Water is one of the most important components of our body and is directly involved in all our metabolic processes like transporting nutritive elements through blood to our cells, eliminating tocsins, thermoregulation etc.

Water represents about 70% of adults’ body weight and up to 80% of babies’ body weight. It is important to maintain a constant quantity of water inside the human body; thus water when lost through sweating or other vital functions’, needs to be fully replaced on daily basis. This cycle is called the water circulation or water replacement cycle and is crucial to a well functioning body. Every six weeks the whole amount of water in our organism is replaced by new water.
Hence, the importance of drinking water before the thirst feeling comes up. Normally, every adult should drink at least 2 liters of water a day to enjoy a good health, a perfect skin hydration and an optimal physical shape.

Mineral water is categorized by its purity at source and its contentof mineral salts which determine its beneficial impact on our health. Mineral composition depends on the mountain layers the water has been flowing through in centuries.
Based on the mineral composition , water can be with a very low mineral content (less than 50 mg/l), oligomineral ( not more than 500 mg/l), high mineral content (500 mg/l to 1000 mg/l) and very strongly mineralized water (with more than 1500 mg/l).


HOW TO UNDERSTAND WHICH WATER IS GOOD FOR US?


Microbiological and Chemical Purity

Water in first place should not contain any kind of microbiological or bacterial agents, viruses, pesticides, nitrates harmful for ourhealth. The higher the source and the closer is thebottlingprocessto the mainsource, the lower the presence of pesticides or other polluting agents.


Low Mineral Content - Light Water

Water should be light and with a low mineral content. A low mineral content guarantees a better smoothlyabsorbableproduct with stronger diuretic properties. The mineral content is otherwise known as Fixed Sediment, expressed in mg/l.


Presence of Important Mineral Salts


Water should be rich in valuable minerals in terms of impact on the human body.
Such is Magnesium which protects the heart and cardio system, kidney, muscular system and helps digestion. Calcium is also relevant as a natural building substance of our bones and teeth, but cannot be well absorbed if Magnesium is missing.
Bicarbonates in certain quantities help digestion, normal body functions and energy production.
On the other hand, Nitrates are polluting elements and should be present in low quantities. Nitrites should be totally absent.
Sodium could be present but its content should be limited mainly because of the water retention phenomena.
