Is mineral water good for you?

Alkaline water from a water ionizer is superior to bottled mineral waters that can contain high amounts of sodium

Drinking mineral water is probably the most effective way to get important minerals like calcium and magnesium. Mineral water may even be the best way to get healthy mineral nutrition – unless the mineral water you are drinking contains high amounts of sodium!

Many bottled mineral waters contain high amounts of sodium

Many people drink bottled mineral water seeking to improve their health. The irony is: the bottled mineral waters they are drinking for health may be killing them! A 2001 study called: Comparison of the Mineral Content of Tap Water and Bottled Waters revealed that most bottled mineral water sold for health contain dangerous amounts of sodium.

Researchers in the study compared bottled mineral water to tap water and came to two astonishing conclusions:

  1. Tap water may be safer than bottled mineral water for health
  2. Most people can get enough mineral nutrition straight from the tap!

In North America, about 96% of all households have hard water. The primary minerals in hard water are magnesium and calcium. This means, if you have hard water you can get plenty of nutritious calcium and magnesium – straight from the tap!

But do you actually drink your tap water? If you are like most people, you avoid drinking your tap water out of concern for toxins, or because it tastes terrible. Thankfully, there is a way to fix both problems… with a home water ionizer!

How a water ionizer fixes bad tasting tap water

A water ionizer filters out toxins like chlorine which makes tap water safe to drink. After filtering, a water ionizer improves the chalky taste of hard water by transforming the mineral carbonates in hard water into mineral hydroxides.

The result is a glass of water that tastes sweeter and more refreshing than any bottled or tap water. The healthy minerals are still in the water, but they are in a form which is easier to absorb, and much better tasting!

Drinking water from a home water ionizer is much cheaper than drinking bottled water. Most bottled mineral waters cost more per gallon than a gallon of gas! Healthy, great tasting alkaline water from a water ionizer only costs pennies per gallon. So a home water ionizer is as good for your budget as it is for your health!
