Hello beautiful babes!
I’ve probably talked about a thousand times about how important it is to stay hydrated in order to reach you goals, but let’s talk about minerals for a minute.
More and more people are avoiding dairy and milk products, so it can be hard to get in enough calcium. And who wants to eat spinach every. single. day. Not me, so magnesium can be a hard mineral to get enough of some times, too.
But there is one way you can easily get those minerals in without having to worry about constantly eating the SAME foods everyday…mineral water.
And not just any mineral water, Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water. It has over 2,500 mg of naturally occurring minerals per liter — that’s more than most other mineral waters in the world!
By simply drinking a liter or two of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water each day you can boost your minerals without even having to have to think about it!
I mean you already know you need to drink about 8 glasses of water per day (or about 2.5 liters) so why not just make one or two of those liters mineral water?? So EASY.
The minerals are already dissolved in the water, so your body can more easily absorb them, and you can stay hydrated all at the same time. Multitasking like a girlboss!
Let’s get into the details, shall we?
You already know that calcium is an important mineral for healthy teeth and bones, but did you know that it’s also important for healthy muscles? Calcium helps support the flow of impulses between nerves and muscles.
Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water contains 84 mg of calcium in each 8 ounce serving — which means that you’ll get a third of the daily recommended calcium in just one liter. Yes, please!
Another lesser known mineral is magnesium. Magnesium is also very important for muscle function and a healthy nervous system, but it also supports a healthy metabolism. In 8 ounces of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water you’ll get 26 mg of magnesium, which is 25% of the daily recommendation per liter.
And lastly, is the secret little mineral: bicarbonate. It’s the simple little mineral that helps minimize the effects of heartburn. It helps neutralize excess stomach acid, and balance out the pH in your stomach. In one liter of Gerolsteiner you’ll get 1,800 mg of bicarbonate, which also helps to make the water super refreshing.

Easy Ways to Dress up your Sparkling Mineral Water During the Challenge
To keep things a little interesting, here are a few ways to spice up your mineral water during the challenge and daily.
♥ Add a few pieces of fresh or frozen fruit to your water – try some strawberries and lime, mangoes or pineapple, or just about anything else!
