FOR THE HEALTH OF ALL EU CITIZENS: WATER FROM EVERY SOURCE NEEDS TO BE PROMOTED!


Water is an essential nutrient and plays a key role in the human body. From cells and tissues to vital organs, every system in the body requires water to function. Free of calories, sugar and additives, it is the most natural way to stay hydrated. Learn more from on the health benefits of drinking enough water from Dietician Joan Gandy: Why do we need water?

Each natural mineral water or spring water has its own distinctive taste, a unique set of properties and a specific mineral composition. Consumers can choose their water by taste depending on mineral content and their preference for still or sparkling meeting the growing demand for healthy products which retain their original qualities.

Hydration plays a key role in the prevention of some non-communicable diseases and water helps to maintain good physical and mental performance. Available data suggests, however, that Europeans are not drinking enough and are not meeting EFSA’s guidelines for daily water intake.

The health of European citizens must be our common goal! That is why access to water from every source has to be actively encouraged, because all waters support healthier choices and drinking habits.

Natural mineral waters, spring waters and tap water have all a special role to play. No water should be discriminated against. Making water people’s first choice should always be promoted.
