If you’re looking for some tasty and healthy drinks that use refreshing mineral water, you’ve come to the right place. These three sips deliver nourishing minerals to help you look and feel your best!

How Mineral Water Heals

Mineral water extracted from natural springs is rich in essential nutrients like magnesium and calcium. Our picks: San Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water (Buy a 33.8-ounce  bottle from Walmart, $8.92) and Perrier Sparkling Water (Buy a 6-pack from Walmart, $5.98)

Speeds metabolism: Alkalizing minerals in the water tamp down on thyroid-damaging waste, prompting the production of metabolism-boosting hormones. The effect is so powerful that, per research in the journal Obesity, the folks who sip mineral water drinks slim 44 percent faster than those who skip it.

Nixes heartburn: A mineral water refresher can help ease heartburn in as little as 10 minutes, say German scientists. Credit goes to the alkaline minerals, like magnesium, that neutralize reflux-causing stomach acid and soothe irritated throat tissue.

Lowers cholesterol: Fizzy mineral water can help your body clear out LDL “bad” cholesterol, according to research in The Journal of Nutrition. The reason? The minerals speed fat metabolism, which helps move bad cholesterol out of the body — an effect that’s been shown to reduce LDL cholesterol by as much as 15 percent.
