Drinking Water Minerals and Mineral Balance: Importance, by Ingegerd Rosborg

By Ingegerd Rosborg

The a variety of safeguard businesses engaged on consuming water all warn approximately dangerous components, in addition to components that may reason corrosion or scaling on pipes and installations. despite the fact that, consuming water can also offer a considerable part of the day-by-day mineral consumption, specifically for the aged and kids, or these prone to deficiencies because of dangerous consuming conduct or hunger. hence, a holistic method of ingesting water is gifted during this ebook and the scope is prolonged from criteria for bad elements to the elemental mineral composition of water, interpreting 22 nutrient components and ions and 21 poisonous ingredients. The functionality of the nutrition within the physique, signs of deficiency and overload, and merits of the minerals from ingesting water are offered, in addition to indicators of poisonous components from ingesting water. The authors additionally recommend fit levels of minerals and mineral ratios for ingesting water. The ebook bargains a precious source for the wellbeing and fitness overview of consuming waters, for personal good vendors, public water manufacturers and protection agencies alike.

2 6–8 ­ ethods are used to quantitatively analyze the major minerals in water, and about m 55 other elements have been found in extremely trace amounts detectable by very ­sensitive methods like ICP-MS or similar methods (Rosborg et al. 2005). To get a rough idea of the amount of dissolved ions in water, the conductivity in millisiemens per meter (mS/m) or microsiemens per cm (μS/cm) is measured. This electrical conductivity (EC) is measured between two metal plates, and it is a simple, but very cheap, robust and informative measurement.

Diets based on processed foods are high in Na and low in K (Adrogue and Madias 2007). MAX) carried out in France, showing that a large fraction of the French population ingest less than 2/3 of the amounts proposed for vitamins and minerals in the recommended nutritional intakes (Bourre 2006). If a daily energy need of 2,100 kcal is satisfied by plant materials (2/3 of energy) and animal food (1/3 of energy) (considered as a “Natural diet”) the daily intake of Na is approximately 500 mg, that of K about 7,400 mg, Ca approximately 1,100 mg, and Mg about 800 mg.
