Water is life! There’s no other substance on earth that has a greater influence on our well being than water.

So, how do you take your water these days?  In these image conscious times that we find ourselves, that preference can make quite a statement – be it fashion or well being. As a result, the water bottle is enjoying a season of elevation like we’ve never before witnessed. Pastel tinted shades, metallic iPhone cases and now crystal elixirs in our water decanters…  That’s right!  Spirited water-to go is now here with this season’s debut of the ViA, an on-the-go (smaller) version of the popular gem-infused lead-free water decanters from VitaJuwel.

Water is life! There’s no other substance on earth that has a greater influence on our well being than water,” so say the folks at VitaJuwel.  Radiation is one of the many routes by which water can be restructured or “informed” they suggest.  And, a very natural and subtle source of radiation are gems (or crystals).  With their VitaJuwel line of glass gem infused water decanters they put that theory to the test.  And now, with this new iteration they hope to deliver these benefits in widening circles.

VitaJuwel founder Ewald Eisen used to put crystals directly in his water to infuse it in his native Southern Germany.  But, the crystals required regular cleaning.  Besides the cleaning issue, the stones would often also emit hazardous substances (e.g. bedrock).  These obstacles inspired him and a team of Bohemian glass blowers to craft a design which would avoid such issues.  Thus was (eventually) born the VitaJuwel pitcher, which infused the water without having a direct physical contact – the gems are sealed in a glass vial.  Initially the pitchers were crafted for just friends and family, but in time the word spread. Today VitaJuwel enjoys a presence not only in Southern Germany but also in Austria and California.  And, the company supplies their gem water accessories to distributors and customers in over 30 countries all over the world.

They come in colors…  

The new mobile VitaJuwel ViA is a glass bottle with two openings. It’s made of high quality, premium glass and comes with an exchangeable bottom piece (gempod), filled with a selection of hand-picked gemstones. The patented gempod is manufactured by hand in the Austrian Alps. Beyond their many healing properties, the decanters certainly do strike a pose.  There are 17 carefully selected gemstone blends available, suiting every look and mood.  So, which gem is for you?  Every blend focuses on different aspects. Finding the right blend for you depends a lot on what purpose you’d like to use the vial for and where your preferences lie. The (basic) WELLNESS blend with rose quartz, amethyst and clear quartz, with its well-balanced composition, is suggested as a good starter model.  But, as their website reads, it’s your call…  “Do you want to relax with your own Spa-To-Go? Care for a motivating drink of SUNNY MORNING with beaming bright Orange Calcite? Got a feeling for a little FITNESS with Magnesite and Red Jasper after a hard hour of workout at the gym? Or attract attention at the club with DIAMOND?  Just screw off one gempod and swap it with another. It’s as easy as 1-2-3.”

ViA VitaJuwels are available for purchase on their website and through GYROTONIC SATNAM.
