Some people say that mineral water has high mineral content which is good for you. It depends on the source of the mineral water. You should make sure it comes from an actual mineral water.

Usually I am desperate to drink mineral water. Recently this craving has abruptly stopped. What may this indicate?
Tastes often change with age.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more
Filtered water: Drinking filtered water is not a bad idea as most tap water contains teeth-strengthening fluoride. Natural spring water with minerals drinking directly might be ok, but not necessarily healthier. Bottled water, however, is controversial as most water bottles are unfortunately not recycled, resulting in billions of water bottles clogging landfills each year, which cannot be easily decomposed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is it okay that my baby is drinking a mineral water instead of distilled water? She's turning 3 years old this coming August. Thanks!
Hi goodevening! For my baby's drinking water, can I use mineral water instead of distilled water? Thank you in advance and godbless.
Not recommended: Mineral water may contain levels of sodium or other chemicals that are difficult for young kidneys to deal with. By 2 years of age, this is likely no longer a concern. Distilled does not have any of those problems, but remember that the child requires fluoride supplementation. ...Read more
Is distilled water the best available water to drink? I heard that it leaches out inorganic minerals & toxins that build up with everyday metabolism.
Not true: There are no particular health benefits to distilled water over regular water. If you do an internet search you find sites that say distilled water is good for you, distilled water is bad for you. I say it's neither, it's just distilled water. ...Read more
No good reason: Nephritis does not relate to liquid type of intake. I see no benefit in mineral water in particular different than other types of water or liquids intake. ...Read more
Is there any benefit to drinking alkaline water with minerals? I'm thinking the water is good to make clear skin.

Is it true that drinking sparkling (carbonated) mineral water will lower your magnesium levels, and if so, why? Thank you.
There is absolutely no evidence that carbonated mineral water lowers levels of magnesium or other minerals. See http://tinyurl. Com/kojkd24
Soft drinks are acidifying and can leach calcium but not carbonated mineral water, in fact they offer varying amounts of magnesium and choosing a brand relatively high in magnesium will increase your levels- see http://tinyurl. Com/mk4ccxw ...Read more

Is it ok to drink mineral water your whole life we live in egy and water is not clean so we drink the water in bottles (mineral water)is it safe?
Water: Unfortunately, I can't comment on the quality of water in Egypt. For that matter, I can't comment on bottling quality in Egypt. Presumably your standards are reasonable enough. Rather than focus on things that you can't change, figure out variables that are under your control. ...Read more
I only drink mineral water, because tap water tastes bad. Its fairly alkaline (atleast 7, 4 pH).I usually drink 4 liter a day. Can it be bad for health?
Probably not.: Although you didn't tell us exactly what brand of water you're drinking, it is probably okay. The minerals and pH of the water will be unlikely to harm you. It is good to drink plenty of water, within reason, with a good goal being that you never feel thirsty and your urine is colorless or light yellow. Stay healthy! ...Read more
Plain water: Assuming that your water is potable (consumable by humans), you don't need anything fancy, eg bottled etc. Even fruit juice isn't ideal. Better to eat actual fruit which includes fiber etc rather than drink excess calories. Many studies suggest benefit from tea & coffee but still not clear as to how much how often of which kind. This assumes heart & brain aren't irritated by caffeine. ...Read more
I drink sparkling mineral water with "dissolved solids" per label. What does my body do with the dissolved solids in the water?
No: Nope...Your body is pretty good at regulating itself. The only problem you could face is that if you drink too much water without anything else (food/drink) then you can have some electrolyte issues because you are not replacing what the body loses. ...Read more
But also check in with your doc as well regularly, so any problems you might come across, be DX and properly sorted out.
Not eating at all is bad for you and most likely be impossible to do, as the body needs regular intake to run its basic functions, like the heart beating, breathing, function of the various organs, etc.
Good luck. ...Read more
