Santevia Alkaline Water

THE WINNER is Jennifer Kiernan!

Did you know that you use up to a pint of water per day just by breathing?

Water is the foundation of all life and its value to our bodies is immeasurable especially when you consider we are made of over 70% water and our body does not efficiently detoxify if we are dehydrated.  Many of our basic metabolic processes, such as the regulation of body temperature, require enormous amounts of water – up to 3 litres daily.

And if you drink coffee, you need to drink 2 cups of water just to break even as caffeine is a diuretic (makes you urinate). Lest we not forget when you are dehydrated you age at a much faster rate!

But let’s take it one step further — what kind of water are you and should you be drinking? This is a question I’m often asked as a nutritionist. As much as it would be nice to buy the Ferrari of water systems, it was simply not in my budget to spend thousands of dollars (nor is it even necessary!). So like many of you, I used a basic carbon filter to remove most of the chlorine and some of the heavy metals.

After doing a lot of research on water systems, I’ve learned I was right and it’s not necessary to spend thousands of dollars on a filtration system but my basic carbon filter was NOT doing enough. This is why I wanted to try out Santevia because not only does it filter out the following:

  • Chlorine taste and odour
  • Heavy Metals
  • Industrial Chemicals
  • Agricultural Contaminants

But it also creates healthy mineralized and alkaline water.  THIS IS KEY!

Most tap water is very acidic. Acidic tissues are a magnet for disease. So it is extremely important that you at least filter your water with this pitcher. I’ve been drinking water from this pitcher, using the alkaline stick in my bottles on the go and the thermos for my tea for a month now and I cannot believe the difference. It tastes better, I feel better and I know it’s good for me. You can READ MORE BENEFITS HERE.

Plus, there’s the huge benefit of saving the planet from countless water bottles that end up in landfil sites. In fact, did you know that ONLY 40% of plastic water bottles are even recycled. The time for change is now my joyous readers — for the health of your body and the health of mama earth!

So I contacted Santevia to tell them how much I love their products and wanted to do a giveaway on Joyous Health!

Here’s what you can win if you enter below:

  • Santevia Alkaline Water Pitcher (for home use; fits in the fridge)
  • 3-pack of water pitcher filters (6 months of filters)
  • 4 Energy flasks (one of each colour)
  • 4 alkaline sticks

Value: $363 after tax

Santevia Blue Pitcher
Energy Flask


Alkaline Water Stick

    • Charlene Kittinger Feb 6, 2013 at 8:52 pm #

      I would like to win just to show my husband that this water is better for you! He always skeptica;!!

  2. Alison W Feb 5, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    These products sound amazing! I drink lots of water through out the day and didn’t know that tap water was acidic. I’d love to win this giveaway, the sticks sound perfect for keeping at work and having on the go.

  3. Jennifer Straver Feb 5, 2013 at 10:12 am #

    I drink a lot of water during the day at work but we don’t have a filtration system! That mean’s its tap and who knows what’s lurking in there. I’d love to be able to know my water’s clean!

  4. Annie Desjardins Feb 5, 2013 at 10:12 am #

    One of the things im lacking at home and was looking for a new good water filtration system, would be awsome to win it ;). Thanks for the great giveaway.

  5. Kinga Kaleta Feb 5, 2013 at 10:14 am #

    I recently purchased a condo and been thinking of buying a flitration system but I can’t afford the luxury right now. It would be AHHHHHmazing to win this!!!!!! Fingers crossed! :)

  6. Allene Chomyn Feb 5, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    I would love to win this package! I have been trying to drink more water every day and having all of these tools would make that an easier goal to achieve. Plus I live in Kitchener where the water doesn’t taste very good so this would definitely help to make the water I drink more delicious.

  7. Jen Feb 5, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    I’ve been hearing more and more about alkaline water over the past year but haven’t met anyone personally who uses the system.

    Maybe I’ll be a first in my group of friends to reap the benefits!

  8. Kristy Clarke Feb 5, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    I live in Oakville and the water here tastes like chlorine, even with a Brita it still tastes horrible.


  9. Vivian Feb 5, 2013 at 10:15 am #

    I want to win this because I can always use more water in my life, and this seems like it’d add even more benefits to when I drink.
    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  10. Kelly Barnes Feb 5, 2013 at 10:20 am #

    I am learning more and more about the negative aspects of tap water and I would love to win to help filter out some of the acidity I am taking in! Especially since part of my new years resolution is to guzzle a lot more water daily! Thanks for the sweet give away!

  11. Amanda Feb 5, 2013 at 10:21 am #

    Hi Joy! I’ve been following you and communicating with you back and forth! I’d love to win this system because, living with my sister and her family with little kiddies, I think it’s super important to keep our body systems clean. The source of everything is water and it basically starts there… it’s so crucial to our bodies, minds, moods… basically every function! So I know not only I but our whole house hold would truly benefit from this win if we do! fingers crossed and thanks for being awesome as always!

  12. Lauren Feb 5, 2013 at 10:22 am #

    I’d love to win this prize pack simply because it seems AWESOME! I’ve been hearing a lot about alkalinized water recently but as a student, I am on a tight budget and of course cannot afford such luxuries at the moment! The ‘energy flasks’ would be perfect to bring to school, providing me with re-mineralized, alkalinized water where ever I go! :)

  13. Joanne Feb 5, 2013 at 10:25 am #

    I need to drink more water. I love it and know I should drink more. Recently had some dizzy spells and my blood pressure is very low….drink more water and add more salt to your diet the doctor said. I have completed your 10 day Detox and the 2 day juice cleanse and feel really good…..water and lemon each morning is a must. We tend to use tap water as we do not want all the plastic bottles in our home….so this system would be of great benefit! Thank you for thinking of us and keeping us healthy :)

  14. Lise Feb 5, 2013 at 10:25 am #

    This would be wonderful for my family + my home daycare. It would be very appreciated if i would win this. Have a great day and good luck to all :)

  15. Franca Feb 5, 2013 at 10:27 am #

    Hi Joy,

    I love your blog; you have the most thorough descriptions of why the food your recommending is good for us and I love that and this blog on water is no different. I always try to be dilligent about my water intake and would love to win this system to know that I’m getting the most benefit out of my efforts! Thanks for the knowledge and for the chance at winning it.

  16. Gwen Feb 5, 2013 at 10:27 am #

    After doing your detox, I realized the importance of upping my water intake. Of course, I want my water to be the healthiest water it can possibly be. I would love to have a top of the line water filtration system, but my budget doesn’t allow that. I think this would be a great prize to win!

  17. Katherine Feb 5, 2013 at 10:29 am #

    I love this giveaway! I am always concerned of the source of my water considering how much water I drink through the day. Consuming water helps me feel healthy and energized. It concerns me that I may be polluting my body when I am trying to keep it healthy.

  18. Ellen Zalecki Feb 5, 2013 at 10:34 am #

    By recently completing the Joyous 10 day detox, my eyes were opened to how many terrible substances I was unknowingly letting into my body – from food, beauty products, to the tap water I was drinking. This Santevia water filtration package will help me and my family take our new found lifestyle and health to the next level!

  19. Beth Tessier Feb 5, 2013 at 10:36 am #

    Hi Joy!
    I really believe that pure natural water is the elixir of life. Your post helped me to realize even more just how important it is to properly hydrate our bodies with fantastic, high quality water, so we can all be the healthiest and happiest we can be. I want to win this prize pack because I love and appreciate pure, beautiful water, and I resonate with positive intention of Santevia products.
    Thanks for the great post!

  20. Gina Feb 5, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    I have been trying to find a way to “alkanize” my water that doesn’t cost a fortune for a while now! This sounds like a great system and I would love to be able to try it!

    Thanks Joy!

  21. Julia Feb 5, 2013 at 10:40 am #

    Our bodies are 80% water hence putting pure, chemical-free water is the single most important thing we can do for our health. Cheers to fresh water!!!

  22. Alison Feb 5, 2013 at 10:42 am #

    This is amazing – we are learning all about water as a way to prevent disease right now. I’ve been looking into getting a better water filter system for a while now so this would be very cool!

  23. vanessa taboada Feb 5, 2013 at 10:43 am #

    ive heard about alkaline water , but usually the filters are so expensive! this brand seems affordable enough and the health benefits sound amazing, would love to win !

  24. Mindy Feb 5, 2013 at 10:44 am #

    I want to win for 3 reasons!
    1) you LOVE it so it must be good
    2) I know i would use it and love it too
    3) I would love to use this for my facial treatments!

  25. Karly Feb 5, 2013 at 10:47 am #

    I drink loads of water, but it’s almost always tap water. After reading this post, it’s clear I need to do something about that!

