Your body needs calcium to build and maintain strong bones. Your heart, muscles and nerves also need calcium to function properly. Some studies suggest that calcium, along with vitamin D, may have benefits beyond bone health: perhaps protecting against cancer, diabetes and high blood pressure.
Magnesium contributes to the maintenance of normal bone, normal muscle function and the electrolyte balance. In addition, magnesium contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism, cell division as well as protein synthesis.
Balances fluids in the body. Helps send nerve impulses. Needed for muscle contractions. Influences blood pressure; even modest reductions in sodium consumption can lower blood pressure.
The health benefits of potassium include relief from stroke, blood pressure, heart and kidney disorders, anxiety and stress, as well as enhanced muscle strength, metabolism, water balance, electrolytic functions, and nervous system.
Alkalinity is a measure of the acid-neutralizing capacity of water. It is an aggregate measure of the sum of all titratable bases in the sample. Based on the alkalinity as CaCO3 Thirsti’s water hardness is classified as soft.
Chloride is found in many chemicals and other substances in the body. It is an important part of the salt found in many foods and used in cooking. Chloride is needed to keep the proper balance of body fluids. It is an essential part of the digestive juices.
has two beneficial effects: preventing tooth decay and contributing to healthy bones.
pH is a measure of how acidic/basic water is. The range goes from 0 – 14, with 7 being neutral. pHs of less than 7 indicate acidity, whereas a pH of greater than 7 indicates a base.
