According to guidelines from Smart Choices to Healing Foods, here's a few things you should know about Mineral Water.
* Mineral Water comes from a single underground source and it is required by LAW to be free of harmful bacteria & chemicals, plus it must maintain a consistent mineral content. It can be sparkling or still, filtered or exposed to ultraviolet light but it CANNOT be disinfected or sterilized in any other way.
Mineral water is rated the BEST bet because of its high purity, its consistent good taste factor, AND because it contains health-enhancing nutrients including calcium & magnesium.
It can, however, contain sodium, so make sure to check the label for content levels if you have high blood pressure or heart disease.
