Mineral water is water that differs from ordinary water in terms of the amount of minerals, type of minerals and gas, as well as temperature. Mineral water flows from natural springs or springs created by artificial springs and fills them in a special container at the same source and carries them for consumption. Spring water generally contains salts that dissolve as water passes through the earth's surface. The amount of these salts in mineral waters is much higher and reaches at least one in a thousand.
Classification of mineral waters
Mineral waters are classified according to their composition: Acidic mineral water: These waters must contain at least one liter of one gram of free natural carbon dioxide. Sodium sulfate mineral water: The water of these springs contains sodium sulfate as well as sodium chloride and sodium bicarbonate. Bitter spring water: The most important chemical present in the water of these springs and makes them taste bitter is magnesium sulfate, but in addition to magnesium sulfate, most of them also contain sodium sulfate and sodium chloride. Sources of sodium chloride: In the water of these springs there is more than one gram of salts per liter and most of these salts are sodium chloride. Ferrous water: Waters that contain more than ten milligrams of iron in solution per liter of water, because ferrous water decomposes quickly and their iron precipitates, are usually drunk at the same source. Sulfur water: These waters contain free hydrogen sulfide or hydrosulfur or both (the smell of hydrogen sulfide is similar to the smell of rotten eggs) Calcareous water: These waters contain salts, most of which are calcium carbonate, magnesium carbonate, gypsum and carbonic anhydride. Arsenic-containing springs: These springs contain a small amount of arsenic, which has no lethal effect due to its small amount. Iodized water
Treatment with mineral water
The use of mineral waters has a very ancient history, but the scientific use of waters has been realized in the last century after recognizing their therapeutic effects. Mineral water has effects on the human body, especially in specific areas of the body, which are more severe when consumed directly from spring water (ie, the first point where mineral water appears). Mineral waters that exist in different places each have a special effect related to the same water because the composition of each mineral water is specific to the same region.
Carbonic anhydride dissolved in acidic water accelerates the motility of the intestinal mucosa and increases the amount of extracts that are poured into the intestine. As a result, digestion is accelerated. It also increases the hydrochloric acid produced in the stomach and has an appetizing effect. Alkaline waters also increase the activity of the stomach and eliminate stomach acid and are effective in treating joint pain. Bitter water has good effects on constipation and obesity. Drinking water from these springs is not good for the weak, anemic and infected people and the like. Ferrous waters are very useful for treating anemia. Sulfur water is prescribed for the treatment of rheumatism, skin diseases and metal poisoning. Drinking water from these arsenic springs is useful for relieving anemia and weakness caused by lack of food, etc. In them, it stimulates both the gastrointestinal tract and the throat glands to work and secrete. Calcareous waters are recommended in the treatment of kidney failure, and in the treatment of nerve disorders, and in the treatment of skin eczema, and so on. People with indigestion or obesity, or whose respiratory system is not working well, get better from drinking water from sodium chloride springs. Expand.
Mineral water compounds
Mineral water contains compounds such as iodine salts and arsenic compounds and sulfur compounds and radioactive substances and the like that are not found in ordinary water. Because the composition of the earth's crust is different in different places, the composition of mineral waters is also different.
