A study that examined the mineral content of hair from 47 women in Sweden shows that the water you drink will influence the minerals that your body ultimately absorbs. In the study, alkaline water drinkers had higher concentrations of essential nutrients like calcium in their hair. Acidic water drinkers had higher levels of toxic elements like mercury in their hair. The results of the study led the researchers to conclude: “Alkaline water may protect from the toxic effects of mercury.”
