October 5, 2016

We posted a while ago on the importance of electrolytes for remaining mineralized- a shocking 90% of Americans are demineralized, leading to an abundance of disease and illness.

We get to do a lot of fun stuff at Santevia. Recently we held a product video and photoshoot to show that while Santevia products are all about function (filtration, mineralization and alkalization), we can be pretty stylish in your kitchen too! The only thing we love more than photoshoots, is showing you behind the scenes of our favourite shoots.

7 Electrolytes Your Body Desperately Needs

July 26, 2016

In a recent blog post, we looked at the effects of dehydration, in which we mentioned that over 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. That’s a sobering statistic. But even more shocking than that, is that 90% of Americans are chronically demineralized.

Now you might be asking yourself what the big deal is about being demineralized. Most people don’t realize how essential minerals are to maintaining a functioning body and their effect on one’s quality of life –  as they participate in your body’s chemical reactions, they literally determine how well your body works.

Here are the basics: minerals in your body divide into electrolytes and trace minerals. Electrolytes are found in larger quantities and serve many functions. Read More…

5 Effects of Dehydration

July 21, 2016

Safe, drinkable water is now more accessible than ever before. In the developed world we are fortunate to have unlimited amounts flowing right into our homes, stores, restaurants, gyms, schools, offices, and even parks.

Yet despite this accessibility, an estimated 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. For many of us, we aren’t even aware of how much water we should be drinking; since the symptoms of dehydration come on so gradually, it’s hard to notice them.

That is why chronic dehydration is particularly dangerous. If we are mildly dehydrated for a long time, we might not even remember what it’s like to be fully hydrated – and all that we’re missing. Read more…

Located just a few kilometers south of the active and outdoorsy city of Vancouver, the city of Delta is home to the Santevia office. So, accustomed to the adventurous nature of Vancouver residents, when CEO Yvonne Anderson tells you that you’re headed up to Whistler for a staff retreat you don’t question it, you just grab a pair of sneakers and a warm jacket and hit the road; and this exactly what twelve members of the Santevia team did on June 17, eagerly awaiting a weekend of fun, fitness, and bonding.

8 Ways to Stay Hydrated this Summer

June 24, 2016

What if I told you that you could boost your energy, mood, athletic performance, and mental processing simply by doing more of something you already do? What if I told you by doing that, you could also keep dozens of health conditions at bay? You might be skeptical – What do I do?

Drink more water!

Over 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. Americans and Canadians spend billions every year on things to compensate for our impaired work performance or poor health. Yet most of the solutions – pharmaceuticals, coffee, and energy drinks – not only ignore the underlying problem of dehydration, but actually worsen it in the long run.

How about breaking out of that cycle and seeing all you’re capable of when fully hydrated? Why not see how good you’ll feel and how much money you’ll save? Here are 8 ways to stay hydrated this summer. Read More…
