Mineral water

The biggest asset of SPA VILNIUS Anykščiai is the nearby “Šilelis“ mineral water spring, which is extracted from the 312 m deep SPA VILNIUS artesian borehole, from which highly mineralised water is supplied directly to the health centre. The most important natural therapeutic factor is the water of various mineralisation (low, medium, high, and saline), chloride-sulphate-sodium-sodium-calcium-magnesium. Šilelis mineral water is used for various health treatments and drinking. This mineral water and healing mud has a lot of healing properties not available in the famous European springs.

The properties of “Šilelis” healing mineral water are determined by six main ions – sodium (Na+), calcium (Ca2+), magnesium (Mg2+), chlorine (Cl-), sulphate (SO2-4) and hydrocarbonate (НСО-3), as well as many other trace elements useful and necessary for your body.

Mineral water “Šilelis” contains: anions – Cl- 2360; SO2-4 832,75; HCO-3 18,02; cations – Na+ 1440; K+ 27,5; Ca2+ 259,5; Mg2+ 103, and its total mineralisation is 5041,25 mg/dm3 with a pH of 7,66.

  • Calcium is anti-inflammatory, promotes tissue dehydration, strengthens bones, and is essential for blood clotting, nerve impulse transmission, and heart rate regulation. Higher calcium intake speeds up metabolism, resulting in faster fat burning.

  • Magnesium is well absorbed by the body, lowers blood pressure, reduces spasms in the gall bladder, lowers cholesterol levels in the blood and bile, and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system. Magnesium is also an important mineral for our skeleton and bone structure. It is very important in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins, increases stamina, helps to overcome depression and mood swings.

  • Sodium is involved in the body's water metabolism, is essential for the functioning of many enzymes, promotes urine output, is important for maintaining the body's osmotic pressure, regulates pH, retains water in the body, and is involved in the formation of gastric juice. Sodium works together with potassium.

  • Hydrocarbonate stimulates secretory activity in the stomach.

  • Sulphate reduces gastric secretion and its activity, and in combination with magnesium gives a laxative effect.

  • Chlorine has excretory effects on kidney function, lowers the pH of the body's tissues, normalises water metabolism, participates in the production of hydrochloric acid in the stomach, and activates some of the body's enzymes.

  • Potassium is an electrolyte that counteracts the effects of sodium and helps maintain a constant blood pressure. Potassium is also important for maintaining the acid-base balance in the body. Foods rich in potassium maintain an alkaline environment in the body.

With respect to its healing properties and effects of the body, this mineral water surpasses many medications.