    I would love to get my hands on these Santevia products and clean up my water regime :) … Even better if I can win it!

  26. Theresa Feb 5, 2013 at 10:48 am #

    I’d love to win, we have 2 children and we all drink lots of water, plus what we use for cooking. The more I learn about what is in our water, the more urgently I feel the need to protect my family’s health. We have Santevia shower filters and love them. I’d love to try their other products! =)

  27. Karen Feb 5, 2013 at 10:48 am #

    This couldn`t come at a better time – I`m ready to ditch the plastic water cooler in the kitchen. After finishing the 10 day detox, I can`t think of a better way to keep the toxins out!

  28. Candice Feb 5, 2013 at 10:49 am #

    I just recently started filtering my water using a Brita filter and I used to only drink tap water before. However my body is highly acidic and I find myself getting UTI’s constantly if I am not careful with what foods I am eating and am not drinking enough water to balance this out. I had no idea that the water I was drinking was highly acidic and hence adding to my already acidic environment. I would benefit from winning this prize pack on so many levels and would be able to feel better by not having to deal with uncomfortable burning whenever my body got too acidic. I would love to be able to use this system for all my daily water intake, it would be a huge help in solving this issue. Thanks for the opportunity to win such an amazing prize! xox

  29. Theresa Feb 5, 2013 at 10:49 am #

    I noticed my email address was mis-typed in my comment, so I’ve fixed it.

  30. Sarah Feb 5, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    Great giveaway, Joy! I had never heard of this company but this definitely makes me want to try them out. Just like you did before, I do not own any fancy water filtration system (only a Brita) but I wish I did because I know how important it is to give my body clean water. Plus this brand also mineralizes & alkalizes the water? This is the best of both world.

    I would LOVE to take win this giveaway. If not, I will definitely look into getting one of those ;)

    Thanks for the great info, Joy!

  31. Liza Feb 5, 2013 at 10:53 am #

    I am a true water lover. I would like to enjoy it in it’s purest form. This set would be a wonderful addition to my lifestyle.

  32. Christina Feb 5, 2013 at 10:54 am #

    I am constantly drinking from my water bottle at work and would love to know I am drinking the best water for my body!

  33. Tami Feb 5, 2013 at 10:58 am #

    I’ve heard so many good things about Santevia, I would love to try it out myself!

  34. safia Feb 5, 2013 at 11:03 am #

    hi joy!
    i have been trying to live a more alkaline lifestyle by reducing the acidity in my food & thoughts, but never thought about my water! i would love to try this filter system. thank you & good luck everyone :)

  35. Kelly Feb 5, 2013 at 11:04 am #

    I drink a lot of water in a day, and tea as well. I’m always worried about the concentration of contaminants when I boil my water, and it would be wonderful to have a pitcher of the good stuff for drinking and tea-making, as well as on the go. My thyroid and other hormones will thank you!

  36. Fahmida Bhabha Feb 5, 2013 at 11:04 am #

    I know about Alkaline water but it’s outside the house – where I am most of the day is where it gets really challenging. I would LOVE the prize pack to help me stay more alkaline and help others as well , as there is enough to SHARE!!

  37. Craig Feb 5, 2013 at 11:08 am #

    Be great to have this for my family! We’ve been looking for a good water filtration system.

  38. Mandy king Feb 5, 2013 at 11:17 am #

    Hi Joy,
    I’ve been wanting to get some sort of water filtration system for the last few months but haven’t yet! This would be amazing to win :)

  39. Laura Feb 5, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    Tis looks awesome! With the large amount of water I drink I am interested in drinking pure alkaline water and have been looking for a way to acheive this that isn’t way out of budget. This system looks great and very convenient!

  40. JenStar Feb 5, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    I think it’s important to drinks lots of water each day, so I try hard to remember EVERY day. I’d be happy to have one of these systems in my kitchen! pick me! pick me! pick me!

  41. Matthew Feb 5, 2013 at 11:36 am #

    This product sure beats the PC water filter I am currently using! It’s like comparing Steven Spielberg to Michael Bay!

  42. Hayley Feb 5, 2013 at 11:47 am #

    I would love to try this! I’ve been researching and looking for a better water filter, but hadn’t looked into this option yet.

  43. Leigh Malan Feb 5, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    I would love to win this product!! What a great way to stay healthy and hydrated!

  44. Jennifer Kiernan Feb 5, 2013 at 11:50 am #

    Hi Joy, I have recently just discovered your website and blog and have been super excited and impressed to learn so much about what I have been outting in my body. You have helped me to change my perspective on what I consume on a daily basis from food to the products I use and the impact they have on my own health and the environment. I would be delighted to win this awesome prize to help me continue on my journey to a happier healthy me :)

  45. Aileen Feb 5, 2013 at 11:52 am #

    I want to win this giveaway because all of those Santevia products are awesome! If I don’t win I will be making use of your coupon code :) Thanks Joy!

  46. Naomi Feb 5, 2013 at 11:53 am #

    Been looking to purchase these products for some time now. My eyes were opened to the “quality” of our municipal water by my homeopath. This realization also brought me to your site along with my increased interest in drinking alkaline water.

  47. Jennifer Feb 5, 2013 at 12:00 pm #

    I would love to win this system because I believe that drinking pure water is essential for good health. I work out a tone and need to replenish liquids!!! This would be great because it’s quick and easy!

  48. michelle clausen Feb 5, 2013 at 12:03 pm #

    After beginning a journey towards a heathier body mind AND spirit.. I have been taking little steps everyday to live a more joyous life both inside and out..(its not always easy!) this system would be an amazing addition..esp since im a nurse and am constantly needing to drink more water!

  49. Stacey F. Feb 5, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

    This package would be an absolute lifesaver! We go through a lot of filtered water in a day. Making baby bottles, tea, using filtered water for cooking, bringing on walks and when leaving the house as well. The pitcher system we use right now requires heavy, coal and other substance filled filters that leak coal residue all over and are not recyclable, creating a lot of waste. In addition, it does not alkalinize the water. I would love to give this system a try!

  50. Stacy L Feb 5, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    I drink a TON of water in a day. I would love to know that the water I’m drinking has been Joyous Health approved ;)

  51. Stephanie Feb 5, 2013 at 12:39 pm #

    Looks amazing! The portable flasks and stick are such a great idea, I think they would definitely help anyone drink more, healthier, water.

  52. Jillian Gora Feb 5, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

    I drink as much water and herbal tea as possible throughout the day and I want to make sure that what I’m drinking is not doing me a disservice! Also, I want to help all those around me to be as healthy as they can be, so I would love to serve up some nice, alkaline water to everyone who comes over. I’d love to win these prizes so that I can spread the health to as many people that I love as possible. :D

  53. Jessica Feb 5, 2013 at 12:46 pm #

    I’d love it because one I drink a lot of coffee and need to re-hydrate, and two I am now off birth control which depletes magnesium from your bones and this will help off set that!

  54. Deni Feb 5, 2013 at 12:48 pm #

    This looks great! We live on a farm, so it would be nice to use this system knowing that it removes agricultural contaminants. The energy flasks would be great for my kids to use on the go! Thanks for all of your research and giveaways!

  55. Lisa Portis Feb 5, 2013 at 12:49 pm #

    I would like to win this system because it will make me more Joyous! My current filter does not compare to the abilities the Santevia has to alkalinize and mineralize tap water. My fingers are crossed to win this wonderful prize!

  56. Kymberli Ker Feb 5, 2013 at 12:55 pm #

    I would LOVE this product!!! I had no idea that the carbon filters didn’t do the job. I did research but everything I found was so expensive!!

  57. Ami L Feb 5, 2013 at 12:56 pm #

    ohhh I would love to win this! We have been looking for a good water filtration system for a while… this looks perfect!

  58. Ericka Feb 5, 2013 at 12:57 pm #

    After challenges with endometriosis and infertility, I’m starting to pay more attention to what goes into my body. A big part of that is following the endometriosis diet (Carolyn Levett – which is VERY similar to the healthy eating Joy recommends. The recipes and blog posts on this site have been so helpful with this transition. The H2O system from Santevia would even make giving up caffeine (my a.m. coffee is my last holdout) joyful : ) P.S. offers Santevia products as well.

  59. Anita Feb 5, 2013 at 1:06 pm #

    I would love to try these products! Good water is key for good health and this would make it easier to get good water into my body! Cool idea for a giveaway! Thanks, Joy! :)

  60. Naveen Feb 5, 2013 at 1:39 pm #

    This would be a perfect addition to my kitchen for my 2013 “clean eating” and wholesome living plan. I hope I win!

