Värska Water

Natural mineral waters contain abundant minerals, biologically active components, ions, gases and more and they can have therapeutic properties. Natural mineral water has formed over thousands of years and it is difficult to synthetically recreate all of its properties.  

Natural mineral water falls into several different classifications, depending on the concentration of ions. The therapeutic effect of the water is primarily from the ions.

  • Hydrocarbonate-rich water helps lower the pH of stomach acid,
  • chloride-rich water stimulates gastric and pancreatic secretions,
  • sulphate-rich water restores gastric and cholangial function.
  • sodium-rich water helps regulate arterial pressure,
  • magnesium-rich water helps the body cope with stress,
  • iron-rich water wards off anaemia.
