Drinking the mineral water containing calcium is the right way of in-taking calcium with low calories other ingredients. It is rightly claimed after a series of successful research conducted at the Leibniz University Hannover in Germany. Taking calcium contained in mineral water not only fulfills our daily metabolic needs but also helps in burning calories writes the university journal.

Mostly high calories foods naturally contain calcium. Eating these high calories foodstuff fills our calcium requirements but as unwanted, it increases our calories. So in-taking these stuff for healthy metabolism is no more a right choice as it adds obesity and makes our lifestyle a bit difficult.  


How strong our body is to absorb the calcium was the main subject of the study. Researchers took five different food products including dairy and animal products. Each of them had containing 300 mg calcium. Mineral water with maintained 300 mg calcium also experimented in this series.

It was observed, minerals present in those five foodstuffs was absorbed by the other ingredients, on the other hand, the minerals present in water was free from all kinds of external and internal absorption. 21 men and 21 women were eaten these foodstuffs separately on a regular basis. They were also tested on a regular basis. Finally, it was concluded that those who were eaten dairy and other products had become somewhat obsessed while those who were taking water with 300 mg were not found obsessed.

The mineral water as a source of calcium is a calorie-free alternative to milk and dairy products said the research scholar Theresa Greupner in the Leibniz University Hannover press release. She also added in the rising statistics of obsity and over-weight population it is need of the hour to keep a check and balance on the intake of high-calorie foods. 

In the present ecosystem of growing obesity, it is a wise choice to drink mineral water having added calcium.
