Health benefits of mineral water

Are there any health benefits from mineral water?

If you drink two liters of water a day, you could be getting 10 to 15% of your daily calcium requirement and up to a third of your required magnesium just from the water you drink.

WHO researchers also warn about the health risks of demineralised water: “Sufficient evidence is now available to confirm the health consequences from drinking water deficient in calcium or magnesium. Many studies show that higher water magnesium is related to decreased risks for Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) and especially for sudden death from CVD.

This is contrary to many “health experts” and “water filter specialists” that recommend purified water with low TDS (organic and inorganic substances such as calcium and magnesium). It also means that reverse osmosis (ro water) and distilled water or bottled one could have negative health effects.

There is similar evidence from research in Israel on desalinated water, indicating that the lack of magnesium in tap water could lead to deficiencies depending on diet.

But inorganic minerals through drinking water is not the only way of getting enough minerals. You can get e.g. calcium from rocks mined from the earth or you can get it from dairy products or fruits and vegetables. –tappwater.coNatural memory enhancer
