When you come to Bonneville Hot Springs Resort & Spa, not only can you soak in the mineral waters, you can also drink chilled mineral water from the source. Don’t worry. It’s safe. Minerals and trace elements are vital components of all living beings: people, animal and plants. There are three primary advantages to minerals in water:
1. Minerals, like calcium and magnesium, strengthen bones and skeletal tissues.
2. Many minerals and trace elements work as important catalysts for healthy chemical reactions, metabolic functions of cells, maintain PH balance and stimulate osmosis. Through osmotic pressure, beneficial minerals impact cellular metabolism. This action promotes detoxification, the breakdown of lipids or fats and stimulates a healthy chemical exchange.
3. Some minerals impact the beneficial function and role of vitamins, such as calcium allowing for better absorption of vitamin C.
Since ancient times spas and healing centers would grow up around mineral water sites because of the healing powers of the water. When you soak in the mineral-enriched waters, you’re taking in some of the best ingredients Mother Nature has to offer. The water at Bonneville Hot Springs contains sulfur (in the form of sulfates), silica, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, sodium, and carbonate. Combined, it’s the perfect remedy for joint inflammation, exfoliation, bone density, allergies, and more.
Just for clarification, the U.S. FDA classifies mineral water as “containing at least 250 parts per million total dissolved solids (TDS), and is also water coming from a source tapped at one or more holes or springs, originating from a geologically and physically protected underground water source.” At Bonneville, no minerals are added to the water. It’s pure, health-enriched, naturally wonderful water that you’ll find invigorating and relaxing all at once.
