Water is such an essential part of our lives, making up to 60% of our bodies. And being well-hydrated is one of those simple, everyday health-boosters we can do to ourselves to provide optimal function to our skin, joints, kidneys, bowels, blood pressure, circulation and much more. But since our bodies loose water constantly through breathing, sweating and digestion, it's important to rehydrate by drinking enough water as well as eating foods that contain water😉

In addition to just regular water, it's extra good to drink mineral water instead! Even a few glasses of mineral water every day can replace and rebalance electrolytes, which is super important to those who live in hot climates and exercise outdoors. It's also a huge calcium source, making mineral water a great option for those of us who avoid dairy products. In addition, mineral water helps boosting athletic performance, lowers cholesterol and removes aluminium from the body.

Most mineral waters contain up to 25 naturally-occuring ingredients, which are so good for our health. Especially bicarbonates and chloride, which support digestion; calcium, which helps us to have strong teeth, bones, muscle and heart; iron, which is crucial for healthy blood circulation; magnesium, which helps with immunity and energy production and sulfate, which supports detoxification👌

Speaking of mineral waters, a new natural mineral water brand called Haage has come to the market, providing a unique mineral water bottled straight from the ground from a small village called Haage in Southern Estonia. What makes this water unique is that it comes from agent Scandinavian glaciers that started melting already 25 000 years ago, going through a long way deep into the Estonian ground. There the water filtered in the soil and was enriched with ancient minerals, making the glacier water even cleaner and clearer and full of natural minerals. All this balance mineral content is altered by Haage into a natural mineral water😍💦

Now that we know about the importance of water and drinking mineral water, how can we adjust this into our everyday life and actually drink more water daily? Check below to see how:
