Is Mineral Water Healthy?

Jun 20, 2008
What about the natural mineral water H2O brand? Is it worth the money? Read on.

Mineral water, a wonder of the natural world sought after by the ancients for its propensity to cure. Generation after generation has attested to its rejuvenating qualities.

But this is the modern era you say. What's the real story behind these old voodoo claims? Is mineral water healthy or not? There are one hundred and one different companies, like natural mineral water H2O. Each claims to have the best of something that all of us have access to.

Like me I'm sure you know that all matter is made up of the unseen atom. A powerful little thing that hums with an electrical energy that constantly vibrates and binds to other atoms in special combinations. These combinations can be seen in the form of a solid, liquid or a gas. That means that these little energized atoms can bind to create a tree, a rock, a star, a galaxy and yes, even minerals!

Is it all of these vibrating atoms that make mineral water healthy? Well, if you listen to the advocates for natural mineral water H2O, they will say something like this. These are special crystal like solids, substances that only the earth herself can form, from her very special energy. And, as with all of the energies that surround us daily on this planet we inhabit, they affect us in a very special way.

The essence of our relationship to the earth and how it affects us is what supposedly makes natural mineral water H2O, so very healthy. That's not a quote from the company, of course, I'm paraphrasing. What made mineral water healthy to the ancients was probably simply a matter of nutritional deficiencies or simple dehydration.

Some minerals are very important to human health, calcium, magnesium and selenium, just to name a few. So, are these nutrients present in natural mineral water H2O? Is that what makes their mineral water healthy? Not to nearly the extent that you would meet your daily needs.

You might want to compare natural mineral water H2O to what you would otherwise be drinking, though. Some bottled water is purified through a process called distillation, which removes all naturally occurring minerals. Studies have shown that drinking distilled water is bad for the digestive system and can lead to mineral deficiencies. On the long term, that could lead to osteoporosis, erratic heart beat and many other serious health conditions. Sodas and other soft drinks have no nutritional value. Milk has a lot of calcium and other nutrients, but doesn't travel well.

Water, in and of itself, has no measurable vitamin content, but it is the most hydrating substance known to man. Symptoms of dehydration include erratic heart beat, stomach problems, headache, dizziness, swelling in the extremities and in a very short period of time, it will lead to death. Water is more important to our survival than food. It is just a question of whether expensive brands like natural mineral water H2O are any better than what you could get from your tap.

If you use a good filtration system, you can get the healthiest drink that there is, with properly balanced mineral content and pH, but without carbonation, which can cause excessive burping and gas. So, the real answer to "is mineral water healthy" is this; no healthier than what you could bottle at home if you have the right purifier on your tap.
