– 4 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade to Natural Mineral Water

What is the first thing that pops into your mind when you hear the word ‘Natural Mineral Water?

Wait, let us guess – you must have conjured up a 1 litre PET water bottle that is regularly available in retail stores, restaurants or railway platforms.

But guess what? The PET bottle is only a purified packaged drinking water and it’s not natural mineral water that every one of us commonly believes.

While natural mineral water is pure gold, packaged drinking water can be just plain yellow.

Confused about how both are different from each other? Then this blog is for you.

Given there is a misconception about natural mineral water and packaged drinking water, in this article we are going to help you understand how both waters are different . And then we are going to give you 4 reasons why you must always choose natural mineral water over any other packaged drinking water. Read on:

4 Reasons why you should always choose natural mineral water

What is natural mineral water?

Mineral water or natural mineral water is the water that is sourced from geologically protected aquifers, springs or other natural underground water reservoirs. According to FDA, this naturally sourced water must contain no less than 250 parts per million (ppm) of dissolved solids that is primarily made up of essential minerals like calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc and other micronutrients.

Natural Mineral Water vs Packaged Drinking Water:

Surface level water that takes years or even decades to slowly seep into the underground water reservoirs and aquifers undergoes natural filtration. It gathers all the essential minerals on its way down to become naturally alkaline with the right TDS and thus formed natural mineral water is the healthiest natural drinking water that can be consumed with minimal processing.

However packaged drinking water that is commonly available on retail stores, restaurants, railway platforms is barely a knockoff. Raw water that is sourced from surface water bodies (bore wells) is purified using simple water treatments like filtration, aeration, and reverse osmosis to provide purified drinking water.

Though the water is barely fit for consumption, problems are aplenty when you see it from a health and value for money perspective:

  • In most cases, water is sourced from questionable water sources – almost a quarter of all the packaged drinking water comes from municipal water sources.

  • Even for water sourced from quality water sources goes through multiple-stage distillation, purification and reverse osmosis which completely depletes the mineral content in the water if there is any.

  • The result is slightly acidic water, depleted with essential minerals sold in sub-par PET bottles that come with a 6-month expiry date.

Though premium packaged drinking water brands ozonize and demineralize i.e. add minerals to the purified water, they are nowhere close to bioavailability when compared to natural mineral water. So in essence the end product is distilled water that is slightly acidic that do not give you any substantial health benefits and can even be harmful in the long run.

So is natural mineral water healthy?

Yes, only if you can find an authentic source of natural mineral water with perfect TDS and all the essential minerals intact, like Hege’s Himalayan mineral water.

Natural Hege - Best Mineral Water to Drink for Health:

Why Natural Hege is the best mineral water to drink for health?

Because we source our natural mineral water from the best possible source on planet earth – The Himalayas.

How we source our natural mineral water?

Pure water that melts from the majestic Himalayan Mountains makes its way to the foothills. This pure Himalayan mineral water traverses through the layers of earth gathering all the essential minerals, naturally filtered before settling into natural aquifers over 12 years.

The Himalayan natural mineral water thus obtained is naturally alkaline with perfect TDS and is loaded with all the natural minerals & micro-nutrients.

Purity, alkalinity and mineral composition is what sets natural mineral water apart from regular packaged drinking water. The benefits these properties of natural mineral water give you, are the reasons why you must upgrade to natural mineral water, and there are 4 of them.

4 Reasons Why You Should Upgrade to Natural Mineral Water:

1. Improves bone health: Calcium is essential for strong bones and more often than not we do not reach our daily recommended value. Fortunately, Calcium is not only available in natural mineral water but is also more bio-available when compared to other calcium sources, according to this research study. Particularly for the adults with digestion issues with milk and other calcium sources, natural mineral water is the best source of calcium available now.

2. Better digestive health: Mineral is also naturally rich in magnesium that is found to improve digestion. Magnesium relaxes the intestinal muscles, draws more water into them to improve bowel moments, stool consistency, reducing constipation problems and improving digestive health.

3. Lowers blood pressure: Drinking mineral that is high in both calcium and magnesium is found to lower the blood pressure especially for an individual that is prone to elevated blood pressure levels.

4. Replenishes your electrolytes: Calcium, magnesium, zinc, potassium in natural mineral water interact with the fluids in our system to replenish electrolytes that are essential for optimal functioning of our muscles and nervous system.

By replacing your packaged drinking water with natural Himalayan mineral water from Natural Hege you not only accrue all the above benefits but also eliminate the downsides of the demineralized and acidic drinking water.

Since the pure and pristine Himalayan mineral water is bottled directly at our Natural Hege water plant in Himalayan foothills and is delivered straight to your home, Hege’s natural mineral water is affordable when compared to other mineral water brands.

On an average human being has to drink 3.7 litres of water every day, and why not improve your health with every drop you drink?

So upgrade to natural mineral today and choose Natural Hege now!