  61. Jennifer Stoddart Feb 5, 2013 at 1:44 pm #

    Oh, I would so love to win this. The flasks and stick are so portable, it’s great! I’ve been looking for a better water filter and this seems like the perfect system.

  62. Danielle Feb 5, 2013 at 1:45 pm #

    At school I need to drink a lot of water but am often stuck with drinking from the tap. Having those filters on the go to put in my water bottle would be awesome!

  63. Julie Greco Feb 5, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    I would love to win this prize and help to save the planet by eliminating the use of plastic bottles. Also, drinking clean, mineralized, alkaline water is HEALTHIER for you and more cost effective than bottled water. The water would taste so much better and I would drink more of it! Cancer can’t survive in an alkaline body. I have switched to eating all organic and already feel better. I purchased a great juicer and have been juicing everyday. This gift would add to my new healthy lifestyle!!

  64. Eva K Feb 5, 2013 at 2:07 pm #

    WOW this is amazing! I drink water constantly throughout the day. I would love to win this product, simply, because I WANT to stop using plastic water bottles and keep toxins out of my system and my family’s!

    In addition, I use their shower filter which is wonderful!! You can see the difference in hair and skin.

    Thank you!

  65. Christa Feb 5, 2013 at 2:13 pm #

    Living in a condo its harder to install a filtration system at ever single tap I have. I would love to have better water available everywhere I am! Work, play, travelling… this is a great package, thank you for the opportunity to win this Joy!

  66. Kate Feb 5, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    I would just love to know that the water I was drinking was healthy. I have a filter, but I had never hear of akaline water before this.

  67. LEXI Feb 5, 2013 at 2:30 pm #

    What a great and easy way to alkalize your body….Another piece to add the Healthy lifestyle…Thanks for spreading the word….!

  68. Lin Feb 5, 2013 at 2:37 pm #

    WOW! This is amazing! Great product…hmmm…why should I win this fantastic prize? Because Joy as you already know ‘I’m working on it’! We love to drink water in our house and no better way to start drinking healthier than having clean, mineralized, alkaline water! Time to ditch the water bottles peeps, not mention huge the savings!!

  69. Rebecca Feb 5, 2013 at 2:55 pm #

    I would love to have this alkaline water system so that my family and I could enjoy fresh water every day and work towards being more alkaline overall!

  70. Carrie Feb 5, 2013 at 3:12 pm #

    I would love to win this system because I didn’t realize that my current carbon filter is not doing the greatest job and I would love to have the convenience of healthy water on the go & also reduce the use of plastic bottles.

  71. Fariah Feb 5, 2013 at 3:22 pm #

    Thank you for the opportunity to win this water system package.

    I would love to win this for our students. We need it!

  72. Kari Feb 5, 2013 at 3:23 pm #

    I really need to reduce inflammation in my body and my drinking water would be a great place to start making my body more alkaline.
    I’m having trouble changing my habits.

  73. Katrina Feb 5, 2013 at 3:29 pm #

    I would love to win this filtration system because I have been looking for an affordable way to truly clean my water. I have been having lemon and hot water every morning for about 3 years now (thanks to you Joy!) as one of the many ways i help my body detox. I am also pregnant, so the urge to drink purified water is even more strong. This would be a great addition to my commitment to health :)

  74. Stephanie Feb 5, 2013 at 3:54 pm #

    I would love to win this contest because I would share the products with my friends, and encourage them to drink more pure, refreshing water! I drink my water from the tap, so I would happily keep 1 of each for myself! Thanks, Joy!

  75. Gillian Feb 5, 2013 at 4:22 pm #

    I would love to win this! I drink water all day and often worry about the purity of it. I’m moving around a lot and looking to keep costs low at the moment so this would be a fabulous thing to win :)

  76. Marcella Lynn Feb 5, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    Amazing! I’d love to win so I could share flasks with three friends!

  77. Shirley Diener Feb 5, 2013 at 4:34 pm #

    It would be great to win this! I drink loads of water every day and I am always concerned about the quality. To know that the water I am drinking is health enhancing rather than a concern would be a load off my mind and a benefit to myself and my family. Thanks for the opportunity, Joy!

  78. laura robinson Feb 5, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    Ever since doing the 10 day detox with Joyous Health I am so much more conscious of water and how much and what quality it is that I am drinking.I would love to win this prize to keep this up and to improve even more! Thank you!! Bottoms up!!!

  79. Sandra Feb 5, 2013 at 5:17 pm #

    Thank you for the giveaway! I would love to win this because I struggle between the benefits of buying spring water vs the environmental effects of buying plastic bottles. I use a basic carbon filter for my drinking water but prefer to make homemade almond milk (recipe from your site) with spring water.

  80. Deanna Feb 5, 2013 at 5:20 pm #

    I would love to win this system! I love clean filtered water but don’t love buying plastic water bottles that end up in land fills. I have a Brita system right now but don’t think it’s doing the best job at filtering my water. Having a reliable water filter system would be amazing!

  81. Samantha Finley Feb 5, 2013 at 5:22 pm #

    I would be ecstatic if I won this amazing item! I have recently developed a desire for health / nutrition and it would be a great accessory to have ! I’d definitely show it off to all my friends.

  82. Samantha Finley Feb 5, 2013 at 5:25 pm #

    I would be ecstatic if I won this amazing item! I have recently developed a desire for health /nutrition and it would be a great accessory to have ! I’d definitely show it off to all my friends!

  83. Jennifer Feb 5, 2013 at 5:36 pm #

    Not only would I love this but I need one too! Joy has educated me on the importance of alkalized water, this would be another great step forward towards a healthier, better me! :)

  84. Shirley Plant Feb 5, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

    I have battled with CFS for more than 25 years. I have been reading about the gut and that we need to clean the gut to be well. Being alkaline is key so alkaline water is the first step. What a wonderful contest, thanks so much.

  85. Ian Whitman Feb 5, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

    I drink tons (litres, actually) of water each day and would really like to get into alkalized water!

  86. Kate Durie Feb 5, 2013 at 5:48 pm #

    Oh my goodness. You know when the universe just sends you this really big, knock over the head, message? Well this is it, and I’m listening.
    I have had water systems on the brain for months now — and had at least a dozen convo’s about alkalized water w friends while I was in TO this past week (a few while at Tori’s Bakeshop no less).

    Why would I like to win this amazing prize!? Because I feel it is a missing link in my healing journey…after my TBI 2 years ago (almost to the day) I have been on a journey between the western & integrative/holistic medicine lines. My integrative doctor at the Seekers Centre feels that getting this type of water system will enable my healing, as well as proper absorption of the natural and pharmaceutical remedies…since many of my drugs cause a drying out. Healing one’s brain as physical injuries takes a serious toll — solving the water piece of the equation feels like the right next step/investment.

    Not to mention I am always thirsty.
    Your tea drinking gal & big fan,
    xoxo Kate
    P.s. I could go on & on, but I think you feel my story

  87. Katie Feb 5, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    I love water and drink a lot of it, so this would be wonderful to have!!

  88. Sandy Feb 5, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    I’m pretty sure I’ll drink more water throughout the day!

  89. Torrie Feb 5, 2013 at 5:56 pm #

    I drink a lot of lemon water for its alkalizing properties; however, I do worry about its affects on my teeth. This system would be great so that I could alternate between regular and lemon water thoughout the day. Thanks for the contest!

  90. Chloe Feb 5, 2013 at 6:00 pm #

    I would love to win this prize as I suffer from an autoimmune disease called sjogrens syndrome which causes severe dry mouth so I am constantly sipping on water so to win this product would be of HUGE benefit to me and my health

  91. Jessica W Feb 5, 2013 at 6:17 pm #

    I would love to win this. I’ve started eating clean (most of the time still adjusting) this year so I have upped my water intake. I also drink a lot of tea so better waters means better tea :)

  92. Victoria Malloy Feb 5, 2013 at 6:32 pm #

    I want to win this Santevia giveaway because I want 2013 to be my healthiest year yet!

  93. Cathy Feb 5, 2013 at 6:41 pm #

    This system looks fantastic! Thank you for sharing your experiences and offering this incredible giveaway! I have been doing my own research to support healthy nutrition and combat GI issues, but I never even considered the ‘quality’ of the water I’m drinking, only that I need to drink more of it! The Santevia system would ensure that I’m hydrating right! Thanks again!

  94. regina Feb 5, 2013 at 6:42 pm #

    nothing better than pure water! and new goodies to make it taste better = drinking more daily :)

  95. Hema Feb 5, 2013 at 7:03 pm #

    I would LOVE to win this system! I live in an older building where the pipes have not been updated, so who knows what state the water is in. I’m often on the go (school, work, committee meetings) and want to make sure I can have clean water at all times to stay hydrated. Thanks!

