Fiji water is different from other waters because of its source on the island of Viti Levu, in the Fijian archipelago. Here, on the edge of a pristine rainforest, is the underground source aquifer. As the rainfall filters down through the different layers of rock, sand clay and earth, it gathers a unique blend of minerals. The composition of Fiji's volcanic rock is different from that found in other locations around the world because it is rich in colloidal silica. Silica contributes to Fiji water's soft, smooth mouth feel. At the end of this natural filtration process, Fiji water gathers in the aquifer, where it remains until it is bottled. It is water the way nature intended, untouched by man until you unscrew the cap. Nothing is added to Fiji water. It is all natural and bottled at the source. You can also reduce your caloric intake by switching from higher calorie beverages to Fiji water. Reducing caloric intake is the major factor in weight loss. Fiji water is an excellent choice for staying hydrated and healthy during your pregnancy and while nursing.
