Salt or the sodium chloride is an essential mineral for the adequate functioning of the body, but only in limited quantities, because otherwise there is the risk of occurrence of cardiovascular diseases. Mineral water along with the food consumed daily represents an aspect that we must not ignore and AQUA Carpatica is the solution.
What is sodium?
Sodium is present in the human body in a quantity of approximately 100 g and is a mineral especially responsible for the nervous and muscular system. Sodium is contained by the blood in approximately 3.3 g of sodium per litre and adjusts, together with potassium, the cellular processes and the membrane electrical phenomena.
Sodium and the body. A healthy and balanced diet can beneficially influence the heart diseases – it has a role both in their prevention and amelioration. A correct diet, combined with a healthy lifestyle that must necessarily include physical exercise, may significantly reduce the risk of cardiac, coronary diseases, myocardial infarction and cerebrovascular accidents.
The hypertensive patients should be particularly careful about the consumption of sodium, in order to avoid high blood pressure. When the consumption of sodium is higher than allowed, the kidneys cannot process the excess salt and thus appears the risk of kidney failure and heart diseases.
What do the doctors say?
Doctors’ recommendation both for hypertensive persons and for the ones with cardiovascular diseases is to consume mineral water with a content of sodium below 20mg/l.
Thanks to its sodium-free content of AQUA Carpatica – both spring and naturally sparkling – is an ideal water for a low-sodium dietary plan, at the same time balancing the immune system.
The sodium-free content of AQUA Carpatica natural spring water recommends it as a natural spring water suitable for the daily diet. It is ideal for the persons with heart diseases and for hypertensive persons, for those making sustained physical effort or for preparing baby formula.
AQUA Carpatica naturally sparkling water, with a content of sodium of 5,3mg/l and zero nitrates, is a pure microbiologically and physically-chemically pure water. Its consumption may compensate for the lack of minerals in the body by the intake of ionic concentrations of magnesium, calcium or potassium, due to the very good level of mineralization of macro and microelements.
Sparkling water, excluded from diets?
If the water is naturally sparkling, it can be included in the diets of hypertensive persons and persons with cardiac diseases, contributing to the metabolism processes.
Although a sparkling water, AQUA Carpatica naturally sparkling mineral water contains natural carbon dioxide, unlike other waters with a content of CO2 that is artificially charged. Thus, contrary to the beliefs that sparkling water is not recommended in diets, the naturally sparkling water helps the digestive processes of the body.
The daily consumption of one litre of AQUA Carpatica naturally sparkling water assures 60-70% of the necessary level of calcium for an adult, and 40-50% of the necessary level of calcium of a child respectively, determined on the premise a vitamin intake adequate to the age.
Also the daily consumption of one litre of AQUA Carpatica naturally sparkling water assures 20-25% of the physical level of potassium, calculated on the premise of a normal calorie intake.
