pH of over 8.0 in every glass of water. Best of all, it’s affordable and environmentally friendly. Using all-natural earth elements, the water is infused with essential minerals. Regular tap water is transformed into clean, mineralized alkaline water at a lower cost than any other common filter systems. More than a water filter, Santevia adjusts water’s pH to mildly alkaline by reintroducing minerals that promote ionization and oxygenation helping your body maintain its active equilibrium.
The Andersons knew this was the right product at the right time and they decided to make these affordable, environmentally friendly, pH-enhanced water systems available to the public. The business, which began in 2008, started as a home-based business, and has grown rapidly to include distribution in Canada, USA, United Kingdom, Europe and Asia. Santevia Water Systems Inc. is now manufacturing many of their products in their production facility in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
From day one, Yvonne & David Anderson established Santevia Gives Back, a philanthropy program to provide safe drinking water, education, and a safe place to live for children. Santevia Gives Back currently sponsors 3 orphanages in Thailand, a school in the slums of Bangladesh, water projects in Africa, Haiti and the Dominican, and other needed projects at home and abroad. Part of all the proceeds of Santevia goes to the Santevia Gives Back.
A very important thing for the Andersons in this journey is that after a few months of drinking Santevia mineralized and alkaline water, David stopped taking his reflux medication and his persistent acid reflux cough has never returned. A well hydrated and pH-balanced body is crucial to your good health.