  96. karen Feb 5, 2013 at 7:09 pm #

    Hi Joy!
    What a most generous give-away!! This system looks to be phenomenal! Thanks for looking out for best interests! And having clean water is likely top of the list as to how we can improve our health!!

  97. Noor Aziz Feb 5, 2013 at 7:30 pm #

    Hi Joy!

    Thank you for dedicating your time and energy to your readers and for giving us more knowledge about the benefits of the alkaline water system. Also, just wanted to let you know that I have been doing the lemon water every morning and it has really helped me! Thank you! This system would be a great addition to my family and I and it would really improve our lifestyle. This would not only be beneficial for my well being but also for the environment, it is completely natural, and free from any chemicals. I have also been experiencing toothaches/pain and the natural minerals would likely aid with this discomfort. These are some of the main reasons why I would love this system! Thanks!

    • Sophie Feb 5, 2013 at 8:33 pm #

      hi noor, just saw the word toothache and omg im suffereing from major toothache too. do the natural minerals in water really help? x

  98. joe-anne bole Feb 5, 2013 at 8:20 pm #

    Water is something we as a family do not drink enough-when I’m working desperately I try to keep a bottle filled on my desk and have even added flavoring only to discover their negative qualities. Unfortunately as a teacher I cannot leave my students alone so i rarely get out of my class to refill my bottle. Having a system for home or work would be great! Setting the bar higher for my students and my family. It’s great to know this system is out there. Thanks for the info and oppurtunity! wonderful idea.

  99. Sophie Feb 5, 2013 at 8:31 pm #

    Amazing Giveaway! I would love to win this giveaway! The reason being i run a convenience store and work long hours. This would be so beneficial for me since its hard for me to drink pure water, therefore, i am constantly drinking bottled water (which i know is not good). if i have this at my store, it will be so helpful. would love to win this. thank you!

  100. Natasha Dorey Feb 5, 2013 at 8:33 pm #

    I am pregnant and find that I am always thirsty. I think this would be a great thing to have especially seeing as how we spend hundreds of dollars per year buying water from the water depot.

  101. Kascha Feb 5, 2013 at 9:11 pm #

    I would like to win something that is going to benefit my health and livelihood.

  102. Kaitlin S Feb 5, 2013 at 9:22 pm #

    I try my best to stay hyderated and drink a ton of water during the day.. and while I take my own bottle with me, I always find myself filling up wherever I can. This would be a perfect package for that purpose, and to finally get rid of the brita! :)

  103. Kaitlin S Feb 5, 2013 at 9:23 pm #

    I try my best to stay hydrated and drink a ton of water during the day.. and while I take my own bottle with me, I always find myself filling up wherever I can. This would be a perfect package for that purpose, and to finally get rid of the brita! :)

  104. Jesse @OutToLunchC Feb 5, 2013 at 9:24 pm #

    I currently use a carbon filter because I do not have the money for a reverse osmosis filter. I have been looking for an effective affordable water filtering solution for ages so I’m really excited to learn about Santevia. Do you know if it filters out hormones as well? I would LOVE to win this giveaway so I can try out the filter and spread the word if I like it.

    • Santevia Water Systems Feb 8, 2013 at 2:42 pm #

      Hi Jesse,
      Due to the vast and ever increasing number of pharmaceuticals we have not tested each of them specifically, but granular activated carbon has been proven to be highly effective in removing the most common pharmaceuticals from drinking water. The Santevia Gravity Water System contains both granulated and powdered carbon in the central five stage filter. Tap water contains chlorine, disinfection byproducts, and may contain herbicides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals, trihalomethanes (THM’s) and other contaminants that effect the taste and smell. Santevia’s three sizes of high quality coconut carbon, and it’s long contact filtration design, effectively remove these contaminants. The addition of KDF assists in the removal of heavy metals and provides algae and bacterial control. I hope this information has been helpful – feel free to contact us directly with any other questions.

  105. Jessica Feb 5, 2013 at 9:26 pm #

    I would love to have this water filter. I’ve been trying to find a system that was cost effective and not wasteful. Thank you for your great blog!

  106. Shannon Corbeil Feb 5, 2013 at 9:39 pm #

    Living in the city with my fiance makes me worry about the pollutants we are taking in. I’d love to at least know my water is pure!

  107. Ariane Feb 5, 2013 at 10:03 pm #

    I would love to win this cause I’ve been wanting one of these for a long time now!!! Don’t have any water filtration system right now… and I’ve heard Santevia is the best! :)

  108. Carolyn Feb 5, 2013 at 10:29 pm #

    I would love to win this water filter – I know this water filter would greatly benefit myself and my family – we would drink more water and be closer to joyous health! :)

  109. Marti Demeter Feb 5, 2013 at 10:46 pm #

    Hello Joy, I have been dabbling with the idea of eliminating toxins from my environment for a while I decided that 2013 would be the year I would no longer use chemical products in my home or on my body. Thanks to your 10 day detox, I have eliminated a number of not so good items from my diet. I feel energized, excited and motivated to keep going. Having filtered water available to drink is another great thing to do for my body and share with my family.

  110. Erica Feb 5, 2013 at 11:07 pm #

    This is amazing!! Thank you so much for posting this information! It has opened my eyes to the importance of filtered water! I would love to win this package to receive the health benefits and of course, become an ambassador the product! Dying to start filtering my water the proper way! :)

  111. Eliina Feb 5, 2013 at 11:17 pm #

    I would love to win this to encourage me to drink more water!

  112. Diana Himphreys Feb 5, 2013 at 11:55 pm #

    I would like to win this contest because my husband is getting
    chemotherapy treatments for colorectal cancer so having this
    water will help flush out the toxins from the chemo

  113. Julia Feb 6, 2013 at 12:01 am #

    What a great giveaway!! I would LOVE to win this, I drink tap water… but reading your blog has made me more aware of all of the nasty things that I shouldn’t be drinking..I would really appreciate this system :-)

  114. Pam Feb 6, 2013 at 6:27 am #

    I know how important it is to drink water but have mixed feelings knowing how contaminated it is. This would encourage me and my family to drink more water without worrying so much about what bad things we’re also getting!

  115. Michele Feb 6, 2013 at 6:47 am #

    I am lucky enough to have well water instead of municipal water and have an RO system, but would love to have something that mineralized the water…especially for my family who really need to alkalinize to heal their illnesses. Thanks for all of the great info!

  116. Kris Feb 6, 2013 at 7:24 am #

    What a fantastic giveaway. I’d love to win this because I’m sure the inexpensive filter I’m using just isn’t doing the job. Plus, the novelty of these might motivate me to drink more water.

  117. Gabby Ouimet Feb 6, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    Hey Joy! I would love to win this because I know my inexpensive carbon filter isn’t filtering my water enough and it’s just not within my means to get anything else right now! I drink so much water from this filter I know I would feel better having a better one.

  118. Patricia D. Feb 6, 2013 at 8:27 am #

    I would love to win this system! I am on a tight budget so winning it would be the only way I could try it at this point in my life.

  119. Nichola Reid Feb 6, 2013 at 8:32 am #

    I would love to win something like this, I have 2 teenagers who I am trying to teach the importance of eating well and drinking well. They along with myself are drinking lots of water (tap) and we live in a very old house so who knows what the pipes are like.

  120. Alyssa Feb 6, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    I drink a lot of water everyday and I would love to enjoy fresh and filtered water!

  121. nicola Feb 6, 2013 at 9:35 am #

    I feel uneasy about the water we have at the office- and I drink a lot of it! I have chronic skin problems and I need to stay hydrated.. plus I wanna look more like you!

  122. Kim Mosiuk Feb 6, 2013 at 9:44 am #

    I don’t drink water, there I said it. I’d like to drink more water, but I don’t like the taste of our water at all. I don’t like buying bottled water for the environmental impact and I don’t want to drink water from a plastic bottle. This may help me drink the amounts of water that I should.

  123. Steph Feb 6, 2013 at 9:52 am #

    Amazing! I have had my eye on Santevia for a little while but haven’t been able to invest in one yet. I’d love to win this! I worry about the contaminants in city water and I’d like to know that my water — the thing I consume most — is safe, healthy and supporting my body instead of adding more toxins.

  124. Nida Feb 6, 2013 at 9:59 am #

    One of my 2013 goals is to drink at least 1.5L of water daily and this system would increase the quality of the water I am drinking, therefore boosting the overall benefits!

  125. Kristen Feb 6, 2013 at 10:00 am #

    I have travelled to many under developing countries and have a pretty clear understanding of the importance of clean water. Having access to clean water changes people’s lives. When I was travelling in Peru, I met this family living in extreme poverty who could get clean water if they hiked 2 kilometers to get it…at a high cost. It was nearly impossible for them. So myself and my boyfriend paid to get a water pipeline in their house and it was the best feeling in the world to see their faces once everything was installed. Water is important and my favourite beverage. For these two reasons, I would love to win this giveaway.

