Drink your minerals

Drink your minerals

July 21, 2019

We can go for more than three weeks without food, but water is one you don’t want to mess with.The adult human body is made up of at least 60% water—every living cell in the body needs it to function and being a high functioning human is in fashun. Water regulates body temperature, lubricates joints, and helps flush waste. However, not all water is created equal.

Meet minerals 

May I introduce you to minerals? Your body uses 16 different minerals to perform many different functions that range from building strong bones to transmitting nerve impulses. Minerals are also essential to our hormonal health and maintaining a normal heartbeat. So, how do we incorporate more minerals into our diets? One of my favorite methods is by drinking mineral water. 

 

 

The Gerolsteiner difference 

There are a ton of mineral waters on the market, but not all are created equal. Getolsteiner has one of the most balanced mineral contents I’ve seen to date. It quenches thirst and, at the same time, provides the body with valuable minerals and trace elements, which the body cannot generate itself. 

So how is mineral water made? Naturally! Gerolsteiner comes from Gerolstein in the heart of the Volcanic Eifel, hence its name. Over time, water seeps down through the mineral-rich layers of dolomite bedrock, absorbing minerals and carbonic acid. 

From the depths of the Volcanic Eiffel to every cell of your body: one liter of Gerolsteiner Mineral Water contains over 2,500mg of minerals and trace elements. But the big one that sets Gerolsteiner apart is its high amount of bicarbonate. Bicarbonate, also known as hydrogen carbonate, is responsible for maintaining the balance of acids and bases in your body, i.e. the pH value. Bicarbonate plays a vital role in buffering acids and ensures that the mineral water tastes clean and refreshing. 

Many mineral waters are too high in calcium, high in sodium or lacking some key components, but I find Gerolsteiner to be balanced and the most bioavailable.
