It is not a secret that the best way to quench thirst when it is warm outside is to drink cool mineral water or cool common water. If you suffer from overweight, you should drink pure mineral water instead of sweet juices and teas.
The amount of consumed water is individual for every person; however, it is well-known fact that water is necessary for everyone. The shops are full of all kinds of mineral water. Let’s try to figure out how to choose right water, which not only quenches thirst but also provides the body with essential minerals.
First of all, pay attention to the location of water well. If you live in megacity and the well is situated not far from it, so such water can hardly be called clean. There are few environmentally natural sources left.
Now let’s talk about the naturalness of water. It is no secret that shops are full of artificially mineralized water. Some water is bottled in its original form, which means that it contains minerals and substances which were given to it by nature. A lot of producers pass water through a complex filtration system and then mineralize artificially. Unfortunately, for costumer it is impossible to identify the «artificial» water and natural water. You just have to understand that cheap water cannot be natural. It will not do you harm, but at the same time it will not make you healthier.