  126. Joshua Feb 6, 2013 at 10:03 am #

    Oooh, so interested in this. I have been using Kiku japanese charcoal sticks to purify my water for sometime. Love the alkalizing components and the portability of this! Great!

  127. Marg Feb 6, 2013 at 10:25 am #

    I follow most of your recommendations Joy and this system sounds like an ideal replacement for my old Brita jug. I keep trying to live a healthier life. Thanks!

  128. Ka Land Feb 6, 2013 at 10:33 am #

    Good day! I am so happy that their products are Joyously Approved because I was actually looking at them but wasn’t sure yet. I would obviously love to win the package because I still use plastic bottles for the home (11L) and would definitely share the sticks with Mom and Bro. Also, it’s so informative to read the other comments. Thank you Joy and Everybody for sharing your thoughts on Santevia!

  129. Elaine Harkiss-Laird Feb 6, 2013 at 10:38 am #

    I love water!! It is my beverage of choice and anything I can do it make it healthier would be fantastic on my road to “Joyous” health!!

  130. Danielle Feb 6, 2013 at 10:56 am #

    I drink water constantly. A friend recently introduced me to an alkaline water system that cost $4000. I can’t afford this but know that my tap water is not helping my body, and I just ran across your facebook post about alkaline water. I would love to try this great and affordable product!

  131. Caroline Leveille Feb 6, 2013 at 11:15 am #

    Thank you for this great opportunity. I would like to win this fabulous prize. I drink a lot of water (up to 3L/day) and like many, did not know about the benefits of alkeline water. Willing to give it a shot.

  132. Becky Dean Feb 6, 2013 at 11:30 am #

    Something I would love to win to help me on my journey to health and healing :)

  133. Andrew P Feb 6, 2013 at 11:33 am #

    In my household we drink a lot of water daily, I’m always been interested in getting a water filtration system but never did it due to the price. So I would love to get a chance to win this giveaway

  134. Pam Feb 6, 2013 at 11:49 am #

    I have been interested in these water systems for a while, but have not been able to afford them. I’d love to take advantage of the possibility of winning! Thanks.

  135. Abby Feb 6, 2013 at 12:18 pm #

    I learn so much about how clean filtered water is so important in my class!!! i have also learned how much it helps to remove chlorine and other stuff that isn’t too good for the body! so i have been meaning to buy one in a while and haven’t been able to…i am hoping to win one! :) thanks!!

  136. sha Feb 6, 2013 at 12:27 pm #

    I would love to win this filtration system so that my family and I can drink water that is truly good for each of us, youngest to the oldest. =) (Joy, you do the neatest contests.)

  137. Kim Reynolds Feb 6, 2013 at 1:05 pm #

    So excited to see this product! I have been trying to increase my water intake and this would make it so much easier and clean!!

  138. Ursula Feb 6, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    Hi Joy!
    Would really love to win this, as this is the last step I’d like to take with my daughter on my way to guiding her (she’s 3) and me towards a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle. I’ve been following you since your days writing for That’s Fit. My daughter has been lucky to have a great start with what real food is, but the only thing the two of us are missing is filtered water.

  139. THEA Feb 6, 2013 at 1:23 pm #

    Would like to try this product, looks interesting and healthy!

  140. Amy Feb 6, 2013 at 1:30 pm #

    Hi Joy, I would love to win this system as I am a water fanatic! I love to make my own homemade fruit/herb flavoured waters & this is just what I need to make it fabulous :) Always enjoy your posts, thank you for sharing all of your tips with us!!

  141. Catherine Feb 6, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    I have been reading and researching about the importance of having the body ph slightly more alkaline and I try to take the steps to get to that “side” of the scale but it’s a struggle. I test my ph regularly. I would love to win this product to help me in my overall health!!!

  142. Brittany Feb 6, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    Hello Joy me and my family love the taste of fresh water and are tired of always buying bottles. This would be a perfect solution to our problems. We would use it to cook, use it for our coffee and of course to just drink. Our water where we live tastes alot like chlorine and my kids will not drink same as my husband.

  143. Carol Feb 6, 2013 at 2:24 pm #

    Because this is the year of me getting healthy: body, mind and soul! It’s been a great start and I am continuing my year of learning by signing up for the 10-day detox and webcasts! Totally not sucking up, but in all honesty, I thought I knew it all but what I’ve learned in the last 6 weeks has changed my outlook on life and what I put in my body. thank you!

  144. jm Feb 6, 2013 at 3:25 pm #

    this product would fit my life style

  145. Kaley Y Feb 6, 2013 at 3:26 pm #

    I would love to win this Santevia water filtration pack. I absolutely love water, and truly believe it is the elixir of life! I would love to upgrade my Brita filter system, and have alkaline water to promote and enhance overall health and well-being. Thanks, Joy, for this amazing product giveaway! :)

  146. Cathy Feb 6, 2013 at 3:27 pm #

    I would love to win this, it sounds like an amazing product. I drink lots of water, and I am only drinking bottled water as I don’t like the taste of tap water. I know that bottled water isn’t pure so pure water in my life would be a great addition.

  147. Kerry Feb 6, 2013 at 3:41 pm #

    I would love to win this for my son, he LOVES water and it would be great having this system so handy in the fridge for him to help himself!!! He always says – make sure it’s cold water mommy, now I could give him cold healthy water :)

  148. Karolina Gielarowiec Feb 6, 2013 at 3:55 pm #

    I only drink water and I currently have Brita filters which are not as good as this product!

  149. Denise Feb 6, 2013 at 4:36 pm #

    This is one of the steps to helping me and my family become healthy and I would love the chance to use this product. Thanks for all the wonderful information you share with me.

  150. David Wyatt Feb 6, 2013 at 5:39 pm #

    I live near Brantford and our water is around 15 to 25 grains hardness and requires drastic treatment to make it usable and potable. It is usually not drinkable and bottled water isn’t an environmentally or economically viable alternative.

  151. Maxime Cardin Feb 6, 2013 at 5:53 pm #

    I drink a lot of water and my heath is important to me. I would to win this prize as it seems well made and environmentally friendly.

  152. Taryn Feb 6, 2013 at 6:09 pm #

    I’m a single mom and I can’t spend all day, all night making sure that my son has healthy water to drink! It would be so much easier to use this system and know that my son is healthier because of it!

  153. cinnamon Feb 6, 2013 at 6:12 pm #

    I have the energy flask and love it :) I would love to win some more products from Santevia.

  154. Kristen Kelland Feb 6, 2013 at 7:13 pm #

    I would love to win this for my fiancé and our newborn baby girl. Our water is terrible, and this would save us a lot of time boiling water everytime we need to make our bottles.

    Thank you :)

  155. Sophie Theriault Scott Feb 6, 2013 at 7:37 pm #

    If I win this prize, I will drink more water, have water at hand for me and my husband at work and feel great about my body!

  156. Tiffani Feb 6, 2013 at 7:53 pm #

    I have a very hard time drinking any other kind of water after buying your flask. It made a huge difference for my health.

  157. Michael Seppa Feb 6, 2013 at 8:00 pm #

    Santevia changed my life with one energy flask. Now I want to give the gift to my whole family.

  158. Madonna Feb 6, 2013 at 8:02 pm #

    I would love to win this Santevia water pack. I would love this pitcher for my office as that’s the only place I don’t have one currently. I’ve purchased a few of Santivia’s products already and I absolutely love them. It’s great for my water and it has helped me so much to get my body alkaline. It proves that Santevia’s products has a great impact on keeping our bodies healthy to fight disease and illness.

  159. Jen Feb 6, 2013 at 8:25 pm #

    I drink so much tap water… This would be awesome!

  160. Julie Davis Feb 6, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

    Nothing better than a refreshing glass of water to perk you up, except maybe a refreshing glass (or flask) of Santevia-nized water! Now *that* would be total awesomeness.

  161. SJ Dentz Feb 6, 2013 at 9:40 pm #

    Oh wow, what a fabulous give away! I currently use a Brita, which certainly is not as cool as the Santevia. The energy flask would be so convenient, I’m always carrying water around in my reused Kombucha bottles. A treat it would be to win this beauty!

  162. Veronica Feb 6, 2013 at 9:46 pm #

    This looks amazing…beats the standard filter jug by leaps and bounds! Would love this…we are on a well here…not sure whether that better or worse than city water, lol!

