You may be advised to drink at least 2 litres of fluids a day. However, this is not a measure for everyone. Adults with average physical activity in determining the
appropriate amount of water can use a simple conversion factor: 30 ml of water per 1 kg of body weight (so the recommendation of 2 liters applies to a person weighing
about 66 kg).However, it is worth remembering about situations when the need for water is greater - heat, intense training, breastfeeding, fever. Not everyone knows
that the amount of water supplied to our body should increase when we change our diet to a more caloric one. The rule is simple: 1 more calorie equals 1 ml more water.
Cheap, tasty, thirst-quenching - do we need anything more? Of course. Water should also provide us with minerals necessary for the proper functioning of the body.
Spring water, unfortunately, cannot boast of this. A maximum of 500 mg in a liter bottle are trace amounts. What's more, daily consumption of it can lead to leaching of
minerals from the body. However, it is perfect for cooking - it does not contain chlorine, is chemically and microbiologically clean, and has the advantage over tap
water that it is not dependent on the condition of the sewage system in our apartment. Spring water is recommended in the diet of infants and young children - their
immature digestive systems are not ready to accept large amounts of minerals contained in mineral waters.
For people with digestive system problems, such as gastroesophageal reflux, mineral waters with an increased content of bicarbonates can be a relief. In addition,
which not everyone knows, they inhibit the development of diabetes by lowering the level of sugar in the blood and urine. It's still not everything! Do you have
problems with constipation? Try water with lots of sulfates. It is hard to disagree with the statement that mineral water is liquid health. If you want to make sure that the
electrolyte balance is maintained in your body, perform the electrolyte level tests based on blood analysis.
Chlorinated, polluted by pesticides and heavy metals - these are the most frequently mentioned defects of tap water demonized for many years. But tap water is not
as terrible as it is painted! Using carbon or osmotic filters, you can completely purify tap water and consume it without remorse. It will fulfill its basic role: it will hydrate
our body. However, let's not forget about the need to provide ourselves with minerals. This is not always possible with a proper diet, which is why doctors and
nutritionists recommend drinking water with a high mineral content. Nothing easier!
For tap water filtration, we can use filters that have a built-in mineralizer. However, if we want (or are forced to) control the type and amount of minerals supplied to
the body, we can buy mineral supplements available in stores for athletes.
