5 good reasons for drinking wellness water
Lauretana is a light water: with only 14 milligrams per liter TDS (the quantity of minerals contained) it promotes a high diuresis that helps the organism to eliminate the residues of metabolism such as urea and creatinine.
Measured in French degrees (°F), it expresses the content of salts of the water, mainly Calcium and Magnesium; Lauretana is a soft water with only 0,44° F. This low hardness helps to prevent the development of kidney stones.
Lauretana pH is 6. Being slightly acidic, it helps digestion and contributes to preventing the oxidation processes. To calculate the effect of food on the acid- base equilibrium of the organism do not consider its pH but the so-called potential renal acid load (PRAL). Lauretana water is slightly alkalizing (PRAL - 0.7 mEq/d) but close to neutrality.
Lauretana is a water of high purity; the source, situated at an altitude of 1050 m asl, is supposedly powered by the glaciers, far from waste disposal sites, industrial settlements, livestock farming or any other sources of pollution that could compromise its quality. Lauretana is bottled as born from the source.
5. SODIUM FREE
Even if the content of sodium of a drinking water does not influence much the daily balance, we must take into account that the Western diet is too rich in sodium. Lauretana, besides the low TDS content, has also a very low quantity of sodium (only 1,2 milligrams per liter) hence stimulating the diuresis and at the same time helping hydration.
