Water is necessary to every sportsman, at every level of competition, to correctly rehydrate the body and to naturally reintegrate the minerals lost during perspiration. Still, Maniva pH8 alkaline mineral water has an additional feature which makes it particularly suited to the sporting activity: its significant alkaline pH. While doing sports, a lot of lactic acid is produced, which, in order to keep the necessary acid-base equilibrium, has to be neutralized by the organism: something which is very well-known to athletes, who often integrate their diet with alkaline foods. For the same reason, many teams and sports personalities chose Maniva alkaline mineral water, such as Palermo Calcio, Basket Brescia and the two-time Italian national champion ACF Brescia, a ladies’ football team, among others. Not just that: Maniva has always had a privileged reletionship with the mountain and trail running world, having among its Ambassadors the current World Champion Alessandro Rambaldini, Sara Bottarelli and the skyrunner Filippo Bianchi; also, Maniva has been a sponsor and a supplier for national and international events such as the Tor des Géants, the Tre Campanili Half Marathon, the Bagolino Alpin Run. With all these premises, since 2017 Maniva supports the Comano Mountain Runners, both in its club activities and in the events it organizes, like the Comano Ursus Extreme Trail. A bond which gets renewed every year to each’s own satisfaction!
