When human organism is properly hydrated, the blood is 94% water, and when body is dehydrated, especially for a long period of time, blood becomes thick and complicates blood circulation, thus contributing to increased blood pressure. Besides this thing, the dehydration increases production of cholesterol to prevent losing the additional liquid from the cells.
This way, a regular liquid consumption assures a proper function of the entire body & contributes to maintain heart health by preventing appearance of two important risk factors as high cholesterol level in blood & hypertension.
How can the minerals from natural carbonated water influence heart health?
Water is one of the most recommended liquids for an optimal hydration of the body and cannot be replaced by any other liquid. Water with a rich amount of natural minerals helps filling the daily need of minerals essential for heart health like calcium, magnesium and potassium.
Alongside with magnesium, it plays an important role in a proper function of cardiovascular system, by assuring regular heart beats, but also to the nervous system, being a remedy against insomnia and essential in transmission of nervous impulses.
It is an essential element for body health. Together with calcium, and phosphorus, contributes maintain a physical condition because it plays an important role in metabolic processes, energy production, synthesizing of acids & proteins, it plays a role in muscles relaxation, prevents diabetes and kidneys stones and adjusts the metabolism. Lack of magnesium can affect cardiac system, being essential to adjust heart beats.
Represents a mineral (metal) alkaline, which plays an important role in human body: maintain electrolytic system of human body by supporting cardiac activity, stimulating heart to beat regularly. Presence of potassium is also important for brain, potassium extracts sodium from body which means it helps maintain body weight.
