Less is more when it comes to this important nutrient. While sodium aids enzyme operation, muscle contraction and maintaining fluids in the body, the typical American diet provides far more sodium than is healthy â€“ more than twice the FDA-recommended 2,300mg per day . Certain brands of bottled water contain enough sodium to be a potential risk to people with high blood pressure â€“ a reminder that itâ€™s always important to check the label.
Calcium promotes bone health and helps prevent osteoporosis, yet the majority of Americans donâ€™t consume enough of this essential mineral. The USDA recommends 1,000 mg per day for adults.
Magnesium regulates muscle contractions and nerve impulse transmission and is also important for bone health. The FDA recommends 400mg daily.
Potassium assists in cell growth, making it an especially important nutrient for youth. It is also essential to heart and kidney function. The FDA – recommended daily intake is 3,500 mg.
Sourced from an isolated spring in Wyomingâ€™s remote Beartooth Mountain Range, American Summits water is organically filtered through layers of mountain granite and mechanically filtered to remove fine particulates a process that leaves traces of beneficial minerals. Low in sodium, each liter of American Summits water contains 65 mg of calcium, 16 mg of magnesium and 1.4 mg of potassium. American Summits has a balanced alkaline level of 7.4-9.1 ph.
