Is there any difference between the mineral water and ordinary drinking water?

Why do these kinds of water differ so much?  Natural mineral water is definitely different from the ordinary drinking water.

Each of the world-famous manufacturers of mineral water boasts a long history of its own with proof of water purity printed on every bottle for many years. The goal of a manufacturer is to keep that original water purity intact when it is bottled.

The drinking water manufacturers stick to a different ideology. First and foremost, they value the artificial purity of water. To achieve the goal, they subject the water to a heavy purification method which sometimes renders it distilled. Then some salts are added.

The consumer gets even more confused due to that terminology that is more relevant to mineral water. You can take a guess and try to classify the tap water once it is cleaned from chlorine, filtered and softened. It is like cleaning it through the kitchen filter on an industrial scale.

Drinking water manufacturers have been pretty jealous of the success gained by the mineral water brands with medicinal properties. They have been trying hard to make an impression of their products as being medicinal, natural, ecologically pure etc. The mineral salts in drinking water do not always get along well in terms of physiology. Any school pupil who did ok in a chemistry course can calculate the salt dosages of calcium, magnesium and hydrocarbonate.

For example, making mater by a technique that imitates its natural formation by filtering water with carbon dioxide through the marble and limestone. Then it could be enriched with dolomitic limestone, magnesium and calcium just like natural water. The content of chlorides and natrium would be significantly lowered. There have been a few attempts to stop the production of such water in the world, but to no avail due to low production costs.

Besides, specialists' opinions on the water purification process vary greatly. While being purified of any toxic substances and various salts, water might as well to acquire some harmful properties. That is what exactly happened in the artificial case, carcinogens developed in the water following its ozonization.

The basic differences between the drinking and mineral are as follows:

· produced from natural springs or drilled wells, no external influence whatsoever is involved as to the chemical and physical properties of water

· certain amounts of mineral salts contained by water along with residues of other substances and components

· water collected under conditions that guarantee its original microbiological purity and stability of its components  chemical makeup

Any civilized country society holds mineral water as a sacred object created by nature itself.
