REYKJAVIK, ICELAND – December 11, 2014 – Icelandic Water Holdings hf, makers of the award-winning, premium natural spring water from Iceland, Icelandic Glacial™, proudly announces its partnership as the official water of the National Brain Tumor Society.

“We are very pleased to partner with the National Brain Tumor Society and are looking forward to building a long term relationship with this noble institution” says Jon Olafsson, Chairman and Co-Founder of Icelandic Glacial.
Renowned for its exceptional purity and environmental credentials, Icelandic Glacial is bottled at the source from the legendary Ölfus Spring in Iceland, providing customers with a remarkably pristine natural spring water with a high natural alkaline level of 8.4.

Together, Icelandic Glacial and The National Brain Tumor Society will help increase awareness of the benefits of a naturally alkaline diet which includes neutralizing acidity and washing acid waste products from cells and tissues, converting free radicals into oxygen which the body can use for energy production and tissue oxygenation, and enhancing the immune system to maximize the body’s ability to fight off disease and heal itself.
“We are truly excited to partner with Icelandic Glacial, distinguished for the purity of its water and unparalleled commitment to corporate citizenship. Working together, we will bring real hope to the children and adults who are afflicted by this disease." stated Kevin Courtney, Chief Development Officer.
Through this partnership Icelandic Glacial aims to support the National Brain Tumor Society’s mission to continue to search and improve the nation’s knowledge and understanding to pave the way for research and a cure of an endemic that affects more than 700,000 Americans.
