The EVERx CBD Infused Water Science and Technology
Puration has contracted with Alkame Holdings, Inc. (OTC: ALKM) to produce a variety of flavored EVERx functional waters infused with CBD extracted through Puration's Proprietary Process. These extractions, combined with Alkame's patented water treatment technologies, are designed to enhance the absorption of CBD into the body in addition to providing additional independent health and wellness benefits.
Alkame's patented technology alters the structure of water, producing a combination of characteristics that are unprecedented in the beverage industry. The technology breaks down the hydrogen bonds, reducing water's cluster size, which provides an efficient delivery system for the CBD when infused with the water. Separate from the infused CBD, the technology includes an optimal alkaline pH level formulated with antioxidants and electrolytes for effective hydration.
The EVERx CBD Infused Water Target Market
EVERx will target the growing number of recreational and competitive athletes citing CBD for its benefits in substantially reducing recovery times and increasing cardio output as well as accelerating the healing process from injury and preventing against future injury. EVERx will also target the general consumer that is becoming more aware of the antioxidant and neural- protective research backed benefits of CBD. Research has shown CBD to mitigate diabetes risk and reduce cancer cells among demonstrating other specific targeted uses.
