AQUA Carpatica is the first and only nitrate-free natural sparkling mineral water. Why’s being nitrate-free a big deal? Excessive consumption of nitrates can cause oxygen deprivation in infants and according to a recent study, increase the risk of cancer. Other health perks: it’s naturally sodium-free, naturally enriched with electrolytes and bicarbonates, stimulates metabolism, and contains a unique concentration of calcium and magnesium that’s beneficial for people who lead active lifestyles. Available in sparkling and still, AQUA Carpatica comes from protected springs deep within the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, the last wild forest in Europe that’s far removed from any agricultural or industrial activity. Millions of years of volcanic activity filter out impurities resulting in a smooth, clean taste.
