What Type Of Water Is Best?
Posted on April 27th, 2021
Here at Aussie Gold, we know how important water is to your everyday life, and because of this, we wanted to compile some useful information about the importance of water, the different types of water as well as which water is the best for you.
Why is water important?
Firstly, water is important because it is an essential nutrient that keeps us hydrated. Interestingly, around 60% of our body weight is water, which is why we can’t go longer than 72 hours without it. Water is vital for our bodies to function properly – it energises our muscles, rejuvenates our skin and keeps us hydrated. MyDr recommends that adult men should drink 2.6L of water per day and that adult women should be drinking 2.1L of water a day.
What are the different types of water?
When considering the importance of water itself, you should also keep in mind the importance of the different types of water that you can drink and assess which of these are going to be the most beneficial to you and your body. The three main types of water that we will be considering are spring water, mineral water and distilled water.
What is spring water?
Spring water is famed for being retrieved directly from the natural source of water. It’s also bottled at its source, so you can rest assured that it contains natural nutrients and isn’t treated with chemicals to purify it. As such, spring water is often known for having a refreshing and clean taste.
What is mineral water?
Found in mineral springs, mineral water is known to contain the minerals calcium, magnesium and sulfur that have positive benefits for your body, amongst others that are artificially added. These minerals have a distinctive taste that doesn’t suit everyone’s, and some people have difficulty processing the minerals contained in mineral water.
What is distilled water?
Distilled water is water that has any potentially toxic metals and chemicals distilled out. Unfortunately, the distilling process also removes the vital nutrients that the body needs, which can lead to a mineral deficiency. This type of water also becomes acidic when it comes into contact with carbon dioxide, which can actually be harmful to the body rather than beneficial.
Which type of water is best?
Based on the pros and cons of each of these types of water, spring water has the greatest benefit as a result of its natural sources and vital nutrients, as well as its refreshing and enjoyable taste.
Here at Aussie Gold, we would strongly recommend our Aussie Gold Spring Water that has a sweet, natural taste due to its purity. Our spring water also contains all the vital nutrients that help your body to function thanks to the natural source aquifer of Mount Barmoya.
