Mineral water is water containing not less than 250 parts per million (ppm) total dissolved solids (TDS), coming from a source tapped at one or more bore holes or springs, originating from a geologically and physically protected underground water source. No minerals may be added to this water. Spring water is water derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface of the earth. Spring water shall be collected only at the spring or through a bore hole tapping the underground formation feeding the spring.
Keeping our bodies well hydrated is a basic component of a healthy lifestyle. Water balance is maintained by thirst and urination. There is a great deal of evidence that "hard waters " (containing Calcium & Magnesium) are healthier than the "soft waters" (those lacking minerals). "Calcium in drinking water is more bioavailable than calcium in food" . The heart protecting factor in hard drinking water is believed to be primarily magnesium.
