About The Water


Drinking water is good for your health. Drinking good water is even better.

Lauretana’s glacial springs are located at 1,050m above sea level in one of the greenest valleys of Piedmont. This alpine location is completely untouched and far from any industrial or residential settlements, keeping the source pristine and far from danger of contamination.

The long underground watercourse from the glaciers to the spring twists through the deep windings of the crystalline rocks of Monte Rosa and the surrounding peaks. This rocky river bed in the roots of the ancient geological formations filters and preserves the water making it microbiologically pure without the need to process or filter the water prior to bottling.

This exceptional purity makes it an ideal choice for the health-conscious. Water cleanses, hydrates and rejuvenates the body, removing toxins, replenishing vital fluids and refreshing the skin and palette. Lauretana water, with its fixed residue of 14 mg/l, low sodium and slightly acid PH of 6 is an optimum source of hydration and aids the body in thsese important functions.

 

The Science of Pure Water

Fixed residue (index of lightness) 14mg per litre

A water’s ‘index of lightness’ refers to the residual solids remaining (in mg) after one litre of water is boiled to 180 degrees. The lower the fixed residue, the lighter the water. Lauretana’s fixed residue of 14mg/L has lead to its classification as the lightest European mineral water. The low fixed residue aids the process of diuresis and water replacement enhancing hydration and the removal of toxins from the body.
 

PH level of 6

PH level indicates the extent to which a chemical is acid (PH of below 7) or alkaline (PH above 7). Lauretana’s slightly acid PH of 6 reduces the process of oxidation within our bodies, slows cellular aging and aids the digestive process making it an excellent accompaniment to a meal and as important to your youthful complexion as daily moisturiser.
 

Sodium level of 1.1mg per litre

Lauretana’s extremely low sodium level of just 1.2mg per litre means that the FDA classifies it as essentially salt free. Not all mineral waters are the same, some have naturally high level of sodium from the source and sometimes sodium is added as part of processing. Tap water, especially hard water, can also have high levels of sodium present, not to mention a whole range of contaminants. Lauretana’s classification as salt free makes it an ideal choice for those on low-salt diets, with high blood pressure or those with concerns about the chemical properties of the water they put into their bodies every day.
 

Ionic composition

Lauretana water’s ionic composition classifies it as bicarbonate and rich in calcium. Bicarbonate-calcic waters are more diuretic than sodic waters, having beneficial effects on the liver and digestion as well as reducing water retention.

The cleansing and hydrating properties of Lauretana water as well as its purity and lightness make it an ideal refreshment as well as being a perfect base for infant formula, coffee, teas, homeopathic remedies and food supplements. Many hospitals and leading health professionals in Lauretana’s native Italy recommend the water for its many health benefits.
