You would think that a silly question and the answer be a no brainer, right??? Well, wrong on both counts. You should take a look at that bottle of water you picked up off the store shelf. They are not all the same.
Take this bottle of water that I grabbed recently. An ingredients list for this bottle of water should look like this: Water!!! However, it actually looks like this.
Purified water, good
Magnesium sulfate, ?
Potassium Bicarbonate, really??
Potassium Chloride, wtf???
Let’s just look at these briefly –
Magnesium Sulfate – it is an inorganic salt which is a chemical compound and is commonly known as ‘Epsom Salt” – you know; the stuff you soak your achy feet in.
Potassium Bicarbonate – an odorless, colorless, salty substance that the FDA “generally recognizes as safe” – oh, and it is one of the items that made up the chemical compound found in a fire extinguisher!
Potassium Chloride – another odorless, colorless salt substance, and also a chemical compound. Potassium Chloride is best known as “muriate of potash” A name that is associated with “fertilizer”
This particular water was purchased from Sam’s Club, Distributed by Wal-Mart.
Bottom line, not all waters are created equal. Please pay attention to your bottled water. Know what you are drinking. And drink up!!
