Did you know that mineral water is one of the healthiest choices you can make for your body? It’s true! Mineral water is packed with essential minerals that our bodies need to function properly. In this blog, we will discuss the benefits of drinking mineral water and provide some tips on how to make it a part of your daily routine. We hope you enjoy!
Benefits of Drinking Mineral Water
Water is essential for our bodies, and all the cells in our body need water to function properly. In addition, drinking clean mineral water ensures that we get just enough minerals from the water we drink instead of too much or too little. The benefits of drinking mineral water include:
Provides Essential Minerals
Our bodies need essential minerals such as calcium and magnesium in order to function properly. Drinking pure, clean mineral water ensures that we get just the right amount of these important minerals. Without them, our muscles might cramp and our bones could become weak. Many people drink too much soda or fruit juice instead of drinking more mineral water because they crave a sweet taste, but these drinks do not provide our bodies with the nutrients it needs. In contrast, many commercially bottled ‘mineral’ waters have been through extensive processing which can strip out some of the good minerals from the water while leaving behind bad chemicals from contaminants such as plastics that leech into our food or drinks. These minerals also do not contain any of the natural electrolytes which can aid in proper hydration and keep us healthy.
Mineral water is naturally isotonic, meaning that it has the same concentration of ions as our bodies do and therefore helps us to stay properly hydrated. Drinking just two glasses of mineral water a day has been shown to aid in proper hydration so we will feel less thirsty and drink more during the day. When we are properly hydrated, we have better skin health because the cells won’t lose too much moisture and will be able to produce collagen. We will also have healthier digestion because this organ system works at its best when it has enough liquids moving through it, along with fiber from whole foods and other foods we eat which help keep us full. Proper hydration also helps keep our kidneys healthy and able to flush out toxins that can build up in our bodies and make us sick.
Keeps Our Cells Healthy
Because minerals like magnesium (found in mineral water) help regulate the sodium/potassium ratio, they can also help prevent disease such as cardiovascular health issues or high blood pressure. Electrolytes such as those found in pure mineral water ensure that cells throughout the body stay healthy and do not hydrogenate inside their membranes. When cells hydrogenate inside their cell walls (a process called oxidative stress), it means that the cells cannot communicate with one another efficiently or effectively which will interfere with how we feel overall.
Some other benefits are:
- It helps to keep you in healthy BMI by promoting weight loss.
- It keeps your organs healthy and they will function well throughout your life span.
- It will keep your brain sharp and active through proper mineral water intake.
- Promotes healthy sleep as by drinking mineral water, your sleep cycle will be regulated and you will fall asleep in night and wake up early in the morning.
- Increases your life expectancy as your body will be healthier with it.
- It will keep your skin hydrated and glowing if you drink the required amount of mineral water.
