Penta Water Is Now Available In Canadian Health Food Stores

Penta purified drinking water is now available in health food stores, spas, gyms and other retail outlets across Canada.

Bio-hydration Reseach Lab, Inc. (San Diego, Calif.), makers of Penta purified drinking water, has new scientific proof that Penta water is truly different than other drinking waters. Scientific studies done at Scripps Research Institute, University of Southern California San Diego (UCSD) show that Penta water penetrates water channels in the body called aquaporins more quickly, thereby resulting in faster cell hydration. Other studies show that Penta water significantly enhances cell life (Intella Biosciences of San Diego), increases intercellular pH (University of Moscow Russia Biology Department) and helps improve athletic performance (University of St. Thomas, St. Paul, Minn.). Increasingly popular in the US, Penta water is personally endorsed by professional athletes who claim that Penta helps them recover faster between workouts as well as increase endurance. Penta's patented purification process makes it one of the purest drinking waters available to consumers. Penta is free of chlorine, fluoride, bromide, arsenic, asbestos and hundreds of other chemicals. For more information on Penta water, please visit or call 1-877-779-7223.
