WHAT IS ARTESIAN WATER?

A well drilled through a "confining layer" such as clay, which due to hydraulic head pressures rise up the well casing with great pressure to an elevation at the static level of the tapped confined aquifer. The natural filtration of the confining beds provide a protective shield from potential contamination.  Artesian water is of superior quality to other forms of water.  Virginia’s Best is tapped into a confined aquifer over 400 feet below the earth’s surface.  An abundant supply of artesian water that flows through a completely sealed delivery system, free of human contact, and is never exposed to the environment.

 

ARTESIAN WATER HISTORY

Artesian well“Artesian” comes from the name of the town of Artois, France (which was called Artesium by the Romans).  During the Middle Ages, the artesian wells drilled here were well known. The first artesian well in Europe was dug in 1126 by Carthusian monks (i.e., of the Chartreuse order) at their convent in Lillers.  It was drilled not by a rotating drill, but by pounding the drill down in to force a hole that was just a few inches wide.  The Chinese, though, were making artesian wells hundreds of years B.C. 

THE PERFECT WATER

Artesian water is fortified with natural minerals (iron, calcium, magnesium, and fluoride) that are not found in any other types of harvested water.


 

Silver Winner in the 2012 Berkeley Springs International Water Tasting Contest

You might think that all bottled water is the same, but Virginia's Best is pure and natural. We pass all government standards of bottled water before any extra filtering, uv, or ozonating is done. Our water is emerged from deep beneath the surface of the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. Our water is first cleansed by nature and is then micro-filtered, UV filtered and ozonated. It is a natural source of calcium, with trace minerals of iron and potassium, bottled at the source. These minerals are very important to maintain good health!

Why You Should Drink More Water

Virginia's Best Water picture

  • Water transports nutrients and oxygen to the entire body. It moistens oxygen for breathing. It protects and cushions our vital organs and joints. It is crucial in converting food into energy. It helps the body absorb nutrients and removes wastes.
  • Start and end your day with water. Adults lose nearly 6 pints (about 12 cups) of water per day; we even lose water while we are sleeping!
  • Water is a major factor in weight loss. It helps suppress your appetite and metabolizes stored fat. One glass of water stopped midnight hunger pains for almost 100% of dieters reviewed in a University of Washington study.
  • Next to oxygen, water is your body's most important nutrient. Drinking only 5 glasses per day can reduce your risk of colon cancer by 45%, breast cancer by 79%, and bladder cancer by 50%. It will also decrease urinary infections and kidney stones.
  • Water will keep your skin moist, boost energy levels, ease headaches, reduce back joint pain, and fight infections.
  • Dehydration leads to excess body fat, poor muscle tone and size, decreased digestive efficiency and organ function, joint and muscle soreness, dizziness, headaches, and water retention. Mild dehydration can slow your metabolism up to 3%.
  • Don't wait until you are thirsty to drink water, by then your body has probably already lost two or more cups of your total body water.
  • 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. The Human Body is made up of 60% water; your brain alone is made up of 75%.
  • During normal activity levels, your body loses between 2-3 cups of water in perspiration. But during an hour of vigorous exercise, you sweat out approximately a quart of water.
  • Virginia's Best is healthy for you! It contains a natural source of calcium with trace minerals of iron and potassium.
