In their desire to maintain their health people have chosen bottled mineral water, believing that this is the best. Even if the water comes from mineral springs there are some aspects that have to be mentioned, especially that bottled mineral water has negative side effects which are no longer a secret now.
Mineral water has certain components that improve the general condition of our body, yet if you drink too much, in the long run it can create some health complications. The most affected are people with some urinary diseases, metabolic disorders of metabolic or cardiovascular diseases.
There are a number of rules related to how to use mineral water. As you may know, the composition of mineral water is a very important element to be considered at first, another important aspect being the moment when you drink it – before or after a meal – and in what way – with large or slow sips. Each of us needs to drink 2 litres of fluid a day, but of course that does not mean you have to drink 2 litres of mineral water, as this could affect the internal organs.
Mineral water has medicinal properties but if consumed in excess it becomes a big problem. Those who think that if they drink 2 litres of mineral water a day will improve their health are cheating themselves because the uncontrolled consumption of mineral water may cause internal problems. Carbonated water is different than mineral water, so these two should not be confused with each other. Carbonated water should be avoided because it has side effects on the body, primarily as it leads to bloating.
One important thing is that mineral water is used directly from the source springs. When you buy bottled mineral water you have to check the label carefully, since all the elements in its composition are written on the label, especially the contents of minerals. The source where the water was analyzed should be specified as well on the label, along with the pH (indicates water acidity level) which is ideal to be 7. The mineral content is very important for health. Lack of fluoride in mineral water can lead to tooth decay and can harm tooth enamel.
Excess fluoride can cause stains on teeth. If you add a high content of chlorides and sulfates this may increase the risk of serious problems such as: gallstones, kidney stones. Lack of magnesium can adversely affect the cardiovascular system.
In conclusion, mineral water consumption should be done in moderation, and in terms of the composition you should eventually alternate drinking waters with different levels of salinity. Minerals in water are very important for our life, although they have no energy value as proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Minerals are especially important for bones, but also for the entire body.
According to scientists, our health condition depends 75% on the quality of water consumed, so the water we drink plays an vital role in our health.
