A new 'frequency-enhanced' bottle water is being launched in the US.

Liquid Om, available now in health food stores, spas and yoga studios, is made through a patented-pending process based on the principles of sound therapy being used to infuse purified water to the frequency of the earth as it revolves around the sun, a specific vibration that is expressed in meditation circles by the mantra 'Om'.

The drink will be available at a MSRP of US$1.49 per half-litre bottle.

"Everyone drinks water, and water holds sound at five times the magnitude of air," said the drink's creator, Kenny Mazursky, on Friday (24 March). "That's why dolphins and whales can talk to each other when they're miles apart. In addition, studies have shown that vibration affects the crystalline structure of water and that water has the ability to 'memorise' frequency information. I realised that I could essentially treat water with sound to share the effects of sound therapy with a much wider audience."

"You don't have to be a monk perched on a mountain to find balance anymore," Mazursky added. "People are now able to drink the Om."

The Chicago-based company supports social and environmental initiatives by contributing a portion of each sale to earth-friendly causes.
