Water is the most essential component of the body. In fact, it makes up to 70% of the human body. The only source of this is the water that people drink.
It is this very water that moves through the entire digestive system, gets absorbed, becomes a part of the blood and then circulates through the kidney, heart and respiratory systems. The fact that it reaches every part of the body is enough to highlight the importance of drinking the best quality water.
There are countless water borne diseases that can sometimes become impossible to control. The sources of these drinking water supplies are contaminated with pathogens, bacteria, fungi, human fecal matter, heavy metals like mercury and wastes from factories and pharmaceutical companies.
The hazards of drinking water contaminated with any of these are shocking and the importance of drinking clean water cannot be emphasized enough. A healthy and safe water for drinking is spring water.
Drinking natural and true spring water that comes from a mountain or a spring is the safest. It is free from contaminants that are otherwise present in drinking water now available.
Spring water is the water that humans are adapted to biologically. It is the cleanest water in the world as it gets filtered by the earth itself. With no refining or processing this water keeps its essential chemical and microbial composition.
Spring water is naturally alkaline and a better option than artificially alkaline water. This is because the latter of the two does not have the natural concentration of minerals found in spring water. This can affect the electrolyte balance that we have in our bodies.
Instead, spring water contains not only good amounts but also the right balance of minerals that are needed by the body such as calcium, sodium and magnesium.
Calcium helps keep the bones and teeth strong. Magnesium is essential for other body functions like muscle contraction, normal beating of the heart and generation of nerve impulses. Sodium maintains the electrolyte balance in the body. Bicarbonate maintains the pH levels of the body so that all the chemicals in the body are able to work at their optimum pH. These minerals are therefore very significant to how the body works. Spring water is a natural source of them all.
However, it is not possible to find a spring in the middle of the city. This is where bottled drinking water comes in.
The problem with bottled water is that the source can be ambiguous. While the label might say it is fresh spring water, and that it contains all these minerals, it is better not to just trust that. If you plan to switch to any such bottled water, do your research first. Find out if in fact it is spring water or not!
I found a spring on http://www.findaspring.com/. Only a few minutes away from home!
Check it out and find your own. The owner of the spring had all his papers stating the water was safe to drink. Happy spring water hunting!
