Functional Water 101: Alitasa's Mission to Elevate Hydration

In a world where health and wellness have become top priorities, the concept of functional water has emerged as a game-changer in the beverage industry. Functional water is a type of enhanced water that goes beyond simple hydration by incorporating additional ingredients designed to provide targeted health benefits. From improving energy levels and immune function to supporting digestion and overall well-being, functional water offers a new approach to staying hydrated and nourished.


At the forefront of this revolution is Alitasa, a brand founded by Juste McKeown, who was inspired by her father's personal health struggles. Juste has made it her mission to elevate the way people think about hydration by developing a unique range of waters that not only quench thirst but also support the body's vital functions.

In this article, we will take a deep dive into the world of functional water and explore Alitasa's innovative approach to hydration. Through an exclusive interview with Juste, we will learn about the personal story behind the brand, the science and expertise that go into crafting their functional water formulations, and Juste’s vision for empowering people to take control of their health and well-being through smarter hydration choices.


LM:  Juste, can you share with us the personal story behind the creation of Alitasa and what is Functional Water?


JM: Alitasa's journey began with a deeply personal experience. Back in 2010 my father suffered a huge heart attack. Faced with the daunting prospect of a life dependent on medication, he embarked on a quest to explore alternative healing methods. Immersing himself in non-traditional medicine and various healing therapies, he stumbled upon the transformative power of water therapy and the significance of high-quality hydration. Driven by a determination to regain vitality and wellness, he delved into research on optimal nutrition and essential minerals.

Through self-experimentation, he witnessed remarkable improvements on his health. With each passing day, he gradually reduced his reliance on medication, astounding his doctors with his progress during subsequent visits. Above all, we were extremely happy to see his improvements, sharing special family moments and seeing his joy in becoming a grandfather. As word of his journey spread, friends and family clamoured for access to the unique water that had played such a pivotal role in his recovery, thus, Alitasa Functional Water was born!


Unlike traditional water, functional water is infused with science-backed beneficial ingredients carefully selected to address specific health needs.
