Enrichment of water with minerals and magnesium
The best and most reliable method of water filtration to the drinking state today is reverse osmosis treatment. Thus, water is 99% free of all possible contaminants, impurities, suspended solids, salts, iron and organic matter, including bacteria and viruses. It is believed that by passing through the reverse osmosis membrane, which has a purification rating of 0.0001 µm, the water becomes "technically empty". This means that such water has a very low content of various salts, which could have a negative impact on the human body when consumed raw.
To avoid this kind of negative phenomena, most reverse osmosis systems use a water salinity module. The main function of this module is to saturate the water with a useful amount of natural minerals and trace elements for the human body.
It should be noted that such amounts of minerals and trace elements are optimal for the human body:
- Calcium - 34 mg/l
- Sodium - 22 mg/l
- Magnesium - 12 mg/l
- Carbon dioxide - 10 mg/l
- Fluorine - 0.06 mg/l
- Potassium - 8.5 mg/l
- Chlorides - 0.8 mg/l
- Sulphates - 0.3 mg/l
Due to the content of natural dolomite and calcite minerals, the mineralization module saturates osmotic water with these elements. Thus, the concentration of minerals in water in the duct is about 0.2 mg/l, which is an acceptable optimum for raw water consumption. In addition, one of the functions of the mineralizer is to balance the pH of the water so that it is as close as possible to 7.0-7.5. This is the benchmark for your blood. Thanks to the mineralization function, you will be able to use water purified by reverse osmosis technology with complete confidence.
Why enrich the water with magnesium?
Magnesium is one of the most important nutrients that have a positive effect on the heart, muscles, and nervous system. Its sufficient intake into the body improves performance, normalizes heart rate, improves sleep. You can get this useful substance not only from food but also from drinking water. However, it is necessary to use special water filters, which are equipped with cartridges with magnesium ions.
How does magnesium deficiency manifest itself in the body?
Statistics show that more than 70% of people around the world have a magnesium deficiency. The reason for this deficiency lies in the modern diet, which is unable to meet the daily needs of this element in the human body. The first sign of deficiency is increased fatigue, which is accompanied by a decrease in appetite, the appearance of weakness, especially at mental or physical activity. If the deficit is greater, the immunity is reduced and the following symptoms may develop:
- numbness in the extremities;
- heart rhythm disturbance;
- increased levels of adrenaline and cortisol in the blood, resulting in insomnia, irritation;
- constant hunger, resulting in excess weight;
- acute manifestations of premenstrual syndrome in women.
Lack of magnesium in the diet can cause hypertension, heart disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, so it is essential to maintain its optimal balance in the body.
Why is it necessary to enrich the water with magnesium?
According to research, the human body contains between 21 and 28 grams of magnesium (the bulk of it is in the bones). But this amount is not enough to maintain health. On average, a person should receive 320-420 milligrams of this element per day, because it is essential for protein synthesis, regulation of blood glucose levels, full muscle, and nervous system function. Support for normal magnesium levels gives the body energy, has many positive effects:
- it relieves emotional and physical stress;
- increases efficiency;
- makes your sleep more relaxed and deep;
- maintains healthy teeth and bone tissue;
- regulates the tone of blood vessels;
- participates in muscle contraction and nerve impulse transmission, which is important for the cardiovascular system;
- enhances memory, thinking.
Most magnesium is found in food, especially in walnuts, soybeans, bananas, cocoa beans. However, to determine the exact amount of the substance in the food is almost impossible, in addition, its digestibility is quite low, so experts recommend getting the element not only from food but also from drinking water.
Ways to enrich drinking water
To enrich the water with magnesium, special filters are used, which saturate the liquid with valuable elements and make it useful for human health. The most common are water purifiers with ion exchange resins, which contain magnesium ions, i.e. in a magnesium form. During filtration, the resin easily and quickly gives the water the necessary elements.
Another way to saturate the liquid is to add magnesium minerals granules to the filter mixtures. For this purpose, flow filters or special mineralizers are used, which are installed in combination with reverse osmosis systems. Thanks to their use, the water acquires a more pleasant taste, improves its organoleptic characteristics and mineral composition.
When purchasing filtering devices, you should choose filters wisely and give preference to products from proven manufacturers. Enrichment of water with magnesium occurs only when the quality of the backfill. If poor quality filter mixtures are used, the level of magnesium enrichment with such materials will be significantly lower than necessary.
Special water filters are considered one of the best solutions on the market for enriched drinking water. They are designed with a cartridge of magnesium ions, which saturates water with useful elements in the first and second stages of water treatment. The fluid passing through the filter is perfectly clean, mineralized, and does not require boiling before drinking.
Most often such filters refer to flow filters, which are installed under the sink.
Thanks to the filters, it is possible to significantly improve the quality of drinking water. One liter of purified liquid will contain up to 30 mg of magnesium, so if you consume 1.5-2 liters per day, you can fill at least one-third of the daily requirement for this valuable mineral.
