You’re looking for an alternative to tap water and the chlorine and other chemicals it contains, and you see that purified water and natural spring water are two options. But which is better and why? With proper hydration being such an important part of overall health, it’s important that you have the facts before making your choice.
First, there are a couple definitions to be aware of. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA), in order to be categorized as purified water, water must be “treated by distillation, reverse osmosis, or another suitable process” in order to meet defined standards.
Spring water is defined as water “derived from an underground formation from which water flows naturally to the surface, this water must be collected only at the spring or through a borehole that taps the underground formation feeding the spring.”
While purified water goes through a process to remove particles and contaminants like lead, mercury, and arsenic, it’s important to note that in many cases it begins as tap water. Also, while filtering out harmful chemicals is good, the process also removes vital minerals such as calcium, magnesium, and potassium, which is not good.
While it might seem like the most enjoyable drinking water would consist of nothing but water molecules, that’s incorrect. Water taste testing consistently shows that the minerals naturally found in water have a positive impact on the taste. Plus, your body needs those substances.
Natural Spring Water
Natural spring water is collected from officially recognized sources like our artesian spring. These underground sources are isolated from many of the environmental impacts of public and even private water sources. As a result, spring water is known for being naturally free of manmade contamination or manipulation, and for demonstrating balanced mineral content.
Interestingly, each spring has a unique mineral composition that gives its water a slightly different flavor profile.
Nature’s Recipe for the Best Water
Minerals are essential to good health and good flavor. Fortunately, nature has the recipe for ultimate refreshment! That’s why natural spring water beats filtered water hands down.
Eldorado Natural Spring Water in particular comes from a unique underground aquifer in Colorado. It’s a deep, isolated artesian source that naturally filters out what you don’t need and leaves in what you do. This incredible “gift” to everyone who loves clean, healthy, delicious water has won multiple awards for best tasting water.
