View Full Version : Sparkling Mineral Water

I prefer to get my nutrients from *whole* sources so I am attracted to the idea of sparkling mineral water as a viable source of minerals. The effervescence in these waters is naturally-occurring and so are the minerals, according to my research. The only drawback I can find is that mineral water is slightly acidic in its nature.
What are your thoughts on sparkling mineral water?
Where do you get your minerals from?

VH: I think these minerals are not easy to be absorbed by the body.
Better: greens etc...

I don't see any problem with it on occasion. It, like sea salts, have trace minerals which are not enough to make any difference. You have to weigh the benefits vs. the detriments, for example: So, sodium in excess, would provide more detriment than the minutiae of beneficial minerals. Therefore,not a beneficial food/supplement.
As far as the mineral water, I would think it would be okay; but not something on which to rely upon for nutrition/minerals; and its acidity not enough to be dangerous, if consumed occasionally in an otherwise healthful, nutrient-rich diet (I echo lots of greens).
So enjoy it occasionally is my verdict :)
