Is Mineral Water Good For You?


water in glass with sliceMineral water is one of the most underrated health foods out there. Drinking water is undoubtedly good for your health, but sometimes normal tap water doesn’t cut it. Not only is mineral water rich in essential nutrients, but it is also natural and preservative-free.

Supplementing your diet with Beloka Mineral Water will build your body strength, immune system and increase your general health and wellbeing.

A decent amount of silica found in Mineral water helps better your skin, hair and nails. Silica prevents skin from sagging, and slows down the process of wrinkles by supplementing the natural collagen tissues in our skin. Hormonal imbalance is also the reason behind acne, hair loss and brittle nails, which silica combats by recalibrating your hormones and ensuring these key areas receive the minerals they need. Not only drinking mineral water, but using it externally to rinse your hair and face will help your body absorb the nutrients.

Mineral water also contains sulfates, which (in small amounts) promotes digestion and stimulates the release of enzymes to help break food down. While enzymes occur naturally in raw foods, most people consume large amounts of manufactured foods on a daily basis, so it’s important to get that extra kick. Low sulfate levels can result in constipation, diarrhea and bloating.

On this note, healthy digestion is essential if you are trying to maintain or lose weight. Digestion allows your body to absorb healthy nutrients, which your muscles will thrive on. Mineral water will cleanse your body of toxic build-up, and can be a healthy substitute for drinks. Weight loss studies show that a significant portion of calorie intake is through what we drink, rather than what we eat, as many people who monitor their diets tend to overlook beverages when cutting down the calories. If you’re a fan of flavoured or fizzy drinks, adding fresh fruit to mineral sparkling water can give it that extra flavour without compromising your diet.

Calcium found in mineral water can aid in preventing bone loss. As humans grow older, our bones wear down and become more brittle. Drinking mineral water on a regular basis maintains a normal bone density and prevents bone-related illnesses such as osteoporosis.

Magnesium is also a key mineral for our health, which is fortunately found abundantly in Mineral water. Like calcium, it builds bone strength, and ensures there is a healthy balance of calcium in the rest of the body, as too much calcium in blood and the tissues increases risk of arthritis and heart attacks. Magnesium also lowers blood pressure and can curb the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
