You will get a couple of bottles of this amazing hydrating maple water. This refreshing drink is absolutely delicious and is 100% maple water. It only contains one ingredient but has an amazing 46 nutrients. Here is the list of incredible benefits:
- It’s naturally hydrating

For those that aren’t sure of what maple water is… it is literally the water that is produced by a maple tree. During the long winter, the sap in maple trees collects nutrients from the soil. When spring comes to Vermont and the days grow warm, the sap starts to run, delivering nutrients and vitality to the tree. That’s when they collect the sap straight from maple trees. In the process, no trees are harmed.
