When I buy anything – be it clothes, food, protein powder, or even office supplies – I make sure I get the most bang for my buck. This even goes for water.
You might be saying, “Wait – water?” Yes, even water! Because there is regular water, and then there is sparkling mineral water.
As we get ready for the annual Sparkling Detox challenge – where we’ll spend 5 days swapping out our usual beverages (coffee, tea, alcohol, juice, etc) for Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water – we wanted to tell you why we love this water, and why it’s the best way to hydrate (and of course, bring more sparkle to your life!).
Gerolsteiner sparkling mineral water is defined by purity, mineral-rich content, and its neutral taste. Since its discovery in the late 1800’s, it has become one of the world’s most popular all-natural sparkling mineral waters.
This is one of many reasons why Gerolsteiner is the mineral water for me. The essential mineral levels in this sparkling beverage are simply unreal! In just one liter – and I definitely drink more than one liter of water per day – Gerolsteiner gives me at least a quarter of the calcium and magnesium I need in a day.
To put this into context, you’d need to eat 12 cups of raw spinach to get that much magnesium! And I don’t know about you, but eating that much spinach would have my stomach in knots (hello, bloat!).
When choosing a mineral water, it’s important that it contains high levels of calcium and magnesium, as well as bicarbonate for its neutralizing effect. Also be sure to look out for a good balance between the minerals it contains because it makes a difference in the taste! A high sulfate content results in a bitter taste, while too much sodium and chloride result in a salty aftertaste.
Gerolsteiner, bottled at the Volcanic Eifel in Gerolstein, Germany, has a naturally occurring, just-about-perfect balance. Due to its unique source, this mineral water has 48 mg calcium, 108 mg magnesium, and 1.806 mg bicarbonate per liter. Thus Gerolsteiner tastes neither bitter nor salty – but has a pleasantly neutral, thirst quenching, and refreshing taste.
There’s never been a better time to get on your Gerolsteiner game! Until August 15, you can register for the Sparkling Detox by entering to win a case of Gerolsteiner to use to participate. Of course, if you don’t win a case, you can still sparkle with us! Follow @Gerolsteiner_USA and @FitApproach on Instagram to stay up-to-date on all things sparkly.
