Mineral composition of drinking water and daily uptake

Rosborg, Ingegerd LU ; Nihlgård, Bengt LU and Ferrante, Margherita (2015) In Drinking Water Minerals and Mineral Balance: Importance, Health Significance, Safety Precautions p.25-31
Abstract

Conductivity in mS/m or S/cm gives a rough idea of the amount of dissolved ions in water. Distilled water and reverse osmosis–treated water have extremely low conductivity, while the conductivity of water from sandstone is higher and that of water from limestone (hard water) even higher. Thus, the variation of the contribution of minerals from drinking water is large. A Swedish study on well waters, bottled waters, and municipal waters showed that the contribution to the daily intake of minerals from water varied from zero to well over 100 %.
