A chemical comparison between the ground water of the region and the fluids and tissues of the human body suggests that similar elements and compounds appear in both: hydrogen, oxygen, sodium, calcium, magnesium, chlorides and bicarbonates.
Water with a general mineral content of over 700mg of soluble elements per 1 liter are rare in the region. In Northern Poland, the only type of water with these important properties is Jantar Premium Mineral Water, which contains 819.48mg/dm3 of mineral elements. This is according to a study carried out by the National Institute for Public Health and The National Institute of Hygiene based in Poznan in October 2009 and is as true today as it was then.
Jantar Premium Mineral Water is classified as a mineral balanced water with a medium mineral content. So, what does this mean to you and me? Well simply put, too much mineral content and the body finds it hard to digest, wasting energy and thus negating some of the benefits of the water. Too little mineral content means that you are not getting enough of those important minerals, again negating the reason you are drinking such a water in the first place!. So Jantar Premium Mineral Water is perfectly balanced to give you just what your body needs, just when your body needs it most.
Taking into consideration the medical importance of those specific elements. Jantar Premium Mineral Water contains chlorides, bicarbonates, sodium and calcium as well as smaller amounts of other elements (magnesium, potassium, fluoride, iodide etc). These necessary minerals replenish electrolytes in the body which are responsible for the general well being of the bodies systems.
Sports science tells us that during physical actively we excrete salt and other minerals from the body in the form of sweat. If these electrolytes and minerals are not replenished the results are well known, weakness, fatigue and under performance of the individual both mentally and physically. In hot, arid climates the loss of these essential minerals can mean more then just loss of performance, they can be detrimental to the individuals health both in the short and the long term.
Drinking a chloride-sodium based water on such occasions allows the level of these minerals and salts to be raised and positively influences the bodies and the brains performance. The alkaline reaction (or PH balance) of Jantar is beneficial for humans in conjunction with the hypotonic concentration of ions which accelerates adsorption in the bodies cells. Our bodies cells have a PH balance of around the 7.5 mark, for a healthy individual, the PH balance of Jantar Premium Mineral Water is 7.5, our water is in tune with the PH balance of our bodies cells......a partnership on a cellular level!
So drinking a good water, a great water like Jantar Premium Mineral Water can have a number of beneficial effects for not only the individual participating in sports and physical actively but for the general day to day health of ourselves, down to a cellular level. What ever you are doing we need water, the fundamental element of life, all life. Without water we would not be here! Whether you are participating in sports, diet plans or just looking for more healthy lifestyle Jantar Premium Mineral Water should be your partner. Remember that children at an early age don't know the difference between being hungry and being thirsty! So ensuring your children drink a good water can have some major effects on their bodies and brains performance. We know that being well hydrated is important and most people now are conscious of what and how much they drink of any fluids.
In the October 2010 edition of National Geographic Magazine an article about hydration was published. The heading of this article was “Health” and the title of the article was “Shattering the Water Myth”. The article says that Hydration experts are now not to sure where the “8 x 8” rule comes from when it comes to drinking water (8 glasses of 8ozs of water per day). The article goes on to say that a U.S Army research scientist, Mike Sawka thinks that the origins of this rule may lie in a 1933 study on rodent hydration! This research led of a recommendation of 2.5 liters, or 84.5 ounces of liquid per day for a moderately active human which would make up for water lost to sweat and excretions. 20% typically comes from foods high in water – soups, ice cream, celery – leaving 67.6 ounces, or roughly “8 x 8”. (Exercise or heat adds to a body's needs). The article then goes on to say that our bodies are not shy about liquid desires and that the “body's needs to keep fluid trumps the small influence caffeine might have on losing fluid” says University of Connecticut exercise physiologist Douglas Casa. One important rule they say within the article is “hydrate before an intense workout”!!!
So it really is not about how much water/liquid you drink it is more about what you drink.......so drinking Jantar Premium Mineral Water really can make that important difference in your daily life! It can help increase or sustain performance while exercising or playing sports, it could help with your mental performance, while studying or at school or just help when your having a tough day at the office! AND it can make a very real difference in areas of the world that are hot and arid.
So what is it in Jantar Premium Mineral Water that makes it so good for the human body? There are a number of minerals that are found in most mineral classified waters (Jantar Mineral Water is classified as a "Medium mineral content water", which means a well balanced mineral water), and it is the amount of those noted minerals that can make the difference to your body and how it performs. We know that too much mineral content is tough for our bodies to breakdown and uses energy to do so, and too little is of little use at all! So drinking a water that is too high in minerals or drinking a water that has very little mineral content negates the reason you are drinking the water in the first place! Remember that Jantar Premium Mineral Water is absolutely pure and thanks to an ancestral ocean which was here over 300 million years ago our water has an ideal mineral balance.
Below you will find the main elements of our water and how and what they can do for your body:
Carbohydrate (HCO) @ 323mg/l - alkalizes stomach acids, helps maintain blood PH level and helps to lower blood-glucose levels.
Sodium (Na) @ 167mg/l - helps prevent overheating and sunstroke, ensures proper muscle and nerve system function.
Chlorides (CI) @ 213mg/l - helps to control blood pressure and helps maintain body fluids.
Magnesium (Mg) @ 16mg/l - essential for the function of immune system and nervous-muscular systems.
Calcium (Ca) @ 52mg/l - basic element of our bones.
N.B. mg/l stands for milligrams per liter.
