Drinking bottled water is a convenient way to stay hydrated when you're on the go. However, it's important to be aware that some types of bottled water contain sodium.

While the sodium levels in most bottled water are within healthy limits, consuming large amounts of sodium can lead to nausea, vomiting, and in severe cases, heart problems. Sodium is added to purified water during the purification process to enhance the water's flavor since filtering impurities can also remove essential minerals that affect the taste.

Why Is Sodium Added to Bottled Water?

Sodium is commonly added to bottled water to improve its taste. Water undergoes a purification process to remove impurities like bacteria, viruses, and chemical pollutants, but this process can strip away minerals and affect the water's flavor. To avoid this, sodium is often added to purified water to enhance the taste.

If you're looking to make your drinking water even tastier and fortified with essential minerals, the MAYU Essential Mineral Drops and MAYU Swirl are exactly what you're looking for.

The MAYU Swirl uses a natural filtering process to remove impurities, improve structure, aerate the water, and balance pH levels, resulting in better taste and quality. The Essential Mineral Drops add important minerals like magnesium, chloride, (low) sodium, and 72 organic ionic trace minerals to your water.