  163. Emily Feb 6, 2013 at 9:52 pm #

    We have very chlorinated water and I’d love to fix that! I’m also intrigued about this alkalising stick thingy. Thanks

  164. Jennifer Lees Feb 6, 2013 at 10:00 pm #

    I suffer from arthritis and drink tons of (tap) water, thinking I’m doing myself a favour. Now that I’m learning about the benefits of alkaline water, I realize I’m actually poisoning my body with acidity and causing myself MORE pain! I’m encouraged to hear people’s life-changing experiences with alkaline water and I want – no, I NEED to be one of those people! I promise to share my success story if I am fortunate enough to win such a generous prize. Many thanks to you for sharing this important information, Joy!

  165. MICHELLE SCHARFE Feb 6, 2013 at 10:58 pm #

    I’ve been hearing more and more about alkaline water over the past year but haven’t met anyone who used the system.

    Maybe I’ll be a first in my group of friends to reap the benefits?

  166. Paul Anaka Feb 6, 2013 at 10:59 pm #

    we have been getting healthier as a family, i was looking at a water cooler to get away from tap water, changed our minds when my parents bought the Santevia system and they swear by it.

  167. MICHELLE SCHARFE Feb 6, 2013 at 11:00 pm #

    I’ve herd about alkaline water over the past year but haven’t met anyone who uses the system.

    Maybe I’ll be a first in my group of friends to reap the benefits?

  168. Jessica Feb 7, 2013 at 12:20 am #

    I drink a lot of water, but I’m a little concern about just drinking from the tap. This would be great!

  169. NHK Feb 7, 2013 at 3:06 am #

    I would love to have any of these Santevia products so that the water that I drink is cleaner and healthier for my body.

  170. SANDRA MORRIS Feb 7, 2013 at 6:13 am #

    I live in Florida and when one considers the water on the planet has been the same water since the world began, well… The water we use has been recycled countless times. I this modern era it is not done so by natural means through the earth, but through a chemical process. This leaves my water acidic and gereally not very tasty or good for my body or my family. Not real good for anyone for that matter. I would love to win because I would love to change that for my family. Thank for the opportunity

  171. Stephanie Morrison Feb 7, 2013 at 7:14 am #

    I would absolutely love to win this amazing water filter! I work for lululemon and this has been a huge topic of discussion at my work lately between my co workers, the different type of filters that exist, the different brands and the overall benefits of healthy water! Having a good water filter was not something I had ever considered much about, and recently I have been researching more about it and have wanted to invest in one. Would love to win this baby! :)

  172. Lorelei Feb 7, 2013 at 7:36 am #

    We love to drink lots of water, it would be great to know that the water we are drinking if pure and clean.

  173. Rebecca Feb 7, 2013 at 8:36 am #

    I would LOVE to win this so that I can provide healthy, clean water to my family.

  174. Pam Feb 7, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    I try to drink lots of water, but the tap water in my apartment is disgusting! This sounds like a perfect solution.

  175. Ronald Matte Feb 7, 2013 at 10:10 am #

    Need clear, healthy, water!1

  176. Leanne Lindsay Feb 7, 2013 at 10:11 am #

    I have the counter top model and love it. This would set me up for my whole family. My girls would have containers for school so I’d know they are getting the best water possible, and I’d have the pitcher for the upstairs for when we brush our teeth or get thirsty in the middle of the night.

  177. Katherine Towne Feb 7, 2013 at 10:20 am #

    I’ve overcome many health problems. Water, natural foods, growing our own vegetables have really helped. I hope to try your water system and become a fan with a testimony. :)

  178. Caroline Bright Feb 7, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    This is a fantastic giveaway! Thanks Joy, for covering such an important topic. I would LOVE to win this amazing water system, so I can ensure ALL the water my family and I drink is the healthiest water possible. I’ve used a regular carbon filter for sometime, but I didn’t realize that tap water was acidic (eye opening). I see now the importance of mineralized and alkalized water – vital for optimal health. This joyous water system would be very welcome in my home!

  179. Christine Feb 7, 2013 at 11:13 am #

    I’m in the first trimester with my second child. The most important thing I can do for these little beings is to give them the best start possible. Clean water is at the top of my list. I have been researching and trying to find a filter system and am completely overwhelmed. Winning this would be such a great relief!

  180. Jane Feb 7, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    I would love to have this water system for my family. We only drink water…I have been looking for a water filter system that won’t break the bank. Fingers crossed!!

    Hello Joy!

    Winning this water system would be a incredible benefit to my health, and life. I have been ill since childhood and am currently working with a naturopath (who actually recently recommended Santevia!). I can’t work because of my health problems and rarely leave the house due to severe anxiety. It’s hard for me to not be able to go to school and work, and I am not able to afford everything that I need to improve my current situation. Right now I am using a brita filter. Along with other heath problems I deal with psoriasis and chemical allergies and I don’t feel that the brita water system is the best for me. I have settled for it because it is within my budget. If I could receive this chance to better one thing I am doing, it would mean the world to me. I am very thankful for your website because I am able to get lots of great information to implement into my healing regimen. : )



  182. J. Hicks Feb 7, 2013 at 12:35 pm #

    I live in montreal and the water here isn’t very good. My filter at home isn’t the best and it would be great to win this Santevia package.

  183. Samantha Feb 7, 2013 at 1:50 pm #

    Hi Joy!

    Great giveaway! I’ve been wanting a Santevia for a while after tasting the difference and realizing how gross my Brita water is as tastes, yuck!


  184. Janelle Garcia Feb 7, 2013 at 2:27 pm #

    I just bought a Santevia flask a couple of weeks ago and I already can tell the difference and the benefits of alkaline water. I want to win this package so I can give the gift of alkaline water to my grandmas who are not doing well and also to my friends mom who was just diagnosed with cancer. I hope to win so I can share the beneficial results I’ve already had.

  185. Katie Louie Feb 7, 2013 at 2:35 pm #

    What a way to quench your thirst and drink for the love of life! Thanks for introducing this product; seems promising and definitely worth checking out. Happy hydration!

  186. Kristen Feb 7, 2013 at 3:48 pm #

    I would love to win because I can’t stand drinking water from the Brita water filter anymore! It would be much easier to stay hydrated with a Santevia water system :)

  187. Megan Feb 7, 2013 at 4:20 pm #

    I would love to win this giveaway package because I’m unable to afford filterization for water in my family’s home!

  188. Ashley O'Neill Feb 7, 2013 at 4:56 pm #

    So excited to read this post! I would love to win this water system because I have worked very hard to live a more healthy lifestyle and adding this system to my routine would greatly benefit myself and family! :) Thanks for all that you do, Joy! I am constantly telling people about your work and to check out your website! Everytime I make a recipe of yours my co-workers always ask, “Oh! What are you eating?” After that they can’t get me to be quiet about you and your work and my belief that food is medicine!

  189. Amy Feb 7, 2013 at 6:40 pm #

    Hi Joy! I discovered your website this past Sunday evening and I am hooked!! My family (married with 3 boys 6yrs, 4yrs and almost 2yrs) is on a healthy living journey and I feel as though we have hit the jackpot with your website. Since Sunday, we have been drinking lemon water, eating hemp seeds, chia seeds, and sun butter lol! We visited a local farm to pick up some organic goods this week and I’ve signed up for an upcoming workshop of yours. I feel like we are making some really great changes. I would love this Santevia system to provide the best water possible for my family. Keep up your amazing work! I look forward to learning so much more :)

  190. Alana Feb 7, 2013 at 7:00 pm #

    It would be more healthy for my family…..we need it pls

  191. Kimberly Lung Feb 7, 2013 at 7:18 pm #

    My family use to have a filtration system but it broke a few years ago so we’ve been purchasing bottled water whenever the 24packs go on sale for $1.99. I’d love to have to and stop the use of plastic water bottles and be more eco friendly in my household!

  192. Katrina Feb 7, 2013 at 9:06 pm #

    I would love to have one of these! As a (broke) student it’s not always easy to be healthy, but I try my best every day, and drinking pure, clean water is a great start :)

  193. Corinne Feb 8, 2013 at 1:21 am #

    I would love to win this for my mom, she can’t afford a filter right now but I know she is frustrated at always having to use her tap water. She is very health conscious and has talked about wanting one of these for a while, and therefore I know it would put a huge smile on her face and sigh of relief!

  194. Rachel M Feb 8, 2013 at 5:25 am #

    I want to win this because a Brita filter just doesn’t cut it! and who doesn’t fresher water??

  195. Glenda Feb 8, 2013 at 8:23 am #


    I would like to win this system so the water i drink is more alkaline and will force me to drink more water

  196. Maureen Arthur Feb 8, 2013 at 8:44 am #

    Thank-you so much for this info, I seem to deal with inflammation on a regular basis and I drink alot of water so if having a system like this could help I would love the chance at winning it!! Thanks Joy!!

