What are the benefits of drinking water?

Staying hydrated is great for the body. Water assists the body in clearing toxins. This promotes clearer skin, energizes hair growth, and boosts focus. If you struggle with headaches you can fend them off with 2-3 litres a day.

Is it better to drink water all at once or throughout the day? 

A measured intake throughout the day is the best for the body as it regulates your water balance. Replacing water we lose during bodily functions is extremely important!

How to make drinking water a daily habit?

Starting a new healthy habit takes some time so it’s best to start small and build your way up. This way you won’t get discouraged if you’re not hitting high targets straightaway. Small steps are the best method, drink a glass of water before every meal and build up- enjoy another glass of water mid-morning and mid-afternoon.

Our plastic natural mineral water bottles are the perfect size for hitting your water quotas every day. We also have varied sizes of sports-capped bottles, great for the active water drinker always on the move.

If you’re looking for a new, fun way to consume more water how about canned water? Still or sparkling our cans benefit you and the environment!

Answering questions about the South Downs

We’re glad to source our water from the incredible South Downs Landscape. Grab a bottle of our lovely water and start exploring the scenery. (Only once you’ve discovered more about the area below of course!)

South Downs

Why is it called the South Downs?

The South is fairly simple to explain as it describes the downs’ geolocation in the South of England. The ‘Downs’ refers to the rounded grassy hills and gorgeous chalky deposits underneath. The word derives from “dūn” which meant “hill” in Old English. 

What makes up the South Downs?

Thick chalk bands lie under the downs across northern Hampshire and down towards the coast. If you pop up to Kingley Vale you can see the chalky earth. A more obvious example would be the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs in East Sussex. The land on top is comprised of steep hikes, beautiful flowers & greenery, and an abundance of thriving wildlife.

How were the South Downs formed?

Back in the Cretaceous Period (145.5 – 66 million years ago) a thick band of chalk was deposited in what we now know as North-West Europe. This area was under a shallow sea and it’s where the South Downs began. All that history and now we get to enjoy the natural elixir that is South Downs Natural Mineral.
