Santevia Mineralizing Stones

OK, so these sound a lot more flaky than they really are.

You know me; I wouldn't even normally do this sort of thing, except for the fact that they were cheap, and so dead easy to implement, but then... *poof*... all of a sudden we're drinking some beneficial minerals with every glass of water.

This was not borne from a desire to alkalise my water - which is how these stones are primarily marketed. For me, this was just about the minerals, rather than any pH effects.

And, honestly, because they were inexpensive, super easy, and would last for years without my even needing to DO anything hardly at all.  (Boiling them once every six months, they say).

It really just comes down to the fact that you could drink purified water, or you could drink the same purified water with cool shit like calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, and zinc in it.  These are all minerals which are generally considered to be good for you, so why not?

They're really just ROCKS... so it's pretty cool.  Apparently, over the years, they will gradually get smaller. Which of course makes sense, if the minerals are being dissolved into the water.

So now we are not just drinking purified water... but purified mineral water.


I thought it would affect the taste, but it didn't.  Not even a little.  Which is good, I suppose.

Anyway, I'm feeling pretty good about our water situation these days.  And while I don't necessarily recommend that you go out and add mineral stones to your drinking water, if you do happen to be interested, I will say that it is quite an easy thing to do.

And, again, even though these are marketed as alkalising, I try to think of them instead as mineralising.