  197. Shamima Feb 8, 2013 at 9:39 am #

    My family and I drink lots of water and it would be wonderful to reap the additional benefits the Santevia products offer.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  198. Shamima Feb 8, 2013 at 9:40 am #

    My family and I drink lots of water and we would love the additional benefits offered by the Santevia products! Thanks for the giveaway.

  199. Cindy Feb 8, 2013 at 11:10 am #

    If this filter makes the water taste anything like the tap water in Salzburg, Austria (no joke the tap water rocked, the water comes from the mountains) then I would love to win one. Thank you!

  200. Rick Smith Feb 8, 2013 at 12:25 pm #

    I’ve been reading about alkaline water and would like to try something to see for myself if their is anything to it.

  201. Lauren Feb 8, 2013 at 1:21 pm #

    I currently use a Brita water pitcher, and it’s just not doing the trick – would love to win this new water system, thanks!

  202. Rob Brydon Feb 8, 2013 at 1:34 pm #

    Being on city water, I find that I have to put water in the fridge to allow the chlorine taste to dissipate before drinking it. I’ve tried other products without success. To be environmentally responsible I avoid the use of bottled water and your product looks like the key to solving the issue. Your energy flasks look like batteries which is very cool and would make a great addition to my work desk!! Thanks Santevia!!

  203. Kim Feb 8, 2013 at 2:18 pm #

    Hi Joy,

    I would love to win this simply because you suggested that I use it and I’m very curious about it :D

  204. Cynthia Harrison Feb 8, 2013 at 5:06 pm #

    I am a cancer survivor and a component of my new dynamic wellness program is to drink lots of pure, healthy water. Finances are presently a challenge so I am unable to afford a good water source so to win this would be truly incredible and a great way to share this product with my family and friends so that we can all benefit. Thanks for offering this contest :)

  205. Sherry Feb 8, 2013 at 5:47 pm #

    We drink a lot of water in our house, having fresh, clean tasting water is the best!

  206. Angela Macri Feb 8, 2013 at 6:28 pm #

    Ever since I took your Nutrition Workshop, I’ve trusted in all things full of Joy! It is indeed a small universe….Santevia recently opened a school in the slums of Bangladesh through which I am Chairperson – and here it appears in your E-news! I’m hoping I didn’t lose my horse shoes during my colonics session as our office and visitors would greatly benefit from the system. The main attraction for me, personally, is the Alkalinity which would improve my osteo and prevent dis-ease. If bread is the “staff” of life, then water is the music! Tanks!

  207. Tracey Feb 8, 2013 at 8:27 pm #

    I would love to win to make one more step towards a healthier life and healthier home.

  208. Anna Obi Feb 8, 2013 at 8:41 pm #

    Would love to win this chic gadget! I love water! So why not improve it with this system!

  209. Emily P Feb 8, 2013 at 10:06 pm #

    I’ve been trying so hard to drink more water every day, but find it hard to remember and get into the habit of doing so. If I had something like this to motivate me, it would definitely help remind me to drink lots every single day!

  210. Sandy McIntosh Feb 8, 2013 at 10:18 pm #

    I work in an office that is very open to other floors and very dry and although they have put in a water filter to help, it does not taste very good and I would rather use tap water. So…I would really like to try this new product out!!!

  211. Liliana Feb 8, 2013 at 10:41 pm #

    It would be great if I win Santevia products. I’m obsessed about a healthy lifestyle. All my freetime I educate myself and looking for the best to me, my family and friends.

  212. jayne Feb 8, 2013 at 11:44 pm #

    I am a 32 year old still struggling with acne :( I am a full time student and recently married with no health insurance (working on it!) I don’t want to go to a doctor anyway because what they prescribed me hasn’t worked. I know I must be imbalanced from within. I just don’t know where to start. It effects me daily how awful my skin looks. I have heard alkaline water and diet may help my skin? Hoping to be acne free at 33! Please help! :-/

  213. Loretta Funk Feb 9, 2013 at 12:24 am #

    Hi Joy, my 4 children and I would love to win this amazing water purifying system! This is cleanest, purest, water that noticeably can improve our health, considering the residues of pesticides and chemicals present in water. This system is like how nature cleans water; my sister and mom rave about it! Thanks for thinking of others.

  214. Dawn J Feb 9, 2013 at 7:13 am #

    I drink a lot of water during the day while I am at work (high school). There is no filtration system, sometimes I even see sand in the bottom of my water pitcher – YUCK!!!! Having this pitcher would eliminate this and give me a secure feeling that I am drinking safe water.

  215. Matthew Tulloch Feb 9, 2013 at 11:20 am #

    Would love to win this! Good luck to everyone who entered.

  216. Whitney Feb 9, 2013 at 1:02 pm #

    I would love to have access to clean, fresh water at all time. It seems like a pretty amazing product and would love to try it. :)

  217. Lisa North Feb 9, 2013 at 1:49 pm #

    I have purified what I eat and the air I breathe, and feel I could do more with the water I drink, it could be better for me! I love the sound of your water treatment alkalizing system, would be awesome to know my water was super good for moi!

  218. Nicole leaper Feb 9, 2013 at 6:49 pm #

    I had no idea tap water was acidic. I really want this system so I can start drinking better quality water
    thanks Joy for all the great tips to a healthier life.

  219. Barbara Hutcheson Feb 9, 2013 at 6:52 pm #

    Would love to win this system!!

  220. Sara Diament Feb 9, 2013 at 8:55 pm #

    Hi Joy,
    I would like to win the water system for the following reason. I’m currently breastfeeding and I need to drink lots of water. I want to ensure that my daughter is receiving the benefits of me drinking clean water. Like you, I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a water system and I currently don’t have one. Thanks Joy.


  221. Bonnie Feb 10, 2013 at 11:29 am #

    Thank you so much for your wonderful blog. I am learning so much from your site. It really helps me to talk to parents and children about eating healthy and promoting good health.

    As well I would love to win this wonderful water filter system. Who can say no to great tasting water that benefits your body.

    Thank you.

  222. Angela Feb 10, 2013 at 11:35 am #

    I would totally drink waaaay more water if I had this! :)

  223. Karen Feb 10, 2013 at 2:00 pm #

    I’d love to reap the benefits of alkaline water! With so many acidic foods out there, it’d be nice not to have to worry about my family’s water as well!

  224. Christine Feb 10, 2013 at 2:04 pm #

    I would love to win this prize so my family can enjoy fresh clean water everyday! Thank you! :)

  225. Siobhan Moran Feb 10, 2013 at 5:00 pm #

    The Santevia system sounds amazing! I have been using Brita for a long time, wondering how much of the bad things in tap water it actually filtered out and how it compared to more expensive reverse osmosis systems. This sounds like a great solution to making water better. Thanks for the contest and the info, Joy!

  226. Daja Feb 10, 2013 at 8:06 pm #

    This is something new to me that I would love to try. We drink a lot of water and if this makes the water healthier and less plastic bottles than PERFECT.

  227. Elena Vo Feb 10, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

    Thank you for the generous and healthy giveaway! I would like to win this to share it with my parents because they live in an area with hard water, and a conventional filter won’t cut it. I know they would appreciate drinking sweet water again.

  228. Ray McLennan Feb 10, 2013 at 8:39 pm #

    I am always looking for way to improve our way of life and health and this seems to fit that bill!

  229. Michelle armstrong Feb 10, 2013 at 9:51 pm #

    I love filtered water. Hope I win!

  230. Colleen McCormick Feb 10, 2013 at 9:55 pm #

    Hi Joy
    I’ve been wanting to get a water puficiation system for a while, but haven’t had the money or known which one was best, just happned to come across your page and see this contest, and maybe it’s my lucky day! I’ve been filling a water jug on the counter to help remove some of the chlorine to make the water a little better.
    Colleen :0)

  231. Ashveen Feb 10, 2013 at 11:30 pm #

    I would love to win this and start drinking some clean water

  232. Laurie Feb 11, 2013 at 9:30 am #

    oh my goodness… this giveaway is amazing! this is exactly what my family needs & would make me feel even better as I drink water knowing that it is alkalinizing! thank you Joy & Santevia for doing this giveaway!!

  233. jeremy Feb 11, 2013 at 10:52 am #

    I would love to win this package. I drink 4-5L of water/day and have a 2yr old daughter and wife who also consume a lot of water. I’m afraid our water cooler with filter just aren’t doing enough. Thanks for the contest, Joy!

  234. Narinder Chana Feb 11, 2013 at 11:35 am #

    Sounds amazing.

