I drink R/O water exclusively and I am dealing with anxiety, depression, and sugar cravings. What trace minerals do you recommend? I am otherwise healthy and at a normal weight. Been doing bone broth 5x a week. Have cut down on grains and... (more)

You could get liquid minerals. I use the Concentrace Brand and I squirt a bit into my R/O water. I'm not so sure the sugar cravings are related to this. Usually with sugar cravings, ALA and L-Glutamine powder help. You'd take the ALA... (more)

Since I've gone paleo about a month ago, I'm searching for alternative healthy drinks. My current favourites are Kefir and natural mineral water. Mineral water is highly available in my country (and you cannot find carbonated water anywhere). The... (more)

So I've been seeing this water brand "Blk." I'm curious, because it seems strange to me to infuse water with "fulvic trace minerals", or infuse water with anything in the first place. So is there anyone here who drinks it? Love it? Hate... (more)

what's more silly is that people buy water infused with sugar, artificial color and crap and pay just as much for it- called "soda," and they think it has some value (or at least don't question it). In this case, it may be a equally absurd, but... (more)

Lithium (Li) is a trace mineral, used in the treatment of bipolar disorder at doses hundreds of times higher than that from diet. The main dietary sources are vegetables and grains, followed by dairy. The concentration in water varies widely:... (more)

Lithium as a trace element in the diet is, IMHO, overlooked. Interestingly, lithium increases the impact of iodine on the thyroid, something to beware when supplementing both. Lithium causes some hypothyroidism (particularly at high levels). Some... (more)

I recently stumbled across a brand of mineral water unlike anything I have ever seen. First off its black. Yes black as in the color of the water but supposedly it still taste like water. According to the website: "Blackwater is our proprietary... (more)

I'm cool with fulvic acid supplements, but I do have a problem with companies that don't disclose their ingredients, claiming their formula is proprietary. I also view the shipping of heavy glass bottles full of liquid as wasteful compared to... (more)

It seems you can buy flat and carbonated mineral water. Is there a notable difference between the two other than taste? The main difference that I can come up with is that the gas may be bad for bloating and heartburn. Perhaps there is an impact... (more)

Carbonated water is slightly acidic. So it's possible it will damage teeth, but nowhere near what sugared sodas do. Other than that, if it gets you to drink water, it's not that bad IMHO.

Perfect Health Diet recommends mineral water and I would like to try some. Unfortunately, I poured over the hundreds of choices for water at my supermarket and not a single one is mineral water. I am considering checking out Whole Foods and Amazon... (more)

Natural mineral waters with high concentrations of magnesium and bicarbonate ions have long been prized for their health promoting qualities. The famous Apollinaris water contains 104 mg/L of magnesium, but unfortunately is also fairly high in... (more)

First, a digression. I use unrefined salt. It's about 98% sodium chloride, but it also has a lot of trace minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, etc. Most salt is refined. They take the original salt, strip all the trace minerals, add a... (more)

I for some reason always get a headache if I drink too much mineral water. It's happened with Perrier, Gerolsteiner, Apollinaris etc. I'm guessing that the carbonation is what causes it, but I can't be sure. Supposedly we used to get nearly all... (more)
