Spring Water Health

In theory, drinking spring water is health promoting. But as is the case with all types of drinking water, the water source is the key.

True spring water is captured from a natural, mountain, or artesian spring. When harvested properly, spring water is sparkling clean.

Since water is one of the most critical components of the body, even minimal dehydration can hinder your sports performance and ability to recover from any type of exercise.

The reason for this is simple: water composes about 75 percent of muscle tissue and about 10 percent of fatty tissue.

But more importantly, water regulates body temperature, aids digestion, protects vital organs, cushions joints, facilitates cellular communication, transports nutrients to the cells, and removes waste, including lactic acid (the primary cause of exercise-related muscle soreness).

Health Benefits of Drinking Spring Water

One of the key benefits of natural spring water is that it comes from water that flows to the surface from a clean underground water source. Thus, the water is considered to be free of most contaminants typically found in drinking water. It also contains a level of minerals that is beneficial to health for most living things. Mineral-rich water will usually have a neutral or slightly alkaline pH.

Drinking alkaline water will help to neutralize acidity in the body and can reduce the amount of free radical damage. It will also help to keep bones and teeth strong and dense.

Many people who drink spring water do so because the water has such a clean, refreshing taste that is unequaled by other waters. People generally tend to drink more water if it tastes good. Drinking enough water daily is one of the most basic foundations of optimal health.

Drinking Bottled Spring Water

If you can get drinking water from a local natural spring that is tested regularly for contaminants, you are lucky. Collecting and drinking your own spring water is your best choice—in terms of both water quality and expense. However, bottled spring water is another story because you never really know the quality of water you’re getting—or if it’s even spring water! According to the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), bottled water is inadequately regulated by the FDA, which allows bottlers to call their product “spring water,” even if it doesn’t actually come from a natural spring.

In addition, the marketing for many bottled waters suggests that the water comes from pristine sources, such as mountain springs or glaciers, when it does NOT.

In fact, up to 40 percent of all bottled water actually comes from tap water, regardless of what it says on the bottle label. And to make matters worse, the bottled spring water may be treated with chemical disinfectants such as chlorine.

Summary

Thus, drinking spring water is healthy—if you know that the water is, in fact, from a natural spring and has not been treated with chemicals.

  5. I want to try this spring water. But most of them are bottled. How can I make sure that it’s from a natural spring and has not been treated with chemicals?

    • Hi Jane, the Mineral Spring is designated as a public water supply by the State of Mass. The water comes out of the Spring in its natural state. No Chemicals are added to it. The water is filtered thru a 20 micron bag filter and UV light. No reverse osmosis. The pH averages 7.8. You bring your own bottles to fill.
