Benefits of Mineral Water
There are numerous health benefits of drinking mineral water. Not every bottled mineral water is the same and each contain various levels of minerals. It is important for consumers to understand the benefits of all these indispensable minerals.
Calcium: The mineral calcium is crucial to maintain normal bone density. Intake of calcium in sufficient amounts helps strengthen the bones and prevent development of bone diseases like osteoporosis. It is very important for children, young people and pregnant women.
Magnesium: This mineral boosts the immune system, thereby helping to fight infections effectively. This mineral also assists the metabolism.
Potassium: Important mineral to keeping the heart, kidney and other important organs in good working condition.
Bicarbonate: acts as a buffer to maintain the normal levels of acidity (pH) in blood and other fluids in the body
Sulfate: Sulfate acts as a detoxifying agent and helps to cleanse the body thoroughly.
Silica: Key ingredient to keeping skin healthier, younger, and more radiant
Proper Electrolyte Balance: Electrolytes are nothing but salts (potassium, magnesium, chloride) that occur in the body. People experiencing electrolyte imbalance are asked to drink mineral water to restore and maintain normal electrolyte balance.
*Most bottled waters do not post everything that is in their water but only selectively put a few items on their labels. Please check our past post as we have created a chart illustrating the varying levels of minerals in different bottled waters.
