Penta Water is a brand of ultra-purified bottled water produced by United Beverage, formerly United Packaging Group, LLC., based in Colton, California in San Bernardino County. Penta Water claims to produce its water through a patented physics process. It was first introduced in 1999 in San Diego, California and has since grown into a national retail brand, sold in natural, health food stores including Whole Foods, Sprouts, Mrs. Greens, Better Health, Green Acres, Earth Fare. As of 2013, Penta Water represented 13% of the Naturals Channel category in dollar sales.
Penta Water was purchased by United Beverage in 2010 along with its two US patents.
Penta Water was invented by Bill Holloway who was suffering from fibromyalgia. In 1996, Bill began experimenting with purifying water by using energy created by cavitation. By running the water through the physics device, Bill claimed the processed water helped him feel better with more energy and less pain, and that the purified water hydrated him and helped put balance back into his body.
Penta Water is distributed in 16.9 US fluid ounces, 500 milliliters and 33.8 US fluid ounces, 1 liter bottles.
