It’s that time of year when we start craving some flavourful hydration. A recent report also suggested that demand for cold beverages has gone up manifold this year. In order to quench our thirst, most of the time we want something tasty, and bottled beverages available near us become our first choice. But most of the time we end up drinking beverages that are not good for our health. This is mainly because people are mostly not aware of healthy alternatives available in the market. HealthWire spoke to Ashish Bhatia – Founder and CEO, Malaki – to understand more about the options available and how alkaline water can be a good option.
Beverages are all we think about during summers. What to keep in mind before selecting one?
Ans: During summers it’s really important to keep yourself hydrated. Beverages with lemon zest and ginger-based are the best natural drinks one can opt for.
Is water a better substitute for these beverages?
Ans: it’s always important to have water. That needs to be consumed at least 2 litres a day.
What are the benefits of alkaline water?
Ans: Alkaline Water is water with a higher pH, which helps balance the acidity in the body. It is a great product for people who suffer from acid reflux.
It is not possible for everyone to use alkaline water all the time. For such people what are your suggestions? Can they use normal water and alkaline water simultaneously?
Ans: Absolutely, you can mix and match the same. As much as possible one should have Alkaline Water. If not available one can also use home recipes of squeezing mint lime and cucumber in their water to achieve similar results.
Tell us something about your product and its health benefits?
Ans: Malaki has a range of refreshing beverages which are made with natural ingredients and are low in sugar.