  235. Melissa Feb 11, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    I have been wanting to get the santevia water pitcher for some time as its’ supposed to be the best. I’ve noticed a chlorine smell in our water which makes me worried about what I’m consuming. I have been experiencing some health issues over the past couple of years which has forced me to reevaluate what I am consuming on a daily basis. I would love to win one of these so that I can ensure my family is getting the best water possible.

  236. Christina Feb 11, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

    I would love to win this package so that I can finally show my family that we don’t need plastic water bottles!! I loved your post and it’s amazing to know how many foods/ drinks are acidic, including tap water. (who would have thought?). Since I drink so much water daily, it would be great to know that it is not harming my health, but instead improving it.

  237. Megan Feb 11, 2013 at 1:50 pm #

    I have been researching water filtration for ages and I haven’t been able to come to grips with the cost (even though I know it’s worth it!). I would love to win this prize for myself and my family – maybe it’s even something I can sneak in to my husband’s daily routine!! PICK ME, PICK ME!!!!

  238. Dondrea Feb 11, 2013 at 1:53 pm #

    I would love, love, LOVE to win this product! As I’ve been cutting back on my caffeine levels and attempting to drink more water. I always thought Brita covered all these aspects, but apparently not! Thanks Joy!

  239. Sarah Feb 11, 2013 at 1:57 pm #

    I would love to win this giveaway. The properties of this filtration system are so awesome. Filters out toxins AND alkalizes the water? Double win here!

    Water is so important for so many functions within our body. I would cherish this prize and promote the company if I were to win :).

    Thanks for this giveaway, Joy!

  240. Keri H Feb 11, 2013 at 2:22 pm #

    As a mom to a 4 & 6 yrs old, I am always trying to provide them with the most nutritious foods. I also explain to them why it’s so important to drink lots of water during the day (vs juice). These would be great products to introduce to my family!

  241. Linda Uhrich Feb 11, 2013 at 3:14 pm #

    I would love to win this package! I drink a lot of “fridge-filtered” water and am concerned about how clean it actually is!

  242. CL Feb 11, 2013 at 3:29 pm #

    it’s so important to stay hydrated and these products will help me filter my water whether i’m at home or at the office. plus i could really use a new filtered water pitcher!

  243. gardenbre Feb 11, 2013 at 3:30 pm #

    I’ll be gardening this summer and living on Toronto Island and it would be so great to be able to bring the stick to the garden so I can take advantage of water from our community hose AND to not have to lug bottles of water across on the ferry … not to mention having the jug at home to use through the year and the stick & bottles to bring to work. This set is amazing. I am presently using a pop on reverse osmosis tap clip and need to either switch to a new system or get a new annual filter for it and some live drops to add to the water. Good Luck everyone.

  244. Erika Feb 11, 2013 at 6:11 pm #

    Hi Joy,

    I’d like to win this system for a multitude of reasons.

    First and foremost, I think it’s vital to cut down on the consumption of waste – so many empty plastic bottles! Even though I recycle like a fiend, I find that I’m still using bottled water at the office, and I don’t really feel that my Brita is quite cutting it at home.

    Secondly, I’m making an honest effort to reshape my life – my health, my fitness and the world around me are super important. I want to make viable, sustainable changes to leave as little of a carbon footprint as possible, and really just take my health to the next level.

    I also know just how vital hydrating is. Who wouldn’t want to hydrate with a stylish bottle such as the energy flask?! :-)

  245. Lauralee Feb 11, 2013 at 8:34 pm #

    I would like to win this because I love drinking water and would feel even better doing it knowing that it is pure and fresh! :)

  246. Catherine barrett Feb 11, 2013 at 8:59 pm #

    I would love to win because our water is from a well and it would give me added peace of mind to know that my family is drinking water free of most impurities.

  247. Danielle L Feb 11, 2013 at 11:15 pm #

    I would love to win this as it is an friendly alternative for having filtered water in the home and on the go.

  248. S Feb 11, 2013 at 11:45 pm #

    I drink a lot of water every day and would love to replace our old pitcher. I’m still learning about all the toxins that remain in the water even after going through a carbon filter. Thank you for the opportunity!

  249. Eilish Feb 12, 2013 at 12:11 am #

    I am a bit of a snob when it comes to water and have high standards. I just bought my first house and have been forced to drink tap water! This would be so wonderful to have! :)

  250. Slobodanka Skoric Feb 12, 2013 at 12:39 am #

    My husband, my daugther and I drink a lots of water on a daily basis and we would enjoy it even more if we win this prize package.

    Thank you.

  251. Leah Feb 12, 2013 at 2:05 am #

    For healthier water!

  252. tameen Feb 12, 2013 at 11:22 am #

    We have used Brita for the longest while. Would love to win this contest to give my 3yo daughter water that is good for her.

  253. Sandra Feb 12, 2013 at 11:23 am #

    Hi Joy,

    I just finished the detox and did not really realize how good filtered water is for me. I would absolutely love…love to win this. I drink tons of water. I used to buy bottles of spring water but have stopped that for the environment, as well; I don’t believe that it’s worth the money and probably no better than the tap. I drink tap water only, and the water at work tastes horrible!! I would really enjoy to have a filter system.
    Thank you.
    Sandra :)

  254. Grec Feb 12, 2013 at 11:43 am #

    I would love to win this package- I have been trying to drink more water and have cut down on coffee but having a system like this would give me some added motivation to keep going!

  255. Laurie Feb 12, 2013 at 1:13 pm #

    This sounds like an amazing product. I am always trying to drink more water and lead a good example for my daughter, what a great way to kick start it!

  256. leona bulgin Feb 12, 2013 at 6:30 pm #

    Would love to win this – sounds very healthy and would be great to have at our cottage also!

  257. Cheryl R. Mar 26, 2013 at 6:30 am #

    I am on a mission, encouraging my children to drink more water instead of juice. I have reduced the amount of juice bought at home, and when I serve it, I dilute it with water! Even though my kids are beginning to drink more water, they complain about the taste of tap water. I believe drinking Santevia water will not only be cost-effective and healthy by maintaining ‘alkaline’ bodies, it is eco-friendly too!

  258. Claudia Apr 13, 2013 at 5:58 pm #

    I’m in Australia and I haven’t seen this new form of filtration system that makes water alkaline. This is great as I have been reading information around good that is acidic how it can be quite negative to our bodies. Hope I can win it as I said nothing in Australia that I have seen.

  259. Kathleen Maas Jun 15, 2013 at 9:24 am #

    Hi Joy, I have been fighting a bad case of candida. It’s been a slow uphill battle. I didn’t know about alkaline water. This would be a great help to me, in my battle against candida and working towards great health in general. I am a fibromyalgia patient. A few years ago I said goodbye to medication and hello to healthy food and living habits. I think I am on the right track. I am by no means pain free, but at least I am living clean and not dumping tons of toxins into my system that could aggravate my disease. This looks like a fantastic give away, that I could greatly benefit from!

  260. Jessica M Oct 3, 2013 at 10:20 pm #

    I would love to win this as I am trying to kick the pop habit. It would help me start my healthier lifestyle for myself and kids

  261. Nancy Bain Oct 11, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    I just came from the pharmacy with 3 new prescriptions. I feel sick. (Heavy sigh). I read that an acidic system causes illness.
    P_L_E_A_S_E… I would love to win the Santevia package.

    I want my health back. Thank you.

  262. Lana Nov 5, 2013 at 4:53 pm #

    This would be an amazing prize! I drink tons of water every day and can’t afford a good filtration system so this would be great! And this post got me thinking of buying some of the sticks – what a great idea for on the go! thanks!

  263. Jan Lane Jan 3, 2014 at 8:54 pm #

    This filtration system looks & sounds great! I’ve been hoping I might find a less expensive system ever since I learned that our tap water is acidic, especially since I drink so much water daily. It sure would be wonderful to win something as beneficial as this! Thanks Joy, for the opportunity to enter this draw.

  264. Thomas Scott May 29, 2014 at 11:09 am #

    Alkaline Water has numerous health benefits and I suggest everyone to go for alkaline water, since I have been drinking alkaline water I feel great and refreshed.

    Thanks for sharing,

  265. Susan Jul 14, 2014 at 7:11 pm #

    Oh I would LOVE to win this water filtration system. I’ve been doing research and trying to figure out the best choice for me and there are so many choices that it’s overwhelming. This would be perfect for me! Thanks for the opportunity.

    • Joy McCarthy Jul 15, 2014 at 8:20 am #

      Thanks for your entry Susan, but unfortunately the contest is over.

  266. Norma Shrimpton Jul 15, 2014 at 1:45 pm #

    I would like to win this. I want to drink clean water. I already have endocrine disorders due to a tumour on adrenal gland.
