This post sponsored by Gerlosteiner, but all editorial comments, opinions and enthusiasm are strictly my own.
I consider staying healthy and at the top of my game my job. In part because I’m a healthy food blogger, fitness ambassador, and competitive athlete, but also, more importantly, I want to be the best version of ME for myself, my kids, my husband, and my extended family and friends.
If I don’t put my healthy living hydration needs first, then who will? Well, actually, Gerolsteiner will. Gerolsteiner isn’t my coach, my holistic wellness advisor, or even my German masseuse with hard-to-pronounce name – Gerolsteiner is sparkling mineral water! It’s loaded with essential minerals, like magnesium and calcium, that the body needs and craves, especially after intense physical exercise. Read on to find out some benefits of drinking mineral water, how you can participate in the Gerolsteiner Sparkling Detox Challenge and even how to win a case of this body-beneficial water.
As I mentioned, mineral water like Gerolsteiner, is an excellent way to “mineralize” and support your body with electrolytes (such as magnesium and calcium) before and after workouts. It’s my little secret to preventing dehydration and cramping during my marathons, obstacle course races and other endurance events. And, it is my personal experience that small sips of mineral water after a very fatiguing event can help quell that uneasy feeling in the pit of my stomach. Oh, and staying hydrated also keeps my joints lubricated, lessening the discomfort of my osteoarthritis (which I refuse to let slow me down). Not any old water has by back like this, only Gerolsteiner. Mineral water, in general, has to adhere to strict international criteria to be called “highly mineralized” and Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water always exceeds!
Did you know:
- A liter of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water provides 25% of the recommended daily intake of Magnesium.
- A liter of Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water provides 35% of the recommended daily intake of calcium.
- The bicarbonate naturally found in Gerolsteiner Sparkling Mineral Water can help neutralized stomach acids.
- Gerolsteiner doesn’t taste bitter or salty due to the balanced amount of minerals.
