A nearby mineral water spring is the greatest treasure of SPA VILNIUS, supplying highly-mineralised water directly to the health centre. The most important natural healing factor is the sodium-calcium-magnesium chloride water with various degrees of mineralisation (low, medium, high and brine). There are 12 mineral water springs in the area, and the mineral water is used for various health treatments and for drinking. This mineral water and healing mud has a lot of healing properties not available in the famous European springs.
The properties of the therapeutic mineral water are determined by six major 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.
„Health 1“ mineral water contains: anions – Br- 1.8; Cl- 841.3; SO2-4 55; HCO-3 0.9; cations – Na+ 407.5; K+ 2.4; Ca2+ 79.5; Mg2+ 3.8, and its total mineralisation is 1423.8 mg/dm3 with a pH of 7.0.
„Health 3“ mineral water contains: anions – Br- 7.5; Cl- 3365.0; SO2-4 220; HCO-3 3.6; cations – Na+ 1630; K+ 9.5; Ca2+ 318; Mg2+ 149, and its total mineralisation is 5695.2 mg/dm3 with a pH of 6.5.
- Calcium has an anti-inflammatory effect, stimulates tissue dehydration, and strengthens the bones.
- Magnesium is easily absorbed by the body, it lowers the blood pressure, reduces spasms in the gall bladder, lowers cholesterol in the blood and bile, and has a beneficial effect on the nervous system.
- Sodium is involved in the body’s water metabolism, is essential for the functioning of many enzymes, and promotes urinary excretions.
- Hydrocarbonate stimulates the secretions of the stomach.
- Sulphate reduces gastric secretions and activities, while in combination with magnesium it provides a laxative effect.
- Chlorine stimulates the extraction effects of the kidney functions, while reducing the body’s pH level.
With respect to its healing properties and effects of the body, this mineral water surpasses many medications.
A mineral water treatment is one of the essential treatments for gastrointestinal diseases and metabolic diseases.
Those who have tested the healing potency of the mineral water once will soon return to re-visit this source.
You will be advised by your doctor during the consultation how to use the mineral water, as well as what mineralisation, temperature and frequency is the best for you.
