Lithium is a trace element used for its properties as a neuroregulator, tranquillizer and neuropsychic sedative.
Sodium is a mineral salt that is necessary for the ionic equilibrium of the body. Sodium has a stimulating effect on the cells of the bone system and is important for the work of the muscles, enabling their contractions.
Potassium is a mineral salt that is essentially intracellular, and that helps with the ionic equilibrium of the body. Potassium is important for sending nerve impulses as well as releasing energy from protein, fat and carbohydrates during metabolism.
Calcium is one of the main minerals in the human body. It represents 1.8% of the bodyweight of an adult. 99% of this calcium is located in the human skeleton and teeth. Calcium helps to prevent osteoporosis.
Magnesium is important for many functions in the body. It has an effect on the balance of the nervous and muscular systems. Magnesium plays an important role in the distribution of signals from nerve cells in the production of proteins and regulation of the heart rate. Furthermore, magnesium adjusts the operation of the gastrointestinal tract.
Among the unique benefits of the “Pirin Spring” mineral water is the presence of metasilicic acid in quantities identical to those in defined physiochemical therapeutic rate.
Metasilicic acid is defined also as one of the important factors counteracting the aging process of the body.
The presence of silicium (Si) into the water, contributes to a smoother skin, flexible joints and healthy bones.
Conductivity is defined as the quality of dissolved materials in the water, and depends mainly on the solubility of the rocks and soils the water seeps through. Market researches about the taste of mineral waters show that the consumers prefer waters with conductivity between 300-350 ms/cm.
Fluoride ion is a trace element with strong tropism for the bones and teeth. In combination with regular brushing of teeth, it contributes to good dental hygiene. Fluoride hardens bones and teeth and helps prevent caries. Tea is the food product containing the highest amount of fluoride.
Chloride along with sodium (Na), retains the osmotic pressure in the cells. As elements of gastric acid, they play an important role in digestion.
Sulfate detoxifies the liver metabolism, stimulates the function of the gallbladder and activates digestion.
Bicarbonates are mineral salts which play an essential role in the balance of basic acids in the system. They have a favorable effect on the digestive system. The content of 140-150 mg/ l HCO3– in the water “Pirin Spring” is the optimal amount for stimulating easier recovery of the body after alcohol abuse.
The pH value represents water’s acidity and alkalinity. If the pH value is less than 6.5, the water is considered as acid. If the pH is between 6.5-12.5, the water is alkaline. Pirin Spring is a slightly alkaline water. These waters neutralize and flush out toxins and acidic waste to improve the wellbeing of the body. Cancer cells do not thrive in an alkaline environment while healthy ones do.
The pH is directly dependent on the structure of the ground layers through which water passes while surfaced. Water with a pH of about 8, are defined as slightly alkaline. Experts agree that a slightly alkaline mineral waters are excellent tonic and stimulant. This type of waters accelerate the biological processes in the body, improve the absorption of food, impart energy and alertness.
