Evian natural mineral water comes from natural underground reservoirs and mineral springs, giving it a higher mineral content than tap water.
Minerals that are often present in mineral water include:
However, mineral water may undergo some processing. This can include adding or removing carbon dioxide (CO2) gas or eliminating toxic substances, such as arsenic.
CO2 helps prevent oxidation and limits bacterial growth in mineral water. Naturally carbonated water gets its CO2 from the source. Manufacturers can also infuse their water with CO2 after extraction. Mineral water can be sources of magnesium. This nutrient plays essential roles in regulating blood pressure, blood glucose levels, and nerve function.
Some sources have more or less magnesium than others. The amount of magnesium in water can range from 1 milligram per liter (mg/l) to more than 120 mg/l, depending on the source.
The daily recommended allowance for magnesium is as follows:
- 310–320 mg for adult females
- 400–420 mg for adult males
According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, most people in the U.S. consume less than the recommended amount of magnesium.
Below are some symptoms of magnesium deficiency:
- loss of appetite
- muscle weakness
- nausea and vomiting
A severe deficiency may cause some of the following:
- numbness or tingling
- muscle cramps
- low calcium or potassium levels
- mood changes
- an irregular heartbeat
Mineral water rich in magnesium may therefore help lower the risk of cardiovascular disease.
