Are Minerals Essential in Your Drinking Water?
Natural Himalayan water, an epitome of quality and healthy drinking water contain natural minerals. Spring water contains minerals, premium bottled drinking water is enriched with minerals, and even regular bottled water is also marketed as mineral water but which is not.
It is common to believe minerals are essential to health, but are they? What exactly are minerals and are they essential in our drinking water? Let us find out in this blog today.
Minerals – Their importance and benefits:
Minerals are the micronutrients that are crucial for optimal physical development, disease prevention, general health and wellbeing. This list of essential minerals are again divided into macrominerals and microminerals (trace minerals) which are as follows:
Macrominerals - Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Sodium, Chloride and Sulphur
Microminerals (Trace minerals) - Iron, Zinc, Iodine, Selenium, Copper, Manganese, Fluoride, Chromium, and Molybdenum
While Sodium, Chloride and Phosphorous are needed for healthy fluid balance, Calcium is key for healthy bones. Iodine is needed for optimal metabolism, Zinc for a healthy immune system, Iron for haemoglobin development, and Chromium for optimal insulin management in the body - each of the above minerals specific role to play for general health and wellbeing.
However, both the above categories of minerals are not produced by our body and our diet is the only way we can leverage them for our physical wellbeing. Though we only need little amounts of these minerals as required daily allowance, micronutrients, especially trace minerals occur in micro quantities in food sources too.
So are minerals essential in our drinking water?
Absolutely, yes. Natural mineral water is one of the best ways to replenish the essential minerals for optimal health and wellbeing, for the following reasons:
1. Simple and affordable: Natural mineral water is the easiest and affordable source of essential minerals when compared to food sources and supplements.
2. High bioavailability: As the essential minerals in natural mineral water exist in ionized form, water has high bioavailability and is easily absorbed by our body’s gastrointestinal tract.
3.Easily accessible: There is absolutely no way one can miss out on drinking water when you pick natural mineral water as your regular source of drinking water.
However not all mineral water carry the same benefits and in fact, most packaged ‘mineral water’ bottles are just filtered RO water without any trace of minerals. Though premium brands enrich this RO water with minerals – the bioavailability of minerals is nowhere close to minerals in natural mineral water (For more information you can check out our blog here).
Only natural mineral water with perfect TDS and naturally occurring minerals can help accrue all the above benefits of mineral water.
