Minerals: 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?

Likely nothing: 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Is it more healthy to drink filtered water rather than nature spring water with minerals?

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 more

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

Is it true that drinking sparkling (carbonated) mineral water will lower your magnesium levels, and if so, why? Thank you.

Is it true that drinking sparkling (carbonated) mineral water will lower your magnesium levels, and if so, why? Thank you.

Not true: 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

What is the best drink to health other than mineral water and fruit juice?

What is the best drink to health other than mineral water and fruit juice?

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

Does reverse osmosis water leach minerals out of our bones if we drink it?

Help please! Is drinking mineral water, not eating, and doing exercise good for weight loss?

Yes,: 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
