Natural Mineral Water Health Benefits

Gone are the days when people would be comfortable drinking tap water. With a rise in water borne diseases and the influx of contaminants and pollutants in our water sources, people increasingly now prefer drinking bottled water and/or filtered water. There are some bottled waters which are marketed and branded as mineral water that tends to set them apart from the many other brands of bottled water. There is no denying the fact that natural mineral water has benefits that standard bottled water doesn’t. Hence the immense popularity that it tends to have in terms of consumer perception.

Balancing Electrolytes Levels

Mineral water contains many important minerals such as iron, magnesium, calcium, zinc, sodium, potassium, bicarbonates, sulfates, chloride and nitrates. When a human body exercises or falls sick, it releases electrolytes. You can restore the electrolyte levels by consuming mineral water as it induces many lost nutrients and minerals into the body system. Also mineral water detoxifies the human body of toxins and free radicals that are harmful for your body. This then reflects in your good health and helps you maintain a glowing and radiant complexion.

Source of Magnesium

Magnesium is a very important mineral that is required by your body as it helps build immunity against diseases and relaxes the body muscles. It also facilitates a lower blood pressure which is imperative for good health and a good heart. Mineral water is rich in magnesium thus its consumption helps you maintain good health and a strong immune system.

Rich in Chloride & Bicarbonates

Mineral water which is an important source of chloride and bicarbonates helps in digestion and maintain a good digestive system.

Rich Source of Calcium

Mineral water is a rich source of calcium which is a mineral that is essential for maintaining strong and healthy bones. The calcium resource in mineral water is very good for people who cannot take dairy products; hence it serves as an alternative source of calcium for people who are lactose intolerant. Many studies in recent times posit that calcium absorption from drinking high calcium mineral water is equivalent to consuming dairy product that are a major source of calcium e.g. milk etc.

Therapeutic Properties

There is much talk about mineral water having therapeutic properties more so when taken on a daily basis. Relative from person to person it can help reduce body pains and swelling that emanates from inflamed muscles or joints.

You're right.Water is the only nutrient that benefits our body in more way than one and we should not underestimate its advantages. I drink 1 glass of water / 1 hour...sometimes more. The more you drink - better you feel! :)
