Mineral water is a natural beverage that contains essential minerals. It is known for its purity and health benefits. The best mineral waters come from deep underground springs and are naturally filtered by rock and sand. It’s often bottled at the source, so you can be sure that no chemicals have been added after it leaves the ground.

On the other hand, the water you get from your tap is a product of nature and human engineering. The water that comes out of your faucet has been treated and purified, filtered through sand and gravel, and finally disinfected by chlorine to ensure that it is safe to drink.
